- The moment is what put this one at the top of the winners list. Her flower basket is long forgotten in her quest to put an end to her flower girl duties. The guests, all turned around to check out the action, really top off the image. The reluctant flower girl is a great moment in very bad light, but content is king and everyone at that wedding will remember this moment - she will get equal billing with the bride in the stories for years to come - glad the photographer captured it
The WPJA contest judges presented Reena Rose Sibayan, a New Jersey, United States wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
