Wedding photographer Chris Shum, was awarded 18th place for photo 55481 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2007 Q1.
- I like the composition of this photo and the moment it captures of the couple kissing and paying no attention to the group of men standing nearby.
The WPJA contest judges presented Chris Shum, a California, 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.
