2007 Q3 Judges
- Very well done, great emotional moment, good use of the frame. little too dark on the groom perhaps. Tender and caring. Love the darkness and mood rather then the glitz Of the typical stretch limo and mirrored ceiling. The is what a wedding moment is all about. Wonderful documentary moment. The frame is well used and the story clearly told and gracefully captured
The WPJA contest judges presented Peter Pawinski, a Illinois, 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.
