The WPJA contest judges presented Dominique Cabrelli, a France 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.
2007 Q4 Judges
- A beautiful documentary black and white image capturing the emotion of the bride as the groom gives her a kiss. Also, adding to the composition is a great sense of place and the people reacting at right trying to photograph and smiling in reaction. This photo would have never worked if the depth of field weren't shallow making the background soft and impressionistic.
