2008 Q1 Judges
- Nice way to photograph the couple's sendoff. Created a whimsical scene. Might try a rim light on well-wishers (just a thought, but sometimes a guest is willing to hold a sidelight on a moment's notice. However I realize how difficult these scenes are to capture to begin with).
The WPJA contest judges presented Matt Adcock, a Quintana Roo, Mexico 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.
