Wedding photographer Simon Grosset, was awarded 3rd place for photo 62381 in the Groom Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2008 Q3.
- A perfect moment. Much implied, but you dont have to show more than the reactions. This image simply grabs your attention, just as the woman in the bathrobe did to the two men in kilts. It holds your wonder and begs you to speculate as to the nature of the humorous exposure. Is she too wearing a kilt?
The WPJA contest judges presented Simon Grosset, a East Lothian, United Kingdom 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.
