Wedding photographer Siang Loo, was awarded 20th place for photo 65601 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2008 Q4.
The WPJA contest judges presented Siang Loo, a Washington, 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.
- The photographer has captured the bride in what appears to be a mood of excitement and anticipation. The photo caught my eye the first time I went through the category. You have nailed the exposure. The tones are excellent throughout the image. The windowsill lines bring us right to the bride.
