Wedding photographer Marianne Earthy, was awarded 10th place for photo 75161 in the Kids (Being Kids) category for the WPJA's 2008 Q4.
The WPJA contest judges presented Marianne Earthy, a London, 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.
- I wish there was a caption to this picture, but I suppose I'm going to have to assume this is a moment before the wedding when these girls were being told how to stand with the bride at the altar. It's fun to imagine what is going on in the minds of these two. A glimpse into their future. Beautiful light and the informality of the rehearsal work really well together. The wedding dress also adds a piece of nice storytelling.
