Wedding photographer Adam Welch, was awarded 8th place for photo 75511 in the Kids (Being Kids) category for the WPJA's 2008 Q4.
The WPJA contest judges presented Adam Welch, a Colorado, 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.
- Nice contrast of sizes, shapes and ages. An intimate and loving moment between an elder and a child.
- What a great moment. The kid is just enveloped in his grandfather (who I've nicknamed Grandfather Bear). Talk about creating a cherished moment. This is it. If I ever have grandkids, I hope there's a photographer good enough to capture a moment like this in our lives. Simple and clean. Its ALL about the moment and the subjects' relationship.
