Wedding photographer Ronald Soliman, was awarded 1st place for photo 75691 in the Kids (Being Kids) category for the WPJA's 2008 Q4.

The WPJA contest judges presented Ronald Soliman, a Delaware, 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.

Judges

  • This is as close to perfect as you can get in a candid photograph.  It’s so good it almost looks choreographed.  The lens compression, the composition--just excellent.  It’s cropped very tightly, but that just emphasizes the moment.
  • The kids, obviously, make this image. However, everything else is also working in the frame. The bride's dress sweeping up from the bottom of the frame; the cheering bridal party in the background; the tight cropping into the subjects from all sides forces the viewer into the frame. Sweet, memorable image.
