Wedding photographer David Jackson, was awarded 13th place for photo 76911 in the Kids (Being Kids) category for the WPJA's 2008 Q4.
The WPJA contest judges presented David Jackson, a Wisconsin, 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.
- A really nice moment. I usually don’t like grab shots that are center weighted but in this case I didn't mind at all. I kept coming back to this image because of it’s charm, and the impact of technology on the kids--and they don’t even realize it’s relatively new, to them it’s old hat. The boy_girl aspect of it is very cute as well.
