Wedding photographer Luigi Rota, was awarded 2nd place for photo 63556 in the TTD - Rural category for the WPJA's 2008 Trash the Dress.
The WPJA contest judges presented Luigi Rota, a Lecco, Italy 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.

- When we think â€œruralâ€ we defiantly visualize remote areas or even CORN FIELDS. What bride would ever want to go in a corn field? Great composition and nice layering with the background hay bails.
