Wedding photographer Scott Juarez, was awarded 1st place for photo 117576 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2009 BRIDES Magazine.
- Silly and graphic, Juarez’s photo froze a behind-the-scenes moment as a mom helped her daughter, the flower girl, into her dress. The image is full of clever contrasts—the tiny formal dress and the woman’s jeans, the headless subjects and their visible feet. You can almost hear the little girl shouting, “Mom! Get me out of here!” Looking like part puppeteer, part magician, this slice of life moment has humorous overtones and was well seen by the photographer. Another image in a very humorous vein, this great slice of life is well composed and well-captured.
