Wedding photographer Buffy Goodman, was awarded 6th place for photo 115986 in the Kids category for the WPJA's 2009 BRIDES Magazine.
- This flower girl’s befuddled expression takes the cake. Her difference in height breaks the continuity of the staggered line of bridesmaids, and the cropping at their waists focuses the attention on the little girl.
The WPJA contest judges presented Buffy Goodman, a Alberta, Canada 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.
