Wedding photographer Jeremy Igo, was awarded 16th place for photo 134741 in the Creative Portrait category for the WPJA's 2009 Q1.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jeremy Igo, a North Carolina, 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.
- The gorgeous backdrop and the whimsical addition of the umbrella help make this photo feel like it's straight out of a fairy tale. I love that the photographer took a few steps back to take in the whole scene, because I really think the setting has a character all its own here.
