Wedding photographer Ingrid Firmhofer, was awarded 11th place for photo 138361 in the Creative Portrait category for the WPJA's 2009 Q1.
- A very nice portrait capturing the essence of the couple’s togetherness while the rest of the world moves around them. Cliché when put into words but it makes for a lovely picture.
The WPJA contest judges presented Ingrid Firmhofer, a Germany 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.
