Wedding photographer Christina Craft, was awarded 6th place for photo 140716 in the Creative Portrait category for the WPJA's 2009 Q1.
The WPJA contest judges presented Christina Craft, a British Columbia, 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.
- I am a sucker for the simple strong image. Such a wonderful and comfortable expression on her face. You really feel the connection between these two people and for a portrait of this kind, you couldn't ask for anything more!
