Wedding photographer Chris Shum, was awarded 20th place for photo 246806 in the Details (Found) category for the WPJA's 2009 Q3.
The WPJA contest judges presented Chris Shum, a California, 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.
- This is a cherished detail. It stood out. But, I wish the photographer had focused more on the words in the note.
