Wedding photographer Merri Cyr, was awarded 9th place for photo 262486 in the Bride Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2009 Q4.
The WPJA contest judges presented Merri Cyr, a Massachusetts, 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.
- Very spontaneous image and I like the wide view with all the negative space. I wish there was a bit more detail in the white of the dress which would make it snap out a bit more but still a very nice image.
