The WPJA contest judges presented Kristin Reimer, a New Jersey, 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 strong image. Love the bride's hand on her head and the hands reaching in from the sides of the frame. Great detail in the whites and very rich blacks also help to create drama and enhance the graphic appeal.
- I love how the bride in this photo looks like a blossoming rose.
- Wonderful control of light, nice moment and a delicate repetition of hands and arms reaching in to form an aesthetically beautiful photograph.
