View Profile

Wedding photographer Siang Loo, was awarded 1st place for photo 322816 in the Creative Portrait category for the WPJA's 2009 Q4.


  • The composition is excellent and I love the sense of scale.
  • This picture is excellent, nicely composed, beautifully toned -- classy.
  • The photographer was creative by putting his subjects in the far background and in the corner of the frame. This, and the pose that they have struck, along with the crash of the wave, give this photograph a sensational mood.

The WPJA contest judges presented Siang Loo, a Washington, 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.
