Wedding photographer Pam Lauhachai, was awarded 11th place for photo 288456 in the Reception Ambiance category for the WPJA's 2009 Q4.
- A fun yet somewhat mysterious photograph. Excellent composition, including the string of lights at the top of the frame and leading us into the frame along the walk. The various colors, dark, empty areas and distance of the subjects combine to lend an air of mystery.
The WPJA contest judges presented Pam Lauhachai, a Bangkok, Thailand 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.
