10th place in Getting Ready

Wedding Photographer Emmanuel Bergère of , France

Wedding photographer Emmanuel Bergère, was awarded 10th place for photo 405646 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2010 Q2.

The WPJA contest judges presented Emmanuel Bergère, a France 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.


  • The more I looked at this photo the more I like it. It wasn’t just the fact they were both smoking, but their stance was so similar. It was as if they were twins, thinking the same thoughts, both wondering what’s going to happen next. Taking advantage of the window light was nice touch to make the subjects stand out.
