Wedding photographer Matt Adcock, was awarded 2nd place for photo 444066 in the Lit Portrait category for the WPJA's 2010 Q3.
- Absolutely fantastic image and excellent execution. The lighting is great, the concept is great. I love all the little detail including the puddle splashing off of the womans foot. GREAT JOB!
- What good sports to actually pose in the rain! Beautiful moment and the backlight is spectacular highlighting this couple as they splash water and kiss. Also the orange glow of lights behinds them add depth to the image. Nice texture of rain throughout.
The WPJA contest judges presented Matt Adcock, a Quintana Roo, Mexico 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.
