Wedding photographer Emin Kuliyev, was awarded 5th place for photo 426786 in the Parents category for the WPJA's 2010 Q3.
- Photographer captures a great reaction of the mom and her daughter with very similar expressions that mirror each other. The fact that they are holding hands shares their love and it’s just a beautiful behind the scenes moment that brings great joy!! Framing and choice of lens is well done where you can still see a suitcase at right and get a sense for the hotel room.
The WPJA contest judges presented Emin Kuliyev, a New York, 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.
