Wedding photographer Anne Ryan, was awarded 14th place for photo 491436 in the Parents category for the WPJA's 2010 Q3.
- Very sweet moment of the bride dabbing a tear from her father’s face as his expression changes to a smile in the back of a limo. The photo is framed nicely to include them holding hands. Wide angle does distort a little bit on both sides of the image.
The WPJA contest judges presented Anne Ryan, a Illinois, 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.
