Wedding photographer Andrea Bibeault, was awarded 3rd place for photo 614836 in the Silhouettes / Shadows and Good Light category for the WPJA's 2010 Q4.
The WPJA contest judges presented Andrea Bibeault, a Nebraska, 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.
- All elements work effectively, in harmonious balance.
- A perfect use of lighting, composition and the ability to capture a meaningful moment. These are all elements which make this picture a great picture. It reminds me some Flemish school paintings.
