Wedding photographer Peter Karasev, was awarded 1st place for photo 616476 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2011 Q1 Contest.
- What a nice shot, beautifully composed and fun, surprising and catching the emotion just right in all the faces. What a different picture.
The WPJA contest judges presented Peter Karasev, a Russia 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.
