Wedding photographer Alessandro Baglioni, was awarded 12th place for photo 629786 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2011 Q1 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Alessandro Baglioni, a Grosseto, Italy 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.
- This is a wonderful example of a silent moment beautifully exploited by the photographer. The champagne bucket in the foreground, the piece of paper - once folded - at his feet, the opened jewelry box on the night stand, the lace behind him, all speak to a story that unfolds ever so slightly, until revealed on his face.
