The WPJA contest judges presented Siang Loo, a Washington, 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.
- It was refreshing to see a photo that showed the items used to prepare a bride for her wedding. Loved the way the items are used to frame the bride to tell the story of the day.,
- The room's disarray is a smartly observed situation that suggests hurried preparation as well as providing a photo that ultimately will complement more controlled, elegant scenes from the wedding itself.,
