Wedding photographer Paul Simpson, was awarded 13th place for photo 690511 in the Transportation category for the WPJA's 2011 Q2 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Paul Simpson, a Dorset, United Kingdom 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.
- Inclement weather may not be fun to deal with but it does often make for more interesting photographs. The red car would have stood out from the others even in the sun, but the water droplets on the vehicle add texture and the umbrella's a humorous addition to the scene, particularly since the groom doesn't get to share in its protection.
