Wedding photographer Emin Kuliyev, was awarded 2nd place for photo 703256 in the Humor category for the WPJA's 2011 Q3 Contest.
- A great catch of subtle humor. Nice compositional balance plus the repetition of the embrace in the artwork.,
- Everything works in this image from the photograph on the wall to the framing of the two ladies and the man and woman on the edge of the frame. The expression and gesture on the guy between both ladies is fantastic.,
The WPJA contest judges presented Emin Kuliyev, a New York, 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.
