Wedding photographer Franck Boutonnet, was awarded 13th place for photo 748866 in the Humor category for the WPJA's 2011 Q3 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Franck Boutonnet, a France 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.
- Funny expressions in this photograph make us wonder what the bride is exactly doing with her hands. This is a photograph that asks more questions but pulls us in to try and figure it all out. It is successful in that respect.
