- Hopefully this bride wasn’t getting married on Friday the 13th! Nicely framed moment of the black cat on her white dress with fearful expression on the bride. Good depth of field and lens selection keeps the dad or groom in focus. ,
The WPJA contest judges presented Janis Ratnieks, a London, 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.
