Wedding photographer Daniele Vertelli, was awarded 10th place for photo 914986 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Daniele Vertelli, a Arezzo, Italy 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.
- This image is so beautifully subjective, with those amazing colors. It makes you want to lick it like a popsicle. But what I really like is the moment occurring in the middle - something that might've been lost in the crowd if not for that burst of light behind them. It's an absolutely delightful image.
