Wedding photographer Christophe Pasteur, was awarded 12th place for photo 911956 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 Contest.
- A tableau of color, shape and pattern work together to produce an elegant symmetry that seems to float as effortlessly as the balloons pressing against the ceiling. At first glance, my eyes are drawn to that colorful doorway. But then, the red lamp pulls me back. From there I search a room of balloons and arrive at two children happily immersed in their pursuit of a prize - a prize currently drifting on the ceiling.
The WPJA contest judges presented Christophe Pasteur, 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.
