- The light surrounding this young girl works so well with the floating balloons. Everything comes together as though it too will soon be her white dress and shoes. The pink bow, her white shoes, white dress, white drapes, it's a fun moment and it's a lovely photograph of not only childhood but of a wedding.
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.
