Wedding photographer Jerome Pollos, was awarded 6th place for photo 924516 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jerome Pollos, a Idaho, 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.
- Nice moment and a great use of color. I wonder about stepping back even more to show other people in the perimeter/edges of the frame, to show she sleeps amidst the wedding activity. Also maybe getting lower to show a bit more of the activity, ideally with a shallow dept of field to keep the focus on her.
