Wedding photographer Simon Cassanas, was awarded 1st place for photo 929716 in the Silhouettes, Shadows & Good Light category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 Contest.
- Interesting angles and light with perfectly placed people.
- This image is so much about the photographer looking at the situation in a new way to find a different kind of image with multiple planes of activity.
The WPJA contest judges presented Simon Cassanas, 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.
