Wedding photographer Joe Brier, was awarded 1st place for photo 970411 in the The Cake category for the WPJA's 2012 Q3 Contest.
- Excellent angle. Stood out among the rest of the entries. High vantage point made for a common scene but seen from a different perspective.
- The high angle adds a nice dimension to an already fine moment.
The WPJA contest judges presented Joe Brier, a Massachusetts, 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.
