Wedding photographer Jud McCrehin, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1012301 in the Dancing (Action) category for the WPJA's 2012 Q3 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jud McCrehin, a Virginia, 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.
- This is a great example of the photographer capitalizing on a gift – a great face. Good lighting and the right composition made the most of this really nice moment.
