Wedding photographer Raman El Atiaoui, was awarded 1st place for photo 999006 in the Dancing (Action) category for the WPJA's 2012 Q3 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Raman El Atiaoui, a Hessen, Germany 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.
- Color, moment, intensity, beauty — an image with it all!
- This photo was just pretty. I love the perception that the confetti is exploding from the kiss - really nice backlight use.
