Wedding photographer Cristiano Ostinelli, was awarded 2nd place for photo 946906 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2012 Q3 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Cristiano Ostinelli, a Italy 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.
- There were so many wonderful images in this category, but this image had a great angle that captured both faces. It is clean and tight and leaves a powerful impression of the event. Well done.
