1st place in Emotion

Wedding Photographer Emanuele Vignaroli of Perugia, Italy

Wedding photographer Emanuele Vignaroli, was awarded 1st place for photo 960306 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2012 Q3 Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Emanuele Vignaroli, a Perugia, 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.


  • What a touching display. My heart goes out to the bride. Catching moments like this one of a bride hugging an urn is what being a photographer is all about.
  • A very unusual and poignant photograph in a hard to win category.
