Wedding photographer Philip Thomas, was awarded 12th place for photo 985816 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2012 Q3 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Philip Thomas, a Texas, 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.
Captured with the Leica M9 and a summilux 35mm. I love to capture emotive subjects and of-course weddings are no exception. This is the brides niece and one of my favorite shots from 2012.
