Wedding photographer Henrikas Kudirka, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1069731 in the Great Natural Light category for the WPJA's 2012 Q4 Contest.
- It's nice to see a scene that's not often photographed. The beautiful light and setting here elevates a mundane action into something grand and even holy.
The WPJA contest judges presented Henrikas Kudirka, a Lithuania 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.
