Wedding photographer Siang Loo, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1079521 in the Musicians & DJs category for the WPJA's 2012 Q4 Contest.
- A bride’s delight, with interest added by including the crowd.
- Fun moment, though the composition could be a little cleaner. The musician's eyes and body language are great.
- A fantastic exchange is captured here between a street performer and the bride despite a distracting pole cutting the frame in half.
The WPJA contest judges presented Siang Loo, a Washington, 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.
