Wedding photographer Siang Loo, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1142886 in the Creative Portraits category for the WPJA's 2013 Q1 Contest.
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.
- Great time of day produced the perfect shadows for a walk on the beach. Wonderfully executed.
- It takes planning to do this sort of portrait. The image boarders on the edge of Hallmark but I don't care. Well executed all around. Beautiful landscape.
- Never seen anything quite this loose, with so much impact. Angle and time of day is perfect.
