The WPJA contest judges presented Danilo Coluccio, a Reggio Calabria, 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.
- Every inch of this photo is perfect. The bride and groom flanked by the band, the shadow of the bride and groom holding hands at the front center of the image, the trail of family behind the couple. It truly is a fine example of the decisive moment with every corner of space used to the fullest. Each segment of the image can be sliced to show a perfect angle. Well done!!
