Wedding photographer David Butler II, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1165441 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2013 Q2 Contest.
- Two is always better than one, in my book. But there is like 10 people in this photo all having some kind of emotional breakdown or something. So it must be good! Seriously, the framing of the two groups helps show the scale of the moment. Having the one good face kept it simple, though.
- Every element of this photograph, with all the hugs accenting the expression on the face of the woman seated conveys the emotions of the moment.
