Wedding photographer Ettore Colletto, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1245561 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2013 Q3 Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Ettore Colletto, a Messina, 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.


  • This is a nice photograph! The photographer preserved a most important and happy moment for this couple. Normally I am not a fan of tilting the camera or the image, but in this picture it works to give the photograph just a bit more energy. Looks like the photographer was off to the side with a long lens so there was no disturbance to the wedding ceremony. (Recently I attended a wedding in Cape Town, South Africa where the wedding photographer came right down the aisle and stood in front of the couple for the kiss photograph. Everyone in the church was dressed perfectly, men wearing suits, etc. The wedding photographer was wearing shorts and a red polo shirt. He had a fixed 85 and the 70-200 zoom. Later, I had to lend him my 28-70mm lens. He had no wide angle and was attempting to make the family photo (about thirty people) and his back was to the wall. --THAT'S HOW NOT TO COVER A WEDDING.)
