Wedding photographer Adam Riley, was awarded 1st place for photo 1233976 in the First Dance category for the WPJA's 2013 Q3 Contest.
- Deﬁnitely the best of this class, and photograph that the newlyweds and their families will love and look at for years. Not only does it capture the bond between loved ones, but also it shows the faces of many of the guests at the wedding--a good job by the photographer.
- I like the way this image is separated, very good exposure and composition making the picture look like a theater set.
The WPJA contest judges presented Adam Riley, a Manchester (Greater), United Kingdom 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.
