Wedding photographer Rick Collins, was awarded 2nd place in the Groom Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2013 Q3 Contest.
- This was a difficult class to judge. I went through the photographs and ﬁnally selected my picks. When I went back to ﬁnd an honorable mention I started looking at this photography--it was not in my ﬁrst selects. When I thought about it--this photograph is what being a photojournalist is all about-- seeing a spontaneous moment and having the ability to get in the right place to make a picture and the timing to make it before it goes away.
