Wedding photographer Siang Loo, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1295751 in the Bouquet/Garter (Action) category for the WPJA's 2013 Q4 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Siang Loo, a Washington, United States 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 was a strong photo. Well composed to get the bride's reflection included in the photo. Very good “seeing” by the photographer. Beautiful light.
- This is an impressive image with some fantastic lighting. It’s compositionally perfect with that gorgeous bluish-cyan often seen in the fleeting moments of twilight. Better still is that the bride is captured in the window reflection. This is about as good as it gets.
