- The frivolity of those bright red heart-shaped balloons created the ideal juxtaposition against the massive, powerful and commanding structure of an aged cathedral. The columns suggest the strength of tradition and the child provides the only reason those columns exist...for love of God and God’s people. It was a wise choice by the photographer to insure that both found their rightful place in composition to tell a thoughtful story.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jonathan Miller, a New South Wales, Australia 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.
