Wedding photographer Mike Greener, was awarded 8th place for photo 1356196 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2013 Q4 Contest.
- No one seems aware of the photographer here which adds to the feeling of intimacy. It's not easy to balance that many people into one frame. With all the faces, it's an image you can really linger on. I like the serious feeling to it as well.
The WPJA contest judges presented Mike Greener, a Montana, 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.
