Wedding photographer Ben Pipe, was awarded 1st place for photo 1401261 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.
- I love this photo! It almost seems like it is right out of Mad Men and the 1960s. The body language and expressions are priceless. And, the clean background isn’t a distraction to the happy couple. Even the lighting seems to be out of the 1960s. Great job!
- This image is clean, composed and hilarious. The humorous juxtaposition of emotions from these two newlyweds is captured beautifully by the photographer.
The WPJA contest judges presented Ben Pipe, a London, 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.
