Wedding photographer Scott Schoeggl, was awarded 5th place for photo 1408541 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Scott Schoeggl, 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.
- I can imagine the excitement felt by the photographer whose grand vision led to this grand image. It’s a rich scene as a gold leaf mirror reflects a lush ceremony that “mirrors” the lush light in the painting. The composition has just enough space and depth of field required to include the painting and the light sconce, but taking no chance of losing the focal point - the ceremony.
