Wedding photographer Andrea Brucculeri, was awarded 12th place for photo 1389086 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Andrea Brucculeri, a Roma, Italy 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.
- The cold blue tone of this photo is in perfect contrast of the warm yellow and orange hues of the bride getting ready. In addition, the framing is perfect, with the wedding dress on one side and the opened door with the key hanging from the lock. This photo has a classy and timeless feel to it.
