Wedding photographer Andrea Corsi, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1391081 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Andrea Corsi, a Arezzo, 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.
- There’s more to this image than the obvious humor of the scene. Notice how the crop itself adds a necessary tension to the moment. You can almost feel the discomfort of trying to tie a bow while strapped to an infant. The falling sash at the back of the dress and the arms of the woman act as leading lines to the focal point of the image. This is a good example of those times where the “whispering” moment finds its booming voice through excellent photography.
