Wedding photographer Rino Cordella, was awarded 6th place for photo 1396686 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Rino Cordella, a Lecce, 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.

  • Here’s a delightful moment as prying eyes sneak a peek beneath an archway to create a small stage. But it wouldn’t be complete without a good use of selective focus directing the viewer’s eyes to those spying eyes that "steal the scene.” And soon, those men in the foreground will be on the big stage as actors in the wedding ceremony where their scene will be stolen again, this time, by the bride.
