  • The body language of 'Charlie Chaplin' says it all. And, the inclusion of the wedding cake let's us know he is performing at a wedding. The juxtaposition is very funny!
  • A throw back in time. I love the blank stare of the impersonator juxtaposed against the elegant tiered wedding cake. One has to wonder what he's got cooking beneath that bowler hat. Great vision on the part of the photographer.

The WPJA contest judges presented Maik Dobiey, a Lima, Peru 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.
