Wedding photographer Luciana Alexandre, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1399396 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.
- Some images simply can’t be beaten. They rise to the top of the stack like love at first sight. With a giant heart as a backdrop, a bride and groom dance through a white cloud from a smoke machine creating a visual symphony of romance and passion and desire and love and… a fiery kiss that seemingly sets her aflame. Wow. I wish I had made that photo - a comment I only make with a sense of reverence.
The WPJA contest judges presented Luciana Alexandre, a Bahia, Brazil 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.
