Wedding photographer Artur Jakutsevich, was awarded 10th place for photo 1418476 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2014 Q2 Photography Contest.
- Selfie's are ubiquitous and, in this case, created here in no mere social media posting. It's a fun moment to see a couple's off-hand photography contrasted against the reverent background of religious iconography. This image abounds with good composition, lighting and a strong moment. One can only hope that their self-made photo was half as good.
The WPJA contest judges presented Artur Jakutsevich, a 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.
