- Love the backlighting here. It looks like a shoot that initially went wrong with wind having its way with the umbrella, but the photographer and couple still hung in the moment.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jocemar Voss Kovacs, a Santa Catarina, 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.
