Wedding photographer Franck Boutonnet, was awarded 10th place for photo 1430391 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2014 Q2 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Franck Boutonnet, a France 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.
- I love how this photograph makes me sense color in a monochromatic environment. This image makes us rely on the grey matter in our brain to envision a moment of splendid color splashed across the composition in shades of "vibrant" blacks and whites. As such it strangely morphs into colors more vibrant than the moment itself.
