Wedding photographer Sigit Prasetio, was awarded 4th place for photo 1500886 in the First Dance category for the WPJA's 2014 Q3 Photography Contest.
- Such elegance and drama aptly recorded by a camera in the hands of an astute photographer who was well-aware of the entire scene and thus graced this tender beauty with a sensitive press of a shutter button. I've had moments like this before me as a photojournalist and they can feel rapturous, as though you are in the dance itself while shooting.
The WPJA contest judges presented Sigit Prasetio, a Bali, Indonesia 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.
