Wedding photographer Luca Panvini, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1492231 in the Send Off/Departure category for the WPJA's 2014 Q3 Photography Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Luca Panvini, a Roma, 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.

2014 Q3 Photography Contest Judges


  • This is a great gift to the client to establish sense-of-place of the wedding. I love this as a final image of the day.
  • There is a subtle and gentle feel to this photo that makes you feel as though you are an unassuming traveler watching a rite and passage of village life. The viewer becomes purveyor insistent on a vicarious journey with VIP access to the inner realm of something more. With all of the minimalist simplicity of this image, I find it intriguing that it is almost fantastical and larger than life. Wow. What a journey it is when good photojournalism holds the reins.
