Wedding photographer Luca Panvini, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1577066 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2014 Q4 Photography Contest.
- Just a great picture of leaving the church. Great expression on bride's face, how her head is tilted back. The crowd around her, rice in the air, all add to the perfect moment and composition of the image.
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.
