Wedding photographer Andrea Corsi, was awarded 1st place for photo 1642781 in the Cake Cutting category for the WPJA's 2015 Q2 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Andrea Corsi, a Arezzo, 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.
- Great light, great composition and the joy of the moment captured at just the right time.
- Great lighting of this jovial scene. It’s like a dance started while the cake cutting was going on. Fun.
- Look at the brilliant interplay of subjects and how artfully composed this image is. There is a lot happening at once here but it seamlessly gathers into the perfect silk purse of mood, feel, emotion - the moment. Compositionally sound with good subject to background separation, it’s hard to imagine a recreation. But, of course, nothing else feels (or resonates) like a true moment.
