Wedding photographer Sybil Rondeau, was awarded 1st place for photo 1624856 in the Toasting/Speeches category for the WPJA's 2015 Q2 Photography Contest.
- Too funny; I want to be at this wedding. Well-composed chaos, (though some of the faces are lost) but it didn’t matter because the bride and groom are the focus and their faces are great.
- Fun photo of a bride and groom reaching to personally toast with each individual guest..
- My goodness! What a conundrum. This is a moment where toasting looks more like Twister. Arms and glasses fly left and right, this way and that way. Just follow the yellow and bubbly road; “Hands and arms and glasses… oh my!” But before I venture too far let’s all bow to a wonderful image. It’s composed well. The lighting is spot on and most importantly the moment is there before us with unassailable veracity.
The WPJA contest judges presented Sybil Rondeau, 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.
