Wedding photographer Andrea Sampoli, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1664126 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2015 Q3 Photography Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Andrea Sampoli, a Siena, 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.
