Wedding photographer Jerome Pollos, was awarded 10th place for photo 1699991 in the Parents category for the WPJA's 2015 Q3 Photography Contest.
- The heartfelt and passionate emotion of the men embracing is in stark contrast to the relatively expressionless visage of attendees exiting the church to meet the bride and groom. I liked this photo because of the juxtaposition of the men hugging in relation to the overall setting.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jerome Pollos, a Idaho, United States 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.
