Wedding photographer Aht Yomyai, was awarded 8th place for photo 1679276 in the Weather category for the WPJA's 2015 Q3 Photography Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Aht Yomyai, a Thailand 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.

  • Squint your eyes and that white tiled floor looks like a white sand beach on some far- flung tropical island but that’s where our imagined scene meets reality as a fan stands in for lack of a “cool ocean breeze.” It was only a dream. It’s a playful image of a universal experience.
