Wedding photographer Luis Efigénio, was awarded 10th place for photo 1693771 in the Weather category for the WPJA's 2015 Q3 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Luis Efigénio, a Portugal 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.
- At least the cake wasn’t ruined by the rain, and that would definitely be something for a bride to be grateful for. The woman in white, one would assume, is the bride but knowing for sure doesn’t really matter. This is a successful image regardless. Of course, I suspect there were more than a few gleeful children who would later join her in gratitude. It’s all in the lighting...that’s what makes this photo glow.
