Wedding photographer Wellington Fugisse, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1706956 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2015 Q4 Photography Contest.
- It is time to parrr-ty and this bride is giving it her all. Of course, what makes the image work is the celebratory hands that lead us into and frame the moment of celebration. The image is artfully done by creating the right amount of intensity while parsing out any ambiguity about who is the star of the show. I can think of few other images I’ve seen that have accomplished such a monumental “task” with such aplomb.
The WPJA contest judges presented Wellington Fugisse, a Brazil 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.
