Wedding photographer Wellington Fugisse, was awarded 9th place for photo 1707171 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2015 Q4 Photography Contest.
- This is a fun moment between the bride and her friends - the clamor around her, smiles, and laughter surrounding those gorgeous braids.
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.
