Wedding photographer Matt Theilen, was awarded 6th place for photo 1841331 in the Details (Found) category for the WPJA's 2016 Q1 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Matt Theilen, a California, 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.
- This image just touched my heart, so much care, so much thought into making sure the kerchief was folded just so. The composition worked into focusing on the task at hand.
