4th place in Details (Found)
The WPJA contest judges presented Leandro Donato, a São Paulo, 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.
- A successful detail shot can tell a story and in this case that's exactly what it did. The dress is so grand that the bride has to be on her toes, on top of the stool, to even reach it. All this caught in a detail of her limbs, but made you pay attention to the story.
- Nice little lyrical detail. Her being on her toes brings a lovely energy to this photo.
Wedding photographer Leandro Donato, was awarded 4th place for photo 1841656 in the Details (Found) category for the WPJA's 2016 Q1 Photography Contest.
