The WPJA contest judges presented Julie Ambos, a Florida, 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 picture is amazing, because even though it's a still life of clothing, you get to finish the action in your mind. The groomsmen gathered to dress, rushing around. There is a sense of anticipation which was unique for such a quiet image.
- The evenly-weighted composition is foundational here. It’s a fun graphic photo that speaks to the role that rooms play on a wedding day. The ties and jacket are also waiting behind the scenes, to be wed together on this day.
Wedding photographer Julie Ambos, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1842276 in the Details (Found) category for the WPJA's 2016 Q1 Photography Contest.
