Wedding photographer Luigi Rota, was awarded 7th place for photo 1841821 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2016 Q1 Photography Contest.
- This image had a “1950’s” quality to it because of the light and the black and white presentation. The picture is fun to look at because of all the expressions, but the little girl on the left makes the frame.
The WPJA contest judges presented Luigi Rota, a Lecco, Italy 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.
