  • Oh my! Someone forgot to place this enthused tyke in the trunk. It makes me wonder if his parents use one of those tacky leashes on him while out shopping. But, I suspect this little man is interested in one thing alone, something likely valued by an unpredictable number of adults in attendance too - freedom. Alas it seems in this lovely moment that even “grandpa” will be quick to snare this child before too much havoc sets the room on fire.

The WPJA contest judges presented Chris Shum, 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.
