Wedding photographer Emily Liang, was awarded 1st place for photo 1914801 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2016 Q3 Photography Contest .
- A very classic behind-the-scenes photo, but also well done. The number of expressions caught was a bit unique, and this angle can make a powerful statement about the bride. Nice work.
- Every face focused on the bride should be studied and lingered upon to really view their emotions.
The WPJA contest judges presented Emily Liang, a New Jersey, 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.
