Wedding photographer James Nix, was awarded 11th place for photo 1961086 in the Bouquet/Garter (Action) category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented James Nix, a North Carolina, 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.
- Great body language can make a still picture, and this photo was caught at the exact, right moment. I liked the detail of the drink in his left hand. Nice catch by the photographer. (no pun intended!)
