Wedding photographer Philip Stephenson, was awarded 5th place for photo 1963606 in the Bouquet/Garter (Action) category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
- A traditional bouquet shot, but very well-executed. The expressions were really strong and was technically excellent.
The WPJA contest judges presented Philip Stephenson, a France 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.
