Wedding photographer Luigi Rota, was awarded 9th place for photo 1963901 in the Cake Cutting category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
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.
- In shadow and light the crowd cheers the coupleʼs kiss as they prepare to slice the cake. Itʼs a brave image. Most of us would likely be in a different position for this and would have missed the best.
