Wedding photographer Obi Nwokedi, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1960511 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
- I don’t feel the photographer’s presence in this image at all - just the subject’s anticipation. The crisp and rich black & white tones are exquisite.
- Either these bridesmaids are waiting for their cue, or they are eager to see the scene, or, most likely both. Regardless of the why is the what - a delightful slice from the wedding day.
The WPJA contest judges presented Obi Nwokedi, a London, United Kingdom 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.
