Wedding photographer Massimiliano Magliacca, was awarded 9th place for photo 1970146 in the Humor category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented Massimiliano Magliacca, a Roma, 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.
- Thereʼs something about being on stage with his new wife that brings out the inner Superman in this groom and the party is on fire with splashes of light everywhere. Who knows if this was purely incidental or if the photographer deliberately lined it up. Either way, itʼs still a humorous photo although the answer to one could mean it would be best for him not to look deeply into her eyes.
