- Itʼs hard to ignore a sleeping relative especially when thereʼs another one pointing him out. Not to mention the folks behind him who seem as if theyʼre trying hard not to snicker. What makes it humorous is how beautifully sincere all these shenanigans are. It is often said that “truth is stranger than fiction,” to which one might add, and funnier too.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jay Hoque, 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.
