Wedding photographer Lyndsey Goddard, was awarded 1st place for photo 1943986 in the Kids (Being Kids) category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
- What a great photo- the shot of the child framed with the bride and groom is spot-on.
- If ever there was a face of prolonged, undeniable childhood angst, this would be it, or at least among the top ten children who suffer through weddings. This poor child canʼt stand the view, canʼt stand the sound, heck - canʼt even stand at all. For her, there is no moment but her own. Everything else is a mind-numbing blur of an eternal red carpet. What a delight it is to view this classic moment masterfully executed.
The WPJA contest judges presented Lyndsey Goddard, 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.
