Wedding photographer Jenna Shouldice, was awarded 2nd place for photo 1969156 in the Symmetry category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jenna Shouldice, a British Columbia, Canada 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.
- I like the mystery created from the line of umbrellas heading into the unknown. The late afternoon reflecting off the woman’s dress is the perfect focal point.
- This image stood out from the beginning. It has a feeling of romance and adventure. Or is it more mystery and intrigue? Aside from the woman in evening attire, thereʼs little left but a ceremonial procession between sodden trees and foliage. Itʼs a good use of symmetry as a way to build an image as a leading line, a multiplier or divisor that can be incorporated for wherever or whatever the desire.
