Wedding photographer Alessandro Avenali, was awarded 3rd place for photo 1958796 in the Toasting/Speeches category for the WPJA's 2016 Q4 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented Alessandro Avenali, 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.
- The color, the lighting and the moment all came together to create a really nice toast picture. Love the energy of this shot.
- Those flower petals mingled with rice - or is it the spray of champagne? - got my attention! But the true crowd pleaser are the smiles.
