Wedding photographer ChiangYuan Hung, was awarded 5th place for photo 1988701 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented ChiangYuan Hung, a Taiwan 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 love the perspective of this image. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before. At almost any ceremony, the veil is eventually removed from the bride, and yet this seems such a unique angle and the moment is perfect, serene, and thoughtful.
