2nd place in Ceremony

Germany Wedding Photographer Andreas Pollok made this image through the flowergirls of the bride and groom kissing after the indoor ceremony.

Wedding photographer Andreas Pollok, was awarded 2nd place in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.


  • The idea of the flower girls in the foreground, candidly framing the main subject behind, is a very gutsy move. The couple's affectionate embrace is a moment you really don't want to miss, and to shoot low between the children means you could you could really blow this moment entirely. The photographer took this heroic, risky approach and created a really charming image.
