Wedding photographer Luca Panvini, was awarded 12th place for photo 2003126 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.

The WPJA contest judges presented Luca Panvini, 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.

  • Looks like quite the ordeal getting this garment over the bride's head. Even the angels agree! What makes this photograph is the juxtaposition of the painting in the background. It's a delightful image and a lot of fun to look at.
