Wedding photographer William Lambelet, was awarded 1st place for photo 1992581 in the Mirrors (creative use of) category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.
- Photography is painting with light, and in this case, it was done to perfection and adds to the drama of a quiet moment. The texture of the walls against the softness of the bride and the girls, and the color of the background against the white of the clothes makes this image a standout.
- An accidental glimpse into all the waiting that happens on wedding day. Nice use of natural light too.
The WPJA contest judges presented William Lambelet, a France 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.
