Wedding photographer Jamie Ousby, was awarded 4th place for photo 1991321 in the Wildcard Portrait category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.
The WPJA contest judges presented Jamie Ousby, a Hong Kong S.A.R., China 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 limited depth of field was the intriguing part of the image, focusing on the bride, the wisp of her hair adding to the tender, quiet, and almost exclusive moment between the couple.
