8th place in Getting Ready
The WPJA contest judges presented Pedro Damian Arevalo, a United States 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 photographer used a well placed strobe to make the bride stand out in front of all the work being done for the wedding. The worker bees shrouded in yellow tungsten light are a good contrast to the daylight balanced bride. It looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Wedding photographer Pedro Damian Arevalo, was awarded 8th place for photo 876321 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2012 Q1 Contest.
