Wedding photographer John Nassari, was awarded 6th place for photo 885391 in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2012 Q1 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented John Nassari, a London, United Kingdom 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.
- This is some good seeing. Maybe a little bit too much wide angle, but I cannot see the situation so I will not second-guess too much. I love the hand on the belly. That little detail takes this photo from kind-of-nice to almost-painful, making me feel the tension. Framing works well, too.
