The WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) is, as its name suggests, a professional association that "represents professional photographers skilled in the documentation of weddings and events in a candid, unobtrusive style". I'm delighted to hear that a picture that I took earlier this year has been shortlisted for the 'Reception' category of their latest competition.
This picture was taken at Irene & Mike's wedding at Ham House in Richmond earlier this year. In the words of the contest judges:
The photographer captured joy within tradition. The expressions are easy to read in the black and white tones.
