This week, we were delighted to learn that one of images from a 2012 wedding has won 2nd place in an international wedding photography competition. The image was submitted to the first quarterly competition of the AGWPJA. Being part of the AGWPJA is an achievement in itself as they only accept photographers who continually meet their standards of membership. Their philosophy is explained on their site....

"The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association is a group of international wedding photojournalists, who capture unscripted wedding moments as they happen, and excel in the art of post-production image processing.

The Q1 Contest showcases the wedding photojournalism of AG|WPJA members for 2012, and rewards their artistic abilities in enhancing those photographs through post production processes. The AG|WPJA wishes to extend our congratulations to all our members who had award-winning entries in this contest ."

There are thousands of entries every quarter into these competitions from outstanding wedding photojournalists all over the world. Of the winners this time from around the world, only 3 were from the UK! It is a real honour to have a third award winning image and especially exciting to placed second. The image was in the ceremony category and was shot at Steve and Shelly's wedding in April....

The judges comment was..."Very dramatic. Great mood and use of colour."
