Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

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.

  • When the bride is light and the groom isn't and you can use that graphic and light to define each, it just a matter of seeing it. Shooting this light, and composing it perfectly as a vertical, one of the few in this competition, it is not only a good moment it is a very symbolic image. Great job. Loved the photograph and it inspired me.
