- As she is completely blurred, I'm not sure how the bride would regard this photograph. However, I love the rich texture created by the blurring that serves as background to the champagne toasts
The WPJA contest judges presented Bill Getty, a 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.
