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.
2006 Winter Judges
- The simplicity of the composition and vivid color contributes to the retro feel of this image. Obviously the couple is interested in the retro look, and the photographer has captured that beautifully. A great storytelling image. The photographer has utilized the wide angle effectively, including many of the elements of the day while giving a sense of the character of the event and people.
