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.

Wedding photographer Jonathan Kirshner, was awarded 4th place for photo 54206 in the Details category for the WPJA's 2007 Q1.

The WPJA contest judges presented Jonathan Kirshner, a Illinois, United States 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.

Judges

  • Really nice composition. This is a groom that has support by his party. Beautiful use of light. Nice moment and composition on the hands on the shoulder of the groom shot. They are perfectly positioned as was the photographer to compose it this way – wish the grooms head had a bit more detail at the top or separated a bit better from the background.
