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 Nicole Wickens, was awarded 19th place for photo 55136 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2007 Q1.

The WPJA contest judges presented Nicole Wickens, a Montana, 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

  • I always tell my students to go right for what is catching your eye and the photographer did this here. This great reception detail allowed a unique and lyrical image from the wedding. Perfect- technically as well. I really liked this image.
