  • There were very, very many pictures that used reflections as compositional elements and to my eye this one was the best. I like the look of anticipation on the man's (groom's) face and the coy way in which the bride is looking down before she opens the door. Wonderful composition.

The WPJA contest judges presented Bartosz Jastal, a Poland 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.
