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.


  • The contrast and juxtaposition of the two faces is marvelous. This was a standout. This is a photo you can spend lots of time with wondering about life and feelings. If one were assembling a new family of man exhibition, this should be included.
  • The contrasts in the faces really told a story here. Like looking back in time.
