  • No rice in the glass for this groom! The photographer has captured the surprised reaction from the couple. They are laughing and wincing simultaneously. Expressions are important. No more so than in this wonderful photo. The laugh and smirk are unique to this photo and truly show off the personalities of the bride and groom. What is he protecting his drink from? Whatever it was it made for an great photograph.

The WPJA contest judges presented Adam Trzcionka, 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.
