- This one stood out because it’s just so different, a vintage photo and the angle to the light helps you to see exactly what’s being seen by the subject of the picture.
The WPJA contest judges presented Mary Schroeder, a Oregon, 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.
