7th place in Bride and Groom

Wedding photographer Aidan Dockery, was awarded 7th place for photo 362621 in the Bride and Groom category for the WPJA's 2010 BRIDES Magazine.

The WPJA contest judges presented Aidan Dockery, a Thailand 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.


  • The expressions, light, and framing of the bride and groom create a lovely candid portrait of the bride and groom as they listen to others during their reception. The groom's face, with the bride's hair framing his eye, create a touching moment.
