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.


  • This photo has a great feel. The backlight of the setting sun, the casualness of the barefoot bride and the flowers on the rock and the way the photographed framed the scene. Little elements that come together beautifully.
