Judges

  • This is so different. I love the look of this photograph, looking like a painting. It is also a good moment with the couple mid-drink.
  • This picture stuck with me over the days that I looked at all of these pictures. It looks like a painting. The light, the color palette and the decisive moment all come together.

The WPJA contest judges presented Liliya Gorlanova, a Russia 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.
