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.


  • Another nice toast moment. Great faces.
  • I love how everyone is engaged in this timeless moment even though they appear to be looking in different directions. The rich color makes it even more beautiful.
  • A really simple and spontanous picture taken with a strong photojournalistic style.
