The WPJA contest judges presented Adam Houseman, a Colorado, 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.


  • Away from the obvious ceremony situation is this tender private moment. It's the hand gently touching the groom's face that makes this image. There is a lot of emotion in the body language.
  • Nice subtle, sweet moment.
  • Gentle, powerful. Patience paid off.
