Judges

  • Fun divide between the worlds of the adults and the children. Great moment!
  • It may be a common scene at weddings, but it isn't a common image. It's set apart from the others via the juxtaposition of the devil-may-care scene taking place on the floor with the seriousness of the speaker and the almost solemn uniformity of the head table. But never discount finding the moment within a scene like this. When combined with good execution of photographic skill, the moment always sets an image apart.

The WPJA contest judges presented Marianne Earthy, a London, United Kingdom 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.
