Judges

  • One of my favorite photos from the contest. Very Helmut Newton. Stood out immediately.
  • I love the body language in this photo. And the glance of the bride is a really terrific candid moment, it was obvious that the photographer had developed a good rapport with the subjects.

The WPJA contest judges presented Steve Matteo, a Illinois, 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.
