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.


  • Many elements made this a winning image. Strong foreground, background with two equally entertaining moments, the blissfully consumed bride and friend supported by a groom getting dance instruction. Well composed, truly photojournalism.
