  • Such a wonderful tender moment. It is as if the kiss lingered as a way of keeping the bride from leaving. Almost perfect B&W tonality and simple yet effective composition allows the viewer to lock onto the mother's expression.

The WPJA contest judges presented Yan Kun, a Hubei, China 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.
