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.

2013 Q1 Contest Judges


  • Many of the images entered into the 'ring' section just focused on the rings and did not tell a story. This image manages to do that. The light reflecting off the ring surface gives the feeling that they are glowing. There is a real sense of spirituality and connection.
  • Perfect lighting, with contrast of the rings on the hands of this couple during their wedding.
