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.


  • If you’re going to bring an elephant to a wedding, then you better expect your head to get wrapped up by it’s trunk. Cause that’s exactly what happened. And it was funny. And the bride thought it was funny. And the photographer nailed it.
  • Elephants were big this year (no pun intended).
