Wedding photographer Megan Gielow, was awarded 4th place for photo 1267111 in the First Dance category for the WPJA's 2013 Q3 Contest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Megan Gielow, a North Carolina, 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.


  • Sometimes just the overwhelming emotion needs to be the focus and in this frame, focusing tightly on it really tells the story of their first dance and love.
