Judges

  • The light was great and the position of the photographer was perfect to catch the little moment between bride and groom. Well done.
  • What a fantastic moment with a high-five between bride and groom as they exit the ceremony...past a lone guest who clasps her hands together in silent approval…past the dappled light that scatters across the aisle like the lingering rose petals dropped by a child...on their path from the altar and toward a hopeful life together. This is a moment indeed.

The WPJA contest judges presented Steve Matteo, a Illinois, 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.
