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.


  • I loved the body language and the soft light in this photo. I thought it was well composed and the photographer edited a nice moment.
  • Here’s an image that comes straight off the page of a travel brochure. It’s so perfect, so ideal, it makes all of us wish we were there taking this photo. It’s compositionally “spot on” and offers viewers a carefree journey into the kind of place we all long to be - together in love.
