The WPJA contest judges presented Joe Brier, a Massachusetts, 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.

  • The groom is either waiting or stunned by that windswept veil. Perhaps it is both. I enjoyed the directness of this image that doesn’t muss around with laborious intrusions. It presents itself for what it is - a simple swoosh of fun. The composition is clean and neat, by a photographer who makes photography look easy. And, that’s a high compliment on any day.
  • This is a moment that could never happen twice. Nice symbolism here with the wind blowing the veil to the sky as the door swings open, priceless.
