Judges

  • All that work getting ready and, of all the luck, the hair dresser’s creations meet the hair “mess-er”...the wind and its more natural views of beauty. Unfortunately for them, that short wall offered little protection. But, fortunately their battle for beauty was a moment of beauty. The photographer provided an important perspective for the moment through good use of composition. The airiness of the photo provides a sense of the wind swirling in the open space that envelops the ill-fated women in the futile struggle.

The WPJA contest judges presented Scott MacDonald, a California, 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.
