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.
- So much money is spent on a wedding dress and for this moment, it caught the details of the dress but in such a way that it also captures her figure, kinda sexy.
- Good combination of documenting the dress and creating an artistic image. The light is terrific and the composition is very powerful.
