2014 Q3 Photography Contest Judges

  • If it wasn't enough to be "wrapped up" in one another emotionally, this bride and groom appear to have taken it to another level. But from the photographer's viewpoint, the subject's prior partying provides an additional layer of frivolity to an otherwise beautiful moment of dance. It's as subdued as it is unrestrained - festive - and resonates the mood of the moment in a visually interesting way.

The WPJA contest judges presented Vera Varley, a New York, 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.
