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.

2014 Q4 Photography Contest Judges


  • Busy room as everyone is fussing over the bride and you get the hectic-ness of that moment in the foreground. The focal point being the bride through the mirror in the background, really adding to the layers of the image.
  • Great use of layering! Every face, every movement, the angle of the camera and the mirror add to the complexity of this photo.
