The WPJA contest judges presented Pedro Cabrera, a Madrid, Spain 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.

2015 Q2 Photography Contest Judges


  • Sometimes bad things happen. The bridesmaid saves the day with a great photograph to prove it.
  • Don't you just hate those gnarly bushes that demand a response if we venture too close. Scratched legs, poked fingers, snagged clothes and veils trapped. The woman at right runs to the rescue and prevents a disastorous tug of bride versus bush. This is an enjoyable image where happenstance is averted in a brief but explosive moment of grit and tug.
