2015 Q4 Photography Contest Judges

  • This enjoyable image finds the wedding couple showered with champagne as the droplets of bubbly create a flowing arc to both frame the moment and serve as a leading line into the image. I particularly liked the composition here. It would have been an easy image to miss if photographed with a longer lens or cropping out the space above them in the viewfinder.
  • A beautifully captured scene. Great composition and use of flare adds interest.

The WPJA contest judges presented Wellington Fugisse, a Brazil 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.
