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 Q4 Photography Contest Judges


  • It’s beautiful light. It’s also beautifully composed, capturing a lovely moment. It’s easy to spot the elements that elevate this image from being more than another photo of a toast. The window framing the scene also helps emphasize the moment with some delicious voyeuristic flair.
  • Nice use of framing to emphasize the moment. The photographer went the extra mile to find a fresh take on a typical scene.
