2016 Q2 Photography Contest Judges


  • This image is oddly a juxtaposition of sorts. The usual regalia is in place, the standard format rolls onward, but the brides coy, perhaps even coquettish glance at the groom is set apart form the rest - a playful and enjoyable respite from the weight of both environ and ceremony.

The WPJA contest judges presented Alessandra Diamanti, a Cremona, Italy 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.
