- The joy of photojournalism is to be witness to a moment. Even better, though it could go without saying, is to be the one who preserves that moment with the grace found in well-honed skills. Here, the photographer uses great lighting, lens choice, composition and angle to record an equally graceful moment.
The WPJA contest judges presented Lyndsey Goddard, a London, United Kingdom 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.
