  • Although there is so much going on in this image, I am intrigued by the scene. The overhead position helps the viewer make sense of the busy composition. The bride’s gesture is a wonderful storytelling element.

The WPJA contest judges presented Artem Pitkevich, a Russia 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.
