The WPJA contest judges presented Kristian Leven, 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.

  • This was a clean, easy read and good choice of lensing.
  • Symmetry plays a role here, of course, but the photo “works” regardless. That extra set of hands, the black jacket that melds into shadows and how nothing more, literally no head, no body attached to those mystery hands, creates a delightfully humorous image. But, it left me wondering if the sprucing up of the groom was done twice as fast.
