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 photo is an interesting juxtaposition of, well, stuff. That simplicity is what makes the photo so intriguing. One could argue that both pieces - the dress and the painting, are both art. But I think it is far more gracious to simply step back, think a little bit, and then decide to simply enjoy the beauty of an image that is essentially a simple juxtaposition that works splendidly.
