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.

  • Such joy shows on the faces of the bride (and Iā€™m guessing her father), while the groom looks on. The photographer captured such a perfect moment: the embrace, the smiles. You can hear what they are thinking.
  • You're married. And I'm so happy for you. You look happy so I am too. One can almost hear the whispers of fond sentiments in the form of spoken words written across the image before you. But there's something so much better in a time like this. It's called a camera. And the messages it brings are carried on the wings and winds of time in ways that inspire us through the generations.
