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.

  • What a fun wedding. It looks like they are headed to the reception. I guess when the car doesn’t work the way you want it to work, you make it work and they did. Nicely composed image shot at the perfect moment.
  • It could have been made anywhere - in Europe that is. It's a simple photo, yet full of life and detail. No fancy angles needed, because the best way to immortalize this scene is to let it be what it is, and make a good exposure.
