Q: How can couples find reviews of Atlanta wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements.

Q: How can couples find top-ranked Atlanta wedding photographers?

Our contests judge photographers based on their creativity, style, composure, and ability to capture the heart of any couple's story on their wedding day.
