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.

  • It’s not the first or last confetti picture ever taken, but there is so much confetti, yet surprisingly you still are able to see the couple’s embrace, his hand upon her waist, her holding up her dress, the angles of their bodies. Though you can’t see their faces clearly, the emotion oozes from this image. Perfect timing.
  • Another confetti abstraction photo with great light and energy. Did this couple get married at a political convention? Too funny.
