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.

  • I found myself truly laughing out loud at this amusing moment at a wedding. Of course the big moment is happening on stage behind these two attendees, who must be taking photographs of other attendees in the audience. I'm glad the photographer was also looking the other direction because the juxtaposition of these people who seem to be turning their back upon this dramatic scene in the background is really quite humorous and enjoyable. Nice work.
