Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Massachusetts 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. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Massachusetts wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Massachusetts wedding day?
A: While wedding photojournalists strive to capture candid moments on the wedding day, our photographers also are skilled artists who can compose powerful portraits. If you have a specific vision of what types of images you want from your wedding day, look at the top-ranked Massachusetts wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
Q: How can couples find top-ranked Massachusetts wedding photographers?
A: The WPJA created the original wedding photographer ranking systems. Our innovative system is based on contest winning points, meaning that the Massachusetts photographers you see at the top of your search results page have recently won the most — and the most recent — contest awards. 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.

Mike and I finally got through all the pictures last night, and I can tell you that we had such a good time going over all of the happy moments (we had quite a few big laughs as well!). You did a fantastic job and we really cannot thank you enough. We were truly thrilled with the results and couldn't have asked for better people with whom to share our day.
