Wedding Photojournalist Association Awards

Wedding Photojournalist Association

I’m delighted to have received many Wedding Photojournalist Association awards. Wedding Photojournalist Association is a directory of documentary, reportage-style photographers.
The top wedding photographers worldwide submit their images to WPJA’s photography competitions.
They know that some of the news industry’s most notable photojournalists and picture editors will view their photos. They appreciate that winning these competitions is a true accomplishment.

Winning images included:

Nicola & Dan in Six Senses Koh Yao Noi Hideaway Thailand
Kyle & Taylor Inle Lake Elopement in Myanmar
Kim & Scott’s Wedding at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay in Vietnam


A group of former newspaper photojournalists founded WPJA in 2002 for wedding photographers. The Wedding Photojournalist Association has become the most respected organization in wedding photography.
The WPJA values photojournalism, so only working photojournalists judge member competitions. They use the same judgment and expertise they would use to select the best images for their news stories.
As a result, WPJA members produce wedding photographs that capture the authentic events and emotions of the day. Their images are unique and full of humanity, setting them apart from the staged wedding photos that populate social media. WPJA members take pride in producing distinctive and genuine work without fabricating moments.
