AG|WPJA The Artistic Guild of the WPJA

For the Bride and Groom


Artistic Wedding Photojournalism

The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association is a distinct division within the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). The AG|WPJA focuses strictly on the artistic and "fine art" aspects of wedding photojournalism.

Over the years, the WPJA has embraced unbridled artistic expression in wedding photojournalism. This has transpired since early 2002 through contest categories, such as Digital Manipulation and Enhanced Images, designed especially for such photographs. The Artistic Guild comes as a response to an expressed need from members, judges, as well as brides and grooms--the desire for the WPJA to create a new platform specifically for Artistic Wedding Photojournalism.

AG|WPJA members are international wedding photojournalists, who excel both in creating outstanding images through a documentary approach, and in the art of post-production processing of wedding photographs. In a nutshell, AG|WPJA photographers take great candid pictures, enhance them using the technology available, and deliver museum-quality images from your wedding day.
