I am delighted to share that Fearless Photographers has listed me as one of the “Top 50 Wedding Photographers Worldwide for 2016”!!!! I share this honor with fellow photographers from Indonesia, France, Romania, England, China, Italy and Brazil to mention a few :).
It is humbling to be surrounded by such amazing photographers, literally in this case, haha– see me in the middle?
Awards are given by a rotating panel of judges from all over the world. They look for innovative photographs that creatively tell a story. They want to be stunned, amazed or feel like your images are redefining wedding photography.
Fearless Photographer rankings are based on the number of international photography awards given by several panels of judges throughout the course of the year. Winning photographs are chosen for showing creative imagery, bold storytelling and consistent vision. Narrowing the top wedding photographers across the globe takes time and there are several steps in the year-long process. In the interest of keeping the judging as impartial as possible, images are anonymous, the panel of curators changes for each collection, and there are rules/limits (especially on photo-shopping etc).
In 2016, there were 689 photographs that earned Fearless Awards worldwide. I received 4 of those awards, which placed me of the “Top 50 Photographers of 2016 list.” If I would have earned one more award this year, I would have made the “Top 10”, that can be a goal for next year, haha! Here are my award-winning images for 2016. I am surprised by how many are black and white!
This one requires a closer look ;)…
This is my third year being listed in the top 100 wedding photographers internationally by Fearless Photographers, as I was on the top 100 list in 2014 (top 50), 2015 (top 100) and 2016 (top 50). This is also my second year on the “Top 100 Photographers of All Time” list due to my 13 international award winning images over the past three years. Here are my 9 other award winning images from previous years:
