Here comes the prize! World’s best wedding photos of 2014 revealed
These are the stunningly creative photographs voted as some of the WORLD’S best wedding snaps from the last year.
The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) Awards features more than 20 categories.
From the conventional “Bride and Groom Portrait” to the vibrant “All About Light” award – everything is taken into consideration.
In total more than 20,000 images were submitted by the society’s members.
The competition judges convene four times a year picking one winner in each category.
By the end of the year, 80 winners have been selected – with artistic value and emotional impact playing a part in the judges’ decisions.
The society’s members are based all over the world, with group proving assurance for soon-to-be-wed couples that they are hiring a snapper with a good reputation.
Joe Milton, executive director of ISPWP, said: “A great wedding photographer needs to be a great artist and technician to capture the photos on the wedding day.
“But they must also be keenly aware of the importance of the photos being taken.
“These are images that will become part of a family’s history so the devotion to both the craft and the client are both very important.
“We want to highlight the best wedding photos in the world, showcasing the full range of photos wedding photographers are expected to take during the course of a wedding.”
