The international jurors we select for each round have already proven themselves for quite some time. This makes them very capable of distinguishing a good wedding photo from a nice wedding photo. Aspects they pay attention to include: impact, emotion, atmosphere, creativity, use of light, composition and post-processing.
All entries are assessed anonymously, which means that the photographer’s name is not visible, and the jurors are not together to discuss photos.
When 2 or 3 jurors vote for a particular photo, this photo is presented with an award.
A juror cannot see which photo has received a vote from another juror.
A juror can vote for up to 10% of the entries.
There is no minimum with respect to the number of votes per juror
I’m a native New Yorker who grew up in Greenwich Village during the late 70’s and early 80’s. My first camera was an old 35mm Nikkormat and I was fascinated with B&W street photography (mostly about the dangerous NYC subways) at an early age. My mother was an artist who raised two kids on her own. I spent 14 years on Wall Street and I never felt more alive since leaving and finding photography as my true calling. I love different genres of photography from Steve McCurry and David Alan Harvey to portrait photographers such as Richard Avedon and Dan Winters.

I’m a British born Destination Wedding Photographer, currently based out of Los Angeles California where I live with my wife Clare and son Toby. I am always humbled when couples trust me to tell their wedding story. I love what I do because I’m fascinated by the human connections, personalities and behaviors which fuel those stories. Capturing such authentic moments for my clients drives everything I do behind the camera and in my opinion, is what wedding photography should be all about.
