It's not easy picking the most beautiful wedding photos in the world, especially since every day countless gorgeous weddings take place across the globe. But Junebug Weddings took on the task of finding the world's most striking wedding photos, and by the looks of it, they totally succeeded.
For the past eight years, Junebug Weddings has hosted the Best of the Best Destination Photography Contest, which this year alone brought in 4,500 image submissions by photographers from shoots around the world.
The judges of the contest include the Junebug Wedding team and five world-renowned wedding photographers, Dylan and Joanna Kitchener of the Kitcheners, Danelle Bohane, and Ropate and Gitte Kama of Kama Catch Me. Together the team narrowed down the thousands of submissions to 50 winners, and after seeing some of the submissions, we can only imagine that was no easy task.
"We're excited to be hosting what will be our fourth annual destination photo contest this year! Our judges for this year's contest are a group of wildly talented individuals skilled at capturing the connection between couples in beautiful destinations all around the world, which is what this contest is all about. Every year, our destination collection pushes the limits and inspires thousands and we're honored to continue hosting such a fun contest," said Carrie Schwab, Junebug Weddings general manager and editor-in-chief.
Junebug Weddings hosts other photography contests, including Best of the Best Wedding Photography Contest every winter, and the Engagement Photography Contest in the spring.
