On May 11, 2023 Junebug Weddings revealed the top 50 engagement photos from the past year in its annual Best of the Best Engagement Photo Collection.
Since 2008, Junebug Weddings has been hosting annual photography contests to curate image collections that best represent the year’s achievements in artistry, technical skill, and emotional impact.
This year’s celebratory contest brought in approximately 7,000 image submissions from photographers around the globe eager to share and celebrate the love stories they captured during the past year. Wedding photographers Oli Sansom, Joy Zamora, and Laurken Kendall assisted the Junebug Weddings team in judging the contest, building a collection of 50 images that showcase diversity through photography style, sexuality, race and geography.
Winning a Junebug Weddings photography contest is one of the highest honors a wedding photographer can receive. It can jumpstart a photographer’s career, build credibility in the industry, and connect winners to new and exciting opportunities. Past photo collections have been featured in BuzzFeed, DailyMail, Huffington Post, MSN, Cosmopolitan, and more.
Wedding photographer Gabe McClintock had this to say about Junebug’s photo contests: “I have seen a lot of changes and trends in my 18 years of shooting weddings, but the one constant that remains in this industry is its ability to reach new levels of inspiration and beauty every single year. For me, Junebug Weddings “Best of the Best” image contests push those levels higher and higher each time.”
The next contest that Junebug Weddings will host is its annual Best of the Best Wedding Photography contest, which opens on October 25th.
