Top 30 Photographers of the Year 2018

Very excited to announce the Top 30 This is Reportage photographers in the world for 2018! The photographers below have exemplified the true art and skill of documentary wedding photography; capturing moment after moment to an incredible, world-class standard.

To win one Reportage or Story Award is a remarkable achievement – with our panel of judges (who change for each round) typically choosing just the top few percent from our thousands of submissions – but to receive multiple Awards, as these photographers have, is simply incredible.

A special mention to our overall Photographer of the Year, Liam Shaw of York Place Studios (whose image is above), who won a staggering 9 Awards in 2018.
