Junebug Best of the Best Engagement Contest 2017

World’s Best Engagement Photography

I am just in awe and absolutely honoured to be included on the Junebug Weddings Best of the Best list for this year. It is one of the highest accolades a wedding photographer can win – and I am still pinching myself (is this real life?).

Every year, the wonderful team at Junebug Weddings (a big wedding blog based in the USA) judge thousands of submitted images (this year it was 5,000) and from that they choose just 50 images. These images are considered to be the best engagement photography in the world. To be featured alongside some photographers whom I admire so much, people whom I consider the best photographers in the world – is just mind-blowing to me. This is definitely something that I only thought would happen in my wildest dreams. I never ever expected to win the first time I entered the competition!

Thank you so much to the wonderful team at Junebug Weddings!

Here is the full list.
