I am very happy that for the second time in my photographic career I have achieved something amazing – the title of the best wedding photographer in the world. In 2015, I succeeded at the wedding photography organization WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) based in the USA, and this year also at Inspiration Photographers organization based in Brazil, where I won 1st place Overall (for wedding photos & stories) and became best Inspiration Wedding Photographer of 2020.
Inspiration Photographers – the organization of wedding, family and portrait photographers with members from 48 countries, organizes 5 competitions each year (this year they added another one due to COVID-19) for individual photos and 4 competitions for a series of photographs from one wedding – wedding stories (20 photos from the same wedding). In the overall standings, I took 1st place with 23 awards for individual photos and 8 awards for the wedding stories. Along with the winning photographs, I got also 9 honorable mentions. Given the very different and difficult year of 2020 due to the global pandemic, this is a great cue for further work.
On this occasion, I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all my couples who showed me confidence, that I was a part of their wedding day, photographed them and make them an authentic wedding story!!! Without you, I would never have succeeded!!! Thank you!!!
I would also like to thank all the jurors of the competitions, who have to choose the winning ones from the huge quantities of submitted photos. I have also been a judge many times and I know how demanding this work is. And of course thanks to Inspiration Photographers for a very interesting competition. Their competitions are special because the photos you send must not yet be awarded in any competitions of other organizations. This of course makes the whole thing even harder and the awarded photos more original.
