The 100 Best Wedding Photographers in the World: 2018

The School of Wedding Photography is delighted to bring you the 2018 list of the 100 Best Wedding Photographers in the World

This list is compiled by recommendations from well known photographers and then I spend a lot of time looking for less known but excellent photographers around the world. From 2018 I will be accepting submissions directly from photographers, see right. There is no guarantee of inclusion but please do enter, I'm always looking for hidden gems.

Pictures were kindly supplied by the photographers. Obviously there are hundreds more excellent photographers than are just on this list. It could easily have been a 1000 Best. 

And so, The School of Wedding Photography is happy to present, in alphabetical order...
