The 100 Best Wedding Photographers In The World

The most beautiful, stylish, creative and artistic wedding photographers around the globe have been handpicked for your viewing pleasure. Smile …

Wedding photographer Nicholas Purcell, of Nicolas Purcell Studio in Adelaide, has photographed hundreds of weddings in his career. He is also deeply immersed within the creative world of photography, with his finger on the pulse when it comes to what’s new, what works, and how to capture mood, memory and beauty for the happy couple.

So, Nicholas put together a list of some of the most talented wedding photographers around the world. “This list of the 100 Best Wedding Photographers in the World  honours and recognises artists who devote their creativity to other people’s weddings,” Nicholas explains. “The starting point in compiling this list was reaching out to a handful of wedding photographers I respect and asking them to anonymously nominate others. Then I spent a long, long time pouring over those portfolios and a thousand others. I was looking for talent obviously but also something special, a signature. A sign of individuality. Ideally the work identifies the photographer immediately. Pictures were kindly supplied by the photographers. The Where tells you their studio location (though few don’t travel) and the Why attempts to explain why I think they’re artistically worthy of being on this list. Obviously there are hundreds more excellent photographers than are just on this list. It could easily have been a 1000 Best.”

Here’s ten photographers from Nicholas’ 100 Best Wedding Photographers in the World 2021 list…
