Wedding photography has evolved into a significant profession of its own over the years, encompassing a variety of styles and approaches to help document one of the most important days in a couple's life.

Naturally then, like any artistic profession, there is a place where your skills can be recognized and judged by your peers. Fearless Awards is a curated competition which unveils a carefully-chosen collection of top-class wedding pictures every two months (you can also find the best of 2017 here).

"Fearless Photographers was founded in 2010 when I was still a working wedding photographer. I am now retired from wedding photography so I can work full-time on the Fearless Photographers business. I founded Fearless to showcase the work of the best photographers specialized in weddings who made amazingly beautiful images that went beyond typical wedding ceremony photography. I wanted to compile collections of these wedding photos to show the world how unique and breathtaking couple photos could be," the creator of Fearless Photographers told Bored Panda.

These awards recognize only the very best wedding photos, only 2 out of every 100 submissions are chosen, so prepare to be truly inspired! "Right now, about 3,100 wedding photographers are listed on the site. Our "Fearless" community is very active in efforts to educate, inspire, and help each other."

Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the most impressive, artistic and cute pictures of the year so far, images that perfectly capture the drama, emotion and pure joy of getting hitched. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and vote for your favorites too!

Am just tearful at the quality of emotion in this one image. I dont understand someone who doesnt get it .This is the moment you are giving your precious daughter away to another man. This is the most beautiful you will ever see her and it is the last day she will be your child and under your protection.

For me.. those tears are product of that overwhelming feeling of love. When you love someone SO MUCH that it just fills you and you can't believe that this person, this beautiful, amazing person loves you back, you feel amazed by thinking how happy you are because s/he exists and how s/he can make you feel this way, and experience this profound and pure LOVE.

Why is a carpet and shoes a special photo? Should I notice anything else?

It's because there's a toddler acting like a toddler at a fancy occasion who's decided to throw a tantrum on a carpet that matches her dress.

Toddler done. laying on floor. probably after a meltdown. Red floor and dress coordinating nicely... whoever doesn't "get it", does not currently have young kids I'm guessing.

Its the "haldi" ceremony in Indian weddings. "Haldi" or turmeric powder is applied by the friends and family on bride before the wedding day. It helps improve skin complexion during the actual wedding.
