FdB Awards Try To Find The Most Outstanding Images Of Real Love, Here’s The Winning Photographs (25 Pics)
We believe love is the most important feeling for human beings. Wedding photographers all over the world try to describe this feeling in joyful and original ways. Every couple is different, every couple is unique and so should be their wedding photos, right?
Every three months we run a contest to find the most outstanding images of love, couples and weddings. With the help of three talented professionals: Arno de Brujin (Holland), Blair DeLaubenfels (USA) and Xiang Wi (China), the best images have been selected from more than 1300.
Those images show that there is always space for creativity, fun, color and happiness in wedding photography. The authors are real artists crafting their best photos and giving to the couples timeless memories of their great day. Which one do you like best?
Fotografos de Boda (FdB) was first founded in 2015 with the idea of empowering and promoting wedding photography as a form of expression. Photographer and a director of the FdB, Martino Buzzi, shared that the organization supports photographers who are not afraid of doing new things and experimenting in the field.
"We are working hard to be a connection between couples who are looking for special photos and the photographers who offer a unique work. In the near future, we see ourselves as a well-known and respected platform in the business helping hundreds of couples finding the perfect photographer for their special wedding."

Each time, the photos are examined individually by each of the three judges. They are looking for emotional impact, good or excellent use of light and composition, originality, a good or wonderful location or expression.
In this competition, we received more than 1300 individual pictures and 640 photographs in the reportage category, so almost 2000. There are around 100 photographers who participate throughout the year and collect awards in different contests.
"My Love Is Unstoppable" By Estelle Carlier
In comparison to five years ago, now there is a richer variety of styles. A much richer offer of different views. Photographers are getting more and more specific and personalized. Apart from “vintage”, “classic” and “modern” styles, now we can find experimental photographers breaking the traditional barriers. Showing unseen moments and characters. For example, we can now see many photographers doing special sessions before or after the wedding.
"Natural Love" By Pedro Álvarez
Apart from wonderful fashion style pictures, perfectly lightened and posed, nowadays there is a more direct and authentic style which is based on a photojournalistic idea. This kind of photography is very difficult because there is no control over what is going to happen and the photographer must be ready.
We are also trying to give importance to the full stories and not just single images. That's why we came up with the category "Wedding story". In this section, we display 20 collections of photographs taken on a single wedding day. You can see the photos here.
