Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2024 are Here!

Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography is an exclusive list of up-and-coming wedding photographers from around the globe.

Our final 30 Rising Stars are selected in a process that involves three rounds. Initial nominations are made by established industry professionals and wedding photographers. Nominees must have been shooting weddings on a full-time basis for five years or less to be eligible.

If picked from among the nominees, they are requested to fill out a questionnaire and submit 30 photos from their portfolio. Those who show exceptional promise for advancing and evolving the aesthetics of wedding photography are selected as top 50 finalists with the final 30 announced at WPPI.

Our 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography excelled in all areas judges evaluate, including consistent style, narrative strength, and post-processing prowess.

Lead Judge and Content Director for Rangefinder, Arlene Evans says, “These photographers represent the next exciting generation of storytellers bringing fresh and unique style to wedding photography. Their stories evoke emotion that resonates with the viewer. They also show technical proficiency and push the boundaries with their perspectives and post-processing skills.”

We are very pleased to introduce them in our Winners Gallery. Learn More »
