OK, WE ARE OFFICIALLY ONE OF THE RANGEFINDER “30 RISING STARS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY” FOR 2019. SURREAL!
Today is crazy news day! It was so hard to keep it a secret for the past two months and we are so excited to finally being able to share with you that we have been named as one of the “30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography” from all over the world by New York’s Rangefinder magazine!
Each year, since 2011, Rangefinder, the leading magazine in wedding and portrait photography, issues a list of 30 wedding photographers, in their own words “a group of emerging photographers of the year who’ve exhibited promising talent, artistic prowess, a unique voice and creative direction in wedding photography”. It is only by nomination that one can be considered and to make it to the final list one is judged on a 30-photo portfolio basis among almost another 300 nominees from all over the world.
Being nominated was already a dream come true! So, making it to the final list was beyond our imagination! We had to read the email over and over and over again and still we couldn’t believe it! Words can’t even describe how honoured, humbled and grateful we are!
Rising stars is a list that we have followed and turned to for inspiration countless times and also has hosted most of the photographers that we look up to. It was very nice to see a Greek photographer making it to the final list for the first time and hope that many will follow!
A few years back, we made the decision to put all our energy, courage and resources to do something completely different from our educational and professional backgrounds. But after a loooot of hard work, both physically and mentally, a lot of self doubting and questioning, here we are now sharing these news with you. This achievement is a confidence boost that only motivates us to try harder and be bolder.
We want to thank everyone who helped achieve this milestone for us: the Rangefinder magazine, all the couples that trusted us, and all of you that have supported us during the past couple of years. A huge thanks goes to Marcijuš weddings, Tomislav and Lara, you already had our admiration and love, now you also have our deepest gratitude!
Congratulations to the rest 29 super talented photographers, we are so happy to be in the same group with them! Check their incredible work in the “30 Rising Stars” full gallery here.
