Going to a wedding is a magical experience and kudos to the wedding photographer who captures those precious memories and immortalizes them in a Facebook photo album the next day.
The International Society Of Professional Wedding Photographers holds quarterly contests among their talented wedding photographers, selecting only the best wedding photos from a huge pool of ISPWP members. There are 20 categories that spotlight various aspects of wedding photography, whether it's dynamic movement, lighting and composition or pure and raw emotion.
"You have to get it right the first time, every time. You have to be a master of the craft and know your gear so well that you can make adjustments on the fly, without thinking or hesitating. And you have to do it for 8, 10, or 12 hours in close quarters with clients who have put their trust in you to get it right," ISWP wrote on their website.
Below are 25 stunning wedding photos taken from across the globe from 2013 and 2014.
