This is the 4th year that we participated in the Shoot & Share contest (2014, 2015, 2017, & 2018). Each year I submitted a handful of photos as a challenge to myself and have been lucky enough to have images post in the top 30% each year.
This year I submitted 6 photos and three of the six ranked – 1 finalist, 1 top 10% and 1 top 30% and I’m thrilled! Each year the contest has grown by leaps and bounds and I’m happy to put my images in amongst some truly gifted photographers. To give you some idea about the growth…. this year the ring shot on the top was entered into thus year’s contest and placed in the top 10% and ranked 634/16,755 submitted images. The ring shot on the bottom is from 2014, placed top 20% where it ranked 126/890. The categories have changed slightly over the years, but I think you can get the idea of growth in the competition!
Curious about the other photos of mine that ranked?
I had a Styled Portrait come in as a finalist (274/11,101) and an Engagement/Couples portrait rank in the top 30% (9,709/37,145)… I think I did alright!
Maybe next year I’ll submit more and do better! Contact me to book your session or wedding today and maybe a photo from you shoot will be entered!
