De juryleden die wij voor elke ronde selecteren hebben zich al geruime tijd Internationaal bewezen in de bruidsfotografie. Hierdoor weten zij heel goed wat een goede bruidsfoto onderscheidt van een leuke bruidsfoto. Er zal onder andere gelet worden op: impact, emotie, sfeer, bijzonderheid, gebruik van licht, compositie en nabewerking.
Alle inzendingen worden anoniem beoordeeld, dus de naam van de fotograaf is daarbij niet zichtbaar en de juryleden zitten niet bij elkaar om te discussiëren over foto’s.
Indien 2 of 3 juryleden een stem geven voor een bepaalde foto dan krijgt deze foto een award.
Een jurylid ziet niet welke foto er een stem heeft gekregen van een ander jurylid
Een jurylid mag maximaal een stem geven aan 10% van de inzendingen.
Er is geen minimum voor het aantal stemmen per jurylid

I'd say I take pictures since I was a kid, buy nowadays everybody does, so this is not very meaningful.
Before being a photographer, I had a career in visual design and motion graphics, something that was collaterally bound to photography: light, colors, geometry, point of view and taste. Maybe this helped me discovering the camera as an instrument to produce something visually pleasant.
In 2018 it's ten years I'm a professional photographer.
And I always feel I have lifelong things to learn. Every day, every step I take in this world improves the way I see the world around me and makes my photography grow. And this is done by watching good photography and reading great masters books. If you want to get somewhere, you have to learn from the best. That's what I tried to do till today.
