We have the pleasure of hosting Rangefinder's 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography competition every year. Photographers who've been in business full time for 5 years or less are nominated by us and other industry tastemakers, and a final 30 photographers are designated, their work to appear in the November 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography Issue. The Rising Stars are chosen for their exceeding talent, as well as their spark for directing the industry to new, exciting heights. See our list of 2015 Rising Stars, and the accompanying online gallery of their work.
