Weddings! We hope for them to be a once-in-a-lifetime event, and business tend to price them as such (it's a racket!). Wedding photographers, however, might just be worth it, as they are the ones tasked with immortalizing your wedding in pictures - which will remain for posterity a lot longer than your smudgy memories.

2017 International Wedding Photographer of the Year (IWPOTY) is the first such contest held for wedding photographers and the hope is that the even will "become the the new benchmark for Wedding Photography competitions." With the grand prize of $2500 and photography stuff that probably costs as much, it's a real treat. Here are some of the winners!
