Judges

Juliana Wiklund | Stockholm Wedding Photographer Juliana Wiklund, Stockholm, Sweden
Juliana Wiklund is an award winning photographer that specializes in photographing international weddings around the globe. Juliana’s interest for getting to experience and learn with different cultures was the beginning of a life as a photographer. From selling pictures to surfers at the beach while attending Graphic Design/Photography University to being an international traveling photographer, it’s been more than 15 years on the road. During all these years, she has had a chance of traveling almost everywhere and developing her interest for documenting people´s everyday life as well as moments that make life worth living. Besides shooting weddings, she also photographs for commercial picture agencies such as Getty Images and many other editorial articles in magazines and books. Children Photography is also a big part of her life and as she is also a mother-of-three. Children interaction with the bridal party is often a recurring subject on her wedding pictures. From Stockholm to the world, being able to communicate in Portuguese, English, Swedish, Spanish and Italian, she never tires of awe with the power of love that unites different cultures everywhere.
Ricardo Serpa, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Wedding Photographer Ricardo Serpa, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
Ricardo Serpa is a photojournalist with extensive experience covering news around the world. His wedding images tell a story in a unique fashion, it’s art meeting emotion and real life. Having lived in Brazil, Europe and the US, Ricardo loves to travel and document different cultures. His photographic career began in the late 80′s, when he joined the staff of photographers at the “Jornal do Brasil”, the oldest and most traditional of all Brazilian daily newspapers. There Ricardo learned the tools of the trade and developed his passion for telling visual stories in a meaningful way. He moved to the US in 2000 and started his own studio in 2005, applying his photojournalistic skills to document weddings and special events like Bar and Bat Mitzvahs in Florida and abroad.
Yvonne Zemke, Düsseldorf, Germany Wedding Photographer Yvonne Zemke, Düsseldorf, Germany
Born 1967, Yvonne Zemke lived many years in Austria and Berlin. After working in different professions she was fascinated about the renaissance of photography and the new possibilities in the digital era. Her work is influenced by a mixture of new school American wedding photography, with its vibrancy and tendency to break all traditional rules – and the classic European masters that inspire her most. Yvonne Zemke has a passion for the vitality of a wedding day – a cornucopia of emotions just waiting to be transformed into a story. “Reportage and Portraits, both have their place. I cannot imagine the one without the other. The reportage tells the story of the day, and captures the little moments that could, with time, be so easily forgotten – whereas the portraits are the cherry on the cake – they reflect the bridal couple as they perceive themselves. The most important thing I ever learned has little to do with technology or photographic rules: creating an atmosphere with pictures.”
Mark Romine, Normal, Illinois Wedding Photography Mark Romine, Normal, Illinois
Mark has been shooting professionally for nearly three decades. He started his career in NYC doing commercial assignments. In 1987 he returned with his wife to Central IL and opened his own commercial photography business, specializing in photography for ad agencies and corporate clients. He shot his first wedding in 1999 and has been hooked ever since.
