Meet The Judges

David & Luke Edmonson

Luke and David Edmonson began their careers in commercial photography, having photographed the covers of CD’s for some of the biggest names in music as well as national magazine covers and best selling books. Commercial work often took them to separate areas of the world though, which made it difficult for Luke and his father David to spend time together. In 2003 they founded Edmonson Weddings and haven’t looked back since.

It wasn’t long before the international photographic community began celebrating this talented twosome and awarding them for their unique contributions to the art. Luke and David were honored with the coveted International Photographer of the Year award for Loan images entered in the Imaging USA international print competition.

The Edmonson’s hold two grand awards from the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) organization in Commercial and Wedding Photography categories. Between the two, Edmonson Weddings have received a combined total of over 300 Accolades of Excellence earning them the Accolade of Exceptional Photographic Achievement (AEPA), in addition to multiple Fuji Masterpiece & Kodak Gallery Awards.

One of their passions is educating the next generation of photographers by frequently speaking at conventions and workshops. Both Luke & David serve as speakers and print judges for the WPPI International Print Competition held at their annual convention.

Their work has been featured in notable industry publications such as Rangefinder, Photo District News, Shutterbug and various regional publications, as well as a number of inspiring bridal magazines including Modern Bride, The Knot and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style.
