  2. Lots of excellent and sorry perhaps better left out of this list:

    Melissa and Chad Cosper
    Benzio
    P3 Atlanta
    Wow! Beth Hopstetter

    1. The best in pageant photographers were determined by 1,000s of voters from The Pageant Planet. I agree with many of your list but the didn’t get enough votes to pierce the Top 10

    2. Glad to see Ben made someone’s list!

  3. Marshall Meadows is an absolute favorite of Mid-West Miss America and MAOT girls. His work is stunning.

  4. It’s rigged!!!! Miss Jamaica and I were both robbed!!!!
    LOL

  5. What an honor, thanks to whoever nominated me and voted for me. I didn’t even know this contest happened, I just signed on facebook today and was tagged in this link, what a great surprise!! I love my clients <3

  6. I think Clay Spann should’ve made this list.

    1. I encourage you to vote for her next year. I’m sure that she is wonderful!

      1. Clay Spann is a guy and a major heavy hitter in pageant photography. I’m wondering how people so involved with pageantry can not know of him, he perhaps would have made this list. I know you mentioned these lists where voted on but they all are missing most the best QUALITY vendors, I know in many cases it is a matter of opinion but it’s looking very weird here and it’s , well, generally misinformation, people have to spend their pageant dollar wisely and might be upset at the given advice. Look at the images posted here there are only a few that would win at a pageant.

  7. Well I will tell you one thing. Some of these are good but most pageant contestants will hold onto who they really use because they don’t want competition to know. This would be a much different list if you put all the pics in a competition either photography or pageant and let them compete them. I don’t know how to do this fairly but perhaps jury actual photo quality next time?
