One of the Top 100 Fearless Photographers for 2018

We are honored to be one of the top 100 Fearless Photographers of 2018. Earning Fearless Awards is extremely difficult. Normally only 1-2% of submitted photos are selected as Fearless awards for each contest.  Together we earned 6 Fearless award in 2018. Jos ranked #37 (#6 for USA) and #44 overall in the world (#8 for USA). We are excited as a “team” since we consider both of us in every shot we take. We are constantly inspired by the Fearless community and always seeking to learn and grow in new ways. Huge thank you to Huy Nguyen, Fearless Photographers founder, for taking the entire industry to a new level every year.

Jos and Tree Marie Woodsmith, of Portland, Oregon-based Jos Studios, ensure a trusting relationship by meeting with the couple—in person or via Skype—multiple times prior to the wedding. “We listen, and we ask a lot of questions,” says Tree, “and let our couples know that the better we know them, the more we can identify what to look for when shooting the wedding. They inherently trust us because they know we care.”
