AWARD-WINNING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
If you are looking for an Award Winning Wedding Photographer with passion, energy and style for getting the images and film for your wedding whether you are having a London Wedding or a Destination Wedding you came to the right place. We have photographed and filmed over 300 weddings between us across 15 different countries from New York to Hong Kong with many others in the middle. Each one has been completely different and has completely different cultures and traditions.
We have also managed to pick some pretty amazing awards along the way. We are incredibly proud, honoured and extremely humbled of each award and also being named as a Top UK Wedding Photographer.
Having said how proud of each and every award, they actually mean NOTHING to us! There I said it..... Being called a Top Wedding Photographer is great but........ It’s far more important to us that our couples get the amazing and awesome wedding images and films they expected from us and booked us for than to win awards. We never turn up to a wedding looking for awards, expecting to take award winning images or film or hunt for guest that might gift us those moments that awards love. Mainly because that is not our primary role. Our primary role as wedding professionals is to capture beautiful images and film for our couples in an authentic way. Awards come as a byproduct having our couples at the centre of everything we do on the wedding day and capturing their story!
BEST UK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Getting genuine, honest, awesome feedback from the couples after seeing their images or watching their film is the one award that makes our hearts miss a beat each, every time, period! No award has ever come close to that feeling and no award could ever make up for a couple not being 100% completely satisfied - long may this continue!!!
So having said that, you might be asking why are wedding photography awards important? It's fair to say not all wedding photography awards are created equal.... Some are much more prestigious than others.
All our awards are global and come from prestigious blogs, companies or associations with truly intentionally talented and recognised judging panels. Meaning, we aren't competing with local photographers but the best of the best wedding photographers and wedding videographers across the World! There are some pretty exceptional photographers out there and we want to compete with the best to push us to be the best photographers and film makers we can be.
With these awards, there isn't any mass email campaign asking for votes and it isn't a popularity contest. They are solely based on the quality of the images and film whether, moment, composition, light or a factor of all three of these elements.
JUNEBUG - BEST OF THE BEST
We don’t even know where to start with this one.... Or what to say..... except we are completely blown away and expectionally happy to say that we have been selected by Junebug a one of the Best of the Best Destination wedding photographers. Junebug Best of the Best has been on our career bucket want list for some time to to finally pick up this award is very special. The Junebug brand is one of the largest wedding blogs in the World and the competition is a huge competition which receives over 9k entries. Having this photo selected as one of only 40 images is a massive achievement for us and we could not be more proud! We are super grateful to Junebug and the jury of amazing wedding photographers for picking this image of Mary and Robert.
It's been said many times before that Fearless Awards are to wedding photography, what the Oscars are to Hollywood.... Need we say anymore.... A bi-monthly competition from amazing wedding photographers from over 100 countries compete for one of the most highly-regarded and coveted awards in the wedding industry. Each contest attracts over 20,000 images, of which less than 2% are selected as “Fearless Awards” by an amazing collection of World renowned panel of internationally respected photographers. We are super super proud to say we have picked up 3 Fearless Awards over the past 3 years and 6 honourable mentions.
THIS IS REPORTAGE
This is Reportage is widely respected as one of the best documentary wedding photographer awards in the industry by none! An international competition celebrating the art and joy of documentary wedding photography. This is Reportage rewards single images and outstanding collections of images that tell the story of a wedding day 'stories'. We are so proud to be in the top 20 wedding photographers in 2018 and 2019 winning over 6 individual image and 6 story awards. We were also invited to judge the competition which is a huge honour. Ash was also the first person to be interviewed live on Facebook by the founder of This Is Reportage Alan Law.
The only wedding photography awards Not Judged By Wedding Photographers!!! The biggest aspect of WPJA is that the judging panel is made up entirely from photo jurnalists and not wedding photographers. This means they are looking at these images with fresh, unbiased eyes. As well as the normal aspects of photography light, moment and composition, the judges will be looking for a story-telling narrative in each and every image. We are hugely proud to say we were featured by WPJA in the top 10 wedding artists of the year from their Artistic Guild section for 2019.
