What a year 2019 was for us. Award-Winning Wedding Photography isn’t something we set out to do but we managed to pick up some pretty amazing awards for photography and film along the way making us a UK Top Wedding Photographer and UK Top Wedding Videographer! We captured love stories in 8 different countries from The United States to Hong Kong and many in the middle really setting a foundation of a destination wedding to build on in 2020.
2019 was an award-winning year for us winning and being nominated for some pretty prestigious awards and honours. Being named as Wedding Photographer of the Year by NINEDOTS was one of the highlights after winning 15 awards across the year. Being shortlisted for Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography was another pretty amazing experience and one we hope to go one better on next time! Being named in the Top 15 Wedding Photographers in the World by This Is Reportage . is always a massive achievement for us because TIR is all about unstaged or directed photography which we love. Mick was named Top 3 Wedding Videographers from Way Up North. We were also named as Destination Wedding Photographer of the Year from Junebug, a very prestigious wedding blog awarding only the best images from photographers from around the World. Finally, we were both Regional Finalist for The Wedding Industry Awards and both were highly commended!
We also started speaking at conferences and educating other Wedding Photographers. We started the year off with speaking at Elevate Conference and then popped over to Holland to speak at the Masters Seminars and finally at the legendary NINEDOTS Gathering in London.
But awards are not as important to us as you might think, being a UK Top Wedding Photographer and UK Top Wedding Videographer is great and all, and we LOVE being recognised for our work but essentially we are all about making our clients happy but to be recognised by other professionals in our industry is always very gratifying.
Being a UK Top Wedding Photographer is great but it means nothing without the love and support of our couples. These guys are our only priority…. These are the people who matter! These are the people that trust us into their inner circle on the most important days of their lives. For that, we continue to be incredibly grateful and immensely thankful to each of every couple.
It’s always easy to ‘thank’ couples for booking or ‘having you along’ but we can honestly say we feel a real connection with each and every couple and are humbled to be able to call them our friends. So we are going to say those two small words, but for our couples, they know they mean much much more – thank you!
