The Best Wedding Photographers In The UK

 

These days, everyone is an ‘Award Winning Wedding Photographer’! A whole industry of website directories and awards has sprung up, where as long as you pay the subscription fee, you’ll be featured. But there’s still a handful of sites and awards that do honour the best wedding photographers around, and those are the ones that I enter. Competition is tough – you’re entering images against thousands of wedding photographers from all over the world. So it’s a big deal if you’re fortunate enough to have an image or two good enough to be recognised as being one of the best in that category.

High Quality Wedding Photography

The organisations that I admire and respect in the industry, are those who’s directories list the highest calibre of photographer. They usually have a selection process, to ensure that only the best photographers are admitted, making the competition very fierce indeed. They can be a superb resource for engaged couples looking to get a better short list and find the best wedding photographers in the UK.

The Best In Documentary Wedding Photography

The images I enter are all documentary wedding photography – it’s what I specialise in, and why my clients book me. Although posed portraits with stunning backgrounds and lighting will often do much better in these awards, that’s not what I typically produce from weddings, and not what my typical client wants. They want superb and honest, truthful representations of their wedding day and their family and friends, not a fashion photoshoot. So it’s contests like the Fearless Awards, and the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) whose awards I value.

Here’s a selection of posts highlighting some of the awards I’ve gained from these organisations recently.
