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 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 find the best wedding photographers in the UK to place on their shortlist.
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 nit what my typical client wants. They want 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.
