WE ARE AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHERS
and we’re so proud of it!
Listen, we understand that shelves of trophies or clusters of medals probably won’t be top of your list of criteria when you’re looking for the right wedding photographers for you. And we agree with you – the most important thing is that you click with your photographers, that you feel comfortable with them and (of COURSE) that you like their photography style.
However, awards in the world of photography are worth taking note of, too. Essentially because they’re really darn hard to win! So, if you do see proof of recognition in national and, yes, international, awards, you can rest assured that these are serious marks of quality.
We’re super happy to say that we joined the crazy, beautiful ranks of award-winning wedding photographers in 2018. Find out more about these below, or bounce on over to our PORTFOLIO to check out more of our work.
Showcasing the very best in documentary wedding photography, This is Reportage really share our values: Nothing staged, no poses, just pure, natural images taken by some of the world’s very best photographers. There are two different awards: Reportage Awards are for fantastic individual captures, with just the top 4% of submissions becoming awarded.
They also have Story Awards, which are for a series of 15 – 20 images, all from a single wedding, and it was also incredibly tough to attain one of these, with just the top 6% of submissions awarded. We’ve been recognised in both of these categories, and in December 2018 we were in the elite group of TOP 30 THIS IS REPORTAGE PHOTOGRAPHERS – we’re still pinching ourselves about this!

Our story awards:
This ace organisation brings together fearless couples and passionate professional photographers from around the world. Every two months, a panel of expert curators selects the very best wedding photos (about 2 out of every 100 submissions!) as Fearless Awards. 2018 brought us 5 FEARLESS AWARDS in total and we were in TOP 40 FEARLESS PHOTOGRAPHERS WORLDWIDE and also THE BEST UK FEARLESS PHOTOGRAPHERS IN 2018.
The Masters is a competition for the best wedding photography in the UK and Ireland. An international jury presents new awards to the best, most exceptional and innovative wedding photos every three months. In 2018 we received two awards from Masters of Wedding Photography, winners Masters Round 7 2018, and it was a real thrill to see our style and approach being commended.
OK, this is a biggie for us. TWIA is the only regional and national client voted awards in the wedding industry. It was set up to recognize excellent wedding suppliers and to help anyone organising a wedding find the best people for their big day. We’ve been highly commended and have also been awarded regional winners for the West Midlands. This means our couples are really happy with our work, which means the absolute world to us. We flipping love you guys!
HERE’S THE FEEDBACK FROM OUR AWESOME COUPLES
Rangefinder is synonymous with innovation, and it’s super prestigious. You can’t just apply to take part in this international competition, you have to be nominated. Once a photographer gets nominated, they put together a submission of 30 images that represent their signature as a wedding photographer.
These emerging photographers show promise in taking the aesthetics of wedding photography to new places. Visionaries today, they are the educators and mentors of the future. In 2019 we were nominated and shortlisted which is a HUGE honour!
