2019 – what a year! Our favourite moments from the last 12 months

January 1, 2020

So here it is, our ‘Favourite Moments Of 2019. What a year it was! 2019 was the year we won a total 32 individual awards recognising our work but perhaps the highlight was when we won “Best Wedding Photographers In Yorkshire and The North East” at the Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA). Our awards last year have included Fearless, This Is Reportage, Photographers Keeping It Real, Ninedots and WPS awards – but the TWIA award for Best Wedding Photographer was undoubtedly the most amazing achievement. We are still on cloud nine after winning it – thanks again to the TWIA judges!

However, we really will remember 2019 as yet another year we spent capturing the amazing moments you are about to see. Our ethos is focused on these individual moments that all add together to tell the story of each couple’s day. Some moments are comic, some are incredibly happy, some are poignant. Each moment we capture is unique and each moment is real. Because we believe in no posing and no staging – Afterall our motto is ‘Don’t Get Posed, Get Married!’. We just let our couples and all their guests relax, be themselves and have the best day ever and we capture it all. It is these unscripted images of unique and sometimes very unexpected moments that we are known for.

Below you’ll find our favourite natural moments from the last 12 months. We hope you enjoy looking through it as much as we did photographing it all!

We would like to thank each and every couple who shared their 2019 wedding day with us. We really did have the best year ever and that was down to you. We could not stop smiling as we put this post together and picked out of favourite moments. We hope all our couples have enjoyed looking through the selection above and, most importantly, loved all the images we took for them. We have received so many lovely messages of positive feedback from all our weddings. We love our job and it’s made even better knowing our couples love the photos we take for them, as in the end, this really is the most important thing. We want our couples to look back on their images in the years to come and be transported back to that moment and that feeling, be it kissing on a crowded dance floor or sliding down a helter skelter in a wedding dress without a care in the world. We find that if we let people be themselves, beautiful moments just happen naturally. Also, a big thank you to all the venues and suppliers we worked with. We really love our job and working with so many talented people makes it even better.

Now it’s onto 2020 – we are writing this on New Year’s Day after all! We have so many amazing weddings to look forward to in the next 12 months and we cannot wait to photograph every one. So many amazing venues to visit and so many new people to meet and new memories to be capture – we cannot wait to get started!

If you’re getting married in 2021 or 2022 and like our style of natural photography and have enjoyed looking through our best of 2019, we would love to hear from you and if we’re available, we’d love to photograph your wedding in our own trademark style.

In total we have now photographed well over 600 weddings. Every wedding day is unique, every couple is different and we love this element to our job. It means our work is forever changing. Our approach is always the same though: we just want to capture the most beautiful wedding photographs possible and feel so privileged this – taking photographs of the very happiest moments! – is our job.

All the best to everyone for 2020 who we have worked with over the last 12 months and if we’re photographing your wedding this year – we will see you very soon!
