UK Best Wedding Photographer North West
Regional Winner at The Wedding Industry Awards 2018
Two years ago I had the proudest moments of my career when I picked up the titles of “North West Wedding Photographer of the Year” and “UK Wedding Photographer of the Year“. Unbelievably special moments for me and the trophies still have pride of place on top of my piano. Those awards were a massive vindication of how I take photos and how I run my whole business around the amazing couples who let me and my cameras into one of the most special days of their lives.
I’m absolutely delighted to have just been re-crowned the North West Wedding Photographer of the Year in The Wedding Industry Awards 2018, making me one of the best eight wedding photographers in the country once again and putting me in with a chance of the national award again when the results are announced at a glamorous awards ceremony in London in January!
I enter a lot of awards where you upload images and they’re judged by a panel of photographers and you get awards that way, but this award is different. As much as it’s based on the quality of your work (as any photography award should be) it’s also about how your couples feel about working with you, how they feel about the service and me as a person as well as the photos themselves. It’s also based on my own ethos and philosophies for why I do this for a living and what I want to create. So it’s a really truly amazing feeling to win it again, especially when I was competing with over 50 other insanely talented photographers from the North West!
So thank you to The Wedding Industry Awards judges for giving me this award again, but most of all thank you to all the couples who voted for me and who trust me and invite me into their lives. But also thanks to every couple who has ever trusted me since my first wedding in 2010 – this is for you all!
Here are some photos of people looking as happy as I was when I heard the news I’d won!
