The best wedding photographs of 2018: A year in review

Would it be really cliche to start this post by saying that I can’t believe where this year has gone? Probably! So….. where has it gone?

It’s been a funny old year for us. Professionally, it’s been an amazing, fun packed year working in loads of new and exciting places. Our couples have been superb. Every single bloody one of them have been incredible. We have shot so, so many weddings this year that have lit that fire in our bellies and really made us remember why we love what we do so much. Not that we ever needed the reminder, but it’s nice to have those moments of “wow, this is actually my job” hit you every so often.

The best wedding photographs of 2018

Professionally: We’ve covered thousands of miles and taken hundreds of thousands of photos. We have seen loads of familiar faces and been inspired by new ones. We’ve also been honoured to shoot the very first weddings ever at a few venues. Firstly Henstead Exotic gardens for Hannah & Ty followed shortly after by Katie and Chris’ wedding at Wenden Vineyard.  Not to mention several receptions at the family residences.

It’s also been a great year for features as we made our debut on Rock my wedding. Our work has also graced the likes of Love my dress, Love our wedding, Brides Magazine and Your perfect wedding photographer to name a few. GoHen also named us as one of the Top 50 wedding accounts on instagram! So if you aren’t following us on insta, you’re missing out. Our own wedding was also featured on BBC news when I (Louise) contributed to an article about a change in marriage laws.

The summer heatwave

As much as it was a brilliant summer, there’s no denying that it was an exhausting one too. Mostly because of that heatwave that didn’t seem to end. Working up to 18 hours in that heat pushed us to our limits. At times it felt literally impossible, especially on double header weekends. *Note to self, no more double headers.* (For the non wedding industry folk, that means shooting two weddings, across two days back to back) BUT it all worked out in the end, so no real complaints here.

There has been stand out moment after stand out moment. One particularly emotional example of this occurred at Lauren & Tom’s Leez priory wedding back in May. Lauren found out she was pregnant just after booking their wedding. They decided to incorporate the happy news into the day and have a gender reveal at the wedding. You’ll find the exact moment they found out the gender of their baby further down this post- and boy was that a tear jerker!

Switching it up

We’ve also switched it up this year. We made the leap from Canon to Sony just last month and we’re already loving it. Having been a Canon shooter exclusively since my college days some 13+ years go, it’s taken some getting used to, but it’s been well worth it! You’ll see throughout this post a blend of Canon and Sony images. We also introduced our new wedding albums, which I absolutely adore. Again, this was another switch of suppliers for us.

Behind the camera

Personally, it’s been a so so year. It’s the year I turned 30. The year we both jumped 15,000 out of an airplane. The year we volunteered our skills and helped re-home several pups in need. We also attended our first wedding at guests since we became wedding photographers ourselves almost 8 years ago. It was great, but very strange (and slightly unsettling) being at a wedding and not working!

We were actually expecting to be posting this blog from a little further afield too. Just before Christmas we thought we’d be moving into a new house in the countryside with our own studio. We planned to be starting 2019 in the new house, getting settled and preparing for the year ahead. It’s something we’ve been working towards for the last 5 or so years. We were packed, ready to go, just about to exchange contracts and then things fell through at the last step. It can’t be helped, but it wasn’t the way we planned to be finishing up 2018. Whilst we’ve had a fabulous year at work, personally, things have been a bit all over the place. So here’s hoping things realign in 2019 and it’s a brilliant year all round!

Thank yous

Our couples- Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your day. Thank you for trusting us to tell your story and being so willing and eager to let us do our thing. You’ve been superb and we love you all. You make all this possible, it’s been a pleasure.

Families and friends of our couples- We know having two people hanging about and pointing cameras in your general direction is less than ideal, but thanks for being so fantastic about it anyway. Thanks for getting stuck in and making each other laugh and smile. Good on you for making memories and letting us capture them.

Suppliers- The vast majority of you have been excellent to work with this year. It’s been a lot of fun meeting new faces and laughing with ones we already know and love. It’s always an honour to work with talented, professional and passionate folk. Thank you for working with us to help make our couples day perfect. Thanks for following, liking, sharing our work and supporting us.

The good bit

Now the waffle is out the way, here are just a few of our favourites from 2018. We have been mega harsh this year and trimmed it back to around 160 of our favourite shots of the year. There are literally hundreds we could have chosen and i’m already thinking about doing a follow up post in the new year, so watch this space.

Here it is. Our year, A very small selection of the best wedding photographs of 2018 for us.
