2018 - what a year!
The last 12 months have been absolutely incredible as you will see from our favourite images below. Between us, 60,000 images delivered to 80 different couples. That's 80 different weddings and around the same amount of pre-wedding shoots. To say we have been busy would be quite the understatement! We say it again and again, but the thing we love about being a wedding photographer the most is the people. We absolutely love visiting new venues - and we visited so many new locations in 2018, from Scotland to Devon and just about everywhere in between - but it's not venues that make weddings, it's people. We have absolutely loved meeting all our couples in 2018 and getting to know them a little. Because of the people who book us, every wedding is always so different so our work always feels new and original. People continue to book us for what we do best - natural photography, with no cheesy poses and no staging or repeating of moments. Every kiss is real - every embrace is real - every tear - ever laugh. And 2018 certainly did not disappoint when it came to emotions and amazing moments for us to capture. Last year we travelled the country staying in more premier inns and travel lodges than we can remember and meeting so many lovely people along the way. We were also so happy to be given a Bridebook Platinum award (yey!), be a regional finalist for Wedding Photographer Of The Year in the TWIA wedding awards and we were also featured on four professional blogs (thank you!) So, 2018 really was an incredible year and we could not have asked for it to be any better.
Our 150 best - or should that be our 150 favourites?
As we mentioned, we edited and delivered well over 60,000 images to our couples last year. That means we had quite a job picking our 'best' images. So, in the end, we just picked 150 of our favourite images (the initial selection was over 750!) We would have loved to have selected more, but that would have been a little overwhelming (and possibly broken the internet - we hear that is a thing). Just like every year we couldn't feature every wedding we photographed - we've just picked out a few personal favourite moments out of a possible 60,000!
We are currently booking up really quickly for 2020 and 2021 (and are 99% booked for 2019). If you're interested in booking us as your wedding photographer, please get in touch here now to avoid disappointment.
The biggest thank you as always goes to every single couple who booked us to photograph their wedding day. It's such a privilege and a pleasure to photograph every wedding (we have now photographed well over 300 since we started M and G Photographic back in 2013). We start out every year and finish it with the same feeling - so honoured to be picked time and time again to document so many weddings, from the thousands of photographers out there on offer. So thank you to all our couples - we hope you like our Best 150! Also, a huge thank you to everyone who second shot for us or assisted us at a wedding last year: George, Barnaby, Karl, Dan, Jonathan, Sarah and Mary. You're all amazing!
