Like many photographers around the world Rangefinder Magazine has been a source of inspiration for us since we began our journey into wedding photography. Their annual Rising Stars awards have been something we have looked forward to seeing each year, always with a hope that one day we might grace the pages and see ourselves on the coveted list. 2015 was that year for us, it marked the completion of our biggest career goal and it is an honour for us as two photographers from Yorkshire, to be recognised as two of the world’s leading wedding photographers.

We’ve won 9 ISPWP awards over 2015-16.

The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) is a rarity among wedding photography organizations. “Photographers cannot simply buy an ISPWP membership, they have to earn it. Our requirements are experience, talent, and professionalism. To be accepted, a photographer must have shot at least 50 weddings, submit their portfolio for review, agree to operate under the ISPWP Code of Conduct, and have an ISPWP Sponsor or four references. And THEN they have to be voted in by current members. In short, when you hire an ISPWP Photographer, you are hiring a talented veteran with a track record, peer recognition, and a passion for creating heirloom images of your wedding.”
