After a super response to our first blog post asking couples from our first 5 years as wedding photographers what their favourite images were then and now, in this second part we look at the years 2014-2018.
On July 4th we celebrated 10 years since our first wedding as the official photographer. Over those ten years, we have seen trends come and go, experienced all kinds of wedding from an intimate guest list of 10 to a 400 strong raucous farmers wedding. We’ve travelled from Cambridge to Cancun and beyond. We’ve seen laughter and happy tears, and some not so happy (but only some…) We’ve learned from every single one, all of them. We’ve attended conferences, workshops and seminars, constantly striving to be better for our clients, and the next one is in November. We’ve won various international awards for individual wedding photos and overall as a couple. We had too had a wedding in 2014, allowing us to call ourselves one of the UK’s best husband and wife wedding photography teams (natch.) Lina has spoken about our work and brand at various conferences including the Fearless Photographers European Conference, for which she still pinches herself. She also had our logo tattooed on her arm after that, Tom…well not yet.
