To Infinity… and Beyond!– Buzz Lightyear


The best documentary wedding photography in the UK for 2018

Dear friends, welcome to my 2018 annual roundup!
With the idea of less being more, I have decided to share only 17 of my favourite photos of the year (in contrast to previous round-ups where I’ve presented well over 100…)

It’s not that I’ve documented fewer moments or won less awards, in-fact the complete opposite. This year I have been shooting more than ever and giving my couples even greater detailed and comprehensive collections. I’ve also received an incredible amount of awards:

Please check out more of my international awards here.

Winning 30 awards in 2018 from the WPJA makes me the number 1 documentary wedding photographer in the UK, and in the top 3 for Europe! I’m also in the Top 100 in the World on the ISPWP

Sometime around 2014 a good friend and fellow wedding photographer showed me the Fearless Photographers website and I immediately set my sights on winning one. It was a completely abstract idea though – every image I saw on Fearless was finessed and perfect, it was like a lightbulb went on where I knew it was essential for me to try harder and be the best version of Aaron that I could possibly be. I dreamed of winning just 1 award, that turned into 2 or 3 which later snowballed into 50+ over 8 different associations. At the time of writing this I’m honoured to have won my 150th wedding photography award!

But of course it’s not just about the accolades. Throughout 2018 I’ve grown as a photographer, father and husband. As we move into 2019 I’m able to reflect back on the wonderful year I’ve had bringing up my two incredible children (Imogen & Noah) and spending time with my soulmate Lindsay.

I hope you enjoy looking through these special photos, they’re all moments captured throughout the UK; from Herefordshire to Southampton and Hampshire to Northampton.

With the deepest love and sincerity I would like to thank all of my 2018 couples for trusting me. In the words of the great philosopher Buzz Lightyear: “To Infinity… and Beyond!”
