We really miss weddings. We absolutely love our “job” and cannot wait to get out photographing them again but until then we have been going back through the years and finding our favourite frames to share on our social media channels – if you would like to follow along you can do so at #yorkplaceretro. It all started because Fujifilm Japan asked us to create a video about looking through our past portfolio in a stay-at-home world and once we started looking we couldn’t stop! It was so wonderful looking through and reliving all of our weddings since 2006 and picking our favourite 10 reportage images from each and we actually found that so often we saw the weddings with “new eyes”. It’s one of the fascinating things about photography that images can change meaning and significance over time both for the viewer and for the photographer as our style and understanding of the chemistry of images evolves and actually looking back we would certainly have blogged some of our weddings a little differently than we did at the time as new photographs seem to reveal themselves to us. Our knowledge of reportage photography and what makes a reportage photograph interesting to us has certainly developed over the years and it was (and is!) fascinating as we go through our photographs to find new images that we never fully appreciated before as well as see the progression as some of our ideas began to evolve over time.

Though in this case we only had to travel back as 2019 it was tricky putting Olivia and Elliott’s wedding blog together as there were so many frames we loved that I’m sure we could make a completely different blog post if we wanted (and perhaps we will on some future date as new ideas about our photography reveal new images once again!) Olivia and Elliott’s wedding was a dream for us; the gorgeous couple didn’t want any posed imagery at all and just trusted us to capture their wedding in our candid, reportage street style, with London providing the perfect backdrop! Their wedding was fun, relaxed, full of so much charm and joy and we had the wildest time getting to the funky venue (the amazing TT Liquor Whisky Bar) in the couple’s open-top Mini, flying through the streets of London so close to the road with Olivia drinking champagne in front alongside her groom and us and our cameras in the back; it was truly what memories are made of and we cannot wait to get back to days like these very soon, though this one, and the lovely Olivia and Elliot, will definitely stay in our memories forever.
