Working with you was fantastic - you are very professional, whilst still being very approachable and great fun. Your photos of our wedding in Weymouth last October are absolutely stunning and everything we'd hoped for and more. We opted for the top tier package and we're really glad we did - made things so much easier and less stressful on the day - not having to worry about if you captured everything (since you brought along a 2nd photographer) and you were there until the wee hours too. Before the wedding day we met up with you over a few pints and explained our hopes & ideas for the day which you took on board and wove into your own style. What was captured was all the beautiful little natural moments that we wanted, plus all the big formal photos too. Couldn't have asked for more! You also attended the wedding in a great suit, so blended right in and didn't make anyone feel awkward or intruded upon. So glad we picked you for our photos that'll be hung on our walls, and our family's walls for many many years to come smile emoticon

What can we say! From start to finish, you gave us the most amazing service!! We were both so nervous and you completely put us at ease. It was amazing to have you as part of our day and it shows in the photos how much fun everyone had having their photos taken by you. You went above and beyond providing us the most amazing photos, far better than we ever imagined and now we can't stop looking at them! I want to do it all again. We are so unbelievably thankful and can't recommend you highly enough! You truly captured every single moment of our day! Can we do it again? Pretty please? x
