“Andy undertook our wedding photography...and we are so happy with the photographs that he produced. We wanted a few formal shots and lots of casual photographs and Andy did not disappoint. The technical standard of his shots were amazing but more than that he captured the very essence of our day, so that when we look through the photographs, we can relive a our special day over and over again. Thank you, Andy for such great photographs.”
Katherine and Dave Roberts

“I have just seen all the photographs from Laura and Ben’s wedding...I have NEVER seen better photographs, they really capture the whole event and have enabled me to relive this great day. You are both outstanding at your job and I will recommend you whenever I can.”

“The photos are wonderful...the montage photo is also a great bonus and I love the fact you’ve managed to capture our sell out audience.”
Elspeth Todd, Farnborough Symphony Orchestra

“As soon as Andy arrived at our house, he was able to put my children as ease. He struck the right balance between fun, engagement and clarity in the instructions he gave to them. What was created was a series of posed images that radiate with natural smiles that we as parents instantly recognise and want to have as a family keepsake.”
David Gumbrell

“Thank you so much for all of the photos. It was a pleasure working with you and the headmistress is delighted with your photographs.”
Dawn Pilkington, St. Catherine’s School, Bramley

“Many thanks for the photos. They are terrific as always.”
Peter Birkett, Farnborough Symphony Orchestra

“Thank you so very much for all your hard work at the graduation last week. The photos are really fabulous and we are really very grateful.”
Katie Slatford, George Abbot School

“We are really pleased with all the photos, very professional...we will definitely recommend you whole heartedly in the future for anyone who needs a photographer.”
Maxine Caddick, Fresch Café, Woking

“As a family, we had such fun during our photo-shoot. All four of us usually avoid being in front of a camera if we possibly can, so we thought that Andy would have his work cut out for him! We're still not quite sure what magic he worked to get us all posing and looking so relaxed, never mind larking about wearing funny hats for some Christmas shots! The fact that we have so many good photos of the four of us together is testimony in itself to the quality of Andy's work. Our respective families will love the results as well!
Rachel Boxer

“We took our two small children along to a photo session with Andy, he provided a very personable service, we had an enjoyable day and above all the photos are wonderful. Thank you very much! We'd highly recommend and we will return!”
Katie Henry

“Andy was the perfect choice as photographer for our wedding. We met with him twice ahead of time to take some engagement shots and he really wanted to ensure we were happy and comfortable with the camera and with the resulting photos. For our wedding he did not disappoint! Andy completely captured the 'essence' of the day and also captured all the little details which would otherwise have been forgotten. We've had so many compliments on the photos from the day from those in attendance and from those who weren't. Andy was polite and friendly at all times. Photos were received really promptly and we couldn't be happier with them. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andy as your photographer!
Nicole Freeman

“I just wanted to say how delighted we are with the pictures, You’re very talented and we have had many compliments over the photos you took. But it’s not only the photos that impressed me so much. You are very professional and made us all feel completely at ease…not at all self-conscious.”
Lisa Jones

“Truly the most exceptional service we’ve ever received. The quality of the photos are superb, but more importantly Andy captured all the shots we wanted by taking the time to get to know us and what we wanted. Best of all we genuinely had fun during both the engagement shots and on the big day itself. The turnaround time for photos was remarkable and we find ourselves telling everyone about how great Andy was.”
