    Alex was our photographer on our wedding day.

    Cannot express how lucky we were to have Alex with us on our special day. You are an absolute gent and were the best company to be around. You professionally organised things seemlessly, calmed our nerves and made our day even more fun and enjoyable than we could have imagined. We can't thank you enough for all the special moments you captured. They'll forever be treasured and adored by us, our family and our friends.

    Best Photographer… EVER!!

    We booked Alex for our wedding photographs after seeing some of his previous work and we couldn’t be happier with how our photographs turned out. Alex was extremely professional in his approach to our big day and put us both at ease with his personable attitude.

    As part of the package, we had an engagement shoot a couple of months prior, which gave us the chance to become familiar and comfortable with Alex, ready for our big day. In the weeks leading up to our wedding, Alex kept in touch to make sure that all details were finalised and that everything was in place to make for a successful day!

    We both absolutely love the images that Alex delivered and will most definitely be recommending him to other friends and family!

    Thanks, Alex.

    Cannot recommend enough.. extremely talented!

    We were extremely lucky to of had Alex as our photographer!

    Alex captured everything, every minor detail from start to finish. He made every single one of us feel comfortable and at ease, and to be honest half the time we didn’t realise he was there capturing those special moments. Nothing was too much for him. From our engagement shoot, pre wedding meeting and the morning of our Wedding, Alex was there the whole time to answer any questions, keep us in the loop and accommodated us especially when we had to postpone our Wedding twice due to Covid. Alex made this process easy for us without any worries.

    From my bridesmaids to our guests, everyone complimented our photographer, he interacted with guests and commented on how approachable he was. An absolute gentleman that helped calm those pre wedding nerves.

    Every single photo is outstanding and simply beautiful and there is not one photo we dislike out of the hundreds he had taken!

    Anyone would be lucky to have Alex as their photographer. We would 100% recommend him to anyone looking as you will not be disappointed at all. Again… Thank You so much for capturing the most perfect day & letting us relive it through your sensational photos.
