Our wedding

Very professional, knows what the customer wants, high quality pictures, very flexible for the time and price and very flexible for a payment method as well. We have asked for a video and has done much more than what we expected on the video. We are very surprised and very happy that we have chosen for our wedding Glenn Smith Blue Ribbon photos.

I had my wedding pictures taken by Glenn. He arrived at my parents' house at 9am and starting taking pics of us having our make up done, etc. Then early afternoon he met up with my husband and took some lovely ones of my husband with his dad and parents.

Then he came back to me and took the most gorgeous pictures of my children and myself when I got into my dress, by the time it was my wedding at 3pm he was ready to take more and my did he take some stunning shots, he also stayed at our venue till around 11pm so a long day in the end but still Glenn captured some beautiful pictures.

Unfortunately 2 weeks after my wedding my dear nana passed away and the lovely Glenn kindly printed some beautiful pictures of my late nana which I can鈥檛 thank him enough! The work he puts into the photos is 110% every picture was stunning. Definitely worth every penny! Thank you Glenn!

We found Glenn via the internet. He met us at the hotel the night before our wedding and we went through our wishes and requirements.
Glenn was very friendly but professional throughout our day and spent over four hours with us on our special day. The photos captured our happiness perfectly.

Renewal of vows. Glenn was a delight to work with from start to finish. He was very attentive and ensured that he had a good understanding of our expectations, guiding and supporting us as it was a long time since we had done anything like this. He did not rush us and was unobtrusive on the actual day, responding to any photo shots we needed and making them work for us. We requested a Hollywood Back Drop to give the day a different edge and some unusual photos. This worked well and was a talking point with some amazing shots being taken. Glenn kept in constant touch by e-mail, letting us know progress on our shots and where to access them easily to begin our choice for the album. He also visited us on numerous occasions to assist with the photos, album types, etc and the different sizes and effects we could have. This has resulted in a perfect album and key rings for the guests to treasure. Overall a wonderful experience. Thank you Glenn.
