Perfect photographer

I wanted a photographer for my wedding day that would take amazing shots and not the typical wedding pictures everyone has. My husband isn't a 'stand and pose type of guy'
When meeting brendan for the first time, he is such a lovely and friendly guy. It was very easy to say yes and he knew exactly what I wanted.
He spent the first half of the day with me, before making his way to the wedding venue taking sneaky shots of my soon to be husband (did I mention he hates his picture being taken)
Brendan was great at getting shots of him. After the ceremony he came with us to the tattoo parlour and then to the next venue.
All my wedding pictures are amazing. There are a few that were staged and posed for but the rest were just randomly taken....which I love.
He was very accommodating and made the day even more special

Brendan- hardest working man at the wedding!

Brendan worked tirelessly to record our day, going from home to the venue and between bride, groom and guests. He was easy going and friendly, getting the best out of our smallest guests. Our photos reflect our personality and Brendan worked hard to deliver them to us really quickly after the event. Thank you so much!

Gràinne & Stu 03/08/23

Would highly recommend Brendan, he went to recce the venue before our wedding at Leeds Castle to ensure he knew where would make the best shots. He put everyone at ease from the moment he arrived made the getting ready experience much more relaxed and was cracking jokes from the very start. He has a very informal approach and this has come through in his beautiful candid shots which is what we wanted. Communication was great from start to Finnish, and given he was there all day he is exceptional value for money. He really added something to our day captured all the shots we wanted without making it too formal an affair. If you're looking for a very professional photographer, who shots the best candid shots, just book him you will not be disappointed 😊

Entertaining, punctual and professional. Couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture my special day.

Was a brilliant experience working with Brendan. He was punctual and kept the wedding party entertained throughout. All felt relaxed which made the smiles even brighter.

Brilliant photographer !

Brendan was excellent, and did a fantastic job of shepherding different family members around to get the perfect photos. He is really easy to deal with and brings his own charm to the day. Everyone loved him and would highly recommend him. Thanks a million!

Our wedding 30 July 2022

We chose Brendan because we liked his portfolio, the quality of images, and his approach which was totally about what we wanted. He was thoroughly prepared, and that shows in the images we’ve received - completely capturing the joy of the day, with beautiful photos of friends and family. He worked so hard . Thoroughly recommend him. Thank you Brendan!

A truly professional service that made our wedding complete.

Choosing Brendan to photgraph our Wedding truly made our day perfect. We met with Brendan before the day and we knew that we had made the right choice. His professional approach and attention to detail made sure that he was able to capture the day not simply in photos, but also In atmosphere. Not only did Brendan manage to make my husband and I feel relaxed and comfortable but he also created a great rapport with our guests (they all loved him!). The result was that Brendan was able to give us a wonderful portfolio of photos that truly captured our day and which we can treasure. We really cannot thank Brendan enough for all his help and support and we highly recommend him to any couple who want to make their day complete.

Best Photographer Ever

Brendan made our day, he was professional and fun and made us completely relaxed. All the guests were impressed by him and we think he got more compliments than the bride. We would highly recommend him!

The Saunders Wedding

Wow. What can I say. We contacted Brendan a month or 2 before our wedding date desperately looking for a photographer who could capture every moment. Not only was he so flexible, but his photos are exquisite. We got our photos back a few days ago and the tears haven’t stopped! We gave him absolutely no direction of what we wanted, he turned up with his camera and he smashed it. He caught moments I didn’t think he would have caught, he improvised amazingly and truly did make our day a day to remember forever.

The up-close shots at the ceremony were so special and more than that, we didn’t even notice he was there!

Not only is Brendan a lovely man with the quirkiest personality.. he is also the most talented photographer I’ve ever seen.

I would 100% recommended Brendan for your upcoming wedding! You won’t be disappointed!

Brendan, thank you ever so much.

Excellent experience!

My husband Dan and I had a “Covid wedding” last summer.

We could’ve postponed the wedding, but decided to go ahead, even with all the restrictions, aiming to perhaps celebrate at a later date.

It was however a huge adjustment from the original plans, as we were only allowed to have a small group of people there with us and couldn’t even have a reception afterwards.

I didn’t get to wear my dream white gown with the long train and the veil, nor have my dad walk me down the isle (this bit in particular was quite difficult). I am Brazilian and due to the pandemic; my family was not able to fly over for the event. They had to virtually join in via Zoom.

We still wanted to make this day as special as possible and to register the occasion, which is why we’ve decided to hire a professional photographer. Brendan was a God send! He effortlessly managed to capture the most wonderful moments of our special day, beginning to end.

As the bride, I was the last one to arrive, and therefore, I could barely see and speak to anyone before the ceremony. I was pleased to see all the pictures that Brendan took of everyone’s arrival and to see the wonderful moments he was able to capture on camera. He was even able to include my family on some of the photos (over a mobile screen).

During the ceremony, Brendan’s job was not easy, as due to Covid rules, he was not allowed to move around. He had to take all photos from the same angle. He did however do it brilliantly.

Dan and I were pleased with all the beautiful photos Brendan took and made not only a lovely wedding album for ourselves, but we also had one made for my parents as a gift, since they couldn’t attend in person.

Brendan made us feel super comfortable and is a delight to work with. We would highly recommend him to any weddings and other important events.

Thank you, Brendan, for doing such a great job! We hope to work with you again in the future!

Love,
Ana & Dan

Excellent photography, highly recommended

My wife and I were recommended Brendan for our wedding photographer and he did not disappoint! Brendan was charming and friendly, and produced absolutely outstanding photos of our special day. He was great fun to work with - Brendan made us and our guests feel at ease and directed each shot with a healthy dose of humour. We are delighted with the results - Brendan captured memories that will truly last a lifetime. We can’t recommend highly enough!

Couldn't be better!

We asked Brendan to photograph our wedding when we were let down by another photographer; and we couldn't of been happier that we did. On our wedding day he immediately put us at ease and seamlessly captured beautiful photos of our day. He was very friendly and chatty which helped with all the nerves on the wedding morning. He thought about location and where best to capture the special moments. More than taht, Bendan felt like a true part of our wedding with many of our guests commenting on what a fun and involving photographer we had. At the end of the day, he left the venue but had to race back when he saw the sunset at the bottom of the venues drive way; he said he could not leave without getting a picture against that backdrop. His dedication paid off as it is one of our favourite photos.
We were so excited to receive our photos after the wedding and they arrived very promptly. We ordered them on USB and they came presented in a lovely box with our names engraved. When we saw the photos, it was lovely to see all the unscripted moments that had been caught, he really did capture the feel and emotions of the day. We would very strongly recommend Brendan for your special day.

Captured the happiest moments of us and our guests at our wedding

We got married in London and since we live overseas, we did not know any photographers there. We found Brendan when searching for photographers over the web and would recommend him and his work a thousand times over! He was efficient from the minute we got in touch till after the wedding itself. He answered every email immediately. On the day he came up with innovative ideas and captured many special and happy moments, in a natural way. Both ourselves and our guests loved him and he fit in well with the wedding party. His relaxed, yet professional manner, captured both big and small moments. He sent us the pics on a USB, a few days after the wedding, by courier mail. We loved the result. We have plenty of lovely photos to document such a memorable day.
