The best photographer ever!

Carl and his name are warm, friendly and professional completely putting us at ease. Our wedding took place abroad in Santorini - Carl was so helpful before and after the wedding. We are really pleased with our photos and film. So many moments of our wedding perfectly we are constantly looking through and reliving our big day.

Many thanks,
Daniel & Makeda

It was amazing!

Carl was fantastic! He’s very friendly, professional and easy to work with. He came to our shoot prepared with mood boards and so many different ideas. The service was quick and efficient as well; our pictures were ready in less than 24 hours.

Thank you again Carl!

Amazing Photography service

CJDreams Photography exceeded all our expectations! Carl's professionalism and promptness were matched only by his incredible talent behind the lens. He captured our surprise engagement with such finesse, making us feel completely at ease throughout the shoot. Not only did he deliver stunning photos, but the videos he created were truly magical, allowing us to relive the moment over and over again. Carl's attention to detail and dedication to his craft truly shines through in his work. We couldn't be happier with the results and highly recommend CJDreams Photography to anyone looking for a top-notch photographer who goes above and beyond to deliver exceptional results!

CJDream team are incredible!

Where can I begin to explain Carl and his amazing team.
First and foremost they made us feel so comfortable and it was evident they were about putting the customer first. Carl really thinks about your day and how his team can make it work. His preparation in the lead-up to the event is excellent, with video calls to get to know us and follow-up emails to clarify details. The CJDream team are group that understands the assignment and gave us the relaxed, personable and family feel we wanted for our wedding (even when this meant a handful of confetti to the face from my Mum!). I would highly recommend Carl and his team to anyone and wouldn't think twice about booking them!

Highly recommend Team!

We are so grateful for Carl and his team and how they were able to accommodate us! From start to finish, the process and all communication was seamless.

Our photographer, Carl, did an amazing job on the day! His energy and friendliness made us feel at ease as we were uncomfortable in front of a camera. The photos came out beautifully and we can’t wait to have them printed! Our Videographer Alex was superb too.

A massive thank you to the CJDreams Productions team, for providing all the support in ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

We would 101% recommend CJDreams on your wedding day! We are very happy we went with them! :)

Brilliant choice for our special day

Working with Carl made everything so easy and smooth on our wedding day. He listened to everything that was asked of him and created some beautiful moments I will treasure through his talented film skills. Carl is punctual, professional, kind and helpful in every way. We are very happy with the service we received and would recommend him to others. The price was also fantastic for what we got. All in all, very happy.

Professional, incredibly fun and absolutely stunning photos!

Carl and his team are quite simply, incredible. We had such a fantastic time with them on our wedding day and they made the whole experience so much fun.

They were able to capture us both getting ready at different locations. This also means you get more variety in your images from the ceremony, reception and dinner. In the evening, one swaps their camera for a flash allowing them to capture incredible images on the dance floor.

The final photos are absolutely breath-taking and we couldn’t be happier with them. We’ve had so many compliments from friends and family, not just about the incredible images, but how nice they were on the day. We can’t wait to get these printed and put up in the house.

If your wedding photos are important to you, there’s no need to look further than CJDreams Photography

Carl is the Guy!!!

Carl and his team are so talented! We are so happy with the results of the work. From the beginning to the end, your friendliness and calm manner gave us all the confidence we needed. In addition to that, the excellent services you offered was beyound our expectation, and we will not hesitate to recommend you to others. Each and every photograph takes us back to a very special memory of our wedding day your photographs are going to be our memories forever. We keep going back to watch the wedding film which is something to say since most couples we know only watch their film once! You also have the ability to interpret our vision in a way that was non-intrusive and natural too. We really can't thankyou enough! Thankyou.

Absolutely fantastic!

What can I say?! Carl and his team are one of the loveliest guys you’ll ever meet. Secondly, their photography and films are just stunning. Carl was our wedding photographer on the day while his partner Alex covered the filming. They made us feel relaxed and captured the day in full. Everyone we spoke to loved them. We can’t thank Carl enough for all the hard work you put in on the lead up, during the day and afterwards. We can’t stop looking at the photos and watching the wedding film. Highly recommended. Thank you! Ernestina.

“Excellent photos, professional, candid style. Carl was excellent from the start”

Excellent photos, professional, candid style. Carl was excellent from the start. He clearly knew his stuff, explained it all very well, and was able to answer any questions we had. We had a video call with him beforehand to discuss our needs and get more comfortable with him as a person. He is very friendly, forthcoming with direction (which was very helpful since schedule on day was pretty tight), and was very professional and charming on the day. He captured some brilliant shots, we got a taster of photos very soon after the wedding. We then received the remaining images back within about 6 weeks. Would highly recommend him – his style was modern and candid – less posed shots, although he would accommodate those of course if we wished. He got some amazing images of the whole venue and from different perspectives (guest / bridal party) , so you could get a sense of the day all round. Well done.

Carl was fantastic and wonderful to work

Carl was fantastic and wonderful to work with. he was so friendly and he really captured the spirit of our day. He caught every moment perfectly and made us and our guests feel really comfortable which lead to some great natural shots which we will always treasure. He was completely dedicated, from bridal prep to party time in the evening, as well as ensuring that we were prepared and happy in the run up to the wedding, he went above and beyond. The photos themselves are stunning, we received a sneak peek very soon after the wedding which was so exciting to see, and the turnaround for the full package was very quick after that. We can’t wait to share them all with our friends and family.

Capturing great memories

We initially met Carl through a referral and were hugely impressed with not only his range of images but the way he took the time to ask about our lives and what we had planned for our special day. Our whole experience of working with him was brilliant, from the way he relaxed us for our pre-wedding shoot to the way he quietly went about documenting the wedding without any fuss. Our photos are fabulous and a great way for us to look back on the day. Couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you again – Dan & Chantel

Amazing photos and very professional

Carl was such a pleasure to work with – he put as at ease on the engagement shoot and easily blended in on the wedding day to capture some fantastic shots without making us feel like we were under the spotlight. We love his style and were really pleased with the photos that came back – really capturing the feel of the day. Thank you!

Great, friendly and professional wedding photographer!

Carl and his team provided a fantastic service, we were very pleased with the photos provided (and delivered in a very timely manner!)

It was unfortunate that we could not get all the pictures we wanted but this was due to the strict timings of the venue rather than the photographer whom remained professional and positive throughout!

Would definitely recommend!
