    Professional, emotive, unobtrusive brilliant photography

    It was a pleasure working with Paul and Carol for our December wedding. They were incredible, professional and communicated with us regularly throughout the whole process from our first zoom meeting to post-wedding photo advice. The photos themselves are amazing. They capture so much emotion and I keep watching the slideshow on repeat! . We are so grateful to Tansley photo for capturing our special day, it was wonderful to have those incredible memories come flooding back as we looked at the photos and the attention to detail is incredible. The way they’ve managed to capture the mood and the relationships between people and the story of the day is truly awe inspiring and exactly why we chose Paul and Carol to photograph our wedding - thank you for providing us with these wonderful images to remind us of our day. I also personally love the warmth and vibrancy in the photos and the personalities that emerge in each one. It was such a pleasure to work with Paul and Carol and we would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants unique professional emotion-filled photos! Thank you!

    Perfect from Start to Finish.

    Wow, what can I say that will do justice to how good our photos are! It is evident why Paul & Carol are so highly rated as our photos captured the day so perfectly and having them both taking photos let us see so many moments that we wouldn't have seen without them. If you're in any doubt about contacting them then you shouldn't be as they were all around excellent from first contact straight through to the big day. The communication was great and they had such welcoming and calming personalities. A big Thank you from Jason & Robyn!

    Fantastic photographer, helped make our day special

    Cannot recommend Paul highly enough. His style of documentary style photography, his humour and his uncompromising approach to capturing the shots he knows will be great, completely contributed to the success and our enjoyment of the day. From joining us getting ready and helping us relax, to the very end, it was a total pleasure having him as part of our wedding celebration. And the pictures enable us to relive parts of that day every time we view them. Not your false posed pics, but a moment by moment memory of the wonderful day.

    Best choice we made - definitely recommend

    Paul is technically great – but what he really excels at is freeze-framing emotion. My wedding day was the best day of my life and he bottled all the joy and happiness capturing it for us forever. I can’t stop watching our fabulous slide show which works so well with the music he chose for us. It’s been great sharing with our guests as well as all those who couldn’t be with us given the pandemic. I can’t recommend Paul highly enough – this is the one thing you should spend your wedding budget on because you will have it forever.

    Tansley Photography's reply:

    Thank you for the lovely review Jennie. It makes me so happy to capture peoples emotions in images that will last a lifetime. It's what great wedding photography is all about. Loved being there on your special day. So much happiness and love going around.

    Wonderful photographers, put us totally at ease

    Paul and Carol were an absolute dream and one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. The photos are stunning and capture the day perfectly, without us needing to pose every five minutes. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

    Amazing photographs captured unobtrusively!

    Paul and Carol were very professional from the outset. After an initial face to face meeting the rest of our communication was done via email and Paul always responded promptly.
    On our wedding day, Paul and Carol were punctual, well presented and unobtrusive throughout. They certainly worked their magic and we have now been presented with the amazing photographs they took on the day - all of which we love! - Each image conveys emotion in its truest form because Paul and Carol are documentary wedding photographers who capture moments as they happen naturally.

    Effortless and faultless

    Faultless. Absolutely faultless. From beginning to end I cannot express how happy we are with our wedding photos. They are more perfect than I could have ever dreamed of! Paul is truly talented! The communication from beginning to end was also perfect and couldn’t have asked for more. I would 10000% recommend Tansley Photography to anyone and would in awe with how our photos turned out. Again so talented and made us feel very comfortable on the day!

    Tansley Photography's reply:

    :) So happy that I was able to capture your wedding day for you both. After a year of weddings being delayed due to Covid, it was so lovely to simply enjoy a wedding and photograph you and your guests enjoying your wedding.

    Utterly perfect

    My wife and I were lucky enough to have Tansley shoot for our wedding. We honestly could not be happier with the pictures, they really have captured the happiness of the day and everything is completely natural. It was truly worth every penny and we're very lucky that we'll be able to look back on these pictures to remember the day so well.

    The most wonderful wedding photographs - look no further than Tansley Photography!

    We spent a long time researching wedding photographers and we could not have been happier with the photographs produced by Paul and Carol. Everything from the prior communication, quality, their individual styles and their presence on the day was fantastic; their top of the range cameras meant we couldn't even hear the photos being taken, a factor we hadn't previously considered.

    Alongside the candid shots of our guests, we had some couples photographs towards the end of the day when the light was beautiful and the guests were enjoying a drink. These photos are simply stunning and will be treasured. This was the reason we chose Paul and Carol - so much experience and the ability to give direction. We felt at ease and knew there and then that we'd made the right choice!
    Thank you for producing such wonderful photos of our day - we cannot recommend Tansley Photography enough!

    Wonderful Photography.

    We were keen to hire photographers that we would feel comfortable with on our wedding day and to not be forced into endless poses. Having done some research, we knew straight away we wanted to book Paul & Carol and luckily for us they were available for our special day.

    On the day, Paul & Carol were just like a couple of extra guests and blended in seamlessly. At no point did they intrude on the day and they were a pleasure to have at our wedding.

    The final collection of photographs was well received by everyone and it’s comforting to know that we have such great photos to remind us of our very special day. So much happens on your wedding day that it can become somewhat of a blur so it’s hugely important to have superb images to look back at - something Paul & Carol provide.

    Our family members have recommended them to friends already and will continue to do so.

    Thank you for the kind words Ed, we loved capturing your wedding for you both.

    Captured the day perfectly!

    We were lucky enough to have Paul as our photographer for our wedding in Surrey, and he captured the day perfectly, His photos really tell the story of what the day was like and we couldn't have been more pleased with the result. Paul was a fantastic photographer who was really friendly and easy to work with and we couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much!

    "Paul & Carol were, without a doubt, one of the best decisions we made with regards to our wedding suppliers. Their style, unobtrusive and natural, was exactly what we were looking for. The photographs tell the story of our day beautifully, capturing emotions that just can't be staged."
