    Fun, relaxed and professional!

    John has been absolutely fantastic, he made the whole experience very relaxed and comfortable. We wanted action/unposed and natural pictures and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to take them! Pictures are absolutely stunning and we have SO many of them! Thank you so much John for everything on the day, you were great!

    Fantastic Photographer!!

    John is a fantastic photographer, and would highly recommend him. We had a smaller wedding this year, and very pleased to be having John photograph our bigger celebrations next year as well.
    He's so enthusiastic and friendly with lots of great ideas. We were completely at ease around him, as were our friends and family. Thanks John, the pictures were amazing!!

    Brilliant photographer!

    John was an absolutely fantastic wedding photographer and we couldn't recommend him more. John knew the venue inside and out so was able to pinpoint all the best locations and shots, which gave us an amazing variety of pictures. Not only that he is really easy to get on and have a laugh with, which made us and the guests really relaxed. The photos were brilliant with a swift turnaround time, and as well as taking beautiful shots of the main wedding party, he got some fantastic candid shots of guests which we absolutely love. Thanks so much John!

    Fantastic potographer

    We had initially planned a large wedding with all the trimmings when the pandemic struck. We decided to go ahead with our wedding on a much smaller scale (because of Covid restrictions) and thought we could probably manage without a photographer. And then someone recommended John Mason Photography. We are so pleased we hired John. He was absolutely brilliant. He made everyone feel at ease. He had fantastic ideas for the photos using different settings we wouldn't have thought of. He was very relaxed about everything and captured our day perfectly. We have amazing photographs ranging from the family and friends groups, to the hilarious fun shots. We couldn't have been happier with John on the day, and our photos are brilliant. We received a huge selection on memory stick including black & white shots. Perfect!

    Absolutely amazing!

    From the moment I met John at a wedding fair I knew he was the one who could capture our magical day! And he did that and so much more!
    From arrival to my mums house in the morning to after our last dance the photos are incredible! He got everyone that we requested plus ones we never thought of!
    He had all the time in the world for us and our guests and we have had so much amazing feedback from the photos! honestly could not recommend him enough!

    Great photographer

    John was the photographer for our wedding in July and he did an amazing job! He was well liked and navigated family and guests well throughout the day, plus the pictures and wedding album look fantastic. Would definitely recommend!

    John is a great photographer!

    Having John as our photographer was the best decision we could have made. He made us feel so comfortable and new our venue so well that the shots were amazing when we got them!

    Very talented and professional

    John is an amazing photographer who really gets to know you and your wedding day needs. We are not the best at the whole posing thing but with John everything came natural to us as he makes you feel relaxed. Our photos are beautiful and we couldn’t ask for anything better if we was to do it all again, hands down we would choose John again. He is brilliant at what he does and we can’t thank him enough for some really great memories that we can always look back on.

    This man is amazing!

    Never before did we think that we could book something as important as a wedding photographer over the telephone without meeting, however once we spoke to John, his charisma, charm and professionalism left it impossible to search any longer. From the very beginning he was amazing, friendly and understanding. Even with our complex family dynamics, my wife’s “gangly arms” and my bald patch, John always made us feel at ease that capturing the shots that WE wanted would be no issue. On the day, John was more than just a photographer. He kept us both laughing and calm whilst also keeping our guests at ease and organised. He kept the photos moving without rushing us and made it his goal to get every possible shot at our beautiful venue, including the first few hours of our evening reception. We can’t thank John enough for being so attentive and reassuring in the preceding weeks and the day itself! After the wedding itself is over, all you have are the memories and the pictures, and what John has captured will forever make us smile. Thank you! Kirby and Luis. X

    Absolutely brilliant!!

    This man “John” is superb! We first met John at my friends wedding where I was best man! So we sort of knew what we were getting/how he works. If we could give more stars we would. John was so professional from start to finish, he makes you feel so relaxed we arent the greatest in front of a camera but we can honestly say there’s no need to worry with John! The images you get from John are great and the fact you pay after the wedding is a nice touch! The day of the wedding John just blended in, but at crucial times would react, we had rain at our wedding but that didn’t stop him, different ideas on the day so we could maximise our range of photos!! I’d say he goes above and beyond! Hard working, who stays until he feels he has the best shots. Great ideas also! If your in two minds to booking John don’t be ,just do it you won’t regret it! What impressed me the most was his passion for the job! He loves it so much! When you meet him you’ll understand! Thanks mate we really loved you being at our wedding!!! The best day of our lives!
    Nick and steen.

    Could not recommend highly enough!

    We first met John 5 years ago when he photographed my friends wedding, we were impressed not only with the photos but how lovely he was on the day. When we got engaged we knew John was who we wanted to capture our day. We met with him and he remembered us straight away! John was fantastic on our day making an effort to capture all of the pictures that we wanted whilst not keeping us from our guests for too long. A number of people commented to us afterwards how great the photographer was!
    The pictures were absolutely amazing and the album so special, definitely something to keep on the coffee table and such a lovely story of our day. We can not recommend John highly enough! Thank you John! Liv & James

    Fabulous day captured

    We totally clicked with John from the moment we met him at Sopwell House.
    We were so happy that when we unfortunately had to bring the wedding forward he was still available.
    So on a gorgeous day on 24th Oct 18 John captured our special day fantastically. We have so many beautiful photos we are still trying to pick our favourites.
    John made everyone feel at ease.
    He stayed until well after the 1st dance getting some candid shots of both our guests and ourselves
    Can't recommend John highly enough.
    If you want a photographer who helps the day go smoothly and is a great laugh look no further than John Mason.

    Simply perfect

    If you are reading this then I know what you are going through. So much to plan it can boggle the mind, especially when it comes to capturing the day.
    After speaking with John from day one we knew we had made the right choice.
    He totally understands everyone is different with their needs and boy is he articulate.
    On the day he was simply amazing. From making my wife calm and keeping her laughing to eliminate nerves, to organising everyone (which isn't easy when guests have had a drink).
    Never intrusive, very respectful and when we saw the photos . . . WOW.
    He certainly has a talent and an eye for the shot.
    5 stars just isn't enough, we'd give him 10 If we could.
    Thank you so much John for everything, you were perfect in every way and we have the memory of our day that we always dreamed of.
    Words just can't describe just how greatful we are and how happy you could share our wedding day with us.
    True professional, top of your game.
    Thank you Mr & Mrs Tofts
    Please check out our day, I'm sure you'll agree
