Amazing day

Had such a lovely experience with Ian. We had our wedding during lockdown and looking at the photos you couldn't even tell. He captured all the special moments of our day and we got all the photos we wanted. Would definitely recommend

Simply the best!

We honestly cannot recommend Ian enough. As someone who is far from photogenic, he made me feel so relaxed on my big day and I honestly didn’t even know he was there for the majority of the day which made for some truly beautiful candid shots.

His documentary style was exactly what we were looking for and I can honestly say that we love every single photograph that he took.

Great value for money and extremely flexible - overall an absolutely fantastic service all around.
