Perfect photos to remember our day

Jon and Kyle were so easy to work with and slotted into our day perfectly, most of the time not noticing they were there but somehow managing to capture all the special moments! The photos are lovely, thanks so much!

Wedding Day Review

We got married in June 2017 and from the very beginning Jon was very professional in a very relaxed manner. On the big day, we barely noticed Jon as he fitted in amongst our guests getting the loveliest of photos. Our portraits were beautiful and when it came to the group photos, Jon was true to his word that he would make sure they did not go on for too long and he executed that perfectly!!! We loved our final photos and how they came to us in the presentation box. Would highly recommend!

Professional, Polite & Great Video

Jon from JDS had been the photographer at our friends’ wedding and once we saw their video snippet on Instagram and following praise from our friends, we got in touch. Jon has been extremely helpful and responsive throughout the whole process and always sort to make us happy. We felt comfortable on the day and had a few laughs in between; the perfect recipe. We love our video and if you have not yet booked your videographer, would definitely recommend Jon and Kyle.

I cannot recommend Special Day photography enough. Great quality photos, both candid and posed. He really knew how to get the best out of the couple and all of the guests. Personable, high quality bespoke service.

Right from the beginning Jon & Scott were incredibly professional whilst also being extremely accommodating to whatever we requested of them. In the planning stages they helped out wherever they could, and on the day itself they were so helpfu; and were fantastic with the guests - from rounding up the family for group photos to talking to the kids when they didn't want to stand still and pose. They helped create the relaxed fun atmosphere we wanted of the day whilst never getting in the way of proceedings. All of this is important in a wedding photographer but nothing in comparison to the photos/videos themselves. When we received our beautiful box with our usb of photos we poured a glass of wine and watched a slideshow of the day from beginning to end. Every new photo made me gasp and brought a tear to my eye! They really captured all the best moments and showed some beautiful natural photos that we will treasure. My only slight issue is that I cant possibly choose between the photos as to which I should have printed and hung up on the wall... Looking forward to seeing the video now! Thanks Jon & Team for capturing such beautiful memories for us! Angela & James x

I can highly recommend Jon as a most gifted and competent wedding photographer.
He has an endearing and caring personality, is responsible, and possesses a wicked sense of humour - so important for the criteria required for this high pressure role.
He is also technically brilliant and brimming with creative ideas, confirmed by his impressive qualifications and portfolio.
My kind of photographer!

Jon agreed on to take on our wedding with very little notice since our original photographers that we had booked cancelled 6 days before the date.
I have a lot of experience working with photography/photographers and have to say that Jon is very talented and has a great way with weddings. Quite a few of the guests have been very complimentary about the way he conducts himself.
I am looking forward to seeing the rest of his shots from the day as what i have seen so far is looking great!

Huge thank you to Jon for capturing our wedding day. Jon is such a talented photographer that there are pictures he's taken that we weren't even aware he was next to us taking at the time.
The photos are absolutely stunning, Jon has captured our day perfectly. It was like reliving our wedding day all over again when the photos arrived. Jon was fantastic at interacting with our guests when it came to the group shots, and brilliant with our little flower girls. Definitely book Special Day Photography for your wedding if you are looking for unique and beautiful wedding pictures.

I highly recommend Jon as a wedding photographer. The photos he took of our wedding are really beautiful. As well as the more formal group shots, he took a lot of lovely natural shots of our guests socialising and was really good at interacting with people and being unobtrusive. I usually hate having my photo taken, and can't relax in front of the camera, but he managed to take, not just one, but many shots of me that I really like!

The service the company provided was beyond anything we imagined.
Scott was unbelievable, the effort before and after he went through to provide everything was exactly how we wanted, was amazing.
His skill level capturing and editing the video was fantastic, I can't recommend him enough.
Thank you for making the day so special

From start to finish Jon was professional, discreet and an all round great character! Having a "stranger" around on the biggest day of your life did not feel that way at all. He really blended into the celebrations and captured truly beautiful shots of our day. We were also so impressed at the beautiful wooden presentation box that our prints and USB arrived in. Thanks to Jon we have "forever memories" from our Wedding!
