John was nothing but amazing for our wedding photographer! We would highly recommend anyone looking for a photographer to choose John.
As a couple who hate having photos taken, John made us feel so relaxed right from our first conversation and throughout our whole wedding day. He was always on hand to answer any questions we had and made us feel at ease on the day.
All our guest have complimented John as a photographer and said how easily he blended into our day!
We are so happy we chose John as our wedding photographer and the pictures are amazing. More than we could have ever wished for!

Thank you so much John for capturing our day so perfectly.

Simply the best photographer you could choose for your wedding day!

Our day was made perfect because of John being our photographer.

As soon as we had our first phone conversation with John we absolutely knew that he was the photographer for us. John spent time getting to know us and our journey so far, he asked questions to determine the style of wedding we desired. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this industry and confidently led the conversation. John provided us with a range of options and packages based on our conversations - he made us feel that no question was to silly. John provided sound advise, excellent communication and was always contactable.

The experience and confidence that John brings to the table is above and beyond. By getting to know us John knew the photos we would like and just did it! This meant that all we needed to do was enjoy the day!! In the presence of John we both felt 100% relaxed and comfortable. It simply felt like John was just another guest at the wedding, he blended and fitted in so well.

We could not be happier with our choice of photographer - in fact John was more than this to us , he supported to lead the day ensuring it all went to plan, supported the organisation of the other suppliers at the venue and by the end of the day felt like part of the family!

We could not recommend him enough! Thank you John for being you!

Beyond my expectations

John was our photographer on our wedding and since the day we spoke on the phone while booking him, it just felt right. He was so helpful, I had problems with the wedding venue address and John was constantly on the phone. He made sure I had the right address and really helped me calmed down. The pictures were so beautiful and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend lockyear photography and you would not regret it. Amazing service

The Best Photographer who was more like a guest at our wedding

If we could give John more than 5 stars we would give him a million!!!!!

We were recommended by a family member and when I first contacted John about availability for our wedding, I was instantly drawn to how friendly, understanding and confident he was that we would get the pictures we wanted.

In the lead up to our wedding, John was always in touch and there at the end of the phone whenever I messaged. Sometimes I thought he was more excited than me by expressing how excited he was which just made me feel so happy we had chosen him.

On the day, John fitted in like one of the guests. Along with his 2nd photographer, Laura who was so lovely! All the guests commented on how great he was too.

We didn't want to have many posed photos and spend forever taking pictures and being away from the other wedding guests and John timed the pictures just great, to allow us back to the guests to enjoy more time with them.

John, you truly went above and beyond on the day and also afterwards! We are blown away by our pictures and truly love every single one. We will cherish them forever! Thank you so much!
