    We couldn’t have found a better wedding photographer! Chilled, informal, reassuring and totally unflappable- Lu instantly understood the vibe we wanted for our wedding, his photos are stunningly beautiful and we shall treasure them forever!

    Best photographer and the MOST beautiful photographs

    I couldn't recommend Lu enough. He was amazing from start to finish. Such a talented photographer as well as being a really kind.I couldn't believe the amount of incredible shots he took on our wedding day, i didn't even see him in the ceremony, but he got shots of literally every angle it was incredible. We wanted relaxed shots of ourselves and friends and that's exactly what we got, beautiful compositions, shots full of laughter and love, the perfect way to remember our wedding!

    Luis Calow Photographer's reply:

    OMG thank you so much, Is. Both you and Chris were an absolute dream to work with and be with on the day, I'm so happy you found me and fondly I think about that day we met for a pint near St. Pancras!

    I'm sure your little fam is doing beautifully, and I'll totally be asking you for a cake for my wife's bday next year! :)

    Big love,

    Lu xxx

    Just book him!

    We’ve just received our wedding photos and we are in awe, Luis is amazing!! From the first email exchange right through until the wedding day he has been so helpful and wonderful, and immediately understood what we wanted. He kept in contact with us during the inevitable and stressful Covid postponements and we eventually managed to fit in a pre-wedding shoot which I would absolutely recommend. He put us at ease immediately and it was like hanging out with a friend we’d known for years (who just happened to be taking awesome photos!).

    On the day he helped calm my nerves, charmed all of our friends and family and seemingly managed to be in about 100 different places all at once. We’ve loved watching our slideshow, his photos have captured all of the love and the laughter and the joy from our day. We are so unbelievably happy with them. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, we can save you loads of time, book Lu, he’s just the absolute best

    Luis Calow Photographer's reply:

    You two are THE cutest! I can't thank you enough for bringing me into your lives and coming with you and the (LONG) journey we had over this weird ass 2 years. We made actual magic on your wedding day...those photos...

    Big love to you both!

    5 star review for Lu

    From the word go Luis was a joy to work with, giving us all the information and advice that we needed, helping us to think through the shots and the style of shots that we wanted and showing incredible patience with us throughout all the ups and downs of planning a wedding during a pandemic.
    Every time we spoke to Lu he was enthusiastic and completely lovely, which was exactly how he was in person. Lu made us and all of our guests feel totally at ease throughout the whole wedding, and he captured the joy of day so wonderfully. We could not be happier with the photos we now have of our wedding day!

    Luis Calow Photographer's reply:

    Thanks so much Sophie! You and Ol were an absolute dream to work with and get to know, it didn't feel like nearly 2 years! We had such good communication and were totally on the same wavelength from the first email - I think your images prove that in buckets! Big love, guys :)

    Personal, thoughtful service

    Photographs were something we really didn’t want to get wrong, and having seen Luis’s work and witnessed him in action at another wedding, we didn’t consider anyone else.

    He was expert, thoughtful, and went the extra mile. Meeting him before the day also helped us think through some of the shots and issues we wouldn’t have identified on our own. We were overjoyed with the photos we got back which were just stunning. Book him!

    Luis Calow Photographer's reply:

    Thanks so much Eleanor! Enjoyed every second of your day and I think I'm still finding confetti in my camera bag haha.

    Big love to you, Paul and bump!
