    Callie and James, wedding at Trunkwell House

    When we first saw Jack at a wedding fair we could not believe the quality of his work and how bespoke the album's looked. From start to finish Jack has been amazing. He made us both feel comfortable and at ease on our big day and during the months before, it was like having a family friend take our photos on the day! We could not be happier with the products we have received. We definitely made the right choice picking Jack as our photographer. We would recommend him to anyone. Thank you for your hard work. Mr and Mrs Mainwaring.

    Lux Vita Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words, It was a privilege to be part of you and James' special day. We used every available opportunity to take some great photos and the beautiful wedding albums is one of my favourite albums.

    Very fun to work with

    Jack was a fantastic photographer, I'm in love with the photos provided. Some fantastic shots, and some amazing editing.
    He ensured we had a variety of shots with us as a couple, and many shots of our friends and family enjoying the day.
    Communication with Jack has also been perfect, he responds quickly to our messages. He was also so very understanding when we had to move the date back by 4months.
    I would 100% recommend this supplier, they when a pleasure to work with, and ensured that having endless photos taken was fun experiance.

    Lux Vita Photography's reply:

    Thank you Rebecca for your kind words. I had a great time photographing your wedding, especially at such a beautiful location and both you and Frazer are very accommodating to my keen desire to create. Can’t wait for you to see the album. It will be epic.

    Beyond expectations


    we are so happy with our wedding photos. Jack was super efficient on the day to get the shots he had in mind and it was all worth it. Great packages, very high professional standards but what struck us most about Jack is that he is really proud of his work (rightly so), it means it was special to give that part of our big day to someone who was totally on board. My only regret is that I didn't book him from morning preparation till first dance! About the pictures, the one word on family and friends was "stunning". Thanks Jack for making our memories look so perfect.

    Lux Vita Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words, it was a real privilege for me and Oli to be part of you and Alan's special day. Also my first reception on a boat, a very special wedding.

    A Quality, Tailor Made Experience

    I cannot recommend Jack's business highly enough. From the outset he worked with us to make our day very special indeed, planning the photography with our needs in mind and advising us at every step with his vast experience, what were our best options.
    The results were spectacular; beautiful, tasteful photographs which reflected the day perfectly with our individual needs in mind. The fantastic book created after the event showed a modern but unique presentation of the photographs which we requested, and is a treasure which we constantly review after nearly ten years, with much pride and very happy memories.
    Jack has an understanding of these types of events, the planning which is required before the occasion, and the requirements on the day to make the process flow efficiently without interrupting the main focus of the gathering.
    He is a quality photographer and this shows in every individual picture. His expertise enabled us to try different photographs, reflecting our personalities, the occasion, and how we interacted to it, and the results were stunning.
    Photographs are an important reminder of one of the most important occasions in a couples life together, and we were delighted with everything that Jack and his team did to make it all very special for us.

    Lux Vita Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, I still remember the wedding after all these years, not only its wedding for my dear friend also a special wedding with surprises and wonderful entertainment. I am very privileged to be part of you and Alan's special day.
