Amazing Photographer

Richard is one of those photographers who is there on the day, but almost invisible. Never in the way, but always in the right place to get that perfect shot. From the moment we got in contact with him, we knew he would be amazing, just from some of the questions he asked, and the suggestions he made. By the time of our wedding day he felt more like a friend. The end result was not only delivered amazingly up to a very high standard but also very quickly. Richard and Courtney captured the pure love and fun of the occasion. I can not thank them enough! Especially the special moments which they captured perfectly.
We would have no hesitation at all in recommending him.

amazing service

We booked LUX to do our wedding photography and video and we could not be happier. great communication before the day and so supportive on the day, we didn't feel pushed or pressure to take photos they seemed to just know when we were ready so the day just flowed perfectly. Were still coming down of the amazing day we had and getting the photos was the perfect way to relive it. If you're looking for super supportive photographers who take amazing photos then these are the guys to book.

couldn't be happier

They were great support before the wedding, especially with the test photo shoot as we were both nervous and they helped put us at ease. they fitted in perfectly at our wedding being supportive, guiding us to the different photos needed yet blended in to the background so they didn't take over the day with photos. We were surprised to get 20 photos on the day which helped bridge the gap until we received the full album 3 weeks later. Honestly we couldn't be happier can highly recommend them

Simply the best!

We had the most fantastic wedding day and memories of a lifetime thanks to Richard. Looking back on photos we relive the day all over again, he was super friendly, nothing was any trouble and he stayed for around 9 hours throughout our day. We had a good laugh mainly as we were pulling faces and being daft as we didn’t want all photos to be serious as that’s just not us. Thank you so much for being a massive part of our day, the album we received in a USB gift box has a beautiful presentation with box and USB engraved too which is a lovely touch. I’d highly recommend to anyone looking to book a wedding photographer, Thankyou again Andrew & Leigh

Thank you so much

From the start you were wonderful in listening to my ideas and making sure we sorted times and poses ahead of time. This meant that the day went so smoothly.

My husband and I don't usually like posing for photos, but you made us feel like the centre of attention and all my stage fright went away. We both had so much fun exploring the venue and taking some amazing photos. The teamwork was great, you barely had to speak to each other to know what shots you wanted to get. I keep reliving the day as I look through the photos and I'm sure I will for years to come. Thank you again.

Love our photos

Richard and Courtney photographed our wedding on 17 April this year. They were very kind and professional, we couldn't recommend them enough. The photos were delivered earlier than expected and came in amazing boxes, on top of that they were amazing. We can't thank them enough for the effort they put into these photos.
