    Truly captured our day1

    Craige is a great guy, very friendly and professional from first meeting to getting our pictures. Our guests thought he was great, and not intrusive at all. We loved getting our pictures and we’ve had some fantastic comments too, I love looking at them!

    Craige Barker Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Kim. Wish we could do it all again, do you think the venue will let us? I loved the food there also.

    Mr and Mrs Gough

    We chose Craige to be our photographer for our wedding after he was recommended to us. Craige listened to what we wanted to get out of the day with the more traditional style photographs. However captured the ‘in the moment’ style we also wanted. He took pictures of moments we may have missed if it wasn’t for Craige......From me (the Bride) getting ready, to James and his son together and then the sunset photos. They were all amazing. Craige understood who we were as a couple (engaging in a pre-shoot with us) to what best aspects of our venue he could use for great photographs. Craige was respectful of the fact this was our special day but made sure no one was missed out on being involved. Then to be able to view some of our initial special ‘snaps’ part way through our day was an added bonus! Craige you were fantastic! Thank you x

    OK it’s making me cry again. Yeh James I can here you I’m a softie :) After lockdown lets have a drink. Even though that could be another year. Whiskeys all round ?

    Amazing photographer!

    Craige has the ability to capture wonderfully special moments without you even knowing he was there. His skill as a photographer and his professional manner made looking back on our wedding day as amazing as the day itself. I have recommended Craige and would do again.

    Wedding photography.

    We had a small intimate wedding and wanted our wedding album to reflect this; Craige worked wonders. Not only did we have a pre wedding shoot which helped me to feel more relaxed in-front of the camera, but Craige himself is genuinely lovely and amazing at making everyone feel at ease.
    Craige takes the time to not only get to know you as a couple but also invests time in researching your venue in order to get the most beautiful photographs on the day. He listens to what you want in relation to photography and delivers above and beyond expectations. We have a lovely wedding album featuring a selection both natural and more staged/ posed traditional photos along with a USB of all images captured. Could not ask for more.
    Great value for money.
    Good turn around time from wedding day to completion of service.

    Craige Barker Photography's reply:

    OMG it was worth dropping the brown envelope through the door now ?

    What lovely words Sam, I still keep talking about you and how much you hate your picture being taken. I then show your pics especially the one with your sister in the mirror and everyone thinks you look stunning. You two are good people. Thanks for letting me be part of your great day.

    Craige Barker

    Craige took some amazing photos in our wedding at The Inn on the Lake. We asked for an informal Snapshot on the day and it’s exactly what we had. I remember being taken from the wedding reception because the light is exactly right NOW for photos amongst the daffodils by the lake. Craige was 100% right!

    Craige Barker Photography's reply:

    You're my hero Catrin thank you so much. I have another wedding at the same venue. It was supposed to be this year but moved to 2021 now. Xx

    Craige was fun, professional and worked so hard to deliver us the best pictures. He really listened to what we wanted and captured the day perfectly. We love looking back at all our pictures, he did a fantastic job and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

    We absolutely love our wedding photos!

    We can’t recommend Craige enough. He captured our special day perfectly. The photos were really high quality and we got lots of ‘in the moment’ shots which gave it that personal touch. All done with a professional and friendly approach.

    Craige Barker Photography's reply:

    What a great day it was. Even Luke seemed like he was enjoying himself in the end. We need to get together so we can meet the kids. xx

    Supurb experience would recccomend 100%

    Punctual, polite and very reasonably priced. We got exactly as we asked for and more as Craige listened to everything we asked for and had some fabulous suggestions himself. He was fun to be around on the day too and very helpful
