    Pre Wedding Shoot

    Neil and Sam were great on the day, making us feel comfortable and relaxed. We received our photos quite quickly after having the shoot and all were amazing. Looking forward to our wedding day with them!

    Only way to summarise is to just say WOW. An Amazing photographer and a Wonderful human being

    What can I say?? Utterly Fabulous. From the very beginning Neil and Sam went along with my crazy ideas and the results speak for themselves. We had a bit of luck with the weather but the photographs are amazing in every way. Neil is such a naturally funny bloke who manages to make you feel at ease straight away. I hate having my photo taken but he managed to capture the most wonderful moments in a natural way. Every image sent to me conjures up amazing memories of 2 very special days and that is down to the skill of the person behind the lens. I can't thank you both enough for your time and expertise (and also the fact you had to put up with my extreme lack of time management and chilled outlook on things).
    Utterly wonderful. And a great couple of super friendly people too. Fabulous.

    Wedding photographer

    From the first call I knew Neil was the man for the job. He was very professional and open to ideas. I certainly wasn’t looking for your “bog standard wedding photos”. I wanted fun photos that told a story about our relationship and that’s exactly what we got. I would highly recommend Neil.

    Total natural.... didn't even know he was there

    Felt totally at ease from the start and barely noticed he was there, and I hate my picture being taken. He listened and was great with advice. Most importantly.... the pictures were amazing and capture the day perfectly. Thank you.

    Incredible from start to finish!

    Couldn’t recommend Neil enough! He made us feel comfortable from the moment we met him. He is the ultimate professional and we were over the moon with our photos!
    He even gave us some great advice ahead of our wedding day.

    Amazing amazing amazing

    Neil is absolutely incredible! No job too big for him. His level of customer service is second to none! From our initial phone call to receiving the images it has been a sheer joy. He is always happy to accommodate an idea and location and explore options with you. The quality of the images itself were incredible, honestly cannot fault them at all and I've got a keen eye for detail! Worth every penny and would love to do business with Neil in the future.

    Best Photographer EVER just look at his work, his pictures speak for themselves

    I knew Neil and I knew his work and I wanted him to be my wedding photographer way before I even knew I was getting married. When I finally got engaged it was a no brainier it had to be him. I had seen so many pictures, award winning pictures there was nobody else. From booking Neil to the wedding day we had so many messages to and from on things he’s done, things I wanted etc, he also picked me up many a time through coronavirus when I thought the whole thing might not even happen.

    Morning of the wedding he turns up, fits right in and it’s not like he’s even there I’m trying to make him a part of everything but he’s quite happy snapping away…. Every point of the morning with me and my girls he was so professional in asking if we were happy for him to be there if we were comfortable he’s got such a lovely nature it’s hard not to be comfortable.

    Long story short he was there all day and we barely noticed him but not in a bad way towards him because he was doing his job and he did that in the most amazing way…. He captured moments that you couldn’t plan, you couldn’t stage…. He captured everything special about my day and I will be forever grateful for that.

    Wedding Photographer

    From the minute we met Neil at a wedding fair many years ago we knew that he was the best of the best. From making us feel relaxed at our engagement shoot, to being accomodating with our date changes. On the wedding day Neil made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable and the pictures back are amazing!! Most of the time you didnt even know he was there! Our family said how brilliant he was! Would 100% recommend!!

    Amazing xx

    The morning of my wedding day I was a nervous wreck and the moment Neil arrived straight away Neil put me at complete ease with his presents.
    The morning of my wedding day when Neil was with me and my bridal party getting ready he was literally invisible until needed..very professional!!
    As the rest of the day went on Neil made sure he was there to capture every moment or give advice as and when he thought was necessary to catch the perfect moment on a picture.
    Throughout the whole experience with Neil, every moment was always very professional but also very easy and unknown, he captured pictures of our day what were just so natural and he gave us the best memories to cherish forever
