The perfect person to capture the day!

Russ is amazing!

I came across his services using Hitched and I couldn't be happier with the service he provided. He was attentive to every aspect of the day. He was very personable, friendly, helpful, and honestly felt like he was another friend attending the wedding. He fit in so nicely to the day, blended into the background to take the best candid pictures and also directed so professionally and appropriately when the group photos were ready to be taken.

As much as we hired Russ to be the photographer, he was just so helpful in every aspect. I'd forget my bouquet, he'd run and get it. I needed wipes for my daughter, he'd grab them. If I didn't know what time we were cutting the cake, he'd check. He went above and beyond his responsibilities and he did everything with the biggest smile on his face. He made the whole day run smoothly.

Not only that, and the reason for hiring, the pictures are better than we ever could have imagined. He captured so much emotion and love! I have spent a vast amount of time just sitting and staring at them since the moment he sent them (which he did super fast!).

I really couldn't recommend Russ enough!

Thank you for helping us have the most magical day!

I loved it!

Absolutely loved the wedding photos taken by Russ. They were natural and he managed to capture some amazing candid images which we were extremely impressed with. Most of the time, we didn’t even know he was there! Russ is also a lovely guy (very funny), super engaged with the ‘project’ from the beginning and the guests loved him! Thanks for everything Russ!!

Well, what can we say about Russ.

On meeting him, we soon realised he was the right choice for us!
Russ accommodated the most precious request of secretly following my wife to the cemetery in her wedding car so she could see her mum on our special day & capture that forever (all kept a secret from her). Without question this wasn't an issue, for that we are eternally greatful.

Russ 'captured our day' and the most special moments, something we will treasure forever!

All of our guests have and still comment on how great Russ was throughout the day, very friendly and patient even when I forgot to compile the photo list for him!

Thank you Russ! The tasters we have received are so very special, especially the shot of our precious Mias ashes (our late dog) which we knew nothing about until we got them back!!
Thank you again

I can’t thank you enough for being our photographer and taking all the pics so we can relive our day through your pictures.

Was great to have some alone time with Laura when you took us to have some pictures made.

Guided us with expertise and humor

From the prep beforehand and throughout the actual day Russ was professional and guided us with expertise and humor.

The photos are more than I could have imagined and gave me the insight into the arrivals and prep that I had been unable to experience on the day.

I have laughed and cried my way through the slideshow of all photos and am looking forward to reliving the best day of my life over and over again.

I want to write this recommendation on behalf of my family

I would recommend Russ for his willingness to get to know us, but not only us our family too.

Through his work you can tell from the moment you got talking the beautiful moments he captures are through knowing you, every woman’s dream is to have a photo tell a powerful story a meaningful one, he was very sympathetic about a loss of a very close family member and was eager to capture the little things we did on our wedding day for this passed family member.

Basically being truthfully honest just wanted to give us the most creative and beautiful service. He was patient, a great listener and also gave me and my family great advice. I would recommend him to anybody.

Thank you Russ.

It means a lot to us that our day was important to you as well as us.

Massive thank you again from myself and Lewis

We honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day! You put us at ease from the moment we had our first engagement shoot with you - constantly making us laugh, it felt like we'd known you forever! You went above and beyond despite everything that happened and for that, we'll forever be grateful.

The photos are stunning and you listened to exactly what we were looking for!

Thanks again Russ

What a guy.

If your looking for a well priced, genuine and talented photographer who works completely around your needs and preferences, book Russ. Not only did he do a brilliant job of mixing in well with our guests and not stepping on toes when capturing moments, he also got on really well with our guests. More importantly, he took my specific requests during the bridezilla phase all in good humour and I would highly highly recommend him.

Russ is genuinely the most amazing photographer ot work with.....

We were quite specific in our requirements as we both don't like lots of photos. Russ made it extra special with lots of natural shots that we both agree look amazing. Even out guests commented on how amazing the photographer was and how he made them feel really comfortable.

From start to finish he made our day so special and we would highly recommend him 🙂 x

You will spend hours every day looking back at the amazing pictures!

Russ was the first person i thought of to capture our wedding. I've had the pleasure of knowing him for years and having shots done by him previously and he did not disappoint for our wedding, so professional, friendly and captures the most beautiful timeline of the day. I guarantee you will spend hours every day looking back at the amazing pictures!

Honestly couldn't be happier!

Russ was the first person we considered when choosing a photographer and honestly couldn't be happier, he was incredibly professional throughout the big day, taking control without being overbearing, putting everyone at ease and ultimately taking some amazing photographs, we couldn't recommend him highly enough.
