    A really professional and friendly service

    I hadn't quite realised how important a photographer is; I was slightly naïve. They are your eyes for the day and capture all the little things you miss on what is a really busy day. Stuart was FANTASTIC - he was relaxed and easy to work with and captured all the little moments. You need to chose a photographer you are comfortable around and who you trust. I can say with confidence that Stuart was the right choice for us and would highly recommend to family and friends.

    The perfect photographer for our Wedding!

    Stuart was the perfect photographer for us.
    His friendly, open and relatable personality meant that it was so easy to work with him at every stage of our wedding. He genuinely cared about our wedding and wanted to add to the spectacle of the day.
    We had lots of comments from our guests about how good and friendly he was as he buzzed around and got the pictures we wanted.
    The finished product that we got from Stuart was better than we expected and extremely prompt.

    Right man for the job.

    From our very first zoom call with Stuart we immediately felt at ease and comfortable that he understood what we were looking for. The contact from him was superb. He listened to what we were looking for, gave excellent suggestions on locations and types of photos. Everybody throughout the day commented on what a nice guy he was (not bossy or pushy). He’s got some fabulous photos of everything throughout the day. From getting ready, walking to the venue, the wedding, breakfast and evening party. We’re over the moon with the pictures, he’s got photos of all the guests looking naturally happy. He was brilliant. We’d definitely recommend him to anybody. Thanks for a super job!

    Fab wedding photographer!

    From meeting Stu at a wedding fair up to getting our final images, our experience with Stu was top notch.
    Both myself and my husband were a little nervous about wedding photographs as we both dislike having our photo taken and did not want them to appear staged. Stu made us feel relaxed and kept in touch throughout the planning stage to find out exactly what we wanted.
    On the day, he made everyone feel at ease and mingled in with the guests, snapping the best images.
    We could not be happier with the result, they are wonderful and I could not believe how quickly Stu edited and for the images back to us!
    If you’re looking for someone who is going to enhance your day and capture amazing memories - Stu is your man!

    Made the day!!!

    Stuart made us & our family feel comfortable.
    He was funny and kind. For those that didn’t like having a photo taken, you wouldn’t know he was even there.
    Stuart captured the day perfectly, with all the moments and reactions you don’t want to forget.
    He was extremely quick in delivering all the images from the day, and was so helpful with albums etc.
    On a wedding day you want people around you who you can trust and for this and a million other reasons I couldn't recommend him enough!!

    Outstanding Photographer

    We cannot recommend Stu enough as a wedding photographer, Stu listened to our suggestions and gave great insight into what would look good and not great in our photographs. Stu was very accommodating as we had a lot of request on the day and we have a very large family to coordinate. Stu was exceptional with the younger members of the family capturing very natural photographs. The end product that Stu gave us was amazing, we had so many Photographs and a video at such high quality and we have been able to share all of this with our family as Stu gave us the electronic copy.

    Exactly what a bride needs!

    I met Stu at a wedding fair and was instantly impressed with his approach. He was very easy to talk to on what I wanted from our wedding pics and the relaxed, informal approach I wanted to take. I really don't like my picture being taken, but Stu really listened & understood. On a hectic day he was exactly what we needed. We have some great pics of our day, our family & close friends all capturing everyone's personalities. We have really good memories of the day and the pics only add to all our brilliant moments.
    Highly recommend Stu to capture any event. 10 out of 10 service from the initial meeting, pre wedding prep & follow up from the day.
