Best photographer ever!!

Sue was an absolute dream to work with. She was so sweet and very professional. She made some great suggestions to start when we were getting ready on the wedding day and got some great shots of both the preparations and when the guests were arriving. Both during and after the wedding, all of the guests talked about how lovely she was and was able to make everyone feel so much at ease. There were a number of pictures she took where we didn't even realise she was taking pictures there!
All of the pictures came out amazingly, and I was really happy with the amount of pictures she got despite her not being there for the full day. Even before the wedding day, she made sure to put us at ease and make sure we got pictures of everything we'd want and more. I cannot recommend her enough for the amazing value and her outstanding work ethic :)

Outstanding

Sue was just the most amazing, friendly and comfortable person to be around. Everyone was so complimentary on Sue's professionalism and work. Sue from start to finish knew what she was doing and took on a couple of requests from few family members (which made their day) thank you. We have received our wonderful photos of our perfect day! Sue went to all lengths to capture our day together and memories. Sue is amazing and if you have her for your special day, you're in good hands. Thank you Sue

Amazing photographer

Sue was the photographer for our wedding at Kent Life on September 17th 2022. We felt completely at ease with Sue from our first meeting with her. She is so friendly and enthusiastic. We wanted a relaxed approach on our day, and she was amazing with both us and our guests. We love our photos and were overwhelmed at how well Sue captured our day. Would never hesitate to recommend Sue for any special occasion.

Perfect photographer

Sue was very professional, funny and efficient on our wedding day. She tailored a package to suit our needs which was amazing and our guests and venue staff all commented on how brilliant she was.
She was able to take control of a crowd of 100 and took some amazing shots while making everyone comfortable and helped put people (including me) at ease. She also worked miracles when my wedding dress wouldn't behave.
We got the photos given to us on a USB the night of the wedding so we could enjoy them the next day. My sister has taken Sue's number and plans to use her for her wedding in 2025.

A wonderful day made easier with Sue

Sue was amazing! The photos she took were amazing. There were photos in the collection that we didn鈥檛 even know she had taken and those we did know about, Sue made everyone feel comfortable. We don't really like our photos taken but we really didn鈥檛 care- Sue made it fun. In the run up to our wedding, there were things we were unsure of but Sue imparted her knowledge and straight away the anxiety was lifted. On the day, Sue helped me to get my dress on. She had just the right tools for the job - how鈥檚 that for going above and beyond. We loved her and her work and our guests felt the same. Thank you so much Sue!

The lady that thinks of everything

I met Sue at a wedding fair and instantly felt at ease. I asked lots of questions but nothing was too much trouble. Our wedding was just over year out and Sue suggested I put a Pinterest board together of shots I wanted and to highlight what would be the must haves. I did this and once we had our meeting a month before the wedding I shared it with her. The morning of the wedding Sue was amazing, taking shots of the bridal prep and other shots I didn鈥檛 know I wanted or needed. Keeping me calm, getting every requested special moment before our wedding. Sue has pins and sorted the groomsmens wonky flowers out, made sure my dad was ok, kept the flower girls chatting.
When I tell you she thinks of everything she really does. She made the group shots fun, she kept a tough crazy crowd in place and flowing and captured every shot we wanted. We had sneak peek shot sent to us and we鈥檙e able to see our photos within 7 days. We were presented with a beautiful usb stick with all our shots. Sue is fabulous and we could not recommend her enough.

Absolutely amazing

Well we used Sue for both our ceremony in 2021 and our wedding in 2022 as we had to split it due to COVID. She was absolutely amazing during this stressful time along with on both days. Nothing was too much for her from taking photos to helping with my dress. Was recommended by a friend and we always recommend Sue to any engaged couples. Bonus the photos was stunningly beautiful and such a reasonable price for everything.
