no further searching needed!

our search for a wedding photographer stopped when we came across Sussex and Kent photography. They were one of the only hassle free photographers we could find who actually delivered on the quality and the effort. The whole experience was stress free and easy. Stunning Pictures. Professional and lovely gent. Fast turnaround. Would recommend and use over and over again. SIMPLE.

Our wedding photography

We found Phil at Sussex & Kent Photography through Hitched. We're SO glad we did. We couldn't have picked a better photographer to document our wedding day.

The photographs themselves are just beautiful, his service was fantastic and the entire process was uncomplicated. Phil has a natural talent and is very knowledgeable.

I would trust him all over again and couldn't be happier with our choice of photographer or the pictures that he produced.

Awesome Photography!

Sussex & Kent Photography...Amazing! Well priced, well organised and they just know what they're doing. All of our group shots were organised without a worry, our couples session on the day was magical and they really did capture those finer details like they promise, some things I don't even remember doing like some floral decor and the little favours on the tables and I feel so lucky that these were all photographed because the little things do often get overlooked! I wouldn't hesitate to book with them again and will be buying a gift voucher soon for my friends anniversary! Thank you for everything. Mrs Harres xXx

Highly recommend

Sussex & Kent Photography were recommended to us by our venue as one of their trusted suppliers. I was pleasantly surprised by the very reasonable pricing. The level of service was just amazing, we felt like V.I.Ps Our pictures from the day are so perfect. We look at them almost every day before we go to bed.

They were so lovely to work with, so trustworthy and I couldn't praise the service enough. I'll certainly be using them again for any future occasions without a doubt.

Over the moon

We booked Sussex & Kent Photography after our videographer reccomended them as we were struggling to find anyone we liked. We worked with Phil who was our photographer. Phil was really great to work with, he was very relaxed and nothing ever felt rushed or awkward. My wife and I hate having our photos taken but Phil made us feel comfertable from our first meeting and we felt really relaxed when we had our engagement session with him. My wife and I have since suggested Sussex & Kent photography to our family and friends, one of which who has now also used him and she is as happy as us. I would trust Sussex & Kent Photography over and over again, the photos we have are just stunning and everyone who comes into our home comments on the quality of them. We're over the moon.

Friendly. Approachable. Trusted.

I've used Sussex & Kent Photography twice now. Once for a family lifestyle session on the beach and once for my wedding last year. My wife and I had never had a photoshoot before, so we did a lot of research before booking. My work friend recommended Phil from Sussex & Kent Photography and he was very approachable and answered lots of apprehensions we had about having our first photoshoot.

We went back and forth with messaging Phil as we decided a couple of times to change our location and he was really professional and calm about changing everything for us. We were so happy with our first experience with Phil so much that we decided to book him ahead of time for our wedding, pretty much right after we set our date. Again, the customer service was top notch and everything was smooth and easy. On the day he was really good with all of our guests, especially with the chaos our little one was causing! Everyone commented on how lovely he was.

We got a sneak peek at our pictures ahead of time and we fell in love right away. My wife and I would urge you to book in with Phil, especially with how reasonably priced he is! Thank you Phil for your amazing service yet again.

The Roberts Family.

Review of a photographer by a photographer!

I spent weeks looking at prospective wedding photographers before choosing Sussex & Kent Photography; as I am a photographer myself (although I do not do weddings). Finding someone that you trust to photograph your wedding is a scary thing, especially when you take photos for a living yourself! After meeting with Phil I knew he would be perfect for mine and my wife's big day. He was everything I could want in my wedding photographer, he was knowledgeable, engaging, calm, friendly and had all of the right kit.

I take my hat off to Phil as it's not often another photographer seriously impresses me with their work to the point where I take a lot of inspiration from him.

Phil, thank you for everything my friend. A true gent and highly skilled photographer. You have made my wife and I very happy.

Simply, Perfect.

Wow. Sussex & Kent Photography what can I say. Just 100% quality and perfection. From start to finish everything was a breeze. The simplest part of the whole wedding planning! You absolutely delivered everything we were hoping for and more. Our pictures are stunning and we couldn't be happier. Thank you for everything, from helping us decide which package to go for, to the style of editing and for just getting everything we wanted on the day. We honestly couldn't recommend highly enough.

Top Quality Photography

Exceptional quality and work from Sussex & Kent Photography. You get so much included in the packages. Phil went to visit our venue and we went along with him. We spoke about some ideas we had for some particular pictures that we wanted taken. He worked alongside our videographer who actually recommended Phil to us. They worked really well together and communication was great. He captured every moment we wanted, from getting ready until the evening party and everything in between. We cannot thank him enough !

Sussex & Kent Photography

Phil was so friendly and easy going, we called him for a chat over the phone and felt no obligation at all to go with him, everything was very unpressurised and simple. We decided to go with Phil the day that we spoke to him as we were blown away with his pictures and thought he would probably start to get very booked up ahead of the wedding season.
On the day he was prepared and knew all of our timings for our ceremony. Everyone was very at ease with him mingling around getting the pictures we had asked for. We had our couples shoot after our ceremony and it was just so much fun. I wish we could do it all over again.

Phil got our SUPERB pictures back to us within a few weeks and we can't stop looking at them! We chose to have them printed through his company as it was so simple to get everything sorted with him.
