Mr and Mrs Gale

As fellow photographers we were apprehensive about trying to find a photographer for our own wedding who could provide the service and product required. Suzi simply ticked all the boxes we required and we are more than happy with everything.

Suzie is the calming influence you need on what can be a hectic day !

I’m so pleased I booked Suzie as our wedding photographer . She has a calming , unflustered nature and really put me at ease on my wedding day . In the run up to the wedding , she kept in touch with phone calls and drew up a plan well in advance for all our planned photos . She researched the venue before hand and knew exactly where to get the best photo opportunities. Lots of my guests commented on her lovely personality and she really caught the fun essence of our day with lots of natural happy photos rather than over posed , “wooden” ones . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a wedding photographer , we were delighted with our wedding photos , wonderful memories to treasure for a long time

Absolutely wonderful!

We were delighted with the photos Suzie took at our wedding. She managed to capture the day perfectly and has provided us with the most precious memories. From the first moment of contact she was extremely friendly, easy going and full of humour. We felt totally relaxed with her and she made the photography a lot of fun. She took so many photos on the day, which even allowed us to see things we had missed and stayed a lot longer than she had to. Her turn around time of the photos was outstanding, sending us some beautiful shots the very next day. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Suzie as a wedding photographer, she was amazing!

Suzie is fantastic!

Suzie really went on a journey with us. We had to reschedule our wedding three times! Yet, Suzie was extremely understanding and flexible. She has a wonderful sense of humour, and had no issues putting smiles on our faces throughout the process and the day itself. It really was a joy to have her, and I'm over the moon about the quality of the photos and the quick turnaround. She was fantastic at capturing so many hilarious and moving moments. Her diligence, commitment, and creativity were so integral in making our day feel super special. It wouldn't have been the same without her. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Outstanding photographer

Suize was fantastic from first consultation and beyond. Always at the end of a message with any questions. On our day she acted above and beyond, snapping any photos we asked despite all the pre planning. She stayed beyond her time (which we don't encourage it's a very long day!) But she wanted to give us the most amazing memories and she did just that! Everyone was complimentary of Suzie and how professional she was during our wedding day and how wonderful the photos have been. We honestly couldn't recommend her enough for any future couples.

Best Energy Photographer

Suzie was great with us from the moment we first met, she was super friendly, super organised and brought such a wonderful energy to our day! She was welcome to suggestions we had and creative with her own ideas and worked fantastic during the day! Suzie exceeded our expectations, she was lovely to be around and had a buzz of energy which really added to our special day! She was very responsive, easy to communicate with and nothing was too much trouble! Would highly recommend :)

A photographer to put you at ease

Suzie was a delight from the first contact email. As a second, shall we say later in life, marriage we were not wanting a full on wedding portrayal. Suzie listened to everything we said and tailored our photographs accordingly. She was attentive and considerate and captured the day perfectly. We and our guests were thrilled with the photos she produced. We didn't have to wait long to see the end results and were overjoyed by the thoughtfulness that went in to creating a wonderful memory of our special day.

Wonderful person and Photographer

Suzie was an absolute wonder to hire! I hired her as a surprise for my best friend's engagement (which they fell in love with the photos btw!). She was really accommodating, chatty and friendly! The photos were stunning, brilliant resolution and just lovely

A genuinely lovely woman

Suzie was amazing on our day, she made us feel so at ease and was so encouraging when taking our photos. She was so kind, friendly and sociable with our guests, was responsive to the style of photos we wanted as well as encouraging us to leave our comfort zone a bit, making great creative suggestions. We would not hesitate to recommend Suzie.

Great service!

Suzy made a lot of effort to get to know the venue before our date, as well as guests, and came up with some very creative ideas on how/where to take the best shots on the day. She was also extremely flexible and stayed all day and night so she could get some of our night time outdoor sparkler shots and dance floor too! I expect Suzy was exhausted running around the whole place for so many hours, but she offers such a brilliant service and amazing, professional and creative photography. We would not hesitate to recommend Suzy to others for their wedding day! Or any other special occasion to be honest. Great service, excellent photos, easy to work with, professional, and well priced too.

Caught the emotion of our day perfectly

We couldn’t be happier with our photos from Suzie, from the start she has been
approachable, professional and really understood our desire for a romantic natural feel to the photos.

At our pre-wedding shoot, she managed to get us to relax in front of the camera, capturing some lovely shots, while exploring photograph ideas around our small Cotswold village.

On our wedding day, despite being the hottest and sunniest day of the year, Suzie’s relaxed approach, kept us all chilled and captured both some gorgeous traditional group photos and more natural images that really captured the feel and emotion of our wedding day.
We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to photograph our special day

Simply amazing !!!

From the moment we booked Suzanne, she was constantly in touch with us, at the end of the phone, email, text, she wanted to meet with us shortly after booking, we had an engagement shoot where she imparted sone invaluable hints and tips on posing on the big day, this really helped because on the big day we felt like we had known her forever!
It’s imperative you feel comfortable with your photographer for those wedding pics, and we certainly did. Suzanne is very experienced in photography, and people! She effortlessly arranged the family into groups for group photos. Our guests commented on how long she was there and how much she worked, she was with me at the hairdressers at 9.30, she stayed until almost midnight at the wedding, we’ve had so many people asking about the photos as she took so many of the guests!
She really is fabulous, if you need a photographer for your big day, you need suzie!! We are so happy with the final photos, thank you so much suzie for being a part of our day and capturing it to perfection.
