Outstanding

Terry was a delight the whole way through. Guiding us through the process and never leaving us in the dark about anything. He captured amazing photos that we will treasure for a lifetime and caught moments we didn’t even see! Not only does he take beautiful photos but he captures the emotion so well in every single one. The whole day was made so much easier knowing we were in safe hands and the photos are first class. I would recommend Terry in a heart beat.

Exceptional Photographer with a Keen Eye, Professionalism, and Patience

I wholeheartedly recommend Terry Lucas photography to anyone in search of a photographer who excels in capturing beautiful moments, conducts himself with professionalism, and exhibits unmatched patience. From the initial consultation to the final delivery of the photos, every aspect of the process was handled with the utmost care and attention. The communication was clear and timely, making the entire experience smooth and enjoyable. He never rushed the process, ensuring that each shot was perfect and that we felt comfortable and confident in front of the camera. The photos captured by Terry were nothing short of stunning. His ability to find the perfect angles, play with light, and capture the essence of the moment is truly remarkable.

Professional

Terry was professional throughout and was readily available for any questions before and during our wedding day. Terry took our lead but also gave useful tips for the day. We were very happy with our photographs and are having difficulty on deciding what ones to choose for an album!

Absolutely fantastic!

Terry was a photographer I had been chasing for a while and due to unforseen circumstances with booking our wedding the first time it didn't happen.
When we finally got booked up we were so pleased Terry was free because our photos are just fabulous.
I wanted mostly natural with some staged photos, and we are very pleased with thd outcome.
Terry has a very unique way of knowing when to take a pictures at just the right time ensuring the moment is capured.

I can't recommend him enough, a real professional who is very good at his job!

Amazing and Beautiful!

We spent a lot of time looking for the right photographer to capture our wedding and as soon as we saw Terry’s style we knew it was the one to go for. Communication with Terry was very prompt to any questions or replies we had. Terry was very professional and captured the most beautiful photos we could have hoped for especially our formal photos which were very natural and meant a lot to us both. We would not hesitate to recommend Terry at all. We can’t wait to see all the beautiful photos on social media of other weddings that are captured in the future. Thank you for capturing our special day.

Please choose Terry

We absolutely cannot recommend Terry highly enough! He really was fantastic. We asked Terry to capture our day at quite short notice due to being let down. Terry was so understanding and could not do enough to help us. Terry is extremely professional and captured parts of our day that were just so natural. We would not hesitate to recommend Terry at all. Thank you for capturing such special moments!

Terry was calm and flexible on our Wedding day and we received some wonderful photos to treasure. No ask was too big and he even agreed to stay on and shoot some more photos! A pleasure to deal with and would not hesitate in recommending him.

Incredibly understanding photographer

Terry photographed our wedding in September 2022 and despite us both being incredibly unphotogenic people he made us feel comfortable. He was only there for a couple of hours but in that time he captured great photos and understood exactly what we wanted during that time. Thank you Terry for capturing our day so beautifully.

May 7th Pagan Wedding.

From start to finish, the process with Terry was seamless and brilliantly executed. We felt listened to, and involved in the decision making process as to what we would like to happen. Nothing was too much trouble, and our many questions were answered in a manner which left no doubt. On the day, Terry was punctual, and worked tirelessly and worked in a manner which made everyone feel at ease, yet also in an unobtrusive way to capture so many wonderful shots one hadn't been aware - until one saw them in the gallery - had been obtained. Seeing these pictures which captured the whole essence of the day, and many magical moments, along with the emotions felt by all, was truly remarkable and has really highlighted his skills as a brilliant Photographer. We were able to make an excellent choice for the beautiful albums we selected and are now in a position to look back on these with great happiness. We cannot thank him enough or praise him for his ability to capture our special day in the manner he did.
