    Amazing photography & videography!

    We were blessed to have been given Paul and Louis for our wedding photography and videography.
    Paul quickly settled my nerves when he arrived with his warm, calming personality and great humour. At the end of the day he honestly just felt like part of the bridal party! And we were left with the most beautiful photos of our special day which we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
    Louis was absolutely fantastic. We are so over the moon with all of our wedding videos - we were speechless watching them for the first time! He managed to capture the day perfectly. It’s so amazing to see and relive the emotions of the day again and again.
    Another person to thank is Jason. His quick responses put our minds at ease and nothing was too much trouble for him.
    Paul and Louis were the perfect duo to our day and we are so happy to have had them be a part of our wedding. I can’t recommend them both enough. Thanks guys!

    Just Perfect!

    When looking for our photographer we wanted a relaxed style with some documentary style photos and from the moment our photographer arrived we were put at ease. Paul was friendly and bubbly and took the most perfect shots!

    We were lucky enough to win the runner up prize of money off the Platinum Package and even full price this would be more than worth every penny!

    Paul was brilliant at capturing little things we hadn’t even noticed ourselves and suggested poses/ locations we didn’t know about at the venue.

    We received the photos back quickly (in both colour and black and white) and there is such an amazing selection! So much so we had them all printed and put into an album!

    We asked for an even split or family photos (not more of on side than the other) and this was achieved perfectly.

    Everyone who has seen photos has complemented them and we will definitely recommend The Kensington Photographer to family & friends!

    Thank you Paul & The Kensington Photographer team!

    Absolutely fantastic!

    May 17th 2022, the biggest and best day of my life marrying my best friend. I came across The Kensington Photographer on Instagram from where a video call was set up so we could find out exactly how things work and ask any questions we had. We decided to go for it and honestly it was the best decision. We had constant contact with the company to work out the details for the day and even had a quick run through of events the day before just to put us at ease. On the day we had a gentleman called Mick from the company and he was absolutely fantastic! He made it so much fun and was very experienced which shows in the photos. We are so pleased with the service we received and would recommend them to anyone, photos are such an important part of a wedding and we’re so glad we entrusted this to this brilliant company.

    The best photographer!!

    We used Mick from The Kensington Photographer for our wedding photography back in May and was the best decision we made for our wedding!

    Mick was so professional, capturing all the finer details and larger details of our special day. The company were in contact with us before our day, helping us to organise times, as well as allowing us to choose particular shots to make it unique to us and afterwards providing us a gallery once we came home from our honeymoon to relive the day all over again!

    Within the package, we was able to print 150 photos and these were ones we chose, as well giving us a USB stick of all the images taken and edited. It was the most difficult decision of choosing 150 when we really could have chosen them all!!! The presentation box was beautiful for us to store our photos in on our coffee table.

    We could not have asked a better photographer and company to help us capture our special day!! Thank you so much!

    Love Mr & Mrs Stewart

    Phenomenal photos and photographer

    Our photographer (James) was incredible. He was well prepared with all of the notes from the forms we had filled in and got all of the shots we has hoped for and plenty more! He also made all of our guests feel at ease and captured some amazing candids as well as the posed photos.
    The online gallery we received was beyond our expectations, over 600 images in colour and black and white. Narrowing it down to 150 printed was difficult but it is a lovely touch to get a memory stick with all of the photos on so we can print more another time.
    All in all, I cannot recommend The Kensington Photographer enough for customer service, quality of the photographer and end product!

    Amazing wedding photos!

    I will recommend the Kensington Photographer to everyone!

    The communication from Jason was great! Always on hand to answer any questions and always put me at ease.

    Our photographer for the day was Arnie. He was the best! He was so patient, kind and funny. I didn't really give much direction to what photo's I wanted, as I was one of those brides that just had no idea! But he went with it and the photo's we received are stunning and we've had so many compliments! Thank you so much, Arnie!

    We received all photos (colour and black & white) just 2 weeks after the wedding day and the photo's we ordered came in a beautiful presentation box, complete with prints and a USB!

    Thank you Kensington Photographer so much!

    Perfect from start to finish!

    I can't even begin to describe how great the guys at The Kensington Photographer have been for us! From the moment we booked with them, they were friendly, professional and always available to answer any queries. Our wedding was postponed and thankfully they were available on our new date, and were more than understanding and accommodating.
    Our photos from our wedding day are more than we could have dreamed of, and they perfectly captured the love we felt on the day. I would recommend them to everyone and everyone who is looking for a photographer, and I am so glad we booked them for our special day!

    Perfectly captured

    We won a £500 voucher towards our photography, which I really did not believe. Honestly I emailed and asked if it was legit that I’d actually won and they called me to reassure me.
    As like a lot of people we had to postpone but this was not an issue for them at all- they were super flexible, which made it much less stressful.
    We had Mick on our day and he was as brilliant. Worked with everyone to get the most amazing photos. He loved the venue just as much as us too!
    Mick literally blended into the day and captured some in the moment photos which are memories that will last a lifetime.

    The photos came back so quickly as well, which was fantastic.
    I would absolutely recommend them and if anyone, like us, wins a competition with this company than please be rest assured!
    Thank you so much for our beautiful photos that we will cherish forever.

    Amazing and fantastic

    The work they did for us on our wedding day was just outstanding. We aren't an overly confident couple in front of the camera but these guys helped us feel relaxed and confident in front of the camera. They captured our day perfectly and we will be forever grateful!

    110% recommend - amazing!

    The only word I can use to describe Mick was AMAZING. My husbands hated having his photographer taken & was dreading our wedding photos but Mick made us feel so comfortable. My husband has a mustang which he is obsessed with & Mick got the car involved with our photos… husband was very happy about this. We are so excited to get our photos back!

    Didn’t turn up

    So, we won a voucher at the start of 2021 for £500 off our wedding photography - I had a look through the portfolios and loved the style of the photos and decided to go ahead.

    Booking was easy and Jason was very friendly and helpful. The planning stages were simple too, they provide you with a detailed form to write out what shots you’re after and the timings of the day etc to ensure they capture everything you want. They also require you to bring a group shots list and nominate someone to help with arranging the group shots which is very good too and just helps with organisation.

    We unfortunately had to change our venue and subsequently the date of our wedding due to covid -19. I noticed Jason, paid an administration charge of £90 to move the date and completed the documents as described above with our new venue details and timings. I confirmed we’d pay the remaining balance less the deposit And admin fee on the day in cash.

    The day came, and I was expecting a photographer to arrive at 11 for the bridal prep. It got to 11:30 and no one had arrived. I started to worry and called Jason who said he would find out what was going on. Jason called me back just before 12 (on our wedding day) to confirm that there had been a mistake and they had our original date and venue booked in and therefore were not aware that the wedding was today. I explained that I’d paid the admin fee to move the date and had sent across the new details via email, I double checked and I had done all of this. Jason apologised and said he could get someone there but it would take a while as they were in London and us in Gloucestershire. The ceremony started at 13:30 and it was doubtful we’d have the photographer there for that. Meaning we’d miss the vital parts.

    Luckily, I had booked another supplier for videography and there were two people that attended. One of them luckily was a photographer who had packed her cameras not expecting to use them. She stepped in last minute and was able to secure some of the bridal prep and save our day.

    Jason apologised and refunded our money however being honest, if it wasn’t for our other supplier our day would have been ruined. The day is just that, and lasts for 24 hours - photos are what you’re left with and last forever. They’re snapshots of the memories and are what allows you to relive your day. We nearly didn’t have this and I can’t imagine how devastating that would have been. I’ve been blocked from commenting on their Facebook and they do not allow reviews on Facebook. My advice would be if you’re booking this company to call them 24 hours in advance and ensure that they are coming.

    The Kensington Photographer's reply:

    Hi Charlotte,

    First and foremost - we are extremely sorry for the mix up, it’s no excuse but we had just updated our management diary system to accommodate covid rescheduling which ironically was installed to avoid situations such as this one. It won’t come as a consolation, but as an additional measure to avoid any future date confusions, we introduced automated reminders for us and our couples as a preventative measure.

    On the day we were willing to do anything possible to get a photographer to you; and as as you mentioned, we said we could get a photographer to you within the hour. Your response was really positive considering, and you calmly responded by saying it’s ok, we have a photographer here who has come with the videographer. We double checked if you were absolutely sure, and again you seemed more than happy to continue with the photographer that had arrived with your videographer. We assumed this matter was resolved, as you seemed happy to use your videographers/ photographer. We are a little surprised with the recent comments, as it has been months since your wedding and you have decided just now to upload this review. If we knew you felt this way we would have got a photographer to you, albeit a bit later than planned. But you seemed absolutely fine on the day, and gave us no impression that you were unhappy to the point you would post a negative review.

    We are not sure what happened with our Facebook communication, and we will certainly look into why you no longer have access.

    We are really sorry you feel this way, and if we knew you were so unsatisfied, we would have done more to rectify the situation on the day.

    Yours sincerely,
    The TKP Team
