    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

    Friendly, professional and great results!

    We booked The Kensington Photographer for our wedding after winning some money off in a Facebook competition - what luck it turned out to be! Leading up to the day, Jason's communication was excellent, ensuring we'd have the service and results we were looking for.

    On the day, David was friendly and enthusiastic, arriving early and getting straight to work, engaging with us and our guests and becoming a memorable part of our day. We've been to lots of weddings where the photographer got in the way of enjoying the day - David couldn't have been further from this, and was a real pleasure to have around. We're over the moon with our photos and wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Kensington Photographer. Thank you and good luck with your boat!

    Simply amazing

    We had the most amazing experience
    Our photographer was friendly and professional.
    Our whole journey has been brilliant

    Brilliant photographer

    We had the lovely Emily as our photographer, she was faultless. She made us both feel very at ease and made the photographs very fun and natural. She managed to photograph everything, she was not shy in getting every possible photo but at she same time managed to blend in so well I didn’t even know she had taken some of the photos! Emily was very eager to find amazing spots for the best possible pictures and she really made our day. All guests commented on how brilliant she was and our photographs are amazing. We are both so pleased with the photographs and can’t wait to receive our prints. Emily really captured us as a couple but also some special moments throughout the day.
    The online gallery is a great way to share our pics with our friends and I cannot recommend this company enough! Thank you!

    Can’t put into words how incredible they were

    I will forever be grateful to The Kensington Photographer. Communication was amazing; Jason explained everything really clearly and was so helpful, especially with a postponement. Mick on the day was phenomenal. He made everyone feel so at ease and we had so many comments from guests and suppliers about how great he was. Our photos are absolutely stunning - Mick went above and beyond to capture exactly what we were looking for - natural candid shots. Our presentation box with our printed photos just topped it all off.
    I could go on and on, but if you’re looking for a wedding photographer, The Kensington Photographer is exceptional!

    The Kensington Photographer's reply:

    Thank you, Hazel! Was a pleasure to be part of your celebration! So glad to hear you are happy with everything!

    Could not fault!

    The whole experience of working with The Kensington Photographer was an absolute dream. Jason was always quick to respond to any questions or emails and kept us fully informed every step of the way. On the wedding day, Mick blew away our expectations. He was professional and friendly and the photos he took were simply amazing. Both formal and informal pictures showed all our guests having fun - he knew just when to take the perfect shot.

    Highly recommend!

    We would definitely recommend the Kensington Photographer to anybody getting married. Mick was so organised and efficient- he worked quickly on the morning of our wedding to make sure we managed to get all of the shots we requested in our photography planner. He was great with our two young daughters who were flower girls which allowed him to get some great shots of them before the wedding. He went above and beyond during the day to make sure we had the most amazing pictures and made the most of the area around the venue. Whenever guests were taking their own photos Mick was right there every time to capture a professional one for them too. Numerous people have commented since on how fantastic our photographer was and how he didn’t stop all day. We were also sent a preview of our gorgeous photos on Christmas Day which made our Christmas- we absolutely loved them and we can’t wait to see the rest!
    Thank you so much!
