Everything we asked for

From the moment we met Neil and seeing some of his amazing photos we knew he was our guy. He listens to what you want, but we also up for him experimenting on the day to give us something different. Very friendly and puts you so much at ease, highly recommend the pre photo shoot so you know what's expected on the day and it's, a good time to get to know him before the big day. Any questions you have, always quick to respond.
Cant recommend him highly enough we have some amazing photos

Wedding photographer

From the first call I knew Neil was the man for the job. He was very professional and open to ideas. I certainly wasn’t looking for your “bog standard wedding photos”. I wanted fun photos that told a story about our relationship and that’s exactly what we got. I would highly recommend Neil.

Pre Wedding Shoot

Neil and Sam were great on the day, making us feel comfortable and relaxed. We received our photos quite quickly after having the shoot and all were amazing. Looking forward to our wedding day with them!

Total natural.... didn't even know he was there

Felt totally at ease from the start and barely noticed he was there, and I hate my picture being taken. He listened and was great with advice. Most importantly.... the pictures were amazing and capture the day perfectly. Thank you.

Only way to summarise is to just say WOW. An Amazing photographer and a Wonderful human being

What can I say?? Utterly Fabulous. From the very beginning Neil and Sam went along with my crazy ideas and the results speak for themselves. We had a bit of luck with the weather but the photographs are amazing in every way. Neil is such a naturally funny bloke who manages to make you feel at ease straight away. I hate having my photo taken but he managed to capture the most wonderful moments in a natural way. Every image sent to me conjures up amazing memories of 2 very special days and that is down to the skill of the person behind the lens. I can't thank you both enough for your time and expertise (and also the fact you had to put up with my extreme lack of time management and chilled outlook on things).
Utterly wonderful. And a great couple of super friendly people too. Fabulous.

Incredible from start to finish!

Couldn’t recommend Neil enough! He made us feel comfortable from the moment we met him. He is the ultimate professional and we were over the moon with our photos!
He even gave us some great advice ahead of our wedding day.

The most incredible wedding photographer!

Neil shot our wedding and the photos he produced are absolutely outstanding! our ceremony took place in a cave, and despite the obvious lighting challenges he managed to capture the most incredible shots! Everyone who has seen our wedding photos is absolutely blown away by how well he documented every facet of the day. He was there from start to finish - I mean 7am til almost midnight! And he did such an amazing job of blending into the background, capturing wonderfully candid shots and making everyone feel relaxed. I would recommend Neil in a heartbeat, and I cannot thank him enough for documenting the most amazing day of our lives.

Perfectly captured ♡

We met Neil and his wife Sam at a wedding fair we attended with friends. At the time we had little intention of heading down the aisle any time soon, however after browsing through Neil's portfolio and getting to know a little about his style, we knew the second we left the table that we wanted him to capture our day. In fact, we were so inspired, we ended up booking our wedding venue only a month later! From the initial conversation, to the quote, payment and plans for the day, it was smooth sailing. We knew we wanted to spend the day in the moment with our guests and didn't want the photography to take us away from that. Neil helped to guide us with our photography plan, which ensured that we had the day we wanted, whilst capturing all those special moments and people. Neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera, however Neil and his colleague made both us and our guests feel so at ease. The images arrived very promptly and took our breath away. Neil captured the story of our day perfectly.

Wedding 9/11/23

Neil, thank you for making our day so amazing and a day we will never forget! You took such beautiful photos! We couldn’t even tell you were there throughout the day! All the guests couldn’t speak highly enough of you and how comfortable you made them all feel! Would 100% recommend Neil! Hes a natural! Thank you again for making beautiful memories for us.

Perfect, natural, the best out there!

Saying yes to getting married I knew I already wanted Neil to take my wedding photos. From the minute he arrived at my mums he was professional, from helping capture the most perfect moments to brewing up for all the hair & makeup artists that were on full speed. He captured every single moment perfectly throughout the day. We only booked him for half of the day, however he stayed longer and captured moments that I missed and each little special part of our day is told in all our pictures. Neil brought flares for us to have pictures with, and even gave words of wisdom and helped to wipe away my tears of joy when I arrived at the venue. If I ever needed a photographer again, it would always be Neil! He went above and beyond, even carrying a bottle of Chanel round so I smelt beautiful all day.
Even after the wedding, writing the most incredible blog, and seeing the pictures was a dream come true.

Fantastic photos and service

Neil was absolutely spot on and listened to what we were looking for. He was lovely and made us feel at ease and the photos we’ve seen so far are beautiful with a lovely “mood” to them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Neil.

Phenomenal

I can’t speak highly enough of Neil. His relaxed and personable approach helped us feel so comfortable and everyone really enjoyed being around him, whilst still being professional. He is such a talented photographer and I would highly recommend to any couple looking for someone to capture their special day!
