Highly recommend, caputred our day perfectly!
Impeccable Photography and Videography
These guys are absolutely incredible, from start to finish (Which was over 12 hours) they were amazing with me, my husband and our guests.
No request was too large and they came up with some wonderful picture and video ideas.
We have had a little sneak peak photo which is unedited and it is amazing. So we cannot wait for the photos and videos when they are ready because we know how amazing they are going to be!
If you are looking for a photographer and videographer who not only gives you some incredible memories to hold onto after you day, but people who genuinely are passionate about their profession and really make you feel comfortable, then please book these guys! They are amazing!
Thank you, Richard, Matt and Taylor. For being a huge part of our day and creating some lasting memories for us!
Lucky Find Highly Recommend
We checked out many photography websites, found several with slightly cheesey overly staged poses which isn’t really our thing, but when we came across Specular Visuals we really liked the gallery with a mix of relaxed poses and natural candid photos.
Communication was easy, he responded straight away to our enquiry and we booked and paid a deposit pretty much there & then. We didn’t have lots of money to spend, So we’re grateful that Richard was accommodating and agreed to do approx 3hrs, rather than all day and just good quality digital copies rather than prints, which meant we could stay well within our budget.
He also knew the area and had photographed there before (New Hall Hotel - Sutton Coldfield) this meant we didn’t have to arrange a meeting to walk through the area looking for spots - so left us more time to sort out the rest of the wedding! - Also made us feel more confident that we could trust him as an experienced wedding photographer.
On the day he was great, he arrived well on time, he was smart and appropriately dressed, he was friendly and professional. He made us feel at ease and relaxed and was great at being a part of the wedding without ‘intruding’ on it - he knew how to be discreet and take pictures of the ceremony etc without being a distraction and was good at giving direction/ instruction and getting us organised for the big group photos etc.
He took all the list of shots that we requested, all the obligatory wedding group shots, confetti throwing, rings and flowers etc. And allowed /encouraged us to be silly and creative for some of them (we brought sword fighting re-enactors props).
He made sure we were stood in the right light and captured the sunny day and made sure that there were pics in all the lovely locations in the hotel and around the grounds.
He also got lots of lovely natural photos of everyone just having a great time, enjoying the wedding, genuine happy emotions and laughter.
Communication has still been great after the wedding and our photos have been organised really quickly! - about 3-4 wks - Our wedding was at Halloween and we have not yet reached the end of November- and we have already received the preview of all our photos.
We were absolutely delighted with them! The fuzzy warm haze of the wedding had just about worn off and we got to relive it all again through the pictures. There’s so many good ones of everyone - I am not particularly photogenic and sometimes get stiff and unnatural when my picture is being taken - but for the most part I barely even knew the photographer was there and he’s managed to capture so many joyous pretty natural happy smiley laughing romantic pics.
Thank you Richard we are really grateful you did an excellent job!
We happily recommend Specular Visuals for your wedding photography or any other event where you want natural pictures that capture genuine moments and emotions!
attached is a mini selection of candid & posed shots & landsacpes - he was great at capturing all the little moments - note that these are cut and pasted together on paint - the original photos are much better quality - so this pic doesnt really do him justice
Amazing videographer - wedding 13 May
From start to finish the whole process was easy, and he was very punctual (both for our pre wedding zoom and on the day itself). He combined brilliantly with our photographer and it seemed like they had worked together for years (when it was in fact there first time meeting I believe). The end result was a great video that really captured the day, right from the beginning all the way to the end of the day.
Would highly recommend Richard.

Perfect wedding weekend photogrpahy and videography
The communication was great, Richard responded quickly and we set up a zoom chat to discuss the finer details. We really like his relaxed and natural way of filming and after discussing the structure of how the day will be filmed we knew Specular Visuals were the videographers for us, the addition of the drone just made it even better!
It’s all in the details
I’m so glad though, that we made the decision to film our wedding. Richard was unobtrusive; in the nicest possible way I forgot he was there.
He captured all the little creative details I’d stressed were really important as a creative individual and also the fact that it was equally about our friends and family as well as us. We’ve watched our highlight video and it’s effortlessly stylish and sensitive bringing all those emotions of the day back!
We can’t wait to share it with everyone and see all of the ceremony, speeches and bits of the day we missed in the moment.
