A couple of lovely testimonials from recent weddings

It’s always rewarding when my couples take some time out to write a small testimonial reviewing the service and photos that they received.

I always fully appreciate the time and effort that it takes them to create account and then physically type up a short review.

Every now and then I like to share some of these, as firstly I’m proud of how people feel about my photos and my involvement on their special day, and also secondly it’s a great way to show unbiased feedback and endorsements of my work from people who have booked my services.

 

Lauren & Anup’s Wedding

Northbrook Park, Farnham
Lauren+Anup-0281

We couldn’t be happier with our wedding pictures…they capture our day, guests and the venue beautifully. Sam had an ability to capture everyone perfectly without you even noticing him clicking away.

Not only is Sam a great photographer he is also a good guy, he kept me calm and laughing through torrential rain, challenging guests and put up with my lateness with a smile on his face the whole day.

Everyone at the wedding mentioned how great he was and just how lovely the pictures are. He also managed to win over some very temperamental page boys and flower girls.

Thanks Sam!

We couldn’t have asked for any better photographer from start to finish. Sam was professional, friendly and thorough throughout the whole process of our wedding.

 

He was always in contact with us and always gave us great ideas and honest opinions. He was so organised on the day and made us feel at ease and we didn’t have to worry about anything.
The end result could only be described as fantastic. The photos were awesome and the hardest part was choosing the photos for our album as they were all so good. Sam also accommodates you if you have any particular requests and on the day, everything was like clockwork and kept to the itinerary.
He even went the extra mile and stayed longer than he should to get some evening shots of guests. We have recommended Sam to all of our friends and we will have no hesitation using his services again in the future for events and we would recommend him to anyone.

Lauren & John’s Wedding, Crondon Park Golf & Country Club, Stock, Essex

I had the pleasure of travelling over to Essex in the Spring to capture the wedding of Lauren and John at Crondon Park Golf & Country Club in Stock.

Most golf clubs tend to be good locations for wedding photos as they offer vast beautiful, lush, natural backdrops, some including water features and lakes – they can provide many options for portraits.

Crondon Park was no exception to this rule.

I even discovered a couple of brilliant un-orthodox options within the grounds upon my pre scouting visit prior to the wedding.  These included things such as a detached HGV trailer, a pile of construction poles, and a derelict tractor – all of which we fully utilised for porraits throughout the day.

The clubhouse itself also featured a delightful renovated barn, which provided a lovely setting for the wedding breakfast.

It was a cracking day, and the sun was in full force – then again this was the spring, of course we didn’t see too much of it thereafter as we all well know!!!

I’ve included a few shots below from the day, so please feel free to have a look.
