Testimonials – or “Dear John” Letters

Dear John
Thank you so much for having been so wonderful on the day. So many people remarked how nice you were and how they liked the fact that you weren’t at all bossy, but still managed to pop up everywhere and get great photos. Thank You! ”
Ilona and Gareth


Dear John
Thank you so much for the fantastic wedding photos. Not only did you create so many fantastic images and capture all the guests naturally, but you also blended into the day so well that you felt like a guest, NOT the photographer. Everyone commented on your friendly approach and the children loved helping you – so thanks also for the free child minding!
Cheryl and Steve


Dear John
Thank you for taking so many great shots and being so great on the day. You were a calming influence and stopped me from racing down the aisle. Thanks for keeping sleeping aids everything on time with your great sense of humor.
Ellie and Alan


Dear John
We knew that someone who came highly recommended by Janet and Tim at Manor Barn would be good, but we can honestly say you exceeded our expectations. We really appreciate the way you dealt with our guests and made them feel so at ease.  Thank you again for everything.
Zoe and Richard


Dear John
I’m writing to thank you for the wonderful photos of our wedding which beautifully capture the essence of the day. We found you to be very professional and organized and a pleasure to have around. I was particularly pleased with your photos of me: I am not at all photogenic and yet you have produced some wonderful shots, which I am very happy to display. We would happily recommend you.
Aileen and Chris

I feel strongly that your wedding day is exactly that, your day, not mine. You tell me the kind of photos you want and then we'll work together to create a unique set of images.

I work in reportage style because that is what I am -- a reportage photographer who does weddings. I've shot dozens of stories for leading British and international publications, and I bring my magazine style of photography to your wedding.

I work unobtrusively and sensitively, concentrating on creating natural, spontaneous photos. I do group shots quickly and painlessly (though never sloppily), so that you are free to spend more time with your family and friends.
