  1. We can’t speak highly enough of this fantastic pair! We were forced to look for an alternative wedding photographer just months before our wedding after being let down by someone we had booked the previous year. It was a miracle that Bryan just happened to have that midsummer Saturday still free and after meeting them to discuss our wedding in more detail they made us feel instantly relaxed and at ease so we booked them straight away. We met them again a few weeks later for our pre-shoot and it was great to get to know them both a bit more and understand some of their creative ideas ahead of our big day. We strongly recommend other couples consider doing this. We would like to say a big Thank you to Bryan and his team for all their hard work and dedication to our wedding photography. We are confident that they produce the best wedding photos that we have ever seen. Throughout the day they both put us at ease and this is reflected in the natural style of photography.

  2. If you’re reading this review then you’ve already discovered Bryan’s website and will know that his style of wedding photography and the quality of his work is second to none. We adore looking at our album and seeing a record of how the day progressed. Bryan’s photographs tell a story and capture the most natural shots possible. For us, this is so much more important than the traditional style of wedding photography where family groups are corralled together, one after another, for unimaginative group shots. Bryan is very courteous and is able to cover the day without being obtrusive while at the same time being in the right place at the right time. We had many compliments about Bryan from our guests.

    Every wedding day is unique and ours spanned multiple venues, not least being a punting trip on the River Cam! Bryan was able to cover all this as well as the bride’s preparations across town as the day began.

    Following the wedding, Bryan designed a beautiful wedding album and we were delighted to receive a link to our draft album on-line while we were still on honeymoon. The album design was so perfect we made no changes at all! The final album arrived promptly and is a beautiful record of our day.

    If you’re wondering if it is worth spending the money then we say “do it!” You won’t find a better wedding photographer than Bryan.

  3. “Bryan has such an amazing talent for capturing ‘moments’ which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. It’s not the formal photos that remind you how great your day was – it’s the natural fun and excitement that is so important to be documented. Bryan’s ability not to miss a moment is incredible, and his energy and passion comes across in the photos. He is able to blend in so well that your guests and literally will not realise they’re being photographed. We could not recommend Bryan more”

  4. “Thanks again for providing a first class service. With one of the biggest days of our lives and such a huge action packed event, we feared that we would not be able to stop and take it all in and the day would soon fade from our memories. However you’ve truly captured the essence of our day providing us with so many wonderful images.”

  5. “Bryan was an unbelievable photographer. From the moment we met for our gorgeous engagement shoot he made us feel relaxed and natural, it was like walking along the beach with a friend. He was very clear in all his correspondence before the wedding and arrived early on the day and was really careful about giving us all space without missing any important moments. My mother in law was worried about us being taken away for a long time during our private shoot, but Bryan subtly grabbed us at different times throughout the day and no one noticed we were gone & we had the benefit of having lovely couple photographs in different light as it changed. The party shots are my faves and have been shared a huge amount on Facebook! Such gorgeous light and energy. Thank you Bryan! We will treasure the photos for ever!”

  6. “Hi Bryan, I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you to you for the beautiful wedding photos. You have created some stunning shots that take us back to the day each time we look at them. You’ve captured all the emotions, laughter and love perfectly. They have also been amazing to show family and friends that couldn’t make our day and all of them have said they feel like they were there after viewing them.
    Thank you also for the reassurance you gave me the morning of the wedding! Not only would we recommend you – we would shout it from the rooftops! You got to know us as a couple and all the small intricacies of our wedding and the results are just phenomenal!”

  7. “Bryan was quite simply a photographic ninja for our wedding and a bloody good chap to boot. The photos he captured were nothing short of world class. It was almost as though he was never there as he was so unobtrusive but captured every single moment we could have hoped for and hundreds we would have missed..”

  8. “If you are looking for a photographer to capture the true essence and feeling of your wedding day, then look no further. We cannot rate Bryan any higher; he is extremely professional yet somehow manages to mingle in so well with your guests that he becomes one of them – so discrete! His photos, absolutely perfect and flawless – we got married on very windy, dark day in December, thank god we had picked Bryan to capture the day as the quality and number of special moments captured were outstanding. You will have no regrets if you go with Bryan!”

  9. “Being within the creative industry ourselves, we knew what style of photography we wanted for our wedding and came across Bryan’s portfolio. His reportage photography, fantastic eye for composition along with his modern post-production style and skills were exactly what we were after. We met Bryan over a cup of coffee and very quickly realised that his friendly, approachable personality along with his enthusiasm and passion for his work shone out amongst the crowd, and we had every faith that he would be perfect for our day. Bryan was a pleasure to work with, we had lots of fun, he made us feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera and he was discreet whilst also being authoritative when he needed to be. We loved his calm nature and on the day he blended amongst our guests effortlessly. We were absolutely blown away with the results! Bryan beautifully captured the essence of our perfect day and his photography will tell our story for ever more! Thank you :)”

  10. “Too many wedding photographers have a cookie cutter approach to capturing a wedding with portfolios where its hard to tell one wedding for the next. But we didn’t want to feel like we were on the sort of photoshoot that we have to organise as part of our jobs as PR and advertising managers, and we wanted someone who could roll with the unconventional elements of a gay wedding. Bryan¹s photo journalism style meant that he was able to capture the feel of our wedding on film and avoid the staged pictures that neither of us wanted. Everyone was impressed by the pictures that Bryan took for us and they were even used in a four-page photo spread in Attitude Magazine.”

  11. “Bryan was absolutely fantastic! We are so glad we found him and were so lucky he was available for our wedding day. His style is exactly what we were looking for – beautifully crafted, artistically awesome photos. He captured every special moment from the day and was so incredibly unobtrusive you barely knew he was there. We love the photos so much, and would 100% recommend him.”

  12. “Bryan is an extremely talented Photographer, particularly when it comes to capturing the subtleties & natural moments. We were really impressed with the coverage of the day, and the beautiful finish to the shots. Thank you!”

  13. “When we found Bryan online we knew we’d found “the one”. He not only takes gorgeous photos, but he has a unique way of catching special moments between people and our wedding photos were no exception. We loved how he captured the beauty of the wedding location and appreciated all of the little moments captured between us and our guests that are now in photo form. His friendly demeanour made him feel like he was one of our guests and it put us both at ease in front of the camera. Bryan was also very professional and efficient from the initial inquiry through to the big day and right up to the post wedding correspondence. We will forever recommend him to friends and family. Book him now- you won’t regret it!”

  14. “We really umm’d and aaah’d about whether to pay for a professional photographer, because we were on a pretty tight budget, and we have friends with good cameras. After chatting to Bryan, and hearing more about his approach, we decided to take the plunge, and we’re definitely glad we did. It’s so pleasurable to look back at the pictures and remember the day, and also get to see lovely little moments that we missed, that Bryan captured. He fitted in perfectly, not forcing any poses or getting in the way at all, but taking *FANTASTIC PICTURES*, mostly candid shots and documenting the day as it unfolded.”

  15. Not only a talented photographer, Bryan is a pleasure to be around. Booking him was very simple and throughout the lead-up to our wedding he was clear and efficient, asking what we wanted and guiding us through what was needed to get it.

    On the day, he was unfailingly polite and friendly to everyone he came across, and yet invisible most of the time. He really just let us, and all our guests, get on with enjoying the day – it was crucial to us that we could actually enjoy the results of all the effort we’d put into planning it, and although Bryan was always at our disposal, it was so nice to just let him get on with it!

    Bryan has an incredible talent for capturing a feeling in an image. Going through one of his albums, you never fail to get a sense of the atmosphere at each and every event. And that’s exactly what we wanted – not a collection of snapshots of our nearest and dearest, but a record of the day as a whole, something we could look back on and remember how every step of the way felt.

    Bryan delivered a beautiful set of images that capture many very happy memories – I’m sure we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come.

  16. We could not recommend Bryan highly enough! He produced the most beautiful pictures and managed to capture the essence of the day in a way we could not have imagined. We found no need for a videographer as Bryan’s photos told the story of the day just perfectly and – each time we look at our photos – we spot somebody’s expression or a clever detail that we missed the first time around.

    When choosing a photographer, you spend a lot of time looking at other people’s wedding photos and hope that yours will turn out just as well. Nothing compares to looking at your own and, with Bryan, they will turn out even better!

  17. After attending a friend’s wedding in 2005 we were given the link to view the professional wedding photos. We were awestruck. Each photo was mesmerising, capturing intimate moments in beautiful style. This is how we discovered the fantastic talents of Bryan.

    Five years later and we were engaged to be married. There was no discussion, Bryan was the photographer we wanted. We were not disappointed. Bryan’s style and character fitted exactly with what we wanted; no deliberate posing, no ordering about and no lengthy photo shoots away from our guests, just great moments to savour forever. Picture perfect!

  18. Our wedding was never going to be a ‘wedding in a box’, like you get from many places which organise the whole thing for you. No white dress or morning suits, a big chocolate cake covered Smarties, a hog roast, sloe gin and tonic instead of champagne, and home-grown flowers – and definitely no little pillow to put the rings on. Given all this, we wanted a photographer who’d capture the mood of the day, with all its emotions, and who would take interesting, dynamic pictures that we’d want to have around the house, rather than stiff, formal shots that would gather dust in an album in an attic somewhere.

    We were thrilled with the pictures that Bryan took – just looking back at them reminds us of a brilliant day. He captured people’s expressions perfectly, and when we first looked through the pictures we found that there were so many which we had no idea that he’d taken, with all the little details that made the day special.

    We couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

  19. A perfect wedding photographer. We got married at Sheene Mill in Melbourn and were so pleased we chose Bryan to be our photographer. We were really impressed with the initial contact and how clearly Bryan explained his approach to our big day, and found the engagement portrait session really helpful in making us more at ease. For two people who are not keen on having their photo taken, this was remarkable!

    On the day, Bryan was wonderful, polite and we had many comments from guests about how well he merged into the background – looking at our album it was amazing how he managed to capture every moment. We were thrilled with the photos and the quality of the album, and would recommend Bryan in an instant.

  20. We cannot recommend Bryan highly enough. They set us at ease on our pre-shoot and made is feel comfortable in what can feel like an awkward situation. The photos were more beautiful than we could ever have hoped for and we knew we’d made the right choice for our wedding day. Bryan was so great on the day, he was calm, professional and relaxed yet made sure everyone was in the right place and during the ceremony, he captured wonderful moments without being intrusive or distracting in any way. his reporting style fitted just what we wanted and told the story of the day perfectly. The photo booth was such fun and the photos on the dance floor were fab. We’ve had so many compliments on our wedding photos, including “best wedding photographers ever”, a sentiment that we agree with. Using Bryan will be one of the best decisions you make!
    Sophia and Jim, South Farm

  21. On the pre shoot and the wedding day Bryan made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. Our photographs are a beautiful documentation of our wedding, they understood us as a couple and managed to reflect our style well. The photographs are expertly shot and capture all those small moments that you want to look back on and remember. They are professional in every way and you hardly notice them on the day. Having Bryan and his team as our photographers was even more special as Bryan and I have known one another since we were 9 years old. They are a faultless team and exceptionally professional. Tick one thing off your wedding list and pick Lina and Tom as your wedding photographers, it will be the best decision you make.
    Emma and Bobby, London

  22. We actually met Bryan through another couple (Aimee and Sam) who were representing them at the Hotel du Vin wedding fair in Cambridge. Rather than getting the hard sell that lots of other people had given us, Aimee and Sam simply took us through their own wedding album. As soon as we saw the photos we knew that we wanted to work with bryan. It’s one of the best decisions we made.

    They were an absolute delight to work with and really made the effort to get to know us as a couple, which meant that the photos have captured “us”. As we were getting married in a very formal setting (St Paul’s Cathedral), it was really important to us that our photos weren’t stiff and stilted – they managed to beautifully capture the fun and emotion of the day including some beautiful moments we wouldn’t even have noticed otherwise.

    Bryan and his team were with us all day and their energy levels never seemed to flag. They blended in perfectly with our guests – Brtyan was a dancefloor photography ninja stealthily taking some amazing shots of everyone throwing shapes on the dancefloor and his assitant managed to politely but firmly corral everyone efficiently for all our group shots, including clearing the steps of St Paul’s of all tourists to enable us to get our group shot (no mean feat!).

    In addition, they are a great source of wedding tips so we picked their brains on everything from cakes to first dances and got some great advice. Our wedding would not have been the same without them and not only do we now have the most stunning set of wedding pictures to look back on in years to come, but hopefully we’ve made good friends too.
    Ellie and Rich, St Paul’s, London

  23. I am so glad to have had Bryan and his team photograph our wedding: they were just amazing throughout the whole process, not to mention effortlessly professional and unflappable on the day. Their style of photography exactly matched our expectations for how we wanted our wedding photos to look, and we are thrilled with the results.

    We are based in Hampshire, making it tricky to meet face to face, but Bryan was always available via email or Skype to talk things through-and we thoroughly enjoyed our initial Skype conversations talking through all things wedding! Bryan really took the time to find out how we ticked as a couple, and to envisage the style of our wedding.

    On the day itself, Bryan was a source of calm and really useful advice when it came to basic practicalities like when to get into your wedding dress! And some of my favourite photos are from when Tom and I are getting ready, seeing all the stuff that I missed before the actual ceremony itself.

    When we first looked through the photos of the day, we couldn’t believe how many special moments they had captured without us even realising-they have a knack of just being able to capture the moments that matter, without you even knowing they’re there. Their people-organising is also superb: they successfully managed to coordinate a large group of people seamlessly (a task I have witnessed many other wedding photographers fail at) whilst taking the group shots at our reception.

    You only get one shot (pardon the pun) at capturing your wedding day, and I would thoroughly recommend Bryan to be the ones to take on the task.

    Every time I look back through the wedding album, I’m reminded of what a special day it was, expertly captured forever!! Thanks guys! Xx
    Kirsty and Tom, Hampshire

  24. An incredibly talented duo who literally captured every single detail of our Wedding day in the most remarkable way! All the moments we couldn’t possibly have seen or necessarily remembered – they caught on camera, working in sync with each other, making sure absolutely nothing was missed!! For this, my husband and I are eternally grateful! Every time we look at our beautiful album, we literally re-live the day! I in particular still feel the nerves I felt at the time, when I look at particular shots of me just about to enter the church! Now that, to me, is incredible, how someone can capture such raw emotion in just those particular shots (let alone the rest!!) absolutely incredible work!

    We also had our pre-wedding shoot with Bryan – never, had we had so much fun! We felt so at ease and comfortable around them, which I think is so important! You need to have that connection with the photographers you choose – that way you can fully open up and be yourselves! This, we felt, was achieved effortlessly by how Bryan and his team were with us! Simply a wonderful couple who want nothing more than the best for you and will do whatever it takes to achieve this! All our best memories so far have been captured and shared with them!

    To our delight, they have recently revealed to us that they now also do baby shoots, which we’re particularly excited about as we’ve just had our first baby boy – Oliver!

    We can’t recommend them highly enough!!

    Annabell and Lewis, Rectory Farm

  25. Bryan is simply the best! From our initial discussions he hopped right on board with our vision for our wedding and really helped us to define exactly what it was that we wanted for coverage, location and were very enthusiastic about making sure that our vision was possible and that the finish result reflected this. As the majority of my family couldn’t make it overseas for our wedding, it was really important to us that we had great photographs to share- they were so great that we have pictures that people are still mention it frequently a year later!

    My husband and I met and married in London and as part of the day between the ceremony and our dinner, Bryan came along with us on a whirlwind tour of the city, photographing us in places that are special and meaningful to us as a couple. They were fantastic sports and I just wish that I could attach some of these pictures as they are truly, truly amazing.We had a great pre-wedding shoot in Cambridge as well to make sure that we photographed where we live and put Bryan’s pet photography skills to the test with our cat Dotty!

    A mention of their professionalism as well- of course while they were making sure they got every shot we might have wanted, our guests commented on how subtle Bryan was in blending into backgrounds and were extremely effective at wrangling group shots and organising a number of group shots with minimal fussing about.

    We hope that everyone is lucky enough to have the experience of captured memories and happy moments but Bryan will always hold a special place for what they were able to capture for us
    Meghan and Simon, London

  26. “I HATE having my photo taken and I never like the outcome. The pre-shoot eased us into the experience and let us be ‘us’. Within 20 minutes I had forgotten Bryan was there… I couldn’t believe the pictures were of us; looking so natural, happy and in love. This was not how I usually saw myself in a photo! The night before we were heading to the venue Bryan called me; we’d been organising the wedding with very few worries or stresses…but on that day, I was totally overwhelmed – it was like she knew! Bryan chatted me through this and helped talk about what to expect on the day. I came off the phone feeling like a weight had been lifted – bring on the big day!! They were so wonderful, getting so many shots that we didn’t even know about! Every moment spent with them and every conversation was always fun, relaxed and natural; as if we had known them for years! We made the right decision in having them photograph our most important day; and we will definitely use them again!”
    Diane and Gareth, Cambridge

  27. I first met Bryan when he did a conference shoot for my company, the results were amazing (let’s face it, if you can make a corporate conference look good..!) When I started planning my wedding there was no doubt in my mind who I wanted to do my photography – it had to be Bryan. I can honestly say that it was an absolute pleasure working with them. Bryan is friendly, helpful and can provide endless advice on all things wedding related. Need help with buttonholes/corsages? No problem! Top tips on lacing up a wedding dress? – he can help! And of course, the photos were absolutely gorgeous! Such beautiful shots of the whole day, bryan always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. Thank you for doing such a fantastic job of capturing our wedding day.
    Lisa and Steve, Cambridge

  28. It’s been almost 3 months since Adam and I got married and well over a year since we booked Bryan as our wedding photographers and I can safely say that time has in no way mellowed my appreciation for the fabulous work this team does! Every step of the way they were warm, fun, insightful and incredibly generous with their time and energy. Nothing about the service we got from Bryan was generic, from the quirky password to access our proofs to the little notes and extras that accompany the fabulous photos themselves. All the extra flourishes show how much pride they have in their work and what lovely, kind and thoughtful people they are! Having 2 photographers is incredible; you get to relive your wedding from so many different perspectives, capturing the fun and love of your family and closest friends. Whenever I look at our photos (which is a lot…) it reminds me to be grateful and celebrate with the people I love, I’m not sure you could ask anymore from your wedding photographers!
    Katherine and Adam, Childerley Hall

  29. Bryan and his team aren’t just utterly phenomenal photographers, they’re utterly phenomenal people too. Aside from their awesome photography skills (which is evident in their work), they possess the wonderful ability to understand what makes a couple tick. For my wife and I this meant that bryan was immediately on our wavelength and understood the kind of wedding we wanted to have. They were also a fantastic goldmine of tips, suggestions and recommendations (and they even helped us clear up at the end of the night!!). You’re left with the impression that they’ve seen virtually everything that weddings have to offer!

    We couldn’t be happier with our experience. It was an absolute pleasure from start to finish and there just aren’t enough superlatives to sum up how awesome they are. I just wish that my wife and I could get married every year so Bryan could be there to shoot it. Book him now!!
    Katy and Kerr, Stevenage

  30. AMAZING!!!!! They are the most incredibly talented and professional couple. We have not even received our photos yet but I have every faith, our engagement photos are truly beautiful. On our wedding day you wouldn’t have known they were even there and everyone commented how great they were. I will recommend them to anyone I come into contact with!
    Steph and Steve, Dodford Manor

  31. As all of the previous reviews point out, Bryan and his team are fantastic wedding photographers. We were impressed right from our first meeting, and it was clear that they would walk us through every step of the process and shoot our wedding in a professional yet friendly way. Their calm / laid back attitude really helped put ourselves and our guests at ease, and they seamlessly moved about on the day almost unseen. More than just being great photographers, it was really great to meet / spend time with them. Thoroughly recommended!
    Phil & Suse, Childerley Hall

  32. We can’t recommend Bryan and his team highly enough. Their photography is original, natural and beautiful. They are very unobtrusive, to the extent that my eagle-eyed mother-in-law didn’t even notice them taking any photos during the ceremony, which is quite amazing. They are very friendly, and have tons of invaluable advice about weddings in general. I don’t really like having my photo taken, so was nervous about the whole thing, but Bryan put me instantly at ease. We have an amazing set of pictures and prints that really capture the energy and mood of the day.
    Ellie and Craig, Cambridge

  33. If you’ve looked at Bryan’s pics you’ll know they’re fab. We went for the all day wedding package and so glad we did; completely captured the fun of the day including the drunken evening party. Thanks Bryan & lloyd! x
    Kaite and Matthew, Burwash Manor

  34. Bryan and his team are great. In fact they are more than great, we don’t really think there is a large enough word to describe them. We couldn’t have asked for better photographers for our wedding. We met with five other photographers, but none of them came close in what they offered in terms of skill, enthusiasm or anything else. Everybody loves a good wedding – but these guys positively live for them. Their enthusiasm seemed boundless, which is what you need when planning gets a bit heavy going; and their knowledge and experience was extremely helpful. In particular, Lina recommended us a florist who was fantastic and a last minute dance teacher too but he was also full of great advice on just about everything else that we could think of.
    Overall, with Bryan you get much, much more than just a days coverage and a fixed package of prints and albums. They are so lovely, and so interested, that they want to go the extra mile and they certainly do. Everyone that has seen our photos has commented on their beauty and composition. Now we just have to think of another reason to have a photo-shoot so that we can see them again! They really were superb.
    Fiona and Michal, Kings College Cambridge

  35. First of all we would like to say Bryan and his team are the BEST wedding photographers we have ever seen. Bryan is a slick ninja, able to get pretty much anywhere within a blink of an eye, easily getting around us, his assintants manages to make you feel OK with a camera near your face, it’s incredible but with these two you forget there’s a camera around. All our guests were so impressed with how they worked together and got so many brilliant photos with so many absolute gems. They were very kind and helpful, being so engaging throughout our wedding prep, a sense of calm during all the manic times! Bryan gave us insight into the workings of weddings and gave us loads of ideas of how to plan the day. You get a lot more than just photos with these two. It sounds cheesy but we are both so blown away at these pair. Highly professional and exceptional standard of photography throughout. They are so flexible, my wife and I are shift workers so it was a little complicated to organise meetings with Bryan but they graciously worked it out for us and kept coming back with dates and times and didn’t get annoyed if we had to cancel last minute.
    The service is outstanding, the quality of photos is outstanding, they are genuine in their interest in your wedding, wanting to know all the details which I believe makes them stand out way above the crowd of other photographers. I have yet to meet a couple so engaging, fun and easy to be around as Bryan.
    I would recommend him to anyone and everyone without hesitation. You can’t get better wedding photographers.
    Joanne and Ben, Cranford Hall

  36. Bryan & lloyd are simply superb! They perfectly captured all of the fun and emotion of our Wedding Day. We’re over the moon with our photos, crowned off with our block mount shot which is the most beautiful picture we think we’ve ever seen! They were a welcome calming influence throughout our Wedding preparations and completely understood what we wanted. They were fantastic with our guests on the day, especially during the group shots where our guests had no problem following Lina’s example of how to pose with our chosen props! We can definitely recommend the pre-wedding shoot which put us both at ease on the Big Day. They are the perfect choice for fun, relaxed and visually stunning photos. Thank you guys you are truly amazing!
    Jasmina & Dave, Springfield House

  37. Bryan made us feel very relaxed so we could chat naturally to each other and with him, as they took our pictures. We were thrilled with the work that he did for us… our pictures are amazing.
    Emma & Daniel, South Farm

  38. These guys are amazing…and made our day unforgettable. Everyone loves our photos and had fun playing in the photo booth too. Bryan gave our photos character and captured the wedding perfectly! Apart from their amazing work, they are lovely people and could not do enough to help us and make us feel comfortable. They made us feel like good friends!
    Kealy & Paul, Gilwell Park Chingford

  39. We had such a wonderful day, glad you could be a part of it, you guys were fantastic. We have received your wonderful album, and we’re thrilled with it! Peter and I have been delighted with everything you have done for us!
    Megan & Peter, Knebworth Barns

  40. Wow – we are speechless! They are absolutely fantastically, amazingly beautiful. They are just spectacular and we are just thrilled and so happy with them. We feel like we have re-lived the whole day and moments that we didn’t even know had happened. You really did capture everything and more you clever brilliant people! They are all stunning and so beautifully taken. We don’t know how to thank you enough as these are such precious memories that we will treasure forever.
    Sophie & Richard, Hinwick House

  41. I have been a graphic designer for over 30 years and have been involved in photography (and Photoshop) both professionally and personally. Never have I seen a set of photos that encapsulate a day like the ones you have created. I know that being close and personally involved, it perhaps draws me in more than other situations, but they really are first class. The mix of formal (not too many) and wonderful candid shots are just amazing. Technically too, the high contrast, fairly high key images have been achieved very consistently and have left me wondering just how you post-processed them. Suffice to say looking at what you have done I know just how much time and effort will have gone in to this. So all in all, I cannot thank you enough for turning in such a superb collection of images. They are the icing on the cake for what was such an enjoyable day for everyone.
    Sophie’s Dad – Mike

  42. In one word, Brilliant! Bryan could not have been more accommodating in making our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding day magical. he managed to get every possible moment captured on camera, moving quietly and professionally among the guests. The quality of their work is fantastic. They were a pleasure to have around us on the day, and worked so hard in making it all such a joy. And as for the evening photo booth…well, what a laugh!! Gave us all a chance to dress up and have a ball.Thank you so much.
    Megan’s Parents – Frances & Allan

  43. Thank you both so much for everything, you were both fab on the day and we are chuffed with the photos! If any of our friends get married we will definitely recommend you. We’re looking forward to displaying our lovely photos in our new house! Thank you so much for everything you did for us throughout the wedding planning and the actual day, you were so helpful and made it a really enjoyable experience for us.
    Rebecca & Paul, Slepe Hall Hotel

  44. Bryan was the perfect mix of professional, fun and friendly when the photographed our civil partnership. They were really helpful beforehand (and didn’t bat an eyelid at photographing a civil partnership), they answered all of my many questions, and on the day were fantastically self-sufficient. They both took photos throughout the day so as well as having twice as many shots, we also have different perspectives which really capture the day. I loved that Bryan carried on taking photos of people chatting whilst getting ready to stand still and smile for the group photos, as this really adds to the story. The photobook is wonderful too – i’m so glad we went for it. We’ve received lots of compliments on everything from how great Bryan and his assistant both were on the day, to how perfectly the photos tell the story of our day, and of course the photobook. Thank you!
    Carol & Alex, Jesus College Cambridge

  45. Bryan did an outstanding job of our wedding photos. He is just the right mix of professional and friendly – he almost felt like guests at the wedding! He took a huge number of photos and they were all fantastic. If you’re hesitating about going for their photo booth package, then don’t! It was the best decision we made. The photos are amazing and really capture the fun we had at the evening reception. I’m so happy we chose him – I can’t recommend him, enough!

  46. We would wholeheartedly recommend Bryan. He is a fantastic photographers, we could not be happier with our wedding photos and everyone that has seen them has commented that they are the best wedding photos they’ve seen.They captured the essence of the day without being obtrusive, everything from people talking after the ceremony to the shapes people were throwing on the dance-floor. We chose their top package and have some fantastic memories/pictures from people in the dressing up box. They made everyone feel very relaxed and therefore this meant they captured some amazing photos.
    Thanks ever so much Bryan.
    Margot & Will, Cripps Barn

  47. Very, very impressive! We would definitely recommend bryan. We always knew we didn’t want stilted formal photos, but we were amazed at the liveliness of Bryan’s shots. his unobtrusive way of working was also greatly appreciated! Having been guests at weddings with other photographers we were really pleased with Bryan’s gentle but firm crowd management skills. We are absolutely delighted with the book of photos they produced for us too – a brilliant way of remembering a fantastic day.
    Claudia & Tom, Newnham College Cambridge

  48. We would have no hesitation in recommending Bryan & Loyd as your wedding photographers. From the outset, they went the extra mile to get to know us so that the story book represented us, rather than being a standard set of wedding pictures. Bryan was excellent at ensuring that people were in the right place without being intrusive, which is a difficult balance to strike. They worked fantastically together and made us both feel extremely comfortable-no mean feat for people who dislike having their picture taken! From the pre-wedding preparations to the wedding, reception and evening do, the pictures represent exactly what we wanted them to-friends and family together having a fantastic time. The photobooth idea is inspired, and many of our guests have since commented on this-the photos produced from this were absolutely genius and are the cherry on the cake in our wedding album!

  49. WOW! Bryan is unbelievably talented. I have had nothing but wonderful compliments on our wedding pictures and though scenery has a lot to do with that, I know so much of it is because of Bryan. From our first conversation on the phone to the last email I have enjoyed every interaction. Getting pictures taken with him was exciting and if it weren’t for time schedules I would have loved to take more. Everyone looks fantastic in our pictures and he captured so many unexpected moments. You would feel lucky to have him take pictures for you!

  50. It was a pleasure working with Bryan for my wedding in St. Thomas. He was very familiar with the area, and knew all the perfect spots for beautiful photos. He was calm and patient with all my guests, and with me, as I was struck with wedding-day nerves!

    Bryan was with us for most of the day, taking pictures before the ceremony, during, and after, until almost the end of the reception. He captured all the family and friend shots we needed, and we were left with plenty of time for creative, artistic, and romantic shots as well. I didn’t realize how lovely they would be until I saw them, Bryan really has a great eye for a beautiful shot, and we will treasure the photos. We have some slightly more traditional “wedding portrait” photos, and many creative photographs that are beautiful simply as pieces of art, above and beyond a “wedding photo.”

    I loved that the photos do not look staged, fake, or cliche – he created lovely images that capture the beauty of our location and the excitement and romance of the wedding day.

    Bryan was totally dedicated to getting great shots – even wading into the ocean for a better angle! After the wedding day, he did a beautiful job editing the photos. I had plenty of mosquito bites that he expertly brushed out, which was much-appreciated! Bryan also worked with me to make additional changes to a few photos – I was so grateful for his willingness to put in additional work to alter a few photos per my preferences. (We had an errant guest wandering through a few otherwise-perfect pictures, and Bryan gently removed our wandering guest from those photos – I am so grateful!)

    Bryan’s patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. Everyone who has seen the wedding album loves the photos. His photography is highly recommended and I would certainly hire him again.

  51. Bryan is a brilliant photographer and such a friendly man. Our session could not have gone any better. Well… I could have done without the extreme heat and crazy wind.. 🙂

    We had our pictures in our hands within just a couple days! His work is flawless!

    Thank you again, Bryan!!!

    -Maxine & Dwayne

  52. Bryan was AMAZING! He was caring and considerate, creative and attentive. He was very polite and took the time to talk and email a lot ahead of time so he could deliver just what we wanted even though we were having a destination wedding and couldn’t meet him earlier. His pictures are phenomenal, especially his ability to get the colours and lighting to perfection. He provided the photos very quickly after the wedding, much faster than my friends’ photographers. We have gotten compliments on our wedding photos like you wouldn’t believe; many of my relatives have told us that they’ve never seen better wedding photos taken. I feel so lucky that my husband was able to find bryan.

  53. Bryan was amazing on our wedding day! We had never met before because we had a destination wedding; but he was more than we could ever hope for. Our images are amzing and we are so happy with the whole experience.
    Bryan has a great eye and we would have no hesitation recommending him to other couples for their special day.
    On a final note, we got married on Christmas Eve and that was never an issue for Bryan and we are so grateful for that.
    All the best!
    Brendan & Sarah

  54. Bryan made the wedding photo process a lot of fun, kept it interesting, took our suggestions but also had so much of his own suggestions that we just let him run with it and he turned around some great photos before we got home from our honeymoon.

    Highly recommended!

  55. Bryan is amazing. He is friendly and professional. We were pretty awkward at first, and he did a good job of calming us down and getting us comfortable in front of the camera. His use of color drew us in, and our pictures did not disappoint. I could not be happier with them. We paid a small rush fee, and they were online for us to download within a week. He also sent a disc for us to use within two weeks. I might have him just do our album, based on the quality of his work.

  56. Words can not describe how wonderful Bryan is, He is very professional but besides that he is great to work with he has a wonderful personality and his work speaks for itself what great work he does.
    Bryan made me and my husband feel so comfortable and it was like we knew him for years. We had Bryan for two hours and loved every minute of it, the time went by so fast. The pictures came out fantastic and the DVD with the pictures came out great. I want to thank Bryan for making our day wonderful wish I had more time, we could of spent all day with him!

    I would recommend any bride who is getting married in St.Thomas or anywhere in the Caribbean to contact Bryan you won’t be disappointed because we were not! Love you x

  57. To me, the most important service in a wedding is the photographer. Photographs last a lifetime, so selecting the right photographer to capture my special moments was crucial. My husband and I did alot of research on Bryan Johnson/ Paradise Pictures. Everything that turned up, we liked! Bryan has a very creative way of capturing the beauty of a single moment – we knew he was the one who was going to bring out the best in our wedding! From the start, Bryan was great to work with – very personable and easy going! The day we were scheduled to shoot our pre-wedding photos, it poured! Bryan called me first thing in the morning and assured me everything was going to be ok – we could reschedule for the day after the wedding (which was only 2 days away). He said the next day was going to be the same- rainy, but for my wedding day the weather was going to be perfect. (I think he said that to comfort me in case the weather wasn’t that great.) He was right though, the weather was perfect! Bryan arrived before we did and was taking pictures as we started to come in. The moments he captured of us and our wedding party were truly magical – straight from a magazine! The post wedding shoot was just as effortless with Bryan! Not only did he photograph us, but he also educated us on how to position a photo shot in order to utilize all of the surrounding elements. Working with Bryan was great! And now with all of the photos in front of me, I am so thankful we choose Bryan to capture all of those moments!! Memories that will last a lifetime! If you are thinking about having a wedding in the Virgin Islands and you need a photographer, Bryan is your man! He’s photography at its best!!!

  58. We LOVE our wedding Pictures!!

    Jay and I got married on a VERY popular wedding day and Bryan made us feel like we were his only couple of the week.

    We got rained out for our pre wedding photo shoot and Bryan happily rearranged his schedule to meet with us the following morning.

    On our wedding day, he arrived early and stayed a little bit longer than scheduled to capture our first dance of the night.

    Not only was Bryan’s customer service just great, he does AMAZING work. We are so beyond pleased with our pictures. They are absolutely beautiful.

    We highly recommend his services for any event you may have in St Thomas!

  59. As being a model & photographer in the past I am soo picky with pictures, after hours/days of searching online for the perfect photographer that fits our style and the type of talent and quality I am expecting—I am so happy that we picked Bryan! We only had a few hours in the island (we were on a cruise) for our ceremony and he was very professional, talented and personable! We were all so comfortable right from the start! I arranged everything last minute but he was still able to fit us in his schedule and produced AMAZING shots in such a tight time frame! (My main profile pic is a current sample of his work!) I highly recommend him! Check out his facebook page for more of his work!

  60. Bryan is Phenomenal and our pictures are Amazing! He provided quality photos that truly captured the essence of our day. He was consistently professional, reliable, and personable. I enjoyed his online portfolio, but after meeting him I knew he had the personality we were looking for. (Any vendor with a bad attitude is contagious and it will show up in your pictures… the only memories you’ll still have when others fade away) We valued friendly and flexible just as highly as quality of product and got more than what we paid for. Now Bryan and his family are new friends of ours and we are glad to have them be apart of our special memories.

  61. Bryan was our wedding photographer, and he was wonderful. Not only was he incredibly nice and easygoing, but he knew *exactly* what he was doing – something you just can’t be sure about with other photographers. Wedding pictures were really important to us, so we decided to go with one of the more “professional” photographers even though he was also one of the more expensive. For the added cost (which was really only £300-500 more), you’re guaranteed someone who knows how to capture perfect images and knows how to make you look good. That’s priceless, and it’s well worth the money – especially if you’re going to one of the most beautiful locations on the planet.

    We received our pictures on CD within a couple weeks, along with a nice link to a private website where they were uploaded just a couple days after our wedding. Overall, we couldn’t be happier. If you’re looking for the best photographer on the island and want to make it easy on yourself, Bryan is the one.

  62. A special Thank you to Bryan for our wonderful wedding pictures. Its been almost a year and we still get excited while looking through our album! Bryan was extremely professional and fun to have at our event. We had some specific photo requests of certain people and he was able to get everyone. We are honored to have Bryan’s prints hanging in our house!

    We look forward to having Bryan photograph us again.

  63. Choosing a photographer for our destination wedding was a very important decision and we could not be happier that we chose Bryan, he was absolutely amazing on all levels and exceeded our expectations. He has a wonderful personality, great communication, was impressively prompt and is incredibly talented. Not only were the pictures phenomenal but he was such a joy to work with and made us feel so comfortable the entire time as he captured our perfect day. I would highly recommend him!

  64. We were lucky enough to have Bryan shoot our wedding ceremony this past July on Magens bay. He was phenomenal! The quality and colour of the pictures is beyond any wedding photos I’ve ever seen… and he’s a really nice, easy going guy that just tried to stay outta the way and get some beautiful shots. Our family and friends were blown away! And he got them posted online for everyone to view in just a few days! I would definitely recommend paradise pictures and Bryan to any couple looking for a great photographer!

  65. Simply Amazing. I was just married last saturday (May 15th, 2010) and we booked bryan for 3 hours, part at the hotel, part at the site, and finished up at the reception. All I wanted from my wedding is for my guests to be happy, and to have amazing pictures. He fulfilled every wish I had that day. I got a copy of my pictures yesterday in a link form and I will have the disk shortly. The pictures turned out so well, that here, less than 24 hours after seeing them, I had to write a review. He’s so relaxed and doesn’t make you feel like you’re posing. It’s simple and breathtaking photos from start to finish.

    This is coming from me, who can find nothing good about a photo of myself, and I couldn’t find one that he took that I didn’t like. I can’t speak for other people in the area, but I wouldn’t have traded Bryan for the world.

    Outstanding work. He really made my day that much more special. I now have incredible pictures that will hold better memories than my mind can ever recreate.

    The price is well within reasonably and honestly, for the quality of his work, I would have paid even more than I did.

    Thank you Bryan,

    Vania and Jordan

  66. Bryan was great & our pictures are amazing. He was so easy to work with and made us feel so comfortable. We will definitely hire him again to shoot family pictures.

  67. We had both our engagement and wedding photographs done by Bryan. Both sets and sessions were fantastic! Better than we could have expected. I highly recommend Bryan. It’s well worth the money! We have amazing photos that will last forever and just looking at them transports us back to our amazing wedding day.

  68. Photography was the one wedding service I really cared about getting right, and Bryan was amazing. He was very responsive and flexible, his photography was gorgeous and he got all the shots we wanted (posed and candid), he was unobtrusive, and his prices were very reasonable. He went above and beyond; he waited in the bar until we had our first dance so he could take pictures of it. He was very nice.

  69. Let’s face it – professional photography is expensive. but Bryan has a well run business. Bryan is sweet & efficient in all the planning details. He and his assistant were great to work with at the wedding & reception. Lloyd is a great guy and creative photographer. You will be very happy.

  70. We chose Bryan Photography because of of his portfolio. We were very impressed with the creativity used in his photographs. I could picture our wedding photos becoming artwork in our house. They are a bit more expensive than other photographers, but his work is unique and professional. Bryan was our main photographer and he was so much fun to work with. He also photographed our welcome party picnic with all of our guests the day before (typically rehearsal dinner coverage). Most of our guests didn’t even know he was there! Great way to get some amazing candid shots. On our wedding day we felt relaxed and not awkward! If you’ve ever had that moment where a photographer tells you to kiss and hold it, it’s awkward! He was really good at capturing the random moments and going with the flow of the day. He also dealt with both of our large families incredibly well. I can’t wait to see our pictures.
    Bryan makes it very easy to fill out their forms, sign contracts, and make payments with their online client portal. Living in Louisiana and having a wedding in California can make things challenging. Online payments and online forms made the process much easier!
    I highly recommend Bryan and his team of Photographers for your wedding or engagement pictures!

  71. We had an overall great experience with Bryan and his photographers, especially Lloyd, who became a critical part of our wedding. While certainly not the least expensive option, these guys put together a great product and provide a ton of expert advice throughout the planning. The final photos were top notch, we’ll treasure them for the rest of our lives.

  72. Working with Bryan and his Photographers was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. They are absolute experts at their craft and we are so very pleased with the pictures they created for us. Their studio manager Al;ex is a pleasure to work with. He assists throughout the entire planning process and is there to answer ANY question at ANY time! Even before we officially booked with bryan, both Lloyd and our photographer Danny were so patient and kind with us to ensure we felt that we were making the correct choice in photographers. Danny took the time to talk to us personally about his artistic style and approach. During the planning process, Bryan made every step easy and smooth, and made sure every tiny detail was covered so the photographers wouldn’t miss a thing! The day of the wedding, Lloyd and Danny were so professional and creative and made everyone feel at ease while capturing beautiful moments the entire time. They even stayed to hang out at the reception AFTER their scheduled time was up—now that is a sign that they love what they do! We feel so fortunate to have had such a top notch team working for us. When all is said and done, wedding pictures are all that remain, and Bryan’s photographers are the pros that will make sure those images are perfection!

  73. Bryan was absolutely fantastic, both in the run up to our wedding and on the day itself. He was both friendly and unobtrusive, capturing beautiful shots from home in the morning until our first dance as a married couple. The photographs capture very real moments from our day, and looking back over them really takes us both back. The expressions and emotions he captures in his photography are incredible. Bryan’s organisation made the formal photography a very straightforward (and most importantly speedy!) part of the day, allowing us to get on with enjoying ourselves! He’s such a friendly, positive and warm person to share your wedding day with. Bryan really listened to what we wanted and captured exactly that in our wedding photographs. We cannot recommend him highly enough; he shared the most important day of our lives with us and yet allowed us to retain the intimacy of those most special parts of the day.

  74. “When planning for our wedding we met quite a few photographers and to be honest a lot of them were very professional but were also rather serious about their work which is fine if you like that sort thing. However us being us we wanted to have a laugh and feel comfortable with the photographer as they would be with us at some rather intimate moments on our wedding day. When we met Bryan we found him very warm and funny which was exactly what we were looking for. On the day he was exactly the same, we felt comfortable adorning some romantic poses without feeling embarrassed or silly as perhaps we would have with some of the more “serious” photographers. Basically if you want a guy who can take cracking photos and have a laugh with then Bryan is your guy!

    Thank you so much for capturing our day the way you did.”

  75. We immediately knew who we wanted as the photographer on our day as Bryan was the photographer for our bridesmaid’s wedding the year before and we loved his reportage style. Bryan captured all of the special moments of our day in a relaxed style and managed the whole process with warmth and humour with many of our guests also commenting on how great he was. We’re delighted with our pictures. The reportage photographs capture all the special moments of the day and our posed shots are simply stunning to the point we can’t choose which ones to frame and have added many extra pages into our album as we want to keep them all! Thanks Bryan, we’ll be sure to recommend you!

  76. We asked Bryan to photograph our wedding, having been so impressed with the beautiful pictures he took of our friends’ wedding. Your photographer spends one of the most important days of your life with you, and you couldn’t ask for a better person to be a part of it than Bryan. From getting ready with the bridesmaids (where worries about the weather were pushed away by Bryan’s humour) through to a treasured private moment in the grounds, Bryan’s pictures captured the colour and fun of our wedding day perfectly. In fact – there are so many wonderful photographs it is proving impossible to fit them into one album! We would (and do!) recommend Bryan to any couple planning their wedding.

  77. Bryan exceeded our expectations when we first saw the images taken of our wedding day. The natural shots are just lovely and each of the posed photos are special to us, especially as most of them are informal, unposed and a little bit cheeky! I still find myself looking through our photos even all these months later, it is hard to choose our favourites and there are many of them in frames dotted around the house. Bryan really captured those special moments of the day and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

  78. We used Wedding Photography by Bryan for our wedding at Quarry Bank Mill in September. Bryan was excellent all day, making us and our guests feel completely at ease and taking really natural photographs which is exactly what we wanted. Bryan had a superb skill of catching expressions on people’s faces at the perfect moment and we are so pleased he was there to photograph our day. We had a bit of an usual wedding day, as the bride only got out of hospital the day before the wedding after a serious illness, and Bryan was very patient and accommodating in these testing circumstances and spent the day getting as many photos as possible to make these easier later on. We would highly recommend Bryan as a wedding photographer and many of our guests have commented on how good the photographs are. Plus, we loved the final copy of the photos when it arrived in a special wooden box and usb, a great lasting memory of the day.

  79. I always knew that I wanted natural reportage style wedding photos, so when I came across Wedding Photography by Bryan, I knew that Bryan was the photographer for us. Bryan was so friendly and easy to chat to, happy to discuss all aspects of our day and answer all of my (sometimes very stupid) queries! bryan came early on our wedding morning and made me and my maids feels very at ease and relaxed- to a point where we were not even aware he was taking photographs of us while we got ready. He blended in perfectly with our guests all day- and captured the joy and happiness on everyone’s faces. No details were missed by Bryan, the whole day was beautifully shot – and everyone commented on what a lovely guy he was. We have a wonderful album of natural photos which we are able to relive the day and we will treasure forever. Bryan is highly recommended- look no further as you would not find a better photographer than Bryan. Thanks again for the perfect collection of wedding photos from our day! Love Collette and Matt x

    I’ve had a great experience with The Pros so far. Very professional and quick to follow up with email questions that I’ve had. It feels great to know that someone is on my team 🙂 I’m anticipating professional and inspired wedding photos on my big day!

    The Pros often hold showcases which is a great opportunity to meet with the photographers and videographers and view their work. I met with 3 different photographers and chose Neil, who’s work looked amazing (plus he’s hysterical). It’s really important to find a photographer who you like as a person because you want to make sure they really understand you and what you want for your day. Which is what I’m getting with Neil. Their showcase is definitely something to attend whether you book with them or not!

    I have been in constant contact with Kelly since I originally sent a request for more information a month ago. She answered all my questions and gave really good advice for my small backyard wedding. She did not push to sell me more than I needed instead she offered to adjust my selections to suit my needs and my budget. I chose the Classic Photography session which includes 8hrs and all rights to the photos plus prints for an extremely reasonable price compared to the other options out there. I also chose the Simplicity Dj package with the mini set up upgrade, I have the Dj for 4 hours which is all I needed. Both photographer and Dj keep in great contact with you and make sure they understand your exact needs to be sure that your wedding day goes according to plan! The best part of all is that my fiancé and I are extremely strapped for cash since we have family events that have shrunk our budget, I explained to Kelly that I would need to remove services and asked if there was anything I could do just to get a little closer to our budget. She immediately contacted her manager and they worked with me until we reached a price that was perfect for us. I would recommend them for any bride and groom who want the best of the best in customer service and quality services. No one offers a better price for the quality of services you receive. Thank You so much Pros for making my wedding everything I wanted for the budget I had!!!

    I had Victoria W. for our photography. She was the most amazing photographer and gal to have around the whole day. She did plenty of detail shots as well as all the family photos and even helped me (the bride) in times of bustle trouble! She went well beyond the photographer’s duty and made me feel relaxed and yet kept up the pace so our timeline was manageable. I highly recommend HER for photography. The Pros, where she is from, I am very pleased with the photography arrangement on the website — it’s only been a week sine my wedding and I can view and order photos online before I receive my digital copies on a disc. I am very satisfied with the photography service from The Pros and highly recommend that you go to one of their meet-and-greets to see which photographer suits your style and most of all your personality. I am starting to receive many compliments on the photos on Facebook and it makes me feel especially happy that I went with a professional for my wedding photos. Brides, do not skimp on a professional photographer–they will snap things for you thoroughly (family shots, cameos, kids, cakes, dresses, rings, etc.) so you can primp, socialize and be fabulous!

    The Pros – Photography responded with the following comments:
    Thank you so much for the kind words- so happy to hear that you truly enjoyed your experience with Victoria and The Pros. And you are right on in your recommendation- professional photography is absolutely the way to go! Best wishes, Hugh Riley, Vice President of Production

    Kim from The Pro’s was just AMAZING!!! She captured some truly great moments. She took pictures of so many details without me having to tell her which and she just knew what to do! She got some great photos of us getting ready, ceremony shots and fantastic family shots. And the best part, is when the reception started, she was so unobtrusive, I barely noticed her and were shocked when we saw our pictures!!! She took so many candid shots we squealed and said that we needed A LOT more walls to be able to frame ALL the “frame worthy” pictures she took. We had an outdoor wedding at night and I’m sure the lighting isn’t ideal for a photographer for an outdoor wedding. There was no obnoxious flash and she never once interrupted the fun, she was quick and just simply amazing. We wanted small mom and pop family businesses/vendors with our wedding. But we decided to go to a big national company for photography cause we didn’t really have a lot of referrals to go by. And it paid off. We got married at a historical house and the night before the wedding, the facility manager called me and emailed me saying that she has all the certificates of insurance, etc from all the vendor, but she needed new ones saying that the venue itself would be an “additionally insured”. Most places are cool with just proof of your have insurance. Very few places require you to list “Historical home of Miami blah blah” as a specific person on a document. Anyways, I called the Pro’s frantic at 4:30pm. (I mean, the venue could have told me this 2 weeks before? ya know?) Anyways, I called frantically at 4:30 and The Pro’s handled it. I would recommend them to anyone I know!

    Thank you so much for the kind words- so pleased to hear that Kim took such great care of you and went above and beyond to make your day so memorable, and so happy that we were able to help you with the insurance issue so quickly! Best wishes to you, Hugh Riley, Vice President of Production

    We worked with Sarah from the Pros and she was wonderful! It was very easy going through The Pros. We were not able to meet our photographer in person until the day of the wedding because we lived abroad but she showed up to the wedding exactly on time, completely prepared and was very nice! The Pros also provided a wedding advisor who helped address questions and concerns via email through the planning process which was great. There was a time or two where we never got a reply to an email we sent to the photographer, but she followed up with everything well in advance of the wedding and everything was great the day of the wedding. The value of the Pros packages were fantastic, the service was professional and easy to use, and we’re ecstatic with how the photos turned out.

    We had Justin and Carole as our photographers for our wedding in York, PA. They were both amazing!! Our original photographer actually happened to be sick the day of our wedding, but The Pros sent a replacement, Justin, who was so good! He was very flexible, and met us and my girls at the house where we were getting ready. He had such creative ideas for our pictures and when we saw them when we got back from our honeymoon, we were both so happy with them! Carole was also great – she had to deal with my husband and his 8 groomsmen and did so with such ease. We are so happy with the pictures from our ceremony. Both of our photographers captured such good moments throughout the ceremony and our reception. They used the golf course where our wedding was held at to take unique pictures with our whole bridal party. When we got back from our honeymoon, the pictures were already edited and uploaded for us to see. We also got all of our pictures on dvd within 10 days of our wedding. I am so happy we have the option to reprint any of our pictures that we want! We still have to create our album and choose the prints we want but I’m sure it will be exactly as we want it! The pros was a fabulous choice that I highly recommend for a wedding photgrapher!!

    The Pros – Photography responded with the following comments:
    Hi Jessica. Thank you so much for your great review. We are thrilled to have Carole and Justin represent our photography service.

    I haven’t had my wedding yet but I wanted to comment on the easy of booking and the experience I have had so far with The Pros. I found them on Wedding Wire and thought with over 700 reviews they were worth a shot. I contacted the advisor for my area and she responded immediately. I told her my needs and wants and she was able to book me into a Meet and Greet of photographers and DJs within a week. The Meet and Greet was GREAT! She gave a few suggestions on who to speak with based on what I told her I wanted. We were able to book our photographer and DJ all in one night, receive a great discount and couldn’t be happier! I’m even more excited for the big day. More to come after the wedding..

    Thank you so much for the kind words- we’re so happy to hear that you have truly enjoyed your experience thus far and that the showcase event was such a wonderful time! Looking forward to helping make your day a completely magical one. Thank you, Hugh Riley, Vice President

    We used The Pros Photography service in Austin, Tx. Our original photographer was injured four days before our wedding, but staff from The Pros contacted us right away and had a number of alternate photographers available to choose from. I was obviously upset about the situation but the team at The Pros were so supportive and assisted me in selecting an alternate photographer, Michael. The second I spoke to Michael on the phone he put me at ease and lowered my stress level about this last minute change. He was so organized and professional and was a pleasure to work with. The day of, he got every shot we asked for and more! Michael really captured the essence of our wedding and got some great candid shots which was so important to us. He really made the experience about us and I am so please with the quality of the pictures we will have to cherish for the rest of our lives! I am so pleased I went with The Pros, as they were able to smoothly facilitate finding me a different photographer at the last minute. I would highly recommend their services to any couple.

    The Pros – Photography responded with the following comments:
    Hi Grace. Thank you for your great review. I’m thrilled to hear Michael filled in nicely. While emergency situations are rare, we always remain prepared to handle these situations. Thank you again! Hugh Riley, Vice President

    I am so happy we chose to work with The Pros for our wedding photos! Not only are they reasonably priced, but the work they do is great as well. The pictures came out even better than I imagined! Hugh was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was efficient and captured every important moment perfectly and with a variety of photographic styles. We were able to enjoy our entire ceremony without being pulled for pictures constantly and he continued to capture amazing moments throughout the reception!

    Thank you so much for the kind words- Hugh is a wonderful part of our team, and we are so proud to have him represent The Pros. So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your entire experience. Best wishes!

    We are absolutely thrilled with Danny from the The Pros. He did an amazing job photographing our wedding and the pictures turned out so beautiful. He was very nice, cheerful, and fun to work with. He listened to exactly what I wanted and the pictures reflect that. Angie, our representative with the Pros was also very helpful and was always quick to respond to my emails. This was an amazing company and our experience with them was nothing but wonderful. We couldn’t be happier with our pictures and the quality of service. Thank you, Danny!

    We used The Pros in poughkeepsie, NY and our photographer was Ashlee S. We were VERY happy with the service we received! I was able to contact people in the pros office at almost anytime to answer my questions or concerns. A week before our wedding, we were put in touch directly with Ashlee who was so great and friendly. She was very communicative and open to ideas and suggestions. On the actual day, she was great taking some great photo ops, but also totally open to our ideas. She was great at keeping on time with the flow of the day. Finally, I loved how my pictures are all ready available to viewing online and I can share them with friends and family! We are very happy with the results of the pictures and are looking forward to helping to create our album.

    The Pros – Photography responded with the following comments:
    Thank you Janice for your fantastic review on Ashley and all of us at The Pros. We are dedicated to making sure our couple’s experience is perfect from beginning to end. Thank you again! Congratulations! Hugh Riley, Vice President

    I loved being able to use one company for 3 vendors: DJ, photography, and videography. All 3 were extremely professional and polite, and worked well together. Because they all had worked together in the past, they were able to do some unique things that most weddings don’t get. My DJ Michael was very nice and accommodating even the last minute change in a song. He was flexible when we would talk, as my work hours don’t always make it easy to talk on the phone. All my guests lived him and how easy-going he was. My photographer Jim was great. He understood my dislike for posing for photos, and only took a minimal amount of the ones he knew I would want. He was very good at capturing the insanity that was my reception, and I can’t wait to see how everything came out. My videographer Paula was so nice, even carried my bouquet for me when we were walking from the beach to the lighthouse to do more photos so I could hold up the bottom of my dress. She was great at always being at the right spot at the right time to capture everything, including the groomsmen tossing the football around on the beach. I can’t wait to see the video and the raw footage she gives to us. I’m so extremely happy I used this company. Even the wedding coordinator Leigh Ann was great with contacting me when I first wanted to use them, and inviting me to a showcase to find someone I liked, and even sending me profiles for additional videographer when I didn’t find one I liked at the showcase. They were great to work with and I would highly recommend then to anyone in need of just one or all three services.

    The Pros – Photography responded with the following comments:
    Thank you so much for the kind words- we are so pleased to hear that Michael, Jim, and Paula were so accommodating and made your day so easy and memorable, and that Leighann helped coordinate everything you needed seamlessly. We wish you many years of health and happiness! Thank you, Hugh Riley, Vice President of Production

  81. NANCY & ZACH

    “I’ll be the one to say it… our wedding pictures are AWESOME. We sit and stare at every detail of every photo, every day. The aesthetic of our wedding was so important to us from day one, so picking a photographer who could capture that, was the first on our list! People kept telling us… ‘You have 9 months to plan your wedding, and 9 hours to photograph it’. Katie and Max were the first we found, and as we scoured the internet, we kept coming back to them. They were instantly warm and professional, and we felt an immediate connection. They felt like family! On the day of, they were so calming, and we had people ask us if we even had photographers there. Their talent is incredible, and we came out of it feeling so lucky, and with the most amazing documentation of the best day of our lives.”

    BECCA & ANDREW

    “A HUGE thank you to Katie and Max for their amazing work capturing our wedding day. Planning our wedding on the North Shore of Boston from San Francisco, I reached out to a number of different photographers and it wasn’t until I contacted Dreamlove that I felt like I really connected with two people, who wanted to help make our day special and truly reflect us. Katie and Max are down to earth, professional and fun to be around. They took the time to get to know us, listen to our preferences and help us maximize our time together and with family and friends on our wedding day. Most importantly, they are great at what they do and an awesome team. We were thrilled with our wedding pictures and have received the most wonderful feedback from family, friends and co-workers.”

    JESSIE & CHRIS

    When we got engaged, we knew that finding the right photographers was going to be an important — if not the most important — aspect of wedding-planning. We loved Katie & Max’s work as soon as we saw it, but it wasn’t until meeting them that we knew they were the ones we wanted to have document our big day. From the start, they were able to strike a perfect balance between laid-back and professional — something that was really important in allaying any concerns we might have had about spending our wedding day with two perfect strangers. We were beyond pleased with their work; the images are beautiful and completely representative of the vibe of our wedding. Especially in looking back at how quickly the whole day went, we’re so grateful for the work that Katie & Max did of documenting not just the big, important moments of the day, but also the little ones, and all the details that made the day so special and amazing.”

    KELSIE & DOUG

    “We LOVE our wedding photos! Max and Katie and so talented, and there really are no words to describe how much we enjoyed working with them. While planning, we looked at what felt like hundreds of photographers’ websites. When we clicked on Dreamlove’s website, we fell in love! The photos were so beautiful, so unique, they really stood out from everything else we’d seen. Max and Katie were so warm and supportive the day of our wedding, and good-naturedly dealt with the chaos of a sudden thunderstorm, which meant moving our outdoor ceremony to the barn at the last minute! Despite the rain, our wedding stands out as the most amazing, memorable day. It was so full of love and support from friends and family, and Max and Katie contributed to a beautiful day, focused on what mattered most: marrying each other. Just days after the wedding, they posted photos on their blog. Our friends and family still talk about how lovely the photos are and how much they enjoyed being around our photographers for the day!”

    EMILY & ADRIAN

    “Katie and Max were the most professional and personable photographers we could have hoped for to document our wedding weekend. They were at the venue early to scope out all the locations and ideal shots, and they were a constant (but totally unobtrusive) presence to ensure every special detail was captured. As a result they documented all of the nuances, beauty, and humorous and loving moments of our celebration. The photos really express a gorgeous, dreamlike quality, which is of course exactly how we experienced the event ourselves! We cannot rave enough about how talented and terrific they both are, and we can’t wait to have them back in a couple of months for our baby’s first photo shoot!”

    KRISTEN & DREW

    “As soon as we laid eyes on Katie and Max’s previous work, we knew we wanted to hire them to photograph our wedding. We absolutely loved their natural documentary style of photography, and their incredible eye for the little things that make for very memorable pictures. On the actual day of our wedding, they were consistently professional, accommodating, unobtrusive, and yet omnipresent. We couldn’t have been more happy — it was almost like having two more friends come to our wedding who happened to be fantastically talented with images.”

    CHRISTINE & TED

    “We are back from Northern California and just received your package in the mail. You two work incredibly hard. I wanted to thank you for such an amazing job. Everybody has been complimenting me on the photos – a reflection of your expertise and professionalism. Your ability to make us feel comfortable on our wedding day was very special.
    Thank you for everything.”

    LOUISA & ALEX

    “From beginning to end Katie and Max were wonderful to work with. They have a lot of expertise, knowledge, and experience but were still very open to what we wanted, providing their professional opinion to help us in our decision making. Their enthusiasm for our wedding and our vision was always appreciated and we had a lot of fun working with them on the actual day. Many of our guests commented on how inconspicuous they were, while also noticing how they were always around to catch the important moments. Our photos came out better than we could have imagined and we are so happy that Katie and Max were a part of our day!”

    NICOLE & WINSLOW

    “We can not tell you how much we love every one of the pictures. I have gotten so many wonderful comments and wanted to share some with you–”Omg!!!! The photos were amazing!!!”, ”Loved the photographers”, ”WOW! I just sat here and had my coffee and watched the entire slideshow with a smile on my face. What a FUN night and those pictures are incredible!”, ”These are the most beautiful wedding photos I’ve ever seen! Brings back every minute from that magical weekend”, ”These are some GREAT pictures”, ”Those have to be the most spectacular photos. What an incredible job they did for you. If there was one I really liked, there was always another I liked even better.” -Nicole (who sent us quotes from guests at the wedding!”)

    LESLIE & JON

    “Aside from finding a venue, photography was our highest priority and we couldn’t have been happier with the choice we made. Katie and Max were easy to talk with and were very communicative and professional throughout the entire process. We went with an engagement shoot, which helped us get to know them even more and become familiar with their shooting styles. It also made us more comfortable in front of the camera, which helped our wedding day photos look more relaxed and natural! Speaking of wedding day photos, they were absolutely AMAZING and truly captured each moment perfectly. It was like reliving the day all over again. While Katie and Max were by our side the entire day, they were never obtrusive and it ended up feeling like we had a couple extra friends at our wedding. Magical is the word we have heard most when describing the photographs and we couldn’t agree more.”

  82. I have never written a review before but I felt compelled to do so after my stay at Orocco Pier Hotel.

    First of all, I would say that the service staff in the bar during the evening, and the staff serving breakfast in the morning were very good. The bar was packed at night, with people staying at the hotel and people going to Orocco as a destination pub/restaurant. The staff were friendly even though they were kept on their toes constantly. Food took a long time to arrive every night, but we didn’t mind as we were catching up with family and friends. The food served in the hotel was inconsistent; it was either very good or not edible.

    We were attending a wedding and were looking forward to our 3 night visit to Scotland. Unfortunately, our accommodation was a shared basement apartment outside the hotel. We spent three nights there and between both families we were changed £950 for the privilege of having only one bathroom! We had to walk down some very steep steps to the apartment at night and it did not have an outside light. We had three young children and it was not a safe decent to the front door!

    On one occasion, leaving the hotel to go back to our apartment, we had to walk pass a street fight, lots of police around and lots of drunks! Not a nice experience for us or the kids!

  83. You’ll want to remember your wedding day forever, and a great way to do this is by hiring a fantastic wedding photographer. This section is full of wedding photographers from up and down the country, all offering their own unique service and style.

    1. “Bryan is an extremely talented and committed photographer, he was the perfect choice for our wedding late last year. His passion for photography is abundant and he took a genuine interest in our history as a couple, taking the time to get to know us and explore our personalities, so that he could capture the best possible images. He was attentive and enthusiastic on both our pre-wedding shoot and on the wedding day, resulting in our stunning photos that incorporated his detailed and modern style, which we couldn’t be more thrilled with. His gift captured the raw emotions of the day from tears through to roaring laughter. We would recommend him without hesitation and he was without a doubt one of our favourite suppliers. Thank you, Bryan.”

  84. Can You Be Fined for Posting a Negative Wedding Vendor Review?

    POed with your venue, photographer, florist or any of your other wedding vendors? Read this before you even think about posting a dissatisfied review to warn other brides!

    Stressed bride

    The Union Street Guest House in Hudson, New York incited a firestorm of controversy this week when reports surfaced that they were fining newlyweds $500 for every negative review posted online. According to their website archive, the warning (which has since been removed from the hotel’s website) also applies to any wedding guests who write unfavorable reviews, as well as anyone who stays there to attend nuptials at another venue. If they remove it on Yelp or elsewhere, then the bride and groom get their money back.

    Their management’s reasoning is that “your guests may not understand what we offer — therefore we expect you to explain that to them.” As an old but restored building, the rooms are designed to look old in an artistic “vintage” way and they contain “hip, period furniture that you would see in many design magazines” so Marriott or Hilton-frequenting guests should steer clear.

    Customers have been venting their frustrations about the policy on Yelp for the past year (rightfully so!), but it wasn’t until media outlets like Reddit and The New York Post got involved that things really got heated. The hotel’s attempt to suppress criticism ended up backfiring, big time: Over 900 one-star reviews have been posted on Yelp in the past two days, many of which have been deleted.

    USGH owner Chris Wagoner responded to the backlash in a Facebook post, stating that “Including the fine for negative reviews as part of our policy was a mistake. That’s not the type of business that we run. It was a case of a joke gone very, very bad.”

    However, posts like this one argue otherwise:

    negative wedding vendor reviews

    After being alerted to this issue, we investigated further: Is this an isolated case or are couples unknowingly putting themselves at risk by airing their grievances online? We opened the conversation up to vendors and lawyers, and here are what a few had to say:

    bride ipad

    Tom Clarke of Thomas Robert Clarke Photography:

    “For what it is worth, I was recently voted one of the Top 10 Best in Philly and have effectively been #1 on Yelp in my region for over four years. As a vendor who works harder than anyone else to ensure customer satisfaction, I have a real issue with anyone who builds clauses into their contract prohibiting the couple’s freedom of speech. If I screw things up royally, the couple has a right to spread the word. If I’ve done nothing wrong and they are nitpicking minor grievances, then I have the ability to challenge their claims. Frankly, the online reviewing community has an amazing filter to see such nonsense for what it is.”

    Aviva Samuels of Kiss the Planner:

    “Any company that uses a clause of this nature appears to have something to fear, and it’s most likely because they don’t stand behind their service…What wedding vendors should realize is that although unpleasant to read, negative feedback can allow them to learn and improve, moving forward. A good vendor will seek your input throughout the process, starting from the time you first meet with them and continuing even after the wedding has ended. Check your contract to see if they seem more focused on covering their behinds than being fair to both sides. If the verbiage is defensive in nature and indicates an overabundance of escape routes, that could be a red flag of trouble to come. Even if a contract doesn’t clearly state that negative reviews are prohibited, you certainly don’t want to work with a vendor who doesn’t seem like they truly have your best interests at heart. Use your intuition as a guide to how things will go down the road. If they don’t want to hear what you have to say, then chances are it will reflect in the quality of their work and yes, you may have something negative to say about it.

    Leann Moore of Whimsical Floral Design:

    “Take the time to read the entire contract from beginning to end. It’s okay to ask the vendor to clarify any areas that don’t make sense.Take note of any and all areas that refer to fees, charges and costs. There should be a section outlining fees that might occur after the wedding and the circumstances where these fees will arise. If you see anything related to posting reviews, I would run the other way. Vendors can sue for negative feedback if the review is defamation of character, but that only applies if your review is false in any way or you make claims that can’t be proven. So clauses such as this are only there because they most likely know their service is not up to par. It’s a disgusting practice and I can assure you that most of us wouldn’t dream of doing such a thing.”

    David Reischer, attorney and the founder of LegalAdvice.com:

    “A ‘non-disparagement’ clause in a contract prohibits a party from leaving a negative review for the performance of services rendered. This inclusion in contracts between wedding planners, photographers, caterers and a whole host of other vendors involved in the wedding event industry is becoming much more frequent. This is due to the proliferation of online review websites that may detrimentally influence the ability to acquire future new customers that may discover these negative comments…Essentially, the clause prohibits a bride from leaving negative reviews, ratings or comments even if they are unhappy with the services rendered. The damages associated with the breach of such a clause may lead to substantial monetary damages against the aggrieved bride. Many courts from multiple jurisdictions have recently allowed for the enforcement of these type of clauses in such service agreements between wedding professionals and brides. It is incumbent on the bride to either read the contract in its entirety herself or even better, to have a licensed legal professional to review the agreement in advance of the wedding and certainly prior to execution of any documents.

    Kendra Stephen, attorney at Supra Legal Group:

    “I am the lawyer business owners usually call to have their false reviews removed from the Internet. My clients are constantly asking me about adding a clause that prohibits negative online reviews, because they are afraid it will hurt their reputation. I always tell them that they cannot stop a client from telling the truth. However, they can add a penalty for posting false negative reviews (defamation), because that is an actual claim they can file a lawsuit for in court. Another thing to keep in mind is that the provision in their contract only applies to the bride and groom — it doesn’t stop their family, friends and wedding guests from posting about the company.”

    NEGATIVE VENDOR REVIEWS
    Excellent article! I’m glad someone is covering this very important topic. Reading the contract is very important as some unethical vendors put in these ‘no negative review’ clauses. If you see one you should run for the hills. If you have a vendor problem, I’ve only found Wedding Certified to be helpful in resolving the issue. BBB doesn’t really do anything. I found this out the hard way after my sister’s wedding photographer left town with her photos. Took awhile and some legal muscle but she eventually recovered the photos. Good luck brides!

  85. The photographer is one of the biggest decisions of your wedding and we honestly can’t recommend wedding photography by Bryan enough! It’s the one part of your day that you will keep returning to, and when we look through the beautiful photographs I’m so glad we found Bryan. I was slightly overwhelmed at some wedding shows that had so much choice in this area, so when we met him photographing a friends wedding we knew we had found the guy! The photos on his website speak for themselves, but remember, chances are you will spend more time with your photographer than some guests. Bryan’s relaxed, friendly and totally professional nature was the perfect match for us and we had so much fun with him. I’m sure once you’ve met him you’ll feel exactly the same way, and when your stunning photographs arrive, you’ll know you made the right choice! Thanks again Bryan for being a huge part of our day and capturing it so beautifully, we will treasure our photographs forever xxx

  86. Bryan was amazing! Me and my husband are not the type of people who enjoy having our photos taken but Bryan helped us to feel incredibly relaxed, made us laugh and actually helped us to enjoy having our photos taken! We have received our wedding photos today and I am so so happy with them! He has captured our wedding day entirely from me and my bridesmaids getting ready to the start of the night dancing! He has captured the whole of the day and been able to tell it like a story through photos! Most of the time you don’t know Bryan is there but he is also really great at gathering everyone together and getting guest of all ages to smile and be involved in photos. The thing we wanted more than anything was for our photos to be as natural as possible and to capture the fun and emotions of the day, which Bryan has done perfectly! Please do not look any further if you are wanting an incredible wedding photographer! I really couldn’t recommend him any higher! Bryan thank you so much again! Xx

  87. Finding the right photographer was one of the hardest parts of planning our wedding. The photos are the lasting memories that we can look back on forever, so wanted them to be just right. We weren’t local to our venue and came across Bryan’s portfolio after weeks of searching online and at wedding fairs, and looking at the photos we both knew the natural style and finishing were exactly what we wanted and were more suited to us than any others we’d looked at.
    We met Bryan for an engagement shoot before the wedding, and he won us over straight away with his calm, friendly approach and genuine love of his job. During the big day itself, he might as well have been an old friend and one of the guests. Bryan somehow managed to completely blend in to the background yet still capture every single moment from the perfect angle, right through from the bridal preparations to the first dance. We had stroppy kids, deaf old people, and plenty of people who hate having their pictures taken, and Bryan took it all in his stride with a smile. His knowledge, enthusiasm and attitude made even the tricky family photos easy and fun to be a part of.
    His calmness and guidance during our portrait photos took away any stress and nerves we had, and looking at the pictures afterwards prove that he’s got a great eye for a background and perfect angle.
    Our guests commented after the wedding on how good and relaxed our photographer was, and couldn’t wait to see the photos. His professionalism, enthusiasm, and contact before, during and after the wedding were great.
    I can’t recommend Bryan highly enough, and I’d definitely use him again if I need a photographer!

  88. A quick heads up to anyone getting married: the day goes SO quickly it’s unbelievable. It’s like a whirlwind! There are so many happy moments and smiling faces you want to remember but it’s just impossible when you’re so emotional and busy for the whole day! That’s why I was so keen to get a really good photographer who wouldn’t miss a moment. Bryan was the perfect man for the job. He came to my (the bride’s) home in the morning and, somehow amongst all the chaos and makeup, managed to make everyone feel so relaxed and at ease in his presence. He took beautiful natural shots as well as perfectly posed pictures to include every one of our nearest and dearest. He listened to everything I had asked for prior to the wedding and never let his smile fall. He was more like a guest than a hired man! I can not recommend him highly enough. All I can say is that if you choose to have your wedding photos taken by Will Hey photography, you will not be disappointed!

  89. Stacey and I spent a long time searching through the internet to find a photographer that we felt comfortable with. As a same sex couple we wanted someone with experience photographing same sex weddings and Bryan’s photographs were truly stunning. During our phone conversations Bryan was easy to talk to and we felt confident that he would capture all of the moments that we wanted to remember after the day had finished. On the day, Bryan arrived first at my parents’ house and wasted no time getting important shots of the dress, rings and accessories. Bryan was then kind enough to drive to our home where Stacey and her bridal party where getting ready to capture her special morning also. Throughout the day Bryan made us feel comfortable, relaxed and reduced our stress levels by knowing exactly what he was doing. It was a pleasure to have Bryan with us during our special day and our photographs are a true reflection of how happy and special our day was. The photographs were sent to us soon after the wedding, beautifully presented in a wooden box, which was a lovely surprise. We cannot recommend and thank Bryan enough!

  90. We had a wonderful day and Bryan helped to make it the calm and relaxed atmosphere that we wanted. Neither of us are ones to enjoy having our photos taken but Bryan helped us feel at ease. He captured the whole day perfectly, our guests commented on how friendly he was and how good the photographs were. Our photographs were sent to us in a beautiful wooden presentation box which we did not expect. It’s always hard to decide on a photographer for your wedding but all we can say is that we made the right choice and would highly recommend Will Hey photography. Many thanks again for your fantastic service.

  91. Bryan was fantastic on our wedding day, the consummate professional. He was so professional making us all feel at ease even when he was milling around us frantically getting ready. He was full of tips not only for getting great photographic results but also on how to manage my huge dress. Our photos are beautiful and always make me cry to look at. He managed to capture the emotion of the day so well, so many tears and lots of candid laughter shots. It was incredibly hard to choose which ones to put into an album – we wanted them all in! We will never be able to thank him enough for the amazing photos that help us to remember our special day. Definitely the best money we’ve ever spent.

  92. I read some advice shortly before choosing our photographer: “on the wedding day you have so many things but the next day you have three; a husband, a ring and photographs. So it makes sense to spend most time, effort and money on these.” We knew Bryan would be the perfect man for the job from our first phone consultation. He was far from daunted by the idea of two locations, rocky terrain, several lively dogs and unconventional timings. In fact, he made us feel like he was looking forward to the wedding as much as we were! On the day it’s self the heavens had opened, the ceremony location had changed and none of it mattered, the photos we have of this special day capture so much more than our faces, they hold every nervous, excited, joyful emotion. Everyone of our friends and family commented how fantastic Bryan was – even my very, very camera shy step mother! A tip for great photos – play articulate! Bryan also captured an amazing moment when my 86yr old Nan beat all others at croquet! Unfortunately, her health has declined since, but in that moment he captured the woman she always has been and will be in my eyes. Bryan helped make our day more than a wedding day, he made it special for every single person, which is exactly what we wanted. Bryan, thank you for all your hard work and advice, we are so glad we chose you!

  93. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but
    I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Hi, It’s just wordpress running Sela, nice simple platform and I like the look, I think it has some nice features for a photography web site and fits in well with my weddings.
      Good luck with your blog

      1. “Bryan is a fantastic photographer! He captured the energy and fun and laughter of our wedding day, seeing the photos we re-lived the day and saw so much that we had missed, it was amazing. Right from our first meeting Bryan made us feel completely comfortable and showed genuine interest in our ideas and plans for the big day. The pre-wedding photo shoot was the perfect way for us to get comfortable with the camera, laugh a lot and work out what worked best for us. Most importantly of all we absolutely LOVE our wedding photos, they capture so many special memories. We will treasure them forever. Thank you Bryan, we cannot recommend you highly enough. A truly innovative and inspirational photographer.”

  94. Hello, I have enjoyed looking through your wedding photography pictures. My wedding was last year and we booked a photographer that we found on facebook, she was quite cheap but the pictures are just ‘ok’ I wish i had booked a proper wedding photographer now, but there’s nothing I can do now.
