Kind Words from Clients

I work hard to build relationships with my wedding clients and I appreciate all the client reviews that my couples take the time to leave for my wedding photography and videography services. Here are just some of the kind words that I have received as an Essex Wedding Photographer for weddings in Essex and London.


John photographed our wedding and from our first meetings, engagement photoshoot, wedding day to the collection of our prints he was an absolute dream. John's enthusiasm and humour was contagious and a joy to have as our photographer (so enthusiastic in fact that when I arrived at the venue at 9:30 I was met by John immediately who had gotten there and completed the drone photography before any of us had even arrived!)

On our first meeting, months before our wedding, John asked about our plans for the day in more depth than I had ever considered and because we had had these discussions we were able to discuss the types of photos that we wanted more of - for myself this included pictures with my dad - and those we weren't fixated on having (in our case many posed pictures). I cannot stress enough that the communication with John was always excellent, even for the smallest of concerns - we always felt like a priority!

On our actual day we did not have the best organisation thanks to our venue who seemed to not even want to greet us and talk us through how the ceremony would go etc. I, as any bride would, found this quite upsetting, I mention this because John went above and beyond in his role to make sure the day went smoothly, to the extent that he coordinated things on my behalf with the venue which allowed me to calm down and actually enjoy getting ready. Though it sounds cliche John felt more like a friend than he did a photographer - which of course meant we relaxed more and our photos were more natural. His constant smile was undoubtably infectious and we loved all of his cheeky jokes throughout the day.

As for the photos themselves, John's shots from our day captured the candid, natural style that we had envisaged - our personal favourite being the confetti shots as they captured everyones expressions beautifully. Despite the day being long we were able to have a huge sequence of sublime photos from the very start of the day to the evening. We got our first look the very next day and thanks to the season of our wedding the pictures within a week.

We have just received our absolutely luxuriously packaged prints and framed photo included in the package we chose and we are so overwhelmingly pleased with them all, the presentation of them really made it feel so much more personal and special.

We wholeheartedly would not hesitate to recommend John as a photographer - he consistently went above and beyond of what we expected.

Thank you so much John!

Anna & Aran

All  we can say is oh my god! (screaming)- our photos look amazing! You truly have captured almost every feeling we had on the day. Looking at these photos allowed us to remember the most precious parts of our day and thanks to you we will have these moments forever.


John, you have been a dream, a cool calm person who managed to put Aran and I at ease on several occasions when emotions were running high. Thank you so so so much for everything you did, we can’t thank you enough for your hard work, patience and laughs! 


You are amazing at your work and you provide a true service with care and compassion - and if we had to do this all over again we would choose you. I would also like to tell you that I have never been to a wedding were some many guests/family complemented the photographer. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


Kirsty & Dan

We decided fairly late in the process to have a videographer at our wedding and chose John based on his work and the fact that he is a thoroughly nice guy

From start to finish he was brilliantly creative about with his suggestions for our video and photos, and captured the spirit and style of our wedding perfectly. He put us all at ease, guiding us through what to expect and how to avoid the camera nerves. He was absolutely brilliant with the little ones, and worked seamlessly with our photographer, we could not have asked for a better team.

The end result was a beautiful package of film and photos that made us all cry (and laugh) and was described on instagram as ‘like a movie’- what more could you want?! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend John for your special day.


Scarlett & Abby

Where do I begin! From start to finish, John has made us feel so comfortable. We had photos for our wedding day and wow just wow! From the first Zoom meeting we knew he was the one who HAD to be our photographer. John showed genuine interest and excitement in our big day and did everything to help us get the shots we wanted...John went to the greatest of lengths to make our day perfect. He even planned the whole afternoon out from what memorials we would shoot in front of and some of the most amazing backdrops.


I could not be happier and I would recommend him to absolutely any and everyone! I am so proud of our photos and can’t believe we have these for the rest of our lives. Beautiful, you can truly tell how much John loves his job and will do anything to ensure his clients are above and beyond happy. Thankyou once more John, we will treasure every single photo for the rest of our lives.

Megan & Tyler

Thank you so much. Our wedding film is absolutely perfect. You have done an amazing job.


Thank you so much for being part of our day, you were totally brilliant and we are so happy with the video it brought back good memories.


Emily & Reece

Myself and my fiance were lucky enough to have a shoot with John. We hadn't done anything like this before and we were really nervous!


As soon as we met John, he put us at ease and made us feel comfortable in his company which is of course key. This happened so naturally and the photos that John produced wowed us and made me feel really quite emotional.

We have these beautiful images that we really will treasure forever. Thank you John, you really are a talent!

Mandy & Scott

John is very professional. He walked us through the process and what we could expect from him on our big day.


On the day he made us feel very relaxed. We love the photos he took. Would highly recommend.


Leah & Charlie

I have been completely blown away by John's work. My wedding photos are truly beautiful. The care and attention to detail in John's work reflects in his pictures, I couldn’t be happier.

Shauney & Peter

John was brilliant from start to finish. A great eye for detail, rapid turn around of photos, and very settling. Captured the occasion, excellently.
