It is always nice when my clients spend the time to give me some feedback for my website. Here are some of my most recent ones.

Andy did a fantastic job of photographing our son's christening and capturing all the colour and the atmosphere of his special day. He took care to ensure all of our guests were photographed and told the story of the day - both the service and the garden party after - in pictures. We are really delighted and have had great feedback from friends who have seen the photos. Can't recommend Andy more highly.

Andy was very helpful pre our wedding ceremony. Our guests commented on how friendly he was at all times during the ceremony and photo sessions. His photos reflected our wishes with a mix of formal and informal photographs which captured the essence of the day.

What can I say .... Andy is committed to capturing those magic moments exactly as you would wish. He takes the time to understand exactly what your requirements are and goes the extra mile to deliver. I would have no reservation recommending him. At my sons christening he captured images I will treasure for the rest of my life and I was never aware he was snapping away. Great job!

Over the moon with the photos Andy took. It's was my daughter's baptism and the special moments were captured so well. Andy came to my house before the service and took excellent pictures there and he had great ideas. The pictures of the service were amazing, better than I could have wished for. He came to the reception too and was brilliant with my friends and family. I never would have never been able to capture those magical moments on my daughter's special day. The way Andy edited the photos have been done so well, in colour and black and white. Andy was relaxed, professional and not in "our faces" lol! I would highly recommend Andy, I would 100 % use him again and I can't thank him enough. Also I would like to thank his son who helped him out on the day. Thank you Andy for doing a great job and I will treasure the photos you took :0)

Excellent photographs taken in a fun and friendly way. 

Our photos were taken at locations recommended by Andy which was a beautiful blue bell wood which gave us some excellent images of our daughter. He then took us to a play park which I would have never considered for a professional photo shoot but again the photos were brilliant and really captured the fun our daughter was having without the usual posed photographs that children never seem to like being involved in. I would highly recommend Andy.

I approached Andy one professional to another requiring profile photos for my singing business. From the Start he was ever the pro! The time, date and venue of the shoot was all of my choosing. Andy was very accommodating and flexible. He arrived in very good time and was ready to roll very soon after. Although space was limited (my choice of venue,) he made use of every inch. I was able to perform and sing as usual - and Andy was snapping away using a variety of different equipment and tools! He was not in the least bit intrusive and had a brilliant personality and appropriate banter. He was very fast with initial "tasters" of the shoot and the finished articles were sent to me soon after. I am immensely happy with the results! A healthy mix of black and white with subtle colour which really suits my 1950's theme. I'm really proud of these pictures and I have no doubt they have directly contributed to an increase in bookings through my website. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone looking for a photographer. I've seen much of his other work and his dedication and how he clearly loves what he does shines through every time. Don't even think twice - Andy is your photographer!

We had our engagement/family shoot and wedding photography done by Andy. we warmed to him straight away he is amazing. Our photos came out beautiful, we couldn't have asked for anything more from him. My husband is not one for having his photo taken but Andy makes you feel at ease and comfortable and he admitted he quite enjoyed having his photo taken after all. We will definitely use Andy for any future shoots.

We had a family photo shoot with Andy a few days ago. With two small children (2 and 1), we were nervous whether it would be possible to keep them happy and entertained for the shoot, let alone whether we would manage to get any photos. Andy was brilliant from start to finish- completely professional at the same time as putting both children at ease, so much so that our youngest kept trying to have cuddles and photos with him! He kept them happy with new games and ideas which would get great photo opportunities as well. When we received the photos just a couple of days later, we were really pleased. So many lovely shots of them it's impossible to choose the best for framing! Thank you Andy! We will definitely be coming back for more photos and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any friends and family!

We gave Andy a slightly different challenge than usual; to come with us on one of our Sunday morning walks with our blonde collie, Jaden. The occasion was our 26th Wedding Anniversary (pictures), and the venue was the woodland surrounding Minley, where we were married 26 years ago. With a clear blue sky, on a crisp Winter's morning, Andy captured the true essence of our love for each other and a place that remains very special in our hearts. Andy's easy-going style immediately put us at ease, for what was a most enjoyable walk... but don't just take my word for it, take a look at some of the photos that are published here, they say it all.
