this guy needs to be shouted about!

We asked to give a review, because this guy needs to be shouted about! From our first meeting it was very clear Lee wanted to get to know us as a couple and ensure he gave us exactly what we were after. On our special day, he blended into the background allowing us to feel very relaxed and comfortable from start to finish. The photos he has taken are beyond what we asked for and he even managed to arrange a photograph in a location we thought wasn’t possible! He captured moments we didn’t see on the day and we cannot stop looking at our photos! We highly recommend him for your special day, as he captured ours perfectly.

I don’t think I can put into words how fantastic Lee is!

I don’t think I can put into words how fantastic Lee is! We are a couple who don’t really like having our photo taken but Lee made us feel really comfortable from start to finish. Nothing was ever too much and we could ask him anything. The photos that we have are phenomenal and everyone has commented saying how amazing they are! Lee is highly recommended and was the best choice we could have possibly made for our wedding day. We could not be more pleased with our photos (that we had access to really quickly after the wedding) and cannot thank you enough Lee for all you have done from engagement shoot to the wedding day. You are amazing!

I look at the photos on my phone everyday, they are seriously amazing. It was a wonderful day and you have captured it beautifully.

We had around 100 guests and somehow he has managed to capture everyone

Lee was a pleasure to work with as a key supplier for our wedding day. From the first moment we met him at a wedding fair in Cheltenham we knew he was the photographer for us. Lee is not only amazing and an expert at what he does he is also a genuine and friendly person, and we knew having him around on the day would be like having another guest of ours. On the day itself Lee knew exactly what we wanted (from our email conversations and meeting) and he professionally got on with capturing all of the special moments from our day, and made everyone feel relaxed in the process. The main portrait photos are absolutely stunning but our favourites are those where we, and our guests, aren’t posing – the real photos and ones that truly capture the love and fun from the day. We had around 100 guests and somehow he has managed to capture everyone also. He was a joy to have around and it was sad to see him leave that evening. Lee, you’re a star and we will always recommend you!

It was clear that this isn’t just a job for Lee, it is a calling and a real passion

Lee was outstanding.

He offers a truly professional, high-quality service, and he is exceptionally amiable. From the moment we met him we were impressed with the style of his photographs and his relaxed yet professional manner.

Lee has been faultless throughout our experience. We felt that he took the time to get to know us and what we wanted. He blended seamlessly into the wedding party enabling him to take subtle shots which captured the essence our wedding day.

It was clear that this isn’t just a job for Lee, it is a calling and a real passion. Worth every penny!
