Steve exceeded the expectations we had of a wedding photographer beyond any measure. We had picked up from a bridal blog that a photographer is one of the first things that you should book, so- on the basis that he was available, and we (in our entirely unexperienced and tasteless opinion) liked his portfolio, we went ahead.
Steve right from the very beginning, 18 months prior to our wedding, wanted to get to know us over the phone and then in person, to understand our demands and to have a feeling for us as people. We met when covid restrictions eventually allowed and we both found that Steve had a very calming and reassuring presence. This came into its own on the wedding day, and I think at the small moments of nerves and anxiety we could both look to Steve for a nudge in the right direction.
The photos absolutely speak for themselves. He is a very talented photographer. We were perhaps concerned at an early stage, based on his portfolio, that he may be a bit too formal- we were looking for more of a candid, in the moment style for our wedding photos. It was entirely in his skillset to adjust to exactly what we wanted, and the proof is in the pudding.
From a customers point of view, there is nothing more we could have asked for. We had a small non-covid related delay, Steve was extremely flexible, willing, communicative and honest. The size of our weekend called for an additional photographer, his colleauge Catherine- who again captured such fantastic images and was a big part of the warm happy faces in the bridal party getting ready.
Never had we considered the importance of how likeable a photographer is, in terms of how to decide who to pick for your big day. Having someone behind a camera who genuinely made us laugh and smile was one of the many perfect details of our wedding weekend. I dare say I look forward to taking him for a pint the next time we're in Diss.
11/10 would recommend. Thanks Steve, J&J.
