“THANK YOU. We absolutely love these photos, we’ve been looking forward to seeing them so much and they have surpassed our expectations. You captured so many beautiful and precious moments during the day we hadn’t realised (Kat’s parents seeing her for the first time in the Marine, the shots of us laughing together, the band stuff) as well as the ones we knew were coming (the group shots are AMAZING) so we couldn’t ask for more. Thank you so much, we’re so pleased we chose you as our photographer, we’ve spent the last 3 hours looking through these and welling up.”

"Amazing Wedding photos - thank you" Herons valley,

“Rob and I want to say a massive thank you for the AMAZING photos!! You have perfectly captured all of our guests and some wonderful moments that we didn’t get chance to see on the day (such as the flower girls running around on the lawn)! You made us feel really relaxed and comfortable, and we had so many lovely compliments from our friends and family on your friendly and professional approach.

We were also super impressed with your preparation and organisation – you clearly love what you do, and you’re brilliant at it! Thank you so much for travelling down to Reading. You were hands-down our number one wedding supplier and we will be recommending you to absolutely everyone we know!”

“We are struggling to put into words just how thankful we are for your incredible work. Our photos are truly beautiful and capture every single moment of our special day. We laughed and cried (happy tears!) looking through them all for the first time. You were fantastic on the day and we received many compliments on your behalf! The photos of the two of us at various Derbyshire beauty spots on the way to Hathersage are stunning and so cleverly done. You are a fantastic photographer and we would highly recommend you to anyone. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”

“I was attracted by Sam’s succinct, core positioning on his website – ‘In the Moment’ wedding photography, when researching for photography services for the UK ceremony of my wedding. His work is captivating — full of natural lights, thoughtful and artistic composition, loves and the moment of happiness from every corner and face in his clients’ weddings – and that have gracefully delivered to my own as well — with exceeding expectation. Not just myself and my husband, everyone whom had or hadn’t been to wedding adores the photographs. They unfold a unique story of my own wedding and complete it as the ultimate memories that we can keep and go back to embrace with joy forever. I love his photographs so much which are beyond words. I know they’re gonna be always in style and timeless.

On the logistic side of things, Sam is a delight to deal with and he sent us the complete sets in FOUR days.

I would definitely go back to him again and recommend him to anyone.

Speaking as an experienced business marketer and a bride who has held weddings across Hong Kong & the UK.”
