We used Simon for our wedding and he was just AMAZING!! He was so calm, yet very professional and made the whole photographs experience so relaxed. The thought of having a camera in my face and having to pose for staged shots was just not what I wanted on my special day and Simon made all those fears float away.
He was so discrete and not intrusive during any part of the day, which in a small church with 60 guests and a big fancy camera was a remarkable achievement. Our guests said Simon was very pleasant, chatty and really approachable, especially if anyone wanted a specific photograph taking.
So not only did Simon make everyone feel at home around him, especially being the only person there not related to us through blood or friendship, the photos he took during the day were fantastic. There are so many of the ‘money shots’ as you’d call it. The ones that just capture everything in a single still. I love pretty much every photo he’s taken and choosing the ones to put in the wedding album is still proving difficult (they might just all have to go in)! They are all just magical and again, most of them I don’t even remember Simon taking… not because of too much champagne, but the way be blended in and didn’t get in the way of anyone having fun. Which was great.
I’d recommend Simon in a heart beat for your special day, or any other event where you want high quality, magical photos. Thanks again Simon for immortalizing our special day. It was just perfect and you’ve photographed every part of it in such detail. We’ve definitely found a photographer for life who we can trust without any doubts, but we’ve also made another friend for our future guest list!! Thanks again Simon… You really are very talented!! x
