I cannot express how fabulous Phil is. We had an amazing opportunity of a  photo shoot in spring woods this evening for my son and mother in law. My son is 20 months old and usually very shy but he took to him straight away, he absolutely loved him! Phil was so professional and patient with my boisterous son and put us all at ease. Thank you so much for today. I can't wait to see the finished pictures.

We cannot praise or thank you enough for our lovely wedding photos. Phil was brilliant from the word go, and even when the date was changed at the last minute it was not a problem, nothing was too much to ask. We have had so many amazing comments on our photos, and everyone has said that they are the best wedding photos they have seen. Phil captured all the important things to me and John on our day and we cannot fault anything. We would highly recommend Phil as i'm sure many of our guests would.

We are so happy with our wedding photos! Phil has a real talent for capturing special moments, whether it be a special look between two people or a moment of genuine laughter or joy.

Been a long time to get over this amazing day with so much to remember. Once the memories fad, the distance gets greater, and it seems so much more important to capture these most precious moments that last for ever. How lucky we were to find such a wonderful, caring, considerate and thoughtful photographer to capture the most important moments of our life. Phil, we thank you so much for the effort and overtime you put in of your own time to ensure you got exactly what you wanted in order to predominantly please us. Anyone pondering over the decision whether or not to go that little more on quality need to stop, act and enjoy many years of happy memories from your unique photographic experience.

Hi Phil, we just wanted to say a huge thankyou! You've done an amazing job with our wedding photos and we're both so happy with them. You made us feel very comfortable on the day and captured some truly perfect pictures...they will always remind us of our perfect day so thankyou again.

Lisa and Ian Carter


What a pleasure it was to have Phil at our daughters wedding...a real gent, friendly, professional, courteous, i could go on forever! Phil arranged everyone in their groups so easy, without any fuss, we were all relaxed and at ease from start to finish. As for the saying ' capturing the moment', then Phil is your man, he was so unintrusive you really didn't notice he was there, he just blended in either in the background or amongst the guests. We couldn't wait to sit down with the family complete with nibbles and champagne and re-live the moments, and re-live them we did, each and every photo captured was so natural, we lost count of how many times we all said "oh thats a good one"! I just wish we could do it all again! Thanks Phil, you are a gem.

Sue and Brian Collier

Phil is amazing, he took the photos of my wifes 40th birthday party and they are superb. He also did a little video photo montage of the occasion and everyone who has seen it has been blown away. I would fully recommend Phil to anyone who requires a photographer, for great photos the subjects need to be relaxed and Phil is great at that, you are comfortable straight away. Without sounding too gushing in praise, you can see why he is an award winning photographer.Thanks Phil for a superb job, can i pre-book you for Noahs wedding in 20 years time?

Hi Phil, huge thanks for the lovely informal photoshoot at your studio.If you're looking for a photographer with a relaxed, friendly attitude, then Phil's your man!! We had a terrible time choosing our print as there were so many good ones to choose from. We had a lovely time with you and will have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks again Phil.

Karen Ryan


We went to Phil to have some family photos taken of our 5 month old baby and 3 year old daughter. What can i say the images taken are absolutely stunning. You captured the most beautiful moments of our children and brought a tear to our eyes with the way you presented the photos to us. the photos are exactly what we were looking for and more, the early years of our childrens lives are so precious and we will always have these outstanding photographs that show our childrens personalities and capture them exactly as they are forever. Your patience, friendly nature, and ability to make us feel at ease was clearly shown throughout the shoot by the confidence our daughter had. She is usually shy around others, however you had the ability to make her feel so comfortable that she really came out of her shell and she throughly enjoyed having her photo taken. We cannot thank you enough for your professionalism, attention to detail, time and effort in making our photographs just what we wanted, and we will definitely return in the future, and we will be recommending you to friends and family.

I have already recommended you and will continue to in the future.
