Jo & Mark Ritchie

We’ve known John for some time and therefore know how passionate he is about his photography. We knew straight away once our wedding date had been set that we wanted John to be our photographer; we had seen examples of his work and it was exactly the type of style that we wanted. From the moment we made the booking, at the initial consultation and at the pre-wedding shoot (which was amazing fun) we knew we were in safe hands. John was accompanied by his passion and enthusiasm on the day and took so many photos without us even noticing he was there for the most part. We can’t thank John enough for the truly beautiful images of our wedding day that capture so many special moments and great memories of a fantastic day!

John was recommended to us by one of our friends who saw his work at a friend’s wedding. He definitely didn’t disappoint. John is genuinely such a lovely guy and so amazing at his job which he clearly loves and is passionate about. He is chatty, friendly and so enthusiastic about his work. Prior to the wedding we had a pre-wedding shoot which was so much fun and made us even more excited to work with John on our big day!

John made us all feel relaxed on the day, and if I’m honest, we hardly knew he was even there at some points, working silently in the background to produce natural and un-staged shots yet able to efficiently coordinate group shots. We now have some absolutely beautiful photos of our wedding which we will cherish forever. I could not recommend John enough!

John was our clear choice for wedding photographer, having a great eye and being a fab bloke! He was really flexible with our needs and pulled off some really amazing shots, all day and night long! And he's so cheerful about it too! Highly recommended to make your wedding fun and provide great memories to keep!

We were lucky enough to have John photograph not only our Wedding, but on that same weekend our daughter’s Blessing!

We cannot recommend John highly enough. He an extremely talented photographer, puts everyone around him at ease, manages to both blend in to the background and take control of the crowd when needed and is is also one of the nicest people we know. Not to be underestimated when you are together from the very start of the day to the very end! With an incredible amount of patience and skill to go after that ‘perfect’ shot (which he always gets by the way!) John has a way of taking you all on his personal journey throughout the day that makes you feel you have created something together.

John has captured some of the most precious moments in our lives for which we will always be grateful. Thank you John!!

John shot our wedding in a relaxed style and many of my favourite photos of our day were ones taken by him (many of which are still on the walls six years later). He takes time to get great images without too much staging or lengthy waits for those involved – we found his style and capture was perfect for us in that he got photos of all our guests (not just the wedding party), many of whom we didn’t see that much of in the excitement of the day itself. He is genuinely passionate about getting it right for clients and that is clear from the moment that you first meet him and I do believe what he offers is fantastic value. Subsequent to thewedding he has also taken some lovely images of our growing family, and we look forward to working with him again.

Richard and Christine Clark

John provided an exceptional, friendly and professional service. He has a unique talent for capturing the emotion of the moment in his photography, this was so important for our wedding day. John got the best from our day, he put us all at ease and this resulted in the most beautiful, natural shots. We absolutely love the photographs John took on our wedding day and will treasure these, and the moments they captured so honestly, always. We would recommend John without hesitation, he did an amazing job and it was a real pleasure to work with him. We look forward to requesting his input again for future opportunities

Paula and Dave Swinton

My husband and I are beyond thrilled and thankful that we chose John to capture our wedding day and celebration. From the moment we began our email exchanges to the day of our wedding being captured he was amazing and flawless!

After deciding that we just wanted to have a simple, intimate wedding at Ely registry office, John truly captured the love and laughter we've shared together for more than 20 years. The photos are amazing, just what we wished for. John then captured every aspect of our wedding celebration at our evening celebration for our family and friends, from guests arriving to our first dance on our black and white dance floor and beyond, creating an album of memories that will be treasured forever.

Thank you for capturing one of the most important days of our lives so perfectly! Thank you for being so enthusiastic, accommodating, warming and a laugh, a perfect gentlemen, it has been our pleasure and would recommend John to capture and be part of anyone's occasion.

After spending far too many hours browsing through endless online wedding photographer albums, none of whom seemed right, it was a relief to find John who managed both the intimate couple photos and the group and party shots that make a wedding. He was very personable and easy to work with, asking us the right questions so we could plan our day, and accepting our suggestions of how we wanted things to look.

On the day itself, John was that perfect blend of unobtrusive, and friendly, just another one of our guests, but still managing to capture all of those moments and magic that make a special day, from preparations and dressing through the ceremony and the party afterwards. He managed our different locations and venues with ease, always there where we wanted him.

Many of our guests commented on how easy he was to be around, and how well the final photographs have come out. They are beautifully presented and a joy to us both, each time we look through them re-living our very special day. Thoroughly recommended to anyone considering him as a photographer for their wedding.
