We met JP at a wedding fair and straight away I knew I wanted him to be the photographer at our wedding. He liked the look of us because I have long hair and my girlfriend at the time was pregnant. He was explaining all the shots he had in mind for us and was very complimentary of our look together. Anyway, a couple of weeks later we officially booked him. Whenever we needed to contact him regarding the contract and the initial payment he was always available. Everything flowed perfectly. We met him before the wedding and went through the whole day and he took notes of everything, and reassured us that our day was going to be incredible and that we were perfect for each other. So on the day, he turned up at the flat where the boys and I were and his banter was brilliant. He even wore a tie that matched the colour of what the boys and I were wearing. JP’s attention to detail was spot on. I consider myself to be quite artistic so was always worried the photographer wouldn’t catch things that I had in my head, not JP. He was bang on. He got all the photos we wanted. JP was one of the lads, and all the boys couldn’t believe how funny he was. He also helped calmed my nerves down. And to be honest, the wedding officially started as soon as he showed up because the boys and I were nervous, but as soon as he turned up it was fun, professional, but carried a certain “let’s make today a day we’ll never forget” type of attitude. He left my flat to go to the in-laws where the girls were and from what I’ve seen and heard, he continued his professional yet friendly manner, and got all the shots the girls wanted. My wife’s Mum and Dad couldn’t believe how amazing he was. The shots he got of my wife’s Dad seeing her in her dress for the first time still get me now, 7 months on. The bridemaids were so impressed and loved every second he was there.
JP was incredible throughout the whole day. His energy levels never dropped, his camera work was incredible, his guidance was clear, he knew what he wanted to do and executed it with perfection, and more importantly, JP made sure my wife and I were happy with everything. Of course everyone was important to him, but he would just wink at me every now and then to reassure my wife and I that we were doing good and that he was getting some beautiful shots!
The book we received was amazing, the thank you cards were spot on, and as an aftercare service JP was always in touch regarding our orders. Even choosing the photos for the book was a fun process.
Looking back at the photos he took of us, we know we made the easiest and best decision. Choosing JP was easy, really. Hands down, I couldn’t recommend the bloke more. We will definitely be seeing him again and using his services again. I’ve seen other reviewers consider him a friend, and that’s what my wife and I say.
JP made everyone feel like he was a guest at the wedding who just happened to be taking photos. Everyone loved him and he showed everyone how a true professional works. JP sets the example and in my opinion he sets the bar for any standards people should consider if ever needing to use a photographer.
JP, it was a pleasure having you there to celebrate our big day with us, and thanks to you we will always be able to look back at the best day of our lives. Thank you!
