Adam & Joy
"During the meeting it quickly became clear that Adam was a great fit for our wedding plans. We left the meeting feeling completely at ease and we were certain that Adam was the photographer for us and cancelled all our other meetings."
It started with a meeting at Starbucks and ended with an amazing set of photos which we enjoy everyday as we have set them as a screen saver on our TV. Of all the wedding decisions we made , choosing Adam to be our photographer is one that we know we got 100% right!
When we were looking for a wedding photographer we had no clue where to start but i kept seeing his name pop up on my facebook wall, it turned out he had actually photographed one of our old school friends weddings so we got a chance to see some of his work and we loved it straight away. We set up a meeting and never looked back since. During the meeting it quickly became clear that Adam was a great fit for our wedding plans, he made some great suggestions about other aspects of our wedding too as we really were clueless about all the planning! We left the meeting feeling completely at ease and we were certain that Adam was the photographer for us and cancelled all our other meetings.
We soon found out that Adam was actually going to be photographing our friends wedding so we got to see him in action and at that point we were even more certain we had made the right decision. He was everywhere in the room getting all the shots without ever feeling like her was always there or being in the way. For people who hate being photographed he made us feel relaxed and we loved how he made sure to capture everyone so you felt like a special part of the day. We were especially impressed with his ability during the group shots in particular the amazing confetti shot he captured, managing to control a large group of people without ever seeming bossy or rude.
We loved the fact that Adam regularly kept in touch with us to check up on not only how the wedding plans were going and photography related questions but also how we were doing ourselves and settling in to parenthood as we had a baby during the wedding planning madness. He made it clear that he was always available if we ever needed anything whether it was photography related or not.
After what seemed to pass in the blink of an eye it was finally our big day! From the morning when he showed up to capture the bridal party at our home to the evening reception before he left we honestly could not of expected anymore from Adam. He managed to capture everything we wanted and then some, he got the special moments full of emotion and they are so natural because you dont even realise he’s there, despite Adam being super tall which is impressive in itself! Despite the weather being super hot for our August bank holiday wedding Adam managed to organise the group shots in the blazing sun with ease, it never felt chaotic or regimented meaning everyone felt relaxed and we got all of the pictures we wanted without that part of the day dragging for us or our guests.
We decided to sit Adam on a table with our guests during the wedding breakfast and we are so glad that we did. Not only did it mean that he was there being involved and ready to capture the moments when they came but it gave the guests to chance to get to know him too and everyone on his table commented to us about how lovely they thought he was. Infact when we spoke to most of our guests in the weeks and months after the wedding the thing that they all comment on without fail was how much they liked our photographer, they said he was friendly, funny and professional and made them feel so comfortable in front of the camera.
Some of our favourite photos of the day are our couple shots. We were so nervous as neither of us like being photographed but most of the time we just ended up laughing which actually gave us some of the most beautiful and natural shots. Adam never took us away from the guests for too long but managed to take advantage of our venue and get so many different locations and photos. We never felt like Adam was posing us, but we will always remember and laugh when we take a picture together about the fact that we need to get “closer” , I do not think we have ever heard that word so much in a small space of time, who knew we stood so far apart haha.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank Adam so much for everything he did to help towards our wedding and everything he did for us and our guests on the day. If you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding we would 100% recommend Adam and so would all of our guests. He felt like he wasn’t just our photographer on the day but one of our guests and on top of that we have so many beautiful photos to show for it, if anything too many, we can’t choose which ones to use!!
If we ever need a photographer again we definitely wouldn’t look anywhere else!
Thank you so much Adam
