Simon is a talented and creative, pictorial story teller with a sense of presence. His images capture your wedding day, in a unique & endearing way, just how you would love to remember. He shoots from the heart with a keen artistic eye for detail, which other photographers might easily over look. I love working with him as he is charming and fun, this seems to help even the most nervous of couples to relax and enjoy their wedding day. When the day itself has passed there is still such a feeling of excitement & anticipation to see the images Simon has captured for yourself. The results are amazing ! I look forward to working with him again.

We were lucky enough to have Simon as our photographer for our big day at The Barn at Bury Court, near Farnham in April 2016. When we first met with Simon at Lilly’s, we knew instantly that we were booking him for our wedding at The Barn at Bury Court. Simon put us at ease straight away with his welcome and came across as a completely genuine and warm character that truly cares about returning the best photographs from your special day. What was different about Simon was that he didn’t just speak about ”how nice the couple were”, or ”what a lovely day/venue” it was, but told us about exactly why he had taken the photo the way he had, how he had thought about it, what editing he had done to produce the image and why he had framed it and used that particular paper finish, border, shading etc. all in order to produce that single image we were looking at within his album. That truly made us feel at home knowing that Simon knew everything about not only capturing the right image to begin with, but being to truly produce a stunning finished product. Prior to the wedding day, Simon ensured he visited our venue and met with the staff there to understand all the options in order to capture the best possible range of images for us. On the day itself, he was engaging, funny and a complete calming influence as well. Everyone spoke of ”how nice and charming” he was and nothing seemed too much hassle for him at all. Some of the photos he created for us are truly beautiful and many hang on the walls of our home today and will continue to for many years. Even down to the final details of producing the album, Simon insisted that we met with him in his studio to run through all the images which completely made us feel at home. What we have ended up with in our wedding album is a truly stunning piece of work that will remain a showcase for our wedding for years to come. It really is worth investing into something that is so vital in terms of memories from your wedding day.
In summary, from start to finish, Simon was an absolute gentleman and a complete professional to work with. Along the way he even produced gift vouchers to raffle off for a Macmillan event we attended and created a beautiful photo of my wife’s mum who sadly passed away, a testament to the kind natured person he is. These personal touches are what made our experiences with Simon so valued and I would genuinely encourage anyone and everyone to at the very least engage with Simon to talk through what you want/need from your wedding photographer. All the best. I hope we get to use you again in the future…

Simon was the photographer for our wedding and we loved him so much we also asked him to do a family portrait recently. We couldn't recommend him highly enough! Simon managed to make two camera shy people feel completely at ease, was brilliant with our little baby, naturally capturing the special moments without any of the awkwardness that often accompanies having your portrait done. The experience on the day and then the time that Simon spends afterwards with the photographs results in amazing pictures that you can be proud of. He has definitely got lifelong customers in us :).

We had an engagement photo session with Simon at the weekend and it was very enjoyable. He has a great eye for lighting and detail and made us feel at ease throughout. The photos have come out wonderfully and we really look forward to having Simon capture our wedding.

Simon was the photographer at our wedding 25 years ago and so for my wife's 50th Birthday this year I wanted to do something special and surprise her with a portrait of our three children. Simon was that special ingredient! Simon is very creative and personable, and our children really liked working with him. The portraits that Simon has created look absolutely amazing and we are all completely thrilled with the results. We were lucky to find Simon 25 years ago and it was great to meet up with Simon again after all these years!

We encountered Simon’s work before we met him and we absolutely loved his work. Luckily he was available to be our wedding photographer and we are so glad to have worked with him, what a wonderful day we had with him and all our guests who interacted him have been saying to us how lovely Simon is. Not only is he talented but he really is a pleasure to work with, very easy going, accommodating and works with such grace and then to top it all, his work is outstanding. We’ve just viewed our wedding photos and absolutely loved them and we are so excited to see what Simon will do with them and we are looking forward to seeing the final product. We really have been blessed to come across Simon, and no doubt have found ourselves a family photographer for life!
