Had a fantastic experience working with Russel!
It was such a great pleasure working with Russel and couldn't have asked for a better photographer to shoot our wedding. It's all the little details and the passion and care he has for his job and his clients that really differentiates his service from others. My wife and I felt valued and at the end of the special day, we had lots of fun (which is very important). He went above and beyond making sure he got the shots he wanted while ensuring we are enjoying ourselves.Sent on 04/09/2020
We had an elopement style wedding (just the 2 of us) during the pandemic and Russel took good care of us so we can have a stress free wedding as much as possible. The communication with our photographer before, during and after the wedding was superb!
We can't wait to see our photos!

Amazing photographer with lovely photos
This photographer has an amazing eye and works with the setting to make amazing pictures. I would highly recommend his services. He even brought an assistant when he felt it was necessary and didn't charge extra for the service. Extremely understanding and very professional. It was a pleasure working with Russel. We did a short video of the ceremony and it turned out really well.Sent on 22/07/2020

A day to remember
What can I say about Russel except : Thank you. Russel was exceptional, he made our most special day absolutely perfect. It was way above our expectations, he was flexible with our choices and the timing. We were able to take photos in so many locations, with different lighting. The photo came really quickly in a nice USB Wood engraved key. It was super easy to communicate with Russel. I can not recommend him enough, he will take photo to let you remember your most cherished memories for a long time. Absolutely LGBTQ+ friendly.Sent on 20/01/2020

Fun and personalized!
We had our wedding during the pandemic where my parents couldn’t join due to travel restrictions, and Russel was so accommodating in ensuring my parents could still be part of the wedding with his video service. We hired Russel for engagement photo and wedding photo and video and he honestly did his magic. We had so much fun working with Russel, and the end result turned out just absolutely stunning!Sent on 21/08/2021

We just received our online photo gallery and we couldn't be more happy with how our pictures turned out! Russel has a flair for making people at ease and knows when to take the perfect shot. He went over and beyond! He was reliable, responded promptly, and was very accommodating to our ideas. We have no regrets and if given the chance to do our wedding over, we will choose him again!Sent on 03/10/2020
