Wes was a true professional throughout the whole process. With all the stresses of planning a wedding, we never had to worry about the photography. Wes spent quite a lot of time with us prior to the date to ensure he understood our vision for how we wanted our special day captured. When on site Wes really took the time to ensure he understood the light outside and inside to make sure that the photos he took where amazing. He also took the time to get to know the family and close friends of the bride and groom in order to make sure he captured the right people at the right times.Sent on 21/10/2015
All this hard work and dedication paid off as we couldn't be happier with the final product and will have the most amazing pictures to share and cherish for the rest of our lives.

Wesley was amazing to work with! Very friendly, professional and creative. Went out of his way to ensure that backgrounds, props etc were perfect in every shot. Was patient and ensured that our children were included and had fun during our photo shoot. I would highly recommend Wesley, he was fantastic!Sent on 06/09/2014

Wesley Allen Shaw captured my wedding day beautifully and emotionally. His passion and dedication for photography is evident in all his photos. Each photograph he captures tells a story, one that I can now relive through my wedding photos-transporting me back in time. Wesley plays particular attention to lighting and composition which I first fell in love with on his website. He is the photography guru who knows how to capture your story creatively from start to finish. It was a pleasure working with him.Sent on 29/04/2015
I look forward to working with you again Wes.
