Incredible Wedding Photographer
I had the most amazing experience officiating a wedding that Will photographed on top of a mountain. His ability to use existing light, then supplementing it with flash, created some of the most outstanding wedding photos I've ever seen. Will was the complete professional, allowing the wedding ceremony to be recorded without intruding. I HIGHLY recommend Will Purcell Photography and can't wait to officiate another ceremony with Will behind the camera!Sent on 04/11/2020

It wasn’t just a photoshoot, it was an adventure!
It wasn’t just a photoshoot, it was an adventure!
When we were researching for a photographer to help us with our pre wedding pictures, we were immediately drawn to Will’s style, it was dramatic, artistic and most of all romantic.
Lauren was excellent to communicate with, she was prompt, brief and precise. From choosing our package to our itinerary for the day, it was perfectly explained and laid out for us.
During the shoot they were very friendly and professional, he knew exactly what he was looking for in regards to shots and knew exactly where to take us to achieve it. Lauren was in charge of lighting and taking behind the scene shots, they’re completely in sync and seamless.
Lauren & Will is the perfect team and we are so happy that we found them, you must too!

Amazing!! Stop searching, you've found your photographers!
Choosing Will and Lauren to capture our big day was hands down, one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!
After seeing them work for my friend's wedding as a bridesmaid, I knew we had to choose them for our wedding! (funnily enough, she told me later on that I had been the one to originally suggest Will and Lauren as "the photographers I would choose if I was engaged" when she was on the hunt for a photographer for her wedding. So when my husband and I were finally planning our wedding we took it as a sign that it was meant to be!)
Will and Lauren's ability to capture one of the most important days of your life is incredible. From start to finish they are adaptable in any environment, have extreme attention to detail and could even bring out a true smile in my husband who is notorious for his 'Chandler' smile. Needless to say they make you feel 100% at ease and comfortable!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Will and Lauren, you can trust that you're in the best hands with these two! We're so happy with how our photos turned out and so thankful to have such high-quality photos to remember our day forever with!

Will and Lauren were the photographers for our wedding and they were absolutely amazing! All of the photos were so incredibly gorgeous with each image telling its own story of the day!! The way they play with the lighting in a photo is masterful! They are truly an amazing talent and we are so thankful that we found them!!Sent on 29/11/2018
From the first Skype call to the engagement photos to the day of the wedding, they were so accommodating and so easy to work with! Will and Lauren are true professionals and the level of care that they showed in capturing our day is beyond amazing. There were so many little moments and we were so glad that they were there to document all of them! With each picture, every emotion just leaps right out of the photo!
We are not the most comfortable people in front of the camera but Will and Lauren are such an amazing couple and such wonderful people that they immediately put us at ease! It was like hanging out with old friends!
Will and Lauren, thank you so much for photographing our wedding and providing us with memories that will last a lifetime!! We are so privileged to have had you capture our special day!!

Truly great photos of our Summer 2018 Wedding!
We choose Will Pursell Photography not only for our Summer 2018 Wedding but also for an Engagement shoot and are extremely happy that we did. The amazing photos are lifted by the amazing duo of Lauren and Will with their great service, personality and joy to be around.Sent on 04/01/2019
The #1 draw for me is the artistic style of some of the photos, you still get traditional wedding photos but then you get the Will creative shots added in. Fast and great turn around service, handled all of our 'ideas' ;)
Amazing work Lauren and Will, thank you!
