We would not hesitate to recommend Phil as your wedding photographer (and have already put my cousin in touch!). He was a really friendly person to have around for the morning and put all of us at ease in front of the camera. We had stressed that we did not want to spend much time away from our guests and Phil managed to get all of the pictures that we wanted in about 20minutes, and we had great craic taking them too! Two days after our wedding he sent through a huge selection of photos as a "sneak peek" - We couldn't believe he had them ready so quickly, and the full set of pictures was available within weeks of the wedding and were fabulous. Thank you Phil!

Just wanted to say thanks again to Phil for our wonderful wedding and engagement shoot photographs - they are simply stunning and we couldn't be more delighted. To anyone considering hiring Phil, we could not recommend him more - he is extremely talented and easy to work with, putting you at ease - something that was very important on our big day, particularly for my camera shy husband. I searched long and hard to find our photographer and I have to say we weren't disappointed - in fact our expectations were surpassed. The photos are phenomenal and will last us our lifetime. Phil catches moments you don't even realise are happening, not just the bride and groom, but with the guests too, all the while remaining unobstrusive. We were also hugely pleasantly surprised with the speed with which the photos were returned to us too. They are still making me smile every day. Thank you Phil.

I really could not recommend Phil enough!! We were told about him from a friend and when we saw photos from weddings he had done we decided we did not need to look any further and booked him immediately! I can honestly say that this was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding.
He captured absolutely every detail and we absolutely love every photo!! Phil made the day so easy! He is very laid back and definitely knew his stuff :)

We booked Phil on a recommendation from my husband's work colleague. Phil was the one and only photographer we met and we honestly could not have dreamt of finding a better person to capture our wedding day.
Phil is an absolute gentleman and from the get go put everyone at ease! He noticed every tiny detail and was so aware of making us feel comfortable and making sure we enjoyed every second of the day.
We cannot wait to see the photos as I know they are going to absolutely blow us away!!
Thanks Phil for being such a pleasure to have with us on the day!

Thanks Joyce and Steven for such kind words especially since you haven't even received the photos yet! Like no pressure lads. Joking aside, I had a blast too with yerselves, family and friends. From what I've seen of the photos we've got some fantastic shots and I particularly like the ones at sunset in the fields by Moyvalley. I still can't believe you climbed a fence for a photo!

We are absolutely delighted we choose Phil from Give us a goo for our wedding this June. Phil put us all at ease from the moment he arrived on the morning of our wedding. We enjoyed our day immensely and the photo's capture every moment and more, we are thrilled with our huge selection of fabulous photos. We could not recommend Phil enough, he is relaxed, professional, personal and has an exceptional eye for detail. The quick turn around with our photos during the busy wedding season was great, so much choice is making our selection for our wedding album easy! You will not be disappointed if you book give us a goo, even the name is perfect! Many thanks Phil, Bronagh & Tommy McGee

If you're looking for a wedding photographer, look no further - Phil is just amazing. I found Phil through a friend; she shared her wedding photos online and when I saw them, I knew there was no one else that would come close. Luckily Phil was free for our big day when I contacted him (about 2 years prior!).

Phil has a really keen eye and a really easy going approach. I was quite relaxed in terms of what I wanted and told Phil to take the lead and tell us what to do. We liaised over email when I was based in Australia and the week of the wedding, we spoke over the phone for about 45 minutes to go through what we liked, any special photo requests and to give Phil a feel for what to expect. Phil guided us through the day and came up with lots of lovely ideas for photos - he is a true professional and his experience is second to none!

One of the big standouts for me was Phil's ability to remember names. For group shots, he remembered all our family member's names, calling them out one by one to move their hand/hair/other to make sure he got the best shot. He builds rapport in seconds and the photo results are just amazing. We've been through them heaps of times already and are struggling to pick our favourite shots as we love every single photo!

We chose Phil as our photographer as I was a bridesmaid at a wedding he shot before and didn't feel like I was posing all day and he was very relaxed and friendly. He was brilliant for our own also. Phil has a great personality which I feel is very important for a photographer, we felt totally relaxed on the day. Lots of our guests have commented on how they didn't even notice him which is a great thing! He also managed to get great pictures of people who are famously camera shy and has a natural flair for getting people to be photo ready & smile without outright asking them! Our pictures were available quickly & they turned out beautiful. He captured so many moments that I had forgotten about or wasn't aware he was there for. One of my favorite photos he took is of my dogs as he was arriving that morning! Phil is also very quick to respond & we have beautiful pictures from our engagement shoot. I love looking at our photos & he captured the day so well. I would 100% recommend him to any couple.

Loved working with Phil!
When choosing a photographer I didn't realise how long our working relationship would last but it was almost 2 years. Our wedding photographer was one of the first things we did on "to do" list. We had a lovely initial meeting, followed by our engagement shoot some months later.
By the time the wedding day came we felt very comfortable and familiar with Phil, we already loved his style of work. Phil's friendly manner put us and our guests very much at ease on the day.
We're really happy with our wedding pics and would be happy to recommend Phil for any wedding.
The only thing I would advise is that all of the editing and selecting is done online, luckily I was somewhat comfortable with that but just make sure you have some I.T. / online ability when choosing "Give Us A Goo".

We first heard of Phils work from friends of ours whose wedding he had photographed and they couldn't speak highly enough of him. Planning our wedding from abroad added a little extra stress but Phil was so accomadating and informative right from the very start. He was interested in how we wanted our day to run and was very mindful that we didn't want to be away from our guests for a long period of time taking photographs. We feel that he captured the energy, emotion and special moments perfectly without ever being intrusive. All of our family and guests commented on how brilliant he was on the day. He is so friendly and professional and never forgets a name!!! Even now over a year on he responds to my emails within a day, his customer service is flawless. We would (and have) highly recommend Phil for anyone looking for a photographer to capture their special moments.

Looking back at our photographs a few years on its incredible how Phil was able to capture the atmosphere and transport is back to our special day. He was a joy to work with and made sure that while capturing the day on camera he didn't take intrude on any element of the day and keeping our time away from guests to an absolute minimum. He researched the church and reception venue in advance so he knew exactly the appropriate places for photos. Following the wedding he was easy to deal with to review and change the album. He is very professional and we would highly recommend him.

I found Phil / Give us a goo via weddings online and was impressed with the style of photos on his website. We arranged to meet him and he kindly met us one evening after work. I was hesitant about choosing a photographer that we hadn't had recommended to you by friends, however as so as we met him, my fianc? and I said " tick that off the list. Job done! " and we met no other photographers. Phil is a calm, gentle, interested guy and a talented and very professional photographer. I should say energetic too as he captured 1,000 pictures of our day!! As many have said before, he is great with kiddies as will also calm any nerves for the bride and groom. We had the photos pretty quickly and were delighted with them. Phil will let you revert then with your choice of pictures for the album. We took ages to finalise the draft album as we asked for some changes to versions. Phil was so accommodating and patient with my constant requests to tweak this and that. I should point out Phil will offer any busy couple the option of giving him free reign to chose the album pics and create it all himself should you wish.
In summary, we are delighted we chose Phil as our photographer, would not hesitate to recommend him and the end result is an album to treasure forever.

We chose Phil Voon (Give us a goo photography) for our wedding in November
2012 and would highly recommend him. Phil was pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process. On the day, he was professional yet relaxed. He naturally put everyone,including my camera shy family at ease, while still managing to capture all the images we wanted.
The photos are fantastic, he really captured the day and guests. We have had so many comments about the quality and creativity of our wedding photos, and the album is fantastic.
