Val is an extraordinary professional who captured stunning photos for us that are simply breathtaking. His skill, not only in taking pictures but also in understanding the environment and the desires of his clients, is exceptional. What we particularly appreciated was his ability to be discreet. We wanted a photographer who would blend into the background during the day, and Val executed this perfectly. He was practically invisible, yet he managed to capture everything that was important to us. His unobtrusive presence made the day even more special, as we were able to be ourselves without feeling the pressure of a camera lens constantly on us. His pictures are a testament to his ability to anticipate the moment and his eye for detail. Every photograph tells a story, each image is a preserved memory that we will cherish for years to come. His work exceeded our expectations, capturing the emotion and joy of our day in a way we could never have imagined. We are extremely pleased with his services and would highly recommend Val to anyone seeking a professional, discreet and highly talented photographer. His commitment to his craft is evident in the quality of his work and his ability to capture the essence of the moment is unparalleled.

Val and Michael, were a pleasure to have with us on our wedding day. Michael was cool and calm, and Val was all smiles and genuinely seemed to be enjoying everything! They work great as a team and they fluidly moved around the whole day capturing as much as they could with little to no impact on any part of the day! From start to finish we were delighted to have them both as the documentarians of our big day! My wife, whose incredibly camera shy felt comfortable all day! They both like to shoot what they see, but are happy to stage anything you wish! Cost wise they were exceptional value! Val sent us on some photos within a day or 2 and they were sensational and we look forward to recieving the rest of our photos/ album and the films Michael is working on! For something different... for something special... for something that highlights you... Book these guys asap! You will not be disappointed! Thank you both so much!! We hope you both had a great day too!

I can not recommend enough. Firstly, he saved my day as my photographer cancelled on us 3 weeks before our wedding - possibly a blessing in disguise. Secondly, he was reasonably priced, had a half day package for a fraction of the price others had qouted us. Thirdly, he was discrete on the day, almost blending in so we had some great natural photos. Lastly, but not least, he's very talented. He was quick getting each shot, gave us a little guidance how to pose and I couldn't be any happier with our photos. Really captured the atmosphere and romance of our big day. 1000% reccomend to everyone.

Val was an absolute delight to work with, right from the very start. His responsiveness to emails and readiness to clarify any doubts we had in the lead-up to the big day reassured us that we were in capable and dependable hands. On the day itself, Val demonstrated not just professionalism but also a knack for making us feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. It's a testament to his unobtrusive approach that he seamlessly captured all the precious moments without us even noticing. Val's style of photography perfectly resonated with what we were seeking. His keen eye for detail and his talent for encapsulating the raw emotions and candid moments of our wedding day are clearly reflected in the high-quality photos we received. Every picture is a masterpiece in its own right, and we find ourselves struggling to choose which ones to include in the album because we simply adore all of them! My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend Val to any couple planning their wedding. His exceptional service and the outstanding quality of his work will not disappoint. We extend our sincere thanks to Val for helping make our wedding day unforgettable. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Thank you once again, Val!
