Ray was a brilliant find
Ray was our photographer for our wedding at St Nicholas Church and our reception at Pendrell Hall. Ray was a brilliant find - he had prior knowledge of the venues so knew where to take the best photo's. Neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera and weren't keen on having lots of 'staged photos - Ray spent plenty of time with us and really settled our nerves, and we've got a great selection of natural photos, as well as the expected group shots. Our guests thought Ray was great - he spent time talking to them and making them laugh, and was even playing football with the kids at one point....while of course getting us lots of photos of everyone having fun. We ordered a canvas, photo book and a memory stick of our photos - all arrived quickly and are top quality. On top of all this, everything was reasonably priced too. We're really happy with Ray and our photo's - he was a great addition to our day and we'd highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Ray! :)

Ray was fab from start to finish
Ray was fab from start to finish on our wedding day! He captured so many beautiful and natural shots, and was so lovely to work with. From the first meeting to receiving our finished album, everything went smoothly and he kept in contact all the time. We couldn't thank ray enough for capturing the best day of our lives and we would definitely recommend him for a wedding! We will be sure to use ray again in the future!

Ray was amazing
We originally booked Ray for our Wedding in 2019... 2 date changes later and we finally got our special day and wow. Ray was amazing... not only a photographer but fantastic at organising myself and the wedding party, was brilliant at providing moral support for us all during the nervous parts and captured all the magical parts of our day. We asked for two photographers and Jo came along to assist... she was just fantastic too and I know she got all the groomsmen laughing away during their morning prep. From start to finish nothing seemed too much trouble for Ray, being so accommodating with the date changes and receiving our images so soon after the day. We have recently received our albums and they've brought tears to everyones eyes. Just magical. Thank you Ray from the bottom of our hearts

Someone you can 100% trust with your photos
Absolutely love ray and his work.. we got recommended ray through someone on my moms Facebook. Very professional and so down to earth. From the start, he's always been great with us any questions we've had he's answered. When we met ray he showed us his work explained his background how he got into photography and also he asked about us! From there we knew he was the guy for us to take our photos on our special day, we wanted someone who we could have a laugh with, feel comfortable round and we got that instantly. Due to the pandemic we had to re-arrange from may 2020 to September 2020 he was so understanding and there for us completely. We couldn't of asked for a better photographer, we would like to think we have truly made a good friend in ray. Rays work is very high standard, and our pictures look absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend. He's someone you can 100% trust with your photos for any occasion. Thankyou so much ray! Av & Demi.

We couldn't recommend him more
Ray was absolutely outstanding in the work he did for us at our wedding in October. His photos were fantastic, and his contact with us from our initial booking to his delivery of our photo albums has been brilliant. His professionalism combined with his friendly and approachable manner were second to none, both during the entire process and on our wedding day itself, and we couldn't recommend him more.

We honestly couldn’t be more thrilled
We highly recommend Ray - he was an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding, from start to finish and our photos are absolutely stunning. Ray met us before the wedding to go over everything and talk about what specific photos we wanted and timings etc. On the day itself, he got on so well with all of the bridal party, the guests and staff at our venue, Blakelands Country House, and even helped out with making sure everything happened on time. We chose to book the package with 2 photographers which worked really well so we have pictures of both of us getting ready and different angles of lots of different parts of the day. And the finished result - wow! We honestly couldn’t be more thrilled with our photos and can’t stop looking at them! Great mix of funny and romantic shots and we love them all. The albums and canvas are fantastic quality and really tell the story of the day so we will always remember it all. Thank you so much Ray, we hope to see you again in the future! Mr and Mrs Fox xx

What is your most memorable wedding?

Being flown to Sorrento, Italy for 4 days to capture a wedding. All expenses paid. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Artistic, Natural, Professional, Passionate, Relaxed

What about your business are you most proud of?

The albums and prints I supply. I love seeing printed images rather than just stuck on a USB in a drawer. And my reviews - I have been in hospitality most of my adult life and reading the reviews clients leave for me shows that the service I offer is recognised and appreciated.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

You can only please some of the people, some of the time. But you can please yourself all of the time.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I am very down to earth, like to have a laugh and get to know you, so I invite all couples to my studio to have a chat and show off my stunning albums and walls filled with photos. I try to make everything as simple as possible for you as your wedding should be stress free, so most of the experience with me is online - except the day of course. On the day you will see I am the bridesmaid you didn't need to buy a dress for and go out of my way to make sure you have a great day.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

A photo with everyone you hold dearest.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The bride & groom in the back of an ambulance. True story.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

A "who cares" attitude, one of my umbrellas and some wellies.

Describe how you got into photography.

Having a Great Grandad, Grandad and Dad all being a photographer at some point in their lives must be in the blood somewhere. I got asked to do a friends wedding and it just spiralled from there. Now I get to do something I love and I haven't worked a day since.
