We were lucky enough to find Adam as our wedding photographer.  From the onset he was efficient at liaising with us and we particularly liked his friendly but professional approach.  
On the day itself he was very calming and unobtrusive capturing some beautiful photographs that were in the moment, exactly as we had hoped for.  
We have some very special memories thanks to Adam and would recommend him for any occasion that you would like to cherish.

We would like to say how wonderful the photographs are, you have captured the day perfectly, just the way we wanted.  We asked you to capture our guests chatting amongst each other informally and enjoying the day but you also captured the special moments between us. The formal group photos are also great as we hoped, including the laughter and fun.  At no time did we feel you were intrusive.  We would recommend your services to anyone thinking of having a photographer for their wedding.  We can’t thank you enough.

Thank you so much Adam for our stunning wedding photos. What was wonderful about hiring Adam as our wedding photographer is that he really blends in during the day and takes breathtaking shots so discreetly - you don’t even realise he’s there.

We approached Adam to be the photographer for our wedding, who is very friendly and easy going. Adam took a wide range of photos on the day without being intrusive but captured the events of the day brilliantly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Adam or use his services again at a future date.

Adam captured our beautiful wedding day at Russets and what an amazing photographer he is! Got some great natural shots of myself, my husband and all our guests. I’m so impressed with our photos and I would recommend him to everyone. True perfectionist and has a great eye for detail. Thank you so much!

We are delighted with Adam’s pictures and the story they told of our daughter’s special day. Adam was already acquainted with the venue, Slaugham Place, and was able to take shots that other photographers might have missed.

We would both like to thank you for the professional and unobtrusive way you went about the day. Anyone we have spoken to said they weren’t really aware of you being there. It certainly helped make our special day run smoothly. We would both be very happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

When it came to booking a photographer for our countryside wedding, we wanted someone who would capture the relaxed, unique theme, but also produce the wonderful wedding shots that we secretly love! Adam was our standout favourite after looking trough his portfolio, and we could not have asked for a more perfect photographer on the day of the wedding. He was alert to every tiny nuance on the day, pouncing on the perfect shots, bending over backwards to meet our last minute requests and helping make our day last a lifetime. We can’t thank Adam enough for the wonderful photos, and would recommend him to anyone! (Book him right now!!)

We have nothing but praise for Adam who did an amazing job photographing our wedding day. With rain falling all day, Adam persevered and captured many special moments that we will look back on for years to come. Adam put everyone at ease and was a genuinely nice person to talk to.

We would just like to thank dearly Adam for being our wedding photographer for our special day. 
Our wedding was set in a garden marquee in August with perfect weather.
From the start, Adam was greatly enthusiastic with his contact and his portfolio amazed us ! We felt he could capture the memorable moments that we would look back on in the years to come.
Even prior to the wedding, we were able to make changes to the arrangements which meant a lot to us and his suggestions were very helpful with planning the right shots for us.
All our guests were very happy on the day with the style of photography and he made everyone feel comfortable. 
Adam even managed to get the most reluctant of our wedding guests to smile for the camera (including my uncle !)
All in all, it was an pleasure to work with such a great professional and we look forward to using his services again in the near future.

Adam is a lovely guy, and an incredible photographer. On our wedding day, he captured all the great moments by always being in the right place at the right time. In the group photos he was efficient in arranging and placing everyone, and in the bride and groom shots, he captured all the special moments between us. After the wedding, he was very quick to get back to us with the pictures, which are stunning! Thank you, Adam!

Adam was the perfect choice of photographer for our wedding day. He worked really hard behind the scenes to make sure we had the best shots. He captured all the right moments, both candid and posed. We have loved being able to look back on our day - the photos are beautiful and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Adam is lovely to work with and was more than happy to take the photos we asked for. He was patient and kind to all our guests. We've had lots of compliments about how good he was on the day and the photos he's taken. Thank you once again for capturing our day!

Adam’s photos are stunning! He really is a wonderful photographer and a lovely person. At our wedding he was very professional and at the same time fitted in as if one of our guests. He made everyone feel at ease and captured some lovely moments.
Lots of our guests commented on how nice he is. We appreciated his punctuality too.
We can’t thank Adam enough for providing us with memories we will cherish forever.

Review of Adam Burton Photography by Jonathan
5 29/04/2018 Jonathan

When looking for a photographer for our wedding, Adam's style of photography fitted perfectly with the kind of relaxed atmosphere we wanted for our day. His relaxed attitude meant he wasn't obtrusive and he made everybody feel at ease. He let us decide what shots we wanted taken and has such a pleasant manner which a lot of our guests commented on.
From the moment we met Adam, we knew we made the right decision choosing him. Adam allowed the day to flow naturally and never pushed or hurried us, or the guests.
As everyone was relaxed, we believe he has captured the best possible shots. We will treasure these photos forever they are wonderful.
We had an amazing day and are so pleased you were a part of it so thank you.

Having Adam doing our wedding photos was great, not only because his pictures are so beautiful but because he has such a non intrusive presence. He captures the best candid moments and takes great family group shots. All my friends and family got on really well with him. It was a pleasure to have him at our wedding.

Review of Adam Burton Photography by Katie & Chris
5 16/01/2018 Katie & Chris

I can't praise Adam enough, from viewing his professional website to the initial contact with him, he inspired confidence and reassurance, as to what is one of the most important days of your life. His communication was excellent, nothing was too much effort, prior to the build up to the big day he stayed in contact and responded very promptly to emails and phone calls. He arrived early and was relaxed and blended in without being noticed. He managed to capture some excellent pictures with perfect candid moments of us and all our guests. A truly nice guy, which showed throughout the day, he done an amazing job at a competitive & decent price. I would not hesitate to use him again, and his work was filled with praise by several of our friends and family.
Thanks again Adam

Review of Adam Burton Photography by Stacey

Adam was our wedding photographer back in August.
I chose Adam as he had a great portfolio and I really liked the unobtrusive style. I knew that I didn't want the wedding photos to take up a huge part of our day.
Adam really took on my preferences and kept the photos after the vows short and sweet. I loved the way he was snapping all our guests even before I arrived. He really did capture the most lovely natural images of our friends and family.
After our wedding breakfast Adam found a lovely spot just opposite our venue so he could capture a few more shots. I loved the way he really looked into the surrounding area to see where we could get the nicest snaps.
All my guests were very complimentary toward Adam and loved his friendly nature. He really felt like one of our guests by the end of the day!
As you can imagine I was delighted with the images which we received about 10 days after the wedding (super quick)
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Adam and am happy to be contacted to give any further feedback. Adam was an amazing find.
Thank you Adam!

Adam is a fantastic photographer and we both felt totally at ease with his friendly, relaxed and professional style. The wedding photos we received were were excellent and he caught lots of beautiful and magical moments. He gave us a lovely mixture of candid moments and the more traditional posed photos, which was exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend Adam!

5 24/12/2017 John and Diana

Just a quick note to thank you for photographing our special day so well.
You were true to your word and cleverly remained invisible for most of the day whilst still managing to capture the most important pictures.
The relaxed style worked perfectly and captured our guests having fun without the need for a raft of staged photos.

5 07/12/2017 Megan & Sam

We were recommended Adam by a friend and from day one knew we'd found the right photographer. Adam was on hand to answer any questions we had in the build up to the big day and no request was too much trouble.
On the day the traditional photos were stress free and Adam blended in so well with our guests and made them so at ease we have some brilliant natural shots. The quality of the photographs have not left us disappointed and we now have many fabulous memories of the day thanks to Adam.

Adam is a confident and relaxed photographer, making us feel at ease from the moment we met him. He was very discreet throughout our wedding day and got some fantastic candid shots of the guests. He made everyone feel comfortable having their photos taken, and made the portraits run very smoothly and to time. We had every confidence in him, and the photo results prove that he knows exactly what he is doing! We would highly recommend Adam to everyone we know. Thank you ever so much for capturing our special day for us.

Review of Adam Burton Photography by Bethan & James
5 08/07/2017 Bethan & James

Adam was the photographer for our wedding on the 10th June 2017 at the Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor. We chose Adam for the quality of his work, his reasonable price and his understanding of exactly what we wanted from our wedding photography.
In the run up to the wedding, Adam was very helpful and prompt in his replies to emails or queries.
On the day, Adam met me in the bridal suite and explained what he would be doing for the rest of the day. Adam immediately made me feel at ease and began taking photographs.
As my husband and I are not ones for lots of posed photographs, Adam advised he would take a number of more candid shots throughout the day. We were not disappointed in the results! Adam took some great photographs and was completely unintrusive on the day – just what we wanted.
We gave Adam a list of photos that we wanted from the day – group family shots etc and Adam captured all of the ones that we required. He was calm and in control when gathering people for the photos, even when faced with a group of 40 family members ranging from 18 months to 85 years old!
Before we returned from our Honeymoon (two weeks after the wedding) Adam had already sent us the link and password for our online gallery. Looking through all of our photos was just incredible. He had captured so much from the day and so many lovely moments.
I will truly treasure the photos that Adam captured for us forever. They are nothing but fantastic. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone for his professional yet fun attitude towards his work and the range and quality of his images. Thank you Adam

We couldn't have been happier with the service that we received from Adam. He was easy to get hold of if we had questions before the wedding. On the day, he didn't push us to do any forced poses but rather let us be as natural as possible. He took great shots of our guests and went along with exactly our wishes. The results were incredible! We got our pictures within 2 weeks which can't be said for many photographers. Thank you so much for everything Adam!

Thank you so much Adam for such great photographs of our special day. I love a picture and was really panicking about this part of the day. I kept thinking if something goes wrong with your camera the whole day will be gone. But once we met on the day I knew all would be fine. I'm so pleased with the album I can't wait to show everyone and it's definitely more than I expected.
Thank you lots for all you have done and getting back to me when I kept changing things.

FREDA ELCOCK’S 100th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION - photography by Adam.

Adam was the photographer at my mother’s 100th birthday celebration. It was a wonderful event at which the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, Mr Peter Field, presented Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s congratulatory birthday message to Freda.
I cannot praise Adam enough. Adam came to the venue early to familiarise himself with the surroundings. His photographs were superb. Everyone was at ease and Adam organised all of us to get the best shots. He was charming and made the day. The Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex thanked Adam several times and Mr Field put one of Adam’s photographs on his Lieutenancy website.
Adam sent me several photographs for the newspaper the following day as there was a deadline and a few days later put all the photos on disc for me. They were beautifully presented in a CD sleeve. He was prompt even though he was very busy and had other photography to do.
The day would not have been such a success without him. We now have lasting memories of my mother’s 100th birthday. People have said how good the photographs are. Without a doubt he made the day!

Well what can I say about Adam and his genius photography skills?  I was very nervous about having a photographer at our wedding as I am not great in front of the lens but from the offset Adam made us feel at ease.  Adam spent the time to understand who we were and what moments we really wanted to capture, and in my eyes he captured every moment beautifully.  The emotion, happiness and fun we hoped to convey when planning our special day really came across in every photograph and Adam achieved it without us even knowing he was there.  All we can say is a huge thank you Adam we would recommend you to everyone, we are your biggest fans!

We were so pleased with Adam's work. We particularly like his spontaneous style and the relaxed feel to the photos, which was just what we were looking for at our wedding. We were so surprised to see half the photos he took, as he is so good at being able to take a great selection of photos without you really noticing he's there.

Adam Burton Photography Q&A

Adam Burton Photography Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I love the spontaneity and the true happiness of the whole day which is great to capture as a photographer. It is a great feeling when your clients love your photographs and you know that the images will be a memory of their special day forever.

What inspired you to start your own business?

When I was at school my hobby was photography, and in 1997 I completed a degree in photography at university. I always wanted to be a professional photographer and when I shot a friends wedding over 16 years ago, they were so pleased with the results I decided to start a business as a full time wedding photographer.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am an experienced accredited professional photographer and have shot over 500 weddings. I am very friendly and easy going and I can make people feel at ease. Clients are always very happy with my photography and this is reflected in my reviews.
