Karl was the photographer for our wedding on the 4th August 2019. He captured all of the moments that I asked for and much more. He is perfect if you want someone to take photos of those 'relaxed' moments rather than staged. Karl was amazing at being unnoticed throughout the day and delivered us a brilliant USB filled with awesome photos. Thank you so much for everything! More...

I have nothing bad to say about Karl! He was our photographer for our wedding last Saturday, and was friendly and professional from first communication onwards! His style is candid and relaxed, which suited us perfectly, and we hardly noticed him there on the day. We got an email link to all our photos the Friday after our wedding, which surprised a lot of my friends who had waited months for their photos. The portraits we had taken were varied and relaxed, and Karl knew our venue so was able to take photos to compliment its grandeur. The final photos were edited beautifully, and we can't wait to print them and display them for everyone! I would recommend Karl to anyone who wants a relaxed wedding photography experience, capturing the happiness of the day! More...

feel at ease. We're not naturally confident at having our photo taken! We can't rate Karl highly enough. He stuck to our brief of wanting candid shots of the day that didn't feel staged.


Karl photographed our wedding at Ellenborough Park in Cheltenham on 2nd March 2019 and we couldn't have been more pleased with the photos. He was professional and captured our day perfectly. We have beautifully natural photos and he made us both feel at ease. We're not naturally confident at having our photo taken! We can't rate Karl highly enough. He stuck to our brief of wanting candid shots of the day that didn't feel staged.

Karl was incredibly professional and made us feel at ease throughout. We wanted a lot of natural shots and that’s exactly what we got! These captured moments in the day that we weren’t necessarily part of which made the experience of looking through our photos all the more special! More...

Karl was the photographer for our wedding. He was very professional and took some absolutely stunning photos. I know this sounds silly, but Karl was so good at his job he blended in perfectly and we didn't realise any of the candid photos were being taken and they've turned out better than I expected. Thank you Karl for capturing our magical day. More...

My husband and I both absolutely loved our wedding day, it was so beautiful and Karl captured it perfectly - happy tears and all!

Karl's friendly professionalism put everyone at ease, including myself - being the nervous bride and not a massive fan of having my photo taken anyway, Karl's calm and kind demeanour, and ability to just blend into the background really made you forget you were being photographed.

Fantastic communication on the build up to the wedding and after, and speedy processing of our photos! We really can't recommend Karl highly enough! Thank you again Karl!

We hired Karl for our wedding in September 2018. Karl was a true professional, listening to exactly what we wanted and was excellent at communicating leading up to the big day. He was also polite and patient, discreetly capturing some beautiful moments throughout the day which we will forever treasure. We would highly recommend trusting him as your wedding photographer.

Thanks again Karl.

Karl was exactly what we wanted from the beginning. We wanted beautiful natural shots of us and our guests and that's exactly what we got. He was professional from start to finish and during our wedding day he was snapping away without being intrusive to us or our guests. Karl answered any questions we had fully and quickly and it was a pleasure to have him as part of our wedding day and giving us lots of great photos to remember it with. More...

Karl was our wedding photographer in August 2018 and we couldn't speak more highly of him. Firstly, the photos look amazing and exactly what we asked for. He listened to our needs and preferences and gauged the 'feel' of our wedding exactly as we wanted it. Secondly, he is an absolutely lovely, gentle, polite man who made us feel totally at ease. We're both quite shy about having our photo taken, but we had nothing to worry about. Fairly priced, professional and discreet Karl is exactly what we were looking for on our wedding day. More...

Karl captured our wedding to perfection. All our guests commented on what a great person he was. He was so unobtrusive but managed to capture the day exactly as we wanted. I cannot thank him enough. Highly recommend without reservation. More...

Karl was fabulous. The photos he took are absolutely stunning.
All of our family members have said how impressed they are.
I can't believe how quickly the day went but he managed to capture it all so well, all without anyone really noticing meaning we have lovely 'real' photos of people having fun rather than them all being posed and set up.
The speed he sent the photos to us was also brilliant - we were so excited to see them and didn't have to wait months like some of our friends have.
He did such a brilliant job. We are so happy with the results and would be happy to recommend him in the future.

Karl did an amazing job as our wedding photographer in March 2018. He was great at blending in and therefore got some great natural shots, which we just love. He was great with all of our guests and really listened to what we wanted. He is very friendly and approachable and not at all overpowering like some other wedding photographers we have seen at weddings! We are so pleased with all of our pictures and feel that Karl is really great value for money. Thank you so much Karl, can highly recommend - Jodie & Mark x More...

We made no mistake choosing Karl for our blessing, he is a highly skilled and very passionate photographer. As I was pregnant through the planning and on the day, his friendly and approachable personality made this part simple and stress free. Efficient contact prior to the day ment every detail discussed was fulfilled. Our album is beautiful and the day was captured exactly the way we wanted, we definitely recommend!!! More...

Totally professional ! superb quality pictures ! very obliging nothing to much trouble and excellent to work with ! Karl made our day with his fantastic pictures and highly recommend him.



11 October 2017

From the initial booking, to the pre-event consultation, right through to the end of the night on my wedding day Karl was an absolute pleasure to do business with. He even managed to calm my pre-wedding stress a week before the wedding, whilst having a conversation about the shots and final timings etc, he really is just that nice a guy!
Throughout the day itself we barely knew he was there, other than the specific group/couple photos that we requested, it almost felt as if he literally wasn't around, and it felt like this all the way through until we received our photos back, my goodness we were shocked with the amount we had, we were both thinking "when did he even manage to capture these?!"
All of the guests of the wedding have even commented on how "nice a guy the photographer was", and annoyingly upon showing them our wedding photos they don't comment on how good I look, they comment on how fantastic the photos are!!
We really couldn't of asked for anything more from a wedding photographer! Keep it up Karl - you are ace!

As a bride I would thouroghly recommend Karl as a wedding photographer. He was perfect throughout the day, from capturing the morning 'getting ready' shots to some great reactions of our guests during the speeches and finally the dance floor action. He also went off to explore our venue and found a lovely place for some sunset shots that we didn't even know existed. Our guests also commented on how good he was, seemlessly blending in to capture all the events of the day. The turn around for getting the photos back to us was really quick and we were so pleased with the photos which he gave to us in both colour and black and white. A real friendly guy, soo glad he was our photographer, thanks very much! More...

Karl was the most polite photographer i ever met and had spoken to before the big day. The first thing i noticed with karl was he was just generally wanted you to have the best photos and got all the shots you wanted rather than the money like most photographers i spoke to. And thats what we wanted someone who was onviously good but was passionate and cared about our big day. Karl very kindly stayed for a couple of hours extra free of charge just so he could get all the pictures we wanted. All of our guests commented on how lovely he was and how good he was at capturing all the moments throughtout the day as he literally didnt stop. The final photos looked amazing, karl has a real skill for capturing natural shots we are so happy. I would definately recommend karl, if i have any future events ill be using him again. Thank you so much karl More...

Karl is a great professional and has an excellent portfolio. I would recommend Karl to anyone who's looking for a wedding photographer, genuinely nice chap.

Karl was absolutely brilliant to have as our photographer. His photo's captured our special day beautifully, we couldn't have been anymore happy. He is so easy to work with, always there for questions before the big day, and on the day itself he stuck to our brief by taking natural pics whilst also getting the staged family pics etc. We would recommend Karl to anyone and hope that we can see him again at one of our friends Big days. Thanks once again Karl!! More...

10 March 2017

Wow, we've just received our wedding photographs (within 7 days too) and we are so delighted with them! Karl was absolutely fantastic from start to finish, excellent communication all the way through. On the day he had this ability to just blend in and almost disappear into the background which resulted in these absolutely beautiful, natural shots. Exactly what we were hoping for! We received over 1700 photographs which took several cups of tea to go through but we now have hundreds of photographs, representing every element of our day. Not a single thing was missed! We couldn't recommend Karl enough, we were blown away with his professional yet laid back approach & his very special talent for capturing those very special moments! More...

Karl was a fantastic photographer at our wedding on the 20/12/2016. He was prompt and professional with communication prior to the day itself. Being very attentive to our requirements without ever being 'pushy'. He made us and all our guests feel extremely comfortable. Karl is fantastic, approachable and easy going whist also staying professional. He took some lovely formal photos, whilst also capturing some amazing natural shots throughout his time at our wedding. We have received several hundred photographs and there are so many amazing photos to choose from. Our family have enjoyed looking at the weblink photographs which is a great way to share your day. We couldn't recommended him highly enough! He will make you big day even more perfect. More...

Karl was our wedding photographer on 31st August 2016 and we could not have been happier with the service! Karl is very professional yet personable and made us feel really at ease throughout the day, a number of our guests asked about him and said how great he was being.

Karl also got all our photos to us within a week, which was much quicker that we had expected , so we got to enjoy those whilst still on our honeymoon.

I would highly recommend Karl and have been doing so to anyone that will listen! Affordable and fantastic service. Thank you again!

We wanted to thank you so much for everything you did at the wedding - it was absolutely perfect! You really understood what we were after and the amazing pictures are exactly what we were hoping for, we are so happy with them all. We will be highly recommending you to anyone getting married in the future. Showing these pictures to our family and friends is going to be like re-living the best day of our lives all over again as you have captured it all so beautifully and naturally. More...

Karl was our photographer for our wedding on 26/3/16. He was very professional, friendly, adaptable (he attended our netball wedding tournament in the morning as well as the ceremony in the afternoon). He worked with us to get the shots we were hoping for and otherwise was seamless in the background. Our photos are excellent and they were all made available to us very rapidly and in several formats, making them very easy to share with friends and family. Couldn't recommend enough. Everything we were hoping for and more!!! More...

Karl captured our memories on the 5th September 2015, he was very professional and discrete when taking pictures throughout the day of us, our guest and of our special day. Karl didn't miss a moment and his energy and passion came through when we received our pictures.
Karl asked what we wanted before our big day, and made sure he captured ever picture we asked for and also some of his own imaginative and creative ideas too. He visited the venue beforehand to familiar himself with the setting.
Karl is a very friendly, outgoing and passionate photographer and my husband and I were so pleased we chose him for our wedding. Thank you Karl

Karl captured our day perfectly, he is a true gentleman. All throughout the day he discretely caught all our treasured moments. He is professional and passionate about his work, but all the while taking all your needs and expectations into consideration.
He spoke to us in great detail prior to the wedding in relation to what we wanted from the package and what style of photograph we wanted, all to make the day run smoothly, whilst capturing every moment in our desired way.
Karl is polite, patient, enthusiastic and above all, great at what he does. We are over the moon with our pictures and it was all down to his hard work and patience.
I would definitely recommend Karl to anyone looking for an unobtrusive and talented photographer.

Highly highly recommend! Karl is a brilliant photographer! He photographed our Wedding on 16/4/16 and we've had so many wonderful comments about the pictures from our friends and family. Karl is really unintrusive and yet captures photos you had no idea he was getting. We've got a wonderful wedding album now that we will look back on fondly for years and years to come.
Karl's service was also brilliant start to finish. He was prompt at replying to messages, met us at our venue prior to the wedding to discuss requirements, arrived early on the day and stayed later and then had the photos ready for us almost immediately after the wedding! The price was also fantastic.
All in all, we couldn't be happier with our pictures and Karl was a delight to have around throughout our special day and evening.
Thank you Karl :)

Karl photographed our wedding on 14/5/16. We are absolutely delighted with our photos and cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are looking for a wedding photographer I would look no further!

25 May 2016

Karl was absolutely fantastic. He took a wonderful variety of photographs of our wedding ranging from the more formal group photographs, to the casual shots, and also some really lovely images of the tiny details. The photographs are absolutely beautiful. He is really nice and helpful and he was also very good at staying in touch and replying to messages promptly. He also sent us the images very soon after the event. Highly recommended. More...


Experience with photographing weddings has taught me that often the greatest photographs are the ones showing natural emotions. With this in mind I try to merge into the background and go unnoticed documenting the day as it unfolds.

Apart from discussing the details and timings of your wedding day I also like to understand the kind of photographs and styles a client prefers. This is why I think that it is important to speak over the phone or to meet in person to discuss any requirements.

I am very passionate about photography. Weddings are a perfect way for me to use my skills creatively and take the photographs I love the most. I also understand how important your wedding day is to you, and with this in mind I always try to deliver my best work.

Wedding photography is my true passion and I really enjoy making people happy with the photos I take of their special day.

I have been photographing weddings for almost 5 years and I believe that my service is the most competitively priced for the high standard of work I provide. I love photographing weddings and I think that this is shown in my photographs and the kind feedback and reviews previous clients have left for me.
