My wife and I are so pleased we came across Linus when searching for a photographer to shoot our wedding. The photos are stunning, natural and perfectly capture the day. On top of the photos, Linus is a genuine pleasure to work with either side of the event, setting up Skype calls, arranging to meet us beforehand etc. If you are considering Linus to photograph your event, you won’t be disappointed.

We had an idea to shoot some family pics at Corfe Castle, while holidaying from Australia. We found Linus online, reached out and were very glad we did. Linus was very easy to work with, great with our kids and produced a large number of high quality photos. Special memories and a terrific experience. Thanks Linus. More...

From the very first conversation with Linus we knew he was going to do a great job with our wedding photography, and he didn’t let us down! The photos we got back from our special day were really amazing and managed to capture all the memorable moments, from getting ready through to the evening party, so that we’ll have them to treasure forever. What’s more is we got our photos back really quickly (within 3 weeks) which was super, because once the day is over you just want to re-live it! If you looking for a wedding photographer, we couldn’t recommend Linus more highly for your big day. More...

Linus was so lovely from first chat to the end of our day. We felt very at ease with him and that's saying something as my husband hates getting his photo taken! The first sneak peek photos came through after just two days and I love them. His documentary style is exactly what we wanted, natural and fun and captured the essence of the day so much better than a posed shot ever could. He even travelled all the way from Dorset to the North of England. The final edit was perfect, we couldn't be happier with how natural the pictures looked. We recommend him 100% Thank you Linus More...

how utterly perfect, I'm always the one behind the camera taking pictures of the family it was nice to have someone doing that instead. I cannot smile and make it look natural so this was perfect I could just be myself and the end result was some stunning family photos More...

I cannot recommend Linus Moran more highly . He was an absolute pleasure to have around on the day and the resulting images have blown me / all the family away . Linus Is very talented and I can’t recommend him enough. I’ll divide my review into three sections : 1. approach , 2. quality of shots and 3. pricing .1. His approach . Linus set a plan before the wedding about which photos should be ‘caught’ ie as a must - a plan discussed with us beforehand . So, you do need a photographer, in my opinion , who is organised and is going to make sure that he or she gets those certain ‘must have’ shots ie when the light is good/ the rain has stopped/ the opportunity strikes . Linus did that - he made made sure that he got those shots. Example: I wanted outside shots and , in the small ‘rain-free’ window that we had on the day, Linus ‘lined us all up’ and got those shots . So he’s a focused person . But he wasn’t too pushy . He was clearly extremely experienced. What was also good , is that he gets the balance right . For example: at one point, at the wedding breakfast , we started wandering around the tables of guests , so we could say hello to every guest ( so glad we did that ). Linus had reminded me , before I did that, that I had said I ideally wanted certain other shots with certain people . Anyway , because I was so caught up in the wedding , I forgot what Linus had said ( about the further shots) and continued to see the guests . Linus didn’t say to me ‘susan , you really need to stop going round the tables now , as we now need to get shots e f and g ‘ , what he did , was he worked out that we had key shots a b c and d already and that there was a balance to be struck ie between the experience of the day and the need for further ( bonus) good shots. I liked that. I wouldn’t have wanted to miss out on the experience of seeing each of the guests on the day ie just to gain another few ‘bonus shots’ . Linus instead started taking shots of us with the guests as we spoke to them and, funnily enough , those are some of my favourite photographs as it happens . Some photographers, as I understand it , from the wedding coordinator, put the ‘shots’ above the experience , which includes stopping brides for a posed shot on the way down the aisle !! but Linus has got the balance absolutely right . Totally professional . 2. Quality of the shots - Linus’s shots are top quality. The images are really interesting too - they are true portrayals of the wedding , that have somehow managed to pick up on people’s characters and the nuances of people/ the subtleties/ the emotions of the day, ie all of this has been captured on the photos. When I received my photos , It was like relieving the day. Mum and Dad felt the same. I say this as someone who is a tricky customer too! I am a creative person , but as a solicitor, I’m also a detail driven person. On top of that , I have a Dad who has won national awards for photography and who vetted the photographers that I short listed and who picked Linus . Despite Dad and I being quite careful customers, in the sense of having high standards, we were blown away by the quality. The photographs are just excellent .3. A totally fair price for an amazing photographer - . More...

"Gosh he was bloody good wasn't he!" said so many of our guests who have seen our wedding photos. And he was! Linus managed to capture the whole feel to the day in his photos including the funny and emotional moments. It was wonderful to see the parts of the day that we had both missed and the photos of our guests arriving and enjoying themselves. Linus was very friendly and professional from start to finish and put us at ease throughout the whole process. He even managed to iron out a couple of hiccups on the day for us as well! Cannot recommend enough! More...

Linus did a 'Day in the Life' photoshoot with us. We were immediately put at ease by his calm and easy demeanour, his relaxed approach with the kids, capturing those intimate shots without being intrusive, his professionalism in the midst of the chaos of 3 lively children. With skill and foresight he immortalised precious memories that we will treasure forever. We loved his style of natural, un-posed, everyday, real and raw moments. He captured the individuality of our 3 children perfectly, their energy and zeal for life, their every changing facial expressions and mannerisms that can be lost in a blink of an eye! Thank you for this incredible opportunity! More...

Linus was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. An exemplary professional and very talented photographer. Our biggest request was to have real, natural photos of our day and we wanted to feel as if the photographer was hardly visible. Linus managed this wonderfully and the result is that we have the most stunning photos ever!! Thank you so much. More...

Linus,Thank you so, so much for capturing our two days in the most magnificent way. When we originally viewed your portfolio, we were very excited to meet you and discuss what we wanted from a wedding photographer. After speaking with you just the once, we knew you were the right man for the job, but we couldn’t have imagined that we would have received such stunning images – far beyond our expectations.You and Will were both a pleasure to work with during the preparation and everything we discussed, as to how we pictured our wedding was captured in images that will be with us for a lifetime. Looking back at them brings back such wonderful and vivid memories despite the two days flying by! You captured so many intimate moments whilst people were unaware of your presence, making it all the more special. The way in which you both conducted yourselves throughout the two days was also highly praised by our friends and family… if my dad thinks you did a great job, as a fellow photographer, then that is very high praise indeed!! The trouble now comes with deciding which photos we would like putting into an album and printing for our home as there are so many to choose from.Thank you for documenting BOTH wedding days so brilliantly, and we very much hope to cross paths with you again in the near future.Chris & Beena More...

Wow! I cannot rate Linus's photography of our wedding highly enough. His full set of pictures is more than just a generic wedding album it's like an entire story book of the day which doesn't only capture the main events or smaller details of the day but also captures the emotion felt through every part of it in the most natural way. We are so happy and feel so lucky to have a set of photos which will enable us to relive the day so vividly for the rest of our lives, remembering how every moment really felt and not just what it looked like. Linus's style is so natural and candid that these pictures won't date or age - no uncomfortable posing and no unnatural filters over anything, they're just timeless and all of our guests have been blown away by them - many being bought to tears by them. In the lead up to the wedding, Linus made sure he knew exactly what we wanted in terms of both general style and specific formal photos and we couldn't have felt more at ease and full of total confidence in him. During the day itself we totally switched off from wondering whether or not each moment was being captured how we wanted it to be, we just knew he had it all in hand. And sure enough, just over a week after the wedding, Linus sent us the whole album. We couldn't believe how quickly they arrived! Looking through the full set we got to see so much of the day that both of us had missed, it's like he was everywhere at all times and yet he was never intrusive. I have no idea how he managed this...it was a big house with many different rooms and areas outside and somehow he didn't miss a thing! 100% track record of 5 star reviews for Linus is no surprise and absolutely well deserved. We can't thank you enough Linus!!! Chad & Melanie Maunsel House, Somerset - 13.10.2018 More...

Linus is an incredible photographer. From day one of planning our Wedding he was engaged with our plans and we had a great meeting telling him all of our ideas right at the very beginning. On the Wedding Day Linus was calm, professional and a great presence to have around. Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and we could not ask for them to be anymore perfect. Me and my Husband are not the best in front of the camera, but Linus didn't make us stand and pose all day, he really captured the natural emotion of the day. Just like it says 'Subtle, Emotive and Raw'. We can't thank you enough Linus.Jacob and Grace Ralston 11.08.2018 More...

Thank you so much for capturing our day so beautifully. You have really captured the mix of emotion, laughter and fun moments of the whole day. Our guests who we have shared the link with so far have cried and laughed allover again and think it is such a good collection. You certainly got around the grounds and even captured things we weren't aware was happening at the time whilst we were with other guests which really creates a full picture of our day and gives us memories to treasure for the rest of our lives.

Superb Photographer! Linus was engaged and proactive about the plans for our wedding from the start, and makes sure he's very well prepared, taking a keen interest in the plans for the day. My wife and I wanted someone to simply take care of the photography, so we didn't have to worry. We didn't want too many 'staged' photos, and just wanted someone to go around the wedding and capture the genuine feel and mood of the day whilst going unnoticed and unobtrusive.Linus is a professional and spent the entire day getting on with the job and managed to capture lots and lots of images that we loved and didn't even have a clue he was taking them or where he was. Afterwards, we wanted some top-quality prints (that won't fade) and an album, his services on that front were prompt and the results were great. If you and your loved one a looking for a photographer of high standards and great service then Linus comes highly recommended from us! More...

Linus was fantastic and I would highly recommend him. He was able to capture the true emotions of the day without having to stand around for hours having photos taken, which meant we could enjoy every second of the day and have still have fantastic photos. I would definitely recommend the photo film as this records the speeches whilst watching your photos so you can really relive the day ! We were so pleased with the whole service! Thanks Linus x More...

It's hard to know where to start with Linus and his wonderful photos.. It's not just that our wedding photos exceeded all our possible expectations, or that he was an absolute pleasure to have around on our wedding day; the whole experience was just fantastic. Linus was always available - on the end of the phone or email to discuss plans and reassure us (on everything, even non photography related!). When we met at our engagement shoot we were immediately put at ease and had an absolute blast, with stunning photos as a result. On our wedding day Linus was a pleasure to have around (greatly impressing our guests and my Dad (an ex-photographer) with his 'diligence' and 'effortlessness'. Linus really captured the story of our wedding and the photos we will spend the rest of our lives pouring over are so beautiful (not an easy task when the bride has a side of her face she doesn't like and the groom doesn't want to appear shorter than the bride...). Linus listened to everything we wanted and went above and beyond - we cannot thank him or recommend him enough. He will be the best wedding decision that you make (aside from choosing to get married of course..!). Thanks so much, the new Mr&Mrs Foulds X More...

I don't know where to start. I love photographs and didn't know where to start looking for our wedding photographer. A friends highly recommended Linus and let's say the rest is history.

From the moment I first met Linus I was filled with confidence & his photographs speak for themselves....stunning!

Linus was extreamly professional from first meeting, run up to the wedding, on the day and to receiving our beautiful photographs. In the nicest possibly way we hardly saw him on our day yet he captured the most beautiful photos. It was as if he was in the front row seat for capturing the images he did yet we were totally unaware of him being there.

Me and my husband don't like posing for photos and not once did we have to do this. Linus just told us to enjoy our day and he would capture it as it unfolded....and wow he certainly did and much more.

I'd highly recommended Linus to everyone as their wedding photographer.

Thank you again Linus, from a very happy Mr & Mrs Newton ���

Linus Moran has been incredible. From the initial phone call he was warm, friendly and extremely helpful. Looking through his beautiful portfolio of work on his website gave us a great insight into how he would capture our day although we have only had a few images through so far these have already exceeded our expectations they truly are beautiful. Throughout the day Linus was fantastic, giving advice and capturing every moment of the day in his documentary style with some nice group photos to add into the mix. I can not wait to see the rest of the finished images and video work. Thank you Linus More...

How a photographer can understand you so thoroughly in just a few short meetings is amazing. I knew when I met Linus that I needed him to be my photographer and it’s the best decision we made. The documentary style of his images speaks of the day how it really was. It’s not all glamour and posing, smiling for the camera. It’s capturing real emotions. Showing the day how it really was, from ugly crying to hysterical laughing! Linus managed to be invisible most of the day... there are shots where I didn’t even notice he was there!
Linus adapted to the day as it evolved including an impromptu speech by myself, and captured everything effortlessly. I would thoroughly recommend the photo film to anyone as it gives you audio of he day which can otherwise be forgotten! Amazing!!

What can we say... Linus was great! He is a genuinely likeable person, spending time with us before the wedding to answer all of our questions and put us at ease. Closer to the date, there is another call & questionnaire that you complete to make sure that he fully understands the plan.On the day of our wedding, we had an uninvited guest. Storm Brian decided to show up! Linus was very calm and adapted to the changeable conditions with ease. Once the photographs were back from being processed, we were very very pleased. The chronology and narrative of the day was really well captured in the reportage/natural style that we were after. We also had a few more formal group shots taken for our parents.All in all, highly recommended!(Linus - sorry it has taken a while to get this review up!) More...

Thank you Linus.

Linus and his associate Will photographed our wedding in May 2017, but our journey with them started some months before. Linus took care to meet with us well in advance of our wedding to understand more about us as a couple and what are hopes were for the big day. On the day itself Linus and Will conducted themselves with the upmost professionalism dusted with a sprinkling of good humour and fun! They captured the most wonderful moments of our day including the tender and emotionally charged moments that were so special to us and also the fun and crazy moments. The natural style of the photographs truly makes them timeless and we cannot recommend Linus more highly! Fiona & Charlie Archer More...

Thanks Linus for making our wedding day so incredibly special with your amazing wedding photos of our special day. We don't know how you did it with such limited light in the church. Linus is a true professional and we cannot believe how wonderful our wedding photos are. We will have them forever to look back on and remember our absolutely perfect wedding day.

Linus was exceptional helpful and professional both in the build up to our wedding and on the day. He was very discreet when taking photos in the church and at the reception and I still can't quite get my head around how he managed to dart across each venue without anybody noticing.

We received the final copies of the photos as soon as we got back from honeymoon and are thrilled with the end result. I'd highly recommend him for any event you want capturing.

“Linus has a special talent for capturing the emotion of the moment. He somehow is in the right place at the right time, and without intruding into the day, really captured the essence of our day, from start to finish in a way that I think very few photographers could. He’s delivered on all the ’standard’ and expected wedding pictures and far more. He caught so many key moments, glances, emotions, feelings, and the passion and excitement of the people. He’s also professional, genuine and friendly, took time to meet with us before the day and get to know us, and really put in the time and effort on the day to make sure everything went smoothly. Wonderful pictures, our special day recorded forever, 100% recommended – we couldn’t have asked for more!” More...

Thank you Linus for doing such an amazing job of capturing our day. Not only did you get some stunning photos of us and our guests, you really captured the feeling and emotion of our day. All the photos were beautifully presented and the photofilm with the soundbites from the wedding brings back wonderful memories every time we watch it.The service Linus provided us from start to finish was excellent. He walked us through every step, helped us select the right package for us and did a wonderful pre wedding shoot in Bath. Everyone wants to feel that their big day is the most special, and Linus did his utmost to keep that feeling alive long after the big day. Photos arrived promptly on return from honeymoon despite it being in the middle of wedding season! What a pleasure to relive the moment before going back to work. What a pleasure to do business with a nice guy! One of the absolute best decisions I made in respect to the wedding. Thank you very much for making our day even more special and for helping us keep the memories alive for years to come. More...

I didn't expect the process of having our wedding photos to be so fun, but we actually had a real laugh chatting and getting into poses! The final photos are fantastic - they really captured the fun atmosphere of the day, and managed to get a good variety of all the guests too. I would highly recommend Linus and Oana.

From our initial consultation until we received our final photos, Linus was professional, friendly and eager to help us. Our photos are truly beautiful and capture the highlights of our day as well as natural moments of our guests enjoying our wedding. The quality of our photos are superb. Linus communicated with us regularly throughout the whole process making sure that we had control over what we wanted. However, his skill and expertise are clearly evident and we let him have pretty much a free reign and we have no regrets there.As the sun was setting, Linus took us to the beach away from our guests and captured some amazing portrait shots on the beach. The shots were natural and really captured the mood of the day!I would highly recommend Linus as he is friendly, professional and we think he has great vision for wedding photography. More...

We are simply over the moon at the pictures we got from our daughter's christening.Linus has a brilliant eye for moments, whether it be laughter or tears, that no one else will capture.His shots record the true essence of the day, often with a keen sense of humour. And yet you hardly know he's there. You'll have the time of your life at your special day, and then you'll have it again when you see his pictures.If you want an unobtrusive photographer, but still want the very best images to sum the day up perfectly, Linus is brilliant at both. We are so glad we hired him for our event and now have a collection of treasured memories which will last a lifetime.We can't recommend him highly enough. More...

Linus and Will did an absolutely fantastic job of capturing our wedding day. They made us feel relaxed by subtly capturing the moments without making them styled. They captured so much of the day, the looks, the smiles, the tears and the laughter. They understood that since we live away, we did not want to spend a long time doing separate shots, or hundreds of group shots, and instead captured the more real moments of the day. We would highly recommend them! More...

There are not many photographers that can capture the story of your wedding day as Linus can.

Where can we start! Linus our wedding photos are absolutely amazing, beautiful and stunning and more than we ever wanted. You captured every detail, every emotion of myself, Matt and all of our guests. You took photographs which we didn't even know were happening. They are completely faultless, I would 1000000% recommend you. You were so professional, but you still had a laugh with us, you are an absolutely amazing photographer.Thank you once again Lou and Matt More...

Couldn't be happier with Linus and Chris! They made us feel utterly at ease and the shots are stunning. Very calming and professional. If you want a documentary style shoot for your wedding then you will not be disappointed. More...

Absolutely amazing photographer! We traveled all the way from the US to the UK for a small intimate wedding with our families. The one thing I wanted the most was someone amazing to capture our day. Linus certainly did that! We could not have asked for more beautiful photos! Excellent! More...

Linus photographed our wedding at Huntsham Court. He not only managed to make me (the groom) look something approaching photogenic (a first, trust me), but managed to make all of our reprobate friends also look presentable despite ever increasing drunkeness and degrees of nudity. Seriously, if you are thinking about it, book him. His photos are great and he is a jolly good chap to have around. I will definately book him for my next wedding......... More...

Linus was truly fantastic and I would highly recommend to everyone. He was able to capture the true emotions of the day and we didn't have to stand around posing for hours to do so. This meant we got to enjoy every second of the day and have the memories captured so beautiful. I would also highly recommend the video film that Linus does as it means you can listen to the speeches again whilst watching a film of photos, which made us laugh and cry!!! But was again another lovely way to capture the memories! More...

Linus, did such a great job during our wedding in Dorset, he must have darted around so quickly capturing our ceremony as he managed to get every angle possible, including some great close ups of our faces. He was so unobtrusive, we hardly noticed he was there! It is also brilliant that you have different packages to choose from depending on your budget. We would definitely recommend! More...

We found Linus by doing a simple Google search for a photographer in Dorset and from our first meeting we knew we had made the right choice. We went through the different packages available and together choose the perfect one for us. On the the day Linus was amazing , he went above and beyond all of our expectations. Many of our guests thought he was one of our friends as he fitted in so well and was a joy to have there . The photos of our wedding are stunning , we could not be happier with them and all of our family agree! We could not recommend Linus highly enough , he is extremely professional , a great photographer and a really nice guy who helped make our wedding great. More...

Linus photographed our wedding in July 2014 and captured the true sensations of the day perfectly. I was delighted that he had managed to catch so many of the little personal moments we had with our guests as well as handmade details, landscape/scenery shots and beautiful posed shots. He was so discreet on the day, I didn't notice him at all in church but he captured some very special moments in the service which we will treasure. He was a pleasure to have around and easy to communicate with in the run up and after the wedding.All in all I would definitely recommend Linus to anyone looking for documentary wedding photos to tell the story of their day.

Linus is a consummate professional with his work and at the same time calm and a great bloke to have around. Linus gave us an amazing set of wedding pictures which are technically brilliant and so much more representative than set groups and set shots. Linus captured the whole day unobtrusively (and was complimented by many of the wedding party). Neither my wife nor I would say we are particularly photogenic but whether you are or not, Linus will capture the day, naturally, as it happens. Linus' preparation of our printed wedding album was equally professional with tweaks to the end product easily accommodated. We cannot recommend Linus' services highly enough. More...

It was a real pleasure working with Linus. His journalistic instincts with a camera made it very seamless and was exactly the type of relationship we wanted to have with our wedding photographer.We held several briefing calls, Linus paid a visit to the venue in advance and scouted nearby locations, as well as delivering exceptional service on the day. We were keen to avoid the slightly more traditional and static family photographs that you can often see at weddings, and Linus did a great job capturing a wide range of touching action shots throughout the day. I would recommend him to anyone interested in a wedding photographer. More...

Hi Linus,We want to thank you for capturing the most beautiful photographs of our wedding, we are thrilled with the outcome and love the combination of formal and informal pictures. We also thank you for the way you discreetly captured the pictures from the ceremony. We shall have beautiful pictures to enhance our memories for the future years. More...

When we started planning our wedding, I knew choosing the right photographer would be one of the most important things to me. After typing wedding photographers in Weymouth into Google, Linus' website was the first one I chose to look at. As soon as I saw his style of photography, I said to my fiancé, "I've found our photographer". Our engagement shoot was brilliant, and Linus made us both feel at ease in front of the camera, something which did not naturally come to us. On the actual wedding day Linus was extremely professional and unobtrusive, and took truly beautiful natural photographs. Capturing laughs, smiles, tears and plenty of dancing, they really documented the most amazing day, giving us a lifetime of memories. He also produced some lovely group shots, which we love, but they were taken effortlessly without taking up too much of the guests time. I would highly recommend Linus as your wedding photographer, especially if you want wedding photos that you can treasure forever. Many of our guests commented on how good he was, a sign I think of a very talented photographer. Thank you Linus More...

We chose Linus to be the photographer for our Wedding day at The Cove House Inn, Portland in February 2014. We had a stunning sunny day after the weeks of severe storms which nearly saw our venue washed away down Chesil beach! On our wedding day we had calm seas and blue skies and were able to have photos on the beach.We opted to have a small wedding with just our close family and Linus captured the day beautifully. We would highly recommend him - so much so that we have asked Linus to come and photograph our Wedding party in July. More...

Heidi & I got married at Faith House, Dorset, August 2013. We both knew exactly what style of photographer we wanted for our big day, and it took us a while to find someone suitable... after a long search, Linus was recommended to us by a friend who works in photography.Linus took the time to meet us at the venue several weeks before our wedding day, to get to know us, the venue and the plans for the day. We walked around the venue and discussed what we wanted from our photos and Linus gave us lots of good ideas for getting the most out of the venue, buildings and landscape. It was immediately clear that Linus is very passionate about we he does and would be making every effort to ensure the photos were perfect.From the morning right through to the end of the evening, Linus was unobtrusive, hardworking and professional. When crowds needed to be organised for the few group shots Linus took control of the situation, from the top rung of a step ladder, and ensured that images were taken quickly so that the flow of the day was not disrupted.Somehow Linus managed to get a great range of photos from almost all conceivable vantage points during those heightened moments of the ceremony, speeches and the first dance, yet somehow without anyone noticing him being there. That is an essential and invaluable quality of a wedding photographer.We specifically wanted a reportage style photographer to document our day, rather than staging a series of photographs, and that is exactly what Linus gave us. Every time we look through the photos it is as though we are reliving the day and it is exactly as we remember it happening. The photographs have great depth and reward the viewer in that the more you look at them, the more you'll notice. Content, depth of field and composition are always carefully considered.Finally the style of the photographs is the main reason we chose Linus and the main reason we would highly recommend him for your wedding - just take a look through his portfolio.Thanks Linus!

Very professional, very satisfactory in all ways. Linus Moran was retained to take photographs at a large family gathering we hosted at Moonfleet Manor, Weymouth. The quality of the formal photos was excellent and he took many informal photos which added a great deal to the feel of the occasion. He was most generous with the time he made available and he operated in a low key and thoroughly<span id="moreReview512181" class="hide"> pleasant way. <br />Highly recommended by us and we would have no hesitation in using him again. <br />Bill Erasmus 15 August 2014.</span> More...

We asked Linus to take some photos of a family gathering at Moonfleet Manor in Dorset. We were not prescriptive with what we wanted but the resulting pictures were superb with both formal group shots and informal shots in the grounds. Linus is a true professional whose unobtrusive manner created an enjoyable experience and a lovely record of a rare family holiday - thank you Linus. More...

I googled ‘Wedding Photographer Weymouth’ and it just happened that ‘Linus Moran Photography’ was the first link I clicked on. As soon as I saw the photographs on Linus’ website I knew that I wanted him to be our wedding photographer and no-one else. The photographs were so beautiful and natural and captured moments that would probably be over in a blink of an eye. My fiancé and I knew that this was a photographer with a real gift for producing some amazing images. Linus’ documentary style was just what we were looking for and knew that the end product would be something very special. Linus has a great, professional approach but also a warm and friendly one. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him from start to finish. Our engagement shoot was lots of fun and he made us feel really at ease in front of the camera. The photos that came from this were stunning, both of us didn’t feel we were particularly photogenic but Linus made us look like Hollywood stars!On our wedding day Linus worked his socks off to make sure that every moment of the day was captured. Many of our guests commented on how hard he worked and that they weren’t always aware he was there, a real talent when trying to get unposed photos which was this bride’s main request!We excitedly went to view our photos one evening recently and within minutes I was reduced to tears…ones of joy I hasten to add! The photos were breathtaking and surpassed what we had hoped for. The images perfectly captured all of our special day and they tell the story of a perfect wedding surrounded by the people who mean the most to us. They capture all the smiles, tears, laughter and the moments we were not there to see. There are so many pictures that we love that we are not sure how to choose for our album!I cannot recommend Linus highly enough. I would sing his praises from every rooftop in Dorset (and beyond) for giving us an incredible set of photographs that we utterly adore and will be treasured forever more. Kate & Finn Sloss More...

We chose Linus as the photographer for our wedding in Pennsylvania Castle, Dorset. During the day, he was very professional and unobtrusive, yet still able to take beautiful shots of all of the key moments during the day. We chose him based on the quality of the work on his website, and also his style, preferring photojournalism as a way to memorialise the day. This style enables the end portfolio to present a story of the day’s events, and the resulting photo film he created was just great.Upon reviewing the photos with our guests, a common comment (besides how fantastic the pictures are) is how the photographers managed to capture the shots they did, as no-one remembers them being there. This highlights their skill, of being able to fade into the background while still taking and producing outstanding photographs. Whilst maintaining his documentary style throughout the day, Linus was also able to take some great group and portrait shots which we are very happy to have in the final portfolio. We are extremely impressed by the quality of his work, as evidenced by the honesty of the photos on his website, and would highly recommend him to others. More...

Linus Moran’s photography..... where to start?! Linus has a real talent and passion for what he does! He has a fantastic artistic eye for taking natural candid shots; they are superbly composed in a refined and creative way. Additionally, Linus is so very skilful at merging inconspicuously into the back ground and moving around unnoticed; yet he still manages to capture the close up shots brilliantly! We’re still baffled as to how he did it! Thankfully, he is very relaxed and is willing to go with the flow, which was convenient as on our wedding day, this involved him joining us on route from the church to our reception in a boat! We are so thrilled with our photo album and photofilm. Every time we look at it, we spot something new that we haven’t noticed before. Our friends and family have all commented so positively on his outstanding photography and his attention to detail which is second to none. We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful and imaginative pictures you captured on our special day. One word - stunning! More...

My one wedding tip would be to book Linus Moran Photography to capture your special day – I can guarantee you will not be disappointed! The album and photofilm that he created for us was more than we could have ever have wished for. The album is a truly beautiful piece of art from the happiest day of our lives and to have a photofilm which captures in audio the magical, moving and happy moments really is the icing on the cake.Linus’ passion for photography is certainly obvious however his ability in making two incredibly un-photogenic people look good is a true skill! From the first contact he was highly professional and helpful – even with a slightly picky bride who wanted all the t’s crossed and and i’s dotted! On the day we can honestly say you wouldn’t have known we had a photographer present, as he was so unobtrusive, yet the photo’s he took fitted into the casual documentary style we were hoping for. Many of our guests have commented since on how wonderful they think the photos are and the fact they are now being printed in a wedding magazine is a true testament to Linus.You will cherish the images of your wedding for the rest of your life....make sure they are amazing.....make sure you book Linus!

Linus has been fantastic since the moment we met him. Being quiet people we were a little nervous at first, but Linus made us feel comfortable and relaxed.Our engagement photos were amazing, a true taster of what was to come and we were so excited to share them with friends and family.When the big day arrived, Linus was committed, attentive and nothing was too much to ask. His style captured the most natural photos which re-live every moment. I was so pleased to find that he managed to capture all 13 minutes of my Dad's gruelling speech!But what really made us smile was the heart-felt photofilm he produced. It was like being there all over again and made every moment special.We've had nothing but lovely comments from friends and family and would highly recommend Linus to anyone. Thank you so much for making our day so special and I'm sure we'll see you again in the future. More...

Linus's talent really came through on our special day, we loved his attention to detail and the way he seems to catch all those natural shots. You look at the photos and you know exactly what was going on at the time. His approach is casual yet professional, he makes you feel at ease from the start- you wouldn't even know he was there. But at the same time he seems to capture a moment in time which would last a lifetime. Also his photo film was outstanding, edited using a romantic piece of music and the soundtrack of the speeches running over a time appropriate photo reel. It bought the day back to life again and its a great way of showing people who couldn't make it. I would recommend Linus to anybody getting married who appreciates modern, sophisticated photography at a competitive rate. Thanks Linus More...

I decided to book my wedding September 2010, I all ready had a venue and was looking to find all the other things to go with it.I no the photographer is going to be the next most important thing along with my bride Jo so I set out in search of one, it was kind of a mind field as I was not good at things like that at the time but ive got a bit of an art for it now.After about a month of searching I had a few names in hand but one keep swaying me back to the page of a photographer called Linus Moran there was just something different about the photographer that I liked and a chance meeting at a wedding fair on Portland Dorset that was it he was booked.I cant put into words what a good choice that was from the first time we met to now in March 2013 over 2 years Linus has been fantastic from the pre wedding shoot the wedding day on 22 September 2012 and the album he put together was a work of art and just to top things off he put together a photo film of are wedding day which had the day in speech along with the photos along side.If u are reading this and are looking to book a photographer for yor wedding ect trust me you will not go wrong in booking Linus Moran Photography.Myself and my wife are so happy with the outcome and have these lovely things to look at and view for ever and ever.So thanks again Linus for all you did for us and will not hesitate if we need anything done again.Andrew and Joanne ValenteWeymouth Dorset More...

Linus did an amazing job of capturing the spirit of our wedding day and I can't recommend him highly enough. He listened, made sure we felt at home with him and always kept us in the loop. He fitted in perfectly on the day and apart from the shoot we did with just the two of us, we hardly noticed him. And yet, he didn't stop working for the entire day and gave us the most amazing collection of images. We have photos and, with them memories, that we will cherish forever and I wouldn't hesitate in hiring him again to work with our family - in fact with an ever growing bump I hope to be in touch in the spring to arrange a shoot to capture that! Thanks Linus for all your hard work! More...
