From the first time we met Peter we were blown away by his approach, we had met a few photographers who had all tried to guide us in a certain direction with regards to the type of shots and shoot we wanted. Peter was completely focused on what we wanted, he listened to all of our requests and remembered all of the little bits that were important to us, it felt so personal. The pictures that peter captured of out wedding day were amazing, we could not have asked for more! We even had our lively pooch with us and god knows how Peter did it but he got some fantastic shots. No request was too much, even some post edit tweaks. The prints and final presentation box are perfect and will be kept for many years. He was easy to work with and interacted with the guests extremely well without being intrusive at all, a genuine nice guy and a tremendous photographer. We could not recommend any more if you are looking for a wedding photographer Mark and Emma. More...

Where do we start with Pete?! We got married in May 2019 and from the moment we found him we knew he was the photographer for us! He understood exactly what we wanted, really relaxed, real photos. I had a Skype call with Pete a few months before the day and it was like I’d known him for ages! He was more than happy to travel down to us and seemed genuinely excited about being a part of our day. On the day, he made us feel so at ease and it was actually such a pleasure to have him be such an important part. All of our guests said how lovely and funny he was and how he entertained the younger guests, all whilst getting the most amazing photos. We are so in love with our photos, we really couldn’t ask for anything more. He got them all to us in a great time, while sending us a few sneak peaks in between! The quality and care you get is sooooo worth the money. Genuinely feel like we’ve made a friend in Pete and I wish him so much love and success for the future. Thank you for being exactly what we wanted and more!!!! Charity & Paul xxx More...

Myself and my husband can't put into words how fantastic Pete is. We've had an amazing journey with Pete, from having a photoshoot done with him early on in us dating, to my husband organising a surprise engagement shoot (Pete captured the moment Callum got down on one knee! ), to then photographing the most wonderful day of our lives-our wedding day! Pete is so talented, capturing every small detail and precious moment, and on top of that, he's just a lovely, fun person, all of the guests at our wedding commented on how lovely and professional he was (to the point where one of my bridesmaids who recently got engaged is now considering using him for her wedding). Honestly, if we ever need a photographer, we will always pick Pete, he's just so fantastic, and we have loved seeing his business grow, and we can't wait to continue seeing his successes, because he really deserves it. We love you Pete! More...

My husband Rad came across Peter on Facebook after knowing him at college. I’d been looking for a photographer who I thought would suit our rustic style wedding and capture what I hoped to be the most fun ever. So seeing Pete’s natural images I knew he was the photographer for us. In the lead up to the wedding which was on 25th May 2019 Pete was so attentive to us and kept in regular contact and I was following him on social media and every time he posted a new blog it just got us more and more excited! Then we met a week before the wedding and it felt like we were just meeting a mate going off on tangents about new music coming out! When Pete arrived on the wedding day it was just like he was another guest, it was amazing how he floated around through the groups of people helping out and even running little errands for us! He really did just fit in with our family and friends and was the perfect mix between being subtle but also not invisible. We had so many comments even now about what a sound guy he is, chilling round our Indian village of teepees with the lads before the ceremony and making up Drag names with the girls in the dressing room. We got our photos back and honestly couldn’t even have imagined how unreal they would be! He captured moments that we didn’t even know were happening. Our wedding was a 3 day event and we just thought of it as one massive party and Pete’s photos really captured that, he caught such natural and sometimes hilarious shots of our most loved people just having a great time. Really focused on the celebration of everything instead of formalities. We loved having Pete as our photographer, especially seeing him bawl his eyes out at Rads speech!! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts! ❤️ More...

Peter did the photos for my sister’s wedding in April and I was maid of honour. He couldn’t have been lovelier to have around all day. He made us feel so at ease and I can’t wait to see more of the photos! I would 100% recommend him to anyone. In fact, I already have! More...

From the first time my husband and I met Pete, we knew he would do an amazing job of our wedding photography. His communication was great before the wedding so we knew exactly what was going to happen on the day. From the instant he got there he made myself, my bridesmaids and flower girl feel really at ease with him taking our photos. He captured the fun of the day in a completely non formal way which was exactly what we wanted. Lots of our guests commented on how it seemed as if we already knew each other, because we clicked so well. He seemed to be everywhere on the day and taking photos of all the key moments, yet he was completely unobtrusive and melted into the wedding guests. Pete stayed for most of the day and at the end of the night was still snapping away! We absolutely LOVE our photos and were so impressed at the speed with which he turned them around and also the presentation of them in the box. If you haven’t already booked Pete for your wedding photography then do it right now. More...

Where do I begin? Pete was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! When I first met pete on my actual wedding day he got stuck in straight away and made everyone feel so at ease with having their pictures taken, he made the whole process so enjoyable and easy. Not only that he was able to banter on with everyone which made it such fun! He kept us informed the whole process when editing our pictures and when we recieved the final product we were blown away! we both absolutely adore all the photos of our special day (which is making it so hard to pick one to be made into a canvass) they show our wedding perfectly, everyone having fun, dancing and laughing which is how we both will always remember it. I can't thank pete enough for being such a cool, calm and fun guy and capturing our day perfectly! I highly recommend pete to anyone looking for an amazing photographer! More...

I first met Pete at a friends wedding in 2016 and immediately booked marked him for my own (when the day would come). He was the first vendor I booked when I got engaged in 2017 and I will forever recommend him to anyone I get the chance to. Pete is the perfect balance of professional and approachable. I found wedding planning very difficult, but every step along the way organising photography was very easy with him. After the wedding, he maintained contact, updating us at every step, feeding us plenty of sneak peaks to share with family and friends and it was one of the quickest turn arounds I've ever seen for edits being ready. Contact is so important with vendors and Pete outshone them all. On the day he was a calming addition to the 'getting ready' process and maintained this throughout the day, especially with myself and my husband being nervous in front of the camera. Of all the weddings I've been to Pete is undoubtedly one of the least intrusive photographers I've come across, meaning that the guests don't feel bombarded and the photos capture the true essence of the day. As happens there were organisational hiccups through out the day, but Pete was incredibly flexible with what we kept changing, and helped us remember that the day was about us. The photos are stunning. Truly. As a plus-size bride I was nervous about receiving the pictures but he has a way of making people feel incredibly comfortable, like you're just hanging out with a friend, and the photos reflect this. Capturing detail was as important to us as capturing guests and he struck the perfect balance of friends and family, the bride and groom and the tireless detail we had all put into the day. If you're looking for a friendly addition, to capture what your day and what your love FEELS like, there's no one else to do it but Pete. He is a rare gem in the wedding community, who has a genuine talent and passion for what he does and does it all with a smile. 10,000/10 every time. More...

Peter photographed our wedding back in October- he did an incredible job from start to finish (a 12 hour day, at least!) and went the extra mile for us, in agreeing to shoot some photos on 35mm, along with the usual digital shots. I think this is probably a great rarity, so it was lovely to work with someone who was so accommodating and flexible to our needs, with not a whiff of a whinge from Pete! Pete has been a pleasure to work with and has always been easy to make contact with- so many brides seem to have problems in this area, but Pete's never been less than prompt, clear and courteous in his communication. Pete is fairly new to the 'wedding photography' business and I know for some people, they maybe feel they are taking a 'risk' in booking someone with a smaller portfolio; however, Pete's talent and creativity is in no way compromised by this- his photos are testament to that, alone. You just have to look at the breadth and variety of shots he has taken at different weddings to appreciate his skill in both natural/voyeuristic shots as, too, more posed or orchestrated photos.

Peter Hugo was very professional and made everyone feel so relaxed throughout the day. He was discreet when we needed him to be and he captured all the photographs we wanted and many many more. When the photographs arrived, we instantly looked through them all and it was like re-living the day; Peter had captured every moment exactly how we remembered them and told the story of our wedding perfectly. I would definitely recommend an engagement shoot. I don’t particularly like having my photo taken, so the engagement shoot really helped. I was able to get to know Peter and get used to him taking photographs of me. It also meant that I knew what he was going to do on the wedding day and I was so much more relaxed. We cannot recommend Peter Hugo enough, he was absolutely amazing! More...

Pete is fantastic! his photos are beautiful! .. We had so much fun having Pete photograph our wedding, felt like a friendly addition to our day. In the nicest way possible, I forgot he was there haha.. he didn't intrude, wasn't bossy but got all the photos we wanted. He just came took great photos and made us giggle! Pete came smartly dressed and fitted in with the rest of the wedding party which is what we wanted. He caught some lovely moments which myself and my husband hadn't seen. When we received our photos, they were also beautifully packaged. There was so much detail in everything Pete delivered. thanks again Pete! you were smashing! More...

From the moment we first contacted Pete, we didn’t look back! I first spoke to him on the phone and then we met a few months later for an engagement shoot - something that I would highly recommend for anyone who would like a little practice in front of the camera (or would like their other half to feel a little more at ease! ) and of course it was great to meet Pete face to face and see him work his magic with his camera! On the wedding day, it was a pleasure to have Pete with us, documenting our day in his own special way. We have had so many comments from our guests about what a nice guy he was and how unobtrusive he was when taking photographs of them throughout the day which was lovely to hear. We are thrilled with our wedding photographs and we would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a wedding photographer in the area! Thanks again Pete, you’re a star ⭐️ More...

I had a very clear image from the off of the kind of wedding photos I wanted. Chris hates having his photo taken and every photo you’ll see of him over on Instagram literally makes him look like he hates life. I really didn’t want 1000 posed shots of him looking miserable and knew I wanted some really natural shots which showed our family and friends feeling comfortable and having fun. I know not everyone likes having their photo taken (I’m one of those people when I haven’t got control of the camera!) so I really wanted to limit down the number of ‘posed’ photos we had.We chose Peter Hugo Photograpy for our wedding photos and I could not have been happier. I went to university with Petes girlfriend Ellie so I’ve seen his work via her facebook page for the last six years. When we got engaged there was only one person I wanted to take our photos as his photo style encompassed everything I wanted our photos to be – some posed photos but mainly just unposed photos of people enjoying themselves.Pete was an absolute pleasure to work with from our first email to last. I am genuinely upset that the whole process is over because he has been such a little gem. Pete drove down from his home town of County Durham on the morning of the wedding and came to my mums house where myself and the bridesmaids were getting ready. He snapped away, never making us feel uncomfortable or on edge.Some of the photos he got of us all there before the wedding are some of my favourites. He then met us at the church where he captured some truly special moments, then we went off to the woods to take some photos of just me and Chris. We have very few photos together so I’m so pleased that they are everything I had hoped! I love how he has edited them and the greenery looks so good in contrast with Chris’ tweed suit and ginger beard.All of our friends and family commented on how much of a nice lad Pete is, and I think that is so important – you don’t want someone who is going to make your friends and family feel on edge or like they are being watched; Pete managed to capture the very essence of our wedding and caught our family and friends just as we see them – relaxed and happy. Within one day of the wedding we had our first sneak peak photograph and it was perfect. I wore converse on our wedding and Pete captured those, our king (Malc the Dog) and Chris’ suit all in one. I think it is one of my favourite photos of the day (so much so that I used it for the Thank You Cards..!) and just makes me smile whenever I see it.We had a couple of other sneak peeks online and Pete kept me up to date throughout the whole process. Within 3 weeks of the wedding we had a beautiful presentation box sent through to us with a few prints inside it and a memory stick containing all our photos. I instantly welled up when I saw the photos. He had captured everything I could have hoped for. I don’t know how to put into words just how grateful I am to him for everything he did and all his hard work.I would wholeheartedly recommend him for any kind of occasion. Pete travels all over for weddings and events and I can promise you’d be nothing short of stunned by his work. More...

From my first meeting with Peter I knew I wanted him as our photographer, not only because his photos were amazing, but I just knew he would fit right in! Our couples shoot was amazing, and the photos turned out perfectly, despite me knowing that we are not the easiest couple (Mike) to work with. On the day itself he fit in perfectly with all our guests, took amazing photos and made the day itself even better for us, he felt more like a guest and a friend than he did someone we paid to take photos of us. He completely understood what we wanted from our photographs, and from the few sneak peaks we have had I just know every single photo is going to be outstanding. Throughout the day we had so many people tell us just what a nice guy Peter is, and how he went over and above for us, including wading barefoot in a stream! Both myself and Mike (and my bridesmaids, and guests) feel like we have made a friend and we are gutted he’s not going to be at every gathering with us! Peter is an absolutely fantastic photographer and was a brilliant addition to our day! I cannot possibly thank him enough! More...

This chap did the photography at my brothers wedding and was second to none. Superb pictures, was never guilty of the usual tropes of herding people into staged groups and bossing people around (as per the photographer at my wedding! ) and seamlessly blended into the throng all day taking some wonderful natural shots and capturing the day perfectly. Can’t recommend him highly enough. More...

My husband and I got married October this year and were lucky to have such a fantastic photographer. Pete was absolutely fantastic. Right from day one from working with Pete he was always so quick to responding to emails in regards to any queries we had. We were impressed right from the beginning. On the wedding day Pete impressed us even more with how well he blended in with everybody and also got on with everybody so well. He captured so many beautiful natural shots and also was so great with everyone when we were taking the group shots. Right from start to finish Pete was a fantastic photographer. After the wedding day so many friends and family came to us and told us how friendly they thought Pete was. When Pete sent us the finished photographs we were blown away. The photographs were not only stunning but Pete managed to capture so many moments that I completely forgot about or didn't take in properly on the day (as there's only so much a bride can take in on her wedding day :P ). A lot of photographers can take good pictures but not many can do what Pete did and make a story out of the photographs. Pete thank you for this and thank you for making the most stunning photographs of our special day that will be in our memories forever. More...

If I could give Pete 10 stars out of 5 on Facebook, I would. Pete recently photographed our wedding and has previously photographed a couple of events which I have organised and cannot fault this professionalism, cool photography style and having the ability to capture exactly what you want and more! As someone who feels massively anxious with having their photo taken, Pete listened to my worries and put me at ease, he also blended in perfectly with our guests on our special day and everyone commented how impressed they were with him. We are totally over the moon with our photographs, Pete goes the extra mile to present them in a gorgeous wooden box, something which we will treasure forever. I would 100% recommend Pete's services to anyone and he is my now go to photographer for any professional or personal occasions I may hold. More...

I don't even know where to start. Pete - you are simply AMAZING. From our initial meeting to the day of our wedding, you were so professional and put all of our worries at ease. You are such an amazing person and your photos speak volumes. You have such a calm aura about you that makes people feel comfortable and captures such natural candid photos. From the couple of teasers you have sent us, we know you have brilliantly captured our wedding day. All of our guests thought you did a great job and are so excited to see the pictures. I can't thank you enough for being at our wedding. Your work is incredible and anyone would be lucky to have you at their event. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Love from, The Blairs xxx More...

Over the past few years I've had the absolute pleasure of doing 2 photo-shoots with Pete. There aren't many people that I would trust to share such an intimate moment such as proposing with, but I jumped at the chance to have Pete capture our special moment. Pete secretly communicated with me over the course of a month to organise my big surprise, and provided excellent suggestions for how and where I should propose (He was also a phenomenal middle man for hiding the ring before the big moment). The turnover for the photos after the shoot was immensely fast, the photos were breathtaking, and beautifully packaged. I've never come across a photographer so natural and as likeable as Pete, and couldn't recommend another professional as highly as him. There aren't many things that myself and my fiancée have decided on about our wedding, but booking Pete as our photographer is a definite. More...

In a day and age where everyone has the ability to take their own photographs and edit them, sometimes it's tempting to take photos of an event yourself. However, after seeing the photos of my graduation, not only do I love them, but the difference in quality between what I or family would take, and a professional photographer is blatently clear. What sticks Pete out in comparison to other photographers? The effort and passion that goes into his work. Pete was up first thing to come up with me and my family to go to Newcastle. He was friendly and charismatic with my family, and was always patient and understanding when I needed to him to wait elsewhere during my graduation ceremony. He is always happy to take whatever photograph you need, and will show you the photos he has taken during the day. You get more than your money's worth with Pete. The photos Pete takes are fantastic, from lovely angles for posed shots, from capturing the moment when taking natural photos of us all. Despite hundreds of photos taken, Pete manages to choose the very best ones, and you can tell they have been edited with much thought and time spent on them. In addition to the actual photos, the presentation in how they are delivered are wonderful. It comes in a lovely wooden box with his logo, filled with some prints of his favourite shots, and a realy cool wooden USB stick. This is the icing on the cake of all round great experience and will most definitely be requring Pete's photographic talent and skills for future special or professional events. Look no further than Pete, you won't find much better. More...

Where do I even start? I have seen Pete's photography grow and develop over the last few years since we had a mutual friend on Facebook. As soon as I got engaged I knew there was only one person I wanted to do our photos, and luckily he was available to do it! Pete is a great guy, who put us all at ease and captured everything we wanted from the day! Everything was edited and sent within 3 weeks and they really are exactly what I wanted. I've loved seeing sneak peaks on his page throughout the process and I am so sad it is all over! Everything has been completely seamless and he is a joy to work with. Pete was there for the start of the day and captured some memories I will cherish, getting ready with my friends and parents. The photos from the church are simply beautiful and in the evening he caught everyone busting some moves with their dancing shoes on. Thank you Pete for capturing our day perfectly, I cannot thank you enough. More...

Pete was such a fantastic photographer for our wedding. In the planning and lead up to it he was very approachable, communicative and happy to answer all of our questions. When it came to the wedding day he was so friendly and laid-back, he really did put everyone at ease. We had a lively ceilidh in the evening and Pete got really involved to get some brilliant pictures. He went above and beyond and stayed later than he needed to, which we really appreciated. The photos he got were warm, candid and relaxed and were a perfect reflection of our day. The photobox we recieved after iis a beautiful memento that we will treasure. We agree completely with a previous review- by the end of the day he really felt like a friend. We would wholeheartedly recommend Pete for any occasion and I look forward to seeing him again in June, as my sister has already decided to book him for her wedding! Rhiannon and Ed More...

We were recommended Pete by a friend to take our wedding photos. We are so glad we took her advice as the service he provided was brilliant! Pete made us feel really comfortable like someone we had known for years, he felt more like a friend to us. Communication before and after the wedding, was great. We couldn't wait to receive our pictures after all of the sneak peaks he posted before hand on his page. We have had many friends and family comment on how brilliant our pictures are and how good Pete was on the day! Our photo gift box is a brilliant wooden keepsake from our wedding which Pete hand delivered. Inside the attention to detail was fab! We highly recommend Peter, his service is brilliant. We will definitely use Pete's service again! Keeley & Davy Jones More...

Pete is not only an absolutely wonderful photographer, he is also a wonderful person. Me and my partner had a couple's shoot done with Pete and the whole experience was amazing from start to finish. Pete is an absolute perfectionist, this can be seen through every aspect of his work, from his interactions with his customers, through to his planning of your day, his photographs, editing and finally the packaged CD and personalised notes. I would highly recommend Pete for couple/engagement shoots and from seeing all his other work and hearing only positives from others I would also highly recommend him for weddings and family shoots, he's so versatile he could do anything! Once again thank you so much Pete, we will treasure those photo's forever! More...

Through the whirlwind experience of getting engaged, planning and arranging a wedding and then getting married, the most important thing for us now having experienced it, are the memories of the day. Three months later, we love reminiscing about the build up to the day and the day itself, and what better way to do this than looking through our wedding photos. It was important for us to consider what we wanted in a photographer (my advise would be start with what you don't want). We first came across Peter Hugo Photography through friends of friends on Facebook. We looked through his previous work, and it ticked all of the boxes. The images were natural, relaxed and reflected Peters passion for his profession. Being a little camera shy, we booked an engagement shoot with Peter, as a way of getting to know him and getting used to having this big black lens watching your every move. This was such a nice experience, we went for a walk with our dog, and forgot Peter was there at times. He went above and beyond for us to get some amazing photos, he ruined his shoes in the mud and his trousers were covered in paw prints by the end. Within a day or two we had a huge collection of amazing photos that Peter clearly took the time to edit to such a high standard. Then on the day, Peter was great at getting everyone organised and making sure we had pictures that included all of our guests. He was able to juggle champagne filled guests and the Great British weather to produce yet more amazing photos. All of our guests commented on his personality and how talented he is. He became a bit of a hit with our relatives. Again, it took a couple of days for us to get the photos, which was great having heard from friends who had waited months. We now have so many photos, capturing amazing memories that we haven't been able to choose one favourite. Peter has a great talent, not only for photography, but also for integrating with guests and really getting a feel for you and your family, to produce the best photos. I can't recommend him highly enough! More...

We were able to arrange a price that suited us all :) Peter took pictures of the bridal party getting ready and stayed up to the first dance (which ended up being later than expected) and he happily showed me pictures throughout the day when I asked :) He kept in contact to ensure we knew when we would be receiving the final pictures - which were all fantastic!! Peter has a loverly personality and really captured the perfect moments from the wedding! Thank you so much!! More...
