I love taking pictures, and I love being able to capture the happiest moments of people’s lives. I am a qualified Associate with the MPA (Master Photographers Association) and the BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography). However, I believe my greatest asset is in connecting with people, because all my technical ability wouldn’t be much good if I weren’t able to make people feel at ease when being photographed.

If you're looking at this review, please consider your search for a wedding or other special occasion photographer over; John is perfect, his style is wonderful and my only advice is to book him early to make sure you can work with him. We knew his photography was beautiful from looking at his portfolio but we also loved how easy he was to work with and how (seemingly) effortlessly he mixed with our guests, put them at ease and captured special little moments as they happened, in addition to the obligatory staged shots of course. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to capture a special occasion - you'll be over the moon with the results!

Absolutely in love with our wedding photos! We highly recommend Pure Image Photography for weddings and other events. John’s attention to detail and eye for hidden beauty amazed us. It rained all day on our wedding day but John still managed to capture some outstanding images which truly captured the beauty of our day. John, we cannot thank you enough and are so excited to show all of our friends and family our stunning photographs!

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding as special as it was. Having the photos taken was relaxed at all times as John put us and our guests at ease. We are thrilled with the photos that we have received and the slideshow is absolutely stunning- everybody has raved over them and have said how beautiful the informal photos are as they capture the natural happiness felt by everybody on the day. Can't recommend Pure Image Photography enough- Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

John had taken several of our friends' wedding photos and, having seen the brilliant results, we booked him for our wedding too. John made sure he came round to see us first to discuss what we wanted from our photographs and any requests that we had in particular to ensure that he knew what was important to us. On the day itself John was friendly, professional, unintrusive and most importantly for me and my husband made us feel relaxed when having our pics done. We simply couldnt have been more pleased with the photographs. Not only did we have our own CD of every single image,plus a slideshow dvd, but we also had a beautiful album made by John, of which we had prior approval on all of the photographs. The photographs themselves were a perfect mix of naturally captured moments, the small but important touches and of course the main family/friends photos. Just recently our son turned 1 and to mark his first birthday we contacted John again to take some photographs. We were over the moon with the results as they capture our little boy and his personality perfectly. I didnt think that my son would sit still long enough to have his photo taken but thanks to John engaging my son we had tons of photos to chose from and it is incredibly hard to choose which ones to put on our wall. As you can probably tell, I cannot recommend John highly enough, and will continue to use his services time and time again in the future.

We were looking for a portrait photographer to take some pictures of our two boys and john was recommended to us from a friend. We were amazed how he managed to capture the personalities of the boys perfectly. He photographed the boys at our house by setting up a background and also took some great shots outside in the park opposite. He has just delivered the pictures to us and we are so happy that we wanted to recommend him to others. The pictures look amazing on the wall, and the DVD still makes me cry at the 100th time of watching it ! Thanks again John, and we will definatly be booking you up again in the future, from Jane and Simon

We married at Mangapp Manor on 11th August and John Thompson was our amazing photographer. Seriously the nicest guy you will ever meet. He made our day so relaxed and we had so much fun with him. He really is incredible and works so hard. He arrived at my parents house for around 9am and did not leave until the very end capturing every single moment for us. If you are struggling to find a photographer then look no further than John Thompson. We cannot thank you enough John and we cannot wait to see our photographs xx

I cannot fault John! I hate having my photo taken and was worried I'd be a nightmare for him to work with. However he said it would be a good challenge for him so thankfully didn't see me as a diva bride!! I found him passionate about photography and really down to earth which made me want to book him after meeting so many photographers I didn't like. Our wedding photos are amazing and I'm actually happy with how I look! The photo booth is also a great guest pleaser and great value for money. I would 100% recommend Pure Image to everyone getting married you won't be disappointed. Thanks for creating amazing memories for us to keep John. Sarah & Kev Winn x

John was absolutely fantastic! He was so lovely on the day, making everyone feel at ease. Even though it rained for most of the day, he managed to get lots of beautiful shots. We couldn't be happier with our photos, they really captured all the special moments from our big day. Thank you John! X

If it was possible to give John more than 5stars on here we would. He was absolutely fantastic from day 1 of our first meeting to providing our photos. Leading up to the day he was very responsive to our enquiries and on the day he was faultless! John made everyone feel very comfortable when taking photos and our guests have all commented since on how professional and brilliant he was. The photos John captured of our special day were even more spectacular than we could have ever asked for. There are many photos when we didn't realise he was there taking pictures, which shows how fantastic he was at blending in and capturing some wonderful moments. We could not recommend John highly enough, his skilful photography is something that we are truly grateful for as we have so many beautiful pictures that we will look upon for years to come. Thank you so much. Claire & Michael.

On what is - for most people - the biggest day of their lives, you want everything to go smoothly. You stress and you plan and you argue and you worry but at the end of the day you have to trust that you have made the right choices. Choosing John to capture our big day was easily one of the best decisions we made. We were already impressed with his stunning portfolio and selection of "highlights" and had high expectations - having received our photos recently John has somehow exceeded those expectations and we can't wait to share them with all of our friends and family. John is an artist - able to anticipate and plan the most breath taking shots that can only come from a potent mix of creative genius and a wealth of experience. His demeanor is professional, friendly and always stress free and we always felt at ease and able to trust that he would capture the best of us. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any future couples (in fact we sat down and tried to list all the people we knew were getting hitched to try and persuade them too!) Thank you for being part of our special day and for capturing the best moments in such an amazing way.

My new wife and I had John to do the photography at our wedding on the 28th December.He was an absolute pleasure to have photograph our special day and we could not have been more happy with the results. He got right in the thick of it whilst not getting in the way or being too intrusive which led to some fantastic shots! I would definitely recommend anyone to have John be part of there special day,you will not be disappointed!

John photographed our wedding in September this year. We absolutely couldn't fault him. He was professional but laid back throughout- his kind, calm manner made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. He really put my husband and I at ease when taking our photos, we found we really enjoyed it. John made it fun and allowed us to be natural so we didn't feel as though we had to pose which neither of us are very good at! He is a very creative photographer and takes lots of natural shots which really captured the day. The photos came out brilliantly, these were so many that we weren't expecting as he was very discreet and much of the time you almost forgot he was there. Lots of our guests commented on how professional he was. He wasn't at all pushy when organising group shots.
He arrived at 10am to capture shots of us getting ready and didn't leave until well into the evening so captured every part of the day. A few days before he had contacted me and we spoke at length about what we wanted on the day- he is clearly extremely committed and passionate about his job which is reflected in his photos.
We would thoroughly recommend him- he was an absolute pleasure to have at the wedding and his photos are wonderful. They are honestly better then we could have imagined.
Thanks again John!

John was our photographer for our wedding on the 30th April 2017. After seeing his work for two of our friends weddings, we knew we were making a good decision. On the day John was an absolute dream to work with and we loved his relaxed style. When we received the slideshow and photos we were speechless and very emotional! They were absolutely incredible and we have had so many comments from family and friends on how lovely they were. Everyone could see how great John was as a photographer and we can't recommend him enough! Thank you! Amy & Kieran

Chris & i met with John a year before our wedding & we just clicked! We loved the fact John had photographed both the church & venue before & could give advice on what did & didn't work. The organisation was stress free in the lead up, nothing was ever too much hassle if we had a quick question to discuss. On the day John met with the boys first of all, they were all very complimentary & felt at ease the whole time. John sent us our photos a few weeks ago & my godness - they are fabulous!! The 'highlights' showreel is beautiful & we received a well presented wooden box in the post too. Now to pick our favourites for the album, it's proving difficult! Thank you again so much John, truely very talented!!!
Chris' review (a man of many words) - nicest bloke you could meet. best pictures ever. presentable, humble.

John was our photographer for our wedding on the 03.06 and he was brilliant! We were so happy with our photos when we saw them - some of the natural shots of us and family and friends are just amazing and there’s such a variety; it’s going to be hard choosing which ones to frame! John is such a lovely guy, as well as being a great photographer and made myself and my husband feel very comfortable and relaxed throughout the day. For the amount of time he’s with you on the day, as well as the fantastic quality of the photos produced, I really can’t recommend John enough – if I could award more than 5 stars I absolutely would!!!

John was amazing at our wedding. He made us and the guests feel so relaxed and because of this we have got some fantastic action shots! Photo booth is a must, got all our photos on a online gallery the next day which was so lovely to wake up to! Really creative and inventive and found hidden places at our venue which created unique pictures. Could not recommend him highly enough! Thank you so much!

John was our photographer on 09.09.17. He was recommended through a friend and did not disappoint. John has a very easy going relaxed attitude which is exactly what you need on your wedding day. He captured beautiful photographs even of family members who do everything to avoid the camera. Our friends have all commented on our pictures and how helpful and polite he was when they actually realised he was snapping away. We would definitely recommend him to others. Thank you John

Brilliant!! John photographed our Christmas wedding on the 22/12/17. John is laid back, loves his job (you can tell) and never did we feel awkward in his company considering we are both camera shy! He arrived early, stayed till late (other photographers charge extra to stay) and blended into the wedding. Couldn't recommend John highly enough - thank you for making our wedding run so smoothly and capturing all the memories of us, family and friends we shared the day with.

John photographed our wedding over May bank holiday weekend and we couldn’t recommend him enough. From when we first met him, to the last pictures he took on the evening, he completely put us at ease and made the whole experience fun. He knew exactly where to get the best shots even though he hadn’t shot at the venue before and we are absolutely thrilled with the final results which we will cherish forever, so thank you so much!

Words cannot describe the talent that John has with a camera. John visited our house to show us samples of our work and within 5 minutes we were sold- although we didn't tell him that. He is beyond passionate about his work and capturing the moment of your special day. He is patient, caring, funny, and spots and seizes every moment. We have just received our photos and have over 700 all of which I absolute adore. These are some of the best photos I've seen in my life and we will cherish them forever. John captured the love and laughter from our day perfectly and we cannot thank him enough.
