We’ve had our children photographed by Stephen.. He’s great! He put all of of them (including 1 autistic lad) very much at ease! It was a real ego boost for the 2 girls as well!! The pics look AMAZING! Even the eldest (who hates his pic taken!) was very much at ease and didn’t mind have his pictures done! Would highly recommend Stephen! More...

What an absolutely lovely man Stephen is!! We are so blessed to have had him capture every single gorgeous memory of our wedding celebration. From our first meeting Geoff and I knew we had chosen the perfect man for the job, but Stephen doesn't make it feel like it's a job, he relaxes you, puts you at ease and just 100% knows what he's doing. His sense of humour is brilliant and cheeky, just like ours and we got on from the first time we met. On our magical day Stephen was so concerned to get everything perfect for us. He listened when we asked for particular shots and we are sure hes added some more to capture special moments. I've even contacted him since to ask if he could work his magic on one photo I forgot to ask him to do..his reply.. I'll see what I can do! ..and that's what we loved about Stephen, nothing is too much bother.. You can tell he loves his passion of photography...he was incredible when gathering our large family together.. especially the children..again sharing his fab humour!! We can't WAIT to see the full album...and relive the happiest day of our life which Stephen has captured perfectly. More...

Had my first boudoir shoot with Stephen and I could not fault it. He made me feel very comfortable and was very reassuring, explaining how the shoot would go and what I could expect. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it's definitely something I would do again, he is such a professional and the finished photos are flawless! A definite confidence booster! Thank you so much! More...

Stephen is a brilliant professional photographer. Stephen helped me organise a special birthday party and gave me great advice on what props would be good for the mobile studio. Stephen was a great hit with all the guests and we have brilliant memories from the day. Highly recommended for any of your special occasions. More...

Platinum Fireworks have worked with Stephen on many occasions over the last few years and can honestly say he produces the most amazing photos we have seen, especially the fireworks. Normally we are lucky to see one or two good shots but Stephen somehow manages to get a good handful of spectacular photos. As well as producing amazing results Stephen is amazing to deal with and we can’t recommend him enough. More...

I would definitely recommend Stephen Johnson Photography. He done a photo shoot of all the members of staff for our salons website and social media pages. The photos were far better than we ever expected and we had great fun with it too. Stephen made us feel very relaxed and comfortable and knew how to capture the best of our individual features! I would definitely recommend him. Thank you Stephen for our wonderful photos! We are very happy :-) More...

We got married on 24th August 2018 and Stephen was our photographer. We had seen his previous work at weddings we attended and really liked the shots he took. He spent time with us to decide what we wanted and gave his input which was a great help to guide us through. Stephen and Chloe were fab on the day and the photos after the ceremony were done really quickly and nobody was left hanging around....which I think is essential at a wedding. Stephen also made our guests laugh and get involved throughout the day which our guests loved. There were shots taken that we didn't see?.Stephen took some photos with my bridesmaids so still plenty to look forward to, when we have the wedding blues. Highly recommend. Thank you very much for everything. David and Leanne More...

I would recommend Stephen for anyone who wants amazing pictures captured on their wedding day. I have so far only seen a sneak peek of our day but the photos are stunning. Stephen knows exactly what to do to engage the guests to get the shots required and also has so many fun, interesting ideas that just blow you away! We had a firework display and a flash mob first dance that has been captured perfectly. Stephen was easily contactable right from the beginning and happy to do anything we asked and with me being a very organised bride he put up with my demands! We can’t wait to see the rest of the photos in a couple of weeks. More...

We have used Steve several times now - for our wedding in 2012, for newborn shoots for each of our 4 children in 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and again today (2018! ) for a family shoot. We are always so pleased with the quality of the photos as well as Steve's ability to capture everyone's personalities in his work. Steve has a great way with our children who have enthusiastically joined in as a result of his relaxed style. A photoshoot with 4 children under 5 is no mean feat but again Steve has produced some excellent photos. He is always willing to try to capture every photo idea I bring with me (and I bring lots!) and I'm sure we have many more photoshoots ahead of us with him. More...

25 July 2018

Absolutely amazing, made us feel very at ease and spoke to us about weddings plans. Speaking to some one else about it has calmed us down a lot. Photos are awesome, we will cherish theses forever. If your getting married, having a baby or just want a photo shoot. He is a must. All high quality images. Thankyou Stephen. More...

I knew from the first moment I met Stephen Johnson at a wedding fair at Reigate that I wanted him to be my photographer for our wedding. He was so down to earth and honest with everything. He made us both feel at ease about the day. I knew that we could put our full trust in him to capture the most important memories of our day. Thank you Stephen. Definitely recommend this man! Not only was he our photographer but he also helped out with everything else too. The mobile photo booth was a main talking point from our wedding guests; they loved it and thought it was amazing they could have the photos printed straight after. Caitlin was also big help on the day, she helped keep me organised as the bride and sorted my dress before photos. She also managed to capture some great memory’s too. We were over the moon that Stephen and Caitlin managed to capture video footage of our surprise singing waiter for us too. A Massive Thank you. Xx More...

I've used Steve for both commercial and party photos for a couple of years now. I can't, at any point, fault his professionalism and his passion. Not only are the images he captures stunning, but each experience is unique and memorable for his clients. Despite having a number of difficult subjects, Steve has always managed to put everyone at ease to the point they enjoy the over all experience. Couldn't recommend Steve enough. Top class photographer and a top class guy. More...

I have had the pleasure of working with Stephen and would 100% recommend him for all kinds of photoshoots from baby, prom, wedding/occasion to boudoir he is amazingly versatile and always finds a way to help his clients relax! He is also the first photography company who I have seen that can provide immediate edits to pictures during the shoot at his studio to make you feel at ease of how the 'finished product/album' will look and to top it all off he has a mobile studio so he can capture all of your special moments!

Thanks to Stephen for basically carrying me through my wedding day. He not only is the best photographer I know, he also should be a wedding planner! It was Stephen that outlined everything myself, the best man and the ushers had to do throughout the day from start to finish. He gave us great tips on what to and not to do, as well as filled my time before the ceremony with fun photos to reduce my nerves. Thanks Steve More...

I was looking for someone to help point me in the right direction with regards to photographic equipment and was recommended to contact Stephen. He was so friendly and clearly very knowledgeable. He gave me great advice and the camera and lense I bought were perfect for me. His studio is fantastic and he creates amazing photographs. Highly recommended. More...

Stephen captured our perfect day, being a part of the day but often totally unseen! Perfection!

When we first met, we loved Stephen. He made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Before the big day he helped us plan it all out so that we could discuss important shots to us and most importantly, he got to know us!

On Wedding day itself Stephen came to my mums house in the morning, got all the girls in the photo spirit and also took pictures of tiny details that I would totally have missed. That's pretty much what he did all day, get those pictures of things and people that we would miss. He was amazing and supportive all day and the guests adored him!!

As of that wasn't enough, his after care was great too! He invited us to his studio and let us relive the day looking through the photos. Now just waiting to see the photo book which he is putting together for us!
We have already recommended to two couples of our friends marrying. But this guy is great, if you want total perfection and trust in your Photographer then Stephen is your man! Thank you x

Stephen was the photographer at our wedding on 22 July and he was just fantastic. We can't recommend him highly enough for his professionalism, dedication to ensuring we had a great day, and his loud voice and organisational skills! !

Stephen was much more than a photographer, he calmed my nerves, organised the groomsmen, sorted out the flowers, kept everybody in good spirits throughout the day and much much more!

The weather wasn't great but that didn't stop Stephen from coming up with great ideas for our shots which meant we still got lots of wonderful pictures and fantastic memories.

Thank you Stephen for everything, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you for weddings and will be coming back to you for our baby pictures in 9 months time! ��

Stephen is a wonderful photographer! We had a family photo shoot at his studio and he got some amazing shots of our little boy. Bearing in mind my 2yr old was all over the place, going through things and being a typical toddler, stephen remained very calm, plesant and patient! He even let my little one watch toy story to try keep him calm :) will definitly be returning in the future!
Thank you!

Fantastic! Obviously I felt a bit apprehensive when i turned up, but Stephen made myself and my friend a lovely cup of tea, we had a chat about the type of outfits I had brought and what I wanted from the day. . He made me feel completely comfortable and he guided me on how to stand and where to look, to make sure that the photos came out great. Which obviously they did! I'm so so happy! Even doing some of the implied nude shots were easy and fun to do because Stephen was so easy going and relaxed.. I would definitely recommend his photography skills to anyone! For any occasion! I know I'm definitely going back again soon! THANKYOU AGAIN SO SO MUCH!! More...

Q&A

Understanding your subject and listening to what they want

What is it exactly that they want and then discuss in detail how I think I can give it to them

The ability to make someone happy with something as simple as a photograph

I simply decided one day to make a hobby and turn it into a job. They say do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life!

I go the extra mile, sometimes two . . . I also believe that the service is as important as the product
