My body confidence shoot with Mervyn was not only a great experience on the day itself or the beautiful images I recieved after but the greatest impact was the boost and ongoing impact to my confidence. I have since been to his Body Confidence Meet up in which I have found a wonderful community of women to share, support and inspire with. Could not recommend him more! More...

I had a shoot with Mervyn in the summer of 2018 and I look back on it as such a fun and transformative experience. He is a star at making you feel at ease, and his posing direction helped me a lot (I had no idea what to do! ). The photos are a gorgeous souvenir of the day I stepped out of my comfort zone and loved every minute.I also attended Mervyn’s first social event in 2019 and had a wonderful time. He’d structured the evening in a way that allowed for purposeful discussions plus relaxed mingling. It was great to be around like-minded women in a space that felt safe and trusting, and I’m still in touch with some of the women I met that night. More...

I went to the first body confidence social. It was so amazing and also refreshing to meet so many lovely women who have all the same fears, and body worries that I do. As well as meeting and chatting to the ladies we also where introduced to some of the models who previously had shoots with Mervyn from youatyours. They all speak so highly of him and I am definitely going to book in a shoot with him soon. I’m really looking forward to the next body confidence social on Sunday 17th December! As well as the social I have also had photography sessions with Mervyn. He has been an incredible teacher and I’ve really enjoyed our classes together. More...

We had a lovely engagement shoot with Mervyn at St Pancras. He made us feel really comfortable by starting with a coffee and a chat. We didn’t feel too conscious of having a photographer following us around the station and he captured us in a genuine fashion. He is a really nice guy; professional with a personal touch. We love our pictures and we would definitely recommend him ❤️! More...

Mervyn did our engagement shoot and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. After awhile we forgot Mervyn was even there that is credit to how comfortable he made us feel. The quality of photos were excellent.We also did a photo film which was so unique. We are so glad we chose to do this as has been a lovely way to share our engagement pics with friends and family.We would certainly recommend Mervyn. More...

Fantastic experience!We worked with Mervyn for our engagement shoot and could not be happier with our choice of photographer. We both felt quite nervous beforehand but Mervyn had a naturally kind, open and funny manner that instantly made us both feel at ease.We chose Mervyn as we felt he showed a genuine interest and care in capturing this special time for us. He responded to all of our queries efficiently, arrived on the shoot day full of great energy and as a result we have beautiful photos that we are delighted with and have used for our save the date cards.We would highly recommend Mervyn and thank him again for a great experience!

I had a photo shoot and some other work done by Mervyn. I was very nervous before the shoot but once we started he helped me so much and made sure I don't feel uncomfortable, it became the best experience! The photos came out absolutely stunning, everyone I know has complimented them and I have to say that he can continuously surprise me with his creativity and professionalism. I'm 100% satisfied and would definitely book more in the future and recommend him. More...

We had an engagement photoshoot with Mervyn and the pictures that we’ve taken away from the day are fantastic! Mervyn made us feel at ease from the very start of the process, finding out what we wanted from the shoot and framing what we could expect from the day. Mervyn dedicated the best part of a day capturing some really special moments on camera, telling the story of our engagement and us as a couple. We chose to have a photo film created and Mervyn went above and beyond to make sure it completely exceeded our expectations. Mervyn is so passionate about his craft and this made the whole experience a pleasure throughout. More...

We absolutely loved our photo shoot with Mervyn!
He has such a great eye for detail and really wants to make your shoot the best it can be. We felt totally calm and at home in front of the lens and that was because Mervyn was so friendly and relatable, yet, very professional.

We would very much recommend Mervyn for all your photography needs and we can’t wait for him to shoot us again on our big day, after he did amazing work on our engagement shoot.

We loved our photos by Mervyn. We have been complimented continuously on his photographs. From the start he was very personable. No awkwardness- very easy to get on with. This really helped with building a rappor so that we could take natural pictures. He also offered that we meet up before hand and said that would assist in feeling comfortable in front of the camera. I agree it did. He was also very gracious in that we were slightly late- thanks Mervyn.

He had a full service of equipment to compliment his camera and went over and above for us.
Thanks for making our Engagement shoot so perfect Mervyn.

We couldn’t have been more happy with the results from our Engagement shoot. The photos are brilliant and perfectly capture our memories of that day. I originally told Mervyn that I wanted to secretly capture our engagement and he immediately brought fresh and creative ideas to the table. I unknowingly chose a tricky location to shoot in (for access reasons) but Mervyn worked his magic with security and the whole thing couldn’t have gone any better. Mervyn is not just a great photographer but a great person to be around so that made the whole shoot even more enjoyable. If you’re stressing over choosing a photographer (like I was) then I’d suggest just reaching out and speaking with Mervyn directly on the phone, I’m sure you’ll get as good of a vibe as I did and will be as happy with the results as we are.

We recently had Mervyn do our engagement shoot and what a great experience it was.Posing for photos doesn’t come naturally to us, especially to my partner who hates having his photo taken so he was very apprehensive about doing a photo shoot. But Mervyn was great at making us both feel relaxed and we ended up thoroughly enjoying the experience.We discussed the type of shoot we wanted and possible locations with Mervyn beforehand , and all communication with him was fast, informative and just super friendly.On the morning of the shoot, we met for a coffee first and just chatted a bit to relax us into the situation and then the shoot itself was as natural as possible. Sure, it feels a bit alien having a camera following you around at first – but you soon get into the swing of things and don’t notice him there as he blends into the situation giving you the most beautiful/natural shots you could want.We did pose for a few shots, but by that point you are happily into the swing of things and it’s actually nice to feel a little bit like a celeb having your picture taken.Our shoot with Mervyn was an all-round lovely experience from start to finish. He is a very lovely, personable guy who got some great shots and we are super happy with the end result. We would definitely recommend Mervyn. More...

I couldn't recommend Mervyn more highly - he was thorough and just "GOT US" and our style. He has produced the most stunning engagement photographs from a very natural and easy morning of shooting.
He is so personable and an all round good egg.
We love these pictures and his style so much we have now asked him to shoot our wedding.
He worked wonders with our dog and us as reluctant subjects - top work
