Simon was so helpful recently when he came to photograph my artwork. It's not until you get them professionally photographed that you realise how much better they look. Simon was very accommodating and is a stickler for getting it right. I would not hesitate to recommend him More...

We used Simon to photograph one of our English language schools in York. He was very professional and we are very happy with the quality of the photos that we are now able to use for our website and in marketing materials. We will definitely be using him again for future projects. More...

I am Headteacher of a Primary School and asked Simon to come in and photograph our children in order to update our website, provide images around school and for marketing purposes. This is the second time Simon has done this for us and the results have been amazing. His photos really reflect how happy, busy and fabulous our children are - they are absolutely brilliant. I would highly recommend him to all schools - he was professional, friendly and the children thought he was great. Thank you Simon - a fabulous job. More...

I met up with Simon recently after a discussion over photographing my artwork. He certainly knows what he is doing and did a cracking job of making them look so much better than my poor efforts. A very professional gentleman. Arrived on time and wasted no time in getting the images processed and back to me. A great photographer! More...

Right from the moment we met Simon we knew we wanted him to be our wedding photographer. Aside from the fact that his portfolio was exceptional, he really listened to what we wanted and showed this understanding throughout all our dealings with him. Communication was seamless, Simon always responded promptly to any query or concern or even just to offer advice. On our special day, nothing was too much for him...he even rolled around on the ground to make sure he captured the most perfect shot of us...he traipsed through mud and boggy grass just to ensure the "light was just right" on the photo. He was patient with our friends and families who weren't the easiest bunch to get photo's of!! Our album is stunning and each picture brings back the magical memories of our special day. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better photographer and are both grateful!! Thank you Simon!!! More...

Absolutely over the moon with our wedding photosSimon was a fantastic photographer for our Yorkshire wedding in October 2018. Simon managed to capture so many magical photos throughout the day which we will cherish forever. Simon is an extremely talented photographer and really captured what we wanted from our wedding photos, lots of natural photos of us and our guests having the best time. Simon also produced some simply stunning photos using clever lighting and with the support of his photography assistant Katie. We would highly recommend Simon as a photographer for a wedding or any special event, he will produce photos that you will always treasure. His photos are elegant, striking and so beautiful; they really stand apart from other wedding photo. Thank you so much to Simon for capturing our day so perfectly, we love every single photo!Hayley and Arian More...

From my wife and I we want to thank Simon and Katy for their fantastic work on our wedding day, the photos are fantastic, you both surpassed our expectations and we would highly recommend choosing Simon Hogben photography. We really appreciated the little touches like the projected photos on to the wall which were shown only a short time time after the wedding breakfast. You were both accommodating around us both which again helped make our day that more enjoyable, great service even down to our requests with the online photos, great photographers and couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks again More...

Simon (and his assistant Katy) were absolutely fantastic for our wedding photography. They were patient, especially with the younger children, and worked without getting in the way of everything that was going on. They were great to have a chat with and created a great atmosphere for the day. They took a lot of beautiful photos, and even had some ready to preview by the evening reception. Absolutely fantastic photographer, would definitely recommend. More...

We were let down by our photographer on the week before out wedding. Simon was a lifesaver and was available at very short notice . He is a fantastic photographer , wprks the room like a ghost so you don't know he's there which was perfect. Hes non intrusive and advises brilliantly on what photos we could have. We couldn't be happier with results. I would recommend him to anybody Thanks again Simon. You are a star !! More...

Simon was the photographer for our wedding, we are so happy we picked him! We didn’t know anything about wedding photography and felt a bit nervous trying to find someone to match our taste and budget - Simon was brilliant from the start, so responsive to emails and made time to meet us in person before the wedding to make sure we knew everything ahead of the day. On the day itself he was great with all of our guests, getting hundreds (literally) of amazing photos both arranged and candid shots. He also printed out and displayed some photos at the reception which was a big hit with our guests! We got the photos back soon after the wedding and we were so thrilled with the result! The photos are absolutely beautiful - we’ve been complimented many times by our guests and were just so pleased that our happy memories have been so well captured. THANK YOU SIMON! More...

You couldn't wish for a better photographer. Simons attention to detail is fantastic, he has a great rapor with the guests and has a very calming presence, perfect when you're having pre-wedding jitters! His story-telling style gives a true, accurate representation of your day, capturing every special moment and his final galleries are phenomenal. More...

I’ve known Simon for a good while and have worked with him on several occasions, including on Wedding coverage. Simon and I initially met professionally exchanging thoughts on colour, style and all things creative. His experience as a photographer shows through in all of his work and specifically with Weddings, Simon has the experience to capture those ever so important emotional connections between people and candid moments, often missed at a Wedding. Supporting this, his detail work is stunning employing specific equipment to get superb detail shots of rings, shoes and dresses..so important in delivering the full package. Simon also provides his photos in both Colour and Black and White without additional cost which is great for those looking to have a wider variety, I’m pretty sure some charge extra for this. Choosing a Wedding photographer is a hard decision to make with so many to consider; Simon delivers consistent results, is very passionate about what he does and makes people feel relaxed as he works. As a full time professional videographer, I recommend him 100%. More...

We picked Simon to photograph our wedding and we couldn't be happier. Not only did our guests tell us how polite he was during the day, but he also took amazing photos and edited them so fast that we had the final photos on the Thursday when our wedding was on the Monday.

As someone who never really enjoys her photograph being taken this seemed to me to be rather daunting - I should not have worried!
Simon's studio within Acklam Hall is a beautiful setting. I was lucky enough to benefit from a makeup and hair package which makes you feel very special. Simon immediately puts you at ease, the whole experience was fun and I was surprised at how easily I relaxed and posed!
The photographs are wonderful, I felt a million dollars and I am delighted with them.
This was such a great afternoon and I would thoroughly recommend Simon to anyone who was considering some special portraits, especially if, like me, you are a little camera shy! Simon brings out the best in you and I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Simon, it was great to have you as our wedding photographer at the Crathorne Hall, in Yarm. Everyone appreciated your calm and very charming approach to the individual and group photos. You have a very likeable personality, which made the day even more enjoyable. We are very happy with the preview wedding photos, they all look amazing, we are now looking forward to seeing the rest! Great photos, good fun and many thanks! More...

I don't usually like my photograph taken so was a bit anxious about going to the photoshoot at Acklam Hall but I needn't have worried. After having my hair and makeup done it was then up to Simon to work miracles, which he did! Simon makes you feel relaxed and at ease. The portrait photographs he took of me and my partner are stunning! Simon is a brilliant photographer and I can't recommend him enough. More...

I loved this photoshoot, Simon made me feel pretty when he was taking photos and encouraging me to relax and making me laugh to get a natural look. The makeup artist was great and the hairdresser made my hair look awesome for a girl hate being infront of a camera I would 100% go back and do it all again x More...

Have had the pleasure of working with Simon several times, my daughters model for him and we have also had our pictures taken as a family. ...and he produces some fantastic images!! Very artistic and unusual - from classical formal portraits, pre rephealite style, high fashion, make-up to Halloween. Fantastic studio and surroundings at Acklam Hall, stunning and such an informal and friendly manner makes it a very pleasurable experience even for those who are nervous. Love his work and looking forward to the next shoot! Thanks Simon � More...

I had a fabulous few hours with Simon at his studio in Acklam Hall.
From the moment of arrival Simon really does make you feel very welcome and relaxed and even advises before hand on what not to wear to get the best photographs.
The ease with which he seamlessly puts you where he wants you to obtain the best possible shots both formal and very relaxed poses. Not all of his shots are posed for and we got some great unposed pictures as well.
I can't recommend Simon too highly as a master of his profession.
