Carl immediately gave us a sense of confidence when we first spoke to him on Skype. through his questions we started asking ourselves what we actually wanted out of our day not just through photography and who was an important part of it, throughout the process carl was a great support and and nothing was too much to ask of him. when we finally met in Thailand it felt like we already knew him and the fun could begin! =)
carl was with us for an entire week and shot not just our wedding but also boudoir photos and fun activities during the days. our photos has exceeded our expectations and we truly grateful for carls enthusiasm and skillful way of capturing all the right moments.
we truly recommend carl for shooting anyones wedding!
Where to start on an amazing trip and our wedding day.
From first contacting Carl and meeting him to discuss all options, the countless calls , ideas and enthusiasm we couldn't have asked for a better photographer.
Carl was on hand from the very beginning ensuring all our visions were accounted for and that we got the shots we wanted.
Carl put in a lot of extra time and research to ensure everything was covered and knew exactly what was happening on the day to get to ensure there was no hanging around in between,
Carl did 3 photo shoots for us, a family boat day, our wedding and trash the dress. Carl was full of energy even in very hot conditions and never waivered throughout the whole day.
Our pictures are stunning and its going to be very hard to choose the ones to put up. Our friends and family have complimented on every single shoot we did and we are so greatful to have been able to have Carl as our photographer.
Carl made an effort to get to know all our friends and family so everyone felt relaxed and at ease on the day.
Being a bit nervous of posing in front of the camera became a breeze as Carl made everyone feel comfortable and for the natural shots we didn't even know he was there.
Trash the dress was something I wanted to be right....after all we had one chance to get this and I was not disappointed by the images that came as a result. Carl can see a picture in a second that creates unusual yet timeless photos.
I'm in love with my wedding photos and look at them With amazing memories of our day.
Cannot recommend Carl enough to friends and family
A true professional with a great talent
Thank you for capturing every special moment of our day
What fun we had with Carl on our engagement shoot and most importantly on the big day! Carl made us feel relaxed and helped me calm my nerves before walking down the aisle!! Apart from our group/staged shots, I didn't even realise Carl was shooting and we were so delighted when we received the pictures as he had so beautifully captured the essence of the day. Carl is a talented photographer and we are so delighted to have had him with us on the day.
Thank you for giving us ever lasting memories to treasure and capturing the joy we felt on our special day. All of love Charlotte & Tim Miller xxx
We, Peter and myself, would like to say thank you so very much for our wonderful wedding photographs and the part you played in our special day.
Choosing someone to capture the day, as we wanted to remember it was a big part of how we chose a photographer. Meeting and chatting with you before the wedding put us at ease and assured us that you were the person to do this. Both being creative people it was important to us that whoever did our photographs took on board and understood our vision so that when the day arrived we could just relax and enjoy every aspect.
On the actual day I was pleased how well you fitted in before the wedding while we were getting ready, as I was a little unsure how this would be but you went along with the mounting fun and excitement, almost as if you were one of the girls!
While doing the many group shots we asked for the mood stayed relaxed and fun and these are a lovely memento that we were able to send to everyone with their ‘thank you’ cards. We’ve had many comments from family and friends on both how good the photographs are and how well you fitted into the day, along with some comments I won’t repeat from ladies of a certain age!
The photographs of Pete and myself are fantastic and really express our personalities and the relationship we have with each other. Having never done a photo shoot before we are thrilled with how relaxed and at ease we look, you have captured some lovely moments when we didn’t know they were being taken which compliment wonderfully the more posed images- although a little nervous before the day we loved the posing in the end!
It was my newly found love of posing that prompted me to do the Trash the Dress photo shoot, which was fantastic fun and a fabulous excuse to wear my frock again. These photographs have given rise to many comments and the general consensus is that this is a great idea- I’d certainly recommend this to brides and assure anyone considering it that no actual trashing of the dress occurred!
So that just leaves me to say once again, on behalf of my new husband- it’s still novel so I thought I’d say it- and myself a heartfelt thank you for giving us such lovely photographic memories of our wedding day that we look forward to looking at for many years to come, when we’re old and grey and still smiling.

Carl was brilliant at making us feel relaxed right from the start. He helped us plan which shots we wanted and advised us what would work. Each photo captured the essence of the day and we are more than happy with the images we received. Our family and guests have all commented on how well and discreetly Carl worked throughout the day, he was so polite and patient with everyone. It was a pleasure having someone so relaxed as it helped us enjoy the day more, making the photography of the day anything but regimented which it can sometimes be. As well as beautiful formal shots of the wedding party, ceremony and all the family groups we asked for, Carl captured spontaneous moments of fun and hilarity over the course of the day's celebrations. I have received so many compliments about his brilliant work.
We would recommend Carl to anyone getting married, we could not have asked for more beautiful and treasured shots to remember our special day. Thank you so much!

Now things are settling back into normality Chris and I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did on our wedding day.
Our friends and family couldn't believe what a wonderful job you did with the photos (especially as we all hate our photos being taken) and how professional, friendly and approachable you were.
The photos are all amazing and people keep commenting that they look like they have come out of a magazine!
We are having trouble choosing our favourite as well love them all do much!
Thankyou for adding that extra bit of magic on our special day you are one of a kind
From Chris & Clare Williams
