Reviews and Praise

I am very proud that my business is based on recommendations, I get a lot of my work this way. I recently got through to the final of the Wedding Industry Awards for Best Photographer in the South East of England and as part of the judging, my couples from the past year are asked to submit reviews of me and my business. Below are some of the reviews from the wonderful couples that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. You can see lots more reviews by visiting my Facebook page. Click here to open my Facebook page.

Mark & Fliss

“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!”  

Ruth & Paul

“John was absolutely amazing, we couldn’t fault him. He understood exactly what we wanted and came up with some absolutely stunning images that captured our day perfectly. On our day it thunder stormed and we had torrential rain – this did not stop him capturing every photo we wanted and the creative shots he came up with blew us away. We ended up with such beautiful and unique photos we will treasure forever – he captured every emotion perfectly.”

Emma & Daniel 

“I can’t rate John and his company highly enough, his professionalism, attitude and behaviour is outstanding. He has an ability to put anyone in front of his camera at ease (trust me until the wedding there were only two pictures of me and my other half and we had been together 10 years). The thing that makes John stand out from the crowd is his unique approach to photography which is so different from the traditional and out dated usual approach. John is the perfect modern day photographer”

Lydia & Dele

“Lovely photographer. Very accommodating. Amazing pictures. Didn’t get in the way and made us really relaxed”

Claire & Michael

“If it was possible to give John more than 10/10 I would. He was absolutely fantastic from our very first meeting up to the end. On the day he was faultless, John made all guests feel comfortable (& laugh). They have commented since on how professional & brilliant he was! The photos John captured of our special day were even more spectacular than we could have ever asked for. I cannot praise him enough & when we renew of vows we will be contacting him again!”

Kelly & Chris 

“Absolutely first class service from John. He understood exactly what we wanted for our wedding day and really made us both feel comfortable and at ease on our big day. The photos when we received them were incredible they captured each and every moment of the day perfectly! The wonderful addition of the slideshow video was so lovely and was a real tear jerker! The way the photos came and how it was all presented was a lovey touch but something we will always be able to keep and look back on.”

Rosanna & Jamie

“John came to the house to discuss our wishes. On the day he arrived early to take photos of the day as it unfolded. He was totally unobtrusive and managed to get shots that were totally unexpected. Our guests were very impressed with the quality of the photographs and he included everyone who attended. He did not leave the venue until the sunset and captured every moment of the day – almost like a video. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

Stacey & Clint 

“John was humble and sincere from the day we met him & we knew straight away that he was the one for us. His photographs are out of this world and he really fit into the vibe on the day, suggesting fun ways to photograph special moments. He caught our cake smash and our space hopper confetti walk in amazing quality and we adore his twilight shots. Best of all, John is the nicest guy- many guests commented & thought he was a family friend as he got on so well with everyone! He was outstanding!”

Eleni & Martin

“From the first communication with John, I instantly felt comfortable and trusted that he would do as asked and be reliable. Very responsive in all communications and silly questions from me during the booking process and weeks leading up to the big day but he surpassed himself on the actual day! He made us feel so at ease and we didn’t notice he was there the majority of the time which was important to my husband who doesn’t like photos, most importantly absolutely thrilled with the photos!”

Elenor & Dan

“John did a fantastic job at making the whole photography experience as relaxed and hassle free as possible. He was very accommodating and nothing was any trouble for him. He showed real passion for the job and the pictures he took captured the day perfectly and to a brilliant standard”

Michaela & Adam

“We could not of asked for a better photographer to be a part of our special day, John took the time to take as many photos as possible with a big variety for us to choose from. John was presented very well on the day and made us and all of our guest feel very relaxed when it came to the photographs. We have very high quality photos and we could not be more happy. The aftercare was high quality and we are very happy with our choice of photographer for our wedding day.”

Chloe & Dan

“John was awesome before, on the day and after. Photos are put up all in our home …really pleased and have already recommended him for a friends wedding”


Alex & Brad

“Literally cannot fault Pure Image. From the initial enquiry through to final meetings/issue of final album the service was courteous, professional, very informative and full of vision. We had total confidence in John’s ability and talent and as such meant that we were able to leave him to his own devices with no concern at all, leaving us (the bride!) to concentrate on organising the rest of the day. Was very impressed from start to finish and Have already recommended to a friend.”

Richard & Tracey

“We first encountered John at my daughters wedding and really loved the way he dealt with everything on the day and were so amazed at the  results. We then spoke to my daughter and she also highly recommended him so we decided to immediately secure him for our own wedding day. Our decision was rewarded when our day went off fantastically and it was only a short period to wait before we were able to view the amazing results of our special day. We would highly recommend John”
