Fantastic! We used John Thompson (Pure Image Photography) for our wedding on recommendation from a friend and we couldn’t have chosen better. John was such a lovely person to have around on the day making us feel so confident and fitting in well with all our guests – we had lots of people commenting on how great he was before anyone had even seen the photos! And the photos were also incredible. We couldn’t have asked for more. Beautiful photos that were delivered quickly and with a really stunning slideshow too. To our surprise, when the USB was sent to us in the post it was also sent with a gorgeous wooden box and some printed photos, which was a really lovely special touch.

Book Pure Image and you won’t regret it. Thanks for everything, John.

“john was amazing to work with. he came highly recommended to us by our friends and we were both so happy that we booked him. he was calm, attentive and completely understood us both. our guests said that they didn’t notice that he was there and that is exactly what we wanted. we couldn’t be happier with our photos.”

Rosanna Jamie

“We couldnt have asked for more. He stepped up and from the get go made us feel relaxed and confident in him. He blended in to the scene and subtly helped to orhestrate the day. When we got the photos back, we and all of our family were over the moon with the photographs. He used the surroundings, the weather, the locations and the guests, to make some memories last forever.”

Emily Freddie

“John photographed our wedding over May bank holiday weekend and we couldn’t recommend him enough. From when we first met him, to the last pictures he took on the evening, he completely put us at ease and made the whole experience fun. He knew exactly where to get the best shots even though he hadn’t shot at the venue before and we are absolutely thrilled with the final results which we will cherish forever, so thank you so much!”

Geogina Barry

“I’m so glad we chose John as our photographer; his friendly, kind & relaxed manner put us completely at ease on the day. John never misses an opportunity for a shot and his talent is second to none – our wedding photos are better than I ever could have imagined! Thank you so much John.”

“Wow!! Myself and Garry have received our photos and we cannot express how in awe we are. John captured the excitement, laughter and tears of our wedding day in a beautiful way. Do not hesitate to book with Pure Image. We barely noticed John unless we were having our couple shots. So so pleased we chose you!!”

Georgy Mike

“We loved having john as our Photograher. He was recommended to us and strangely a month before we realised he was photographer at my best Friends wedding where I was maid of honour. After that day we were even more excited to have john. John was so friendly and made us so relaxed, we do not like posing. He was so professional but also approachable on the day, we both said how much we would miss John after the big day. After the wedding he Kept in contact and the Photos arrived quickly. They were better than we could have imagined and arrived so well presented. We cannot thank john enough and feel like we made the beat decision choosing John.”

Carly Steve

“John was the photographer at two weddings we have attended in recent years, and when we saw his work- we loved his photos. John’s communication from day one was fantastic-he always answered all of our questions with helpful answers. From the moment John arrived at our venue, he was friendly, professional and discreet. John ensured he took all the shots we had asked for plus he happily took others which we decided on during the day. John also provided our photobooth for the evening so he was with us for over 12 hours, which meant he captured every picture we could’ve wished for. Our photobooth picture gallery was ready to view very quickly after our wedding day and our main photos were ready in a few weeks, which was brilliant. We absolutely love our slideshow that John created, we show everyone and we watch it regularly too! It really tells the story of our day. The wooden box with prints and the USB stick is a really lovely keepsake and we are in the process of ordering an album. Our memories of our wedding day have been captured perfectly- we cannot thank John enough. Thank you!”

Claire Chris 1

“John did an excellent job photographing our wedding. He made sure we got all the shots we wanted, using the venue and the surrounding grounds expertly, and took many wonderful action shots throughout the day. He wasn’t pushy or demanding and he made sure our enjoyment of the day was paramount.
The resulting photos were perfect, and we couldn’t recommend John more highly to anyone looking for a photographer for their big day.”

Natalie Tom

“John was brilliantly friendly, professional and kept us in contact leading up to the wedding. The USB was sent in a beautiful presentation box. we are very pleased with the photos and loved the natural shots.”

Tora Josh

“Amazing! We arent natural posers and wanted more natural pictures. John made us feel so comfortable and confident and it really shows in our pictures.”

Michelle Dan

“From the moment we meant John we knew we were in safe hands. He was polite, professional and seemed to ‘get’ exactly what we wanted. On our big day he was amazing – funny, polite and lovely to all our guests. The photos never felt like a chore, and he came up with some ideas we would never have thought of. Now we have our photos back i can tell you he’s even more amazing! They are stunning, the best memories from our day we could have hoped for, absolutely everybody comments on how beautiful and full of emotion they are. Thank you so much John, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you, you made our day complete!”

Laura Peter

“So very happy we used John and Pure Image Photography for our wedding. I’d looked at lots of photographers’ work and all of it felt a little bit cheesey. When I looked at John’s work it genuinely moved me to tears. So natural and creative. We were not disappointed with the results. The photos are stunning and such a wonderful record of the day. John had a great rapport with the younger guests and an excellent professionalism throughout. Thank you!”

Sarah Matt

“Words cannot describe the talent that John has with a camera. John visited our house to show us samples of our work and within 5 minutes we were sold- although we didn’t tell him that. He is beyond passionate about his work and capturing the moment of your special day. He is patient, caring, funny, and spots and seizes every moment. We have just received our photos and have over 700 all of which I absolute adore. These are some of the best photos I’ve seen in my life and we will cherish them forever. John captured the love and laughter from our day perfectly and we cannot thank him enough.”

Michelle Mark

john was amazing, he was so relaxed and friendly, everyone commented on how nice he was. he didn’t get in the way, or make you feel like he was there, he just blended in and obviously his photos show how amazing he is at photography! john also travelled 200 miles to be our photographer, so we really appreciate that he travelled all this way and had to spend extra time away from his own family. i first discovered john’s work in march 2012, when a lady i worked with shared her wedding album with me. i was blown away by the photos, everything about the style of his work was exactly what i love about photography so she gave me his card to keep. i had kept it all of these years, i even had john picked before i had met my fiancé haha! thank you so much john.

mark fliss

“My new wife and I had John to do the photography at our wedding on the 28th December in Essex. 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.”

ewmma 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”
