lovely words, from lovely people.
Where do I even start with a review of Stuart as a professional, and the quality of his work? Throughout our very long Covid-affected marriage journey, Stuart was absolutely phenomenal, and one of our stand-out suppliers in terms of his cooperation, support, consideration and amenability. Nothing was too much for him, and every new obstacle, Stuart offered a solution, always making us feel reassured.
When we finally reached the wedding, Stuart’s approach on the day was absolutely perfect. He was everywhere, snapping everything, without being invasive or commanding, and still allowing us ‘our moments’. When he needed to direct proceedings, he did, and when he was snapping the candid moments of the day, he was very subtle.
Finally, the results…the pictures are absolutely phenomenal. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful depiction of the day. We are so happy with all of the photographs. Thank you.
My now husband found Stuart online and was immediately drawn to his unique arty style, and all important beautiful black and white photos! On the day he was so engaging, easy to talk to and made us feel so at ease! He made sure he was present during all the parts of the wedding and captured so many awesome parts of our special day.
We have just received the photos back and are so so impressed with how many there are, how absolutely gorgeous they all are and just how they captured our feel for the day. They made me cry! We are so ecstatic with the fact that these photos will be with us for ever and always remind us of that amazing day. Thank you so much Stuart, you are so talented.
We knew Stuart was insanely talented from looking at his portfolio before we booked him but wow we were completely overwhelmed when we saw our wedding photographs! My husband and I are a bit awkward and uncomfortable being in the spotlight but you wouldn’t know it from the photographs, we look so natural. Stuart made us feel at ease and captured the best of us, he even made us look a bit cool!
He was able to capture our wedding in the most natural and beautiful way, even the most raw and subtle moments (and moments when we didn’t even realise he was there!). The way he works with natural light is really soft and beautiful. We’ve had so many comments about how beautiful the photographs are.
We also just wanted to add that we opted for a second photographer which was definitely worth it, Jade was amazing and so lovely, and it’s great looking at the same moments from different angles.
Stuart is not just an amazing photographer who knows his stuff, but he is also a friendly down to earth person! His unique way of capturing the moment is what drew us to him. He was very engaging from the moment of booking right the way through. His pictures captured exactly what we were after, from the passionate moments of just us, to everyone having an amazing time.
We can’t thank you enough for capturing our special day in your unique way!
Wow! What can we say!
We have just received our photos back and they have captured our amazing day perfectly. We wanted to find a photographer who could not only capture us on our day, but everything else- the guests, the scenery etc, and Stuart went above and beyond! His cinematic yet relaxed style truly portrayed little moments we might of missed. Honestly, I never realised our wedding photos could of been so beautiful.
Even though I may not be used to having photos taken, Stuart makes it so relaxed and natural, there is no need for posing he simply will just photograph you as your true self! So many people have commented on how stunning the photos are. The best choice we could have made!
We had the privilege of having Stuart as our photographer for our Indian wedding. I found Stuart on Instagram and instantly fell in love with his artistic and cinematic approach to photography. From the initial phone call, Stuart was so laid back that it did not once feel like talking to a stranger!
He wasn’t pushy at all and did not try to sell himself – his work did the talking. This is one of the main reasons why Stuart was our favourite wedding supplier. He was prompt on the day, relaxed and respectful of our guests and religious ceremonies. He was always on hand to capture every moment, even when things got pretty hectic!
We were also so surprised how he managed to turn around our photos in a matter of weeks! I can’t recommend Stuart enough, his work is fantastic and his personality is just an added bonus. Thank you so much.
Stuart isn’t just a ‘wedding photographer’.
When we started looking at wedding photographers I knew I didn’t want to end up with a typical set of wedding photos – I wanted something completely unique that would document our day in a different way to all the other wedding photos I’ve seen. After seeing Stuart’s work nothing else I looked at compared so we had to book him.
What Stuart does and did on our day was capture the feelings as well as the images, documenting the day exactly as it was. He carefully considers every shot but not in a contrived way, he looks for the small details and his pictures evoke every feeling and emotion in that moment.
We now have the most stunning and evocative photos to look back on from our special day and treasure – what he creates is art. Having Stuart do our wedding photos was one of the best investments of our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
Stuart is what you call the glamour kid : moves fast, works invisible and creates the most loving and delicate imagery of your wedding that you could imagine.
We had a 250 strong wedding & the love we felt on the day was captured in the photographs he took.
It makes me well up when I look at these images, we can see the people who were there for us and that was the most important part for us. He made us beautiful.
We’ve just received our wedding photos back and what we can say…. they look INSANE. With Stuart’s photos, nothing looks staged, or over posed! It’s truly like he isn’t there and yet all the photos are all incredibly personal!
He worked very well with me (the bride) as the tequila took hold of my wedding day and seemed to be okay with my increasingly ridiculous demands!
If you’re looking for an alt wedding photographer in Dorset, Stuart is the guy for you!
There are so many choices to make when planning your wedding day and my god it can feel so overwhelming. One thing that Adam and I both agreed on is that we wanted a smashing photographer that we could trust to capture the essence of our big day. Photos truly are the gateway to memories passed and as such it was imperative to choose a photographer that would document it for us perfectly.
Even a quick glance at Stuart’s work shows you his keen eye and attention to detail and through his photos you can feel the emotion and energy from that snapshot of time.
From the get go, it was no fuss and straightforward and quite frankly the least stressful part of our wedding planning. We had the ‘Mighty’ package and that’s exactly what we got. When Stuart says that he will be there for the whole day, he means it!
Even after us having to change our wedding plans due to COVID, Stuart was accommodating and understanding throughout. Stuart asked us to fill out a questionnaire to relay our wants and wishes which was really helpful because it made us sit down and think about what we wanted to specifically capture.
On our day, Stuart and his second shooter Karina were perfect, they arrived when they said they would and they were both dressed smart. Me and my bridal party all felt at ease as Stuart joined our getting ready party because simply put, he’s a lovely chap to have around and a great hype man too. He even helped me put on my outrageous wedding shoes!
Throughout the day the most awesome photographs were captured with moments that as bride and groom we wouldn’t have otherwise known about because it really does fly by in a crazy euphoric blur! Every aspect of our day was captured so we won’t forget a thing, including when my hoop came out of my dress.
After the wedding, we were so excited to receive our photographs and Stuart amazingly turned around a selection of previews the day after our wedding. This meant that we had wonderful images to use on social media to announce our nuptials to the world but also a taste to whet our appetite of what was to come. When we got our album back, many of our guests shared the photos on their social media and the number of prints that now adorn our friends and families’ homes is testament to how great the shots are.
We could not be happier with our photographs and they will be treasured always. All that is left to say is, thank you Stuart!
From the moment I sent Stuart a DM on Instagram all the way through to the final shot on our wedding day, he engaged (no pun intended) and communicated his entire process with enthusiasm and positivity. On the day, Stuart was on time, prepped and enjoyed engaging with everyone (including our kids who were obsessed with showing him Lego) – the resulting photos were BANGING.
If you’ve seen Stuarts work on his website or his Instagram and you want a gnarly, cinematic vibe then what you see if 100% what you get – I would recommend Stuart a thousand times over and I can’t wait to book him again for our anniversary shoots..
