All Thank you cards are available for verification – but you may have to wade through several piles of cards to find a specific card!

“There is nothing to beat people and occasion photography as a profession in our opinion – unless of course you can save lives!  

There is a great sense of achievement when you help to create lovely moments which can be treasured for perhaps hundreds of years.”   Gary and Sue


“My husband booked Gary and Sue as a first Mother’s Day present, to have some family photos taken with our 7 month old baby, Libby. I was skeptical and a bit apprehensive beforehand, having had a poor experience with our wedding photographer. Gary and Sue made us feel welcome from the first time we walked through the door, and the whole process was really clear, which gave me more confidence. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the experience, but their evident experience and professionalism made us all feel relaxed, and we had a blast doing the shoot, with Gary and Sue having some really creative ideas.

We couldn’t be more delighted with the end result; Gary managed to captured some beautiful shots which we will treasure, not just of Libby, but of the three of us. We were able to share the beautiful images with our family, and we will also have lovely memories of the experience. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Helen Flynn, Cardiff


“A huge thank you to Gary and Sue for your fantastic work.  From start to finish you have been so friendly, approachable and professional.  We have been delighted with your service.  You made us feel at ease in front of the camera and made the whole experience fun and enjoyable. (For two people who didn’t feel comfortable in front of the camera at first!)  Your work and your service is second to none and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending to others in the future.  Thank you for capturing our special day so perfectly and for the stunning album we will treasure for life”  

Michael and Rebecca


“Thank you both for your lovely email this week!  We can not believe it has been a year today since our wedding!

We are posting some your photos today on Facebook and still can’t believe what a fantastic job you did. Thank you for capturing our day so beautifully; we couldn’t have asked to work with better people (and to laugh so much!)

Lots of love, Corinne and Gavin x”

Lianne and Andrew’s Comments about us:

“After going to what seemed like thousands of wedding fairs and not being inspired we were gratefully recommended to Gary and Sue. On a day of high emotions they captured every part from the nerves to the excitement through their amazing ability to see a great photo opportunity and capturing photos that really tell a story. They felt like part of our wedding party and the results spoke for themselves, they really are a work of art. The difficult part was choosing which images we wanted in the album as each photo was as amazing as the next. Gary and Sue helped to make our special day even more special and we truly have an album full cherished memories.”


Cerys and Chris sent us a card – I quote:

“To Gary and Sue,

Thank you so much for our stunning album and images.  We are absolutely thrilled with them.

It’s been such a pleasure having you both as our photographers.  You made our day so special and memorable, not just for us, but for our friends and family too.

What you do is truly amazing and we feel so lucky to have found you!

Thank you both so much

Chris and Cerys xxx “

“Dear both, I spent some time with Cerys yesterday looking at the wedding photos you took.  They are absolutely fantastic.  Thank you so much for all your hard work.  You both made Cerys’s and Chris’s wedding day such fun. All guests have said how brilliant you were on the day. Thanks again.

Now have difficult job of making decision which photos to have!!!

“Well where do we start? Thank you! You were both fantastic on our wedding day – despite the weather! I don’t know how we could have managed without you – better helpers than my bridesmaids!! The photos you took are out of this world and you both really captured the mood and atmosphere of the day, for this we would like to say a big thank you! Love from …”

EMMA and ANDREW, Photography, Wedding Ceremony at Penmark Church.  Reception at the Miskin Manor Country Hotel, Miskin, Llantrisant, South Wales.


“Thank you, it just doesn’t seem to say enough. The photographs were great; you were great, and even the sun shone through. It was so nice to have the detail shots you would forget like the headdress, bouquets, and even down to the smallest details with the place cards and the flowers on top of the cake. As for the photos, you captured the day exactly as they planned it, everybody enjoying themselves and laughing all the time, Gemma and Lewis may have smiled all the time, but you helped them enjoy it with your witty humour and funny remarks. The kids loved you too!

I’ve always worked with you both on a professional level at the hotel, but it was nice that you took the photographs at my sister’s wedding, after all you are the best, and that’s just what she got! Thanking you once again for every thing, best wishes”

CLAIRE CHURCHER,  Wedding Coordinator, St. Mellons Country Hotel, St. Mellons, Cardiff.
