they say...

"I never personally thanked you for all of your hard work in getting the canvases and album to us before Sarah left to the UK. 
So thank you! We absolutely love our photos, the canvases and the album. 
We know that we are clients who want everything to be perfect and are very detailed in our approach but you have delivered to us exactly what we wanted with patience, generosity, great ideas, a great sense of humour and a smile on your face. It is no surprise that you have a great reputation and business. 
Thanks again from us."
Bassam and Sarah Maghzal

"Angela was everything we could have hoped for in a photographer – and more! She was easy to communicate with, friendly, had useful suggestions (for non photography related things) and went out of her way to get perfect shots of our day. She is versatile, and was prepared to manage a challenge with an unknown wedding location (Angela saw the wedding venue less than a day before shooting there) and come all the way to the Abel Tasman with us and our family for the whole weekend. The consistent comments from our guests were about how personable Angela was, and how she was so dedicated and passionate about her job. Angela had a special knack of getting just the right number of photos, with incredible timing – plenty for a huge variety, but a limited time frame - enough that the whole reception doesn’t disappear before your eyes. After the big day Angela was incredible at keeping us up to date with how she was getting on sorting them all, and popping enough sneak peaks online to keep the family occupied while waiting for the real deal. Cannot recommend highly enough. Best investment of our big day - now we have the difficult task of trying not to print every single shot - believe me it makes for tricky choices!"  Nicola & Richard

"You did such an amazing job editing these photos!!! Thanks SO much! They are amazing!!  We just finished looking at the gallery!!! Wow!!! You have done an incredible job!! There are so many more moments we had no idea you had captured that are incredible to have. We laughed out loud more than once! We particularly love the shots of me with the flower girl, and hiding behind the bushes as we walked toward the aisle! And I'm so happy to have shots of me and my mum getting ready :) And all of the shots of Lewis during the ceremony too!

There are so many amazing ones!! You also have some incredible shots of the kids. I'm sure they will be treasured by their parents.  Thanks so much from both of us! You somehow managed not to miss a single moment and yet we were barely aware that you were there.  Thanks again - we are both grinning ear to ear and off to the frame shop :)".  Faye & Lewis Tuck

"We just wanted to thank you again for being such a great photographer for us. Caroline found you really relaxed her, you got amazing candid moment shots (with typical expressions) of so many of our friends and us, you stayed with us for such a long time, and you let our photos speak for themselves (they don't appear very post-production altered).
We are amazed by the quality of your work. We are developing a wedding album of our favourite photos (359 in total) and it will be amazing thanks mostly to your great skill.  Thanks again for all your help."  David & Caroline Rusk

"From our very first meeting  with Angela (being our engagement shoot) any worries over the photography aspect of our wedding were forgotten, Angela being such a personable lovely lady, soon had us at ease in front of the lens, something that we felt shone through in her portfolio photos as well as Angela's obvious photography talent.

With many positive comments on the day and since about our choice of photographer from family and friends we highly recommend the talents and professionalism of Angela, who we now proudly call our friend."   Kylie & Stu Poore

"We were involved in a wedding at the weekend and realised (again) what a wonderful job you did at our wedding. You helped make it totally stress free!".  Toni & Chris Lindsay

"Angela was amazing to work with - her awesome sense of humour made us all feel totally at ease and everyone loved her.  We felt so relaxed during any time we had photos (to be honest I was a bit worried about this part as I'm quite nervous around a camera!) but she made us all feel great".  Emily & Ben.

"Without a doubt, we recommend Angela. She made everything easy for us and produced beautiful shots in every location we asked for. When it comes to choosing who to capture your special day and make sure you don't get caught with a shot of food in your teeth, there is no contest!"  Hannah & Sam.

“As an Event Manager of 20 years, I don't mind admitting I am hard to please re photography ... so choosing a photographer for my own wedding was no mean feat!  On seeing Angela's portfolio I quickly recognised her fresh talent, good eye and ability to 'capture the moment'.  We are so (so) happy with our photographs.  I wouldn't hesitate to book Angela again personally or in my profession.  Anyone can take a nice photo of a bridal party smiling for the camera on the count of three.  It takes someone special to take an exceptional photo.  Amongst a sea of 'good' photographers, Angela stands out with her rare ability to capture those 'spontaneous moments' that others often miss."  Ali Hobson-Nauman, Event Manager, Creative Events Unlimited (Ltd).

“Angela was fantastic,from the moment we met and chose her to be our photographer through to the end of our big day she was so helpful, happy to answer all our questions, offer advice, and provide ideas on all things wedding! She took the time to get to know us so that our photos were so much more than just us in nice locations – they reflected our personalities and who we are, as well as capturing the emotion of our big day, and we were blown away by the results. They will be treasured forever. I will definitely be using Angela to capture many more memories in the future, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone!”.     Hani & Andy

Angela, Ian and I were so overwhelmed with the experience and passion you put into your work! And it all shows as we are left with amazing, special photos that will remind us for a life time of our wonderful day. It was the most perfect day, and we have the most beautiful photographs that captured the mood, the people, and the occasion so perfectly, and we will have that with us always, to remind us forever. 
We also thought you did a great job working with the crowd and everyone on the day! We can’t thank you enough for the awesome job you did Angela. You made it an easy, effortless process that was stress-free, very personable, reliable and accommodating. We couldn't have dreamed of more, thank you so so much!"  Emma & Ian Frankish.

Your work yesterday at my friends wedding was so professional - but in a fun, relaxed way - well done! Heather Swain
