“Picking the right photographer is a hard task and thankfully we found the best! I tried to get involved in most of the wedding planning and one thing I was responsible for was to find was the photographer… we booked Phil immediately and I think it was probably the easiest and best decision of the wedding.”

Louise and Graeme

“Phil was so professional and at times you hardly even noticed he was there. He even came in handy when my bridesmaid and my Mam were unable to fasten the top of my dress… Phil to the rescue! Thanks for everything.”

Nicola & Paul

“I don’t even know where to start with how amazing Phil is. He covered every moment of our wedding, we had so much fun and I really have never laughed so much lying on the grass with my legs in the air lol.”

Sam & Chris

“A massive thank you to the fabulous Phil Smith!! We got married on Friday in the pouring rain and Phil could not have worked any harder…he was absolutely drenched by the end of it!”

Louise

“Phil is truly fantastic at his craft! We received our wedding photographs this week and Phil has delivered everything we could have asked for and more. We are absolutely over the moon! Of all the wedding advice we received and could pass on, the best piece was not to skimp on photography.”

Kelly and Spencer

“I met Phil at the wedding show and knew straight away that I wanted him as the photographer at our wedding! Apart from the amazing images that he showed me I was also encouraged by Phil’s laid back attitude! I was put off other photographers by their pushy ‘selling’ spiel, Phil was different in that he allowed his images to speak for themselves, no spiel needed!”

Rad & Sat

“An Indian wedding is the most amazing, beautiful and chaotic event you can imagine. Hundreds of guests all looking stunning and a colourful ceremony. Our day was perfect in every way, beyond our expectations.

Phil can coax smiles out of sisters and grins out of grannies. He’ll work tirelessly throughout the day blending seamlessly into the background. Our families felt completely relaxed with Phil and he always listened to what we wanted.”

Siobhan & Jamie

“Jamie and I would like to say a HUGE Thank you to Phil. Not only is Phil a fantastic photographer, he is a genuinely nice guy. For someone like me, who isn’t the biggest fan of having my photo taken, Phil made me feel really comfortable and I actually loved every minute of it.”

Lloyd & Dewi

“We have been waiting with anticipation to see the shots from our day & Phil has definitely NOT failed to deliver! Just looked through our album design and have been WOWed! On the day, Phil was fantastic & everyone enjoyed having him around. Really easy going guy and he’s so friggin cool. By the end of the day he was ‘our Phil’. We can’t recommend him enough!”

Phil and Kate

“Phil Smith has a unique talent for what he does and we would recommend him whole heartedly. In fact, I christened him ‘The man who is in love, with love’: A thoroughly nice man.”

Natalie & Craig

“Meeting with Phil for a chat quickly progressed to constant emails, a fun and adorable pre-wedding shoot, perfect sunny wedding day to collecting our stunning wedding album however I can’t help but be a bit sad that our journey with Phil has come to an end! His addition to the build up of the best day of our lives, and invisibility on the day (no offence Phil), was simply perfect for us!”

Jemma & Paul

“Waking up on our wedding morning and seeing it was one of the wettest days of the year was heart breaking! But Phil turned this to our advantage and we have some amazing dancing in the rain shots that are so unique to us. It was Phil who made it possible. He made us laugh and put us at ease creating some of the best memories of our wedding day (how many brides can say they danced in the rain on their wedding day?!).”

Laura and Daniel

“The photos we got together were always done in a matter of minutes meaning we didn’t miss out on any part of our day. Even before seeing the pictures all of our guests commented on how amazing our photographer was.

The album itself tells the story of our wedding perfectly allowing us to relive it over again.”

David & Sara

“From start to finish Phil exceeded our expectations; producing an exemplary set of shots and album which perfectly portrayed the story of our day and our own individual and shared personalities.”

Simone & Doug

“Phil is one of a kind – personable, unobtrusive, committed and with an incredible eye for taking unusual shots. A great guy all round. We looked at lots of run-of-the-mill photographers but decided to go for Phil after looking at his gallery of natural-looking, different and unique photos.”

Stu & Lucia

“To be honest almost everyone said ‘Where did you find your photographer?’ Your ideas, the way you dealt with the kids and the way you orchestrated your work was astounding. So calm and your “can-do” attitude meant a lot to us all. I can’t thank you enough.”

Ailsa and Graeme Bourne

“The photos are perfect, exactly what we asked for and you can see how happy and relaxed (after the ceremony!) we were on the day. I also feel Phil deserves credit for putting up with a very nervous and flustered bride on the morning of the wedding, there’s not many people who could!!

Vikki & Jason

“Again, thank you Phil, the photos are amazing. You really have made our year with them. This is all we have of the wedding now and they are beautiful, precious memories.

Caroline & Paul

“Paul and I first met Phil when he was photographer for Paul’s brother’s wedding. and we were extremely impressed with the very high standard of his work. So when we began to plan our own wedding, we knew without considering any other photographers, that we wanted Phil for the job. We were not disappointed with our decision!”

Sarah and Dave

“Hey Phil, just wanted to say you blew us away with how hard you worked at the wedding on Friday. You were absolutely awesome and we cant wait to see the pics! Thank you so much, we were really impressed with how relaxed you made us feel and how good you were with our guests! We had the best day of our lives!”

Sharon And Dan

“The one thing we have to highlight about Phil is that on the day he was the perfect photographer. He got all the shots we asked for yet he was not intrusive or pushy. In all honesty a lot of the time we didn’t even notice he was there! He made all the guests, including us, feel really comfortable and at ease and this made the photos more personable and fun.”

Kate and Martin

“I met Phil at a wedding fayre and, even though I hadn’t even chosen a venue, I knew I wanted him to be our photographer immediately. We decided to get married at As You Like It which is a beautiful venue but has limited outside space so Phil suggested we could visit Jesmond Dene, which was a brilliant idea. Not only are the photos amazing but we had so much fun with Phil helping us both relax like it was just an everyday walk in the park!”

 

Harry and Sarah

“Phil was a professional but very friendly presence on our big day. After calmly organising the group shots ensuring they were done quickly and effectively he disappeared into the background and took some truly stunning natural shots. Many of our guests commented on his professionalism and the way he stealthily took his photos from the side-lines.”

Laura and Adam

“Phil really is a super photographer – we knew that we would love his slightly alternative, quirky style when we saw his gallery photos, and he didn’t disappoint. I knew we wouldn’t want lots of staged, posed photographs and when we gave him a brief to look for ‘different’, relaxed, reportage-style shots he was completely on our wave length.”

Angela and Tony

“Hi Phil, just wanted to say thank you for being our wedding photographer. The photos are fabulous and we’re really pleased with them. Also thanks for being so unobtrusive, friendly and relaxed on the day, whilst still capturing those great shots!”

Sam and Phil

“We met Phil at a wedding fayre and were immediately taken by the high quality of his work and his personable nature. The amount of time and effort that Phil put into our wedding, before, during and after is testament of his passion to get things right. Needless to say, we are thrilled with the results and would have no hesitation recommending him.”

Joanna and James

“From the amazing shots that Phil captured from the day it was evident that he was indeed everywhere, however I can honestly say that I don’t really remember him being there; in an intrusive way, which some photographers seem to be. We are delighted with the quality of the photographs and the thoughtful and creative way that the day was captured. After all the photographs are the way that we will be remembering the day when we are old and grey!”

Louise and Ross Burke

“We struggled to find a photographer for our wedding, not wanting traditional, “posed” shots, until we saw some of Phil’s work and were really impressed. Our album is fantastic and exactly what we wanted.”

 

Kirsten and Robert

“Our wedding album is wonderful. It has such a variety of photos, from those we knew were being taken to the unscripted shots of things that would otherwise be long forgotten. The layout of the album just adds to the beauty of it with different arrangements for each page depending on the moment that he is capturing. It really tells the story of our day which is just what we wanted.”

Julia and Kim

“We just wanted to thank you again for the fabulous photographs you took of our wedding. Not just for the quality of the product but also for the professional and relaxed manner that you approached the whole process – from the initial meeting, which by your detailed questioning helped us to work out what we wanted, to the unobtrusive, informal way that you photographed the wedding day”

Alistair and Emily

“After all the planning, organising and, nerves the day had finally come. The weather hadn’t been on our side on the run up to the day but, on Saturday 14th Aug, the sun finally shone. We had Phil Smith as our photographer. After attending previous weddings and seeing photographers who, in my opinion, were a little ‘pushy’ and over the top, I had my reservations, but this could not be further from the truth regarding Phil.”
