After a couple of years of ups, downs, highs and lows, trying to plan a wedding abroad, our dream wasn’t meant to be. So, with short notice we managed to put together a local wedding, followed by a night do already had planned as an after-celebration. One of the first names we mentioned, with regards to planning the local wedding, was Steve’s. Having known and worked with Steve a lot over the years working in the wedding industry, there was no doubt Steve was the right guy to capture our vision of the day. As a couple, we only requested a specific handful of photos to be taken on the day, going with a more chilled and relaxed vibe; we left the rest up to Steve. We put 100% trust in him and never looked back; what we got was beyond what we could have ever imagined. We also had a videographer booked, from away, and these two got on so well it was as if they had known each other and worked together many times before. Steve has such an eye for capturing the most beautiful moments naturally, and he’s a pleasure to have around on your special day; he makes everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. He works tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure your day is shot perfectly, and nothing is too much trouble. Not only an amazing photographer, but also someone to call a friend. Our memories and pictures will last a life-time and our day would not have been complete without Steve there. Thank you and forever grateful,

Well what can we say, Steve was absolutely brilliant before, on the day and also afterwards. He made us feel comfortable and it was a pleasure meeting him. The pictures we received on a pen drive in a wooden box are lovely and also a slide show on CD, all the pictures from the full day were better than we ever could have guessed. All of them perfect from lovely angles and lights, black and white and pictures we never even knew where taken. We can't wait to see the photo album that we will get from Steve.
We would recommend Steve for any occasion where you would need a photographer and without any doubt we would always contact him for any pictures in the future.
Thank you so much Steve you've managed to capture the whole day in your amazing pictures which we will cherish always.
All our thanks and well wishes

"Steve Hillman - What a guy, what a legend. Without Steve, we wouldn’t of had our perfect wedding day. From planning a big weekend wedding for two years, to cancelling and deciding to elope, Steve was with us every step of the way. Eloping is exciting but also daunting - No family or friends around, yet Steve was Bridesmaid, Best Man, Stylist, Coordinator, Photographer and most importantly, that friendly face. The guy who walked in and told me I looked beautiful, who waited whilst I downed my gin, stood with me whilst I stuck my eyelash back on, held my bag and then asked if I was ready to go and get married. This guy is more than a photographer. The kindest man with a big heart. Find a photographer that when soaking wet, lays their jacket on the ground so your dress doesn’t get dirty, balances on the rocks and happily snaps away. It may have been raining stood by the lake in our wellies, but Steve still managed to capture those magical moments ✨ Forever grateful, the privileged Bride & Groom."

"Steve, Steve, Steve!
This man is an absolute legend.
He was recommended to us from a previous wedding we attended. From originally contacting him, he was so friendly, honest and supportive. He told us from day 1 that we needed to trust him & let him run the day, we did and it was the best decision we made.
We had lots of communication with him after booking, we drove to meet him at a wedding fayre and the bridesmaids loved him & his albums showed us what to expect from our wedding photos.
When lockdown hit we had only just started booking our suppliers, I did a lot of research but was panicking and wanted recommendations from someone I could trust, in came Steve, he recommended so many of our suppliers and everyone of them was perfect and added so much to our day.
When the wedding announcement happened 10 days before our wedding day, Steve was on hand to answer any last minute questions and gave us a call to run through what we were expecting from him and the photographs we wanted from the day, this eased our nerves and reminded us why we picked him.
Fast forward 10 days to our wedding day, Steve arrived and checked in with both Gareth & Myself, he made sure he introduced himself to all our wedding party and was caputring moments of the day from the second he arrived.
He got so many photographs throughout our wedding day, and in all honesty, most of the time we were unaware he was taking them, he captured so many natural photographs of us as a couple, as well as of our family & friends.
Our list of formal photographs was done so quickly and efficiently, yet we all still had fun and laughed throughout. Nobody felt they were waiting around and his attention to detail is second to none.
We received our photographs from Steve less than 2 weeks after getting married, he also created a slide show full of our songs to watch which showcased our whole day. Everybody who has seen the slideshow/photographs so far has been blown away, so many moments caught on camera that we didn't expect, all natural and truly beautiful.
Myself & Gareth cannot thank Steve enough for his support, guidance and friendship, as well as documenting the most important day of our lives in such a beautiful way.
Anybody looking for a wedding photographer, we would 100 million per cent recommend him. He supports in making your day run smoothly & you genuinely feel safe leaving things in his hands.
We cannot wait to see our wedding album & look forward to catching up with Steve when we are up in the Lakes!
Thank you for all your support both before & during our wedding."
