From the moment we got engaged Craig and I knew that Steve was the photographer for us. Months went by building up to the wedding and we could see Steve's photos from other weddings and we knew we were in safe hands! He really does capture the most natural, stunning photos. This is something we really wanted. Natural snapshots of moments with our friends and family. From the absolute get go, Steve was brilliant. Not only is he an absolute gentleman, he instantly puts you at ease and captures your day perfectly! We've just sat and cried watching our photos and we feel like we have re-lived the whole day again. As a bride, I've loved seeing the moments Steve captured that I didn't quite see! Craig, my husband (eeek!) also said the same. I also love how Steve captures photos of other professional suppliers like the florist, musician, cake etc... all of the work behind the scenes! Everyone comments on how friendly and helpful Steve is. If you're looking for a professional photographer with bags of experience and a good eye for detail, book Steve now! We can't thank you enough Steve - love The Woodburns đź–¤

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."

"I cannot say enough about Steve and the service he provided my wife and I on our wedding day. We had quite a specific list of photographs, a lot of guests, a lot of drinking and dancing and shuttling about and he delivered an upbeat, friendly, and accommodating service and we were absolutely blown away by the end product. We felt like we could relive the whole day again looking through a wonderful series of brilliantly produced photographs. Steve has been so easy to deal with before, during and after the wedding. If you are getting married and you are lucky enough that Steve is available to be your photographer - well done!"

"Mr Steve Hillman.
Where do we begin?
We initially booked Steve in 2019 for our 2020 wedding, which of course we had to postpone until 2021. Through each date change Steve accommodated our day, without hesitation.
Finally the wedding day was here, Steve arrived early doors for our morning ceremony and stayed until the very end. Steve is not just a photographer, he was a guest, a friend. A guest who just happened to have a camera. A friend who gave us the upmost privacy, but at the same time captured the moments that mattered. The people, the details, the laughs and happy tears. We were at our most comfortable and our happy place with Steve.
We are forever grateful for what you have created for us, a timeless album of our day, built with memories and a source of reflection to relive our day, over and over again.
Thank you Mr H."

"We have been guests or part of the wedding party at so many weddings where Steve has been the photographer that it was only ever going to be Steve when the day finally came to it being our turn!
Steve is part of the 'group', it's just like having a friend with you on the day that you don't actually see the camera which gives the day a relaxed feeling which was perfect for us.
Steve mingles, mixes, chats and unassumingly goes about his work, capturing the most perfect images - it really is like re-living the day all over again when you are given your USB and DVD.
Steve goes above and beyond, helping throughout the day, not just taking photographs! It's lovely to see the relationship he has with the other suppliers and staff at the venue.
Thank you Steve for being part of the day, it is always an absolute pleasure to see you and we will be forever grateful to you for capturing the day and keeping the memories alive through the amazing images."
