We just wanted to say thank you so much for photographing our wedding in July. The pictures are absolutely amazing and even looking back at them now make us smile. Any time anyone needs photographs we will be recommending you two! Even our guests commented on how great you both were.

We choose David Islip photography to capture our magical day because David took an interest in our day he asked about us, what we wanted and about our wedding day, he gave me a quote based on what we required. Other photographers didn’t ask anything about us or our day but just gave us a price, I felt David made a quote feel more personal and he already cared about us and what we wanted. On the day David and his wife were amazing, they created an extremely relaxing and calm atmosphere. I wouldn’t hesitate in using their services again in the future, we are so so happy with our wedding album (I’m just looking at it again now and it makes me smile so very much how our day was captured so beautifully). Thank you Janine and Richard

Hi David and Sandra,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing job you did with our wedding photography. You were a great team to have on board and we are 110% happy with your work! You were prompt when responding to any queries during the planning and so useful on the day with all of your different suggestions and help. You worked as an organised team, ensuring everything was captured but were never intrusive and seemed to fit in with the crowd.

Thanks again and it was great to have you there, we would absolutely recommend you to others.

Georgina and Tim
