Wedding Photography Reviews and Testimonials

All these reviews and testimonials were given independently each time I entered The Wedding Industry Awards! Very humbling words from lots of the very lovely people I’ve had the pleasure to photograph along the way!

Priya + Jay: My husband and I are not the most photogenic of couples, nor are we the most comfortable in from of a camera. Adam made us feel comfortable and excited. He has a way of walking into the room and brightening the atmosphere and making everyone smile and laugh. He was part of the group as soon as he arrived and did not once feel like an external supplier. Our comfort is reflected in our photos, they are natural and contain every emotion of the day. They truly are beautiful. We love you Adam!

Carrie + Adam: Adam was amazing from start to finish. From the moment we first spoke to Adam and saw the quality of his work, we knew that his style was exactly what we wanted. Adam is super professional, the whole process was seamless. On the day Adam was amazing, he made everything so easy – lots of our guests commented on how personable he was. He was just super cool! Always thinking ahead, especially with the weather being so changeable on the day. The finished product was nothing short of incredible.

Charlotte + Tom: Adam is one of the nicest guys my now husband & I have had the pleasure to meet. From the second we spoke to him we clicked & the standard of the photographs we had seen from previous weddings were incredible! He did not let us down. Everyone commented on how lovely he was & how at the most intimate moments you didn’t even realise he was there. Our photographs are works of art & one of a kind. The box we came home to from honeymoon was an amazing touch & we will treasure our photographs forever!

Sarah + Michael: If I could score higher than a 10 then I would. Adam blended into our day perfectly, provided a proffessional service from intital enquiry to delivering the album, and has given us the most perfect photos to cherish forever. I will never regret having adam as our photographer… i would choose and recommend him over and over again.

Kizal + Shalin: We chose Adam as we had met him at two of our friends destination weddings. He just fitted right in, you felt comfortable if he was taking a photo of you (unless he was in stealth mode – which he extremely good at!) Right from the start, communication was efficient, to the point and smooth. These things make all the difference when dealing with suppliers for weddings. On the day, he was calm and it felt good to have him around, gently directing group photos then couples photos.

Anna + Jack: Adam is an incredible photographer and I couldn’t recommend him enough! His friendly and relaxed approach made having the portrait photos a lot less daunting and the natural style of his photos captured all the special moments we otherwise would have missed. We received the final photos a lot sooner than expected and every one of them was amazing leaving us in no doubt that our choice in photographer was 100% right! We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos!!

Sean + Laura: Great service from a all round great guy. Outstanding photography. Everyone compliments us on how good our photos are.

Hanna + Mark: The photographer was the first thing we booked as soon as we had confirmation of the date and venue, I fell in love with Adams work & knew I needed him to photograph my big day. From our first Skype call Adam was so friendly, down to earth and professional. I cannot put into words how happy we are with the photos, they are AMAZING- better than I had hoped (& I had very high expectations) Adam captured every single emotion in the most natural beautiful way possible. I couldn’t of asked for more.

Stephanie + Ewan: Adam was very professional and very prompt in both his responses and in us receiving our wedding photographs. We just received our photographs and truly relived those magical days from viewing his work. There were photographs that had us laughing, those that truly touched our hearts and then those that made it all feel like a magical dream or scenes from a movie/magazine. We could not be happier! He truly heard our requests and went above and beyond what we could have hoped for.

Danielle + Nigel: Adam is a unique photographer in that he really immerses himself in the occasion blending in with the guests and getting a feel for the atmosphere. from that perspective he is able to capture real images that are genuine and unstaged which is exactly what we wanted. he also pushes the boat out taking shots, like night time shots that have wowed our friends and family. He is a cut above the rest.

Claire + James: We were absolutely delighted with Adam’s photographs! They captured our day perfectly and many of our guests have commented on how talented he is. Adam was great fun to have around while I was getting ready getting ready, and seamlessly blended into the background during the reception. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing wedding photographer!

Liz + Gill: My wife always wanted to book Adam for our wedding. I can honestly say from the first email he sent me, I trusted he would ensure our Wedding would capture our emotions and that we would have memories we would cherish forever. We both cried with joy when we watched our video and saw our photographs, and we will cherish them forever. To be able to capture true emotion is a real gift, and Adam has it!

Saloni + Rishabh: Weddings are a big deal around the world. For me, not surprisingly, it was also a huge deal. It was a celebration, of course, but it was also a momentous time in my life which will begin my second life…now with a partner. It was basically our rebirth. I can not stress how imperative it is that you get the right people to capture these memories for you to forever treasure. I believe memories are very important and could sacrifice on the decorator, planner or food…but not the photographer.

Emma + Tony: Adam is the ultimate professional from start to finish. Choosing Adam to capture one of the most special days of our lives was not a mistake. Adam moves around so discretely and captured so many wonderful moments. I was very stressed on the day but Adam is a very calming photographer. If you want the perfect photograph experience then Adam is the only choice. His photographs speak for themselves. Amazing photographs of the day that arrive beautifully boxed. Adam is a class act.

Lauren + John: To put it simply, Adam Johnson’s photography is the best opportunity you will have to relive and enjoy your wedding day all over again. He beautifully captures the moments (even the small ones that no one else sees) that mean so much from the day and his photographs truly depict the magic of your special day from start to finish. Every photograph he sends you is worthy of being framed. We could not think of a more worthy winner for this award and will never be able to thank him enough.

Helen + Baz: The best wedding photographs we’ve ever seen.

Sarah + Rich: I think he is the best photographer • He captured every part of the wedding perfectly, all with his exceptional creative vision. Many guests said they are the best wedding photos they have seen • He went out of his way to accommodate our every request, including a late night London photo shoot until 2:30am so he was with us for 15 hours but was still enthusiastic! • He is great fun to be around and promptly responded to all emails • We got our preview photos in 3 days and 1000 photos in 4 weeks

Leanne + Ben: Adam is an absolute pleasure to work with, his communication is fantastic, he fitted in well with all our guests. His creative side is amazing and we have some really stunning photographs.

Rebecca + Gaz: Adam was everything I had hoped for from a photographer. Very friendly, laid back, and a great eye for a fantastic photo. I love his style and he captured our wedding perfectly. On the day he even turned up with an additional photographer (not something we had paid for due to trying to keep costs down) which allowed them to get shots of both of us getting ready in the morning. Whilst we were on honeymoon he sent us some highlights which was so lovely. I would recommend him to everyone!

Amy + Matt: We knew as soon as we’d seen Adam’s work online that he was our ideal photographer and we weren’t disappointed! He captured our day perfectly, whilst being in the background enough to allow us enjoy our day without having to pose endlessly. Both myself and my husband were nervous about being photographed but Adam made us feel completely at ease; more like he was just another of our guests. The finished photos are stunning and there are so many beautiful moments that we can look at forever.

Kathryn + Adam: Adam was very approachable and easy to get on with from the word go. We had two informal meetings prior to the wedding whereby he got to know Adam and myself, our preferred photography style and personalities, which meant he knew exactly what to do on the day. He is extremely passionate about his job, and showed true dedication throughout our entire wedding day (leaving last!) and produced absolutely beautiful photos. One of a kind.

Lynn + Phil: What can I say about Adam, From a brides point of view Adam was absolutely AMAZING! He was everything and more I could of wished for. He made our wedding day so relaxed and did everything i wanted from him. His form that you have to fill in before the big day is a brilliant idea, it has absolutely everything he needs to know about us both as a couple and the picture’s that I definitely wanted, And it also gave me great advice on timings for the big day itself. He is a professional!

Anonymous: ARJ has an ability to create timeless natural photographs that look straight out of a movie scene. The brilliance in his work is evident because he is able to catch all the drama and theatre of the day leaving you wanting to constantly get the wedding album back out! ARJ constantly looks to take photographs which are incredibly unique in all light and weather conditions. I cannot remember the number of amazing comments made when friends and family view our wedding album.

VJ + Andy: Adam’s attention to detail and creativity was apparent very quickly, and was reflected in our engagement photos which we were very happy with. Adam made us feel at ease and we both felt like we had a good connection with Adam. On our wedding day, the moments Adam was able to capture on camera is priceless, the emotion that each picture provoked is genius so I can not recommend Adam enough. He is also extremely artistic and open minded which created some amazing and unique photographs.

Katie + Craig: Adam was such a pleasure to have as a photographer. The pre wedding shoot was excellent. He took a real interest in the wedding and feel we wanted to have. His enthusiasm and obvious love of his job made us even more excited about our wedding day. On the day he couldn’t have been more accommodating. His relaxed natural method made him feel more like a friend/ guest than photographer. He managed to get some amazing photos that really captured the essence of the day.

Gemma + Tim: Adam is excellent at capturing the day and telling a story. He is unobtrusive and fits in to the day perfectly.

Becca + Charlie: Adam is a fantastic, highly skilled photographer & all round great guy. From 1st contact he made us feel like old friends, absolutely ‘got it’ when we discussed our ideas & was able to direct us accordingly whilst allowing everything to happen very naturally, helping us feel totally at ease. His enthusiasm for the job was infectious & came across in his personality, photographs (breathtaking) & all the extras (delivery prompt, well presented with a handwritten card – lovely touch!). Excellent!

Emily + Donal: Adam quite literally made our day, because the moments he captured help us relive the incredible love, joy and fun day we set out to create. Our large group of creative friends have said they’re the best wedding pics they’ve ever seen, above all they captured the essence of us. Everyone else at our wedding of dreams was a family member or friend, so we were nervous about having someone we didn’t know present all day  Adam is relaxed, professional and most of all a gentleman.

Nikki + Dave: Fantastic experience, a total pleasure to work with.

Sandhya + Parit: We chose Adam because of his ability to capture the essence of festivities and the events in their natural progression. His inconspicuous method of photography and professionalism was second to none. He was very easy to work with and understood the importance of capturing certain moments of our Indian wedding, which he did fantastically. His ability to capture emotions through his photography’s is brilliant, which when we look back, will allow us to remember how we felt at that moment in time.

Suzy + Hugh: I literally could not fault the service we got from Adam. He photographed a friend’s wedding and we immediately knew we wanted him to take our photos too. He was friendly and helpful, knowledgeable and technically brilliant. We were so excited to see our photos and we were not disappointed. All our friends and family have commented on how well he captured the mood of the day and we feel grateful we will have such a wonderful lasting record of our wedding day.

Hannah + Matt: I visualised a relaxed and natural approach to the photography at my wedding. I knew that I didn’t want a ’staged’ or ’posed’ reflection. After looking through the galleries and blogs on the website I instantly knew that Adam was the type of photographer I had imagined. He captured our day perfectly, as it unfolded with real reactions and emotions that pour out from each and every shot. We have received so many wonderful comments about our photos and i would recommend Adam to all.

Dan + Kate: Adam has an incredible talent for capturing the story of the day. His work was of an extraordinary quality and his photos left us wanting to do the whole day all over again! His enthusiasm for his work is truly Infectious.

Sheridan + Nick: Adam is an outstanding photographer, he really captured the day and made us feel at ease throughout the whole process, my husband is not very good with posing for pictures but Adam had a way of making us laugh and so the whole thing felt very natural. He was reliable and was there to capture every important moment as it happened, even ones that we did not know we’re taking place. We would recommend him to all of our friends and family and anyone looking for beautiful wedding pictures!

Elaine + Hugh: Adam’s photographs of our day are incredible, we’re so thankful to him for the beautiful work he’s done. One of the most moving touches was a slideshow of a selection of images from the day with audio of the speeches. It has moved many of our friends, relatives and us to tears. A true gentleman & artist. Meeting him was like seeing an old friend again, he is charmingly and reassuringly normal, and he fitted in perfectly with our family and friends. A much needed calming influence too!

Amanda + Bruce: Adam was so approachable and friendly. We had a chat on the phone and he answered my many questions and made me feel very confident that we had finally found our photographer. I had spent months searching online for a photographer who did the sort of style we wanted within our price range. On the day he was a great help at home beforehand, including giving my husband advice on his speech! He guided us through the day and was calm, professional, friendly and importantly produced amazing photographs.

Sarah + Tim: We loved the highly original shots of the two of us and the natural shots of our guests’ reactions to our day. We also loved how Adam captured funny moments from the day (bridesmaids not being able to walk in their shoes) or things that were personal to us (husband is a Man U fan and we got photos of every United player who made up our seating plan!) We didn’t expect that, but it just shows how much he immersed himself in our day, which is reflected in the results. Adam blew us away!

Dan + Caroline: Myself and my wife are both creatives – so a creative and interesting photographer was a must for us. Instantly fell in love with ARJ’s style, use of light, colours. and when we met him, fell in love with him (think ive got a bit of a man crush!!). He was a great on the day – unintrusive, yet not shy, was totally in control form start to finish – great afterwards and we have still kept in touch – we’ve even recommended to another family member – so looking forward to seeing him in action again.

Hannah + Jamie: Adam gave us so many show-stopping pictures that captured who we were as a couple & the beauty of the venue. I can’t tell you how many comments we have had on our pics! We barely saw him the whole day but he was always there getting the shot. Ours was a Jewish wedding & Adam beautifully shot all the important moments even though he wouldn’t have known exactly what was going on. Adam has always gone out of his way to be chatty and friendly, from when we booked to getting our thank you cards.

Katie + Rog: Adam is a very special photographer, a genuinely lovely person and incredibly talented for capturing wonderful memories that make you feel like you are reliving the experience. Adam knew what we wanted but we also had complete confidence to let him use his creativity and experience to create unique shots that we consider our favourites. Our guests mentioned how at ease they felt with him, and he was such a pleasure to have around. We were also so happy with Adams blog write up of our day.

Natasha + Neil: I think Adam was wonderful, he has a unique vision, he is very pro-active and has some great ideas. Adam thinks outside the box and this does really come through in his work. He caught some touching moments at my wedding, I made a list of moments that I felt were vital to capture and he did just that.

Helen + Rami: Adam really got stuck in, I barely noticed his presence. Both myself and my husband prefer the natural photographs and Adam really engaged with this by capturing the moments of which we may not have seen. We are so impressed with our photos, he even put a slideshow together whilst we were waiting for the full selection. In addition, from the moment we first met to when we received our USB pack with some prints included he has been so helpful and responsive to my numerous emails with questions.

Gemma + Jonathan: After finding a venue and securing the church, the photographer was the next on my list to be booked as I love good photography and we wanted to capture all the elements of the day and he’s certainly done that. We love the photos, the tones and warmth Adam’s brought are exactly as we had hoped for and more. He really listened to our likes/dislikes. Adam was quick and didn’t fuss when taking shots so that we could relax and enjoy the day but with the confidence that the results would be stunning!

Becki + Ben: Adam Johnson of Arj Photography is so much more than a photographer, he is an artist with an incredible talent. His enthusiasm for capturing beautiful moments is inspiring and, as we discovered, he will continuously go out of his way to ensure he captures that perfect shot – even if that does mean standing in overgrown woodland, knee high in nettles! Adam created and captured some unforgettable memories on our wedding day and was an absolute pleasure to work with.We will forever sing his praises.

Aram + Sarah: Adam was fanstatic. His ideas of wedding potos matched our ideas – minimal staged shots. we wanted a “reportage style” and thats exactly what Adam provided. We are really pleased with the results and the price was worth it.

Alan + Gemma: Absolutely Exceptional all round photography! Adam is a credit to the industry and was a pleasure to have as an addition to our wedding, as a photographer and as a person. He interpreted exactly what we wanted, however improved on it! Adam is very personable and interacted effortlessly! I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone. We are eternally grateful for his work and have the most incredible photos to remind us for a lifetime. A deserved winner of this award (in fact any award!).

Katy + Mark: I am from a family of wedding photographers and my now husband is an amateur photographer so we had very high expectations – we have seen a lot of lazy shots, poor depth of field, over stages etc too many times. Adam was very professional, easy going and very unobtrusive on the day. He felt like a guest. He completely understood one of our key needs to have food shots to reflect the venue even though that isn’t quite a normal wedding thing! But most important, he truly cares about your day.

Gemma + Alan: Firstly Adam was a joy to have around at our wedding, we couldn’t have been happier as we were so comfortable. I had always worried about having my photo taken so many times and feeling like a primadonna on my wedding day. Adam is a true professional and makes you feel so at ease, in fact , his reportage style of photography made you feel like he wasn’t there. We couldn’t have been happier when we saw our photos online for the first time. We were absolutely thrilled with them.

Sarah + Matt: Adam was exactly what we wanted in a wedding photographer. He has a real passion for what he does and it was the uniqueness of his photos that drew us to book him. He was extremely personable and was a great combination of relaxed and focused, excitable for you about your day and reassuringly calm. Our meeting before the wedding was really useful to establish what our expectations were and on the day he fit in with the guests and the day. And the results? We feel they speak for themselves.

Sonia + Ben: Adam is excellent and incredible professional. He dealt with the comments and suggestions from family members during the family shoots with extreme professionalism. Adam was invisible during the reception and wedding breakfast, however captured the most intermittent moments with a natural touch. When we received the little white box, it looked beautiful and presented simple but elegant. Our photos are magical, we are over the moon with them Adam did a fantastic job.

Alex + Sally: I understand that giving Adam all 10’s may appear a little too good to be true, but please let me explain. From the initial enquiry to delivering the most beautifully impressive photos, Adam’s performance was absolutely seamless. I’m speechless as to how Adam captured so much emotion, love and life without us ever noticing he was there. Exceptionally understanding, polite, professional, gifted, intelligent and conciencious. Adam is an impeccable businessman who happens to take wonderful photos.

Kate + David: For us and our wedding, Adam was an absolutely amazing photographer. We are from the UK, but currently live in Australia so I did all my photographer research online. When I came across Adam’s website and previous wedding photography I was absolutely sure this guy would capture our wedding perfectly.

Jackie + John: ARJ was professional friendly , understated and great throughout the whole process i suffer from anxiety and was very nervous but Adam worked around me to make sure i was comfortable with every aspect on the day not an easy task i can assure you He was more like a guest than a photographer amazing.

Helen + Adrian: Adam was so professional and friendly. We met several times before our wedding so on the big day itself we felt like we could completely trust in him (+ his helper Chris!) to capture the feel of our day which is really important as you have so many things going on.! We will treasure our album forever.

Louise + Rahul: Adam immersed himself in our wedding for 3 days. We worked together on style and settings and he produced beautiful photo’s that we’re exactly what I wanted. I’m a TV director so I was quite demanding. People at the wedding thought we’d been friends for years. That sums him up.

Anonymous feedback received when I entered The Wedding Industry Awards in 2014:

Adam has been brilliant! We had a pre-wedding shoot because we were very nervous, but Adam fitted into and truly captured our day perfectly. We LOVE our photos. My bridesmaid works with a lot of photographers and said she doesn’t think she’s met such a professional and quality photographer as Adam.

Adam provided us with a pre-wedding shoot which allowed us to get used to the camera, guidance and direction, after this we felt at ease. The photos look fantastic, the colours look natural. Very little work has been done to the images which is what we wanted.

Adam was fantastic and we’re so glad we booked him. Incredible photos, professional and friendly customer service, ability to offer advice and listen to customers. We didn’t even really notice him during the day until the evening when he’d already processed and edited a selection of preview shots.

To have Adam as your wedding photographer is an amazing experience. He’s thorough, considerate and empathetic to your big day…but totally driven in ensuring you have the most beautiful collection of wedding images imaginable. Superb website, great customer service…and just a really top bloke.

Adam was ace! We were comfortable and relaxed around him the minute he walked into our house. Incredibly professional, creative and just amazing! The way he captured our wedding day is beyond words. The best!

Adam is a truly amazing photographer and also a really great guy. He made our Wedding day so easy and he really captured the fun and relaxed atmosphere of our special day. We are so happy with our photos and can’t stop looking at them and re-living our special day. Thank you Adam!!

He blends right in …. uses light brilliantly … love his photos …. indian weddings are tough and he has the best eye ….such a joy … few people in life give 150 percent all the time

Adam is extremely professional and captured our wedding day perfectly, I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Adam is just amazing at what he does. I hate having my photo taken, but he put me at such ease. It really helped having the pre-wedding shoot. We’ve just had our wedding photos this week, and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. He made us look amazing and captured all of the important moments.

Adam was professional, friendly and has masses of creative talent; you only have to look at our photos to see the level of his skill, creativity and eye for detail. He blended into the background at our wedding and our guests thought he was fantastic! So very delighted with our photos-priceless.

I cannot find fault with Adam’s service so have given him the 100 mark – everything he did for us was totally on the mark! We gave him a brief which he completely understood and gave us exactly what we asked for… but better. Much better!

Adam is a fantastic photographer and an absolute expert in his field. He clearly has an enormous amount of passion for what he does and the photos he takes capture those special moments beautifully. He always looks for something a bit different in the style he shoots.

I feel blessed to have come across ARJ Photography. Adam was an absolute joy to work with. This was the second Indian wedding he had shot and the results were simply outstanding. He truly captured the emotion of every moment so beautifully and his pictures will be treasured by us and our family.

Adams photography to put it simply is exquisite. As a documentary photographer he captures all the moments you wish you could relive again and so much more. His attention to detail and eye for the bigger picture is incredible. With out a doubt Adam deserves to win this award.

Adams work captured our attention right from the start, such natural timeless and elegant pictures – we knew straight away that Adam was the  photographer for us. He listened to exactly what we wanted and at no point were we ever worried about the end result – only excited to see our images!!!

Adam was a hit, both with us before the wedding day because of his professionalism and the enthusiasm he had for our big day, and with the guests on the day itself because of his unobtrusive documentary style coupled with how easy to get on with he is. Most importantly we love the photos!

Adam is very personable and friendly. We do not like having our photos taken and he put us at ease. Friends and colleagues have all commented on the high standard of our pictures.

Adam’s obvious love of weddings and of his art is contagious. Our pre-wedding shoot (inclusive) really helped us gel with Adam making the big day effortless. The time we spent with him getting out special shots was a highlight of the day, great fun! The guests thought he was great too. Top bloke!

Adam is the epitome of what a wedding photographer should be. The images are a perfect representation of the whole day, but also beautiful and creative. His manner was unobtrusive, calm and cool. He sent the link to our photos on the day we returned from honeymoon, which was very timely/thoughtful!

Simply brilliant. Adam FORCED us to have a prewedding shoot, which we thought would be a nightmare, however, it was an inspired idea as it made sure we got to know him as a friend before the big day! Totally non intrusive style of shooting. Very user friendly website. Quick to answer questions.

ARJ were fantastic! I was over the moon with the quality and variety of the photographs and Adam the photographer fit right into my day with such ease.

I am so happy we chose ARJ photography for our ‘Big Day’ Adam really told the story of our day from start to finish, which is so important since there is so much going on. He captured people’s personalities and characters in the relaxed natural way we wanted, we couldn’t be happier! Thank you Adam x

Adam from ARJ Photography is friendly, profressional, and most importantly, passionate. He shares his clients’ vision and will do whatever it takes to get the perfect shot. Words cannot describe how happy we are with our photos, and more importantly, I feel like I have gained a friend in the process.

I absolutely cannot fault Adam’s photography, or personality for that matter. His professional yet friendly manner, attention to detail and his creative streak make him the perfect photographer. He is not simply a man with a camera, he is an artist whose pictures speak a thousand words.

We could not have asked for a better service than Arj provided for us. Adam is highly skilled, imaginative, creative and very friendly. We knew we could totally trust Adam to provide us with a fabulous documentation of our day and were thrilled with the amount and variety of photos we received.

Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. He felt like like a guest at the wedding but produced photos better than we could have imagined. Adjusted to the day as needed and helped us to get the type of photos that suited our personal preference. Perfect service overall!

We found Adam to be extremely relaxed and reassuring throughout the process. His ability to fit in to our day and take control when needed without taking over meant that we got great photos without him being instrusive.

Adam is everything you could wish for in a photographer. Not only is he incredibly talented and professional but he is approachable. I hate being photographed but he made it so much fun and I now have these beautiful pictures to remind me of that one amazing day. He is worth his weight in gold!
