Yikes! Great review alert!

If you’re looking for a recommended wedding photographer in Melbourne, I’m pretty sure this is an endorsement from Jess & Ryan posted on Truelocal….

We received so many comments from friends, family and other newlyweds about wedding photo’s. Comments not just relating to my husband and I, it was more about Simon’s work. The happiness, joy, emotion, intensity and fun he captured through his photos on our special day is something we will cherish forever and not what you generally see flicking through peoples wedding albums.

Simon captures moments you didn’t even know were happening around you! They are the sort of photos you cant stop looking at! I saw our wedding through other peoples eyes because of Simon’s work…It was an unreal feeling!

Not your average photographer. So casual and calm you don’t even know he is there, he has a sense of humour that can relax anyone in stressful moments, he has an eye for detail and the talent to get that one of a kind photograph.

Clearly.. we highly recommend Simon.

Left of centre

By their own admission, Carly and Sam were never going to be the traditional bride and groom. And I’m unlikely to ever be the traditional wedding photographer. So we clicked.
It’s not often you get to hear about kebabs and colour blindness in a couple’s vows!
Photos (including their rainbow wedding cake!) from their day coming soon, but in the meantime this is what they had to say:

Not being overly photo-y people, and with a dash of weirdness to boot, we needed someone that understood what we wanted out of our wedding photos, without telling us what we should have for a wedding.
That’s where Simon comes in. After a long and frustrating search, we happened on his website and knew straight away that he was what we were after.
Not afraid to play a little bit left of centre, Simon was easy going, energetic, and good humoured about the sort of things we wanted. He really blended into the crowd at the reception, which resulted in some great candid shots, and our portraits were stunning.
Great value, and coolest USB ever. Thanks again for everything.

I always love to hear what couples have to say about their wedding photography experiences with me, so was pleased to see Grant & Kana’s review of their Portsea Hotel wedding pop up on Google yesterday:

Both my wife and I can’t recommend Simon highly enough. He is a lovely guy and an exceptionally talented photographer. We’re absolutely over the moon with the quality and range of shots. He totally understood what we were wanting from the get-go and far exceeded our high expectations on the day and final product. We’ve received some wonderful feedback from our friends and family, even a few recently married are asking where on earth we found him? Overall delighted and would happily recommend and have in a heart beat. Look no further for brilliance and an unobtrusive professionalism. 10/10.

I’ll post some photos of their lovely Portsea Hotel wedding soon.

Sally & Paul

It was my pleasure to photograph Sally & Paul’s wedding late last year at Melbourne Grammar, which was then followed up by a relaxed (and delicious!) reception at Comme in the city.

They left me a review over on TrueLocal today, but to save you the walk I’m posting it here:

We had the pleasure of having Simon involved in our big day in December 2012. He was everything that we wanted in a photographer, very easy to deal with and unobtrusive during both the ceremony and reception. We’re delighted with the results which were a great blend of shots. We’d recommend him to our best friends.

Do you recommend your Melbourne wedding photographer?

I’m not sure why, but most of my wedding photography reviews get posted on a Monday.
Is it the first day back to work after the weekend that inspires people to do something else?
Maybe they’re still daydreaming about their wedding and want to do something nice and write some public thank-you’s?

Whatever it is I don’t mind, as it’s great to receive new reviews and it always gets my week off to a great start.

So, thanks to Belinda & Tim for this on TrueLocal today:

What can we say – just perfect!
We were after relaxed photos that captured the special moments on the day without any stress or fuss and this is exactly what we got!
Simon was just fantastic – friendly and professional from the start to the finish and nothing was too much trouble.

For our first meeting Simon came to meet us at our reception venue and he had great ideas for photos that would be a little bit different from the norm!
He blended in so well and he exceeded our expectations with the amount of time and effort that he put in on the day.

We ordered out photos on a DVD which has been a really convenient way for us and our friends and family to enjoy the photos. All in all, we are so happy with our photos, the only hard thing will be trying to work out which ones to put in our album!

Get in and book quickly while you can – Simon came recommend to us through a friend and we can assure you that word of mouth will travel fast – he is the complete package – thanks again.

Recent feedback for Melbourne Photographer Wedding Snapper

Laura & David’s beautiful wedding at RipponLea was a joy to photograph, and I guess that joy came through in the photographs.  Check out their recent feedback :

“Brilliant! We wanted a candid, journalistic type of wedding photography – natural photos of people dancing, smiling, laughing etc, rather than stiff portrait shots. Simon met this brief perfectly, and I couldn’t be happier. It was also great that he just gave us a DVD of all the shots, so we didn’t have to pay ridiculous amounts for prints. He did a great job of blending into the crowd at the reception and capturing people having fun!

Simon only moved from England not that long ago, and I think this is the reason his prices are affordable (to build a business base) – I wouldn’t be surprised if he was charging $$$$$ in a few years time – the quality of his work warrants it. Thanks.”
