We were delighted with the service we received from Ray from start to finish. From our first meeting we felt comfortable and at ease and never felt the need to look elsewhere.

Ray was professional but friendly and gave us a sense of confidence that he would do a good job. He was very thorough in our meeting prior to our wedding and wanted to know lots of the details such as the names of bridesmaids, ushers etc and their relationship to us as the bride and groom. Ray also wanted to know the finer details of our schedule such as the type of dress so that he could be as prepared as possible.

On the day, Ray was prompt and his relaxed nature put us all at ease and gave us one less thing to worry about. After the ceremony he was extremely happy to take as many or few photos as we wanted and he immediately struck a chord with all our guests. His knowledge of the venue meant he knew where to get the best photos and he captured a range of stunning shots. We are delighted with our album and we always felt fully involved and in control of the finished product. We would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.

We came across Ray as I had seen a friends album that was done by him and some pictures of various weddings on facebook and his website.
I knew that when it came to our big day that there would only be one photographer for us.
When we had a date in mind for our wedding the first thing we did was made sure Ray was available for our special day and luckily he was!
Ray is such a friendly, kind and approachable man and the time he puts in to your wedding is endless.
We had two meetings before our wedding day to go through all the plans so that Ray could try to get to know abit about us and our families, he made up an itinery which I thought was such a good idea so you have something to follow, he got all the names of our bridesmaids flower girls ushers etc etc.
On the day we had Ray and the second photographer Di. We would highly recommend to have the second photographer as they get to capture the grooms side and all the little things you wouldn’t think of.
Throughout the day Ray and Di were both great, they felt like part of our family, all our guests loved them and we had such a laugh.
From start to finish they made sure everything ran so smoothly.
A Couple of weeks later we came back and met with Ray to see our photos, he set up a slideshow of our images and let us sit back and watch. We were truly amazed as what had felt such a long time ago (2 or so weeks) everything came back to us and the pictures we have are perfect and we are so lucky we have these to cherish forever.
Ray then showed us our draft album and it was fab, we only made a few changes to what was our final design, were now waiting for this to arrive but I know we wont be disappointed.
We highly recommend Ray and cant thank him enough for everything he's done for us.
We will miss seeing him. Hopefully we can get him to capture some special moments in our future.
Thankyou so much Ray

What a great guy!

We came across Ray during our search for someone who we wanted to capture our special day. We arranged an appointment to meet him and he welcomed us into his 'cabin' in his garden, which straight away was an impressive first meeting! Ray is extremely professional but at the same time very down to earth and very easy to talk to. We knew instantly from our first meeting that he was the right guy for us! No need to look further! So the next day we booked and paid our deposit at a local wedding fayre that he was attending. At this fayre there were several other photographers and I can honestly say not one of them gave the first impression that Ray did.

So our journey began. Ray dedicated many hours to the preparation and planning of our wedding. We had several meetings to discuss what we wanted from him prior to the big day, he showed us his previous work and really listened to what shots we wanted on the day. He made the effort to ask us the names of the wedding party and what their roles were so he had an idea of who they were on the day - very special. He took the time to check out both the church and reception venue prior to the big day to make sure he knew where the best shots could be captured etc. He even attended our rehearsal, with his lovely second photographer Diane, and introduced themselves to the vicar.

On the day Ray was fantastic! Bless him, it was his birthday on our wedding day but he made sure we felt like it was our big day (although, I secretly think he enjoyed all us ladies singing happy birthday to him during bridal prep!). Ray was punctual, flexible, and respectful. He had his ideas but also allowed us to have ours and went with the flow. Diane was the perfect compliment to Ray. All of our guests commented on how lovely they are and how they really fitted in.

Post wedding, the dedication continued. We were invited back to Ray's cabin to look at all of our photos that he had processed and condensed (this took him hours and hours!) and he spent the next 2 hours going through them with us. We then came back again for another meeting to show him which photos we wanted for our beautiful album. What we're trying to say is that Ray dedicates an unbelievable amount of hours to each couple to really ensure they receive the best service.

We cannot stress what a fantastic deal you will get with Ray - an individualised service start to finish, beautiful professional photos, one of the best wedding albums on the market from Graphistudio, a friendly smile, hours and hours of dedication and all for such unbeatable value.

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer, a better wedding album and a better service all round. From start to finish Ray has been fantastic! We are over the moon with our photos and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ray at all. We can 100% guarantee he will not disappoint any future couples on their big day!

Thank you Ray for everything! Please carry on making other couples happy - we look forward to seeing your future work!

We first stumbled across Ray, whilst looking at soooo many differenent photographers websites. I fell in love with his work (All his shots looked amazng)

We were pretty clueless when it came to what we wanted etc (We are both very laid back in our approach) Ray was happy to help, going through what to except on the day and how things were going to plan out.

Ray is incredibly thorough when it comes to the finer details of the day taking time to prepare a detailed schedule, this is for his own benefit but we also found it incredibly helpful and reassuring.

On the day Ray was just fantastic; incredibly patient and flexible, he engaged really well with all the guests, the children loved him (He got the kids involved with Bridal Prep, which also meant they werent getting bored) His friendly nature meant he just blended into the crowd.

At the venue there wasnt much scope for the WOW factor photos, so he came up with the idea to pop out for an hour, just as husband and wife to Ninesprings park, We had some great photos there. Thinking outside the box which we loved as it wasnt something that crossed our minds.

After returning from our Honeymoon, we are so pleased to find all our photos were ready and a draft album had already been created.

Overall, working with Ray was an absolute pleasure, he is 100% dedicated to delivering you the best album you can wish for and you can be 100% positive that he will not disappoint. We would recommend Ray to absolutely anyone.

Thank you so much Ray for everything ; )

We first met Ray a Wedding Fayre, there were several other photographers there that day but Ray immediately caught our attention, not only with the stunning examples of his work but also his incredibly friendly and welcoming nature.

We were pretty clueless when we sat down for the first meeting and didn’t have much of an idea about timings, order of the day, or even what pictures we wanted to begin with but Ray was just brilliant talking us through various different ideas as well as explaining the different packages he can offer.

Ray is incredibly thorough when it comes to the finer details of the day taking time to prepare a detailed schedule, this is for his own benefit but we also found it incredibly helpful and reassuring. He was so methodical and organised that we just knew we wouldn’t need to worry about a thing on the day – knowing we could put our complete trust in him was fab.

On the day itself Ray was just fantastic; incredibly patient and flexible, he engaged really well with all the guests and his naturally gentle and friendly nature meant he just blended into the crowd. He took time to research the venue beforehand and as a result had some lovely ideas to ensure we captured the various stunning backdrops and scenery around the grounds. We had asked for a lot of natural pictures as well as the usual posed ones and wow did Ray deliver. The pictures he took are just amazing, and it made our job of choosing our favourite images for the album incredibly difficult!

Ray was so supportive in helping us decide the layout and overall look of the album, spending many hours with us in ‘the shed’ trying out various different layouts etc. It took a while but it was most definitely worth it. The quality and finish of the album is simply outstanding and absolutely worth every penny, we honestly could not be happier.

Overall, working with Ray was an absolute pleasure, he is 100% dedicated to delivering you the best album you can wish for and you can be 100% positive that he will not disappoint. We would recommend Ray to absolutely anyone.

Thank you so much Ray for everything ; )

With very fond regards
