South Shields Engagement Shoot Photography Tyneside THUMB

Hollie & Aidan

“Ray is amazing!!  –  I would 100% recommend him as a photographer!!

We had an engagement shoot with him before our wedding (also booked with Ray) and the photos were out of this world. He was willing to meet us at the crack of dawn to capture the sunrise and nothing was too much to ask of him. He replied to messages/emails straight away and was happy to answer any questions we had.

We got our engagement photos from Ray on the same day so we didn’t have the long anticipated wait to see the finished product and we were blown away by them. One of our “must haves” for our wedding photographer was that we were able to get along with them, well we certainly did that with Ray. He was full of banter and funny stories and it meant that our smiles in the photos were genuine laughter.

He put us at ease straight away and gave us helpful tips on how to stand so we didn’t look forced or like robots. Sorry for the long review we just can’t give this guy enough praise. He is brilliant at what he does and is definitely in the right business.”

All our guests were full of compliments for him and they are thoroughly deserved. THANK YOU X”
