Reviews Of Our Wedding Photography Service From Brides And Grooms

Dorset Wedding Photographers’ Natural Storytelling Style

“When we first saw Tom and Murray’s work we knew instantly they were the wedding photographers we wanted. Their natural, storytelling style suited us perfectly as I didn’t particularly like being photographed.

On our first meeting, Tom and Murray put us at ease and explained the whole process. They listened to all our worries and soon became an integral part of the wedding planning process. They were patient and attentive at all times.

On the wedding day itself, they put everyone at ease and so many guests commented on how helpful and funny they were. It was like having your best friends take your photos.

Our wedding photos are breathtaking and really capture all those moments of the big day. We highly recommend them and will hopefully find a reason to use them again!”

Natural Wedding Photographers Capturing Feelings And Personalities


“I had the pleasure of meeting Tom and Murray at my best friend’s wedding. I loved the way they felt like part of the wedding party, and the quality of the photographs they produced for my best friend’s wedding was exceptional. We knew we’d made the right decision in choosing them as our wedding photographers – but they are so much more.

Our photographs are just stunning. It’s hard to find the words to describe how great they are. They have such a great approach to how they engage and interact with people, they feel like part of the family.

They capture feelings and personalities. My friends and family have said they can feel the joy and happiness in the photos coming through. Everyone at our wedding commented on how professional and friendly they were and that they were a huge part of the wedding.”

Casual And Relaxed Wedding Photography In Dorset


“Murray and Tom are amazing wedding photographers in Dorset! We absolutely loved getting to know them and having them as part of our wedding day in Dorset. They were professional and friendly and felt more like guests by the end of the day! We also had an engagement shoot with them, which was really wonderful and helped us to feel at ease.

We really love the wedding photographs, they capture the day perfectly and were just as we had wanted – casual and relaxed, really capturing the mood of the day! The presentation box and mini album that we received were a really lovely touch.

We would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone, they are really really lovely guys, and a real laugh, they put us at ease from the start and we are usually quite camera shy!”

Lizzie & Ben

Stunning Dorset Wedding Photographs


“We’re so pleased with our wedding photographs and everyone else has said how stunning they are as well!

For us, our wedding photographers were one of the most important decisions to make for our wedding, and felt pretty daunting to start with. Our experience with Tom and Murray was fantastic from the first time we met them and the resulting engagement photos and wedding pictures were beautiful! Nothing was ever too much and the advice that they could offer was a great comfort to us during a stressful and uncertain time.

They are great guys and made us, and our guests, feel totally at ease and as a result, captured so many beautiful moments to help us remember our day”

Charlotte & Sebastien

The Best Dorset Wedding Photographers


“We have just come back from our honeymoon, got into bed, turned the light off, and stupidly I’ve checked my emails……..I have one from “Wedding Photographers In Dorset!…

Now both of us are a blubbering mess and Frankie doesn’t know what to do. I’ve not stopped crying for a good 30 mins at your beautiful photographs, We were able to relive our wedding again. We knew these were going to be good……..we honestly have no words to describe your sheer professionalism that shines through these photographs.

We will thank you better than this but for now please accept this email as a massive token of our appreciation. Our words have failed us and only joyful tears have been shed.”

Lynsey and Matt

Beautiful Wedding Photographs


“What can we say? Tom and Murray were brilliant from start to finish. Didn’t even notice they were there. We are so glad we booked them as our wedding photographers.

The whole wedding party thought they were brilliant. We love all of the photos they have really captured our day so well. Will be highly recommending them. So, a massive thank you to both of you.

Thank you so much for everything you both did for us on our special day. All of our family absolutely loved the day and couldn’t compliment you both enough. Everyone loves the beautiful wedding photographs. We are so happy with them all. We cannot recommend you guys enough.”
