What Our Customers Say

Our client experience is at the heart of our business, read what people have to say about us...

  • Dear River,

    From our first meeting we knew that you understood what we wanted from our wedding photos. You really listened to what we asked and put our mind at ease. You guided us through the day and helped it go so smoothly and captured truly amazing memories that we will cherish forever. You went above and beyond (quite literally climbing a ladder to get the perfect shot and risked getting your ankles wet in the stream) to ensure we got beautiful photos.

    For that we are truly thankful. All our guests commented on how you blended well into the background and snapped some very natural shots. We cannot thank you enough.

  • As a bride I was just not used not being in control. But you kept me relaxed as you were just so calm and focused. You said we should enjoy our day. It was brilliant. I had planned my dream wedding and the photos were an important part of our day.

    The photos really do tell my wedding day story that’s worth thousands of words. We love our album it captures some fantastic moments and I love sitting down and reliving the day. It really is a family heirloom. Thank you, so much!

  • Highly recommend River Xavier, he was a fantastic photographer. He was so friendly and helpful. The guests said he was like a ninja just appearing out of nowhere, one minute he would be lay on the gravel next to a tree getting photos, the next he would be hanging out a window. He was literally there all day capturing moments, some in the moment shoots and posed shots we wanted. He was such great value too, highly recommend.
