Testimonials and Engagement Photography

“I still get goosebumps when I look through the beautiful photos you took of our wedding. You did an absolutely fantastic job and we are so pleased with the results – I hope you are too! It was great fun being able to share the occasion with you – we had a ball! I hope we get to catch up again when we’re next in the UK to say thank you in person over a beer!”

Ben & David, wedding photography client


“Thank you for a rare and valuable experience. The portrait photography photo shoot was at the same time challenging and enjoyable and the results were stunning: all and more what I hoped for them. You have a special personal gift to turn a photo shoot into a dialogue and to use your technical skills as the servant of your vision. I will have to learn some more yoga postures!”

Tony Evans, portrait photography client


“You are utterly AMAZING! I am grinning from ear to ear looking at all the photos from my party. I am thrilled – far exceeded my expectations and the best money I think I’ve ever spent. Absolutely incredible, I don’t think I can ever thank you enough. You’ve caught some amazing moments and all the people I cherish. Thank you so very very much for doing this for me. Forever grateful.”

GSE Agency

“John has worked with GSE developing some iconic photography for some of our leading Olympic athletes who we’re promoting in the run up to London 2012. We couldn’t have asked for any more in terms of the standard of service we received from him and the quality of the images he produced were of the highest level and now play a large part in any marketing collateral we produce. Safe to say we already have more dates in place with John to shoot our other clients.”
