Full Description
AGStudio is Mark and Mandy - husband and wife team that go that extra mile for all of our clients from passports to weddings and everything in between! it’s not just a job to us, it is a passion we share and it is part of who we are. We have been in the photography business a long time, our first wedding was April 1995. When we started out we were using 35mm and 120 roll film you had to know your lighting and make every image count there wasn't any retakes back then!! We still use that diligence and technical ability to this day. The amount of equipment we take to a wedding is mid boggling but that's what we have to do to ensure that we have every eventuality covered. A profusion of camera's, Lenses, studio lighting, light modifiers, and props. The difference between a weekend shooter and a true pro can be quite astounding. We are quite honoured that our clients choose us to capture their special moments and that other photographers take inspiration from us but we feel that our quality, no gimmick, no hard sell services are unrivalled! AG Studio combines 23 years of professional working experience (accumulative we almost reach half a century) with creativity & tried and tested photographic technique to create unique images at every shoot. Whether you are looking for wedding photography, family get together, romantic photographs, photo-journalistic shots, candid, corporate, contemporary images, or images for commercial purposes. Packages start from as little as £1000. ***** With the current Covid-19 outbreak we will work with couples who have their wedding cancelled and need to move to another date. As long as the new date is not booked by another couple we will honour your booking and move it to the amended date at no extra cost *****

Simply the best photographers
Mark and mandy are truely wonderful. They covered our wedding on the 19th of october at smiths court and despite forecast thunder they reassured us that they will work with the weather, thankfully the sun came out just in time. From the 1st meeting to the wedding day they made us feel welcome and calm. We changed our wedding date from febuary 2020 to this october with only 18 weeks notice. And despite the planning that needed to be done they took us on with no problems and produced the most perfect pictures of our day. I would highly recommend them not only for weddings but for family portraits and singles shoots. We are using them again for our maternity shoots with confidence they will do us proud. We have made friends for life and will continue to use them forever! Thank you so much ❤❤

Amazing photographers
Mark and mandy covered my wedding at Smith's court on the 19th of october and I could not have asked for anybody better! They have been excellent from first meeting till the end of the evening and me and my wife cant wait to see the final shots and to continue to use ag studios in the future. The sneak peeks were beyond our expectations and they truly captured the day perfectly. many thanks to them both.

Our most beautifully amazing day.
We could not have asked for more from Mark and Mandy. They were everything we needed them to be professional, supportive, kind, thoughtful and fun. We wanted our day to be shared with all of our family and friends, this included our photographers. The wedding was filled with fun and laughter. Mark and Mandy went above and beyond thinking of things we hadn't such as a crouchet hook for my dress buttons, tissues, spare this and that. They were a dream to work with and really understood what we wanted from our day. A dream team from start to end. Thank you both
