Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Craige
Hi, The wedding photography market is saturated and confusing (everyone is a photgrapher). The most important thing is do you get on with the photographer. Yes OK they need to take good pictures but it's more important that you get on with them. I will meet with you to ensure you that we are compatible before we move on to the next stage and taking photos. Call me anytime. Regards

Captured through the Lens.....
We chose Craige to be our photographer for our wedding after he was recommended to us. Craige listened to what we wanted to get out of the day with the more traditional style photographs. However captured the ‘in the moment’ style we also wanted. He took pictures of moments we may have missed if it wasn’t for Craige......From me (the Bride) getting ready, to James and his son together and then the sunset photos. They were all amazing. Craige understood who we were as a couple (engaging in a pre-shoot with us) to what best aspects of our venue he could use for great photographs. Craige was respectful of the fact this was our special day but made sure no one was missed out on being involved. Then to be able to view some of our initial special ‘snaps’ part way through our day was an added bonus! Craige you were fantastic! Thank you x

A great photographer
We booked Craige for a wedding. Everything was arranged very easily with a few short calls and we provided an itinerary. Craig showed up on time, dressed very professionally and did a sterling job. His personality and ability to interact with our guests and put them at ease made for some great quality shots. Craige's professionalism and hard work was very much appreciated. We've been left with some great pictures of our guests having a fun time at the wedding! Many many thanks Craige!

A true professional, outstanding photos, warm manner with a real eye for detail. How lucky we were!
A true professional, outstanding photos, warm manner with a real eye for detail. How lucky we were! We have been very fortunate to find such a professional in Craige. Like all weddings, costs can quickly spiral out of control, we had a budget that Craige could work with and we were overwhelmed with what we actually received on the day. He kept in touch regularly before the event, we had a Skype meeting because we live far from him, he left us feeling assured that on the big day everything would be fine. On the big day itself Craige arrived early and got to work straight away, I don't recall for the next 12 hours if he stopped for one minute. Our guests remarked on how engaging and warm he was, the ideas for the shots were perfect, the patience he showed throughout the day was wonderful. When we received the photos, they were delivered in the most beautiful way (we will not spoil it for the next happy couple). All in all we feel blessed to not just find each other but to have found Craige Barker Photography. Contemporary, beautiful photos with a lovely guy at a great price!
