Thank you so much
We are so pleased we chose Steve and Sandra to be our wedding day photographers. From the first meeting we were set at ease by their professionalism and experience. The final pictures are beautiful, not only capturing our joy on the day but also the amazing building of Manchester Town Hall - we loved reliving the day and have looked at the photos so many times already. Every email, query or request was replied to promptly and the options available for prints and albums gave us just what we wanted. These two very lovely people added to the smooth running of our day; we would make the same choice again and would definitely recommend them. Thank you!

Do not book a wedding without these two wonderful people.
Do not book a wedding without these two wonderful people. Steve and Sandra are not only fantastic photographers but also a wealth of knowledge and support for anyone planning their special day. They helped to guide us through parts of the planning process drawing on their own considerable experience to help us make decisions around timings and locations, ensuring we had a part of the day in peace as man and wife. Without Steve and Sandra being at our house at an insanely early time and then getting to the venue like lightning we would have had a very dishevelled and cravat-less set of groomsmen! (Godsend!) On the day we felt less like we had a pair of photographers and more like we had two extra friends and guests with us, this enabled them to capture some of the most natural and relaxed parts of the day. Due to their extensive experience with our venue they were able to help us capture some of the most wonderful formal photos without making two very camera-shy people uncomfortable. All our family and friends loved having them around and we really do have so many cherished images of the day showing us all the moments we missed. Everyone who has seen our photos so far has been amazed at the quality of the photography along with Steve and Sandra’s ability to capture the most intimate and relaxed moments of the day. Since the wedding Steve and Sandra’s support and advice has not ceased even 6 months on, nothing has been too much trouble or inconvenience with these two wonderful people. To repeat ourselves do not get married without Steve and Sandra!!!

Best Photography Team!!!
SMH photographed our wedding at Owen House Wedding Barn in September 2017. They photographed my sister’s wedding 7 years ago and we had no hesitation when it came to booking them for our wedding (the first supplier we booked after the venue). Their communication was the best from any supplier we had, emails were answered at lightning speed which was refreshing when you have so much to coordinate always chasing suppliers for answers. Steve and Sandra photographed from the getting ready, through to the first dance. Several guests (especially the bridal party) commented on how lovely they both are and what a relaxed atmosphere they effortlessly create. They are excellent at the stealth photograph you don’t even notice they are there so they capture little moments you don't expect to see, which is a lovely surprise when you get to review the photos. The weather was pretty bad on the day (heavy rain almost all day) but they adapted and worked to ensure it didn't affect our day. Their enthusiasm and commitment for achieving great photos was undeniable with several things to contend with- due to the weather we had to stay inside which made logistics much harder trying to organise 110 noisy guests. Sandra in particular was quietly persistent making sure we were on track with timings in a careful, unobtrusive way was was very helpful when we had to make our excuses to get away from guests for our photos together. They hadn’t photographed the venue before and it was clear to see, at our planning meeting a few weeks before, that Steve was inspired and looking forward to the challenge. We had a couple of ideas we liked which he gladly made work on the day. Our concerns about not wanting to be too posed were really taken on board and we felt like the photos were really tailored to suit exactly what we wanted from our wedding photos. We were absolutely delighted with the (over 800!) photos when the time came to view them. The photos were on the website two weeks after the wedding, which was much speedier than we had expected. The website is great and very easy to use- the client area with passwords to access your album works well and being able to set up a profile and ‘favourite’ photos to narrow down for the album is invaluable. Now we need to try to narrow down from 200 to the 90 that can fit in the album- we expected this would be the case so went for the option to buy all images on a USB (which is beautifully presented in a branded SMH box!) which means we can keep them all and print more whenever we want to. Overall, Steve and Sandra’s professionalism never waived throughout the whole process, maintained constantly with a level of warmth and care that can be hard to come by in the wedding industry. We would recommend to anyone getting married in the future and we cannot wait to see our final album. Thanks so much Steve and Sandra.

Well what can I say about Steve and Sandra... #DREAMTEAM we possibly couldn't have asked for better photographers! They made sure our day ran smoothly as they met us on a few occasions and kept in contact on a regular basis to ensure they knew all the details and changes we had made/added to our day. We choose the full package and I thought it was reasonably priced as I had looked around and others were pricey and that was only for one photographer. On the day they came smartly dressed and on time prepared for the day. Steve and Sandra involved all guests on the day and were very friendly. Sandra was absolutely amazing and travelled 60 miles to pick my scarf up for the night due which I had forgotten. I would use smh in the future and would definitely recommend them. We went to pick our album from the studio which was well presented, our album and photos are TOP QAULITY!!! Truly amazing People.

Fantastic wedding day
Steve and Sandra were just brilliant helping our wedding run so smoothly, they are lovely people and fantastic photographers! They were so attentive and professional and made us feel very relaxed. Sandra's attention to detail meant we looked our best in all the photos and Steve's direction helped us get fantastic shot despite the weather. The photos were edited and given to us very quickly, we are delighted with them and can't wait to receive the album. I cannot recommend SMH photography enough!
