Testimonials for Steve Hillman

Steve Hillman Wedding Photographer

Emma & Darren

We recently had the fine pleasure of Steve being the photographer for our wedding.

Having known Steve and his family for many years as good friends, my wife had seen first-hand the quality of his work and wanted no other to be the person to capture our day.

Steve's attention to detail was immaculate, his composition superb, and he has the rare abilities of being both personable but authoritative, and ever present yet non-intrusive. He was sensitive to the needs of our guests, yet still managed to persuade those less comfortable in front of a camera to participate; resulting in photos that even the naturally shy were delighted with.

All that is evident in the excellent photos that we received back which showed not just the primary focal points; the ceremony, group shots and breakfast, but also the finer details such as the beautiful gardens and architecture, which could so easily have been missed.

This all comes together in the final package and shows not just a collection of staged prints, but a story with warmth and feeling. He also created a photo slideshow to the music of the day and evening which was beautiful and will be appreciated often.

In short, we could not be happier with Steve and his work, and would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to anyone.

From day one there was no doubt that Steve was going to be our photographer...

We had seen work he had done and been guests at weddings he had photographed in the past, and had seen how amazing his work was. We have recently received our wedding pictures from Steve and he definatly did not disappoint! He has captured every detail and every emotion felt on the day, and watching the slide show was like reliving the day.

Steve is relaxed, professional, friendly and a lot of my guests have commented on how comfortable they felt around him. It was a pleasure to have him involved in our special day and he felt more like a guest. I would recommend Steve to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, the moments he captured will last forever. It's going to be impossible to pick only 150 pictures!

One word.....WOW!!!

When we booked our wedding & venue, our photographer was next as being the most important. I'm a very indecisive person and after looking into a few photographers including Steve himself. I still hadn't made up my mind which wasted precious time into getting the best... Steve! Boy am i lucky he was still available on the date we were getting married. And he never once failed to let us down on our wedding day.

A very dedicated, down to earth and hard working photographer who took pride in capturing the most perfect & precious moments and became part of our wedding party. I for one am so excited to see our wedding pictures as i know by seeing a few preview shots already he has certainly made our wedding day a day to remember and one we will always look back on. Thank you Steve Xxx

Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with, offering expert advice in the lead up to the wedding on great shots to capture, to the day itself where we hardly noticed him blending into the background, he managed to spot all the little moments he knew we'd cherish.

Taking the entire day in his stride & with a bridal party of 17 spread across the entire venue he managed to capture everyone!

Steve created a relaxed environment capturing beautiful natural shots, all of our guests commented how friendly he was throughout the day. We enjoyed spending time with Steve during the couple shots, a really nice guy! And then the pictures were delivered, and wow 714, and not one bad one. What amazing memories that will last a lifetime, the hard decision will come when filtering down to 150 for the album.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Steve, our only regret is we didn't book the evening reception to be photographed as we know the pictures would of been amazing

Well there was no doubt in our mind who was going to be our wedding photographer. So much so I've been reminding Steve for the past 12 years and we set the wedding date around Steve's availability. From the wedding meetings to the actual day and onwards Steve was amazing he captured everything how we wanted it to be done and more.

Guests commented on how good he was and how you didn't realise he was there. This shows in the photos that we have received they are absolutley amazing and capture the day perfectly. We watched the slideshow and the tears were flowing as we relived the day all over again. The quality and selection of photos is fantastic,the wedding day goes so fast but so many moments have been caught on camera that we can enjoy over and over again.

If i could give more than a 5 star review i would. Anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer look no futher than Steve. Precious memories from an amazing day captured perfectly. Thank you.

Well our wedding is over but all I can say is thanks to Steve Hillman for capturing all our special moments on the day.

From the moment he arrived I knew we were in good hands. The guests commented on how great he was. Nothing was too much trouble and some pics I didn't even knew he had taken until we got them back. Absolutely fantastic. We've sat and watched the slideshow over and over again and cried at how magical our photos are.

Just want to say a huge thank you Steve for all your work and for capturing all our special moments. You're a star!

Stacey & Matthew

From the moment we booked our wedding there was never any doubt in our mind who we would choose to be our wedding photographer. Steve made us both feel very at ease both before and on the big day. He understood our exact needs... and boy did he deliver!

Steve captured the best day of our lives.

When we received our DVD slideshow it was amazing to re-live and reminisce. I've already watched it so many times I've lost count and everytime it brings tears of joy and laughter!

We cannot express into words how thrilled we are with everything you have done and would highly recommend you! I have no idea how we are going to choose 150 photos for the album...we love them all!

Being someone who hates having my picture taken, I was in two minds whether to even have a wedding photographer, but I knew if we didn't we would regret it.

Having seen some of Steve's work and knowing what a nice guy he is, I was thrilled when he said he was available to photograph our wedding.

Right from the start Steve was really friendly and helpful, he made me feel very much at ease at the pre wedding meeting and understood what we wanted.

On the day he was truly amazing and made everyone feel at ease, even my very shy daughter warmed to him within minutes. I wanted our wedding to feel very relaxed and he just blended in with all the guests and had fun taking pictures of the kids outside.

The day soon flew by and before we knew it, it was all over. I was made up when Steve sent through a few pictures the next day to help me relive it.

In less than 2 weeks I had a message to say our pictures were ready and we couldn't wait to see them. We were not disappointed. Steve has captured some amazing memories and the pictures are so natural and relaxed which is just what I wanted.

It was mine and my wife's pleasure to have Steve as our wedding photographer. He made everyone feel relaxed on the day and was very approachable. Guests have commented on how nice Steve was and how good his photographs are.

Captured all our wedding moments and we are made up with his work. The hardest part is choosing the best ones for the album as they are all good.

A genuinely great bloke and a fantastic photographer, would recommend to anyone getting married.
