Here are a few of the things people have said about my wedding photos and the service I provide on the wedding day.
"Jason was brilliant from the moment we met him through to the work he did for us on our wedding day. He took time to discuss exactly what we wanted in detail and carried it out to the letter on the day itself. Many guests commented positively on both his work and the unintrusive courtesy with which he conducted himself throughout. The quality of his photography was also outstanding. We would not hesitate to recommend Jason to anybody looking for a photographer. We can't fault anything he did for us. Thank you so much J!"
"I would have no hesitation whatsoever about recommending Jason. Jason photographed our wedding on Friday he was a really calming influence which really helped! He understood what we wanted and he went above and beyond, he's very well organised and very well prepared. From our first consultation with Jason we felt very assured. He had so many fantastic ideas for where to take photos for the day, so we made the necessary arrangements to put everything in place and we were so happy we did. Our photos came back today and we are stunned, they're way beyond what we could have hoped for. Just have a look at Jason's portfolio and have a chat with him and you'll see. He's a treasure."
"Fantastic wedding photographer. Me and my partner are probably two of the least creative people you could meet, so it was great for Jason to come up with loads of ideas for brilliant shots which came out beautifully. Would highly recommend Jason to anyone preparing for a wedding."
"Having Jason be our wedding photographer was the best decision since saying yes to marrying my fiancé Daniel! Jason invited us over for a cuppa and a chat as our initial meeting about our wedding day and we were able to discuss our plans for the day. At this stage we didn't know what we wanted so Jason helped us to understand his style of photography and what he felt may work for us. He took time to understand our personalities in this meeting and from that he worked out how best to photograph us on the day.
During the chaos of planning a wedding and dealing with many different vendors, Jason's professionalism was so refreshing. He was clear and very organised in his emails which helped us to organise ourselves.
When the wonderful wedding day arrived Jason was at the church early catching natural pictures of our friends and family arriving to the church and of the wedding party who were inside preparing. When I arrived to the church he was outside the church taking (what are now, some of my favourite) pictures that captured my excitement and I remember that he spoke some really reassuring words that made me even more happy as if that were possible!
He is great at setting you at ease, being discreet and subtle but also letting you know if he has a spontaneous idea, like "I've just noticed there is a great sunset outside".. Our guests who got to chat with him through the day all commented on what a lovely guy he is. We have so many awesome pictures of us, our friends and our family's having fun, he captured the theme of the day, which was love, joy and gratefulness so perfectly.
I first met Jason in the sea as myself and Daniel and Jason are all surfers. Daniel and I got engaged at 'fields' the surf break by Compton Bay, we discussed having some photos on our wedding day at Compton. In my mind I just assumed we would be somewhere on the grass with a nice view of the surf/sea. When we arrived we were met by Jason and his idea of 'follow me there's a great sky and a fantastic patch of wet sand!'. I was surprised and a bit unsure of how this would work as my wedding dress had a long train but we went with him, deciding that 'hey ho, a dress can always be dry cleaned and we only get this day once.' We went down to the beach, he lent me his hoody as it was a bit of a cold and blowy October afternoon (thanks Jason!). He took some pictures of just me, and then some of Bride and Groom on the wet sand and then spontaneously asked a guy on the beach if we could borrow his SUP board, so we jumped on it and posed for some photos! The beach photographs have come out great and are so much fun! His eye to notice that the reflection of the stormy sky with some sun coming through on the wet sand proved to surpass our inexperienced thought of us standing on the cliff somewhere thankfully!!
We are so glad we said yes to trusting his creativity and experience. We can't recommend Jason's photography highly enough, we have these awesome pictures to remind us of what a joyous day it was. Massive thanks Jason."
"Jason was professional and friendly at all times. His pictures were fabulous and we both are very pleased."
"Thank you Jason, you have been a fantastic wedding photographer! Whilst planning the wedding we had many changes of plan and nothing was too much trouble for Jason, who was happy to help us with some wise words of advice from his experience of previous IoW weddings. On the day he instantly put us at ease and his relaxed and unobtrusive style meant that, of all the things you do have to think about at a wedding, the photos was not one of them. We love the results, there are so many that we want to print! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend! Thanks again! Matt & Laura."
"There's some lovely shots of our wedding day, too many to mention but I really love the ones of Alan and I on the bench at Freshwater Bay. And of course Freshwater looks stunning and it's so nice to see the 'natural' photos of everyone at 'The Piano' too. Thank you for being a part of it and for being so unobtrusive and so easy to work with. I hate having my photo taken but I didn't seem to mind on Saturday. You made it stress free."
"Can't thank Jason enough for capturing the magic of our wedding day. We are delighted with the pictures and it's a testament to him how relaxed we, and our guests, appear in all the pics. Glad he was there to share our day. Highly recommended."
"We chose Jason as our wedding photographer as I had worked with him before for work and knew he was fantastic. We met Jason before the wedding to chat through our day and the sort of things we wanted...he then created this perfectly on the day. We didn't have long lists of people we wanting photographing as we just wanted everyone to enjoy the day and be photographed doing so. Jason was the perfect chilled guy to do this! We hardly knew Jason was there at all (not that it would have mattered if we did as he's a cool guy!) but it really didn't seem like we were posing for photos. Jason captured every part of the day perfectly. When we looked through our photos (which came back to us within days of the wedding), we couldn't believe how he'd managed to capture everything, from the people laughing when they were being talked about in the speeches to my nephew pulling funny faces at us in the church. He really has done the most amazing job and we couldn't be happier with the photos. When we sent the link to friends and family, they all said how great and natural they were. We can't thank you enough Jason and we would whole heartedly recommend you as both a wedding photographer and landscape photographer :)"
"There was no question that this was ever going to be anything other than a 5* review for this talented chap who has captured our special wedding day beautifully. We have both known about Jason's work for many years now and, given that memories of the day will last a lifetime, we figured his work would gives us images to last forever too. We weren't disappointed. Blending in so we never felt uneasy or hindered by his presence Jason has blessed us with images that perfectly capture the spirit and feel of our wedding day, from the sacred surroundings of the church, through intimate moments captured so gently right through to the party atmosphere of the evening. The guy has the technical knowledge to achieve the beautiful pictures that his creative mind captures and we really couldn't be happier. Everything felt so natural and he put us at ease during our initial consultation right through to the delivery of our images. Think carefully about your wedding photographer as this is the person you trust with the most important day of your life and they should provide you with images you'll want to look at again and again to relive the magic of a day that goes so quickly. Jason did this perfectly for us and if you want fantastic images and peace of mind then we'd suggest you choose him too."
"Jason was our photographer at our wedding last year and was fantastic. We were quite fussy about the type of person that we wanted and the type of images that we were hoping for. He blended into the crowd so that you were unaware of his presence, and that showed in the natural photos that we got that told the story of our wedding day brilliantly. Jason has a great ability to capture those moments that the children created so that we now have some great memories of that day, and the ones that we didn't get to see.His relaxed and flexible manner meant that we were able to feel it was in hand and enjoy the day even more and I would strongly recommend using him for any event."
"Jason is very talented photographer. Myself and Natasha realised this very earlier on as he made us feel at ease and had some great ideas on how to go about shooting our wedding. When we got our photos back everyone was blown away with how well he captured the day as his picture taking timings were on point, which for me is really important. He capture all those special moments as they happened!"
"We are so pleased with the photos that Jason took of our wedding! We wanted to avoid anything cheesy or forced and the ones that he took are just what we'd hoped for. He utilised the lovely surroundings, taking some photos on the beach and in a field of poppies that Jason had spotted. He also managed to capture some fantastic relaxed, fun shots of our guests without being intrusive. Jason was also super speedy in giving us all the photos, we saw them just 2 days later! We've shown friends and family and have lots of comments about what great photos he took. Thanks again Jason!"
"Having worked with Jason commercially in the past I already knew his photography was of the highest standard so it was an easy decision to ask him to be our wedding photographer when we decided to get married. His attention to detail in the planning was hugely reassuring as a bride to be, and we were even able to include some creative shooting in unusual locations at our venue which was great fun and provided awesome shots that will make us smile until we are old and grey. The images are beautiful, he has captured the essence of the day with natural light and the relaxed feel we were looking for. So many guests commented on or after the day how lovely our photographer was, Jason truly became part of the day and made everyone feel at ease because he's a really nice man! To top it all off... Jason managed to get our photos ready for us before we flew on honeymoon, so we were able to sit at the airport 48 hours later reliving every moment while it was fresh in our minds. We can not recommend him highly enough."
"Jason did our wedding photos, August 2014, and we highly recommend him! Not only did we LOVE our photos, we were so grateful to have such a friendly, relaxed and professional photographer on the day! We had quite a large number of wedding guests (both of us having large family circles) so we wanted the day to be fun, traditional and focussed around the celebration of marriage and people- and Jason's pictures capture and reflect exactly that. Jason captured everybody in a mixture of natural and some posed shots as requested, but all of the images showcase the best memories of the day, as well as covering brilliant 'caught on camera' moments that we could enjoy afterwards. By the end of the day, we felt as if Jason was a part of our wedding guests, which just meant we could feel so comfortable and relaxed the entire time knowing those treasured photos were being taken by trustworthy hands!"
"Jason immediately put us at ease and gave us we wanted for our from our photos ...Fun! He captured the day perfectly, providing some great shots of us and our guests and of course making use of the wonderful surroundings at Northwood. Jason blended in so well that we rarely knew he was there getting pictures that really got the mood of the day. He was very professional in every way and would definitely recommend him to any one for their wedding or any other event."
"Jason took the photographs for my wedding last May. I knew the photographs would be lovely and exactly what my husband and I wanted, a combination of formal shots and also many informal ones capturing so many special moments in the day. Jason was the perfect person to have with you on the day, so calm, reassuring and patient. Thank you Jason for all your help and wonderful photographs."
"Thank you so much for all of your work on Saturday. We had an incredible day and you were a big part of that by being so relaxed and friendly with everyone (and keeping us calm where necessary!) and in getting such great pictures. We're delighted that we've got such an amazing collection of photos now to remember the day and we're really excited to share them with everyone. You've captured some of the guests brilliantly too and everyone looks like they were having a great time."
Thanks again too for both staying a little later than expected when our schedule slipped and for turning round these first pictures so quickly. It was lovely to get them through when everything was all so fresh in our minds. We're really happy with how everything came together."
"WOW! Some of these are amazing! Thank you so much! We got back last night, opened a bottle of fizz and enjoyed looking through them - there are some wonderful shots. You were really great, and managed to capture some fantastic moments and characters! I am looking forward to getting home already so we can start to build a 'favourites' album - its going to be so hard to choose! We had the most AMAZING day ever! Thanks again for everything - it was great having you as part of our big day!"
"Can't thank you enough, absolutely lovely photos. Lots have made us laugh and everyone at home loves them. They really capture the day. Perfect!"
"Thank you so much for all our beautiful wedding photographs! we love them and are so pleased we chose you! We had such an amazing day and are so thrilled you were there to capture it all"
Jason was fantastic at our wedding! He captured all the key moments on the day and many more that we just would have missed without him. I can't praise him enough, We would highly recommend Jason as a photographer for your wedding. We loved the calm, relaxed and professional approach to his work. He has a natural style that puts everyone at ease and that makes for some great creative photographs. I would definitely recommend Jason to anyone wanting creative and fun photos of their big day.
Jason was one of the photographers at our wedding last year. The photos he took were fantastic and have captured our wonderful memories of the day. He's got a great professional manner and I would recommend him to anybody looking for a photographer on the Isle of Wight and elsewhere.
"Huge smiles all around... you sure captured the essence of a wedding here Jason... bride and groom on the happiest day of their life"

* Please note: I can and do supply wedding books, and prints and canvases to the highest professional quality, but the range of sizes and finishes is so varied it would limit your choice to try and accommodate all the options within a simple pricing structure. I've found that the best approach is for us to have a brief discussion of your requirements, and i can provide a quotation to suit.
