Wedding Photographer recommendations
I am lucky and privileged to have taken part in so many peoples’ big days. It’s even better when people share their thoughts, and below is a selection of just some of these.
Sue & Andy
After much research for the correct wedding photography, we found Tom, and we knew right from the first meeting that he made us feel relaxed and confident that our wedding was very special and individual to our needs. On the day Tom and Martin knew what we wanted and fitted into the wedding group unobtrusively. They spent the day relentlessly taking pictures, all through the day and evening.
The wedding might have finished but Tom still worked hard to ensure the wedding album was just as we wanted, which turned out to be outstanding and impressed everyone we show. Tom made us feel special on the day and we will never forget him and Martin when we look at our album and we would highly recommend him to anyone who ask us, and have done so already.
Amy & Simon
We first come across Tom when we had a list of recommendations from our reception venue at Kersey Mill. We looked at his website and checked out his portfolio and liked what we saw. We met up with Tom and he showed us some more examples of his work and what our potential wedding album could look like which was our deciding point to pursue and use him to photograph our special day. We then had our pre-wedding photo shoot which was great, neither of us particularly likes our photo being taken, however Tom made us feel comfortable and at ease and even threw in some bonus entertainment. On our wedding day Tom and Martin did a fantastic job of capturing every moment and took amazing pictures. Tom put together a prototype of our album which really done his work justice. It’s lovely to look through now and it really does show how our day went from start to finish. A massive Thank You Tom for your talented, hard work and professionalism.

As soon as we met Tom we immediately felt confident that we had chosen the right photographer for our special day. He was enthusiastic and so obviously passionate about his work that we knew he would create the perfect photos for us. We loved the fact that the service included two photographers and an engagement shoot. It was great to spend a few hours with Tom to get an idea of his photography style and just for us to get used to being photographed. On the day Tom and Martin completely blended in with our guests and were completely unobtrusive. We are absolutely delighted with all the photos we received from Tom; he captured every detail perfectly and they are stunning. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tom Needham Photography. Thank you again Tom for the beautiful memories of our wedding day.

Tom was recommended to us by a good friend, and from our first meeting it was clear to see why! Tom is extremely passionate about what he does! On the big day Tom arrived exactly when he said he would and Martin was with my husband. It was fantastic to know that Tom was getting all my bridal details shots (dress, shoes, flowers etc) without me having to get things for him or tell him where bits were- he just got on with it and liaised with my bridesmaids if he needed anything. Tom and Martin were amazing at fitting in and around the guests taking gorgeous natural shots of hugs and laughing and kisses without anyone knowing they were being taken, and they are just beautiful and so natural! As well as being fantastic photographers Tom and Martin are both just genuinely lovely people! They were a pleasure to have at our big day! And I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants a beautiful collection of photos and memories of their big day!
Natalie & Mike
Amazing photographer and an amazing guy. Really prepared well before the wedding, with several meetings and discussions, including a pre wedding meet up and photo shoot all included in the price. Excellent on the day, really worked well with videographers and venue etc. Would highly recommend! Thank you Tom!
Kirsty & Tom
After researching wedding photographers we found Tom Needham, and we were won over by his outstanding work displayed online. He came to our home for an initial meeting explaining his services and showcased a fantastic portfolio. From this house visit you could see Tom’s strong passion for photography which made us feel that he cared about our big day. We loved the impression Tom gave us that our wedding shoot wasn’t just another job, it was much more than that. Tom also knew our venue very well and so along that knowledge, his skills, professionalism, passion and himself being a true gentleman, it was a total no brainer to go with Tom and his assistant to capture our wedding as we felt so confident with them.
They both blended in with our day and felt like guests that ultimately lead to a beautiful mix of natural images, which won us an award for ‘Essex Wedding of the Year 2014’ thanks to Tom’s work. We then received our beautiful, hand bound and customised albums shortly after, which we’ll cherish forever.
We both highly recommend Tom and already have to friends and family alike.
Stacy & Darren
Tom Needham Photography was recommended to us by some close friends that had used him for their wedding and from start to finish Tom and his team made us feel at ease. Our decision to pick him to photograph our wedding was fully justified as he worked around us on the day which was perfect and kept a relaxed atmosphere with all our guests. We have had non-stop compliments about our album and now we need to give guests prints as they liked the photos so much! Thank you!
Katie & Ben
From the very first reassuring phone call to our first meeting Tom made us feel confident and at ease that he could provide and deliver the exemplary service and details that he offered. You will always worry that your big day won’t be documented and captured in the right way or maybe an opportunity is missed but right up to our wedding all we felt was confidence that we had been lucky enough to have Tom on our side.
He made sure with his excellent colleague that all the right settings for photos and different arrangements were handled flawlessly. We even got to have a selection of our photos displayed after the breakfast which everyone enjoyed. Tom knew we were keen to view our pictures and the turn around to have our pictures was once again impressive considering the work he puts in to make sure every individual photo is perfect.
If you ever have a need for a professional to assist you with weddings or functions you will do yourselves a disservice by not contacting our friend Tom.
Amy & Alberto
Choosing a photographer for our wedding was one of the most difficult decisions when it came to organizing the most important day of our lives. We kept looking at different websites and kept being told to make sure we chose a “good one”! We happened to stumble across Tom´s website, looked at some of the photos on there and on his Facebook page, and decided to go and meet him. From the very beginning he was very professional and enthusiastic.
He showed us his previous work, and made us feel that he would capture those special moments just as we wanted. He also discussed our wedding plans in detail, helping him understand the key people and moments of our day. The pre-wedding shoot was fabulous and made us feel at ease in front of the camera for the big day, and having a second photographer on the day assured us that everything was going to be captured. And the results have been truly outstanding. We absolutely love the photos, each one of them being unique and special. After getting married, we now realize that these photos are the most important memories of our wedding day, and we couldn´t thank Tom enough for his hard work. We cannot recommend him enough!
Thank you Tom. If I had to choose another photographer again, I would, without hesitation, choose you.
Charlotte & Darren
Tom and his assistant Martin played a huge part in our wedding day. They captured some amazing moments which resulted in fantastic images we will treasure. Tom has been very patient while we choose our final proof for our wedding album and was always willing to help. We love the album and are amazed at the quality. Thank you so much for your top quality services. We highly recommend their services for a wedding day to remember!
Lauren and Stephen
From our very first meeting, Tom filled us with every confidence that he was going to do a great job in capturing our day. We knew he shared our view of how we wanted our day captured and he went through all the details and prices thoroughly.
We were offered a free engagement shoot where Tom took some fantastic shots which gave us the confirmation that his style was what we were looking for and gave us some first hand indication of how the photographs would come out. It also helped put us at ease in front of the lens, which was quite daunting to us initially.
On the day of our wedding Tom and his colleague were fantastic. They captured every moment of our day unobtrusively. When it came to the group shots Tom was very well organised and efficient in getting everyone where they needed to be. Many of our guest commented on their approach and relaxed manner to the formalities.
We are absolutely blown away by the quality of the finished Wedding Book. Tom has completely captured our day from start to finish and has beautifully and skillfully edited and designed our Book to the finest quality.
Thank you Tom for your talent, professionalism and patience and for giving us such a wonderful memoir of our Wedding Day.
We would definitely recommend Tom Needham Photography
Precious and Timi
Thanks to Tom and his team for delivering far beyond our expectations. His professionalism before and on the day was outstanding. Any shot we wanted…. Tom made it happen and he also had amazing passion, creativity and experience to create wonderful images. We wanted our album to be perfect, timeless and classy and Tom delivered on every level. Complete value for money, would recommend Tom to all. You will not regret it!
Sam & James
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for bringing the memories of our wedding alive in our album! You got all the shots we had requested and we couldn’t be any happier with how the day turned out. A special mention to how personal you have made it especially coming to you and seeing the little extras you had done!
It really means a lot to have such a beautiful album to look back on for many years to come thank you for all the hard work you put in to this
Alessandra and Darren
We would like to thank Tom and his team for photographing our wedding. They took some amazing pictures and our album tells the perfect story of our special day. The album is printed in such a beautiful way coupled with a fantastic DVD of the album with heart warming music in the background. Tom took so much care in liasing with us to complete our album and to ensure we were completely happy with the final draft. Thank you so much for all your hard work and efforts, we will never forget
Beth & Stuart
We decided to book Tom as our wedding photographer as he offered two photographers and a single price for the entire day. Tom was very flexible both before and during the wedding day and worked well with us and all of our guests.
All in all Tom offered a very professional service and the excellent quality of the photographs and albums that we have are due to his talent. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone.
