We cannot thank Steve and Sandra enough for their outstanding work on our Wedding Day.  From the day that we met them to discuss our requirements they were professional, accommodating, reassuring and above all else friendly.  Needless to say we made completely the right choice to choose them as our photographers. 
They made us feel relaxed and comfortable at the Pre-Wedding shoot.  This was a great idea as it got us to feel comfortable for the cameras on the big day! 
The wedding day itself was superb and the images that they took were beautiful.  They both worked incredibly hard on the day and were professional throughout.  A number of our guests commented on how good they were. 
They were also a huge help to us when we were choosing the images and layout of our album too.  This was only difficult as there were so many fantastic images to choose from! 
We've now picked up our album from them and couldn't be happier!  They have captured not just the day itself, but the feel of the day as well.  It is absolutely stunning. 
We would highly recommend them to any of our friends and family for any professional photography.  They are absolutely outstanding at what they do and incredibly wonderful people to work with. 
Thank you both again so much for all of the lovely work you did and the time & effort you put into our special day so that we can treasure our pictures for the rest of our lives.

"Thanks so much for the superb Wedding album & pictures.
As an amateur photographer I spent ages deliberating over who should capture our big day, and I just wanted to say that I couldn't have hoped for any more; you both had a relaxed easy going manner from our first meeting, and you captured everything we asked for and more on the day, even when events didn't go to plan. Throughout our day we received so many lovely comments about how professional you both were, and everyone has loved our album.
Thanks Steve and Sandra"

"Steve and Sandra were excellent, a lovely couple, extremely friendly but above all real professionals. They made our day really special and the photo's that they took were of the highest standard. The photography package was excellent value for money and Steve and Sandra themselves were a delight to have around. Furthermore the service we received from them with designing the album after the wedding day was very much appreciated.
We could not fault the service we were given and would recommend them without reservation. 
Thanks for all your help and we may be in touch soon for family portraits" 
Alistair & Clare
"To say that we were over the moon with the service provided by Steve and Sandra is a complete understatement. They not only took the most beautiful photos that really captured the mood and atmosphere of our special day but their level of professionalism, attention to detail, and ability to blend in and make all of our guests feel at ease was second to none! We are proud to be surrounded by their work in our house as a perfect memory and document of an important and significant moment in our life. Thank you both very much!"
Danny & Paul
What a lovely surprise when we came home from our honeymoon to find our wedding photos disc had been delivered!! We absolutely love all the pictures!! They are so beautiful and you've managed to capture all the emotion of the day, we really couldn't be happier with them, Thank you so so much!! Its going to be so hard to pick which ones we want in the album as we love them all so much!! 
Thank you again for being so wonderful on the day, we'll be in touch soon. 
Many Thanks, 
Chloe & Adam  
Sandra & Steve made our wedding photography process so easy for us, from their first visit to discuss our requirements, right through to photography on the day and the pictures speak for themselves, they have produced an amazing album for us! Their friendly, efficient and professional service meant we had less to worry about along the way. Absolutely lovely people - a massive thank you from Mr & Mrs Lydon!

SMH photographed our wedding and we cannot recommend them highly enough. Steve and Sandra are great to work with and they did an outstanding job.
Our package included a pre-wedding shoot which really helped us get to know Steve and Sandra, both of whom were extremely patient and instantly put us at ease in front of the camera. The shots that came back from that day were absolutely fantastic. 
In the run up to our wedding they were very helpful in giving advice on coordinating the day and they went out of their way to accommodate our plans. On the wedding day itself they were able to capture the church ceremony in full whilst remaining discrete and then at our reception venue they were able to coordinate the shots we wanted, without impinging in any way on our special day. Both Steve and Sandra are great to get along with and they did a great job of integrating themselves and putting our guests at ease throughout the day.
Our wedding images were available to view online even before we got back from our honeymoon which was really lovely. The only downside was that there were so many images we loved it was almost impossible to choose which shots to have in our album. Steve and Sandra did a fantastic job of creating an album that captured the story of our day and they were always accommodating with any slight alterations we requested. The finished product is an album we are both delighted with and the additional smaller albums that came with our package made great gifts for our parents. We cannot thank Steve and Sandra enough for the great job they have done for us.
Ian & Lisa Lenehen
Hi Steve and Sandra, 
Just to say a massive thank you again for our beautiful album. We are both over the moon with it!! You really took on board the type of day we wanted and have captured our day perfectly. The pictures are so fun and natural. A huge thank you for being so brilliant on the day too. You were professional, in control and organised but at the same time so fun and friendly. This allowed the guests to relax and enjoy it and this really shows in the photos. Can't remember how many guests said how impressed they were with you both!!!
Sincere thanks 
Sharon and Lee
We couldn't of asked for a better couple to capture our special day! From planning our wedding and from start to finish of our day you were always so helpful and willing to take any shot!! Would recommend you to anyone!! And would definitely use you again for any other photo shoots!! Thank you!!!

From the first meeting we were really impressed with Steve and Sandra, not just their beautiful pictures and professionalism but their knowledge, ideas and friendly attitude. We feel out of all our wedding suppliers they were the most efficient and always got back to our queries quickly. They were worth every penny and more, the pictures and Album are beautiful and the small touches of the DVD, books for bridesmaids and parent books are gorgeous.
I would recommend them to anyone, we bought our sister a photo shoot and pictures as a Thank you present for her and her family and they had a fab time and got some gorgeous pictures too. 
I could go on, I cant speak highly enough of them from start to finish A* service.
Thank you so much!!!
Sophie & Ryan. 
We got married last year on the 2nd of June and it was the happiest day of our lives, but we must say that it was made even better by the work, effort and attention to detail that Steve and Sandra from SMH Photography gave to the day. The fact that there are 2 people taking pictures means that you get shots from different aspects, which we feel was amazing. We would recommend Steve and Sandra from SMH Photography to any of our friends and family, and would definitely commend them on their professionalism. They really did make our special day just that little bit more special.

We would just like to say a huge thank you to Steve and Sandra, we would recommend them to anybody, without hesitation!!!
SMH Photography are a professional team, that made us feel comfortable and confident in them from our first meeting in our home, 12 months before our Wedding Day. Many of our friends have had quite a lot of trouble with their Wedding Photographers, so we were a little worried.... However, SMH Photography could not have been more helpful throughout our wedding planning, on our actual wedding day and afterwards.
We feel so lucky to have booked them as our photographers. So many of our guests commented on their professionalism, but also the fact that they made everyone feel so comfortable. We would definitely recommend the Bellissimo wedding album and the DVD, stunning!!!!
A huge thank you once again
Zoe and Phil Macey
Dear SMH Photography (Steve and Sandra)
Thank you so much for photographing our wedding, you were fantastic.
You are both such nice people and we hardly noticed you there half the time. The photo album is wonderful and exactly what we wanted to tell the story of our wedding day. You were so accommodating to our needs and did everything the way we wanted it, we are so pleased that we choose SMH Photography to do our wedding.
Thank you
Debbie and Ben Machin
We just wanted to say a massive thank you we are so happy with all the pictures they are amazing! It is going to be a tough job trying to pick which ones we want for the album :)

"Steve and Sandra made sure that from the our first meeting we knew we were in professional and confident hands. At every stage leading to the wedding Steve and Sandra ensured we were making informed choices about our photo styles which helped us feel at ease on the day.
On the big day they were unobtrusive but made sure we got the shots we wanted. We lost count of the number of compliments from friends and family regarding Steve and Sandra's approach. The end product is amazing with precious moments captured for us to relive - stunning.
Thanks Steve and Sandra we hope to work with you both soon"
Mr and Mrs Tagg (Luke & Anna)
"We would like to thank you both for capturing our very special day so beautifully.You were professional in every way even when we were outside in the freezing cold, right though to our first dance. From the first time we met your guidance was appreciated, and on the day it was like having another couple of friends there! Everyone commented on your fantastic work and how un-intrusive you were throughout. This is why we will be seeing you again next year at our friends wedding.
Thanks once again!"

We all worked as team together to get our visions into their best quality photos. The end products were stunning & we couldn’t have asked for anything more! We have & will definitely use them again. Thank you so much for creating the perfect memories to our very special day.”
Wayne & Kat
"Steve & Sandra - you helped to create the best day of our lives.
We cannot express our thanks enough for the fabulous shots you caught on our wedding day. Everybody has commented on how relaxed the atmosphere was when being photographed which is down to your comfortable yet professional manner.
The album is wonderful and so different to others we have seen! We love the mix of shots and colours and having the online photos, cd and dvd makes it easy to share with family all over.
We will definitely be booking you to do some family shots in the future and would happily recommend anybody to book you also.
Thank you once again"
Richard & Donna
Would just like to say a special thanks to Steve & Sandra for doing an amazing job on our wedding day. From the first time we met them they were so friendly and helpful. They explained everything in detail to us which put us at ease as to how the day would pan out. On our wedding day itself they were so professional and thorough and we are absolutely delighted with the photos that they have taken. Even our guests have commented since saying how professional they thought our photographers were. They have captured every aspect of the entire day which will give us great memories for the rest of our lives. All in all a fantastic couple and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thanks so much!
David & Louise
Having decided to get married in Cheshire, yet living down in Berkshire, we needed a wedding photographer we could trust and felt completely at ease with.  From the first conversation I had with Steve over the phone, right the way through the planning, the wedding day itself, to the creation of our wedding album, the service was absolutely first class.  They were extremely patient and flexible in making sure that we were completely happy with everything, including how the layout and content of the wedding album was presented, and as such we've got a wonderful collection of photos from our special day.  Everyone we've shown the photos to has commented on both the fantastic quality and the vivid colours captured.  Both Steve and Sandra were the perfect wedding photographers - very professional, yet they weren't intrusive or bossy, and just blended in making everyone feel relaxed.  They were also brilliant with the children, who we've got some very smiley pictures of!  We wouldn't hesitate in recommending SMH Photography.

My husband and I knew that the memories and photo's from our big day would be something to treasure forever and as such we couldn't have been more impressed with the service provided by Steve and Sandra at SMH Photography. They are professional, fun to work with, imaginative and most important provide a quality of photograph and album that makes us want to look at them over and over again! We will definitely use them again for any professional photo's we want.

The photos are absolutely amazing, we couldn't be happier with them. Jenny must have sat through the DVD at least 15 times already!! The feedback we've got from everyone looking at them has been the same too, just stunning. 
We really weren't surprised though, you guys have been nothing but brilliant from the first time we met. You were head and shoulders above any other company we dealt with for the wedding. The level of care, the level of contact and the professionalism throughout was beyond our expectations. We're really looking forward to seeing the photo album when it's completed, although it's a nightmare choosing which pictures to include, we love them all!! 
As you would have seen at the wedding, we've got loads of couples in our friendship group, most of whom will be getting married over the next few years. I will be recommending you guys to each one of them.
Will & Jenny 
We would like to say a massive thank you for being so great, understanding, organised and such a good laugh. You were both wonderful and very professional. After we met at our house we knew you would do a great job. We really enjoyed you doing the photography and being around the whole day, blending into the background when appropriate and running the show when you could! Belle Époque commented on how good you were and I hope you took my advice and left your contact details for them to recommend you to future weddings.
We will definitely be using you in the future for other photographic requirements, both personally and work based.
David & Kat Holdcroft
SMH Photography are a breath of fresh air - we were absolutely delighted (and relieved) to find SMH Photography. Steve and Sandra are brilliant... punctual, well organised and faultlessly professionals, they immediately put us at ease. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Their happy and considered approach gained countless compliments from all our guests. We would have been happy with this, but the photographs taken where also absolutely superb! We have hundreds of amazing photographs and enjoyed every minute. You do not realise how crucial the photographer is until its your wedding day and Steve & Sandra made our day unfold brilliantly. Wonderful photographers, people and wedding guests in every respect - we thoroughly recommend Steve & Sandra.

Hi Steve & Sandra,
We've just spent a very happy hour looking through the pictures, some amazing shots, we can't thank you enough.
Once again, thank you for the totally professional and utterly superb service on the day - you made us smile and laugh all day long and really brought out the best in everyone for every photo you took. It's these amazing pictures that will remind of us what a special day it was for the rest of our lives.
Thank you.
Rob & Kerry Sanderson
Dear Steve & Sandra
Where do I begin to Thank You for your contribution to our day.
Our initial meeting was a positive one. We never had any doubt about the service we would receive. However you more than lived up to our expectations.
You made us instantly at ease with the camera and yourselves. We had many comments about how unobtrusive you were. Yet for Paul and myself, we felt like we’d known you for ages and you were a member of the wedding. It was fabulous that we could talk at ease and share a laugh.
And it’s a credit to you both how well you worked as a team. You were not only professional but due to your relationship as husband and wife, you conveyed an understanding that is unique only to you. You should be very proud of the service you deliver.
Kindest regards
Mr & Mrs Connah

"We would like to say a massive thank you for being such wonderful and professional photographers on our wedding day. From the moment we met at our house we felt comfortable, and confident that you would be superb photographers. We could immediately tell that you both had a special bond together which works perfect for wedding photography!
My guests commented on how professional and unobtrusive you both were and how wonderful you both worked as a team to get the shots we required and also the relaxed shots that were just fab!! From the moment you both arrived whilst we were getting ready was also fun....our new saying when taking pictures is...."HAPPY! HAPPY! HAPPY!" thanks to you guys!!
Our DVD slideshow is just beautiful and I cannot believe how many pictures we have obtained from the day, of which every single one is stunning. Its just how do we decide to make an album from all those photos, as its so so difficult to choose from such a wide variety?!
Once again thank you both ever so much and we cannot sing your praises high enough. You will definitely be recommended to family and friends.
Kind Regards"
Mr & Mrs Hutchinson (Peter & Sarah)
"The album is so lovely, I just wanted to look through again and again! I wish I could keep it for myself!.

"Thank you Steve and Sandra for your hard work and creativity. Choosing you to be our wedding photographers was the best decision we made for our wedding day. You captured the day so beautifully and professionally. You made us feel at ease from the off with our engagement shoot and throughout our wedding day. All of our wedding guests commented on how unobtrusive and professional you were. Our final story book album is amazing and is exactly what we wanted, It is by far the best wedding album that we, or any of our friends, have ever seen. You both have a natural ability for this type of work and we wish you lots of success for the future.
Thank you again for your hard work"

Everyone at the wedding commented on what an excellent job they did, they made the normal 'endless photograph section' very relaxed and enjoyable for all involved. Since seeing the album all of our friends and family share our views and are really impressed with the end results.
We have so many absolutely perfect pictures to remember our special day and cant stop playing the DVD slideshow of the day. We are very happy to highly recommend Steve and Sandra, they are a lovely couple and photographers of the very highest standard.
Thanks again to both of you"

At our pre-wedding shoot and on the wedding day itself you were professional, friendly and unobtrusive and you made us feel at ease in front of the camera.

We received our wedding album this morning and it took our breath away it is beyond beautiful and about a million times better than we ever thought any person could create. 
You captured our day down to perfection and I cried watching it unfold again in front of my eyes in pictures.
You became part of our wedding and made us feel so comfortable that at times we forgot you was our photographers and just guests we had invited. 
Thank you so much I would recommend you to anybody getting married your both amazing, you don't just create photos you create memories and magic. 
Thank you 
Chloe & Lewis
From the moment we first met Steve and Sandra we knew we'd found the perfect photographers for our special day. Their friendly, relaxed approach teamed with clear professionalism made us and our guests feel at ease throughout the whole day. And we are so thankful for the beautiful album that Steve and Sandra spent time creating with us, it allows us to remember our wedding day perfectly for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much!
Sam and Elaine Benyon. 
From the moment we met Steve & Sandra we knew that we wanted them to be part of our special day.  From the off they were extremely professional and listened to what we wanted to ensure the final product was tailored to our needs.  The pre-wedding shoot was great fun, neither of us are fond of the camera but by the end of it we both happy with being photographed.  When we met at our venue just prior to the wedding it was great to see that they had both done their homework on the venue and had some great ideas for our pictures. On the day the service provided by both Steve and Sandra was above and beyond our expectations.  Many of our guests have commented just how patient, polite and professional they both were.  Our page boy being in his terrible twos did not phase Steve when taking the main shots, he was able to catch the moment when necessary with Sandra getting some great natural shots.  Both of us are delighted with our final album, the quality and detail within is amazing.  We have a fabulous album that we will cherish for many years to come.  We highly recommend SMH photography and will definitely be using them again for family photo shoots in the future.
