Steve and Sandra are amazing! From our first meeting to collecting our album we received a professional but friendly service. With their years of experience they helped us arrange the timetable for the day and made it run smoothly. At one point on the wedding morning Sandra turned into our wedding planner when there were last minute glitches.
The photographs are amazing, they captured so much of the day and really captured our emotions. I highly recommend them!
My husband and I got married and Heaton House Farm on 22nd October 2017 and are so happy that we chose SMH Photography to capture our special day.
We first met Sandra at one of Heaton House Farm’s experience events. She was really friendly and we were impressed with the photos that we saw. After researching other photographers, we knew that SMH were the ones for us and booking them was really easy.
We met with Steve and Sandra at the venue a few weeks before the wedding to go over all of the details and discuss any particular family/group photos that we wanted taken. As they are one of Heaton House farms recommended suppliers, they knew the venue really well and suggested all the different places there that we could have some stunning shots taken.
The big day soon came round and they got to the venue bright and early, before we arrived, to get some photos of the ceremony and wedding breakfast rooms all decorated. During the entire day they were organised, professional and calm. We weren’t made to do any awkward poses. It was all very natural and made us feel very calm and relaxed.
Apart from when we were having the group shots and our photos taken, you wouldn’t have known they were there, they blended in to the wedding well.
Both were professional and charismatic. Steve going above and beyond to even get the children to smile during the bigger shots. Sandra even worked on her birthday and helped with my husband and best mans button holes and cravats. They worked with us to fit in some last minute group shots that we hadn’t planned for and worked well to get all the guests together for the confetti shots.
During the evening they were able to pull us aside for some quick evening shots with some beautiful sky backgrounds without interrupting the flow of the evening reception.
They braved the horrible cold weather and always had our best interests at heart.
We would absolutely recommend SMH Photography/Steve and Sandra to any couples planning their wedding.
A huge thank you once again. We can’t wait to see all of the finished photos – we know they’ll be amazing!

Where do I start, 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. We are delighted with the photographs and can't recommend them enough.
Firstly I must start by saying just wow, wow, wow I cannot even begin to explain how amazing Sandra and Steve are. From the moment we met with them we just knew we both wanted them to share in our special day, they were not the first photographers we met with but as with your husband or wife it's true what they say when they say you've met the right one. We cannot think of anybody better to have captured our special day. Sandra and Steve were so professional and attentive and captured all those must have shots we wanted as well as working with us to create some additional must have shots. They even went the extra mile to ensure our day ran perfectly by handing out confetti to guests who had forgotten theirs so they could join in the 'confetti shot' as well as helping with the buttonholes for the bridal party. As someone who is not traditionally at ease in front of a camera Sandra and Steve made us both feel completely relaxed and at ease. You truly became a part of our special day and we cannot wait to receive our photos in a few weeks time and relive the day all over again.
A huge thank you to Steve and Sandra for photographing my sister and brother in laws wedding on Thursday. I cannot thank you enough for your easy going and relaxed, yet professional and attentive attitude. You quickly became more than photographers and part of the wedding celebrations. I cannot wait to see the proof of the treasured moments I know you will have captured them beautifully! Thanks again!
What can we say... we cannot thank Sandra and Steve enough for being a part of our special day. They were made us feel so relaxed and at ease whilst making us laugh st the same time. They weren't bossy or intrusive but just slipped into the day like they were meant to be there. We couldn't have asked for better photographers and we are so excited to see the pictures. Just wish we could do it all again. Thank you for being so lovely. You are amazing xxxx
Absolutely loved having Sandra and Steve for our wedding photography and I couldn't recommend them highly enough! From the first meeting I knew instantly that I wanted them on our special day, they made me feel at ease with their relaxed manner and friendly personalities. On the day they were fantastic and lots of our guests commented on how great they were. The photos are absolutely incredible and done so quickly and they are just what we wanted!! � Perfect service and we can't thank you enough xxxxx
I don't know where to begin. Steve and Sandra are just amazing. Absolutely perfect. Thank you so much guys, you were the best. Lovely, lovely people and the best at your job. If we ever need professional photos again we will definitely come to you. Thank you! Xxx
Steve and Sandra are not only amazing photographers but lovely people too. They made us feel so relaxed and really added to our day. It was a pleasure to have them with us. We are totally blown away with the photos, it is hard to pick our favourites. (Also Sandra can tie and mean cravat)!!
Do not get married with out this couple.
We have just received our wedding album and parent albums from Steve and Sandra, and could not be happier with them. The images are incredible and give us the memories we wanted from the whole day. They were incredibly professional, thoughtful and a joy to work with from start to finish and could not recommend them more. Alice and Harry
We have just received our wedding album and all I can say is it is absolutely stunning!! I've never seen photographs like it, especially the stunning sunsets that Steve and Sandra managed to capture at the exact perfect moment on our wedding night. We are delighted to have found Steve and Sandra, they are just fantastic from the initial consultation all the way through to picking up the finished products. They really are so talented at what they do and work so hard to make sure everything is perfect. Super fast email replies to any queries, very calming on the day, and the photographs are just out of this world. We can't thank you enough Steve and Sandra! Jo and Tom xx
Steve and Sandra are fabulous wedding and family shoot photographers, so relaxed, amazing photos. Highly recommend.
Steve and Sandra photographed our wedding back in 2009 they were amazing at accommodating what was a slightly different wedding whilst still capturing so many special and treasured images. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants their perfect day to last forever! Laura and Michael xxx
Couldn't recommend Steve and Sandra higher! Such lovely people who made us feel relaxed and me like a princess! All of our wedding guests commented on how friendly and professional they were. They really focus on what you want out of your day and go the extra mile for example by learning everyone's name. They were not bossy or controlling and worked so hard all day. Thank you so much Steve and Sandra for everything - our day wouldn't have ran do smoothly without you!!!! Hannah and Graham

Steve and Sandra are not only 2 fantastic photographers, but 2 of the most lovely people you could ever meet! Not only are the images faultless, but the quality of customer service is wonderful and our couples can't stop raving about them!!
Honestly cannot put into words how truly amazing you both were both before and during our wedding on Saturday and so calming!!Gavin and I are both truly grateful for everything you did especially with the challenging weather conditions and when my sisters dress split open!!
We will never be able to thank you enough! So thankyou thankyou thankyou! Cannot wait to see the photos!! Love from Mr&Mrs Tomlinson xxx
"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.
"Thank you so much for the amazing photographs you have done for us. We enjoyed every minute of working with you. We are truly grateful for such personal service. You captured so many special moments so perfectly...The results of your efforts are spectacular and we can not recommend you highly enough.
Your amazing photographs left us speechless.They bring back all the emotions of the day, our laughter, tears and joy. Our wedding album is fantastic! We couldn't ask for anymore.
Thank you both so so much"
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.
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.
Words can’t describe how happy and overjoyed we are with our pictures and album, A huge thank you to you both for our amazing pictures and album; everyone has commented on how beautiful they all are and we are made up with them all!, not only are our pictures better than we could ever imagined, you were also amazing on the day and leading up to the big day!
We can’t thank you enough, we are truly grateful for everything you have done, always professional, very friendly and approachable, thank god we found you! We feel like we have made two friends for life, I’m sure you will be getting many of our friends and family bookings soon! any excuse we may fine to use a photographer again, you are number 1!
Thank you so so much!
We can only praise the service we received from SMH photography, run by Steve and Sandra. They were extremely professional yet personal throughout the entire process. Both Steve and Sandra are clearly highly skilled as photographers; our wedding pictures could not be more perfect (they especially managed to capture the stunning colors of the sunset and countryside, as well as delicately directing us to ensure that they obtained the best pictures of my wife and myself).
Steve and Sandra blended in perfectly with our day; while never being too intrusive, they were always willing to go beyond the role of photographers by helping with things such as button holes (Which none of the ushers knew how to do). Their calming influence was also very welcome for all those in the wedding party.
Both before and following the wedding we were well informed by Steve and Sandra, they were always trying to tailor things to exactly what we wanted. They ensured that we met in their studio for a pre-wedding shoot to get used to having our pictures taken, and at the venue itself to discuss where and when we would like photos. In addition, they were very prompt in making sure our wedding album was all ready and received in time for Christmas.
We could not rate SMH Photography more highly; there is no way we can think that they could improve their service and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone planning a wedding. Thank you Steve and Sandra.
Having reached an age where I thought it might be sensible to get some photos before deterioration completely sets in, I had to find someone who could put me at my ease to get some reasonable shots.
I am not comfortable being photographed at any time!
I couldn't have chosen any better - Steve and Sandra you are a brilliant team!
Not only did you put me at ease but you made the photo shoot FUN! GREAT FUN!!
Just to complete the wonderful experience I now have some of the best photographs ever taken of me.
I am thrilled, my family are thrilled...
You have done a fantastic job.
Thank you so much.
Valerie Ross a delighted client.
Steve and Sandra’s wedding photography is very unique and it is for this very reason that we chose them to be our wedding photographers. They bring something to pictures that nobody else does : feeling. I got a physical response from looking at our pictures (tears of joy)
We had so many amazing pictures from our wedding that we had trouble choosing which ones we wanted in our album and to frame!
If you are looking for a traditional wedding photographer - these are not your photographers. If you are looking for modern, fresh and unique and romantic photographs, SMH is the one. They are also very good fun to work with …that’s an added bonus!!
Steve and Sandra are an amazing team! They are such a pleasure to work with, and really 'add' to the couples days. The memories that they capture are amazing! You only have to look at their blog to see the quality that you will get for your money - it will be the best investment you will ever make!
From our very first meeting with Steve and Sandra we were very impressed by their professional yet friendly manner. On our wedding day they were unobtrusive, calm and fun. What Steve and Sandra provided went way beyond a service, as they ensured they captured every single precious moment. Our wedding album is amazing and it reflects the emotion and detail of the day exactly as we remember it. We have no hesitatation in recommending SMH Photography.
