Both Lisa and Andy (pictures above) left a lovely review for me on a website !
Lisa’s words are below . . .
‘I can not recommend Alan Mason enough !. He is a lovely man who loves his work and wants to get the best pictures and produce the best album.
Our pictures and the album that Alan created are nothing short of amazing !
We booked two years in advance, and every time we contacted him before we got married, the responses were always enthusiastic and very quick.
He was full of amazing advice regarding pictures.
On the day itself, he was very friendly, worked like a complete trooper and was brilliant with my two young nieces (5 and 6). The pictures are really amazing.
While Alan is not the cheapest quote you will get, he is worth every single penny twice over.
If we ever need any professional photos again in studio etc, there is no doubt that we will look no further, and we would thoroughly love the opportunity to meet Alan again.’

The album is stunning. We cannot imagine a better record of ‘our event’ – it looks fantastic and really tells the story including our and our guests’ idiosyncrasies.

Needless to say, we are delighted that we had you as our photographer and will cherish the memories that you have preserved for us.

Fantastic photographer, fitted right in with our guests and captured some special moments.

Would and will highly recommend.

Thanks again,
Mark and Ellen.

What is a documentary wedding photographer ?
In its purest form, documentary wedding photography will give you a record of your wedding day
with nothing posed, nothing orchestrated – simply ‘telling things as they are’.

Whilst many couples initially explain that they’d like a documentary approach to their wedding photography,
they then explain that they’d  ‘also like some posed pictures’.

Is this O.K. ?

Some posed pictures are certainly O.K. !
I am happy to photograph your wedding in any way you choose !

So you can have a set of documentary pictures from your wedding,
and you can also bolt on a mini fashion shoot, showcasing your wedding dress if you wish.

And if your relations would really like a formal picture with Auntie Hilda or Uncle Ben . . .
That’s fine. I’m happy to do that . . . as long as it’s O.K. with you of course . . .
