Wedding Photographer Review



Wedding photographer reviews are important to share, for you to read of these messages left by previous photographed couples that are just so warming! I get to meet and work with many amazing people, specifically, couples in love! Being there to photograph their family and friends at their most intermit moments, especially during their wedding day.  All of which is a fantastic pleasure and receiving and reading heartfelt words, a photographer review such as these is certainly what gets me out of bed every morning. Here are what some of the couples I’ve recently worked with had to say about me as their wedding photographer… Also seen on my Facebook page reviews.

Emma-Jayne & Mike - DeCourceys Manor


Emma-Jayne & Mike


I can’t give a higher recommendation for a wedding photographer than Lewis Fackrell – he is highly talented, very professional, extremely efficient and absolutely lovely! From the first enquiry I made, to receiving the last of our material, he has been a pleasure to “work” with. He shot our friend’s wedding last year and their pictures were amazing, and we saw how great he was even when we were guests, so we knew we wanted him to photograph ours!


During the planning process he was always more than happy to answer any questions or worries I had, and on the day, he was such a friendly face to have around! Everyone commented on how great he was, and no one felt that they were being followed round with a camera at all. Lewis went above and beyond throughout – scouting a stunning location for our portraits beforehand, and even sorting out the men’s corsages on the day! Our photos are incredible and I get butterflies every time I see them. They’re natural yet still artistic, and he captured some amazing moments that we will treasure forever! He got all our photos back to us so quickly, especially given that our wedding was during the busy summer period!


We could not be happier with Lewis’s service, or our photographs. I would highly recommend him to anyone – I’m so glad we booked him!

We first met lewis for our pre-wedding photo shoot. The three of us got on like a house on fire, with his down to earth and friendly approach. Lewis shows his passion for photography and his ability to make people feel relaxed in front of a camera upon meeting him.

Whilst planning the big day, lewis always kept in touch and kept us updated with ideas and the planning of the day. Day or night, lewis would reply to messages within minutes. This made us feel more relaxed and important.

On the big day, lewis was a very friendly face amongst a very busy house of bridesmaids and mums. He felt like apart of the family and joined in with conversations and laughter. He captured very special moments and was everything we were hoping in a photographer.

Our guests all commented on how much of a lovely guy lewis is, and how he is naturally likeable and insanely talented. We cannot thank lewis enough for the memories he captured on that day. Those memories and pictures we will cherish for the rest of our lives and we are so glad lewis was apart of that.

Carrie & Cliff – Photographer Review


Lewis was thorough and informative. The pre-wedding shoot was worth every minute not just for the additional pictures that he gave us but to relax us in front of the camera for the big day. The day itself he was full of confidence that put all at ease no more so as during the morning we were in a full-blown thunderstorm. I have no doubt this was a nightmare for him as well, rather than take this stance he remained upbeat and excited that the pictures would be moody and incredible. It certainly lifted our spirits and in turn, the clouds and the sun shone through! The album was presented in a lovely box and most importantly the pictures were amazing. We were totally thrilled. Thank you so much as we have pictures to treasure for life. I wouldn’t even hesitate booking Lewis again. I have no doubt that at some point in the future we will do just that for a family shoot.

“I’m not sure where to start with our review of Lewis, other than… he’s amazing! Lewis was informative and helpful from the start, and this continued during the whole process. After a skype talk myself and my now husband both came off and knew that Lewis was definitely the photographer we wanted! And more importantly, we knew we could trust him to deliver beautiful pictures of our big day.


Lewis is quite possibly the hardest working photographer ever. My guests and venue all commented on how lovely and accommodating he was on the wedding day, and many have asked for his details to pass on to family and friends getting married or for their own weddings… which I think says A LOT!Lewis, thank you for providing memories that we will cherish forever.

“Absolutely flawless. The most talented and unobtrusive photographer. I can’t recommend Lewis highly enough for capturing moments that we will have for the rest our lives. There were no long stints of time consuming group and individual photographs that would have interrupted our day but instead, a tasteful short time period and then we let Lewis take charge and capture natural moments (come rain or shine!). From start to finish the whole journey with Lewis was perfect.”

We were so thrilled with our wedding photos and the service we received from Lewis. From the pre-shoot to the wedding, Lewis created a lively, fun atmosphere and was very creative with his ideas.


He built a great rapport with our family and friends on the day and made them feel at ease. We were delighted to receive a beautiful presentation box with our photos at the end. Thank you Lewis!

Hannah & Gareth – Photographer Review


Lewis was amazing and we knew straight away that he understood us and exactly what we wanted. He made us feel so comfortable and we always knew we were in great hands. Our engagement pictures were great but nothing could have prepared us for how phenomenal our wedding pictures would be. We have the most beautiful images to remember such a fantastic day! Thank you so much Lewis – you nailed it! We can’t recommend Lewis enough!

The moment we met Lewis we knew we wanted him to be there capturing our day. We instantly built a rapport and talking about our wedding plans with him felt so natural – it was like having a coffee with an old friend!


In the run up to the pre-wedding photoshoot and the wedding itself, Lewis was always within easy reach of contact; always there to answer questions, keen to find out more about our plans and shared our excitement along the way.


Lewis’ photography style is perfect for what we were looking for – natural yet creative. He captured the love, laughter and details of our wedding absolutely perfectly. Every time we look through the online gallery it feels like we’re reliving the day all over again! We are absolutely thrilled.


Lewis is such a friendly, genuine, laid-back and warm guy with an incredible talent for what he does. It was such a pleasure to have him there with us on the day – honestly like a close friend or part of the family. We would book him again in a heartbeat!

Becky & Nick


To start off I just want to say how fantastic Lewis has been through the whole wedding process.

Offering advice and friendship from day one. Onto the photos, myself and the wife could not be happier with them! They truly capture the essence of the day, including all of the bits we missed!

Choosing the photos for the album is going to be a tough task! We could not recommend Lewis highly enough! So many of the guests have commented on how friendly Lewis was but also how professionally he conducted himself – at times you forgot he was there, which I’m sure is one of the key factors of wedding photography!

Lewis was one of our favourite suppliers to work with. He understood exactly what we wanted and kept in contact with ideas and questions. He was really approachable and made us feel completely at ease, even though we’re super awkward in front of the camera! Our wedding photography was one of the few things that I didn’t worry about as I knew it would be spot on! Book him!

We couldn’t be happier with our photos from Lewis, from the start he has been approachable, professional and really understood our desire for a natural feel to the photos.


At our pre-wedding shoot, not only did he manage to get us to relax in front of the camera, but he was also utterly brilliant with our slightly naughty dog, and captured some fantastic shots. On our wedding day, despite the best efforts of Storm Brian, not only did we manage to get brilliant group shots inside the venue but we also got the most phenomenal evening photos outside in the rain.


Lewis is laid-back and unobtrusive the photos of our guests are really natural as everyone was so at ease and the dance-floor shots really captured the fun of the evening reception. Looking back at the photos we are thrilled at how Lewis has really caught the feel and the emotion of the day.

His relaxed and friendly approach put us at ease immediately, and his photos captured our personalities perfectly. He is a totally awesome and down to earth guy, and we ended the shoot feeling like we had known Lewis for years!


Lewis was absolutely brilliant on our big day. He arrived early and mingled with our families and friends (who all absolutely loved him!), and spent some time getting to know the venue before the craziness began. Lewis always seemed to be there to capture every special moment, whilst blending into the background like an old friend. He was relaxed yet always professional, friendly, funny and a joy to be around. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer guy to follow us around all day!


We couldn’t be happier with the photos – they are absolutely beautiful – and we cannot give Lewis enough praise. He is such a talented guy and is clearly very proud of his work, and rightly so! He was an absolute pleasure to “work” with and nothing was ever too much trouble. Lewis always went above and beyond, and we honestly can’t recommend him enough!

“Highly recommend! Lewis is amazing and makes you feel so comfortable! The pre wedding photo shoot and the wedding party photos are beautiful! Our guests also loved him – we had so many comments saying how lovely he was! Nothing is too much trouble for him. Thank you Lewis!”

Lewis has been in contact since the moment we booked him. Such a nice, genuine, easy going guy that made the whole experience comfortable and enjoyable. Plus his work is outstanding.

Would highly recommend to others.

Eleanor & Chris - Miskin Manor wedding

“When we first met Lewis we instantly had a rapport with him that felt more like old friends catching up rather than a business transaction taking place. We sat and chatted about all things wedding, not just photography and listened to Lewis explain about how he worked and the natural aspect of his photography style….which is something both my bride and I were very keen on. We did meet with another photographer afterwards, but this just reaffirmed our belief that Lewis was the right guy for us. We arranged a pre-wedding shoot and Lewis took us off into the hills of South Wales where we were surrounded by fields of beautiful bluebells. Afterwards we headed to the coast as I was very keen on having some shots done on the beach. We had an incredible day and laughed so much. But it also helped us get used to Lewis directing us and posing when needed. When we got these shots through we couldn’t wait for the wedding to come round. The day of the wedding was incredible and Lewis managed to capture so many amazing moments, many of which we never even saw happening!! With his polite and affable nature he just put everyone at ease and even the normally stressful family photos went smoothly. He spent time talking to the guests in the evening and so many people spoke to us about just how nice he was. As I write this review we are sat at my In-laws house having just received our presentation box, reliving the day over again. I have to say there isn’t a single bad photograph. So many of them we have earmarked to have printed but it’s so nice that we don’t have to choose only so many….every shot is ours to keep. We both want to say thank you so much to Lewis for capturing our special day in such a beautiful way. Not only would we recommend him to anyone but we also got a new friend out of the experience.

We booked Lewis for our daughter’s small wedding, booking the half day package, we were very happy with every stage. Love the photos that we received.

Book lewis with confidence.
