Matt and Andrew 2019

From the moment we met Sam he instantly puts you at ease, Sam is very professional and you dont even know he is there. The quality of his work is outstanding and he has captured parts of our big day that we missed. He was very laidback and timing was not an issue and made all of our guests feel very relaxed. His natural shots were unbelievable and he loved the fact we had a dog at our wedding too, got some amazing shots of our dog (woody) which is not easy. Been an absolute pleasure meeting you Sam thank you so much for capturing our big day All the best Matt & Andrew Mr&Mr ashworth

Sam made my wedding registration such a memorable day. For my husband and I, along with all our guests, everyone enjoyed themselves and love the photographs. Sam is such an amazing person and a very very talented photographer. I cannot thank him enough for his time and effort to make this day special for us all. Thank you x

Every picture tells a story We were lucky enough to have Sam be our Photographer at our wedding in October 2018. Right from day 1 he was great, and put us at ease straight away. He was very professional, informative and took great pride in his work. The day of the actual wedding Sam just never seemed to stop. Yet he was never in the way and seemed to effortlessly move around everyone without them ever really knowing he was there. The pictures were back with us in less than 2 weeks, over 800 beautiful shots in total. And all we can say is "stunning", the colours and quality of his work is amazing. We are over the moon with it all, and I guarantee his prices won't be beaten anywhere. We wouldn't hesitate to recomend him to anyone. So glad we picked him. Thank you Sam Mr & Mrs Matthews x

Sam did my wedding on the 12th May 2018. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. With only meeting Sam a week before my wedding due to changing last minute I was unsure what to expect. I instantly felt at ease with him, and he kindly accepted to do our wedding at short notice. On the day everyone complimented on how nice of a guy he was, having a laugh and socialising with our guests. I didn't know he was taking pictures half the time! Thats how good he is. We recieved our wedding pictures back and we are so overwhelmed and amazed by them. They are more then what we could have asked for. Capturing our day from morning till night. I can't express how thankful we are for sharing our day with us. I would recommend him to anyone. My family and friends have also said they'd use you in the future. Once again Sam, thank you so so much!

We are so glad we used Sam as photographer at the 85th birthday party of our Dad, Dennis. Sam was absolutely brilliant and captured many wonderful moments of Dad's happy night that Dad will always treasure. If you are ever struggling with thinking of a present for a older relative who already has everything, we would thoroughly recommend using the services of a professional photographer, and that Sam is your photographer of choice.

So glad we booked Sam as our wedding photographer. He was really helpful and friendly throughout and from the day we booked him. He made everyone feel relaxed on the day, particularly me, and he never stopped. He knows his stuff and the gorgeous photos proved this. I would recommend Sam to anyone.

Nicola and Simon

A true professional and a gentleman. Sam understood very well what we wanted and nothing was too much bother. I would highly recommend Sam. He visited us twice before our big day to make sure everything ran smoothly. Everybody that has seen the photographs have said how good and natural they are.

Sam saved the day for me and my husband back in July 2016 as we was let down on our special day as the photographer we booked and paid never turned up , my maid of honour was ringing around like a crazy woman trying to find a replacement which I didn't think we would as it was literally last minute, anyway she found sam who was up a ladder fixing his roof when he took the call , within half hour he was at my house , was a perfect gentleman, wasn't pushy or in your face with his camera, my pictures were fantastic and just what we wanted, So the original photographer not turning up was a blessing in disguise as sam did a brilliant job on our day, thanks Sam

Sam is an amazing photographer. He was recommended to us and by god I am so glad. We couldn't of asked for the most perfect pictures. He kept in touch from the minute we said we wanted him as our photographer till about 4 weeks after we received our pictures. He suggested lots of ideas and he also listened and tried out some that we wanted to try too. He made me feel so relaxed on the wedding day and took pictures that were a beautiful time line from the start of the day until the end. I would definitely recommend him to any one. He is so flexible too with how long you want him for and where you want him to go. He stayed with us from morning until night thank you so much sam

We couldn't of asked for a better photographer to record our special day! We have already fell in love with the teaser shots we've seen and way too excited to see the rest. This guy is highly professional and extremely reliable. Throughout planning our special day we were always in contact with each other and he were there to help if I needed him. Thank you so much you went the extra mile more than i ever expected to make sure our day was nothing but perfect we appreciate your kindness and for everything! If anyone is looking for a fantastic photographer who won't let you down then this is definitely your man.

David and Rhianne

We hired Sam for our wedding. Right from the start he made us feel relaxed. He explained how he works, and what to expect, but over all he just put us at ease having a laugh with us and we knew straight away he was the man for the job.

He took us on an engagement shoot, so we got a feel of how the day would be. After showing us the pictures he asked if there was anything we didn't like or anything he could improve on but we were very impressed. On the wedding day he came round early In the morning, driving back and forth getting shots of the bride and the groom getting ready, and everyone else involved, getting some lovely group shots. Throughout the day he made sure nobody was left out, getting every shot we asked of him and more. Sometimes he was like a ninja and you didn't even know he was there, which lead to some nice surprises when receiving the pictures. We highly recommend him. He puts in 100% We've hired him since then for a 60th birthday party and everyone commented about the effort he put in. We've stayed in touch since, and would happily hire him again.

"Sam shot my wedding in April 2015. What sets Sam apart from other photographers is his mix of approach-ability and focus. He knows how to work with people to get the best out of a scene, whilst taking into account what a busy day a wedding is! Photos are important, but so are guests - Sam understands this and works with you to capture great memories of a special day."

Caron and Billy

Sam was so professional with our wedding pictures.Obviously we had no idea or expectations of what we wanted,but Sam made sure we had a wedding album that was individual to our day. We were totally amazed at all that he had captured. There were lot's of pictures that we hadn't even seen him take, but he has captured the real feel of the day. It was amazing seeing and really feeling the full day all over again. I would fully recommend Sam for any occasions that you would want to remember all those smallest of details, again and again.

Sam took some fantastic portraits of me recently, for use as my 'author' photo for the cover of my debut novel, The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper. He was friendly and professional, had some great ideas and really knew his stuff. The result was a small portfolio of lovely photos that my publisher in the US approved and which will now feature on covers of the book in the UK, US and further afield, and across social media. Many thanks, Sam!

Mike and Klara

We used Sam Ralph for our wedding photography and the whole experience and service he provided was outstanding. The experience was tailored to our requirements and we couldn't have ended up with a more appropriate result. Our wedding day went by so fast, be the photos we ended up with mean we can remember the whole day clearly for the rest of our lives. Excellent service and fantastic results.


 Love his laid back nature and makes you feel like you have known him for years, I liked listening to his ideas and technics in photography.  Julie Wilkinson

Sam is a gentleman and so professional, he remains calm under pressure and his photographs are natural and beautifully taken xx
