Testimonials

“We had a lovely experience during our photo shoot at Philip Charles Photography. I initially spoke to Vicky over the phone to book our shoot, she was very friendly and I got an instant good feeling! Phil made us feel very welcome as soon as we walked through the door with our baby and pet chihuahua. He was very friendly and chatty throughout. He also had a lot of experience with kids being a dad himself, so understood when I had to stop to feed our baby half way through. We couldn’t wait to see our photographs the following week! When we returned, Vicky again was very chatty and friendly. We were so pleased with all of our photos and there was no pressure to buy, but she was very helpful and informative in helping us choose what we wanted. We had a great experience. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back in the future and will recommend to family and friends!’

“Our recent family shoot was fantastic. We were made to feel so at ease and relaxed throughout. Being a dad himself, Phil was so patient with our mischievous boys and really took his time to capture some beautiful pictures. We returned the following week to view our photos with Vicky…..😀they were all stunning!!! This made it so difficult to choose our favourite ones! Vicky was great as she made us aware of all our options and guided us through our choices without being pushy at all! She was so understanding of our budget too! We would highly recommend Philip Charles photography to our family and friends as the service was fabulous. Can’t wait for our pictures to arrive now!!”

“We had Phil with us on our wedding day. I couldn’t recommend them more. Phil helped calm me in the morning and got all the pictures we wanted. He’s done some brilliant shots with us and I can’t wait to see them. Phil is also a really nice person, a lot of people from our wedding commented how nice he was, having a chat and a laugh with us all. He even went the extra mile and came to the hospital with us so I could have some pictures with my very poorly nan. It’s a moment I’ll treasure forever. Thank you so much”

“My partner and I were treated to the very generous gift of a family photo shoot by my lovely auntie. Neither of us are natural models!!! So we were both apprehensive, but were made to feel so relaxed and comfortable that we really enjoyed the experience. I was genuinely close to tears when we went to see our photos, as they were just beautiful and captured our baby boy’s cheeky nature perfectly. Both Philip and Vicky are lovely, welcoming people and I couldn’t recommend them more highly. Thank you Philip Charles photography for memories to last a lifetime!”

“We went recently for a family photo shoot and the photos are amazing, I love our new updates. The photo shoot itself was very relaxed and we got some lovely natural photos. Phil was very patient when our 3 year old son who wanted to have fun running in circles and even got some nice pics during this time. Best photographer I know and will never go anywhere else! Phil photographed our wedding too so it’s lovely that he is able to watch our family grow 🙂 thank you for being so great x”

“We first met Phil at a friends wedding and immediately were drawn to his warmth, humour and how he made everyone feel at ease whilst photographing. When it was our turn a year later we had no doubt who we wanted to document our special day. We had 2 meetings with Phil before the big day, who explained the process clearly and in depth so to capture our day as we wanted it. Throughout the day Phil worked efficiently so we were able to spend time enjoying our day too, and captured beautiful photos. After the wedding Phil and his team were quick to work on the photos and send us a link in able to decide on our wedding album. We cannot speak highly enough of Phil and Vicky”

“Just picked all of our photos from our wedding and we’re so pleased. Phill captured the magic of our day and has given us photos we can treasure forever. He put us at ease on the day and made it so enjoyable. He has edited the photos so that we have a range of black and white and colours. I have recommended him to so many. Thank you for giving us memories that will last forever, we can’t wait to see our album!”

“As much as I hate having my photos taken, I couldn’t thank Vicky and Phil enough for such a relaxed experience on a family photoshoot.The shoot itself was such fun and Phil managed to get such beautiful photos of the whole family. The baby smiled his way through and the 3 year old has discovered a new love of the camera. Our viewing with Vicky was also so professional. There were no hard sales and everyone came away happy with some photographs to treasure for ever…”

“After the birth of our little boy we went to a newborn photo shoot with Phil. This was a wonderful experience. Phil was amazing with our son and so patient. He took his time and we did not feel rushed or under pressure to settle our son when he woke and needed feeding. The photos came back better than we could have expected. We cannot speak highly enough of Phil and Vicky…”

“Vicky did most of the leg work getting us booked in (even though I was being a nightmare and kept changing times and days to try to fit the family in) – but she was superb – really friendly and accommodating. When we went for the shoot itself, Philip was awesome with our 5 year old. Really put her at ease and adapted his style to suit her sense of humour to get the best shots – which they were! Absolutely superb – we are so pleased with them. Massive thank you to both Vicky and Philip – the whole thing was great and we will definitely be back to you next time anyone needs a pic – can’t recommend highly enough! Book, book, book!..”
