Happy Couples

His photographs speak for themselves! But what you can’t see is how wonderful Peter is behind the scenes. He was the most organized of all the vendors we worked with for our wedding (and more organized than we were!) This meant a Skype consultation beforehand to discuss all aspects of the wedding and working together to create a precise schedule for the portraits and other photos on the day of. He was such a calming presence, and his careful organizational process leading up to the wedding made us feel well-prepared and at ease.

In addition, Peter’s demeanor behind the camera made us feel very comfortable. Everything felt incredibly natural, because he gave us a series of actions for the shots that allowed us to move and interact like we normally do as a couple. No awkward staged poses here! Most of all, Peter’s continual positive reinforcement quelled any nervousness we felt, and allowed us to best express what we felt for one another on camera. We are beyond grateful to Peter for his artistry, and his gorgeous photos of our wedding, which will help us relive the magic of our special day every time we look at them.

Where do we even begin ...
Having spent weeks researching photographers we were beginning to think we wouldn't ever find the right fit for our wedding, but we were oh so wrong! We first met Peter at a small tea room in Bridge near our venue the summer before our wedding and it took us precisely 10mins after the meeting to contact him and confirm he was our man!

From that point on, we were in constant contact with Peter about our developing wedding plans and far from being 'just' our wedding photographer, he became our counselor and friend. He has a knack of knowing when to check in and make sure things are ok. Peter seemed genuinely as excited as were were about our big day and, in hindsight, being able to confide all our plans to someone and get the reassurance that things would be fabulous in the end was just invaluable (especially considering we didn't have a bridal party!). He made sure we stayed focused on the big picture and not the everyday 'wedmin' details. We've never heard of a photographer making mix-tapes for his clients and sending them date night packages to make sure they take some time out for eachother as a couple!

Peter's photography style completely suited our relaxed, informal farm fete style wedding. He is a self-confessed details man and captured all our personal touches perfectly. Peter blends in with wedding guests with such ease that you really do forget he is there sometimes! We didn't want big formal group shots and endless 'just one more' moments. We wanted a fun and beautiful record of our day - Peter certainly gave us that and went above and beyond to make sure that we would never forget what an awesome day we had.

We have looked through our wedding photos so many times and have sent a lot of them out to our guests as a momento of what will forever be one of the best days of our lives. So many of our guests wanted to know how we had found Peter to book him themselves and lots assumed he was an old friend from our Canterbury university days! We really do feel that having Peter be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made and wouldn't hesitate for a single second to recommend him to others.

Peter was one of the first suppliers we found and booked. The way he captures real, candid moments and doesn’t forget about the surrounding details and environment made us fall in love with his work within seconds. What we actually didn’t realise when we booked Peter is that we would also gain a good friend in the process.

We booked Peter in 2021 and didn’t get married until September 2023 so we had quite a bit of time to get to know him and wow, did he go above and beyond as a supplier. From sending us vegan chocolate for Christmas and a beautiful little sign that we used during our day to creating various playlists, and sharing tips for calming nerves etc.

Neither of us particularly revel in having our photos taken but throughout the process of both the pre-wedding shoot and our wedding day, Peter and his second shooter Emily both made us feel so relaxed, to the point where we could actually find the process enjoyable.

The morning of the wedding was made so special by the suppliers I had with me, Peter being one of them. They all created such a lovely, calm atmosphere and then throughout the day, Peter helped us to keep the day running smoothly (on top of taking the most sensational photos). At times, both Peter and Emily were so good at being discreet while working, I didn’t even realise they were there and yet the photos that have come back to us show they were right there in the thick of it all capturing so many amazing moments that we're so grateful to have forever.

When you book Peter you’re getting way more than just beautiful, timeless photos. You’re getting a friend, supporter, advisor and probably the best hype man you will ever experience.

I don't think we'll ever stop looking at our gallery. Thank you for everything Peter!

Where to start with Peter Reynolds?!

From our first interaction via Instagram to the pre-wedding shoot to the wedding day, it was clear that choosing Peter as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made. He is the most lovely, genuine guy who put us right at ease from the get go - it was just like you were hanging out with a friend.

Not only are his photos edited so beautifully, he really gets to know you as a couple to ensure that the shots he takes are the ones you really want. Whether or not Peter would deliver was never in doubt - what is truly impressive is how he manages to capture things in such a way that transports you straight back to the day, with all the emotion that comes with it.

From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU SO MUCH for being an absolute dream. We will cherish this gallery for years to come.

So it’s review time, and this is tough because do words even exist that could adequately describe Peter’s work? It’s unlikely, but we will give it a shot.

So when we began planning, the now Husband and I were keen on keeping those costs low, but agreed that, being our wedding day, we could pick one thing each that we wouldn’t question costs with. Husband picked hog roast (why wouldn’t you, it’s amazing) and I picked Peter!

Photographers are a huge expense, but I won’t rant as to why that is (they deserve it all, trust me), I’ll just say, photos are the one thing that you take from that day which does not get overlooked or forgotten about. Your photographs are your memories, it’s what you show off, hang on the wall and post on all social media accounts - they are worth the investment.

Why Peter, well, all my recollections of weddings I’ve attended have the awkward thirty minutes of; “okay, stand here, smile, now the next group shot”. Meaning achey jaws, awkward, staged photos, with irritable guests, because we all just want to start the food, mingling and drinking! The photos just aren’t REAL. Plus, who actually enjoys having their photo taken?!

Peters work and work ethic is exceptional, he has emailed regularly throughout the planning, even helping find a venue when our first choice fell through! He’s always on hand to offer his knowledge and advice, and to remind you to be kind to yourself! A couple of weeks before the wedding, he even sent a date night pack to pick a movie, with some popcorn! (Ps, tip, the earlier you book, the more Christmas presents he sends you).
I think the thing that separates Peter from the rest has to be his very evident love for his work, and it’s something that is demonstrated in every single photo!

You’ll see a lot of reviews referring to Peter as a friend, not just their photographer - and it’s all true! I’m not entirely sure how he does it, but from the moment you send that welcome message, he’s invested, he’s in and he’s there! He cares and that’s so important as your wedding day only happens once (hopefully, that’s the goal, right!)

I know I haven’t actually spoken much about the photos, but is there any need, it’s why you’re here reading this isn’t it? You can see for yourself his work is exceptional. After receiving our photos, he asked us if we had any favourites (yes, you’re stuck with him after the wedding too, I wasn’t lying about making a friend for life!). We don’t, how can we, every single image is so naturally taken, raw, straight up capturing the emotion of that exact moment. We couldn’t pick a photo, because they aren’t photos, every image is a little emotional time-warp!

Peters work is exactly what we envisioned, natural grabs of the day that truly captured the emotion, story and essence of that moment in time, and that’s exactly what we wanted.

To say we are ecstatic with our photos would do Peter & Lindsay an injustice, but I hope that my rambling has captured at least some of the reasons that you shouldn’t hesitate and book!
