What our clients say
At Solid, we pride ourselves on the quality of our work and service, and as you can imagine, we love creating the images we create, but equally, we love the reaction we get from our clients.
It is of course true, that a good photograph can say a thousand words, can even change the world, but then sometimes, a few words are just as powerful and comforting and kind.
"Words fail us, just outstanding"
"Planning a wedding can be slightly overwhelming especially when you don’t know a photographer and are told by friends and family that you must invest in the best as you’ll have those photos to look back on for the rest of your life. Well, Jon didn’t disappoint and delivered in many ways above and beyond just taking photos!
After an initial meet and greet introduction through a website called bidvine, we immediately warmed to Jon and his affable demeanour. Jon met us at the wedding venue and albeit being winter and pitch black, as we could only meet him after work, Jon still took pretty much his whole evening talking through how it would all work on the day.
After the meeting we both felt so relaxed and at ease knowing that Jon ‘Got it’ and would smash it on the day, which he absolutely did!
All our friends and family were so complimentary about Jon. His work ethic, how great (and patient) he was with the kids and so completely professional at all times.
Jon, you worked incredibly hard on the day, even uploading photos onto the website before you left in the evening. You truly are exceptionally good at what you do and offer an exemplary service! Thank you so much for making our Wedding Day so special!"

Subject: You being amazing
Just wanted to say the most enormous thank you for all of your efforts on Saturday. You’ve managed to get some incredible shots and so many people have said how good the photos are. And as well as that, everyone thought you were a top bloke too!
Hope you managed to get some rest yesterday after your all-nighter. We’ve just arrived in Barcelona, so some very welcome down time lies ahead for us too.
You went above and beyond on Saturday and we are so so grateful. We’ll be in touch when we get back to sort out buying one of the timelines from you."

"I have been to so many friends weddings over the years and I have never come across photographers like you, attentive, discreet, professional, and cool under pressure, you even helped my Uncle with directions to the church! The results are just stunning especially for what you charge, we feel like we have ripped you off, thank you so so much".

What our clients guests say
"So sorry you were not available to cover our wedding [We were taking photos at the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations], think I may have to get my dress on again and employ you to take some portraits of us".
Stacey Recently [we are sorry too, JB]
"£3.00 for an 8x6 inch print, it is so nice to find a photographer who charges a reasonable price for their work, 'greedy' certainly cannot be levelled at you, and the prints arrived within 2 days, and they are beautiful".
Pam Guest at Sarah and Marcus's wedding 2013
"The photo you took of my daughter is simply quite lovely, the print we ordered sits central on the mantlepiece, I wonder if you think it would be OK if I could get a small digital copy of it so I could email it to my brother down under?".
