I reached the regional finals (again) in the Wedding Industry Awards for the West Midlands. Its an amazing achievement to get to the finals alongside some of West Midlands amazing wedding photographers. I didn’t win , and that’s ok . Winning photography awards is not why I started wedding photographing. Infact I have never ever entered any other competition other than the Wedding Industry Awards. Their are many reason’s why I don’t enter awards but the main reason is that I shoot only for my couples. It is their voices that matter to me not a judging panel.
So during the competition my wedding parties can enter some feedback for me. I have read every word and it really does mean everything to me.I didn’t cry !! Honestly. Thank you for your kind words and letting me photograph such a special moment. This is what my 2017 brides and grooms said about me.
Here’s my feedback
What can I say other than what an amazing lady Faye is. On both a personal and professional level. She put myself/wedding party and guests at ease and fitted in with our day perfectly.We had chatted so much before the wedding day that it felt like having an extra friend there on the date itself. Having seen fayes previous work I had high expectations of our final wedding photos. They exceeded that expectation,we absolutely loved each and every one of them. Such an amazing talent!! Faye was absolutely amazing before, during and after our wedding day. We first spoke to Faye at a wedding fair and it was her personality and that won us over firstly. Such a lovely lady with a great sense of humour. We had seen a lot of photographers work and after seeing Faye’s work we booked her there and then. She really took on board what we wanted from the photos and got them perfect. All of our family and friends love them as much as we do. We couldn’t be happier hence the full 10s!
We booked Faye 18 months before our wedding after seeing her photos she did for a work colleagues wedding. We were so impressed with the quality of them and loved how she captured such natural pictures. When we met with Faye she was so bubbly, kind and promised to deliver an outstanding service on the day of our wedding. We weren’t disappointed and couldn’t have asked for more! She went above and beyond what we expected and so many guests commented on how amazing she was.
Faye took the time to meet with us on a Sunday morning at our home, she spent time chatting through our ideas and made us feel so relaxed. On the day she was so much fun but at the same time almost invisible, she was always there for the perfect moments and took every photo we had dreamed of it not more. I could not compliment her more, from start to finish she was outstanding. I recommend her to everyone! Thanks Faye!
An amazing Lovely and friendly beautiful photos did my friends wedding as well wouldn’t of wanted no one else
Very friendly, knowledgeable and personal, photos exactly as we wanted and a fast return on all the prints
Booking Faye was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding day. She fitted in perfectly on our special day and all of our guests were so complimentary of her and her style. The photos that we received were AMAZING and even better than we could ever have hoped for! She has an ability to capture the day and so many special moments perfectly. She is a lovely lady who is very easy to work with and made us and our guests feel fully relaxed and I would highly recommend her to any couple.
Faye was amazing! She is so easy to talk to and makes you feel so at ease. Her effortless style and easy to warm to attitude showed in the photographs, which don’t look forced in anyway and capture the feel of the day perfectly. Her nature and way with people ensured all the guests were relaxed, which I think really made the images that we now have to treasure. Faye has the natural ability to make anyone relax and smile. Absolutely perfect and first class service from start to finish.
Faye was absolutely amazing. Very easily contactable all through the process and kept putting us at ease. Faye was friendly and professional and all guests felt she was part of the bridal party. She was very quick with supplying us with sneak peaks so we could enjoy our honeymoon with a little taster and then as soon as we were back the whole album was ready. We could relive the whole day as every section was captured, including things we didn’t even know.
Faye is fantastic, very professional and very easy to get on with. She managed to make me feel at ease and that wasn’t easy as I really really don’t like having my pictures taken.. 🙂 I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Faye to anyone.
Faye is not only a lovely person with a great sense of humour, she is a brilliant photographer. Faye came to our house to discuss what we were looking for prior to booking her, she also kept in contact through emails, and made sure everything was organised with a phone call a week before the wedding. She took a lot of stress and worry out of the day. Faye captured the whole day so well that we can relive each moment every time we look at the photos.
Faye was amazing from start to finish! She put us at ease and was discret and understanding to our needs as we aren’t a very poesy couple! She was simply outstanding and my whole wedding party have commented on how lovely she was on the day. The photos are great and capture us as a couple and as a wider family brilliantly.
Faye is an amazing photographer and person! She was a big help on my day and captured every special moment perfectly!! Definitely recommend to all.
Amazing lady Faye Everything we asked for she did Made our day exciting great personality Everybody commented on Faye how great she was
Faye is an absolute pleasure to have at your wedding and capturing your day. From the minute you book her she takes real pride in making sure she’s capturing exactly what you want with a pre meeting. On the day she was more than a photographer, she helped with a few bits and bobs and we genuinely had such a laugh with her when off taking just Bride and groom pics. We can’t wait to see them. A beautiful person inside and out.
Faye was amazing from beginning to end. She worked so hard, we couldn’t have asked for more. She captured some amazing photos, and made us feel at ease throughout the day.
My couples were asked Why did you book Faye?
From the first point of contact,Faye was both professional and friendly..she came out to meet me to show me her portfolio and I instantly knew I wanted to book her.she completely understood what I was hoping to achieve and her style of photography was exactly what I had in mind.
We saw previous work Faye had done at Mythe Barn after chatting to her for about half an hour and it made me and my wife really emotional! (And I’m not usually an emotional person!) They were incredible. The way she used light, the surroundings and the emotion of the day to take the images was second to none. On the day she brilliant at organising without being intrusive. She didn’t stop working 9am to 9pm – I don’t know how she does it! I would recommend her to anybody.
After meeting with Faye we knew she was the photographer for us, we wanted someone reliable, trustworthy and passionate and we got all of that and more with Faye.
After meeting Faye, how could we not! She made the process completely hassle free, understood everything we wanted and she can’t be beaten on price. It was a no brainer!
We met Faye at a wedding Fayre and we loved her portfolios and relaxed style and instantly clicked with her. She outdid all of our expectations. She listened to our ideas and worked seamlessly on the day to give us what we had requested and more.
Examples of her work from her website, recommends from friends and because it’s Faye and she made us feel so at ease and I knew I could trust her to provide us with perfect images, she didn’t let me down. They are perfect!!
I was looking online for local photographers to capture our big day and after finding a few, Faye was our first choice we decided to contact and after talking to her we never phoned anybody else. She was perfect!!!
I initially met Faye at a wedding fayre at Packington Moor, she was a very friendly and approachable person, totally down to earth. After researching photographers I knew Faye was the one we were going to pick. Neither myself or my husband like posing for photos, and didn’t want a lot of time away from our guests, we’d been to weddings where you hardly saw the bride and groom as they had been taken away for photos for such a long time that they were unable to spend time with their guests. Faye totally understood this, as very few of the photos were posed, we feel that each photo tells a different story of the day.
We had been at a wedding which Faye captured and we loved her personality and how comfortable she made everyone feel. Once we then saw the photos which were amazing we knew she was the one for us.
Thank you to my 2017 couple …. 2018 I am coming for you.
