Kind words from happy clients
Delighting my clients with a relaxed photography session, beautiful prints and albums, and memories they can treasure forever is hugely rewarding and the main reason I love my job so much. I’m so grateful to everyone who’s taken the time to let me know how happy they are with their photographs, and I’m proud to share their kind words below.
We were really worried about finding the right photographer for our wedding - neither of us particularly likes having our photo taken so we wanted someone who would be able to take natural, candid photographs of us that wouldn't make us feel too formal and stilted.
Owen was recommended to us by a friend, and from our very first meeting with him, we knew that he understood exactly what we were after and we were absolutely thrilled when he agreed to work with us. He was calm, patient and full of helpful ideas at every turn, which made us feel completely relaxed and comfortable. On the day, he managed to blend in among the crowd so well that we barely even noticed he was there, and when the photos came back he had captured wonderful, intimate moments when we didn't even know we were being photographed.
He prepared a beautiful online gallery for us as well as a stunning physical album that we will treasure forever. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Owen to anyone looking for a wedding photographer - he's a rare talent.
The photos of my recent 30th birthday party were extremely important to me as they are the only keepsake from the night after months of stressing and planning! And I could not recommend Owen highly enough as I am ecstatic with the results. I feel he perfectly captures the love, laughter, fun and spirit of the evening.
On the night Owen was professional and I was not aware of him there, constantly snapping away. This meant he was able to get lots of natural, in the moment photos, just as I wanted. Any future events we have I will definitely be contacting Owen, though I don't want to have to organise anything any time soon!
We searched for a long time to find a photographer for our wedding reception who was focused on natural, documentary style photography. From the first phone call we had with Owen, we felt reassured that we were in safe hands and that he was going to capture every moment the way we envisaged it.
He was very communicative and friendly in the lead up to the day, and at our wedding reception we barely noticed he was taking photos! But the photos he delivered to us were some of the most beautiful shots I've ever seen. He captured every special moment between our friends and family so perfectly. I don't especially like having my photo taken and often those photos you see of yourself that are 'unposed' are not always the most flattering, but somehow, in Owen's photos, I looked nice in all of them!
Owen even designed our wedding album, incorporating our ceremony photos from our wedding in New Zealand with his own photos from our reception, and I don't think many photographers would have offered to do this. A true professional and a very talented photographer - I have photographer envy - and I really cannot recommend him enough!
Owen is a wonderfully discrete photographer who always manages to capture the instant. He took great pictures at my Birthday party 2 years ago and we asked him back for my daughter's 21st. She is delighted with the result! The pictures are fun and different and beautiful ...and what a relief not to have to worry about taking pictures on the night! You don't notice him much but Owen is there and in charge... and you can relax and enjoy!
The first thing everyone says when they look at the photos of our wedding reception isn’t how beautiful my dress is or how happy we look but “Who was your photographer?!” I can completely understand why – the photos Owen took are, without exception, the best photos of our friends and family that we have ever seen. I can’t believe how well he’s managed to capture the event – his candid style means that every photo is so natural, so unselfconscious and relaxed, and is such a wonderful reminder of the way it felt to be in the room at the time.
All this and he managed to do it without ever really seeming to be there – he was so subtle and unobtrusive, a lot of people didn’t even realise we had a photographer and those that did never noticed him taking pictures of them – even though he was! He’s such a talented photographer, I honestly couldn’t recommend him more highly. We are over the moon with the beautiful photos and will treasure them forever.
On top of all of this, Owen is also a really lovely, warm guy – and both speedy (we had our photos in a matter of days!) and extremely reasonably-priced. You won’t regret hiring Owen for your event – it was one of the best things we did for our whole wedding and we’re so happy to have found him. Thank you Owen!
It is impossible to summarise the depth of Owen’s talent. He is simply an exceptional photographer with an incredible eye for detail. He is so discreet that half the time you don’t even know he is there. We could not believe our eyes when he sent us the link to photos. Truly successful photography is not just about capturing moments but also about their interpretation. Owen does all of this (and more) with great sensitivity and aplomb.
From a practical perspective, Owen is organized, punctual and really responsive from start to finish. Having an online gallery available to share with guests is such a great idea – people really enjoyed looking at the photos and having the freedom to order copies.
Our guests said that Owen’s pictures were the best they had ever seen and we still can’t believe our luck that he was available to capture our special day!
My fiance and I hired Owen to photograph our engagement party after reading boat loads of amazing reviews about him and his work. They're all true! He is an extreme professional, has a positive attitude and takes beautiful candid photos. Both us and our guests love the pics! Thanks again, Owen!
Owen it's so hard to find the words to say how much I loved the photographs you took for my 40th birthday. I love natural photography and you captured those precious moments so naturally and artistically. Your style is so perfect. Each picture has a purpose and a meaning. Each picture oozes feeling and emotion. I couldn't have asked you to do anything differently! The way you just blended into the background at Vertigo 42 and at HKK was amazing. You captured so many details which could have so easily been overlooked. Owen thank you so much for everything. I will be sure to contact you again. You really are one in a million. :)
I can't recommend Owen highly enough! My husband and I were looking for something a little different for our wedding reception, and Owen's natural, photojournalistic style was just perfect! Owen was a friendly, professional and unobtrusive presence and captured so many happy faces, beautiful details and special moments. A fantastic photographer!
We are absolutely delighted with Owen's photographs of our wedding and reception. We wanted to have informal photos that captured the mood and setting and he achieved both aims fantastically. His approach was low-key and the resulting photographs perfectly composed. We would not hesitate to recommend his services.
Fantastic photos, thank you for capturing wonderful memories of my daughter's 21st. I would highly recommend Owen, he was professional, charming and a pleasure to deal with.

They’re awesome photos, Owen, and they’re still on our wall, five years later!
What a pleasure it’s been working with you – you couldn’t have been more helpful and I’m sure Mum will be delighted when she gets the album!
Owen was on time, professional and the pictures turned out beautifully. We're so grateful and would recommend him strongly. Many thanks!
Owen photographed the launch of the PARKER pen museum for me, he was ultra professional and the final results are great. I'd definitely recommend him.
Owen, the photos are fantastic! Thank you for the very quick turnaround, being so patient on the day and making it such a special occasion!
Thank you so much, you've done a fantastic job, we absolutely love them. We'll be ordering the album as soon as we've picked our favourites!
Dearest Owen, you have made us all look like film stars! Everyone keeps telling me how nice you were, thank you for spending a few hours with us!
These are FAB - thank you so much! Guests are already sharing favourites on Facebook for everyone who couldn't make it, so well done!
Thank you so much for getting the photos of the London launch party to us so quickly, I think they're great!
Thank you, Owen, I'm really happy with the images, they're exactly what I was looking for! Great to meet you on the evening and looking forward to working with you again.
Owen did an exceptional job, blending in and capturing guests as themselves. He's adaptable, unobtrusive, and good-spirited, I recommend him completely!
You were so discrete, which is wonderful for a photographer so people don't freeze - thank you so much!
We're delighted with our party photos! Thank you so much, it's lovely to have such a good photographic record.
I had the pleasure of using Owen for my voice actor headshots this week. He came to my studio and took some great shots of me. Working with Owen was a really relaxed experience and I very much enjoyed his company. The next day I chose a few final shots and he gave me the B&W options with a little treatment. I would highly recommend Owen, his photographs are of outstanding quality and he was friendly, confident and a pleasure to deal with.
