Melissa & Joe. Italy.
If someone asked me to describe Neil in three words I would use creative, vivacious and extremely talented…ok so that’s four but you get the gist ?
Not only is he all of these things, he is so much more and can turn your dreams into reality, this is what he did for me and my husband on our wedding day. We got married in a beautiful little town called Santa Maria di Castellabate on the Cilento coast in Italy and if you are a prospective client looking through his photos on his website then please do take a look at ours as every single one is truly stunning, we have had so many compliments on them, from friends and family to people we don’t even know.
Many comments have been how they look like something out of a magazine!
People have said they are the best wedding photographs they have ever seen, the magical use of light is just simply beautiful.
He flew out to Italy the day before our wedding and I remember we were sitting round the table with all our guests having lunch and he came up to me, gave me a big kiss and hug and was so overwhelmed at being there to photograph our day and at how beautiful everything was….he has even been to Santa Maria before to shoot weddings which is one of the reasons we picked him as we wanted someone who knew the area a little bit, so for him to be so enthusiastic about being back there for us was really touching, it made us both feel very special and he really is one of the friendliest guys you will ever meet.
On the wedding day, I will never forget when he came to the hotel to take pictures of me and my bridesmaids getting ready and produced this piece of paper which was absolutely covered from corner to corner of different shots and visions he had for the day, where he wanted us to go, how he wanted us to stand, who was to be in the shots….it was like a creative masterpiece! Neither me or my husband-to-be could believe it, turns out he had been out the night before wandering all around Santa Maria looking for special nooks and corners and visualising our day so he could make it unique for us.
To me this is true dedication to your job and I’ve never seen anything like it, you could tell he was proud of it and so were we.
After seeing our wedding pictures since we have been home, I am so pleased that we chose Neil, he not only captured our day perfectly but he has given us so many special memories to cherish for the rest of our lives.
I would recommend him highly to anyone and I hope future couples choose him to shoot their day as it will be the best decision they ever made.
Thanks Neil, you’re an absolute star!
Lots of Love Melissa & Joe Newton
