"A few years before we got married a friend of mine attended a wedding in Eastbourne. When I saw the photos I was absolutely blown away and knew that the day we got married he would have to be our photographer. So a year later when we got engaged the first thing I did was contact Luke in the hope he would be free. Fortunately he was! He was exactly what we were looking for because his photos were beautiful, they capture the moment and weren't staged which is exactly what we wanted. Luke was always quick to respond, easy to get hold of and gave any advice we needed. We were surprised how reasonable his pricing was in comparison to other photographers who weren't anywhere near as incredible as him. He was definitely worth every penny! On the day Luke arrived on time and was there when me and the bridesmaids were getting ready. He didn't get in the way and you would hardly know he was there but he took so many beautiful natural 'getting ready' photos.
Then he made sure he got photos of our wedding set up and surrounding areas so we had a collection of everything. He included family groups and the rest were beautiful natural photos of the rest of our day. He stayed until the first dance so he was able to capture the dance floor going off, the action shots were incredible! Luke then sent us so many more photos than we had expected, edited beautifully and all online so we could save and print as we wanted. We were so so happy with the final prints, such amazing quality and everyone has complimented us on our photos since. Luke really captures the day and the photos are great reminders of such a wonderful day! We couldn't thank him enough and we highly recommend him thanks again Luke! Love Mr and Mrs Peters x"
"We were incredible lucky to have Luke as our photographer. As I work in the creative industry and with imagery, I had a certain style that I was looking for. After a close friend recommended him to us I quickly saw from his work he had the style and skills I had been looking for.
We met up with Luke to go through his work, our vision and questions. I was a rather organised Bride with a list of questions for him, but he put us completely at ease and we could see that he would be a great person to work with and depend on for our day. We found it was really important to have organised, calm and excited people to help us create our day to help things flow, and Luke did just that. He was also always quick to respond to any emails/texts and gave us all the information we needed.
On the day he turned up on time and in the excitement and flurry of activity he just helped make us all feel relaxed and disappeared into the background. This meant that he captured really relaxed moments and you always felt at ease. Even at the church, he was there to reassure us of where he was and kept out of the way. He managed to move around and capture pictures that we didn’t even realise he was there for! He was a great help with the formal photos afterwards and helping to organise everyone.
But I think best of all were our photos of just us two. After the wedding breakfast we went for a walk around the grounds and Luke captured some absolutely glorious images, working with the Summer light to create some stunning photos, I will treasure these images as they captured how happy we were, and I cannot help but smile when I see them!
I would recommended Luke to anyone who wants more than just the standard posed photos that you see everywhere. He really captures the day as it was, with the moments you didn’t see, and images that you will treasure forever and want to display."
"We really can’t thank you enough for everything you have done. From day one through to now you have provided the most incredible service. You were genuinely a pleasure to have around on our wedding day and actually so calmly helpful and supportive that in hindsight I am not sure how we would have coped without you! Also most importantly your pictures are truly stunning. You have such a fantastic eye and managed to creatively capture our wedding day in the most beautiful way and in exactly the right mood and tone – you really are very talented! We can’t thank you enough! Mr&mrs Brown xxx"
"I was recommended Luke Woodford by a friend when we were researching photographers. I would say that of all the decisions and choices we made for our wedding, Luke was by far the best."
"On the day, he was relaxed and really good fun to be around. As someone who doesn't usually like being photographed, I felt completely at ease with Luke and he captured some incredible shots whilst I didn't even realise! When we saw our pictures, they literally took my breath away. He had captured moments of our day that otherwise would have been missed, and we will be forever grateful that we now have them to keep. I have been lucky enough to attend many weddings and have seen many pictures, but as far as I am concerned the quality of Luke's work is unparalleled and I cannot recommend him highly enough - he will truly make your day."
"We were put in touch with Luke after I had seen some of his work online and had completely fallen in love with his aesthetic. We simply cannot thank you enough for the amazing service and beautiful photos we received (full of so much character & detail). The turnaround service was unbelievable too, over 1000 edited pictures delivered in just two days!! Although myself and my husband only met Luke in person on our wedding day, it’s clear from our pictures that he knew what type of look we were going for and he effortlessly captured the feeling of the day – captured us!
"I literally would have changed my wedding date to get Luke. I followed his photography for some time and had no doubt when it came to our wedding photos who I wanted. There was no second choice. Luke has this ability to capture something so raw but oh so beautiful in his work and I wanted that edge to my pictures. I wanted true photos, not staged or false and he has this ability to capture a moment at the perfect time with the perfect look that looks like a magazine shoot except you didn't even know he was there.
Every choice we made about our wedding was to represent us. We wanted as natural as possible and that's all I told Luke, to capture us like that and that's what we got, real photos with such beauty. He took photos of just the way we look at each other and they take my breath away. He's seriously talented and passionate about his work. I couldn't wait to see the photos and honestly I had no idea how beautiful I could look and Luke gave me that gift to treasure."
"Thank you for everything Luke, we were so lucky to have you photograph our wedding. It was a pleasure having you there on the day, you were so calming and helpful, even finding the venue on Google maps because we didn't know where we were going! You have captured the day so wonderfully, not just the usual posed shots, but so many shots of people having fun and enjoying the day, which we never would have seen without your pics. We're so happy with the photos we are struggling to choose a favourite for the thank you cards. Thanks again for capturing the most special moments of our day."
"Luke did our wedding photos and they were amazing. He is very professional but has a great way of making you feel very relaxed and comfortable throughout the day when taking photos. We loved all of our photos and after the weding we had people commenting on how beautiful our photos were. I would definitely recommend him and have done as he has since done many family weddings! Brilliant photographer."
