Kay Brown (Bride's Mum) - Rogerthorpe Manor.

"Dear Alex and Janet, we would like to thank you for everything you have done in making our wedding day so special.  The professionalism and dedication you have shown us has been out of this world, and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you in the future.  Our wedding photographs were and still are one of the most important aspects of the wedding.  You made it obvious from our very first meeting of the passion you both have in your photography so without hesitation we secured our booking - and what a brilliant choice we made.  I don't think we could ever thank you enough for everything you have done - the whole process has been something we will never forget.  We look forward very much to being able to treasure such a wonderful wedding album."

Laura Tyreman - bride's sister.

"Just wanted to say how pleased I am for you on winning your awards.  You deserve the recognition for your constant hard work!  Well done and congratulations; so happy for you!  PS I've shown Simon the wedding photographs and he loves them!  I had a good cry when I heard  the music in the background too (on the internet)  - happy tears though." 
Becky Hammond - Crow Hill, Marsden And Bridal Boudior.

"I just thought I'd drop you a quick line to tell you how delighted we are with the photo's and to say thank you for making us so welcome.  Once again, you have produced some amazing work that we will treasure forever.  We will definitely be in touch again in the not-too-distant future when the "little man" is able to charge around under his own steam!"

Amanda & Liam Busby - Wood Hall.

"Thank you for a wonderful photo session and you made us all feel really welcome and at ease at your studio.  It was a fantastic day and we all enjoyed our time with you, and now have some brilliant photos.  It was especially good to see the patience you had with our five year old and managed to maintain his interest when he got bored.  A very professional couple that made it easy and joyful.  We highly recommend Alex and Janet to anyone who needs good photographs, whatever the occasion.  Thank you."

"
Claire And Adriaan Rhodes - The Marriott Hotel, Brighouse.

"We cannot thank you enough for our beautiful wedding photos.  You have captured our day beautifully and very professionally.  The time you spent with us before the wedding made us feel very at ease and comfortable, as you are both so kind and understanding to people who are not used to being photographed.  After the wedding you still had time to spend with us and are always there to help with anything regarding the photos that we have needed.  Thank you for sharing our wedding day with us.  Every little detail for us to remember has been captured so beautifully in ways we would never have thought of.  Our photos are unique and admired by all who have seen them.  Thank you so much for everything."

Glenn Pinder - Radio Presenter/Dj - Hazlewood Castle.

"Words cannot describe how we feel about our wedding photographs...  They are absolutely beautiful!  Thank you for being there to capture the highlights of the happiest day of our lives.  You both worked so hard all day and into the night, and we felt totally relaxed working with you.  We especially like your attention to detail - and the fact that you really do care and put unlimited effort into everything you do.  We felt so special and on top of the world and it really showed.  Everyone looked stunning.  The day was perfect and we enjoyed every second of it.  Thank you both so much - we can't wait to see the finished album and it will be a very precious memento that we will treasure forever."  
Claire And Neil Young - The Woodlands Hotel.

"Darren and I would like to thank you both so much for providing us with a faultless photography service for our wedding.  You gave excellent value for money because you made several trips to meet us at home as well as being present at our wedding for the whole day and then producing such a creative and beautiful photo album.  We have loved showing it to our family and friends and will treasure it forever.  We felt we could rely on you 100% and I was very reassured that we booked you for our day.  We would highly recommend you to any of our friends who may get married in the future.  As you can see, you also added the perfect finishing touch to our thank you cards for our wedding!"
Charlotte And Darren Tomlinson - Rogerthorpe Manor.

"Chris and I had a Hindu wedding ceremony, and while Alex and Janet had never photographed this type of wedding before, we had no doubts when choosing them.  Their professionalism was evident from the very first meeting we had with them, and we really got a sense of their dedication to wedding photography.  The whole process was made extremely enjoyable due to their warm and easy-going personalities - on the wedding day itself, which was very hectic, this was particularly appreciated by me!  Their direction on our wedding day was subtle yet efficient, and they really worked hard to capture all the important aspects of the ceremony and reception.  The finished product is a stunning album which is much admired by everyone who sees it!  For us, the photography was a crucial part of the day, as pictures will be treasured long after the celebration is over.  Alex and Janet offer a completely personal service from start to finish, taking time to understand the requirements of the bride and groom, and their families, as well as injecting their own creative expertise to create some really beautiful shots and layouts in the album.  We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them!"
Sirsha Hesketh - Brodsworth Hall.

"I am absolutely over the moon with the album.  It is everything I expected and so much more.  You did such a wonderful job both on the day and afterwards with the photos and I am so pleased we chose you and Alex to be our photographers.  You are both just brilliant.  Thank you so much for all your help with everything."
Kathryn Boyes - Wood Hall.

"You genuinely exceeded our expectations.  You had the confidence to be honest with us throughout, even when I brought you my "Blue Peter" book, which in itself instilled that we had an implicit trust in you to provide us with a product which was not only what we wanted but equally important to us was that it was something we were proud of, as professionals, to show far and wide.  The flexibility to be able to access you, usually out of normal working hours was crucial to engaging us with the process.  If you put as much time and effort into every wedding you do as you did with ours then we suspect you are very busy people.  Janet and Alex, your passion, professionalism and well evidenced experience of photography shines thoughout everything you do.  From the minute we first met to the minute we finally left with our completed album we were in awe of two people who gain so much pleasure from their chosen career.  Your dedication, time and effort to deliver a bespoke package to reflect our individual requirements and style whilst still encouraging creativity with a respect for tradition is just what we wanted.  Your approach was truly outstanding - a five star delivery from a couple who are the epitome of professionalism, as well as ensuring a sincere amount of fun is injected... it is your wedding day after all!  In short, we think that "Thank You" is the simplest way of showing our gratitude!"
Sarah And Matthew Wilson - Hazlewood Castle.

"Thank you for all your hard work and dedication which has resulted in the fantastic wedding photos we have today.  From start to finish we have really appreciated your help and enthusiasm and would happily recommend you to anyone.  Thanks again."
Christine And Ian Lynch - Sutton Park.

"Wow!  What an album!  We're both absolutely thrilled and can't stop looking at it!  We are also very proud when showing it to family and friends and many have commented that they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen!  We are all very impressed by the unique storybook format that shows off the photos in a very distinctive way - with a perfect mix of contemporary, reportage and traditional styles.  The album is a true testament to a perfect day and we can treasure the memories forever.  Every detail was captured by a professional, passionate and extremely creative husband and wife team!  Alex - your attention to detail and technical ability to turn photographs into art is overwhelmingly impressive and Janet, your ability to make people feel special, at ease and quite honestly to feel like a 'supermodel' are real gifts that play a large part in achieving the overall effect of a photo.  From the moment we met you in your home, to the two hour preparation session looking around the church and venue, to the actual day, we were blown away by your personal service, dedication and your real passion for the work that you do.  We also can't believe how much you achieved on the day in so little time and the fact that you weren't phased by my 'bridezilla' photography scrapbook was very impressive!  We will certainly recommend you to friends and family in the future and again thank you so much to a very special couple and an exceptional wedding photography supplier!  All the best for the future."  
Helen And Russell Laycock - Monk Fryston Hall.

"Thank you so much for photographing our wedding at Hazlewood Castle in August.  We have enjoyed every minute of working with you, it was a pleasure from beginning to end!  We can't imagine anyone more professional and we are truly grateful for such personal service.  It was great to receive such excellent customer service, a quality which I feel is increasingly rare in the country!!  We really appreciate you both taking the extra time to explain everything about the different packages and that you were willing to work within our budget, even though we decided to blow it due to having far too many gorgeous pictures to choose from!  At no point did we feel pressured into decisions or purchases and appreciated your invaluable advice regarding aspects of the storybook layout.  We met with many other photographers prior to choosing yourselves and I was beginning to become slightly overwhelmed and confused, however, as soon as we saw your work we knew it was exactly what we wanted!  You managed to obtain a perfect mix of candid and more traditional images which is exactly what we wanted.  The storybook is amazing and we are SO pleased that we picked the larger Graphistudio book!  We can't stop looking at it, it's the perfect memory of a perfect day and we will treasure it for many years to come!  The results of your efforts are spectacular and we cannot recommend you highly enough.  We'll see you again in June when you photograph our friends' wedding!!  PS Del absolutely loved the album.  He said you are amazing photographers.  I told him the subject helped but he wasn't having any of it, ha ha!!  He also liked the calendar, it was a nice surprise!  Thanks again."
Claire Sylvester - Hazlewood Castle.

"Just to say thank you ever so much for the beautiful wedding photographs and for all your help, advice and time.  The photographs are just what we were after and are a stunning reminder of our day.  We really couldn't have asked for a more professional service and for two such lovely people.  We can honestly say that our wedding day was the best day ever and you were such a big part of that.  We asked for memories of our big day, yet you have given us even more.  We can practically relive those moments just by looking at your photos.  We couldn't be happier.  Thanks again."  
Kathryn And Stephen Boyes - Wood Hall.

"We are writing to say a great big thank you for your exceptional photography service you provided for our wedding day at Allerton Castle, North Yorkshire.  From the moment we called to enquire about your service, you offered us all the help and advice we needed.  Once we had visited you and looked through your portfolio, we knew we wanted you to be our wedding photographers.  We loved your ideas and with such a magnificent wedding venue, the opportunites were endless.  You spent valuable time to understand our wishes and we worked together to ensure that we could make the most of the time available for photography during the day - which of course we did!  You are a perfect team - calm, patient and organised.  This undoubtedly ensured the smooth running of the photography on the day.  We didn't have to worry, as we knew you would keep a watchful eye on the time we had, and that you would do everything in your power to fulfull our wishes.  You made us and our guests feel at ease, as well as sharing in the fun of our day.  You made us feel special.  Upon our return from honeymoon, we received an extensive portfolio of proofs from which we selected our favourites.  This was a challenge as there were so many wonderful images to choose from!  However, with your guidance, together we decided on a collection of images, which resulted in a perfect wedding album, which we are thrilled with.  Everyone we proudly show it to comment on how fantastic it is.  The quality of the prints and the album we chose is exceptional.  We never felt pressured by you in any way and it was clear that you strived to ensure we were happy at every stage - regardless of how much time this would take to achieve.  Arranging a wedding can be a stressful time and we learnt that it is so important to find such fine qualities in a photographer.  It is due to you and your hard work that we have such valuable memories that we will keep for the rest of our lives.  Due to all of these reasons, we will highly recommend you at every opportunity.  Once again, we cannot thank you enough for all you have done to make this a thoroughly enjoyable and unforgettable experience for us.  We wish you every success in the future." 
Michael And Angela Davies - Allerton Castle.

"Stevan was over the moon with the finished article - we both think it's amazing.  It captures our day perfectly and beautifully and we are so pleased that we choose yourselves to share it with us.  We think you are a great couple and if anyone is looking for a photographer, we'll have no hesitations in recommending you.  We felt so much at ease with you both which helped immensely with our nerves on the day.  We thought your service was faultless, before, during and after."
Pauline Rhodes - Waterton Park And Walton Hall.

"Thank you very much for the time and effort you spent on our wedding day to make sure we get fabulous wedding photos.  We really appreciate it."  
Gemma And Rob Weston - Rogerthorpe Manor.

"A D Photography, what a team!  From the moment we first met Alex and Janet we knew that they were the only people we wanted to capture images of our special day.  A lot of photographers can take excellent photos but with A D Photography you get a whole lot more.  As well as the skill and imagination with which the photos were captured, Alex and Janet made us feel comfortable, at ease with them and at ease with the camera.  The preparation that went into the day and the subsequent after care service really sets them apart from your normal photography team, so much so that they give the impression that they are honoured to be involved in your day and that it's not just a business to them.  A set of stunning photos, memories to last a lifetime and two new people we are now happy to call friends."  
Andy And Sam Brook - Bagden Hall.

"You made our wedding day so special capturing memories that are priceless and could never be done again.  You made the most amazing storybook for us - everybody who sees it can't believe how unique and beautiful it is.  I will never forget how much of a big part of our wedding you were.  Thank you again for all your kindness in giving us a portrait session and being so nice to talk to.  You are two lovely people to know."
Gemma And Dave Bell - Oulton Hall.

Lisa And Phil Wilson - Oulton Hall.

"Just a note to express our thanks to you both for our beautiful wedding photos.  We were impressed by how professional and friendly you were, a sentiment that has been echoed by both our families.  On the day, nothing was too much trouble and we recognise that you were continually striving to achieve the best photos for us, to the extent that you kindly offered to return to the Cow & Calf to get the photographs we wanted.  Once again, thank you.  We will always remember you both being part of our day and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you in the future as your service before, during and after our wedding has been excellent."
