One of the best photographers I’ve met. More than happy to go the extra mile to make your day special. Excellent planning and organisation on the day. I had the privilege of Steve as my photographer of my wedding and all the party commented on how well organised Steve was and he was very subtle not too in your face like some other photographers. I’ve been lucky to see a sneak preview of some of the photos and I have never seen pictures like it. Please can everyone spread the word about this excellent company

(emailed testimonial)

Your photos are comprehensive in coverage of the investiture and all of them are superlative in clarity and colour.

Your presence was unobtrusive and your charges very reasonable.

I recommend your services unreservedly.

Steve attended my business premises and instantly understood what we were trying to achieve. He took all the time necessary and spent additional time to that agreed to ensure he got it right. Extremely helpful and friendly and will definitely be using him again for future business and personal photography. Made everybody feel incredibly comfortable when taking photos

Natalie Saunter

Top service, will be recommending to everyone. Many thanks


We used Embracing Memories for a photo shoot with our children. Steve was fantastic with the kids, remained patient and calm and got down to their level to help them understand the positions he needed them in for photos.

The quality of the pictures was fantastic and choosing the “final 3″ was more difficult than picking the outfits for a wedding.

Would definitely highly recommend to anyone for any occasion. If the results we got from an hour session in a studio were to go on, a longer period in a big wide world will be amazing.

Creative, intuitive, considerate to what photos I wanted he was able to produce this and also introduce his own ideas – as well as the kid’s ideas too.

Can’t wait to do it again! Thanks Steve.

Hi Steve, thank you so much for coming to our Ladies Night and taking some fantastic photos of all of our guests in their finery.

You even went that one step further and offered our guests a very personal service. Would recommend you 100% and hope to use you again in the future. Thank you. Leigh-Anne

Fantastic personality really great with my children. The photos are lovely and i was given a good selection all on disc as a special offer. A very happy customer I will be back in touch thank you.


Just viewed the photos from Mike and Maryanne’s wedding 21/6/14. Steve has done a wonderful job of capturing the day for them. He was very professional and well organised and not at all intrusive. There are lots of amazing shots that an amateur wouldn’t be able to create. Well done and would certainly recommend your services.



Thank you for Matilda’s amazing cake smash pictures, they are exactly what we wanted and so much more!!
We had such a good time and were made to feel very comfortable.
Will definitely recommend to everyone!
