Kind Words

Over the years, my wedding and portrait clients have been very kind and sent me various messages of thanks. Here are just a few of them:

Wedding Clients:


“Finding the right photographer for our wedding day was one of the things which was most important to us when planning our wedding. We had ruled many options out because I am very picky! Then we found Nick & what more can I say? He was absolutely fabulous, not just on the day but also on the run up to the wedding, answered every email and query we had and on the actual day was more than we could have asked for from a wedding photographer. And of course most importantly gave us the best set of wedding photos we could have asked for!

Our pre wedding shoot was good fun, it’s definitely worth doing to put you at ease in front of the camera for the big day. On the day Nick made the photography part of the day really good fun which meant because all our guests were laughing and having fun he managed to capture the most natural wedding photos, which means we have a fantastic, very natural and beautiful set of photos.

I honestly could not recommend Nick at Parkershots highly enough. He is professional, reliable and helpful. And most importantly gives you the most incredible photographs!

Thanks Nick!” Kirsty & Rod

“Nick was our wedding photographer and was absolutely fantastic. He was very friendly and helpful throughout the whole process from initial planning meetings to final album production. My wife and I trusted Nick with the choice of photo locations on the wedding day and he did an amazing job taking us around the venue grounds (Penshurst Place) to create beautiful photos of our special day. We highly recommend Nick if you want someone who is both professional and friendly.” – Paul & Melody

“When it came to finding a wedding photographer I was slightly dreading it. There is so much planning and decision making with weddings it can all become very overwhelming. I took a very wedding wise friend to a local wedding fair and luckily came across Nick. His photo’s stood out from everyone else’s and we were in awe of how beautiful everyone looked. Even my Mother was impressed and thought he might even manage to get a good photo of her!

We met Nick before the wedding day for a pre wedding shoot. We were not too sure what to expect from this. Both myself and my partner are pretty camera shy. But Nick made it effortless and very enjoyable. It was great to have a test run of knowing how to stand (even if we did giggle through the whole thing) and give feedback about what we liked before the big day.

On the days itself we hardly knew Nick was there, as he mingled in to get the shots throughout the day.

Seeing the photo’s for the first time, when the day itself whizzed by so quickly for us, was amazing. All the photo’s were just stunning, the colour, quality and clarity look too good to be true. I couldn’t get over how handsome my, now husband, looked in his suit. And considering he was petrified about the day somehow Nick got some completely relaxed pre service photo’s of him. (which are my favourite)

All our family and friends thought the photo’s telling the story of the day were gorgeous, we couldn’t be happier. (even if we did end up paying to have most of them printed!!) And my wedding wise friend even booked Nick for some baby portraits!” – Lucy and John Rebello

“Nick is so passionate about what he does and it really showed in the amazing photos he took for our wedding. We didn’t want just the standard, traditional wedding shots so Nick went the extra mile to really tailor the photos to us and to think outside the box. He has the knowledge and ability to not only create technically beautiful images, but more importantly, to really capture the moment – the character of a person, an emotion, an atmosphere. He has an amazing way of relaxing everyone he works with so his photos are real and heartfelt. Thank you Nick, you really captured every moment of our wedding beautifully!” – Natalie and Mustafa Hasan

“A true genius behind the lens!

Nick is the most friendly and passionate photographer I have ever come across, creating for us the most beautiful tailored wedding shots i’ve ever seen. Nick listened and spoke to us more like a good friend than a hired photographer.

As photography dullards, myself and the Mrs could not put into words what exactly we wanted, Nick, as previously mentioned, listened, and gained an idea of the sort of people we are and tailored the photograph style to suit. He produced a perfect mix of pictures that will be cherished for the rest of our lives.

I would recommend to anyone, Nicks photo’s really do tell a story and perhaps more importantly, he makes you feel comfortable throughout the process.” – Steve & Sophie Moore

“The photos are amazing!! Our wedding was supposed to be an informal gathering of friends and family and we didn’t plan on having a photographer and posing for ‘traditional wedding shots’. What a mistake that would have been! Nick made us feel so comfortable and relaxed that we found ourselves loving the whole experience and we’ve got some wonderful natural photographs to remind us of our special day. We particularly wanted lots of pictures of our guests, and Nick captured everyone beautifully; it makes us smile every time we look at them. Thank you Nick!” – Sharon and Geoff Barnes

“I usually hate being in front of the camera and dislike any photo’s of me, Nik has totally changed that! They are beautful, I didn’t want just the traditional group pictures and Nik took everything I said on board and created the most amazing shots to create a story of our day.

Not only was I pleased with the photos but I was very impressed by the way in which he rounded the guests up!

Fantastic photos, friendly but professional service – 5 stars all round!” – Hayley & Graeme Spicer

“Anyone can see the photographs are excellent, but Nick’s main asset is his politeness. He was able to direct all guests efficiently but patiently so at no point was anyone made to feel as if they were following orders. I received plenty of complimentary remarks regarding his manners.” – David and Philippa Ellis

“Straight after we booked our venue we started looking for a photographer. We didn’t know where to begin, there were so many to choose from. We found Nick on Google and met with him, we felt so comfortable, and although it seemed a gamble to choose a photographer that had not been recommended, we are so glad we did.

Our wedding pictures are amazing! Nick really caught the emotion of our day and looking at our pictures a few weeks later bought all our wonderful memories of the day back.
We would definitely recommend Nick – you won’t regret choosing him.”
– Kelly & Rob (Bradbourne House, Kent)

“My wife and I booked Nick for our wedding in July 2012 having, been attracted to his work. We particularly liked his approach to more formal pictures and his ability to capture informal moments. Everyone says that you will book a photographer that you feel most comfortable with and from the instant we met Nick we knew that we could trust him to ensure our day was set in pictures.

Subsequent to our fist meeting we met Nick at the venue so that he could familiarise himself with the surroundings and then had an engagement photo shoot. This gave us the opportunity to comment of what style of pictures we preferred.

On our wedding day Nick’s expertise was exceptional, so much so that we have found it a struggle to select our wedding pictures given the sheer number of quality images that Nick took.

We are so happy that we got the selection of the photographer spot on and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others (friends of ours who get married next year and attended our wedding were so impressed with Nick’s work that they have booked him as well!).” – Claire & Mark (Winters Barn, Kent)

“OMG!!!Going through the pictures made me cry! So beautiful! You captured the whole day how I remember it and much more as I didn’t get to remember everything 🙂 I want to do it all again now 🙂 Absolutely amazing. Thank you million times and more 🙂

Nick, I can’t put into words how fantastic our pictures are and what an amazing job you did. They tell the whole story of our wedding day and more. You managed to capture moments we somehow managed to miss and we are grateful for that. You made us feel at ease and were very professional. You showed us how much you cared about our day (pre-wedding consultation and aftercare) and we knew we couldn’t have chosen better. Thank you, again for all your hard work and understanding.” – Martina & Alex (Ashdown Park Hotel, East Sussex)

“Nick is hands down the best photographer we could have hoped to find. He listened to what we wanted and delivered above and beyond our expectations. The intimacy of our wedding along with his subtle imaginative flair came through in every photograph; as close to perfection as we could have hoped for.” – Scott & Shalini – (The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells, Kent)

“Nick’s Photography perfectly covered our wedding day. He was considerate and understanding of my wife’s illness. Many of our guests commented on how many first names he remembered, how quickly he composed the shots, and when mingling, he obtained some stunning natural pictures.

The unique art design and quality of the album brings to life that memorable day. Each double page of the album tells its own story of a certain part of our wonderful wedding.

Many family members, wedding guests and friends who have viewed the album, said “that’s the best wedding album I’ve ever seen” and that’s down to Nick’s professionalism. It was a shame that my wife didn’t live to see the completed wedding album, but for me, it will bring back every minute of that very special day, forever!! I will always be so grateful to Nick for all he did for us.” – Nigel & Kim (The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells, Kent)

“Thank you so much for the wonderful photos you took on our Wedding day.

It was an absolute pleasure having you take photos at our Wedding, even though we hardly knew you were there! We really appreciate the time you spent with us before the big day and how you listened and took on board what we wanted.

The quality of the images is amazing and we are thrilled to bits with our photo book – it brought back so many lovely memories of our day!

Thank you so much for being for professional and patient with everyone, but most of all for doing such a great job!” – Clair & Matthew (Mercure Hotel, Pembury)

“It took us far to long to choose the pictures that we wanted for the album. This is testament to the fantastic job that Nick did. He provided us with a large variety of photos that covered all aspects of our day.

During the day he was discreet, professional and extremely accommodating. His manner put both ourselves and our guests at ease. Nick gave helpful suggestions from the first contact we had with him. He took into account both our budget and taste.

We would not hesitate in recommending Nick to anyone!” – Zoe & James (Buxted Park, East Sussex)

“On first meeting Nick I knew we were going to have some fantastic photos – his portfolio is just amazing, and he totally seemed to understand what we wanted.

The whole process was so enjoyable and he accommodated all our/my whims – even at six am the day before the wedding as the weather forecast loomed! He came up with some fabulous alternative shots should the raindrops fall, and so the ‘funky wellies’ were purchased! (thankfully they weren’t needed after all!).

On the day his ideas were just fabulous, along with super friendliness and professionalism – we are so so pleased with all of the photos, just choosing them has been the hard bit! Best of luck with your wedding this year Nick, hope you get a photographer as good as we did!” Love Zoe & James xx (Caledonian Club, Mayfair)

“Nick is a wonderful talented photographer with lots of experience and attention to detail.

He met us a couple of times before our wedding and on the day it felt like having a friend around rather than someone you hired to do a job. Plenty of guests were also very impressed.

The pictures have been beautifully edited to perfection and we couldn’t have asked for any more. Nick designed an album for us, which will forever remind us of the day.

We would recommend him to anybody, who is intending to get stunning pictures of their big day.” – Kieran & Ines (Royal Wells Hotel, Tunbridge Wells, Kent)

“We have just received our wedding photos and we are thrilled beyond belief! They are so artistic and beautiful and we will treasure them for the rest of our lives!

Looking at the way you captured our family and friends’ emotions and the happiness of the day really lets us relive each moment. We were worried when we first started searching for a photographer that we’d end up with a bunch of posed, boring photos, but you certainly put our fears to rest.

The photos of us look like they should be in a magazine, totally glamorous and stunning!! Also, we think you’re a great guy…really personable and friendly with an non-invasive style…even some of our guests commented on how much they liked you!

Absolutely brilliant job and we will be recommending you whenever we can.” – Rob & Karen (The High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells)

“It was an absolute pleasure having Nick there to photograph our wedding. The photos are stunning, and Nick made us feel completely relaxed and at ease. His method is very unobtrusive and calm, and many of our family and friends commented on how friendly and professional he was.

We’re so glad we asked Nick to be our photographer – there isn’t a photograph we are not pleased with, and he really captured our special day beautifully. Whenever we need a photographer we would definitely ask Nick again!” – Kieran & Claire

“When we first met Nick, he immediately put our minds at ease. He didn’t bombard me with lists of shots and price lists, he just listened to what we would like, whilst gently offering his expert advise!

He was respectful too of our budget suggesting ideas and timings that worked for both of us. On the day Nick did an amazing job, he was discreet, fun, polite and managed to capture all the extra little moments that you miss. This has made it impossible to choose photos!!

Thank you, we really couldn’t have asked for anyone better!” – Charlotte & Olli

“Nick made up a tailor-made package for us for our wedding, listening to our requirements and taking care to fulfil them.

The end result was excellent value and the quality of the photos is fantastic. He was a pleasure to be with on our wedding day and was always courteous, polite and respectful and we would have no hesitation in recommending him.” – Dave and Carol Smith (Mercure Hotel, Pembury)

“Both my Wife and I are extremely pleased with the wedding photos that Nick and his assistant took. They look amazing and we can’t wait to see the printed results.

Everytime we show them to our friends they are very impressed. On the day, it was very easy taking the photos with Nick, he expertly guided us each time for the special shot that he wanted to take. Our favourite shots are in front of the logs that Nick found at the back of the hotel and also where he has blended black and white and colour together.
Overall, we are very pleased and happy with the work Nick and his team did for us on our special day.”
– Mirka & Cormac (Slovakia)

“My wife and I were delighted with our Parkershots wedding photographs – the images are beautiful. Nick did a great job in managing to get the shots we wanted whilst not being too obtrusive.

I would (and have!) recommended Nick to others for their weddings!” – Phil & Jacqui


Portrait Clients:

“Thank you so much for the beautiful family portraits you composed and printed for us at Christmas.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, despite the freezing temperatures in Dunorlan Park.

The results are just what we wanted. Everyone is happy with their ‘look’, which is amazing to have pleased a teenage, 4 adult women and a non-smiler male.

Your patience with us on the day, and your professional but thoughtful manner throughout the process were much appreciated. We are delighted with both the price and the quality of the finished result and have recommended you to many others already.” – The Symons Family

” We absolutely love the pictures that Nick took for us. He took the time to understand exactly what we wanted to capture in the images, and put lots of time and effort into turning them into fantastic artwork for our wall.

We chose Nick purely based on seeing the quality of his images online. His images spoke for themselves – they are excellent, but equally important we found that he is a lovely guy and very easy to work with. He really managed to make our baby feel at ease, happy, and engaged so that he could capture some beautiful expressions.

I thoroughly recommend him” – Sue

“You’ve done such a wonderful job of capturing all the things we asked. I have no idea how on earth we’re going to choose. I like the dark and light contrast equally and I don’t think there’s one that we don’t like.

I can’t thank you enough. You really put us both at ease and that has come through in the quality of the images. I’ve got lots of friends at a similar stage in their lives and I’ll certainly recommend you!

Thanks again” – Hayley

” We enjoyed a fun photoshoot with our dog Abbi and were delighted with the professional results. It was very difficult to make a choice.

We couldn’t fault the service that Nick provided and he was always on hand with advice to help us achieve our perfect portrait” – Brenda

“I have been impressed by the professionalism of Parkershots photography, and Nick has real commitment to his attention to detail. He’s taken some amazing shots of my family over the last 18 months and I’d happily recommend his services to others.

Thanks Nick for the great photos which I’ll cherish for years to come.” – Jo

“I contacted Nick with the view to having a beautiful photograph taken of our children to give to my husband as a surprise present for his 40th birthday celebrations.

Nick was extremely professional from the onset. The photoshoot itself was relaxed and he was great with the children which meant he could take a variety of photos that really captured their personalities.

Nick was extremely efficient in providing a very impressive selection of photos and it was impossible to choose just one, as I originally intended! The finished prints were excellent quality and my husband was delighted.

Nick provided a flexible, friendly service and offered competitive prices. We will certainly be booking another portrait session in the future.” – Lucy

“I wasn’t sure what to expect taking my 12 year old son to an official photoshoot but it was actually an incredibly natural and fun experience for both of us.

Nick was relaxed, efficient, and professional throughout the session and I would enthusiastically recommend him to others for family portrait work. Thanks again Nick” – Caroline

“Thank you so much for the amazing portraits of Jacob, Grace, & Ralph.

The way you got all three to relax was wonderful and the result was some beautiful shots to treasure forever. Also, thank you for taking the time to put Ralph’s image on Daddy’s t-shirt – it is a classic!

We will be back for another shoot soon. Thank you.” – Martha

“We booked a family photo shoot for six of us, including two grand children, plus one dog. The children were only 6 and 7 months old in January of this year.

We found Nick to be very patient and took his time, especially with the children.

We were delighted with the pictures.” – Rosina

“Nick did some lovely photographs of our family – some individual portraits and group photos. He was great with the children and put every one at their ease, and the finished photographs clearly show this.

The photographs capture the very best of our children in a relaxed and natural way. Thank you Nick, we will definitely be coming back to see you soon.” – Joanna
