"As an unusually camera shy bride I was astounded by Alex's amazing ability to blend with our party and sneak natural and candid shots of our guests and us, unaware and in the moment. Even outdoors in the rain he got managed to get up close and personal without interfering with the atmosphere. We've spent hours post-wedding shedding happy tears and reminiscing over the beautiful memories he captured in wonderful full colour and black and white for us. By the end of the do he had truly become one of our guests and we are so happy Alex could be part of our magical day! Big love Alex! "

"Alex keeps a real subtle balance between being personable and professional at the same time not just on the big day but during all points if contact leading up to it. He instilled a confidence within us that he would deliver amazing photos and he did just that! we just trusted him to work his magic and enjoyed our day and it really shows just how much we did looking back on our pictures. He has a gift of capturing the emotive moments and will not miss anything! We had a Catholic white wedding while still acknowledging our Korean tradition followed by western style reception. Alex had no problem fitting in and mingling amongst all our guests in a day packed full of multiple cultures and vibes! He flowed through the day with us effortlessly and we felt so comfortable having him around. Super flexible and easy going guy with solid skills and passion for what he does. He is the guy we would pick again:) Thanks again Alex!!"

"Alex, we cannot thank you enough for bottling up our special day. Your relaxed personality and "in the moment" style made what could have been awkward posing so natural. Your experience in your profession shone through and we were so appreciative of your advice and artistic vision in finding the perfect photo spots. You were such a pleasure and so much fun to have around on the day, at times you were a complete ninja silently capturing every moment and others you were completely amongst it having fun with the guests whilst taking control to orchestrate every photo (with time to spare!). Thank you so much again Alex, we are so thankful we found you, your photos will be enjoyed for many years and generations to come :) "

"Alex came very highly recommended to us and we now know why! He was so easy to talk to, bounce ideas from and willing to work around whatever we needed. What I loved best was he was so involved in the wedding day and helped not only us but our guests feel at ease with photos. Our guests and family were so surprised that we hadn't known him prior to needing a wedding photographer. Alex took the time to get to know us as a couple prior to the wedding which helped him personalize our photos to suit us perfectly. We couldn't be happier with our photos and will cherish them forever. Thank you Alex, you really are the best!"

"Instantly, through the email and skype communication back and forth, we knew Alex was the guy we wanted to capture our special day. His personable, outgoing and laid back nature makes it feel like you've been mates forever. James and I aren't huge fans of having our photo taken - especially the sentimental type taken at a wedding - and Alex made us feel at ease and entirely comfortable. All our guests and other people involved in our wedding day commented on how awesome he was, my hair and makeup ladies in particular noted he was one of the best they had seen. He is very flexible, happy to roll with the changes that may occur and yet guided and directed us to ensure we got the best images of our day. We were blown away with our photos; the variety, quantity and quality - all exceptional. He truly went beyond all our expectations and is a very talented and charismatic photographer" Olivia & James
"In writing this testimonial, I went back and had a look through our photos. Each one capturing a special moment of the day, of us and our family and guests. I still look at our mini shoot in the park with slight embarrasment as I’m not one for being the focal attention and infront of the lens, yet still, I love how they turned out. And I can honestly say, we cannot be happier with our choice of having you as our photographer for our special day. Your cool, relaxed and warm personality helped in all of that, with the posed shots and the candid ones. Many times I wonder, “when did he take that photo?!”, because I didn’t even realise you were around at that particular moment. We loved having you around with your relaxed, bright, happy charm, all the while being a true professional. And so I say “thank you sooo much Alex”, for capturing many fond memories, we are soo thankful to have found you, and can’t wait to have your photos printed and framed in our new home."

"Alex was fantastic. I found him through a photographer who had photographed at Crear previously but was already booked for our date. Alex is a really well known wedding photographer in NZ but had just moved to London and was happy to travel to Scotland (and anywhere else in Europe!)
I honestly can’t speak highly enough of Alex – we first met up with him for a drink (which turned to several drinks) and by the time it was our wedding day it was as if a friend was taking the photos. He capture moments we didn’t even see and didn’t tell us to do anything posed or fake. Both Ryan and I hate being centre of attention and Alex did a fantastic job of capturing the natural moments between us, our friends and family" Emma & Ryan, Scotland.
"Having Alex as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for our wedding. He was excitable, friendly, relaxed and came through with some amazing photography.
Our bridal photos were an enjoyable experience and Alex really took control, organising everyone and getting some awesome shots, neither of us wanted our photos to drag out and Alex was great at getting them done quickly and stress free (the most important thing on the day). We even had time for a few glasses of wine at the end of the shoot! Once the ceremony was over, Alex mingled with the crowd and seemed to really enjoy himself, this made for relaxed, friendly photos and let him get some really nice candid photos of our guests and us unwinding. We love you Alex."
