Customer Testimonials

My husband and I used Guy Milnes Photogaphy for our wedding earlier this year. We really couldn't fault his service from start to finish. Guy was receptive to our wishes and gave sound advice and suggestions both at our initial meetings and on the wedding day itself. On the day he was really flexible and efficient. He worked hard and produced so many fantastic photos which we and our families will always cherish. He organised for us to have a CD and photoboooks which are presented beautifully. He produced a range of photos including group, portrait and reportage photos. Guests commented on how friendly he was without disrupting the natural flow of the day. We would (and have!) recommend Guy to our friends. Thank you! May and William (!)

We asked Guy to take photos for my Dad's 70th having been impressed by what we saw and read on his website. We were not disappointed - Guy is a very unobtrusive photographer who excels at taking spontaneous 'natural' photos. We were enormously impressed and I will be strongly recommending him in the future.

Amazing!!! The more we look at them the more we love them, and we were very impressed from the beginning so that's saying a lot! You made our day so special, such a patient and pleasant photographer, great personality - just put everyone at ease. Thanks for working non stop and giving us such a great selection of memories. We are so happy. Matthew and Jacqueline Robbins

We used Guy for a small and intimate second marriage at the end of last year at Chelsea Old Town Hall. We only used him for a limited time slot as we were only 7 people, but in that time he got lots of really nice shots. He worked well with my children also, getting the best out of them and the end result was both a very quick turnaround and of very high quality.

We used Guy for a small ceremony second marriage at the end of last year. We only used him for a limited time slot (2-3 hours I think) as we were only 7 people, but in that time he got lots of really nice shots. He worked well with my children also, getting the best out of them and the end result was both a very quick turnaround and of very high quality. The fact that he was able to offer less than a full day meant he was an excellent choice for our requirements.

Guy photographed our wedding for us in May and we couldn't be more happy with his work. We found him online and were impressed with his photos so we called him. His response time was super speedy and gave us all the information we needed, which made us feel comfortable with him from the start. The moments he captured on camera, of our special day, were absolutely perfect. He made sure he knew what we wanted and subtly snapped away. We now have beautiful pictures to keep forever. Thank you Guy!

Guy was absolutely fantastic from the moment we met him. He captured every wonderful moment of the day and was very discrete and professional, but also a lot of fun! His photographs are beautiful and we couldn't be happier with him. His service is outstanding and we will be recommending him to everyone who we know getting married. He took such beautiful natural photographs and did everything we asked for. He made a stunning photo book and took so many photos, if only we could display them all! The best wedding photographs we have seen (he also did our friends wedding before so we knew they were amazing). Can't recommend highly enough!

As a couple who are not keen to pose in front of the camera Guy captured some amazing pictures of our wedding. He is friendly and approachable and answered all of our questions quickly. He delivered everything to a high standard and we would fully recommend.

Guy was the photographer for our wedding in Oxford back in October 2016 and he was everything we hoped he would be. He was professional throughout the process from our initial email and phone conversation through to the day itself, and was particularly helpful in talking us through and pointing out important things to consider on the day. His communication throughout was top-notch. His documentary style was exactly what we were looking for and we're so happy with the natural shots he got of the day. We hardly noticed him and we never felt like we needed to do forced poses, he just popped up in the right place at the right time to get the perfect picture. We would recommend Guy to anyone!

From Our Website

I want my photography clients to feel relaxed at all times, from the planning right up to the day of the shoot itself and beyond. I always go the extra mile for my customers as it is important to me that you feel you have made the right choice. After all, you are the people that allow me to carry on doing what I love to do each day. Taken at a wedding at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, London: A dynamic example of what my photography is about: After the Best Man's speech (by the Groom's brother), the pair share a moment which shows the love between them.

That's me there with my lovely little boy, George (he's grown now! - and my hair's been cut.). It kind of sums up perfectly who I am and I think that's what photography should do. That photo could help us to get to know each other which is important as I could be playing a part in the most special day of your life! I can fully empathise and will try to see things through your eyes. I realise that everyone is different and most people haven't hired a professional photographer before, so I'm here to guide you through the process.

Urban London photography has long been a favourite of street and documentary photographers. Many different elements can be pulled together and utilised to produce some fantastic photographs with or without people. From the architectural backdrops to the people that make up the city, urban photography has much to offer and much to say. Photographing in the city of London is especially popular with newly-engaged couples looking to hire a photographer to shoot their engagement, pre-wedding or proposal photo session.
