Every time I look back at the weddings I have photographed I realise how incredibly blessed I am to meet so many wonderful people every year and how lucky I am to be able to capture memories for them in a way that makes them so happy!
Here are some of the wonderful words my wedding photography clients have said about my work…
“San! We knew the photographs would be amazing, but you have surpassed all our expectations completely. They are just beautiful And the little parcel is the cutest, absolutely love it and definitely worth the wait! I literally have no idea which ones we will put in an album because they are all so brilliant! Thank you so so much for everything, you have given us some beautiful memories of our day! xxx”

"Sanshine = better than sunshine! We couldn’t have been happier with the photos! We have a great mix of formal/family, candid, and some stunning funny posed shots.
I am not in general a very smiley person, so I was surprised to see I was smiling in the photos, and even laughing in some of them! I realize now the reason for all the smiles is that I was bantering back and forth with Sanshine while she was taking the photos. Although she was running around grabbing every angle, everything just felt very easy and relaxed. Even during the formal photographs Sanshine had everyone in stitches laughing and that shows through in the photos. It was amazing!
Our wedding day went by far too fast and I was surprised at some of the things we missed – but everything is there in the photos: a benefit to having two photographers. Some other points that are worth mentioning : 1) We ran over our allotted time but Sanshine was very flexible in making sure we got all the shots we wanted. 2) I was constantly complaining on the day about the weather because it wasn’t as sunny as I had hoped, but Sanshine calmed me down by telling me how the photos would still turn out right. And they did!
To summarize….. when you think about it, there’s very little remaining of your wedding day one month on. The flowers have gone, the guests have flown home, you are back at work. About the only thing that remains is the photos, so I think it is a great investment to get the absolute best, and for that I would recommend Sanshine every time."

“San is the most passionate photographer I have ever met. She is a perfectionist when it comes to getting ‘the’ shot. Her and her husband make a great team. I really feel they got to know exactly what my husband and I wanted from our wedding photos. We had a wonderful engagement shoot and consultation. We spent hours chatting, felt like we got to know each other very quickly. We asked for romantic, non-staged, glamorous and London photos. Even if together this didn’t make a whole lot of sense, they created an album for us that was exactly that. They are the most romantic photos I have ever seen and I’m so pleased that we have such beautiful records of our perfect day!”

“San and her team were fantastic! She was dedicated from the start, you couldn’t ask for a more hands-on and involved photographer. The pictures she took are amazing. It was wonderful working with her and knowing our wedding was going to have some great shots from it.”
Will & Erin
“We count ourselves very lucky to have had San and her husband as photographers for our wedding. From our first visit with her, it was clear that she is very passionate about her work and that she has very high attention to detail. Her idea of having a pre-wedding photoshoot (to make us feel more relaxed in front of the camera on the big day) was genius and highly recommended. On the wedding day itself, we were all relaxed knowing that we were in capable hands. The photos she took from our wedding are absolutely amazing and you can tell that a lot of work had gone in putting the final touches on the photos.”
Ario & Natalie
“We came across San’s website and fell in love with the images she creates, from the moment you meet San you can see the passion and attention to detail she puts into her work. We had an engagement shoot with San, and as we are not generally very comfortable in front of a camera it was a great way to get used to being photographed. She was extremely professional yet personable and showed a genuine interest in us and our preferences. She offered great advice and suggestions, helping us to decide on the style we would like for our wedding photos, as well as planning for the day itself.
When it came to the wedding day, having San there was like having a friend there looking out for you, she went above and beyond our expectations. San and Michael make a great team and ensured they got all the special shots we had requested. We have since received our beautifully presented, personalised wedding box and we are delighted with the beautiful images. Our friends and family have been exceedingly impressed with the quality of the pictures and we have received many compliments. San was able to capture the beautiful moments from our special day and we are eternally grateful to her for giving us such stunning pictures to look back on. We will be lifelong fans of her work and would not hesitate to call on her again to capture any future special moments!”

“Amazing! Ben and I love the pictures! I have to say that we had such a good time with you guys and you really helped to make this photoshoot easy. We are looking forward to having more photos taken by you in the future, once the baby boy is born : ) I will make sure to recommend you to anyone who is looking to have photos taken. You really did help to take the edge off of the awkwardness of having photos taken. Even Ben enjoyed it, even though he wouldn’t admit it. Thank you so much again!”
Diana & Ben
“We contacted Sanshine Photography to photograph our wedding as we were recommended them by a friend. Our first meeting was very informal and friendly, San was very easy to talk to and made me and my husband feel at ease, she listened to our ideas for our wedding photos and was really accommodating. Right from the start San made us feel at ease and we came away from the meeting confident that we had made the right choice and really excited! Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful, San and Michael captured us perfectly and took beautiful formal and informal shots of us and our wedding party. The photos that we now have from our wedding day are absolutely breathtaking and we will treasure them for many years to come. The personal touches were also very much appreciated especially the slide show to our wedding song. I would highly recommend Sanshine photography. Many Thanks!”

“We used Sanshine Photography for our wedding in January 2015 and couldn’t be happier with the photos. I had spent a lot of time researching for the right photographer as I wanted the day to be captured like a fairytale; San created this and more. The photos look like they belong in a wedding magazine and all my friends and family are so impressed with them. The work she puts into each individual picture is amazing. I would also recommend the canvas guest book, this was a lovely addition to the day and it’s a great way of displaying kind messages from your loved ones.”

"When my, now, husband proposed to me two years ago I knew that she was my only certainty – Sanshine would be at my wedding capturing the most important moment of my life.
San went above and beyond even before the day. She asked about the colour scheme, if there were any elements of the wedding that where important and needed to be captured, and unlike other photographers (who will try to get as much money from you as possible) – she pointed out the shots that wouldn’t really be needed and those that would be really important. On the day she was the first face I saw as I exited the wedding car with my father, she was a breath of fresh air and my nerves melted away – she was a calming force, and made us laugh.
During the service I was completely unaware of her presence, but I have seen the pictures from the ceremony, and she was there, capturing the moments you would be unaware of – and the shots are stunning. She did not overpower a single element of the ceremony! San did warn me of the time (our service was late, so we were losing light) and ever the perfectionist she directed those that needed and managed to get us into the gardens for our group shots. This is where Sanshine shone! My family were disorganised, and she organised them, something I as the bride couldn’t even do. She wanted perfection from every shot, she really cared about us, and that was so clear!
Her love, as well as our own, is captured in every picture. She did not stop, and since the wedding every single guest has commented on Sanshine and Michael, their glow, professionalism and attention to detail. If you are trawling sites now looking for the perfect photographer – STOP! I can suggest no better to capture the best day of your life! Thank You San!!!"

“We knew that San would take some good pictures of our son’s wedding because we had seen the photographs she had taken at other events. What we didn’t expect was the way both she and Mike worked flat out during the whole day to make sure that we got the shots we asked for and the ones that we didn’t know we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Many of the guests commented on their hard work, and also their unobtrusive tact in getting some truly magical natural pictures. We love the album of pictures and the slideshow. The two grooms are delighted to have their day captured so beautifully. I would certainly recommend Sanshine Photography to anyone who is planning a special event!”
“Dear San, we just picked up the photos from the post office and they are absolutely fantastic, thank you so much! So many lovely pictures of people smiling! The presentation box is fantastic! It’s been a pleasure to spend time with you and Michael, you both did a brilliant job, so thank you so much again!”

“Graeme and I both already knew San through dancing and were aware that she was a competent photographer. Just to be sure we went to see some other photographers and their work, and we realised very quickly that the quality, finish and precious moments that San had captured in her portfolio were head and shoulders above the rest. Once we had decided to go with San, she took time to ask us about all the details of our wedding, our personalities, theme, colour scheme and how everything tied together.
She was very thorough, and I was impressed by this attention to detail, which shows on all our wedding photographs. On the day San and Mike were very warm and friendly with everyone, putting both Graeme and I and our guests at ease. They were very unobtrusive which allowed them to get some genuinely personal, spur of the moment photographs. We went for a vintage theme and wanted the post production of the photos to reflect this.
My husband has a photographic science degree so he was very precise and San was able to deliver to even his exacting standards! We are thrilled with our photographs, they are soft and warm and beautiful and really hold the essence of the day.
Many many people have commented on how wonderful the photographs are, and I know they will become an heirloom for our future family. I would not hesitate to recommend SanShine photography for any occasion and I hope to use San again to capture other important milestones in our life ahead.”
