From start to finish we had a fantastic experience. Such care was take to make sure that everyone was relaxed and enjoying them self making the end result breath taking. Must have a huge thank you for fulfilling a truly strange request which lead to a meaningful and perfect picture. I would recommend SSPS to anyone looking to capture a special moment with their family.
Not just for girls! Prior to booking, I'd been a bit unsure whether I'd be a good fit for a fashion makeover photoshoot, but I needn't have worried. Andy went above and beyond to accommodate me and my wishes, using and embracing all the outfits I'd brought along with me, including those I'd just brought as back-up options. His assistants were a joy to work with too. More than anything, I just enjoyed being pampered and feeling important for a couple of hours - the photos were just a bonus … but still a very pleasant bonus - amazing, high-resolution digital images in a variety of contexts that I will treasure for years to come.
I recently went for a photo shoot for my 60th Birthday. Andy & his team put me totally at ease & the results were fantastic !! My Husband & I are really pleased with the beautiful photos he has produced to such a high quality & totally professional. I would really recommend this studio if you want photographs for a special occasion or for a portfolio. Many thanks again & I'll be back again, maybe for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary.
we were looked after and made to feel at ease
What wonderful experience. So welcoming and friendly, nothing too much trouble. Took our dogs for a photo shot and both Andy and Sophie were absolutely brilliant with both of them. If you’re looking for a professional photographer, I would definitely recommend Seven Springs Studio
Had a photo shoot for myself, husband, and 2 children. After it being postponed twice, due to covid lockdowns, I was starting to feel anxious about it. However, I needn't have worried! We were instantly made at ease once we arrived and my eldest (2yo) thoroughly enjoyed herself. Andy seems to have a way with children and even the 5mo behaved! The pictures he got were amazing and even made my husband well up. I'm glad we did the photo shoot as there are pictures we will now have forevermore and they show the true bond we have with our children.
