I had a great experience with Andy for a photo shoot for my dog. It was so easy to book a shoot, the shoot itself was seamless and both Andy and his assistant were great with our dog and got some great, diverse shots. Couldn’t be happier with the results, I really recommend using Andy.
Originally booked a new-born photoshoot for my baby who was born in the second lockdown. Needed to rebook a couple of times due to further lockdowns, Andy was very accommodating with dates and timings. Very easy to find the studio, Andy and his team made myself, my husband and baby feel at ease and welcome. My baby can sometimes give people a hard stare of uncertainty, Andy was great with her, pulling funny faces and noises to keep her attention on the camera. At the viewing of the photo's, Andy presented them on a slideshow with beautiful music, made me cry. The pictures were absolutely beautiful and cannot wait to get our finished products. I would highly recommend Seven Springs Photography Studios.
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.
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.
we were looked after and made to feel at ease
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.
