"Quite simply Toni is a genius with a camera. She captures the most incredible moments without being intrusive and somehow manages to make even the most camera shy person feel comfortable in front of the lens.

We hired Toni to do our wedding photos and every single one of our 600+ photos is fabulously shot, but more importantly really tells the story of the day. We have loved re-living the day through Toni’s eyes and we could not be happier.

She is the consummate professional and made sure she knew exactly what we wanted (as well as what we didn’t want) and put us totally at ease with the whole process. It is testament to her skill that we honestly couldn’t tell where she was at various points during the service and yet she somehow managed to capture some incredibly intimate photos.

We would recommend Toni to anyone and everyone who wants an beautiful and honest set of photos."

Mrs Rachel Swain

 "Toni very generously offered (OK, I cornered her and asked!) to take photographs of my Year 2 Class on a trip to The Heavens to mark the end of the school year (with a class of children that I have a very soft spot for). I knew that Toni would capture the children in all their gorgeousness with her very natural style of photography, and I was not disappointed. She was able to capture the beauty of the children at play and the photographs really show them being free and, well, being children; children running down hills, hand in hand, laughing and swinging on a rope swing with pure glee on their faces.

 

Nothing was too much trouble and I loved that she didn't want 'staged' or 'forced' photographs. She absolutely captured their personalities and beauty. On the last day of the summer term the children and their parents viewed her photographs, there were many compliments and tears at the images she had captured (and that was just me).

 

I would not hesitate to recommend Toni if you are looking for a natural, talented and all round lovely person to capture a special moment for you. "

"After seeing some of Toni's other work and the way she captured people in such a natural way, there was no doubt that we wanted to book her for our wedding.  It was a small low key event but I wanted the day captured to tell the story, rather than staged shots.  She captured our family and friends beautiful, even those that really do not like their photo taken!  We absolutely adore our photo collection that Toni created."

"Toni came and did a short photo shoot of us early on whilst we were putting on one of our club nights and got some really great intimate shots …one of the shots we loved so much we sent to the the record label that was releasing a compilation we produced and used it on the inside cover"

"Hi Toni, I just wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed the whole family were with you when you came to do our photo shoot in February. Your patience and kindness with young and old made us all feel completely at ease. Your manner is so warm and friendly so important when you have some clients that are a little camera shy. To manage so many people, dogs and budgie was a real achievement and our groups shots were brilliant with everyone smiling. The morning was such a happy occasion and we were so pleased with the results. You managed to get some really beautiful shots which will be adorning our walls for years to come. We will be recommending you to all our friends ! Thank you so much."
