|NORTH EAST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER REVIEW:|
JO AND ALAN AT JUDGES COUNTRY HOUSE HOTEL
I work hard to produce great relaxed natural images from your wedding, but customer service and customer experience, as well as trust and confidence is paramount.
Joanne and Alan dislike having their photograph taken so much, they don't even have any in the house.
I guess I changed their minds.....
"........ When we started our search for a wedding photographer we went through the usual steps of checking websites, reviews and of course photos!
However, Alan used to work at a company years ago that hired a photographer to take shots of the people at work, and even years later that photographer's name had stuck in his memory due to the quality and style of the photographs – Dirk Van Der Werff.
Even though at the time they weren’t wedding photographs it was a joy to find that weddings were now his specialty! We were looking for relaxed, happy and natural photographs of everyone attending – as to us the day is just as important for our friends and family as us, and Dirk fit this vision perfectly.
When it came to our initial meeting Dirk visited us at home and immediately felt like a friend, and even though our mind was set near enough there and then, he encouraged us to look around and check other photographers, which was refreshing.
We did check out other photographers, but nothing quite compared.
On the build-up to the big day itself we met once more for some pre-wedding photos in our home town, although we could have gone anywhere.
Unfortunately it was pouring down on the date arranged, so we had a coffee and a nice chat in a pub, thinking we’d have to abandon them altogether.
However, Dirk was happy to shuffle his diary and meet us the following day when it was glorious sunshine – that level of commitment really made us feel special and valued as clients.
As for the wedding itself, there were nothing but compliments about Dirk. People actually went out of their way and came up to us to say what a wonderful photographer he was!
They all felt relaxed and happy, and having their photos taken was PART of the fun and not something to distract from it.
As for the printed photographs.... Everyone who has seen the wedding photographs have been amazed by them and we couldn’t be happier – in fact we think there should be a disclaimer on his site cautioning people that there’ll be so many good photos to choose from, selecting some for an album may take you a long long time!
From the photos you would not think that we do not like to have our photograph taken, we actually have no photographs on display in our house, but Dirk's photos will take pride of place on our wall.
So, from one single photograph of Alan at work to a superb collection of memories and happy faces on our wedding day years later.....
Some might call it fate, we think it’s just an amazing talent shining through and leaving a lasting impression!
We’ll never forget our big day, and equally we’ll never forget our photographer Dirk van der Werff!
