I didn’t think we needed a photographer, I told the wife to be that we could just put disposable cameras on the tables, save us a fortune, my other half insisted she wanted it done properly. I said it was a waste of money – how wrong was I?
Jonathan was recommended by a friend who uses him for business use, she said he was not the dearest or the cheapest, but he was exceptional value for money and I was determined to get my monies worth.
But from our initial contact with Jonathan, I was impressed. I imagined he would just turn up on the day, snap a few family shots and ask for payment, but he arranged a meeting beforehand to discuss all our requirements, wedding details etc. It was at this time that Jonathan offered us a full package wedding book. Being on a tight budget I was reluctant, thinking I could buy my own and put some snaps in – my wife wanted the book done properly! Little did I know that the book would become the best thing from the wedding and one of our most valued treasures.
We had a few more meetings with Jonathan and Alex before the big day which helped us feel at ease with them and iron out any problems we might have had without their advice and ideas.
The big day arrived and as requested by myself, Jonathan and Alex had a very early start at my home, videoing a special message for my wife to be, which he then took to the hotel to show Caroline (my wife). Caroline was a little apprehensive at first with Jonathan being there taking photos as she got ready with the family, but his professionalism put her totally at ease and as she says, you would not have known he was there.
The ceremony came and went as did the meal, the speeches and then the evening entertainment, people came and went and the whole day went so fast that I would never remember it all, but because of the excellent photography, we now have it all to enjoy forever.
Throughout the day the photo team work tirelessly. Being professional and organised at all times, we were all photographed in a easy manner with no hussle and bussle – they worked as a fantastic team, not only taking fantastic family portraits and organised photos, but then capturing discreet thoughtful moments that anyone else would miss. Many of our guest commented on how hard they worked. I do have to admit that the two of them worked incredibly hard that day, putting in many hours of work. I felt relieved and thankful that we had contacted Jonathan Foulger to do our wedding.
A few weeks after the wedding, Jonathan gave us a disc of the wedding photos for us to choose the ones we liked for the wedding book. I realised then why it was a few weeks – there were over 900. We chose the ones we liked and they asked us for details of our ceremony readings and a few other details. As Jonathan had told us it would take a few weeks for him to organise the photos and design the book. I imagined an album with a few photos slid in, but I was amazed by what he and Alex presented to us. They must have spent days on it. It was a proper book with the photos actually printed on the pages, it was designed with real flair, showing our whole wedding as a story in pictures – our speeches were printed in the book with photos of the speakers, and lots and lots of special moments though out the day that anyone else would have missed. The quality was exceptional.
Many people advised us before the wedding to enjoy it as much as we could as it would pass so quickly – thanks to the wedding book, we can relive the whole day whenever we want, including many images we actually missed on the day.
From start to finish I cannot fault Foulger Photography, They were worth every penny for their work. We now have hundreds or photos on disc and a fantastic wedding book we never tire of looking at. We cannot thank you enough Jonathan and Alex for all you have done.

Jonathan has a down to earth nature and modern artistic approach to photography. He really listened to what we wanted and helped us to make our wedding album be up to date with a real contemporary feel.
On the day he made us all feel relaxed we didn’t realize he was there half the time he took some beautiful natural poses
We were really happy with the how he captured our special day.We would highly recommend to friends. We will look forward to using Jonathan again.

Re: Foulger photography
I’m responsible for the production of internal communications content for Lloyds Banking Group colleagues, particularly those working for the Halifax brand. Having looked at the shots on his website, I was eager to commission Jonathan to take high quality photographs for our media content. I was delighted with the quality of Jonathan’s first shoot for us, and his competitive rates, and he’s now on our list of preferred suppliers for Lloyds Banking Group. As such, Jonathan will be commissioned to take further shots whenever the opportunity arises, which I expect to be on a monthly basis.

Studio Salford is a theatre organization run by unpaid volunteers. Jonathan volunteered his services to help us capture a photographic record of one of our regular performance evenings called “Embryo”. Jonathan showed great versatility and vision in compiling a very creative and varied portfolio of photographs. He did this in a way, which was unobtrusive and was no imposition on the paying public and performers. There were 11 different performers on the evening and many of them have chosen to use the photos that Jonathan shared for other purposes. Jonathan was reliable, had an easygoing attitude and was able to use his own initiative to complete the job successfully. We would be very happy for Jonathan to continue in this role for us.

Jonathan Foulger has been taking photos for Green Vale Homes for the last several months. He is honest, hard working and is able to work to a tight deadline. He is well liked by those he has dealings with, and this is reflected in the images that he produces. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan as a photographer.
