Doug took the photos of my wedding to Dan in May 2007 in Paphos in Cyprus. He was great on the day, very professional and took the exact shots I'd asked for without being pushy or overbearing in any way. The photos are fabulous with some really lovely, imaginative shots.
Doug was the perfect wedding photographer. He was warm, cheerful, flexible, patient, professional, fast and efficient without ever being intrusive or pushy. He tailored his service around our needs, went way beyond the call of duty and took every picture we wanted and countless more besides. He and his wife Ira who did the candid photos produced real, natural photographs of the highest quality capturing every important moment of our special day. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Doug has masses of photographic experience across the North-east region. He's exceptionally well known across the area and has covered just about every job imaginable. Doug always treats people with respect and puts them at ease in any situation. He's hard-working, versatile, reliable and a pleasure to work with.

I have worked with Doug for the last 11 years, but known him personally for many years. Doug is an outstanding professional. He's an extremely talented photographer, always determined to capture the very best image he can. He genuinely cares about his craft, and is utterly reliable. Doug's respected and liked by all- I quite simply don't know anyone who has a bad word to say about him. I have no hesitation in recommending Doug to anyone looking for a first class photographer, whatever their need

Doug has worked as a freelance photographer on numerous occasions for me so I have no hesitation to recommend him.

Doug and Ira did the most fantastic job on our wedding day – they not only captured the intimate moments between family members, but the spontaneous ‘laugh out loud’ instances that were enjoyed by all. Our wedding album tells a story where each and every picture signifies a moment never to be forgotten. Every time we glance through the photographs, our thoughts and feelings are sparked, and we spot something we hadn’t captured the first time around. Doug and Ira (as a team) captured every emotion that was there on the day, and as my mum quoted, “Every picture is very you, Liz!” This is just what I had hoped for. There are so many photographers that manipulate images and add special effects, that the naturalness and spontaneity of the day is lost. Doug and Ira had listened very carefully to my criteria and knew that it was a combination of simplicity and realness that I was set on! And simplicity and realness is exactly what I got; thank you both, so very much!
Doug and Ira were an absolute delight to work with – their flexibility and versatility on the day were two of the key ingredients to the success of our wedding pictures. They remained detached, in the sense that they allowed family members to be leisurely and relaxed, so that they were able to soak up the day. Yet, on the other hand, Doug and Ira’s warm involvement, clear direction and vision of what they wanted, allowed the family to move from one picture to the next with ease and enjoyment. Doug and Ira are true professionals, who brought a personal touch to our big day. We would recommend them to anybody looking for a unique interpretation that is tailored
so closely to the individual’s preference and taste.
You did a brilliant job, Doug and Ira, thank you from all the family.
