What people say about us

Claudia and Ryan

Jeff and Sarah were brilliant from start to finish. Really friendly and easy to get on with. Complete professionals and created the most amazing photographs. Our friends and family still comment on how stunning they are. They also said they didn’t even notice the photographers there during the wedding. We have recommended them to a few of our friends already.

Laura and James

There were a number of ways Jeff and Sarah contributed to how well our wedding day went. They blended in among the other guests and got some lovely casual photos of people enjoying themselves. I also really appreciated how, during the formal photos, they organised everyone to move along quickly when the thunderstorm was threatening. This meant we were able to just enjoy our day without worrying about smaller details, and we’ve ended up with some stunning photos.

Liam and Jaime

Did our summer wedding at Leeds Castle. Great to work with and the results are outstanding. Listened to what we wanted and built a collection of amazing photos that we will treasure forever. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Jeff and Sarah

Sam and Vishal

Jeff and Sarah are not only amazing photographers, but are wonderful people on top of that. They went the extra mile in every way; especially to understand what was important to us from the off set. This completely reflects in our photographs which tells the story of our weddings perfectly from start to finish; they captured everything. They blended in with our families on the day, made us feel so relaxed and were constantly on the look out for those perfect ‘shots’ that would really stand out.

Davinder and Ky

Jeff and Sarah were absolutely amazing for our wedding, our guests still talk about how great and organised they were. We had a pre-wedding shoot which made us feel at ease in front of the camera and kept in constant contact with us up until the wedding. On the wedding day they were amazing and the photos are stunning. Those extras they did like scoping out the venue for the photo opportunities to leaving personalised cards for our guests to view our pictures online after the wedding, amazing!!!

Tanya & John

If you’re looking for a top quality wedding photographer, look no further than Jeff Oliver. The service we experienced from start to finish was first rate and the photos were just incredible.
An initial consultation at Jeff’s impressive studio convinced us he was the man for us. He and Sarah clearly live and breath their work and they combine their obvious technical ability with real a passion for what they do.

On the big day, they were both really helpful and supportive but entirely unobtrusive. We had both Jeff and Sarah cover our day and its testament to the way they go about their business that our guests barely notice they were there.
They didn’t try and bombarded us with technical jargon or encroach too much on our time during the day. They just asked us what we wanted, got on with the job, and produced some awesome photos!
They also produced a slideshow (to music), which provides a really fitting narrative of the entire day and is perfect for sending to guests following the wedding.
They really went the extra mile for us and we can’t recommend them highly enough!

Michelle & Anthon

Viewing our pictures and words can not describe how amazing the finished product is. The pictures are brilliant and everyone is impressed at how they got through so many pics so quickly. The pictures tell the whole story of our day and will be a cherished memory for many years to come.

If your thinking of using Jeff & Sarah it will be the best decision you make. Very friendly, personable, professional and efficient with pics returned very quickly in time for xmas.

Joanne and Chris

Thank you so much to Jeff and Sarah for capturing better photos of our big day than we could ever have wished for! Each and every shot is completely perfect and looking at them makes us relive every moment as nothing was missed. You both made everything so easy and enjoyable for us and what a lovely couple too….we hope that you have as brilliant photos of your wedding as we do of ours! xx

Amiee and David

Jeff and Sarah photographed our wedding day on the 14th June. The pictures they took were beautiful and captured our special day perfectly. Not a moment was missed and looking back over the photos help us relive every moment of the day which was so magical for us. Jeff and Sarah are very friendly and made us feel comfortable always whilst with them. We would highly recommend them, Thank you.

Caroline and Richard

Jeff and Sarah photographed our wedding at Little Hermitage in August. We live in Australia so needed a photographer who was flexible, understanding and trustworthy. Jeff and Sarah proved to be all of those things and thankfully excellent with a camera too! Our photos are beautiful and our album is simply stunning. They were easy to work with and understanding of our individual circumstances. If only everything about planning a wedding 16000kms away was as straightforward as working with Jeff and Sarah has been. Thank you

Laura and Mark

Our photographs and the whole experience from Jeff and Sarah from start to finish was outstanding, This perfect day for us was captured by sensational images. The attention to detail, natural shots, additional shots, the use of the venue and weather conditions has brought together a unique and superb collection of photographs which we will cherish and display forever. Blending in with our guests they have managed to bring together our whole day with colourful and black & white imagery, 1st class!

Vicky and Marc

My husband and I live in Cornwall and Jeff & Sarah were our amazing wedding photographers back in September. Having never photographed a beach wedding before, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about not choosing a local photographer, but after admiring my sister’s wedding album, shot by Jeff & Sarah, I couldn’t resist and took the chance…..one of the best decisions of my life! Photo’s are out of this world, me or my husband couldn’t be happier with their services! Beautiful photo’s, friendly people and by far outstanding effort in making our day simply the best! Thank you so so much! :o) xx

Jenny and Abdul

I could write a novel and I am not convinced I could do Jeff Oliver Photography justice. Right from the very outset they treated us with an unbelievable amount of care. They proved that they are beautiful people inside out. They understood our every need and made every endeavour to accommodate us. As for the quality of their work, nothing short of magic; sheer brilliance. Moments they were able to capture for us from our special day that we will forever be in their debt. I cannot praise them enough. And looking forward, we now need look no further for the times we would like to capture family moments because in Jeff and Sarah we can count on. Jeff and Sarah Oliver are the epitome of the goodness we as people should strive for; honest, kind and caring. Incredibly talented, hard working and sincere are Jeff and Sarah. God bless. xx.

Fabio and Ingrid

Jeff and Sarah created some amazing photos which translated into a fantastic wedding album that we will treasure forever and made our day that little bit easier as they are really lovely, warm and friendly people. Thanks so much and we would thoroughly recommend. Thanks, Fabio and Ingrid

Kayley and Sean

Words cannot describe how fantastic jeff and sarah are, from our very first meeting with them up until present they are in contact with us regarding our wedding photos. The service they provide is simply incredible. We were made to feel more than just a client they were at our wedding as guests. The photos we recieved are fantastic and worth every penny. Myself and wife look at our photos and realise we made the correct decision to choose Jeff and Sarah.

Amy and Anthony

We could not be more happy that we chose Jeff and Sarah to photograph our wedding. Not only are our photos and album absolutely beautiful but from our engagement shot in Greenwich park to receiving our album they have been extremely professional and friendly, helping to put us at ease and making the day go smoothly. When we first saw our photographs they put it to our first dance and we watched it with a glass champagne at their home and it was really emotional, as they captured our perfect day.

Bruce and Shoyab

Jeff went to both the Registry office & the venue a few days before & worked out exactly where he wanted us to stand to take the photos and also to take advantage of daylight. Between himself & Sarah they captured some very amazing photos of us & our guests before the ceremony including guests arriving at both venues. They also captured some great photos of us & our guests during the ceremony, the dinner & then at the drinks reception. Some of the photos we look like models for a suit catalogue.

Crystal and Ian

What can i say about Jeff & Sarah Oliver? They were fabulous to us from start to finish of the wedding process. Everything was explained to us – they listened to us, offered us advice over tricky situations (family shots with divorced parents) and even accommodated a last minute film crew at our wedding which we were not prepared for (a whole other story) there is not one single shot which i dislike and their ability o capture our visions mean that we have timeless beautiful photos of our day!

The details

Timeline of your day
We help you plan the events of your day to ensure their is enough time for photos.

Shot list
We will send you a template shot list to help you tell us the family photos you would like. For some couples these photos are an important part of the day, for others they would rather more natural photos so the group list is kept quite small. We will discuss with you your preference and timings.

Pre-wedding call, just before your day to finalise details.
Some couples book their wedding photography with us up to 2 years before their wedding day, so times and details may change. We go through all the details and timings before the wedding day to ensure we have all the current information.

Your wedding day!

We will be with you for your bridal preparations two hours before you are due to leave for your ceremony. This gives us time to photograph the details, like your shoes, dress, flowers and to capture the finishing touches of your hair and make up.

During the ceremony we try to be as unobtrusive as possible and capture events as they unfold. After your ceremony we give your guests time to congratulate you and enjoy drinks before moving into the family photos.

We try not to take you away from your guests for too long to take photos of just the two of you, so with this in mind we spread your photos throughout the day. This way we get to make the most of the changing light.

Throughout the day we are always capturing moments between you and your guests, often the moments you don’t see!

We take our break while you and your guests are eating, after all no one wants photos with their mouths full! We photograph the speeches, then our coverage continues until your first dance, after that we leave you to dance the night away.
