    Photographer, bride, or groom you can’t go wrong with Neil. I attended a photographer workshop run by Neil last year. In the process I learned what a marvelously talented and humble individual the man is. What was also amazing was looking at samples of weddings he’d just shot and still had up on screen. Every shot was PERFECT ! straight out of the camera. I was green with the envy. Everyone has ‘duds’ – poor compositions, exposure or white balance issues… at least so I thought. Neil shoots gorgeous shots and has no airs of grandeur. So if you are looking photographer call him & check out his work for yourself. And if you are a photographer wanting to sharpen your skills – call also.
