"Thanks so much John for all of your fantastic photos of our special day, we are over the moon with them… The difficult part is trying to decide between them! We were so impressed with the level of care, attention and service you gave us; from the pre-wedding meetings at home and at the venue, to your detailed yet unobtrusive approach on the day. It felt like we had a friend alongside us throughout the day! We have had so many compliments from our guests about the photos since they were put on your website, you did such a good job at circulating and capturing some great reportage images of them. Once again, many thanks, and best of luck for the future." Best wishes,
- Richard and Liz Orme
"Thank you so much for our wedding pictures - we couldn't be happier. Having seen your work we were expecting big things and we weren't disappointed. The all round service which we received was first class, prior to the wedding, and on the day. We will be recommending you to all of our friends who may be looking for a wedding photographer.
We have also had such wonderful feedback from friends about how fantastic the photos are and how we must be so thrilled with the results. Several of our guests have commented on how professional, courteous, friendly and fun you were to have along on the day. This is a feeling we share as well - we could not have asked for anyone better on our special day, our only problem now is trying to select our pictures for the album! "

"As someone who has a mini phobia of having her photo taken, I was very apprehensive about selecting a photographer for our wedding. My father is also extremely particular when it comes to photography so the selection process for our wedding photographer became a somewhat grueling interview process! John put me ease from the moment I greeted him at the front door, his laid back yet extremely professional demeanor won us over within minutes and from that moment on we had complete confidence in him. Where John differs from other photographers is his incredible ability to get to know his subjects very quickly and he understood exactly what we wanted from our photographer after just the first meeting. Despite being lumbered with some very challenging wedding guests who refused to move out of the way, some somewhat disorganized ushers and a bride that had more than the usual set of reasonable demands, his pictures were exactly what we would have hoped for and more. He captured every aspect of the day and went out of his way to make sure that we achieved the results that we were looking for. John has restored my faith in the beauty and importance of photography and I just wish that we could afford to use his services to mark every special occasion."

"Just wanted to take the time to say thank you so much for being such a fab photographer on our wedding day. Your calm professional attitude made for a very relaxed time when posing for all of the photos. The effort you put into coming to see us before the wedding overwhelmed us, especially your planning of every detail. You were discreet when you needed to be (we didn't notice you in the church!) and vocal when you needed to be organising formal photos - this must have been a nightmare but you managed to do it in a relaxed and friendly manner."

"When we began the arrangements for my daughter's wedding, one of the big problems we had was who to choose as the official photographer. I am very glad that we chose John Rahim. Before the big day he went to great pains to consult us and give advice; he visited the church and the reception venue in order to have every eventuality catered for. On the day he spent a lot of time taking excellent photos of the wedding service and reception, and mingled very well with the guests. He managed to get just the right shots without being obtrusive, and we were very pleased with the results. By the end of the big day we viewed him as a friend as well as a skilful professional. I can recommend John for your wedding day."
- Stephen Lock, Father of the bride, Sarah Lock.
"John was fantastic! The entire experience of working with him, from the day we sent an enquiry, through the wedding preparations and planning, and on the day itself, could not have been better; easy, professional, friendly and highly organised. One the wedding day I was so glad I choose him as the photographer, I immediately relaxed knowing that he was in control of the pictures, he organised everyone beautifully, knew exactly what was going on at all times and was just really professional.
The pictures we had as an end result were stunning and we couldn't be more pleased. We wanted a mix of formal portraits and more relaxed reportage images, and that is exactly what we got. I cannot recommend John Rahim highly enough; if you are lucky enough to have him available on your wedding day book him! You wonít regret it."

"John did a fantastic job. Before the wedding we met up twice with him to discuss the type of photography that we were looking for as well as visit the venues to choose suitable photographic locations. On the day John made everyone relaxed and captured the day as it happened without taking over. The result was some lovely contemporary, reportage and formal photos which were exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely recommend John to anyone looking to book a wedding photographer."
- Michelle & Warren
"John did the photography for our wedding on 28 July this year. He came to see us beforehand to discuss what we wanted; he was at the venue very early and called to reassure me that he was there; he was friendly, helpful & unobtrusive throughout the day and the photographs were fantastic and exactly what we'd been looking for. He also sent us more photos than we'd originally agreed. Overall, I couldn't recommend him more highly."
- Francis & Jeremy
"Finding a photographer to cover our Civil Ceremony was not the easiest job for us. We wanted someone who could capture the day as it happened however someone who could fit in with our family and friends and make everyone feel at ease.
Although this was Johnís first Civil Ceremony we liked his relaxed and natural reportage style. We were not wrong with our choice of photographer. On the day he mixed in with our guests and took formal and reportage shots in a natural, uncontrived and unobtrusive manner. The photos which we received were exactly what we were looking for and will be a continued reminder of our happy day for years to come."
- Scott & Jonathan
"We just wanted to again say thank you so much for the beautiful photos - we're really pleased with how they've turned out. Our families have looked at the ones on the website and we've had loads of positive feedback from them as well, both about the photos and how great you were on the wedding day itself.
Lots of friends also said how friendly you'd been and we really appreciated how relaxed and flexible you were on the day - it made everything a lot less stressful!"
