"Choosing Jack as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our big day. He was an absolute pleasure to work with on the day - he quietly and unobtrusively captured all the moments from our wedding without being in peoples faces or barking orders, and the photos he produced were absolutely stunning. He was professional and friendly and really made sure he knew what it was we wanted from our photos - and then made it happen. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photographs and would recommend Jack in a heartbeat! "Tom and Clare
"Jack was recommended to us from a friend and right from the outset he was so genuinely enthusiastic about making sure we got exactly the shots we wanted. We loved his documentary style and the way he captures moments that make each wedding day unique. Jack did his own research into the venue and when we met him there he took test shots and chatted with us about how we wanted him to work on the day. During the preparations on the morning of the wedding he did a brilliant job of being there in the background and not being 'in the way' or demanding, just captured the atmosphere perfectly whilst we were busy getting ready. The finished pictures were beyond anything we'd expected, it is amazing how his photos tell the story of the whole day and how he has somehow managed to capture the joy of it all, we still can't stop looking through them! We wouldn't have wanted anyone else other than Jack to document our day and we would recommend him to everyone!" Helen and Andy
"I have known Jack for several years, and have therefore had the pleasure of observing his passion and love for photography blossom into an incredible talent- as well as emerge into a fruitful career.
When myself and my now husband set about wedding planning, we wanted our day to have an intimate feel about it- and therefore, instead of employing vendors, we have embraced the talents and creativity of those close to us. This enabled us to support our friends to grow their own businesses instead of paying thousands of pounds to large companies.
Therefore, when it came to choosing a photographer, it was a no brainer! As well as having a familiar face around on the day, we had the added bonus from a personal perspective as Jack was already aware of the potential issues faced on the day due to my dad undergoing chemotherapy at the time. Jack remained incredible throughout the day- managing to get some amazing photos at the best possible times and remaining completely adaptable when it came to fitting my dad in for groups shots etc. depending on how he was feeling hour to hour.
Jack remained professional and courteous throughout the day - we were completely amazed by the results and have spent many hours looking over the photos taken - wondering on many occasions how he managed to get some photos as he blended in completely and we had no idea he was there (obviously having some ninja superpowers).
Looking over previous photos taken by Jack, we fell in love with the laid back documentary style of photos and felt that they provided a clear insight of the whole day- rather than a few staged snapshots.
As I predicted- the day flew by in such a whirlwind that I was unable to take any of it in and at the end of the day I had only viewed the day from my little bubble. Receiving the photos a couple of weeks later and looking back through a step by step account of the day had me in tears- being able to step out from my bubble and to watch the whole day flash by from a completely different perspective was my favourite moment of the whole wedding experience.
We also had several comments from guests who made a particular effort to inform me how polite they found he was when arranging group shots and getting people's attention. From past experience at being 'barked' at by photographers at other weddings- Jack was described as 'a breath of fresh air'.
We couldn't have asked for a better service, quality of the photos or a more professional and adaptable photographer on the day- even if we had booked a package costing £1000's elsewhere. There is not one single thing we asked to change about the photos when we received them as we were absolutely thrilled with the results.
We could not recommend Jack highly enough to others- and I pass his details on at every available opportunity. Finally, a humongous thank you to Jack for documenting the best day of our lives so beautifully- you could not have done a better job, nor have a more content and satisfied customer! Much Love" Joanne & Daniel
"Hi Jack, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for being the photographer at our wedding in November 2015. The photographs that you have taken really are amazing, you have captured the atmosphere of the day and night perfectly. (You have given me a great selection of Christmas presents for family and friends too, there will lots of photo frames to be purchased!) Looking at them just brings the day and night back to life for us. Thank you again Jack, we couldn’t have done it without you. Rob and David P.s best of luck for the future, you’re gonna go far matey!"Rob and David
"Jack, your photography at our wedding was great, despite having little preparation time in terms of seeing the venue, you took some wonderful pictures which really captured the spirit of the day! So many pictures of people laughing! You totally understood the laid back style of the wedding and some how managed to get the most important photos! We now have so many wonderful memories to look back on, we particularly appreciated the pictures of the groom being thrown in the air and the bride pulling faces with her dad! Priceless!" Helen and Jonny
"One of the first things I said to Grant when we were planning the wedding was “I need to have Jack doing the photography” due to his previous work I had seen, he absolutely did not disappoint! From the moment we started discussing requirements with him he totally had us at ease, which followed on to the big day. We got so many comments on the day and the days following about how professional Jack was, but also how unobtrusive he was, people didn’t feel like he was in their face all the time. We couldn’t have ever dreamt that the pictures would be as special and perfect as they are, Jack genuinely completed our wedding and gave us amazing memories that will last forever & we will always recommend him 100% to anyone!" Sarah and Grant
"We chose Jack to photograph our wedding after seeing some of his work online. We knew he had photographed our location before and we wanted someone who could capture the versatile day of a non-traditional wedding. Jack went above and beyond to make sure he had the perfect shots and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. The photographs show us exactly as we are, a little bit silly, without detracting from the formal occasion. We're so pleased we chose Jack as he did a perfect job on such an important day. Thank you Jack!" Rhi and Stu
"There's no words to explain how talented Jack Hinds is! There's not many weddings you go to where the guest comment on how good the photographer is without even seeing photos! They could see how creative he was and that nothing was too much trouble, he was literally there from first thing in the morning till the early hours the next day!! I've still yet only seen a taster myself as we've been away on Honeymoon and even though I'm already in receipt of the lovely presentation box they came in, I want to take 'time out' to go through them all, if what I've seen already is anything go by I'll be emotional. Thanks again and if you book Jack Hinds for your wedding I guarantee you'll not be disappointed" Catherine and Stephen
"Hi Jack, Just wanted to say thank you so much for beign our photographer for our wedding. We are so glad we chose you. The way you captured our special day was amazing, the photographs are excellent. Everyone has commented how you are such a brilliant photographer, by the way you stood behind the scenes and captured such brilliant moments during the wedding. We will have lasting memories from the day. Thank you once again Jack, we will highly recommend you to people. Good Luck for the future." Sarah and Garry
"Here’s a testimonial a little different from the rest, And I’m sure you’ve been making decisions - the venue, the wedding dress, But I want to put your mind at ease, because let me tell you, Jack is the most perfect photographer to capture your “I do” Discreetly snapping away, I never noticed he was there, As my makeup was being applied, and they were working on my hair - He blended into the background, but captured every scene, The wedding dress hanging in the mirror, my children, so serene. He was open to suggestion, I sent him one or two - If I’m honest it was a lot more, but never too much to do! With his second photographer, he caught every moment of our day, Preserving them forever in a perfectly unique way. For me the most important thing, that I wanted so much, Was for my pictures to represent the truly personal touch, Of having my children around me, as I became a wife, And now I have been blessed with photos that I can treasure for life. Some incredible natural shots, no posing or forcing a smile, And every moment so beautifully captured as I walked down the aisle - Every laugh, every tear, every moment we did share, Was beautifully preserved with so much love and care. So if you are still wondering if this photographer is the one - Let me say an almighty yes - your search is finished and done! Jack, thank you for everything, for the memories we’ll treasure, With photographs of our special day, to enjoy always and forever."
"Jack photographed our wedding at the Manchester Town Hall, we were introduced to Jack through a mutual friend and we loved his work. Jack worked with a professional yet friendly manner and he captured the day rather than having staged photos which is exactl what we wanted. Jack visited and communicated with the venue beforehand whcih ensured the day ran smoothly. We now have hundreds and hundreds of photos to remind us of our special day, they tell the story from start to finish. Thanks Jack!" Danielle and Simon
