We love it that so many of our wedding couples send us thank you messages online, cards in the post and even the odd thank you cake, bottle of wine, or savoury treat – we love you all!
Here are a few of the message that we’ve received recently.
"We booked HBA because they photographed our friends wedding (Jessica & Michael) where Rachel was bridesmaid, so we already knew we liked your style and we also loved the photos on your website. At our wedding, HBA were just wonderful from start to finish. The communication leading up to our wedding was excellent and we really felt like Ben understood exactly what we were after. We were right and our photos are just AMAZING and we love them! Whilst in attendance at our wedding, both Ben and his colleague were brilliant and just completely blended in. Even down to what they wore on the day, I have seen other photographers turn up in jeans and a t-shirt which isn't really appropriate for a wedding environment - but Ben looked very dapper! We felt completely at ease with them and loved that Ben had scoped out the local area first, so had some awesome ideas (such as ditching the car at the side of the road to help ourselves to a freshly cut corn field, which resulted in one of our favorite pictures from the day). From start to finish we have been over the moon with HBA, we would without hesitation use your services again in future and would recommend you to anyone - which we already have done. Our only disappointment is that we can't do it all again, thank you for capturing our day so perfectly."
"From the moment Ben walked into my room where I was getting ready to introduce themselves, I knew we had chosen our photographers wisely! (well actually we decided it was definitely the right decision when we received the most amazing sponge cake and chocolates through the post prior to our wedding lol) … they were both so friendly, their sense of humour was just like ours and we felt that we could just be ourselves around them and we didn’t worry about our ever so slightly embarrassing family. Really cool people! It didn’t once occur to us that we had two strangers at our wedding, they were just like our friends / guests and it was a true pleasure to have them there! All of our guests commented how lovely you were and how much they enjoyed meeting you both! They weren’t just our photographers they were our crying baby soothers, our bouquet holders, my dress adjusters & my hands to help me through the muddy grass in heels … these guys went above and beyond their job description and for that we are extremely grateful! You both had some fantastic ideas for some unique shots. You captured and created some very special moments that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We cannot praise you enough … I could go on and on about how happy we are that we chose you to capture and be a part of our special day! From the moment we made first contact to enquire about booking you, the beautiful yummy treats in the post prior to our wedding, receiving the text message of support the night before to relieve my nerves, to the incredible job you did on our big day … all of it was PERFECT! If anyone is considering HBA Photography for their wedding then DO NOT hesistate! You will not be disappointed!!! Thankyou to Hannah & Ben! True gems. Chris, Lexy & Mia x"
"Thank you so, so much. They're absolutely amazing. I'm so in love with the photo of me and mum when she first sees me in my dress. Absolutely amazing photographers, they are so organised and yet so relaxed. We all had such a laugh. Ben and Hannah made the whole experience so enjoyable. Even my groom who hates having his photo taken felt very comfortable. Thank you so much for everything you did, can't wait to see the finished photos. Everyone at the wedding asked where I'd found you and I've sent out so many links to your website! Thank you so much, you made our day truly amazing. 😁"
"Incredible pictures, incredible people. Ben was excellent with 2, quite camera shy people. Hannah was amazing with our little boy and Lois was amazing at keeping us all calm. So much more to say about them but only a small review. Booked so far in advance (2 years) and they kept in touch throughout and remembered every little detail we told them. Amazing and shame I can't give more than 5 stars!!!!"
"If you are looking for the best photography for your wedding, then I can recommend with confidence HBA photography! They were incredibly professional, warm and friendly and worked so hard on the day to organise us and our guests to achieve the most amazing photos! They captured us and our family and friends in the most natural way and have left us with the most beautiful moments and memories from our Wedding Day! We cannot thank you enough Hannah and Ben! 😃"
"We were recommended HBA Photography by a friend and we are so pleased they were. We found it so difficult to choose a wedding photographer until we saw Ben and Hannah's work. We knew we had to book them. We met Ben and Hannah on a few occasions at wedding fairs and I was instantly put at ease. They are a very professional outfit and communication has been excellent from the beginning. Even when I was let down by my make up artist very near my wedding I contacted Hannah and she was straight on the case and contacted make up artists she knew. She prevented a bridal meltdown!! On the day itself it was like we were being photographed by friends. They made us feel so relaxed and this was reflected in the photos. Chris and I have very few photos together and now we will have trouble deciding which ones to put on the wall. We asked them to keep the shots natural and relaxed and we could not be happier with them. They have captured some amazing photo's of our daughter and I got emotional looking at them. We didn't have a wedding videographer and I started to worry if I had made a mistake but now seeing the photos the day was captured beautifully. I do not remember seeing Ben for the majority of the day but the photos show they were everywhere. Can't recommend them enough!!!"
"Apart from our choice of spouse, booking HBA Photography was one of the easiest decisions for our wedding day! The photographs on their website speak for themselves, they are absolutely amazing and everything we wanted. It’s easy to see from their gallery that they are fantastic photographers but when you meet both Ben and Hannah you soon realise they are fabulous people too. From Hannah sending us a homemade treat to help with the wedding planning, to Ben texting and asking if we needed an emergency chocolate bar on the morning of the wedding to calm any nerves, they really are a lovely couple (and obviously understand our love of food haha!). We are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photographs, we couldn’t have asked for any better. Despite the almost constant rain, Ben still managed to get some lovely confetti shots and whisked us off the moment there was a break in rain so we could get some photos outside. They worked non-stop all day and it’s not just us who think they’re awesome, we’ve had so many compliments from our friends and family too commenting on how hardworking and friendly they are. We had such a fun time with them which really shows and it was lovely sharing our day with them. If anyone is considering HBA Photography for their wedding, book them! You won’t regret it! Ben and Hannah – we can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us, we love absolutely every single photo. You’re both wonderful people and very talented, thank you so so much. Mr and Mrs Davies x"
"Ben and Han are our friends. It was always going to be them that we wanted to document and share our day. However it made the prospect of being photographed no less daunting for 2 camera shy, self conscious people who are always 'behind the scenes'. How silly we were to even think it would be intimidating. We can hand on heart say having these two around actually added a very important and emotional element to the day, and we would never, ever want to have done it with out them. The fact the preview images have exceeded our expectations is an understatement. (I've worked with Ben many times professionally and I've always been blown away, but still the end results have been more than we'd have dared to dream.) Thank you both for being there. Big love, Nadia and David xxx"
see on the day, including turning up early as they wanted to catch Jaime coming back from his mountain bike ride - It was amazing to see these photos as this was part of his day that I wasn't able to see and as the bride, you don't like to miss anything.Having these photos I have missed nothing, the photos are just out of this world, they are so relaxed and have their style stamped all over them. I have some wonderful, incredible lifetime memories captured in the most beautiful way and all thanks to Hannah and Ben. You guys are just ace, as people, as photographers. Thank you, thank you, thank you. P.S - Ben playing the saxophone is out of this world and a must at your wedding, I have never heard such an amazing sound. Just do it!" "Hannah and Ben, 2 outstanding photographers! I cannot put into words just how fantastic these guys are and how they captured our day in such brilliant photos. Jaime and I are not used to being photographed, but these guys are just so much fun and so relaxed to be around, they just seem to have a magic of taking you along with them on a photo trip and loving every minute, most of the time I didn't even know they were around. They captured so many shots that you just don't
"Anyone thinking of booking HBA Photography DO IT!!!!!!!!!! We felt very strongly about the type of photos we wanted when doing research for our wedding. We wanted the day captured in the most natural way possible, I was pretty set on minimal posing (you are allowed a bit of cheese on your wedding day!). We stumbled across HBA early on in our search and booked them immediately. We then met Hannah and Ben in July to discuss our big day, we instantly liked both them and left the meeting feeling confident that our pictures would turn out amazingly! Ben and Gareth photographed our day and from turning up at 9am they didn't stop for 12 hours straight, I have no idea when they stopped to breath for a second. Ben was fantastic at gathering up all the groups for the family shots and we spotted him in many strange positions through-out the day, on top of walls, lying on a freshly cut, very sharp corn field, he was everywhere! That being said, we didn't once feel like our photographers were intrusive or in the way. We really cannot thank Hannah, Ben or Gareth enough for their hard work in giving us photos we could only have dreamed of and we look forward to working on the wedding album with you... Once we have looked through our 600 photos a few more times!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!"
"WOW thank you so much, they are amazing you are very talented to make us look like that!! Over the moon with them, and can't wait to show family at weekend!! I'm being sneaky and looking at work, so will have a proper look with James tonight - thanks again for all your hard work, and also great pics of the dogs too ;) Thanks again, really captures the day!"

"We would like to say a huge thank you for our wedding albums, and for also going the extra mile to ensure we got these before Christmas, as you know the parents editions were gifts for the big day. Myself and Adam sat with a nice glass of red and relived our wedding day by looking through our album Friday night. To say we were blown away would be an understatement. We know a lot of people who haven't had albums due to the cost. We're thrilled we made the decision to have one made, it's such a special thing. The Queensbury is simply stunning! We really can't thank you enough!"
"We just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your hard work creating our fabulous wedding photos and your expertise in formulating the wedding album. It looks amazing and we can't wait to receive it! We are so pleased we picked you to capture our day & would highly recommend you to anyone. You handled everything with absolute professionalism and put everyone at ease taking our photos during the ridiculously hot day. You really cannot tell how much we were melting. Thanks once again!"
"You have produced the most incredible photos. We love every single one of them and can't stop looking at them. I do not know how we will choose which ones to print. You were such fun to work with and are truly talented. Thank you for creating photos and memories we will treasure forever. Ceris & David Xxx"
"I have not stopped looking at the photos since you sent us the link. We did not expect them so soon and are both extremely grateful for the speedy turnaround! That takes hard work and dedication! I cannot put into words how happy I am with the photos! You captured the whole atmosphere which comes across perfectly. We both never stopped smiling all day and you did so well with the time and amount of people that needed to be photographed before the light was lost. I know our crazy lot can be a bit difficult to round up, but you handled them perfectly! Your creativity and attention to detail is phenomenal, very clever ideas which look amazing! I usually hate looking at photos of myself but I could look at these all day (which I have been). Thank you for braving the cold, you must have been perished but not once did I hear you say you were cold, you were more concerned about us being warm. You are a lovely couple and I am so, so glad we found you that day at the Wedding Fayre. You were perfect for us! Hopefully we'll meet you again one day when we have a family to photograph"
"The photos are amazing!!! I love every single one of them! We watched the slideshow and it made us cry and laugh at the same time. Seriously we can’t thank you enough. You two are so talented!! God knows how you get some of the shots you get, or what gives you the ideas but you are both amazing and the results are stunning. I am your biggest fan!! (But not in a serial killer-stalker kinda way). Hahaha. Thank you so so much. Kel xxx"
"Hello Hannah and Ben, We have just sat down and looked at our pictures, they are beyond beautiful so thank you for capturing some really special moments, expressions and scenes! Just a quick thank you ever so much! You really are a fantastic couple and team! We can’t thank you enough! Emma and Tim x x"
"Hi Hannah & Ben Myself and Joe would like to thankyou you both very much for all your hard work. We love our wedding photos they are stunning!!! Having you both as our photographers helped us to relax and enjoy the day as we had faith in you both that the photos would be beautiful and they really were. You are both such lovely, organised and helpful people. Some of our photos we didn’t even realise you were taking, like the one of me and my dad hugging and you have caught in through the mirror love it!! We would highly recommend you both to any couple that is getting married. We can’t thank you enough as we really do love our wedding photos. I can’t stop looking at them as I want to do it all again Thankyou once again Chantelle and Joe xxx"
"Dear Hannah and Ben, Thank you so much for sending the DVD with all the photos from our wedding. We’ve just looked through them all and are thrilled with the pictures that you’ve taken. You’ve really managed to capture all of the excitement and joy from the day, and all the little details that we put in to it. I’ve had so many lovely compliments from friends and family about the photos (and I must admit, I can’t stop flicking through the online album!), and all the wedding guests have said that you were the most unobtrusive photographers they’ve come across at a wedding and how you both made everyone feel at ease Thank you so much for doing such a brilliant job, we have such a wonderful set of photographs which we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Thanks again and best wishes, Charlie and Rosie xx"
"I know we’ve said it to you a million times but we cannot even begin to put into words how grateful we are that you agreed to photograph our wedding. Our day was exceptionally perfect and a massive part of this was down to the stunningly beautiful photographs that you took. You were both perfect on the day (even holding up my dress for me on more than one occasion) and we couldn’t quite believe how many positive and complimentary comments we received on your behalf and just when we thought that you guys couldn’t possibly get any better, we saw the photographs that you had taken and were completely memorized, in awe and many tears have been shed whilst looking through them. You truly are the best photographers, and were so pleased that we picked you. We’d pick you again, over and over, to photograph any of our special occasions and we’d recommend you to anyone that requires a photographer – and already have been!! Thank you again for EVERYTHING, you’re the best and we owe you so much. You’ve literally captured every moment and given us one of the best possible gifts; memories that will last forever, and stunning pictures of us both that we can drool over when were old and grey.. Thanks again, eternally grateful Mr and Mrs Yeomans xxx"
"We knew Ben and Hannah would do a great job as soon as we saw their pictures at a wedding fayre 12 months earlier, and we certainly weren’t disappointed as they captured our day beautifully, with pictures we will treasure forever. Not only did they take wonderful shots, but their attention to detail, their support leading up to the wedding and their fun company on the day surpassed all our expectations. They really are at the top of their field and we can’t recommend them highly enough. Thanks guys and we hope to work again with you in the future! Tania & Tegid xxx "
"Ben and Hannah, Darren and I had an amazing wedding day! From the moment we met with you we felt at ease and confident about how wonderful our photographs would be. We would highly recommend you to anyone as our photographs are gourgeous and we shall treasure them forever. May I add that the little touches didn’t go unnoticed. For example Ben lending me his coat against the December weather and Hannah with the hand warmers! Honestly thank you so much. Our day went so quickly, but you were there to capture every moment and tell our story. Those memories that mean to much to us we shall remember always. And we couldn’t have chosen two better people. Hannah and Ben you are wonderful. Louisa and Darren Allen xxx"
"We first fell in love with the beautiful images on your website but it wasn’t until our first meeting, sitting in your lounge, drinking coffee and discussing the type of images we liked that we knew you would be able to capture our day the way we wanted. Through the whole process, you were brilliant, calm and professional in the weeks leading up to the big day and on the day outstanding. All our guests commented on how great you were, fitting in with the wedding and capturing the special moments. For us, you were like 2 friends enjoying our day, making us laugh and having fun with us and the venue – especially the light painting at night which produced some amazing images! The photographs are stunning, but more important than that are the memories we will take away of the fun we had creating them. We cannot thank you enough for sharing our day with us. Lot of love Jenny and Kris"
"I LOVED the look of HBA’s wedding photography, it was both stylish, beautiful and relaxed; just the look we were hoping for. From the very first email of enquiry, to today, three days after our wedding, the communication between Ben and Hannah and ourselves has been incredible. They gave us lots of information before we booked with them and were never pushy or put any pressure on. Once we had booked them, they kept in contact when we wanted to ask any questions or to remind us that we could choose our ‘must have shots’ in advance of the wedding date. They were unobtrusive yet present during the wedding ceremony and I have total confidence they captured every moment. After the ceremony, they allowed us to mingle with our family and friends before whisking us off for our couple shots. They took us away from the rest of the guests which was really important as it allowed us to relax and enjoy the process. They knew some incredible spots for the type of photography we wanted; open fields with beautiful backdrops, a rustic looking shed, an old beautiful ornate gate, autumn leaves, logs and trees. We’re just SO impatient to see the result now!! Yesterday, Ben sent me a copy of one of our shots and it is beyond our expectations. It was a wonderful surprise as I didn’t expect to see anything yet, but the sneaky peek has definitely whetted our appetite! I would wholeheartedly recommend Ben and Hannah for any occasion."
"From the moment we first met, we knew HBA were the ones for our special day! They really did make you feel so relaxed. We felt, as a couple that we had known them for years. After the first meeting Hannah and Ben kept in touch, keeping us all updated with all new products and information about our wedding day. Nothing was too much trouble for them no matter how demanding we were! (We had found a location near a lake, which we thought, would be beautiful for photos) They got so involved with every idea we had and was even going to meet up before he big day to look around! We really did feel we had made the best choice in HBA due to there down to earth nature and modern approach to photography. They listened to what we wanted and advised on new approaches in photography to make our album up to date with a contemporary feel. The morning of the wedding and the rain was pouring! Hannah and Ben gave many different options to have photos and totally relaxed me (I had every faith in them) the rain thankfully stopped just before the ceremony and Hannah and Ben were so excited to go to the lake, they quickly whisked us off to the lake. Hannah and Ben are the most professional people we have ever met with a great eye for location and romance. They will always go that extra mile. They made us feel so relaxed and didn’t feel like the photos took over our day. All our guests were all complimenting how lovely and friendly they were. We are so happy with the level of service we received and will definitely be recommending."
"Ben & Hannah… My husband & I (applause!)… Would just like for thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your sheer hard work & dedication on our wedding day on Friday. You worked tirelessly from morning until night & were an absolute pleasure to spend time with on our special day. All of friends and family have commented on how amazing you were. The photos were ready so quick! My goodness!They are absolutely incredible! Can’t thank you both enough! we have been telling everyone how amazing you are & we will definitely recommend you to anyone that is getting hitched! xxxxxxxxxx"
"Thank you SOOOOOO much for designing a beautiful album, full of memories and telling the story of our day! We love it, as do our parents with their mini albums and the fact that it arrived in time for Christmas was an amazing bonus! Thank you for all of the hard work you have done, can't recommend you highly enough and if we need photographers in the future, we know exactly who to go to!"
"I would like to start by saying thank you so much! You were our dream photographers and you certainly did not disappoint! You made Tom and myself feel so comfortable and natural and you were absolutely brilliant with our guests, my sister Becca couldn't talk more highly of you for how helpful you were."
