Malgosia & Matthew (wedding, Danesfield House)

Amazing photos that captured our family so well. Wendy gave us the opportunity to be ourselves and the end result was a tremendous selection of natural photos where we ALL looked good, not just the photogenic children, but the parents too. The portraits of our two little boys are stunning and in one click of the camera Wendy has somehow captured their very personalities. These are pictures to be treasured and the whole experience was fun, professional, extraordinarily helpful and worth every penny. 

Mark & Gigi Huggins (Wedding, Cliveden) 

We were fortunate enough to meet Wendy in July 2010 at our friends wedding, so there was no doubt in our minds that we wanted her to photograph our wedding.  Wendy's photographs of our wedding are simply stunning, she captured the feel of the whole day and moments that as a bride and groom you otherwise miss.

It was a pleasure having Wendy at our wedding, she was professional and made everyone feel very relaxed.  What makes the whole process so special is that she gets to know you as people and as a couple; this makes per photos unique and personable.  Photographing the wedding is only part of the process.  We cannot thank Wendy enough for the amount of work that went into creating  the photo gallery and the albums for ourselves and our parents.  All the memories of our special day have been magically captured  - thank you Wendy!

I have worked with professional photographers and camera crews for 25 years in TV and newspapers all over the world, and not even remotely can I recall such an array of stunning shots. Wendy has now achieved this three times for us, in 2006/2008 and 2010. What's more, we now have two sets of twins under five, and it was occasionally bedlam leading up to and sometimes during the last shoot. However, there was not a single photograph that was not terrific. I was almost disbelieving. To boot Wendy is a lovely person; personable, engaging, unobtrusive, and the children loved her. They certainly didn't want to leave. It was far too much fun. Wendy also achieved  what we most wanted; a series of photographs that captured something of the essential personalities of each of our children. I have no doubt that these will be definitive photographs for us, our children, and our children's children. Sublime. Thanks Wendy.

We're so pleased we chose Wendy to photograph our wedding. Right from our very first meeting we knew we were in good hands! Wendy combines outstanding professionalism and technical ability with a very friendly manner, putting everyone at ease. In her beautiful pictures, she captured the mood perfectly. She managed to subtly blend into the background to give relaxed and natural shots, just as we'd discussed prior to the wedding. She even managed to catch a shooting star in one of our evening shots! Following the wedding, our pictures were quickly available for us to view at our convenience, and once we'd chosen the ones for our album, this too was promptly compiled with care and attention to give a reflective storyboard of our day. In every way, Wendy provides an excellent service, and we can't recommend, or thank her enough.

Cath & Paul Soul-Williams (wedding, Court Gardens Marlow)

Dear Wendy,  we just want to say an enormous thank you for our stunning wedding photographs and for the effort you went to last night with the slide show, music, nibbles and bubbles to make it a wonderful experience reliving our wedding day.  Nick and I were blown away with how you captured our day so beautifully and we felt incredibly emotional watching the slideshow.  Thank you, thank you once again, you truly are a huge talent and I am so glad that we found you to capture our day!

Charlotte and Nick MacFarlane (Wedding, Copes Farm, Great Kingshill)

We want to say a massive thank you for our beautiful photos - we absolutely love them!  We've had so many compliments too and we really couldn't have asked for anything better!  Thank you so much Wendy.

Joanna & James Harris (Baby portraits)

Wendy, you've done a fantastic job of our album, canvases and additional photos.  We are so thrilled and now have some creative pieces of art to decorate our home with!  Thank you.   Also thank you as always, for your kindness, professionalism and enduring patience.  We would not hesitate in recommending you and Owen and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Marie-Anne and Owen Skinner (Compleat Angler, Marlow)

We fell in love with Wendy's work the first time we stepped into Monkton Barn, her beautiful studio set in the Chiltern Hills.  Straight away, we had our minds set for her to capture our wedding day, and were pleased and relieved when she accepted our request. Wendy was easy and fun to work with and we loved every image she's captured.  She has the great talent of making people feel relaxed and her pictures were natural and story telling. We are pleased to recommend her.

Lu and Ben Cox (Wedding, Monkton Barn)

Wendy, we just want to send a card to say thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of Ella.  We love them, especially the ones in your garden.  It's so special to have memories of Ella at that age.  Thanks again.  Kaye and Henry Laithwaite.

Kaye and Henry Laithwaite (Baby portraits)

It was great meeting you, the photo shoot was everything I dreamed it would be, for a start. Marlow was an amazing little town, your studio was very relaxing, the area around it was breathtaking and to top it All, you and your assistant were so fabulous and made us feel great during the shoot.

We truly had a wonderful time and the result is just "wow". Every photo is more beautiful than the previous one. They look far more beautiful than my actual wedding photos. I am sure we'll meet again in another photo shoot with the entire brood.

Noura Albazie (Portraits)

My young daughters and I had a weekday shoot with Wendy and were delighted with the results. She produced the most amazing photos, truly capturing their little personalities in a number of different settings. A present for my husband’s 40th  birthday and we managed to compile our nine favourite photos in to a mounted frame, which looked stunning. Wendy helped us choose the frame and the best pictures that sat so well together. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish and we will recommend Wendy to all our friends and family. 

Abby Walters (Portraits)

Wendy has a true gift of being able to capture the mood of the day and her photographs from our wedding are just fantastic!  Her attention to detail produced wonderful pictures starting from the bridal preparation through to the ceremony, wedding breakfast and the party.  She made all of us feel at ease and was extremely efficient in organsizing all the group photos.  Our wedding album and slide show are beautiful and captured our joy and happiness perfectly.  She has been a real pleasure to work with.

 

Rebecca & Mark Griffiths (Portraits)

Thank you so much for my pictures.  They look stunning and I cannot describe how they make me feel.  I will treasure them always.

Caroline and Jack (Portraits)

Thank you for all your help, support and brilliant work with our wedding photgraphy.  You captured every little detail and the result was just what we had hoped it would be. Thanks to you we now have beautiful memories on paper that will last a lifetime.

Lauren & Andy Stevens (Wedding, Lillibrooke Manor)

When selecting out photographs for our wedding, we were keen to find someone who would capture the romance and the atmosphere of the day. When we found Wendy we knew she was the one who would be able to meet our exacting standards.

Her professionalism and understanding of our expectations made it well worth paying someone of this calibre. The album was absolutely stunning; we can not recommend Wendy Aldiss more highly.

Nichola & Kevin Lafford (Wedding, The Five Arrows Waddesdon)

Wendy was the photographer for our wedding at Danesfield House in Marlow.  She was wonderful, polite friendly and she captured the day without being obtrusive. She was in the right place at the right time to capture the most natural shots possible.

Wendy completely understood what we were looking for, lots of natural photos of everyone having a great time and only a few group shoots.  She delivered a beautiful set of images and we will continue to enjoy looking through them for years to come.

Lindsey and Paul Martin (Wedding, Danesfield House)

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the album- thank you SO much!  Both of us got very teary seeing the pictures and will definitely be taking the album with us over Christmas to show the families.

Claire & Richard Sykes (Wedding, Notley Abbey)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for capturing the essence of Georgia's Wedding day in a calm unobtrusive manner and congratulate you on the wonderful photo's of Georgia.  They reflect the pride and happiness I felt on their wedding day and the photographs capture humorous, sad and happy moments and are a joy to look at.

Gillian Hills (Wedding, Monkton Barn)

Having researched several local photographers online we were struck by Wendy’s Website and by her style of photography. We were looking for a reportage style that absolutely captured the moment, the emotion, the character and personality of those being photographed. Wendy gives you this and much more. Her instinctive ability to press the shutter at exactly the right moment is not to be underestimated. We think the results speak for themselves. Wendy is generous with her time and extremely experienced in her craft, the result is you get what you want. Her skill ensures that you will enjoy the pleasure of selecting many beautiful photographs from her efforts. The final result will mean lasting memories of those special, once in a lifetime moments. We recommend her to anyone seeking the best in reportage photography.

 

Camilla and Martin Royds (Wedding, Sir Charles Napier)

Having used the very talented Wendy Aldiss twice now, for 2 very different shoots, I  realise why she has the amazing reputation she has. Wendy did a family portrait for my mother's 70th, which was beautiful and more recently some studio shots of my daughter for a modelling agency. The studio shots were incredible. She has an informal and friendly manner, putting children and adults alike at ease. A consummate professional, who makes it all look so easy. I am sure she has a 100% satisfied customer rating!

Sophie Thorpe (Portraits)
 
From the moment we contacted Wendy, we felt confident to trust her to capture the magic of our wedding day.  We were impressed by her portfolio and style of photography and Wendy was able to tailor an option to suit us and be flexible to our needs as we live abroad.  We were not disappointed, Wendy managed to capture the essence of the day in the style we hoped for, without being intrusive, giving us a beautiful album to treasure.  We will definitely contact Wendy again for our future family portraits.
 
Paul and Krysyna Kemp (Wedding, Hall Place)
 
Wendy was our chosen photographer for our wedding day and what a joy she was to work with. Calmly and efficiently taking casual photos as well as the classics and we are absolutely delighted with each and every one. The essence of our wedding has been captured from start to finish - our dream day captured in photographs. The lighting, focus and smiles all framed for our memories without being intrusive - Wendy is a delight and a charming fun lady. 
 
Lucy Young and Peter Borcherds (Wedding, Hurley private gardens)
  
I cannot recommend Wendy Aldiss highly enough to friends and family after our photo shoot.  She was friendly, professional and made us feel at ease straight away.  She is a natural working with young children,  and  mine were happy, relaxed and had great fun.  They didn’t actually want to leave when it was over!  Her photography skills are outstanding – we went on a pretty grey day and she still managed to give us the perfect pictures. Wendy has a great eye for capturing those natural moments from our children, which all parents want to treasure.   She is very  flexible and can also turn her skill  to  giving us more formal family pictures.  The biggest problem we had was to choose which pictures to purchase! They were simply all good. She helped us through this process and the final framed pictures look  amazing ! We are very satisfied and the pictures always get a compliment  whenever we have people over! Thank you Wendy!
 
Regina Mabon (Portraits)
 
Wendy Aldiss was truly marvellous working as our Wedding photographer.  Wendy had been recommended to us by a photographer friend and lived up to every word.  Wendy was very organised and professional at all times.  She worked with an ease that was unobtrusive and efficient getting all the photos we had wanted and much more. The results were stunning.  Together we decided on a classic album which Wendy designed brilliantly.  An album that will remain as lovely in years to come as is it today.  We can't recommend Wendy’s work highly enough.

Clare Surplice (Wedding, Fawley Court)

When we were lucky enough to find Wendy to photograph our wedding, we didn't realise we had struck gold.  Her photographs were simply stunning.  Wendy captured our wedding day with a whole portfolio of beautiful images that went far beyond our expectations.  Wendy is a consummate professional who listened to what we wanted and delivered in an unobtrusive and friendly manner.  We really would have no hesitation in recommending Wendy to capture your special day. 
 
Andy and Helen Morris (Wedding, Notley Abbey)
 
As an Ambassador and fundraiser for the charity 'Action for Children', I introduced Wendy to the charity ten years ago and she has since been a faithful and dedicated supporter, raising funds for disadvantaged children through her extraordinary talent as a photographer.  I first met Wendy when she came to take photographs of my children as a birthday gift from a friend. She was unique with them, helped I'm sure, by being a mother herself.   I had employed photographers before and nobody had managed to capture them quite in the same light. She was endlessly patient and entertaining bringing out humour and confidence. She continued to photograph them over the years. My son launched a career on the strength of a photograph she took of him at seventeen. We have recently moved house and had to scale our possessions down but we never considered not taking these pieces of history with us, which, encapsulates their lives. 
 
Lynda Myles Till (Portraits)
  
We have used Wendy to take family photographs and we were so thrilled with the results we also asked her to take our wedding pictures. Everyone who sees them thinks they are amazing - they really captured the spirit of the day and looked very natural. We have since recommended Wendy to many friends and they have all been as delighted with the results as we have been. She is also lovely to work with and has a knack for getting children to co-operate. We wouldn't dream of using anyone else. 
 
Christ and Amanda Purrington (Portraits & wedding, The Waterside Inn)
 
I was nervous about doing a mother and baby photo session, but Wendy immediately put Emily and I at our ease. The barn was a lovely place to have the photos taken - the light was wonderful and the setting comfortable and didn't feel at all staged. Wendy was professional and patient with us both and really took time to capture Emily and all her different expressions. The experience was lots of fun! When the photos were ready to be viewed, I was astonished at how amazing and beautiful the images were. They captured Emily perfectly at really special time in her life.  I was so impressed with Wendy's energy and enthusiasm towards her work. She cares deeply about making the whole experience a wonderful one, and I have to say that I am absolutely delighted with the magical results.

Kate Leighton (Portraits)

We have such a huge amount to thank you for,  I don’t think I can possibly fit it all in this card! Firstly, thank you for taking the most incredibly wonderful photographs – we will treasure them forever.  There are so many wonderful ones that we are going to really struggle to narrow them down for the album. Secondly thank you for all the incredible hard work you put in on the day and also before and afterwards.  You managed to get so many wonderful pictures but somehow remained in the background so that no one even noticed them being taken – quite a feat!.
 
Emily Shelford (Wedding, Danesfield House)
 
I have used Wendy on several occasions for different photo shoots. Her calm and relaxed manner is great as she really makes you feel at ease. The first time I used Wendy was for a session with me and my newborn baby. The shoot was such fun to do and she was delightful with the baby. I am so glad I had these photos taken as it really is a special time and I love the photos,  remembering the fun we had taking them!   Wendy also did a family photo shoot with my other two children and husband. Wendy is a mother herself, so handled the children brilliantly. I love the shots she took of us as a family, they are natural but at the same time you know that a professional has taken them. Wendy used natural light for all my photos and they have a great quality about them. As a mother of three young children I can’t recommend Wendy more highly and I will be using her again to capture the children as they grow up. 
 
Sara Browett (Portraits)

Wendy has been photographing our family and their cousins for more than 10 years. We love her to bits and every photo is exceptional. She really brings out the best in the children and the pets too... There is a magic to her work, which is why we have recommended her to so many of our friends.
 
Jo Spratley (Portraits)
 
Wendy first photographed my two daughters in 2000, following the recommendation of a friend. I was thrilled with the results and, since that time, Wendy has photographed the girls every two years enabling us to create a unique and personal record of their childhood. Very few walls in my house are without a Wendy Aldiss photograph! Wendy’s skill as a photographer is to put the children at their ease; shoots are always fun and her unposed  approach  ensures she captures the children as they really are. There are always so many beautiful shots to choose from that the only hard part of the process is making a decision on which images to frame!

Sarah Hacking (Portraits)
   
We have known Wendy first as a highly skilled professional and then as a friend for near to 10 years. Over that time, she has done a number of shoots. Each time she has captured our family as it has grown and changed over the years. To us the photos that she has taken are not just pictures in a frame but pieces and moments of our lives captured with such beauty and perfection that we look at them often and treasure them always. We can only thank her for all her excellent work and pray that we never run out of walls. With our kindest regards.
 
The Taft Family (Portraits)
 
Wendy is a true artist. In her photographs she is able to capture the innocence of childhood which in this hectic world of ours is forever fleeting past. Her  artistry enables us to possess as precious keepsakes, the magic and joy of the moments which we nurture in our receding memories.
 
Mithu Banerji (Portraits)

Very many thanks for sending me a copy of all the photographs that you took at the school last academic year. I am delighted by their quality and many parents and visitors comment on their excellence, illustrating your talent and professionalism! Thank you.
 
Headmistress,  Herries Preparatory School, Cookham (Portraits)

Paul and I wanted to say a huge thank you for the gorgeous wedding album you did for us. We had such a fantastic day and you were so unobtrusive, yet you managed to capture our guests, the beautiful location and our whole wedding day atmosphere and experience onto paper, which is a truly amazing talent, every page is like reliving our day. You were recommended to us by a really close friend and I will be eternally grateful to her and we will be highly recommending you to anyone who needs your services in the future. We shall be in touch, to come and get our family photographs done, in the not too distant future. With our very best wishes.
