OMG J……..fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!!!!!!!!
What a treasured album. You are a total superstar. You captured the whole experience so we can remember it all (except the snow perhaps!!!!???).
Thank you so very much…..Paul is skiing so I am not sure he will see his emails until later today.
Where to start with the exceptional service provided by Jonathan.
We engaged Jonathan for both our wedding day photographs in Northamptonshire and our engagement ones in Scotland some two years prior to our “big day”. It was apparent from the first meeting to discuss timings locations etc. That Jonathan was not your archetypal photographer. He was quick to focus on the feel of our day and type of photographs we wished. This approach was very evident when he undertook our engagement photographs in Scotland by spending hours meticulously surveying the property in advance to gain the best location shots, as well as watching the interaction between my us, to best capture us in true form. Leading up to the wedding day, he again took time with us at the venue in Northamptonshire, displaying tremendous attention to detail both prior and during the event. He captured both ourselves and our guests in the true spirit of the experience we wished to provide our guests. On a final note, his preplanning meant that we were ahead of time for the wedding breakfast, which sadly with many wedding photographers is far from the case.
In short, Jonathan, meticulous, friendly, delivered beautiful memories and kept the wedding ahead of schedule.
Jonathan and his lovely Wife Mary make a wonderful team and made our whole day extra special . Their professionalism and care to the extra details are second to none. Even with poor weather nothing spoilt or came in the way of Jonathan getting that shot we can’t wait to see our photos and would recommend Piers photography to everyone, thank you so much to both of you
love Mr & Mrs Armour xxxx
I’ve not always had the easiest of relationships with wedding photographers. I’m the sort of person who rebels against being given instructions of where to stand, how to smile and who to pose with. So whatever magic potion Jonathan Hilder has it should be bottled. He was not only the photographer at Ric and Aileen’s wedding – but an integral part to the day. His energy and drive were fantastic – as was a remarkable ability to get the right photo at the right time. The images of the day stand as testament to the quality of his work but the fact he got me to put down a fresh pint of Lakeland bitter, walk out into the drizzle and jump in the air three times in full morning suit show his powers of persuasion. As best man I can honestly say he was a pleasure to deal with…although my aching knees after the third jump may disagree. A fine man, a fine photographer – but only the two takes next time JH. As with the Lakeland bitter he is thoroughly recommended.

Fantastic photographer, absolutely made our day so special and kept everything cool and running to time. Accompanied by an equally amazing dress and hair fluffer.
Thanks so much, couldn’t recommend more highly.

Richard and I cannot thank you enough, not only for the fantastic pre-wedding and wedding photos, but also for the fun yet relaxing atmosphere you and your assistant Charlie helped achieve throughout the day. Having the pre-wedding photo shoot about a month before really helped us to get used to being in front of the camera and the photo for everyone to sign around was a brilliant idea which takes pride of place in our living room.
The whole album is amazing and more than we could have hoped for. It really tells a story. Almost a year on and we still can’t stop looking at it and reliving the day as well as seeing a few bits that we missed!! (The Best Man leaving The dog in the car and running across a field to get him!) It was so great to have you there to capture it all for us.
Thank you so so much for being part of the day and capturing it so perfectly.
All the very best and we’ll be highly recommending you to all our friends so hopefully we will see you again!
Alice & Richard
P.s. Tuesday the spaniel and Baz the horse really appreciated the biscuits and apples you brought for them!
Jonathan and his crew were so professional and organised on our special day that it made for a smoother and more enjoyable experience from the very beginning. With both our massive families, and masses of last minute requests for snaps, Jonathan had his hands full, yet handled every guest and member of the wedding party with friendly and patient professionalism.
In fact, most of our guests commented on Jonathan’s exceptional manner on the day and how different he was from the usual uninvolved and uninterested wedding photographer, being very impressed with his organisation, calm nature and flexibility. We were so pleased with the many photographs we received.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Piers Photography to others. We would also highly recommend the photo studio that was set up for the evening…it was one of the highlights of the evening!
Matt and Nat Willis
Jonathan was a wonderful wedding photographer with great attention to detail and a personal approach. We were delighted with the quality of our pictures and there were so many lovely ones to choose from. Jonathan and his assistant were both quick and efficient during the whole day making sure we had all of the shots we wanted without hassling us or our guests. He was comforting and reassuring throughout the entire process and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Dan and Yvie
Thank you so much for being such an important part of our special day. All our guests commented on how nice you were, and how efficient and seamless the process was made by you and your fantastic team. You also went above and beyond with the announcing and this was much appreciated by us and especially the best man who was able to relax a little more!
The photos we have had a chance to look at on your page are just beautiful.
Thank you so much again- we are so glad you came to our wedding and could not have been luckier in you and your team.
Great photo shoot today in preparation of our wedding! Can’t wait to see the photos.
Suzi & Tim
Sam and I are finally back from honeymoon and have sadly come back down to reality and returned to work! Sam and I wanted to thank you again for the amazing job that you did on our wedding day – lots of people commented on how quick the photos were and how they did not feel like they were “hanging around” for them so thank you very much – we really appreciated it. We are slowly making our way through all of them on your website and they look amazing!
Sam and Claire
Jonathan is a true professional with the ability to transform challenging and potentially complex shoots into enjoyable and rewarding experiences for all concerned.In particular, on the last job he did for myself and one of my most prestigious Clients, I was very impressed by his ability to put people at ease and to deliver natural shots of people who were initially not at all relaxed with the idea of being photographed.With over 40 management and staff to be photographed both in interior and exterior locations, this was not a photoshoot that I was prepared to trust to any other photographer I know.
The result was a very pleased Client of mine who now has a library of exceptional photography to suit all envisaged requirements.I look forward to my next photoshoot with Jonathan and would certainly recommend his services to anyone looking for the highest quality results and excellent value for money.
Jonathon and his team photographed our wedding in the July of 2010, the results were fantastic capturing the formal and the in-formal moments of the day.We now have many photographs that we will treasure forever and would highly recommend Piers Photography.

We have always wanted to have a family photo but getting 4 generations together was hard. The photo shoot went incredibly well and everyone was relaxed and had a genuine happy face rather than a forced smile. Would definitely do it again. We were not rushed and care was given in terms of eye for detail before taking the picture.
It is a shame that you can only chose 3 of the top attributes because all of them apply. I am very happy that we hired Jonathan to provide photography at the Brinkworth Spring Ball. The guests loved the different types of photograph they could have and we have had many compliments on how good and how much fun the photographer was this year!! We will be making sure we book Jonathan again as soon as next years date is confirmed.
