Thank You

a few kind words

. . . a few of the lovely thank you’s from couples over the years . . . 


This is just a little email to say a huge THANK YOU for the absolutely fantastic job you did with our wedding photography.  I can’t recommend you highly enough, you were there for every moment (somehow invisibly!?) capturing it beautifully, you made the whole process so easy for us and even managed to make my husband feel comfortable behind the lens which is a miracle in itself!  You photos are timeless, natural and stunning, and your service second to none – Thankyou 🙂

Sam photographed our entire wedding day from getting ready to the final moments of the reception. His service from initial emails, meeting at our wedding locations and ultimately the day was truly amazing. On the day he felt like an old friend rather than a wedding photographer and complimented me throughout the day, always nice to hear! The quality of his wedding photography is fantastic and it’s so good to know that we will have these beautiful memories to cherish for the rest of our lives. If you’re considering a slightly cheaper option, don’t, we feel that Sam and New Forest Studio was one of the best value for money aspects of our entire wedding and would recommend him to all of our friends and family


Sam was without a doubt our best wedding decision and worth every penny. He really took the time to understand what we wanted, did not want and oh my word did he deliver and some. He was such a natural fit with our family and friends – we hardly noticed we were having our photos taken during our Barford Park reception. He worked so hard and clearly knows his camera well because every shot seems to have captured our day so well and will most definitely serve as our most treasured memory. Sam’s photos tell a story and a pretty amazing one (for us anyway). We would highly recommend Sam to anyone – his photos are stunning

The best way to remember our big day!

As soon as we met Sam for our engagement pictures we got on really well. We were made to feel incredibly comfortable for people who don’t enjoy being in front of a camera normally.

On the wedding day Sam worked so, so hard from the second he arrived and didn’t leave until he was confident he had got every single moment of our Knepp Castle wedding that was important to us. And he really did. The ‘sneak peaks’ we saw on Facebook were just a small taster to the absolutely incredible set of shots that came delivered in the most incredible packaging, with a sweet treat in there too!

It’s as though Sam knew everyone at the wedding, because somehow he managed to capture everyones personality superbly. Each and every shot is stunning and it really has been a combination of the best of experiences paired with an exceptional outcome. There’s not one thing we’d change about our experience with Sam, apart from wishing we could have that fun all over again!


Having New Forest Studio’s take care of our New Forest wedding photography in April was the best wedding decision we made. We didn’t want the usual formal wedding photos, we wanted informal, natural photos that would tell the story of the day capturing moments that we might miss. New Forest Studio’s photos delivered that and much more. We have beautiful photos that give us cherished memories every time we look at them. The only problem we have now is how to choose our favourites! Sam at New Forest Studio is friendly, professional and above all incredibly talented. I would highly recommend him for any photography requirement. Thank you so much for our wonderful photos, everyone has commented on how amazing they are. Emma, Gavin and Hamish

We’ve had the most emotional time going through the incredible photographs from our festival wedding. The best decision we made was asking you to be our photographer for the day – you were so friendly and relaxed that all our guests thought you were a friend of ours 🙂 You were non-stop the whole day – even building my lego cake topper after I gave up! You were so patient with us and made us laugh the whole day. Your energy and enthusiasm for our day completely surpassed our expectations and you’ve given us unique images to treasure forever!
Big love from Erin & Ash xx


We first saw Sam at New forest studio wedding photography on his website and knew he was exactly what we were looking for to capture our wedding. We loved his ability to take natural photos of people whilst always including the beautiful scenery at the venues he covers.
We really put Sam to the test by having to conduct our calls via skype as we are based in Sydney, he was great and really listened to the brief and what we were looking for. Leading up to and on the day Sam was a joy to have around, he is very considerate of the situation on the day and made sure he struck the fine balance between getting all the desired shots but staying low key.
As for the results—- we couldn’t be happier the photos are amazing, the scenery looks amazing he has caught all of our friends and family having a wonderful time and shows the essence of our Kingscote Barn wedding day so well (loads of dancing and laughter) we have some amazing shots of Jon and I and we are so proud of our wedding photos. Thankyou Sam for your time and creativity.

Wow, what can we say, Sam was absolutely amazing!! We had such high expectations from Sam due to his fabulous website but he really and truly exceeded above and beyond what we thought was possible from a photographer. We cannot be happier with the array of photographs that Sam has provided us with. Perfectly Styled and Wonderfully Creative. A mix of Traditional meets new age vintage which was just perfect for our style of wedding. Every single moment of our day was captured beautifully by sam. He was wonderfully organised and extremely professional. Keen to be close enough to capture every details but far enough in the background to not even realise he was there. He really was a fantastic asset to our wedding day, he really made us feel at ease and the photographing experiences that arouse were really fun … we will always be grateful for our longlasting memories he has captured for us to keep forever. Thank you so much xx


Sam at New Forest Studio – thank you so much for the beautiful New Forest Wedding photography of our wedding day!

You captured the woodland setting brilliantly – and really went the extra mile – walking with all that equipment to a nearby field, just to get that perfect shot. I really love the arty nature of the photos, which capture the atmosphere – lots of our friends have been really taken by them (a far cry from the stuffy family photographer!). You were really subtle which put everyone at ease – some people though you were just one of the guests 🙂

Best of luck with the rest of the wedding season!

Sam is undoubtedly one of the best hampshire wedding photographers out there and we are thrilled we got him to take the photos for our special day.
From the moment we met Sam we knew he was exactly the right person for us; fun, friendly and enthusiastic. He made us feel at ease and his focus was always on what we wanted.
We took a tour around the venue before the big day which helped Sam come up with some fab ideas. On the day itself Sam was fantastic! He fitted in like a member of the family and operated so stealthily that he never got in the way and ended up with some great candid shots because of it.
Sam photographed everything I wanted and more. He helped us stay on track time wise as well which was a blessing! He returned in the evening to get all those must-have shots and got everything I could have wished for and more.
The images arrived on a USB pen less than two weeks later and they were all amazing! We can not praise his wedding photography enough and Sam was the absolute perfect choice. I can not recommend him highly enough!!


I would highly recommend New Forest Studio as Sam has produced a truly beautiful collection of photographs of our wedding. He completely captured our whole day perfectly with a balance between informal, formal and artistic images which we had discussed with him prior to our wedding. Not only did Sam photograph our wedding day, we also did a pre-wedding photography session with him. This was great idea as we got to know him and he got to know us! Sam made us feel completely at ease and was very helpful throughout the wedding, not only by suggesting locations for wedding photography, assisting with guests ready for photographs, but also with the time keeping! We are very pleased with the exceptional service we received both before, during and after the wedding. Friends who were unable to attend the wedding have looked at the photographs and have said that they felt as if they were there…. for us that is perfect! Thank you New Forest Studio

As soon as we saw Sam’s photos on his website we knew his style of wedding photography would be exactly what we wanted. From our first meeting to the wedding day Sam couldn’t have been more helpful and he had great ideas on what photos would work at our two venues. He fitted in so well on the day that we hardly knew he was there, it was just like having a friend take the photos. The photos he took are absolutely gorgeous and we’ve had so many compliments on them. He really captured the story of the day, from getting ready at the very beginning to the dancing at the very end. We can’t thank him enough for giving us wonderful memories of the day. Julie and Sam
