What Brides and Grooms say about us
“We cannot recommend Ally and AJ from Stonelock highly enough. We are so pleased that we met Ally and AJ at our local wedding fair. We were initially drawn to their style of photography and as soon as we started talking to them we knew we would feel really comfortable with them on our wedding day, exceeding expectations.
Ally and AJ invested a huge amount of time in us in the run-up to the wedding. We had a number of catch-ups (they kindly came to a venue local to us each time to make things easy for us, they genuinely put us at the centre of the process) where we discussed timings, shots and getting to know each other. This meant a lot to us. The effort they put in to build a genuine relationship had a huge impact on their ability to integrate into friends and family on the day and capture the best possible moments for us. Ally and AJ really did feel like members of our bridal party and worked so hard to capture the day that we had planned.
We knew the photos would be wonderful but what also stood out for us was the way in which Ally and AJ ensured that everything ran to plan on the day, from helping out with buttonholes and veils to coordinating guests as an extra pair of hands when the venue required. They really got to understand what was important to us and ensured that everything ran like clockwork.
The resulting photos were better than we could have ever hoped for, and we’re so pleased to have met two of the nicest people you could hope to have there on your big day. A huge thank you, and we would comfortably use Ally and AJ again without hesitation.” Lisa & David, 2019
“Absolutely incredible photography! We adore our wedding photo’s. Ally & AJ are so down to earth and friendly, we cannot recommend them enough. They truly captured the best bits of the day all while making us and our guests feel at ease. Love them!” Sammi & Dave, 2017
“We knew we wanted a husband & wife photography team, because we wanted to capture the moments individually and separately. We shortlisted two companies. Having spoken to both, we decided to go with Stonelock because we prefer our pictures to be as natural as possible. We made the right (and best) decision! Ally has great attention to details and the special touches, e.g. a hand-written note, always brought a smile to our faces! From the pre-wedding shoot to the actual day, everything was done in perfect harmony and we are pleased with the final products. Thank you Ally & AJ!” Arno & Millicent, December 2017
“Choosing the right wedding photographer was a top priority for us. On meeting Ally and AJ we felt immediately comfortable with them and they were able to put any worries we had at ease. We highly recommend the engagement photo shoot because it meant we knew exactly what we needed to do on the wedding day and we were confident Ally and AJ would create beautiful shots. Our guests complimented their unobtrusive approach and they were quick to come up with plan B when the heavens decided to open. We are the kind of people that don’t really enjoy having their photo taken and we were understandably nervous about our wedding photography but with Stonelock Photography, we received beautiful photos that we felt really captured the love and happiness shown that day. We couldn’t be happier with our choice and would recommend them to all of our friends and family”. Tanya & Jonathan, May 2017
“Wow, Wow, WOW! Ally & AJ the photos are amazing! We are absolutely thrilled to bits with them! You’ve managed to capture so much of our special day, a HUGE thank you. It’s been great fun looking through them and reminiscing on the best day of our life – take us back!
We especially love the reception photos, a few really made us giggle! And the silhouette ones of our first dance are just stunning, how on earth you managed to capture the moment like that we don’t know?! The bride and groom ones are wonderful too, what a fun photo shoot, if a little warm! And I love the arty nature of some of the detailed shots of the rings, flowers, car, accessories.
We can’t wait to share them with our friends and family! We really are over the moon with the quality, quantity, style and range of the photos and can’t thank you enough. These photos will truly be treasured for many, many years to come.” Sarah & Rob, July 2016
“If you are looking for a wedding photographer, then I cannot recommend these guys highly enough. They truly excel in every part of the process and the proof is in the wonderful photographs that we now have to remember our special day.
Ally & AJ have their own unique style that sets them apart from every other wedding photographer. They possess an amazing skill to capture all those unseen moments that happen between the bride & groom, and also the interactions between the guests on the day…I believe they should be spies as they were so unobtrusive yet they managed to see and more importantly capture all the key moments throughout the day. It was such a joy to look through the gallery as we literally re-lived the day and we also got to enjoy some fantastic moments between guests.
The whole process is collaborative and in their thorough pre-wedding planning, they ensure that all your wants are understood and they make a detailed plan for the day to ensure everything runs smoothly and as efficiently as possible. They really understand the importance of getting the right balance of directed shots but not impeding on the day. They are a pleasure to be around and they will feel like an extension of your wedding party.” Tai & Janine, 2015
“We are so thrilled with the photo’s taken on our wedding day! Each one is unique and captures the day so perfectly. AJ and Ally’s incredible attention to detail ensured that even the tiniest details of our day were not missed. We feel that we have a collection of stunning photos that will always help us to relive every moment of our wedding day! We would recommend Stonelock photography to everyone, you would be hard pressed to find such a hard working, talented and lovely couple to capture your day!” Chris & Nic, 2014
“Ally and AJ photographed our wedding and they did a beautiful job. Not only did we get a great end product, a huge variety of lovely pictures, but they steered us so well through the whole process. They were enthusiastic, helpful and flexible throughout and took a lot of trouble to put everyone at their ease and help the day run smoothly.” Alex & Rachel, 2014
“We really love the photos and our families want them all to hang on their walls! We honestly felt so good because we know you are professionals and would make us look beautiful!” JP & Becky, 2013
