When we first found out our original wedding photographer had gone bankrupt less than 6 months before our June wedding we obviously panicked at the thought of starting the whole process again.... Luckily for us we had been recommended Sam by family & friends and to our joy Sam was available to photograph our special day.

Sam is such a genuine guy so friendly, extremely professional and you can see the passion he has for his work. He knew exactly how we wanted our day to be captured nothing forced all natural and he captured everything and more.

He arrived at my mother’s house in the morning to capture the special moments and we didn’t even realise Sam was there snapping away, he then moved on to our stunning venue and took the most amazing pictures of our venue while waiting for the wedding party to arrive.

All our guests commented throughout the day how friendly Sam is and that he just stood back and took pictures without getting in the way of anyone. Our pictures are absolutely stunning and I love my wedding album so much he captured our day beautifully and I am so happy we had Sam to share our day.

We would highly recommend Sam Sanders Photography to anyone and look forward to seeing him at future friend’s wedding.

Thank you so much!!!

Charlotte & Dave, Wigan

Due to our wedding being planned in less than four months, we didn’t have much time to decide on a photographer. However we didn’t need much time as our minds were made up from our first consultation with Sam. We were really impressed with the examples he showed us. It was clear how he gives so much attention to detail. From our special day, we received hundreds of fabulous photographs and a wedding album documenting the day from start to finish. Thank you Sam!

Mark & Alison, St Helens

Sam has a relaxed and professional style which quickly put us at ease from the first meeting through to receiving our fabulous photos. It may seem like a small touch but Sam was dressed smartly for our wedding which meant he blended as part of the ceremony.

During the speeches I was completely unaware that Sam was taking photos as were our guests - this was exactly what we had wanted.

Sam has a great eye for detail which resulted in some lovely personal photographs of moments we had perhaps missed.  

We love looking through our photo album and everyone who has seen it comment on how lovely it is.

Lisa & Nathan Kenny

We were so nervous looking for a wedding photographer but as soon as we came across Sam's website we knew we had to call him. Sam came to our home with his work and we immediately knew he was the one to photograph our special day.

Sam arrived at our wedding venue and introduced himself to my family and bridesmaid. He then began his work and we didn't even notice Sam was in the room with us. Sam interacted amazingly with my young daughter and god-daughter giving us memories that we will treasure forever.

Sam took photographs of our ceremony and captured our family shots

afterwards. Sam took every family photograph on my list and more. I cannot begin to tell you how many people commented on how polite, friendly and professional our photographer was. After the ceremony Sam took my husband and I for some photographs alone. Sam made us feel at ease the whole time and captured so many beautiful pictures.

We chose the 3 hour midweek package for our wedding day and we never once felt that Sam was rushing us to do anything, everything was done on our time scale whenever we where ready. The amount of photographs we received on our USB was amazing.

Sam is a fantastic photographer and we cannot thank him enough for all of the precious memories he gave us to look back on. We would highly recommend Sam to anybody looking for a photographer.

Thank you Sam

Linda and Will Broxson

We contacted Sam Sanders Photography to take some photographs for our wedding and I have to say he did a wonderful job.  He helped the day run smoothly and we were overwhelmed as to how they turned out. Thank you very much for your hard work, we appreciate it so much.

Mike and Karen, Southport

After spending a long time searching for a photographer for our wedding, we came across Sam Sanders Photography and knew instantly that he would be the photographer for us. We particularly liked how Sam was creative in his work by including photographs of clocks in the background so that you could see the time the photograph was taken and also using a newspaper to place the wedding rings on so that the date was included. Such creativeness was just what we was looking for!From the moment we met with Sam to discuss our wedding, we felt at ease and comfortable working with him due to his polite and friendly manner. It was clear from the start that Sam was enthusiastic and passionate about his work when we met with him prior to the wedding to make arrangements and select the package we wanted.  We decided to go for the Gold package as we wanted to have photographs taken from the bridal preparations up until the first dance. This was also a very reasonable price compared to other photographers. Sam arrived at my parents’ house at 10.00am on the morning of the wedding. Sam had his work cut out with my Dad who is very talkative to say the least but remained professional throughout the day and interacted with all the family. I didn’t even notice that Sam was there and was surprised at some of the memories he had captured without me knowing.He also works really well with children and took some lovely photographs of my niece that I will treasure. Photographs taken during the ceremony and the speeches were amazing and captured our emotions and those of family and friends from moments of tears to moments of laughter. The photographs were so natural, they exceeded our expectations. I had provided Sam with a list of group photographs that we had wanted and he made sure that all these were taken, demonstrating excellent communication and organizational skills to say the least. Unfortunately, it was pouring down when I arrived at the venue but Sam made good use of the bad weather in the photographs taken of me leaving the wedding car which I love, so not all bad. I actually wouldn’t wish that it wasn’t raining now after seeing the photographs.The sun decided to make an appearance after the meal so Sam took us to the nearby canal and he got some excellent shots of us walking past the canal boats. Following the wedding, Sam organised to meet with us to design our

wedding album. He spent at least two hours with us doing this and all his hard work and effort paid off because we are so pleased with our album and can’t thank him enough. The lay flat album is such a good idea, allowing us to have a photograph

across both pages which looks incredible. Sam is such an amazing photographer that puts his all in to what he does and achieves remarkable results. I would like to thank Sam for capturing all those precious moments for us to look back at and would highly recommend Sam to others. You will not be disappointed!

Callum and Victoria, Hindley

We have had the pleasure of meeting Sam on two occasions for our indoor family portrait session and an extended family portrait session taken outdoors in the local woods.  On both occasions Sam has made us feel completely at ease and captured the essence of our family in a magnificent and reflective way.  The children in our family range from 4-12 years and they engaged so well with Sam on both shoots which helped make some lovely memories.  Sam is a wonderful photographer and an absolute

pleasure to work with, we couldn’t recommend him highly enough.  Thank you for our wonderful memories on film!

Michelle, Standish

From our first meeting, when our original wedding photographer cancelled, Sam was so friendly, professional and very passionate about what he does and the reassurances he gave at the time, that we would not be left in the lurch again, put us at ease. We are both so grateful for all the hard work he did.  Sam has worked above and beyond any of our expectations (managing to take the external photos of the church before our wedding, between work schedules when there was no scaffolding, was a lovely surprise and makes the album complete).

Our pictures are absolutely stunning and from the little details he photographed all add to the memories of the day.  All our guests commented on how brilliant Sam was and that he was so quiet and discreet.  It is a lovely touch that he provided a copy of all photographs on as USB pen free of charge.

Sometimes things happen for a reason and despite the stress of having to find another photographer, we are glad it happened because we got someone with a fantastic creative flare, who captured everything about our wedding day in a beautifully designed and treasured wedding album.  We would highly recommend  Sam Sanders Photography to anyone.  

Thank you.

Nico and Carole, Warrington

After spending many hours searching the internet for a photographer for our wedding, we discovered Sam Sanders Photography!

Gorgeous pictures and amazing prices. Sam was the ONLY photographer we had a meeting with, as soon as we met him, we knew he was the one! Straight away, he understood what we wanted from him; the styling, the set up, the look, everything!

We booked Sam there and then for our photography package (bridal prep to first dance) - and we couldnt have made a better choice. He arrived for the bridal prep and straight away became part of the bridal party! Making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. He snapped away and captured moments we never thought he could, and we hardly even notice he was there!

Sam is an absolute pleasure to work with, he took all the pictures we wanted and more, and he even tried some new, fun, quirky styles to make it individual to us (which we loved!). We had all the shots we wanted; formal ones, fun ones, posing ones, family ones, natural ones.... you name it, we got it! I honestly cant recommend him highly enough - he did an amazing job and captured the day perfectly!

Paul and Melanie, Liverpool

What can I say.. From day one Sam has been such a pleasure to deal with! His 'no pressure' approach was a dream, especially when planning a wedding!  We knew from the first time he came to see us for a non-obligation visit that we wanted him as our photographer, due to his easy going personality yet extreme professionalism. The samples of his work were stunning and straight away he understood exactly the style of photography we liked!

To have someone be such a big part of your wedding and put so much trust in them is difficult, but Sam made it so easy and our decision obviously paid off well!

From arriving at my bridal suite first thing, Sam caught images that I completely forgot about, yet we didn't know he was even there!  The 'candid camera' style shots were our favourite.. As they caught the most unexpected, fabulous photos and when I see them photos now straight away I know what I was laughing at, what we were saying etc they bring back so many amazing memories!

We are in love with our story book.. And have been showing it off ever since. The glossy, lay flat version is simply stunning and We are so glad we chose this option in the end :-)

Our parents are over the moon with their mini books, and have been showing them off to their friends also!

We will (and have been) recommending Sam Sanders Photography to anyone looking for a photographer, and are simply jealous that they may get to do it all again with him!

From the bottom of our hearts Sam, Thank you!

Antony and Beccy, St Helens

Nigel and Lesley, Shevington

On May 11th 2013 Sam arrived at my wedding venue with camera ready a smile and a very friendly attitude. He started straight away most of the time we didn't even notice he was taking pictures. His approach was very relaxing and very professional even my two little girls really liked him. He interacted with all of our guests and the outcome was spectacular we could not be anymore happier with the results we got. When you hire Sam you can be sure your in safe hands from the pre wedding shoot to you big day his prices were amazing and the quality is second to none. We will be hiring Sam again very soon and plan to now  have him on our speed dial for all occasions. We can not thank Sam enough, I have recommended Sam to everyone I know and will continue to do so.Thank you Sam for your amazing talent and skill love Mr and Mrs Duffy.

Andrew  and Danielle, Rochdale

On the 9th March 2013 Sam did our pictures are amazing. We both sat together last night to look through them, the both of us speechless and overcome with emotion with the memories and story the pictures told. I have so so many favourites. Im one very happy lady this morning. Absolutely, amazing, outstanding talented work Sam. We love them! I have them on a slide show on my PC now and probably will all day every day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

John and Jane, Skelmesdale

Sam did our wedding photography at Shaw Hill Golf and Country Club in Chorley. There are no words to describe his professionalism and the way he interacted with all our guests. The set ups for each photo were incredible and thing we would never have thought of! Sams friendly, down to earth persona made for a relaxing atmosphere while have the shots of myself and the groom.  We felt extremely at ease like we were a friend, and so comfortable in his company.  We would highly recommend him for your special occasion and we cannot wait to see our photos! Thanks you very much.

Mr and Mrs Watson, Wigan

Thank you Sam for capturing the memorable moments if our special day. We appreciated your refreshing and accommodating approach, adding to the atmosphere of the day in spite of the rain and wind. Thank you!

Michael and Victoria, Wigan

Sam photographed our wedding in August. We found him to be a consummate professional and a genuinely pleasant person who put all the guests at ease, many of them commented on his lovely manner.  The photographs themselves are excellent and we are really pleased with them.

Paul and Kerry, Chorley

Sam was great with our daughter, she was completely at ease with him which made it possible to get some really playful and relaxed shots. Sam took a large variety of photos so we were spoilt for choice when choosing our favourites. We would highly recommend him.

Lauren and James, Wigan

Thank you for providing us with such amazing pictures of our big day! You delivered exactly what we were hoping for and beyond, with beautiful, creative pictures that have really blown us away! We can’t stop looking at them and showing them off!! Your friendliness and professionalism made it so easy for us, so again THANK YOU !!

Stuart and Priscilla, Liverpool

Sam photographed our wedding in August. From the first meeting to handing over the final album Sam was a total professional. His warm, friendly manner put us at ease straight away. During the wedding day Sam worked so hard to make sure that our photos were perfect without taking up valuable time on our special day.

I have to say we were astounded with the results, the pictures are everything we could have wished for and more. Our album is something to treasure and everyone who has looked at it is amazed!

I couldn't recommend Sam highly enough. Well worth the money and more!

Ben and Mel, Wigan

From the first time we met him, Sam made us feel at ease. Our children took to him straight away, which for me was a great sign!  He was very obviously passionate about his work and demonstrated high standards in terms of the service that he likes to provide. The wedding packages are excellent value for money and we were really impressed with the fact that we would be given all the photos on a memory stick to keep at no extra cost, which is pretty unique in comparison to other photographers I had looked at. He spent time getting to know us and was really interested in finding out what we wanted in terms of photography, for our wedding day. The pictures he took totally captured the different emotions of our wedding day and were so natural (both me and Dave were surprised by the fact we didn't suffer jaw ache on the day as our smiling was captured naturally and not in false poses) and told the story from start to finish. Sam spent a long time discussing and deciding the layout for the album with us in order to make sure it accurately reflected our wedding day story and we are over the moon with the result. The storybook album is outstanding in terms of quality, layout and content and i can't stop looking at it. It is a beautiful treasure to keep. I have already been recommending him to family and friends and will happily continue to do so.

Bernie and Dave, Newton Le Willows

Sam’s approach to photography was very refreshing, he quickly banished my preconceptions of what a photo shoot may entail and made me feel entirely at ease.

Sam’s presence was both supportive and discrete which allowed me to act naturally with the client I was training. I believe this is what makes Sam so unique in that he is clearly quite gifted to be able to capture the natural beauty of life in his photos without over manufacturing the shot. In a sea of identical images, Sam’s photographs stand out as being natural and genuine. I can highly recommend Sam’s work for anyone seeking the extraordinary.

John Machin, Personal Trainer and Bootcamp Instructor

Sam was great with our daughter, she was completely at ease with him which made it possible to get some really playful and relaxed shots. Sam took a large variety of photos so we were spoilt for choice when choosing our favourites. We would highly recommend him.

Lauren & James, Wigan

I booked Sam to take some pictures of my children. Not really knowing what to expect I was nervous with how the children would be, but he was fantastic!  He really put us all at ease and got some gorgeous pictures of my children. I Would highly recommend him to anyone, he captures the most beautiful pictures.
