A big thank you for the wonderful photos. I had a really nice day shooting them with you - I felt completely at ease and was really impressed how you knew exactly what I wanted (even when I didn't!). I'm so pleased with the finished result and can't wait to put them up on my website. I'm not sure what magic you wove to make them look that good but thank you! I shall definitely be seeing you again soon for some more x"

"Philippa has done some personal shots for me which were lovely and she has also done some work for my business Goodypass.com. She is incredibly professional and produced excellent work - in various styles: formal, fun and reportage style. She worked with several celebrities on the job and they were all very pleased with the results!"

"Philippa's fast, no fuss or fiddle approach worked brilliantly for me! I can't pose and I hate being photographed, so she discreetly clicked away and produced a lovely selection of natural looking pictures.
Thank you Philippa!
It was a joy working with you."
"I had the great pleasure of working with Phil for a number of years, on big demanding weddings. Phil showed originality and a professional approach to the high levels required. Phil has charisma, a smile and a sound knowledge of the wedding and portrait industry. She will never disappoint."

"The pregnancy shots Philippa did of me 2 weeks before giving birth were, without doubt, the most flattering photos I have ever had taken. We also had a great laugh doing them. Since then, Phil has become a good friend and I have recommended her to loads of people for wedding and christening photos, pregnancy shots, baby photos and professional portraits for my TV presenter clients. Everyone has been delighted with the results".
Julia Champion - Director
”Philippa is a truly talented and professional photographer who gets the best out of her subjects. Whether it is party/club shots, pregnancy portraits, or just truly 'capturing that moment,' she is your girl. Phil always understand the brief and produces excellent results. We will always choose to work with her, whether it be corporate or personal.
Love your work and adore your fantastic attitude and just your way of doing things. Thank you for all the great shots you've done for us.”

“Phil has been taking great pictures for the Nunhead Voice for the last couple of years. She does this work on a pro bono (free of charge) basis as the Voice is published by a local charity. Phil always impresses us with her professionalism and creativity and she turns up on demand at any time, day or night. Her photos have really captured the spirit of the local community.
Colin Weatherup - Editor
“We really enjoyed working with Philippa and many of our guests have commented on how good she was on the day. The photos have attracted similarly complimentary remarks. Lots of people are jealous that they're so fun and not rigid and stuffy, like their own wedding photos.”
Andrea Henry - West London
"There are no words..... Oh, apart from OUTSTANDING.....!!! What a dream.... Thank you......"

"Philippa, thank you so much for capturing our wedding so beautifully. It wasn't exactly a "standard" wedding and we really appreciate your flexibility and positive attitude. We wanted our photos to be original and to really reflect "us". They did exactly that. Our guests commented on how fun you were when you were taking their photos and you made everyone feel relaxed and at ease. Our photos are amazing and we are so happy you were able to be our photographer!
Michael and Ros Angus - Melbourne
"Hi Phil, Amazing photos, a good mix of traditional, quirky and fun. You managed to capture everything Jess & Andrew wanted for their Tuscany wedding and more!! Actually I felt choked again when I saw the 'arrival of the bride'. You were totally non-intrusive, your easy manner was a Godsend. I would certainly recommend you and hope with two sons yet to wed, to meet you again! The only problem now is choosing.
Thank you so much,
Lynette" (Mother of the bride) & (Auntie) Mandy said...
"Hi Phil, I have just had a look at the slide show and just had to comment. They are stunning pictures I love the naturalness of them and in all honesty have never seen wedding pictures like them. Jessica and Andrew must be delighted. I think you worked really hard on that day and by the end you must have been exhausted! It was a real pleasure to meet you and watch you work - I love watching people with a passion for what they do. x"
"Very, very, very, very, very, very brilliant pictures of a super happy day.. almost a pity it is all over. Thank you. P"
Philip Struhler (Groom) - Hamburg, Germany
Thank you so much for the amazing photos! It was such a fun day and I think you definitely captured that.
There is a really good mixture of the traditional shots and the more fun ones which is really good!
I can't wait to get the final pictures!
Many thanks again!
Love Helen and Rols! xx" - South East London
Well done on such a fine job in taking all of those excellent pictures at the wedding of my niece last month - you have a great gift - God bless your work.

"Thank you for capturing our wedding day in such a beautiful light. You made it fun and relaxed even though there was a huge list of photos we wanted. The photo book was a brilliant summary of the day too, all our friends have given us such compliments after seeing it! Best of all, the photo of us bending back takes pride of place on our wall, it really seemed to capture what we are all about....fun!!
Thanks so much."
Heather and Richard Palmer - Reading, BERKS
Thanks for making our special day even more memorable! You have been amazing, to do such super work and on such short notice too!! (and you can quote me on that!!)"

Paul Donahue - South East London
"We just wanted you to know how glad we are that it was you who did the photography at Peter and Hilary's wedding. Without being too intrusive you managed to capture the atmosphere brilliantly and to create an ideal record of the occasion. There were just the right number of photos to produce a comprehensive wedding album but for those who just wanted to have a few photos, you made it easy to obtain these without breaking the bank"
Regards, Diana and Ian Cairns - Norfolk
"Hi Phil, Just got a moment to let you know how brilliant we think the photos are, you really did a great job. Thanks very much!"
Hilary & Peter Cairns - Norfolk
I have just looked through all of the pictures you took for me and I am truly happy with them, in fact I am finding it difficult to select which ones will go on the my website. It was great to work with, you just merged into the yoga session at times we forgot you were there snapping away. Thank you so much.
Ps. It was really special to work with somebody else that shares an equal fascination of the 'baby belly'!

"I LOVE the photos, they are amazing! You managed to capture each different place (and dress!), you are very clever. I usually hate myself in photos so you must have a bit of magic going on. It was great to meet you and look forward to seeing you when you are next in this little village so keep me posted. Perhaps some baby pics....."
Georgie Maw - Wiltshire

"I had lots of fun experimenting with clothing and concepts during the photo shoot and Philippa made me feel very relaxed and pretty. The pictures are spectacular, they captured the positive emotions I was filled with during pregnancy perfectly.

The pictures of my bump are simply brilliant, thank you so much."
Azka Raja - South East London
"Having my bump photos taken by Philippa was a wonderful experience and I loved, loved, loved the end result. I would highly recommend her.
Love Sherri xx"
"Philippa photographed my husband and me with our nine month old - she was unbelievably quick and fuss free. I was convinced because there were three of us, including a little wriggler, that we'd be lucky to get one decent photo. When the pictures arrived we honestly could have framed at least twenty of them! She managed to get us all looking so natural and relaxed that everyone who comes to our home comments on her incredible work.
Now we've had another baby, her next challenge is to photograph the four of us!!
Good Luck Phil - you're amazing! X"
Vickie White - Whitstable, Kent
Thank you so much. There are some really lovely pics here... Lila looks gorgeous. You're brilliant, thank you xx"

"Hey Phil, just wanted to say a big thank you for your amazing pics. You are a truly wonderful photographer. Will let you know when our websites are live and the link is up. Many thanks again, you have a fan for life. Spreading the word for Newland Portraits is the least we can do. Big love to you and all the family,

"It was a pleasure working with Philippa, she approached the shoot in a very natural and confident manner allowing her to help the models feel immediately relaxed and responsive to her guidance. The results were fantastic, exactly as the brief requested.
I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again."
Dave Gough, Director, Psand Limited - Wiltshire
“In the short time it took for Philippa to take loads of shots, she managed to bring out my sunny side and capture it brilliantly on film. A job well done.”
Adrian Simpson - East Sussex
"Philippa's really good at making her subjects feel comfortable. I'm usually terribly awkward in front of a camera, but Philippa had me in stitches, so her shots caught me at my most natural. I'd recommend Philippa to anyone who's shy of the lens but not shy of having a good laugh.
Having your photo taken should be fun!
Philip Clarke - South East London
"I have had the pleasure of being both photographed by Philippa and watching her in action at shows and events. From a performer’s perspective, it’s incredibly refreshing to be photographed by someone in a way that doesn’t interfere with the moment, but rather lends itself to the moment like water to a glass. Her pictures have captured more than the image of my work, but the moment itself. This is a skill that many photographers simply don’t possess.
I would highly recommend Philippa.
