Testimonial

“Being a sculptor producing Bronze birds, the images on my website and in my catalogue are critical. Hanna has been photographing my work for over 8 years and I wouldn't entrust the task to anyone else. She has an amazing eye and always manages to exceed my expectations, a true artist...” - Andrew Glasby

We have had the honour of using Bourne Photographic Studios for all of our photo’s, from family photos and cake smash photoshoots to pet portraits. Their impeccable timing and ability to capture real life moments and personalities in a snap shot is incredible. We can now treasure these precious moments through the beautiful photo wall that we have been able to create in our home. A huge thank you for being so amazing at what you do ” - Charlotte Smith

"I had my first fitness shoot with Bourne photographic studios and the experience couldn't have been more amazing! Hanna made sure I was comfortable at all times and had ideas that I wouldn't have thought of. The studio is ideal for all kinds of shoots and the photos turned out beautiful. Hanna's work made the whole day one to remember! Thanks guys!" – Megan Harding

“Bourne photographic studios were recommended to me by a friend and I’m so glad we listened! Hanna and Sarah are the very best at what they do! They have created a wonderful friendly family atmosphere at their studio and the photos taken are just gorgeous. I’ve been taking my little girl there since she was three months old and I would not go anywhere else. They capture priceless moments in time and I honestly cannot recommend these ladies highly enough they’re absolutely fabulous!” - Kristina Kidd

“Wow, what to say about these fantastic ladies...! We first visited Bourne Photographic Studios in October last year for a newborn photoshoot with our son having been recommended by a friend. Since then we have called in for their fantastic mini pop in shoots for Mother's Day and Father's Day and Sarah was our photographer when we got married in August. Sarah and Hanna are so welcoming and full of energy and the photos we have had from them over the last year are absolutely beautiful. Sarah was the only photographer we approached for our wedding, having felt so at ease with her during our sons newborn shoot. We knew she was the perfect photographer for our special day. She puts her heart and soul into her work and captures moments so naturally you'd hardly realise she was there. We didn't want lots of only "staged" photos and when we looked through the images afterward it was wonderful to see so many moments captured that we hadn't realised. Thank you both so much, nothing we've asked has ever been too much trouble.” - Paula and Trevor Pedersen

“We had an amazing family photo shoot at Bourne Photographic Studios. Sarah and Hanna make you feel so welcome and the photographs were fantastic. Sarah is so patient with the children and makes the shoot so much fun. Highly recommend, we wouldn’t go anywhere else!” – Ruth Lister

"I took my high energy, not always friendly Labrador for a pet photo shoot with Bourne Photographic after winning the prize in a raffle.  I had always been put off taking my dog to be photographed as he's not always happy meeting new people.  I explained this on the phone and the team were so accommodating giving us time for my dog to have a giving him chance to have a sniff and mooch about before hand and getting him used to the flash and studio sounds.  Armed full of treats the photo shoot went like a dream, the team are fab, my dog behaved amazingly and the photos came out brilliantly.  My photo-phobic self was also made to feel at ease to have my own picture taken too. It was a very fun hour.  The experience didn't end there either.  On collection of the photos I was taken to a viewing area with a comfy sofa where the pictures were put up on the big screen.  We went through options for printing and at no point was I put under pressure to buy... there were options to suit all budgets also.  I did indeed purchase two beautifully framed pictures of my dog and the rest were given to me on a memory stick to keep or print.  I will be recommending and visiting again for sure with the rest of the family in time.  Thank you ladies for such a fab day." – Laura Liddaman

Sarah did a baby photo shoot for our new born baby and us. She was amazing, patient and she was fine with us feeding him etc and didn't rush us at all. We all felt so comfortable having the photos done and also they have come out amazing! Our whole family love the pics! Thank you so much for a great experience we will definitely be back” – Hannah Gash

“I've used Bourne photographic studios a couple times now and I will defiantly continue to use them in the future. Not only was we extremely happy with the outcome of our photographs, we loved how friendly and comfortable they made us feel once we arrived. It was nice to have our photos taken in such a happy environment and with having little ones and a new born at the time aswell they were very patient and understanding. I look forward to using them in the future!” – Jessica Hart

I wanted to express my thanks to both Sarah & Hanna, the photos you created of my 3 children were phenomenal, not only because we now have several photos of them all looking and smiling at the same time, but because of the way you got them, having children with autism means facing many challenges, but despite Sarah booking out the whole afternoon expecting it to be difficult to photograph them well, within minutes we had the prefect photos and this was down to her fantastic approach and calming influence. I met Hanna several years ago when she first photographed my dogs at an event, and poor Hanna as had to go on to photograph many of my pets, and even multi task the trick of dogs & children in the same photo! I was so happy to see her open Bourne Photographic Studios, and now any family photos ever required I always give the challenge to Hanna & Sarah.” – Steph Jennings

My family and I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. We had a warm welcome from both Hanna and Sarah in reception where we were offered drinks and a super session with Sarah. The ladies have a great rapport with the children and made the session fun and relaxed. Sarah listened to what I wanted to get out of the session, and the result was perfect. Could not recommend enough and we will be back every year for our photos.”- Sara Lowndes

From the first meeting with Sarah, we knew we would be in safe hands with our wedding photography. Sarah is very outgoing with her work and has a solid understanding of what she does. When we started discussing our ideas, we didn’t have a big idea of what we were looking for to start with but then Sarah started pumping her ideas and thoughts to us, which may seem daunting, but don’t be put off because the results speak for themselves. When we had our second meeting and had compiled a list of specific photos we wanted, Sarah and Hanna took all this onboard and discussed each one with us and spoke more with us about what we could expect of them on the day and what they would be doing. Upon arrival of the big day, Sarah and Hanna arrived promptly at the bride/groom’s houses for photos at each home before hand, and they were both wonderful from start to finish. Throughout the day both photographers were as discreet as could be, they weren’t intrusive at all and you didn’t even notice they were there. They frequently will check that you are alright and getting the photos that you want as well as suggesting photos in various locations and unusual settings. To add to our day Hanna asked us if we were wanted her to stay slightly later than planned so that we could get some pictures of our band and guests dancing at our reception.

Once we received the edited photos we were absolutely over the moon with the results. Having the copyright free memory stick has made showing family the photos really easy. We received all of our photos in both colour and black and white. We have also been given the option of sending the photo reference number over and having some of the black and white photos edited to include flashes of colour from our day.

We would highly recommend Bourne Photographic studios to anyone requiring a photographer whether it be on site or in the studio without any shadow of a doubt. The service is second to none. With nothing being too much trouble for either photographer both on the day and with the after service of the viewing and editing of the photographs.” – Martin & Jordan Smith
