Photography is my full time occupation so its my aim to ensure clients are completely satisfied with the quality of my work and service.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY at the Hythe Imperial Hotel 2018


Dear John,

We're really delighted with the photos you took at our wedding in May. Based on the discussions we had with you prior to the wedding, you gave us exactly what we'd requested and at a very reasonable price.
The photos are of an excellent quality and we love the way that you captured all the key aspects of our special day in such an unobtrusive way. We would definitely come back to you again as well as recommend you to family and friends.

With sincere thanks,
Des and Marion

We have had excellent feedback from friends and family on the quality of your photos John. I’ve copied a few lines from an email from my great friend in Melbourne for you to see:
“I’ve just completed my way through the pics of your special wedding day, all I can say is how wonderful they are and what a great job the photographer did I don't think I've seen a better capture of a wedding day as this one, you should both be very happy with the results.”

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY with Josh & Rose 22nd July 2017 : I couldn't of been happier thank you so much you did a fantastic job and would never have anyone else thank you catching every perfect moment I can't wait for everyone to see Them.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY at The Secret Garden from Paris Allston 2017 : Comment on Facebook : I will never get bored of looking at those photos! Your work has been nothing short of superb and we would have no problem using you again or recommending you to friends/family!

NEW YEARS EVE PARTY 2016/17 - Anita :
You have done a wonderful job and are really happy with the pictures youve captured the evening brilliantly.

WEDDING at NETTLESTEAD PLACE, Maidstone, Kent. - Angela and Nigel Barham.
Having discovered John's business by chance online, we would thoroughly recommend his wedding photography. We were impressed by his portfolio at our first meeting and having seen other photographers, knew his informal, relaxed style was just what we were looking for.
Two weeks before our wedding, we met at Nettlestead Place for a pre-wedding shoot. During this time we discussed the photos for the day which John then sent to us as a timed plan.
On the day, all went to plan (including the weather!).Both ourselves and our guests felt relaxed. We are delighted with the quality of the photos. Our friends and relatives have all been impressed.
At all times, John's service has been friendly,professional and prompt.
Angela and Nigel Barham.

Hi John,
Just wanted to say a big Thankyou for the photographs, they are fabulous and everyone is really chuffed!
You made it easy for us and fun too!!
With best wishes,

How fortunate Sian and I were in asking you to be the official photographer at our wedding last October, at Eastwell Manor. The rapport established at our very first meeting left us with no doubts about our choice, and the results are everything, indeed much more, of what we were hoping for. Your technical expertise, coupled with your artistic flair, have produced a wonderful and permanent reminder of a magical day. Thank you for everything.

FEEDBACK 31st March 2013 via facebook
Leanne Delcies Mummy Thank u for making us feel welcome and relaxed. Lovely photos. Recommended John Lynch he's amazing!!!

Hi John,
I just wanted to say another big thank you for all the fantastic photos you produced from our shoot in January.
Being a person that is always very apprehensive to have their picture taken, you made us all feel totally at ease which resulted in us getting pictures that were far better than we ever hoped for and were too hard to choose between.
Looking forward to our repeat booking with the extended family later this year.
Thanks again.
Phil and Camilla P
