I found Kevin while excitedly scouring the internet for a photographer to hire for our wedding which was planned for around 18 months later in November 2017. As soon as I saw Kevin’s portfolio I instantly fell in love with his photography style and I wanted to book ASAP and reached out to him. Kevin is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and this was noticeable from his first communication with us.
We were invited over to Kevin’s home studio, which is so luxurious and comfortable btw, to discuss ideas, logistics and cost. As soon as we left the studio I turned to my husband and we both said “YES!” and made the booking. Kevin was in touch with us the whole time, despite us booking around 18 months in advance! He made the planning so easy and was such a pleasure to work with.
On the day Kevin was an absolute pleasure! He spent time getting to know everyone which definitely makes a difference. Kevin has such a calm way of working and despite it being the middle of November our guests didn’t mind being outside for the group photos as Kevin, and Mette our videographer, were so organised that it didn’t take long at all. The couple’s photo-shoot was so much fun and the photos were 100% worth freezing our butts off for! These two make a great team – super funny, and we honestly had such a great time.
Kevin stayed until after the first dance, having arrived at 10 am to capture the bridal preparations. He was super stealthy throughout the whole day and managed to eternalise some precious moments which would never have been seen otherwise. Something I must say is that Kevin did not feel like a photographer attending our wedding to provide a service, he felt like a friend who was a guest at our wedding who happened to be an amazing photographer. He is extremely professional and talented but also friendly and warm and someone who really will go that extra mile to get the perfect shot.
After the wedding, Kevin uploaded a few teaser images which were absolutely breath-taking and definitely got us so excited to see the rest. We went back into the studio to view the images and choose which ones we wanted in our album. We upgraded our album so we got to choose the colour of the album, the box it came in as well as the box for the USB stick and the hot stamping. These albums are extremely high quality and custom made to Kevin’s detailed specification along with the USB stick and its box. Yes, they are expensive but they are worth it – you will have your photos for life! We left the same day with our USB which had all of the images on and Kevin got started on a draft album layout for us to approve. This was so easy with the software Kevin uses and super quick too. Around 6 – 8 weeks later Kevin delivered our album as he was in the area and we were blown away with the quality of it.
As you can probably tell, I would not hesitate for a single second to recommend Kevin / Potters Instinct Photography to anyone and everyone I know.
