Testimonials - John Bernard Photography

Testimonials from clients

Emma & Stuart

From the very beginning, John was very enthusiastic regarding our wedding & began his work months before the actual wedding date.

His early ideas and photo’s helped build up our wedding book and I can honestly say, it can only be described as a piece of art!

Throughout our working relationship, we found John to be a very welcoming, friendly & conscientious individual who takes great pride in his work.  We cannot thank him enough for capturing the most important day of our life, perfectly.

Without doubt, we would not hesitate to recommend John and fully intend to use his services in the future.


Hazel & Paul

We have had several photography sessions with John including pregnancy, newborn and baby.

We were delighted with his work and we now have some beautiful reminders of a very special time in our lives.  John put a lot of thought and preparation into each photo shoot.  On the day he listened to what we wanted and he was patient and flexible, which is important when dealing with children.  He also spent a lot of time on post-production to make sure that the pictures were just perfect.

It is clear that John takes a lot of pride in his work and his priority was creating pictures which we would be pleased with.  He goes that extra mile and this is what makes him special.

We would highly recommend John as a photographer - we only wish that he could have taken our wedding photographs!


John did several portraits of my nephews, which were of several different styles and poses and of which were taken inside his studio and outside in a woodland setting.

Not only were they wonderfully done but he took great care and time to make sure the boys looked as natural as possible taking great care with the light and putting the boys at ease, his patience with my nephews who are 11 and 9 one with learning difficulties was second to none, I would therefore recommend John to anyone and will be getting more done in the future.

Hazel & James

I was very pleased when John suggested capturing some outside images of my daughter who was wearing her 'fairy' dress. John located the perfect location and the outcome was fantastic. My daughter looks like she has her very own fairy glen, just stunning

Marie & Steven

I have a variety of John's work displayed in my home, from baby memory book (1st year) to large canvass and ultra modern glossy aluminium prints.  I love every picture as John is able to capture my children's personality.  I feel his images capture a certain warmth and I am looking forward to finding a place in my home for his latest pictures of my youngest son.

Gillian & Iain

What can we say……only a true professional would take the time, as John did, to wait for a crying fit to subside and then cheerfully snap away.  Our baby daughter wasn’t the easiest of models!  He even did a second shoot in our own home to capture the photos he was unable to achieve from his first shoot.  His patience, creativity, humour and passion helped to make the whole experience a great success.  

We now have beautiful photographs capturing those first precious moments with our little daughter.  

Thank you John, your photographs are truly worth sharing.

Lyn & Fraser

Generally we avoid having our picture taken and were a little apprehensive about having family portraits done,  however after meeting John we were immediately put at ease.  He listened to what we wanted and was keen to capture pictures which reflected us as family.  

Throughout, he kept a calm, unflappable demeanor, and was happy to take a break whenever our baby son got restless.  

As a result, we have lovely pictures, finished to a high standard.  

John is a true professional, who clearly takes a great deal of pride in his work.  We would happily recommend him to friends and family, and will definitely use him again in the future.
