JUST A FEW OF THE MANY COMMENTS RECEIVED:
"Choosing our photographer on our wedding day was, many people reminded us, one of the most important decisions around getting married. These pictures are the most important ones of your life and will be on display for evermore. So it was with great fortune that we were able to have Vicki as our wedding photographer! Well before the day she made sure she understood what we wanted, what the timetable of the day was and all the important people to capture which gave us great peace of mind. On the day itself she could not have been more impressive, somehow managing to be both unobtrusive but also becoming a fun part of the day herself and, most importantly, capturing all the most special moments. The photos and dvd we received were everything we could have hoped for and more. Thank you Vicki, you were amazing!" Henry & Kate Aylett
Dear Vicki, Our wedding photos are the most precious thing we have. We won't ever be able to thank you enough for the memories. Love Mike and Felicity xx (note sent with piece of their wedding cake 1 year after they got married).
"From the moment we met Vicki, we knew she was the person we wanted to capture our special day. Our wedding was a fairy tale. All of our friends and family commented that our wedding was the most fun they had attended – this was brought to life in the amazing photograph’s Vicki took. Vicki did thorough work before our wedding through visiting the church, understanding who the guests were and why they were important to us, and bringing her own enthusiasm and colour to the whole process. I feel that without Vicki’s attention, care and love our wedding memories would never have been so beautiful and moving. I have watched our DVD of pictures 5 times and every time I can’t help crying with happiness. Vicki – thank you so much for everything!” Louise & Andrew
Thank you so much for being more than a photographer and putting up with me!! …You knew how to handle me and put me at ease, you made it so much easier and an enjoyable experience. We haven't selected our prints as yet, but I blame you as there are so many beautiful shots. Mum was over the moon with them. Zoe & Lee Bright (wedding)
You’re a wonderful wedding photographer, we couldn’t have asked for better... Stephanie Ashby (now Mrs Hawkins)
..it was a brilliant day. Everybody we have spoken to really enjoyed themselves. Thank you for doing such a professional job of the photography and also for doing so with such enthusiasm. Everybody we spoke to said you were absolutely brilliant, we are glad that we chose you and feel lucky to have found someone as good as you. Thanks again and we will speak when we get back. Steve & Kate
…you did a fab job at my step-sister’s wedding. The photos are brilliant – I love them. Sally Lambert
These are the most beautiful, stylish, exquisite, joyful, imaginative wedding pictures ever! I was almost there myself. Love the colour scheme. You all looked gorgeous. What a happy, relaxed and engaging bride. It must have been a truly magical day. thanks for sharing them. Friend of bride’s mother on viewing Camilla & Chris’ wedding on line gallery,
You were an absolute star Vicki! Thanks for all you did for us, everyone loved your style and approach. We had an amazing day. Can’t wait to get back and see the photos. Thanks again. Camilla & Chris Hill, by text, the day after their wedding
You are a star! Thank you ever so much for all your hard work. We’ll stop banging on about this soon but thank you so much for adding to our wedding day. Your personal, unobtrusive style was just right and you made a process we both were dreading a great, fun experience. All the guests have commented on how lovely you were. Good luck going forwards, lots of love Cam & Chris Hill, by card,
Yes, we received the wedding album and they are amazing! Thank you so much. Best of luck in the future. We really appreciate how great a job you've done capturing the most important days of our lives and will be eternally thankful. love from us both, Steve and Jess Colvin
Hi Vicky, I hope this finds you well, I have the seen the photos, they are excellent! If I could capture half of the atmosphere that you have in your images I would set myself up. not in competition with you! Take care. Keep in touch. Derek Toward, uncle of bride (and keen amateur photographer)
Testimonials from Portrait Clients
After three wonderful years living in England my daughter and children (11 and 14) are moving back to Vancouver, Canada. To capture this special time my daughter used the occasion of my visit to engage Vicki Sharp to do a photo shoot in Richmond Park, one of the family’s favourite places near their home in Greater London. Vicki involved us with such warmth and enthusiasm that we quickly relaxed into the fun of the moment while she crisply and professionally went about directing and capturing the experience. I wish we could have her here to capture their return to Vancouver. Michael Clague
Just to say I am delighted with the DVD. It has been beautifully put together, the music goes so well with the shots and I am so pleased now to have a permanent record of the children and Rebecca looking so relaxed, loving and happy together. It is very precious to me. It is also most generous of you to refund me money when in fact you have included shots that were not online this time and in fact were not included in the original online sequence either although I did see them, I think, when we visited you and of course I wanted every one of them. I am fully satisfied with both length and content and I know Rebecca will be too.
I must compliment you on your duffer proof set up for ordering photos and I may well be back to you if either Becca or her sister would like mounted portrait shots as presents after they have looked over my Granna's Boasting Book. Many, many thanks Vicki once again. Tessa
I thoroughly enjoyed my photo shoot with Vicki. She has very natural way of getting you relaxed and looking your best and my photos are testament to that. Vicki has managed to encapsulate my personal brand really well and for once I actually like how I look! Not only do I have some great photos, I've also come away with tips that will help me look better in photos from friends and family. Thank you. Lisa Woodward of Icing Consulting
Hello Vicki, many thanks for dropping off the frame and prints yesterday, they are really lovely, it was so good of you to do that. It was very nice to see you again. As I said before thank you very much for everything you did from photo shoot to delivery of orders making the whole experience great. I think I did ask you before, but if I ever require more prints I can just contact you is that the case? Do hope our paths cross again in the meantime have a great summer hope you get chance of a holiday. Many, many thanks again With Best Wishes Elizabeth Peter Jennifer and Laura not forgetting Sammy xx
Many many thanks again for everything you have done to make up this memorable collection of photographs for us, they are really great. Do hope we meet again in the future. Take care ,With Very Best Wishes Elizabeth Pearce
Just got them. Wow. Jonathan Bunney
Lovely! We've had a quick flick through (when we should have been going to bed!). Absolutely fantastic.
Many thanks again. Katherine Theobald
My mom is completely thrilled as are we and my sister wants the same done for her please! Kristen Darlison
I want to spend ages emailing how brilliant you were today but I have to get some sleep! Thank you SOOOO much from the 3 of us Vicki. You made it lots of fun but also so very professional in every way. Can't wait to see the results! Do hope you're pleased with what you captured. Teresa Gallagher – (adult siblings portrait shoot)
I had hoped my mother had emailed you to say how delighted she was with her framed photo, but I fear all the goings on with her moving house may have prevented her! She is thrilled with them, as are we all!! The large framed one went up on the wall immediately and it looks fantastic, as it will in her new home …Michael and I are preparing to make our orders into collages and Lisa has her triple on the wall, looking fab. Again, you did a really splendid job. Teresa Gallagher
Thank you so much for the prints, They are WONDERFUL! Catherine and Simon Ogden
The (framed) prints are here and they are wonderful. They look stunning on the walls and most of our recent visitors have noticed & commented on them already! Thanks for following up... Emma and Stephen Jarvis (portrait shoot)
We are so happy with them (the photos), I cried when I saw them, thank you so much. We are trying to decide which ones we want, everyone loves them! Rachel Solari & daughter Ava age 1yr, by text
Dear Vicki, thanks so much for the photo shoot - it was so relaxing compared to 'normal' shoots in a studio! And wow - they (the photos) are STUNNING! thanks so much - I absolutely love them. How on earth are we going to choose??? I love your double wotsits too - will definitely have some of those. will show Tim and try to narrow them down! Jo Jotishski
I am delighted with the photos! The more I look at them the harder it is to choose. I am so happy with the ones you have captured of the two of us. It is so hard to get one picture that you like of yourself - so to have a collection that I feel proud of is really special - thank you so much. I will need some time to decide how to cut them down to my favourites or what format I want them in as your price list offers a lot to choose from. Will be in touch. Juliet Shadwick
Hi Vicki, finally got to look at the photos again, they are sooooo lovely! Jackie Marie (second shoot in as many months!)

Corporate, Events, Schools, Parties, 10 min 'taster' shoots - what clients have said
Vicki was the perfect photographer to have at the Gumtree Summer Day. She immediately got involved with the theme and atmosphere of the day, organising team photos and making sure everyone was captured in the photos. Her action shots of the rowing activity perfectly capture the high spirits of the day and will invoke fond memories for years to come.
Thank you Vicki for your enthusiasm and commitment to getting the great shots! We will be in touch for our future events. BestWishes Helen Galibardy, Gumtree
Many thanks for yesterday you are great! We all felt very happy working with you and will be looking forward to shooting a few more ( 4 more dresses ) for brides the show catwalk / exhibition ( not made yet). Sheila Harding of Sheila Harding London and Boa Boutique (bridal wear)
