Testimonials From Clients
From Anna & Dave (Pre wedding shoot on Hathersage Moors)
Hi Nick and Anne, thank you for taking time to meet us on Hathersage Moors for a sundown shoot and take some fabulous photos. Everyone we have shown them to have commented how nice they are, Dave and myself agree.
We love the fun shots and also the ones that must have been taken by Anne as they’re not posed for, more natural, I think those are our favourites, they reflect our personality more than sitting and looking at a camera!
Thanks again and really looking forward to seeing the wedding shots!
From Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service
Nick from Footprint Photography has provided training for us on a couple of occasions and both times the attendees have given positive feedback.
Nick is prepared to tailor the course to meet the needs of the individual and he exceeded expectations with the time he gave to the students.
The course was excellent value for money and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services and using Footprint Photography again.
Cathy Bellamy Media Services Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service
From Chelsea – Lingerie / Boudoir shoot
Thank you so much it was a pleasure, brilliant experience and I felt very comfortable during the shoot and it was very welcoming. I’m definitely coming back! Thankyou (-:
From Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue – Photography Training
Nick was extremely generous with his time and his knowledge, and now, from having no previous knowledge, I have a decent understanding of what all the settings on my cameras do, and some ideas on how I might start to use those creatively to produce better photos.
He also displayed stunning photo editing skills and the tips he was kind enough to share were well worth the admission price alone!
I will definitely be taking advantage of the follow up support and I suggest that anyone who wants to improve his or her photography skills should spend some time with Nick.
Thanks again for the day.
Media Services Officer – Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service
From Georgina and Amy – Boudoir / Lingerie shoot
Dear Nick and Anne, I would like to say thank you to the both of you for making our boudoir photo shoot such a fun and memorable occasion.
When my friend and I decided that we would like to do this we were very unsure about the nature of the photographs but after speaking to you on the telephone you soon put our minds at ease.
It was very reassuring that you work together as a team and we knew we would be safe – in today’s world that goes a long way.
Although we had never done anything like this before, we felt very comfortable with you both and our nerves were soon forgotten.
We thoroughly enjoyed the different style of posing for the camera and would recommend any lady to have a boudoir photo shoot, it’s an amazing experience and you won’t recognise yourself once you look at the photos after.
It’s a great keepsake for future years, we have been spoilt for choice on choosing our best photos from the hundreds that were taken, they all look so good.
Thanks again for such a great day,
Georgina and Amy
From Rachel – Boudoir / Lingerie Shoot
Before my Boudoir photo shoot, I was excited but apprehensive (who wouldn’t be?) but on the day, I had an absolute ball. It was great fun and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
Nick and Anne are really relaxing and very quickly put me at ease. I had a good idea of the type of shots I wanted (and a definite idea of those I didn’t want) Nick and Anne listened to my ideas and helped me to achieve them.
Also,with gentle suggestion (but definitely NO pressure), they gave me the encouragement I needed to be just a little braver and have some pictures I wouldn’t, beforehand, have seen myself doing .
I absolutely love the resulting shots It’s so good for the soul to see just how good your good bits really are!
Go for it! You only live once!
From Jayne – Photo Restoration of 70 year old images
Dear Nick, thank you so much. I have just printed the photographs that you have restored and I am delighted with them!!
Mum only passed away a few months ago and this was something that Jill and I intended to do but if I hadn’t seen you at a BNI networking event it would have been one of those things that we would probably never have got round to doing
I really appreciate your help
From “Idea Design & Marketing”
Dear Nick, thank you for responding to the request from Bartons Real Estate to photograph their staff for a new advertising campaign
I have just met with the owner who was very impressed with your professional attitude and service. The fact that you were able to set up the shoot and upload the completed images so quickly has meant that the campaign timescale can be brought forward by a week
This will hopefully result in earlier and better than expected sales
Once again thank you for being so dependable. I have no hesitation in continuing to use Footprint Photography and in recommending your excellent professional photography services
Paul Bentham – Managing Director
From Gareth – trainee photographer
I attended a training session with Footprint photography which I thoroughly enjoyed and luckily for me the directors of Footprint, Nick & Anne, picked up on my hunger to learn and kindly accepted me to join them at one of their upcoming weddings to gain further experience.
I am a good photographer but once I had experienced the Wedding day shoot with Anne & Nick I realised just how far I still needed to go.
I got very useful constructive criticism from them about my work but overall they were pleased with what I already knew. I believe that with their guidance and leadership I will get better & better…I can only aspire to be as good as them and obtain such beautiful memories for future clients!
From observing Nick & Anne in action I get more & more enthusiastic as I can see (and feel) how passionate they both are at what they do.
The only thing you have to look back on that special day is photographs…why spend thousands on a wedding if you can’t look back on it with beautiful pictures to appreciate how much your day cost?
From Kelly – Digital SLR Camera Training
I went to Nick and Anne’s photography workshop and came away feeling so much more confident with my camera. They made me feel very welcome and no question was overlooked or unanswered. It was amazing how much I leaned in just one day
One of the things I have been most grateful for is their continued guidance even after the workshop. Through many emails and telephone calls they have gone out of their way to give me the advice and tips I’ve needed
I would definitely recommend their services to anyone with a camera who wants to know more. Their knowledge and experience is so impressive they have really inspired me to take my photography further
From Neil and Emma – Sheffield Wedding & Whirlowbrook Park Reception
Nick and Anne were amazing in every way possible. From our first meeting with them we knew they were the people we wanted to photograph our special day. Having a pre-shoot at the venue was great to see how things worked and where to have the photos on the day including a back up in case the rain came.
Getting to keep the photos from the pre-wedding shoot was brilliant as they made some great casual photos for the house.
Being able to have Anne at the bride’s house and Nick at the groom’s house meant everything was captured from the very beginning. Plus having Nick at the groom’s meant he gave much needed help with the cravats!
You cannot find two nicer and professional people to capture your special day!
Neil & Emma Davison
From the Mother of the Bride – Ecclesall Church Wedding
Dear Nick and Anne
Many, many thanks for the fantastic wedding photos.
They bring back such happy memories of a thoroughly special day in our family history.
It was such an added bonus to have 2 people for the price of one, Anne was so comfortable with us at the house and I know you, Nick, had a great time with the fellas down at the church and in the local pub.
All in all we feel we have a great recording of the day in pictures.
From Craig and Emma – wedding at Ecclesall Church and reception at the Holiday Inn Sheffield
“Thank you so much for everything you have done for us, the photos are amazing and that is only half the story, your professional attitudes toward the day and friendliness was exemplary.
We started out hiring photographers and finished with friends. You guys were amazing and the photographs are incredible. Thank you so so much.”
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Craig & Emma
From Phil – Digital SLR Camera Training Workshop
Hi Nick & Anne.
Just a line to let you know how much I enjoyed yesterdays course. I am positive that I learned more during the day than all my trial and error efforts over the last 30 years or so.
I now have no fear of setting my camera to Manual with some knowledge on how to capture better images.
Once again thanks for the day, it was certainly worth every penny and hope to see you both again sometime.
From Jenna and Jason – wedding client
Hi Nick and Anne, thankyou both very much for our amazing wedding pictures. We would recommend you to anyone!
Jen and Jay x
From Steph – wedding client
“Hi Nick, I will definitely be recommending yourself and Anne for wedding photography. You were so calm and professional and the end results are stunning. Everyone who’s seen them says how relaxed and smiley everyone is, which is testament to your personalities – and your capabilities.”
From Heather & Darren – wedding clients
Dear Anne and Nick, thank you so much for all your help and advice through the planning of our wedding and the day itself. We had so much fun and it was nice to have people there who knew what they were doing to guide us to the right place. We hardly knew you were there during the service, unlike a wedding we went to at the weekend where the click of the camera was picked up by mics around the room! lovely background noise for a service! The photos we have looked at on the internet are so relaxed and natural, we are very pleased.
The hi res photos on disk [in their presentation box] have arrived, although we haven’t had time to look at them yet!
Thanks again and we will recommend you to our 2 sets of friends that got engaged in the last week!
Darren & Heather
From Rachel & Chris – wedding clients
Just got home to our wedding photos on DVD in the beautiful box, and the order of service, sat in tears looking at them all, it’s so perfect thank you so so much, you have done us so proud!
Hope this finds you both well? Please let’s stay in touch, we see you both as very good friends who photographed our wedding not the wedding photographers.
Hopefully see you very soon.
Love Rachel and Chris xx
From Tano & Jo (on return from holiday – after a DSLR course)
Dear Nick & Anne, I just had to comment on the impact your digital camera workshop had on us recently. We have just returned from our holiday to Spain where, for the first time we have come back with over 700 photos. Both of us agreed that the quality of our photography has increased beyond our expectations. More importantly the pure fun of spending time working on getting the “perfect” shot has again been beyond our expectations, particularly on wildlife and landscape themes
Your workshop was everything we needed to understand not just the workings, not just the art but also the passion to be caught up in a new found interest, given your knowledge, expertise and communication capacity
We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone we come across that wants as much fun as we have had
From Steph & Phil – Aston Hall Hotel Wedding
Hi Nick. Just a quick hello to say Phil and I LOVE our wedding photos. Thank you to you and Anne, from the bottom of our hearts. Choosing which ones to put in an album is going to be an impossible task. x
Steph and Phil
From Phil & Susi – West Retford Hotel Wedding Photography
Dear Anne and Nick, thank you so much for helping us have such a special wedding day!
When we began looking for a photographer we wanted people who we felt comfortable with and who put our wishes before their own. This sounds very basic but it’s amazing how rarely we found this when we were looking for suppliers.
We met you at many wedding fairs and each time Susi and I were impressed by your willingness to talk without pressuring us and your lack of gimmicks – just the promise of photos done how we wanted them and done well
Susi was taken by Anne’s calmness from the start and was pleased by how Anne put her at ease all day. It was so important to us that we had photographers who would be a part of our day rather than dominate it we are really pleased we found this with you
I’m someone who’s never liked having their photograph taken and I was a very nervous groom at the thought of a camera pointing at me all day. But thanks to Nick I relaxed very quickly and enjoyed the whole thing!
The biggest thing I can say to both of you is that not once did I feel uncomfortable having my picture taken. In fact, amazingly, I got quite into it by the end!!
We are both delighted with the final result. It’s so clear from our photo’s that everyone was relaxed and often unaware you were there!
The photos really captured every part of our day and are something we will treasure for many many years.
Thank you again so much and we wish you well in all you do
Love Phil and Susi xxxx
From Vikki Mortimer – Wedding Photography
Hi Nick it was a pleasure to have you and Anne share our day we couldn’t imagine having anyone else doing our photos we have both said we are so glad we had you both there you were fantastic photographers and also such fantastic people x X X X X”
Bluebell Wood Hospice Family Photography
Dear Nick and Anne, working within such an emotive environment is unique and demanding. It is also a place where one is often inspired by the children, their families and many generous volunteers. If it wasn’t for the kindness shown by the volunteers the families would have a much more difficult time than they are already experiencing.
Footprint Photography is such a invaluable asset and I feel it only right that this is supported with this testimonial
In their own time and often at short notice Nick and Anne come to the hospice to take family photographs that are “priceless” to all the family. They have photographed children at the end of their lives having special treats such as helicopter rides and being visited by celebrities but most importantly they were memories for the family
As a couple Anne and Nick are warmly welcomed and appear to be an extension of the hospice family. Their sensitivity and caring approach makes them a special part of the team
On behalf of the children and their families thank you Nick and Anne for capturing precious memories for the living to treasure
Family Portrait Photography Shoot
Dear Nick and Anne, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the fantastic job you did with our family portrait.
This year we wanted a set of photographs as a present for my mother as she had suggested that a family portrait with children and grandchildren would be her perfect birthday present. Thanks to you she was delighted and so pleased with the results
We came to your place on a Sunday morning, which you kindly arranged to fit in with our work and family commitments. It was such a relaxed atmosphere and in such beautiful surroundings too
We all had a wonderful time and it seemed so easy considering how many of us there were, including 3 young children and a dog!
We have enjoyed previewing the great photos on your website and cant wait to see the finished prints. Pictures I am sure we will treasure for many years
We certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to others
With our thanks and best wishes
Richard Harrington and family
Wedding Photography for Nikki and Mark
We are so glad that we chose Footprint Photography for our wedding day as Anne and Nick are so good at their job. They caught every magical moment of our wedding and captured both the love and the fun of our day. They photographed things we hadn’t even thought of like ducks swimming on the lawn of the hotel as our wedding day was very wet!
Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made us both feel very relaxed with them taking photographs of us. They are very friendly and happy people to be around – just what you need for your wedding day! If I had to do it all again I would choose Nick and Anne from Footprint Photography without question
The photos are amazing and really captured our special day
Thank you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding day
Nikki and Mark
Event Photography of Junior Football Match
Dear Nick, just a few words to say thanks to you and Anne for coming and taking photos of my son’s football team. The first time you came it was really foggy so you very kindly arranged to come back the following week at no cost. You took nearly 200 photos of the football match which the parents could choose from
We were so pleased with the results
Digital SLR 1 to 1 Training Session – Sophia Penn Critten (www.thevernonsisters.com)
I wanted to write to say a big thank you for my half day photography instruction from you on 19th June. It was absolutely brilliant and gave me a wonderful overview on how to use my camera effectively.
I now understand how to take much better photos in low lighting which is specifically what I needed to learn in order to take photos at gigs.
You are a very good teacher, explaining things in a comprehensive and fun way and being very patient!
I’d also like to thank you for coming to photograph the house with a view to putting it on the market for sale.
The quality of the photos of the house should make a big difference with the sale. Through your photography, you presented the house at its very best and should certainly entice people to make a visit. Many thanks for your efforts!
Thanks again Nick and hopefully see you soon,
Digital SLR Camera Training Session
Dear Nick and Anne, The course was brilliant and the focus and level perfect. It has made me feel much more confident in knowing what I want to do.
Now I have to search for some brilliant subjects, it has given me more encouragement and confidence to be creative and experiment more with the settings.
I have downloaded the photos taken today and so impressed with how much sharper and balanced my pictures are, even though we were just playing around. Where’s summer? I want to get out there!
I am also keen to experiment with RAW images too, specifically for cropping and not losing the quality. I am so glad you explained that because I have always been told using RAW was only really for photos which are to be published.
Thank you so much, you made learning fun.

Posted on the UK Bride Website by Louise & Paul
Hi, my fiance and I have been for our photoshoot with Footprint Photography and would like to say thank you.
Both Nick and Anne were very welcoming towards us and nothing was too much trouble.
We had a fantastic shoot and would definitely recommend them to others for any kind of photography.
We will be using them for our wedding if they are available when we finally set a date!

We would like to thank the both of you for taking our wedding photos. They are absolutely amazing.
Our family and friends have commented how beautiful the wedding shots are. From start to finish you were both great professionals and everyone was at ease having you there.
We couldn’t have wished for a better team of photographers.
We will definitely be using you again next time we want photos doing
Thank you so much again.

Dear Anne and Nick
We received our wedding photographs on disk a few days ago and want to say an enormous thank you to you both, they’re absolutely lovely – what an enormous difference putting them into high definition makes!
We want to take this opportunity to say a very warm and heartfelt thank you for making two very camera shy people feel very much at ease on their special day.
All the very best to both of you.

Commercial Photography for School Prospectus
Dear Nick, I needed to capture the warm, safe and happy learning environment of Bramley Grange Primary School in a way that could be projected digitally and in print
Your natural talent to see a shot meant the the few hours that we spent on site created many hundreds of top quality images reflecting life inside the school
The Head Teacher was thrilled with a PowerPoint presentation we set to music using all your images. I hope you like it too
I look forward to working with you on many future projects
Managing Director, I-dea Design & Marketing
Digital SLR Camera Training Session
Thank you for the training day that you gave me on the 6th of June.
I gained so much knowledge from the day I am now more confident in the use of the camera settings and have already started to produce better pictures.
I have already started recommending your service to my friends and colleagues.
Please see attached photo that I took at home on the evening of the 6th June using some of the recommendations that you suggested, I am quite pleased with it !!
Once again thank you and I wish you all the best, I will be booking you again in the future to see if you can help me with Lightroom which I have purchased on your recommendation.
All the best.
Rachel and Chris’s Wedding Photography
Hi Nick and Anne, we would just like to say a massive thank you to you both. We knew the photographs for our wedding would be good, but the pictures you have taken have blown us away.
They are over and above what we were expecting, they are so beautiful. You have managed to perfectly capture every bit of the day with natural photos we will treasure for ever.
You were both a pleasure to have at our wedding and helped make the day perfect, we can never thank you enough.
Lots of love to you both

Digital SLR Camera Training Session
Hi Nick, thanks for the 1 to 1 session we had recently, it was really very good and I learned loads of things in a very good way. Your method of teaching is spot on and it really helped me.
Thanks also for the hospitality, I was made to feel very comfortable and nothing was too much trouble
Commercial Photography Recommendation – Concura Catering Equipment
We recently commissioned Nick and Anne from Footprint Photography to document refurbishment words that we were carrying out at Silversmiths Restaurant in Sheffield (www.silversmiths-restaurant.com).
The refurbishment work required by our client was to completely take out their old kitchen and replace with brand new units to their specification.
All the way through the project Nick and Anne made themselves available to capture the work as it progressed and arranged their days around our schedule to ensure this happened.
The final results are a delight and will be used in a marketing campaign we will be running in conjunction with our client
We have no hesitation in recommending Footprint Photography if you are looking for excellent Commercial photography

Family Portrait Photography
Many thanks for an outstanding family photoshoot – not only are we thrilled with the pictures taken but we also had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon! We were made extremely welcome in your lovely home which provided the perfect balance of professional studio and warm, comfortable environment.
You also adapted easily to capturing the poses of our 13 month old – a moving and exceptionally unpredictable target at the best of times! Your informal and relaxed style perfectly suited our needs and it was easy to forget that the camera was there as we played, fed our son and changed outfits without feeling under any pressure at all.
We are delighted by the shots taken and impressed by the speed at which they were ready for us to view – we were able to look at the photos and select our favourites at leisure in our own home that same evening.
We have been left with pictures and memories that we will treasure for a lifetime and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to others.
Many thanks and best wishes,
Tano, Jenny and Junior.
Commercial Photography Testimonial from Samantha Rathling (International Speaker)
“As an international speaker, I come across a lot of Photographers at events and conferences around the world. Nick has photographed me twice now and I have always been impressed with his friendliness and high attention to detail in to his work. I have never been distracted on stage by his photography which is very important to any speaker and the shots I now use to promote my business.
Thanks Nick, you are brilliant!”
Personal message from Lynne Barnett
Dear Nick and Anne, as my departure from Bluebell Wood draws nearer, I want to say a big personal thank you for all the help and support you have given me during my time here.
I have really enjoyed working with you and have many happy memories of the activities we have shared. Your kindness and the work you have done for us has been greatly appreciated
With very best wishes for the future

Wedding Photography Training Workshop
I recently shadowed Nick and Anne Sievewright of Footprint Photography at a wedding they were shooting in Harrogate. They both made me feel very welcome and were extremely easy to get along with.
Not once did I feel in the way, especially as wedding shoots can sometimes be very stressful situations. I was clearly briefed on what my role would be which made it a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
One of the best things about my Footprint shadowing experience was that I picked up many tips and tricks of the wedding photography trade as both Nick and Anne are very forthcoming about sharing the skills that they have learned over the years.
Where some professionals close their doors with regards to sharing their skills and experience, I found Nick and Anne at Footprint Photography to be open, encouraging and a delight to deal with.
Following the shadowing experience, Nick invited me for a second tutorial in post production using ‘Adobe Lightroom 3′ which is one of the best tools in post production photography. Nick is a patient, thorough and excellent teacher and I came away from the experience much richer in knowledge and motivated to utilise the new skills I had learned.
I would encourage anyone who is interested in honing their skills in photography or post production to contact Footprint and I very much hope to work with them again in the future.

Commercial Photography for an International Motivational Speaker
Dear Nick & Anne,
I am a motivational speaker and I recently asked you to photograph my workshop held at the Aston Hotel in Sheffield. My brief was that I wanted to use the photographs for marketing purposes on my website and Facebook. When I spoke to you about my requirements you were more than happy to help.
You were very friendly and professional and have provided me with a large selection of high-quality photos. You are passionate and expert in what you do and this is reflected in the photos. You captured just what I was looking for.
I would recommend you to anyone and will continue to use your services for my products and social media.
I wish you a lot of success, happiness and fun!

Digital SLR Camera Training Session 1:1 with Dorothy Arthur
I really enjoyed my photography lesson yesterday. It was superb! Particularly because it was a 1:1 session and we could focus on all my questions.
You were very patient and took the time to explain and clarify things, which for an experienced photographer may be quite simple, but for me as a beginner quite large obstacles.
I found Photoshop amazing….the things you can do to recover or improve a photo; the importance of histograms; how to straighten buildings, etc.
I’m also greatly inspired by your artistic use of depth of field. I had only seen DOF as a necessary technique to ‘blot out’ unwanted objects rather than to encourage people to see what you want them to focus on.
Thank you for your offer of advice when I can afford to buy a new camera.
with kind regards,
Property Photography for Estate Agent “IS Property”
We recently asked Footprint Photography to photograph two properties we were preparing for market. Nick from Footprint agreed to go the same day as we were up against another estate agent who the vendor was considering signing up with. It was important for us to show that we could work quickly and provide a good service
Footprint Photography helped secure the sales instruction by doing an excellent job for us and using professional cameras whereas the previous estate agent had gone around the property and only used the camera on his mobile phone which didn’t impress the vendor at all.
The property is fairly substantial and there were various features we wanted to be highlighted in the photographs. Nick provided us with 63 photos which is far more than we normally get from other photographers. This selection allowed us to choose several for immediate use with many other photos which we could use to update our website in due course.
When dealing with vendors and using 3rd party businesses such as Footprint Photography any issues reflect directly on our business. With Nick the vendor was full of praise which also reflected very well for us
I will definitely be using Footprint Photography in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a fast and professional service

Family Portrait Photography : Bump & Baby shoot
Dear Nick and Anne, I am writing to thank you for the excellent service once again at Footprint Photography. You photographed the “bump” and now that Lyla is here we wanted photographs to capture her as she grows. As a busy mum bringing up two children and also helping to run a company you fitted us in at a convenient time and made us all feel at ease.
You took a lot of photos during Lyla’s shoot and captured just what I was looking for with the very first one! But they are all so lovely it has been hard for us and family to decide which ones to pick! You even took some impromptu ones when our son Harry dived into shot which have also turned out beautifully and captured his “big brotherness” perfectly.
Thank you once again, we are continuing to recommend you to family, friends and anyone we meet who wants any sort of photography as we know you certainly know how to put a smile on everyone’s faces, even dribbly babies and sticky toddlers
Corporate Website Photography Testimonial from Ant Clifford – Director, Creative Stream (www.creativestream.co.uk) Web Design Company
It was a pleasure to design the website for Tyler Brothers (www.tybro.co.uk) using the images supplied by Footprint Photography. They provided us with beautiful, high-quality photos which perfectly represented the services and products that Tyler Brothers offer. Using great images makes the designer’s job a lot easier!
From Sarah and James – Majestic Hotel Harrogate Wedding Photography
Dear Anne and Nick, we just wanted to get in touch to say we have looked through all the photos and we don’t think any need anything changing, we love them all! Could you send us the high res images please?
Thanks again for everything you did for us on the day, it seems so long ago now, but you were brilliant in helping us organise what we wanted in the build up and on the day itself, and the photos are amazing, exactly what we wanted, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Sarah & James
From Nigel Palin – Demolition Corporate Photography
Having met Nick and Anne from Footprint Photography and discussed the project we wanted them to photograph we were confident that they could deliver the results we required
The brief was to photograph a 6 storey building being demolished with explosives but to use high speed photography to capture the building in various stages of collapse
On the day of the demolition it snowed heavily and Nick and Anne were stuck on the side of the road for over an hour but kept in contact with us and still made it to site on time
When they got to site they only had a few minutes to be briefed and to get into position before the building came down but the images they captured for us were excellent and exactly what we wanted
They did an awesome job in difficult conditions – I wouldn’t hesitate to utilise their services for other projects where we need a photographic record
From Dean Elmore – Dean Elmore Building Services (family photography)
Dear Nick, I recently came to your studio for a family shoot along with my two daughters, son and future son in law.
Right from the start you made us all feel at ease in front of the camera and made us all smile. You also made my son Alfie pay attention which is no mean feat!
You captured the moment of us having fun and were full of ideas of what group and individual shots would look good. You and Anne both make a great team
The end results were everything and more than we expected and the prints will make excellent Christmas presents
I have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody who is looking for super hero with a camera – You are Captain Camera!
From Emma Digby – Senior Partner and Principal CLL Solicitors
Having just set up my own law practice life has been a little hectic over the last couple of months. However, when I spoke to you about my requirements for some photos for promotional material you were more than happy to help. You made arrangements for me to visit your studio at a time convenient to me and you put me at ease. I absolutely hate having my photo taken but you made it good fun and I almost enjoyed the experience!
You provided me with a large selection of images so that I could use my favourites and you dealt with me in a prompt, professional yet very personable manner throughout.
I have been so impressed with Footprint that I have passed your details to my brother who is getting married next year. Trust me this is a real testament to how much I trust you and Anne to deliver the service and quality photographs you promise.
Hope to see you at the wedding but no laughing at the bridesmaid dress!!

Dear Nick and Anne, Yet again, a big thank you to you both for your photography skills on the two Wyre Lady river trips with the Bluebell Support Groups.
Despite the cold, I know all those who came really enjoyed the evenings and your photos will serve as treasured reminders. We hope you managed to enjoy the evenings too
Your continued and very generous support throughout the year has been and is really appreciated by us all. Many, many thanks once again

Jenny and Dan’s wedding photography in the Lake District
Hi Nick and Anne
The photos look fabulous, I don’t think we need anything further doing to them so if you could burn the hi-res disk we would be more than delighted
Thank you again for the wonderful memories you have given us.

Family Portrait Studio Shoot
I had a fantastic photo shoot at Footprint Photography last month. I explained to Nick and Anne that I wanted some informal shots of my children and they suggested that I bring along changes of clothing and fancy dress so that the children could dress up as their favourite characters.
The whole shoot was fun and relaxed. Despite two hyperactive children causing mayhem Nick and Anne were patient throughout and achieved excellent pictures which are now the envy of many of my mummy friends
I have no hesitation in recommending Footprint Photography to my friends and family and I would certainly consider having further photography done by Footprint Photography in the future as my family grows

Camera Training and Photoshop Tutorial Sessions
As part of a photography training session I recently joined join Nick and Anne Sievewright of Footprint Photography at a wedding shoot in Harrogate. They both made me feel very welcome and were extremely helpful from the moment I arrived. I was fully briefed on what to do and was encouraged to shoot photos in a relaxed documentary style which made it an enjoyable and educational experience.
One of the best things about my Footprint shadowing experience was that I learnt many tips and tricks of the wedding photography trade as both Nick and Anne are very experienced and forthcoming about sharing the skills that they have learnt over the years.
Where some professionals close their doors with regards to sharing their skills and experience, I found Nick and Anne from Footprint Photography to be open, encouraging and a delight to share the day with.
Following the shadowing experience, Nick invited me to their studio some days later for a tutorial in ‘Adobe Lightroom 3′ which is one of the best tools in post production photography.
Nick is a patient, thorough and excellent teacher and I came away from the experience much richer in knowledge and motivated to utilise the new skills I had learnt.
I would encourage anyone who is interested in honing their skills in photography or post processing in either Photoshop or Lightroom to contact Footprint Photography and I very much hope to work with them again in the future.

From Caroline and James – wedding photography at Makeney Hall
Dear Nick and Anne, thank you for the amazing job you have done and for being so lovely on the day. We will definitely be recommending you to others.
You were so friendly and professional and really helped us to relax!!

From Nicola and Paul – Wedding Photography
Nick and Anne were great, they did everything we asked and gave us ideas that we wouldn’t have thought of for really different wedding photographs. We have really great picture memories from our wedding day!
Commercial Testimonial from CS Electrical (Sheffield) Limited
Dear Nick, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the photography services you recently provided to my company. The brief was to capture me working from a mobile elevated platform on an all weather sports pitch.
You arrived on time and jumped straight into action. Even though the weather conditions weren’t optimal you still managed to take some really good quality pictures of me high above ground.
Footprint Photography is now the official CS Electrical photographer and I would not hesitate in recommending your photography skills to anyone who may require them
Once again many thanks
M Sayers – Director
From Laura – a bridesmaid at Diana & Rob’s wedding photography
Hi Anne & Nick, I’ve just caught up with Diana and Rob back from their honeymoon and seen the photographs you both took at their wedding. I have to say I am particularly impressed at the wonderful photos that Anne was able to capture on the morning of the wedding; I genuinely thought we would end up with no photos given how late we were all running!
They’re all beautiful shots; thank you very much for making the day so easy. It really would not have been the wonderful day it was without you both; thank you so much for your patience and calming influence
Every one of the guests has commented how great they thought you were, we really could not have asked for more.
One more bit of good news; Adam and I have been engaged since March and after the wedding he finally decided to set a date. He was so impressed with how easy you both made the day it got him in the mood.
Expect to be busy; there are about 200 people out there all raving about you
Hopefully you’re not booked for my wedding day yet but if so, who do I have to have assassinated?
On behalf of all of the family thank you so much once again!
A further testimonial from Becky & Chris
Dear Nick & Anne
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and to say how pleased we were with the photos you took at our wedding in August.
Every time we visited you before our wedding you made me and my family feel so welcome, going the extra mile to entertain our children and make our time an enjoyable experience.
Our wedding was amazing and we both feel that you did everything we wanted you to and more. It wasn’t like having two photographers with us it was like you were part of our friends and family. it was great to have both of you there. Anne was able to take pictures of me and my bridesmaids getting ready and Chris was thankful to have Nick around to guide him as well as take photos
The following morning all our family and friends commented on our photographers saying how lovely they were.
Based on our experience with Nick and Anne I would have no hesitation recommending Footprint Photography to anyone in the future
A thank you card from Amanda & Simon
To Nick and Anne, we would like to thank you both for making our wedding day special. You were brilliant and the photos are fantastic.
We will not hesitate to use you in the future and will definitely recommending you to friends and family
Love Simon and Amanda
From Becky & Chris – Wedding photography in the Lake District
Hi Nick & Anne,
We are now back from our hols and have been going through the pics.
They are amazing, its so strange looking at them because there are pictures of things that we never even noticed on the day!
You have both done a great job and we are really pleased!
Thanks Becky : )
From Clare & Jamie – Wedding photography in Hertfordshire
Dear Nick & Anne,
Sorry for the delay in sending this e-mail to you. We received the canvas on Wednesday afternoon and love it.
A huge thank you for everything you done and the great wedding pictures we now have to look back on.
Should we know any more people who need a couple of great photographers we’ll be sure to send them your way.
Clare & Jamie Pearson
From Lynne & Barry (mum and dad from a recent wedding in the Lake District)
What a fabulous couple you are . . .Thank you so much for your time and patience whilst taking our son’s wedding photos.
You were both smiling throughout, even when I got in your way!
Professional, inspiring and pleasant – Thank you
Lynne & Barry (Chris’s mum and dad)
From Jo Stokes Denson at the “A Fitting Company”- Pregnancy photography session
Dear Nick and Anne, At the A Fitting Company we take care to listen to and consider the unique needs of our clients. When I recently wanted to record the beauty of my pregnancy I had specific and unique requirements and needed a photographer who would help me to capture the memory in a personal and stylish way.
I am pleased to say that Anne & Nick both listened carefully to my specific requests. They were professional yet relaxed from the outset and the result is a set of photographs I am incredibly happy with, capturing exactly what I had in mind. These will form part of my treasured memories of the beginning of my family.
I will continue to highly recommend Footprint Photography to any family, friends or colleagues who would like photographs that are personal and which will record special life events.
Nick & Anne from Footprint Photography certainly know how to put a smile on your face
With sincerest thanks
Jo Stokes Denson (A Fitting Company)

From Faye & James – The Parsonage wedding photography
Dear Anne & Nick, we would like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work and effort that you put into capturing our wedding day.
We knew from the moment you both took our pre-wedding photos that we had chosen the right photographers for our special day. You made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera.
Many of our guests commented on how professional yet friendly you both were and you worked so well with everyone there.
You did your utmost to get all the photos we wanted and also welcomed our ideas.
Your photographs are truly amazing and capture the day perfectly. The difficulty comes now choosing our favourites from all 910 pictures.
Your service has been 1st class and we would highly recommend you.
We’re looking forward to seeing a photobook put together in the future.
Faye & James Rocks
From Sarah & Paul – Granborough
Hi Anne and Nick, what can I say, the photos are amazing. You have done a lovely job and there isn’t one photo we don’t like (note from Footprint – Sarah & Paul got 975 photos from their wedding). Even I look relaxed and I’m smiling which we all know is rare for me!!
I don’t think words could ever comprehend how grateful we are for the amazing job you both did for us. You captured our perfect day with beautiful well timed photos and we could never thank you both enough for giving us lasting perfect memories.
They really did exceed my expectations so a massive thank you!!
We’d love an album too so would it be OK to talk about that at a later date?
Thank you so much

From Emma & Dave – Hargate Hall Wedding Photography
I love em, love em, love em!
Probably shouldn’t have looked at them without Dave but never mind hehehe, too late now!
I would like a few in black and white but better consult with him first
We absolutely love the pics and to be honest there hasn’t been a single day since we got them that I haven’t wasted at least an hour looking at them again hehehe
Speak soon and thanks again
From Sarah & Paul (the day after their wedding)
Hi Anne and Nick,
Just wanted to drop you an e mail to say a massive thank you for being so great at our wedding. It was lovely having you both taking photos, you were great, even in the rain !!
We can’t thank you both enough for help make our day so perfect and travelling down to be with us it meant a lot to us both and we really enjoyed having you both there.
It was like having friends take our photos rather than photographers which is a great feeling so thank you really looking forward to seeing the final pics!!!
Bluebell Wood Hospice
Footprint Photography are the official photographers for the siblings groups at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. These groups, run monthly, give Bluebell Wood siblings some time on their own to have fun, relax and meet friends in the same situation as them. Nick and Anne capture the group’s experiences with fantastic shots, without ever getting in the way of the group’s activities or disrupting the flow of the groups. They are sensitive to the circumstances of the siblings and a real pleasure to work with, and the images produced are always of the highest quality and really tell the story of what the group has been involved with.
I would recommend their services to anybody looking for a photographer, either on a commercial or personal basis.

Ben & Vicky’s wedding at Rogerthorpe Manor
Hi Nick and Anne
We have looked through the photos and wow!!
I would like to say again thank you we cannot believe you have taken so many top quality photos. We really enjoyed our wedding day and you have made a massive contribution in making that day special.
Thank you for being there to capture it. Throughout the day you were there not just as a photographer but somebody to ask advice from.
Many of our friends and family asked how we knew you and thought you were our friends. We cannot recommend you highly enough, and will definitely use you guys again. Thank you so much.
Ben and Vicky
Photography Training Workshop
As a new DSLR user I had been looking around for a photography course for a while, and as I’m not one for reading the manuals or tutorials, Footprint’s tailored 1-2-1 photography session appealed to me as a perfect solution.
The session was tailored to me, my photography needs and my camera, and I was very impressed with the array of coverage in just a 4 hour session; basic essential tips such as how to hold the camera, effective lens changing, cleaning and care; advanced techniques such as Aperture, Shutter speeds, ISO, Exposure and Depth of Field; practical photography with my camera and also the chance to use Footprint’s equipment; and finally a quick overview of Photoshop.
In summary I attended the course knowing very little about photography and how to use my camera, and I left feeling very confident and extremely eager to get out and use my camera (and purchase some new lenses)!
For me it definitely released me from the green auto setting, and I would highly recommend Footprint’s training to anyone who is new to photography, and I look forward to arranging another session with Nick and Anne once I’ve put my new skills into practise. – Best Wishes Adam
Paul & Cheryl’s wedding at Whitley Hall – (Canadian Couple)
Hi Nick and Anne, we are back in Canada now which is much warmer than when we left! The pictures are amazing and we love them, thank you. Please could you send our disk with the hi-res photos to us in Canada
It was fantastic meeting your both and a pleasure to deal with you
Paul and Cheryl
Ben & Vicky’s wedding (message from them the day after their wedding)
Hi Nick and Anne, we got your text this morning and thank you so much.
I wanted to say a massive thank you to you both. Everyone who came to the wedding commented on how nice and friendly you were, some people even thought you were members of the family !!
I would recommend you guys to anyone purely based on the service we received and we haven’t even seen the photos yet
We have been lucky to find you guys and once again thank you
I’m sure we’ll be in touch when we return from our two weeks in paradise – we may even show you some of our photos!!!
Thank you again, see you soon

Ecclesall Toddler Group
Down at the toddler group a problem appeared
No photos were taken for over 2 years
The mothers were asking and looking downcast
We need someone quick, we need someone fast
Just look at our children they’re growing with pace
There’s no-one to capture the smile on their face
So without hesitation, I picked up the phone
To Footprint Photography, in Sheffield well known
“Please Nick & Anne can you come, short notice I know”
They agreed, but were thwarted with shed loads of snow
Undeterred for the New Year, no snow on the ground
They were soon taking pictures, with chaos around
For 3 days they laboured, to the task they arose
“Just sit still and smile and don’t pick your nose”
The results were amazing, a grand gallery
Worth every penny, to print and to see
The team here at toddlers, are grateful to you
For mothers are happy and grandparents too
Not so for the children, they don’t care a jot
They’d much rather run and be covered with snot!!
Just to say thank you
Love Jo Hird

Photography for Nottingham Powerchair Football Club
Dear Nick & Anne
We have been trying to capture the essence of how Powerchair Football is used by disabled people in pictures for some time. You were asked and immediately said yes.
You attended a recent training session where players had travelled up to an hour and a half just to train for what is the only sport that some of them participate in. We were able to run a near normal session with you both taking action and still shots.
The results were amazing and are going to be used not only on our own website and posters but also for the Wheelchair Football Association which will be seen worldwide.
Everyone enjoyed your relaxed and professional attitude and were totally happy with the finished results.
Once again, many thanks for your professional and friendly service
Photography Training Workshop
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your guidance in photography skills a couple of weeks ago.
I have owned my digital SLR camera for over a year now and even though I have read through the manual it seemed as though it was written in Mandarin and I was getting nowhere fast.
I took to using my camera on automatic modes which was a waste considering what the camera was capable of.
I then heard you mention in the Soaraways BNI meeting that you would be providing tuition and guidance on the intricacies of cameras and photography to us mere mortals and thought this would be of some use to me.
You didn’t fail to impress, explaining everything in laymen’s terms so even I could take it in.
You took me through a few steps and tips which gave me a clearer understanding of how my camera works.
I would not hesitate in recommending your tutoring skills in photography to anyone who may require them.
Once again many thanks.
Kelly & Craig’s Wedding
Nick and Anne have been amazing! We have the most amazing photos of our special day! They were both very helpful and supportive on the day and joined in with our celebrations which was fantastic. Our friends and family were all put at ease and we have wonderful photos that we will cherish forever.
We can’t recommend them both enough!!
Love Kelly & Craig X
Kelly & Paul Pre Wedding Shoot
Hi Nick and Anne, the photos (from the pre wedding shoot) have arrived, they are fantastic. I’ve just been out to get them framed today, they look amazing!!
Thanks so much again!!
Photography Training Session
Hi Nick & Anne, I really want to thank you both for time taken to teach me how to use my digital SLR. I was stumped on anything except the automatic settings and very frustrated when things didn’t come out as I wanted them to but your easy way and lots of patience has really paid off.
By the end of my session with you both I had a good understanding of the different modes and can now confidently choose Aperture or Shutter priority to match the situation and you even got me to experiment with Manual and showed me how to make the best use of on camera and off camera flash too. The confidence I have now to take my photography further knows no bounds.
Thank you both so much, you have released my poor camera from the P mode!
Sarah & Andrew – Honeymoon in Sri Lanka
We met Nick & Anne by chance at sunset on a beach in Sri Lanka. Andrew and I were on our honeymoon and Nick & Anne had been flown out to photograph a wedding. They took some fantastic sunset shots of us and were kind enough to send us the images. Nick & Anne are a lovely friendly couple and we can’t thank them enough for our honeymoon memento. The photos are now proudly displayed on our wall and impress all of our guests!
Jackie & Dave’s Wedding – Whitley Hall
Hi Nick and Anne, we would like to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so special and for making us feel that nothing was too much trouble.
From the moment we met you both we knew we wanted you to capture our memories from the day.
The pre-wedding shoot was a wonderful way of us being at ease around the camera and we got a great selection of photos to add to the collection which we will treasure along with our wedding ones.
By the time the wedding arrived we felt totally at ease with the camera and yourselves. It felt more like our friends were capturing our day
The only good thing about arriving back from our honeymoon was to come and look at the photographs and we love them all !!
We look forward to seeing you both in the New Year to try to pick through the nearly 800 photos to choose the ones for our wedding album

Commercial shoot at Tyler Brothers Engineering Company for Creative Stream
Dear Nick and Anne, I am writing to thank you for the photography you recently provided for the new website for our client Tyler Brothers Engineering (www.tybro.co.uk) due to go live early in 2011. The quality of images used can really make or break the visual appeal of a website so we were really pleased when we saw the results you have managed to achieve. The shots you had taken were dynamic, creative and of a very high standard which is no small achievement considering it was a roaming shoot in an engineering works. I would have no hesitation in recommending your commercial photography services to any business wanting to add visual impact to their marketing materials whether printed or online.

Hi Nick and Anne, the photos are amazing!
Thank you for taking our wedding photos and being part of our big day. You were both great and made everyone feel so relaxed when taking the photos
The results were really amazing – thank you!
Commercial shoot at Tyler Bros (www.tybro.co.uk) Engineering works for Creative Stream (www.creativestream.co.uk)
Hi Nick and Anne, the photos look really really good! Fantastic work. It’s great that you have given me options of lighting, aspect and style for particular shots. There is a superb selection of images.
I’ll get back to you with a list asap. It’ll take a little while though and I think it’ll be tricky to cut them down but I’ll try!
Thanks very much
Ant Clifford – Creative Director
Nikki & Darren’s Wedding – Ranmoor Church / Whirlowbrook Park
Having two photographers photograph our wedding was a massive plus and it meant both bride and groom had their own personal snapper which led to some excellent photos of us getting ready. The option of the pre-wedding shoot was also a clincher for us and allowed us to get even better pictures on the big day. Thank you again for your professionalism, but still calming, manner.
Darren & Nikki
Jen & Dave’s Wedding – Oulton Hall
Hi Nick and Anne,
We’ve had a through look through the photos and we’re absolutely delighted with them. Sorry its taken so long to get back to you. There aren’t any changes necessary (to the low-res images uploaded to the viewing website), we’re happy with the result you’ve already achieved. If you could sent us the disk with the images on that would be great as we’re eager to plug the laptop into the telly to see them on the big screen!
Thanks so much for all your hard work.

Sue & Andrew’s Wedding – Woburn Abbey Sculpture Gallery
Hi Nick and Anne
We just wanted to say a really big thank you for all the work you did yesterday. Thank you for making us feel so relaxed and helping the day to run so smoothly
Sue & Andrew
Jennifer & Dave’s Wedding at Oulton Hall Yorkshire
We were fairly specific in what we wanted which was a digital copy of all the shots from the day on a disk for us to create our own album in the future. Nick and Anne provided exactly that with a combination of traditional and relaxed shots of our friends and family enjoying the day.
We are thrilled with the results.
Charlotte’s Photo shoot
Hi Nick and Anne, I just wanted to say I thoroughly enjoyed my photo shoot with you last night. It was fantastic and so much fun!
I was nervous but I relaxed so quickly and felt so comfortable with you guys
Thank you for making me and Kirsty so welcome and thank you again for an excellent time
Helena’s Lingerie Shoot
Being someone who is not very confident with her looks I was rather daunted about doing the shoot I had booked. However Nick and Anne made me feel more than welcome. I immediately felt comfortable and really enjoyed my shoot. The photos produced were excellent. There was such a massive range to choose from – this was the hardest bit!
Thanks again, I would recommend you without hesitation
Andy & Georgina’s Wedding at Horwood House Buckinghamshire
Hi Anne and Nick,
We would just like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for the fantastic photos you took at our wedding – you really captured the day perfectly!
Both Georgina and I felt really comfortable having you there (the pre-wedding shoot really helped!) and even the guests commented how you blended in to get the more natural shots – this has definitely been reflected in the results which we will cherish forever.
I would not hesitate to recommend you both as your friendly, “nothing’s too much trouble” attitude helped us to relax on our big day to help get the most out of it.
PS – We are still trying to decide which of the 700+ photos you gave us we like best!!!
Andrew and Georgina
Jenny and Whitney’s Wedding in Aylesbury
“Dear Nick and Anne, we just want to say thank you both so much for all your help on our wedding day. I know this message is a little bit late as we have been away on our honeymoon but we wanted to see the photographs you took so that we could thank you properly.
We don’t know anyone else who could have made the memory of our special day more beautiful or have been so generous with their time as you two”
Thank you so much
Jenny and Whitney
Commercial Shoot for a client in Aylesbury
WOW !!! – loved them !!
We are launching a new company website and knew that the photographs on the site had to show both the professional image we want to convey but were also somehow different enough to really draw the eye.
When we came to see you, you listened to us and to our ideas before taking us into the studio to shoot the photographs. During the shoot you involved us at each step of the way by showing us the photos in camera as you took them and discussing what you wanted to achieve. You made us very relaxed and proved that even corporate photography can be lots of fun. The more we enjoyed ourselves the better the photographs became
We were working to a very tight timescale to get the finished photos to the web developer and you responded wonderfully by showing us proof copies on your website within a couple of hours and then working quickly to provide the finished results
We are delighted with what you have done for the image of our website and our company and we are so pleased with the photos that we have ordered a large 6ft x 3ft blow up of one of your images to be mounted on the wall of our offices
Thank you so much

Jeanette and Chris’s Wedding at Weston Turville Golf Club
“Hi Anne and Nick, Chris and I just had to drop you a line to say how pleased we are with the way you photographed our wedding and with how many treasured memories of our day you captured. Your friendly manner and attention to detail was second to none. Seemingly without effort you have produced photographs of the serious and the fun moments and blended them beautifully for us”
Lots of love
Portrait Shoot at “The Raj” in Wendover
“You guys are amazing, nothing is too much trouble. We knew we wanted a series of portrait photos of the management and some of the staff but weren’t sure how to go about it.
After speaking with you at the restaurant it all fell into place very quickly. Your choice of location and backdrops worked perfectly and even those who were camera shy were quickly put at ease and the forced smiles at the beginning of the shoot were transformed into genuine ones because of the way you put people at ease and showed how much fun could be had.
We will not hesitate to use you again and we are already planning a follow up shoot for the restaurant and family photographs too”
Katie and Steve’s Wedding at Whipsnade Zoo
“Dear Nick and Anne, Thank you so much for doing the photography for our wedding and subsequent reception at Whipsnade Zoo.
It was really advantageous to have you at the rehearsal especially with us not being particularly used to being in the spotlight and in front of the camera.
Katie and I had both been a little apprehensive about having our photos taken so many times and having a photographer with both the bride and groom’s party all day. Your incredible professionalism though made it all very comfortable and your creativity ensured we have so many photos that we will cherish for life.
I would recommend Nick and Anne at Footprint above any other photographic company I have used; they can make a special day perfect.”
Pre Wedding & Family shoot for Annette & Paul
“Hi Anne & Nick
Thank you so much for the family picture shoot you did. They were really good fun and very natural. You managed to capture some really lovely moments between us all. You made us feel really comfortable, and we can’t wait for you to take our photos at our Wedding
Thank you again”
Paul, Annette & Rosie
Annette & Paul Wedding
“Thank you Anne & Nick for our amazing Wedding pics. You made us feel really relaxed during the formal photos, and we were so happy with the pictures that you managed to capture through the ceremony, and before the Wedding. It was difficult at times with the little person running around but you managed to cope with this and take some wonderfully natural shots! You made our Wedding memories even more special
Thank you so much”
Charity Event for Disadvantaged Children
Dear Nick & Anne
Thank you so much for everything that you did for us on Saturday evening. I really do appreciate it and I know it was a really long day for you too!
The photo that I have seen this morning, that I will send to the newspaper, looks brilliant and I can’t wait to see all the others. I will mention your website in the press release so that hopefully lots of other people will buy some photos!
Thank you again for all your help and time
Commercial Shoot for Mike Carroll – Singer & Entertainer
I met Nick & Anne some time ago and having spoken with them and seen their work I booked them to photograph me and to design my latest album cover, business cards and promotional artwork for both my solo work and for my band.
I was so pleased with the results that I have used them several times since for both business and family photography. They go above and beyond without hesitation and are able to work to very tight timescales with great professionalism.
I recommend them highly and will continue to work with them in the future.
Family Shoot for the Clinch Family
Hi Nick & Anne, couldn’t wait until I got back from work to look at the photos. Wow! I’m so pleased with them, you have captured just what we wanted, our 3 kids having fun. Thank you so much
Testimonial from Melissa Dickens (photographer)
I have worked along side Nick and Anne over the last year and can honestly say it’s been a pleasure, hard work but great fun.
From a personal point of view, they have passed on a wealth of knowledge to me through a hands on approach and critique and given me so much more confidence in my own ability.
From a professional point of view, Nick and Anne produce high quality, stunning images that always capture the feeling of the occasion in a relaxed, unobtrusive way and would most certainly recommend them.
I look forward to working with them again in the future.
Sian & Justin’s Wedding
Dear Nick and Anne, We found a brilliant service when we found you guys and would definitely use you in the future. It was your attitude and nature that sold it for us. We felt you went above and beyond our expectations and agreed deal to give us what we wanted.
Nick and Anne have a knack for keeping a smile on your face while getting the job done. They made us, our friends and our family feel at ease in front of the camera, which enabled them to get some priceless pictures that will be treasured. They are very professional and a joy to work with, nothing was too much trouble for them.
We would drive great distance to use Footprint Photography again.
The Wiseman Family Portrait Session
A special thanks to Nick and Anne for the stunning photographs they produced during our family shoot. Our 13 month old daughter was very uncooperative on the day and I anticipated a less than successful outcome. I am pleased to say that I was very far off the mark!
The pictures were miraculous. I am not at all photogenic and yet am now seriously considering giving up plumbing and going into modelling as a career, they made us all look relaxed and natural.
Due to the hours that I work they were more than happy to work around my schedule and do what best suited us as a family. This meant a Sunday morning which I am sure is not the norm amongst photographers of their calibre. I don’t believe this was any special one off for us, but rather what they do for everyone.
They obviously enjoy what they do as is it done with passion and pride.
Pet Shoot for Lottie the Golden Retriever
Thanks for the wonderful photo of our dog Lottie which takes pride of place in our hall. The photoshoot was arranged by my children as a present and Nick and Anne from Footprint Photography made the whole process very enjoyable for Lottie and the children. The choice of photos available (after the shoot) on the internet was amazing and it took me hours to make my final choice
Nick and Anne truly captured Lottie’s “look” and I thank them for all their professionalism for making this surprise present a great one
13th Birthday Studio Shoot for Jaymee
Just a brief note to say a sincere thanks for a wonderful photo shoot that you did for our daughter, Jaymee, for her 13th birthday.
From start to finish you made her feel special and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We look forward to seeing the images soon and wish you all the best for the future.
We would have no hesitations in recommending you to friends or family.
David and Lynne Ball
Boudoir / Lingerie Shoot for Stacey
I want to say a huge thank you to Nick and Anne from Footprint Photography. The shoot that I did with them was so much fun, plus the photos were excellent too!
I had booked a boudoir session with them which involved lingerie, topless and artistic nude shots with them and I loved it!
Nick and Anne make you feel so comfortable and relaxed which makes it so much easier and the photos are ten times better as a result as you look more natural being completely at ease. They didn’t tell me to get naked or anything, in fact they wanted to start off fully clothed but I offered to go nude first so i didn’t get strap marks!
They are not pushy and work to your speed and confidence. They can give you lots of direction to get the best poses for your body shape and they encourage your input and for you to experiment with poses you like.
I was there just over 2 hours and we laughed and joked the whole time and by the end of it I was just so comfortable walking around naked! It felt so liberating just to walk around the room and not feel self conscious or feel like anyone was judging me or anything
I would definitely want to work with these two again, and cant wait for the next opportunity. The photos that we produced have made an fantastic addition to my portfolio. Plus my boyfriend loved them all too!
So if you want to just update your portfolio, start your portfolio, or just get some really beautiful pictures of yourself to look back on in years to come, then definitely get in touch with Nick and Anne from Footprint Photography.
I can honestly say you will never regret it and will cherish the photos and memories forever!
Portrait shoot for modelling portfolio
I really enjoyed working with Nick and Anne in their studio. They were very encouraging and made me feel very comfortable. I really like the photos I got from the shoot and would be more than happy to work with them again!
Personal Injury Photography for Kidd Rapinet Solicitors
I am pleased to recommend Nick Sievewright of Footprint Photography. Nick has recently assisted us with an injury clain by taking photographs of our injured client.
I was very impressed with the speed and quality of Nick’s work. I am sure that his photographs will enable us to achieve a level of settlement in our case that we would not otherwise have achieved.
My client reported to me that she was very happy with the way Nick dealt with her.
I would not hesitate to use Nick again for similar projects. I would be happy to confirm this reference by e-mail or over the telephone.
