Kind Words

I’m very proud of the amazing feedback I get from couples who I have had the privilege of photographing over the years from the natural, relaxed and fun style I offer. Below are just a few of the  kind words from the amazing couples I have had the honour of sharing their very special day with . . . Thank you all.

"Cyrus is honestly one of the nicest people I've ever met.

Finding Cyrus for our wedding photography was an absolute strike of luck. Most of the other services and suppliers we booked for decorations, attire and food etc were very stressful to deal with which meant my partner and I were always worried about whether we could rely on them. But with Cyrus, he offered us a valuable sense of confidence in him.

My partner and I knew we didn't have to worry about photography with Cyrus supporting us. He obviously knew his equipment and was very experienced in event photography as he was always looking for photography opportunities and never needed any prompting.

Cyrus was very adaptable, and was able to improvise creatively on the spot, which was such a relief, as well as being able to run through our shot list of formal photographs expediently thanks to great continuous communication with us and our families. This helped make sure guests weren't waiting around for ages, a real bonus.

Cyrus' expedience and adaptability did not diminish the quality of the photography in any way whatsoever, and he did well to get my good angles, as despite my wish to have Brad Pitt's good looks I'm not the most photogenic subject, but I can look at Cyrus' wedding photos of us and not feel too self conscious. My partner, who's definitely the fashion model of the two us, looked so beautiful in the photos. None of it would have been possible without Cyrus.

We had a video call with Cyrus before the big day and his naturally thoughtful personality made it very clear from the beginning that we weren't just another customer to him, which we had sadly felt with other local wedding photographers, and it was refreshing to feel valued by Cyrus. He even went the extra mile on the day by helping my family figure out how to use the parking payment machine and also helped us both calm our nerves by talking with us before the ceremony.

Thank you so much Cyrus! x."

"We were recommended to Cyrus after he did a friend's wedding.

We had a DIY wedding and we couldn't of asked for a more attentive and helpful Photographer.

From the initial conversation about what we wanted, to the pre-wedding where he helped us organise the flow of our day to checking in with us the night before.

On the day Cyrus and his wife arrived nice and early for the bridal party’s photos. From then on everything ran like clockwork. Nothing was too much, help was always on hand if needed and they were both extremely attentive.

We received our pictures in under 3 weeks and we are extremely happy with all of them, perfect photos, for our perfect day.

We cannot recommend Cyrus enough as your photographer, whatever the occasion may be."

Lauren & Aaron . . .

"On my wedding day, Cyrus was ready and waiting for us at the Church before the appointed time.

He was very attentive and his photos captured some really lovely moments.

We had a video call ahead of the big day to prepare and discuss the running of the day and any particular photos I wanted captured. It was great to be well prepared so I could relax and enjoy the day!

Photos are great, we’re really pleased with them! Would highly recommend Cyrus!

Thank you Cyrus."

Farida & Darin . . .

"Thank you so much Cyrus for making our Nikkah ceremony so special. The images you produced are outstanding and beautiful.

Cyrus was discreet, professional and captured all the moments of our special day. Cyrus was helpful throughout the day.

I truly have nothing but the highest praise and appreciation for all that you did for us."

Sonia & Barrington . . .

"As I was impressed with Cyrus' outstanding achievements and awards, Cyrus was chosen by my husband and I as our wedding photographer, with the choice proving to be right.

From our first call, Cyrus offered kind and attentive customer service.

On the day of our wedding he easily connected with us and our friends and family, creating a pleasant atmosphere throughout the event.

Cyrus did not disappoint us on anything as we were very delighted with the fine quality of our photography.

We would definitely recommend Cyrus for weddings and events in general."

Bride and groom just married at Woodlands House Register Office

Dolly & John . . .

"Thank you very much they are amazing.

I would like to start by saying Cyrus was very professional throughout the whole experience.

He made me and my partner feel at complete ease right from the booking down to the wedding day.

Our photos have come out amazing, we are over the moon. Thank you for capturing our big day!!"


Marianne & Sarosh . . .

"We found Cyrus to be punctual, professional and easy to communicate with in achieving the photos that we desired.

He offered us his wealth of experience in ensuring the day was well organised.

The quality of the photos was exceptional and the speed of service in providing them to us highly impressive.

We could not have been more pleased with our decision to trust him on our big day and were delighted with the results."


Xiumei & Alex . . .

"In October 2021 me and my then fiancée got married in Valentines Mansion in Ilford.

Before the big day we were looking around for photographers, (surprisingly quite a few in East London), Cyrus’ page and his previous work jumped out at us and it's what Xiumei loved, so we reached out.

After a quick phone call where we discussed the venue and it being a small ceremony and not a whole day event, Cyrus offered a really reasonable offer and we knew that he was the right guy for the job!

We remained in contact up until the day and he was thoughtful enough to offer plans if the weather was not on our side. The day came and he arrived early before the ceremony to scout out the area and as we were also a little early, we got some sneaky pre-ceremony photos in as well.

During the event he was able to capture the emotions of everyone in the room and right after. He was extremely patient with my family who tend to like to wander around by themselves and not follow instructions. Despite the wind and the occasional rain, fantastic images were produced.

We received our photos yesterday and cannot wait for the USB drive so we can share it with our friends and family!

As mentioned above, this was just a small ceremony and we would love to invite Cyrus to the big event once restrictions are lifted.

Thank you so much, Alex and Xiumei."


Kelly & Warren . . .

"We are so pleased that we chose Cyrus as our wedding photographer.

I was grateful for his knowledge and experience, as at first I was unsure of exactly what it was I wanted. During our conversations Cyrus was able to help me with this.

On the day Cyrus took some group photos of us with key family members, as well as the bridal party. During the reception he photographed guests informally as they chatted and moved about. We all felt very relaxed around Cyrus, yet special at the same time.

His amazing photos captured the feeling of our day perfectly. I will return to Cyrus for special occasions in the future, and would highly recommend his services to others."


Joceilyn & Vincent . . .

"A few weeks before the wedding day, my husband asked me to look for a photographer. It's not easy for me to talk to people as English isn't my first language. Luckily I found Cyrus online and my husband agreed with my choice.

Cyrus is so nice and approachable. He guided us with our posing to make our photos extraordinary. I've had no regrets to have chosen Cyrus to capture the biggest day of our lives.

We love the photos and I highly recommend him. We can look back on these memorable photos anytime and can show them to our future children."


Sam & Steve . . .

"We were recommended to Cyrus via a friend and many months before Covid-19 at our first meeting we fell in love with Cyrus’ style and our original wedding plans prior to Covid-19 was a very informal party wedding.

We didn’t want lots of posed photos and Cyrus’ portfolio matched what we were hoping for – fast forward 6 months later and 2 months before our wedding and the country is in lockdown.

They say never judge a supplier until things go wrong and Cyrus was the calm in our ever growing storm. A change of venue, date, huge reduction in numbers and for a couple of months all weddings cancelled. Cyrus took it all in his stride and was always a friendly supportive email, call or text away!

We didn’t give Cyrus much of a remit for the third time lucky wedding of ours and with a week to go I was probably too scared to commit to anything, Cyrus was ever the professional and his experience meant we were in safe hands.

We had no idea where Cyrus was most of the day as he is so discreet and we have the most amazing photos of our intimate wedding during a pandemic. He worked with us, the registrars and the venue to ensure we could get as many of the photos we could within social distancing and lockdown guidelines as possible.

Cyrus captured everyone’s happiness and we couldn’t recommend Cyrus more highly and thank you - every time we look at our photos the day replays like our own Hollywood movie!

It is possible to get married in a pandemic and have the most amazing photos to remember what will always be a very special day to us and our guests.

Thank you for capturing a bride and groom, (who were so stressed out until the day of the wedding with back up plans, cancellations and what if’s for the 6 months before), looking, in the words of one of our guests so blissfully happy."


Louise & Matthew . . .

"Cyrus' service on the day was superb! He is very professional and made the bridesmaids feel very comfortable while taking our getting ready photos.

The quality of the photos is more than I expected and I received my photos soon after the wedding which again I wasn’t expecting.

I highly recommend Cyrus for his exceptional service!! He captured the most beautiful natural shots.

Thank you again for my beautiful photos."


Ruksana & Atabak . . .

"Where do we begin?

The best decision we made was hiring Cyrus for both our nikkah (Islamic ceremony) and wedding reception.

We did not want all the cinematic editing where the naturalness and reality of our special day would be lost, nor the ‘posed’ photographs that would not tell our story.

When meeting Cyrus for the first time we explained what we wanted and he listened and advised us.

Cyrus’ experience in the field, and knowledge of photography was evident and we were comfortable with him straight away. Cyrus even visited the venue and outdoor location with us prior to the events. His time, commitment, and passion in making every couple’s day perfect is something not every photographer possesses.

The photography was fantastic and each shot captures our special moment with each other, with our family, and with our friends in all its form. The natural and spontaneous shots (many at times we were unaware of!) show all the love, happiness and varying emotions of our day.

We did not hire a videographer for our wedding, but after seeing our finished photographs from Cyrus, we have no regrets because the photos celebrate our union in more ways than we expected.

We highly recommend Cyrus for all occasions and are hoping to ensure we use him for our future projects - including keeping him in the family for future weddings!"


Naomi & Charlie . . .

"Cyrus was absolutely wonderful on our wedding day. He put us at ease and managed to capture all the love and happiness we and our guests felt that day. We're absolutely thrilled with the photos!"


Jenni & Graham . . .

"Cyrus was wonderful on the day, he managed to be everywhere at once but without anybody really noticing at all.

He captured some very precious moments that were unexpected, as well as all of the key moments you want taken.

He respected the fact that neither my husband or I are 'posers' and had some great ideas about how we could get some unique pictures that didn't make us feel silly.

The pictures have come out great as well - we enjoyed seeing some of the funny ones from the collection too!

Thanks for everything and we can't wait to use you again!"


Michaela & Reece . . . 

"Our experience with the wonderful photographer, Cyrus, was amazing.

He and his lovely assistant (and wife) were not only lovely guests to have at our wedding, but they were able to seamlessly make their way around, finding beautiful moments.

Cyrus has a fantastic sophisticated style of photography; the natural and spontaneous photographs were perfect for our unique venues and day.

The photos were ready quickly, and were produced to an incredible standard.

Would definitely recommend and use again for other events.

Thank you so much for being the cherry on top of our wonderful wedding!"


Devon & Wendel . . .

"After meeting Cyrus for the first time and discussing our ideas, we soon realised that he was the ideal fit for what we wanted for our special day.

He put us at ease straight away with his professionalism and his enthusiasm for photography.

Cyrus was fantastic on the wedding day and guests commented on his friendly approach and how well he blended in with the wedding party – with most not even realising he was taking photos!

After receiving our photographs, it was even better than we had imagined. Cyrus had captured every moment during the wedding with his keen eye for photography and went above and beyond to capture those special moments.

We highly recommend Cyrus – he doesn’t disappoint!"


Jenni & Graham . . .

"Cyrus was incredible at our recent Blessing.

It was a very sensitive service and Cyrus blended perfectly into the background whilst still capturing the emotions on the day.

We have some beautiful photos that we can use for many years to come.

He was also very quick at getting them over to us and offered different options in terms of colour and black and white.

Very talented and we can’t wait to see what he does at our wedding next year!"


Fiona & Simon . . .

"Cyrus photographed our wedding and we can't recommend him highly enough.

Cyrus is easy going but very professional and puts you and your guests at ease throughout the day.

He blends in perfectly with the wedding day and most importantly takes fantastic photos.

We were so pleased that he was part of our special day."

Amy & Dan . . .

"We picked Cyrus to be our photographer for our relaxed barn wedding based on a glowing recommendation, and couldn’t have been happier with our choice!

From the outset he was professional, thorough and most importantly friendly, making us feel really comfortable with planning and actually being photographed on the day (no mean feat when you hate being photographed!).

He listened to all of our ideas for what kind of photographs we wanted, made suggestions and even showed us some examples to really help us get the photos we wanted of our day.

On the day itself Cyrus was calm, and blended seamlessly into the background to take lots of candid shots of everyone. That’s not to say he was invisible – in fact he went above and beyond to remove a HUGE hornet from the bridal prep cottage for which I’ll forever be grateful!

The effort and passion which Cyrus puts in to his work really translated to some beautiful photographs.

We have a lovely mixture of posed, candid and arty shots, all of them edited and finished to a professional standard.

We can’t recommend Cyrus enough – he is genuinely passionate, honest and a great photographer."

"Cyrus was the photographer for us once we had set a date. It was the best decision we ever made.

This is one of those important decisions you make in your life’s milestones that will live and love on forever.

Cyrus made our day magical. He was quiet, stealthy, always in the right place at the right moment, gentle & precise with his requests, absolutely hilarious when creating a mood or shot he knew would work and a consummate gentleman, and a master at capturing a moment that will live on forever.

We received our photos 4 weeks after our wedding and we sat with a cup of tea, a box of tissues and laughed and cried for hours.

Cyrus captured moments always lost in time and translation and he froze them forever, so we can all go back to that day, that moment and see and feel it all over again, years from now. That to us is absolutely priceless.

Cyrus, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your loving contribution to our happiest day.

Your love for the craft and love to the attention to detail in each and every photograph is felt and appreciated by us and our whole family.

Life is about making good choices and Cyrus is one of those."

Dina & Andrew . . .

"We hired Cyrus as our wedding photographer and were more than surprised at the lengths he went to with his professionalism in the run-up to the wedding, and on the day.

His work is much to be admired and whilst taking remarkable photographs which we will cherish, he managed to stay in the background to take some great, natural photos of guests without the need for them to pose offering us genuine pictures and reminders of the day.

The guests loved him because of his personable nature and mild manner, and were able to interact with him throughout the day.

On the morning of the wedding, with all the anticipation of the day ahead, Cyrus was able to take some exceptional background photographs of the unfamiliar Greek traditions as they unfolded and the many family members who had gathered at the house.

He was a delight to have around, without being overpowering like many photographers can be.

As the Greek traditions were explained to him beforehand, Cyrus knew what to expect and was able to capture the events without any problems, which gave us great results.

The task set for Cyrus did not faze him in the least, which we are most grateful for and wish to thank him immensely.

We have used Cyrus since for other family events, and will continue to do so in the future … Highly Recommended."


Sweta & Lee . . .

"Cyrus is a very personable guy who really puts you at ease. He was a massive help to us on our big day. Most of all, he takes exceptionally good photographs."

Dhun & Staff . . .

"The search for a wedding photographer is just as important as finding the right dress for the day, you want to cherish your photos for the rest of your lives and it’s the only opportunity to capture the essence and atmosphere of the occasion.

As others have mentioned the day just goes by so fast it’s difficult to remember everything.

When we met Cyrus and saw his work we just knew that he was the right guy for the job, we were absolutely delighted with the results.

We asked Cyrus for just a few formal shots but really wanted more casual photos to capture the day and that’s exactly what we got.

Every photo took us back to that moment in time throughout the day and you could see how much fun our guests were having, which was so lovely for us to see.

On the day Cyrus was extremely professional and you hardly noticed he was there.

We got to see our photos digitally a few weeks after the wedding, each one retouched to perfection as that is how Cyrus works, he is a perfectionist!

We were so delighted with the photos of our special day, we booked Cyrus again to take some photos of our little boy a few months after he was born.

Our second little one is on the way and you guessed it we have already booked him again!"

Elizabeth & Owen . . .

"We hired Cyrus as our wedding photographer and he was great on the day.

He's got a great sense of humour which put us both at ease no end, and also helped him get great natural shots of all our guests enjoying themselves.

He took an amazing amount of shots so we could make sure we had some great pictures for our album, but there was quality AND quantity, so we are currently spoilt for choice!

We looked at our pictures around 3 weeks after the wedding and they were all retouched to a great standard, colours and contrast really popped, I was blemish free (which isn't usually the case!) and the wife looked gorgeous (which usually is).

I was cautious when hiring a wedding photographer as it's a good amount of money to spend, and they only have one chance to get it right, but I certainly made the right choice hiring Cyrus, he was a consummate professional from start to finish and I would hire him again for sure."

Susannah & Ian . . .

"Cyrus was our wedding photographer and captured our day brilliantly.

From pre-wedding rituals to candid snaps of family and friends everything was included.

At no point were the photographs invasive, while the details that were covered were incredible,

especially the little things that we would have otherwise missed.

A full range of photos were taken that have given us many happy memories of our day."

Leonie & Rory . . .

"We were very happy with the service Cyrus provided on our wedding day.

Our beautiful photos captured the dynamic energy of our celebrations with sensitive detail to every ritual from morning until night.

We cherish the pictures and thank Cyrus for his expertise and professional handling in recording our memories and beloved family and friends on our special day."


Karen & Duncan . . .

"Cyrus was so organised and thought of things that would never enter our heads to fantastic effect.

On the day he got the most out of everyone and didn't miss a single guest either daytime or evening.

We regularly look back at the wonderful pictures and the variety of shots still enable us to see new things that we were too busy to see on the day.

I have been to weddings where the photographer thinks they are more important than the happy couple but Cyrus knows just when and where to appear to get the right picture at the right time.

Thank you Cyrus, for capturing our fantastic day so beautifully."

Caroline & Tony . . .

"After much looking around my wife and I decided to go with Cyrus.

We were not disappointed, throughout the day he was professional and nothing was too much trouble (which was handy as my wife has a large family who kept asking for extra group photos).

After the big day we had some great photos and as well as the colour and black & white discs that were ours to keep at no extra cost we had an incredibly designed album which I know I am biased but makes all of our friend’s wedding albums seem bland!"  |  |  07887 517 536
