Testimonials

Here are some very kind words words from my lovely clients and industry friends...

'Hi Lissa, I've finally managed to get a few seconds spare to stop and say the biggest, hugest, more massive than you can ever imagine, thank you for being the photographer for our big day!! I can't believe how much effort you put into capturing our wedding, but mainly by making us feel like you were capturing OUR wedding, and not just any other wedding. You let us be fun, and you were so easy going with everyone - plus you spent time ding every weird and wonderful request I'm was bowled over with your commitment to those shots! Even those first few photos that you have sent through are better than I could have imagined, and I already knew how awesome you were from our engagement shoot. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts'
Laura & Greg, Wedding Clients, Danby Castle, August 2013

'We weren’t initially going to have a wedding photographer due to our budget and feeling a little uncomfortable infront of the camera, but it ended up being one of the best decisions we made and certainly worth the money (when you see the amount of time and effort put in it actually doesn’t seem like that much money after all!)
We chose Lissa because we loved the look of her photos – they seemed to capture every moment of the day and were very personal to the couple. We met Lissa at her house in Harrogate one morning and instantly knew it was the right decision. From first contact to receiving the photos, Lissa has been incredibly kind, professional and helpful. I never had to wait long for a reply and always felt that I could ask for the support that I needed from her. On the day itself, it was just like having another friend at the wedding, we weren’t really aware that Lissa was actually taking photographs of us (although when we look through the photos it’s clear that she didn’t stop for a moment!) we never felt like there was a camera intruding on those special moments! She has managed to capture each and every moment of the day perfectly, and even some moments that we hadn’t noticed ourselves at the time! Our wedding photos tell a real story of the day, and help us to remember and appreciate every moment. I can’t quite find the words to describe how much we loved working with Lissa and how perfectly she captured our day with her photos, but we are very grateful to her and would recommend her to anybody.'

Jamie & Jenny, Wedding Clients, Bolton Abbey Priory & The Devonshire Fell, August 2013

'I cannot thank Lissa enough. We were keen to not have just 'the typical' wedding photographs and more wanted great artistic photos, that just happened to include us on our wedding day. And my word did we get that! I had never dared to imagine that our wedding photographs would be as beautiful as they are- they are breath taking. We are absolutely overjoyed with them. And Lissa is fantastic. In pre-wedding meets I showed her the style of photos I liked, thinking we may get one or two that we liked, but Lissa blew them all out of the water- producing shot after shot- far better than those that I showed her. I just can't believe these are OUR wedding photos- everyone is blown away with them. And not only are we happy (understatement of the century!) with the photos, but we can't fault the way Lissa worked. So many photographers muscle their way in front of the guests- but not Lissa- she so subtle that we and our guest didn't even notice her snapping away. Thank you a million times Lissa- I will be firmly recommending you to everyone I know (and even those I don't!)'.
Fran & James, Wedding Clients, Danby Castle, July 2011

'We have received our wedding photos and WOW!!! We always had high expectations through looking at your previous work but we couldn't have wished for anything better.
You captured every moment perfectly and your images brought the day back to life bringing laughter and tears all over again. You really are so talented and we are so lucky to have you as our photographer. We were so amazed how you got pictures from every angle and we didn't even notice you were there, we just can't work out how you have managed to do it! We wish you all the success in the future and we can not wait to share our photos with our friends and family.'

Kirsty & Tom, Wedding Clients, Windermere, April 2013

Lucy & Rob, Wedding Clients, Swinton Park, August 2012

'Just wanted to say a great big thank you to you Lissa for our truly wonderful wedding pictures. You've captured every precious moment of our day and we've looked through them at least a hundred times since we got them at the weekend!! Considering we weren't even sure what we wanted from our pictures, you have excelled our hopes. You made us and our guests feel at ease the whole day and this shows in every picture. You're a real talent Lissa, thank you so much xxx'
Kelly & James, Wedding Clients, White Hart Hotel, Lincoln, October 2012

'Hi Lissa, I've been meaning to write to you to thank you so much for our wedding photographs. They are amazing and I cannot wait to get some printed on our return to the UK. I hope you are well and your business is doing as incredible as you deserve.
I didn't get to show my appreciation on the day, but thank you for everything around the wedding and after, I couldn't be happier with choosing you as our photographer. You kept it so real, and unlike so many other wedding business who take you for everything you're worth, you reminded us that kind hearted people still exist in this industry, and made our day all the more memorable. The engagement shoot is one of my favourite memories in the run up to the wedding, and that is priceless.
Best wishes and many many many thanks, Jen'

'Lissa Alexandra continues to put smiles on our brides faces - we would definitely recommend her for your big day x'
Eternity Bridal, Wedding Dress Showroom, Harrogate

'It's hard to put Lissa's talent into words, she is worlds apart from the other photographers we saw & had absolutely everything we were looking for. My husband and I, had taken a lot of time and effort thinking about the look and feel of our wedding; the tiny details are certainly our thing and Lissa captured these all beautifully. Throughout the whole process, Lissa was outstanding, she was exceptionally professional, never obtrusive and made you feel completely relaxed. We both absolutely love our photos, there have been some really special moments captured, which we will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Lissa, we would have been lost without you and really can't thank you enough for giving us something that would
inspire even the greatest of artists xx '

Charlotte & Tim, Wedding Clients, York, December 2011

'Lissa has an amazing ability to capture more than ‘just a picture’, she captures the emotion and whole essence of the day. She has the couples and all the guests totally at ease and because of this the results are truly stunning. I cannot recommend her highly enough and look forward to Lissa shooting many more weddings at Danby Castle'
Carolyn Bavister, Owner Danby Castle Events, North Yorkshire

'I can't thank Lissa enough for all of her time and effort on the run up to our wedding and the day itself.
Finding Lissa to photograph our wedding was a godsend. My husband & I went to so many wedding fairs trying to find the perfect photographer and everytime there was just something that was not quite right - the problem with them all was that despite going through our ideas and what our intended style of photography was for the big day no one seemed to listen. We were shown album after album of other photographers work and their style for each couple would follow a certain format. There appeared to be no imagination and we just did not feel that what we wanted was being taken into account. Lissa on the other hand is a world apart from any of the photographers that we spoke to. We immediately felt that she was in tune with us, she was interested, we loved her style and we knew from that moment that no one else would compare. The run up to the wedding we had a pre engagement shoot at Valley Gardens my husband was slightly nervous but he soon relaxed and with Lissa's direction he enjoyed the shoot. We showed Lissa ideas from our scrap book of styles that we liked and we were all on the same hymn sheet.
On the big day itself I hardly noticed Lissa was there but her photographs show that she did not miss a single second. As any bride will know the wedding day flies by and certain parts become a blur, when we viewed Lissa's photographs the day came to light again and all of her shots brought a tear to my eye, there is not one photograph that we are disappointed with.
Lissa is a true photographer with a natural style, pananche and flair that I have not previously seen. She portrayed our day perfectly in her photographs. She is a perfectionaist with an eye for detail that has blown us away.
We have found our photographer for life and recommend her highly. We are truly very thankful that we found Lissa, thank you.'

'Amazing photographer with loads of brilliant ideas!'
Natalie Greenwell, Make-up Artist, York

'I was so delighted to find you and feel that we had booked someone who knew and understood what we were looking for. Our engagement shoot was fantastic and such a great way to get to know each other. I felt so relaxed and comfortable welcoming you into our home whilst we got ready to go to church. You worked very hard to enusre that you captured each and every special moment. My Dad said he didn't even notice you in the church! You have clearly taken time over the editing of our photos and it shows. We love those that you have put an effect on. Thank you so much for your personal and professional manner in which you have documented our wedding day. Hope to have an occasion to work with you again in the future. Lots of love and best wishes Mrs & Mrs Austin.'
Vicky & Jody, Wedding Clients, Whitby, March 2012

'We would like to say thank you very much to Lissa for all her help to make our special day last forever on the photographs. Thank you once again. Ania and Thomasx'
Ania & Tom, Wedding Clients, York, April 2011

'Lissa recently took some portrait shots of me and I can honestly say the service I received from her was inpeccable. Not only did Lissa make me feel at ease during the shoot process but she took the trouble to personally come around to my business premises and show me the end results. It really was service with a smile with no hidden extras. I would recommend her photograpy services to any business who needs professional staff, PR or commercial shots.'
Susannah, Portrait Client, Harrogate, May 2011

Paul & Dianne, Wedding Clients, York, September 2011

'Hi Lissa, just wanted to write and say a huge 'Thank You'. After the rain the sun came out it made our day, shown in the beautiful pictures you have taken. Having read other testimonials we would like to agree with what has been said. We can't fault the way you worked, you were professional and unintrusive. We wouldn't hesitate recommending you to everyone we know. Best wishes for the future we will watch your rise to fame with interest. Love from Andrew & Janet'
