“This review is long overdue - but if you are still looking for your photographer for whatever sort of event, you can stop your search right here!
We used Pzazz Photography (and namely Gavin Puddick) for our recent Wedding in January 2019 - and I can honestly say from the get go - Gavin was an absolute pleasure to deal with. From the moment we met him during our initial planning meeting to piece together our big day, from preparation, ceremony, drinks reception, group shots and evening reception - he was a fantastic professional from the get go right through!
Gavin was always so responsive and really helped us figure out what would work best any time we were indecisive. He took time to get to know us and made sure our wedding truly reflected our personal style. Everyone had such a great time, which was really the most important thing to us and our family and friends are still telling us how much fun they had at our wedding – and that’s made even more memorable by photographs Gavin took to prove it!
Gavin certainly helped make our day memorable for all the right reasons - and his style and choices, advice and guidance, professionalism and expertise – all most certainly second to none!
Seriously, if you are still looking for your ideal photographer - Stop your search right here, right now. You will not be disappointed! Highly HIGHLY recommended!”

“Wow! Without a doubt, Pzazz Photography offers the most exceptional and professional service. Thank you so much Gavin for your enthusiasm, support and advice. From the moment we met you, at a wedding fayre, we knew that as a photographer you would be perfect for the occasion, which we were planning. It was clear that you like to capture the moment, the joy and the love that a wedding encompasses.
With a great deal of thought and preparation, you were able to interpret our ideas and vision in order to create something truly special, which was also great fun. In conversation, you gathered together our ideas and understanding of the type of event which we intended, and made some very helpful suggestions for the development of those plans. Suggestions regarding quirky outcomes delighted us all and resulted in some very unusual and stunning shots which we all love. The photograph of the hems of the dresses, with the brides in their walking boots is perfect, as is the shot of the brides with umbrella, suitcases and walking boots, as it captures their spirit and interests perfectly. Clearly, these shots also linked directly to the design of the cake, which we discussed with you.
The photos have been amazing and much admired by friends and relatives, as the brides look so natural and relaxed. Throughout the day, you threaded your way amongst us, to unobtrusively capture guests in both formal and relaxed poses. In fact, the photos of the babies in arms were also magnificent as were the photos of the ceilidh, as these reflected the joy of the occasion, which we all felt. It has been a pleasure to have you in attendance at our wedding. Thank you for your magnificent contribution to the day and to the memories which we have of that very special occasion.”

“Gavin was just amazing! I found Pzazz Photography on the internet when I was looking for a reasonable priced photographer. Gavin was that and more in April 2016. He was never in the way and he beautifully captured the event of our day. He took our ideas into account and was brilliantly flexible with timings. He was honest from the start and had some great ideas for photos. He has given us the most beautiful pictures and they will be treasured for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Gavin.”
“19th May 2018 - Colin and Debbie's wedding day shared with many happy couples that day including a Royal couple but we think we may have come up trumps with our photographer, Gavin of Pzazz Photography, who indeed treated us like royalty throughout the day!!
Several months before the wedding day we had a pre-wedding consultation with Gavin so we could discuss our preferences, expectations and plan the day.
Three days before the wedding Colin and I, met Gavin at our stunning venue Hitchin Priory. He took test shots and we walked around the interior and the grounds to prepare for all weather eventualities, good or inclement! This was very reassuring and made us feel at ease.
The photographs were incredible they captured the relaxed, happy natural feel of the day, lots of smiling faces - all taken unobtrusively.
Our family and friends group photograph had everyone looking up to Gavin who took the photo from a window two stories up in the main building - absolutely innovative and an amazing picture!
When we saw our photographs a few weeks later, we were overwhelmed by the quality, thought and hard work which had gone in to producing and taking them.
The photographs capture every essence of our wedding day, from the bride-to-be in her rollers, lots of smiles and laughter, beautiful vibrant flowers, colourful confetti, rings exchanged, kisses and a first dance. A day spent full of happiness and love with our families and friends.
Thank you Gavin xxx''

''Pzazz photography were the chosen photographers for our wedding in August 2015. Great communication from the very beginning always keeping in touch for updates and to arrange appointments with ourselves and the venue. They also visited us at our home to go through all the final details of our big day and to comprise a list of specific photos we wanted taken. We felt very comfortable with them that we only made a list of family shots and left the rest of the day up to them! They seem to know exactly which shots they wanted to take and even created some artistic pictures using items within the venues gardens. There were three different packages to choose from that I feel are suitable for all budgets and great value for money. The photographs that they have taken are absolutely amazing and I am over the moon with them as they have captured our day perfectly. They are so fantastic that I am struggling to choose which ones to put in the wedding album! Pzazz photography were brilliant to work with and I would not think twice about using them again in the future and will definitely be recommending them to friends and family!''

"Thank you for capturing our special family day. You unobtrusively captured the essence of our fun and informal day in the garden, and we are delighted with the photos. I found Gavin through the searching on the internet and only had his website to go by. Although I was a little nervous that I could have got my choice horribly wrong, I can confirm that Gavin was completely amazing and the photographs were exceptional. Well done Gavin, we couldn't have made a better choice. You deserve much success. I will definitely come back to you for future family events. Cheers Gavin ''

"Pzazz photography absolutely blew us away with the amazing and fantastic job that Gavin done on our wedding day at The Walnut Tree Inn Blisworth. From the moment we met Gavin several months before the "big day" we were at ease almost immediately, as he showed us through how he set up and planned for the shoot. This was apparent on the day itself as every aspect of the day was captured in the natural manner we suggested. Images and then the final wedding albums were truly amazing and will be something we cherish for the future we have ahead. Gavin you are a great guy who did an amazing job for us, thank you so much for everything you did, and for becoming a great friend.''
