My clients are Awesome!

Because of my relaxed approach when it comes to doing what I do best, I find that my clients aren’t just people that come and go…they are and will always be a face which represents the brand. For those who have trusted me to document their wedding day or photograph a special occasion and those lifestyle shoots throughout the years, it is those wonderful and amazing people who keep my dream alive.

I love what I do and I put every ounce of effort into ensuring that I continue to keep a 100% satisfaction record. Here are just a few words from those mentioned but as I like to think, good friends of Sam Sanders Photography!

We cannot recommend Sam highly enough! From the start of the process, he has just been fabulous. When we originally looked for a photographer we were blown away by the quality of his photographs. His rate was incredibly competitive and unlike all of the other quotes we requested, Sam’s included a photo album which was so important for us. Within two days of booking we received a personalised information pack which outlined everything that we needed to know. The process of deciding the shots was effortless as he gave you a suggested list to tweak. He also included a list of suppliers that he had worked with before which gave us a kick start into getting other things booked. On the day of the wedding, we really couldn’t ask for more. Sam was a fabulous bridesmaid and made sure that my dress was always ‘puffed.’ He stayed for the whole day and captured all of our special moments but for the majority of the time we didn’t even know he was there! His discreet, documentary style of photography was perfect for us. The best part about booking with Sam Sanders is, aside from the fact you get a generally nice bloke at your wedding, you will receive a sneak peak of your wedding shots within a few days. (Ours where less than 24 hours) So many of my friends have waited months before receiving a picture. Thank you again to Sam, Your professionalism and love for what you do just shines through and we will be passing your details onto everyone we know! From the new Mr and Mrs Forbes
Mr & Mrs Forbes- 17th August 2019 /// Ruskin Sports Village, St Helens
If you are looking for a Wedding Photographer, Sam is fantastic. Highly recommended!! Sam photographed our wedding back in July 2017. From the moment we met him, we knew he was the right photographer for us! We had a pre-wedding shoot with Sam so that we could get to know him before our big day. We felt so at ease and were delighted with our pictures. We also worked closely with Sam to find a second photographer as we wanted to document the groom’s party getting ready as well. He was more than accommodating. On the actual day itself, Sam was incredible from start to finish, helping us and our guests feel at ease. His unobtrusive style was just what we wanted. Sam also went above and beyond for me as I lost a close family member very shortly after the wedding. Sam very kindly provided some photos which gave my family great comfort at a very difficult time, for that we will always be grateful to him.
Mr & Mrs Holland- 28th July 2017 /// DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Spa, Liverpool
We booked Sam for our wedding at Worsley Court House on the 7.6.14. Sam was the first photographer that we met with and we booked with him straight away having seen his portfolio. I particularly liked the way he was creative with his work using clocks to capture times and papers to capture the date, in addition to his friendly professional manner. We booked Sam for the whole day from the Bridal party getting ready until just after the first dance. The natural photos he took were my favourite, we didn’t even notice he was there. He did a great job of getting all the family together for the photos I had requested to be taken. He captured all I had wanted and more. We had been unfortunate to have rain for all of the morning of the wedding but Sam turned this in to a positive by capturing some great shots of me getting out of the car in the rain. I look at the photos in the rain now and don’t see it as being unfortunate. Luckily Sam kept an eye on the weather and after our meal, got me and my husband outside by the canal for our one on one shots which I didn’t think we would get. When we received our wedding album, we were made up with the photos that Sam had taken and hadn’t even known he had taken a lot of them with him blending in. Sam is a very creative photographer that will go to great lengths to make sure he gets the best photos he can making use of what he has around him (even if it involves him lying on the pavement near a busy road so that he can get a shot of us and the wedding venue). I also loved the photo he took of my engagement ring on a newspaper next to the date and ones where he captured the clock or watch so we knew the time the photo was taken. I would highly recommend Sam and did to my best friend that also booked him for her wedding and her photos are also amazing. I have even asked him about taking some professional photos of my baby daughter.
Mr & Mrs McLean- 07th June 2014 /// Worsley Court House, Manchester
We first saw Sam’s work by way of a portfolio at Holland Hall on our first visit to see the venue, both my partner and I were very impressed with the quality of the images and both had the same thought.. If our wedding album was as good as this we would be very happy! My partner first met Sam in person at a wedding fare at Holland Hall, after which she arrived home beaming at what a lovely person he is and had seen a few more images that she was very impressed with, she then asked would I contact him to arrange a meeting and see if we could get him to do our wedding day. After a brief phone call to Sam we arranged a home visit for the following week. On the visit he went through everything about what he would do on the day, from bridal preparation to group shots to the first dance, what happens before the day with regards to what shots we wanted, what we wanted from our album etc, nothing at all was too much trouble and Sam was more than happy to answer any questions we had. At this point we knew this was who we wanted to document our special day, a photographer that listened to exactly what we wanted and promised he would deliver. After a brief chat about his very reasonable pricing structure we settled for his gold package as this covered everything we were looking for. As the day drew nearer we contacted him several times about which group shots we wanted, timings for the day, after meal photographs, nothing was a problem and he assured us he would be able to capture each and every moment we requested, whilst documenting the day in his own style around our requests. The big day finally arrived on the 20th July and aside from big day nerves we had no worries that Sam wouldn’t deliver on his promises to capture and document our day perfectly. Throughout the day Sam was amazing, not just behind the camera but his personality, charisma and energy radiated and he really got our guests, young and old laughing and engaging with them to get the very best shots possible, everyone thought he was superb and people were asking where’s Sam? I want him to take more photos of us! On the day he gave us a sneak peak of one or two images he had captured to whet our appetite, it certainly worked, we couldn’t wait to get our photographs!! A few weeks after the day Sam made contact and said “your images are ready and I would like to personally deliver them to you” what a thoughtful personal touch to bring them to us and make sure we are happy with them… and happy with them we were! Such beautifully captured images, both formal and informal, Sam delivered, and then some, on his promise to document and capture our day in his style, we are absolutely thrilled with our photographs and cannot wait for our album! If you’re looking for not only a true professional but a true gentleman to capture your special day, look no further than Sam Sanders Photography.
Mr & Mrs McWilliam- 20th July 2019 /// Holland Hall Hotel, UpHolland
What can I say, Sam is an amazing photographer we had a pre-shoot with our children before our big day and he caught some amazing images with our children. on my wedding day he captured some amazing photos the quality is fantastic the way he captured all the special moments was magic my photo albums where top quality it was so hard to choose which photos we wanted in our album. I would recommend Sam to anyone
Mr & Mrs Duffy- 11th May 2013 /// Broadfield Park Hotel and Restaurant, Rochdale
Throughout planning our wedding we was searching for a wedding photographer that could capture natural images. As soon as we saw Sam’s wonderful portfolio the decision was instantly made. We booked Sam for our wedding at Lancashire Manor on the 3rd May 2019. Sam was very helpful with preparations and didn’t hesitate to answer any questions we had. On the day Sam was incredibly friendly to the point it didn’t feel we was being photographed at all. We booked Sam for the whole day from start to finish everything was perfectly organised which enabled us to relax and enjoy the day as newly Wed’s. When we received our pictures we was completely blown away. Everything we wanted had been captured perfectly. From every fine detail to the big milestones of our day. We couldn’t have been happier. And most importantly Sam captured the natural moments perfectly. Incredible work and was very helpful throughout. I would highly recommend Sam. We are currently waiting for the arrival of our little one and already planning to book with Sam again to capture them oh so precious moments. Thank you once again. Emma & Daniel
Mr & Mrs Lacey- 16th June 2018 /// Best Western Plus Lancashire Manor Hotel, Pimbo
Sam was the first photographer we met up with and we booked him straight away! He was friendly, approachable, and did exactly what we wanted! He asked what style we wanted, and what type of shots we wanted, and he executed this perfectly! Couldn’t have been happier with our photos! Even with a gate crashing gorilla! Highly recommended!!!
Mr & Mrs Crawford- 26th November 2016 /// Best Western Plus Lancashire Manor Hotel, Pimbo
Sam photographed our wedding at Holland Hall February last year, he came to our house to meet us and really listened to the type of package we wanted, we didn’t want hours of photographs away from our guests we very much wanted to enjoy our day and Sam took us for 45 mins captured some amazing photographs us two and some set photographs we wanted with family and the rest where natural shots which was exactly as we wanted! Our photographs are amazing and we are really grateful that we have them to look back on but it also didn’t rule the day, I would definitely recommend Sam he will definitely find a package to suit exactly what and how you want your day to be captured! Thank you again x
Mr & Mrs Tomlinson- 02nd February 2019 /// Holland Hall Hotel, UpHolland
Sam photographed our wedding 23rd August and he was amazing!! So laid back and helpful. We felt completely at ease with him. He went above and beyond. We have seen are few sneaky peak photos and we are blown away with them. We can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you so much Sam for capturing our special day
Mr & Mrs Kidd- 23rd August 2019 /// Shireburn Arms, Hurst Green
Sam did photos for our wedding at The Plaza (Stockport) in March 2017. He was brilliant from start to finish (and fun!) and captured the magic of the event and venue perfectly.
Mr & Mrs McFrase- 04th March 2017 /// Stockport Plaza, Manchester
Sam has to be the best photographer around. He not only produces amazing natural shots but is so easy to work with, you don’t even notice him there. We have had an engagement shoot, wedding, family shoot and lifestyle shoot from him and I can’t recommend him to enough people. Words do not do him and his work justice. Thank you for continuing to make me fall in love with every picture we receive.
Mr & Mrs Ignatius- 26th October 2015 /// Mitton Hall Hotel, Clitheroe
Not being the kind of couple who buy into overly formal photos, we had a real clear idea of the type of photographs we wanted at our wedding. Sam was able to deliver the style we wanted and so, so much more. On the wedding day, he managed to convince our vicar to allow us shots in the ceremony, laughed and joked with us as we got ready in the morning and managed to capture our day absolutely perfectly. He even seemed to ‘get’ my husband’s love for star trek and pop culture! We couldn’t have asked for anything more. I didn’t know Sam before this wedding; however, should I ever find myself wanting a photographer again, he’s the first person I’ll ring! I can’t recommend him enough. Thanks so much Sam!
Mr & Mrs Bozdogan- 19th October 2019 /// St Richard's Parish Club, Atherton
An amazing photographer. Captured some of our best memories from our special day! We will always have them to look back on as our day went so quick! Magical moments captured forever. Thanks again Sam! Would definitely recommend! Xx
Mr & Mrs Cain- 26th August 2016 /// DW Stadium, Wigan
Sam took our wedding photos in October last year. Our wedding was a bit last minute (only a few months in the planning!) and he was recommended to us by our venue. From the moment we first met Sam we realised we wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to share our special day with us. He was nothing short of amazing. Not intrusive at all, and a funny, helpful, genuine, good bloke. A true professional through and through and now, we hope, a true friend. Thank you Sam for doing such a wonderful job, you have helped us to create memories that will never be forgotten not only for us but for our guests, we will be forever grateful.
Mr & Mrs Neale- 26th October 2019 /// Holland Hall Hotel, UpHolland
I would definitely recommend Sam, he was our wedding photographer and we also had a family photo shoot a couple of years ago. Sam ensures he makes u feel comfortable during the shoot to try and catch u at your best, in the most natural poses. He is an all-round great guy too, easy to get along with and keeps you up to date and well informed of anything you need to know.
Mr & Mrs Shaw- 23rd March 2018 /// Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Football Club
Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to Sam for our amazing wedding photos. We could not be happier, he has captured every emotion from the day and the pictures truly tell a story of how amazing our wedding day was. Throughout the whole day Sam was just brilliant, ensured everything went smoothly and helped calm our nerves. We are so excited to get our album but just want to say thank you so much for being a part of our day. We will be sure to recommend you to all our friends and family!
Mr & Mrs Harrison- 26th May 2019 /// Hurlston Hall Golf and Country Club, Ormskirk
Sam has just dropped off our photos from our winter wedding and we are over the moon with them. Sam was a dream to work with and he is a genuinely nice guy with a real passion for making sure he captured every part of our special day! I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer. Thanks again Sam for our photos and all of your help in the build up to our wedding…your a star!
Mr & Mrs Touhey- 26th November 2016 /// Ashfield House, Standish
We had our wedding on the 16th June and it was an absolutely amazing day! Me and my Husband are not very ‘posing for pictures’ kind of people but Sam made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. It felt more like talking and having a good time with a friend than a photo shoot! All 400 pictures that we received are fantastic and I will be printing them all off! I would highly recommend Sam Sanders Photography for any occasion. Not only is he an amazing Photographer, but he is a really nice person too 🙂 He completely understands that this is a special day in your life and only tries to make it more for both of you. Thank you again Sam and thank you so much for making our Wedding day so easy and relaxed and for the memories we have for a life time.
Mr & Mrs Moorcroft- 16th June 2018 /// Wrightington Hotel & Country Club, Lancashire
What can I say….superb Photographer and a brilliant business! I was your typical stereotype bloke and was 50/50 when it come to having a Wedding Photographer but my god this guy’s work effort is top notch I am so glad we used him for our big day! I have left with a good friend and want to say thank you for making our day perfect! All the very best from Mr & Mrs Peet (Jak & Chantelle) 04/06/2016
Mr & Mrs Peet- 04th June 2016 /// Wrightington Hotel & Country Club, Lancashire
Sam is a fantastic photographer! A friend recommended Sam to us after he photographed their wedding day. I was assured he was very professional and on seeing their photos he had taken I must admit they looked amazing, so it wasn’t a hard decision when it came to picking a Photographer for our own wedding. Sam was so supportive and approachable during the run up to our Wedding day and he was very understanding about the direction we wanted to take with our photos. During the day his knowledge and experience was priceless in making the day run smoothly and on time. He captured the atmosphere of the day so perfectly that every time we look at our photos we are taken back…we couldn’t be happier. Megan & Steven (Mr & Mrs Yates)
Mr & Mrs Yates- 10th October 2015 /// Ashfield House, Standish
Sam you were an absolute pleasure to have at my Daughter’s (Sarah-Jane) wedding to Michael. You were such a Gentleman and totally unobtrusive . In fact I completely forgot that you were around snapping photos! Our day was perfect and thank you so much for your part and I look forward to seeing the album. God bless Gail x
Mr & Mrs Ignatius- 26th October 2015 /// Mitton Hall Hotel, Clitheroe
What can I say other that Sam is absolutely incredible at what he does! He made us feel so at ease from our first meeting. He completely listened to everything we wanted and we were particularly impressed as we had an evening wedding so timings were really tight, but Sam nailed it. Everything was perfectly timed and he documented our day beautifully without us even realising most of the time. The photographs we received are absolutely incredible with loads of really touching natural moments that we would have missed hadn’t we booked Sam…for that we are incredibly grateful! I would highly recommend Sam Sanders Photography and thank you once again Sam!
Mr & Mrs Walls- 06th July 2018 /// Heskin Hall, Lancashire
We booked Sam for our Wedding day after he was recommended by our friends who had used him for their Wedding ❤️ What a lovely man he is! His work is to perfection and we have just received our Wedding ‘storybook’ album and we are so pleased with it. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you Sam and have you their to share our special day. We would highly recommend you to anyone thinking of tying the knot…A true professional. Lots of love Denika & Chris xx
Mr & Mrs Demings- 17th June 2017 /// San Marco, Blackrod
We selected Sam to photograph our Wedding day and couldn’t be happier with our wedding ‘storybook’ album! The photos completely tell the story of our big day and it is something that I will treasure forever. Thanks Sam x
Mr & Mrs Crowder- 22nd July 2017 /// Styal Lodge, Manchester
We looked through our Wedding photos last night and we absolutely love them! You have captured every moment possible of our special day and we are so grateful. Thank you so much! It’s going to be hard to pick what to put in the album! xx
Mr & Mrs Archer- 08th August 2015 /// Totally Wicked Stadium, St Helens
Sam is a fantastic photographer, We would highly recommend him to anyone!
Mr & Mrs Brown- 15th September 2016 /// Ormskirk Registry Office, Lancashire
We have received our wedding album and are so happy with all the pictures! Sam was great throughout the whole day. The ‘getting ready’ photos were effortless for him and I honestly forgot he was there at times. He took beautiful photos and special moments and memories that we will cherish! Can’t recommend enough. Thank you!
