For any photographer in the capital or surrounding areas London wedding reviews and google plus testimonials are a very important part of our business. For Joanna and myself it gives us feedback as to how others see us and what they value most about our wedding photography. In the old days (that would be three or four years ago!) you would get a thank you card or email, and perhaps you would include that on a dedicated testimonial page on the website. An example of this, because it still of course happens a lot can be found here: David & Joanna towards the bottom of the page.
In these days of Trip Advisor, Amazon reviews and the like, there is a great opportunity to check on public feedback for your potential wedding photographer with google’s own review service. Goole local, places, my business – the name keeps changing but whatever you want to call it, if you are registered for google plus it is very easy to find or write a review for your London, home counties or local wedding photographer.
A couple of days ago this review from recent bride Caron was posted on our official Big Day Weddings google plus My Business page. We have cut and pasted it here for convenience:
“From the moment I met Jo and David I knew that they were exactly what we were looking for – they were warm, intelligent, funny and had a great chemistry between them! They made us and our guests feel totally relaxed and we had lots of FUN with them during our very magical wedding day, their natural easiness and high level social skills are clearly reflected in the final results! Our photographs are spectacular …none of those awkward stuffy portraits, but naturalistic gems that capture sparkling moment after moment. We adore the finished results and I actually wept when I saw them for the first time, they are truly beautiful. I would absolutely recommend them without reservation, for any occasion . Thank you Jo and David for being part of our day and capturing the most special memories for us xx”

When Joanna and I read this we both felt quite emotional, it really means a great deal to get that kind of reaction. It is wonderful to know what a positive and lasting addition a photographer can be for a couples once only big day, and not just for them but their guests too.
Google plus has been compared to it’s rival Facebook for obvious reasons given the similarities, but is well worth exploring in its own right if social media and reviews and testimonals are important to you.
