Testimonials for SJC photography Basingstoke Hampshire

All from the heart by Basingstoke Hampshire wedding photographer

Wellington Arms Hotel

We were put in touch with Steve through known contacts so we decided to reach out to him. We're so glad that we did! Myself and my wife got such a warm welcome when we visited his own home. The communication has been faultless from beginning to end on what we wanted on the day. He has captured our special day perfectly. He ensured that everything was in check before taking photos as you can see. The photos came out really high resolution and detailed. The action shots and portrait photos are all stunning. So if you're reading this and wondering who to choose as your wedding photographer we really highly recommend Steve. Get in touch with him, you'll be so glad you did!

Steve was our brilliant wedding photographer. His photos are so wonderful and he captured some truly special moments that we will treasure forever! He immediately put us at ease and listened to exactly what we wanted. We would recommend him 100 times over!

"Where do we start, what a perfect man to do our photography at our wedding. He was patient, kind, fairly priced, willing to go above and beyond, he's an extremely nice bloke, his Mrs is lovely, they welcomed us in to his home for meetings providing tea/coffee and never worried about the time getting on when I talked his ear off, if you're looking for a photographer, please don't go to anywhere else, you wouldn't have even known he was there either, unless he was actually setting up group shots and of course, the pictures are stunning, he really knows his trade so give him a ring or else "😀

Steve was our wedding photographer for our small wedding in Hampshire in July 2022, and we would thoroughly recommend him. From our initial meeting with him, Steve was super relaxed and extremely professional. Because our wedding was so small (around 25 people) we were apprehensive that the photography might be intrusive, but we needn't have worried - Steve was extremely skilled at getting wonderful photos without being noticed, particularly during our ceremony. We both felt a little self-conscious about the 'couple shots' but Steve made us feel very at ease. We are delighted with the photos from the day, they captured the feel of the day so perfectly, and we will treasure them for years to come. Thank you Steve!

Steve was so friendly and welcoming from our initial meeting right throughout

the process of capturing our wedding day. I was quite clear in the sorts of photos

I wanted and Steve went above and beyond to ensure he delivered -

all the guests that have viewed the online gallery have said how beautiful the pictures are and we are so happy with them.

Thank you, Steve!

My wife and I recently commissioned Steve Chatterton to take some photographs to mark our 10th anniversary, and we were delighted with the end result.

Throughout the whole process Steve demonstrated a very high level of professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail. Once we had selected the pictures we wanted from the shoot session, we also opted to have the pictures professionally framed, which was also organised by Steve.

He took great care in involving us at the various stages of selecting frame types, finished materials and styles, as well as going through all the prints with us at length to ensure our total satisfaction with the finished product. 

Finally, when the pictures were delivered from the framing centre, they were professionally packaged and protected for transit, and as stated when we saw the framed portraits we were thrilled with the end result, and now have pictorial memories that will last a lifetime.

I would not hesitate to recommend Steve for any type of photography requirements, and we found the whole experience very enjoyable and problem free.

"I really can’t begin to thank Steve enough for the beautiful photos he captured of our wedding .Steve provided a truly excellent service from start to finish and made us both feel so at ease throughout the process (which isn’t an easy job as I’m usually very camera shy). 

Steve was incredibly professional and managed to capture our day exactly as we hoped. He always seemed to be in the right place to capture all of the best moments but was in no way intrusive and really helped us to create the relaxed atmosphere we wanted for the day. Many of our guests commented on how lovely he was and on what beautiful photos he took. 

I can not recommend Steve’s service highly enough and will certainly be personally recommending him to any local friends who have wedding or special events in the future.

Emily and James 2019

A great experience for a family photoshoot. Quick to respond to our enquiry and easy to book. When we arrived at venue, found that Steve had arrived early, scouted the best locations and was already set up. He then did a great job in corralling all the family, including some young kids so that he was able to get some great photos. These were then sent to us very promptly. Would definitely recommend.

Stephen was the photographer for our wedding and has given us the most perfect memories of our day. From our initial meeting, to supporting us in leading up to the day, and on the day itself, Steven was so welcoming and helpful in offering advice without being too directive. He is such a skilled photographer, who allowed the day to flow and went way beyond our expectations. We would 100% recommend him and thank you so much :)
From France 2018

Steve is an amazing photographer and is incredibly friendly and professional. He seamlessly slid into our big day and has taken wonderful photographs that we will treasure forever. I can not recommend him highly enough! If I could, I would give him 10 stars!

David and Beckie 2018



We were so taken by the sample photos on Steve's website that we had to arrange to meet him. Steve really took the time to understand what it was that we liked about his photos and even did a few demo shots before the big day. On the day, Steve made us feel at ease and seamlessly captured the shots that we wanted. The day wouldn’t have been the same without him and needles to say we are delighted with the photos.

Carla and Chris 2018


From the moment we met Steve at a wedding fair back in 2016 we have been extremely pleased with the service offered. He is very professional, caring and understanding of your needs. The laid back approach we have had at our meetings is a welcome change, it makes you instantly strike a good relationship up thus making your preparations much easier as he gets a good understanding of you and your needs. Our pre-wedding photo shoot at our venue was a lovely idea and it gave Steve an insight into how we work together as a couple and also gave us ideas of photos we would like on the big day. Come the wedding day everything was 100% perfection. We have been back to view the photos taken, again it was all very chilled and relaxed, just need to choose some for our album, they are all so good, we have a hard decision to make. Would not hesitate to use Steve again.

Yvonne and Kevin 2017


Thank you Steve for the wedding photos.

We love looking at them and remembering the wonderful day.

Hope to see you soon.

Love from Nicki and Neil  2016

Hi Steve,

So very very pleased with both albums.
The main album itself is fantastic quality filled with the most beautiful photos and the coffee table book again absolutely lovely and we just love the front cover, what a nice touch.
Thanks Steve for the lovely memories.

Hi Stephen,

For some reason, we thought we had already thanked you for our photographs!   Sorry for this late response...
We were delighted with the photos you took of our Reception in September - you captured everyone in a very natural way and we have some lovely images as a result. We barely noticed you on the night taking all those photos (are you a Ninja in disguise?!) 
Anyway, thanks very much - we will certainly recommend you!
Kind Regards,
Peter & Mary 


Hi Steve,

We cannot thank you enough for doing our wedding photography. It was a pleasure to work with you and the final result was so much more beautiful then we could ever imagine. You put us at ease and made sure every special moment was captured.

You saved us at a critical moment in our wedding planning as a week before the wedding our photographer dropped out and we will always appreciate you doing it at such short notice. 

To everyone out there I would definitely recommend Steve he is brilliant at photography and is friendly and easy to get on with.

Thank you so much.

Hi Steve,
We were very glad to have Steve at our wedding day as he is an amazing photographer.
He took a lot of natural pictures and especially we asked Steve to take a lot of pictures of our son.
We can't wait to have Steve to take pictures of our newborn in 2013.
Thank you Steve for all your time and effort.
Love from Shane and Fiona x


Dear Steve,
We are delighted with the results of our daughters Wedding Pictures. You were very professional and unobtrusive on the day and the photographs are of a high quality.
Thank you
John and Maggie 


Dear Steve
Both Carly and I are extremily grateful for your work on our wedding Photography. Your service is excellent, from the initial meeting to the big day,to the speed and quality that you produced after the event. You felt more like a guest at our wedding than the photographer.
Many Thanks from the both of us
Carly and Glen


Dear Steve,
Couldn't have done it without you!!
Many Thanks 
Hannah and Jon 


Dear Steve,
We were so pleased to meet you and have you produce the photographs for our wedding day. From the moment we met you we knew we'd made the right choice to ask for your photography skills. You showed us some wonderful photos and talked through how things might work for the day. Then we met you shortly after for a 'comfort' photo shoot - this was a great idea and put both of us at rest.
On our wedding day, we already knew what to expect!
You did a lovely job on the day. Everyone said that you were warm and friendly. You helped to make our day very special. After the wedding, you produced such a lovely photo album, we're so very pleased with. We would certainly have no hesitation recommending you to anyone else who needs a photographer. If you have prospective customers and they want to talk to anyone first for a recommendation, then you would be very welcome of putting them in contact with us.
Thank you once again and very best wishes for the future.
Lisa and Mark
