My Skill Set.....& Workflow

As important as Capturing Your Wedding Day Story is my post Production. This is where my Photoshop Skills come into practice including Post Wedding / Wedding Album Design. Retouching of digital images comes as standard. I want to make my finished images sparkle & look the very best they can. You pick your final Photographs for your Wedding Album. You are in control & will review the page designs before printing is completed. All of my Wedding Albums are printed on to FujiFilm Crystal Archive Digital Photographic Paper. This guarantees the very best in Archival Qualities, meaning, Your Album will last beyond a Lifetime. To be passed on to generations to come.

“FANTASTIC….. The whole day was amazing. We had John for a full day from getting dresses in the early afternoon until late in the evening. I can honestly say at points it was hard to tell he was there. I felt so comfortable in front if him even with the makeup free shots. We have amazing photos of everyone not just the posed shots we had early on in the day but fab natural ones throughout the evening as well. I seriously cannot fault anything. We even had some of the shots for us to look at within days. John is a fantastic gent with the patience of a saint to deal with some of the smaller moody children! We got so much more than we expected when we booked him could not recommended him enough.”

I would highly recommend – 5 star service!! John was absolutely fabulous the perfect mix of professional and friendly. He made everyone feel totally at ease on the day and really took the time to find out exactly what our expectations were prior to the day. We now have the most amazing collection of photos to look back on which we can’t thank John enough for!
Neill Harris – Wedding Client – Ipswich – August 2016 –
John took the photos at my daughter’s wedding and we had so many positive comments about him during the day. He really put people at ease and worked so hard throughout the day to shoot some fantastic photos. It is a day we will never forget and the memories we have from the photos taken will help us remember so much more about it. Highly recommend John and his work….

A year ago John was the wedding photographer at our son’s special day. The result of his work was a superb collection of photographs both formal and informal. John has a special knack of capturing some brilliant images of people in such relaxed poses, unaware he was there making a great collection of memories from that day. I cannot thank him enough for capturing the day so well. I would recommend him as a wedding photographer, so meet him, chat with him and let him know what you want. You’ll get a professional photographer who can capture your day in superb detail.
Mark Hall ACA CTA – MD. MJH Accountants – Commercial & Wedding Client – Preston – September 2017 –
I have used John’s services on countless occasions, both personally and for my business and have always been delighted with the results.
John is an incredibly experienced and talented photographer with a truck load of gear to suit any occasion and an effervescent personality which will put even the most camera-shy subjects at ease.
I have recommended John to numerous friends, family and business contacts who have all reported back with similar experiences and it is for this reason that I unreservedly recommend John Grayston to you as your photographer of choice.
Stephanie Evans – Wedding Client – Oxford – July 2017 –
John G was absolutely brilliant!! Rob and I don’t like the limelight so it was a challenge for John from the start. He is the most professional, down to earth, nicest gentleman. We were really impressed with how generous John was with his time and got to know all our family and wedding guests. And the photos say it all, caught all the moments – thank you so much, John! Rob & Steph xx
Paula Prior – Wedding Client – Bedford – June 2017 –
John recently took our wedding photographs. His friendly, warm manor made us and all our guests very relaxed in front of the camera and John captured our special day wonderfully! We were both so so pleased with the pictures, which were ready to view online when we came back from our honeymoon. We would highly recommend. 🙂
Phil Wilcock – Wedding Client – Chorley – August 2016 –
Not enough words to describe how professional John was. Pre-wedding shoot was treated with as much respect as our wedding day. Goes the extra mile and a bit further for s photograph. As mentioned previous not only a brilliant photographer but a great bloke. Hoping we can get him to do our babies christening. Thank You, John. Who I now class as a very good friend.
Ian Fenton – Commercial Client – Chorley – May 2016 –
Fantastic Commercial Photographer! We’ve used John for a number of clients whilst developing small/medium business web sites. He has a very professional but friendly approach which immediately puts staff at ease for portrait photographs.
John has a great creative flare to get the very best out of premise and product shots. His pricing is extremely reasonable and his flexibility and approach to each project is simply outstanding. I have no hesitation in recommending John for all your commercial photography requirements.

Jess Harris – Wedding Client – Derbyshire – April 2017 –
Well… where do I start with this one in a million photographer! I knew John would be our wedding photographer from the moment I met him. The images he produces are outstanding and he is the nicest (funniest) guy too. He instantly makes everyone around him feel relaxed and can always get a smile, even out of the grumpiest of children!
Before our wedding, we met to discuss our vision for the day and he encaptured it perfectly. We wanted lots of natural shots and less of the posed formal shots.
We honestly couldn’t have asked for any better and I recommend John to anyone looking for that bit extra!
Kate Harris – Wedding Client – Derbyshire – April 2017 –

I would highly recommend his services.
