My husband and I adore our wedding and engagement photos. Murray's eye for detail and his remarkable ability to blend into background has allowed him to capture the day perfectly!Like many, we postponed our wedding due to the pandemic but booked Murray for an impromptu photo session to commemorate our would be wedding day. On the actual wedding day, a whole year later, it felt as if we were greeting an old friend.Our guests also commented on how lovely Murray was, sharing hints and tips for catching the best pictures. We now have many budding photographers.We've already recommended Murray to several friends and would do so again in a heartbeat! Thank you Murray!

I discovered Murray via my venue's Instagram account and decided to look him up. I absolutely loved his natural style of photography and enquired, and luckily he was free on our wedding date in August this year. We had an engagement shoot as we thought it would be a good opportunity to meet Murray and also get used to being in front of the camera.From our first Zoom meeting right up to the wedding day Murray was always very professional, friendly and co-operative.We were absolutely thrilled with the wedding photos. (Every time I look at them I start to well up). He was very professional and easy going on the day and got on well with all the guests. I loved how he captured special moments when you didn't even know he was around. I would definitely recommend him, you will not be disappointed!Thank you Murray! :)

Where to start? From the moment we booked Murray for our wedding day, he has been professional, accommodating and friendly. We were left speechless by our incredible wedding photos- they are everything we dreamed of and more. Murray captured so much amazing detail and many emotions within our special day which we will cherish forever. On the day itself Murray was calming, attentive and fitted into the day so seamlessly. Having our photos taken felt so natural. Highly recommend Murray to anybody looking for a wedding photographer!

If there were a Patron Saint of Photography for the modern era, then Murray is it! An exquisite eye for detail and balance, nothing is too much trouble, he puts an incredible amount of work and thought into getting the right shot and then the post production treatments are meltingly lush.. atmosphere and life oozes from the image, yet it is a still image. Murray is highly professional, responds to every query using his depth of knowledge and experience and will listen and then solve every request. Murray is very interpersonal yet manages to take photos and you might not even realise that he is there... as I say.. I think he really is a Saint!

We would definitely recommend Murray as a wedding photographer. Not only did he capture some truly incredible photos of our day, he was such a pleasure to have around. We unfortunately had to reschedule our wedding due to the pandemic and he was so supportive and helpful throughout the whole process. Most importantly he listened to what we wanted and then delivered on that.

Murray is an excellent photographer! We are so pleased with the photos and I am very fussy having worked with many photographers in the past. Murray not only has a great eye for a perfect shot, he also reads the room well and gathers people together without intrusion or rushing. He is personable too and gets along with everyone in your party. I strongly recommend Murray to any couples looking for a wedding photographer.

Murray is an amazing photographer! He managed to capture the magic and joy of our big day in the pictures he took. He made everyone in the room feel at ease when he was taking their picture. I didn't envy his task of trying to juggle everyone for the group shots, especially when our family kept on wandering off :) Murray always replied promptly to all our emails and queries running up to our wedding day. A quick thinker, Murray managed to make the most of the indoor backdrops of our venue as storm Dennis unfortunately denied us many shots outside. I would thoroughly recommend his to anyone. By far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Murray was the best photographer we could have asked for. He captured every single second in a way we didn't know was possible and each time we look at the photos it takes us back to an absolutely perfect day. His attention to detail really helps you to relax- from that first phone call to discuss our needs we knew we were in good hands. Murray takes such good care of his work and really listens to your wishes. Nothing was too much and he was always on hand to capture those special moments as they unfolded. We honestly couldn't have wished for a better photographer and I would highly recommend Murray for any event you are thinking of holding. There aren't enough words to express how thankful we are to him for helping to make our special day the best day of our lives.

We are so happy to have chose Murray as our photographer for our special day. On the day he was professional and friendly. He put myself and my bridesmaids at ease from the start. My two year old little girl is normally shy around people she don’t know but Murray was fantastic with her and she happily posed for the camera for him.Turnaround of seeing the photos was quick and myself and my husband spent some time looking at them all and was amazed that so many shots were natural and just captured every moment of the day perfectly.We would definitely recommend Murray. 5 stars 🌟

Having great photos to capture our wedding day was very important to us. We chose Murray as we loved other images he had captured for couples. He was warm and friendly with a great sense of humour thank goodness! He was unobtrusive and listened to what we asked for. We decided we only wanted four hours of photos as we were on a tight budget but we were so thrilled with the resulting images of us and our guests. They were natural and showed the great fun we were all having. I would definitely recommend Murray as a wedding photographer 😁

Searching for a photographer was quite a daunting task but after viewing Murray’s portfolio, booking him as our wedding photographer was the easiest decision we made for our big day. From our first email correspondence, Murray was extremely efficient and highly organised with prompt responses.A talented photographer, he also has a professional and impressive work ethic. For our engagement shoot, he was adaptable with his schedule and dates (a helpful bonus given the unpredictable UK weather) and listened to our preferences. On the day of the wedding, Murray continued to be reliable, patient and friendly. He paid meticulous attention to detail and captured the most candid moments. Indeed, he went above and beyond the duties of a photographer by taking the time to put the bride at ease and even helped to make announcements to organise the guests. Both the wedding and engagement photographs were absolutely stunning and natural. We could not have asked for more from our photographer.

Finding a good photographer was, without a doubt, one of the most important things for us as we planned and organised our wedding. When we found Murray's website we immediately had a good feeling. We ultimately decided to trust our instincts and book him, and we are very glad that we did.On the day itself he fit in well, not just as a photographer blending into the background, but as a guest at our wedding. He was warm, easy to chat with, and supportive, helping to organise our guests at key parts of the day. During the couples shoot, which could have easily been an awkward experience, he put us at our ease from the very beginning, making it instead a fun experience.Finally, after the wedding he didn't just disappear, he remained in contact and kept us up-to-date. Then, a month after the wedding, our photos arrived, and our gut instinct was validated again, as they captured so many beautiful, joyous memories.Thank you!

We cannot thank Murray Clarke enough for our unbelievable photographs of our wedding. They captured our day perfectly at Ramster Hall and as two people who hate their photos being taken, Murray made us both feel at ease and it was as though he wasn't even there! The photos are so natural and amazing. Everyone at the wedding has commented on how professional Murray was and how at ease they felt with him capturing the day in the background. This has definitely come across in our photos, they show the happiness, love and joy of the day. That's all a bride and groom can ask for! The whole process was wonderful and we would 100% recommend Murray Clarke Photography to absolutely everyone. Thank you again Murray. Joshua and Alethea Bignall.

We got the photos of our wedding back from Murray and Alicia last night, and we are blown away by how fantastic they are! Looking at them made me cry (with happiness!), and it’s amazing to have these memories captured in this way forever. Murray and Alicia captured our wedding at Ramster Hall so beautifully, and they were such a lovely presence on the day too - really positive, helpful, and calm. I couldn’t believe some of the moments they’d captured when I had no idea they were even there at the time. They’re super discreet, but don’t miss a thing and have given us a great mix of posed and more observational shots. We couldn’t recommend Murray Clarke Photography enough. I’m thrilled we made this choice. Thank you so much, guys!

What incredible photos and a what an amazing photographer! We couldn't give a stronger recommendation.Murray did an absolutely brilliant job from our first contact with him. We saw his photos online and immediately sent him an email to check his availability. Murray replied quickly and set up a Skype call to get to know us and what we wanted. He was polite, professional, prompt, and clearly understood what we were after. He was also very organised and provided helpful forms to complete to identify key members of the wedding party, and to work out the order in which to take formal photos.On the big day, Murray arrived promptly to take some photos of my wife and her bridesmaids getting ready. He then travelled to the ceremony and took some fantastic shots of people arriving. He was professional throughout the day and clearly knew who was who. He was also very understanding of our priorities for the day and ensured we enjoyed ourselves whilst still getting some photos of us alone.One real highlight for us was that Murray was happy to stay very late into the evening (until carriages) and so got some fantastic photos of the dance-floor as the night progressed. This was quite a last-minute ask from us and so we were very fortunate that he was keen to do this, particularly as it meant working a fourteen hour day. This long day didn't impact his work and he still had the same energy by the end of the night.Overall, an incredible job!! Looking back through the photos once they'd been developed brought back some fantastic memories. We could tell from Murray's previous photos that he'd be excellent for our wedding but he managed to surpass expectations. Great work.

When we finished looking through our wedding photos all we could say was WOW! They are spectacular! So so special! Thank you so much. All the emotions came rushing back looking through them again. Selecting our favourites for the album is going to be very hard work.We kept saying while looking at the pictures that you must have been running around to get so many different beautiful shots from different angles. Very impressive and so many guest have commented on how nice you were which has obviously helped you get so many fab shots. Thank you a million times over! We had an amazing day and you've helped capture it forever.We will recommend you to everyone we know!

Myself and my husband cannot give a high enough rating for Murray's work . We hired him and his sister, Alicia for our wedding and we are so so glad we did. One of the best decisions we made when it came to our wedding. Not only are they two of the loveliest people but they are so talented at what they do. They both made us feel incredibly comfortable and at ease and the shots they got are just beautiful. I would recommend Murray Clarke to anyone looking for a top class photographer. We cannot thank him and Alicia enough and our wedding photos are gorgeous and perfect, such fantastic quality. Everyone should book Murray!

Oh my word, we received our photographs from Murray only to be overwhelmed by the quality of them. The photos are incredible and he captured the day perfectly and very unobtrusively ! He certainly has a key eye for detail!! We spent the evening reminiscing, when looking through the photos he took. The lengths he went, to capture the perfect shots, shows in the photos!! We cannot thank him enough!! We are so very glad we chose Murray to capture our day - he delivered everything we asked for and more...especially the sparkle!! Thank you xx

Thank you Murray for your incredible work!Outstanding, fun, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with on our wedding day. Murray is a perfectionist, and has produced over 600 photos of our wedding day of the highest quality. He puts you at ease and makes posing for photos surprisingly natural.We were very impressed that he found out the important guests names beforehand so he knew who to call for and focus on. He asked how many guests we had invited so could bring the equally excellent Alicia along to help photograph large numbers of people.They are experts in guiding and organising people to the right place, for the right photo. No mean feat for large wedding numbers. Especially with the occasional demanding guest who thinks they know better!He has captured our wedding perfectly, perhaps most importantly, the moments that we were oblivious too! And to top it all off, some incredible artistic shots that are truly breathtaking!I couldn't think of anyone better to capture our wedding!!Thank you Murray!

From our initial meeting with Murray, he put us totally at ease and we knew straight away he would be the perfect photographer for our wedding. He manages to blend in and is lightning fast in capturing those candid photos of the big day. He also knows how to stage absolutely stunning shots using both natural light and flash lighting in ways average photographers wouldn't even think of. He quite literally stood in a snowy ditch at one point just to get the perfect angle. The final shots he sent us are absolutely amazing and we couldn't be happier with them.

Murray was the perfect photographer for our wedding day, and we cannot recommend him highly enough. He was well organised before the day, talking us through all the stages and making sure we got the pictures we wanted. On the day he was friendly and very professional, and not intrusive on our special moments. Little things like learning the names of key guests and a friendly smile made the service much more personal.Finally, the pictures are great, and really capture all the joy and key moments of the day.

Little did we know when we booked Murray and Alicia we were in for a white wedding. They battled through the snow and freezing temperatures to capture the most perfect images for us. Their attention and eye for detail really captured the beauty of our special day, they listened to what we wanted and worked tirelessly to achieve that. Our photos are simply breath taking and we know we would not have got that anywhere else.Would thoroughly recommend Murray for anyone's wedding without hesitation.

Murray was a fantastic photographer. Not only were the images he produced beautiful, they really captured the day and he went to special effort to make sure he got good snaps of pretty much all our guests as well. He was great to work with - really relaxed and professional - and several people commented on the day how good they thought he was at blending in, yet still getting the good shots. He was super speedy as well so we could enjoy looking through them all while we were still on honeymoon. Thank you Murray - I will definitely recommend you to the next person I know getting married!

We had high expectation when we looked at Murray's online portfolio at the first place and Murray had exceeded that expectation. Me, my husband, our family and friends all love the wedding photos and the engagement photos he delivered.Murray's photos tell a story of our wedding better than I could ever do. He captured all the precious moments without being obtrusive. We could barely notice him being around at the ceremony and the reception, yet when we looked back at the photos, he recorded even the smallest beautiful details.We received the photos really quickly. When we browsed through the photos, they were more like a movie. I don't know what's the best way to describe them, but you'll know it when you see it - it's a true documentation of everyone's happiness, not just lots of beautiful photos together, which I think is what great wedding photos should be.

We are thrilled that we have got such brilliant photos to keep memories of the day alive.Murray has a professional manner and unobtrusive style. He strives for perfection and his easy going nature was perfect for our wedding.His name should be top of your list if you are looking for a wedding photographer in Surrey.Thanks again!Miri and Luke

Murray and his sister Alicia did a fantastic job taking photos! I loathe having my photo taken but quite quickly I felt comfortable and wanted to pose! The group shots were all great which I was amazed by because none of my family enjoy photographs! For the rest of the time I didn't even notice any camera's which is what Murray promised and he delivered. My husband and I both love the photos as do our families and friends. Since sharing the gallery with everyone we have had completely positive feedback and my bridesmaids mothers are even framing pictures of them! Please book Murray - you will not regret it!

Murray is an absolutely brilliant photographer and you will not be disappointed with the results if you choose him to be your wedding photographer. When we met with Murray for the first time, he was extremely professional but also really friendly and easy to get on with. We both loved his style of photography; lots of natural shots and a creative flair of using the surroundings to enhance the images. On the day, he was brilliant at getting all the pre arranged shots done quickly, allowing us time with our guests and put so much effort into achieving the perfect shot, that the results are so incredible. Me and my husband do not particularly like having our photos taken, but Murray put us at ease and made us feel so comfortable, that we didn't even notice he was there shooting away. We received our images from the day extremely quickly, which I will be forever grateful for, as I cant stop looking at them! There are so many moments that he has managed to capture that we didn't even realise were going on, and he really does tell the story of your day. Murray, thank you so much, picking you for our photographer was one of the best decisions we made.

After seeing Murray work and then seeing the wedding album of one of my friends, we had no hesitation in asking Murray to shoot our wedding. We received the images of our wedding a couple of weeks ago and are still thrilled. The composition of his photographs is superb and they capture the spirit of the day brilliantly. He is laid back, flexible, but assertive enough to let you know when he sees an excellent opportunity for a shot, and the results speak for themselves. Very highly recommended.

Murray was a great choice for our wedding. He was friendly, charming to our guests and most importantly a great photographer. Our wedding shots are exactly the portrait of the day that we wanted. Everyone has commented on how lovely our wedding photos are. We were very lucky that Murray was available with only 6 weeks notice for our intimate wedding, we couldn't have chosen better. We rate Murray and his photographs very highly and would recommend him to any couple in need of a wedding photographer.

We have laughed and cried looking back over the day and all the moments he has managed to capture.Murray was great to work with throughout the planning process, always responding to emails quickly and was really helpful. On the day he made us feel relaxed in front of the camera, which was an achievement as neither of us like having our photo taken. Thank you Murray!

Matt and I met Murray last summer after finding him on Google and reading all the fantastic reviews about his work. After meeting him we knew instantly we wanted him to capture our day. He photographed our wedding and celebrations on that wonderfully warm weekend in April. Bright sunshine is not the easiest environment to photograph in but Murray overcame this with ease. He was an absolute pleasure to have as our photographer. We were over the moon with the photographs which we received a month later. Murray managed to perfectly execute the balance between capturing all the special moments, but without feeling an overwhelming presence of a photographer snapping away. Our photographs tell a story of our wedding weekend which allows us to relive it again and again. We would work with him again in an instant. Murray is a first class photographer and we highly recommend him!

Well what can I say, apart from choosing Murray was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He is meticulous in his approach and he strives for nothing less than perfection. He captured every moment so perfectly, so much so that he had us reminiscing and reliving the day all over again - several times! They are timeless photos that we will cherish for years to come. Thanks again Murray!

He knew exactly what we were after and was able to capture some fantastic shots of the whole day! It was amazing to see the photos afterwards as there were definitely some photographs that we had no idea had been taken, which just goes to show how professional and good he is at photography. Would highly recommend him and his sister for future events. Thank you so much Murray!

We chose Murray to be our wedding photographer when we got married in September 2016. We quickly established that the photographer is one of (if not the) the most important suppliers to select and we were so very pleased we chose Murray. He has a delightful and calming manner that really helped us relax in front of camera and made what can be a chore on the big day as much as it can be. We would recommend getting him to do an engagement shoot so you can get used to being photographed together (not something we'd ever really done). He proved to be an expert in the art of blending into the background and snapping away without us knowing. He is an expert with lighting and natural/contemporary wedding shots, which is exactly what we asked for. Many of our guests complimented us on his personable manner and the unobtrusive way he went about our business. He also delivered our wedding photos in good time and kept in good contact in the build up to the big day. We thoroughly recommend!

We were so lucky to have Murray along for our wedding day. He made us and all of our guests (and the horses) feel completely relaxed and caught the character of day perfectly. The photos are amazing, couldn't have hoped for more. We're even pretty sure he brought the weather with him. Thanks Murray!

Murray is the best. We received our photo's back a month exactly after our wedding day and we are thrilled with them. The day was captured so beautifully and there is not one image that we don't love or want to include in our wedding album. On the day both Murray and his sister Alicia managed to capture every special moment without anyone feeling like the paparazzi were about. Cannot recommend them enough.

Murray was absolutely incredible the entire day - from the very first meeting, all the way up until the wedding day. He was extremely professional (as was his sister Alicia, who was the second photographer) and very friendly. On the actual wedding day, he was not intrusive at all and I didn't even realise he was there most of the time! The photos themselves were absolutely beautiful and really well shot. We love his style of photography and the end result was absolutely fantastic. We couldn't recommend Murray enough and so glad that we chose him to capture our special day.

Perfect photos.

Murray Clarke truly is a talented photographer. He took some stunning photos of my best friends wedding capturing every beautiful moment perfectly. After seeing the album we asked Murray to take some photos capturing our pregnancy and the special time waiting for our baby to arrive, Murray chose beautiful settings and made us feel comfortable and relaxed he even managed to get some gorgeous photos of our camera shy French Bulldog! The photographs are lovely and we are both so delighted that we can treasure the memory of our pregnancy. We always recommend Murray to our friends and family who are planning weddings and engagements as his work beautifully reflects each individual ensuring their personalities and style shine through. If you are considering Murray as your photographer for that special event you won't be disappointed he will go above and beyond to ensure your day is photographically recorded in the most beautiful way.....

He was able to capture our day in many beautiful and surprising ways! We are very impressed with our photos and we are so grateful that we had such a thoughtful photographer. It was such a busy day, it's important to have someone like Murray paying attention to all the small and big details that are worth remembering. Our photos were taken with care, creativity and consideration. One of the best things about Murray is how well he fit into every scene of the day! Even our guests commented on how much they liked him and how professional he was!Thank you Murray for being so easy to work with so good at what you do!With many, many thanks,Jacqueline & Patrick

If you are looking for a photographer who is professional, creative, pleasant, accommodating and very reliable then look no further!!I stumbled on Murray online when I was looking for photographers that were based in surrey (as I was getting married in Northbrook Park in surrey Oct2015) and thank God I choose Murray as the photographer on our wedding day. We communicated firstly via email and he sent me some of his work and I was immediately sold. Not only did he capture our wedding but our engagement shots too. I will recommend Murray without even blinking. He keeps to his word. Our engagement shots and wedding shots were ready when he said it would be. I will be using his service for all future special events [get ready Murray:)] No job is too small and as long as you are realistic,Murray will try his best to accommodate your budget. Cant sing his praise enough.

Murray, an absolutely fantastic Photographer of my Wedding in Canterbury on 26 Oct 2015. He’s not only fully show his passion in Photography but also is a very professional in his work.We were shocked by his work after receiving the photos through weblink on 2 Nov 2015. Just wonder how he can deliver those amazing photos to us quickly. Every shot are perfectly captured naturally.We just confirmed Murray as our half day wedding photographer 2 weeks before our wedding day and with no detail meeting before shooting. Wow~~ He really can take all beautiful captures with what we want. All of them are the most precious moment for our day. He fully shows his talent in photography.We have a big family and got lots of group photos to be taken. Murray is absolutely patient to fulfill every shot. He’s really a nice man to work with.I thank God to let me have Murray be our Wedding Photographer. He makes our wedding to be perfect with his photos. We really cannot recommend him highly enough.

We have just received our wedding photos from September this year and we have been blown away by how fantastic they are. I had researched a few photographers for our wedding but I instantly felt at ease with Murray and felt he had a good understanding of what we were after. He doesn't interfere at all with your day - he just becomes part of it and his shots perfectly captured just how happy we felt throughout - it was perfect. I cannot recommend him highly enough - the only problem we now have is narrowing down our favourites to just 100! :-) Thanks again Murray for everything! Kate and Paul

I cannot begin to say how happy we are with them, he has captured the day perfectly, with natural photos and we are so pleased with them! On the day he was efficient, professional and helpful. I am so glad we chose him as our photographer, we will cherish these photos forever and I would recommend Murray to anyone looking for a fantastic, talented photographer who will capture your day one beautiful shot at a time.

We just can't recommend Murray highly enough, our photos from our wedding day in August are just phenomenal, he's captured everything so perfectly, and in a really relaxed and fun style, which is exactly what we were looking for. We've got some stunning group shots and beautiful pictures of us as a couple, which our family's adore, but my favourites are the more informal shots of us with family and friends, which aren't so posed, and really capture the fun and atmosphere of our day.Murray is an absolute professional, and did such a superb job - book him for your wedding or event, you won't be disappointed!

Our experience of Murray was fantastic! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Throughout the whole day we felt relaxed and at ease with his presence and he captured the story of our wedding day in a very natural and artistic style- which we loved! He was also very flexible as there were some delays in our wedding and he stayed extra hours without fuss. We will cherish our photos forever and we thank Murray for capturing all the precious moments of our special day. We highly recommend Murray to anyone thinking of hiring a photographer to capture your special day!

We used Murray Clarke as our wedding photographer on 30th July 2015. I would definitely recommend him as a photographer - the whole experience was simple, stress free and no hassle. We booked Murray and his assistant Alicia for the whole day and they have captured everything you would want from your day. They were amazingly patient with all of our crazy demands and managed to circulate all of the guests and get some really amazing candid shots without getting in anyone's way or being too obvious. A number of guests remarked on how good they were at capturing the shots without being in any way obtrusive.Murray delivered our photographs to us as a web link much faster than we had anticipated - which was a lovely bonus, especially as we got married in peak wedding season!! The USB also followed with rapid speed. A few edits we wanted to make to the photos were also done incredibly quickly.It was a pleasure to have Murray and Alicia at our wedding and I would recommend them without question.

Murray photographed our wedding in August 2015 and he really was a pleasure to work with. He seamlessly integrated himself into the wedding, not getting in the way and really capturing the essence of what was a long (and slightly crazy!) day. Not only is his photographic ability top quality, but along with it he brings a warm, friendly, welcoming personality. I'd strongly recommend Murray to be your wedding photographer, he really is worth every penny!

He is friendly & passionate which make us felt relaxed throughout the journey. We were impressed by his efficiency too. We received the pictures from him on the next day of the shooting which was really really surprising! We love the stunning pictures so much. Thank you once again for the fantastic shooting!!Charmaine & Vincent

Quite simply, I don't think you could book a better photographer. We are beyond thrilled with Murray's contribution to our wedding day...and we were over the moon with him before we even saw the photos!Murray was everything we wanted our photographer to be and so much more. Our family and friends loved him (that rapport is so important if you want good photos!) and he blended right in, making everyone super comfortable. We wanted a natural (non-posed), creative account of our big day and Murray totally nailed it. I honestly think his presence made us all look more attractive, too!The photographs themselves are stunning, to the extent that we'll be reliving our big day through them for years to come without a single flinch or "oh dear, what was I doing?". Totally natural, in-the-moment shots and full of all the mojo we felt on the day.If you need a music photographer, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Murray either! We are both musicians and live performances were a big part of our day. Murray captured it all perfectly, even in tricky low-light conditions later in the evening. He took some of the best live shots anybody has ever taken of either of us.To sum it all up, you simply cannot go wrong with Murray. He's a really lovely guy to be around, he's super-supportive and he creates amazing photographs. Go and book him right now, before somebody else does!

Murray photographed our wedding in June 2015, and the pictures are absolutely amazing!! From our initial meeting last year, our engagement shoot, and on our wedding day itself, Murray was very professional, friendly, and really understanding.We had our engagement shoot in Richmond Park, and even though we were feeling nervous, Murray really put us at ease and helped us to feel comfortable in front of the camera. He put so much effort in to capturing the light to achieve the best photographs, even if that meant virtually standing in a stream!Murray is clearly very talented and skilled at what he does. On our wedding day he was able to take wonderful, natural pictures while being totally non-intrusive. Murray captured the day beautifully, and we cannot recommend him highly enough!Thank you!!Jen and Chris

Murray photographed our wedding in May 2015. I cannot fault his dedication and he is clearly passionate about his job as a wedding photographer. He works so hard on the day and from the photos you'd think he was in several places at once, yet we barely noticed him taking the reportage style shots. Quite a skill!The photos are beautiful, he captured all the key aspects of our day and we can't wait to receive the album. All our guests have complimented us on our photos and commented on how good Murray was on our day.We also had an engagement shoot with Murray. We found this incredibly helpful to get used to being photographed and working with Murray. He quickly put us at ease and produced some beautiful shots of us. He went to great lengths to capture the perfect shots - at one point involved him lying on the ground, on a chilly spring evening to capture us silhouetted in front of the sunset.We'd thoroughly recommend Murray as a wedding photographer. He will work very hard to capture your day and you will be very pleased with the results!

Our wedding photographs are absolutely stunning! And choosing Murray to shoot our wedding pics was probably the single best decision we made for our wedding because now we have a wonderful set of photographs which will last forever!And here are our reasons:- Great skills: he really knows how to 'capture the moment' with his photography. He doesn't just take pics, anyone can do that. Murray however has great skill and uses impressive techniques to really capture and document the moment though his photography.- Very professional, from start to finish. Murray is timely, considerate and polite!- Highly discreet, never once did we feel like we had a camera permanently in our faces. Somehow he manages to take stunning snaps without us noticing he was there- Extremely creative, his pictures have a 'dream like romantic' quality to them. It's hard to describe, but when you see his work you'll know exactly what we mean. The colouring of his pics are soooo soft and beautiful and they made us look stunning!- Well put together, one noticeable thing to call out is that Murray was impeccably dressed on the day. Complete with bow tie! We loved that! Small point to make but we think it’s a good point to make nonetheless. He just blended in discreetly with our guests.Those are our main points but I'll go on to explain some of our points further below...From the beginning right up until the very end, working with Murray has been a pleasure and a breeze. Before we chose Murray we had a Skype chat with him to e-meet each other and from there we knew he was the man for the job. We found Murray to be insightful, caring, extremely professional and above all it was clear to see from day one that he was above all else passionate about photography. From then on it was kind of a no brainer that we just had to have him take our wedding pictures.We found Murray to have a very keen eye for detail and when he joined us to do a site visit at our venue, his ideas and suggestions of how and where we could take photos just came flooding in. Needless to say, when we left we were beaming! And we could really visualize how our wedding day could be captured.On the actual day of our wedding, Murray arrived at my hotel to take the 'getting ready shots'. My bridesmaids and I personally found him very discreet and unobtrusive. Which was a dream! It was like he wasn't there which meant everyone in my hotel room felt at ease and in turn we got some really great pics of us getting ready.We received our photos from Murray in record timing. Just a little over a week of our wedding. And whilst we looked back on them there were a lot of 'awwwwwwwww' moments. Every picture was great and impressive. And our family and friends loved them all too.All in all we think that Murray is awesome. And I think you’ll find that choosing him, would be the best decision you've made!Jemima & Steven x

Murray photographed our wedding at Farnham Castle at the end of March this year. He was absolutely brilliant from start to finish! Non intrusive and very creative, finding lots to photograph at the venue to capture the spirit of the castle and also managing to capture the whole day perfectly from preparations through to the first dance and start of the dancing.The photos are just amazing, it's quite difficult to put in to words! Murray, we can't recommend you highly enough - thank you so so much.A truly fantastic photographer who all of our guests complimented... we'll certainly be recommending you to all of our friends!Becca & Jake

Murray photographed our wedding at the end of march at Clandon Park and he did an absolutely fabulous job!! The pictures are amazing and tell a story of the day so perfectly that even people who didn't come to the wedding, but saw the photos, said how well the day was documented.Sadly Clandon Park has been destroyed, in the past few days, by a huge fire so our photos are now even more precious as the venue was so very amazing!Well done Murray and thanks for being a part of our day.

Murray and his sister Alicia did our wedding photography at Clandon Park in March 2015.Murray is the most friendly, down to earth man you will ever meet! He made us feel so at home when around him and able to experiment with ideas we had for both our engagement shoot and wedding shots. He has a perfect eye for detail and personalizing your pictures.The turn around after the wedding was phenomenal! The photos were so flawless, really catching every moment as it happened.When looking for a wedding photographer I think it can be hard to decipher between them, but some major selling points to go with Murray Clarke;He makes you feel like he has all the time in the world for you both, nothing is ever to much troubleHe is honest - if he knows an idea wont make a good photo, he will say and suggest an alternative, so you will never be disappointed!he is bubbly, fun and so down to earth, he knows how to get the best of both of you without you even realizing.On the whole, we always said the photos were the most important thing for us, because they last the lifetime with you. Murray captured that for us and gave us the most perfect memories through a camera lens.Amazing guy, amazing talents and I would 100% recommend him to anyone else - without a shadow of a doubt!Murray - you are a star and we are so grateful we had you as part of our special day, you have made it possible for that day to last a lifetime with us - our house will now be filled with even more of your photos!

I have to start by saying that Murray has become a good friend of mine over the last year or so, and that we share the same passion, wedding photography! I recently took on the role of second shooter at two of Murray's winter weddings and I'm so glad I did. Murray's approach to wedding photography is quite simply brilliant. He has bags of energy, an unlimited supply of enthusiasm and an amazing armoury of posing knowledge. If you choose Murray to shoot your wedding, you will be presented with a set of images that will portray you, your guests and your venue in the very best light and leave you in no doubt that you invested wisely in a fantastic photographer! I gave Murray 5 stars because they didn't have 6 ;-) Keep up the awesome work Murray and thanks for being an inspiration.

It was a true pleasure having Murray photograph our Wedding in January. We had a bit of a different theme and were located at a campsite in the middle of winter - so we were really hoping to find a photographer who could understand our vision and capture the style of the day perfectly.Murray was so professional and easy to work with, he made my husband and I feel so comfortable all day, even when we were taking lots of photos in the cold! He was able to get all the special moments of the day as well as some of the moments we wouldn't have seen. We would definitely recommend Murray to everyone! Beautiful photos we will continue to enjoy for years I'm sure.

Absolutely stunning photography, creative & exactly what we wanted!Murray captured our wedding beautifully on 28/12/14. When looking for a photographer we wanted someone that was familiar with our venue & its surroundings as we had an urban wedding in Birmingham. So when we found Murray & he was willing travel up from Surrey we were thrilled. Murray was professional & unobtrusive throughout the whole day! Our photographs captured every element & really show the story of the day! All our guests have commented on how amazing our pictures are & the best wedding pictures they have ever seen! We would highly recommend Murray and his creative photography! We are over the moon with our photos & will treasure them forever.Thank you!Jane & Rory Teagle

Murray was fantastic from the moment he turned up. He was non intrusive, found things to take photos of when I wasn't quite ready. He took some simply beautiful photos. We asked for more reportage as opposed to the more formal sort. He captured the day perfectly- so much joy and laughter. We are so glad we went with Murray, exquisite photos and he sent out our USB stick and prints so quickly, just in time for Christmas. Thanks Murray!

What an absolutely outstanding photographer!! We are blown away by all of our photos and are still struggling to pick ones for an album as we really do love them all.We got married in the South of France but upon a recommendation from a friend and having seen some of Murrays other work; we knew we wanted him to shoot our wedding from the start.From the first meeting 8 months before, it was clear Murray is passionate about all aspects of photography. He had already researched the venue and came to us with ideas and even knew the time of sunset on our wedding day. I think this is one of the many reasons his images are so beautiful; he understands natural light and how to use it.Murray is so hard working, he literally didn’t stop from early in the morning until well into the evening showing true professionalism at all times, yet remaining friendly, approachable and having fun with the guests. Everyone felt relaxed as the camera was never in your face, with the majority of the time you not even realising he was there. It’s only since looking through the photos, we’ve decided he’s a ninja as we have no idea how he captured some of them.We feel honoured that someone as talented as Murray has shot our wedding and can’t begin to thank him enough for all his hard work and all the stunning images he’s given us to cherish for the rest of our lives.Thanks a millionSophie and Richard

Wow! Murray's work can only be described as beautiful story-telling, capturing our treasured moments that we will cherish forever.Murray is truly talented and has captured some brilliant imagery, a mixture of natural 'in the moment' shots, to some trendy styled images. Everyone has said that our wedding looks like a fairytale, and it was. Murray has created the perfect memories.Thank you so so much for being part of our day, you were a pleasure to be around, and everyone loved you:)I would whole heartedly recommend Murray. I met him beforehand to show him the types of imagery I liked, and he listened and delivered exactly what we wanted.xxxxx

We were lucky enough to have Murray as our wedding photographer in July 2014. Murray captured great shots throughout the day ranging from casual spur of the moment shots to some superb artistic shots using shadows and the sunset. Things ran a little over at our reception but Murray stayed around longer to make sure he captured first dance and the band. In the build-up to the wedding we were able to liaise with Murray using Skype, which was very handy.We would certainly recommend Murray to anyone.

We found Murray through a google search but he quickly stood out from the crowd when we took a look at the photos on his website. Murray does an amazing job of 'telling the story of the day' and we were really happy that he was free to photograph our wedding day. Murray was very pleasant, helpful and easy to work with on the run up to our big day and spent plenty of time getting to know us. On the day itself he was very friendly with all our family and guests and put everyone, including us, at ease. A number of guests at the wedding commented on how nice he was! Most importantly we are absolutely delighted with the photos from our wedding. It was a very very happy and emotional day and Murray captured all of this, and more. The photos are really beautiful, both the 'posed' group shots and the many many unposed photos from the morning to the early evening. We are not naturals at posing for the camera but Murray did his best to put us at ease during the short 'couple shoot' that we did and, somewhat to our surprise, we were really happy with the results. Lots of people have already said how wonderful the photos are and I am sure we will have many more compliements in the future. I would not hesitate to recommend Murray if you are looking for someone with an individual style and who is easy to work with.

When I started looking for a photographer for my wedding I couldn't really describe what I wanted, but knew I wanted 'moments' captured, Murray knew exactly what I meant and his gentle demeanour instantly put me at ease. I am not at ease in front of a camera and am always self critical of myself in photos, so I wasn't the easiest of clients I'm sure. I have just looked at my photos for the first time, and I am so happy, he has captured every precious, fun, emotional moment, I feel like I'm re-living the day.....and you know what, I even think I look beautiful in my photos, thank you Murray!

Murray took some amazing pregnancy photos for us at our home.We knew he was a good photographer as we had seen some of his work online, but he was even better that we thought he would be.Captured all the right natural moments, as well as creating some lovely scenes. A great eye! The lenses he uses also capture some unbelievable lighting effects.Highly recommend.

What can we say about Murray “Runner” Clarke...After popping up in our ‘wedding photographers’ Google search we met up with Murray at a local pub for a chat. He ended up being the first and only photographer we spoke to – sure his price was competitive - but his fantastic portfolio and easy manner were the key things that mattered to us.In the run up to the Wedding he kept in touch and made sure the brief was clear – even though our heads were clearly in the clouds. Fast forward to our Big Day and he did not stop – literally – but was never in the way or intrusive, just calm, relaxed and professional – whilst tenaciously going about his business.The result – we absolutely love our photos and really believe he went beyond the extra mile for us – we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Murray for any occasion you might want captured!

Me and my wife Katie were hoping to find a photographer with experience of the venue, Fazeley Studios, and also someone who could create an honest, elegant and quirky collection of pictures of our big day.Murray Clarke is an extremely talented and professional photographer, not to mention a really nice guy to. He made me and my wife feel so comfortable on our special day and all of the guests we spoke to were very impressed by the way he worked. After looking at his previous portfolios, we couldn't help but notice the quality of his work and his attention to detail. I strongly recommend using him for your wedding and other special occasions and I hope to have the opportunity tow work with him again. Thanks Murray!

I booked Murray to do our wedding photos and have to say he did an amazing job, we were somewhat blown away when we saw the final pictures, he captured the whole day and tells the story of our special day with his inventive and creative eye. Murray truly shows his passion through his lens and can only say what an incredible day we had and to top it off have it captured in such a magical way.thanks MurrayJo and Jon

I found Murray by doing a google search and was really impressed with how comfortable and relaxed the people were in his photography. This was my first photos shoot so I didn't really know what to expect. I got in touch with him and booked my photo shoot, and all I could do was wait and hope that I had chosen the right guy. On the day, I felt immediately at ease, as Murray was so relaxed and friendly. He was extremely patient with me and took the time to get the right angles, poses and lighting so that I looked my best. I will definitely make this an annual event, and will be using Murray every time.

I found Murray by chance when looking on Google for wedding photographers who work in Surrey. I loved the look of his pictures so I got in touch. His communication was great which is very important to me. We met with Murray and felt he was just the person to do our wedding photography - we weren't disappointed!Murray was professional and unobtrusive throughout our day, and has provided us with the most amazing photos which really capture the essence of our day. I really don't like having my picture taken, but Murray made us feel so relaxed that it wasn't a problem - and this really shows through in the photos. We couldn't have asked for more.Many thanks Murray, I will not hesitate to thoroughly recommend you!

We got to know Murray as he was the photographer at two of our friends' weddings, and having seen his work we were very impressed. He then did our wedding and I have to say that I can't recommend him enough! He is very friendly and puts you at ease straight away, but at the same time a true professional. For the most part he's like a Ninja - you just don't know he's there most of the time so you're not put off while things like the wedding ceremony take place. Then, when it came to the couple's shots, he took the two of us off on an adventure around the local area, looking for good locations - we found there was an army recruitment drive nearby so have ended up with a few photos of us with tanks, helicopters and a load of heavily armed & camouflaged soldiers - truly unique! We have just received the finished set of photos and are really impressed - he caught the atmosphere of the wedding so well, all of the shots are beautifully set up and you can really feel the emotions, both laughter and tears, of our wedding. He is also very good value for money. Look no further, you have found your photographer!

I found Murray via a Photographer in Surrey search in Google. There were so many to choose from and after looking into several different websites I came across Murray's. We looked at his work and after meeting him decided to book him as our photographer for our wedding along with an engagement shoot. My fiancée was very nervous about the engagement shoot but within 10 minutes of shooting it was like we had known the guy for ages, so easy going and relaxed. (He even brought water and snacks along to the shoot if we needed them!!) The photo turnaround was very quick and watching them on my 47" TV at home the quality of them was unreal. So happy and as you can imagine my wife to be has already got one of them made into a canvas for the flat! Couldn't recommend him more! Thanks again Murray and looking forward to you capturing our big day!

Murray recently took portrait photos of my 6 month old son, which me and my partner also had a few family ones done as well. From the moment I met Murray he was so warm and helpful and throughout the shoot he let us go at our own pace taking breaks when we needed to. When I received the photos I absolutely loved every single one of them!!! He did such a amazing job capturing our sons cheeky little personality and editing them with different folders on the CD with different effects on the photos e.g. Black & white and vintage. On the weekend I showed my friends and family the photos and they all said they were stunning, would highly recommend him to everyone looking for amazing family/ baby photos! I will be ringing Murray for our next family photo session without a doubt, hopefully when baby number 2 is on its way :) I am getting married in St Lucia in October and its a shame I cant fit him in my suitcase so he could take my wedding photos!

Thank you so much to Murray for our fabulous couple shoot.We were slightly let down by our wedding photos from another photographer so wanted some pictures of us together as a couple and Murray didn't disappointed. From the outset he was polite professional and easy going. When we met him for the shoot we were both immediately relaxed in his company. The photos he produced for us were beautiful and we are so happy with them. I really couldnt recommend him enough.A very nice man who is super talented.

We were first introduced to Murray by my Husbands sister when we were looking for a wedding photographer. From the outset Murray was extremely professional, friendly and made us both feel extremely relaxed and confident that we were in good hands and had found the right person to capture our day!We discussed in detail what we wanted from the pictures and Murray was more than happy to accommodate our specific requests as well as suggesting some brilliant ideas that we used.On the actual day of the wedding he was there from the outset right to the end, but was very discreet and i barely noticed his presence for a lot of the day. We were both really nervous about having our photos taken as we don't really like being in front of a camera, but Murray put us at ease and the natural style of the photos was exactly what we wanted. Some of the angles and details that he captured i would never have though of and they have really made a difference to our photo album.We are so happy with our photos as are our family and friends, so much so that my bridesmaid has already booked Murray up for her wedding later this year!!Thanks again Murray, you are the best!

My friend Lucinda recommended Murray to Ted and I after she'd had some great model portrait shots done by him. We were immediately impressed when we met him and saw the range of his work. We didn't want conventional wedding shots, but something a bit more arty and creative. He intuitively knew what we wanted, came up with some great ideas and the results were fabulous. We were SO happy when we saw them. He is a genius! He managed to capture all the special moments of the day in an unobtrusive fashion and made everyone feel really relaxed. The shots he composed would not have looked out of place in Vogue, which is exactly what we wanted. I cried when I saw the album, it was just perfect. We highly recommend him, he has a delightful manner, a fantastic photographer - Robert Doisneau eat yer heart out!Sue and Ted

We hired Murray to take some shots for PR purposes. We wanted some professional photos taken to help generate press coverage on our company, Sound Generation.He was an absolute professional from start to finish. He took a genuine interest in the project and asked all the right questions to make sure he worked exactly to brief. We couldn't be happier with the results. He was on hand every step of the way to answer any queries we had, and the photos came back to us in lightening speed!Murray was extremely flexible and even took a few shots of us with our daughter which was an unexpected surprise!We couldn't recommend Murray highly enough. In an age where good customer service is a rarity, Murray offers a truly personalised and dedicated service, and is excellent value for money.

We cannot praise Murray highly enough as a wedding photographer. Our photos were professionally taken and really convey the mood of the wedding day.What most pleased us about using Murray for our wedding photographs was that he consistently took the initiative throughout the day to ensure that all the important moments were captured. From the start of the day when we were dashing around to finish our last preparations, to the reception afterwards where guests were happily talking, Murray was always nearby to give us memories of the day.Murray was very receptive to our requests for particular photos, and excellent at providing us with ideas for other photographs that we might not have otherwise considered. The after care was also prompt, helpful and delivered to the highest standard. Overall the result was fantastic and as such, we would not hesitate to recommend Murray’s services.Frank and Irène

Murray and his photography was recommended to us for our wedding by some close friends. Me and my husband got married on the 5th April and we've just had the thrill of seeing the photos - they're gorgeous or "cracking" as my other half described them!Murray provided a great service as well as an excellent final product. He's a very friendly guy and he did a fantastic job of capturing all aspects of the day, in both a beautiful and non-intrusive way.I am happy to highly recommend him and I know that some of our guests asked him for his business card on the day.

After searching around for a wedding photographer we asked Murray to photograph our wedding day. We returned from our honeymoon to find that the pictures had arrived and we were absolutely thrilled with them! Murray was very friendly throughout and he captured the day beautifully. We hardly even noticed him being there most of the time and he blended in very well. We simply can't recommend him enough and have passed his details on to several friends who were equally as impressed. He is clearly very passionate about his work and I'm really glad we chose him :).

Outstanding service, attention to detail and fantastic photos! Murray was recommended to us by a friend who had previously worked alongside him and upon first meeting Murray it was evident that photography was almost a passion and not just a career. He captured our wedding in a collection of shots which we hadn't even thought possible until we were shown what can be achieved prior to our big day. Murray certainly has an ability to single capture "the moment" and I would most certainly recommend him. He is helpful, very friendly and above all prompt.

To mark a very special occasion my partner and I decided to have a photo shoot. We couldn't have asked for a better person to help us capture our special day. Murray Clarke is nothing but professional as well as extremely patient. He made us feel completely at ease and used a range of different techniques to bring out what I can only describe as fantastic photo's that we absolutely love.Murray comes highly recommended. One thing's for sure, we'll definitely be asking him to do any future photo shoots we'd like done.

He was polite and professional and his enthusiasm on the day meant that all our family and friends enjoyed having their photos taken, this really shows on the photos! He provided us with a wide range of options for the digital prints and was happy to send us samples so that we had an idea of the finished results.We would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone planning their wedding.Miz and Mike Thompson

My partner and I had a special photoshoot with Murray Clarke as a Valentines present to each other. Murray was great at helping us decide on a location and style for the shoot and his expertise were invaluable in helping us visualise what we could expect the finished photos to look. We decided to have a shoot in the stunning Richmond Park, with a vintage Winter feel.We checked out Murrays website and chose him based on his example pictures and obvious passion for quality and experimental photography. I have to say, we were certainly not dissapointed! When on site, The passion Murray has for his trade is clear. His technical ability and vision is astonishing. I really feel grateful for the fact that this passion and individuality really came through in our set of unique pictures. He also really put us at ease and gave us lots of input in terms of what we thought might look good.We are really pleased with the final pictures and they are just as good, if not better than what we expected with lots of different shots and styles with a range of different lighting and camera techniques.Thank you Murray, we cant thank you enough!
