Please read through the following from some of Ian’s many happy customers:

"My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having Ian of Ian Tilley Photography as our wedding photographer! Although he's based in the Hutt, he was more than happy to travel over the hill to the Gear Homestead in Porirua and then, that evening, come into the Wellington Waterfront for our second event - fireworks. Ian was super engaged throughout the whole wedding, he had contingency items in case I forgot anything (like that would happen!) and ensured he had a back up plan if the weather proved inclement. However, on top of all that, he also took some seriously FABULOUS photos! AND he emailed us sample wedding shots before we'd even taken off on our honeymoon :)

We would totally and utterly recommend Ian Tilley Photography if you're getting married in the Wellington, Kapiti, Wairarapa area and want great photos from the most pleasant and professional of wedding photographers!

Thanks Ian from a very happy bride and groom!"

- Brian & Renée

"Absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommend Ian for any event he was very friendly, funny and professional :) "

- Marissa Smith

"Wicked photos!"

- Laura Rider

"Thank you very much for all of your effort and preparation that you put into our wedding photos. You put us at ease from the moment we met you. Not only were you experienced and well prepared, but you also were very affordable.

We have had many of our guests from the day comment on how calm and friendly you were, thank you very much. For a day that was rather chaotic you managed to calm not only us (bride and groom) but also get all of the photos that captured all the special moments and people that attended the day. Thank you very much.

It was great to look over the CD that you created for us and remember the day once again, and see the different photos being taken. For a bride it is nice to know what was going on prior to my arrival - I was able to see this with the photos that you took. We can not believe the amount of photos that were taken in such a compressed time frame as well as the quality of the photos that we got on the CD. The photos looked amazing and have turned out better than I could ever have imagined!

We would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone in the future. Your flexibility, experience and vision has created us beautiful memories that we are able to treasure for many years to come!"

- Nick & Kirsty

"We required decorations for our reception area in our new premises. Ian came in one Saturday and took numerous shots in our engineering workshop of machinery and various related items. Ian discussed with us the available options for our pictures suggesting black and white images block mounted. The end result is stunning. The simplistic nature of black and white coupled with Ian's eye for detail resulted in a very successful photo shoot.

Fantastic, friendly and very professional, I would sincerely recommend Ian Tilley Photography to anyone who is considering hiring one of the best"

- Johnny - Evolution Engineering Ltd

"Ian made the process of planning our wedding photos very easy and stress free. On the day Ian was very punctual and captured some great pictures which were very well presented on CD and prints. Ian's diligent planning resulted in him knowing exactly what to do on the night and the pictures were exactly as we expected.

We would highly recommend Ian to anyone looking for a great photographer."

- Jacqui & Daryl

"Planning a wedding can be very stressful and so many things can go wrong but Ian Tilley put me at ease with his efficiency and professionalism so that no matter what else may go wrong we had found a fantastic photographer to record the memories of our wedding day. We couldn't have been more grateful and impressed with the beautiful photographs that were captured and the way they were presented on a personalised disc.

We would highly recommend Ian Tilley Photography to anyone looking for a photographer."

- Cherie and Jimmy

"We would recommend Ian to anyone he was professional and made not only ourselves but our guests comfortable.  We were very happy with the results of the photo's. Ian was very flexible to make sure that we got what we wanted from our photos as we had a lot of trouble with the weather not wanting to play our game.  Ian joined in the celebrations and became one of our guests so much so that our guests thought he was a friend taking photo's for us, we appreciated this as neither myself or my new husband we overly fussed on being photographed. We enjoyed looking through the photo's later and  felt that we got a great coverage of our day. 

We would happily have Ian do any photography work for us in future."

- Louise and John Penn

"Thanks so much for taking our family photos over the Easter break. It's not easy organising four young children and getting them to sit still for a photo, but you managed it nicely. The photos came out great and we all love them.

Thanks for your efforts."

- Conway, Katrina, Joel, Max, Billy and Luther

"Ian Tilley took some photos for me for my acting portfolio and I was VERY happy with the result. He really took my best angles and interests into heart, suggesting things whilst letting me have my own 'look.' He knew which light was best and from which way to take it, a real professional. I really recommend him 100% to anybody for any reason. 10/10".

- Jacqui

"We are really happy with the disk of wedding photos you have made up for us. It was nice looking back over them as it brought back the feelings of the day as the photos were actually being taken. All in all we had fun doing them and I hope you did too. I am impressed with how many were we able to get taken in the amount of time we had, and the variety, you worked really hard which is appreciated. Having photos of the guests arriving was a nice touch, and  I'm also happy you got some of each table before the speeches began as that is something I had forgotten to mention previously but wanted a record of so great one!

The cover of the disk and the CD itself also look really good. So all in all we found you to be very professional, friendly, efficient and fantastic value. We got an extremely good deal and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else I knew to be getting married or who wanted professional photos done. I'm glad I stumbled across your website!"

- Rebecca and Aaron Orr
