A bride’s testimonial

John Slaytor was recommended to us by friends from England. We were looking for someone local with an eye for detail; someone with the ability to capture those special, candid moments at our wedding without needing to spend hours posing. John was perfect for the job.
He moved effortlessly through the crowd, almost invisible, snapping away through the ceremony and reception. He caught everything – raucous laughter, a tear here, a toast there – the result being literally hundreds of gorgeous, natural images that we will cherish for ever.
He has a real talent for capturing human emotion. We will be asking him to shoot all our life’s big events. Feel free to edit it or shorten it. Thanks so much John, it is all true. We are thrilled..
Kind regards, Susie

Sydney Christening Photography


A mother’s testimonial about a christening

Thank you John, for taking such beautiful photos of our son’s christening. Ever so discreetly, you managed to take amazing portraits not only of our children, but of just about every one of our guests! We will treasure these photos always!
Thank you also for being such an obliging, easygoing, and prompt person to work with. I was truly astounded that you emailed me the photo proofs two days after the christening and it was beyond my wildest expectations to receive the beautiful photo book in under a month! My only regret is that we didn’t find you sooner and you didn’t photograph our wedding and first son’s christening!
Kindest regards, Maria
