Testimonials


“A fantastic experience… not the brightest of days in February but the finished article was superb. Made the house and garden look almost like a manor house ! Lesley is very relaxed and easy going during the photo session and continued to come up with some great ideas. She made coping with two teenagers and a puppy look effortless. Chosing the pictures to go into the book is easy and straighforward and to be presented with such an amazing collection of photographs is a real treasure. Great fun, no effort and an end result that will certainly last a lifetime.”

Martin, London

 “Thank you very much for taking the time to do these terrific photographs of Pippa and D’Or Win. It is greatly appreciated by me and the BHS Wirral Committee.”
“Many, many thanks Lesley for all your hard work and expertise! Here’s to a wonderful future!”

Claire, Cheshire and Pippa, Cheshire (Some of these photographs were showcased in a special feature in the November 2011 issue of Cheshire Life)

“An enormous “thank you” to you both for the time you spent with my “hens” and the wonderful book of memories. It truly is a piece of art. James and I were blown away with the amazing photographs you took of our girls and for creating the stunning framed picture for us. This will be hung with pride for all to see. Most importantly, thank you for becoming our friends!”

Lisa and James, Frodsham

“We were stunned by the little glances and giggles that Lesley had captured on the faces of our children – looks we know so well but would never manage to capture on photos ourselves. For a photo-shy family, Lesley had done us proud and we have some images of our family that we will treasure forever”

Liz & Jonathan, Lymm

“I usually hate having my picture taken, but Lesley made me feel so at ease in front of the camera that the whole day was just so easy… I am over the moon with results! A big thank you to Lesley for a fun yet very productive day. I’ll be back in a few months for some more shots!”

Nicola, Rainhill

“Usually, having my photograph taken is an experience only marginally less disturbing than a trip to the dentist. Lesley has changed that paradigm for me forever. Her calm, patient approach put me – and my cats – at complete ease. The finished results are stunning. A keepsake book of shots of my beautiful boys, a contemporary acrylic artwork for my home, and a classic portrait of me for my parents’ home.

“I can’t thank or praise Lesley highly enough for her care, consideration and love she pours into her work”

Amanda, Whiston

“Thank you so much for the pictures! I adore them!”

Heather, Stockton Heath

“Lesley ran a charity auction to support Children in Need 2009 and our bid was the highest – we were duly booked in for our photoshoot.

Once we decided the time was right for out photos we discussed with Lesley various locations and we finally agreed on Formby due to its mix of forest, beach and sand dunes. On the day Lesley met us alongside Steve, her husband and Chief Bag Carrier – an essential role which allowed us to have photos that didn’t include the luggage associated with a day out with two small children! Lesley made it clear that the purpose of the day was to have fun and forget that she was there to take photos – we were a little wary as we are both camera shy and thought that we would both be constantly conscious of the every present lens!

Our concerns soon disappeared as we relaxed and enjoyed the fabulous scenery. Lesley and Steve very quickly changed from Photographer and Bag Carrier to friends who were out for the day with us. The rest of the day was really enjoyable, there was never a sense of being ordered around to pose for photos nor was there any clock watching as Lesley was happy to stay with us until we all thought enough moments had been caught on camera.

A short time after the photoshoot Lesley told us that the results were ready for viewing and we were invited to the studio to view the photos on a large screen (there were also drinks and chocolates!) This was also a very enjoyable experience.

From start to finish Lesley has been professional, accommodating, helpful and friendly. We have ended up with photos which are better than we could have ever imagined and two new friends :)”

David, Staffordshire

“Thank you so much for my personal portrait which took place in late March 2011. I was nervous but you made me feel completely at ease. The consultation after the session to show me the photographs was brilliant and thank you for giving me the option of colour and black and white. I chose a few and have been busy updating my on-line presence using my favourite picture. The feedback has been excellent form my on-line networkers, so a HUGE “thank you”.

I would recommend you to any business person, family or friend looking to capture themselves or those special memories.”

Marissa, Warrington

“Many thanks for being so patient with us. We are really pleased with the photographs you took of us and our German shepherd. We had a wonderful experience with you.”

Christine, Cumbria

 “We were a little nervous when we decided to take the plunge and have professional photographs taken of the family, but Lesley put us all immediately at ease and helped us to feel completely relaxed and comfortable having our photographs taken. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and had a really pleasant afternoon. Lesley and her very helpful husband were both friendly and professional. We were delighted with the results, the photographs are fabulous and we have no hesitation in highly recommending Lesley Wood photography for any occasion.”

 Justine, David and family, Cheshire.

“We had a fantastic day with Lesley, much attributed to her relaxed professional manor and our ability to control the day, we had fun and our photographs reflect this. Family and friends have commented on the quality and conformation of our photo book. Lesley comes with high recommendations.”

“My 80th birthday lunch was captured by Lesley a in a wonderful photographic book. My family and friends were hardly aware of her presence but she still managed to capture some wonderful memories for me. Thank You.”

Rhi and Dom and Grandparents, Cheshire (two separate sessions)

“Thanks once again for a memorable full family photo-shoot in Formby Woods and on the Beach.  The day was utterly delightful and will be remembered by all forever.  Our primary aim of getting a lovely group portrait of grandparents & grandchildren to hang at my parents’ home has been absolutely fulfilled.  My parents are thrilled and say it is the talking point when visitors call.”

 Pam and family, Merseyside.
