Lucy J Toms - Photography | TESTIMONIALS



Oli & Kirsten, Wedding at St Lawrence Church, Chobham & Reception at Woodcote House School

"When picking our wedding photographer, we didn't only want someone who can take brilliant photographs but who is also fun to be around during our special day. Lucy couldn't have met this brief more perfectly. She is an absolute natural at keeping everyone smiling, and is a genuinely wonderful and calming person to be around. It felt like we had known her for years. We opted not to hire a videographer in the end, but with Lucy's beautiful photos capturing the day in every detail, it turns out we didn't need one anyway. We cannot thank her enough, nor recommend her more highly."

We are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photos. We knew from the start that we wanted very natural shots which really captured the day and which told a story, and that's exactly what Lucy did. Lucy was an absolute pleasure to be around and many of our guests commented on how well she fitted in (even on the dance floor!). Lucy is wonderfully fun, friendly and professional and made us both feel comfortable and completely at ease, so that our photos are full of laughs and beautiful moments that we will treasure forever. We can't thank Lucy enough for doing such an amazing job at capturing our special day and would highly recommend her.


Harriet & Jamie, Wedding at Royal Chapel, Windsor

"Lucy was everything we hoped she would be - and much more.  From the moment she arrived at the house she just fitted in with everything and everyone - having her there was totally seamless.  She has a wonderful calm, but fun personality too who everybody instantly warmed to.  She is excellent at capturing reportage style photography, where the photographer really tells a story through the images.  She worked SO hard, my parents couldn't believe how much energy and enthusiasm she had, right up until the very end of the night, which meant that we got so many brilliant shots.  As I work for Brides Magazine, I know how important it is to get the detail shots as well as people shots, and Lucy managed to get all of these on her own - which is pretty impressive.  I couldn't recommend her more."

"Lucy is a great friend and neighbour. She also takes really wonderful photographs.  On a golden autumn day last year she took some beautiful pictures of my ageing, beloved Labrador in our meadow; and more recently some of me working in my studio for a community arts project. Not naturally at ease in front of the camera, I couldn't believe how much fun we had!  Aside from the laughter and music and chat, Lucy has a remarkable knack of diffusing any self consciousness, dreaming up clever distractions, and then taking exceptional photographs. The results always look spontaneous and completely natural. As a fellow artist I understand colour and light and the importance of composition...all of which are incredibly challenging to bring together in a successful and original way. Lucy just knows how to nail it every time. "

“Lucy in a nutshell you ROCK!  Thank goodness we chose you to be our wedding photographer.  Lucy captured the day exactly as we wanted and the photos are beyond perfect.  We just got on with our day as a bride and groom should while Lucy worked her magic and captured everything with such beauty and perfection.  I look back on our photos and am immediately transported back to the best day of our lives.  Lucy had to deal with a large venue, bossy bride, two year old twins and our crazy guests but my goodness did she deal with it.  She took it all in her stride, always with a smile on her face and nothing was too much trouble.  Lucy you have told a magical story in pictures which are incredible and we are so grateful for everything, we cannot thank you enough you super super talented gem. Thanks a million.  


Liz & Nicholas, Wedding Photography, St. Mary's Church & Village Hall, Coddenham, Suffolk

Once we had begun planning our wedding, our priority was to find an exceptional photographer to help capture the 'natural images' of our special day. We met up with Lucy and after discussing our ideas for the day, we immediately knew that she would be perfect person in helping us reminisce our day for years to come. Her attention to detail, professionalism and ability to help us stay relaxed and just enjoy the day are only a few of her many talents. Lucy understood the style and vibe we were aiming for on our wedding day and she was able to capture the moments beautifully. We cannot thank her enough for all the hard work she put in and the running around she did to ensure it all went smoothly. We feel so fortunate that we were able to hire her and that our date was open. Our day was photographed perfectly and we are overjoyed with the result. We will definitely call on her again in the future for a photo shoot and have spoken very highly of Lucy to my colleagues and friends that they do too.

"We cannot recommend Lucy enough! Aside from the fact that she produced some stunning photography, she was also an absolute pleasure to be around on our wedding day (and in general!). She is positive, calm and really supportive. She listens carefully to what you want and then delivers it. A lot of wedding photography can end up looking the same, but Lucy has real skill and manages to capture the uniqueness of your day. The collection we ended up with really allows us to re-live the entire day, from start to finish, which after all is the point. Can't recommend her enough! Thanks Lucy!"  



Emily & Caspar, Wedding Photography at Chelsea Old Church, London

"We chose the gorgeous Lucy J to be our wedding photographer and we could not have been happier.
We wanted lovely natural, journalistic-style photos rather than the typical staged and stiff wedding pictures you so often see and Lucy delivered beautifully. She made all our family and guests feel completely at ease with her lovely smile and bubbly personality and her shots reflect that. Now that we have two little girls we want to get her back for more...!"   


Anna & Ian, Wedding Photography at Barnsley House in the Cotswolds

"I can't thank Lucy enough for the incredible job she did on our wedding day. She listened to what we wanted to capture from the day and she exceeded our expectations. We have had several compliments from guests on how lovely Lucy was and she got the balance spot on between personable and professional. So delighted she was our photographer. Thank you Lucy!"  


Claire & Ali, Wedding Photography, Clapham, London

"We can't recommend Lucy highly enough. She was amazing to have around on our big day. She made everyone feel completely at ease and captured some beautiful moments that we are now able to cherish forever. So many of our friends and family have commented since on what a joy she was to have around. Her beautiful photography speaks for itself but she was so much more than just the photographer. I know our friends getting married in the future will be asking for her number! "

"Lucy came to us highly recommended, and after looking at her website and (importantly) speaking with her, we both felt very confident to give her the job of taking our precious wedding photographs. How pleased and delighted we were that we chose Lucy to be our wedding photographer! Lucy’s manner was superb – she put everyone at ease straight away. We wanted a combination of (mainly) relaxed and (some) more formal photographs and Lucy understood that and gave us that perfect mix. Lucy’s photographs perfectly captured the joy of the day; every time I look at them they transport me straight back to the happiness I felt. If you want a photographer who has more than knowledge, skills and experience then look no further – Lucy adds something special to all of those ingredients. Thank you Lucy."

We were delighted with the family portraits Lucy did for us, relaxed, personal and great fun creating an album of wonderful memories to cherish in the years ahead.  Even our teenagers enjoyed the experience!  


James & Claudia, Wedding Photography, Ibiza

“Lucy absolutely blew us away with her photographic work for our wedding. We needed someone who could operate under intense pressure, who would be easy to have around in difficult circumstances and could provide us with shots that would give us the memories we were hoping for on this day. She not only fulfilled all of these criteria but came up with original ideas during the shooting of it and then in the editing and presentation. She was quite simply the best value of all the things we paid for for our wedding. We couldn't recommend her highly enough”

"We hired Lucy for a three day event to cover everything from a cocktail party for key stakeholders to consumer interaction in the race village to the corporate guest experience during a pro-am sailing event. Lucy was flexible,  creative and charming to work with and she had great rapport with our guests . We are thrilled with the results and Lucy's talent for capturing human interaction and expression are what makes her stand out from other photographers I have worked with. I have no hesitation in recommending Lucy's work."

"If you're in need of a talented, organised and all round brilliant photographer, then look no further tha n Lucy! She photographed our wedding and we can't recommend her highly enough. Firstly, Lucy's personality, humorous nuances and attention to detail made all of our guests feel completely relaxed (many wanted to befriend her by the end of the night!). Secondly, every single one of our guests have commented on what a pleasure she was to have around. The end result was some beautifully captured photos, lasting memories to treasure and we couldn't be any happier with her work. Thanks again Lucy."

"Lucy has photographed several festivals for me over the years, managing to get those grand sweeping event shots as well as the intimate and personal ones - the brief was huge and she delivered every time. She also shot our wedding and remains the only person to be able to get great pictures of our three young boys. People warm to Lucy instantly and it really shows in her photos."

Lucy J has an amazing eye for a shot; her compositions always have that ideal backdrop and wonderful light. Her energy, enthusiasm and warmth make being her subject a pleasure. Lucy recently photographed my friends, my son and me one Autumnal afternoon, and the results are beautiful: natural photographs that perfectly capture our characters and the fun we had that day.

“Lucy is a truly fantastic photographer. Professional, fun, creative and at the top of her game. I assigned her the task of taking some good and professional profile shots of me. She completely surpassed the brief and captured the very essence of who I am. It was incredible and she provided me with a wonderful variety of images...some professional, some very creative, some smart and plenty of images that just made you smile. She is the complete package and along with her bubbly personality makes the whole experience one to remember.”

Lucy came to our office to take new corporate shots for our company website that we could also use for PR materials. We gave her a brief that we wanted location exterior shots as well as interior studio shots with a twist to give our clients a feel for the ‘real people’ of Zircon by having the studio shots taken with items linked to our talents.  Lucy was amazing at making each person feel at ease and was bubbly, friendly and extremely professional.  Each person was given plenty of time to make sure they were happy with their photographs.  It was great that Lucy spent time going through the photos with each person to make sure that they were happy.  Lucy did an outstanding job as there were 13 people to photograph and she gave each person the individual time and attention that was needed.  I would highly recommend Lucy as we are extremely pleased with the results and received access to the photographs the next day so we could start to use them straight away.  Thank you so much for a great experience and great results.
