You don't really need many words to describe excellence but we’ll give it a shot anyway.
From the moment I met Avi as best man at a friends wedding I knew he was right for our wedding too. The whole process of booking AK Expressions was easy from the outset. Avi is a great pro-active photographer and wants to know each little detail about the day and venue.
He visits the venues with you beforehand and begins to paint a blueprint on what the day will entail for him and uses this time to work out how to maximise the time he will have on the day.
The wedding day itself for us was great. Avi turned up at Butley Priory nice and early in usual fashion demanding coffee (a common theme at the weddings he shoots ;) ) and Bruno showed up at our house in great time to catch the grooms party getting dressed.
At the church Avi arrived again with oodles of time to get set for the bride’s entrance and to keep me company with some great conversation. The shoot after with family and the bridal party went very quickly and smoothly coordinated by Avi who was given a list of desired photos.
When we got to Butley we went off with Avi to have our photos taken which again didn’t take long and some great shots were captured. Before you knew it we had time to see our guests - something of a rarity at a wedding before the breakfast but such is Avi’s organisation that the job is done quickly and is great fun! From start to finish our expectations were beaten, Avi really is a perfectionist and loves his work.
When you know these two things you can rest assured that the outcome is going to be nothing but fantastic. We came home from our honeymoon and within a week the disc had arrived with our photos on, that’s less than a month! When I mentioned this to a friend he was gob smacked and regretted not picking Avi, which is a great compliment.
Frankly, I’d never recommend anyone other than AK Expressions and we’ll be back for other shoots with Avi in the future. Thank you so much Avi - you’re a special talent.

I really loved planning our wedding but the one thing I worried about quite a bit was the photography. I'm just not good with having my photo taken unless I'm drunk and I wasn't planning on being (too) drunk on my wedding day!
Anyway, we came across AKExpressions when at a wedding fayre and I instantly fell in love with the style of their photography. It was just heads and shoulders above the rest that was on offer. I loved the quirky style, the backgrounds and the textures used in the shots. It was really different from the formal shots I'd seen around so much.
I still worried that I wouldn't be able to pull off those kinds of photos though but I seriously shouldn't have worried. From the minute we met with Avi he instantly put me at ease. He just has such a fun and outgoing character and on the day itself this was perfect for me.
The morning of getting ready was really chilled and I think Avi and his team really contributed to that. We had the most amazing wedding day and the photographers fitted into everything brilliantly, organising everyone but keeping everything relaxed too. And the photos....We honestly couldn't be happier with them. Such beautiful photos that we'll treasure forever.
We have some amazing artistic shots of us both together and the ones in the church service are so special. Without a doubt I would recommend AKExpressions- if you're thinking about booking them, just do it!
We had a fabulous wedding day in August 2014, made even better by the services of Avi and his team :)
The preshoot and lead up to the wedding was made smooth and easy, and Avi put us both at ease (we are very awkward at taking photos!).
He was very professional as were our two other photographers, and got the job done, whilst still making us smile all day :)
The photos are perfect, and of super quality, as is the photo book and gorgeous USB stick that we received! I would thoroughly recommend AK Expressions, you will not be disappointed!!
We cannot thank you enough for capturing our special day and making sure we have some fabulous photos to look back on and remind us of it.
We have had so many compliments on our photos and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives. We wish your all the best for the future and the success of your thriving business which appears to be going from strength to strength.
We look forward to speaking in the future and once again thanks to you, Lorraine and Bruno for your hard work on our special day.

We had previously not had a very good run of luck with our wedding photographer?..
Lets just say not at all professional! Well it seemed that the run of bad luck was overturned
when I happened to completely stumble upon a mini wedding fayre in a well known
department store in Ipswich, where following a long conversation I was provided with a
quotation and immediately booked akexpressions for our wedding.
We can honestly say that we have never looked back! Our wedding day went swimmingly and the photo's we now have are moments that we will treasure forever! Every element was covered from beginning to end and most of those moments were taken without anyone even realising it?. PERFECT!!!
We cannot thank you enough , nothing was ever too much and everything was accommodated,
even additional bits like having a date with my dress - brilliant. We would be happy to
recommend you to anyone and having said that we have already done so.
We'll be in contact to order more framed pics and the album.... and to get pics of the

Thank you so much for capturing the essence of our day so perfectly!
We are absolutely delighted with the photos, we have really struggled to narrow down our favorites for the album because there are just so many that we fell in love with and couldn't bear to leave out!
You were a pleasure to have around on the day and very accommodating in any requests that we had. In the run up to the day you were very re-assuring and we felt confident in your hands! The photos are something to keep forever - we are so proud of them, thank you!
