They are also lovely people too THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Dan and Beth Bramley 15 August
Our wedding was made all the more special thanks to Mark and Mandy, they managed to capture absolutely everything from our special day and even managed to get some wonderful pictures of our 1 yr old son smiling which was an achievement in itself. They always made us feel at ease and managed to organise all of our guests superbly for the group shots. We always felt comfortable with them and they really go the extra mile for you. We were blown away by the results, the DVD slideshow is amazing and set to music from the day, and the attention to detail on all of the individual photos is really quite superb. We would have no hesitation in recommending AG Studios and we will definitely be using them in the future as our family continues to grow.

Russell Giles 27th November
Have got to say what a wonderfull and fantastic job these guys do. They recently covered my wedding put everyone at ease and took wonderfull photos. Made our day really special. When these guys say they have over 20 years of experience, it is not just a flippant comment. It really does show in the little things, like mandy having a crochet hook to do the dress up. Even giving bridesmaids a lift after we were let down by their lift. Will definitely use again in the future and will highly recommend.
Amy Birkett 19 February 2016
From start to finish we've had a fantastic service, at the shoot mark made us feel at ease and comfortable. He always tried to accommodate our preferences and when it came to viewing the photos he was VERY helpful especially when it came to some of my photos and the editing thanks again mark you've captured my babies beautifully!!
Linda Christina Stephens 27 August
Mark and Mandy were simply awesome! From the moment we met with them at Salmestone Grange, we knew we were onto a good thing! Professional from the outset, Mark was always on hand for any questions I had. The engagement shoot really put us at ease and was a good opportunity to get to know each other properly which meant, come the big day, we were all comfortable in each others company. They had some cracking ideas in terms of photos and knew the venue well so we really were looked after in their hands. Mandy was lovely and got the more "natural shots" while Mark put us into the more traditional positions. It made for a most excellent mix of photos when they came through. Mandy doubles up as "the eye" too as she's the one that spots the bits we don't including people stood in the wrong places, button holes, hair out of place......she's your girl for the attention to detail. We had such a lovely time with them and they're so personal too. The wedding disc at the end was utterly amazing and has brought tears to my eyes every time! The music he chose was so fitting and it flowed so well. We haven't just booked a wedding photographer. As far as we're concerned, we've got a photographer (and friends) for life (sorry Mark and Mandy!!) and will definitely be using them again (in fact....next on my list is for my dog to have his portrait done!). Look no further no matter what photography you're after.....Mark and Mandy should be your choice. Excellent photographers, lovely people and excellent value for money. Looking forward to future bookings with them xxx

We had a totally relaxed time, and the girls loved Mark, we all felt at ease. The pictures came out wonderful. Very much looking forward to seeing how our wedding pictures will turn out. Thank you!
Frederick Parish 20 August
Well what Can I say! Im sure I can freely speak for both myself and my "Husband" when I say Mark & Mandy at AG Studio really!!! helped to make the day such a success. Their guidance and direction along with their calm, relaxed, friendly attitude and professionalism actually made us forget any akwardness that having a camera pointed at you can cause. They mixed in with all our other guests who themselves have all since commented on what a great couple they were and how well they know their stuff! The kindness they show and the ideas and inspiration they possess not only as photographers but that also as individuals is so heart warming and I would not hessitate in recommending their services to anyone for any occasion or event. The results are outstanding and literally reduced us to tears of emotional joy reflecting back on the entire day. One last thing I would advise would be "take their direction, go with their ideas and judgement" they know what their doing! Thank you Mandy and Mark you are "Top Class" and we can't thank you enough. Until the next time. Much love Fred & Paul the new "Mr & Mr Parish"

We cannot recommend Mark and Mandy enough! Real passion and energy goes into everything they do. Lovely easy going couple who puts you right at ease. Always impressed with the quality of photos from one sitting which just makes it a job to choose the favourites. My Sisters wedding album in 2014 was incredible ...so it was an easy decision or us when choosing for our wedding in 2017. Complete trust they will be amazing!
Arun Older 6 July
I can't express how much appreciation and respect me and Kerry have for you both. From start to finish you were both fantastic, the amount of work you both put in throughout the whole day is outstanding and amazing. Also Mandy went above and beyond helping Kerry with her dress, hair and makeup to ensure she was always looking at her best. You both are professionals who put everyone at ease and feel comfortable. Both of you and your company AG Studio will only be spoken by us with nothing else but praise!! Thank you Mark and Mandy for everything.
Kerry Barker 15 September
Where do we start! From the first meeting in studio to discuss wedding packages to our last dance and cutting our cake Mark and Mandy went above and beyond. We could not have wanted for more so easy to work with and nothing too much trouble. Mandy was amazing the morning off our wedding giving me little tips and helping everyone she was like a part of the wedding party. And the photo's taken in the room were a lovely surprise too see as I was unaware if most of them being taken Mark was very discreet. They really were there for us all day even being a mechanic when the best man and grooms wedding car kept breaking down. They took us to so many locations for our photo's so we have such a variety which I really wanted and so many beautiful natural photo's capturing lovely moments and memories with our family and friends. We picked up our DVD and photo disc on Friday. The work and time put in to making this must have hours it is amazing and made us cry. We really can't thank you enough for everything you have done for us, the attention to detail and all the little extra's. You really made everything very easy going. Also you were fantastic with our little boy Max who is only 3 and very lively lol. Thank you for making us feel relaxed in your studio with him and the photo's you took of are so natural he looks adorable and you took the most beautiful photo's of our daughter saffie she is smiling beautifully and not pouting lol. Thank you for our perfect photo's and for being perfect on our special day x x

Natasha Day2nd November
Dearest Mark ∓ Mandy, WOW! That is the only word to describe your work. We have watched our wedding dvd several times since our first viewing as newlyweds, with our family and friends, and are both still completely in awe of your work. We found it so emotional and felt every emotion from our magical day all over again, which you captured so brilliantly. We both got very emotional and shed a few tears of joy as we relived every moment. Mandy was an angel, especially while I was getting ready. Nothing was too much trouble, from organising my girls to lacing up my dress! We completely love the James Bond images, Kev was completely stunned :) You really captured the love we share in the photos and we will treasure them forever. Thank you both so much, we love you both loads ♡ xxxxxx

Fantastic photographer! Mark made us as a family feel so at ease we didn't feel as if we were posing for shots. The way he captured my children's personality's within the photographs was truly remarkable. There was never any pressure to purchase so many photographs like a lot of photographers do. An honest great value and more importantly quality photographer.

If your looking to have pictures done whether it's wedding pics, family pics and any other occasion these guys are the best around, true professionalism is hard to find but I would say Ag-studio Margate has it down packed! They photographed my wedding day and I couldn't be happier with the results :-)
