Vicki & Rony {wedding 2016}

160526_rony-vicki_ria-mishaal-photography_802

For me, the wedding planning process was a jam-packed list full of decision making… something which is not my forte at the best of times! When it came to picking a wedding photographer, there seemed like so many great options and styles – it was quite overwhelming. However, choosing Ria & Jake to capture our special day was one of the best wedding decisions we made!

My life always feels hectic, yet from the initial phone call with Ria, her sense of calm won me over. Her warmth at the pre-wedding meeting made me feel super comfortable about something which I was dreading – I hate having my picture taken! On the day, Jake and Ria fit in seamlessly – they simply became an extension of the wedding party and slipped into the background to capture the important moments while managing all of the more formal portraits like the pros they are.

So extremely talented – the feedback from our pictures has been overwhelming – I love, love, love them – and so do all of our friends and family. I couldn’t recommend them higher! Thank you both so much x

– Vicki

Dear Ria,

The beautiful package arrived this morning.

First of all, we would like to thank you for taking part in this special event of our lives together. Thank you for taking so many beautiful photos on the day, a record of the places, numerous familiar and smiley faces, moments of friends sharing and laughing together. We love the photos of ourselves as much as the photos of the groups and individuals. These photos will help us to keep a wonderful memory in our lives. Thank you.

Secondly, we would like to thank you for being so caring, helpful and creative in producing a beautiful collection of our wedding photos. Thank you for the hard work on such cold winter day. We will always remember your excitement of the puddle of water you’ve found. The reflection from the puddle no only reflects an image of us but also reflects your professional skills and talent.

We feel very grateful and blessed to have such wonderful memories to last a life time. A big THANK YOU once again.

We hope you’ve enjoyed a few moments during the time you spent with us and have produced something that you loved and enjoyed.

With our best wishes always.

– Henry & Siu Ki

160709_jess-david_ria-mishaal-photography_800-2

Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding photos! We couldn’t be more delighted.

David and I were very close to not getting a professional photographer for our wedding as we had preconceptions about this involving lots of posed, staged photos. We couldn’t of been more wrong!

What we love about your approach is the way you’re able to capture the feelings and energy that surround particular moments so naturally and as they happen. We feel so lucky to have such a detailed documentation of our day which we can look back on in years to come and relive all those memories and emotions.

Thank you so so much for first the Premiere which was such a wonderful surprise and brought the day right back to us and then for all the absolutely incredible photographs of the day. Dory and I stayed up late last night looking at them all and reminiscing over the whole day. I am so so glad we were able to have you as our photographer.

Both you and Jake were absolutely amazing and the pictures are just stunning and capture the all the happiness of the day and everyone there sharing it with us. I love too that there are so many of  those little details that we might have forgotten over time but which seeing them again helps conjure the day up again. The pictures of Dory and i are just wonderful. I almost can’t believe it’s us and then at the same time can see who we are shining through.

Thank you so so much! I have no idea how we are going to be able to narrow our choices down for the album there’s so many pictures that we loved i can see it’s going to be a hard process of elimination but i also can’t wait to have the album once it’s all done!

Thank you again for all your hard work, stunning photography and most for all the memories you brought back.

We honestly can not thank you and Jake enough, you were both brilliant and so so helpful. Put us right at ease and helped keep things so streamlined. We loved that you could be there with us on our special day and capture it all.

Dear Ria, Thank you for being with us for those 2 days that meant so much to us! It was a real pleasure to have you with us – and you got quite a few compliments about your subtleness and “unintrusiveness”. I know from personal experience how difficult that is to achieve…

We just spend the last hour looking at all your photos and are absolutely overwhelmed. And also quite emotional. I had tears in my eyes on several occasions. You captured so many special moments in amazingly beautiful ways, with such a great eye for detail and skill for composition – both I admire deeply. I knew when I saw your webpage that your style is exactly what we like and yet you managed to totally exceed our expectations. There are so many gems.

Dear Ria, Thank you so much for sharing these with us, and so quickly. They are beautiful. I love the light – simply stunning!

You and Jake did such an amazing job. Everyone commented on how lovely, polite and unobtrusive you both were. We had the most amazing sunny day with all of our loved ones – we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day.

Thank you for helping me keep calm prior to the ceremony and for helping me fix the various bits and bobs onto my bouquet. It was very reassuring to have you there. Thank you also for taking the time and care to ensure that we got through all the group photos. I can’t imagine it’s easy herding everyone together!It was lovely to spend some time together during the portrait session and we really enjoyed our ride to the lake as the sun was setting. It was really special to have those private moments together.

Thank you so much again for everything. You were both absolutely wonderful. All our love,  Anneliese & Will

We cannot thank you enough for being such a wonderful aspect of our day – the photos made me quite emotional and Alex and I were taken back to that day with the images you sent. Just amazing. They evoke all the emotions we felt on the day, something which you captured so perfectly. They also compliment our little story from our shoot in Regent’s Park in December.

Alex and I watched the preview together with big smiles on our faces. It looks just as good as how it felt on the day, such amazing candid moments of all our friends… Amazing! We are totally in love with them. And the blog…wow!! Speechless! We don’t like it….we LOVE it. you were so kind with your words, and you summed up the day so eloquently. Magical!!

Wow, wow and wow again! Ria, these are so, so beautiful…

Dave and I would like to say such a huge thank you to both you and Jake for all you have done for us both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. When we first got engaged we both agreed that we wanted beautiful photographs that would capture wonderful memories that we could look at for years to come – you have so beautifully managed to achieve this. From the first time we spoke on the phone I had full confidence your innate talent. It was lovely to have you both share in our special day, and it honestly felt like there were two friends in the room rather than contracted photographers. We have had so many comments from our guests about how at ease you made them feel, even from the most camera shy! You truly have provided us the most wonderful photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives – for that we will be forever grateful!

All our love,

Jo and Dave

Hello Ria,

We finally had time to sit down and properly look through the photos the other night with a glass of wine. We are so happy with them – thank you ever so much.

The light is so beautiful, and there is a lovely mixture of natural and artistic shots. These are absolutely gorgeous. They really made our day!

Hi Ria,

Just wanted to also say a huge huge thank you! The pictures are absolutely stunning!!!!! I will admit that i was a bit nervous as i don’t often see pictures of myself that i like and even less ones where we both look good but you made us look great whilst still capturing us as we are! The colours are so rich and vibrant i’m so glad we went to Westonbirt when we did! Still can’t decide which ones to print but think there’s going to be quite a few. Really really excited about having you photograph our wedding.

Thank you so much!

Ellie

PS i also really liked the collection you choose for your blog. I like how they tell a story and all come together as a body of work! It really demonstrates why the albums work so well.

Hi Ria,

We are beyond thrilled with the photos! You are both so talented! The photos are amazing and you have so perfectly captured the day. I have spent hours poring over the photos and catch myself beaming at the memories of the day. We love all the little details too. You even managed to get a photo of a plane flying past! So many people have said they are the best wedding photos they have seen which is quite a compliment.

Thank you again so much for such a perfect record of the best day of our lives!

Love,

Dear Ria and Jake,

Thank you so much for capturing our special day – we are so pleased with the photos! Family and friends have all raved about them and our toughest job has been editing them down to put in frames around the house and send to family.

We absolutely loved working with you both – from our initial meeting at our engagement session in Richmond park to the wedding day itself. Your positive, calm energy helped us relax  and really appreciate every moment. You work as a great team and we’re so happy to have photos of us both getting ready separately and from 2 angles during the ceremony and celebrations.

Wishing you both all the very best for the future,

Lots of love,

Hannah and Olly

ria-mishaal-testimonials-24

We are so pleased with the images. As we had unreasonably come to expect from you, they are far beyond what we could have hoped for! We have sent the link to our parents and they are thrilled too.

And thanks so much for your superhuman effort on the day and your good humour while we were being paraded around etc! The formal shots have come out great too. I really like the setting.

– Matt

Words can’t express how we feel about the photos…they are, well, perfect!  First and foremost they capture the day so completely; from the venue, the little details including signs, flowers, shoes, jewellery, hats, to all our friends and families, and the different parts of the day.  But they are so much more than that.  They are artistic and timeless, often comical and always moving, capturing the mood of a moment I didn’t think was possible through a lens.

As a person, you have such a calming and special presence about you, and you were the perfect addition to the bridal preparations, even helping out when disaster struck (bronzer on wedding dress saga, for instance!) but in a very subtle and un-dominating way.  It really helped that we had done the engagement shoot beforehand so I felt I knew you and you were just one of the girls!  Jake was also wonderful – so smiley! – and the way you worked together was like a very professional, effective and in love team!

So many people have said they are honestly the most beautiful wedding photos they have ever seen.  I couldn’t agree more!  I will be recommending your services to any engaged couple I come across.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful photos!

Thank you so much for sending through the premiere and full gallery so quickly. We absolutely LOVE them! Words can’t express how happy we are – not only did you capture all the tiny details that we loved about our day, but also everything that we had no idea was going on! The smiles, laughter, conversation between old friends and new. Seeing your photos was like reliving the experience all over again and we can’t thank you enough for giving us such beautiful images of our day. You really have such a talent, the photos we’ve seen so far are exquisite.

We also wanted to say thank you so much to you and Jake for everything on the day itself. You were both such calming influences and we heard lots of positive comments about you both from our guests. It was lovely to share our day with you both.

Andrew & Jessica {wedding 2012}

ria-mishaal-testimonials-16

Dearest Ria & Jake,

I don’t really know where to begin. We were so thrilled, first with the three taster portraits you so kindly sent before we left for our honeymoon (only 36 hours after the wedding!), and then again with the preview on the blog, but we cannot tell you how happy you have made us with our full wedding album. The images are just stunning. Not a guest, nor a detail was left undocumented, and practically every shot is a wall-worthy image – I’ve no idea how we’ll choose only 100 of these to fill our album!

We knew we wanted to approach you about our wedding photography having in fact seen only one of your images, in the signing board at Rachel and Henry’s wedding. We witnessed you ‘at work’ at their wedding, and both commented on how unobtrusive you were, yet simultaneously everywhere, capturing every moment. From our very first conversation over the phone, you have been singularly lovely: professional yet warm, accommodating without compromising your identity as an artist, and most importantly, somebody in whom we had absolute faith to document our big day, and to tell our story in a beautiful yet uncontrived way.

Thank you doesn’t really seem to cover it, since we will be forever grateful for the memories you have preserved for us through your photos, but I hope that these words will at least convey some of our sincere gratitude to you for all that you have done for us over the past 21 months. You have gone well above and beyond any contractual obligations, always with a willing heart and exceeding our expectations at every opportunity. It has been a pleasure working with you all this time, but also getting to know you, and coming to think of you as friends.

So many of our guests have commented on the way you work, your lovely manner, and the things you’ve been responsible for, and of course, on the quality of your photos. As the bride and groom, we found that your presence on the day was one of both calm and fun – we so enjoyed your company, as ever, and we very much hope,to continue to get to know you better in the future.

As I said to you over the phone, Ria, I greatly admire your courage in turning your talent and passion into a career. We’ve no doubt that you will go on to do very great things…

With our love and thanks, Jess & Andy x

ria-mishaal-testimonials-15

Dearest Ria,

Adam and I have now returned from honeymoon and are settling in to married life, which I have to say is wonderful.

A letter and card will follow but I wanted to write to say how delighted we are with our wedding portraits.  They are everything we could wish for.  Words cannot convey how beautifully you have captured the day.  Your attention to detail is exceptional. Not only are the images a joy to view,  Adam and I re-live the day every time we view them, a gift we will treasure for years to come.

Not only was it a joy to have you photograph our wedding, it was a joy to have you both at our wedding.  You were so incredibly in control, calm and discreet you made the whole process effortless, fun and enjoyable for us and our guests and it was just wonderful to have you around.

I am so incredibly grateful to Babington House for recommending you. I knew from the moment we first spoke that I wanted you to photograph our wedding. Your help and assistance from the outset has been exceptional and we really appreciated your advice and guidance throughout the whole process, not forgetting the equally beautiful engagement shots which were as considered and thoughtful.

The response to the photographs from our guests has been overwhelming. Many of whom would like prints.

You are truly talented photographers and a wonderful team.  I hope we have many more occasions to see you both in the future.

Dear Ria, I just wanted to say what a fabulous job you did at my daughters wedding at South Farm. You both were so un-intrusive, but managed to be everywhere and capture far more than the wedding, you managed to immortalise the whole day, from the preparations to the close,-  and capture the atmosphere of what was an amazing day. We all loved your ‘slide show’ so much. What clever and original artists you both are! Yours As Ever, Eric (Claire’s father)

Dear Ria and Jake,

Kyle and I have just sat and looked at all of your photographs and we are truly blown away by them. If I saw these photos in a magazine I would have torn them out and kept them, thinking this is what I would wish my wedding to look like.

You both are so incredibly talented and gentle in your approach… the fly on the wall feeling captures the magic and the people and moments so perfectly – your attention to detail and the feeling of nature surrounding us in the field. You have given us everything and so much more than we could have ever dreamt of having for our photos. We will have these forever and will always look at them and feel the love that surrounded us on our day.

We cannot thank you enough, truly from the bottom of our hearts … your work is just so beautiful. Thanks again for bringing your such unique eyes and creative hearts to our special day.

All our love, Kyle and Kelly xx

Stephanie & Tom {wedding 2012}

ria-mishaal-testimonials-10

Hi Ria and Jake

I wanted to take the time to properly express how thrilled we are with your photos.  We’ve already looked through them all five times!   Each time we keep noticing things we didn’t see before.  I knew that you were going to take beautiful photos, but they have turned out even better than I had hoped.

As you know, the details of the day were really important to me, and I can’t believe how beautifully you’ve captured them all.  Lots of them I didn’t actually notice properly on the day, so it’s wonderful to have them all in the photos.  I love the combination of the detail shots with all the brilliant pictures of our friends and family.  The way that you’ve captured the emotions on people’s faces is amazing.  I’m especially pleased with the photos that you took of Jenny – our family have honestly never had so many lovely photos of her – dad cried when they saw them!

Last weekend we went back home and showed the photos to our families.  It was lovely sitting round together looking at them all – like re-living the day, and everyone absolutely loved them.

I also really want to thank you and Jake not just for the photos, but for being so supportive and kind to us on the day.  Tom had nothing but great things to say about Jake and really enjoyed him being with them in the morning – apparently Jake even tied Sudeep’s tie!  You were so thoughtful and reassuring to me, making me feel calm – especially when I was nervous in the morning – and I was really glad that you were there.

Thank you both for the stunning photos, and also for being such a lovely part of our wedding.

Best wishes,

Steph and Tom xx

Dear Ria,

Just when we both feeling a little post wedding blues along came your email to take us back to our wonderful day!

These images are truly wonderful and everything we wanted. They capture us, our friends and family just how we know and love them, we cannot thank you both enough.

You and Jake are special people with amazing talent, but beyond your photographs you made Pete and I feel relaxed and at ease, as though we had known you both for ages. We were overwhelmed with how you both helped out with the little things and never once asked for anything from us, leaving us to enjoy our day without a worry.

Even though I knew you would, you have noted every one of the personal touches we both worked so hard to create for the day. It was as though you knew all the little things that we would have wanted documented – again thank you so much, your dedication and tireless effort exceeded every expectation we had about wedding photography.

I am so glad that we found you, even though the wedding only lasts for one day, we will have our photos for forever, they not only show those who shared our day but also reflect the warmth, love and emotion that we all felt.

I wish you every success in the future, you will make many more couples as happy as we are.

All our love and best wishes, Amy and Pete

Dear Ria,

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work before, during and after our wedding in April. Words cannot describe how pleased we are with your photos and everyone who has seen them have been blown away by your work. On the day you and Jake were almost invisible but crucially there when we needed you. Many of our guests commented on how professional you both were on the day and you put everyone at ease. We had complete trust in you and your work and we knew the photos would be special, looking through them, they take us right back to the moment they were taken, as if we are there. They bring back so many wonderful, happy memories, I am not sure I can thank you enough!

We keep looking through the wonderful album you have created for us in amazement, it tells the story of the day, capturing so many special moments.

You have put in so much work, during the engagement shoot, spending time with us on the day and then creating our fabulous album, thank you so much.

Love, Matt & Caroline xx

We absolutely love them. Thank you soooooo much. !t was an absolute pleasure to have you with us on the day. All of our guests commented what a fantastic job you did making everyone feel comfortable so unobtrusively.

The service you provided before, during & after the wedding has been first class and we are so pleased we chose you to photograph our big day. The end results are stunning and we really couldn’t have asked for more.

Our lives have been hectic and crazy as ever and our wedding and the events surrounding it have gone by in a flash.  I just wanted to say that our day was amazing…really perfect, and far outweighed my expectations. Your images captured our day exactly how I was hoping they would.  They are absolutely stunning.

You have a real gift. I suppose you can learn the technical side of photography, but you have an intuitive nature that cannot be learned.

Everyone who has looked at the photos have said they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen…ok enough gushing! We just feel very lucky that we have such amazing images of our day.  And as the weeks have gone on, it has been such a joy to look at the images and remember our perfect day.

Love, Amy and David
