It is with much enthusiasm we write this testimonial for Love is Love Photography. We were lucky to meet Harry during the Marriage Equity Campaign and were very impressed with his eye for detail and arranged to get some shots done.
Harry creates an environment where we were so relaxed & confident in what was being done we naturally opened up, which led to some brilliantly creative photos. Love is Love photography totally exceeded our expectations so much on all levels, we don’t trust anyone else to capture our special moments.

We cannot more highly recommend Harry from Love is Love Photography!
Harry was an absolute pleasure to deal with, from our very first meeting where he shared some of his past portfolios, right through the entire journey, he was professional, friendly, engaging, never rushed, and above all took a real pride in every aspect of his work.
On the day of our wedding, he arrived early, made us feel comfortable, engaged with our guests so well, was always subtly present for the important shots, and stayed throughout the entire wedding and reception to ensure he didn't miss a single important moment. We then had a photo shoot several days later where he had excellent ideas of locations and compositions, and again took all the time he needed to be satisfied he had all the best shots.
The quality of his work, both technically and creatively, was absolutely superb! Harry sent us digital copies of selected images the morning after our wedding, so we were immediately able to share the with family and friends. The rest of the images he processed quickly, and gave us total access to all the raw image files for our own use.
Then finally, the album he produced and had printed was of outstanding quality.
If you are looking for a photographer for your same sex wedding, do yourself a favour and give Harry a call!

We couldn't have asked more of Harry from Love is Love Photography. From first meeting to our wedding day. He was simply brilliant to work with. We gave him our brief for our wedding and he delivered above and beyond our expectations.
We married on August 4 2018 and the next day he had delivered a sample of photo's of the day. We were very impressed and were excited to see the rest of the photos. The album he created was more than we expected.
Family and friends have commented on how professional and easy going Harry was. He blended into the reception and took some brilliant candid shots, before and during the wedding.
Harry is very professional and delivered on what we asked. We would highly recommend Harry and Love is Love Photography if you want a professional photographer and amazing results. The memories of the day will never fade as the end result was simply BRILLIANT. Thank you Harry for recording our special day so well.

I have had the pleasure to work with Harry on numerous occasions at LGBTI weddings where I have been the celebrant, and have had opportunities to form views about him and his work. The couples who have engaged Harry have, without exception, been thrilled by the photographs he has produced.
Harry works respectfully with LGBTI people and prides himself on the depth of the relationships he develops with his clients. He works unobtrusively and cooperates beautifully and effectively with other wedding suppliers such as venues, videographers and car providers.
Harry often goes over and beyond what is expected by his LGBTI clients - he offers additional wedding shoots before or after the ceremony and it’s not unusual for him to spend more than 12 hours shooting on any one wedding day. As a gay celebrant, I value the way in which Harry understands the LGBTI couples I marry, and I get a thrill when I hear from Harry that he’s caught up with these couples long after their wedding day. I highly recommend his services.

Center Stage in the City that Never Sleeps
Central Park and Times Square were ideal backdrops for myself, a ranger at the Statue of Liberty and my husband, Jorge, an actor. Harry transported us onto his magical photographic STAGE. We will never forget our time in his spotlight. Harry is a lovable and talented artist and perfectly captured the true love Jorge and I share for one another and NEW YORK CITY, our hometown. We never felt pressure to perform. When Harry suggested climbing a tree while wearing a suit, we both simply took his direction. No second thoughts at all. Harry is that great! The resulting images are spellbinding.
Every location and shot was fun, felt natural and the resulting photographs are SHOWSTOPPERS. Central Park and Times Square were crowded with tourists and theatergoers and traffic, but Harry was focused on the two of us. Our experience was as if we were taking our CURTAIN CALL on OPENING NIGHT in front of the world. Please consider this brief note our TONY AWARD to Harry! BRAVO!

I’ve been performing as Dolly Diamond for quite sometime, so I’m very specific when it comes to what I want with photographs.
Harry was fantastic with the brief and I absolutely love the photos we did together. I say together because it’s a collaborative effort when it comes to getting photos done.
I recently used 2 of the photos from the shoot we did as promo for some shows at the Spiegeltent in Ringwood, they represent my character, my work...so they need to be good...
& they definitely are.

It is our very great pleasure to absolutely recommend without prejudice the services of delightful Harry from Love Is Love Photography to anyone who is looking for brilliant, vibrant, unique and surprising pictures that really capture the heart, soul and excitement of your wonderful special wedding day.
A truly kind, generous and gentle soul, Harry’s authentically affable nature gives him the gift of being able to put people off their guard, so that they feel instantly relaxed and comfortable around him, resulting in wonderfully candid and viscerally natural photos that really reveal character and capture emotion. Even the official portrait and wedding party shots retain a lightness of touch and energy that prevent them from feeling too stuffy or overly staged in their formality. Plus Harry has such a wonderful natural, intelligent eye for composition, frame, and light, it ensures that each and every photo is a keeper, capturing something truly special in terms of a unique memory, faces or happening from the overwhelming maelstrom that is everyone’s wedding day.
It is so easy to miss so much when you are at the centre of all that activity, noise and attention, but looking back with Harry’s beautiful, rich, detailed photos, you really are suddenly back in the thrall of it all, reveling and reliving your favourite moments and catching up on any you missed.
The Love Is Love Photography wedding packages also represent really great value for money. Harry is incredibly generous of himself, especially with his expertise and time, always ready to go the extra mile to work with you and be flexible in doing whatever it takes to deliver what you want. As a result, not only is Harry very competitively priced against other wedding photographers, but the packages offered are so jam-packed with uniquely additional value that there really is no comparison.
Working as light as he does (just himself; no entourage of photographer’s assistants), enables Harry to function as a virtual Nikon Ninja – fast, efficient, unobtrusive, able to get around quickly and into all corners, nooks and crannies of your event without disturbing anyone or compromising the comfort and mood of your guests or the quality of the event atmosphere; this in turn thus maximises his ability to capture as vast an array as possible of unselfconscious faces, characters, interactions and moments.
Coming from someone who is usually extremely uncomfortable with having their photo taken, that is quite a feat. Taken altogether, the end result is a truly exciting, revealing, beautiful photographic time capsule compendium of your wedding and reception that you will be proud to own and display, and which is guaranteed to give you years and years of pleasure.
Harry was such a positive presence at our wedding and reception. So many of our family and friends who attended the event have since gone out of their way to comment on how nice and fantastic Harry was, and what a pleasure he was to have around, which I think is extraordinary for an event photographer.
We really couldn’t be more grateful to Harry for everything that he did for and brought to the atmosphere of our event, not to mention the treasure trove of magnificent photos and the glorious photo books he delivered to us afterwards.

My husband and I engaged Harry to be our photographer for our surprise wedding in February 2018. Harry’s professionalism and wonderful personality put us immediately at ease. All our wedding guests commented afterward at how engaging and friendly Harry was.
The first images that Harry showed us brought us to tears. His work was truly spectacular and way beyond anything we could have imagined. We are thankful Harry also convinced us to do another photo shoot on the beach, with magical results. An expert at what he does.
We will forever be grateful for the life long memories Harry created for us”

My husband and I booked Harry for a photo session in New York City past September. I have been following Harry on social media for quite a while and I absolutely fell in love with the photos he was posting. It was a dream of mine to get a chance to work with him. I was so thrilled when the chance to work with him came up!
I am much more comfortable behind the camera than I am being in front of it but Harry put both of us at ease. He was a joy to work with! He was very easy going and friendly and we felt an instant bond with him. He found great locations in Times Square and Central Park for the photoshoot and he was really good at getting us in the right position to get the shot right. We loved the photos that Harry provided us after the shoot.
Everything about working with Harry was absolutely top notch. I would love to do another photoshoot with him in the future. He exceeded my expectations in every way and I highly recommend him

We are so happy with both our pre-wedding and wedding day photos. The quality of the superb albums and cases are simply outstanding and we can't thank him enough for providing us with such beautiful memories of that special day in our lives.
We would without doubt recommend Harry's quality photography services to our friends and family as so many people have said, what wonderful work he does.

Harry is an exceptional photographer. Exceptional because he not only takes beautiful pictures, he captures the essence of relationships with the use of a lens.
In our case, not only did he manage to capture a relationship of over 23 years, he also managed to wrangle the magic our two-year-old toddler adds to the dynamic.
Throughout the entire session, Harry was warm, enthusiastic and simply a joy. We could not possibly recommend him more highly.

It was an absolute pleasure of ours to be photographed by you at few of Toronto's well know locales.
You are an amazing photographer and can we just say 'wow'. The pictures are stunning! Even though miles away, we may just hire you as our wedding photographer.
You have a passion for photography. Please keep up the good work, especially for the LGBT community. We all deserve to feel special and with your pictures, you helped us achieve that.

We came across Love is Love Photography on Instagram and had to contact Harry for info because we couldn't stop looking at his photos.
We had a very friendly talk with Harry before the shoot for a bit, so it was no wonder that we didn't feel shy or uncomfortable around Harry for photos and there wasn't any moment that we felt awkward posing for photos because everything was so natural and candid.
We enjoyed our time with Harry during the shoot and loved his friendly personality. The end result was truly amazing!
We definitely recommend Harry to capture the beautiful moments in your life.
love and regards,

We came across Love is Love photography as we followed each other on Instagram and were inspired by Harry's clearly professional and passionate work.
After discussing our upcoming visit to Melbourne, we organised a sunrise photoshoot - our first ever so we definitely didn't know what to expect and were a little nervous. However we need not have worried. Within a few minutes, all our anxieties and awkwardness were put to ease.
We normally don't show much affection in public, but with Harry's guidance from behind the camera, it seemed to come naturally. He knew exactly how to capture the moment in a truly natural way and nothing seemed forced with him.
We visited several locations to take photos and soon loved the experience. The photos we received afterwards totally exceeded our expectations too.
Would we recommend @loveislovephotography ? The answer would be resounding YES! We feel like we've also made a lifelong friend in the process.
Keep up the great work, Harry!

Thank you for making our first ever couple photo shoot such a fun and relaxed experience. On top that, we are completely in love with our final images. They capture the special bond between us and remind us of our special time in Melbourne, Australia.
The whole experience was delightful and we are glad to call Harry a close friend whom we'd like to cross paths again.
