Firstly thank you and Russell very much for this opportunity. I am so glad I kept pushing my family to do this and thank you for rescheduling. It was so well worth it in the end.  Russell was so welcoming and has an awesome sense of humour. We all felt comfortable at the studio and had such a great atmosphere . Even the chicken made us feel welcome lol.  The photos came out beautiful and we all loved them. To be honest me and my partner look too young to have children in their twenties. Lol That's what I call quality and priceless.

I am one very very happy customer. 
Thanks - Kristene


Nikita and I attended the viewing yesterday and to say that we were both absolutely blown away by the photos produced, is an understatement. Melissa, you really captured a moment in time for us that embodied the sincerity and love between a doting father and his beautiful daughters.

As per discussions with Russell yesterday, I was nervous in anticipation mainly because we haven't got many photos of the four of us and was unsure how I was going to scrub up next to my beautiful girls. I know that this is all in a day's work for you guys, and my gratitude towards your professionalism and what you are able to achieve is very humbling. I did say to Russell yesterday that we may make a trip out to Coatesville, if time permits, to collect the photos and thank you personally with a cake.

From the girls and I, indebted always & thank you all again sincerely. Will be sure to make referrals on behalf of the Hamlet team.

Yours truly,

Just a quick note to say thanks a million for the photo shoot offer from you guys at Albany, we couldn't believe it and were really chuffed!

We went out there last Friday for our complimentary session and have to say we were totally blessed and blown away.   All the staff at Hamlet Photographywere super, really professional, friendly and considerate.   Actually mistakenly we arrived a week early for our appointment and since they saw we had gone to some trouble and expense for the session, they went to extra trouble to make it happen there and then.

We go for our viewing session next Tuesday which will be really exciting I think.   I have never seen myself look so good, ha ha.  I think Russell took some awesome shots of us.

Again thanks a million for this really cool gift, seriously we were really blessed by it.   I know we haven't seen you in ages, our current dog Billie is a 12 year old healthy robust little Besenji, Bull Terrier, Blue Heeler X who looked amazing in the photos by the way!

We continue to be loyal clients of Albany Vet Hospital, as you continue to be really good to us, as you were back in the days of Caleb, our adorably gentle Rhodesian Ridgeback, when we saw lots of you.   So thanks again Grant, hope all is going really well with you. Hopefully we may be able to send you a copy of the best shot.

 cheers :-)"

Amazing. The service was out standing from start to finish. The photo session was amazing and Russell worked wonders with my son and dog. The photos that he captured are amazing. They are by far the best photos that I have ever had done. I would not be surprised if some of them become award winners. I would recommend Russell to anyone..

Thank you to the Team at Hamlet Photography, I had the joy of having photos taken when my Daughter and Granddaughters were home from Australia , just prior to Christmas. Even though it was whistle stop visit from my Daughter , Russell, Sal and Sarah did a wonderful job of firstly making the little ones feel at ease, taking beautiful photos and then ensuring they were ready for me to take to Australia as presents for Christmas. I feel so lucky to have found Hamlet Photography and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. In fact this is the second time I have been lucky enough to have photos taken by them. A joy, and a treasure to keep our Memories alive.
Thank you all so much

I just wanted to say thank you and your team for the great work you all did on our family portrait.  Ewen was awesome with our boys, and made us all feel really comfortable and kept it all really fun and interesting.   Also without Russell’s input I would have found it very difficult to choose the best shot, and Amanda and I are really happy with the portrait that we have got.

This was a real treat for us, and it is not something that was currently in our budget. Also – I did not know how much work it takes to produce pictures like the ones you do.

We really appreciate the time and effort from everyone involved, and also being flexible in being able to work around our schedule.  

Please pass on our thanks to Russell, Ewen and the team.
