What a magnificent chronological picture story of our special day, our pictures were amazing!
Addison you captured every moment starting with the events before the actual ceremony in the hotel room, to the softly rose lit marquee in the evening. Your attention to detail was breathtaking, all the small things that we might have otherwise forgotten, you captured. Addison your calm tone yet quirky sense of humour put us at complete ease. We have had so many positive comments from our family and friends about our wedding pictures, they are simply beautiful!
It was an impossible task to pick the agreed number of prints for our album as they were all lovely. We are so glad that we chose you as our photographer for the day and we would highly recommend you to anyone.
Thank you Addison!

Thank you so very much for the pictures you took for our wedding this summer. I admit to being a little nervous initally, because of the unconventional approach we as a couple choose to take e.g. opting for avoiding the formal route (having everyone pose for pictures while preparing for the day's events) and the limited amount of space we had in our hotel rooms for you to maneuver etc. But you did an absolutely marvelous job of capturing the true feel, the innate joy, and humanity of it all. I've looked at the pictures dozens of times, and I still catch a tear in my eye as I look fondly on the story being told therein.
The pictures you captured of our preparing, as well as the pictures you took during the ceremony and afterwards were phenomenal. I was so focused on my husband, frankly I don't even recall seeing you get close enough to take any pictures while we were taking our vows - you were a ghost! But you captured so much! I recall being surprised and thinking "How'd he get so close without my noticing"?! From the intimate expressions we displayed, the exchange of rings, to the personal moments we shared when we thought we were alone.. and then the absolutely stunning sunset pictures you captured prior to the reception. You captured it all... literally.. .and as I write this, I still get goosebumps of joy.
My only wish is that I could have afforded to you to stay for the entire night to capture all of the reception - because things got crazy between the families, but in the most delightful way!
You were incredibly patient with me and my family, and knew precisely which pictures to take, and managed to capture our personalities succinctly. You captured the spirit of the day in a completely unscripted way - which was precisely what I wanted. I would recommend you without reservation.
"Good morning Addison, thanks for sending us through the photos. We can't express enough just how much we love them, they are all stunning - you are clearly a magician!!"

My husband and I were very specific about the type of photographer we wanted to capture our wedding day, particularly as we were not having an official videographer, and the still pictures would be very important.
We agreed to ask around about good professionals, and Addison was recommended to us wholeheartedly by someone whose wedding he had photographed. Having met with and interacted with other photographers, Addison was like a breath of fresh air to us. He was personable, down to earth and though direct when offering his professional advice, was very accommodating of any requests or questions we had. Though the package we opted for was time specific we felt that he would take time to get the shots that were necessary. When he left after our initial meeting, we said, “He’s the one!”
Addison did not disappoint when we were taking our engagement photo or on our wedding day. He was punctual and very professional. As we did not want to keep our guests waiting on the big day, timelines were very important to us for the family photos between the service and the reception, a fact of which Addison was aware. We felt like he really respected our wishes and tried to work with us, and the photos took one hour exactly- that was impressive as we both have large families! He was even mentioned in my husband’s speech for his sense of humour and professionalism.
Even after the wedding he worked with us in terms of getting the photos as quickly as possible and made suggestions where he saw necessary. We highly recommend Addison Cumberbatch as a photographer for any occasion, and I know our sentiments are shared by others who used him for their weddings and gave us two thumbs way up when they heard that we had also engaged his services.

Dear Mr. Cumberbatch,
My wife and I would like to thank you for your time and expertise capturing one of the most special moments in our lives.
When my wife and I decided to get married in Barbados at the Crane resort we were instantly preoccupied with the logistics of having our event in a country where we had never been and where we knew no one. Thanks to our wedding coordinator at the Crane much of this burden was lifted but we remained somewhat cautious about which photographer to choose having been presented with a myriad of options.
We did extensive research on available professional photographers on the island, considered flying our own photographer in from our home town or from another island and viewed/reviewed well over 50 wedding portfolios and thousands of photos.
When the dust settled there was only one portfolio that truly stood out from the rest and both my wife and I were in agreement that we would entrust you with capturing the photos of our special day for all of our friends and family who were unable to make the trip and for future memories.
You were very well equipped, professional, courteous, knowledgeable and sensitive to the fact that this was not a photo shoot but an event shared with our friends and family who themselves wanted to take pictures on their digital cameras as well. We appreciated your skills, expertise and experience throughout, and your recommendations for poses. We also appreciated how discrete you were as you blended in to our reception to capture our friends and family enjoying our wedding party. And finally your patience was second to none and not once did we feel pressured for time other than to beat the sunset as our outdoor ceremony came to a close and we toured the resort grounds looking for the best places to take our pictures before the sun settled.
Once all was said and done we were extremely surprised to see how quickly you were able to turnaround and deliver our set of printed photos in an album along with the digital prints on a CD. We were skeptical and were convinced we would have to wait and receive these by mail after returning home but you delivered within just days.
And how about the photos? Beautiful! Every single one. Our family and friends and other professional and amateur photographers have all commented on how great our photos are and it would not be exaggerated to say they are magazine-grade quality.
My wife and I are extremely satisfied with your work and services and would recommend you to any other couples seeking a professional wedding photographer with a refined eye!
Thank you once again and we wish you continued success in your profession.
Shawnee and JJ.

For me, one of the most treasured aspects of a wedding are its photographs - the most important day in my life yet the day which went by the fastest! Photos are some of the few remaining physical pieces which tell the timeless story of our day of love. It is easy to understand then, why it was imperative to have not only an exceptional and reliable photographer, but one who was very talented, extremely patient (we all know how emotions fly on that day!) and ready and willing to please. Addison was amazing. I had many meltdowns that day and he remained calm and understanding while making sure that "emotions" did not get in the way of priceless photo moments. After a rather long, very hot and action packed day, he was more than willing to stay hours after the time we had agreed just to ensure we captured as many memories as possible and more! I was very impressed with how calm and composed he remained throughout the crazy day and how eager he was to please :) Addison's work is brilliant...one only has to take a look to see just what i mean. We could not have chosen anyone better and were blessed to have not only "Skills", but a beautiful personality and someone who was very easy and accommodating to work with. Thank you so much Addison for the exceptional work done at our wedding....our photos will live to tell :) Katrina and Jaiye Ladipo...Cheers!
