Testimonials

 

• I absolutely hate being photographed. Nina not only made the whole experience fun, but produced one of the wittiest and best portraits of me that has ever been taken. A photographer who really knows how to do it.

- Jacky Colliss Harvey, writer

 

• Nina's relaxed style, sense of humour and her genuine drive to achieve the best photos possible bring us back over and over again for family photo shoots.

- Elena Voloschuk

 

• I have just done a one to one set of tutorials with Nina, every session was fun, the time flew.  Nina taught me so much technically, to look at things differently and put a sparkle into my photos.  I feel privileged to have been able to spend time with such a talented, experienced photographer as Nina.

• We would hire Nina again in a heartbeat! She photographed our wedding in 2016 and did an incredible job! Funny, warm, strict (which is needed when trying to direct 100 wedding guests into group photos!), relaxed and bubbly. She made everyone (including myself and my husband) feel at ease in front of the camera and captured some beautiful photographs of both us and our guests! Our wedding album is the perfect memory of our special day!

• I have used Nina Dodd's photography services both in commercial and personal contexts. She has an incredible ability to make people shine as individuals. I used to hate having my photograph taken as I felt that no one could take good enough photos of me. Nina managed to make me relax and bring out such joy that I have actually learned to enjoy being photographed. She is truly gifted.

• Nina photographed our wedding in 2004 and since then we have been coming for shoots - since 2009 actually once every year. Nina's photos are full of joie de vivre and she really finds the most flattering angles of each person. Nina has such a charming persona that she will get anyone to relax - no matter what age. We couldn't imagine having anyone else take our photos.

- Iris Lagerstöm

 

• For our son's wedding we needed a photographer that could accomodate unusual requests and interact well with some quite difficult guests. We weren't disappointed! Nina made time to meet with the bride and groom beforehand and visit the church and the reception venue in Minehead. On the big day she worked tiredlessly with a very early start for bride's hair and make-up right through to the last dance! Nina made everyone smile and feel at ease, even the grumpy and the retiring! Her forte was her unobtrusive presence, you simply forgot the camera was there. The result: the most magical, natural and inspired wedding photos I've seen in a long time.

- Melanie Reaney

 

• It is nice to do shoots with Nina! She has an ability to make both adults and children smile and relax in the photos and she understands how to interact with different kinds of people. I have used Nina's services both in personal and commercial photo shoots.

• Nina photographed our wedding day capturing the pure essence and enjoyment of our special day. I still wonder how she achieved such perfection, when I hardly noticed her all day. She was professional from first meeting right through to delivery of our precious moments. I highly recommend Nina Dodd Photography.

- Anne Martin

 

• Nina was a positive and encouraging photographer who created a relaxed atmosphere for the shoot. She listened to the client's wishes and - when needed - helped to guide in the right direction. Good vibes.

• Nina photographed our wedding in Kirchensittenbach, Germany with true professionalism. She managed to capture the overall feel and the details of the wedding brilliantly. The bridal portraits taken with several different backgrounds were exactly what we wanted. Nina was actually on several occasions crawling down on the ground in order to capture the right angle and light! You don't need to feel shy in Nina's company either. Even the intimate getting ready shots of both the bride and groom were great. Trust me - she really knows how to make you relax. Motivating and moving large groups of people around was no problem for her either. Our German and Finnish guests enjoyed having their photos taken due to Nina's positivity and her sense of humour. Thank you, Nina - because of you we have photos that will always remind us of our big day.
