My team and I here at The Sharnbrook Hotel always receive excellent feedback from couples that have used Abraxas Photography's services. With preparatory meetings ahead of their event and their attentive and unobtrusive style on the wedding day is to be commended, especially when you see the results in the couple's photo albums. Abraxas Photography continue to be our photographers of choice.”

As an Event Manger I look to work with creative, professional and passionate people. Kam at Abraxas fits the bill 100% and manages to exceed all of mine and my client expectations every time. His work is amazing, capturing the feel and the buzz of a wedding in his work. Always going the extra mile and making everyone he works with feel relaxed and confident they have the right person in the driving seat but without ever being intrusive on such an intimate occasion. Kam delivers modern yet timeless pieces to treasure and I feel this is the key to perfect wedding photography.
Sarah Barge - Event's Co-Ordinator
I regard Abraxas Photography to be one of the most professional and dynamic wedding and essential photography experts and it is important for us to be associated with them as their high standards of service and customer commitment compliment our own.
It is a pleasure to work with Kam and the team on a regular basis and we look forward to an ongoing, fruitful business relationship with them. Many of our brides, especially my sister Anna, have opted for Abraxas Photography, infact she even changed her wedding date to suit their availability!
The most important thing as a venue is that we can rely on them knowing that our customers are looked after.
Ciro Ciampi - Hotel, Banquet and Conference Manager, The Sharnbrook Hotel
Whenever a bride asks me about a photographer I will immediately recommend Kam. Why? Because he's experienced, fast, efficient, knows exactly what to do in difficult situations, reliable, always does such a good job and most important for me, he is incredibly easy to work with.
If you are thinking about using Kam for your wedding photos I can assure you that from my experience of working with wedding photographers, I'd be surprised if you find anyone who comes even close to the quality of what he can do for you.
Simon Tiller, Ultimate Visuals
As a wedding coordinator at one of the most prestigious 4 star establishments in the area it is essential I have confidence in suppliers. I can whole heartedly say that Kam at Abraxas Photography is innovative, inspiring and totally professional at all times. The end result is always an impressive collection of pictures and that's why I used them for my own wedding.
I hold Abraxas Photography in the highest regard and have no hesitation in recommending them to brides and grooms and for being the recommended photographers at The Bedford Swan Hotel.
Rachel Harris - Wedding Coordinator, The Bedford Swan Hotel
Woodland Manor have always been very impressed with the services of Abraxas Photography. From a venue's point of view, Kam is very easy to work with, particularly for weddings as he is helpful, and is not intrusive in any way.
Dena Green - Events Co-ordinator, Woodland Manor Hotel
Honest, reliable and professional!
Caroline Trichet - General Manager, The Barns Hotel, Bedford
In April 2013 we produced a very special exhibition ‘A Vintage Soiree’ where 50 of our 2012 brides were featured in a ‘Black and White’ style inspired by icons such as Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren. The exhibition was viewed by over 1000 people. Here are a very few of the written feedback comments we received on the Private View Evening held at The Sharnbrook Hotel on 16th April 2013.
Absolutely stunning - you are a true artist! Makes me want to get married again.
Su Quinn - SuQu Designs
I would expect no other from you Kam, the exhibition was outstanding every photograph was second to none.
Absolutely stunning pictures ! The display is brilliant! I think you can safely say it was a great success!
To all the team at Abraxas Photography - A perfect exhibition! I'd expect nothing less. This is yet another example of why you were chosen to photograph our special day!

Myself and my family think my portrait is fantastic! This evening has been a complete success you deserve it.
