    How many ways can you say really good?! The photos are amazing and well above our expectations. Serendipity never runs out of ideas and worked so hard to create the ultimate creative product. The photos in the album have really been taken to a new level, technically superb, perfectly controlled with state of the art photoshop skills.

    As a keen photographer, I can really appreciate mastery of the craft. Serendipity pushed the shooting and post production to the limit. It’s rare to see photography with multi flash setup with umbrellas and the use of many prime lenses. The results are gorgeous with crisp, lush colours and casual natural expressions, giving us a very sophisticated product.

    Serendipity have our unreserved recommendation and I would urge any newly engaged couples to check out their studio.

    Kisa & Charlie
