  • “We got married at Beamish Hall and loved our wedding shots, David and Paul made me feel really at ease and they captured some fantastic shots, now displayed in a beautiful album that we will treasure forever! We also took our daughter back to David for photos when she was 1 and again we loved the pics! David has been very patient as I took ages to make decisions on the album and which photos to use but all worth the wait”

  • “Focal point photographed our wedding at Beamish Hall and provided us with stunning images which we treasure. We have since returned to have portraits taken of our children as babies and again as toddlers. Dave is a star and made the children feel completely at ease.. We have some beautiful photos which have captured the essence of their personalities perfectly and take pride of place on our walls. We will no doubt return as the children grow and will need a bigger house to accommodate the collection!”

  • “Paul and David photographed our wedding in 2013 and they are truly two of loveliest most professional guys you could ever work with. We got to spend a few hours with them on a pre-wedding shoot a few months before the wedding and we are so glad we did.We loved our photos as they captured so much so beautifully.Thanks again guys and hope you are both doing great!! Xx.   Give them a call!!”

  • “After my husband and I met David and Paul, and saw the beautiful way they depicted so intimately the special story of couples wedding day there really was no one else we could choose. We had met many other ‘possibilities’ before that, but for us after that initial meeting we were totally won over. They really tuned in to what we wanted and spent time listening and advising us, to capture momentous pictures that for us are timeless, classy and capture the feeling of our big day perfectly. There humour and good spirit really came in handy and they supported us throughout the day. When our wedding album arrived I was speechless (and that’s a rarity), the photographs were beyond perfect and the essence if our day will be remembered by all because of their masterful creation. For us no one else could have compared. We have referred them many times for friends and family weddings; each one as good as the next. Pure genius these two xx”
