"Richard came to shoot our debut EP launch gig at The Monarch in Camden, London in April this year.
He really managed to capture the feel of the show and also had great timing to shoot some wonderful close up shots and also capturing those tiny moments of us at our most natural.
We were very pleased with the photos and he is also a very friendly and easy to work with photographer which is always a thumbs up."
- Blake Robson (Black River Wild)
"Hayley has a gift for taking incredibly natural shots, at the right time to capture perfect memories of the day. Completely unobtrusive, most of the time you hardly even notice she is there with her camera, but end up with these amazing photos that never fail to delight. I would now ask Hayley to do the photography that I need for any event, and cannot recommend her highly enough." - Claire
“Hayley has undertaken projects for me for both my personal and professional life. In both cases she was thorough in her approach, took time to understand what I was looking for and then captured the very essence I was looking for. Highly recommend Hayley as someone who will exceed your expectations.” - Jackie
"We were lucky enough to have both Richard & Hayley taking our wedding photos and capturing perfectly all our special moments. They were extremely professional but also incredibly calming during the more tense moments.
We really couldn't have asked for a more beautiful set of photos and we would highly recommend them to any future Bride and grooms." - Craig & Alexandra
"Hayley has a beautifully natural style that captured the emotion of our wedding day so perfectly, that I was moved to tears! She has a true gift for finding those joyful moments which make the day so unique and special." - Donna
"Photography isn’t just about taking pictures! Its about capturing our deepest thoughts and dreams and most importantly the moment. This is exactly what Hayley Robertson achieved from Payley Photography. We are fortunate, granted to be based on the beautiful Island of Menorca but Hayley made our images come to life and with any luck snowball us into a successful business. Watch this space… Thank you for your excellent work. We look forward to working with you again" - Jason McMurray and Paolo Scarpa from Son Parc Studios, Menorca

USE THEM, you won't be disappointed" - Kelly
"I cannot recommend Payley Photography highly enough. They are friendly, yet professional, discreet and efficient. As well as providing me with all the shots I asked for, they came up with new and interesting ideas and made sure I got a wide range of lovely photographs on both occasions I hired them. Their style of photography brings out the very best in their subjects. I look forward to next time I can book a shoot and have already recommended them to friends." - Salima Hughes
"Payley Photography took photos for me to promote
my hire products and services including some portrait shots. Hayley and Richard are a professional duo who take a real pride in their work and ensured I was happy with each shot before they moved on to the next one. Nothing was too much trouble, they are a pleasure to work with and always deliver fantastic results. I highly recommend them"

- Lou Panteli
"Thank you so much for your creativity and professionalism, fabulous service at literally a moments notice!

"Hayley did my bump to baby pictures. They are fantastic. She was very patient with both my children and her work is creative and thoughtful. my favourite is the bump pic that is tinted blue for a boy! " - Jess
"Hayley's relaxed and fun approach resulted in wonderful shots of the girls as they played. I didn't want formal studio portraits but natural family photos and that is exactly what we got. We are so pleased with the results." - Sam
When Hayley presented me with the many glorious pictures of baby Robin, I was quite shocked, as it literally felt that she had just popped by for a coffee! Hayley has a great balance of being professional and relaxed. Her photography has captured Robin's personality at such a young age. The whole experience was pure, effortless fun - Leah
When I decided to set up my LinkedIn account, I realised with dismay - as I am not keen to be photographed - that a good quality shot that conveys the right message is a very important requirement. Luckily for me, Richard Pay - who puts the Pay in Payley Photography - was keen to help. Richard took shots in a garden setting and produced a great selection for me to choose from. Amazingly done in under an hour - because he knows I am not one for sitting around much - but without any feeling of hurry. I would recommend Richard highly if you need a really good photographer who wants to get things right for you. And, I have been happy to put the Payley Photography duo - Richard and Hayley - forward to the Directors to become official event photographers at the busy stables where I work in Kent. And they have done a brilliant job already at a show and dressage competition this season.
- Jennifer, SE London
“Hayley’s dedication to artistic brilliance is amazing, and so are the portraits she took of Natalie. Hayley worked with Natalie in a way that made her feel completely relaxed and comfortable on both occasions; and that, with teenagers is important…!
Hayley has a natural talent, an eye for things and angles, and a huge amount of passion for photography and the joy this gives to people.
We will be using Hayley again, and again…”
- Gaby Weidlich
"I asked Payley Photography to shoot pics at my Aerobathon event last year and I was not expecting such a raft of top quality, unusual, eye catching and amusing pictures! I was absolutely thrilled and have not stopped using the pics on my social media and newsletters ... adding captions or simply letting the pictures speak for themselves!
I will not hesitate to use Payley Photography again - they were a dream to work with before, during and after the event. Simply top class." - Francesca Flin, Flin's Fitness 2014
"MASSIVE thank you from me to the utterly professional Hayley Robertson & Richard Pay who were unobtrusive, sensitive and TOTALLY BRILLIANT!
You guys rock!" - Fran Flin 2015
"A really good selection of pictures with what we wanted to achieve. Great with the kids at the shoot made them feel relaxed and had fun!" - Heather, Studio 74
"Payley Photography came to my assistance at very short notice, nothing was too much trouble, and the calm approach they brought with them, helped alleviate my fears and ease my panicking, after organising such a mammoth event. The Westcombe Park Black Tie & Sparkle Ball was a huge success, and Hayley & Richard floated around the room, taking photos without anyone really noticing them - the best way to capture the ambience of the evening. The photos are spectacular, and I have already booked Payley Photography for our next big event in September, our Westcombe Park Ladies Day. Thank you, Hayley & Richard for capturing our event with such wonderful images."
- Michelle Harvey
