    Terri + Scott - Hi Pen + Cam,

    Gosh where do I start, not only are you the loveliest people on the planet but we love our photos more than you will ever know.With my job being in photography it took me sooo long to choose a photographer, printed out work and compared like a crazy person but in the end we didn’t even meet you before we booked you, one skype call, saw how lovely you both were and thought we want these two there on our wedding day. Our guests saw you more as friends than photographers, they still say now how much they loved chatting with you both. You captured moments which we both didn’t see being so wrapped up in the day and the pictures and video are better than we could have ever imagined. If I could give advice to anyone then it would be make sure you book both Photography and Video. At first I was unsure we needed video but watching my dad blub seeing me for the first time in the morning is truly priceless!

    All I can say is thank you! Thanks you for being calm, really caring about our day and just taking the best pictures we could have asked for.

    Sophie Bannon - Pen & Cam are not only two of the friendliest, loveliest people, but also totally amazing at what they do! They were definitely one of the best investments we made for our wedding day. They make you feel like a million dollars and are just a joy to be around. So many of our guests have highlighted them out as being one of the best bits. And we totally agree! You captured some of the most special moments we will treasure forever- thank you so much.

    Sheila Young - I guess you can tell from the testimonials that Pen and Cam are simply a wonderful couple, glowing with happy vibes and beautiful creativity.
    We first came across McKinley-Rodgers on a wedding blog when we were looking for inspiration whilst planning our wedding. We loved their photos – the way they use the light to the way that the pictures just radiate warmth and happiness. You can tell these guys love weddings. Just watching their videos and how they captured other couples’ special day made us cry. Like actual tears. We were watching strangers getting married and we were both crying with happiness! What on earth?!? (Appreciate this makes us sound a bit crazy, but I assure you, it’s a GOOD crazy…) I think that’s when we knew McKinley-Rodgers were special.
    We had a pre-shoot as part of the package and to get to know Pen and Cam before the big day (which also eliminated that awkwardness of having our mugs photographed from all angles.) They put us at ease and within minutes, I just thought, “Wow, I love these guys!”
    They work so hard and are true professionals, but at the same time, are so warm and friendly that everyone thought that they were old friends. All of our guests loved them! They captured great moments, priceless moments, and that’s part of what makes them so great – an eye for great pictures (or rather eyes plural as they’re both fantastic). We are so happy with our pictures (and that video!) – there is nothing that we would change.
    Ten months on and, from time to time, we watch the video or flick through the photos, and we are transported back to a very happy day. So if you are umming and ahing about whether or not to book Pen and Cam, our advice is to just do it. You won’t regret it.ReplyCancel

    BEE + TOM - Pen and Cam are quite simply the best! The photos from our wedding are our absolute favourite thing in the world and that’s coming from two people who don’t usually like photos of themselves! Not only are they a JOY to be around but they managed to capture every angle of our day which is amazing because as the bride and groom you miss so much. I cannot recommend them enough, if you’re undecided on wedding photographers – JUST BOOK THEM!
    Thank you both for everything! xReplyCancel

    Rams & Springy - The reviews speak for themselves but never will your money be better spent than on these photographers / friends! Two of the loveliest, smiliest and happiest people you could ever wish to meet. The photographs of our special day are amazing and we will treasure them for the rest of our days. Quite simply – hire them!ReplyCancel

    Carrie & James - One of the loveliest aspects of wedding planning was getting to meet Pen & Cam in the process. They are wonderful people, full of love and joy, and they made the prospect of marriage all the more exciting thinking maybe we could make it look even half as cool as they do. 
    Pen & Cam were so much a part of the festivities whilst perfectly capturing them that our family and friends continue to ask after them. Our photos are stunning, our videos are superb.  They encapsulate everything we felt on the day, everything we feel looking back on the day, and it’s so authentic to us. 
    To Pen and Cam, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. xx To those of you planning your upcoming nuptials, congrats! – and email Pen & Cam straight away to book them!ReplyCancel

    Neale and Jodie - The above comments say it all and the images/videos showcase the true talents of these wonderful human beings.

    Pen and Cam, thankyou so much for making our 2015 truly special. The fact that Jodie and I chose you before even looking at any venues and setting a date shows how special your talents are. It was one of those moments when we both knew Mckinley-Rodgers HAD to lead the way in making our big day so special.

    From the pre wedding shoot where we had such fun getting know you both and to see how you work in utter harmony giving us incredible images in the beautiful setting of fistral beach (and helping me be ‘natural’ in front of the camera), to being absolute stars on the big day! Our guests loved you, and in our eyes you were our guests as well capturing the day as our friends.

    You both are the coolest people! Cam you are an absolute legend and hero, you kept me calm in the morning and laughing all day. Pen, you are a beautiful spirit, from the start to the end you were patient and calm, which Jodie really appreciated! You both were amazing and were always there at the right time all day, the perfect mix.

    If your lucky enough to be preparing for your big day and need a photographer then look no further, you’ve found them, Jodie and I are so grateful we did.

    Love you guys lots and hopefully see you soon!

    Neale and Jodie. XxReplyCancel

    Heidi & Dean - Well I am sure all is covered in the above comments, But we would like to thank Pen and Cam for being the best photographers ever!
    We were recommended these guys by another photographer which speaks for itself.
    We just fell in love with all their work, We went for the long kiss good night and glad we did as it covered everything and more.
    All our Friends and Family said on the day and after how great they were, like they weren’t there but at the same time played a big part in our day.
    Great at what they do and such lovely people too.
    Thanks again,

    Cate Walsh - From the first day I emailed with Pen & Cam, I knew that we made the best decision in picking them to capture our special day. we found McKR through a friend recommending them after she had been a guest at a wedding they photographed, and saw how wonderfully they interacted with all the guests throughout the day.

    Meeting Cam for our Beloved shoot further cemented how fantastic, kind and amazing they are. Cam was so enthusiastic and so excited about love and marriage, and gave us wonderful things to do and say to each other, that the engagement photos were not only some of the most natural pictures of us, but the day was like a mini therapy session!

    And then the wedding day. Well, everyone just loved them. Pen and Cam fit in so naturally to the day that it just feels like friends are photographing your day. Multiple guests commented to us how wonderfully they handled every situation, even to the point of how they explain their reasoning for adjusting people for group shots. There are too many moments to write here, but one of my favorite parts of the day was the 15-20 minutes Pen & Cam took us away for our little shoot just the two of us and had us practice our first dance in the distance, even away from them. Our little moment amongst the craziness!

    The photos and the video themselves are just incredible. The lighting is magnificent, and the moments they captured are beautiful and of pure joy. We adore them. Anyone who is debating doing a Story Catchers video: DO IT! I watch it almost every day, and cry pretty much every time. It so beautifully captures the joy of the day, and I love being able to give people a flavor of the day in 5 minutes. We will treasure it forever.

    Thank you so much Pen & Cam for capturing our day. We absolutely loved having you there.

    Love,
    Cate & Joe xxReplyCancel

    Robin and Tash - If saying ‘I do’ was the highlight of our wedding, having Pen and Cam there to photograph the entire day was a very close second. Not only are they the loveliest couple you could hope to have at your wedding (regardless of their cameras) but their photos were able to capture every last drop of happiness that everyone brought to the wedding.

    Having Cam with the groomsmen and Pen with the bridal party allowed them both to record the more private pre-ceremony moments and their calming influence was a huge bonus to help settle any last minute nerves! It is also no exaggeration to say that all the guests loved having Pen and Cam there; how they managed to find time to take so many beautiful photos whilst being constantly badgered for conversation by our friends is beyond us, and the fact that they stayed a bit longer to snap some of the more incriminating dancefloor action was hugely appreciated!

    It’s frequently said that the sign of good photographers is that you don’t notice they are there, and whilst this was undoubtedly true we are so glad that we had two photographers who were not only able to take photos discretely, but were also able to offer advice, reassurance and heaps of positivity throughout the day.

    We can’t recommend them highly enough and hope many more couples make the same choice we did!

    Hannah & Dave - We were initially nervous about choosing our wedding photographers, as we both had siblings who’d been disappointed with their own wedding photos. We didn’t want anything too formal, cheesy or staged, but just wanted natural moments captured beautifully. After looking at Pen and Cam’s photos on their website, we felt sure that their style would suit us.

    We met them for a short pre-shoot, and they put us at ease instantly and were so warm and welcoming. After those couple of hours spent with them, we knew that our wedding photos were in safe hands, and that they understood what we were looking for.

    On the day itself, they were prompt, professional – but also that same warmth and friendliness shone through, and we have since had so many of our guests say to us how lovely Pen and Cam were and how much they liked them both!

    We couldn’t be happier with the results and are so glad we had Pen and Cam looking after us on the day. We feel so lucky to have so many beautiful photos and a fantastic short video that captures our day and all the fun we had with our friends and family.
    Thank you both for all your hard work!
    Hannah and Dave

    Lindzi & Oskar - Choosing the right photographers for our wedding was vital. We knew as we grew old together and our memories faded, the pictures of our wedding day would be all that was left to tell the story. They had to capture the emotions, atmosphere and people sharing in our special day in a true and timeless way. We sought out a photographer unimposing and almost journalistic in nature. After discovering Pen and Cams website, we fell in love with their photography, style and talent. And upon meeting them, we feel in love with them too! Such a lovely, friendly and interesting couple, we instantly felt at ease with them. Calm and collected in their ways and company, we felt as though we’d been friends for years.

    This sense of ease and comfort was captured in the wedding day photo’s as we and our guests were entirely unfazed by their presence. The results of the photographs were way beyond our expectation, they captured everything perfectly. We honestly felt like we were reliving the day, when we viewed them for the first time. Not only were we impressed, but so were our guests. Who not only LOVED the photos, but commented on how well Pen and Cam blended in, not realising they were photographers in some cases and in others reporting how much effort they had made in chatting and mingling with everyone. (I think my mother in law fell for Cam that day 🙂 )

    We made the best choice of photographers and made some two new friends too! Thank you so much for being part of our day, you helped make it, what it was. You guys rock!

    Thank you so much guys! You definitely rock!ReplyCancel

    Alex and Graham - The year since we got married (October 2015) has flown by. So much was going on just after the wedding that we didn’t manage to leave a review for Pen and Cam – we were reminded to do so when we had a look back through our gorgeous wedding photos around the time of our first wedding anniversary this year. What a treat it was – Pen and Cam’s talent with their cameras meant that we were able to relive our day again; they managed to capture the essence of it so perfectly. So perhaps the timing of this review is a little different to usual – but I guess the point is it was so worth it to have such wonderful photographers – Pen and Cam have captured our memories perfectly, so that we can remind ourselves of our day again and again.ReplyCancel
