"After Tonya photographed our wedding last year I asked her to return to take to take photos of my Horse & Dog. On both occasions she has captured real ‘moments’ in a professional but very relaxed manner. I know I have some beautiful photographs that I am only to proud to place on my wall in full view. A very talented lady, I can’t recommend her for both occasions highly enough." - Mrs Taylor
"Superb! You are so good Tonya! The subjects, no matter what or who they are seem to radiate for you, you've obviously got a gentle approach and this really comes across through the subjects and into the photo. Quite hard to put into words really but your style is unique. It's more a feeling than a picture! Wonderful!" - Mrs Hogan
"We needed a photographer to take some pictures of our family; this included the four of us, a dog and two cats. Tonya Whittell was recommended and we engaged her to do a photo shoot on a Saturday afternoon. I know from experience that animals are never the best of subjects to photograph and will never do what you tell them, this is especially true of cats. Tonya’s approached is to exercise great patience and wait for the right moment even if it means lying down on the floor or on the grass for ages to get that good shot. My wife has severe Dementia and can be a little awkward at times but was treated with such kindness and understanding by Tonya that she thoroughly enjoyed the session. I have seen photos by Tonya before and after her visit to us and know that to be a good photographer you need that certain something, Tonya has that certain something.
Would I use Tonya again the answer is an assuredly yes" - B Franklin
"Tonya came to our house to photograph the children so it was a relaxed and comfortable enironment for them playing in the garden. they warmed to Tonya straight away and were completely at ease with her. The shoot was not at imposing and was very natural. Tonya captured each moment beautifully resulting in some really stunning shots. The hardest thing is going to be choosing which ones to have printed and framed as they are all so good!" - S Graham
