Where to begin! I feel so lucky that we were able to book Cyrus for our wedding photography via a recommendation. Before we even met, the communication on email and telephone reflected the style we were after; professional, smart, relaxed and more than a touch of class. Cyrus has such great creative vision and can interpret his client's wishes with genuine enthusiasm. Cyrus wasn't just our wedding photographer, he was an integral part of our day. He captured the essence of our relaxed, informal wedding with a warm and charismatic style and the images are beautiful. Thank you Cyrus!
Kerry and Andrew, wedding
Cyrus was recommended by a colleague for our wedding in June 2018 and we were not disappointed. Cyrus has an engaging personality and puts everyone at their ease with his great humour and has an innate ability to keep focussed and on schedule without rushing. He has so much experience that he intuitively takes photos that others would have missed. He is a joy to be around and very quickly becomes a key part of a very special day... we wholly recommend Cyrus Mower to all as he definitely brings a 'special sparkle' to a very special day. Thank you again Cyrus.
Pamela and Richard, wedding
My husband and I are usually quite awkward on camera, which is why for our wedding, we were excited and delighted that Cyrus was able to fit us in his busy schedule. He had been highly recommended by my sister-in-law and my man of honor, and has become a family friend rather. He has a wonderful sense for capturing moments naturally and put our guests at ease. Given that I have family and guests who couldn't make it to our wedding, it was very special for us to have so many wonderful photos to share. Truly do recommend Cyrus for capturing your memories.
Diwa & Jonny, wedding
Cyrus photographed our proposal, engagement ceremony and civil wedding. He was very professional and we loved how he naturally made us feel at ease on the big day! We’ve got some amazing photos and would highly recommend him. Thank you Cyrus!!
Amar Dattani, engagement and wedding and chundri
Cyrus took some glorious pictures for the front cover of the book I am writing. My only dilemma was that they were all so good that I am finding it hard to select just one to use!!
Dan Eisenhandler, author
I have worked with Cyrus on several photoshoots and weddings and I’m always excited by his friendly persona, positive energy and ideas. I’m always more than pleased with the images produced and can’t wait to work together on our next project!
Louise Buxton, hair and makeup artist extraordinaire
It was an unusual request to turn 6 weary looking, clearly weather-beaten, hockey players into glamorous calendar icons, but he managed it!! With fantastic tradecraft and keen eye for expression and nuance, he rallied a fatigued Friday night into one of the most funny and enjoyable group experiences i have had in a long time! Chivvied along with a gentle sense of humour, he managed to find the pure essence of these beasts of sport that time had forgotten - results are fabulous!! Bravo and many many thanks!!
Chris Lewis, hockey calendar shoot
Cyrus set up and took some fantastic images which are included in our Guys Knit Manual. He has a really professional but friendly approach - making the model feel relaxed, and directing and composing each shot to achieve the best results. We'd definitely use him again for a similar project.
Louise McIntyre, HaynesPublishing
Fabulous to work with, kind and considerate when working within the brief given. A total star in his field!
Beth Hill, Head of Events, Oxford Brookes University
Always a great service and top-quality photos from Cyrus
Jack Rayner, Features Editor, OX Magazines
Very professional and I was very pleased with the finished result. Also a great guy and good to work with!
Kimball Thomas-Hird, athlete
We've lost count of the number of wedding guests who commented on how brilliant our photographer was. Cyrus captured our day perfectly, from start to finish. His lovely manner and good humour made everyone feel at ease, and the outcome is some truly exceptional photos! Overall excellent service and we've been merrily (and confidently) recommending him to every engaged couple I've come across since.
Lauren and Joe, full wedding package
These are perfect. Exactly what we wanted, an original flavour of the city. Some real corkers in here. Thank you!
Hans Price, Chartered Wealth Manager with Raymond James Oxford
Cyrus created some outstanding editorial pictures for my portfolio, which have helped me secure many jobs since shooting. He is a pleasure to work with and I will be referring straight back to him when my portfolio needs updating again.
Cyrus was very good, professional and personable and did an excellent job of putting little people at ease.
Kevin Game, family portrait session
Working with Cyrus was an absolute pleasure. The pictures from our photo session are absolutely stunning!! He is extremely professional, immediately puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable for the shoot. Thank YOU for capturing the best of me in the worst of weekends.
Aysha W., model
I couldn't be happier with the range of photos that Cyrus took of my Pilates class. He was discreet, professional and promptly provided me with a fantastic range of photos that I can use for my website. He also provided sound advice of where the photos should be taken as well as what lighting to use. I would highly recommend him. Many thanks again for your time Cyrus.
Andrea Finnigan - Proprietor, Finnigan Fitness
I have a strong dislike of photographers who are intrusive and expect to be at the front without respecting the people around them - you didn't do that, thank you! You behaved the opposite of that, obviously enjoyed the music and the photographs depict that. They show the joy of what was one of our best gigs ever, from the musicians and the audience. You will always be welcome at a Haven Club gig and I don't say that to many photographers!
Penny Lee - Promoter, The Haven Club @ The Bullingdon, Oxford
Cyrus showed expert technical ability and professional shoot management. The shoot was relaxed and Cyrus enabled the models to produce their best work. With his creative input we were able produce photos we desired.
James Talbot, co-proprietor, Woodstock Barbers
I'm not very good at posing for photographs, however Cyrus managed to capture the real essence of me in full flow whilst I was working both in my yoga class and during a remedial massage treatment. We chatted briefly regarding what may or may not work, but then Cyrus worked discreetly around the room and captured some beautiful moments. I now have a brilliant set of photographs of the classes, as well as the massage and head shots of me that I will be using to promote my business on my website and Facebook. Thanks Cyrus.
Denise Bridges, director, Bodyline Therapy
Killer pics dude!

I have known Cyrus for years and he has always had a passion for photography. This was evident to me a few years ago when I bumped into him at a car show in Woodstock. He was walking around with his camera and he asked if he could take a picture of my family and I said yes. He took a perfect picture of my daughter which has stuck with me for years and showed a side to her that has never before caught on camera and is one of the best pictures of her. He captures so much in one photo. I recently wanted some pictures for my website and the first person I thought of was Cyrus. He was so easy to work with, he relaxes you, explains what he is doing and ensures you are happy throughout the session. I was totally at ease and that I think is the key to having a good photo. My website photos are brilliant (www.sophiecarter.co.uk) and I had a huge amount of 'likes' on Facebook for them too.
Cyrus and I then took some portrait photographs and once again he captured some amazing photographs and I have never seen such amazing work. He is very professional but at the same time makes it look effortless. I would highly recommend him as a photographer. Thank you so much Cyrus and it is so lovely to see someone who genuinely cares and is passionate about his work.
Sophie Carter, Personal Trainer
All my friends and family have made such positive comments that I am already planning to have some more pictures taken by Cyrus.
