Testimonials

I’m delighted to have received the following testimonials from some of the couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with.


“We can highly recommend Karen as a wedding photographer. Our photos, which I can’t stop looking at, are brilliant and most importantly really captured the essence of the day and our guests at the wedding. From first meeting Karen, we could tell she was genuine and kind, she really took notice of the things important to us and our day. She was calm influence on the morning before the ceremony and our guests have spoken highly of how discreetly she moved around the wedding getting pictures of everyone.”

“Karen was our photographer for our wedding over the Christmas period this year. From booking, discussing photos, through to the day itself, Karen could not have been more professional and a delight to work with. We both enjoyed her style and understanding, especially as I had recently broken my ankle and could not stand for long for photos. The pictures were exactly as we wished and both our families love the results. I could not recommend Karen highly enough. Thank you for being a part of our day.”

Chris and Carole
Wedding venue: Murrayshall Country House Hotel, Perthshire


“Karen was lovely to work with, so easy going and full of great ideas. She really allowed us to relax on our wedding day, knowing that she was taking care of preserving our memories. The photographs were beautiful and we loved her style of capturing everything in the moment. We cannot thank her enough – she was so accommodating, we could even say she saved the day when our transportation literally didn’t show – she stepped in without a beat and ensured we made it in time.”

Lauren and Matthew
Wedding venue: Eagle Rock, Applecross and Eilean Donan Castle


“Karen was our wedding photographer this year at the Old Fruitmarket. I would recommend her for many reasons, her professionalism, making the experience personable and reassuring us when things got a wee bit stressful on the day! Karen had contacted myself promptly after enquiring, and we discussed what our vision was for the wedding, Karen was able to listen and suggest things that I hadn’t even thought of!

Throughout the course of preparing for the wedding, Karen was reachable at any moment, to discuss other ideas, and areas around the venue for couple’s photos.

Karen also met with my family at a time that suited us, as a young family we had bedtime routines to follow, Karen was happy to meet with us after out little one was in bed, and when my husband arrived back from work.

During the day of the wedding, Karen arrived on time, and stayed until she felt was the right time to leave. Karen captured so many lovely and beautiful moments during the course of the day. Capturing the essence of our wedding and our relationship.

I can’t thank Karen enough for everything she has done for us, I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.”

Sarah and Martin

“We are so happy that Karen was our photographer on our wedding day. She was absolutely fantastic, and understood exactly what we were looking for. The photos she took were absolutely beautiful and really captured our special day. Thank you Karen!”

Rachel and Stephen
Wedding venue: Loch Ness Country House Hotel, Inverness


“Karen did an excellent job of capturing our wedding day, very informal and natural photos. Every photo taken shows our wedding story from start to finish. She has a lovely calming nature and I was unaware of her snapping away during the service. I was super impressed with the quality of the wooden USB we received in the post… lovely touch and keepsake, and the photos added to music was also an added bonus to share with friends.”

Alison and Wayne
Wedding venue: Bearnock Lodge, Glenurquhart


“Karen was so good with us from our first meeting! Joseph and I weren’t too keen on posing all day but Karen made us feel so relaxed and took natural images of our guests and us enjoying the day just like we wanted. She was so discreet that we hardly even noticed she was there. We are so happy we chose Karen as our photographer as we now have a beautiful collection of photos that capture the atmosphere of our day perfectly.”

Gillian and Joseph
Wedding venue: Abercairny Stables, Perthshire


“Karen was fantastic. We are so glad that we chose her. She blended in seamlessly without trying to be the life and soul of the party, like I’ve seen some photographers try and do. She arrived early to get an idea of the scenery and to get some good ideas for some shots too. Karen was very professional. She knew what we were looking for from the get-go and effortlessly delivered on her promises. All her photos captured the mood and setting of our wedding perfectly. She was very happy, friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend her.”

Aileen and Simon
Wedding venue: Boath House Hotel, Nairn


“A wonderful photographer who did well to put up with my zainy family. She was very relaxed and accommodating and I’d recommend her to anyone having a wedding.”

Charmaine and Alastair
Wedding venue: Assynt House, Evanton


“Karen recently shot our September wedding. She has beautifully captured the mood of the day and all the wee details for us! We faced some challenges with the rain and the midges but you wouldn’t know by looking at the photographs. As well as her images, Karen’s communication was superb and I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
