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

“We were delighted to have Karen photograph our wedding last month. Karen made the whole process simple and was an absolute pleasure to work with. On the day we were so relaxed and happy with the way Karen worked, and the photos came out beautifully. Can’t recommend enough and would just like to say thanks for all you’ve done.”

“We booked Karen for our wedding on 9th August 2019. We had an amazing service start to finish, with plenty of communication from the time of booking last year to the actual wedding day. A lovely, bubbly lady who makes you feel at ease. Our photographs are out of this world. We got married in the Scottish Highlands and didn’t know the area well. Karen took beautiful pictures at the wedding venue and then as an added personal touch, even took us to a few locations she recommended for additional shots. Would highly recommend Karen for a professional, trustworthy and friendly service.”

“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.”
