Just a note to say thank you so much for doing a brilliant job at our Wedding in Kilconquhar Castle Estate, Fife in October 2013. We appreciate it wasn’t an easy brief:
- It was an autumn wedding with poor light and potentially awful weather.
- The Lindsay Room where we had our ceremony, although beautiful, was also very dark.
- We wanted your services for as long as possible throughout the day but on a budget already stretched thin by the usual wedding costs.
But you overcame all the challenges! I remember looking at your portfolio a few years ago when you were just setting up the business. It was clear back then that your speciality was people - which after all is exactly what makes a wedding, whether it’s held at fairytale castle or a village hall. When we met with you to discuss our plans you were so enthusiastic - you had all these ideas and suggestions about how to make our pictures unique. We loved your request for pictures of our VIP guests so that you could identify how they liked to be addressed and memorise this - all to make people feel relaxed as you worked. We also appreciated you taking the time to visit the venue a few weeks beforehand - it was clear on the day when you guided us around the grounds and afterwards when we saw the photos - that you had done of lot of preparation.
On the day itself, you really excelled at getting the best from all our guests, everyone responded to your directions because they were clear, quick and delivered with humour. It’s not an exaggeration to say that it felt like a family member taking the photos, everyone remarked on your friendly persona. No one really likes getting their photo taken but when the photographer is as charismatic as you it’s a much less painful process. Also, being able to contact you anytime via email or text both before and after our wedding made the whole process so much easier.
The photos you took of Julia and I are superb and we’re grateful for your post-production removal of blemishes. Also, having the shots in both web and print format is especially handy for making thank you cards and emailing family overseas.
You recognised that after it’s all over, it is the wedding photographs that provoke the shared memories and we look forward to sharing ours with family and friends.
