Received the photographs this morning and we are absolutely delighted with them.  

Thank you again for helping to make my birthday special.



We wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for photographing Finn's christening. It was a real pleasure having you capture the day. You made the whole experience, before and on the day enjoyable. On the day you made us, and our guests, feel very relaxed and this can be seen in the photos, even when we asked you to capture a photo we hadn't mentioned before you were more than happy to do it and it turned out perfectly. Most importantly we are over the moon with the photos, which have come out brilliantly, you have been able to capture special moments of the day. Receiving all the photos on a memory stick and so quickly after the christening, was great. We have been able to share and print them easily. 

Thank you so much again, we will definitely recommend you to others. 

Ailsa & John


"I just wanted to write to thank you and your wife for everything you did for us on Saturday at Carlowrie Castle. The very high quality of your photographs on your web site and the early images we have seen from the wedding speak for themselves, but what we also really appreciated on Saturday was your approach to the event. We very much felt that you were part of the day, rather than an intrusion, which can sometimes be the case.

Nothing was too much trouble despite the fact that you had so many people chipping in with their opinion, and your ability to put those of us who struggle with the idea of getting our photos taken at our ease with your humour and easy manner was much appreciated.

With all the very best and thank you

Stewart (father of the bride)


"WOW WOW WOW!!!!   All absolutely beautiful, you captured our day so well. We just sat doing a slide show and oooooh'd and aaaaaaaaaaaah'd over every single one. We can't thank you enough Jim." 

Olivia and Will


"If you are considering getting a photographer then my partner and i would highly recommend Jim as he is an honest, professional, friendly, enthusiastic,

hard working and reliable photographer. We hired Jim for our special wedding day and he far exceeded our expectations. He was approachable, courteous and has a good sense of humour too! We would happily choose him again as our photographer for any future requirements"

Matt and Amy


"These photos are fabulous!!  Words are not going to do this justice but we cannot thank you enough for your incredible effort, support & warmth yesterday & on the run up to our big day. Your attention to detail & superb personality made working with you an absolute pleasure. We had a ball & genuinely enjoyed the photo opportunities, especially when just out the three of us!! You're work was above & beyond & that did not go unnoticed.

You are an absolute gent".

Karen and Iain


"Just wanted to say thanks so much for all our amazing pictures which capture what was a perfect day. We were so glad you were part of it - will definitely recommend you - we have had a few people asking".

Love, Mr & Mrs Stewart


"Thanks so much for all your efforts Jim, the processed images look incredible, we're both delighted with all of them. You helped in making and capturing our big day, everybody has been complimenting on how good the photos turned out, especially the beach shots. Your relaxed approach and professionalism were exactly what we wanted from our wedding photographer and we have passed on your details to a number of friends who have weddings coming up over the next couple of years. Thanks again for everything you did."

Kevin and Terri


"We cannot recommend Jim highly enough as a wedding photographer.  He worked incredibly hard and his attention to detail was fantastic.  His photos are a beautiful record of the day and captured it perfectly.  He was a pleasure to have around on the day- calm, down to earth and unobtrusive, and we had some good laughs!."

Susan and Karen




"Thank you again for everything you did, you really made us feel at ease and everyone has been commenting on how brilliant you were. They are brilliant thanks."

Claire & Craig



 "Thanks everyone for your lovely comments and for liking my photo. I really appreciate them. I feel however that I should thank the people who made me look as good as I did! Firstly, the lovely Lucy Gourlay from LG Make-up who along the way became a good friend. Next the amazing Keith Marshall who did my hair exactly the way I envisioned it. The wonderful Jim Mackintosh from j c macintosh photography for his fantastic photographs and last but not least the truly talented, amazing Stephnie from Stephnie-Anne Designs who made my beautiful dress and who was such a joy and fun to work with! HUGE thank you to all of you!"



Jim was fantastic to work with and made a huge effort to accommodate all of our requests.  We were pretty particular about the fact that we wanted our photographs to be quite informal.  Jim was very patient with us and made sure he still got some great shots, in spite of our reluctance to spend any time posing.  He also managed to blend right into the wedding party, and captured some great shots of our guests (many of whom commented on what a lovely guy he was). Really couldn't recommend Jim more.

Claire and Neil


Jim photographed our wedding this summer and we couldn't be happier with the pictures as well as the warm, friendly and personal attention we received from our first meeting to the final photo DVD. Throughout the process Jim was extremely professional and helpful - both our venue manager and minister were blown away when he showed up to check out the locations before hand!! Communication between ourselves and Jim through emails, phone calls and texts were always promptly received and replied to and we always felt in the loop. Jim made us feel comfortable from the beginning involving us in his plans and listening to our ideas and thoughts. Every detail was taken care of from day one which made photographs on the day a great experience. We have had so many of our guests commenting on how great Jim was both in the quality of shots and his approach and manner. He skillfully managed 'would be photographer' guests and has captured our wedding day the way we had hoped to remember it.  After the event Jim worked so hard to touch up and fix up photographs for us and we were so impressed with the speed and quality when we received our first uncut round of photographs. Jim was speedy with the final DVD draft as well keeping the same high quality and tasteful presentation throughout. We really cannot say enough good things about having Jim as our photographer, we would strongly recommend him to any and all - a pleasure from the beginning to the end. 

Liz and Jack




I just wanted to say how delighted we are with the photos you took of our wedding. As a photographer myself, choosing someone to photograph the most important day of my life was never going to be easy!  However I could not be more delighted with what you have produced – beautiful images of intimate and group scenes, as well as all the details of the day: the cake, the flowers, the table settings.  You really managed to capture our day!


We all appreciated your relaxed approach which effectively put us all at our ease and produced more informal shots – exactly what we’d hoped for.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding photographer – their day will be in safe hands.

Hazel and Karl




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.


The photos you took of Julia and I are superb.


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.


Adam and Julia



I'm sure you will have seen by now but we LOVE the image you sent us. Thank you. And we can't thank you enough for yesterday, you were a star! You looked like us by the end of the day, knackered but loving it!

I would be eternally grateful if I could use your photo of me as it is far and away the best snap I've had taken in years. (To advertise Summerhall event).

John Byrne (Artist and Playwright)



This is a major breakthrough for me honestly! Can't believe no tears have fallen in this process, I'm normally so stressed out with it all. You are a bloody star I'm telling ya!

Kate Dickie (actress)



Jim pays attention to every detail and gives you great feedback, on how to improve a shot. He always makes you laugh and feel comfortable even if your nervous, always keeps the shoot fun and exciting  ***** What more can you ask for.

Band Shoot

Brilliant shoot of the band last Sunday in the Leith Area.  The photos are amazing and actually make us look good (which is not easy).  Nice and relaxed with some brilliant locations.  Really good laugh aswell, thanks again

Barry Van Dykes



Thank you so much for the amazing photos you took on our wedding day. They were just what we wanted - natural shots of all our friends and family enjoying themselves and some great one's of the bridal party which made us so happy seeing the photos again. Brought back memories of the day. You made all our guests feel so laid back and many commented on how relaxed you made them feel even weeks after the wedding. Would have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks for making the day so memorable.

Lyndsey & Alan Conway



Such a great guy. Kind, polite and focuses on making his subject feel at ease. Such a great eye for pictures and detail along with lighting and proportions. Enjoyed working with him every minute

Sandy Smith


Many thanks for the excellent photographs of my daughter's recent wedding. We are delighted with them. Your attention to detail, organisation, professional ability and people skills all shone through. We have a great set of photographs that are well presented and capture a fantastic day for future enjoyment. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the lovely photos.  Great job in keeping the kids focussed.  We've got some lovely family photos that will be framed and treasured forever.

Joan Haig


I just wanted to say thank you very much for the images you took of my pre-wedding party.  You did a fabulous job and I am very pleased with the outcome of all the images.  The portable studio was a hit with everyone, with people able to have family shots, and the informal images where you were ‘capturing the moments’ were beautiful.  You made everyone feel very relaxed and you even managed to get Stephen to smile for the photos! As you know, anything to do with a wedding is very important and I am glad you were there to capture the special occasion. Thank you.

Jim's superb skills and abilities with a camera are self evident, but it is the effortless and natural way he has with his subjects that sets him apart.  His relaxed and easy going manner creates the perfect photographer/client atmosphere and ensures that the best possible results can be achieved.  Whatever your needs, if you're looking for a photographer, you will be delighted with Jim's approach and results.

We recently booked Jim to take photographs of my two nieces (aged 5 and 2). This was the first time the kids had been photographed professionally and so we were not sure how they would be. Jim was fantastic with them and his patience and friendly manner meant both the kids felt at ease very quickly. The photos are of an extremely high quality. He has definitely captured their personalities in them. I would definitely recommend jc mackintosh photography.        



Dear Jim,Thank you so much for a great photo shoot! I love the images and moments that you have captured! I am impressed by the speed at which this happened, from taking the pictures to processing them. The shoot itself I  particularly enjoyed - it felt very easy. I'd definitely recommend you to my friends!! Thanks again. Agathe @ Heels over Head Dance Theatre
