RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Scotland WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Claire & Simon

Photo by Paul Rogers

My husband and I really wanted a relaxed style of photography and were impressed by the work you'd done previously. As a photojournalist, your mission was to capture the spirit of the day, so that we could relive the moments in the years to come and you did that beautifully. Everyone has remarked on how amazing the photographs are - not just in terms of the moments that you captured, but also your genuine skill as a photographer and we couldn't be more pleased. The other comment I hear all the time is the fact that nobody noticed you taking pictures. It was all very unobtrusive so everyone relaxed. As a person, we couldn't have asked for someone more warm and friendly - My children loved you and one is quite shy so this is a major achievement.

Hi Erika. Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to take the time to write to you and thank you for the enormous role you played on our wedding day. Words don’t seem to quite cover how we feel, but I will give it a go! We weren’t sure what to expect when booking a photographer- we both hated the idea of having a camera shoved in our face all day, posing and saying cheese. As you know, this is why we chose you and felt confident with your refreshing view to photography after we met for the first time. On the day, you were totally true to your word. You managed to capture it all, with great professionalism but unobtrusively. But for me personally, I want to say that I am so grateful for the support you showed me throughout. You kept me calm and helped me get the most from the day. I know, from the few images you showed us on the day, that I will (for once in my life!) like pictures of myself because you have captured our personality more than just how we look. Erika- quite honestly, you were a guest at our wedding first and photographer second. You were a fantastic asset to us and everything you did to look after us both during the day was so greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much. Our family and friends commented on you lots also and they totally echo our sentiments. So yeah....I think it’s important to say all these things to you, because yes- we have paid for a service. But what we got in return was an amazing extra wedding guest, a great friend and a fantastic support. Thank you
