testimonials

Rachael and Chris Harrison

‘The boys loved it, they keep saying ‘we love Karen, when is Karen coming back.’  I think you are a hit with them!  It was lovely for us to see them so happy having their photos taken too.  Thank you again, it has been a brilliant experience all round.’

 

Gregor Ritchie, East India Company

‘Karen it was a pleasure working with you on this project, well done.  You captured the essence, style, sophistication and innovative menu in spectacular form.’

 

Nick Cody, The Small Change Diaries

‘I have hired Karen on a number of occasions after she was highly recommended to me by a colleague.  Her photographs are nothing less than extraordinary, and surpass all other photographic work commissioned to date by a mile.  Little wonder that she has received awards for her work and her services are so sought after.  As someone who has been involved with the creative arts and marketing for many years, it is rare in my experience to find anyone this talented.  I will certainly be using her services for all further products, and her photographs will be used extensively in our band promotions and CD release.’

 

Nicola Grant, SDL Construction Management

‘We are all absolutely delighted with the results from our shoot, and I am having a hard time shortlisting for the website.’

 

Kate Goldring, Candlelighters Children’s Cancer Charity

‘Jo and I had a look at the photos just as I was leaving the office.  To say we love them is an understatement, just amazing, thank you very much for being so talented.’

 

Linda and Michael Moran

‘We are delighted with the framed photographs of our three granddaughters and they look wonderful in our hallway.  I am sure our daughter and son will be delighted with their gifts at Christmas.  Many thanks and we will be in touch in the future.’

 

Joanne Holmes

‘How I held back he tears I don’t know, I was very choked indeed.  You have done any amazing job, I can’t wait to see the album, and I hope for a repeat service once Tamsin is a wee bit older.  You have captured our children, their beautiful souls and our hearts!’

 

Steve Grattage

‘Karen is amazing and her photographs are so stunning.  I love and adore all her work.  I have the most amazing pictures of my boys that will last a lifetime.  Three sessions so far, and we are already looking forward to the next one.  Just wonderful!’

 

Neil Walker

‘Totally amazing, captured my wedding, family and now my children.  A professional and an amazing person, love this girl and love her work…’

 

Simon and Nigel

‘Absolutely amazing.  Check out these great photos and hire the best photographer around. It is like having your event shot by a ghost, as you don’t even know she is there. Awesome!’

 

Claudia and Family

‘I just wanted to say that the photos are amazing.  You have captured the unique personalities, moments and details so well.  I would highly recommend you to anyone.’

 

Martin Mawson, Furst Class Lounge

‘All the images gratefully and safely received, they are a work of genius, we love all of them.  The problem we have now is choosing the ones we want on the website, we are truly spoilt for choice!’

 

Rajan Herar

‘Amazing photos as always Karen, we are both thrilled and are very excited to see the finished framed portraits.  Thank you so much you are an amazing, talented photographer who captures the moment perfectly.  In June 2005 at our wedding you did just an amazing job, and now 8 years on yet another.  When we left your studio last Sunday Yogita and I were all smiles, thank you so much for these wonderful memories of our boys.’

 

Sally Rasmussen

‘I have received the girls’ portrait album, thank you, it is stunning!!  Words can’t describe it, just gorgeous.’

 

Becci Walker

‘Last night was cracking, I actually did cry halfway through the slideshow!!  The photos are amazing!!  You are absolutely brilliant.  Thank you so much and we can’t wait to get them on the walls.’

 

Rachel Finsbury

8 years ago when Simon and I got married Karen took some fantastic wedding photos for us…  So when our daughter was born the only person we wanted to take professional photos of our new family was Karen, and 8 years later we were once again thrilled with the results.  Her artistic eye and ability to capture Daisy just perfectly make her a great photographer; and her attention to detail (from the shoot, to the choosing of the best photos for us for the framing) is second to none.  We now have a wonderful frame with 9 photos in it hanging in our lounge, which perfectly captures our daughter at 7 months old.

Thank you Karen, I would recommend you over and over again.’

 

Una Haveron

‘Oh Karen, I’ve seen them and they are fantastic, I have got tears in my eyes looking at them – love Harry’s ice cream face and you have captured the boys beautifully (there was never any doubt!!!)’

 

Lauren and Iestyn Evans

‘Thank you so much for our amazing screen print and outstanding album.  I think 18 months on we truly appreciate the images that you captured, and my dad credits you with ‘running the day!’  We couldn’t have wished for anything better.  They make us laugh, then cry and then laugh again – absolutely perfect!’

 

Ian Breckin, father of the groom

‘What can I say apart from brilliant photos, absolutely captured the day, we could not be more pleased.  Thank you for making it seem so easy and relaxed. We all had a fantastic day and are very glad you were part of it.’

 

John Gibbins, father of the bride

‘I would like to thank you so much for coming to Cyprus to cover the marriage of my daughter Judy and her new husband Rob.  The wedding and occasion was very emotional and exceeded all my expectations…  You were so instrumental in contributing to the day, the resultant photographs are exceptional and encapsulate the whole day.  Thank you so much for everything you did for us on the day, we are all so happy with the outcome and YOU made it special.’

 

Jane & Ryan Denham

‘Karen’s an amazing person and her work is truly inspiring.  She captures precious moments in time without you even knowing she’s taken a single image.  Karen came to Italy to capture our wedding… the pictures are out of this world and make us smile whenever we see them.  We hope one day to get her take some of our babies too!’

 

Sarah Cottle

‘With my first child Charlie I had his photo-shoot in a studio and it all felt a little stilted and staged.  When it was Eva’s turn I asked Karen who came to the house to take her portrait. It was by far the best decision.  Eva was happy and relaxed in her own surroundings, and so in turn the photos captured her character perfectly.  The children loved Karen immediately!  She is great fun and takes fantastic photos, I can highly recommend her services.’

 

Rachel Grattage

‘We put some of your pictures up this weekend, it was so hard to decide which ones to go for as they are all so amazing. I know I have said it before, but they are so stunning they really take my breath away. Thank you so much for capturing my boys’ personalities perfectly.  I will forever look at them and smile.’

 

Helen & Michael Gledhill

‘Just wanted to let you know that we have got our album now and we LOVE IT!!! It is just fabulous and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks again for everything and it is just the most perfect keepsake of our wedding day.’

 

Fiona & Padraig Enright

‘I know that Fiona has already replied but I wanted to also, now that we have had time to absorb them properly. They are just fantastic! Every time We look at them I see something different. Regardless of them being of our wedding, the way that you take your shots is amazing! And again I can’t say enough how great you were on the day. We felt like you were a guest and not the photographer!’

 

Ally & Gareth Whelan

‘Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding photography. So many people commented on the day how lovely it was that things were so relaxed and that we could enjoy the drinks reception! We love our album and can’t wait to show it to family and friends. I have already recommended you to friends and will continue to do so. Many thanks again for making our day so special.’

 

Elizabeth & Pete Chambers

‘Thank you so much for the amazing photographs, we can’t wait to show everyone! We are not sure how you managed it but all our crazy family look amazing! We had a magical day and you captured it perfectly. We now have to narrow down the photos somehow!’

 

Thea & Steve Parry

‘Just a little note to say a HUGE thank you for the fabulous photos – we never thought they would be any less than perfect but they totally blew us away. Especially when I usually take an awful photo!! Steve looks pretty handsome too…’

 

Rebecca & Paul Smith

‘Just a note to say thank you for our wonderful wedding album and for taking such care and attention to detail. We are so pleased with it!’

Kate & Steve Anson

‘Just to say a huge ‘thank you’ for our fabulous wedding photos. The album is beautiful and will be treasured forever – still doing a full hand inspection before letting anyone’s greasy paws on it!’

 

Katy & Dan Lissaman

‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such a fantastic job and capturing our special day amazingly well. As you predicted – we are taking ages as spoilt for choice with the proofs!’

 

Danni & Nikul Pishavadia

‘They are just amazing photos. Thank you so much. I can’t help but keep looking at them. We had so much fun on the day – you have really captured the happiness and fun of it all.’

 

Hilary Stocks – mother of the bride

‘Your photos of Sarah and Oli’s wedding are amazing and we are so delighted with our album. Thank you very much. They tell such a wonderful story, and bring back memories of a very special day.’

 

Keith – father of the bride

‘Danni showed us the proofs last weekend and I have just been looking at your web site, thanks for helping make the day so memorable, I cannot help but keep smiling everytime I see the photos, especially the ones you took in the car. I can still hear the screams of delight – she does scrub up well doesn’t she’

 

Sarah & Oliver Irons

‘A belated thank you from us to express our huge thanks for being the best wedding photographer! I cannot tell you how much we love the album and are just sad that this brings our wedding finally to a close. It has been such a pleasure working with you. Your photos are beautiful and capture the day perfectly.’

 

Charlotte & Michael Veitch

‘A big thank you for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. The photographs are better than we could have hoped for and we can not wait to get the album. Thank you as well for being such fun and putting everyone at ease, along with all your help and advice. A very professional service and very relaxed on the day.’

 

Helen & Michael Gledhill

‘We just wanted to say thank you so much for our amazing wedding photographs, they have really captured how fantastic the day was! We both loved working with you and thanks for all you did on the day.’

 

Rachel & Madhu Herar

‘Just to say a huge thank you for the fabulous photos – we are so happy with the album, you captured everything from ‘one’ of our special days!!’

 

Katie & Andy Wallwork

‘Just to say a MASSIVE thank you for our amazing wedding photos, we are both so pleased with them. Thank you for making us feel so relaxed on the day and for helping us decide which photos to put in our album.’

 

Sereena & Rodney Edgerton

‘Great to see you at the weekend and thank you again for the album. We absolutely love it and it is so much better than we anticipated it would be. I felt quite emotional looking through it as it really brought back the day for me. Our families love it too!’

 

Sam & Simon Newall

‘I cannot actually believe I am now adding to your collection of ‘Thank You’ cards that I always took the Michael out of! Anyway on a serious note, we just wanted to say that we think you are the most expensive (sorry) the best and most fun photographer person in the world, and we simply love our photographs!’

 

Jane & Ryan Denham

‘Thank you Karen, from the bottom of our hearts for coming to Italy and capturing the most perfect day of our lives to date. We are always going to look back and be able to re-live every single moment with each picture of our wedding day… and we owe that all to you. You are truly blessed with a gift, our wedding photos are amazingly breathtaking, so many of them have brought tears to our eyes.’

 

Jeni & Liam Julian

‘Thank you for capturing our wedding day so beautifully – it was more than we could have dreamed of. Thanks for your time and creativity.’

 

Alex & James Bishop

‘I would like to reiterate how pleased we are with our photos! The more we look at them, the more we love them. Thank you for being a part of our special day – thanks to you we will always have so many fantastic memories to remember!’

 

Vicki & Gabe Mythen

‘Thanks very much for the album, we’re really pleased with it. We’ve looked through it countless times already! It is a great reflection of the day.’

 

Romina & Anthony Ho

‘Although it has been over a year since our wedding we wanted to say thank you for capturing our special day on camera. We are delighted with our wedding album and we are sure we will enjoy looking at the photos for years to come.’

 

Lynn & Joe Wearing

‘Thank you so much for our fantastic photos. We are absolutely thrilled with all of them and can’t wait for the finished album!’

 

Prue & Dylan Peat

‘I just want to say a massive thank you from me and Prue. The album is just brilliant, the story runs perfectly and has brought back a lot of really good emotions. This is a testimony to your work and I thank you so much for giving us something that will continue to bring those amazing feelings flooding back every time we look through for the rest of our lives. We wish you all the success and happiness in the world.’

 

Marie & Henry Varney

‘All arrived safely – they are wonderful! You’ve captured the children beautifully – thank you. And the family shots outside are fantastic too. I’m absolutely thrilled with them – I’ve been so excited all week about receiving these!! We were so lucky with the weather on the day of the shoot – I think we deserved it after all that rain on our wedding day!’

 

Kirsty & Sam Shepherd

‘Just to say thank you ever so much for the beautiful wedding photographs and for all your help, advice and time. We really couldn’t have asked for a more professional service and a really lovely person. You’re an absolute star and we wish you all the best!’

 

Lisa & Thomas Kitto

‘Just a short note to say a huge thank you for being our photographer, and for being very patient with us when we couldn’t choose between the photos! Everyone has loved the photos (especially us!) and we’ve been proudly showing off the album!’

 

Bess & Paddy Sturman

‘Just a note to say thank you so much for the album and prints. Although it has taken us ages to get round to giving them the attention they deserve, they most certainly do not disappoint. As you know, we already have recommended you warmly to anyone who asks, given how much we enjoyed your presence and sensitivity on the day. The finished product looks superb too and we know we chose the best photographer we possibly could. Many, many thanks again.’

 

Kate & Anthony Brown

‘…Reckon that’s not long at all to have made some decisions re our wedding album: getting it down to just 50 was a colossal task, given that on our first few perusals of the proofs we had ‘shortlisted’ about 80 from each album! Anyway, I reckon we are there: I have to say I ADORE looking back through them again and again, and do so practically every day! As memories of the day fade, the photos become more and more important, and I can’t stress enough how glad I am we ‘splashed out’ on you, and got the very best we could afford!’

 

Claire & Jonathon Beall

‘Our album is absolutely beautiful, even better than we thought it would be. We can’t stop looking at it – or boring other people with it! We’ve decided that we’ll never look so fabulous again so we may as well show it off!

We can honestly say that our wedding day was the best day ever and you were such a big part of that. You weren’t just a photographer – you were a wedding organiser, make-up consultant, counsellor and (by all accounts) children’s entertainer and we said the next day – every wedding needs a Karen! Also you were the only photographer we’ve ever known, where the guests were commenting on how good you were, before they’d seen the photos!’

 

Amanda & Christian Peace

‘Karen, thank you so much for photographing our wedding yesterday – we had an absolutely magical, perfect day and you were fantastic. I think you have two new additions to your fan club with the two fathers (in addition to Chris who was already a member!).

All of the guests said how much they enjoyed you being around and we really can’t wait to see the photos – not that we’re wishing away two weeks in the Seychelles of course!

You really made us relaxed yesterday and it wouldn’t have been the same without you.’

 

Clare & Anthony Quinn

‘Just a small note to say a huge thank you!!! We truly believe you were an absolute star. Thanks also for being there for me on the day, you were a great help. Thanks once again.’

 

Catherine & Ross Webster

‘Great to see you yesterday and what can we say about the photos, absolutely sensational! Better than we could ever have imagined, so thank you so much!’

 

Sophie & Marcus Green

‘Just a quick note to say how pleased Sophie and I are with our photos and album. To convince Sophie that she looks great is nigh on impossible, but even she admits that she looks “alright” which is high praise indeed!

All in all they are a fantastic record of a very happy day for us, and will provide us with many happy memories in the years to come.’

 

Debbie & Toby Norris

‘A very belated note to thank you so much for everything re our beautiful wedding photographs. I know we are biased, but they really are the dogs!

As you know, we were somewhat undecided on the final choices for our album, but after an hour of going over everything with us and offering up all your best advice, we are now in receipt of the most fabulous wedding album ever. Thanks for all your patience and help.

Everyone agreed that you were a marvel on the day itself, organising everyone without ever being ‘in-your-face’, and actually looking like you were enjoying yourself, which is a great testament to how bloody marvellous a photographer you are.’

 

Sue & David Murphy

‘Just a quick note to say thanks very much for our fabulous wedding album and photos. They are absolutely fantastic and we receive endless comments about them! My parents loved their album too! Thanks also for such a professional job throughout the whole process – it made a huge difference to me to know that the wedding photos were in safe hands.

We saw your other article in the Yorkshire Post – I know you’ll never need references, but it you ever do, we’re really happy to give you one!’

 

Sue & Mark Bunyan

‘Thank you so much for our wonderful album! It’s absolutely stunning – way beyond expectation. Everyone who sees it loves it – even Mark’s very exacting great grandfather! Hopefully we’ll manage to see you next time we’re up to thank you in person.

You put every other wedding photographer I’ve seen to shame.’

 

Rachel & Simon Finsbury

‘Thank you for the wonderful photographs that you took of our wedding. They were just what we were after and are a beautiful reminder of our day. So many of our friends and family have been very complimentary about both the photographs and yourself on the day. Best of all, you are the only person who has been able to catch Simon smiling on camera!’

 

Chris & Kelly Johnson

‘Just been showing everyone at work the copy of today’s YEP and telling them that you were the great person who took our wonderful wedding photo’s.

They all saw them and loved them just as much as we all did. I’m not a big show off kind of guy but I did enjoy showing all my colleagues the great shots you took (and of course my beautiful wife). They were all impressed by the natural look of them all.

I know you probably get more satisfaction from the technical side of things (which we don’t appreciate!) but what you gave us was great memories of our special day. We still wish we could do it all again, and have not got close to choosing our final pictures.

Once again congratulations on your latest award, you deserve them all by the way. Keep up the great work and we look forward to seeing you soon(ish) to order another few pages for our album!’

 

Jo & Phil Bennett

‘Thanks for being such great fun on our big day and for capturing so many amazing photos of our day. Even the vicar has asked me for your details in order to recommend you, and all our friends love the photos too!’

 

Jo & Doug Forrester

‘Everyone loves the photos. In fact, general consensus is that they’re the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen… Thank you so much, they’re fab and such a brilliant portrait of the day.’

 

Georgina Cross

‘Cds have arrived safely – the photos look brilliant! Some really great shots and angles – you have definitely made waste look good! Thanks for all your work and flexibility!’

 

Cindy & Shaun Jessop

‘Huge huge thanks for all your time and expertise in putting together our album! The photos are wonderful – it’s no wonder it’s taken us nearly a year to decide!’

 

Hannah & Daryn Lennon

‘The pictures are beautiful!! Thank you so much for everything, we really appreciate it. Now the challenge is to choose the best ones. How we are going to manage that we just don’t know!’

 

Lenore & Anthony Brown

‘We went to see both Anthony’s parents this weekend to show them the proofs, and they love them all. My sister (Steph) wants to come round and look through them all again, and the more I look at them, the better they get. Now the difficult bit, trying to choose ones for the album…’

 

Amber & Andy Shotton

‘What can we say! We asked for memories of our big day, yet you have given us even more. We can practically relive those moments just by looking at your photos. More than we could have dreamed of. All we keep getting is fab, fab, fab, about the Album. My mum and Dad loved it! Everyone is really impressed and says you are a natural!’

 

Katy & Robert Kelly

‘We would like to thank you for the wonderful photographs that you took at our wedding. Thank you also for helping us to keep calm prior to the wedding ceremony and for making our guests feel at ease whilst you photographed them. Robert and I would also like to thank you for creating such a wonderful Wedding Album for us. We love it and can’t stop looking at it. My parents were also thrilled with their album too.

We really enjoyed meeting you and wish you well in all your future endeavours.’

 

Rachel Grattage

‘Fab is not the word, they are fantastic… Thank you so much, they are better than we even hoped for.

We will be in touch with which ones we want and at what sizes as soon as we can but there is a lot here to choose from, we might just have to save up and have them all – do you do wallpaper? We love them, thanks again.’

 

Sarah and Tom Widdup

‘Well first of all sorry it’s taken us so long to decide what we want! What can we say – you shouldn’t make every photo fantastic. And secondly thank you for doing such a wonderful job. I keep pulling the photos out to see how much Charlie has changed; he’s six months now so you can imagine how much he’s grown. It’s so lovely that we have such a wonderful memory of when he was only a few weeks old!

I’ve included a few more reprints from the wedding. People are still ordering in dribs and drabs – it could go on for some time!’

 

Anna Lindley

‘Thanks SO much for the photos! They are amazing and so natural looking – I love the shots you took when we weren’t aware of the camera. Even Clare was really pleased with the results and she is notoriously self-critical when it comes to seeing herself in photos! It was a tough job choosing just one photo to get framed but we managed to agree without a fist-fight.’

 

Yogita Thanki

‘I have just received the portraits through the post of the boys that you took, and they are truly amazing! When I gave the framed photos to my best friend as a birthday present he was left speechless for the first time ever.

Your ability to capture the boys’ true personality in stills is truly inspirational. I have seen plenty of video footage of the boys, but even that medium isn’t able to capture the boys’ cheekiness in the way you have managed to do so.

Thank you once again for allowing me to give the best birthday present ever to my best friend. I have no doubt you will be making many more people happy with your unique creations.’

 

Angela & Simon Young

‘We wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for your hard work in putting together our wedding album and parent’s album. We are absolutely thrilled with the results – which are everything we had envisaged and more! We are enjoying showing it off and reliving our day, and without fail, everyone thinks it is the best wedding album they have ever seen. The photos really do tell a story and capture the mood perfectly.

I don’t know whether we ever told you but you were the only photographer we met and we just knew straight away it was you we wanted – you made us laugh and your unstuffy approach was exactly what we were after. We would have no hesitation in recommending to our friends.’

 

Rachel & Rob McIntosh

‘Firstly a big thank you from me for making the ‘photographic experience’ so pain-free for Robert – I think he was almost enjoying it by the end. I was concerned at first that we’d be divorced by the end of the day, but you managed to put even the most camera shy person at ease so thank you.’

 

Sacha & James Shipwright

‘We just wanted to say a big thank you and just to let you know everyone loved our wedding album. You really made our special day into special memories.’

 

Fiona & Darren Walkley

‘We are absolutely delighted with the photos and feel they capture the atmosphere, elements and emotions of the day perfectly. You’re right it is a difficult job choosing from the proofs for the album. There’s too many amazing shots.’

 

Rachel & Simon Edwards

‘I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the country this weekend to make sure the whole family got to see the album as soon as possible. Everyone is thrilled with it, and says they’ve never seen a more beautiful album or a more stunning set of photographs. All the memories came flooding back (and some of the tears,) and we just can’t believe how you managed to capture the whole day, the flowers, the dresses, the castle, the glorious sunshine, the nerves, the kisses and the laughter.

Thanks again.’

 

Alison & Robert Batty

‘I really wanted to thank you for the whole process – as I am sure I mentioned to you – I hate having my photo taken and you made it really easy – after the initial couple of photographs you just helped me to relax and (in the nicest possible way) forget that you were there. I have so many friends who have said in the past that they missed a huge chunk of their day because of the photos, and that simply didn’t happen at our wedding – it truly was the best day of our lives and the photo’s so accurately capture the relaxed, fun, enjoyable day that it was.

Thank you very much for such an amazing record of the day.’

 

Eleni & Nick Isles

‘Just a short note to say a big thank you for our beautiful wedding photos. We are both so pleased with the album – it really is exactly what we wanted – contemporary, understated and elegant. Everyone that has seen it so far has been bowled over. We’ve had comments like “the best wedding photographs I’ve ever seen” and “it’s like looking at photos from a magazine!

It’s a wonderful reminder of a perfect day. And on the day you were brilliant – you managed to get some amazing shots without ever seeming to get in the way.

No doubt we’ll be in touch very soon with a reprint order. And we’ve got our eye on your beautiful portraits!’

 

Elaine & Sean Harvey

‘We are looking at the pictures all the time & they are just so wonderful. I couldn’t remember all of the day but the pictures bring it all back. Sean thinks they are really good, especially the port drinking session, but then again he is a man! Everyone who has seen them is totally taken aback by them. I think you will be getting many orders from them! What can I say. I knew you were good, but really, not one picture of me looking like a witch! I’m suitably impressed.’

 

Gwenn Kennedy – mother of the bride

‘Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for your services on Rachel and Simons’ wedding day. You really brought the best out of her by making her relax and enjoy her day. Thank you so much once again and if you could bottle your energy you could make a fortune. I for one would buy a crate load!’

 

Jacky & Jack Hunt

‘Just to say very belatedly (because I don’t think we ever have formally) a big thank you for doing a brilliant job on the day and also for the patient way you have dealt with Jack and I and our “simple really” multicoloured dot scheme for reprints, and your subsequent visits. I have looked through the album over and over since you dropped it off, and seeing them beautifully mounted and framed makes the whole day come flooding back – if your pictures are still doing this 18 months down the line then they have indeed done their job!! Choosing the photographer is such an enormous decision, and trusting someone to capture your day and your memories as you remember it yourself is so important, and we’re thrilled that our photos are so original and unusual, but record our day brilliantly!’

 

Richard & Ruth Tonkin

‘We just wanted to write to say thank you for doing the photography at our wedding, and let you know how much we love the album. We’ve been showing it to absolutely everyone, mainly as we keep wanting to look through it ourselves! After meeting you the first time we felt you were the right choice of photographer, and our expectations were exceeded. The (huge number!) of photos you took are superb, really capturing how it was on the day, and I’m sure we’ll be back for more reprints soon! As for the album itself, we really love the way it’s been put together and it’s fantastic seeing the enlargements of the photos and being able to look at all the detail you captured. Thanks again.’

 

Anna & Tom Meek

‘We are really really thrilled with the proofs – all 400 of them. They are just what we wanted, in fact they’re much much better and far exceeded our expectations in every way. You are a marvellous photographer and I’m so pleased that your business is taking off. It was brilliant to have you there on the day. Making me feel relaxed beforehand and generally getting us all organised and feeling comfortable in front of the long lense(s). So many of our guests have commented on your professionalism and unobtrusive style and have been even more impressed when they saw the fruits of your labour. You really captured the atmosphere of the day and have given us a wonderful memento which we will treasure for years to come.’

 

Nick & Michelle Phipps

‘Hi Karen – I was looking through our wedding photos (again!) the other day with someone who hadn’t seen them, and I don’t think I ever sent you a mail to say thank you for creating such good photos!! It’s nearly a year on now (doesn’t time fly!) and the photos are brilliant. Everyone that looks at them says how much they capture the day perfectly. Both Michelle and I saw who we chose for the photography as an important choice to make, and we are so glad we chose you Karen. So thanks again for giving us these great memories we can look at everyday.’

 

Chris Hoare – mother of the bride

‘Fortunately we were able to see the photographs this weekend and we thought the whole collection was absolutely superb! We were all really delighted with them – the difficult thing will be deciding which to choose!

Many people commented on how pleasantly and unobtrusively you did your job. It was a pleasure to meet you and thank you again for such a splendid out come.’

 

Cathy Brydges

‘Love them! Love them! Love them! Love them! Love them! Love them! Love them! They arrived this morning and I keep taking them out and looking through them. You have really captured her. I can’t wait to show them to everyone. Thank you!’

 

Julia & Edward

‘Sorry about the complexity of this reprint order, but I believe it is testament to your superb ability to capture some wonderful moments on film – we just keep coming back for more!

Can I take this opportunity also to thank you for the fantastic service you have given us. Many of our guests and family have commented on your professionalism and enthusiasm on the day, and the very high standard of the resulting photographs and album which truly captures the essence of the wedding. The aftercare you have given us post-wedding has also been flexible and considerate at all times…’

 

Abbie & Miles

‘The photographs are fabulous, everything we’d hoped for and more!’

 

Jennifer Hood

‘Tom and I are absolutely blown away by these fantastic photos!!!!! Karen, we LOVE them! Thanks so much for sending them and I can’t wait to receive the proofs! Definitely book us for another portrait session of colour and black and white when you come back and we look forward to seeing you again!’

 

Charlotte & Carl

‘Believe it or not we stayed up until the early hours of this morning to choose our photos and we have managed it, well we got it down to 41…the floor is now covered in post it notes! Everyone we have shown them to have been amazed at how good they are. Thanks again!’

 

Melanie & Patrick

‘We’re delighted with the photos..in fact, we’ve had a stab at choosing the ones we want and have ended up with over 100!’

 

Tad – www.americandreamsafari.com

‘Karen… received your package of photos and wanted to send along a many thanks for that. They are fabuloso and I mean that. It’s not often I see photos of me wherein I actually see myself as I see myself. That wide-angle lens is way too cool and makes the shots of me driving make it seem like you can really sense the interior of the car the way a passenger might.

Can I put a couple of these up on my website credited to you and linked to your site? Keep me posted on the Elvis project and come on back for another ride.’

 

Leanne & Noel

‘Just a quick note to say thanks very much for the photos. They look amazing! They are a fantastic document of the day, and you’ve managed to make everyone look terrific (no mean feat in many cases). Selecting which ones make it to the album is going to be near impossible.’

 

Louise & Mike

‘Karen – Everyone can’t get over how good the photographs are. I have already given out your website address once today. Tara cried! (Again!) They are truly the best wedding photo’s I have seen, and I’m sure that it’s not because they are mine! Thanks so much.’

 

Fiona & Stuart

‘I know we thanked you already but I thought I’d put it in writing! You were a star on the day, the photos are brilliant.’

 

Gary & Emma

‘Our wedding was the most fantastic day, and your photos captured everything about the whole atmosphere and how much everyone enjoyed celebrating with us. We were adamant that we didn’t want traditional stuffy ‘line up’ photos and your unobtrusive and relaxed style meant nobody stopped having fun to have a picture taken. Our album records every moment of the wedding day perfectly, from getting ready at home to the live band and dancing late into the evening. We know we’ll never get tired of looking at the photos, or seeing new things about the day which we were too busy to notice at the time.’

 

Ian & Sophie

‘Just a very, very late note to say a ‘huge’ thank you for all your help before, during and after our special day! All the extra thought really was most appreciated and we’re very chuffed with the final album. Wishing you every success for the future career and happiness.’

 

Liz & Steve

‘A note to thank you for doing a fantastic job on our wedding day and for the fantastic photos. We’re really pleased with the proofs and our families are impressed as well. You really fitted in well to our special day and you were great fun.

Everybody has asked who you were – some thought you were a friend of the family! Both Steve and I are really chuffed we chose you and your type of photography. We’ve got some great photographs to remember the day by.’

 

Julia & Julian

‘Thank you so much for being our photographer. We had an amazing wedding day, and we really enjoyed having you there. The photos are really beautiful – we couldn’t have hoped for better, so thank you very much. We have been recommending you to everyone because you made the day even more special – thank you. We will be in touch soon once we have decided on which photos we want – not an easy task!’

 

Olivia & Pete

‘Our wedding day was amazing – really the best day of my life. I didn’t want it to end but your photographs mean I can relive the day over and over again. You’ve captured the story of the day in the most beautiful artistic photographs I’ve ever seen. We’re both so pleased with them and are having a terrible time choosing which ones for the album because we want them all. You were fantastic on the day; professional but friendly, organised but not intrusive. Half the time I didn’t even know you were there. Thanks for everything.’

 

Sarah & Nick

‘A huge thank you for such stunning photographs. You’ve captured our wedding day in a truly unique and natural way – we’re chuffed to bits with the pictures. Our only problem now is choosing our album from so many fantastic shots! Last but not least, thanks also for such a friendly and personal service – you really blended into the day and put the guests and ourselves at ease. Thank you!’

 

Carla & Vincent

‘Vincent and I love your wonderful photos of our wedding and can’t stop looking at them. Everyone is really impressed by the way you managed to capture the atmosphere of the day. What we love the most is eye for detail – you have given us a fantastic souvenir of all the small things we took so much time to organise, but didn’t really have time to appreciate fully on the day. I will definitely recommend you to everyone I hear is getting married.’

 

Plus One Project

‘Karen has been involved with the Plus One Project for teenage parents for a number of weeks and her skills as a photographer are incredible. Karen’s communication and people skills are excellent. Everyone involved in the photographic exhibition has been delighted with the results and it has been a pleasure to work with Karen. Working with and communicating with young people is a skill in it’s own right and it has been a pleasure to be part of the process of showing young parents’ in a positive way.

Good luck and all the very best for your future. I have no doubts it will be very bright.

Thank you.’

 

Kelly & Keith

‘Keith and I would like to thank you so very much for the photos you have taken for us. They are absolutely fantastic – we are still trying to decide which ones we want enlarging. Also thank you for making us feel relaxed when taking them, and letting us all have fun. You have made our wedding memories very, very special. We hope you enjoyed our day too. We did, the best day of our lives. We enjoyed every minute of it!’

 

Liz & Paul Hutton

‘Many thanks Karen for such a wonderful memory of an amazing day. The photos are fantastic and you were just brilliant on the day – you kept us both laughing (it’s amazing that my make-up ever got finished!) It’s also a testament to how discreet you were that, when showing the photos around, so many people have said that they hadn’t realised that we’d had an official photographer. You’re a star!’

 

Jenni White

‘Just to say thank you for the wonderful job you made of the portraits of our daughter Amy. You have managed to capture her perfectly and certainly made her feel special. Thank you for the time you took to make her feel at ease with yourself and the camera, this is evident in the results. Only problem now is her ambition to be a model! Now look what you’ve started!’
