Stewart Murrell: "Shona was the photographer at my wedding and was superb. Shona spent all day with the wedding party and was amazingly low-profile - each and every photograph was natural and discrete. The photographs were amazing and well presented - I would have no hesitation in using Shona again for either for business or pleasure."

Claire Nesbitt: "We were delighted with Shona's coverage of our wedding. She was almost invisible all day yet managed to capture the essence of every moment perfectly, even producing wonderful portrait shots of our most camera-shy family members. Shona worked quickly and discretely allowing us to enjoy our day without standing around waiting for photographs. At every point she was in the perfect place to capture the moment and we barely noticed. Our photos were all ready when we returned from honeymoon and the production process was fast and efficient. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shona "

"Thanks very much for including our photographs on your website. They’re so lovely so we’re happy to be able to show them off in this way. We’ve been back to Seaham Hall to stay a couple of times and noticed they have a photographer’s album on display which isn’t a patch on your photographs of our wedding.
Please feel free to use our photographs and testimonial anywhere you like.
Kind regards
Joanne"

Tim and Ailsa Pain Wedding
11 January 2012
bride and groom millenium bridge Newcastle and Baltic

Testimonial via my Linked in Profile.
“Shona was an excellent choice for our wedding photographs. We didn't want the traditional wedding photographer, and asked Shona to take mostly informal shots of the day rather than the normal set piece photographs. Shona immediately understood this and the result were nothing short of fantastic. We felt we were commissioning an artist rather than booking a wedding photographer. We would not hesitate to recommend Shona to others for all kinds of photography (in fact we have on several occasions!).” October 18, 2011

Testimonial via my Linked in Profile:
“Shona was superb--we hired her to take photographs for a calendar. The subjects were ill or bereaved people. Shona's sensitivity, professionalism and end results were everything we could have wished for. Everyone was delighted with the results, and excellent value for money. Despite a very tight deadline, the photographs were creative and just what we wanted. Definitely would hire her again and recommend her!” January 26, 2010

bridesmaid and confetti

Testimonial via my Linked in Profile. I also Photographed Kay and David for their company web site The ME Group and it was nice to see them both again at the Josie Dragonfly trust Charity Ball in November 2011 at Close House where I was photographing those attending.
“I was an entrepreneurial trainer/mentor to Shona in the late 90's where her individuality, creativity and quality of photography really grabbed my attention, standing out from many others. I have hired her for personal (i.e. wedding) and also business/professional shoots. She becomes invisible during social events and therefore captures a perfect narrative, and for professional shoots, she intuitively captures your essence.” January 28, 2010
