Wedding Testimonials

I just came home this evening to receive a beautiful hand written thank you note and testimonial from Eugenie and Craig (some of their wedding photographs are in the previous blog entry or click here to view their wedding collection). Receiving such positive feedback from clients and family is the best feeling; not only professionally, as it’s important to other couples who are thinking of booking to read a first-hand testimonial, but also to know that you’ve exceeded expectations makes the job immensely rewarding. As well as this, the wedding photographs endure long after the cake has been eaten and the dress packed away and the images taken remain the one true permanent reminder of your wedding day, so their unveiling is always quite emotional – for me too!

If you’re planning your wedding (as many of you will be now Christmas is over) and you are considering several wedding photographers right now, looking at previous clients’ feedback will help you decide if you will be as happy with your wedding photographs. Here’s what Eugenie and Craig have to say:

"We just wanted to write to thank you so whole-heartedly for taking the most stunning photographs of our incredible wedding day! As soon as we met you initially we totally felt at ease and knew that we would have amazing shots by which to remember our special day.

You are a consummate professional; with an exceptional eye for detail and the organisational skills of a ‘super-power’ nation! We were so impressed by your portfolio and ethos and incredibly excited about seeing the results of your hard work. Viewing them on a big screen and in such a beautiful studio was the cherry on the icing of the cake!!! We can’t wait to display these works of art in our home and have a constant reminder, permanently captured, of our very perfect day! Thank you so much again!!"

KIlworth House Wedding Photography - Eugenie and Craig

Eugenie and Craig, who were married at the end of November this year at Kilworth House in Leicestershire, came to the studio at the weekend to view their wedding images for the first time. The studio is a beautiful new space courtesy of Pretty Flamingo, where Susan treats her clients to Indian Head Massage and makeover sessions. With its heated flooring, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and warm interior, it’s an incredibly relaxing oasis of calm – and Mirror Imaging’s clients can also enjoy viewing their images post wedding or portrait sessions, with refreshments or even a glass of fizzy, as well as look through the amazing frame and canvas selections we have.

Eugenie and Craig had 226 final images – I always edit the final selection of wedding photographs tightly so that there is plenty to choose from but it won’t overwhelm you. Two previous couples have said they loved every single one of their wedding photographs and would be happy with my choice for their album, which is incredibly gratifying and would be great to achieve with every couple’s wedding. Eugenie and Craig seemed very delighted too, and the unveiling of the photographs is certainly one of the most enjoyable elements to being a wedding photographer.

Their full selection of wedding images are now available to view online here and a small number of wedding photographs are below, as well as the images we previewed in our 26th November blog. If you are a friend or family member of Eugenie and Craig, I hope you enjoy looking through them over the Christmas season and choosing your favourites! And please feel free to email me with any feedback – as other couples who are thinking of booking always find this valuable. If you would like to order, or find out more information, there’s some beautiful print, framing and canvas options available from £20 to £350. Please give me a call 07968 159465 or email me and I will call you back over the holidays, as we’re in the process of streamlining our ordering system online, and I will instead personally deal with any orders or enquiries.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year.

Wedding Photography on Facebook!

I seemed to be one of the last amongst my friends to join the online networking site Facebook in the Summer of 2007, and it has since proved very addictive! I’ve also found it incredibly valuable to meet new people who may be getting married or would like some portraits of family and new arrivals. Mirror Imaging therefore has its very own business page as of July 2008, now with just over 50 members, where you can view all my latest work, leave me messages, meet other customers, add a comment to the discussion board, write a review or just become a fan!


Facebook is a brilliant way of reaching other people and learning about products and services, and it is especially useful as a Nottingham wedding photographer, as I’m able to display where I am based and show off my portfolio as well! Personal recommendations are always the best way to meet new clients, and when a couple is entrusting their wedding to you, it must be more reassuring to know that their friends were delighted with their photographs too. If you haven’t already become a fan of Mirror Imaging, I would very much appreciate your support, so please visit me at Mirror Imaging on Facebook or do a search within facebook for Mirror Imaging. Thank you!

The Wedding Guide

Anyone planning their wedding day at the moment will have no doubt checked out a few wedding fairs for ideas, or they intend to… they are good fun and a huge source of inspiration. There are quite a few wedding fairs planned locally in the new year and The Wedding Guide in Nottinghamshire, Derby and Lincolnshire can tell you where the latest wedding fairs are and on what date. Jayne and her team will be out in force handing out their Wedding Guide books to brides-to-be, which details local suppliers and venues. Mirror Imaging features in the January issue as the Nottingham wedding photographer of the Real Weddings section, where you can read about how other couples created their dream day. Your complimentary copy of The Wedding Guide is available at the wedding fairs listed on their website http://www.weddings-nottsderby.co.uk/

Wedding Photography Testimonials

Feedback from clients after they receive their wedding photography or portrait photographs is always very welcome and I was therefore really pleased to receive a testimonial from Catherine and Mark last week following their wedding in Melbourne, Derbyshire in the middle of October. Thank you both for providing this recommendation, which other couples will hopefully find valuable.

“Mark and I just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful pictures you took at our wedding in October. We are so pleased with them and feel that they captured the day perfectly. Thank you for all your hard work on the day and also all you did beforehand to plan and discuss our requirements to ensure that the day went as smoothly as it did, and that we had the photos we had wished for. We have already recommended you to friends who are planning their wedding and we're sure they will be as pleased with their precious wedding memories as we are with ours!"
