You just know "IT" when you see "IT" and from the moment we looked on Karens website we knew she was "IT".......Karen is a friendly, bubbly, vibrant person and we knew instantly that she was the right photographer to tackle our bright vibrant some what unusual wedding! So we booked Karen to be the photographer on our special day and she has been great! Nothing has been too big or too small for her. She has a wonderful skill of taking photos to suit different couples personalities, if you look at her albums you will find that no couples wedding pictures are alike they each show each couples wedding and personalities differently, Karen doesn't just take pictures she has the ability to capture movement and life in her stills which is a great skill to have. Her skill at what she does is just second to none and out of 800 plus photos we can honestly can say there is not one picture which we dont like. Everyone has commented on what a fabulous album we have and it is all down to Karen. We and our families got on with Karen like a house on fire on the day and she blended in so well we hardly knew she was there, we met with Karen a week before the wedding at our venue and she went through everything with us in detail in order to ensure she would capture the day as we wanted. She was full of advice and made us feel at ease and you can really tell that weddings arent just a job to her but a genuine passion! Our photos were ready within a week to look at and she even managed to put some on my facebook page the very next day which we were able to look at on our honeymoon, which was a lovely touch from her. You truly feel like a special couple to Karen opposed to just another number on a ever lasting conveyor belt.We would urge everyone to take a moment to look at Karens albums, and then book her for your special day as she is perfect and you wont be disappointed. Thank you Karen you were a dream to work with and have produced us with a album we could only have dreamt of and we will cherish it forever!
The wonderful and fabulous Karen McGowran what can I say..........she had been recommended on a wedding blog by Annabel Beeforth, so I looked on her site and fell totally in love with her pictures and style. Karen was amazing on the day and made us feel completely relaxed we didn't even know she was there. All our pictures were ready for viewing within a week, although amazingly a few were ready for us that night. We loved Karen so much I booked a Cherish the Dress shoot too, we had a great time and a really good laugh...........I would totally recommend to everyone to have this shoot, the pictures are fabulous!!!!!! And lastly we had a great day at the beach shooting family pictures too and once again the pictures are great. Don't take our word for it have a look!!!!!Not only did we meet a great photographer but made a great friend too.
Karen is full of life - a real bubbly kind who loves to hear all about your wedding plans and ideas and talk dresses, yet she has the skill to blend peacefully into the background on your big day too. Both Philp and I found her such fun to be around on our day and felt we couldn't have made a better choice. Thankfully too, Karen is one of those Photographers who goes out of her way to get a few finished sample photos to you within only a few days immediately after the wedding, which was great for us, as I think I might have had to beat her door down if not and demand them on the spot. I was just TOO excited about seeing them! I can't tell you how many amazing comments I've received about THAT photograph of me in my wedding dress - people say Karen has captured me looking like an old Hollywood film star - truly fabulous!
Karen we are so glad that you were able to capture our day. Our friends and family still talk about how amazing you and your pictures are and I am always happy to talk and show the pictures off! My mum loves her parents album and always carries it around in her bag. You have such talent and its great to watch it grow with all the weddings that you photograph.
Thank you so much for taking our wedding photos, we are in love with every single one of them and they fill and add sparkle to our home and our friends and families homes, they are like a little piece of magic xxxx
My house is full of your photos and got two crackers on my desk at work that make me want to do it all again every day. Thanks so much for being part of our day, you really have a true talent for photography and wish you all the best for 2011, much love xx
Craig and I feel privelidged to have had you as our wedding photographer, your work is amazing and it goes without saying you are a lovely person. We both so enjoyed having our photos taken, you and Neil made it great fun and for Craig that's saying something! Our photos are everything we wanted them to be and a whole lot more.
Can't thank you enough for our photos, not only amazing pics but you were a pleasure to have around too, would have liked you as a guest if you weren't our photographer!
As you know I cried through most of the preparation of our wedding and nearly didnt make it down the aisle! But you were fantastic through all of the preparation and I can truly say our day wouldnt have been as magical as it was without you! Thank you so much xxx
