What my couples say 

‘Me and my Husband cannot recommend Karen enough. Karen’s clear communication from the start was amazing! Karen’s professionalism on the day and her expertise was second to none. She went above and beyond throughout the day to help me out. Karen also helped keep kids entertained in the morning while I got dressed. We recently got our pictures back and I can honestly say they are outstanding. Such a talented woman, they are more than I ever could have imagined. So many beautiful shots that I didn’t realise were even taken. So friendly and had us laughing all day. She felt more like family than just your photographer. We can’t wait to have Karen take other pictures for our family ❤️ thanks again for everything, the Gibsons xx (Karen and Darren, Gailes Hotel)

‘Karen you were absolutely incredible!! We cannot recommend and thank you enough. You were amazing at capturing our wedding day at the Waterside from start to finish and I’m beyond excited to see more of the amazing pictures. You were so friendly and funny and patient. Thank you so much’ (Gemma and Darren, The Waterside Hotel)

‘Karen was our wedding photographer and we couldn’t be happier with the photos and the overall experience! She’s amazing with kids and managed to make us feel at ease throughout the wedding. Would definitely recommend her to all my friends and family and anyone who’s looking for a brilliant photographer!’ (Tina and Daniel, The Carlton)

‘You are one talented lady! she did an amazing job at making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the day.  Karen is very welcoming, chatty and friendly she made my morning getting ready stress free and relaxed. I highly recommend Karen if your looking for a photographer.  Thank you’  (Mr & Mrs Brown, Marine Troon)

‘We had our wedding a couple of weeks ago and had the absolute pleasure of working with Karen, you are just amazing. Myself and my husband were extremely comfortable when getting our pictures taken, you blended in so well we almost forgot you were taking our pictures half the time. Thank you for giving us the most wonderful memories of our wedding day. You genuinely are such a lovely woman and deserve 5 stars in everything xxx’ (Claire and Andrew, The Waterside Hotel)

‘We had Karen as our wedding photographer in November 2021 at the Lochside house hotel. Karen arrived at 9am and was absolutely brilliant from the moment she got there. I have 2 very small children and she was so kind and patient with us all. She even helped get them ready. She spent the full day with us and all our family and was so kind all throughout the day. Would highly recommend Karen. She was like a part of the family’. (Heather and Matthew, Lochside House Hotel)

‘We had Karen as our wedding photographer and to say the absolute least she was fantastic! She put everyone at ease getting their photos took and had us all laughing in no time at the preparation photos. Karen goes above and beyond and even helped my mum get me in my dress with looping the loops round the tiny wee buttons. Karen also then helped me when I had a dress emergency and she safety pinned me in!!! Absolute star! So many of my family have said how much they loved Karen and her bubbly nature. 100000% recommend. If I could do it all again Karen would be my first call to ask again. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. Karen listened to me when I said I hated getting my photo taken and captured the pure, raw and beautiful intimate moments. Thank you Karen.’ (Morgan and Darren , Busby Hotel)

‘What do you recommend about Karen Simpson photography? EVERYTHING! From booking, to payment, to getting to know us, to the lead up, and all through our entire day, Karen was Phenomenal! We cannot recommend her enough, and will be recommending her to everyone we know, forever. Everybody has been raving about how amazing her work was on our wedding day, at Dalduff Farm 12.11.22. What an absolutely phenomenal job. Even just from the couple of pics we’ve already seen. Karen has perfectly captured who we are, how happy we were on our wedding day, and how happy we will be for the rest of our lives. She has helped us create a lifetime of memories, and we truly cannot thank her enough. Thank you for everything Karen!’ (Gregor and Abby, Dalduff Farm) 

‘We had Karen photograph our wedding this month. When we first met her, it was like walking into an old friends house we’d known for years! (SUPER FRIENDLY!) Her photo’s are incredible, we had sample pictures to share the night of our wedding, and our full beautiful album 2 weeks later. The photo’s really are something else, she goes out her way to get the perfect shot of everyone, including all the kids! During the wedding day, Karen went above and beyond in every way, I was over emotional and she just sat and had a chat with me and made me feel so much better, she ran things to other rooms for us and even took our little flower girl to get her hair done! Did I mention how amazing our photos were?’ (Ashleigh and Nicole, The Waterside)

‘Karen was more than just our wedding photographer this weekend at the Lochside Hotel, she pretty much became part of the family. She helped us get dressed and organised in the morning and kept me sane when I was stressing out. She is literally hilarious too!Her photos are incredible, we had some photos literally that night to share with family and friends and they are perfect. So excited to see the rest of our pictures. Thank you again Karen. We’re both missing you and your chat already’  (Gemma and James, Lochside House Hotel)
