Kind Words

“Thank you so much Mark for giving us the most beautiful photographs that totally capture the happiest day of our lifes, I just love them.  Thank you too Donna for putting them together so tastefully in such a gorgeous album.  Every person whom has seen them has been hugely impressed and agrees that they are just totally us!!  Can’t thank you enough.  It has been a huge pleasure meeting and working with you both.  What you do is so very personal, beautiful and professional.  Huge thank you again!!  P.S  The album is about to have a huge showing in Aberdeen next week, can’t wait to show it off!!”

Bryan and Helen

“Oh my gosh, we have just looked through our gorgeous wedding album sent today. Even more amazing than we could have ever imagined! Thank you ever so much to the both of you for all of your hard work, it truly is stunning!”

Justine & Tim Elliott

“Mark Archibald stood out for his exceptional talent for his craft, his enthusiasm, his natural and personable style of working, and his ability to capture perfectly the most touching and special moments of our day. His outstanding photographs speak for themselves and he evidently gets great joy from his work. We were delighted with his professionalism combined with a totally personal approach: he made us feel fantastic on the day and as relaxed as it is possible to be at such a time! Many of our guests commented afterwards on what a brilliant photographer he was. Archibald Photography vastly exceeded all expectations. We love you, Mark and Donna! Thank you for our amazing photographs.”

Lorna & Declan Geller

 “Just received our album and its amazing! We love it, love it, love it. The pictures look even better(if that’s possible) in the album – the design is just superb! Been texting all our friends and family to come and have a look over the weekend. Cried when I saw some of the pictures – it just takes us back to the day like you wouldn’t believe, because the album tells the story so well. Lots of laughing, lots of emotion. Thank you so much to the both of you – the service you provide is second to none! We wish you all the luck for the future and I’m sure we’ll be in touch soon for canvas shots etc when our building site/house is ready for wall pictures.”

Donna & Warren Palacci

“I cannot even begin to tell you how pleased we are with the pictures! Mark somehow made a group of self-admitted non-photogenic people look like movie stars. I’m not sure how he did it, but we’ve been having fun showing them off! The style of his photography is very impressive–not the usual boring wedding pictures, that’s for sure. Also his manner made this ‘photography uncomfortable’ gal a lot less nervous. He really got along great with everybody, and my Mum was talking for days about ‘how nice the photographer was’. I have to admit I was a bit nervous picking a photographer while being an ocean away–but what a wonderful surprise finding you two!”

Jonathan and Wendy Winkel

“Our album has arrived – yippee! It’s just breathtaking. Thank you so much! I can’t believe how much better the photos look. Its one thing to see them on the computer, but it’s quite another to see them printed so beautifully on the book – just gorgeous. It’s absolutely stunning and we really can’t wait until the weekend to show it off! The perfect keepsake of such an emotional and beautiful time in our lives, we will treasure it forever. Thank you so much!”

Pamela & Steven MacGregor

“Thank you so, so much – tell Mark that I was in tears when I had a look through the pics…they are totally amazing and I was so happy. It’s just so amazing to have all the day there to look back on. There’s just so many that I really love and are really very special, and ones that I thought ‘Oh, I’m so glad he took that’…My parents are over the moon with them too. But please thank him so much…we will treasure these forever.”

Vicki & Steven Low

“Happy New Year to you both and your family. Sorry this note is so late in coming to you but its been a bit hectic since we returned from our honeymoon. We both just wanted to say thank you so much to Mark for being so brilliant on the day of the wedding, he is obviously blessed with the patience of a saint! But seriously, he was just great to have around on the day, made us feel really comfortable and for someone like myself who does not particularly enjoy having their picture taken that was fab!! We are really looking forward to seeing the end result and are keeping an eye on the web-site as we move up the line. Will speak to you soon, but once again thank you so much!”

Anne and Mark Leishman

“Just a very quick message for Mark before we go off on honeymoon today. We didn’t get a chance to catch up with him before he left on Saturday night. Mark – Our wedding day turned out to be everything we hoped for (even singing bring me sunshine seemed to work!!) but we wanted to thank you for being really fantastic and supportive on the day. Your laid back, unintrusive and fun attiude really reflected the feel we wanted for the day, and lots of our guests commented on the very same thing. Also glad you never impailed yourself when balancing on the railings!! Thank you so much and can’t wait to see the photo’s in a few weeks.”

Patrick and Linda Bramich

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the fantastic wedding album – we love it! I will feel happy and proud to show it to friends and family for years to come. You both do a super job – what a team. I certainly will never hesitate in recommending your services to anybody I know.”

Kirsty & Andrew Bailie

“We got the proofs last night and LOVE them. I was going to call Mark last night but the time ran away with us, we have been all round showing them off!!!! I will call him over the weekend to let him know how pleased we are. Thanks again, we are going to be hard pushed to pick.”

Kirsty and Carl McWilliam

“Thank you so much for our photo album. Absolutely spot on! We will be having a holiday in Scotland next year, late in the year and would love to pop in and have a glass of wine with you both to say thanks.”

Mags & Chris Gibson

“Just thought I’d let you know that the CD arrived and we are absolutely delighted with the results. Tell Mark that he achieved his mission….. We will probably be looking at the Platinum package but it’s very hard to pick just 45! Thanks again, it was so lovely looking at them, it was like reliving the day over again.”

Beth and Stuart Loughray

 “Just picked up your message, the photos are absolutely fantastic and they’ve totally captured the day exactly how I wanted …. thank you thank you thank you …. The day didn’t go according to plan at all and it was fabulous to at least have the photographs I wanted. Words can’t express how delighted we are!”

Fiona and Colin Duffy

“Hope you are Ok, Scott and I are back from honeymoon now, back down to earth! We just wanted to say thanks to Mark for doing a brilliant job on our wedding day. We didn’t want a photographer who was going to be pushy and regimented, we were after someone who made us feel at ease and made us smile. Mark went about his work in a way that went way beyond our expectations, fast and efficient, and not at all obtrusive. He even managed to get us to feel really comfortable in front of the camera, not something me and Scott like doing! We just can’t wait to see the proofs! Thanks again!”

Jillian and Scott Millar

“Just to say that Mark was exceptional. Couldn’t have asked for better. A real credit to your company. He helped make the day the huge success it was. Please pass on both mine and my wife’s greatest thanks for all he did. Thank you.”

Luke and Martina Moore

“We are just back from honeymoon, but we just wanted to thank you and Mark for all your hard work, particularly with the horrendous weather conditions. Mark was great on the day and everybody commented on how relaxed and unobtrusive he was. We are looking forward to seeing the pictures ….. Thanks again – looking forward to hearing from you.”

Carolyn and Jon Fitzpatrick

 “Many, many thanks for photographing our wedding at the Atholl Palace on Friday. You put us and all our guests totally at ease, which was just what we wanted – no fuss!!! I am really looking forward to seeing all the wonderful piccies and I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work – it’s not easy keeping a Scots/Welsh wedding under control!

Dawn & Euan Burford

“Please pass onto Mark that literally everyone we have spoken to has commented on how good he was – and they’ve not even seen his pictures yet! He really does have the perfect personality for the job!”

Nicola & Alex Hamilton

“I would like to say that Mark was fantastic, every single guest said the same. He was brilliant. We are really looking forward to seeing the photos. Thanks again.”

Charlotte Wootton

“Thanks for your note, the album arrived last week. We’re both delighted with it and shall treasure it for a long time to come. It brings back many happy memories of Jillian and Scott’s big day. Thanks to you both for your skills, efforts and attention over the past few months. Good luck to you and your family in the future.”

Lorraine and Peter Couston

“I have to give a big thank you to Mark as the pics are amazing. I am so happy with them. I can’t wait to see the finished album.”

Then later:

“Thanks for getting back to me and passing my comments onto Mark. Everything I said is well deserved and more. All our guests were commenting on how good he was and how relaxed they felt round about him, which is good as that’s exactly what we wanted.”

Kerry and Gordon Edwardson

“Sorry we haven’t been in touch before now but we just wanted to say thank you very much to both of you for a fantastic job. We really love our album – it is exactly what we wanted and Mark was great on the day (although that seems so long ago now!). I did intend sending a card but Eilidh is keeping me very busy and who knows when I would eventually manage it so I thought this would be easier. Anyway – thanks again and best wishes to you both.”

Mhairi & Eugene McQuillan

“I would also like to thank you for the un-intrusive way in which you organised the photography on the day. Thanks again, I look forward to hearing from you.”

Rachel & Brian Eadie

 “The wedding was a fantastic day and was made so much easier by yourself and the relaxed manner in which the photographs were taken”

Kevin and Mhari Edgar

“We love the photos and can’t wait to receive our album. You never know, this time next year we may need your services for baby photos!!”

Rob & Rachel Stevenson

“Thank you for your speedy organisation and for Marks work on the day. A number of people have commented on how lovely our photographer was, how relaxed and unobtrusive he was, and Dave and I have to agree completely with them. Thanks again, we’ll be in touch soon.”

Helen and Dave Crow

 “Sorry it’s taken me so long, but just to say many thanks to Mark for the lovely wedding album. Kenny and I are both really pleased with the final results, and it’s winging its way around family and friends as we speak.  Thanks again to you and Mark for all your help.”

Karen and Kenny Rees

“Mark & I really want to thank you for making our day so special. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and part of that was down to you. It’s really hard to believe it’s all over now but I guess this is where the fun really begins.”

And later:

“The parents album and all the prints arrived and are all stunning ! We can’t wait to see ours !!!”

Laura and Mark Meney

“We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed having Mark as the photographer at our daughter Lynn’s wedding on Monday 30th May. We could not have asked for a better choice. Lynn and Lewis had wanted an easy relaxed photographer, and that is just what we go. Lots of people commented on how obliging he was, and I only knew he was around when I watched the video. So unobtrusive, which was much appreciated.”

Carol Campbell (mother of Lynn Turner)

“Thanks so much for sending that link – much appreciated – I’ve got friends in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand who have now been able to view the photos because of it!!! i am absolutely in love with the photography – I honestly can’t convey how pleased I am with it – thank you!!! It’s gonna take us a good wee while to finally pick the ones for the album tho’ so I’ll need to get back to you on that, if that’s ok?!?!?”

And later:

“Just to say I got the albums today and I’m delighted – haven’t opened my dad’s or Darren’s mum’s one yet (they want to open it themselves!) but what I have seen is lovely!!! I adore my album – the way the photos are laid out is totally perfect!!! We’re still to order individual prints for ourselves – yet another thing we haven’t really got round to but we’ll do it soon i promise!!!”

Leonie and Darren Young

“To Donna & Mark – I trust that you are well and making beautiful pictures. So sorry for the delay in getting back to you, it has been quite a tough job choosing from the tremendous selection of photos we have available to us. The prints certainly capture the spirit of the whole day. To this end, we have decided to upgrade our package.”

Nyree and Andrew Bell

“Many thanks for our album, we were delighted with it. Please tell Mark a big thank you, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone.”
