Customer Testimonials

Karla was the photographer for our wedding in Aug 2008. The service she provided was above and beyond what we could have wished for. The manner in which she interacted with our guests was truly professional while still being relaxed and informal in keeping with our wedding. The photographs were beautiful and perfectly captured the spirit of the day. We would recommend Karla to anyone. She has given us wonderful photographs of our wedding and it was a pleasure to have her there with us on our special day.

Headshots - lovely small studio. Just perfect size. Karla was lovely, had a great chat, easy going and knew how to get the pictures she wanted. Would def recommend - no stress, no worries. Headshots arrived on time and as promised. 100% Efficient and Brilliant.

Karla was an absolute pleasure to work with. My time spent shooting with her was an absolute pleasure, as she was confident, friendly and made me feel fully at ease (unlike some photographers I have worked with). On top of all that, she took some exceptional photographs that i felt captures a side of me that previous photographers had not. I was very pleased with the finished product, and would throughly recommend her to anyone (due to her ability to make you feel at ease and natural in front ofg the camera) and hope to work with her again myself in the near future!!

I wanted a shoot in order to get some new headshots, with some studio shots and some outdoors. I found Karla to be very thorough, and didnt feel rushed or pressured to keep to the set time. I was really pleased that she was able to provide a studio setting, but was also happy to take some of my shots outside, as requested. She was warm and friendly, and i felt relaxed, which meant that my shots were more natural looking.

Karla was my wedding photographer - she was absolutely brilliant from start to finish! I love her style of photography - she got the important shots but also the quirky, informal ones that were taken when no-one thought she had the camera on them. After seeing my piccies, one of my guests has now booked her for their own wedding! Karla listened to what I wanted from my wedding shots and delivered exactly what I had hoped for.

Karla did both my husband's&mine actors headshots along with our Wedding Day. She is SO easy going&professional. We were guided by her experience&desire to also have fun&experiment in both circumstances . After I'd been in her studio 5 mins I was relaxed&having fun&that made for great natural shots. The price was good&the service was speedy.At no point did I have to chase Karla. I'd recommend her for either occasion because I was more than happy on both.
