Some Kind Words
We wanted to take the opportunity to not only thank yourself and Josh for your help on the day, but also for your professionalism, warmth and genuine attention to detail. I knew you were good when we had our first shoot but you took it to a whole other level on Saturday! Not having the weather on our side didn’t deter you, and the way you took on the challenge to get the best shots whilst still giving us time with our guests was so well done and thoughtful, I don’t know how you did it! All our guests have commented on what a great guy you are and how lovely the slideshow was, and we both feel very proud to be able to call you our photographer. Oh and before I forget, the memory booth was superb and Josh did an awesome job, please pass on our thanks. Thank you for being such a dedicated professional and a genuinely wonderful person with it
STACY & MARTIN
Thank you so much for the photographs. I can’t put in to words how special they are to us. You truly captured everything we wanted. When we first met, I could tell you would deliver something special, but you have exceeded my expectations. You are a true professional and credit to your field. Many thanks! MRS HESP
We are so impressed with your work Alistair, with your professionalism you were able to produce beautiful photos that we will cherish for a lifetime. How you managed to get so many beautiful shots without us realising amazes me but we are so grateful for your ability to make our special day last forever in photos. KERRY & SEAN HERDMAN
Alistair was by far the best photographer ever, not only are the pictures he took captured of us at St. Paul’s Cathedral unique and one of a kind, he was a pleasure to have as part of our special day, over the year and a half of communication from booking, our pre shoot, and then chats on the phone right up until the wedding day! He was like a friend. He is organised and ensures he captures the best parts of your day! Thanks Alistair for being such an amazing photographer so glad we found you! CHARLI & ANDREW BAILEY
Ali photographed our wedding at the end of January. I wasn’t particularly looking forward to having a camera intruding into the day but Ali did it so well and followed our brief to not take too long with the photos and the results are amazing. We needed to pick a favourite photo, for a canvas print, and it has been very hard. We received our album last week and it is fantastic, it really captures the whole day and is so well laid out and presented. I would thoroughly recommend Ali if you’re looking for a fantastic photographer. Need I say any more! SHELLEY & ROB DAVIES
We cannot thank you enough. We genuinely feel that without you our day would have not been the same, to us it felt magical and you helped us to capture those moments for eternity. The day went by so quickly, there was so much going on and it was impossible for us to be everywhere at once. You were our “fly on the wall”, your amazing images helped us to piece the day together as our hazy memories settled. You have captured our guests with the facial expressions we know them for, Paul finally looks relaxed in front of the camera and I look stunning!! Not an easy feat chasing round a 3 year old!! I have been so poorly for the last 18 months and your images for the first time have made me forget that. I look full of life, energy and happiness. We had so many compliments on the day about your work and have received thank you cards since (where have people found the time??) saying how stunning your slide show was. KERRY SALTER
Alistair has done a fantastic job at capturing our wedding day. As a keen photographer myself, alistair had his work cut out to produce something that would impress me, but I think he has achieved it. I would highly recommend ideal imaging, and we hope to be using Alistair again at some point in the future. Thank you alistair for producing everlasting memories. EMMA & EOIN WESTMAN
From the very beginning we asked a lot of Alistair! We asked him to travel hundreds of miles, packed a wedding & engagement shoot into two days rather than 3 months and we also asked him to brave the particularly ‘inclement’ weather in Northumberland. (On a weekend with -20 wind chill on Hadrian’s wall and 5 feet of snow in most of the UK!)
Some would say this was too much to ask but Alistair rose to every challenge with humour, professionalism, patience & creativity. He went way above and beyond any normal call of duty in the time he spent with us. If we had to sum Alistair up as a photographer and as a person it would be that he is thoughtful, considerate, a perfectionist, full of energy and he brings the best out of everybody with ease.
After all the planning, preparations, laughter, smiles, nerves and after all the credit card bills have been paid. One thing endures and it’s the wonderful memories that your fantastic photos bring vividly to life. Alistair’s personality shines through in his work which is a rare quality.Our heartfelt thanks. VICKI & RICHARD NEEDHAM
Alistair was a first class professional from start to finish as he guided us from the pre-wedding shots through to completion of a product of the highest quality. As a photographer, Alistair is entirely aware of the precious and privileged task that is involved in taking photographs on a day of such profound significance. He guided us through each step of the day, consulted on our precise requirements, liaised carefully with ourselves and each of our venues (the church, the college where our reception was held, and the location of the evening entertainment). Our guests were astounded by the quality of his pictures and we have been left with an album that will be a treasured possession throughout our life. We commend him to all prospective couples who are preparing for marriage!’ STEPHEN BAILEY
We have just received our photographs from Alistair after our wedding on Saturday. Wow. Not only does Ali work tirelessly to capture every special moment and memory on the day, he continues after the wedding is over. Every one of our guests commented on his friendly yet professional manner throughout the day, never once being stereotypically the “bossy wedding photographer”, taking into account the sub-zero temperatures whilst doing the outside shots!
From the first time I made contact with Ali, he respectfully took into account our budget and ideas for the day, next encouraging us during our pre-wedding photo shoot. His style of photography is just what we were looking for, and the result is perfection. I would have no qualms recommending his photographic services to other couples looking into using him, and would encourage them to not only consider his style but the entire package, what excellent value for money he offers in difficult financial times.
Roll on bump to baby, Ali-we have found a photographer for all our life’s events!
Thank you so much, love the newlyweds :0) CLAUDIA & SAM McCLUSKEY
Alistair was a true professional from start to finish, truly amazing with young grandchildren, and also the older (can’t think of another word) he made everyone at ease. To sum it up Alistair is our MARY POPPINS; practically perfect in every way. Thank you so much for adding to our day. STAN & SYLVIA PRIMMER
