Gillian took photos of me and my pet tortoise and she was absolutely wonderful! I was a little nervous knowing which pet photographer to pick but Gillian is the right choice! She places the animal as her top priority and really understands and appreciates the animal and how much they mean to the owner. She was so helpful and friendly throughout and it was great fun. Thank you so much Gillian, I am so so happy with my wonderful photos!

Many thanks Gillian for a lovely afternoon of photography at the Deer centre today. You have rekindled my love of photography with your calm friendliness and knowledge. I have already  recommended you to a friend and can't wait to get some photos I took today printed and on the wall!

I spent a wonderful afternoon with Gillian at the Scottish Deer Centre, Fife to photograph the wildlife in the Centre.
Gillian was lovely company and very easy to get on with. The opportunities she made available to get some fantastic shots of the residents were invaluable and would never have happened without her help.
If you are the slightest bit interested in wildlife photography spend a day with her and you will not be disappointed.
Great company, great day out, great photos and I would love to work with her again.
Fantastic value for money.
Thank you very, very much.

Gillian met with me, my sister in law and our 4 children at lochore meadows for an outdoor photo shoot. She put all the children at ease immediately and had lots of fun with them, capturing them in all different places around the park in the most beautiful way. We could not be happier with our photos and how quickly she got them to us. These photos are going to make my parents very happy when they receive them as a 40th wedding anniversary present. Thank you so much once again xx

Gillian is a fantastic photographer who went out of her way to capture beautiful relaxed photos of our wedding. On the morning of the wedding Gillian arrived at the house to capture photos and she was a joy to be around, friendly and relaxed but very professional. Through out the day she was very organised and helpful when getting everyone in photos. We would highly reccomend Gillian to anyone looking for a photographer as she really does go out of her way (including traveling to a remote island!) to capture beautiful photos!

For the amount of time she spent with us and the photos which then resulted from she was great value for money.Thanks very much Gillian we love the photos!

Gillian did our engagement shoot and wedding photographs at Loch Lomond July 2015 & what can i say. She was utterly outstanding and went the extra mile on our special day. Her attentive nature and attention to detail clearly shows in her work. She was so friendly and kind but highly efficient and professional all day. She also joined us the night before which was really special and she captured special moments with the bridal /groom party. The wedding album is equally amazing ,with all our family and friends stating they have never seen anything like it before. Its been all round the uk visiting as we are so happy with it. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts Gillian is a special rare find, roll on the newborn shoot.

Love Neil and Suzy Rook

Received the photographs of a shoot Gillian did of my cat and they are just gorgeous. Due to my boyfriend being allergic I am having to rehome him and so the shoot was very personal to me. Gillian was absolutely lovely, very professional and great with Benny! The photos are beautiful and although my cat rarely sits still for a minute, Gillian managed to get some great shots that I will cherish forever. Thank you xx

Absolutely fantastic,we couldn't have asked for a better day, Gillian made us feel very much at ease, especially myself (frances) as I have an actual phobia of having my photos taken but she really was amazing, catching snaps without me even knowing lol.
The photos are stunning, the detail in them is amazing, I especially like the black and white ones but they are all beautiful.
We really cant thank you enough for taking the time and patience to get these amazing photos, thankyou for sharing our special day with us.

An absolutely lovely photoshoot.  My little daughter Sarah doesn't normally take direction well but you were an absolute pro and the pictures more than showed this.  A pleasant and lovely experience with an excellent photographer who I would highly recommend.

Gillian was fantastic with my little boy who is almost 3, he wasn't very well & therefore a little unco operative, but Gillian was patient managing to get him to sit & take a great picture.  Our pictures are amazing it is a wonderful service & at such a great price with such a lovely lady looking after us I cannot wait to go back for our next lot. x

My daughter and her family were home from Australia this year for Xmas, We asked Gillian if she could fit us in for a photo shoot and even although it was short notice she managed it, her professionalism was beyond reproach, she handled my two youngest grandsons who are six and one and just wanted to run about with extreme patience and managed to get them to sit and pose, no mean feat in its self.  Gillian the photographs are superb and will be a lasting reminder of the time when we were able to have the family all under the same roof at the same time.  Thank you.

I chose Photography by Gillian for my wedding photos and could not have asked for a better service. Gillian made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera by offering me pre wedding shoot and this really helped as I am really not comfotable usually in front of the camera. The detail that went into completing my wedding package was excellent and they included still life shots of my memory items as well as really natural shots captured througout the day of the wedding and posed group photos. When I recieved my photos I couldn't belive how they told the story of the day and seemed to capture the atmosphere as well. An excellent photographer and a lovely lady.

Gillian was very helpful and professional not just on the day but beforehand when we were booking her services.  The photographs are wonderful, she was very patient on the day of our wedding, was very discreet and worked well with everyone that attended.  Thank you again, we will be recommending your services to our friends.

Had the pleasure of taking my family along to be photographed by Gillian. A thoroughly enjoyable, professional experience. Gillian is very friendly and puts everyone at ease, also listening to what you hope to get out of your photoshoot. Capturing a moment in time of your fast growing family is priceless and I would recommend anyone looking to achieve this should get in touch with photographybygillian xxxx

 We got married on the 13th October 2012 and chose Gillian as our photographer for our special day,from the moment of meeting Gillian we both felt so relaxed and the photos taken are proof of such a relaxed day shared by all.  I would have no hesitation on recommending Gillian for your special day. Thanx Gillian.

Glllian is all you could wish for, for the day you'll remember for ever. She is totally sensitive to your needs. She has the awareness and insight to what is required. She came to see us prior to the wedding to discuss in detail what our requirements were . She took care and attention to consider what type of photo shots would be most effective, looking at the venues where the wedding was taking place,both the church and hall for the reception. Prior to the wedding she took pictures of our keep sakes e.g wedding invites , the wedding tie , a shoe that Caroline was going to wear, the necklace Caroline was to wear etc. She took the trouble to talk to the Minister before hand to gain an awareness of the appropriate etiquette for the church. On the day Gillian was totally in tune to the atmosphere of the wedding , she was highly organised but unobtrucive, her personality was friendly and engaging, enabling her to gain a  positive response to everybody at the wedding. After the wedding she took great trouble to produce the pictures in a creative and varied way. The results were excellent capturing the day brilliantly, not only were there the official poses , but also incidental pictures of people chatting to each other , children playing etc, which captured the flavour of the day. These pictures are the ones you'll have for life, you can trust in Gillian that they will capture all aspects of the event for you the look back on with warmth. Always choose Gillian, you will be impressed.
