Dear Karen

Just a few lines to say a massive thank you for all your hard work on our special day. The photgraphs are excellent and we could not have wished for better. We now have the task to try and select some for the album which will be very hard as they are all brilliant.

Best Regards. Sue and Mike. March 2017. Offley Place.

 

Karen

Thank you for our wedding photos. We had an amazing day, your advice prior to the date was gratefully received. Your unobtrusive presence on the day was appreciated. The photos were just what we wanted and captured perfectly the essence of our day. Thank you again. Kerrie and Jon. November 2016. The Bull. Gerrards Cross.

Thank you so much!! The photographs are beautiful!  You have captured moments perfectly. 

We can't wait to show everyone!  We have had so many comments about how lovely you are and how you managed to be there without being obtrusive and bossy like other photographers some of our guests have come across before. You were wonderful - thank you.

Testimonial on Hitched

I found Parkwin photography on hitched and we could not be happier with the service we had from Karen. Karen is extremely talented, hard working and reliable. Not only is she a fantastic photographer but a wonderful person. From the moment we met Karen we knew she was the photographer we wanted. Karen helped put us at ease throughout and during the pre-wedding shoot she gave us useful tips for the actual wedding day. She gave us plenty of time to talk through the plan for the whole day and what photos we wanted to have taken. Not being massive fans of being photographed Karen managed to make us feel relaxed in front of the camera and she captured our day perfectly, even managing to get some brilliant shots of us in the rain! We have so many beautiful photographs from Karen to help remind us of our day and we can't thank her enough. We had lots of comments from our guests about how lovely Karen was and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Jenny & Ian May 2016

Dear Karen. Thank you so much for our beautiful photo albums. We can't tell you how much we love ours and we know our parents are going to be delighted with theirs. We can't say thank you enough for all the wonderful photographs you took on our wedding day and the hours and hours of late nights your have put into creating the albums.

Thank you. Love Jenny and Ian.

Can't thank you enough for the beautiful albums. They are perfect! You are amazingly talented and they really show how much work you put into them. Thank you! xxx Jenny and Ian.

 

Hi Karen, I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was having you capture our most special day. You were so lovely throughout the day and many guests have commented on how nice you were. Thank you also for our card, we really weren’t expecting that!

(Emma & Sam, Down Hall, March 2016.)

Testimonial on Hitched.

Karen was our photographer for our wedding day at Down Hall and she was amazing. Right from the very first meeting we felt like she got us as a couple and understood how we wanted our photos to look and WOW they were so much more than we could ever had wished for. Karen captured our wedding perfectly reminding us of all our wonderful memories from our special day. Karen is friendly, professional and passionate about her work, she is incredible talented and we felt so comfortable in front of her camera. We would highly recommend Parkwin Photography to any couple who want to treasure their wedding pictures. Emma & Sam

Dear Karen.

Just a quick note to thank you again for our beautiful wedding photos. We really appreciate how long you stayed and the time you took to capture all the moments. It's a real gift to have them to remember our day which was such a whirlwind!. All our love. Jess and Rav ( Shenley Cricket Centre, July 2015.)

 

Hi Karen , 

 I hope you are well. Sorry it has taken so long to get round to emailing you.

 We just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful photographs of our wedding. There are so many amazing shots of things we wouldn't have seen such as the hula hooping! It's so nice to have such a wonderful record of our perfect day. 

Thank you for all the time and care you took and it was nice to see you a few times before so we could become comfortable with you and the camera!

 I would be more than happy to recommend you and will do so.

(Lucy & Nick. June 2015. Knebworth)

 

Karen is amazing.

Karen photographed our May wedding at Tewin Bury Farm, and I really cannot sing her praises enough. I spoke to a number of photographers in the preperation for our wedding and it was by chance that I met Karen at a wedding fayre when I was just about to go with another supplier. She has such a lovely way about her and I instantly felt at ease. As soon as I saw a sample of her photos I knew I had to book her. My other half was much more reluctant about the photography as he did not want it to "take over the whole day". We met Karen for a pre-wedding shoot about 6 weeks before the wedding, as reluctant as he was he couldn't help but admit that she was wonderful. Having been completely chilled out in the run up to the wedding I suddenly turned into a nervous wreck on the day, but Karen was a complete superstar and really helped to make me feel comfortable. She got the photos we wanted but in a way that made it feel chilled out and relaxed. I received our photos a few days ago; the end results were fantastic and have brought back all the wonderful memories we felt from the day. I think the best thing about Karen is not only is she a super talented photographer, she understands that each bride and groom are different and she photographs to suit the couple. Plus she is a lovely lady who I can honestly say it was a pleasure to meet. I cannot recommend her enough!

Ashley & David (May 2015)

Hi Karen, 

Just wanted to catch you before we head off to the honeymoon. Thank you so, so, so much for everything! It was a pleasure having you with me in the morning and your calm, relaxing manner was very much appreciated. I'm pretty sure you stayed much later than you should of, so thank you! Lots of people commented that you had a smile on your face most of the night, so I do hope you enjoyed yourself too! Cannot wait to see the pics, we know they will be fab.... simply because you are! 

Thank you!!! Xxxxxxx

 The Photos are great and again we both want to put on record how happy we were with your services. We will gladly recommend you to our friends.

Claire & John  (September 2013) Pendley Manor

Hi Karen,

It was lovely to meet you too. I am so happy with how the pics have come out, there are a few excellent ones, I don't know what I was worried about.

Once again, thank you for all your help yesterday in making the shoot real easy.

Regards  Gillian  (anxious sitter for a business headshot).

Dear Karen
We received the photos on Tuesday, apologies for not confirming until now. They are absolutely fabulous!!!!!!!!!
You have captured every moment as it happened along with the beauty, art and emotion of the day and worked very hard to achieve this from start to finish. Every shot that I had requested is there plus many, many more. I loved all the extras like the pheasant in front of the black cat and the ducks, they are superb! Thank you also for staying above and beyond what we had agreed and getting all the great shots of the "dhol" drummer in the evening reception. Your personality and professionalism certainly put us at ease on the day and we enjoyed your company too.
Thank you so much again Karen and we may be in touch in the future regarding albums.
Best wishes
Saima & Paul    xxx ( Fanhams Hall, Ware, Hertfordhsire.August 2013)

Love Ella & Tom xx

(Tewin Bury Farm, March 2013)

We just wanted to say thank you so much for all your work on the day of our wedding and the work that went into putting the album together, it is wonderful! 
The pictures in the album and on the disc have captured the day perfectly. 

Thanks again.
Vikki & Matt ( Three Lakes Sept 2012)

We’d heard a few disaster stories from friends about their wedding photos so we met several photographers beforehand as we wanted to get it right. Karen was definitely the best photographer we could have chosen. As soon as we met her we realised how professional she is, but also so friendly and easy going. The last thing we wanted was to feel bossed around and we knew this wouldn’t be the case with Karen. Karen was very thorough establishing exactly what sort of photos we wanted, and for us we wanted as informal as possible. We met up at the venue 1 month prior to the wedding to work out exactly where we wanted particular photos (at no extra cost). This was really helpful and Karen even brought a bouquet I could practice holding which in hindsight was such a good idea! On the day of the wedding Karen was so discreet you hardly realised she was there. After the wedding, the photos were put together in a personalised dvd case which looks absolutely stunning. Karen had managed to get fantastic photos of absolutely everyone who was there (including the evening guests). She is amazing at capturing the moment/mood – lots of laughter shots which we love. Karen stayed until it was dark outside, which meant we got even more atmospheric photos – just great. Karen is a fantastic photographer and you really can’t go wrong if you decide to hire her for any event.

Thanks again and all the best
Natalie and Gary (Offley Place 17th August 2012)

 

Hi Karen

Our photos are here and are absolutely amazing! Honestly, we're so pleased with them, thank you! And thanks for our lovely card and chocs too. We can't wait to share our photos with everyone, you captured our day brilliantly. The bumper car shots are great!

Thanks again for everything,

Laurie & Rob x ( Aldenham School July 2012)

Hi Karen

Gareth and I have had a good look through the photos, we have shown both sets of parents too and we all agree, they are amazing. We are so pleased with then and cannot thank you enough for all your hard work.

Louise & Gareth, (Highfield Park, May 2012)

Wonderful addition to our wedding
I can not recommend Karen enough! Right from our first meeting, through the pre wedding shoot and on the day itself she immediately made us feel at ease and was wonderful with her advice, help and of course her beautiful photos. Her presence never felt intrusive and she somehow managed to capture all the important moments as well as the little details. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others and have in fact done so already to all budding brides we know!

Nicola & Robin, (Tewin Bury Farm March 2012)

Karen, Thank you so much for providing such wonderful photos of our wedding day and for giving your time so freely. The pictures are amazing. We would have no doubts in recommending you to anyone else.

Cris and Mark , (Theobalds Park March 2012)

Dear Karen.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for photographing our special day. You did an amazing job and we really appreciate your flexibility and attention to detail.

Paula and Stuart. (Hitchin Priory, March 2012.)

Hi Karen,
We just wanted to say that we have spent the last 10 days doing not much except for looking through our wedding photos.  They are absolutely beautiful and capture the whole mood of the day in exactly the way that we remember it.  We are hopefully going to sit down together this weekend and decide on the ones that we would like in our album but I just wanted to let you know in the meantime how much we love them. 

We have had so many lovely comments about how natural they look and how well they captured the day. Our guests have all said that they thought you were so nice and also really unobtrusive as well, the most common thing we hear people say is "oh wow, when was that photo taken.

My parents also wanted to say thank you for the photos and for your company on the day. They were quite nervous about having photos taken in the morning at their house. They thought you were absolutely wonderful - not only did you take amazing photos that they will always treasure but you were such good company, so nice to be around and made them feel so comfortable,“

Thank you so much, speak soon.

(Kelly & Dave Fanhams Hall 23rd December 2011)

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Karen they are superb, we absolutely love the pictures, you really captured some great moments. We loved going through them as it’s amazing how much we had forgotten, the small moments as we got caught up in the moment. BRILLIANT!
(Helen & Jay Furze Hill Oct 2011)

Dear Karen

 "Karen took my baby boy Harry's photographs when he was just 5 weeks old. Being a new mother I was apprehensive as to how it would work but Karen was fantastic and put me and Harry at ease. Natural shots were also taken and the session did not disturb Harry at all. In fact he really played into the camera. Karen knew exactly how to get the pictures of Harry just perfect. We loved all the pictures and we highly recommend that you use Karen to take photographic memories of your family." 

Dear Karen

We would like to thank you so much for being part of our very special day. You made us feel relaxed and you made it go so smoothly. Even in that heat and being attacked by ladybirds you were great! We are so pleased that you were recommended to us and we will definitly be recommending you to everyone. With the help of your wonderful photos it's a day we will never forget. All the best.

Mandy and Martin. (Ponsbourne Park, Oct. 2011)

Woooooooooooooooooooo! We got the disks and they are awesome! We absolutely love the disk cover and the pictures on each disk and we are soooo excited to have so many shots. They are such lovely pictures- you are a very clever lady so thank you lots.
(Sarah and Rob Church Farm, Ardeley July 2011)


Hi there Karen
Many thanks to you for being so brilliant on the day, and the pictures we've seen so far - along with those we're looking forward to seeing soon - are a testament to the great professionalism, attention to detail and care you've demonstrated from the very start, along with a human side that was very welcome when needed. Thank you.
(Odette & Andy, Wendover Sept 2011)

Dear Karen

Thank you so much indeed for doing such an excellent job with the photography for our wedding. On so many occasions you went the extra mile for us. Visiitng the Node and the church beforehand to get every minute detail right, speaking with the wedding car driver, getting drenched while taking photos of us in the gardens and staying late. Plus keeping patience with our ever changing requests for the album pages. We are absolutely delighted with the album, and have already shown it off on numerous occasions. Several people have commented on how your photos captured everyone's expressions and emotions so well. The album is an excellent momento for an unforgettable day.  You are very much first choice for all photography work in the Aylott family, so hopefully our paths will cross again soon!. Best wishes to you  and your family for 2012. Yours Sincerely.

Mike and Alicia. (The Node June 2011)
 

Dear Karen
Amazing Photographs.
“Thank you, Karen for capturing our day so perfectly. The photos are amazing and really tell the story of our day. You gave us such a professional but personal service right from the start, which made us feel so at ease with you on the big day. We have had so many comments on how wonderful the photographs are and found it very difficult to choose our 200 favourites for the album.  Thank you for all your lovely work and we will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and family.”
(Debbie and James Gaynes Park  Oct 2010.)

"The photos are just lovely. We had such a wonderful day and it means the world to us to have such fantastic photos to remember it by. Thank you as well for making the whole process so relaxed and enjoyable. We count ourselves incredibly lucky to have found you!"
(Susannah and Ruairi, Priory Barn, Little Wymondley Nov 2010)


Hi Karen,
Thanks so much for all the hard work you put in over the last year with Ruairi/Susannah’s wedding, Sean’s photos and Colleen/David’s wedding. I am beginning to feel that we have our very own ‘personal photographer’ for the Curran family! The photos are brilliant and you worked so hard on each occasion – thank you so much
Lots of love Bridget

We received the wedding discs yesterday and the photos are so beautiful
I can't believe you took that many pics. I did say to Gavin that you must have been exhausted after a whole day of shooting. I will be adding to the 'Kind words' on your website for sure! It has been a real pleasure having you around us.
Vasanthi & Gavin, Ashridge, 2010


"WE LOVE the photographs- how on earth we are going to choose between them I do not know! Thank you for staying so long. I really did not expect you to stay so late into the evening.
You are certainly a very talented lady - THANK YOU!
Janet & Joe,  White Horse Hotel, Hertford (2010)

Hi Karen,

Thanks again.
Sarah (Christening)


Dear Karen
" I have just been viewing the gallery (for the third time-I can't stop looking) and had to say: I don't know how you do it. You have a very special talent. You have captured perfectly the essence of the whole weekend in Dingle, with all the fun and laughter, right through the preparations to the big day and the evening- it's all there. Thank you so much.
(Jill)(2009)

Hi Katie & Will.
Oh my God, I just this minute got a chance to view your photos...they are amazing....I have NEVER seen such beautiful photos of a wedding. They are the kind you only dream of having and see in your favourite movie. Seriously, they are magical.
I was wondering about the photographer... She has done an amazing job.
