Paul Mackie Wedding Photographer Aberdeen

Kind words…

I was Nervous on the morning of my photo-shoot with Paul, because I am used to being behind a camera, not infront of it. I was also nervous because my youngest son isn’t easy to deal with at times. Paul was great, he calmed me down and got me to relax. The shoot took quite a while because my son Cameron has Autism, That did not stop Paul, he was patient and waited for Cameron to calm down before capturing some of the most beautiful photographs of us. When I seen the finished photographs I cried because they were spot on.  Through all of his running around his brain is constantly ticking and he is waiting for that perfect moment, perfect lighting and perfect emotion to capture. I can’t say thank you enough for the photographs, they are perfect. I am also grateful

for a photographer who was patient with my son and was ok with his disability.

It’s safe to say I have made friends for life with Paul and his wife Sarah. Thank you.

Paul, thank you so much for being our Wedding Photographer – we are absolutely chuffed to bits with our pictures!   Thank you for capturing so many great moments and joyous faces, there were bits of the day we did not see and now we have. You played such a significant part in helping us all feel at ease and everyone commented upon your quiet professionalism – It is clear from some of the pictures that people were unaware they were being photographed.  From our first meeting you made us feel so at ease and added to the fun of our wedding,  we are both delighted at the service you gave us on the lead up, on the day and post wedding and will be sure to recommend you going forward 🙂

Huge thanks to Sarah too for the ‘girly’ bits such as sorting my dress/veil and keeping me laughing through the pre aisle nerves 🙂

Paul was our wedding photographer recently. Before even seeing the photographs we were delighted with the whole experience as Paul really does go that extra mile to capture the whole day. His passion for photography is very apparent and you know he will strive to get the best shot every time. Paul and his wife Sarah are a great team and really make everyone feel at ease taking on board any ideas and suggestions anyone may have. We felt that Paul and Sarah were a part of the wedding not just our photographer. They really are great with the kids right up to the grandparents.

We would highly recommend Paul Mackie Photography to anyone for their wedding day.

We booked Paul to take a set of family photographs to celebrate our Ruby Wedding.  We wanted an outdoor shoot with a more “natural” feeling.  My daughter and husband were home from Australia so we had only a two week window.  Paul bent over backwards to accommodate our wishes and was willing to be with us at a few hour’s notice as the weather was quite erratic at that time.

The only way I can describe the actual shoot was “GREAT FUN FOR ALLl”- but he still managed to produce a set of superb photos, with everybody looking good.

I would not hesitate to book Paul again, he is both an extremely good photographer and has the ability to make the whole experience very enjoyable.

I have been very happy with ‘Paul Mackie Photography’ I have had some family portraits done by them and they were fantastic, we were made to feel at ease and had a great time on the shoot. There was a good deal of flexibility from the company and communication, choice and professionalism was of a very high standard- would definitley recommend to others and have done already!

The final shots were brilliant- I got a lot more out of the photoshoot than I expected. Paul himself was absolutely fantastic to work with: incredibly creative and helpful- he made me feel really relaxed in front of the camera. Thanks Paul

Great results with my spritely 3 year old boy, he doesn’t like having his photo taken but Paul was fantastically patient with him and got some really good results.

We recently used Paul Mackie as photgrapher at our wedding and were delighted with the photographs produced. We got a great mix of formal and casual photographs as this is what we asked for. Paul was very flexible and willing to work around what we wanted, giving great advice as to what he thought would work best. Paul is a very friendly yet professional person who has a great passion for what he does. This passion is shown through the excellent quality of photographs he produces. We would recommend Paul to anyone who is looking for a great way to remember a special occasion. We were thrilled with the service, quality and attention to detail that came with our photographs.

Right from our initial meeting it was apparent Paul was the right man for the job. His outgoing but unimposing nature is exactly what is required in a wedding photographer.

Paul came out to our house for the pre-wedding shoot which really helped to put us at ease and ultimately feel more relaxed on the day. The timing was scarily perfect for this visit as we were graced with a spectacularly vivid double rainbow which Paul wasted no time in taking full advantage of. The resulting pictures were breathtaking.

On our wedding day Paul was faultless. With a challenging schedule from one sight capturing groom and best man in the morning to the next (30 miles away) capturing the bridal preparations before getting in place to record the arrival of the day guests, not being in the right place at the right time was never an issue.

Throughout the day from the ceremony to the first dance Paul was there, not only taking all the relevant obligatory formal pictures but more importantly for us capturing all those unrehearsed, spur of the moment (and at times avant garde), candid shots. I am certain this attention to detail and unwillingness to put the camera down is not possible without a certain level of passion for the art.

Paul and his assistant for the day (and wife) really made Sarah my particularly camera shy bride feel at ease resulting in some stunning shots which we shall treasure forever.

The pictures underwent post production editing and were ready to view in under three weeks. I had no doubt some great moments had been captured but the final product exceeded our expectations.

We have no hesitation in recommending Paul as a wedding photographer with professionalism, diligence, attention to detail, eye for the candid, outgoing but unobtrusive nature and above all a passion for photography.
