Kind words and messages!
They say that Word of Mouth is the best form of marketing... It is also suggested that information on websites should be brief and to the point, so rather than scroll through screeds of messages here are just a few kind comments I have received.
- We had looked at a few photographers but we have been genuinely delighted with our choice
- We would recommend Graham for quality, service and excellent value for money that we could not have found elsewhere
- You are professional, flexible, patient and reliable in approach to your work and our wedding photographs more than prove you can work in all weather!
- Thank you for capturing our day perfectly
- The photos are beautiful and are a perfect moment of our day. Friends have already booked Graham for their weddings next year!
- These photos are absolutely fantastic!!. You've made sure that we've been able to enjoy our special day all over again with this mix of beautiful, arty, candid and humorous shots.
We have just got back from our honeymoon in Edinburgh, where Jonathan had booked us a lovely hotel in the New Town. It really was wonderful and we're very pleased to have received your email letting us know that the photos are ready to view so soon. We have viewed all of them on the slideshow and we are absolutely delighted with them! They capture the whole day so beautifully and I can't express how grateful we are to you. I have to say we both had a tear in our eye while viewing them as it brought it all back. We both agreed that we barely knew you were there taking a lot of these lovely shots. You were so discreet and diligent and we love how you've managed to capture moments and glances that tell the story so well. There are also a lot of shots capturing guests and scenes where we weren't present and that has added to our memories of the day.
We are looking forward to receiving your discs through the post and cannot thank you enough for your hard work and kindness on the day. It was a real pleasure to work with you and we think our photos are wonderful.
Mike and I were married on 8 December 2012 at Guthrie Castle in Angus. We chose an intimate, winter wedding in a Castle setting to celebrate our wedding and chose Graham Hood Photography to capture our special day. I can only describe our wedding as magical; the most perfect weekend shared with our family, friends and most importantly each other. Graham spent the day with us and melted in with the guests, capturing candid images which reflected each and every moment throughout the day – happiness, laughter, romance, love and belonging. The images are amazing. Every photograph is perfect - all 400 of them! Neither Mike or I are photogenic and we were worried that our wedding album would not reflect us well on the day – but we couldn’t have been more wrong. Graham put us at ease and managed to capture the most wonderful shots of our guests and us - sometimes when we weren’t even looking! Graham created our wedding album from our selection of favourite photographs and advised us on choice of cover photograph, black and white options, when to highlight certain key aspects of a photograph in colour etc. He was always helpful, friendly and approachable – from the point when we met up before the wedding to go over the package that we wanted, during the day itself and in the weeks afterwards. Graham was very well organised, completely reliable and very professional throughout. We would without hesitation recommend Graham to you as the photographer for your wedding.

'We have just received the photos of our wedding & we are over the moon with the results!
To provide the link within just 3 days so that we can view the pictures whilst we are on honeymoon is incredible. As bride & groom it was so nice to get the finished pictures so quickly.We would like to say by way of a testimonial that it was great to work with you. We felt that you were having as much fun with the pictures as we were. You have really managed to capture the fun & humorous side of the day as well as the more formal & romantic side which we really liked.We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a photographer. The packages you offer & value for money we felt could not be bettered
Your service was first class & you really made us feel at ease. Not being from Scotland ourselves your knowledge of the venue really helped us to think of pictures that we hadnt even considered.Thank you for helping to capture all those moments which go by so quickly but which we can now treasure for ever.
Phil & Kath.
We just wanted to say thank you so much for taking such wonderful photos of our wedding day. You can see how much hard work you have put in and it is very much appreciated. The service you have provided has been excellent from start to finish. You really managed to capture the spirit of the day and all our family and friends have been delighted with the photos and DVDs. We love the high quality of our album and we will treasure it for years to come. We couldn't imagine getting better value for money elsewhere and we are both delighted we chose you to capture our special day. We will be highly recommending you to anyone we know who requires a photographer. Wishing you all the best in the future.
Ryan and Tracy
We received the wedding album yesterday. It is amazing! We would like to express our thanks by way of this testimonial...
'Graham provided an excellent service and superb photographs. He was willing to come to the wedding venue before the date to walk round with us and discuss pictures, and he captured some truly unforgettable moments of the day. We were amazed how many pictures Graham managed to take throughout the day, and the best part of the service that he provides is that they are all yours to keep. Almost every other photographer we looked at for the wedding day would only give you the album, and charge extra for any additional photographs you wanted. Now all of our family and friends have a copy of the professional photos they like. Graham is such a friendly person to get on with, and the photography package he provided was probably the best value service of the wedding.'Thank you again for all the hard work you put into our wedding, and we will (and have) recommended you to friends and family...
All the best
Garry and Erin
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your hard work on our wedding day. We absolutely love our photos. You were so professional and well priced, you did above and beyond what was discussed when we met you. We honestly can't thank you enough. We will definitely be recommending you to all our family and friends.Thanks again
Lorna and Ian
" After visiting several photographers and viewing the packages and costs that were involved we were extremely surprised to see how much Graham was offering for the money and we were not disappointed by the service we received. A year before we were even due to be wed we met Graham at our venue to see what the grounds would be like at that time of year and potential areas for good shots. Leading up to our wedding we continued to stay in touch and always received prompt responses to emails. On our wedding day itself Graham was very flexible for timings, coming well before the ceremony, getting shots of families, providing more time for ourselves after the ceremony and staying beyond the first dance. Although we did not have the day recorded on a video camera, from the number of pictures and extent of time Graham was there it feels as though we did when looking through all the photos. We were very surprised to receive all our photos in albums as well as CDs, DVDs set to music and and the final story book wedding album having had friends in the past who only received an album of approx 30 photos. All in all we can't fault the service or end products, our heartfelt thanks for making our day so memorable"
Nicky, Mark (and baby Rian)
Thank you for the first class pictures of our wedding. We had a lovely time. Most importantly, the photographs have turned out more beautiful than we had imagined. All our friends and family simply loved the pictures. Graham and I are overwhelmed with them, and we can't help showing them off. Both of us would also like to thank you for designing such a wonderful album, which we will treasure for our lifetime. It is just awesome! We would happily recommend you to everybody for any ocassion for the most friendly, professional and prompt service.
Thank you and Kind Regards
Graham and Kanika
Thanks so much for getting our wedding photos uploaded so quickly.Just wanted you to know how delighted Duane and I are with the photos (all 271 of them - wow!), they are just wonderful. The slideshow's been playing most of the day today on our laptop for everyone to see. I think I've already seen each and every photo about 20 times already!I honestly can't think of a better present than the one you have given us - a lifetime of memories from our day that will be truly treasured by us and our family. We will happily recommend you to everyone we know who is getting marrried or may need your services. A hearfelt thanks from both of us, wishing you all the very best for you and your future business.P.S. The DVDs that you gave us are fantastic (the kids just love watching it on TV, they think they are famous!), so a huge thank you for gifting us those. We are both astounded by the level of service that you have given us, considering the huge number of photos as well as the additional DVDs, and the fact that we couldn't have hoped for better photos, the quality really is exceptional.
Anna, Duane and family.
Just like to say a big thank you for your excellent service at our wedding on the 16th July. We thought the pictures turned out brilliantly and we are very glad we picked you. We will definitely keep you in mind for any future ocvcasions!
Laura and Frank
This is just a wee note to say a huge thank you from both of us for our amazing wedding photos. We absolutely love them and couldn't have asked for better. Thank you for all your time and effort, and indeed patience on the day! We really appreciate your hard work and will (and have) recommended you to many of our friends - here - and abroad!
Linda and Stephen
Many thanks for the wonderful photos you took at David and Danielle's wedding. They have been greatly admired by the happy couple and everyone else who has seen them. A lot of hard work and some last min ute anxieties due to the weather did not prevent you from doing a great job and providing some wonderful memories for all those who shared the day.
Sheila (Mother of the Groom)
Thank you so much for photographing our wedding for us. We had a wonderful day and you captured it all for us. You have managed to get all the bits we saw and also those great quirky and funny monents that we didn't. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer and we would recommend you without hesitation. Thank you so much again for giving us above and beyond what we dreamed off.
Elaine and Rob
We just wanted to say thank you again. The wedding photos are wonderful and we really appreciate the amount of work you obviously put in. The results exceeded our expectations. We will enthusiastically recommend you to anyone we know.
Liz and Chris
We had a look at the photos on the website whilst we were away and I've had another look this morning. Ruth and I were both blown away with the photos you took and are dreading having to select some above the rest as we loved them all!Thank you so much for giving us such a fabulous record of our special day and we hope you're equally happy with the results, especially given that conditions weren't exactly perfect.
Ruth and Rob.
I write to express the Guildry Committee's thanks for providing, what can only be described as an impressive photographic record of a year in the life of the Guildry and Perth. You have captured the essence of the Guildry in living colour, no mean feat I can assure you!This book will be a fine archive for future generations of Guildrymen and we congratulate you on the quality of the production.I am sure many of our members will be interested in finding out more about the book and the photographs within it. Yours sincerely

A friend shared some photos with us, which feature you!, so I've attached them in case you need reminding of your death-defying feats up that step ladder! Hope all is good with you and that business is booming. We really couldn't recommend you highly enough, not only for the photographs you took but your kindness and genuine interest before and after the event.
With all best wishes
Lynsae and Richard
We're glad you enjoyed the day. We had a fantastic time and I don't think we would have changed anything. We thought you were great to work with and would have no hesitation in recommending your services.We've watched the DVD about 5 times now and really like it. We've had a look at the 500 thumbnails, but not had time to look at the larger images - we're busy putting our home into boxes for the move on Monday!When we've had a chance to look through the rest of the photos we'll let you know of any others that would look good in a photobook.I think there are a lot of people looking forward to seeing the photos on your website.
Ian and Emma
"Thank you for the hard work that you undertook for us at the Royal National Mod in Oban last year and this years event in Caithness. The photographs that you took really captured the atmosphere at the Mod. The daily posting of the photographs to the website was eagerly anticipated. Spectators and competitors alike have commented on how much they have enjoyed the photographs. The photographic library that you created was one of the highlights of a highly successful week for us."
Chief Executive OfficerAn Comunn Gaidhealach
To say we were pleased with our wedding album and the DVD is an under statement.The photos are amazing.We are very grateful to you for the time and effort you have put into producing these for us.As the wedding was on a day which we had the heaviest snowfall for years you captured not just a wedding album but a story book we will look at for years to come and be able to remember the great day we all had and the problems everyone had getting to the hotel due to the snow. So Graham.Thank You Very Much For All You Have Done For Us.
Alice & David
We have just been on the website to view all the photos and they are just fantastic - can't thank you enough!
Gayle and Kev
We received the photo album and Robert and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to you for the photographs and producing such a wonderful memory of the day. I was definitely overwhelmed with emotion seeing the photos. We thank you for all your time and efforts, it brought a tear to my eye! Just absolutely wonderful.
Monica and Robert
Thank you so much for travelling up to Aberdeen to be part of our special day. As soon as we got back from our honeymoon, our photographs were waiting for us and we couldn't wait to see them. We LOVE them! Hundreds of photographs and all of them amazing!
You really captured the day so well and you were never obtrusive. We'd definitely recommend you to others!
Gaby and Simon
Happy New Year!
I cannot thank you enough for the truly lovely photos you have taken of me at the Royal National Mod in 2009 and 2010. Everyone has admired them so much. The pic of me at Thurso with the George Clavey is the very best pic of me that has ever been taken.
"Many thanks for the photographs of the beautiful flowers which I am using on my web site for the launch of Imvelo natural body products. I also had the pics made into posters for an exhibition and they added to the ambience of my natural message and brand. They were also admired by many visiting the stand. Thank you so much again."
"While searching the MOD 2009 web site I noticed a link to Graham Hood Photograph. What an incredible surprise to find my memories of the MOD captured through the lens of Graham Hood. Many of the new friends I had met where there for me to see. Through both posed and candid shots Graham caught the wide variety of experiences and the excitement of the winners at MOD 2009. My thanks to Graham for extending and expanding my MOD experience."
