    Could not have asked for a better photographer

    We fell in love with Alastair's photos the moment we looked at his profile and knew we had to have him photograph our special day. Alastair photographed both our engagement and wedding photos and they turned out better than I could have imagined. Both my husband and I were not used to being in front of a camera, Alastair made the experience that much better. He was patient, helpful, and kind with us when photographing us.
    We had a tremendous experience with Alastair and would by far recommend him to anyone that asked! He was quick to reply and patient with all the million questions I asked him. He was reasonably priced and the photos were absolutely stunning! We asked for certain photos to be captured and he by far exceeded our expectations with them.
    10/10 would recommend choosing Alastair for your photography needs :)

    Best local photographer

    Alastair was recommended to us as the best photographer in the area by our wedding planner. We couldn't be happier with our choice to hire him. His services are great value and included an engagement shoot. He is kind, softspoken, and was lovely presence on our wedding day. He doesn't make you do awkward poses and we felt very comfortable with him. Alastair is very professional, easy to communicate with and delivered the photos exactly on time. And his results are excellent - we couldn't be happier with our beautiful engagement and wedding photos. We highly recommend him!

    Could not have had a better photographer

    Alastair was an absolutely amazing photographer. He captured our engagement photos and wedding day beautifully. He was priced fairly, was quick to respond to us and his personality is so relaxed that it made us feel so much better about our day. His photos were amazing. We had a delay in some of our events due to speeches and although Alastair was not scheduled to be there, he stayed longer than needed without any expectations. He is kind, considerate, funny and all around a great human being who has a passion for his work! I would highly recommend Alastair to anyone. Thank you Alastair, you have certainly exceeded all of our expectations!

    Extraordinary service

    We had the wonderful experience of working with Alastair on our wedding June 21 ,2019. We couldn't be more happy with the results. He is absolutely amazing, he made us feel so comfortable and has an amazing eye to get the most beautiful shots. He definitely aims to please and was so easy to work with. He had our pictures back to us in no time and we love every single shot. We highly recommend Macpherson images to anyone looking for a photographer, and we hope to get to work with Alastair again in the future.

    From our initial contact with MacPherson Images (Alastair) we were given the absolute confidence to book straight away, and we are so glad we did. Alastair is such a pleasure to work with and puts you at ease. We are outdoorsy people and Alastair had no problem capturing beautiful pictures of us in both our cold and winter engagement photos and our 40 degree and sunny Fall wedding in September! We are so delighted with the quality and style of all of our pictures. We couldn't have asked for better!

    This was the best decision I've ever made besides saying yes to my future husband! Alastair is so great to work with, he is personable and really maked me feel comfortable in an awkward situation. Taking photos and posing in front of people isn't always the easiest thing and he made it so comfortable not only for me but for my fiancé as well! He was recommended from a girl friend who had gotten married last year and raved about it him, and I am so glad our decision in going with him! The locations we went to for our engagement photos were so perfect! It was fun, exciting and a day I will never forget! Thank you Alastair!

    When I witnessed Alistair in action at a friend's wedding, I was impressed at his attention to detail, professionalism and easy-going nature that made the experience really enjoyable. As a bride, I appreciated this even more. He came out to my parent's farm for the engagement photos in the spring and turned our mucky, beige scenery into something beautiful to be cherished forever. I had full confidence in him for our wedding day in August and even that surpassed my expectations in how hard he worked to get all of the shots that we wanted. I am truly grateful that we met Alistair and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a passionate photographer who is committed to quality. Many thanks - Ashleigh & Chris

    Wedding Day - Sept 2019

    Alastair exceeded our expectations for our wedding day. He is very personable, easy to talk to, down to earth, professional and very talented. He helped make our day go very smooth, I usually don’t like getting my picture taken but he made it so organic it was almost effortless. He captured our wedding day perfectly and the pictures are everything and more that we wanted. My husband and I are so glad we picked Alastair to capture our wedding day, we will cherish these pictures forever. We will 100% see him in the future for more photo shoots!
