Carolyn took photographs of my girls last year, and I can only say, with gusto, that everything about Carolyn bespoke is hugely first class. Excellent location, we decided on the moors. To which the autumn flowering heather complements my living area so well. Then the shoot itself. Both girls had a ball with Carolyn. Props and all!!! I have told Carolyn this before and it seems understated, but when I look at my beautiful, unique artwork. It makes me SMILE. I often call this woman a photography magician, as when you open up the beautiful specially wrapped product at the end it’s just magic.
I also thoroughly enjoyed the easy selection process of picking prints/ products, no pushy sales patter, just a informal, happy experience all round. Roll on the snow, so we can do it all again.
We were never going to be ‘model’ clients, we both had a fear and loathing of being photographed, worse still one of us was a photographer!
For our plan and beautiful low-key wedding to work, we needed a very special photographer and there was only one person for the job, Carolyn Mendelsohn. We ran away to Whitby for the most romantic of elopements, two brides, two best men and Carolyn!
Not only did we want our most special of days documenting, more demanding yet, we wanted photographic evidence that we’d tied the knot, to display to our family and friends at a party to be held the next day.
The photographs speak for themselves, they tell the story of two people being ridiculously in love, two cheeky and wonderful best men and the most perfect wedding a couple could wish for. What the photographs don’t tell you is just how anxious of being photographed we initially were, and it is down to Carolyn’s infectious personality and sheer professionalism that she extracted the very best from us. She was prepared to travel for a pre-shoot the night before and didn’t stop working until we were astonished to find the most magical images uploaded and ready to go the very same day.
When we arrived for our family & friends ‘after party’, the first thing every guest said to us wasn’t congratulations, it was ‘wow, the photographs were amazing’ and quite right too!!!
We’re not just saying it, but Carolyn made the most beautiful memories for us.
The shoot is incredibly professional and great fun too. I just love the wild and natural locations we’ve used. Timeless pieces of art are created and the only problem is deciding which ones to choose!
And, wow! When they’re delivered Carolyn arrives with everything packaged so beautifully with a nostalgic twist to the wrapping. From beginning to end it has been such a wonderful experience and we now have gorgeous and original artwork.
