We first used Karn for our wedding shoot back in August 2014...the results are truly amazing! 
She made us feel so relax and comfortable it was like she was part the family and her photography captured us and our day perfectly, giving us vivid memories we will treasure forever....
We were so impressed with the results we asked Karn to do a family photo shoot to celebrate our daughters first birthday too!!

Steve & Kirstie

Karn did a brilliant job as our wedding photographer. She was so friendly and professional on the day, getting everyone organised and telling us what to do making the photo’s a real enjoyable experience.

We were so pleased with all the pictures we received, the whole day was captured perfectly. The slideshow to music was great to show friends and family and the photo book Karn put together is just amazing, we are so happy with the layout and pictures she chose in this. We have had so many compliments from friends and family on how good all the photos are. We now have the difficult job of picking which ones to frame as we have so many favourites.

I would defiantly recommend Karn. Book her you won’t be disappointed.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you Karn for the fantastic job you done on our wedding day, thank you.

Karn made our wedding an amazing day for us both. I have known Karn since we were kids so I knew I could trust her to do a great job, but what Karn done for us was above and beyond. Our day went fantastic, she gave us ideas for photos and her quick thinking on the day was great, but most of all it was her attention to detail that we loved. We would highly recommend Karn to anyone looking for any kind of photography work to be done, we will use Karn in the future for when we need a photographer again

Thanks, Allan and Dee Stevenson 21st March 2014



I can't even start to tell you how brill my photo experiences have been with Karn.
I first met Karn when looking for a wedding photographer, she was highly recommended to me by a family friend and boy was she right. Karn well and truly hit the nail on the head for the kind of photos me and my husband wanted. From the first wedding picture to the last we enjoyed every minute of it feeling completely relaxed the whole time.
In fact we felt so comfortable we then decided to contact Karn again on our wedding anniversary to have a photo shoot done with our first born and again absolutely brilliant. The only hard part was picking which one of the amazing photos to have put on a canvas.
And now 3 years later we've had another photo shoot this time with all the family and I loved every second of it, was nice to get the chance for us all to be in a photo without someone else holding the camera.
All in all I can't start to thank Karn enough for capturing each and every one of these special moments, she really is amazing at taking photos and I know without a doubt we will be contacting you again very shortly.
Thank you once again.

I would highly recommend Karn McSpadyen photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She will create photo’s to last a lifetime. From the moment we booked her she was extremely professional and I cannot fault her service. She has a wide selection of packages available to suit all types of budgets. We went for the bubbles package and found it well worth the money. She travelled to Scotland to shoot our wedding and she really managed to capture the essence of our day from beginning to end. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank her again and wish her all the best for the future.

Karn, thank you for being a part of our special day, from the moment we met you we loved your bubbly personality and we knew you 'got' what we wanted our wedding photographs to be.
Your photographs are stunning and all who have seen them have commented on how fantastic they are. You made us feel special and at ease and we couldn't have wished for a better photographer.
We love our album and DVD, the album is amazing and really captured the essence of the day. Every time we look at them we relive our day and it brings back many happy memories.
Your professionalism is second to none and I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer to look no further.

Thanks again for all that you have done for us, your photos will give us many happy memories for years to come.

Adam & Rebecca Horton 7th September 2013


We would like to say a massive thanks to Karn for capturing our special moments. Karn made the photography side of our planning so simple and easy ! She kept in touch right up to the wedding and was so professional and friendly, so much so that on the day it was more like a friend capturing our day. Karn also helped a lot with the simple things to ease the stress, from helping me put on my bracelet through to changing me into my wellies for the snow shots. The Final album and CDs were amazing and out family and friends were so impressed. My mum never has the CD off the TV and is constantly showing it off ! We will hopefully be using her again to capture many more of our memories and we would highly recommend Karn for any special days. x

Martin and Lisa 21st March 2013


I've just watched the DVD of my daughter Emma and Dale's Wedding and it is absolutely awesome, thank you so much for your flair, talent, patience and hard work Karn. You have so captured the essence of the day, the joy, the love, the friendship and the pride. We didn't even notice you snapping away, capturing the day in a very special way. Thank you Karn

Hi Karn,

We would just like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for being our wedding photographer.  The album is amazing and everyone has commented on how beautiful and unique it is.  We also got the slideshow DVD which has managed to reduce everyone who sees it to
joyful tears!!  Having you there was also wonderful, you were so accomodating and professional and you fitted right in with the wedding party form the very start.  Many of the guests commented on how quick and easy it was when getting group shots.  Our day was amazing and we
were glad you were an integral part to that.  You made it so easy and the memories that have been created after it are just perfect.

Thank you again,
Thomas and Fiona 27th April 2013

Arron & Karen - Wedding 4th May 2013



We would like to say a big thank you to Karn for being our wedding photographer! We had a wonderful day. Karn is a natural as well as having an amazing eye for photography she really knows how to put you at ease, we were all chatting away while I was getting ready for our ceremony, this really helped keep me grounded and calm.

We were extremely lucky and it was a beautiful day, she took this into account and got some lovely outdoor photos and took photos as quick as possible to save everyone standing around in the heat.
Lots of our friends and family have said how efficient Karn was at getting the group shots and rallying everyone together.
Our photo package was ready very quickly, we love our wedding DVD and the photo link on the Internet is very handy for everyone to see.
We highly recommend Karn! Couldn't have been more perfect we really enjoyed it and are so happy with our photos, Thanks again.

Lynsey and Alex 22nd of July 2013

"We are so glad we chose Karn to be the photographer on our wedding day. She was so professional and nothing was a problem to her. She came up to Scotland to be at our wedding and when she was home visiting her family she could always squeeze me in for a quick catch up on the wedding plans. On the day I didn't know Karn was there most of the time, however she still captured the most memorable parts of our day. They definitely showed how much of an amazing time gordon and I were having. We would just like to say a massive thank you Karn. Our photographs were stunning and you also went that extra mile running after me on my wedding day."

Gordon and Gemma Hood

"We just wanted to thank you again for the amazing job you did as our wedding photographer. From the moment we booked you right until we received our wedding album we were continually impressed by not only the excellent quality of your work but also by the professionalism & friendliness of your service. (As were both our families on the day too!) Your photos captured the spirit of our day beautifully and the efforts you made to ensure we were able to get those elusive beach shots, especially as you knew how important they were to us, were so so appreciated.

We didn't even realise so many of the photos had been taken which not only demonstrates your great skill but also made receiving the wonderful slideshow and CD even more exciting!

So thank you again, we will not be hesitating to recommend you to all our family & friends."

Sacha & Tom Bury

"I've known Karn for a number of years so when it came to choosing our wedding photographer she was a natural choice. Karn listened to all our ideas and on the day she was there on hand capturing every special moment, there were times we didn't even know she was there and she captured moments we missed. The final photos are something we will treasure forever, and something we can't thank Karn enough for. They are truly amazing photos. Thank you again."

Laura and Stuart Fowler xx

We just wanted to say a HUGE Thank you for the birthday party photo shoot. It's such a fantastic party idea for girls who are getting a little too old for pass the parcel!
All the girls had a blast, they loved striking a pose - you had them so relaxed even the shy ones came out of their shells! With all your imaginative ideas the whole thing so much fun, they loved every minute.
I think the general consensus was that it was the coolest party ever and they are already planning next year's!
And the results! All I can say is WOW! Amazing photographs of my girls and their friends which I know they'll treasure forever, Thank you again."

Ruth, David, Kaitlyn and Rebecca Foster

"Thank you so much for the wonderful photographs of my son and my niece, they turned out better than I imagined especially as you had a two year old and a 9 month old to contend with! The whole experience was very relax and the kids had a ball. As a result, we have a fabulous set of of natural photographs on which everyone compliments. Thank you again!"

Michelle, Davie, Angus & Lucy

"My husband and I took our 3 1/2 month old son to Karn for some family photos and we were over the moon with the result. Karn is friendly and approachable, puts you totally at ease but also offers a professional service. We are glad that we chose Karn as a photographer and will certainly be back for more."

Louise Smart

"This is just a quick note to say thank you once again for being our wedding photographer. The photo’s you took on the day, and slideshow you compiled afterwards, are absolutely fantastic. You really captured the spirit of the day & the photos are an amazing record that we will cherish forever. The photo’s are all superb and while this obviously a reflection of your creative skill and experience, this is also in large part attributable to your effortless ability to make people feel at ease. Every time we look at our wedding album we smile – what more could we possibly want? We could not have asked for a more professional and personal service. Thanks again."

Dave & Philippa Cotton

"I was looking for ideas for my 10 year old's birthday party and wanted to come up with something original. I booked a photo shoot party for my daughter and seven of her friends they all wore red tops and jeans and then changed into a party outfit. Karn made it fun for the girls they felt like celebrates for the day! They all got to pick a photograph and received it a short time afterwards, the girls are still talking about it at school."

Marie O'Hara

"We were very happy with the quality of our pictures by McSpadyen photography and felt very comfortable in Karen's presence, she put the whole family at ease. We found the price extremely reasonable and would not hesitate in recommending Karn to friends. Thanks Karn."

Lynne, Gary, Jake & Max

"We are so glad we chose Karn to photograph our wedding in August 2009. Our pictures are amazing and she made us feel completely at ease. She definitely has a way of capturing the best of people and her attention to detail is excellent. The album she created for us will be cherished forever and we are so lucky to have such an amazing account of our day. Karn is a talented photographer and we could not recommend her highly enough to anyone choosing a photographer."

Katie and Phillip Lennon

"I would fully recommend McSpadyen Photography. As soon as my family and I arrived Karn made us feel very welcome and relaxed. The photos that she produced were fabulous, we really couldn't have asked for more. We were a big group of mixed shapes and sizes but the poses that Karn asked us to do didn't make any one look out of place. The shoot had a very fun approach as well as being professional, which made everyone relaxed and made it a very enjoyable experience. Karn is clearly a very skilled photographer and this shows in her work. I will never use a different photographer again. I would recommend Karn to anyone and everybody!"

Stephanie Bancroft

"I'm really glad we asked Karn to take pictures of our new baby boy. She is really professional and its great that you get to do it at home. Her prices are also really competitive when compared to other photographers. Our pictures are amazing and are something we will treasure forever!"
Lisa Hawes

"Setting up a new business was difficult enough, but we also wanted to offer our customers an e commerce option. Getting the photography right for our website was very important for us as we wanted to be a little bit different. Working with Karn to help create our site photography was a fabulous experience; she worked tirelessly to create that special shot we wanted and her help and advice was invaluable. We would highly recommend Karn for your photography requirements, her talent is immeasurable."

Kate Walker - Gifted

Kirsty Pettitt Dance and a Drama Teacher - JAKS Academy

"Just wanted to say a big Thank-you for the wonderful photoshoot you did for my daughters 8th birthday! The girls all had a lovely time and the photos were great! You were very professional throughout the shoot but at the same time you also made it a lot of thanks again Karn!"

Denise Shepherd

"Having had a couple of experiences with famous high street photography companies, we've always been very frustrated to only be able to have a couple of pictures for a very high price. The kids also found photography studios intimidating. Our experience with Karn was amazing! She is very professional but also has a great connection with children and is very patient. We were very impatient to get our CD and absolutely thrilled with it when we got it very quickly! I have already recommended her to all my friends!"

Melanie Bouyer & Family

"We wanted some shots of our group of friends and so booked with Karn. Not only did she make the session lots of fun (crucial to get everyone relaxed and get the best shots!) but she also had loads of great ideas for different photo's and was great at making us pose to get the most flattering sillouettes! We definitely going to have some more done, although I don't know if the walls can't take them, we've got them all over the house! It was a great session. I would highly recommend McSpadyen Photography."

Emma Gregory

"We have used Karn for a number of photo shoots after being so impressed with the first one she did. She has taken photos of my baby bump, newborn photos and we also booked her for our wedding photos. She always acts in a professional manner and made us feel very comfortable and at ease. Her creativity when taking and producing the photos is amazing and the results are truly wonderful. Karn takes on-board any requests you have and works hard to get the photos you want.  Karn's ability to take photos that make people look natural and relaxed is breathtaking and inspirational. Karn comes highly recommended."

Fiona and Kirk Fagan

"For our child's christening we wanted to fully concentrate on the experi"We are so glad we got you to shoot our 'BUMP' pictures, you made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I would never believe they were taken in our very own home. Even Ollie took part and we now have some fantastic photo's of that special time, and of course the photos you took of our precious newborn Lara, I love all the pictures and want to hang them all !. You have captured some beautiful photos of us as a family. We can't thank you enough Karn. Xx"

Ben, Janine, Ollie and Lara Gregory

"For our child's christening we wanted to fully concentrate on the experience and enjoy every moment of the special day. The way you quietly and professionally went about your tasks and gently supervised all of the big family on the day, made your work so transparent and allowed us to focus on the important matters.

To then look back on the photo album that you put together was simply incredible. I have worked with several photographers and obtained many different types of photographic products, but nothing prepared me for the level of quality, detail, beauty, sensitivity and style that you managed to display in every photograph and the whole book itself as a beatifully flowing storybook of our child's special day. Thank you so much."

Richard Swan (Carluke, Scotland)

”We just love the photos you took of Hayden! Each one is beautifully unique and creative, something we’ll definitely treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you!”

From Lucy and Paul Darwin

”We can't thank you enough for capturing such a special day for us that will always be with us and be able to share with all our friends and family. You truly have a great gift. Use it well. Good luck for the future. Our thoughts are always with you. Lots of Love”
