Reviews and Testimonials for Ross Barber Photography

Wedding Photographer in Scotland Reviews

As a wedding photographer in Scotland I am lucky to get to work with fantastic couples on one of the biggest days of their lives; their wedding day. It is always a massive honour to be asked to photograph a wedding and it is something I take an enormous amount of pride in.

I will always try and go the extra mile to provide you and your guests with excellent service which starts at the very first meeting. The letters, email, texts I receive from previous clients tell me how I am performing as a wedding photographer. It is wonderful when clients have enjoyed their experience so much that they then take the trouble to send me an email, letter or text and allow me to use them as a review.  With their permission I have included a selection here.

Amy & Robbie – Oxenfoord Castle – Edinburgh.


What can we say? Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the most beautiful pictures we have ever seen.  We are both over the moon with them all.  I don’t think there is a single one we don’t like.  You captured the day perfectly and the love between us and also that of our little family with Callum, as well as with all the guests that were there.  All the memories are right there in the images so thank you very much!

Sorry for keeping you waiting for so long for our response but we are happy we waited until we could give them our full attention.  We can’t believe some of the images you took, honestly for some of them we never even realised that you were there.  In Robbie’s words ‘you’re a ninja!’ as you seemed to be everywhere at once.

Looking forward to seeing you wednesday.

The newlyweds!

What was important to you in your choice of photographer and what did you like about his/her record of the day?

We wanted a photographer who was professional, inspirational, up for doing things a bit differently and would make us feel comfortable.  Ross Barber ticked all the boxes and more.  We loved the photos that Ross had taken of a friend’s wedding, they were breathtaking, natural and unique, and Chris and I knew that he was the photographer for us.  Ross arrived in Aberdeen on the Friday afternoon and ran through a pre-photo shoot with us at the venue.  He came to my house early on the Saturday morning (7.30 am) and snapping as the girls got ready and then dashing to our venue to take the first look photos.  He was with us for the rest of the day until the dancing finished at 1am.  Ross also waited patiently for us on the Sunday morning to come and shoot us, Honora (Annie’s horse that she has owned for 13 years) and Mister Blue dog (our cocker spaniel) in the rain.  Ross never stopped and all our wedding guests (especially the bridal party) have fed back heartfelt compliments about Ross’ hard work and the quality of the images.  Ross’ professionalism continued after the wedding with the speed to which the images were available online and the patience that he has had with our ordering.  Chris and I are over the moon to have had Ross as our photographer, he went above and beyond what we expected of a photographer and we cannot fault him on any aspect, Ross was one of the reasons our wedding day was so special and will be going back to him again and again for all our future family events.

Ross was with us in the days prior to the wedding, recording the memories of our whole ‘wedding week’.  He was patient, polite and his photographs are incredible.  I cannot say enough kind words about Ross and his exemplary work.


Amanda & Walter – Kailzie Gardens – Peebles

Hi ross,

Everyone is really delighted with the photos, so I guess you should expect more orders 😉  We’ll be ordering more via the website, but yet to decide which ones!!  All the photos are lovely, and will always be a great reminder of the day.  You also handled us all very well, and made my sister smile on camera which is a herculean task at the best of times.

Speak soon, Amanda


Marie and Michael – Ayr

Hi Ross,

These are fantastic!  Thank you!  We were up until about 1am looking at them all!!  We’ll need to go through them again to choose our favourites but it’ll take a wee while!  Speak soon.

Emma and Gordon – Clan Donald – Skye

Hi Ross,

The photos are absolutely amazing!  Really stunning!  We’ve spent the best part of the afternoon going through them again and again.  Absolutely gorgeous – you have managed to capture our day with such beautiful vision – we can’t thank you enough.  Just a bit worried about how on earth we will manage to whittle selection down for photo album!!!!  Will be in touch once we’ve settled back home next week to discuss next step.

Thanks again!!!

Emma & Gordon

Morning Ross,

Hope you are well.  Photo album arrived safe and sound yesterday afternoon and we are absolutely thrilled with it!  It’s amazing and we are delighted that you’ve captured and framed what was the best day of our lives in an absolutely gorgeous album.  Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.  So chuffed we put our faith in you and it was rewarded ten fold!!!!  Apologies for the delay in this text – I did mean to contact you yesterday but had a bit of a hectic day.  I look forward to showing the album to folk (we head back up home in a couple of weeks so will be proudly exhibiting then).  Thanks again from both of us, you have been an absolute pleasure to work with.

Evening Ross,

Mark and I are back in Aberdeen and although a little tired we are delighted to get back and start our married life!!  We wanted to thank you again for all your hard work and amazing photographs.   We received the DVD and images on disc yesterday and we are absolutely delighted with it.  You have captured our day so so well and it is just what we imagined and wished for.  I have watched it 4 times already!  Thank you again for all the effort, everything has been better that we ever expected.  I will highly recommend you to any future bride and groom!

Best wishes Kirsty and Mark.


Amanda and Chris  – Winton House, Nr Haddington

Hi Ross,

Apologies for the tremendous delay in our response!  All of the photographs are utterly amazing, you captured our day perfectly!  We’re so happy with them – whittling them down will be a struggle.  Once again, thank you so much for taking part in our day!

Stewart Siegal – Family Portraiture

Afternoon Ross,

To say we are delighted by the results of our family portraits is a major understatement.  From the ease you dealt with the 7 adults, 5 teenagers and 2 babies that make up our family, to the speed at which all or our images were available online for viewing, to your patience with the ordering, not to mention the extremely competitive pricing but most importantly to the fabulous images of my family that we shall retain and cherish forever.  We have all had experiences of photographers and photography companies before, but from booking to delivery your service has been first class.  On behalf of all the family – thank you, my Dad will have a very memorable and enjoyable 70th birthday present.

Regards, Stewart


Tracy and Pat – Ness Castle Lodge Cabins – Inverness

When we saw the exceptional quality of your photographic work on this website, we expected to be delighted with the images you took of our wedding day but the images taken surpassed all expectation.  Within days of celebrating our wedding in Inverness, we along with our family and friends had a link to all the online images you took of our day.  We particularly liked you setting up a wee studio in the marquee so guests had the option to have their picture taken whilst still being able to enjoy the party.  A number of people mentioned to us on seeking a photographer for our wedding to get a personal recommendation.  They remarked that beautiful images seen on a website may have been ached through a photographer whose ambition to get the best photos took from the couples enjoyment of the day.  You were recommended to us by someone who had seen and loved your work. And now, we too can both wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone who seeks a professional photographer who can perfectly capture the mood of a special day.  Such was your relaxed and friendly manner, people thought you were there as our guest – a true reflection of an unobtrusive working style that produced truly memorable images of our day.

Our heartfelt thanks.  Tracy and Pat.


Louise and Craig – Dalhousie Castle

Dalhousie Castle wedding photographer Ross Barber Photography

Our wedding day was the most amazing day of our lives and every second of it has been captured more beautifully and naturally than we could ever have imagined with your pictures.  From first thing that day you were there making sure everything was covered and worked tirelessly throughout the day.  Not only that, but because you are so genuine, warm and kind you made us feel more relaxed than we ever thought we could and that was a huge part of what made our day so special.  We were so lucky to have met you and can say without any doubt that nobody could have captured our wedding day more perfectly than you have.

Carolyne and Ken – Pre wedding shoot for Ohio Wedding

I was hugely impressed with the pictures and loved the DVD.  Thank you so much for all the very professional work you put into it.  Once again apologies for the general uselessness re choosing images, but it’s your fault for producing such great images (that’ll teach you!!)  It looks like a few more of my friends will be travelling to Scotland to get married and I will be very happy to recommend your (amazingly patient) services!!

Carolyne & Ken



Hi Ross,

We watched the DVD last night and are just stunned as to how amazing they really are! We have no idea how you managed to get some of those shots and are extremely impressed as to how good a photographer you are. We really do not know where to start with choosing these photos as we love them all.
