We are absolutely in love with the amazing job CIA photography have done with our wedding photos. Incredibly great people, they made our day so much fun. They are amazing at what they do, their love for photography really shows. They went above and beyond for us.
I would recommend CIA to everyone. So professional, photos are incredible. We felt so relaxed. We went around Glencoe getting post wedding photos that have turned out breathtaking. They put so much effort into editing, we are so grateful for all the work that they have given us. Every photo we asked to create was done with hundreds more.

When you book with them you are in great hands, real professionals, we can't thank Colin and niamh enough. You will have an amazing day getting your photos taken with CIA, capturing your big day that you will be proud of for a lifetime.

Having seen much of Colin’s work, I was totally confident hiring him and trusting him to guide me on the day. We went away into the village and up into the hills for pictures which is a part of the day I massively enjoyed and the pictures from this are breathtaking - making the most of the Loch Lomond venue.We received about 10 photos edited the following day which was great for social media posts and all of the edited images within a month and every stage of the day has been beautifully captured, including candid pictures of all our guests.


Our album is incredible - fantastic quality and beautiful presentation - something to keep out for visitors to look at and remember what a fantastic day we had.

Thank you very much Colin!! Our photos were amazing and you did not disappoint. On the day of our wedding my husband and I were so relaxed with Colin and so were our guests he was very professional and organised, when it came to getting the guests together it all went smoothly. The whole day was captured perfectly all the little details from the perfume I was wearing to the starters and food being served to the favours we hand packed for our guests and the flowers we arranged on the back of the chairs. Trying to narrow down what pictures to use for our album was tough as there was hundreds to choose from but we got there in the end with guidance from Colin on the layout so the album would look perfect. I cannot thank him enough the photos and memories will last a lifetime. I cannot believe the last photo you took of the night you managed to get the lightening strike. I would highly recommend CIA Photography.


Colin was fantastic from our initial meeting, to the handover of our beautiful wedding album.

When my husband and I met with Colin to discuss our preferences, he was great. We explained that we were not the type of people who particularly enjoyed posing for photographs, and he told us he could do a "behind the scenes" type day, which would be him catching lots of real moments. This instantly made us relax as we were happy that we could just be ourselves.

On the day Colin was amazing, although I do not generally enjoy posing, he made me feel very comfortable, so I let go a little and I am so glad, as if I had planned to take pictures I would have been nervous, but his kind and relaxed presence made it easy, and we also had a laugh and a joke.

Henry (Colin's 2nd photographer) was with the boys, and he took some great shots. I love looking at the pictures of them pre-wedding as it was a sneak peek in to their morning.

Colin did not miss a moment!!! I can not emphasise this enough. Not a moment or detail was missed, which I am extremely grateful for as I put in a lot of effort in to the little things. I have great candid shots with my friends and family, and also shots through the ceremony, speeches and so on. These are priceless moments to me, and I am so grateful they were captured.

From getting ready in the morning, to our first dance both Colin and Henry were absolutely brilliant.

When I received my photos, I was overwhelmed with how beautiful they were. I struggled having to pick as they were all amazing, and Colin again stepped in and advised, and we came up with the final product. My album is my treasure now. It looks like a fairytale book, and I wish I could do it all again! I highly recommend CIA photography. I do not think my day would have been the same without them.

Thank you very much Colin!!

Colin not only took some truly amazing photos but he was a lovely man too. He made my bride feel very comfortable and was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. 100% would recommend. He even somehow managed to capture 2 swans flying over the alter for an unbelievable shot!

Well where to start, I honestly struggle to put in to words the service Colin provided. From the very first time we met him at lodge on Loch Lomond he was welcoming and easy to talk to. Colin was not forceful in selling his services and we never felt under pressure he simply presented his previous work to us and we could see how amazingly talented he was.

Booking with CIA photography was so simple and easy & Colin kept in touch with us at regular intervals. We unfortunately had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID & Colin was great and helped us change it without any issues.

Then the big day came and Colin was just amazing from keeping me calm in the morning to making me laugh later in the day. Colin & Henry were outstanding with our guests and everyone commented on how great and approachable they both were.

Colin was so patient and understanding when my son was upset and overwhelmed and didn’t make me feel stressed about having him in family photos. Colin & Henry also took the time later in the night to take myself, my husband and my son outside to get the most amazing photos of my little man in his outfit and for this I will be eternally grateful.

I have to mention the great help from Colin’s daughter Nieve with her great smoke dancing skills lol! You smashed it honey!!

By the end of the day I honestly felt like Colin was more of a friend than a photographer.

Since receiving our photos I was so shocked but so grateful for the photos I didn’t even realise Colin & Henry had taken. The special moments between people forever captured in the most beautiful images.

I have no words for the photos of myself & my husband as they are just out of this world. Colin’s knowledge of the area is second to none and we felt at ease every step of the way.

One last thing Colin - remember never say flowers to your flower to a midwife again haha!!

I honestly cannot thank Colin and Henry enough for capturing our amazing day they way they did and we will be forever grateful.

Dear Colin and Henry,


We are absolutely delighted with our wedding album and are so grateful for all the time,effort and attention to detail that has been put into not only our album but the wedding experience as a whole. From start to finish you have been professional, approachable and produced quality shots - as examples, proofs and the final album.

During the day you ensured that our bridal party and guests were relaxed and were able to capture all the natural shots was had asked for. It is really important to get on with your photographer and to feel comfortable (with CIA Photography this comes naturally) - as you are with them the whole day!!


When I think back to the ceremony I can hardly remember having my photo taken as you were so discrete. When we were having professional shots done it was fun and a bit of a laugh really - it did not feel like a forced or awkward situation (which I have heard can happen with some photographers).


We are delighted with the entire photography experience and we couldn't recommend you highly enough! Thanks again!

Tonya Sypolt-Hamilton


Colin. I have never felt more relaxed then I did with you! You are an absolute natural!!! Your amazing attitude and friendly nature made the photographs stunning. I really appreciate all your help and professional nature that greatly contributed to an amazing day. Being out of the country, we relied on the reviews of previous customers of yours....and believe me they could not have been more right about you. When we actually saw your work we were blown away, and we knew without a doubt that we had made the right choice with you! There is no greater compliment then an honest referral, and we would gladly shout from the rooftops for you!!!!
Thanks a million!!!
Tonya Hamilton!!!

Michelle Morran Revie

Julie Jones


You did my wedding back in 2007. The photos were amazing and all my friends that have got married since i have always suggested you to them. Do you still use our album to promote your business? Many Thanks Julie (Mrs Jones 07/07/07) x

Fiona Dickens


Colin you really made the whole day easy and relaxed for us both - but especially me! I love the photos and all the helpful advice on the way just made sure we weren't stressed. Your professional, smart and funny approach ensured i relaxed - which is no easy task and the photos are stunning they really captured all the events of the day and more importantly all the people who were there to share it. Having the photos the day after the honeymoon was great - really took the pain out of returning to work. I would recommend you to anyone who is getting married (or anything else!) and wish you all the best.

Thank you so much for everything

Lindsay McSporran


We had already picked our photographer when we met Colin but we were so impressed with his albums and packages we changed and we don’t regret it one bit. Colin was fun to work with and took pictures that we asked for, still take out my album every couple months to look at it and whenever i hear a friend getting married im always getting out the album to show them and passing on Colins details, cant help myself sometimes :D Colin was also great with our son Matthew who was almost 2yrs old at the time which helped too, Will never hesitate to recommend CIA Photography to our friends and family (and strangers if i could hehe)

Nicola Kemp


Colin is a fantastic photographer who makes everyone feel totally relaxed and at ease. We are delighted with our photographs and found it very hard to pick for our album as every single photograph is stunning. Neither I nor my husband has enjoyed having our photograph taken in the past, but it was one of our favourite parts of the day. It was a pleasure to be in Colin’s company. We will be highly recommending him to everyone as we are delighted with his work.

Lynsey Paterson


Colin is a great and very talented photographer, so relaxed and makes you feel at ease on your big day so much so James and I have highly recommended him to many. Great to see yet another fantastic time had by all and captured by Colin at Scott and Tonya's wedding, I think you will all agreed Scott and Tonya look fab! P.S check out the sample album, thats ours!
Cheers Colin, see you at Fraser and Karen's Wedding in August 2012!!

Paula Degnan


CIA Photography helped make my wedding day go so smoothly like many other brides I was worried about being photographed and Colin put me at total ease, professional and funny he helped me to loose my nerves and in return I had fabulous pictures. He was amazing at gettin the attention of children and keepin it lol. I have recommended Colin to a few friends who are also getting married as the quality... of my pictures where outstanding and still get many remarks about them. Thank you so much for capturing my special day. I would highly recommend Colin from day one of us booking our wedding he helped me to decide what style of pictures I wanted. I highly recommend him to any others wishing to get married and wish him every success in the future, I can’t thank him enough for my gorgeous pictures of the most important day of my life!!!

Janice Murphy


 Couldn't agree more Lora. Your day was captured beautifully and Colin seems like a really nice guy. I have attended a couple of weddings where he was the photographer and he was always good fun.

Lora Caven


What can I say? The best day of my life captured on film by a photographer who really listens (few and far between). Colin, you were a pleasure to work with and I appreciate you understanding our desires and embracing them. I cannot wait to see our album. Thanks again for being so great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Karen Docherty


Thank-you so much Colin for the beautiful photographs of my Tiaras and Jewellery. I cannot wait to get them uploaded onto my website. I will be recommending you to everyone I know who is getting married. Thank-you.xx

We had a absolute fantastic day at the Cruin, the wedding photos are first class, from every little bit of detail to the funny posing shots, we were so relaxed and had a fantastic time. The selection you gave us to choose from is brill but omg!!! How can we choose only some they all look amazing, the jetty and tree shots are stunning, amazing photography skills Colin, we are so grateful for all your hard work on our wedding day!

Kathryn Scott


Loved Amy and Raymond's wedding photos. You have captured the magic of the day perfectly. Thank you.


Vivien and Steve Hanson (6th June 2009)


We used CIA photography for our wedding and can honestly say we could not be happier with the service or the results! Colin was an absolute pleasure to have as our photographer on the big day and put ourselves and all the people involved in the photos at ease – we were all relaxed and laughing and joking all the way through.

The photos themselves and the album are just stunning, Colin really captured the spirit of the day and has given us such wonderful memories to treasure from our wedding day. Everyone commented on the day on how great the photographer was, and everyone who has seen the finished album has absolutely loved it. We are also really impressed that we get to have the disc with all of the high-res images and the copyright so we can get our own reprints anytime – so many photographers do not provide this service and really then there are so many extra costs if you want to get more photos.

So thanks again Colin for being such a big part of our special day, the whole day was perfect and you were a big part of making it that way. You really stood out from the other photographers we saw and we are so glad we chose CIA. We would highly recommend you to anybody looking for a photographer for any occasion and we certainly wouldn’t go to anyone else in the future!

Veronica Stone


Hi Colin just a wee note to let you know l've viewed my album disc love love love it!

Ross & Cheryl Turnbull


Hi Colin, Thank you so much for capturing our wedding at the end of October! The photos were amazing and family & friends keep asking to see them! You're attention to detail is second to none which resulted in fantastic shot composition! Finally you stayed longer than planned to get some evening shots of us, we cant thank you enough for such a great job and would recommend you to anybody looking for a great photographer!
