A few nice words from some previous couples 

My husband and I booked Derek and Elaine for our special day. From the first day of booking till the end of the wedding we received the absolute best of service and honestly couldn't have asked for more. Sunshine photography work to the highest of standards to make sure they captured every moment of our special day. We had an absolute blast doing photos when this was the one thing we were nervous about and cannot wait to see our completed album! We decided to go ahead with getting a video of our big day done cause your only going to do it once so why would you not want to capture every minute of it. When we received the video and pictures we were overjoyed with how amazing the quality is and how emotional the video made us. It was beautiful and they couldn't have done a better job. All round an amazing bunch of people with nothing but the greatest intentions for your big day. Wish we could do it all over again and thank u so much guys. Delighted and so so grateful! If your looking for a photographer for your big day I honest couldn't recommend anything better.

We booked Derek and Elaine for our wedding in May after meeting them at the Grand Central wedding show. We knew straight away we wanted to book them, their work is stunning and their videoas were so creative, and we got on great! We are absolutely delighted with the wedding pictures and our wedding video makes me cry (with joy) everytime i watch it, don’t know how we will narrow it down to put some in an album. We can’t thank Derek and Elaine enough, they are both such lovely people and were honestly a delight to have at our wedding. In particular, the wedding video has allowed us to see parts of the day which we missed at the time, for  example all of our guests arriving and having a laugh before the ceremony. We honestly can’t recommend Sunshine Photography enough. Great people, great photos, great video! 


Sorry I havent been in contact since the wedding have finally came back down to earth haha but just wanted to take the time to thank you both so much for everything again! Everything was so relaxed and professional from the moment you  arrived, and nothing was a problem for you and made us feel very at ease. All of our family and friends said the same too, as i said as well we have recommended you to everyone we know or came across who is getting married. Iv had a wee nosey at the pictures on your website and they are great i am even more excited now to see all our wedding photos, i know they will be stunning.

Hi Derek

Just wanted to let you know I absolutely love my photos!! You and Elaine done a fantastic job and me and Kristoffer are over the moon. We just came back our honeymoon so we still have to choose the photos for our albums but I just wanted to email and say thank you so much. You both went over and above the job role of just a Photographer, like Elaine getting under my HUGE dress to put my shoes on so my bridesmaids wouldn't mess up their hair or make up and for Derek making the groom at ease before the wedding and having a laugh with the guys before the wedding with the photos. Kris told me it helped with his nerves. I am deeply grateful. We are sooo glad we chose Sunshine Photography to capture our day.

Thanks Again!!

Nichola McTaggart.


Afternoon Guys,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for yesterday. You guys were fab. Special thanks to Elaine for calming me before the ceremony!

We had a fantastic day & can't wait to see our beautiful pictures. 

Thanks again

Laura & Stuart, Burnhouse Manor. 


Thanks Derek, obviously preaching to the converted by saying this on your personal Facebook page but just want to say how impressed Siobhan and I were with you and Elaine yesterday!! You both helped us so much with your knowledge of the venue The VU and the setting. When I get a minute to catch my breath I'll be posting on the sunshine photography page and sharing our compliments.  It was a great day all in but we haven't underestimated the part you guys played in making it less stressful! We can't wait to see the photos in a couple of week. Cheers

Hi both,

Returned from honeymoon early this morning and have just picked up the photos.

Still looking through but fair to say a magnificent job done!!!

Also loved the little extra time lapse DVD.... Fantastic 

Thanks again




Thanks so much for yesterday, you were both brilliant!
We had an amazing day and we're looking forward to seeing it all over again!!!

Best wishes,

Claire & Robert 


Thank you so much for photographing our wedding day, it was truly the best day of our lives and you have helped create memories we will never forget. 
You both made us feel so relaxed and helped us stay calm when the nerves started to kick in. Your professionalism and friendliness is second to none and we can't recommend yu highly enough.
Elaine & Martin,  Airth Castle


Hi you two,
Thank you so much for all your help on our Wedding day, you guys were AMAZING! It was so much fun having pics taken by you both, you definitely helped calm the nerves by being so lovely, friendly, professional....the list goes on!

So many folk have commented on how fantastic you both were and you really added to the magic of our day! We had the best day and I am so so glad we had you there to capture it all for us!


Elaine, thank you so much for helping us girls get ready....we had a great time and I'm not sure the girls would have managed my dress without you ;o) Derek, all the guys have commented on how you helped calm their nerves during the morning pics and thank you so much for coming along and freezing with us at the loch!

I have had a nosey at the pics you have added so far and they are fantastic....I am so excited to see the rest!!! Everyone in the pics looks very much at ease and I put that down to you both!

I will definitely tell everyone I can how fantastic you both are and I am so, so happy that I chose you both to share our day with us!

Thank you so much again.....will be in touch again soon!!

Just a note to say Thank You so much for our amazing wedding albums. The Metallica Storybook is out of this world and the photos really capture the feel of our day. Everyone we have shown them to have been blown away with how amazing they are. We just cannot thank you both enough

With lots of love

Your wonderful gift to us was the Amazing Images you captured of our Special Day

Thank you for Everything
Laura & Kenny Downs


We just wanted to say a Huge Thank You for the very important part you played in our wedding day. We are absolutely delighted with the photographs and now have the unenviable task of picking the selection for our albums.
We had so many comments from guests about how fantastic you were on the day- the best accolade we reckon.

Thank you so much again
Gill,Duncan and Chloe


Thank you so much for all you hard work producing our wedding album, all our family & friends are very happy with the results.
I know a lot of our guests have been recommending your services as you were both friendly  professional on the day.
I would also like to say a huge Thank You to Elaine, as without her i still would not be in my wedding dress, she really did go above and beyond the call of duty. I would be a blubbering wreck without her kind words and help before our wedding service.

Thanks again
Claire, David & Lara

Derek & Elaine

Paul and I would like to thank you both for our stunning wedding album. We absolutely love outs and the two mothers albums. What a fantastic job you's done. You made us, our family and friends all feel very relaxed and it shows with our brilliant photos. 
Thank you for giving us everlasting memories of our special day. 

Best wishes Paul, Lorraine Brown


Dear All at Sunshine.

One more big final thank you to you both for your friendly and professional service, not just on the day but before and after. We love our album and parents books. We wont hesitate in recommending you to anyone who asks. 

Thanks again

John and Lorna O'Boyle


May I take this opportunity to thank you for doing such an excellent job on our wedding day.  We were delighted with all aspects of your friendly, efficient and very professional service.  The photos are of excellent quality and we are very happy with the wide range of shots with which you immortalised our special day.  On the day itself I was struck by how organised and helpful you were and in a completely unobtrusive way. You seemed to be always thinking 2 steps ahead, which meant we faced absolutely no hassle or delays and we could relax and enjoy our day, knowing that the photography was in the very best of hands.  We would not hesitate to recommend you to friends.

Grahame and Fiona

 Hi Derek, Elaine and Amanda 
I just wanted to thank you very much for everything that you did for us on Sunday. 
You certainly received a few complimentary comments - and the fact that my mum and dad praised you is very particularly special!
You were very professional, making sure all shots were 'just right' and knowing exactly which ones to take. Elaine, you could not have been any more supportive and caring - especially looking after Melissa and my dad above and beyond the call of duty - and I want to say a special thank you for that. 
 We appreciated all your hard work and really look forward to seeing the results!
 Talk soon.

Hi guys

We just wanted to say thank you for all you did for us on Thursday! You were professional throughout the day and kept the head when things were falling apart! 

On that note, I'd like to apologise for turning into a bit of a nightmare bride! Didn't realise how difficult it would be to get people in the right place at the right time! The phrase "herding cats" springs to mind! 

Thanks once again and looking forward to catching up when we're all back from holiday! 

Claire and Steven 

Hi Derek, 

We have just got through our wedding photos, I love having them all!! Thank you so much there are fantastic ones, I have no idea how we will narrow them down but I'll make a start on that next week and aim to get them 

Thanks a million

Angela ..xx

Hi Derek and Elaine,
Thank you so much for our disc of photos they're great! Thank you both so much for your efforts on the day, the brollies, confetti and tissues you brought were god send..thanks 

 Now the tricky part trying to narrow down for our album. 

Gillian and Chris 

Thank you very much for doing our photography for our wedding day, we are just back from honeymoon on Wednesday and got the photos they are fantastic!  I am emailing from my home account as I can't access work at the moment.  
I was wondering if you can tell me how much it is to add pages to our album and how many photos can you fit per page?
Nikki and Graeme

Hi Derek and Elaine
