“I did a ‘portrait’ photoshoot with Fiona […- she] made me feel the most beautiful woman alive and the results were absolutely gorgeous! I was a little nervous and Fiona made me feel utterly relaxed and not at all self-conscious, coaxing some really lovely shots out of me. It was a really fun day too – starting with a professional hair and make up artist session to get me ready for the camera, and a series of shots in all my favourite dresses. Highly recommend! – Sarra Earl

 

“When I booked Fiona for a photoshoot I explained I was not confident in front of the camera. Right away she put me at ease. For most of the time I didn’t really notice she was taking pictures and I thoroughly enjoyed the shoot. She made me feel relaxed and as such the images that she produced were exactly what I wanted.” – Kimberley Turner

 

Natural, beautiful and fun, Fiona created exquisite and unique photos which captured the magic of our day perfectly. Our guests commented on how unobtrusive and relaxed the whole photo affair was, no awkward posing and self conscious family shots! Fiona and [her assistant] Francesca took the best bits of our stunning venue and turned it into a dream backdrop to our photographs. She made a gorgeous story book of our day and there is definitely a Fairytale-esque feel to our album, I could not have hoped for anything better. We have been asked so many times ‘who was your photographer?’ Naturally we are only too pleased to share! With much love and a million thanks, Bethan and Kevin Cole

 

“It was wonderful to have you fly to Rome to photograph our wedding, kit and all! …Your photos were magical, and you have a wonderful eye for the unobvious shot that really says who we are, and captivates us perfectly! It was great that you spoke Italian and were able to make our Italian relatives comfortable which meant we have some beautiful and memorable photos of them, and that means a lot to us. Thank you so much Fiona for making our wedding memories so very special. ” Ross and Francesca

 

‘Thank you, Fiona. What brilliant photos every one! Wonderful effects and soft focus w long lens.’ – Sir Nicholas Mander

 

‘Fiona has photographed several of our family occasions (two Christenings, a close friend’s wedding and a First Holy Communion) and we were incredibly happy with the results, which we now have a wonderful record of for our memories. She managed to catch the mood of each occasion in a unique way and understood what we required and managed on one occasion to organise a very large crowd. It was a complete joy to work with her – she is very professional and at the same time a friendly, kind and enthusiastic person to have around. She also has a great eye for the spontaneous, catching numerous unique moments, alongside the more formal shots we also asked for. We can highly recommend Fiona. Our only regret is that we didn’t know about her when we got married!!’ Maria Kramer, architect and Mark Dolan, comedian

 

‘Fiona, I can’t wait to meet you! Your work is really very special.’ Paola

 

‘Dear Fiona, Wonderful pictures! …Just to let you know that my parents absolutely loved the picture I sent them.’ Alexandra Shipulina, bride

 

‘There is nothing sweeter than reviewing these images now – a good 2 months later…you have captured so much that is now possible to see…the moment being so intensely lived that any distance was impossible. I’m just in floods…so touched by the LOVE in every frame. You have done such a wonderful job of this Fiona.’ Jan Glennie Smith, mother of the bride

 

“To all those getting wed and all who need a superb photographer, I recommend my friend Fiona Campbell . First met her when she created Narnia in her flat and welcomed the whole block to drop in, join the party and see her fantastic work. Someone with such a warm and welcoming heart will obviously add to your special day and any day ! Very creative and skilled – take a look at her website” – from my lovely friend, former neighbour and former picture editor of the Guardian, Jo Alexander

 

“Our photos are stunning, Fiona has captured very precious moments in such a way that not only are the photos artistically beautiful to look at, but I feel like she has instinctively understood who we are and what was important to us. She is very easy to work with and because of her technical expertise and experience we felt confident that she knew what she was doing, which meant that we could relax and enjoy ourselves.” Doug and Sheena Guthrie

“There’s something about seeing a photograph shot through a window that gives you a slight tingle, as if you’re peeping into a scene that you shouldn’t. That voyeuristic nature has been captured in a classic street photography fashion by Fiona Campbell, whose Martin Parr-esk shots with a 90s twist made me take note. This portfolio of shots has been cleverly constructed to demonstrate the same theme but through three different scenarios. An intriguing set of work that glimmers all kinds of emotions: laughter, sorrow, wonder, and makes me want to explore her reportage photography even more.” Vicky Chau, Owner, Chaudigital

 

‘I just wanted to tell you how great these photos are. You have real talent.’ Mark Conway, formerly head of video production at Harry Nash

 

‘Fiona Campbell is a genius. She did a fantastic job with the photos of our baby’s christening. She makes Annie Leibowitz look like a rookie.’ – Mark Dolan, comedian and broadcaster.

 

‘Fiona was an absolute pleasure to work with. She works as a team with other vendors she just met to make sure that they all can provide their best services for the client on the day of the wedding. For a wedding planner that is paramount to making the day flow smoothly. And her photos are just stunning. She captured Rome like a native! I highly recommend Fiona as a wedding photographer.’ – Brenda Babcock, wedding planner www.italia-celebrations.com

 

‘Fiona excels at capturing the moments. Naturally spontaneous, she adapts well and interacts well with guests and is a pleasure to have around as part of your special day. Other photographers I met were condescending, rigid in thought or quite pretentious or clearly in wedding photography for the money. Fiona is naturally a giving, caring person who is ideally suited to combining her creative and people skills as a wedding photographer. I have so many wonderful photos from my wedding which all viewers have found exceptional.’ Tamara Lucas

 

‘Dear Fiona, Thank you so much for the beautiful photos of my ordination. You are a very talented photographer.’ Paul Keane, Priest.

 

I have had the pleasure of working with Fiona Campbell as her stylist and Make up artist on a test wedding shoot. I have worked along side many accomplished professional photographers including The Douglas Bros, Andrew Douglas, Masoud Golsorkhi, Moni Hayworth and Rankin. Fiona has a natural flair with those that are her subjects, she has a talent with both adults and children, an ability to draw the best out of them for the mood needed for her shots keeping the atmosphere relaxed and spontaneous. She is calm, professional and works out the best solutions to potential problems calmly and efficiently. She has that rare talent of timing that defines those that are professional photographers and those that are not. I look forward to other collaborations with Fiona. If you are considering potential photographers for your special day, I cannot imagine a more perfect person to sensitively capture your wedding day.’ Stephanie Buttle

 

‘I think your pictures of [my daughter’s wedding] are GREAT! Absolutely lovely. How can I order some – I don’t want to wait for the bride and groom to get their act together!’ – mother of the bride
