Gary was recommended to Sandra and I by another professional photographer. This is a true sign of excellence in my opinion when one professional recommends another. In industry terms I was informed that Gary was a wizard technically. It was explained that Gary's understanding of lighting, composition and using the setting would be a masterclass in itself. I can say with conviction that Gary delivered this and then some. Sandra and I learned that it wasn't just his technical ability that set him apart - but his customer service skills and positivity. During the pre wedding shoot and on the day itself it was us that told Gary to stop- not the other way around. He would say "let's just get one more shot..." Our only regret was not having a place for him at the dinner table on the day...as this is a man that is not only a fantastic photographer but one of the nicest guys you could meet. Gary, thank you! Thank you for helping Sandra and I capture the most memorable day in our lives thus far. There is no doubt that you will continue to stand out from your peers and provide the same level of service for others. Best wishes to you and your family, Josh and Sandra

Gary was the photographer for our wedding at Altskeith on 31st August, we live in England so chose Gary on recommendation from the owner of our wedding venue and are so pleased we did! Would give Gary 100 star review if I could, he is such a talented photographer with really creative ideas,we could not be happier with our photos. I was a bit apprehensive about having my photos taken all day as I'm not a lover of being in front of the camera, but I needn't of worried as Gary made me and all our guests feel at ease. We were blown away when we received our album and will treasure it forever. So glad we chose Gary to capture our big day, awesome photographer and a really great guy! Thanks x

When my husband Fraser and I first came across Gary's photographs we were instantly taken by them as he had photographed a lot of weddings at our venue. On researching some more we loved the way that Gary captured the different moments of the day so naturally. We arranged to meet with Gary a few months prior to our wedding and were delighted that we had chosen him to photograph our day. Gary spent plenty of time going through everything bit by bit, explaining timings, how the day usually goes and what would be expected of us. Overall he completely put us at ease! Gary's communication both prior to and after our wedding was fabulous, he was always there whenever I needed a question answered and was happy to help. On our wedding day Gary completely lived up to our expectations. He was wonderful. I think the main thing that we would compliment Gary on (other than his beautiful photographs of course) is the fact he is such a genuinely nice, down to earth man. He fit in so well with our wedding party and managed to get everything and everyone in order for the photographs. He even helped transport all our dresses over to our venue to save us the added stress! Overall, we cannot praise Gary enough and would just like to thank him so much for helping to make our day so perfect

Gary photographed our wedding last month at Lochgreen house hotel and couldn't recommend him highly enough. From the first contact he was very professional but also made the experience personal. We initially did an engagement shoot and the photos were so creative everyone commented on how great they were. On the day of the wedding he was relaxed and just took photos that captured the day without getting in the way. He felt more like a guest then a photographer and all our friends, family and suppliers commented on how great he was even before they saw the photos. We got our photos back really quickly and really loved them. He uses loads of different photograph techniques which make the photos look amazing even on a wet day. Really can't fault him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.
Thank you Gary

Gary photographed our wedding on the 30th of July this year and I cannot recommend him enough. He was an absolute joy to work with on the day and made the whole process so easy and seem effortless. He was lovely to all our guests and put us at complete ease very quickly. Our wedding photos are stunning. They capture the whole day making it feel like we are reliving it when going through them and he captured so many moments that we didn't see. Since the wedding, his professionalism and efficiency remain and we have received our photos and album a lot quicker than we had anticipated. We couldn't be any happier with it....thank you Gary!
Sandy & Arlene
We booked Gary 2 years prior to our wedding as we'd been to a family wedding and he was so good, very friendly and his work is absolutely amazing we didn't want to get anyone else. My hubby and I are now struggling to decide which of the fabulous 850 photos we would like in the album!! Gary is without a doubt the best in the business and we are so lucky that he captured all the stages of our wedding even going that extra bit and staying until late in the night to capture my daughter and her friends performing a special dance.
Donald & Lindsey
Gary was fantastic, from start to finish. He has an incredible eye for detail and making each picture tell a story. We both love all of our photos and everyone we have shown them to has been blown away by them. From the moment we met Gary, he put us at ease and made getting our photos taken an enjoyable experience. He was never short of ideas or making the most of our surroundings and captured some wonderful and unique shots of our wedding day. He even managed to coax our shy uncooperative daughter to join in getting photos taken. He truly is an artist in his field and we could not recommend him highly enough!
Hazel & Bobby
I want to recognise the fantastic and professional photography delivered by Gary Bonar Photography....Gary provided exactly what we wanted and absolutely captured our day. It was a small wedding and we didn't want formal photos and Gary got it right.. The pictures are natural and modern and caught guests in moments of laughter, discussion and enjoying themselves. I'm delighted with our photographs, they are beautiful, interesting and have a unique style which is the brand of Gary Bonar Photography...Gary was also patience, blended into the crowd and has given us pictures that contain happy memories of our fabulous day!! Thanks v much Gary and we highly recommend you to capture memories for weddings or any occasion. Hazel and Bobby Oct 2014

Picked up our wedding album tonight, absolute superb, so pleased with it but did not expect anything less. Gary is not only a very talented and passionate photographer but on the day was such a comfort to me in terms of keeping me calm with how in control he was. We had actually booked another photographer and cancelled once we seen Gary's work and it was the best decision we made. I would highly recommend Gary to capture your dream day, Iain & Christine x
Clare & Kevin
Five stars are not enough for how amazing Gary is! I have just picked up our album and we are totally delighted with it, it's so different from any other wedding album that we have seen, very unique. Gary has managed to capture so many special moments that we missed on the day and so many personal and emotional moments that we can now treasure forever. Not only is Gary a genuis at photography but he is fantastic to have there with you on the day. He had our shy flowergirls eating out of his hands within minutes and he kept me calm and reassured. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, then you need to go with Gary, you won't regret it!!
David & Laura
I can't speak highly enough of Gary. Absolutely amazing photographer, and such great fun too!!!! Fantastic with children, and can quickly turn a shy scowl into a big beaming smile. Has such amazing vision and creates stunning pictures in places you would never imagine. Can't wait to see our album, only downfall was that I loved all the pictures so much that I really struggled to pick which ones to use!!!! Have ordered a few individual prints and the quality is just outstanding. I would recommend him to any bride-to-be in a heartbeat.
Alan & Mari-Clare
"Gary photographed our wedding in July 2011 at West in Glasgow Green. Would have booked him on his previous work alone, then met him which sealed the deal. Gary was totally focused but so professional it felt effortlessly so. Which meant we were relaxed and actually enjoyed having our photographs taken, which I think comes across. Thanks again Gary!"
James & Lauren

Graham & Susan
"We cannot thank Gary enough for our photos, he was amazing on our wedding and totally delivered exactly what we were looking for, as we didn't want to be away from my guests for long. He was brilliant thanks so much ;-)) very happy all round..."
"Having just had my first child I wanted to capture the very first moments. Gary made that very easy and relaxed. I have just seen my proofs and finding it so hard to choose due to the very high standard - all photos captured are wee bit different from the normal photography snap shots you normally get and i just love love love them, will definitely use Gary again and recommend to all friends and family looking to have moments captured
