We would like to highly recommend McCosh photography.

John is a total professional who clearly loves what he does. As a bride and groom you rely on your photographer immensely to capture all your special moments on one of the best days of your lives.

John went above and beyond the expectation for us, and we are so happy to have such beautiful quality photos to look back on and remember our day by. John was patient, creative, considerate and made our day an absolute breeze.

It is not easy to choose a wedding photographer, but we believe we made the right decision with McCosh photography.

Mr and Mrs Collins


Thank you so much for your time and effort in taking photos for my graduation day. The photos were exceptional and really captured the moment. I really liked how you could pick out the best places for everyone to stand and how everyone should be positioned in front of the camera to get the best photos. You were very easy to get along with and great to deal with over text. I would highly recommend your services to anyone who asked.

Hi John!

Hope you are doing well! It's been a wee while since our wedding and I feel like we're just starting to setting down now and relax after the business of it all.

Just wanted to say a huge Thank You to you for all your hard work on our photos, albums, editing and canvas. Everything looks amazing. It's so nice to flick through all the photos and be reminded of our special day.

Please make sure to use some of the photos from our wedding to advertise your business on Fb and on your website!

If you would like some help picking some pics out i'd be more then happy to help. (Up to you )


Hi John,

Apologies that it's taken me a few days to respond. We're finally back in Australia and things will return to a level of normalcy.

Tony and I both want to say we really appreciated your dedication and thoughtfulness on our special day. The photos that you've turned around so quickly look amazing and we are grateful as people who couldn't attend from overseas can get some perspective of how the day unfolded.

We've had many comments on how you seamlessly fitted into the background and how you managed to capture some great natural moments of people together. Thank you also for staying later than anticipated that was above and beyond the call of duty.

We look forward to seeing the rest of the photos. I'll definitely be recommending your services.

Thanks again and look forward to hearing from you


If you need a photographer look no further, John is the most dedicated person I know who loves his job and it shows in the photographs he takes. Thank you John for capturing our wedding day so beautifully, they will make our memories last a life time.

Steve & Phillippa

Thanks John for your hard work and dedication to the photography at our wedding day. You really were amazing and helped make the day stress free, you made sure we got exactly what we wanted, we didn’t have to worry about a thing!

The guests had nothing but positive comments about the amazing job you did on the day. The lead up to the day was made easy and we were able to communicate easily with you, and the follow up was great.

The photos were amazing! Thank you for getting the preview photos up so fast- it was great to be able to show them to guests before they went on their way. What a lovely man.

We would definitely recommend for anyone needing a photographer, and will definitely be in touch next time we need a photographer!

Thank you John for doing such an amazing job on our wedding photos, you captured the day beautifully, all our family members commented how well you did and how wonderful you are to work with. 

I would recommend you to anyone. Our photos were available for us to view very quickly and you were more than willing to adjust or add any effects to photos we wanted. 

Thank you again for a wonderful job.

I recently had the opportunity to work with John on a wedding and I can say I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer for their special day or occasion.

Amazing work and so professional. 

The whole time he was not pushy and remained calm which is very important for the bride and family on the day.

Communication leading up to the ceremony was always prompt and helpful which was great since we live overseas.

I would highly recommend you because on top of all that, the photos are great! Your creativity made for us having some unique photos! 

Cameron & Shannon

I had to check out your gallery, great job, these are some of the better wedding photos I have seen.

Hi John, 

We have just seen the photos on the website and they look fantastic! You have done such a wonderful job and went above and beyond what we could have expected. We are happy for you to use any of the images to promote your photography.

Looking forward to catching up with you to discuss the album.


Wayne and Angela Fluhler

Thank you once again for being our photographer, you were great and I could not have chosen anyone to do a better job than what you did for us on our big day so THANK YOU once again.

Tabs n Paul :)

I highly recommend McCosh Photography.

After trying other portrait studios (where they lure you in with a free sitting and one free print, the sitting only lasts 10 minutes and you only get 4 photos out of it, they then print the worst photo as the free one and basically hold you to ransom because you can't bear to leave the really cute photos of your kids),

John's way of doing things was like a breath of fresh air. He spent a whole hour and took more than one hundred excellent photos, touched up some of the best ones and offered to touch up any others that I particularly liked. I got all of the photos on a disk so I could email them to relatives or post them on Facebook, whatever I like. 

Thanks John, I'd definitely recommend you to anyone and will be using you again in future!

Tracy, Hamilton

"You do such a great job John. Very professional and extremely patient and helpful. You have the perfect personality for your chosen profession. 

You were extremely helpful and went the extra mile, even though it wasn't my wedding day, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Your photos were great and really captured the day perfectly." 

Kimberley McLaren (Bridesmaid)

My husband & I highly recommend McCosh photography. If you are looking for a professional, efficient photographer. John takes excellent photos, has a fun personality with a creative flair. 

We felt comfortable with John (our 2 year old adored him!) and are absolutely thrilled with the photos he has taken of our family. We will definitely use McCosh Photography again in the future.
