Testimonials

THANK YOU to the incredible friends, clients and associates that I've been lucky enough to work with over the years!

 

We are so pleased we chose Scott to be our wedding photographer - he completely exceeding our expectations! One of the top 3 comments and feedback still to this day about our wedding is "Your photographer was AMAZING!! Where did you find him??". 

Scott is always so polite, super friendly and willing to go above and beyond expectations. Scott beautifully captured all the emotions of the day and all the little details that made it personal to us. His photos really tell the story of the day in the best way possible. Our pictures look like they belong in a magazine, hands down the best we have ever seen. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for an incredibly talented, imaginative and personable wedding photographer. Words can't express how grateful we are. You rock Scott!!

"There is nothing worse than a forced picture. Moments are to be captured, not constructed. Scott Murdoch understands this distinction– with the finesse of a true artist. Shooting with Scott is always a pleasure; a collaboration in every sense. Scott made it fun, glamorous, creative, and most of all, natural. You find yourself wondering why you were ever nervous in the first place. As a model, young woman, and self-proclaimed dork, it can be hard to find a good fit with photographers that understand the insecurities, lack of comfort and concerns that people feel when staring into a camera lens. What’s the hardest part of shooting with Scott? Managing not to laugh long enough to take the picture."

– Genevieve Smith











"Not only is Scott an awesomely talented photographer, but as importantly, he's a genuinely good person and a pure pleasure to be around. From our engagement shoot through to our big day, he was happy, approachable, calm and collected. He listened, contributed, and collaborated always. Beyond professional, we felt confident that Scott had taken the time to understand our vision and cared as much as we did about capturing our big day, in our way. 

Alongside the "standard shot-list" and traditional photos, Scott has a remarkable ability to spot and capture the most authentic, candid interactions between friends and family. A true gift, through his lens and gorgeous photos, time slowed down and showed us a "fly on the wall" perspective of a day that so swiftly flew by for both of us."

"Scott Murdoch is a professional in every aspect of his craft. He has a generous spirit and he invests in the work he delivers. He did an excellent series of photographs with dozens of young artists at my theatre festival. They were all so thrilled to have professional quality photos to take home. We even had a photo of his become an iconic image in the marketing for our not-for-profit organization. Without a doubt, Scott has a good eye for composition and will bring the best out of his subject."

"Scott took photos of our week old twin baby girls. He came to our home which was super convenient. He was great with the girls and had the most awesome picture ideas. There were so many great photos taken that we had trouble deciding which ones to develop. Our walls are now filled with the most lovely pictures of our precious bundles. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer!"

“From our wedding day to the birth of our three children, Scott has been there for us capturing all of our major milestones with the most beautiful photos. We have such a blast with him, we couldn't imagine shooting with anyone else! He makes us feel so comfortable that sometimes we forget we're having photos done, and the outcome is always amazing. Thanks for everything Scott, we love you, and your photos!!”

“I can't think of a single fault nor a single complaint with the whole process from arranging the shoot date to the shoot which was efficient, creative and a satisfying experience. I felt I was in the hands of a director who knew how actors work, knew what he wanted, and was efficient with time so improvised shots could be undertaken. The finished product left many choices, all of which could have been used. The lab work and 8X10s printed up were reasonably priced.”

“Scott's artistry with the lens and professionalism are top flight. For this camera-shy person, his easy manner and encouragement made posing for the lens a fun and relaxing experience. I highly recommend Scott as a photographer who will capture the best of you on film, to thereby present to the casting world.”

“My client (a major Canadian brand) was looking to update their website and required photography…Scott came through!  Not only was he reliable and very knowledgeable, he went above and beyond to make recommendations about how to make the shoot successful.  We had to shoot while the store was open and Scott was very courteous and professional so as not to interfere with the business and customers.  His flexibility was greatly appreciated!  I look forward to the opportunity to work with Scott again.”

“I have worked with Scott Murdoch and Five by Five Photography on at least three corporate events I have planned recently. Working for a large telecommunications company, capturing the brand image and meeting ambiance have always been important for event photography. Scott has always worked tirelessly to ensure my requests were met. He always carries himself with professionalism and an obvious passion for photography. I would recommend his service to anyone looking for a reliable corporate event photographer.”

– Kristen Greflund

 

“I had the pleasure of working with Scott on a client shoot a few months ago. His professionalism and attention to detail was impeccable. The client was thrilled with the photo shoot. All in all the outcome was outstanding and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.”
