    I recently hired Rhowena/Scrumptious Food Photography to do a photo shoot of our cakes and cupcakes. I was thoroughly impressed with how flexible Rhowena was in terms of my schedule. Most importantly, the photos were absolutely great. I genuinely believe that they made a huge improvement to my website and added credibility to my marketing efforts. I highly recommend Scrumptious Food Photography to anyone or any business in need of professional food photography.

  • Rhowena recently photographed a selection of my canapés to be included on my website. She was very professional and I was extremely pleased with the resulting photographs.

    She arrived at my kitchen with a selection of lights and equipment as well as an interesting variety of props for the shoot. We spent a while discussing my requirements and I was impressed that she let me make suggestions as to how I wanted the canapés to look.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Rhowena as a very professional photographer.

    The first thing I’ll say about Rhowena MacCuish is that she is a joy to work with. Professional, personable, and her photos are stunning. Rhowena is a highly talented photographer and she has taken fantastic photos of me, a terminally camera-shy person. I can’t recommend her work highly enough. She knows how to get the best from her subjects…. she is truly a great talent.

    Rhowena was a pleasure to work with and flexible on her pricing structures to suit our small floristry business. She was organized, on time and brought all her own kit, with a pc link up to view images immediately, as well as providing photo editing services afterwards. We received our final images promptly via memory stick and have used them on a variety of marketing media. Fantastic, will use again!
