Over the years we’ve restored thousands of photos and the response has almost always been very positive.
Here are just a few comments we’ve had from our customers.

James, thank you so very much, I am so very impressed with what you have done and so very grateful!
Melanie Q, Gordon, NSW

“Thank you, you’ve brought tears to my eyes, so many happy precious memories I can share with the rest of the family. I received the hard copy prints yesterday. Just perfect, thank you so much.”
Andrea, Wahroonga, Sydney NSW

“You have done a great job. It’s little short of a miracle, what you have recovered.”
Bruce M, ACT

I just wanted to send a massive thanks to James and the team. I received my document and it is absolutely beautiful. Also the framing that was chosen for me is wonderful and suits it beautifully. I would definitely recommend Vivid Recollection for this kind of work.
David B, Brisbane QLD

“My 88 year old mum was so thrilled with your print she wept tears of joy. In fact she thought you had restored the original. She said “I’ve never seen it looking so beautiful.” It wasn’t until I was showing my youngest son both side by side that she realised her Mother’s day gift was your fabulous copy.”
Terry O, Canberra ACT

“You did a beautiful job. It generated a lot of conversation between me and my sister. Her recollection of the photo was sharper than mine because she was the older, more composed goody-two-shoes on the left and I was the younger tear-away with her skirt turned up on the right. Apparently I gave the photographer a real challenge.”
Denise S, Sydney NSW

“Grandad passed nearly 30 years ago and all we’ve had is a damaged black and white photo. We now have a colourised, perfectly restored image of him in our home. Incredible work. We are very happy customers indeed!”
Paul G, Canberra ACT

“Thank you so much for your help, it is a great result. Totally unexpected. The photo was a hit with the family.”
Paul L, Randwick, Sydney NSW

“The family were delighted with the photos and the restoration, which was the subject of much discussion at our lunch yesterday. I really appreciated you making my deadline. It was a great job.”
Linda S, Sydney NSW

“Received the prints today. Thank you so much – they look brilliant! A perfect copy… This is one of our favourite photos of our parents’ childhood.”
Hannah S, Ashfield, Sydney NSW

“You have done a fabulous job on the bridal photograph. I looked at it and could see my mother especially the eyes. Thank you so much.”
Tiana P, ACT

“10 out of 10. Excellent result of the photo restoration and rapid, friendly service.”
Allan D, ACT

“The images look fantastic and I’m very happy with them! They look extremely realistic and very well coloured. I really look forward to giving them as a present.”
Daniel Z, Woodville North, Adelaide SA

“It is absolutely magnificent, I’m in awe of how it looks. I will certainly recommend you and your company to my contacts in WA.”
Dennis H, Perth WA
