I am an experienced and professional wedding photographer, providing natural and time lasting wedding photography with an emphasis on story telling
A wordsmith once said “There can be a lot of longevity in the repetition of things being told again and again in a variety of ways”, and its something that struck a note with me because I am a wedding photographer. Over the years I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings, but many would think what I do can be repetitive but I can assure you, it’s not. Looking from the outside weddings may appear to be the same, but from within, they’re all very different. This is why I love being a wedding photographer as besides the variation of what I do, I love the smiles and the unexpectedness of the day, and I love the fact that your wedding is unrepeatable and will only happen once.
I live just outside Glasgow in a town called Helensburgh, which is near Loch Lomond. Its a good location for me as besides being local for Loch Lomond weddings, its an easy jump-off point for weddings in Glasgow, Argyll and across central Scotland. I photographed my first wedding in 1987 and to tell you the truth, I was a bag of nerves, but I enjoyed the experience. The couple loved their pictures, and from that moment on I was hooked upon being a wedding photographer. These days I still get a buzz at the prospect of photographing a wedding, which I’m happy to say is something that comes through confidence built on many years experience.
My approach to wedding photography is relaxed and definitely hands-off
Many of photographers use long and complicated words for what they do, but I don’t as I just call it wedding photography. I observe rather than organise and prefer to stand back and capture the day as it unfolds and I’m definitely not going to boss you about, contrive pictures or make people jump up and down. The only time I get involved is during the group pictures and the newlyweds portraits, as I need to tell people where to stand and what to do. For the rest of the time its just me capturing your day as it happens.
A wedding is the start of a new journey for two people, and as a photographer I am lucky enough to share a small part of this journey with you – by taking pictures you will cherish, and most of all, let you re-live the day for many years to come.
As well as Helensburgh and Loch Lomond, I photograph weddings across central Scotland, including Glasgow, Argyll, Ayrshire, Dumbartonshire, Renfrewshire and Stirlingshire. And always with a smile…
Its easy to see when two people love each other, especially at a wedding. Same sex weddings are no different, which is why I’ve been offering a genuinely GLBT friendly service for gay and lesbian couples for over ten years
