SAME SEX WEDDINGS

GLBT FRIENDLY PHOTOGRAPHY
SAME SEX

Weddings

I am a GLBT friendly Photographer and believe that same sex marriage should be celebrated like any other marriage: openly, proudly and warmly.

It’s time to celebrate your love…!

Don’t be nervous…!

 

You’ve made the decision to get married and now you’re planning a wonderful day, but maybe you’re a bit nervous about the photography and a wee bit unsure about having a professional photographer to capture your day. Well don’t be, because it’s a special day, and as a professional photographer its my job to be there for you and take great pictures. 

One of the great things about Scotland is that same sex marriage has been happening here since 2004. I photographed my first ceremony over twelve years ago, and its been a pleasure to photograph each and every one. I offer a service that is genuinely gay and lesbian friendly, and most of all, a professional service where you can relax, be yourself and not have to worry about the photography.

Love is Love

Let’s celebrate it..!

“Love is love” as they say and if you’re in love then it deserves to be celebrated, no matter who you want to marry. Whether you are having a pink wedding, a same sex ceremony or whatever you want to call your day, to me it’s the coming together of two people who are in love, so let me help you with this journey.

It’s easy to see when two people are in love, especially at a wedding, but once the cars and cakes have all gone one of the few things left to remember your day are your pictures, any they’re going to let you remember your day for many years to come. This is why you need to choose a photographer who shares your vision.

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

Kark Lagerfeld

Values

I believe that the best wedding pictures are those that are clear and colourful, and that the best way to do business with anyone is through honesty and integrity.

Style

My aim is to photograph things as and when they happen. Some photographers have long and coomplicated words for what they do, but I just call it wedding photography.

Aims

My only aims are to capture the day in the best way that I can - through my photography and make all my couples as happy as they can be with their pictures.

Your wedding is

Unrepeatable

I have photographed hundreds of weddings over the years, many of them pink weddings, so I know where to be and what to do at any site of wedding. I also know just how nervous you are going to be, so I’m not going to get you grinning at the camera most of the day, and I certainly won’t get you to do daft things as every wedding deserves respect.

What you will get is tasteful, time-lasting and elegant photography that captures your day and all those unforgettable moments.

A few FAQ’s

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT...?

You visit my website, and if you like what you see and would like to know more then get in touch to tell me what kind of day you are having. I’ll let you know if I’m available and send you my prices. If you would like to talk further then we can talk on the phone or meet for a coffee. There’s no obligation to book me, as after we’ve spoken or met, I’ll leave it up to you to let me know if you want to take the next step.

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU...?

After we’ve spoken or met for coffee, if you would like to book me to be your photographer then once you let me know, I’ll send you an email with a link to my booking form. Its all pretty easy and doesnt take too long as I like to make things as easy as posible.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER...?

I’ve been a full time photographer for over 30 years. I’ve worked in all kinds of photography, and even managed photographers. These days I shoot commercial photography as well as wedding photography for myself, which keeps a roof over my head and my dog well fed.

ARE YOU INSURED..?

Definitely. I never leave home without it.

DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS...?

Yes. My albums are made right here in Scotland and are of the highest quality. As well as superior materials, my album pages are printed onto photographic paper which provides the best visual quality.

DO WE HAVE TO BUY AN ALBUM..?

You can include an album with your portfolio, or if you want to buy one several weeks, months or years after your wedding, I have a special shopping cart on my website where you can buy an album.

Ian did us proud when it came to the images captured of our special day. He was great fun to work with and just blended into the background, capturing the essence of the day rather than anything too staged. Yes, of course, we did the usual family photos which were posed, but Ian put everyone at their ease and the photos he took looked really natural. he also got some amazing shots of us in front of the beautiful Argyll & Bute scenery. A memorable day, made even more so with the help of Ian. We would highly recommend him.

Lee & Simon, Rosneath, Argyll

We would recommend Ian to anyone looking for a truly great photographer! We had a fairly small wedding, but we were still incredibly nervous, and it was great to have someone like Ian playing on our team. Ian really went above and beyond so that we never felt lost or confused in the hubbub after the ceremony. All of our guests noticed, and gave Ian high praise. We just got our album, and the photos are amazing! We couldn't possibly have been any happier with our experience with Ian and we would recommend him to anyone.

Rory & Scott, Glasgow

We were obviously nervous about our wedding and especially nervous about having our pictures taken, but during the day we hardly noticed Ian and when it came to the family groups he did them so quickly and cheerfully. Everyone said how professional he was and we couldnt be happier with out pictures. We had a great day but one of our best decisions was having Ian as our photographer.  Thank you so much, Ian.

Susan and Rebecca, Corinthian Club, Glasgow

When we met Ian we knew we were going to be okay as he knew exactly what we wanted and gave us lots of confidence because we had heard of so many horror stories about wedding photographers. At the wedding Ian was superb. He was there when we needed him and forthe rest of the time he wa just taking pictures. We couldnt have asked for a better photographer and a nicer guy and we couldnt believe how great the pictures were when we received them. We are so happy and would recommend anyone hetting married to book Ian for their photographer.

Yvonne & Samantha, Sloans, Glasgow
