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…!

Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.…


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.


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


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.

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.


About Scotland

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 ceremony. I firmly believe that everyone has the right to be themselves which is why 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.

Your wedding

Deserves to be photographed

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 not really sure about having a professional photographer to take the pictures. Well don’t be, because this day is all about you and your partner and it deserves to be photographed.

I have photographed hundreds of 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 have you grinning like cheshire cats all day and I certainly won’t get you to do daft things because every wedding deserves respect. What you will get is tasteful, time-lasting and elegant photography that captures your day and all those unforgettable moments.

Rory & Scott

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.

Lee & Simon

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. Thank you..!
