Choosing Your Photographer is a Big Decision


Okay, you’ve chosen your partner, the wedding date, the venue – and even the rings. You’ve also looked at zillions of wedding photographers so your next decision is about the photographer and who to choose? Do you choose a friend, a part-timer or someone who’s just starting out to photograph your wedding – together with the disappointment this could bring – or do you choose a full time professional with a lifetime of experience. Well….

Everyone seems to be a photographer these days, but there’s more to being a wedding photographer than having an impressive camera and a bag full of shiny lenses. As well as understanding how to use the cameras, it’s about knowing when to use the cameras, and that’s something which only comes from experience, which is the biggest asset that any photographer can possess and I bring this experience to each and every wedding. This means knowing where to be at any kind of day, and it also means that if things don’t go entirely to plan – like the venue, the weather or just ‘things’ – then I always have a plan ‘B’ to make sure the photography works. 

Wedding photography is very different to what it was twenty or even ten years ago. It’s more relaxed and spontaneous now, but the one thing that the photography of today shares with the photography of the past is the importance of your pictures because once the cars, cakes and choirs have gone, one of the few things you will have left are the pictures – as besides being a record of the day, they are going to give you that warm and fuzzy feeling about how perfect your wedding was for many years to come.

My Approach To Wedding Photography



Have you thought about the kind of photographer are you looking for…? Some photographers are very funky with their colours and posing. Some are very traditional and some  – like me – capture the day in their own way to create timeless and colourful images. My approach to weddings is about keeping things simple and not to getting in the way of the day.

The wedding day is about YOU and not the photographer, so for much of the day I photograph things as they happen, working in a quiet and candid way. The only time I really get involved is for the groups and the portraits, with the groups taken in a more traditional style and the portraits taken in a more natural and elegant way. Most of all, I like to keep the photography simple and timeless, which I think is the best way to capture any kind of wedding.



All my packages include an album and the digital files – as well as my commitment and my experience. I firmly believe that each couple should have something to hold and cherish for many years to come, so if you are looking for a photographer who turns up to photograph the key moments and gives you a USB full of pictures, then I’m afraid I’m not the right photographer for you.

So, how much does this cost, you must be asking…. Well, I offer three kinds of coverage, which are based upon on the size of the wedding with big weddings start from £1250, smaller weddings from £750 and intimate weddings from £450. If you want to know more about prices and my availability, then just get in touch using my contact form, give me a call or let’s arrange to meet over a coffee. Its a no-obligation chat, so anything that happens after that is entirely up to you.

My bespoke wedding albums are hand-made in Scotland, and are perfect for holding your wedding day memories.
