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….

You know, everyone seems to be a photographer these days, but to tell you the truth, there’s a bit more to being a wedding photographer than just 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. I bring this experience with me to each and every wedding, which also means knowing where to be at any kind of day, and it also 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 day is over one of the few things you will have left are the pictures – which 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. I’ve always believed that its my role at any wedding to capture the day – and that’s what I do.

My approach to weddings is to make things as easy as possible and not to get in the way of the day. I find the best way to do this is by standing back and capturing the day as it unfolds, working quickly, quietly and as discreetly as possible. This allows YOU to get on with enjoying the day, and ME to capture those natural moments and all the other moments that help to tell the story of your day.

For most of the day I photograph things as they happen, and 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 want to do is keep the photography simple, timeless and elegant – which I think is the best way to capture any kind of wedding.




I suppose the million dollar question here is about cost. All my packages include the digital files – as well as my commitment and of course – my experience. I also offer albums with my portfolio’s as part of my portfolio’s, as I firmly believe that each couple should have the opportunity to hold and cherish something tangible and unique for many years to come.

I know that all weddings are different, so I have three price lists: one for big weddings, one for smaller weddings and one for intimate weddings, so hopefully there should be something there to suit everyone. If you want to know more about prices and my availability, then just get in touch using my contact form. You could even give me a call or we could 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.
