WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHYGLASGOW ARGYLL & SCOTLAND
Based in the coastal town of Helensburgh I photograph weddings in Glasgow, Argyll, Ayrshire and of course – Loch Lomond. I photograph the day as it happens, providing natural and elegant wedding photography for big, small, intimate and elopement weddings.
“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.
YOUR Wedding is
Your wedding is special and like all weddings, its special because it is unrepeatable. Once the wedding day is over and the cars, the cakes and the choirs have gone, one of the few things you will have left will be your wedding pictures – which is why its important to choose the right photographer for your day.
I’ve been a photographer long enough to know that besides being unique to you, your wedding is unrepeatable so it’s my role at a wedding to tell the story of your day through my picture taking and to make sure you can cherish and enjoy your wedding day for many years to come through my pictures.
Who do you Choose..?
You’ve chosen your partner, the wedding date, the venue – and even the rings – and 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..? It’s a big decision, but only one that you can make, but when it comes to weddings, I have a lifetime of experience and I bring this experience with me to each and every wedding.
Time Lasting Pictures
Have you thought about the kind of photographer are you looking for…? Some wedding photographers are very traditional, while some are ‘alternative’ with their posing and like to use funky colours during their editing process. What looks cool and trendy today may look dated next year and possibly ‘strange’ the following year so I prefer to work in my own way to create timeless and natural images. I do this by keeping the photography simple and editing my pictures to look natural and colourful – because I want your pictures to look just as good in 20 years time as they will do today.
My approach is to keep things simple and not get in the way of the day. I do this is by standing back and capturing the day as it unfolds, working quickly and discreetly as possible to let YOU to get on with enjoying the day, and ME to capture those natural wedding day moments. 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. For the rest of the day I just photograph things as they happen – which I think is the best way to capture any kind of wedding.
Professional & Experienced
I’ve photographed enough weddings to appreciate that each day is different, and this experience gives me the ability to think on my feet, especially when things don’t go entirely to plan. Whether it’s the weather, the cars, the venue or one of the many other things that could get in the way of the day, I’m always ready for next picture. And, being the nice guy that I am, I’ve also helped groom’s with their ties, brides with their veil’s, and even got a wee bit misty eyed with a few of the Mum’s during some of the speeches – because that’s what wedding photographers do…
We had Ian as our photographer last summer and honestly couldn't have been happier! The photos all turned out way better than we had hoped for and he put us at ease throughout our big day. He was the perfect mix between having us laughing for group shots and disappearing into the crowd for natural shots, and excellent with the kids which was such an important thing for our wedding. Thanks Ian x
