Natural & RelaxeD Photography
For those big days with lots of guests and lots of photography
The cars, the dress and the wedding venue, but with fewer guests.
For two people in love, with just a few family and guests.
Choosing Your Photographer is a Big Decision
Okay, you’ve chosen the wedding date, the venue and the rings, and you’ve looked at zillions of photographers so your next decision is about the photographer. Do you choose a friend, a part-timer or someone who’s just starting out – together with the disappointment this could bring – to photograph your wedding, or do you choose a full time professional with a lifetime of experience.
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, its about knowing when to use the cameras, and that’s something that only comes from experience.
Experience is the biggest asset that any photographer has, and I bring it to each and every wedding. This means knowing where to be on 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 different to what it was twenty or even ten years ago. It’s much more relaxed and spontaneous now, but the one thing 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 after your wedding day are the pictures, and 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
What you need to work out is if I’m the right photographer for you. Some photographers are very funky with their colours, some are very traditional with their posing and some very untraditional. Some – like me – capture the day in their own way to create timeless images.
My approach to weddings is simple: it’s about watching rather than organising, and not to cause a lot of fuss. 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 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 the pictures timeless, which I think is the best way to capture any kind of wedding and I think many couples do, too.
ALL MY PORTFOLIO'S INCLUDE AN ALBUM
All my packages include an album – as well as my commitment, my experience and the digital files. 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.
I offer three portfolio’s, which are based upon on the size of the wedding. With big weddings starting from around £1295, smaller weddings from around £695 and intimate weddings from around £450, if you want to know more about prices, what and my availability, then just get in touch using my contact form – and don’t forget to tell me what kind of day you are having.
If you want to talk about more about your day, then let’s arrange to meet over a coffee. Its a no-obligation chat, so anything that happens after that is entirely up to you. Hopefully, I’ll hear from you soon…
My bespoke wedding albums are hand-made in Scotland, and are perfect for holding your wedding day memories.
