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.
A wedding is an opportunity to celebrate life and LOVE
A wedding is a time for celebration because its the start of a journey for two people who are very much in love. Hopefully, I’ll get to share a small part of this journey with you through my photography, capturing the emotions and happiness of the day as it unfolds.
Weddings are my business and my livelihood, but more importantly, I know how important my pictures are going to be, as once the cars, cakes and choirs have gone, one of the few things you’ll have left are my pictures and for many years to come my pictures are going to hold your memories of this wonderful day.
Choosing Your Photographer is a Big Decision
You’ve decided the wedding date, chosen your wedding venue and looked at zillions of photographers, so your next decision is about who to choose as your photographer. Do you choose a friend, a part-timer or someone who’s just starting out, together with the disappointment this could bring, or do you choose a full time professional with a lifetime of experience..? As much as I’d like to say otherwise, only you can make that decision.
Everyone today seems to be a photographer in some kind of way, but there’s much 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 which comes from experience. I’ve been photographing weddings for over 20 years so I have a bucket-full of experience and know where to be and what to do at any kind of day.
Experience is the biggest asset that any photographer can have, and I bring this experience with me to each and every wedding so when 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. What really matters is that I am a safe pair of hands for your wedding day pictures.
My Approach To Wedding Photography
My approach to weddings is about watching rather than organising. I don’t like to cause a lot of fuss during the day because the wedding is about YOU, and not the photographer. My style is a mixture of documentary and traditional photography, so for much of the day I photograph things as they happen, working in a candid and unobtrusive way. The only time I get involved is for the groups and portraits, with the groups taken in a more traditional style and the portraits taken in an elegant way. I like to keep the poses simple and the pictures timeless, which I think is the best way to capture a wedding. I think many couples do, too.
Wedding photography today is so different to what it was twenty or even ten years ago. It’s much more relaxed and spontaneous now, but one thing the photography of today shares with the photography of the past is the importance of pictures. 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.
This is my approach to wedding photography.
I offer three portfolio’s, which are based upon on the size of the wedding, with each portfolio offering just a few options to fit into your day. If you want to know more, or know my availability, then just get in touch using my contact form – and don’t forget to tell me how many guests will be at your wedding.
For those big weddings, with lots of guests and lots of photography with one or two photographers from start to finish…
For those smaller wedding days, with fewer family and guests and one photographer (me) to capture your day…
For those intimate wedding days with the fewest of guests or those elopement weddings with just the two of you…
All the portfolios include the digital files, an online gallery and a HD slideshow.
Wedding albums hand-made in Scotland are also available.
One of the few things you will have left after your wedding day are the pictures, so I know they are important to you.
Visit my picture galleries as they include many of my favourite wedding pictures, and also visit my photography blog. It includes lots of wedding stories with pictures from real weddings. Hopefully these will give you a better idea of my style. If you like what you see and would like to know my availability and an idea of cost, then visit my contact page to fill out the message form. I will reply as soon as I can.
If I am available and within your budget, then lets arrange to meet over a coffee. This is where you can tell me about your wedding and I can tell you where my photography could fit into your day. Its a no-obligation chat, so what happens next is entirely up to you. If you want to go ahead with a booking, then you just let me know and I will send you my booking form. Hopefully, I’ll hear from you soon…
