Alternative Wedding - New Born - Lifestyle Photography

A little about me

 
 

Once upon a time I studied photography at Edinburgh School of Art, back when you locked yourself in a darkened room and everything was on film. I loved the anticipation and excitement of creating something that you didn't get to see straight away.

Like many in my generation I have spent a large chunk of my life travelling - once it’s in your system it’s hard to get rid. My favourite things in the world are my humans. One’s old, two are newish and I now have a brand spanking new baby boy. Due to my lovely Kiwi other half, I spend time each year in Scotland, Australia and New Zealand.

I LOVE the ocean, surfing, outdoors, taking off on aeroplanes and landing in foreign countries. I love handmade things and the talent of creative people. I come from a very close, large family who mean everything to me. I think it’s because of this I find capturing memories and fragments of time so important.

Photographs will tell stories forever. I absolutely love what I do and hope I never have to do anything else. At the moment I live in Scotland but I shoot weddings across the UK and internationally, so please don't let location put you off contacting me about your wedding.

We also hope to move to Australia in a couple of years time. I've been lucky enough to shoot weddings in Scotland, England, Australia, Spain, France and next year I'll be adding South Africa to my list, a place I fell in love with many years ago.

I got married a few years ago now, and without a doubt it was the most incredible day our lives. I didn't want to miss a thing and wanted everything captured (which I got). Now I have all my memories to hang on my walls, put in albums and look at time and time again.

Your Wedding

During weddings I want to tell the story of your day as it plays out, in a non-obtrusive documentary style. I capture the relationships of you and those most important to you, and the emotions you were feeling on the day. The tears, the laughter, the hugs and rolling eyes, those moments that your own children will look back on and see the real you. I capture what’s there, not a staged set up version.
