WHERE DO YOU WORK?
I am based in Edinburgh but I work all over Scotland and beyond. I am happy to discuss travelling further afield to shoot your wedding.
WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHS DO YOU TAKE?
My preferred style is reportage/photo-journalistic, which means I like to take candid shots where people aren't 'posing'. I find this allows people to be their most relaxed, happy and confident, and means I can capture the unforgettable moments of the day. Have a look around the website to see more of my style.
WILL YOU TAKE GROUP SHOTS?
Yes, I am happy to take a few group shots. I know these can be really important especially when you have lots of family and loved ones all in one place! We would discuss this when we meet and I’d ask for a list in advance. I usually recommend a limit of 6-7 group set ups, so that I have plenty of time to take pictures of you two and all your guests enjoying themselves.
HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT?
I ask for a deposit of 25% to secure the date. The remainder of the fee is due one week before the wedding.
ARE THE IMAGES OURS?
Absolutely! Once I have handed the pictures over to you they are yours to keep. All images are supplied copyright free, for non-commercial use only, so you are welcome to choose where you print them. I am of course happy to give you recommendations or put together an album for you.
DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING?
Yes, if at all possible. I think this is very important. At our pre-wedding shoot we can discuss your wedding and get to know each other. This makes things much easier on the day for you (and me!). It also gives us chance to take some photos together so that you are comfortable with my clicking away!
HOW MANY PICTURES WILL WE GET?
Depending on the length of your wedding, the number I supply is usually 400-600 which is plenty to tell the story of the day and enough to ensure each special moment is captured. My ethos is that wedding photography is about quality and not quantity, so you’ll receive your images in high resolution and fully edited.
WHEN CAN WE SEE OUR PICTURES?
The photographs will be ready to view within six weeks of the wedding, sometimes sooner. A sneak preview of the photos will be on the website within a week of the wedding. Once the photographs are ready, an online gallery will be available for you and your guests to view on my website.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use a pair of Canon DSLR cameras, usually a 5D mark iii and a 6D. I use a series of prime lenses, these include - 35mm 1.4L, 50mm 1.2L and 85mm 1.8.
All my equipment is backed up.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes I am fully insured. I can supply details if you wish.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR THE PRE-WEDDING SHOOT?
This is really up to you – top hat and tails or jeans and a t-shirt – as long as you are comfortable, relaxed and feel good. It's worth remembering that these pictures will capture a very special moment in your life together, but it’s important to look like you and feel at ease!
WOULD YOU LIKE A MEAL AT THE WEDDING?
That's very kind of you to ask, but, no, I don't need feeding at the wedding! When you and your guests are eating it's a chance for me to take a break, get a cup of tea and – most importantly – back up the pictures!
MAY WE JUST HAVE A PRE-WEDDING SHOOT?
Of course. Please get in touch to discuss this further.
