What is your most memorable wedding?
Prestonfield House in Edinburgh - just as weddings were unlocked in Sumer 2020 this micro wedding was total joy! It was a blazing sunny day, amazing couple, PEACOCKS roaming about the ceremony(whom are resident on the grounds) and a surprise gender reveal right after the main group photo which went perfectly! I still love looking at the surprise expressions on the families faces! What a joy to be a part of!

Describe your typical process with a couple.
Its'a all about communication. I treat my couples as I would my dearest friends. I keep in touch with them regularly to find out how their plans are coming along offering help in all areas, even if not photography related. I love being able to help and advise where I can.
Its all done in calls, zooms and face to face catch ups

I always have a very large white umbrella in my car just in case but if you do fancy rainy photos - bring the most awesomest wellies you can find! Let's make it a feature!
Describe how you got into photography.
I grew up with photography in the house (Dad and late Grandmother were Photographers) and returned to Uni to get my degree in my late 30s. After so many years having photography as a hobby, I turned it around into my dream job - and its now my profession! Best choice I have made!
3 years at Uni, 2 major awards won, 1 BA Degree = ZERO regrets!
