Full Description
I understand what goes into the planning of a wedding, and how much the day means to you so I make sure I capture every last detail. Your day means a lot to me as well, and I will do everything I can to make sure you have the time of your life. My reportage style of photography combined with my relaxed friendly manner means I capture all aspects of the day without you having to worry about ‘posing’ for too many photographs, leaving you with special memories to treasure forever. I understand also that not all family dynamics are the same so by talking this through with you before the day, I make sure there are no 'awkward moments' and everything runs smoothly. I provide a good mixture of colour and black and white photos, all fully edited and enhanced to give you wonderful images that you will want to share with everyone. And I encourage you to share your photos -that is why I don't put any copyright restrictions to them....you're free to print and share as you wish, after all, they are YOUR photographs. It gives me great pleasure to see everyone enjoying my art! You get your images on disc, USB and online gallery so I try and cover all methods of sharing for you. As well as creating beautiful images of the day, my service includes so much more. I have mastered the art of fastening dresses and putting veils in, attaching button holes and tying kilt shoes laces! I come with my 'Mary Poppins' bag of tricks to help out in any situation and also help out as your personal assistant on the day. Nothing is too much trouble. And for every wedding I edit a 'sneaky peek' for you while you are eating your meal so you can see them before your evening guests arrive. Pop over to my Facebook page - Emma Gray Photography to read the amazing reviews from my couples ( proud that I have only ever had 5 star reviews from my customers and over 250 reviews). You can also see the sneaky peek albums from each wedding VOWS Nominee 2014, 2016, 2017 and winner 2015...

Her love of photography is clear...
For anyone considering Emma as their wedding photographer, you are making the best decision of your wedding! She is simply incredible. The quality of her photos is outstanding - talented is an understatement. Emma understands how important photos are in creating memories that will last a lifetime. Her love of photography is so clear and we can’t thank her enough. If we could give 500 stars we would, but here are 5 reasons for each of the 5 star in this review… 1, Emma is so friendly, putting everyone at ease whilst understanding difficult family dynamics which we were worried about beforehand. 2, Emma taught 5 Scottish boys how to tie their kilt shoe laces! 3, Emma gave us an amazing ‘sneaky peak’ on the day, then kept us up-to-date until we received the full set. 4, The quality of the DVD (and blue-ray) was superb. All our family are amazed at the quality and standard of our photos. The photos capture the mood perfectly and everyone who has seen the photos so far wants a copy. 5, Emma goes the extra mile! Whether it was photoshopping mud off the jetty, straightening a squint pole, adding an extra brother to a family photo or making me look a little less ginger, Emma does as much as she can to make every photo look perfect. Thank you Emma, Love Chris & Ayleigh xx

She is a true artist
My gorgeous new hubby, Toby Humphreys, and I would like to say a huge thanks to Emma Gray for capturing our wedding day. We felt so lucky to secure Emma as our photographer knowing how highly sought after she is. She should have the nickname Mary Poppins because she came fully prepared (mints, wipes, fans etc.) She had plenty of suggestions for great photo opportunities. She is a true artist with a special gift. Emma you are a star. Lisa Humphreys Xoxox

What is your most memorable wedding?

Don't worry about 'tradition' or 'how it should be done' ...do it YOUR way. Besides the legalities of having an authorised person marry you, signing the documents and having two witnesses, you can pretty much write the rules yourself. You only aim to do this the once, so make it right for you

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

At one wedding, the couple had written a personal note to every single guest on each of their name cards, telling them how special they are to them, memories they had shared etc. It was such a lovely moment when you could see a wave of people realising the message was there...there were tears, there was laughter....it was just amazing

What about your business are you most proud of?

I initial like to respond to their email or message in a friendly way and if I still have their date available, I invite them down to my studio for a cuppa and a chat, and I show them a full wedding so they can get an idea of my style every step of the day. If their date is not available, I ask among my photographer friends if anyone does have the date free and go back to the couple with recommendations...I hate feeling like I can't help in any way. Then once they have booked I let them know I am always here to help with ideas or recommendations for anything, but the next official meet up is the week before the wedding where I go over details like timings, family members etc. On the day I go and join them at 10:30 in the morning and stay right up until the third dance. I help out throughout the day with all sorts of things and basically act like the bride's personal assistant, doing any running about needed as well as taking great photos. While the couple are eating their meal, I edit a sneaky peek of photos for them to see before their evening guests arrive and then when I go home I upload these to social media so my couple can share them the next day. When the photos are finished I invite them back to the studio to watch them on the DVD slideshow and then when they are happy with everything, that is when I take final payment.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

I'm mosts proud that all of my customers give me a 5 star review and when I ask is there anything I could have done differently either before, during or after their wedding, the answer has always been no. Happy customers = happy Em x

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Get creative with textures and mirrors etc inside, but also remember, you only get one day at this, so towards the end of the day, grab a brolly and head outside. Your dress may get a little wet at the bottom, but you bought it to wear this day and this day only, so make some memories in it x

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Probably Thomas & Tracey's 50's themed wedding at Art in Glasgow. We got to ride around Glasgow in an old style cadillac which was great for photos.
