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...

A one of a kind person...
Emma is a one of a kind person she is friendly and warm but also a out and out professional who brings attention to detail in everything she does, when looking for a photographer we knew exactly who we wanted and I wasn’t settling for anyone but Emma and I am so glad we got her for our wedding day. Having picked up our pictures we were blown away by the quality and quantity of them all. We can’t thank her enough for capturing our amazing day and giving us so many fantastic pictures to look back at.

Goes above and beyond to help where she can...
Emma was our photographer for our wedding in June. I can't describe how lovely she is! Goes above and beyond to help where she can from (running my bridesmaids from the hairdressers to my house) � to helping me to do up my dress! She was amazing and felt like part of the family. The photographs speak for themselves. Just amazing. 5 stars don't do her justice. Would highly recommend.

without a doubt the best photographer ...
Emma was without a doubt the best photographer we could have hoped for! Emma was with me on the morning of the big day and took great pictures as my bridal party and I were getting ready. As well as taking beautiful pictures Emma was extremely helpful with all things wedding related! She is the Mary Poppins of weddings, in her bag she had the solution to all possible problems. She helped my mum put me into my dress, she helped the boys tie their kilt shoes the right way and she even had an emergency brolly for me when it started raining during the ceremony! Emma's photos are simply stunning. Her imagination and amazing control of the camera means we are spoiled for choice with which photos to print. On the day she was great at corralling family members into photos after the ceremony and organising people so that we got all the photos we wanted. Emma is so nice and approachable and a total pro. My husband and I both agree that our wedding simply wouldn't have been the same without her! If you are planning on getting married you should check Emma's availability now because she is incredible at her job and in high demand so get in there quick! Thank you Emma for your skills on the day and for leaving us with beautiful photos that we can cherish forever

Her experience shows throughout
Myself and my husband cannot rate Emma highly enough and would undoubtedly recommend her to anybody who is looking for a wedding photographer. Not only does she make you feel welcome and at ease during the before meetings, she is amazing on the day as well. Her eye for details is spot on - even to the point of noticing a eyelash falling off from distance! Her experience shows throughout and she makes sure that everything goes smoothly on the morning which I am glad a had the opportunity to have. Thanks again Emma for the time and patience you showed on the day. It made me feel completely at ease.

Brilliant wedding day...Emma was a vital part...
We really can't recommend Emma highly enough as a wedding photographer. She was excellent in the run up, answering all of our questions and being very organised and helpful with a side of the day that Susan and I didn't know a lot about. It was on the day itself though that she really excelled. Nothing was too much trouble - even helping out with the dress - and everybody thought she was brilliant. Even when we got torrential rain Emma knew the venue so well she made sure we got some stunning photographs inside and made sure we took advantage when the rain did take a break to get some outside as well. We had a brilliant wedding day and Emma was an absolutely vital part of that. If you’re thinking of asking Emma to be your photographer please just do it...it’ll be one of the best decisions you make in your wedding planning.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

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.

What about your business are you most proud of?

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 No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

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

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

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

Describe your typical process with a couple.

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 do you recommend for a rainy day 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
