Full Description
Relaxed, romantic, natural wedding photography, from my heart to yours. I specialise in documentary wedding photography with a fine art, natural light approach. My style is warm and friendly. I like to put people at ease and, for the most part, you won't even know I'm there on your wedding day. During the times when I do step forward, to get those all-important group and bridal portraits, I like to keep things loose, have fun with you and generally make people laugh. I'm organised in advance with all the names and details noted and triple checked so that, by the time the day itself comes all we have to do is relax and enjoy. My approach is to be honest and genuine and allow the space for you to be just be yourself. It's in those natural moments with one another that the magic happens, and that's what I'm there to capture.

The BEST ever!!
Jill was probably the best decision we made for our wedding, and is the most amazing photographer! Magnus and I felt so at ease with her from the moment we met and she is the kindest person you could hope to meet. Every single photo from the wedding was perfect and Jill perfectly captured the day - we've spent many evenings looking through the photos and reliving everything! Jill was amazing on the day with us, our guests and our grandparents - her style was absolutely perfect and we couldn't recommend her enough. We love you, Jill!

The best booking for my wedding by far!
Jill was by far the best decision I made for my wedding...for me the photos were everything. Both not a huge fan of getting our photo taken however Jill made us so relaxed in both our engagement and wedding shoot! Every photo, captured how perfect our day was! She knew the best spots for our beautiful photos and we cannot thank her or recommend her enough!

The BEST!!!
Firstly, my husband and I would like to thank Jill for capturing the most stunning shots from our wedding... they are incredible!! We had a destination wedding and were really struggling to find a photographer local to the area. From the start, Jill made the entire process so simple and easy. She was proactive and gave us different options on her own travel and accommodation which was huge help for us. We loved how available she always made herself for any wee questions we may have had. On the day itself Jill made us both feel so comfortable. Getting our photos taken was a highlight of an already incredible day as we had a laugh and really enjoyed every second. Without Jill's guidance and direction it would not have been the same. We can't recommend Jill enough!! We absolutely LOVE our photos. Jordan & Kris xx

Jill produces the most beautiful photographs - you can really tell she loves what she does. From the moment I met Jill I knew she was going to be brilliant, she has a way that instantly makes you feel comfortable - even in front of the camera. From our engagement shoot to our actual wedding day she was a joy to deal with. All of our photos are stunning and really do capture the most special moments. Jills pictures are so unique , she really is extremely talented! Thanks again Jill x

Absolute artwork!!!
Thank you so much for these gorgeous photos Jill! From the start, you made us feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera and on the big day itself it was like you were one of the girls. You clearly love love and it was really special to not only see our story captured but others we care about sharing their special moments too. And there were so many photos!! It was a really lovely surprise and we enjoyed spending a few evenings admiring them. Some were dreamy and romantic but there were also some quirky ones too which we loved. Most of all, I always hate photos where I throw my head back laughing but so badly wanted to have one that captured the laughter. You are the only person who’s managed it. A magician of the camera!!! I absolutely adore them all and thank you so much for capturing the memories.

We love you Jill!
We got married this summer '17 and can honestly say choosing Jill Cherry Porter as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made when planning the wedding. Jill is a genuinely lovely, warm and friendly person who totally puts you at ease from the minute you meet her - something which is very useful if your a bit awkward in front of the camera like me and my husband! From planning our photos with her to having her with us on the day, Jill was always on hand to listen to exactly what we wanted and worked tirelessly throughout the wedding day to capture every last detail and memory without being in any way intrusive. She didn't even blink an eye when asked to include our cat Skinny in our engagement shoot - a sign of a true professional. We are absolutely delighted with our wedding pictures and so many of our friends and family have commented on just how beautiful and natural they are. The only tricky thing is choosing which ones to have on our wall!

What is your most memorable wedding?

My testimonials from former clients. They are always so warm and it feels wonderful to provide people with images and an experience that they feel so happy with!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, candid, artistic, natural, light.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Nothing other than to go with it. It's completely up to you whether you're the type of daredevil who wants to get out in it or if you'd rather stay cosy and take shelter, I can work with both. I generally do venue visits before each wedding so that I have an idea of all areas and what could work best depending on what the weather is doing. Rain can be just as romantic as sunshine though, and in fact, sometimes more so. It can create a lovely dewy romantic mist in images and having an umbrella to hand is never a bad idea. Being a wedding photographer in Scotland generally means that weather, no matter what it's doing, doesn't faze you and it's your wedding day after all, it'll be romantic no matter what. My candid, documentary style approach generally means that I'll capture it exactly as it plays out. It's always best to be flexible, go with the flow and don't sweat the stuff you can't control. Rain is at the top of that list.

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

Aaaah, there are so many. From couples who've celebrated mid-ceremony by having tequila shots with their bridal party and ended their day with fire-performers, to beautiful quaint DIY village halls and tiny cocker spaniels round our feet, I tend to get a real eclectic mix of styles and I love the fact that I do. All of my couples are memorable to me in their own ways.

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

Dogs at weddings. Every time. Dogs. Also handtied florals, beautiful use of flowers is always stunning. Mostly when couples make it their own.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Start early & allow plenty of time for YOU on the morning of your wedding. Make sure you have time and space to relax before your ceremony.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I don't really believe in this type of thing. Every couple and every wedding is unique and repeating certain types of photographs with every couple isn't in keeping with my style or approach. It really is up to the couple which images are a must for their own personal day.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Typically the process tends to pivot around us getting to know each other more than anything. The most important thing is that you're really comfortable with your wedding photographer, they're with you for a long time on your wedding day and if they feel like a friend you can trust then it makes the whole process so much easier all round. I'll begin with setting up a quick consultation call with you, to take note of all your details so that I can design a bespoke quote to suit your needs. Then there's the pre-wedding shoot, which only lasts around 15-20 mins but is amazing for helping you get used to being in front of the camera and getting a feel for my style and approach. After that I confirm all details again with you around a month before the big day and then turn up on the day itself and have a blast while you relax and enjoy. Afterwards, I keep you posted with a timeline on when to expect everything and some sneak peeks. The final elements of your package generally arrive with you from around the 10 week post-wedding mark (by this stage we're old pals, connected on Instagram and I'm regularly cooing over photos of your dog... I can't help it, they melt me completely.)
