As your photographer I will dedicate my full attention to ensuring that the photography side of your wedding day runs to schedule and is stress free and enjoyable. Your images are of paramount importance to me and I will use every part of my skillset to ensure you have a perfect visual memory of your day. My prices start at £1200 for a full day wedding and £320 for shorter wedding coverage (2-3 hours) on a weekday. No two weddings are the same and I fully realise that different couples look for different things from their photographer. Send me an email to find out more details about the service and products on offer. I'm also up for coffee and cake if you want to meet in person for a chat :)

What is your most memorable wedding?
They've all been amazing! But Colan and Michelle's wedding near Santiago de Compostella in Northern Spain is certainly incredibly memorable as it was my first wedding outside the UK and teh scenery, light, weather, food was all so different. Loved it :)
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
modern, fresh, relaxed, natural, reportage
What about your business are you most proud of?
All the weddings I've photographed have always sent me positive feedback on the day or afterwards. It's an incredible feeling when someone sees their images and tells me how much they love them.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Pick a venue with excellent natural light :)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I photographed the wedding of two friends recently and Emma, the bride, walked down the aisle with her father AND her mother. I'd never seen that before and while it seems like a simple concept it was very moving to see.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Holding hands and having a smooch! :)
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Heather and Abe last year wanted a Vanity Fair style photograph of all the bridesmaids and groomsmen in one of the grand rooms at Solsgirth House. One with everyone in white aviator sunglasses and one without. We had ten minutes to do it and managed to pull it off (see my images for the one without sunglasses). Absolutely crackers but great fun to shoot! And I think the picture turned out really well :)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Not to get too upset or down about it. It happens here in Scotland and a good photographer will work with you and your venue to get great shots inside. And why not make the most of the rain and get some dramatic shots with umbrellas?
Describe how you got into photography.
My father and grandad were both keen photographers so there were always film cameras lying around to experiment with. In my late teens I decided to give it a shot as a career so went to study at the then 'Glasgow College of Building and Printing'. I was then lucky enough to work in the National Trust for Scotland's photographic department for 8 years or so where I fine-tuned my craft and now find myself chasing the full-time self-employed dream!
