Full Description
  • I'm Kirsty, I'm a wedding photographer, and I've covered over 150 weddings throughout central Scotland over my 7-year career. It might sound a little cliche, but it truly is an honour to be a part of such an important day in the lives of two people, and their families. My clients tell me my approach is relaxed and friendly yet still professional. It is my aim that when your wedding comes around, we will know and understand each other and our expectations. In the run up to your day we agree on your desired shots and I work them in to an itinerary for your wedding. I keep the formal photographs as short and sweet as you like, so you know you won’t be posing for hours on end. Most importantly, I’m there to make sure your big day is captured forever, and have loads of fun along the way! I welcome all inquiries, please feel free to get in touch if you would like to chat about your wedding photography.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?
Wow, so many spring to mind, each wedding is unique so it's hard to pick, but I'll never forget the wedding where we had torrential rain and gale force winds raging outside a marquee wedding - everyone was a bit scared of the weather and I covered the group shots indoors, but the bride & groom were up for trying some couple shots with a difference. We were soaked, they were soaked, my face was numb from the cold wind for ages afterward, but we got amazing photographs of them embracing in a crazy storm that I've never had the chance to repeat since!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fun, informal, professional, reliable, contemporary
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm so proud to have couples trust me to capture their big day, it really is an honour and watching two people in love marry each other surrounded by family and friends is magic.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Make your day as personal as possible, and don't get too caught up in the small stuff. The best weddings are when the couple are true to themselves, and they haven't spent weeks arguing about the font for the menus!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
On the back of the place names at the wedding meal, the couple had handwritten a personal note to each guest, a nice surprise for them to discover!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After a couple get in touch, I invite them for a chat in my city-centre studio. This is an opportunity for us to learn more about each other, and to show my range of albums, and talk about their photography requirements. I give away an information pack including my contract, and a general guide with advice on how to find a suitable wedding photographer. I prefer to give impartial advice and encourage couples to go home and have a think instead of booking me on the spot - it's important that couples find a photographer they can communicate with and trust. After the contract is signed and retainer paid, the booking is complete! In the run up to the wedding I keep in touch, usually adding them on Facebook to keep up with their lives and wedding plans. Around 2 months before the wedding we have a final meeting where I come up with your schedule, and we finalise all of the details before I see you on the big day. Around 2 weeks after the wedding, I get in touch to let couples know their photographs are ready, and we arrange a champagne preview in my studio, a chance to view your photos on the big screen! Couples take the photos home, I activate the online gallery for them to share the photos with friends and family, then we turn our attention to designing the wedding album.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A photograph of you looking each other. It sounds so simple but all of the posed looking-at-the-camera shots will never convey the same personality, expressions and emotions as a photograph of you looking at each other!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A back-up plan for photographs is a good idea but I believe a good photographer can work with anything and everything. I always bring extra equipment for doing high-quality indoor photographs, so you know your photos won't suffer if we can't get outside. Don't be scared of the rain, I've taken some beautiful under-umbrella shots that we'd never have if the weather was fair.
Describe how you got into photography.
Photography was the perfect hobby for someone caught between the worlds of art and tech, and most importantly it got me away from my computer screen while studying at university. I didn’t start taking my photography hobby more seriously until I bought my first “big” camera in 2004, and begged friends and family to pose for me. After a few years of commercial and portrait work, I tentatively stepped into the wedding industry, fell in love with wedding photography, and the rest is history! 150+ weddings later, I still get an amazing rush spending such a fantastic day with two people in love, and their friends & family.
