- I love taking photos. And I love weddings. Put the two together and its perfect. My images have often been remarked upon to really capture the pivotal moments of events, not just weddings. True candid shots taken far enough away for people to relax and doing what they do best - be themselves. To really really know about professional wedding photography I went on a course recommended by the BIPP and MPA, on which I got the top grade. I am very flexible with whatever package we can put together. - The amount of time, when and where. - How do you want your images presented. Everyone has USB or online, but how about a stunning presentation image on the wall as big as you like? Or a small desktop framed image for you to see everyday to remind you of those happy memories? - An online gallery, just for you. Or maybe for a few select friends? - Online shopping to a professional printers for prints and products of your choice. I can work with you to recreate images you may have seen, or I can come up with my own. We can discuss together - it is fun, trust me! I am fully insured, shooting with professional Canon equipment and indoor lighting. You might be thinking all this may be a bit daunting, but get in touch and I'll help guide you to get the best out of your day.

Location & Contact Details
What is your most memorable wedding?
A friends wedding in Oban. Everyone stayed together filling all the B&Bs in town and extending the whole event to being not just the day itself. Put that together with a stunning backdrop for a truly memorable day.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Clean, sharp, uncluttered, emotion-capturing and story-telling.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The delight my images bring to people. I get the shot people didn't know happened or something that is so spur of the moment it needed to be caught.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Think about what you want from a photographer. I have had photos taken of me where the character of the photographers have been real issues and these show in the photos. Although the photographer mayb only be there for a hat time they must be your friend and you get along.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Presents for each (and every) child guest, each different, and each exactly what they wanted!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Well, firstly we definitely meet before the day. I want to get to know you and your family through you. What photos do you want taking and when, what special things do you have planned what are your must haves from the day. To you it may sound obvious and you may say, the same as everyone else, but everyone is actually different. Just ask what each family does at Xmas to see what I mean!
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The couple together, but with expressions and eyes that really say 'I love you'
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
The people are always the stars of the show, and on a rainy day we concentrate on them. A stunning venue always helps of course, but it is just the backdrop to the main stars. I have a full studio lighting setup so we can find somewhere indoors to get formal photos, or we can use some umbrellas to brave the outside and add some atmosphere from the rain. Of course it depends how muddy it is!
Describe how you got into photography.
I have taken photos since I was 11 when my grandparents bought me a compact 110 camera. I won third place in a local show with that camera!
