The Look of Love

Edinburgh Wedding Photographer
I am an Edinburgh wedding photographer working all over Scotland. I tell the story of your wedding, without you being hassled, forced to pose, or be dictated to by me. It is all about you and who you are, and not who or what I want you to be! I am unobtrusive and I want you and your guests to be themselves and not notice me. I aim for you to be relaxed about your wedding day photographs, so I can create lovely natural portraits of you and your guests, and tell the story of your day as it actually was. When you first see your photographs I want you to be amazed and surprised at what I have captured.

My approach to wedding photography is:

Relaxed: I avoid cliches and don't expect you or your guests to perform any of the 'hilarious' poses recommended by wedding photography manuals and magazines. I will not ask you to pose spread-eagled against a rose covered brick wall, or get the groom, best man and ushers to jump in the air. I will photograph you as a couple, not as two people separated by a wall, pillar or vast amounts of space. (If, however, your guests decide to pose in some weird way, I will, of course, photograph them!)

Informal: I observe rather than organise, and I don’t direct or dictate. It is your day and I do not expect you to change a thing about it to accommodate me. Of course, we will discuss the timetable and details in advance, and arrange the ‘formal’ group shots of the bride and groom with their families and the bridal party. But I like to keep these to a minimum and always try to take a group photo of everyone.

Natural: I believe that reality has its own beauty and art. I want you to be who you really are, not to conform to my idea of who you should be. My photographs are neither staged nor fussy, but they show the true story and atmosphere of your day in an honest manner. I want to capture your 'look of love.'

I am based in North Berwick, near Edinburgh, in Scotland, and am happy to work at any venue in Scotland and the UK.
