Recommendations for a wedding photographer in Scotland
Unobtrusive, Unposed, Unique. Documentary wedding photography in Scotland by Simon Grosset
I can recommend cheaper photographers, but for what you are getting with Simon, it really is good value for money. For his fee, he is there all day meaning you capture your guests enjoying themselves in the evening as well as through the day. Simon is a great photographer to choose when having footage that goes on into later in the day, because having a background in photojournalism, he is superb at catching things as they happen and taking good 'unposed' natural looking photos. You will find a lot of so-called reportage photographers out there, but they aren't. They still pose you a lot and their reportage work is a bit hit and miss. The cheaper ones also don't stay as long, so you have to balance that up as well. They also look cheaper, but they make up for it in the prices they charge for prints
Photos are the lasting memory you will have of the day and is really worth investing in. Save money on the cake, cut down on the flowers, but not the photos - that would be my recommendation.
I have to say that the photos are truly fantastic - they have captured our "big day" so wonderfully. My favourites I think are the beach shots - anyone would think we chose the colours to match the sky! Everyone who has seen the photos has said how fantastic they are - we really can't thank you enough. Thank you again for everything and especially all your help on the day itself.
Thank you so much for everything, you are so much more than a photographer. I hadn't realised that wedding planner, dress assistant and psychiatrist were within your remit! Oh and the photographs are a delight, you caught my father smiling and I will treasure that image along with so many of the others.
I thought you might like to know that we've had some fantastic feedback on the images that are already online - as well as absolutely brilliant feedback about you on the day.
Everyone has been saying how well your photos have captured the essence of the day and some of the best memories of it all. There have also been a number of people who have commented that you did an amazing job of being approachable and professional all at once, and that they enjoyed you being there.
Both Sam and I would echo this 100%; I know that this is what's allowed you to really get in there and catch everything, so thank you - and I can't wait to see the rest of the photographs.
I just wanted to let you know that the photos arrived on Wednesday. Just....wow. I've said it all in my previous email, so I wont say it again. But we're just completely and utterly thrilled with them. Thank you. I'm now trying to schedule catch ups with all my friends so I can show off the little box of prints - its a smashing idea!

One or two with my amateur eye could be entered in competitions. I absolutely adore the photo of the bridge and the bow of the boat. (I love the ones of my beautiful daughter too but there is just something about that photo!)

That's brilliant, we can't wait to see them all! We've been sending your blog round to friends and family and everyone's said the photographs are amazing!
You were fabulous on the day (also amazingly calm amongst the chaos) and the photos we've seen on the website are outstanding. Everyone's favourite is the one you captured of us entering into Doune with the thunder cloud above. It's genius (and many have said award winning)!!Thanks again for everything.
Those photos are beautiful. You have really captured the essence of everyone. I knew you were the right person to choose - you don't have any photos of anyone looking anything but their best! I'm very much looking forward to seeing the rest.
We've just got round to looking through the photos you sent, and they are absolutely fantastic. We love them. There aren't any that we don't like. You've really captured the essence of the day, and everyone looks so happy. You've also managed to get pictures of so many different people, and the one of Eliot and Layna is lovely.
I just wanted to thank you very much again for all your hard work.
Thanks for the photo's, they really are lovely. We only just saw them last night, the first weekend we've been together since the wedding! Thanks very much for the day. It was really worth having someone who knew what they were doing photography wise!
Matt: The photos are GREAT and thanks for all your efforts on the day, I was sorry not to get a chance to say goodbye! It was more like having a friend or guest there than a photographer and many guests commented on your lovely manner.
Laura: THANK YOU for the lovely photos you have posted so far. We love them. Also, you were wonderful to work with and have at our wedding. Very friendly, helpful with so many things (many not photo-related); you were constantly working, picked out a lovely spot for photos – we would highly recommend you!!
From the exquisite presentation to the pictures themselves, that so perfectly captured the mood and ambiance of the day. Through you beautiful photography, each picture had us re-living the emotion of the day. Thank you.
I will post a recommendation on your Facebook page, but please feel free to use my words as a recommendation whenever you wish…
I cannot begin to tell you how completely thrilled we are with the pictures! We are so grateful for the time you have put into us. You are incredibly talented and the memories you have given us with these pictures is priceless. And a HUGE thank you as well for being our witness. I don't think we even said a proper 'thank you' to you that day, but we truly appreciated it!
My mom likened what you did to what it would look like to be in a fairy tale. You really captured something in us we didn't know could be caught! It means so much to me that she could feel that without even being there.
Simon gave us a wonderful history of our daughter Janis' wedding to Willem. Gorgeous, natural photographs that make us smile, sometimes laugh, every time we look at them. Everything we asked of him was delivered and he was with us all day until late in the evening. Exceptional service, quality photographs delivered quickly and competitive prices make him the BEST for your photography needs. Thank you SO much, Simon
The photos are great! We can't wait to see all of them! We showed them to Fumino's father yesterday (who stayed in Japan as he couldn't travel to the wedding) and he was over the moon!
We've been looking at the photos more or less everyday but it's been difficult to find the time to put this mail together, so many excellent photos and not ANY that we dislike at all!
