WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND DO YOU TRAVEL?
Im based just outside Edinburgh in Queensferry.
I love driving and exploring new areas so if your wedding is further away, give me a shout and I'll give you a bespoke quote...
....it's not as expensive as you may think!
Generally beyond 90 miles its £25 plus 0.45p per mile from my home
If I need to travel further than 2 hours drive I may need overnight accommodation in a nearby B&B or Premier Inn that night (driving long distances in the dark after shooting for 9 hours isn't safe) This will be included in your final quote.
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
My style is mostly Documentary with some Fine Art images for good measure.
I adore Photographers such as Eve Arnold, Gregory Crewdson,
Vivien Maier and William Eggleston. Google their work - it's amazing.
DO YOU SHOOT ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Yes! Engagement Shoot cost £150.
This is a 1 hour on-location shoot where we can get to know each other a bit better, practicing being in front of the camera.
Images are delivered in an online private gallery.
Location is around Edinburgh and Lothians eg Beecraigs, Queensferry, Cramond...
If you would like your shoot further afield there will be a travel fee added, please ask for details.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU?
Ooooh yes please! If you hire me for my full day package, a hot meal/drink are really appreciated - it helps re-charge the brain-batteries, gives the feet (and back) a deserved rest and time to re-focus on the evenings events ahead.
Your evening photos will thank you for it!
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT TO OUR WEDDING?
Very important question.
IF, for any reason I am unable to shoot your wedding (I'd have to be really seriously ill, isolating or in hospital!) I would send one of my incredible associates.
They are super skilled and quite simply, gorgeous humans.
They would shoot for me, exactly as we planned and I would still edit the photos as usual.
I'm fully insured, Public Liability and Indemnity - certificates available on request.
ANY TIPS FOR THE DAY?
Brides - if you have bought in the matching dressing gowns for your bridesmaids to wear during the morning, try to steam them or hang them beforehand to get rid of the crease/fold marks - looks better in the photos.
Bring a lovely dress hanger for your gown - often the bridal stores give you a plastic one.
A nice wooden hanger looks best, either plain or personalised.
Gather all your detail items in a box ready for me to photograph. Items can include veil, shoes, rings, necklace, bracelets, garter, sprigs of flowers, silver penny, perfume bottle, hair accessories etc. I will photograph these gorgeous items near you so I can hand them back as soon as Im finished with them.
Grooms if you are having detail shots done with a second shooter, items can include shoes, tie, bowtie, braces, cufflinks, watch, aftershave, buttonhole etc.
Most importantly - take 10 minutes out, alone, together, away from everyone (even me!). You will need this time to relax and catch up with each other, I promise you! The day will go so fast and you will realise that you didn't even get to sit down with each other in a quiet area just to be together.
Drink, eat, dance, laugh, spin in circles, hug and have the most awesome, crazy day!
