Storytelling Photography

I am a professionally qualified master photographer based in East Lothian, only minutes away from Edinburgh. As a professional wedding photographer, I shoot throughout Scotland, the rest of the UK and Europe for destination weddings. As you may have already noticed, wedding planning can be a real challenge. Finding the perfect wedding photographer for your special day can be a daunting task. Search no more!

Style

The era of entirely posed wedding photographs is no more, and that is a great thing! The fashion is now more naturalistic, pseudo-journalistic. Personally, I think it is the bride & groom and their guests that make the wedding so special. The untold stories behind their relationships that make this event so unique and compelling. Therefore it is pointless to pose for every shot, and after all, the only interesting expressions are the genuine ones.

However, I am not a journalist; I am an Artist Photographer specialised in storytelling wedding photography and snapping at everything that moves is not the best approach in my opinion. A snappy shot may be truthful but not necessarily meaningful in the wedding narrative. Instead, I set or use the stage in which my characters (bride, groom, and guests) evolve. Staging or using the stage consists in anticipating the next candid action, using the light to inject dimension, texture, mood, energy and emotion into the scene. I tend to mostly use the ambient light and shadows to keep the scene authentic.

Expertise and stress free

My role as your professional wedding photographer is to capture your special day in compelling storytelling imagery. Since this can only be achieved if you and your loved one(s) are living the moment and not stressing about it. Hence I am here for you. While it may be your first wedding, it certainly is not mine. My expertise is at your service. I am here to assist you with your timeline and any other questions or doubts you may have to ensure your day goes smoothly and you and your loved ones can enjoy every bit of it.

The no stress experience starts with your wedding photography offer. Have you noticed the infinity of choices you have to make as you plan your perfect wedding? Between the stationary, dress, shoes, kilt vs suit and let’s not mention the headache from table planning. So I have designed three wedding photography collections. Each collection shares the same foundation:

  • A pre-wedding consultation and a photo shoot exercise (for us to discuss your vision, timeline and get a feel for being in front of my lens);
  • Full-day wedding coverage (from the bride & groom preparation to beyond the first dances until there is nothing worth capturing);
  • A private online proofing gallery where you and your loved ones can view and order prints directly;
  • A beautifully handcrafted award winner photo album (a lay-flat album made with thick pages and a hard cover).

Handcrafted Album & Add-ons

We live in a digital era, but there is undoubtedly no better experience to revisit your wedding story than through a beautifully handcrafted album. Hence I include a storybook album in all my wedding collections. My wedding albums are lay-flat which means there is no gutter in middle so you can enjoy your imagery fully spread. The pages are thick (about 2mm) providing you with a deep experience when turning each one of them. That thickness also means it will last for generations of page turner. Given the special bond between you and your wedding album, you may want to customise it with an glass like or aluminum cover and genuine leather or Harrys tweed. Once I have designed your album, I provide you with a proof copy for review. Once approved by you, I send the order to my production lab (based in Scotland). You will be happy to know that if your collection does not include a parents album, some greeting cards, prints and wall arts, those and many other options can be added along the way.
