“When we decided to book Fern Photography for our wedding we had no idea we had just struck gold!” Julie + Robert

Our first weddings were unconventional, mostly in the dark by firelight. The importance of storytelling for these couples connected with us as photographers. We felt wedding photography should be about a couple’s story and their wedding journey and not about the photographer wanting to create one epic portrait for their portfolio.

Back then storytelling wedding photography was only just emerging. We were kind of making it up as we went along. In a way that was the perfect way to do it too. We didn’t approach weddings from any traditional template so everything was possible and nothing was considered taboo.

Our photography style…

… CREATES NATURAL, COLOURFUL AND CONTEMPORARY IMAGES OF WEDDINGS. WE SPECIALISE IN USING MINIMAL DIRECTION WHICH RESULTS IN AUTHENTIC, PERSONAL WEDDING STORIES.

How we got here

A wedding portrait of a couple in Bordeaux, France

Fern photography started in 2011 with Dan and Matt’s desire to create wedding photographs for real people and real stories.

As more and more couples wanted their own wedding stories told there was a demand for their work that couldn’t be met by just Dan and Matt alone. The team began to grow.

We are now four fantastic liked-mined humans who love to photograph couple’s stories.

Four people, from different parts of the world who came together, in Edinburgh, following an urge to create wedding photographs with authenticity. 

We offer a personalised photography service with a natural approach for your wedding day. We focus on the real moments of joy taking place at your wedding. 

All our hard work paid off. In 2016 when we won the Scottish Wedding Awards Regional prize for Best Scottish Wedding Photographers for our photography and customer service and returned in 2017, 2018 and 2019 as finalists. In 2019 we were also finalists in the prestigious VOWS awards.
