We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive at the place we started and know it for the first time.

We are professional, award-winning, wedding photographers with a passion for people and stories. Our success comes from the care and attention we put into planning for a wedding and the unrivalled personal service we offer to every couple we meet. If you are looking for authentic and lively images of your wedding taken by photographers who put you and your plans first then we’d love to hear from you.

We practise a natural wedding photography style, in our opinion they are the images that best capture the emotions of a wedding day, so that is what we offer all our clients. When we are at your wedding we don’t hide whilst taking pictures, we blend in, like a friend. We dress like guests, chat to guests and act like guests. We aim to fit right in so that we can photograph your friends and family like they were our friends and family.

Our style

Our wedding photography style creates natural, clean and contemporary images of weddings. We travel near and far to work with couples to make sure their day is documented perfectly. We specialise in using natural light and minimal direction to achieve intimate and personal images of the weddings we photograph.

Our work has featured in national magazines and the press and has attracted the attention of the wedding industry when we were nominated for the Vows awards in 2018 and awarded the Scottish Wedding Awards South East Photographer of the year 2016.

The unobtrusive, lifestyle approach we take has now expanded into maternity, newborn and family photography. We’re very excited to be photographing people during milestones in their life, and we love to capture these precious moments as souvenirs to look back on in years to come.

More about us and our wedding photography

Fern Photography is an Edinburgh wedding photography and lifestyle photography company. The owners are Matthew Dale and Daniel Rannoch. We have worked together as wedding photographers in Edinburgh since 2011, prior to that we worked as events photographers in Edinburgh and abroad. We photograph people in a natural and candid manner for our wedding photography, maternity, newborn and portrait work to present their story and the emotion when we capture the image. We’re passionate about wedding photography and we love to photograph human connections, this is why we love our job. As our business and reputation has grown we have decided to share our success with other like minded photographers. From 2016 we started working with our talented associates to help document these milestone events. For weddings we have the option of one wedding photographer or two wedding photographers to cover your day. We also offer engagement portrait sessions, anniversary sessions and bespoke album designs. We provide natural wedding photos and styled portraits of you, your family and your guests. If you are having an elopement we can cater for that too. Please get in touch if you are looking for a tailored wedding photography service, and we can create a package just for you.
