Fern was founded in 2011 by Matt and Dan. We found a love for wedding photography in Edinburgh and couldn’t resist making that our career. It’s taken us all over the world and continues to be an excellent adventure!

We’re now four fantastic humans who love to photograph people. Four people, from different parts of the world who came together, in Edinburgh, following an urge to create stories in images.

How we got to here, now…

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.

We are specialist wedding photographers in Edinburgh. We’ve been to over 200 weddings between us and have been working professionally as wedding photographers for +10 years.

We love big, extravagant weddings, small intimate elopements and everything in between. All of us love photographing weddings, wherever they may be, however Matt and Sinead specialise in weddings and elopements in the wilds of the Highlands & Islands and Dan & Romina are expert urban wedding photographers.

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

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-minded 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.

You can absolutely trust Fern Photography with your wedding day.
