We’re wedding photographers and we love our job!
What’s so great about it? We love people, we love celebrations and we love photography. Weddings are simply the best of all those things and being a part of the day is a real honour. We’re all about the wedding photography!
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 with your guests so that we can move around the room and photograph your friends and family like they were our friends and family.
Analogy alert! If wedding photography was a burrito then understanding people is the filling, our personalities are the wrap and all the love in the room is the hot sauce!
We’re based in Edinburgh but we travel all over Scotland. We have even photographed weddings in Europe and as far as Canada. It’s safe to say wherever you’re getting married, we’re happy to go there.
Over the years we’ve spent being wedding photographers we have experienced many different weddings and have learned to photograph each of them uniquely to the couple getting married. See our reviews on the Scottish Wedding Directory for how couples describe us
We dislike using a template approach to such personal occasions so we enter each wedding with enthusiasm, an open mind and freshly pressed kilts at the ready. Yes, we wear kilts to photograph weddings, there’s nothing better in our minds.
We take pride in our preparations. In fact, we’re so eager to photograph couples that we include a pre-wedding session as standard for all wedding packages. It is essential in building a relationship between us and prepares everyone for photography on the day. Finally, when the day arrives you’ll be relaxed to know that well prepared, easy-going, professional photographers will be with you throughout the day to capture images you’ll love for years to come.
Some more details our wedding photography
Before the wedding
Planning your wedding photography happens a few months before your wedding
About three months before your wedding we’ll arrange a visit to your wedding venue. This is an opportunity for us to get an understanding of how to approach the wedding photography and how to achieve fantastic images on the wedding day.
During the venue visit we look for ways to manage the photography, particularly in bad weather. Natural wedding photography, that is both the portraits and the fun and laughter, is all about getting to know the location and your plans, finding ways to make the most of every opportunity that comes our way. We aren’t passive photographers, hoping something will happen in front of our cameras. We get the great images by being in the right place at the right time because we planned to be there.
We always try to include a pre-wedding session for couples. This helps us all get used to working together and prevents any surprises on the wedding day. It also helps us build a picture of how we will achieve natural portraits of you both. The pre-wedding session is fun, our couples always say they enjoy the experience. The great benefit of the session is that you both will be much more relaxed on your wedding day.
Everyone who asks us to photograph their wedding wants natural, fun images but that doesn’t mean we avoid formal portraits. It’s entirely up to you. A month before the wedding we’ll ask for a list of the people and things that you wanted to be photographed on the day. We’ll work with you on this list so that it has little impact on your wedding day.
The wedding day
We’ve planned the wedding photography with you so that there’s nothing to worry about on the day
Everything we’ve done together before the wedding day will have made this bit really easy and extra fun! Just in case you’re still wondering if there’s anything else we could be doing to achieve perfection, well, there is…
Technology enhancing the service
We use discreet communication tools to keep in contact with each other on the day. This way we don’t miss any special moments or get in each other’s way. We also have an electronic checklist that synchronises with each other’s phone. We check items off the list as we complete them on the day. We also carry a paper copy, just in case!
We start the day with you around 10am and finish around 10pm. During the wedding breakfast we gather all the photos taken to that point and copy them to two hard drives. After we finish photographing in the evening we copy the rest of the images to the hard drives too. When we get back home, no matter what time it is, we add these images to our cloud service. They are now backed up in 3 locations on 5 devices. They’re very, very safe.
After the wedding
We still have a lot to do after the wedding. Natural wedding photography takes time.
The next day we will give you a set of processed photos to share with your friends and family. This is usually one or two portraits and the rest are natural wedding photos of the day. Delivering the final set of photos takes between four to six weeks. Once you have your photos we can start designing your wedding album. When you choose to have natural photography it’s a great style to show off in an album so make sure you talk to us about them when you meet us.
