I live abroad and wouldn’t be able to meet until the wedding, is this a problem?

Absolutely not,  I shoot alot of weddings for couples who live abroad and come to Scotland to get married. All my procedures are set up online and we can do everything either via email and Skype.

How much time do you need for photos?

I’ll run over timings with you at our pre wedding meeting but as a rough guide:

  • Groom before the ceremony: 30 mins
  • Bride before the ceremony: 1 -2 hours
  • Ceremony: 30 min – 1 hour
  • Family & Group shots:  30 – 45 min (varies depending on size of your list)
  • Couple photos: 1 hour
  • Venue detail shots: 30 min
  • Reception: all depends on you…

What is the most important thing on the wedding day for you as a photographer?

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and it’s going to go by even faster than you think! Therefore, it is vital that you feel comfortable with your photographer. I would like you to relax and enjoy every moment! And know that I’ll be capturing your day for you to remember forever!

I have a very natural approach and I don’t like to be in the spotlight. It’s your day and I’ll do my best to help you enjoy it !!

What can I do, to ensure that I get the best possible photos?

The most important thing is that you enjoy the day and just be yourself!

Secondly, you can ensure good lighting. One of the most important things for a photographer, is light. The amount of light available in a room often determines the outcome of the photos. If you like natural photos then for your bridal prep images I suggest you book a spacious guest house/hotel room with lots of natural light, white walls are always preferred!

For your reception, please ensure that you don’t only have candle light, but also some other form of lighting. The more light, the better the photos your turn out. Uplighters are great for dancing shots!

Do you travel for weddings?

Of course, I shoot weddings all over Scotland and even abroad.

Are travelling costs included?

Our collections include travelling expenses up to 150 miles total from the IV2 postcode. After this travel is charged at 45 pence per mile.

Do you work with an assistant?

Yes I do, on all but small weddings, Chris my husband is my able assistant. He doesn’t shoot but drives me around, carries my bags, helps with my gear, holds my off camera flash, keeps me on time to name but a few of his skills. On the day we will be two people, so please ensure that you make dining arrangements for the both of us.

Do you use extra lighting equipment?

Whilst I love working with natural light, this is Scotland and we can’t always promise sunshine, so when needed I do use a flash.

What if it rains?

Don’t worry. I’ve plenty of experience of shooting weddings in the rain and whilst a sunny day is obviously preferable we’ll get some great photos whatever the weather.

Do you do formal table shots?

No, unfortunately I don’t take photos of the different tables. I do however take candid shot of people, listening to speeches, laughing and enjoying the evening. If you want to ensure you have photos of all your guests, I suggest you book a photo booth separately.

Do you only shoot weddings?

No, I am also available for commercial work. Please contact me for examples of relevant shoots.

What equipment do you use and do you have a back-up?

I shoot with the latest professional Nikon gear, my current camera of choice is is the D800E.

I carry backup peices of all my key equipment though am glad to say I’ve never needed to use them.

Do you take credit cards?

Unfortunately not.
