Great to see you!
I’m so pleased you’ve found me. Pull up a chair and let’s talk weddings (or if you’re more interested in newborn, family or commercial photography, do check out the menu sections above).
But if you’re here because you recently got engaged, then congratulations! You’re in the right place to book yourself a St Andrews Wedding Photographer who’d be pleased as punch to be part of your day.
So why should you choose me? That’s the million pound question, isn’t it? Well, amidst the hundreds of wedding photographers jostling for your Instagram likes, I offer a clean, timeless style of photography that’s natural and doesn’t take itself too seriously. I adore weddings and revel in the opportunity to capture you and your spouse at your happiest. The gallery that we create together will make the very most of the celebrations as they bloom around you on your special day and serve as a fabulous keepsake that you’ll keep forever. The most important ingredient I offer in my wedding package, I think, is simple: I care. Lots.
Natural Storytelling & Adventures
I like to keep things natural. My work is what’s known as “documentary-style”, which means I won’t ever try to pose people and I’ll avoid clichés at all costs. I’ll move effortlessly through your event, mingling with your guests, capturing the vibe of the day and watching your story unfold. I find that this makes for cracking photographs.
That said, I understand that sometimes certain photos need to be ticked off the list to keep the mums happy. If we need to round up the families and do some group shots, that’s no problem. Pure documentary-style photography dispenses with any group shots at all, and can be a bit too contemporary for some. I’m flexible: if you’re happy, I’m happy.
I mostly shoot in beautiful St Andrews but I work throughout Angus, Perthshire, Aberdeenshire and Fife. I work regularly at some of Scotland’s most beautiful wedding venues like Rufflets Country House Hotel, Forbes of Kingennie, Kinkell Byre and The Old Course Hotel. I’m lucky to have places like St Salvator’s University Chapel and The Upper and Lower College Halls right on my doorstep. These are super popular with lots of my clients.
The kind of couple that usually approach me are relaxed, creative and planning something very special. I’ve shot large, lavish events and small, intimate ceremonies, so my range is pretty vast. I don’t really have a perfect client – just a couple who are wildly in love and excited to be starting their adventure together.
Heartfelt Wedding Slideshows
A truly wonderful, share your incredible wedding moments, is with a wedding slideshow. All the best bits of your day set to music. Combining some romantic songs and still images you will have this amazing lasting reminder of your day to wow you friends with. My lovingly put together slideshows will transport you back to the day and remind you of what fun all your guests were having on your wedding day. I include a slideshow with every wedding photography package. It will be ready very soon after your wedding and you can share it on social media. A copy is included on your USB drive so as you will have it forever.

Bespoke Wedding Albums
My story-telling wedding albums really are beautiful things. All your gorgeous wedding photos bound in soft leather. Handmade in Scotland with the highest quality leathers, linens and paper with the finest inks that will stand the test of time. With 25 premium leather and 9 vintage leather covers to choose from your album will be unique to you. Colours like Thistle, Raspberry and Vintage Grey with your names embossed into the thick leather cover. The best bit is that you don’t need to lift a finger. My clever album software allows me to select your images and design your album which you can then view and approve on line from the comfort of your own sofa. Together we will design the perfect album with all your favourite photos. My degree in digital graphics comes in very handy for designing albums that flow and tell a story. Choose a small but perfectly formed copy for your parents. A parent’s album makes the perfect present (that’s their Christmas sorted out)
