FAQ
Large Weddings
Elopements
Do you do formal and group shots ?

Yes absolutely. Weddings are pretty unique – all your friends and family are together in one place for the day. How often does that happen! I believe that family formal and group images are important but I also believe that they should be photographed with minimum fuss and as swiftly as possible to allow you and your guests to enjoy the day. I usually recommend up to 10 family group shots which takes approximately 15-20 minutes.

How far do you travel?

I am based in the Highlands of Scotland but I photograph weddings throughout Scotland without extra charges. Wedding photography outwith Scotland will incur travelling charges at cost. These costs are often less than you might assume so please just contact for details.

How do we book ?

You can call or e mail me at anytime to check for availability on your wedding day. To secure me as your wedding photographer, I simply need a signed contract and a non refundable deposit of £250 to secure your wedding date. Dates cannot be held provisionally without a form or fee. The balance is due one month before your wedding date.

What happens after the wedding ?

I will edit and enhance your wedding photographs to a high standard and they will be presented in an online gallery for you to see. Images are generally ready between 2 and 4 weeks after your wedding.

Do you supply wedding albums?

Yes, albums are optional extras and can be added in as part of your package or supplied after your wedding if you want to have time to think it over. Albums are an optional extra so you do not have to purchase them if you are happy with the digital files.

How long are you present at the wedding?

I begin the day an hour and a half before the wedding ceremony if you have booked bridal preparation shots. I have two coverage levels. The first is a shorter option and with this I will stay with you until you sit down for your meal. I will also photograph the speeches in this package as long as the speeches are before the meal is served. The second coverage option is where I am with you until the first dance. This does not mean that I finish immediately after the first dance. I will stay and photograph around 4 or 5 dances after the first dance. From experience this is enough dancing coverage to give you plenty of variety in dance shot

Do you shoot alone?

Yes, I generally photograph weddings by myself and have done so for over 14 years. With larger weddings it is sometimes beneficial to have a second shooter and I can call on an experienced shooter if required.

Who can marry us in Scotland?

You can be married by registrars ( contact the local registry office ) or a humanist celebrant ( Humanist Society Scotland )

How do we get to the islands?

You can fly into Inverness airport and hire a car from there. You will need a car to get around the Highlands and to see the best places. You can just drive over to the Isle of Skye.
You can get over to the islands using Calmac ferries from various departure points including Ullapool, Uig ( Skye ) and Oban. I can help you plan as I have lengthy experience on these ferries!

Can we bring our dog

I adore dogs - or any animals for that matter so the more the merrier!

Do you have additional advice for us on our day?

- You will probably be walking on sand or it might be muddy underfoot. Either bring a change of shoes or a pair of wellies or walking shoes for the shoot so we can access the locations easily.
- Bring an umbrella you like! Even if its slightly drizzly its ok to be out for photos. Some of the best photos are taken in the rain and capture the scenery and atmosphere well.
- Relax and enjoy your day in some of the most beautiful and breath taking scenery you can imagine

Can you help us find other vendors?

Yes, I have a list of other suppliers who I have worked with over the years and can pass this on to you.

Can you recommend places to go for photographs?

Yes, absolutely. I know all the surroundings and locations that are stunning in the highland and islands so can help you plan the days shoot.
