I do header

You have probably reached this part of my website as you are looking for a Wedding Photographer in or around the Glasgow area. ( I do go further afield too)

 Hopefully at this stage, you may be  considering if I am the right wedding photographer for you.

 As a photographer (and a normal human being) , I understand that each couple needs to find a photographer that suits their own needs and the style in what you are looking for.  Although I am a Wedding Photographer in Lanarkshire, I am happy to travel further a field.

Like many newly engaged couples, you have probably never booked a wedding photographer before and not sure where to start. Well, you have made a step in the right direction but reaching this page. Well Done!

Please have a look below, with everything about my own photography, as well as helpful things to think about when choosing your photographer.

Memories
M&M Wedding 19.11.16112016

As a wedding photographer my clients can be  young couples, old couples, same sex couples, couples who have been married before and couple who it’s their first time, couples who don’t want a fuss, couples who want to be the centre of attention. The size of your wedding is not an issue either, I am happy to photograph anything from small intimate weddings of a couple of people to weddings with hundreds of guests. I will cover weddings in registry office, places of worship, castles, hotels, outdoor and many more. Location’s are never an issue either.

Although I am based in  Lanarkshire, I cover Glasgow and wider Central Scotland.  However,  I will never say no to a location as long as it’s available in the diary.  Overall, I just love photographing weddings

My Photography Style

Many people have said the one thing that stands out from my work is that I am extremely creative. I will always ensure to capture what you the client want as well, but I also enjoy bringing my creative flare to the table. Overall my wedding photography style is a combination of Reportage (documentary/candid) creativity and contemporary. When clients request, I can include fun and quirky images of the couple and their bridal party on the day.

On The Day

You may have a clear mind set in everything you are looking for with your wedding photographs. On the other hand you may be reading this and thinking to yourself that you have no idea what you want or what can be done by a wedding photographer. Either way, I like to customise packages to suit my client needs. I know each couple that contacts me is unique and this is why I want to customise the perfect package for you.

What I would suggest is to have a chat with your partner to see what parts you feel are important that you want captured. You may feel it is only the main parts of the day or you may want every moment captured. No answer is the wrong answer, remember, it’s what you both want.

Parts of the day to think about:-

Bridal Preperation

Groom Preparation

Arrivals

Ceremony

Family and

Guest Photographs

Romantic Couple Photo's

Cake Cutting

Speaches

First Dance

More Questions?

Here are some popular questions I am asked.

Unlike some larger photography businesses, it will be myself, Zaria, who will be taking your photographs on your special day. I may have an assistant with me depending on the size of the wedding. However I will always be your main photographer.

I do!

I want each album to be as unique as the couple I photograph. I take time to design each page, and will show you a preview before it goes to print. The printer’s also take care and time to hand bind the album.

The chances are, especially living in Scotland, that there will be a high possibility of rain, but DON’T worry!!

I always find that on a wedding day, that if it rains in the morning, their will be a break in the rain later on in the day. I will optimise the break in the rain, for the most important photo’s of the day.

Also, prior to your wedding,  I always check out the venue and look for both indoor and outdoor photo opportunities. To ensure that the weather does not compromise your photographs. For the couples who do no’t mind getting their hair wet, rain can also make for beautiful images too!

A wedding photographer is one of the biggest part’s when organising your wedding. It is important to work out as a couple what kind of style you are looking for. Secondly, work out your budget, wedding photographers can vary from a a few hundred pounds, to a few thousand. Finally, I would suggest looking at their experience and are they happy to meet you. Make sure they have insurance and contracts in place as well.

Yes, I am always happy to answer as many questions that you have, to ensure I am the right photographer for you. Please see below, in ways to contact me.

When photographing, I feel it is important for quality over quantity. I would rather you have 100 amazing and different photographs than 1000 of the exact same thing. Don’t worry though, you will still receive plenty of photographs of your special day!

I have been doing photography since about the age of 5.  In 2012, I started photographing events for friends. This was also the same year,  I photographed my first wedding. By 2014, I gave up working full time in the call centre, to study photography full time to better my craft. I started at New College Lanarkshire and then Progressed to Edinburgh Napier University.

Client’s book weddings from years in advance to last minute Clients can book wedding’s years in advance. A  Wedding Photographer is an important part of your special day, it’s always important to find the one that suits your needs, once you have found the right one, book as early as you can to avoid disappointment.

Once your images and album are ready, I will hand deliver the products where possible to you.

Of course!!
Love doesn’t judge who it picks and neither do I!

Most of my photography packages include a complimentary engagement shoot. The reason I include the engagement shoot, is to allow the couple to feel comfortable in front of the camera. I can see what poses work well for you both and have some informal fun. The images are also a great keep sake for years to come. For more information check out my blog on Pre-Wedding Photoshoots 

Yes!

I have a wide range of products available and always willing to meet my client’s needs. If you do not see the product available, but have something in mind, please ask and I will always endeavour to do the best I can to create the item for you.

Each couple who book a premium package, will receive a private online gallery which they can share with friends and family. This gallery also has a feature for them to be able to purchase prints from the wedding.
