Specialists in Scottish Wedding Photography and Videography and now open in Isle of Skye with Talisker Studio and Gifts.
I have always loved photography. When I was a young boy my Mum and Dad let me play with a box Brownie they had. It didn’t have any film in it and most people today wouldn’t know what a box brownie was. Then I purchased my own camera which was a simple rangefinder camera. Through my work in the computer industry I started visiting the Far East and was able to invest in a very posh used Nikon film camera.
I was asked to photograph a friends wedding which I hated. It was the time when everyone lined up and said ‘cheese’. Not my scene at all so I concentrated on more interesting things to photograph. Then the digital revolution came along and suddenly the whole style of wedding photography changed. It was now about storytelling, capturing the moment. The in-word is photojournalism but it was really about allowing the Couple to be natural.
And that is why we love shooting weddings so much. I say ‘we’ because I now work with my wife Ruth. Weddings have got rules and largely we know what is going to happen and when. Yet every wedding is different because we cannot preset the expressions or the outpouring of emotion. Every wedding is completely different and every couple adds something new to the day. We love being there to capture that for you. We do not like being in the way as the magic of your day unfolds. We look to capture the events as they happen.
If you are shy or uncertain in front of a camera, as many couples are, we will help with a little direction. Sometimes a slight turn of the body, a shift in the angle of the head will capture the light perfectly. We are there to make sure you have a full story recorded, to provide you with images that capture the romance and intimacy, to have an heirloom that can be passed down generations of your family and that will fill your heart with emotion every time you look at them.
Together we photograph and video weddings to ensure your first day as husband and wife is etched in your hearts as the best day of your lives.
