Full Description
Thanks for taking the time to view my profile. So what can I help you with? 1. Helping to keep things calm. I can promise I will give you my all to ensure your day is relaxed and enjoyable as possible. Whether you are choosing to have a small intimate wedding or a lavish no expense spared wedding. I can easily cater and have experience of both as well as everything in between. 2. Help you be prepared before your wedding by giving every couple a complimentary pre-wedding consultation & photoshoot so that we get know each other away from the rush of your big day. We cover posing as a couple and individually so you know what to expect on the day. 3. I will do extensive research into your venue(s) visiting in person if possible, even if I have been there before. 4. On your wedding day I will turn up early extremely smart with no jeans. or scruffy clothes. 5. Be prepared should an issue occur with professional equipment and backups of equipment. To ensure I never miss the action from your once in a lifetime day. If things go wrong with my years of experience, I will be there to help you stay calm and relaxed. 6. Being flexible. Do you want to stay a little longer just ask (would likely incur an extra charge) I don't have set photography packages but prefer to give all of the couples I work with a photography offering as unique as the rest of their day. "When the day has passed, the flowers have wilted, the cake has been eaten and the party has ended. The most important thing for me is that I deliver you beautiful photographs that not only help you relive your special day but also to let you see all the things you missed. Sharing those moments with your family and friends for generations to come. " After 20 years married I still love looking at my wedding albums with my wife and especially now with my 2 daughters. I want to ensure I can give you those same family memories.

Extremely professional, putting everyone at ease
Alan went above and beyond on our wedding day, I would recommend him without hesitation. Extremely professional, putting everyone at ease, allowing them to relax and enjoy the day. Following the big day, Alan kept in constant communication for the final edits on the pictures and we couldn't be happier with the final result.

We are absolutely blown away with Alan’s work.
We are absolutely blown away with Alan’s photography. We booked Alan for our wedding after a recommendation and we have not been disappointed. He listened to what we wanted and blew it out the water. Professional, friendly and approachable Alan ensured everything was just right. Having worked in the hospitality industry I have come across a lot of photographers and without a doubt, Alan is one of Ayrshire’s finest. He has captured our whole day without interruption to any of us with exquisite shots. The colour and composition are on point. From the bottom of my heart thank you, Alan, you are a legend xx

FAQ
(5)

What is your most memorable wedding?

The 1st wedding I ever covered on my own. I had been a 2nd shooter for a number of weddings. Before I considered myself professional enough to go it alone. I was an absolute bag of nerves. But the couple were absolutely fantastic. They took my advice to just enjoy their day and not worry what was going to happen was going to happen. We all had a fantastic day.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being able to make people smile, laugh and cry. I once took pictures of a girl who was being bullied for not being beautiful enough. I got her into my studio setup and gave her my full portrait package with and without hair & makeup. To help her see she was a swan and most definitely NOT an ugly duckling with or without makeup. That for me is the power of great photographs. I will always remember that.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always meet all of your suppliers in person. People can put on a front on a phone call or email. I have had some couples who have had their day spoiled by a supplier they couldn't work with on the day. It's why my pre-wedding photoshoot is so important to me. I want couples to meet me and see how I work. We have to get on so that we can get the best shots on their wedding day.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Outwith the must-have first reveal photos. I think every couple should take at least 1 group shot with all of their guests. I have had a few couples say to me. I absolutely don't want group photos. For me to meet them a year later and say they wished they got photos of everyone. Its a balancing act of not taking to many and that is exactly what I am there to help with.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

To get photos in the rain some of the most dramatic shots are taken in the rain. I always carry 2 umbrellas just in case.
