Full Description
I’m not just a wedding photographer - I’m a wedding storyteller. I believe in capturing the real, genuine moments and emotions that decorate your wedding day, without the awkward posing! I’m constantly looking for ways to capture that perfect moment, rather than just the perfect photograph. Those genuine human interactions that cannot be staged or faked - the warm smiles, the kisses, the laughs, and those unique expressions - they require a photographer skilled at anticipating all of these perfect, fleeting moments and capturing them in print. When you look back on these, you don’t just see a picture of people smiling, you see warm human interaction, full of heart, genuine emotion and soul. I am pleased to provide half day and full day packages, with or without a storybook album and I offer a beautiful wooden print box with glass USB on all packages! If you don't see something that will fit your day, I would be delighted to offer a more bespoke solution.

You were simply amazing.
We literally just finished looking at them this second and we absolutely love them!!!! You captured our day perfectly and we honestly couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. We loved having you at our wedding, you were professional, friendly, knew what you were doing and helped guide us through the photos/day, always making sure we were at ease and felt comfortable. You were simply amazing. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we honestly love every single photo and you have helped to create some fantastic memories that we’ll cherish forever.

We could not recommend David highly enough...
We had David as our photographer at our Wedding in August. He was very professional, but helped keep the full process so relaxed and most of all fun! We could not recommend David highly enough, and the pictures we have seen so far have been stunning! David has a real eye for detail and we loved having him with us on our special day. Would highly recommend booking David for your wedding, he really knows how to keep everyone at ease and create the most perfect pictures.

We absolutely loved our wedding photos...
David was our wedding photographer on the 2nd of April 2018. We met with him before our wedding to discuss what we wanted from our photos and from the very first meeting we knew we had made the correct choice in photographer. David was extremely friendly and professional before and after our wedding day. We absolutely loved our wedding photos and were so impressed that despite less than perfect weather (hail, sleet, gail force winds on the Bonnie Banks) our photos were truly stunning. We would highly recommend David to anyone looking for the perfect documentary style photographs come sun, rain or snow.

We are so over the moon that we chose David...
We are so over the moon that we chose David to be our photographer for our wedding. He was able to capture moments that made me smile, laugh and cry when we saw them. I had put a lot of small touches into the wedding and David somehow managed to capture them all in our pictures all while being very sick. He was a trooper throughout the day refusing to rest and making sure he got the pictures we wanted. A lot of our guests asked for his details at the wedding because they were so impressed with the way he could be everywhere he needed to be at the right times. Great guy with a lovely manner and a joy to have as our photographer.

He was absolutely wonderful from start to finish!
David was our photographer for our wedding on the 26th of May. He was absolutely wonderful from start to finish!! He works so so hard to make sure everything you wanted and everything you didn’t know you wanted is captured. Our sneak peeks are wonderful and we can’t wait to see the rest!! I would highly recommend David to anyone!!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Storytelling, Creative, Modern, Authentic, Candid.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My couples always score me highly in both the quality of my work and the level of service I offer. I'm proud to say that following your wedding, you're more likely to be a friend than a client.

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

Focus on the 'human' element; always meet with your suppliers in person and get a feel for who they are as people before booking.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Cake and coffee is usually a great way to kick things off, with an informal, obligation-free chat to discuss your plans!

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

The confetti shot, captured as naturally as possible to reflect your first moments as husband and wife with your most special people around you.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace the rain! We live in Scotland and rain is part of our everyday lives - it doesn't matter when your wedding takes place, the risk of rain is generally quite high so it's best to rock those bridal umbrellas and embrace it for some dramatic outdoor photographs!

Describe how you got into photography.

Photography has been a passion since my childhood - I love the challenge of telling a visual story through my images and how each one is unique.
