every image has come out beautifully
The quality of her work is only overshadowed by how lovely she is. We have laughed ourselves silly every single time and despite us being fairly awkward in front of a camera at times every image has come out beautifully. Highly recommend booking Emma for any celebration you want documented in life 💕 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (6 if I could!)

friendly and unassuming approach put us at ease
Emma recently photographed our wedding and was superb through the whole process, from booking through covid-related uncertainties to being a total pro on the day. We wanted a few relaxed, down to earth photos to remember our day and Emma certainly delivered. Despite neither of us being particularly keen to have our photos taken, Emma's friendly and unassuming approach put us at ease and she took beautiful photographs. Emma captured lots of candid details that we'll want to remember as well some really special moments - our only concern now is which to get printed! If you're looking for relaxed, outdoorsy, down to earth photos, we would highly recommend Emma Donaldson Photography and we wouldn't hesitate to work with her again in the future. Thank you Emma!

everything was stress free and relaxing
Emma was amazing from start to finish. We originally were booked to marry in 2020, like lots of couples we had to re-arrange due to covid. Emma was understanding and we managed to get a date that suited for all. Emma was great throughout our day, she wasn't pushy or fussed over the little details. We wanted nice/natural photos that captured us perfectly. We had a laugh which you can see in our photos and everything was stress free and relaxing. I would highly recommend Emma for any event you want to have captured in photos. She is such a nice, down to earth person.

a wonderful and talented photographer
Emma is a wonderful and talented photographer! We consider ourselves incredibly fortune to have her capture us, the sentiment of our wedding and our guests perfectly. Emma is instantly likeable and made the 'couple shots' a fun and treasured part of the day.

honestly cannot recommend Emma enough!
I cannot find the words to express just how amazing Emma is! Our photographs from our Elopement to Glencoe are absolutely stunning!!! We had a change plans and location for our big day and Emma was more than accommodating, down to a last minute request on the day for a location. Everything from first communications down to the delivery of our prints and wooden USB box was great, I honestly cannot recommend Emma enough!

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

My favourite weddings are where the couples add their own personal touches to the day, showing their heritage or creativity. I love it when unique and non-traditional aspects are added, such as handmade items, home baked cakes or pets attending as guests.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, chilled, genuine, candid, gentle fun.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the relationships I have with my couples, some even becoming friends!

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

Don't stress the little things, everything will run smoothly on the day, and if it doesn't, who cares! Roll with it and have fun.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

My favourite personal touches have been when couples make their own bouquets out of flowers from their garden,or centre pieces out of foliage and other things found in nature, there was even one couple who spent days folding different coloured origami cranes for good luck. Anything that is handmade makes my heart all warm!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After finding out your date is available I will send over a wedding welcome guide which has more information. We can then arrange a chat either on Zoom or face-to-face in Glasgow City Centre. If you're happy to go ahead, I'll send over some short forms and get your date in the diary. If you've booked an engagement session we will do that about a month or two before your wedding. This is a great way to get used to the having your photo taken and also to get to know each other a bit better. If you wanted you could also use these photos as a guestbook for your wedding. Then about a week before the wedding day, we will have one more final chat to go over any details which may have changed and just have a catch up On your wedding day I will arrive early to get set up, then the day just unfolds itself, where I will capture it as it is. After I'm finished for the day, I'll say my goodbyes then head home to back up all your photos. It takes roughly 6 weeks to edit and upload your images to your personal online gallery. Where you will be able to share with friends and family and order any products you like.

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

Sunset shots in the evening can look beautiful, depending on the time of year, this can be done after dinner if you would like to pop back out for 10 minutes.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I don't usually get requests from couples as everyone is so chilled out and are just looking for their day to be covered authentically

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Wellies, boots and umbrellas! Embrace the Scottish weather and don't worry about getting your dress or hair wet, these photos can look epic!

Describe how you got into photography.

I started out as a family photographer then branched out from there
