Founder and Lead Photographer

Thank you for visiting my website and taking some time out to find out a wee bit more about me!

I’ve been taking photos since I was about 16 where I took a Higher course in Photography. The photos back then weren’t very good but I always loved creating and making things. I would often take my camera with me everywhere; nights out, get togethers, and every holiday I was on! I just wanted to document everything so I could remember those times again.

I’ve had the opportunity to photograph some amazing moments in my life. I once was backstage photographing the performers at the Rockness Music festival and got to meet Ellie Goulding, Norman Cook and Jessie Ware. I’ve worked in (nearly) every night club in Glasgow but don’t think I could go back to those late nights! Weddings felt like such a natural progression and I wish I did it sooner.

2015 was my first ever wedding and then 300 weddings later, here I am! I have been nominated two times for the Scottish Wedding Awards but the biggest moment in my career was winning the Confetti Awards 2020 for Best Photographer!

If there were a few words that best describes my work it is; rustic, cinematic, candid and natural. I think the best photos are the ones that you don’t know are happening. I don’t do all the lovey dovey stuff too often, so if you are one for the cheesy poses and formal stuff then we might not be a good fit! If you are looking for a photographer who loves to be in the background and document every important moment of the day without you having to lift a finger then I’m your guy!
