At the moment due to Covid restrictions meeting up in person is changing every couple of weeks but hopefully in mid April things will be looking up and if I can I will but we need to work with the guidelines or we can have a phone or Skype chat instead.
If we do meet up for a chat, you tell me what you want from your wedding day and i’ll talk through my approach and style then you can decide if I am the right person for you in your own time
I tend to travel lite when I am photographing or filming a wedding, I use small cameras to capture those moments you don’t notice on the wedding day, details that are personal to you.
Its about blending in and making people comfortable when your walking around with a camera, when people are comfortable and enjoying themselves it just makes better photos. You may have been to a wedding where basically the photographer just takes over everything, its over controlled, sometimes thats just in experience but …you never make the day about the photographer …
Occasionally I work with a second photographer if its a really big wedding or logistics requires it. Having one photographer is not a drawback I see it as your photographer being able to be more discreet.
One of the things I keep in mind during a wedding day is also to look at the wedding from the point of view of a guest, photographers or videographers standing around the Bride & Groom all day, they now become the focus of the wedding and not the couple.
Thats why I love candid photography…people watching for those little funny and emotional moments, I want folk to remember you both so I like to stand off and let things unfold and capture moments naturally so I am not in peoples space.
Most of your wedding day is shot documentary style but I do like to do some creative portraits too and also group formal photos if you want them and thats something we will discuss prior to the wedding day but I wont have you away for hours spending all your day getting photos taken , I take you away for 30 minutes and take lots of candids .
If the wedding options don’t fit to what you require on your wedding day then just let me know and I can quote a package that fits your day. I can also offer Elopements, Pre Wedding Photoshoots, shorter wedding days and a second photographer option.
All my work is processed by my own hand, I don’t contract out my wedding photos to another company to process them this will usually take between 2-3 weeks. When you commission me…..you get me, all my own work and I individually process each and every one of your wedding photos to the finished images you see in your wedding gallery. For me its all part of the process of photographing a wedding which is actually one of the things I really enjoy doing. I also tend not to go too overboard with photoshop and over colour grading , i've never really been a fan of photoshopping couples to look orange in their wedding photos !
USB Print Box
A Beautiful wooden USB presentation box containing a 16gGB usb with all your wedding photos in colour & black and white at full hi resolution with no logos. You also receive 50 6x4 prints from your wedding day.
We live in an era of digitalizing all of our photos but there is no better feeling than holding a physical copy of your photos. I offer wedding albums with the highest quality prints. Albums from 14x10 inch to duplicate smaller parent albums with a list of options and covers available. A wedding album is a great way to show your friends moments were captured during your wedding day.
pre wedding shoots
An engagement photoshoot or engagement shoot is a great way to get yourself out of planning mode and enjoy a bit of fun and get to know each other and can be added to any of the wedding options. We will chat over your wedding day too while taking candid photos. The truth is that engagement photos are a great opportunity to spend some quality time and save it. These photos can be later used on invitations or as a decoration on your wedding.
Iain, those photos are incredible! Amazing night shots, the lighting is superb. I wanted to thank you again from Paula and I as you helped make our day special. We couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. You have an incredible eye. Thank you so much for making us feel so at ease. You really made it special for us.
We were so lucky to have found Iain to photograph our wedding. On the day he was fantastic and he captured such natural shots of everyone. Everybody commented on how great he was. We can’t thank him enough for all his hard work throughout the day, I would highly recommend Iain, not only did he make our big day special he was also a great laugh and so easy to get on with

Iain came highly recommended by our friends and wow are we glad we listened to them! We are absolutely delighted with our photographs and also the experience of having Iain there on our wedding day was an absolute pleasure. We would highly, highly recommend Iain to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
Iain is a brilliant photographer! The pre wedding shoot was a good laugh and definitely helped us prepare for the wedding day. Iain was great on the day and ensured we got all the pictures we wanted! Received our photos less than two weeks after our wedding and they are amazing! Thanks Iain!!
Iain was a recommendation to me from 5 other previous brides which speaks volumes. We received our photographs within a week of the wedding day and they blew us away. Iain captured every little detail, moment and emotion of our day, his candid style is amazing and it's given us very special memories of our big day and our loved ones. He is also a genuinely lovely guy, very professional

We asked Iain to be our wedding photographer and it was one of the best decisions we made regarding our big day! We cannot put into words how relaxed and comfortable Iain made us feel – the whole experience was great fun and for most of the day you didn’t notice Iain snapping away in the background! They are stunning – thank you so much, you’ve done an amazing job of capturing the day for us! We’re over the moon – thank you for only adding to our big day!

From the first time we met he was absolutely lovely, and completely understood what we were looking for from our wedding photos. We did a pre wedding shoot a few months before which we took my stepson along too and he loved Iain also! Well we were not disappointed! So many wonderful memories of a fantastic day and we genuinely can’t recommend him enough. Thanks again Iain! Xx
