“We have been successfully running for several years and last year we were delighted to have moved from our studio in Aberdeen to a super studio in the ever growing  town of Inverurie where we are busy rolling out plenty of ideas for Portraits and Boudoir. This is an incredibly exciting time for us so please get in touch  if there is anything we can do for you.”

As wedding photographers in Aberdeenshire we feel incredibly privileged to be a part of the most important day of your life, so please come and see us before making any decisions!  We are proud to employ a small selection of highly talented photographers to assist at weddings so no moment goes un-missed or un-recorded.

Our approach to weddings is an artistic one. We combine the best of directed formal groups and fine art imagery with spontaneous reportage photography. We think the most original and exciting wedding photographs are born from a fusion of classical lighting and posing with artistic and contemporary ideas. We photograph to tell the story of your wedding in images that will capture every moment of your day. Click here to see a samples of our wedding photography.

We love wedding photography and we hope the enthusiasm we feel at each and every wedding comes across in the photographs we capture. Together we will create something really beautiful for you to remember and treasure forever. Although we are based in Aberdeen where there are many lovely venues for your special day, we do travel throughout Scotland. If you are planning on having your wedding in Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire or even further a field please check my links page to see the venues we love.

Janie has a BA (Hons) Fine Art: Photographic and Electronic Media as well as LMPA and photography has always been her life. Wedding photography is a huge passion for her, although she also enjoys time in the studio where she can be really artistic and creative. Janie’s relaxed personality and talent for creating beautiful shots really makes her stand out as a wedding photographer. She has a great eye for detail, and bring a lot of joy and laughter with her to weddings.

David has been awarded his Qualified status with the Guild Of Photographers. He has a great passion for wedding photography too and combines this with  a real enthusiasm for photographing people and a  good eye for capturing those special moments. At a wedding this talent really comes to light – it is a day full of high emotions and his style  really captures the spontaneity of the day.

Here is a snippet from a recent article about him:

Rhea is a very important part of our team team. She helps in the studio with her beautiful portraits of both people and pets and she also keeps us all in line with her organisational skills. Her administrative ability is next to none and work wonders on our busy days! Her smile cheers us along every day.

Holly is a wonderful baby photographer. Her growing skill as a Newborn Baby Photographer has added enormously to our reputation – she loves specialising in this field and is gathering a super reputation. Her gentle but skilled manner is perfect for newborn babies.
