“2023” : The Year In Review

OK guys, so I’m amazingly late to the party with my 2023 round up, so let’s keep it short & sweet!

32 weddings, as quality is more important than quantity in my book, around 2000 miles travelled and roughly 65,000 pictures taken. Long days, early starts, late finishes, rain, wind, sunshine, sunsets, smoke bombs, beaches, lots of 3 course meals (thank you guys!!!), lying on the ground (not always dry ground either!), crazy dancing, one broken camera and two smashed flashguns … all par for the course in a normal year!

Here then, are my favourite shots from 2023 … some candid and some not so … all set to the fabulous music of One Republic. Run VT, as they say.

Scotland’s Top Ranked Wedding Photojournalist

If you’re on the look-out for a wedding photographer (or know someone who is), then you may just like my “ninja style” (a couple’s words, not mine) low key approach to the day! Most couples tell me they didn’t even notice me for the majority of the day and that suits me … it is your wedding day after all, not a photo-shoot!

My style is very unposed, unfussy and focuses more on documenting your day rather than directing it. Minimal group shots (or even none at all if you prefer) and short couple shoots allow you spend more of the day with the people that matter and have a total blast!

For the second year running, I’ve been recognised as Scotland’s No.1 ranked photographer with the WPJA (both photojournalism and artistic categories), UK Top 10 and World Top 50.

Not sure if this is for you? This should help you decide.

I’m mainly taking bookings now for 2025 & 2026 but do still have some limited availability for this year too … but I do now only shoot one wedding per weekend so dates can be very limited during peak times.

Would love to hear from you!
