“When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.”
― Robert Frank
Welcome to Catching the Moments Photography. If I had to describe my style in three words I would say natural, relaxed and unobtrusive. Candid moments, real emotions and reactions, tiny details you've planned for months, atmosphere, love, laughter and tears. I aim to record your wedding day as it happens, without posing or arranging anything, and most importantly without getting in your way. I believe every wedding is unique and should be treated that way. The thing is, the photos are about the day, not the other way around.
Since 2012 I'm a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), which is a professional organization composed of photojournalists and wedding photographers from around the world. Every year WPJA hosts the largest wedding photography competitions in the world judged by panels of award-winning photojournalists (including many Pulitzer Prize-winners) and news photo editors. Over the years I've won numerous awards from the WPJA.
Each year I shoot weddings all over Scotland and the rest of the UK, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fife, Perthshire, Aberdeen, the North of England and London, to name just a few. I'm also available for destination weddings.
I want to tell the true story of your wedding day, without directing or influencing the events. I won’t boss you around lining up for endless group shots. Instead, I will let you enjoy your wedding day with your friends and family. I won’t get in the way or tell you what to do. Instead, I will discreetly accompany you throughout the day. If that sounds like something you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. To find out more about my approach and how I work on the day, click here.
At Catching the Moments we care deeply about nature. We decided to do our bit by helping to restore the ancient Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands and all the wildlife it contains. For every wedding we shoot, we donate a tree to Scotland’s leading conservation volunteering charity, Tress for Life. This native tree will grow in tandem with your marriage!
