You Don’t Take A Photograph, You Make It.

As said by the late, great Ansel Adams and how right he was. Whilst Matt has been a photographer for a few years now I’m really just beginning to hone my photographic skills. I’ve always been passionate about photography but it was always more of a hobby until I saw how much pleasure Matt felt, joining in with couples for their special day. That was when I decided I wanted to stop taking photos and start making them.
We are lucky in Edinburgh to have one of the most photogenic cities in the world. I love nothing more than grabbing my trusty Canon and heading out to take candid pictures, the people of Edinburgh are an interesting lot.
Working with my partner in business and life is a real pleasure and I’m so delighted that we have not only set up our photography business but we are now also running a Camera Club for the children of Edinburgh. It is a project I am genuinely excited about and can’t wait to teach them ‘You don’t take a photograph, you make it.’

Susan and Stephen, Orocco Pier, South Queensferry

Susan and Stephen’s wedding was a pleasure to shoot from start to finish. As anyone who has ever visited Orocco Pier in South Queensferry will no doubt know it’s very hard not to enjoy yourself – they chose their venue well! With sweeping views across the Firth of Forth to both the Road and Rail bridges this truly was an epic way to celebrate a very intimate occasion.

Excellent English Market

We’ve had a fantastic time in the Republic of Ireland so far. We started off in the vibrant city of Cork, enjoying the sounds and sights of places like Fred Zepplins and the English market. Whilst there Katie couldn’t resist buying a few treats – she particularly liked the chocolate lion from the aptly named ‘the chocolate shop!’

70 Years Young . . .

70 Years Young . . .

and still the most glamorous!

Just back from the Dalmahoy Marriott after shooting a 70th birthday celebration. The family were incredibly photogenic, which made our job easier no doubt! It did not take them long to warm up to the camera. We snapped some candid shots as they caught up and had a few drinks! This is a definite first for us but was a really enjoyable experience from start to finish. The family had a few ideas of photos they would like and we were happy to oblige (as well as getting a few that we wanted too.) We are very pleased with the end result and hope they are as well. We’re also shooting one of the daughter’s weddings later this year. We can’t wait to join the family in celebration once more.
