This page will give you more detailed information about how we operate as a business, but also how I approach my photography and what you can expect if you decided to commission me to photograph your wedding.
WE DON’T REALLY LIKE POSING, IS THAT OK?
Sure! I don’t like posing either. Whilst I’ll shoot some portraits with you (if you want me to, this is good to do on the pre wedding shoot), the portraits are more about photographing you the real connection between the two of you on your wedding day. I would say these are directed rather than posed. I’m not really the type of photographer who will ask you to smile at the camera. As your photographer, it’s my job to help you to look good in the photos, which can only be achieved if you relax in front of the camera and are able to be yourselves. I will help you to do this. Also, I don’t take hours for portraits as I prefer to create a few great images rather than a ton of average ones.
OUR VENUE IS QUITE DARK, IS THAT A PROBLEM?
Nope. As a Scottish Wedding Photographer in winter weddings, I’m used to dark days and dark venues. I have expertise in adding light to the scene and try to do so without spoiling the ambiance that you’ve created.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?
My style is modern and informal, quirky and creative, heart-warming, funny, and empathetic. I like to let things happen organically without interference from me during Ceremony, speeches and Dancing. I think this is the best way to achieve photographs that go a little deeper than ‘normal’ wedding photography. It’s not good enough to just be there with a camera, the people involved on a personal level is hugely important in creating important images that will be part of your family legacy.
HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHS WILL WE GET?
More than you’ll ever use! Typically you can expect between 350 and 400 photographs. For smaller weddings, there will be no less than 250 and for larger and longer weddings you could end up with way more. With a second shooter you can expect roughly 1000 images. I don’t stop shooting all day long, and my cameras can take 20 images per second. However, I’m a big advocate of quantity over quality and would much rather craft a great image in camera and with editing to form part of a story, than shoot as many images as I can.
HOW LONG BEFORE WE CAN SEE THE FINISHED PHOTOS?
When it’s busy it can be 4 -6 weeks. But for most of the year, it’s 3-4
DOES IT MATTER THAT YOU’VE NOT SHOT AT OUR VENUE BEFORE?
Absolutely not. I can only shoot what’s in front of me on the day. However, I will make a point of doing a reconnaissance mission if I’m shooting somewhere new in order to work out where the sun will be at different times of the day, etc.
ARE YOU THE REAL ANNIE MAC DJ
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM COVERAGE FOR ELOPEMENTS OR SMALL WEDDINGS?
We adore super intimate weddings & elopements! If you are having one; let us know as we do offer shorter coverage options for weddings of 30 or less people and micro weddings/elopements. Let us know what you're after & we will work with you to have the most amazing Wedding day.
DO YOU SHOT DETAILS?
We shoot those too! Everything about your wedding is uniquely you. We will capture all the little & big things. Yes, we are documentary photographers that concentrate & excel in capturing moments & emotions but weddings are more than this. We aim to give you complete coverage of everything, including details you’ve put so much effort into!
DO YOU SHOOT TRADITIONAL PHOTOS?
We sure do! Traditional family photos are heirlooms of the wedding. We will help you with a list of special folks you’d like to be included in these. We shoot formal photos of families & bridal parties each and every wedding. We create simple, relaxed, clean portraits of family & bridal party groupings; showcasing the beautiful faces you adore!
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE & BACKUP?
Yes & yes. We’ve been at this game for some time now, we’re super serious about our business. After all this is our bread & butter. We are ONLY wedding photographers. Full time, all the time!
IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE?
We travel quite a lot, due to living in Glasgow. There is no travel fee for any wedding within 50 miles from Glasgow. We will quote you a travel fee if it applies to your wedding.
Contact us. Tell us about yourselves, your wedding and if you know, what you're looking for (coverage & product wise). We'll set up a meeting for a chat to discuss your Wedding plans and ideas.
