Joyful Weddings

Relaxed, fun, remember forever weddings

Wedding photography used to be a really formal thing. Stand to attention in front of the photographer for countless family and group shots, bored out of your mind, waiting for your first drink and your first “what the hell was that but that was good!” canape. That’s not what I do!

Of course you have to do some formal photos but I really try to keep these to a minimum. My photography is relaxed, fun, I’ll do lots of silly things, I’ll get you to do a couple silly things but I want you to look back in later years and say to yourself “that was a fun day!”.

Wedding Photographer Edinburgh

Hi, I’m Chris and I’m an Edinburgh Wedding Photographer that shoots weddings in Edinburgh, Scotland and beyond. I’ve photographed hundreds of weddings and I offer a joyful wedding (see what I did there!) experience that you won’t find anywhere else and will remember forever.

I specialise in documentary wedding photography that’s fun to shoot, is seriously informal and I also do daft things at weddings (my group shots are legendary). Wedding photography should be a combination of fun and stylish and I offer both in spades. I really like couples who are up for a bit of fun but really love each other and are up for doing things that are outside the box.

Over the years I’ve been lucky to work with many awesome couples and many really special days: the kind of days that leave you smiling and laughing about for years. If you’ve got a wedding planned I would love to hear from you and work with you. I’m your person for relaxed, informal documentary style wedding photography.

So if you have a wedding planned and you like what you’ve seen and read, I’d love to be your wedding photographer.

How It works

I’m all about capturing the honest loveliness of weddings. I love relaxed, fun weddings that make for spontaneous, live-in-the-moment photography. If you’re planning on marrying your best friend surrounded by all your favourite people, then I’m in.

Have a good look around my website and if you like what you see, I look forward to hearing from you.
