About me, a Ayrshire Wedding Photographer

As already mentioned, I’m based in Troon, South Ayrshire and I genuinely love my job and my clients. My passion for photography has allowed me to travel all over, working with a wide variety of clients and doing all kinds of exciting projects. I choose to live in Scotland because it's a vibrant, wonderful place to call home. As well as my personal home, my portrait photography is here also.

This makes me the ideal person to photograph clients who also live in this area.

My background is in care, art, and photography, giving me a unique lens through which I view the world and my work. I love everything about weddings: the celebration of a couple’s love, unique storytelling, a passion for discovering beauty, and seeing dream worlds come to life. Weddings are an environment where a couple’s wildest visions can become a reality as they gather family and friends together to celebrate their commitment to one another.

Additionally, I can do portraits for actor headshots, executive headshots, social media images, boudoir portraits, bridal portraits, corporate headshots, glamour photography, personal branding images, theatrical portraits, senior portraits, family portraits, and more.

Why hire a Scotland Wedding Photographer

As a Scotland wedding photographer, I have a unique eye for detail and a knack for finding beauty in ordinary moments. I have photographed countless weddings and genuinely enjoy working with couples to create their dream snapshots of their big day. Additionally, I strive to provide couples with refined, stunning images that they’ll cherish for a lifetime and show future generations.
