Relaxed and natural wedding photography in East Lothian

I am an award winning wedding photographer based in East Lothian, and working all over Scotland and the UK. I tell the story of your wedding, without you being hassled, forced to pose, or be dictated to by me. It is all about you and who you are, and not who or what I want you to be! I am unobtrusive and I want the bride and groom, their wedding party and their guests to be themselves and not notice me. I aim for you to be relaxed about your wedding day photographs, so I can create lovely natural photographs of you and your guests, and tell the story of your day as it actually was. When you first see your photographs I want you to be amazed and surprised at what I have captured.
My approach to wedding photography is:

Natural wedding photography: I believe that reality has its own beauty and art. I want you to be who you really are, not to conform to my idea of who you should be.

Relaxed wedding photography: I observe rather than organise, and I don’t direct or dictate. It is your special day and I do not expect you or your guests to change a thing about it to accommodate me.

I avoid cliches and don't expect you or your guests to perform any of the 'hilarious' poses recommended by photography manuals and wedding magazines. I will not ask you to pose spread-eagled against a rose covered brick wall, or get the groom, best man and ushers to jump in the air. (If, however, your friends decide to pose in some weird way, I will, of course, photograph them!)

I will photograph you as a couple, not as two people separated by a wall, pillar, or vast amounts of space!

Of course, we will discuss the timetable and details in advance, and arrange the ‘formal’ group shots of the bride and groom with their families and the bridal party. But I like to keep these to a minimum and always try to take a group photo of everyone.

The video slideshow below show my natural and relaxed approach to photographing the bride and groom and other members of the wedding party. There’s music on it, so you might want to lower the volume before you hit the play button! It’s a track from my nephew Tom Grosset’s Toronto based jazz band, Snaggle.
