Wedding Photographer Glasgow Prices


I like to meet with couples before the wedding day, whether that's via video chat or at my Glasgow Album gallery. (At the moment, due to physical distancing measures, all meetings are via video chat)


Getting to know you both before the big day will ensure I have a good understanding of your preferences. I offer a selection of ways to have your photos delivered. Choose from the digital download, albums, or this gorgeous rose gold coloured glass box featuring a selection of fine art prints with a matching USB.

Prices & Packages


2020 has been a year like no other in the wedding industry. My heart goes out to all the couples who've had to reschedule their special day, often to more than one date, all whilst keeping up with ever changing restrictions.


I have divided my pricing into a couple of small wedding options for weddings this year and next where guests numbers are restricted and post-apocalypse rates for after things get back to normal. If you book a small, intimate wedding photography package, you're welcome to extend coverage closer to the wedding date.

Destination Weddings

I don't travel outside the UK to photograph weddings, but I do count weddings in Scottish Island locations and any location more than a 3 hour drive away from Glasgow as destination weddings.

Destination wedding photography coverage is the same rate as for local weddings, with travelling expenses and accommodation costs added on to your wedding photography package cost.

 Elopement Wedding Package

Elopement weddings typically feature the couple, an officiant and witnesses, and perhaps a handful of guests. You may want coverage of just the ceremony, or you may want to plan a multi location portrait shoot in the Scottish highlands. As this service has the potential to vary quite a bit, I can provide a bespoke quote that will reflect the photographs and experience that you'd like.

Couple Shoot

Couple shoot - Glasgow +£100

Couple shoot - Central Scotland +£100

Couple shoot - Scottish highlands +£150

My Investment


You want a photographer that's not just passionate about weddings, but someone who has invested in their business and their professional skills.


For me, that means having the best possible equipment which is regularly serviced, in addition to having sufficient backup kit, plus access to hire equipment as a further back-up.

It also means being part of a network of photographers so that should you require two photographers, I can hire someone who also specialises in weddings. Creating those partnerships with other professionals means I also have a network to call on in emergency situations.


Whilst I already have a foundation degree in photography, teaching experience and professional qualifications, I also regularly invest in further training so that I can continue to grow and develop my skills.


Your wedding files are safely backed up in both online cloud storage and on RAID hard drives, so there's no need to worry if you accidentally delete a photo. I also have full liability and indemnity insurance, in addition to investing in a secure storage facility for my equipment so that it's safe when I'm away from home.


I invest time with every couple to really get a good understanding of your day and your preferences and I'm there every step of the way for any wedding related help and advice.


We'll meet up a number of times before your wedding so you can be sure of a great experience from start to finish as well as having lots of gorgeous photos to cherish after your wedding.
