Beautiful Wedding Photography To Treasure


Some of my favourite images that I have taken as a wedding photographer have been taken at weddings in Stranraer and I always love to photograph weddings in this fantastic area in South West Scotland. I live locally, so I know the area very well including all of the beauty spots and scenic areas. Stranraer is located in Dumfries and Galloway on the shores of Loch Ryan. Stranraer is Dumfries and Galloways second largest town yet only has a population of around thirteen thousand people. Stranraer sits at the start of the Rhins of Galloway peninsula which stretches for more than 25 miles. There are many small harbours, villages and towns here which include Portpatrick, Port Logan, Drummore, Castle Kennedy, Leswalt and Kirkcolm. At the southernmost tip of the Rhins is the Mull of Galloway the most southerly point in Scotland, you can even get married here. In Scotland, you can get married wherever you like and there are many fantastic wedding options here including historic castles to period hotels, sandy beaches to ornamental gardens, stone chapels and golf courses.

My Wedding Photography Style

Did you know that each wedding photographer has a style, the way that they see a photo opportunity, the way that they use light and shadow, and the way that they frame a composition? No two photographers will take the same photograph. Each photographer also has a style to their editing and processing and all of this combined adds up to the finished images that you see. As for me, my style is light and airy, modern and elegant. But as every photographer is different it is important that you get to see a wide selection of their work in order for you to be able to decide whether theirs is a style that you like. You can read more on the blog article that I wrote on choosing the right photographer for your wedding.
