Wedding photographer Scotland – breathtaking traditional and photojournalist photography

We know just how important your wedding photos are: they’re a permanent memento, a snap-shot of time, from your special day.  And, because they’re so special to you it’s absolutely essential that you choose the right wedding photographer Scotland, someone whose style you feel a connection with and who you can trust to capture everything that you were hoping for.

Why choose White Tree Wedding Photography?

As an wedding photographer Edinburgh I’m often asked this question, and I understand why. My answer is simple, and always the same: I’m really good at what I do. I’m flexible in the way I work, often moving between traditional and photojournalist style shots to capture intimate moments as well as big scenes of celebration; I love working with couples and being a part of their special day; and getting my couples the best possible shots that fully meet their hopes and expectations is my number one priority. Take a look at testimonials from my some of the couples I have worked with.

Our wedding photography style

Here’s everything you need to know about how I shoot the stunning photos you can see in my portfolio. I take my photographs using digital, not old-school film, mostly because the image quality is exceptional and it gives you lots of options in post-production. I shoot in colour to capture all the vibrancy and drama of your wedding day – but because I work on digital I can transform colour into black and white if we think it’ll work well.

My style is best described as hybrid, as I like to move between traditional and photojournalist styles. This gives me maximum potential to capture spectacular shots, whether that is of your whole wedding party or of the happy couple secretly stealing a newly-wed kiss, blissfully unaware that I’ve caught their romantic moment on camera. And, when you’ve asked me to photograph the bride and bridal party getting ready I can create elegant, feminine fine art style portraits.

It’s about what you like

I ask all my couples to talk to me about what they like in my portfolio; as soon as we begin to explore the style of photos you are naturally drawn to the easier it is for us to develop an understanding of what will best suit you and your big day. My ethos is simple: if you like traditional shots of cutting the cake and big family portraits, then I’ll capture that in a beautiful way. Or, if you love the less formal reportage, photojournalist style images that reflect those special, more intimate moments, then those are the shots I can focus on.And if you love both styles, I’ll create a perfectly balanced mix, just for you.

Simple, timeless, and romantic

Whenever possible I work with natural surroundings and natural light to get a warm, slightly softer photo with a really authentic look. I explore your venue and the areas close by to make the most of natural backgrounds. For example, I have photographed at South Queensferry beach next to Orocco Pier, Forth Rail Bridge, or along attractive old stone walls in Edinburgh close to the Lothian Chambers Registry Office: interesting settings that don’t distract from the happy couple but that give context through time and place.

Wedding photographs with bad weather or a dark venue

Fear not, you will still get the most beautiful wedding photos! I am highly experienced in working in challenging lighting conditions, including dimly lit venues and during periods of bad weather that bring atmospheric dark clouds. I have photographed happy couples in naturally dark venues such as St Mary’s Cathedral or the Caves in Edinburgh with great results, and I have braved dark clouds, thunder and heavy rain to capture spectacular shots in open spaces.  There’s very little I can’t achieve with my professional lighting equipment, even at night.

Before your wedding day

In the run up to your wedding day consider booking an engagement photography session – it’s a great way to capture the excitement and romance of your engagement, practice relaxing in front of the camera, and gives you an opportunity to discuss and experiment with the style you’d like to achieve through on the big day.

After your wedding day

I’ll go away to work on creating a show-stopper of a wedding album for you; something truly beautiful that will keep your memories safe for a lifetime.


There is no other day quite like your wedding day
