Romantic Photoshoot with Expert Wedding Photographer in Edinburgh and Galsgow
Your day needs to make just two people deliriously happy–as happy as you make each other.
You know you’ve dreamed about it since being a little girl. You’d flip through thick wedding magazines until they were dog-eared. When you’d drive past that bridal shop, you secretly hoped the light would turn red so you could linger and look just a little bit longer. And when you were a bridesmaid, you willed that damn bouquet to find its way to your outstretched fingers.
Together with my creative approach, we will make your wedding day the most outstanding, awesome event of your life, to date. I will channel all of my wedding photographer expertise into capturing the raw emotion, crazy laughter, and the unavoidable bumbles that all come together to make your day uniquely yours be it in Edinburgh, Glasgow or anywhere else throughout Scotland. I can’t wait to capture the elegance, the smiles, the happy tears, and even the shoes off, dance-your-pants-off part of the reception!
Why I Would Love Take Care of Your Wedding Photography
Your wedding is such a special day. It’s the beginning a new life that you’re building together, and from that point forward outlook, viewpoint, and priorities will never be the same.
I LOVE weddings! This is why they fire my passion:
• I love how unique every wedding is, and love the creative potential of my wedding photography
• It’s all about vision – I’m a visual person, so an unfolding wedding inspires my creativity, and my vision for the creation of your photos
• The atmosphere at a wedding is full of excitement, joy, and fun, and it feels great to be a part of it!
• I love helping couples through their journey of their wedding—from the initial stages of planning, learning all about personalities, preferences, and their vision for the big day.
• Witnessing the raw emotion of a wedding leaves me humbled and happy.
• The different parts of the wedding day allow me to unleash my creativity and create an array of beautiful artwork that reflects the feeling and emotion of each stage of the day.
My ultimate goal is to create wedding photos that will be treasured for a lifetime, something you can look back on … and fall in love all over again.

Communicating and planning your wedding photography.
Communication with my couples troughout the process is paramount to me. You will always know what is our next step in process. I will be happy to answer your questions as soon as I can. We even will meet up at least 3 times before your big day, just to make sure that everything goes as planned. You really don’t want to worry if your photographer knows what they are doing or even if they will show up for the wedding. I like to be organised for your big day.
Direction during your photography experience
Most of my brides always say to me ‘oh we just want natural photos with no posing’ My questions to that always is if they want to look good in photos or hope that at least few photos will look good. I know word posing is not the most appealing to couples, but there has to be some sort of direction from photographer to make sure you will love your photos. Of course not to the point that you look like stiff dolls, but just to give you a starting point for the pose and then it is all about your own connection and moments.
Pre wedding test session
This part of the photography planning process is probably most important to you. During these sessions I would take you to the venue and actually would talk you trough your wedding days photography plan. We would take many test images and my aim is to establish really good connection with my couples. It will be very fun and relaxed, but at the same time would give you good idea what would be happening on the day. Once your big day arrives, you already will know what to do and feel a LOT more relaxed. My couples love this part and it means more pretty images for you. If you would like to go to more personal place to you, like a beach or park, then we can have more fun on the same day as your test session.
Creative and relaxed approach
I’m very vision driven photographer. I see images and possibilities everywhere I go. I love to make these visions to come live. This is where my creative side kicks in. For you that means that you not only will get some standard poses images fro your families, but also fantastic artwork for your walls. I love making my couples comfortable in front of camera, love talking to you, teasing and just having fun. I want to be personable and connected to you guys. To have most awesome moments first you have to be 100% comfortable with your photographer, period.
We came across A-Fotografy through internet research as we were planning our scottish wedding from Australia. We were initially impressed by his website and amazing images gallery – it was exactly the unique, creative style we were looking for. After speaking with him via skype we were left with no doubt that he would make our special day truly amazing and memorable, so we booked him in immediately.
What we got was even better than we ever could have dreamed – his creativity and expertise shine through in each and every photo. Armands and his assistant not only covered all the standard wedding day illustration shots, but went above and beyond to create some truly special masterpieces that everyone we show raves about.
His dedication and thoroughness were evident in the time he took to research the venue (numerous visits to test the light and find photo shoot locations), in meeting prior for an ‘engagement’ style get-to-know-you shoot, turning up the night before the wedding to get all the accessories shots (less to do on the day), and then arriving hours earlier than necessary and staying late for us in order to get every shot on his ‘list’.
With A-fotografy, it is not about the number of hours you have booked him for, it’s about him truly capturing your entire day, your relationship, your story. We couldn’t recommend him highly enough!
Coverage from getting ready throughout the late evening
You will love your story from start to end. I want to tell trough the photographs as much as I can. You have spent month and month or even a year for organising your wedding, creating your perfect day. I want to show off all that effort in your story. From little details to late evening crazy dance moves. Photo story would start from your morning prep till late evening. If you are not so much into my late evening photography, then it is fine we can finish after first dance.
Within a month to see full gallery of your wedding photos
You really don’t want to wait and wait for wedding photos. Normally within a week I make a blog post story about your wedding. This would be highlights from your day with around 70 images. Sometime around 3-4 weeks you will see full gallery.
Second photographer to cover more candid portraits and guest portraits
Very often I get asked why would you want two photographers on the day. It simply comes back to telling full story of the day. Most likely you as a bride will want to know what boys were doing during morning part or have those candid guest images during reception hour or beautiful candid portraits during the group photos. To you it would mean more beautiful photos and most of these photos would be nice candid moments. I photograph my visions and creative images, but my second photographer will give totally different feel of images and style. I just love to work with second photographer and it is always more fun during the day too. Not to mention that there is that extra reassurance for you in case if something happens on the day.
How Do We Get Started?
Drop me an email and tell me a little bit about yourselves and how you see your wedding day going down (eg. themed, elegant, bohemian, casual and small, etc.)
I promise to get back to you within 24 hours to further discuss your big day.
We can meet over coffee (I’m buying!) or Skype to chat a bit more about your vision for your wedding day.
Hopefully you’re as thrilled as I am that we are going to work together to make your wedding unforgettable, and we can get all the pesky legal and money stuff (contract and deposit) out of the way.
Then, you can get on with the rest of your wedding planning because your photos are guaranteed to be awesome.
