Hi, I'm Bill
My life is all about my family, photography, cats, horses and adventures! Oh and cake! And coffee! Cake and coffee!!
I found a passion for photography at a very early age and despite many career paths I always found mysef returning to photography. The only workspace where I feel completely comfortable!

How do you photograph weddings?
On your wedding day, all I want to capture are the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique. A very natural, unobtrusive, documentary style of photography. That said I am happy to capture any group shots you would like but even these should be light and fun. I would want to take some time out to capture some unique bride and groom shots incorporating the surrounding elements, landscape and light.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I can be found hiding in a Glen in Argyll, Scotland. Despite it's remoteness I am not far from civilisation and can easily travel. I have travelled the length and breadth of the UK to capture events including a big wedding in Aberdeen and an elopement in Cornwall. I have also had the pleasure of capturing weddings, etc as far as Italy, Spain, Cyprus and Switzerland.
When will we get our photos?
You will receive a preview the very next day (in some cases the same day). Length of time to edit does depend on the time of year (Am I busy!) and how many photographs do I have to edit. I like to complete my editing within 8 weeks at the very latest but do feel free to pester me as it often helps : ) You will receive a link to a private online gallery for viewing, sharing and downloading. You will also receive a link to download an app onto your phone with access to your gallery.
How many pictures will we receive?
Hundreds! I can not possibly give a precise number as there are so mnay factors. How many guests, how much time, how much is happening and so much more. I can say that there are no restrictions! Once editing has been completed you will receive every image.
“Just wanted to thank you for all the effort you put in at the weekend, and for making it such an easy and enjoyable experience. Thank you so much Bill (who is also a ninja)!”
