Wedding photography Aberdeen.
Here is a bit about how we work and what you can expect from us along with some testimonials and suppliers that we love to work with. If you are looking for our pricing then get in touch using the contact form and we can check our availability and send you our pricing guide.
You can expect us to arrive around 2 hours before your ceremony to cover the bride and groom prep. We love this part of the day, its always full of excitement and anticipation and even better is that you get to see what your other half was up to when it comes to viewing your wedding photos.
The best thing about having two photographers is the variety that you get with your story. One of us is always at the top and the other at the bottom of the aisle for the ceremony. We want to capture the bride coming down the aisle and the look on the grooms face. We remain discreet through out the ceremony, you wont even notice us there.
We love it, the more the better. Its a great way to get some natural images of you and your guests and you are literally just married! You can’t fake this kind of joy. After the ceremony we encourage you to mingle with your guests and take it all in before we head off the do the portraits. We want to capture candid moments its all part of the story. We have links to some great confetti suppliers if you scroll to the end.
The portraits are a chance for you guys to relax, we take a walk find some nice spots and have a laugh. The most we will ask you to do is get closer so don’t worry. No posing, just fun!
Group shots are still important even though our main focus is to document the day naturally, I mean when will you all be together and looking so smart again. What we don’t advise is having a huge list to get through. No one wants to stand around for these types of photos longer than needed. What we do advise is to have fun! Group shots do not need to be boring.
We love them, laughter, tears, this is where we really get to know you! We skulk around like photography ninjas to capture all the emotions of you and your guests.
Time to get your groove on!
Who doesn’t love a good dance. We will join you on the dance floor to capture those awesome moves, we might even have a wee boogie ourselves. We usually cant help ourselves.
Here are links to some of our favourite suppliers, whether its a venue, florist or caterer there is an abundance of talent and dedicated teams and individuals in the list to make your day as awesome as you imagine.
Kim and Tim
Now that the dust has settled and all the family are away and back to normality 🙁 I just wanted to send over a review.
These guys are just the best there is!
Hayley, you were an absolute joy to be around the morning of the wedding. Your calm and smiley nature just made everything so easy. Craig, the lads have all said what a true gent you were and that you kept them laughing and relaxed all morning. Tim said he’s made a pal for life!
Throughout the day, you were both just absolutely amazing. Made everything easy and straight forward, nothing was too much trouble. The group shots were executed quickly and without any problems…everything was just so chilled. The family and guests all complimented you guys on how lovely and friendly you were towards them.
We will be shouting from the rooftops who our photographers were and we can’t wait to see the images. I am so so happy we chose you both to capture the best day of our lives.
Sending you guys lots of love and thanks!!

We used Hayley and Craig for our wedding and it was the best decision we made. We are delighted our photos, the quality, the quantity and the friendly service were all first class. Our guests were very complimentary of Hayley and Craig and we would highly recommend to anyone looking for exciting yet elegant photographs that will leave you with wonderful memories of your big day!

Hayley and Craig are absolutely brilliant! From putting us at ease at our pre-wedding shoot (we’re both super awkward at posing) to travelling all the way down to Killin for our replanned covid wedding they went out of their way for us and were just so much fun to be around. Our guests all commented on how nice they were and how you didn’t notice them when they were taking photos at the ceremony. Also massive shout out to Craig for letting me cling onto his arm to get over the rocks to our first look photo location and stopping me from hitting the deck in my dress! We’ve had some preview shots back and we are soooo excited to see the rest of them 😍
Sarah and Simon
We are so glad we picked Hayley and Craig as our photographers. They’ve done lovely job for us and were also wonderful to work with, both on the day and otherwise.
We chose to work them for several reasons. Firstly, we saw they produced consistently good photos indoors and out. We also loved the warmth and emotion of their work and after seeing some full galleries (and seeing how high the overall standard was) they were our first choice to work with. We were very grateful too that they were willing to work with us on the price for our small weekday wedding, since they were initially over our (relatively tight) budget; especially since once of the alterations to our package to make it affordable was a lower number of minimum photos and we ended up receiving well over twice what we expected.
They haven’t disappointed, and truly went above and beyond for us on our wedding day. Not only did they do their job thoroughly well, but they really went beyond their job description in helping our day run smoothly. Although our day for the most part went perfectly, sadly we had issues with the florist for our wedding, one (of many >_<) was that they’d used a non-colour fast red ribbon; if it wasn’t for Hayley noticing her hands covered in dye when she went to move the flowers for a photo (and it looked like she’d just murdered someone!) my dress could have been ruined. Not only did she spot the problem but she worked to rectify it by using kitchen roll and a towel to get the worst of the dye off and taking some of the water out of the sink to let it dry. Both, and especially Craig as the second shooter also did far more than their fair share of fetching and carrying, whether that was getting me glasses of water (for some reason I seemed to spend most of my wedding day asking for water!) or carting around my sparkly clutch bag during our couples photos, or going to fetch my bouquet when we’d left it in Culbin Forest! All these things may sound small, but given we were running a DIY wedding with only 7 guests and no bridesmaids or groomsmen, having two more sets of helpful hands actually made a real difference.
Another thing I found is that (for us at least) they offered just the right level of direction for portraits. It wasn’t so much that it became intrusive or turned the whole wedding into a giant photoshoot, but neither was it so hands off that there was a lack of strong striking images. I’m not the most photogenic person in the world and both me and Simon can be very awkward to photograph so this was enough direction that we have lots of lovely photos, but not so much we felt awkward and self-conscious. A 100% candid/documentary photographer just would not have worked for us. I’m often not keen on photos of myself; and while I can say there are some I cringe at (not so much for anything lacking photographically, just I don’t like my face in them!), there are more than enough photos I really like to fill an album which is all I wanted really. There are just so many good photos (some of my absolute favourites didn’t even make it to the ‘highlights’ slideshow Hayley did for us and that was around 200 photos to start with!) I can’t even begin to think how I’ll pick between them.
Communication was really great too, with replies where needed usually within the day. Even though we were planning the wedding from afar and didn’t actually meet Hayley and Craig until the day I never had any worry at the back of my mind about them turning up or anything. We also got our photos back within a month of our wedding which I think is more than reasonable and Hayley rushed us some previews in time for our ‘at home celebration’ 12 days after the wedding (though she sent me them at close to midnight a couple of days before so I felt rather guilty that she’d stayed up doing them!).
So yeah, I’ll stop rambling now other than to say it’s definitely a recommendation from me.
