Wedding Photographer based in Edinburgh, UK

Capturing Love, One Click at a Time.

Born and raised in Edinburgh, my passion for photography was kindled during my tenure in the Royal Air Force, where I seized opportunities to capture moments from truly unique vantage points. Post-service, my journey took me through varied terrains of photography - from the spirited energy of nursery shoots to the exhilarating world of skydiving captures. Yet, it was wedding photography that truly resonated with my soul. My dedication to the craft led me to specialize in Off Camera Flash (OCF) techniques. With OCF, I'm able to manipulate and control light in ways that elevate each shot. Whether it's highlighting the soft glow on a bride's face, capturing the intricate details of the wedding dress, or producing dramatic night-time scenes, this technique ensures every pivotal moment is showcased in its best light. By blending traditional shots with these OCF-enhanced 'wow' moments, I offer couples a wedding album that is both timeless and uniquely captivating. With my distinctive approach, I promise every couple a collection of memories that beautifully encapsulate the essence and magic of their special day.

Thank you David

We had David do the photography for our wedding day. He was very informative on the run up and very good at communicating with us and keeping us informed of everything. On the day he was a pleasure to have around while we were all getting ready and made things fun and lighthearted which really helped decrease the stress levels. He took some amazing pictures that he had made into a beautiful album for us that we will enjoy looking back at in years to come. We would 100 % recommend David for capturing your special moments on your special day!

Firstly I'd like to say that we had the most amazing day with David as our photographer! He was with us from start to finish. At times we didn't know he was there as he was in and around us all sneaking photos here and there! So if anyone is camera shy you won't know he is there. As a bride he made me feel at ease, he made everything seem so easy and included every moment! Our pictures are outstanding and of course, our album which is like no other I've seen before. His work is just simply amazing We a so glad he was ours for the day and would love and recommend to anyone who needs a photographer for any reason to use him you won't be disappointed! Thanks David - Mr & Mrs Gray x
