ABOUT MY ALTERNATIVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN SCOTLAND

Hello

BEHIND THE CAMERA

Hey, I’m Danielle
that certain “je ne sais quoi” that you didn’t know you needed. 

FIRSTLY, IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR TRADITIONAL, I’M NOT YOUR GAL. HOWEVER – FUN, WARM, AND EMOTIONAL PICTURES, NOW THAT, I CAN DO!

I’m an alternative wedding photographer Based just outside of Aberdeen, Scotland but available anywhere.

I’m going to promise you two things.

1. No awkward posing
2. F***ing awesome pictures

 List of things I can’t promise.

1. Not to steal your dog if it’s attending your wedding (definitely take your dog!)

2. Not to pinch a canapé…or two.

Frequently asked

Alternative bride and groom outdoors - alternative wedding photographer Scotland
HOW DO WE BOOK?

A £400 booking fee and a couple of signatures seal the deal. Consequently, I am all yours on your special date. This fee is deducted from your chosen package.

CAN WE MEET YOU BEFORE BOOKING?

Oh, absolutely! It is not only encouraged but sort of a necessity! Therefore, I like to pencil in a wee Zoom call with everyone who enquires. It’s nothing formal, just a chat over coffee, so PJ’s are absolutely acceptable!

 

I AM HAVING A VERY SMALL WEDDING, CAN WE BOOK YOU BY THE HOUR?

Yeah, I LOVE small weddings! As such, I offer an hourly rate and bespoke packages for micro weddings and elopements. Just drop me a line using my contact form at the bottom of this page and I can send you a quote for your requirements!

HOW DO YOU WORK ON THE DAY?

I like to think I will become the friend that you never knew you needed at your wedding. I will fluff your dress, calm your nerves, and be by your side for most of the day. Most importantly, nothing we do will feel forced or posed and in no time we will feel like old friends! As such, you will barely notice the presence of my camera as I snap away documenting your day.

During your couples’ portraits, which usually consist of a short walk around your venue, for instance, I will give your gentle guidance resulting in those natural moments. I won’t keep you from your guests too long, around 20-30 minutes,  but a nice chance to have a small breather as newlyweds for the first time.

For those who wish to keep a little tradition – we can run through a group shot list, which can take around 30 mins for around 8 groups.

My cameras are by my side all day. Therefore the only time I put them down is during your meal when I am backing up your images to my laptop.

Oh, and I will be there right in the middle of the dance floor, you betcha! 😉

SHOULD WE ADD A SECOND SHOOTER?

If you wish to include a second shooter, there is a £250 fee.

For smaller weddings, that are booking on a bespoke hourly package, most of the time it is not necessary and I am more than happy to work alone.

However, for weddings that wish to have both morning preps and guest photos covered, a second shooter is usually a good shout.

WHAT ARE YOUR TRAVEL FEES?

I am based just outside of Aberdeen, Scotland. The first 50 miles of my journey are free, and just 45p per mile after that. Overnight fees may apply if I am required to book a hotel the night before or after your wedding.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?

Would it even be a Scottish wedding if it didn’t?! If it rains – the show must go on! However, rain makes for some of the most romantic photographs. But if you just want to keep your hair dry – I bring along the most beautiful see-through dome umbrella for you. On the other hand, ifyou want to stay inside – that’s cool too! (but I promise I won’t keep you out there long and it will be so worth it!)

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?

Around 300-800 images depending on the coverage you choose.

WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR GALLERY?

Within 3 days I will have a selection of sneak peeks for you, and your full gallery will be ready within 6-8 weeks. However, likely sooner depending on the time of year.

CAN OUR GUESTS VIEW OUR GALLERY ONLINE?

Every wedding will receive an online gallery, which they can share with guests. Guests will also be able to purchase prints directly from the gallery.

CAN I MAKE MY OWN PRINTS FROM THE IMAGES?

Absolutely! All my wedding packages come with printing permission for personal use, therefore you can print to your hearts content

CAN YOU HELP US FIND OTHER SUPPLIERS?

Sure! I have made a handy list of some of my favourite Scottish wedding suppliers. You can check them out by clicking right here

CAN YOU HELP US CREATE A STATEMENT WALL ART DISPLAY WITH OUR NEW IMAGES?

YES YES YES! 

Wall art, my favourite thing! 🙂 

You can ready all aBout my wall art displays and your options HERE.
