Tell us about your business!


Hello! I’m Megan and I have been photographing weddings since 2019 in Scotland and across the world and I’m so lucky I can call my passion my job. I began by capturing friends’ weddings and this snowballed into where I am today.


What would you like couples to know about you?


I have a background in journalism, travel and performance photography and wedding photography really is an amalgamation of all of these - essentially telling the story of the people in front of you in an honest and authentic way. The first wedding I shot just felt like something clicked into place and I was right where I was meant to be.


I also love to push boundaries creatively and focus on the details of what makes a specific wedding unique to the couple as well as being super approachable, chilled and just a friend to clients before, after and during their wedding day.


Where are you based?


I live with my husband in Scotland in a lovely village equidistant to Loch Lomond, the coast and the city of Glasgow. I’m also close to Glasgow and Edinburgh’s international airports so really handy for destination bookings!


Do you travel for weddings?


Yes! Travel and exploring is a huge part of why I do what I do. I’m so lucky to have captured weddings and elopements all over the world, including Spain, Greece, Italy, France, Hawai’i, Jordan, South Africa, Ireland, England and of course many all over beautiful Scotland.


How would you describe your style?


Filmic, subtly bold, relaxed.


What is your most memorable career moment?


There have been so many! But I think any time anyone chooses me to go to a far-off destination to capture their wedding. That they trust me and my work that much is so rewarding and the fact I get to combine my love of travel and photography is something I will never take for granted.


What inspires you?


Kind, decent people. Love - romantic, familial and platonic. Good stories. Old or independent films. New places. Unique details. For destination weddings I will often watch movies set in that place to get excited and inspire myself beforehand - hear the music, see the way the light and the colours are.


What motivates you to do what you do?


I think back to how this was once a far off dream - and that younger me could never have imagined I would be able to create art for a living, and be fairly successful at it. I still have to pinch myself sometimes.


How would you describe your working style?


Laid back, friendly and unobtrusive but I can be gently directorial when I need to be. Most couples tell me that working with me was just like hanging out with an old friend. I really love getting to know them and their stories.


Do you shoot digitally, on film or both?


I mainly shoot on digital Canons but also have an SLR film camera and some point and shoots. I offer film as an add on to any of my packages.


Do you have custom packages according to individual needs?


Yes - I have elopement and wedding packages I have tailored and tweaked over time and experience, but I’m always open to customising these depending on what a client wants. I also have optional add ons like engagement shoots, albums, prints etc.


What is a favourite product or service that you offer and why?


Albums. I truly enjoy creating these for my couples and I am finding more are choosing my top package which has an album, in a move away from this heavily digital world we live in. There is something so beautiful about seeing an image in a book and feeling it in your hands rather than on a screen. It brings it into your home physically and helps bring it to life. I am currently working on a new coffee table/editorial album option to elevate this experience for my clients even more.


Where would you love to travel to for work?


I was lucky enough to live in New Zealand a few years ago and I would love to go back there again. I think New Zealand (and Australia) do weddings so well and the landscapes in the South Island of New Zealand have to be seen to be believed. It’s one of my favourite places in the world.


Who is your dream client?


Just easy-going people who don’t take themselves too seriously and fully trust my work and my processes. Who have style, are interested in art and the world and trust their own visions rather than following trends or tradition too much. I’ve been really lucky with the wonderful clients I work with.


What is your advice to couples getting married?


I just recently got married myself and the best advice I would give is delegate, delegate, delegate. Whether that’s by booking a planner or coordinator or giving jobs to friends and family. You just physically cannot do everything yourself and that’s okay.


Also, a lovely piece of advice I received was to wear a different perfume on your wedding day/the days around it, and the smell will always bring back memories of those times. It’s been just a few weeks since ours and I can tell you this works!
