WEDDINGS & ENGAGEMENTS​

Getting started how I will photograph your day

let's start your day. bridal & groom Prep

Everything from hair & make up, flowers, dress, right down to the smallest of details I will photograph.  If you are both getting ready at the venue, this makes everything that much easier.  Lets get a bottle of champagne open, and chat about your special day ahead.

the ceremony

All ceremonies are different some long, and others short.  I will be as quiet as possible, whilst photographing your wedding ceremony.  I will simple blend in and not be to obtrusive.  Exchanging of rings, any readings will be captured.

Groups & Candids

After the ceremony, I won’t be whisking you away just yet.  I will leave you to enjoy a drink, have some canapes, and greet all your guests.  Formals, I only spend roughly 15 mins max for any group photograph’s you would like.  Afterall, I want you to be with your loved ones, & guests.  A wedding day, espicially in the afternoon can go really quick, so I won’t take up to much of your time.  It is during this period, lots of natural candid photo’s will be captured.

bride & groom

My favourite part of any wedding day is spending 15 minutes or so with my couples.  By this point the nerves will have vanished, and you can really be yourselves.  We will create some wonderful stunning photograph’s of you both.  I like to get creative with off camera flash, confetti & veil tosses, coloured silhouettes’ and champagne sprays.

speeches & Dancing

As with the ceremony, I will capture all the emotions, from laughter to tears of the top table and guests.  After this part of your day, you can sit back, relax and take it all in.  Time to get this party started, be it a rock band, DJ or ceilidh I will photograph the first few dances of the evening.

As previously mentioned, two of my packages include a complimentary 1-2 hour pre-wedding photoshoot at a location of your choice.

Pre-wedding shoots are advisable, helping you feel more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera in preparation for your big day! It allows us to get to know one another which in turn makes for a more enjoyable, memorable wedding day and I also have the privilege of capturing the most special moments of your life, for you and your family to cherish forever.

FAQs

Absolutely. I’d love to catch up over a cuppa. This is advisable so we can get to know one another.  I am happy to facetime or zoom, whichever is more convenient to yourself.

I am based in Aberdeen and cover all of the Shire. However, I am more than happy to travel throughout Scotland and the UK. I also have a second base not far from Buckie on the Moray Coast. If the venue is further afield, 50 miles approximately, and requires an overnight stay, you will incur a charge for this.

Whatever the weather, we will always capture epic photos both inside and out. I do my research of a venue beforehand to ensure the best locations for your wedding photographs.

Yes, I am fully insured with public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

I highly recommend you present your beautiful wedding day images in a bespoke wedding album.  Albums are finished to the highest quality.  Let me know which photographs you would like in your album and I will do the rest. Typically around 80 to 100 photos for your memorable wedding album to show your family and friends.

I shoot Nikon, I have two professional camera bodies: the D850 and D800. I use a variety of Sigma and Nikon lenses as well as flashguns.

This depends on the package coverage and guest numbers, expect to receive around 350-400 fully edited finished images for a half day, and 500/600 for a full day wedding. With a second photographer this can be a lot more. You will receive your wedding images on a personalized USB and keepsake box which will be delivered to you.

An online password protected viewing gallery will be made available for family and friends to view.  Here you have the option of purchasing prints.

Kind Words
For our wedding, we decided to give Alan a call based on his stunning photos from his gallery and we wanted something similar. He was very friendly, very professional and took us through the various options available to us to capture our perfect day. On the day of the wedding, he was doing his thing very professionally and not getting in the way. We got some stunning photos as he had secret access to a building local to our venue that provided stunning backdrops for our photos. They were truly incredible. Alan was most definitely worth the investment and I would recommend him to anyone. We got a flash drive with all the photos and he made us a beautiful photo album, one with the photos actually formed the pages themselves, not just photos stuck onto a book page. Very professional, excellent photographer and a great guy. What more could you want? easily earned the 5 star rating and helped us remember the moments from our special day with stunning photography.

Informal & Relaxing Allan was a very relaxed and easy photographer to be around. His aim was to capture natural photographs of our day and as such didn’t force anyone to pose in any particular way for photographs just taking advantage of the atmosphere and surroundings. Very likeable guy, easy to get along with. Even at short notice he arranged a pre-wedding shoot to get to know us before the day. Highly recommended. H&R

Great work Alan was great! Come up with few places for perfect pictures, on a day everything when nice a smooth. After all photos come up amazing! So happy with all hard work he did for us. E & J


Superb service provided by Alan. My wife and I were recommended Alan by a close friend to photograph our special day in Aberdeen. After viewing some previous wedding photographs on his website, we were sold. Alan was great from start to finish. We were very happy with the precious moments he captured which we will treasure forever.
