About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2020

Last update: November 2023

Hi, I'm Elliot. I'm a wedding photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I shoot weddings, elopements and destination weddings for my fun-loving couples. I will document your day with artistry and truth: The laughter, the love, the emotion and everything in-between.

I love to capture the raw, unfiltered, real side of people. The goosebumps, the loud and quiet, the inside jokes, the gut busting laughs, you know, the real stuff. Anyone can create some awkward, fake, untrue version of who you are but I want to go much deeper than that.

After-all, great wedding photography isn't just about fancy camera techniques… It's about making you feel comfortable and fostering an environment where you can be your true authentic selves. If you are looking for someone who is all about capturing the unique, perfectly imperfect things that make you you, then I think we might just be the perfect fit.

About me.

I’m a laid back thirty-six-year-old, creative, wannabe surfer, who swapped his career in banking for a life of photographing people in love. I have a happy-go-lucky, playful personality and I wear my heart on my sleeve.

I have a degree in Press & Editorial Photography. I'm also an absolute workaholic. If I'm not shooting a wedding, I'm working on a new edit; talking to clients; experimenting with creative photography techniques, designing a wedding album or working on the business in some form. I aboslutely love what we do.

Extremely creative, natural and stunning photography and videography

Elliot captured our wedding this June in both photo and video and we were blown away by his creativity and talent! His style of editing is right up our street and simply stunning. He is such a friendly and personable guy and instantly made my husband and I feel at ease when we first met him for our pre-wedding shoot (included with our photography package). So many of our guests on our wedding day also commented on how lovely Elliot and his team were, and how they didn’t ever feel like they were being photographed (we swear these guys are ninjas!). Elliot’s packages are incredibly reasonably priced for all of the inclusions that you receive - yet another reason to look no further for your wedding / special occasion photographer! We received our preview photos within 24 hours, which were stunning (a selection are included with this review) and our videos and the remaining photographs are due very soon. Absolutely insane turnaround times given how busy Elliot seems to be! Thank you so much again guys for capturing our special day so magically. Can’t wait to see the rest of our photos and videos!

Beautiful Photos + Video, Excellent wedding package!

We cant recommend Elliot enough, We went for his 10 hour Photography and 8 hour Video Package. We wanted to steer away from too many of the old fashioned traditional photographs and asked him to capture more authentic candid shots and thats exactly what he did, he captured the day brilliantly. Its so wonderful to see the joy on everyones faces from that day. and all the fun that was had Our wedding video is also amazing (we've already watched it 100 times!! ) We'd definitely recommend Elliot and his team to be part of your day.

5-Star Photographer!

Elliot was absolutely perfect! We are from the US and had our wedding in Scotland. He was very responsive and timely in the lead up to the wedding and very flexible with our remote planning.

During the wedding day, Elliot was amazing! He was a fly on the wall while getting ready and got some amazing shots. He is not too commanding, but direct enough if you need it while posing.

We were so impressed by Elliot's work after the wedding. We had previews within a couple days of the wedding and our full, edited album of over 900 photos was complete within 2 weeks! He was so prompt. Not to mention, the photos turned out beautifully and his style is exactly what we wanted.

Safe to say we had a great experience with Elliot and would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Elliot!

Elliot is a gem

Elliot was amazing from start to finish, his warm personality drew us in at the Dundee wedding exhibition and his communication from there was spot on. Our wedding video is absolutely beautiful, it gets me in tears every time! He’s done such an amazing job and captured every special moment of our big day so perfectly - thank you so much Elliot!

Better photos than we dreamed possible

We eloped just the 2 of us to Edinburgh. The weather, overcast and a little chilly. We weren’t familiar with the city and had no real idea of what we wanted from our photos, other than we didn’t want them to be cheesy and ‘staged’. We felt super awkward at the thought of being photographed. Elliot. Delivered. Completely flexible (like when I suggested we just pack it in and have a cup of tea) but also FULL of great ideas (and not afraid to sneak past grumpy Castle officials to get the perfect stealth shot). We loved spending the day with him and, 8 months later, still look at our photos with nothing but gratitude and awe.

Elliot made our day perfect!

Elliot is phenomenal, his passion for photography and art of capturing the moment have totally gobsmacked us. He went above and beyond to capture moments of our elopement, while staying super professional and absolutely invisible, I don't even know how he got some of the cutest moments! If I could I'd give him ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars out of 5! My husband to this days doesn't shut up how "into it" Elliot was! We'll be definitely back for more 📸

Capturing our day in the Scottish countryside

Where to begin! We are in love with our beautiful photos from Elliot Caunce Photography. We got married during COVID restrictions and Elliot was so accommodating. We were able to combine a small church wedding with beautiful photos out in the countryside. He captured everything we were hoping for and more! Elliot is so friendly and immediately put everyone at ease (even those more camera shy!). Really can't recommend him enough!

Brilliant photographer, brilliant photos - 5* all round!

Elliot was the perfect photographer for us: all his efforts in the run up to the wedding, the day itself, and the final photos matched exactly what we wanted. Everything ran so smoothly, and he managed to keep two camera shy people smiling and looking great for which we are very grateful!

There are so many great snaps of moments that might have flashed past us on the day which he captured, which was exactly what we were hoping for - and so much more! And photos of us where we didn't even realise he were there are a credit to his work!

Our friends and family who have seen the photos and video so far are all in very high praise of his work, and rightly so. Everything captures the essence of the day, and feels very “us” so perfectly.

We love finding little moments to sit down together to watch the video or flick through the photos, bringing back so many memories and smiles. Very much looking forward to getting our favourite images printed up.

We cannot recommend him highly enough, book him up before his diary fills out!!

Relaxed. Like having another friend at your wedding.

NEW
First off the photos that we have from our wedding, are incredible- Elliot truly managed to capture how magical our day was. Secondly, he made both Ross and I feel very relaxed. We were both very open that we didn’t want our photos to feel posey & the result is incredible, our photos are so natural. Each photo has a story that goes along with it. We would 100% recommend Elliot for your wedding/elopement/any pictures you need

Very relaxed and beautiful photos!

We had an engagement and wedding shoot with Elliot. Michael and I do not usually like having photos taken but we were immediately put at ease. I recommend having a pre-wedding shoot to remove any additional nerves from the wedding day! Elliot was very accommodating and great on the day - we love the photos!. We went for the photography and videography package and Pete did a fantastic job, we are very glad we went for both! Thanks so much Elliot, we will be in touch for future sessions when we visit Edinburgh! Milly and Michael.

Couldn’t have picked a better photographer

We are so happy we chose elliot as our wedding photographer, he kept us organised on the run up to the day. On the day he was so discreet getting all the photos we asked for and more. We’ve had a sneak peak of our photos so far and we absolutely love them. We really couldn’t have asked for more. Elliot was very relaxed, all our guests have said how great he was on the day too.

Absolutely Stunning

Elliot shot our engagement photos in January at The Trossachs National Park. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to take our photos. The quality of photos he provides are worth every penny. Getting a small video of our engagement photos has been my favorite yet. Elliot was really easy to work with. With me being from the USA and my fiance from Scotland we knew we wanted someone to capture not only us but the gorgeous views in Scotland. We are so glad to have picked Elliot and can not wait to return to Scotland and have him take them again.

Great Natural and Relaxed Photographer

We really enjoyed having Elliot do both our pre-wedding shoot and the day itself. Neither me nor my wife are experienced being photographed and Elliot struck the perfect balance of helping us find great looking but still natural ways to let him capture our day. I would recommend him and he provided a lovely mix of candid and formal photographs.
