About

I’ve been photographing weddings for over 8 years and there is no signs of stopping. My aim is to make your wedding day as relaxed, chilled and care-free as possible and I think that reflects in my images. All my communication with you would take place prior to the wedding day, so you don’t even have to ask a question on the day itself; just wee extras you can think of when I’m there.

With over 300 weddings under my belt, I can certainly say I’ve seen and done it all. From shooting a wedding with 400+ non-English speaking guests, to shooting in the grandest castles in all of Scotland, there is no place that I’m uncomfortable to shoot in.

Have a wee look at my work and see for yourself!

The photos you see are the ones that are 90% of the time ‘caught in the moment.’ The direction I give you on the day is ‘have a wee chat’ and we take it from there.

Honestly, it works.

‘I hate getting ma photo taken.’

Well you haven’t had it taken by me yet…

Francis a fantastic choice for your big day

Francis was a fantastic choice for our photographer, we got all the photos we wanted plus many more we were not expecting and did not know that they had been taken, when we got out photos it reminded us of our great day. Our wedding was delayed for 2 years and we are based in Australia, so all our correspondence was via email, which Francis responded to quickly.

Wonderful photographer

We hired Francis as our wedding photographer, originally in 2020 but it had to be postponed twice because of covid. Francis was very flexible and accommodating, and when our special day finally came around Francis worked so hard to capture everything in a wonderful collection of photographs.

I would recommend Francis to everybody.

Professional

Francis has been brilliant start to finish. He’s been reliable, easy to reach, patient and delivered real quality work. We had a brilliant day, he helped us feel relaxed and gave us time to enjoy our photo on the day. The final images are amazing. Thanks again Francis!

Amazing Photographer!

Francis was an amazing addition to our wedding day! He was so flexible when we had a number of date changes, and we were so happy with our final photos. Photos were given in a quick turnaround too which was amazing!

Fantastic photographer

Francis covered our wedding fairly last minute after our original photographer was unwell. He made us feel so comfortable right away, getting in contact to check our timeline for the day and any particular shots we were hoping for aside from the usual! You could see his attention to detail throughout the day and we had so many beautiful candid shots that we didn't even realise were happening alongside our posed ones.
He also kept in contact after the wedding with updates on our album, with a very good turnaround time.
We would recommend him to anyone and have already had a couple of friends ask for his details!
