Hitched Wedding Awards Winner 2024, 2023 and 2022.

Firstly, congratulations on your engagement! And, secondly, thank you for taking a closer look at what I have to offer.

About me - and my offer to you

I am a passionate wedding photographer who covers events in the Edinburgh/Lothian, Scottish Borders, Newcastle, Northumberland and Cumbria areas.

Photographing weddings in a genuine pleasure for me – and not just a business. Being invited to spend time with couples and their families on the happiest day of their lives is a huge privilege and an equally large responsibility. I aim to capture all the big ticket moments of your day: the all-important bridal (and sometimes groom) preparations in the morning, the bride’s walk down the aisle, the essential family photos and speeches – and the cutting of the cake. But just as important are the little details: intimate looks between couples, the rings, the dress, the shoes and the spirit of the day through close attention to your choice of flowers and decoration.

My photographs are about colour and movement. It is so important to me to capture the colour popping from the bride’s bouquet or the subtle lighting as it changes throughout the day. Equally important is capturing the swish of a dress and the movement of your guests as the party gets going. Most of all, my wedding photography is about capturing the fun and celebration of your day and ensuring you have a set of beautiful pictures that evoke the atmosphere of your wedding to cherish for decades to come. The photographs can be as posed or as candid as you like – but whichever your choice, I will do my very best to ensure you’re at ease and enjoying yourself.

My fee for a full day

In return for my fee of £800 (less a 5% Hitched discount) and any parking costs, I will photograph your wedding from the bride’s preparations until an hour after the first dance. I will deliver 35 headline images within a week of your wedding, with a total of around 350 images within a month of your big day.

My fee for five hours

If you aren't looking for a photographer to capture the entire day, I charge £500 for 5 hours (less a 5% Hitched discount) plus any parking costs.

Next steps!

Please take a closer look at my portfolio and reviews.. If you like my style, don’t hesitate to get in touch and I’d be delighted to meet in person or virtually over Zoom.

Whatever your decision, I wish you the very best of luck – and thank you for stopping by.

Niall

Wonderful Wedding Pictures

We recently had our wedding on the 28/10/23 and Niall was our photographer. We are absolutely delighted by our pictures and would recommend Niall to everyone that wants real photos of great quality. The service was perfect from our initial call to receiving our final pictures, which we received within two weeks of our wedding!

Niall is outstanding! Thank you for making our day perfect and with such wonderful memories to share with our loved ones.

Captured the day

Niall was an amazing photographer. From the moment we contacted him, he was great at keeping on touch and answering any questions we had. On the day he just went about his business in an unobtrusive way. How he captured the photos he did, I do not know. We have had so much feedback from guests at how good he was and how the photos have really captured the spirit of our wedding. We are delighted with the memories we have through the photos.

Couldn’t recommend enough!!!

I’m not sure where to start. Niall was brilliant from start to finish. His passion for his work is clear and he works to understand exactly what the couple are looking for from their day. He was super responsive before the wedding while we were planning and on the day when things had to change, such as the willingness of our toddler to play ball any longer. The turnaround of our photos was in lightening speed time and we love the quality of the pics! He went above and beyond throughout. Got to know us, our venue and made our day perfect! Excellent value for money. Thank you so much.

Superb photographer!

Niall was brilliant. He blended in with our friends and family on our wedding day which meant we ended up with some wonderful pictures.
We received some headline shots within a week of our wedding and very shortly after the main collection. We would highly recommend him. Thank you so much again Niall!

You need look no further, Niall was amazing.

Myself and my partner got married in October this year and was joined by Niall from Light Brush Weddings for our special day.
In the run up Niall offered a really personalised service, offering to see our venue and making sure everything we wanted was possible on our day concerning our photo's.
On the day itself Niall made myself and my partner feel really comfortable and was an essential part to our day. Niall was so easy to get along with and all our guests loved him. In addition, Niall went on to offer us an additional evening at reasonable cost for our larger evening party.
Niall got our photos to us very quickly and we were so delighted with the result it brought us to tears.
We would both suggest Niall to anyone getting married in the North and cannot thank him enough for all his hard work.

The BEST photographer ever

It was an absolute joy to have Niall as part of our day! He made us feel so at ease which was important for a couple who don’t love photos, and a very anxious bride. We didn’t want to do too many “posey” shots, but Niall encouraged us to do the ones we were comfortable with which gave us some lovely shots. He also got so many lovely candid pictures which is exactly what we asked for! We also couldn’t believe how quickly Niall got our pictures back. We got our headline pictures back within 3 days and our entire album back within 15 days. We could not have asked for anymore from Niall and would recommend him to anyone!!

Spot on. Absolutely spot on!

Pre-wedding - he spent his time to do research on the wedding venue.
Arrived early - he was there for every moment after my breakfast.
Dedication - He lied on the floor in order to get the best shot.
Professional - He didn’t want to stop until he took the perfect shot.
Friendly - Big big smile all the time. I didn’t feel intimidated or embarrassed at all. He is just like a friend straight away.
Service - I received ALL of my pictures within a week. Good pictures, good quality pictures in A. WEEK. !!!!! (I’m sure he might take longer sometimes but he kept me posted about his progress throughout the week, and he gives super friendly replies too.)

Personal - I was ridding a horse, he was chasing after us with two cameras and a bag on him (bless him.) Just to get some good shots. I’m sure same situation with other photographers, they would much prefer we stay still lol.

So,
What are you waiting for?

Amazing photographer

What an absolute fantastic photographer, did a real professional job and was so easy to work with. Had us doing photographs and just moving us 6-7 inches so the pictures were perfect. He arri ed at the Ramside for 8.30am to take pictures of my wife getting ready and was there til we had the first dance at 8.30pm! Cant wait to see our pictures and im sure they will be tremendous. I would certainly recommend this photographer for the price and his professionalism. Never stopped taking pictures and didnt even know he was there most of the time! Will put some pictures up when we recieve them off Niall.

Thanks again Niall

And anybody thinking of a photographer..get this man booked! Absolute gem and made our day go so smoothly

Amazing, couldn’t be happier!

Fantastic from start to finish, from communication to perfectly capturing our day. We all felt so at ease and the quality in the images is outstanding. He really understood the atmosphere of our wedding and went above and beyond to ensure it was exactly as we envisioned it. We couldn’t be happier with how Niall captured our day we would 100% recommend him.

I can tell you in no uncertain terms that this is the photographer that you need at your wedding.

Niall is beyond compare to any of the other photographer we enquired with for our wedding, to begin with his communication was exceptional and really put in effort to ensure that he was the right fit for us and could provide us with what we envisioned.
He spent time getting to know us, the venue itself and the staff, planning the shots well in advance and coming up with a plan to ensure that photographs wouldn’t intrude on the schedule for our big day.
He was personable, enthusiastic and such a genuine personality that he made any issues or problems seem effortless to overcome. I cannot understate the importance of such a calming influence leading up to and on the day. He was great with our guests as well as children and really felt like a wanted guest, which assisted him to get some beautiful shots, while simultaneously remaining professional.
His prices do not reflect the excellent quality of his work, we are delighted with what he’s given us to remember our big day and if I ever need a photographer again for any purposes in the future he will be the man I call.
