About

Hitched Wedding Awards Winner 2022

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

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.

My offer is a simple one: in return for my fee, I will photograph your wedding from the bride’s preparations until an hour after the first dance. 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.

I also offer engagement shoots, which can be an excellent way to overcome any pre-wedding nervousness about being photographed. I can photograph you at a place of your choosing, perhaps the site of your engagement, to tell the full story of your big day.

Please take a closer look at my portfolio and, 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

    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?

    Fantastic, friendly, professional and responsive photographer

    We're very happy to recommend Niall to anyone. He took the time to get to know us and was quick to respond to any questions. We did an initial engagement shoot with him, which was a great chance to get acquainted and get comfortable with being photographed, which we were a bit nervous about! For the wedding itself Niall was very professional in getting all the 'formal' shots we wanted, but the real highlight for us and our guests have been all the more candid shots of the day he managed to capture. He was with us from getting ready at 10am through until the evening dancing getting a great variety of shots! We had all the photos back within 3 weeks of the wedding and he kindly did some editing of a few to get the vital family group shots with everyone having eyes open and smiling! Thank you Niall for giving us some wonderful lasting mementos of the day!

    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.

    Beautiful shots

    I'm so pleased I chose Light Brush Photography to photograph an engagement shoot earlier this year. Niall was so professional and worked hard to capture some great images. He took the time to visit the location to plan his shots and made us feel at ease - and it really showed in the pictures he took for us as they are beautiful. Will definitely be recommending Light Brush Photography to my friends and family!

    Exceptional photographer

    Niall was a fantastic addition to our wedding planning and our wedding day. Niall visited both the church, reception and surrounding areas weeks before the wedding to know where the best shots could be taken and at what time of day they were best to take. We got some beautiful pictures of getting ready at home, the church, reception and on the canal. Niall got beautiful candid pictures of family members and friends during the day. Our wedding party enjoyed his banter and easy approach, and he was just in the background working away.
    Niall was professional and we got headline images back within a couple of days and most images back in less than 2 weeks, so no waiting for months to see how you pictures turned out. DELIGHTED WITH OUR CHOICE OF PHOTOGRAPHER and will be recommending him to friends and family.

    Amazing Photographer

    What can I say, Niall is totally amazing and his photos are perfect.
    Niall agreed to photograph our wedding the day before as my previously booked photographer had to self isolate. He was so professional and gathered all information he could prior to the wedding.
    On the day he was organised, professional, friendly and very accommodating. He went along with everything we wanted and was great at not pushing the posed photos which we did not want but did suggest some that I am really pleased he did do as they are so beautiful.
    We got all the photos within 10 days from the wedding and they are brilliant. Really happy with the quality and the way he has captured our day.
    I cannot fault anything at all he really is great and I would highly recommend him to everyone who asks.
    Thank you so much Niall for being part of our day and helping to make it amazing.
