About the Portfolio

This portfolio contains just some of the reportage images taken from several weddings Laurie has attended.

Style

Laurie is a documentary photographer meaning that he always captures images which best convey the stories, emotions and characters from every unique wedding day.
Reportage photography is more than just taking images when people are not looking, it is a style in which the photographer does not interfere with the day, stop the flow of events or ask people to pose. Instead the focus is on the couple and all that goes on during the day resulting in honest and genuine images captured with care and delicacy.
This kind of photography is timeless and will keep you coming back to the album year after year.

Glasgow Wedding Photography

Seamill Hydro Wedding – Documentary Wedding Photography Glasgow

Documentary Wedding Photography Glasgow.

Here are a few images from the day at Seamill Hydro. It was a brilliant day and felt like no time at all.

I had the pleasure of working with an amazing videographer Adam from Inspire Video so it will be great to compare and see how the images and video work together.

Georgian House Hotel Wedding Photography – Documentary Wedding Glasgow

A recent and intimate wedding at the Georgian House Hotel was very special to me as I have become great friends with Lindsay, the groom, as he owns one of the best Coffee shops I have ever been in. Aroma Coffee house is now my go-to coffee store!

Documentary Photography Moments

On a wedding day literally anything can happen and it all adds to the rich volume of unique stories and context of each special day.

On this particular stroll the bride and groom crossed the path of another couple clearly intrigued by their polite walk in the gardens.

It was a funny crossing of paths, one old couple and one new one so-to-speak.

Documentary Photography Moments is a small series of images which I love for their character. If you are researching for a documentary photographer why not get in touch?

Pollockshields Burgh Hall Documentary Wedding – Documentary Wedding Photography Glasgow

A beautiful wedding at Pollockshields Burgh Hall which started in Glasgow’s West End.
This was not only a fantastic wedding with all sorts of surprises, but also a chance for me to adopt the Fuji Xpro 1 into my arsenal and use it where I am passionate most; documenting weddings.

Pollockshields Burgh Hall Documentary Wedding

2014 has seen quite a number of changes for me not to mention a new addition to my workflow as well as the introduction of Fuji equipment whilst doing documentary work.

The Fuji system is much smaller and allows me to get much closer to situations without necessarily being noticed and it is far more discreet. The Fuji X-Pro 1 is an excellent camera and the noise is quite acceptable at 6400 iso. The lenses are also fantastic from a wedding photographer’s point of view.

Below is a small sample of some of my work from the day and there is much more to come from this lovely Pollockshields Burgh Hall Documentary Wedding which started in Glasgow’s West End and then moved on to Pollockshields Burgh Hall for the ceremony and the rest of the fantastic and energetic day.

New Lanark Documentary Wedding – Claire and Joel – New Zealand-themed wedding

What a fantastic day at New Lanark Mill Hotel. It’s not every day you get a Hakka at a wedding to celebrate New Zealand style!

Bridal Preparation – A Glance

Edinburgh Wedding Photographer.
I love bridal prep, I always have and I always will. The greatest amount of anticipation ever combined with friends, family and joy = great opportunities to document wonderful work with the camera.
Often I will just stick to the smallest equipment I have and just get involved and quietly take it all in whilst I become part of the morning ( I think the earliest prep I ever did was 7:30!) but I love it.
This is a collection of images which capture a different kind of prep, all Black and White but a mix of really peaceful images and joy as well as some which are really genuine moments.

Overall there is a real contrast between motion and stillness; there is just so much that can happen and these are only a few in a small series from a recent wedding.
