Frequently Asked Questions
Alright! We like your photos so far but where can we see more of your work???
Good questions one and all! So if you just want to stalk our social media a bit more before sticking your head out of the anonymous foxhole you can head over to our instagram which probably has the best selection of pics outside of our website and our blog. It's definitely more regularly updated so if you want to check in on what we've been doing this very week then have a butchers me old china!

Besides wedding photography, what other types of photography do you offer?
We cover a range of other photographic services, including pets, PR, music, maternity, birth, birthdays, naming ceremonies, christenings, funerals, divorce parties and celebrations. We also run a photography club for children in Edinburgh called Firefly Camera Club across several schools weekly.
Where do you work?
We shoot a lot of our weddings in Edinburgh but we also work all across Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland and beyond. Contact us to discuss travelling that wee bit further afield for your wedding. Our new studio will be opening in Portobello next year!!!!!! (EXCITED)
What kind of photographs do you take?
We specialise in reportage, which is a candid style photography. This means that we capture honest moments from the secret smiles to the outright belly-laughs without the formality. We also mix in lots of what you might call creative fine art portraits because we love using the beauty of our couples and the natural beauty of their surroundings to make timeless photography for our couples.
Will you take group shots?
Yes, we are happy to take a group shots. We know these can be really important especially when you have lots of family and loved ones all in one place! We would discuss this when we meet and we'd ask for a list in advance to ensure enough time to take the more candid shots.
How much is the deposit?
We ask for 30% at time of booking and the remainder to be paid several weeks prior to the date of the ceremony.
Do we need to meet before the wedding?
We always recommend it because it allows us to get to know one another and to make you feel more comfortable on your big day. At the pre-wedding shoot we can discuss your wedding in more detail and it gives us a chance to take some awesome photos together. This makes things run far more smoothly on the day (for all of us!)
When can we see our pictures?
We aim to get a preview of your pictures online within a week of your wedding. Your fully edited photos will be ready to view within 12 weeks
What equipment do you use?
We both work with canon DSLRs with various lens sizes.
Are you insured?
Yes, we are both fully insured and can supply of policy upon request.
What should we wear to the pre-wedding shoot?
We encourage you to wear whatever you feel comfortable in, the pre-wedding shoot is a chance for you to get used to being in front of the camera and if you're worrying about whether your shoes are pinching or your shirt is too tight you most likely won't feel very relaxed.
Do you do wedding videos?
The answer is that we don't personally but we work with some of the best and the brightest in the business and are spoiled for choice if you want to organise a more comprehensive coverage option for you wedding day.
Do you eat human flesh?
No. I'm not, nor have I ever been a member of a Chilean football team. Or a zombie. Although.........
What will you the photographer wear on our wedding day?
Assuming there's no impending zombie apocalypse I'll probably wear a waistcoat with lots of nerdy badges accompanied by some kind of kilt.
Are all the weddings in your galleries from real weddings?
The answer to this is a resounding YES! I do not have any editorial or mock up work in any of my galleries on the website here or on my Instagram. There are a lot of cats on my instagram feed. #sorrynotsorry #initforthelulz
Do you require feeding on the big day?
Well we never insist on being fed but it's always nice to be fed as we are the longest hardest working vendors there apart from your poor belleagured bridesmaids and groomsmen who have no doubt had their nerves frayed to dust by your epic Zilla moments. Even just a sandwich and a coke is always gratefully appreciated. That said I do like Kobe beef and Civet coffee. Just putting that out there.
Can you recommend us any vendors?
Yes indeed we can! We've been working in and around the wedding industry for years and thankfully have built up a long list of good people, professional people to call on in the planning stages or even an emergency.
Can you help me plan certain sections of my wedding?
We as wedding photographers inevitably take on many roles and wear many hats during the big day and even in the run up to. We have some pretty good nuggets of wisdom after our own wedding last year to boot. But we like to bow to authority on occasion which is why if you need a barnraising brainstorming blasphemously good advice and planning session we can actually put you in touch with some of our award winning wedding planners. In our all day Hot Rocky package this is included absolutely free of charge. A 3 hour tea, biccies and colour coded post it notes extravaganza no less to help supercharge the planning process.
Do you bring weapons in case of a zombie apocalypse?
Yes. I also have a pdf which will show you the easiest way to arm yourselves in just about any wedding situation.
