A little bit about me...

Hey there, I’m Lianne! 

I'm a wedding and love story photographer (aka - pro third wheel) who enjoys silly dancing, romantic stories and pretty much any food involving rhubarb. I was born in Edinburgh and have lived here my whole life. I absolutely love living in Scotland and exploring the highlands as well as venturing to new cities & places.

I took up photography in 2012 after graduating with a music degree and realising that there was something about photographing people that drew me in. That summer I photographed my first wedding and instantly knew that photographing loved-up couples and their nearest & dearest was what I wanted to do. 

Some other things I love are: cooking, live music, comedy and theatre (recommendations welcome!), reading, nice stationary, the Red Door Gallery in Edinburgh, Oliver Bonas candles, Scottish bands who sing in their home accents, the goosebump-inducing harmonies of The Staves and secret/surprise dates with my awesome other half, Matt (who is also in the wedding industry - check out the Sleekit Beasties if you're on the hunt for a fabulous band!).

Camera shy? ME TOO!

Imagine having "awkward human as soon as I have a camera pointed at me" in common with your photographer?! I usually end up dancing like a dafty or awkwardly giggling. It's a curse, I know. But the plus side of it is that I know how most of my couples feel about being photographed - so hopefully you can tell how much I enjoy helping couples to feel comfortable and to have fun with me behind the camera and them front and centre. I like my couple portraits to sit in that sweet spot right in the middle of being choreographed and candid. I’ll set people up and then they’ll do all the magic by simply being their lovely wee selves - that's where the real emotion and honesty comes from, and also when I feel most comfortable not only in front of a camera but also behind mine - win/win!

What I do & how I do it...

Weddings, Love Stories & Portraits

My style & approach

The very heart and soul of my work is YOU and everything you share, whether it's on your wedding day or during a couple portrait session. I give gentle direction here and there to keep you in the best type of light and the best spot in a frame, but aside from that it’s all about you doing what feels lovely and comfortable (I would say “normal”, but let’s be real - there’s nothing normal about having a professional photographer take your photograph!). I'll never make you do something that just doesn't feel like you.

As a wedding photographer, I want to create images that you will look back on over the years and be brought right back into those moments that made your wedding day everything you wanted it to be. My philosophy is that I am there to capture things as they happen and capture them honestly, to be there with you and your loved ones but never in your way, to tell your story in the most organic and creative way I can.
