A little bit about me...

Hey there, I’m Lianne! 

I'm a wedding and love story photographer who enjoys silly dancing, romantic stories and pretty much any food involving rhubarb. I was born in Edinburgh back in 1990 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!

Fear not - I am such an awkward human as soon as I have a camera pointed at me! I know how you feel but hopefully you can tell how much I enjoy helping couples to feel comfortable and have fun with me behind the camera and them front and centre. This is at the very heart of my photography style and philosophy - I love connecting with couples (and people in general!) and being trusted to capture them at their natural best. No awkward posing, just you being you and interacting with each other!

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 love story/portrait session. I let you do you and only interject with direction here and there, just letting you soak up the moments and time together. 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, 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. I want to immerse myself in every wedding I shoot - photographing from the heart of it and not just as a spectator.
