Capturing Life's Greatest Moments.

Hi! I'm Daniel a Glasgow based wedding, family and event  photographer. one of the favourite  parts of my job is being able to share in other people's joy. Capturing people enjoying the best times of their lives, from newborn babies, christenings, milestone birthdays, family events and weddings. 

I just love photographing those once in a lifetime moments, documenting life's events and the people who were there to share it. 

If you are anything like me then you probably feel a little uncomfortable in front of the camera and that is why my style is very candid and not overly posed. I prefer to create situations for natural looking photographs and focus on the connections people have with each other.  My sessions are always relaxed and full of good chat as we create some great images together.

Relaxed, candid and creative.

I’ve always enjoyed taking photographs of people, but it wasn’t until I started shooting weddings that I truly found my passion. I honed my skills working for some of the best wedding photographers in Glasgow, in some of the most prestigious Scottish wedding venues before venturing out on my own.

I like to work closely with my couples to make sure I document all the moments of their day and people who are important to them. I stay away from overly staged and posed photographs for the most part and instead capture the natural aesthetic of your wedding day, but don't worry I will still get all those family group shots and beautiful couples portraits as well.

When I first started out many years ago my speciality was family photography.  Documenting newborn babies from their first few days of  life all the way through to those teenage years and beyond.

I like to make sure each photoshoot is a fun and stress-free experience, enabling me to capture each moment of you and your family together.

All my shoots are either on location on in your home and I find it is easier to have a purpose to your shoot as this helps to help keep the kids engaged and happy.

It can be anything from a simple walk or bug hunt in the woods to baking some cupcakes at home.

Event Photography

Party, Corporate Events, Christening & Naming Ceremonies.

Weddings are not the only parties that I get asked to photograph. My documentary approach is perfect to capture all the fun, games and excitement of your other events as well. From 1st to 100th birthday parties, engagement parties, wedding anniversaries, retirement parties and any other number of special occasions or events. You get the same attention to detail as my weddings do, the emotions, details and atmosphere all captured to reflect your incredible event.
