Hi Hamish let’s start by finding a bit more about you and your passions.
I photograph weddings because I love getting to know a couple from start to finish, being involved and recording the story, and making precious seconds of life last forever. But all of that sounds well deep! I have so much fun photographing weddings! Capturing every one of those moments is exhilarating on the day, then afterwards feels so rewarding. It’s a pretty unique and thrilling job to do.
I’ve got three loves in my life, that’s jazz, travel and beer (I’ll have to apologise to my girlfriend after this). If I can combine all three that’s even better. I play sax, so jazz music’s the soundtrack to my life. I have one weekend off a year where me and my pals will go to Love Supreme Jazz festival, listen to biblical amounts of jazz and get very drunk. I brew beer by the barrel and host large drinking parties on the regular. Well, now I sound like an alcoholic, I’m not, I just like partying haha. Hence wedding photography!
So what would you say is your personal USP for your clientele?
All my couples see me as a friend on the day. I meet with all my couples before the wedding to go for a drink, have a laugh and get to know you. I have a very personal approach to capturing a wedding, I want to know every detail and feel like a guest at your day. I’ll love documenting your story, I’ll be emotionally attached, and I’ll record the moments and images that I know you’ll love. I’m unique in saying I feel like I photograph a best friend’s wedding every weekend!
I’m very passionate and enthusiastic. People say that comes across as soon as they meet me, and they reflect that energy when I’m working. But I always say, the images should speak for themselves. Hit up one of my most recent weddings on London HERE
