Hello! My name is Samantha and I am a photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Photography is more than just a hobby or career to me, it’s part of who I am. I was lucky to discover my passion for photography at a young age and I have been photographing and documenting life since I was around 15, and working professionally since 2010.
I really love natural photographs. I think this is always when people look their best – when they are just ‘being’ rather than forcing smiles or posing awkwardly. I’m happy to offer some direction if needed for the portrait session, as I know not everyone is used to being in front of a camera, but for the rest of the day I’ll just be in the background documenting the day as it happens. It is important to me to capture not only the visual aspects of the day but also the emotions and feelings that go with them.
Your wedding photographs are one of the few parts of the day that last long after the party. I like to imagine that people will look at the photographs I take on their wedding day for generations to come, and you will be able to share them with your children, grandchildren and beyond.
As well as photography I love spending time outdoors in nature, travelling, autumn, music, cats (well all animals really!), cooking and writing, amongst many other things. I also enjoy creating conceptual portraiture and travel photography, you can see some of my personal work by clicking here.
I am passionate about the environment and being as ethical as possible, you can read more about my Green Philosophy on this page.
