Ian Hamilton

Documentary Wedding Photographer and Storyteller

What's my style of photography?


I like to think of it as storytelling - a blend of unobtrusive documentary photography (or wedding photo-journalism) combined with a few formal photographs.


If you look through my images you'll get a really good idea of what I do, but that's not the whole story.

Let me explain .......

I'm there to capture the memories on your first day as a married couple.

I'll get the photos of your parents and grandparents.

But what I do best is to capture your day by being as unobtrusive as possible.

Photographing the events and emotions as the day unfolds.

Every wedding is unique, and there’s a different story to be told every time.

I love it when I get compliments from guests saying that they'd barely noticed me through the day.


Wherever possible I like to meet my couples before their big day.


It gives me a chance to find out what makes you tick as a couple.


It gives you the chance to get to know me and so feel more comfortable on the wedding day itself.

Trust me, when you’re relaxed in front of the camera it really shows - the photos are so much better!


Professional documentary wedding photography is not about taking “snaps”!


It’s all about observation, anticipation and discretion.

The ability to capture special moments that bring back memories for years to come.

The process of booking me is very simple.

There's a deposit of £300 to book your wedding, regardless of the coverage that you choose.

The balance is due one month before your wedding.
