Boda noun (Spanish) a.weddinglets do amazing things
My name is Sarah. I live in a town called Queensferry - just outside Edinburgh. It's on the waters edge of the Firth of Forth and we are nestled between the three famous bridges - I love it here
For many years, photography was on the 'back burner' as I worked full time around my family and wasn’t until I returned to education, Robert Gordon University, and got my BA Degree in Professional Photography, that I decided to move from hobby to a profession
3 Years At Uni
1 BA Degree
“Being a Wedding Photographer is the best job. True Fact.
Surrounded by warm-fuzzy-love, happiness, smiles, laughter, hugs, snazzy outfits and gorgeous gowns, flowers, THOSE SHOES, tear-worthy vows and speeches...who wouldn't' want to be around that all day? It's the most wonderful feeling being by your side all day taking those photographs you will share again and again with friends and family. Photographs that will be handed down the generations.
I do love other things too....”

WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND DO YOU TRAVEL?
Im based just outside Edinburgh in Queensferry.
I love driving and exploring new areas so if your wedding is further away, give me a shout and I'll give you a bespoke quote, it's not as expensive as you may think!
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
My style is mostly Documentary with some Fine Art for good measure.
I am inspired by fine art, documentary and editorial styles and adore Photographers such as Eve Arnold, Gregory Crewdson, Vivien Maier and William Eggleston. Google their work - it's amazing.
I try to keep my style modern and fresh without any strange or crazy poses and all images are edited to suit the aesthetics of your Wedding Day and venue.
I'm also very much up for a Wes Anderson style shoot! Bold, bright fun!
DO YOU SHOOT ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?
Engagement Shoots are included in my full day package.
If you are booking a half day or an elopement package they cost £150.
This is a 1 hour on-location shoot where we can get to know each other a bit better, practicing being in front of the camera (for those of you who maybe a little camera shy) and generally having fun!
Images are delivered in an online private gallery. Location is around Edinburgh and Lothians. If you would like your shoot further afield there will be a travel fee added, please ask for details.
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU?
Ooooh yes please! If you hire me for my full day package, a hot meal/drink are really appreciated - it helps re-charge the brain-batteries, gives the feet (and back) a deserved rest and time to re-focus on the evenings events ahead. If you book a second Photographer, they would appreciate a meal also. Meals are preferred to be taken away from the main dining room, you don’t need to fit me in to your seating plan.
Your evening photos will thank you for it!
ANY TIPS FOR THE DAY?
Brides - if you have bought in the matching dressing gowns for your bridesmaids to wear during the morning, try to steam them or hang them beforehand to get rid of the crease/fold marks - looks better in the photos.
Consider an UNPLUGGED ceremony. What is this? It means that guests are asked not to use any mobile phones or tablets etc during the ceremony, and in particular when the Bride is making her entrance and when the couple walk back down the aisle. It doesn't look good in your professional photos and can sometimes ruin a particular shot, which as we know, we can't go back to re-do. After the ceremony, you guests can go wild with their devices.
After all you want all your guests present in the moment, not watching you get married through a screen!
Consider a 'First Look' prior to the ceremony. This can be a first look between the Bride and the FOB or their other half, which is a magical and very emotional moment, perfect for photos!
Most importantly - take 15 minutes out, alone, together, away from everyone (even me!). You will need this time to relax and catch up with each other, I promise you! The day will go so fast and you will realise that you didn't even get to sit down with each other in a quiet area just to be together.
Drink, eat, dance, laugh, spin in circles, hug and have the most awesome day!
