I bet you’re worried about spending a large sum of money on wedding photographs and you have no idea how this person works!!
You want a photographer who “gets you”, and understands what your wedding is all about. Someone who takes natural photographs that do not look posed (even though they might be), someone who is friendly and polite with your family and friends - especially when they take photographs too, and someone who is super quick with the family group photographs - and delivers all your wedding photographs within 4 weeks after the wedding!
Am I on the right track?
My name’s Nadin. I am an Edinburgh based wedding photographer, and I’m pretty sure I can tick all of these boxes for you!
By the way - you pronounce my name just like you would “Nadine - with the “e” at the end.
When we meet, you might wonder who this tea loving lady is. I have this funny Scottish accent, sounding like I’m from the Highlands, but I’m actually German! I am even accused of having a sense of humour… it must have rubbed off on me - after living in Scotland for over 18 years!
I believe great photographs come from a good relationship with your photographer. Someone who helps you feel at ease, make you giggle, and most importantly make look amazing and happy in your photographs!
My husband Mo and I had been friends for about two years, we spent a lot of time together drinking coffee and chasing the sunset around Edinburgh, standing in the rain on the Salisbury Crags in Edinburgh taking photos of the fireworks over the castle, and having lots of BBQs on the beach.
One day we drove all the way to Mallaig on the west coast just to have a burger at sunset. It's still one of my favourite non-dates we enjoyed.
Over the years, we perfected our "burger on the beach" routine and started going on holiday together, as pals!! And the last one of those "friends on holiday" - we came back as a couple.
Getting married was just not on my RADAR, like A.T. A.L.L.! I had been married before and I was in no rush to walk down the aisle any time soon. I simply enjoyed taking photographs of my couples and their big day, but deep inside, I was hoping that one day I might wear a ring again.
So it came as a total surprise to me when one day he got down on one knee, asking me THAT question!! He had found a shell on my favourite beach on the Isle of Harris. And with that shell, he popped the question. And the shell fitted perfectly!!
Have a look at our video below.
Photographer, story-teller, coffee-lover, cat person, definitely-not-a-morning person. Helicopter pilot in my dreams.
Photographer, video story-teller, drone pilot, loves exploring the Scottish Highlands & Islands, night owl.
Chubby cheeks, sloth, cuddly thing, his name is pronounced like "Pizza" but with an "M".
Editor in chief. Anytime I write for my website, she walks all over my keyboard. Purry thing. Unfortunately a morning-person.
Both Mo and I love traveling and spending time preferably in warm climates. Up until a couple of years ago, my warmest experience had been Spain when I walked the 500 miles across the North of Spain - the "Camino de Santiago". That took me six weeks in the summer sunshine in 2010, but that's another story!
Mo was asked in 2016 to take a video for one of his clients who owns a big yacht. The owner of the yacht required a video and also photographs to promote his yacht to potential new clients. The yacht happened to be in Tenerife and we were asked to join the crew in November 2016 for a week's sailing around the Canaries.
Wow. What a week!!! It was so awesome to live on-board, enjoy yachting / sailing life (after my initial sea sickness) and visit the different marinas in Tenerife and La Gomera, west of Tenerife. We were then asked back in January 2017 to produce a film and photographs for a different sailing company, based in Tenerife too. Another week on board - hell yeah!! Another week of winter sunshine! See the two videos below.
In August 2017, we photographed a wedding in Tuscany - at 38 degrees! Such an awesome experience. More of that in the future!!
At the moment, we are debating our honeymoon destination and a few locations are in the pot.
