Hi, I'm Ricky, I'm a destination wedding Photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

I absolutely love what I do as I have been able to turn my passion into a full-time business. I've been taking photos for 15 years and discovered my love for portrait photography when my kids arrived. Photographing them is a joy as it's all real emotion, this is why I love shooting weddings. I'm in my 3rd wedding season now and I feel so fortunate to have a job that I care so much about and love.

So a little about me... Before I was a wedding photographer I owned a coffee shop in the centre of Edinburgh. I love a good South Australian Shiraz, I can make a mean flat white and a cracking Eggs Benny. I love capturing beautiful light and being on the Greek islands with my family in summer. By my side is my amazing Greek wife, Lia and our two gorgeous daughters, Elle & Sienna. Three women in the house with that fiery Mediterranean temper...Yes, it gets crazy! 

So my approach to weddings. Well, I am a creative documentary wedding photographer so this means I tell your story in the most natural and relaxed way. Basically speaking, I get creative from the sidelines, leaving you to enjoy each other and have fun on the day! My aim is to capture your personalities and the love you have for each other, documenting all those real and unstaged moments that are so special to you. I always strive to produce art that surpasses expectations, pouring all my energy and soul into every wedding so that I am able to deliver a set of compelling and visually impacting images to all my couples that even a complete stranger can connect with.

I  have a real passion for travelling and always enjoy photographing weddings in different cultures, something I've been lucky enough to make a big part of my photography business. I've shot weddings in numerous Greek Islands, New York CityItaly, Africa, Tenerife and Canada with many more exciting destinations to come!

Whether you are getting married at home or abroad, I would love to hear from you! Drop me an email so we can start planning your wedding photography!
