Scotland wedding photographer, Chloe Jane Wedding Photography.
Hello! You guessed it, my name is Chloé and as you’re here, I’m very much hoping I may be the Scotland wedding photographer for you! I hope you will find many of your questions answered here, but I am always on hand to help you with any others that you may have. I’m based in Lochgoilhead, but happy to travel for my wonderful clients.
There’s quite a lot of information here, so if you just want to go over the basics and we can talk or message through the rest, that’s no problem at all!
Why Book Me?
I always want to stress to my couples that I adore what I do and get so excited over my work. Being part of a wedding day and having the opportunity to capture it from my perspective, is magical. I really would love to capture the true, romantic, fun, amazing day that you will spend with your favourite people in the whole world. Laid back, loved up couples seem to gravitate towards me, which is ideal!
I understand the importance of your wedding day and will always treat your wedding as something unique. I can shoot several weddings in the same venue, but you can guarantee with me, I’m never just running through the same old process. Your images will be different, they will be bespoke to you and your beautiful day. I get excited for different weddings, different vibes off my couples and shooting in different ways that suit them. For me, one size really doesn’t fit all when it comes to wedding photography.
Finding the balance of someone who’s work you love, but also someone you feel comfortable in front of is important. The last thing anyone wants is over choreographed, awkward wedding pictures. Your wedding photography is what allows you to reminisce about your wedding in the years to come. Remembering all the special moments and reliving the precious memories.
We’ll have fun, I’ll swoon at your couples shots and you will love, love, love your pictures! I’m a real people person, so you can guarantee I’ll put you at ease, and will be mingling in and capturing all the fun, love and real moments!
How I Work
You may have seen my images and hopefully liked what you have seen, but I would also like to give you an overview on what to expect when you book me as your Scotland wedding photographer.
When I’m shooting a wedding I like to keep things light hearted, fun and creative. This always puts people at ease, which results in the best images.
My style of wedding photography is a style that is unique to me. A wonderful mixture of documentary, with loved up quirky romance. I spend a large part of your wedding day keeping my head down and blurring in with the rest of your guests. My focus is on telling the story of your wedding day, documenting the real love, joy and all round wonderfulness around me.
The morning of the wedding is very much documentary when it comes to people, but I do really enjoy setting up some shots of your rings, dress, etc. Think rings balancing on pretty plants, the bridal bouquet leaning against a rustic tree, and you’ll be along the right track. I get odd looks, but the finished pictures are always totally worth it!
As a Scotland wedding photographer, one of my favourite aspects of wedding photography is the couples shots, and I will ask you to include these in your wedding timeline. Ideally we will do these twice, once after your group shots and then again some time after the wedding breakfast. I like to keep the couples shots as natural looking as possible, it’s all about capturing something special between the two of you. Timeless, elegant and authentic.. aka super dreamy.
If you are a little apprehensive about being photographed, please don’t worry. I’m very friendly, easy going and will do my best to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. If you’re nervous just message or call and we will talk – I get good feedback from people who don’t usually like having their picture taken 🙂 You might even enjoy yourself!
On your wedding day, I will be with you for 10 hours. This allows me to cover from towards the end of the morning preparations, right the way through to the first dance. Meaning I can capture all the main events of the day, and all the wonderful moments in-between. I like to start the day with capturing some beautiful shots of your rings, shoes and flowers. If there is a nice outdoor space, it can be lovely to find somewhere pretty to hang your beautiful wedding dress.
For the 10 hours that I am with you (if you opt for full day), the only time that I take a break is during the wedding breakfast. I take this opportunity to have a sit down and something to eat and drink, as it’s a long working day, even if I am having a total ball! But I will absolutely be back with you to capture the speeches!
As a result of so much shooting time, I have a lot of images to go through after the wedding. I do not cap the amount of images that my couples will receive. If I like the image, then you’ll receive it. Simples! The amount varies from wedding to wedding, but is usually between 600-750 images for a standard size wedding. Couples that put more time into their couples shots can routinely be at the higher end of the scale. Intimate weddings can have fewer images as there are simply not the same amount of people to photograph. This will of course have no impact on the amount of couples shots that you will receive.
When editing has been completed, I will email you a link to your personal online gallery. From here you will be able to view and download all your beautiful images. Your loved ones will be excited to see your wedding pictures, so you are able to share your link with them too if you would like. They will also be able to download images or order any high quality prints of their choosing. The beauty of the online gallery is that as soon as I have finished your editing, you will have access to your images, even if you’re out of the country. For couples who choose to have either wall art or an album, your online gallery gives you an option of favouriting your images. This means that I can easily see which images you would like me to use for your artwork.
