Hola! * I’m Sarah!

I live in a wee town called South Queensferry – just outside Edinburgh.  It’s on the banks of the Forth and we are nestled between the three famous bridges – I love it here.  Smelling the sea air, listening to the fog horns on the boats and seeing the red rail bridge all lit up at night from our house. 
It’s a very special place.

For many years, photography was on the back burner as I worked full-time around my family  and wasn’t until I returned to eduction, Robert Gordon University/Edinburgh College, that I decided to move from hobby to a professional job.
3 years at university
2 main industry awards
1 BA  Degree in Professional Photography

MY WHY

Why do I do what I do?  I worked for over 20 years before giving up full time employment to be full time self employed and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done.  

I just wish I’d done it earlier in my life!  

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.
