How much does a Dunglass Estate wedding photographer cost?

Why should I choose you as my photographer?
We have been photographing couples since 2006 and have photographed and filmed almost 500 weddings. We are a highly-rated photographer on Google reviews. Our extensive photographer experience culminated in being awarded Best Photographer in Scotland South East at the 2020 Scottish Wedding Awards. We are also honoured to be the recommended photographer at many of the very best venues in Edinburgh and Scotland, including being a recommended photographer for Dunglass Estate. We’re honoured to be trusted by our fellow professionals to consistently provide the very best photos and service.
Do you have insurance?
Of course. We are fully insured, with public liability insurance, professional indemnity insurance and equipment insurance. We are also authorised and insured for flying our drone, offering you a totally unique perspective for photos and video. We also advise that you take out comprehensive wedding insurance to cover you for all eventualities.
Why do you provide two photographers?
Because two photographers offer more coverage of your wedding and a single photographer cannot be in two places at the same time. For example, while Claire photographs the girl’s preparations at Sea View House, Jonathon can photograph the boys getting ready at the cottages. Two photographers also offer optimum coverage of those once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunities; when you are announced as newly-weds and share that wonderful first kiss, Jonathon photographs you kissing and embracing while Claire photographs your family and guest reactions. While Jonathon takes you away for a few newly-wed photos, Claire stays with your family and guests and takes candid photos. Two photographers are not always necessary or mandatory, however, if you want the best coverage we recommend our wedding photography packages with two photographers.
How are our photos delivered?
We deliver your photos via digital download and password-protected web gallery. Downloading is better than a USB drive or disk for many reasons; downloading photos is faster than posting a USB drive; you can share a download link with family and friends at no extra cost to you; your devices (iPad, notebook, phone etc.) do not have a USB port; we keep your downland link active for at least a year (usually much longer, typically years) providing you with a great backup option at no extra cost to you. Your web gallery enables viewing from any device and you can also order gallery-quality prints and wall art directly from your gallery.
What is the delivery time for photos?
Delivery times for wedding photos can vary between a few days to 4 weeks. As our year progresses our delivery times can vary because we are always in-demand and never outsource any of our editing.
Where can I find out more information about your services?
We offer a lot of useful information on our comprehensive guide to hiring a photographer. Also, be sure to take a peek at our wedding photo gallery for examples of our real wedding photos.
