About Weddings by Cate

Fringe Exhibition 2011

I love pictures and I love people. Having worked full time as a photojournalist for 8 years, telling peoples' stories in pictures is my speciality. My style is documentary, meaning that I capture the important moments, as well as the little unplanned ones as they unfold on your wedding day.

Experienced in getting great shots for tight deadlines, I spend time with you as the couple to achieve beautiful 'Just Married' shots, but don't keep you from your guests for long. Your wedding day is for you to enjoy.

I am based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and am happy to travel.
