About Weddings by Cate

Fringe Exhibition 2011
I love pictures and I love people, and people are at their happiest at a wedding. When else do you, as a couple, have all your family and friends in one place? I'm there to tell the story of your day in pictures; the key moments and the little unplanned ones as they unfold on your day.

I've been a photographer of people since I left Art School; full time for newspapers for six years and freelance for the last ten. What a joy and a privilege it is to capture weddings. 
I am based in Aberdour across the water from Edinburgh in Scotland, and am very happy to travel to your special day.
