About Rhiannon

 

Hi and thanks for stopping by!

I’m Rhiannon: mum, wife, dog owner and professional photographer based in Glasgow, Scotland (but more than willing to travel!)

I live in Finnieston with my husband Paul, our daughter Charly and our rescue dog, Dexter. I was born and bred in Winnipeg Canada, but moved to Glasgow with my (Scottish) husband back in 2015 and have completely fallen in love with this country.

Our family is more than a little bit travel-obsessed! Paul & I have visited 17 countries in our five years together, and our list of “must-see” places is always growing. When I say I’m more than willing to travel I mean it- I’ve shot weddings in Ireland, Canada and as far as the Caribbean and I hope to add more countries to that list very soon.

I couldn’t live without coffee, music or my camera and am rarely found without all three on me at any given time.

I must confess that I vastly prefer this side of the camera, and I really do sympathize with those who don’t love having their picture taken. I am an easy going, fun-loving person and I wear my heart on my sleeve. (Disclaimer: if you choose me to photograph your wedding, there’s a good chance I may tear up a bit at some point in the day).

Things I love: old horror movies, craft beer, dogs, exploring new places, biographies, and pretty much all things vintage.

Things I don’t love: olives, mornings and running (sure it’s good for you, but at what cost?)

 

Some Credentials (just in case you’re wondering!)

It probably sounds cliche, but I have loved photography and film for as long as I can remember and since I was about eight years old I always had a camera on hand. I didn’t just start this business on a whim though, I did a LOT of studying & training to get to where I am today!

I studied photography, film and media production in University and left with a degree in Journalism which really helped me to develop my documentary style. I started working alongside other talented photographers and videographers in 2008 and as my skillset and portfolio grew so did my own business! I have now been photographing & filming weddings, babies and families professionally for a decade across Scotland, the UK and Canada.

Enough about me though- what can I do for you?

If you’re looking for a photographer with a friendly, relaxed approach and a natural, reportage style you have come to the right place! I specialize in two areas: natural newborn & family photography in Glasgow and central Scotland and documentary wedding photography in Scotland, the UK and abroad.

Looking for a documentary wedding photographer in Scotland or abroad? I focus on capturing candid, genuine moments as they happen, keeping posed shots to a minimum and instead letting you spend more of your day with your family and friends. I work hard to document every moment of your day from behind the scenes, from the big milestones to the small details and everything in between. I’m known for my relaxed, friendly approach and easy going attitude and for making even the most shy of couples feel comfortable in front of my camera. I have ten years of experience as a documentary wedding photographer in Scotland, the UK and North America and I have the skills to calmly adapt to anything that might happen on your day.  If this sounds like what you’re looking for I’d love for you to tell me some more about your day!

In search of a natural newborn or family photographer in Glasgow or central Scotland? I offer relaxed family photography sessions in Glasgow and Scotland, specializing in lifestyle newborn photography, outdoor & lifestyle family photography and cake smash photography in Glasgow. My portrait photography sessions are fun and relaxed, with a focus on capturing real moments, interactions and personalities. Posing is kept to a minimum, making for a comfortable and enjoyable session for both you and your wee ones whether we are in your home, outdoors or in my cozy West End Glasgow photography studio. For more information please get in touch!

All things radiant- couple/ backdrop/ light. Just a quick screen grab from yesterday's wedding... sneak peek film coming soon!
