So happy we had Douglas to capture our special day. We couldn't of asked for a nicer person and he had a great rapport with friends and family who only had good things to say about him. The number of photos we came out with was very generous and especially impressive as he was super discreet and caught lovely natural images which have received a lot of compliments. Thank you douglas! More...

From the minute Douglas appeared my nerves about photos been taken was gone. To be honest half the time you wouldn't of noticed he was there and the pictures he got were perfect. Our family loved to sit and chat with him throughout the day. Hes a upbeat fun chatty guy who I would definitely recommend. He captured all the speacil moments perfectly. More...

Douglas was our photographer for our wedding day at North Queensferry. He was amazing so professional and friendly. He listened to what we wanted and we were not even aware of him during the day snapping away. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good and competitive priced photographer. Thanks again Joanne and Peter. Can't wait to see all the photos x More...

I recently attended a wedding at which Douglas was the photographer. As an actor and commercial model, I have my photo taken a lot, so I am always intrigued when I meet photographers that I do not know. He is such an affable person and just SO nice that it was a pleasure watching him bring out the best in people because they felt at ease with him - and if you are someone, or know someone who is uncomfortable having their photo taken, you will be aware that people tend to freeze when they see a camera. This doesn't happen with Douglas because he is kind and warm, but also hugely discreet. The wedding was intimate; beautiful and relaxed and Douglas captured every moment for the couple to look back on. He even took a photograph of every guest with the bride and groom, which is something I will treasure. I attended another wedding the following weekend at which we were not allowed to take our own photographs, so I was very disappointed that only the family were photographed with the bride and groom. Honestly; book your wedding photographs with #DouglasCairnsPhotography: you will be thrilled with the natural result. More...

Douglas has just done a fantastic job of my wedding last weekend at Norwood Hall, Aberdeen. He was so easy to work with. He is so discreet when taking the photos most of the time I didn’t even see him which gives you relaxed natural photos. I hate getting my photo taken but can honestly say Douglas made my day so easy and the photos are fantastic. I couldn’t have asked for better pics and the price was a fraction of other photographers. Thanks for making memories of my wedding day perfect x More...

We had a unique wedding that was themed, Douglas was fully aware of this and made sure that all our of requirements and touches were included in the photography.

He was a joy to work with, made sure that we were both at ease throughout the day and ensured that we covered all the images that we wanted on the day.

As always there are changes on the day, which Douglas reacted to without any delay and was very supportive and understanding as well. The standard of images provided very of a very high standard and i'm delighted with the final images provided.

Thanks again.

Q&A

For me it's being passionate about what i do!
I think that a good photographer loves what they do, and you can see it when you talk with them. It’s more than just a business. It’s something that’s a part of them and that they love doing.

Finding a photographer that has a true passion for what they do will almost always translate into beautiful images that you’ll cherish for years to come.

For me it's getting to know the client and fully understanding the brief so:

What is the emotion, feeling or vibe you want to portray in these images? Is it fun, playful, mysterious, cute, serious etc...?
Whats your budget ?
Seems strange but what are you expecting from your photographer?

What started out as a hobby eventually became a career. That small camera that fit in my pocket expanded into a storage room full of backdrops, lighting equipment and rarely used gear. I now own my own photography business and live and breathe photography every day of the year. And you know what? I still enjoy it. Here is why I enjoy photography:

I enjoy photography because it has given me the opportunity to share in people’s most special moments on a regular basis, it has introduced me to many people who I now call friends and it enables me to work anytime, anywhere and capture moments in my own life that I don’t want to forget.

I picked up my first camera, taking photos in my free time and learning about image composition and camera settings it was not in my mind that this would one day be my living.

I’ve never stopped learning but like my own particular style but always paying attention to current trends and evolving to meet the changes. It wasn’t long before I took the plunge and invested in some camera equipment, which to the horror of my wife, I wanted to work with the best, just like her obsession with a certain type of handbags !

I started with a Canon 450D and quickly upgraded to a 750D and added to my collection with a Canon 7D. The difference in the settings it was a world away from what I had before and I love it to this day, I got accessories such as lens and backgrounds anything the pros have I wanted. Coupled with my interest in taking images I felt it was important to understand the post processing. I learned about editing, Lightroom and everything to improve the quality and allow me to be more creative. If I am being totally honest I have loved every second and I would have continued in the same way if this had stayed just a hobby, an expensive hobby I would admit !

Why choose me over the HUNDREDS other photographers in the area? That's definitely a fair question.

Well, for one thing, I hope you like my work.

I hope that you like my ability to create unique photos for my clients on their special day, not just traditional, pretty images, but a style that suits your venue, capturing those candid moments, that sparkle showing your own personalities. I love being able to adjust to the roller coaster of the particular moment and then take the right photos, to ensure it's captured in a candid, but creative and memorable way. I'm definately not rigid in my approach to taking photos of YOUR day or specific requirements. I have standards, but I'm always keeping my client in mind.

I provide a variety of packages tailored to the needs of the client, all of the below include a pre wedding consultation and a online gallery to view, share and download all edited images taken on the special day.
