JM Photography & Videograpy, Glasgow, Scotland & North of England.

JM Photography & Video is a small, creative team of multi skilled Photographers and Videographers who work together all year round, guaranteeing you effective, courteous and friendly service. We have many years experience of providing professional wedding photography and video services to clients all over Scotland & North of England.

We understand how important it is for you to get the best pictures and video footage of your special day and you can trust us to get it right for you. We use only the latest, top class professional photography and video equipment and we always carry backups, so nothing will go wrong on the day. Our investment in the best equipment such as 4K Video Cameras gives you the best quality for your investment. Should the weather fail, we carry portable lighting for fabulous pictures inside your wedding venue.

We are experienced in dealing with very large weddings and very small weddings, both of which offer different challenges. We deliver great casual photography and video, as well as the classic formal shots. Most couples want both styles, and we will supply exactly what you ask for and what you will love.

Our prices are competitive and most couples book us for their photos and video; many photographers and videographers charge more for one service than we do for both.

From finding john to meeting him and having him photograph my wedding it was a pleasure. A kind man who put me at ease straight away (As I don't like getting my picture taken). I got to choose type of photography and how much of my day I wanted photographed also opting to get the ceremony recorded.
The price was more than reasonable and the album and DVD were with me so fast after the wedding.
Highly recommended

We cannot thank John enough for making our wedding photography & videography so relaxed and enjoyable. John invited us to his home so that we could meet and chat with him prior to our big day. He showed us some of the stunning albums he has created and video footage he has captured - we knew straight away that he was the man for the job.

Our guests commented on how lovely (and professional) John was as he made his way around the marquee capturing special video messages and footage from our guests. John really made us feel at ease and no request was too big for him. He was so patient with our indecisiveness and last minute requests!!

The photo and video package deal was excellent value and we are delighted with the stunning photos and incredible video that we will cherish forever. Thank you John, it was an absolute pleasure.

JM Photography & Video replied:
Hi Maria and Jodie, thank you for taking the time to post such a thoughtful and kind review.

I got married in September and I hate getting my photo taken! However from first meeting John he made me feel at ease. He showed me some of his previous work and let me decide how my days photography would go. I had prompt replies everytime I made contact about arrangements.
On the day John showed up right on time to photograph myself and my mother and bridesmaid getting ready, also the guests arriving. Excellent pictures during the ceremony and after without being to obvious which meant I felt relaxed.
I was so pleased when I received my album, perfect images and the whole package was more than reasonably priced.
I couldn't fault this photographer and would recommend him to everyone (infact I have) , not just for weddings but for any occasion. 10/10

John was great. From the first meeting with him he was very helpful recommending and suggesting shots and discussing the different kinds of albums available. The photos and videos are all very good quality and John was very professional during the day. We would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful experience contracting JM Photography and video for our wedding at Dalhousie castle.
We faced certain challenges planning a wedding hundreds of miles away from our home and JM Photography helped us greatly by being flexible in meeting us and making arrangement by email and phone so that we could organise the majority of the details from a distance saving stress that comes with travelling more than necessary.
From the beginning good advice was provided about the options available to us for our wedding and the pricing was clear and transparent with no nasty surprises.
Prior to the event all arrangements were made, checked and recorded in writing so that throughout the process we were confident with we were all on the same page with our requirements for the day and the time scales we had to work with.
On the day John was relaxed and friendly, he organised group shots well and was unobtrusive the rest of the day while photographing the casual photos throughout the day.
The photos arrived very promptly after the wedding and once our order had been placed for our physical album, this also arrived very promptly. We have already had comments that the quality of the album is the best that other people have ever seen and we are delighted with the finished product; especially since we were able to order multiple slightly different versions one for ourselves and another to gift to parents.
All in all we were very satisfied with the outcome and wouldn’t hestitate to recommend JM Photography for other events.

JM Photography & Video replied:
Hi Catriona & Troy, thank you so much for the time you spent posting such a carefully worded and detailed review. I appreciate the time this takes when you have such a busy schedule and I am most grateful as well as encouraged by your thoughtful feedback. Dalhousie Castle, Edinburgh, is a wonderful venue inside and out and any photographer would love the experience of this setting. The beautiful setting combined with such a lovely and undemanding couple, family & friends, to make a pleasure of the photography & video work. (PS please let your son know that it was he who took the close up photograph, with my camera, of Catriona’s brother!) With kind regards, John, www.jmphotography.video

John showed professionalism from the moment we first contacted him and throughout the whole wedding day. We now have some very good images to remember our special day. The pictures were delivered as promised and sooner than expected. They are of a great quality and the price was very reasonable. We shopped around before we decided to go with JM Photography and the value for money was by far the best. Thank you John for making our day extra special.

Liked straight off that no money had to change hands to confirm the booking , and there was a cut off date should I have changed my mind. John was friendly when I called him and discussed a few things, but in no way pushy. He gave me a free reign with any photos required , and like my whole wedding day was very relaxed .
He gave me over 500 photos to look at which I absolutely love. No they are not staged in any type of art form , and as I’m quite an understated person they are exactly what I wanted .
I am more than happy with my choice of photographer .

JM Photography & Video replied:
Hi Michelle & William, thank you for taking the time to post a review, it is greatly appreciated. I am so pleased that you love your photos; with the beautiful sunshine, the abundance of flowers in the hotel gardens and most important ,with so many nice people, the photography becomes such enjoyable work!

May I wish you all the best for 2019 ahead!

John was our photographer/videographer for our wedding at Comlongon Castle on 6th May 2018 and was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the photobook and the video which will provide us with fantastic memories. John obviously has a wealth of experience and this was evident through the range and style of shots, all at an extremely competitive price. We mainly communicated with John via email and he was never long in responding to one of our many queries; nothing seemed too much bother. We were both over the moon with the quality of the photobook and video of our special day, which will now forever be etched in our memories. JM Photography comes highly recommended from these newly weds!

JM Photography & Video replied:
Hi Tam & Kelly, I very much appreciate you taking the time to write a review about the quality of my photography & videography service. You had such a beautiful weather for your wedding day, with Comlongon Castle grounds being at their absolute best; taking these conditions, together with how easy it was to work with you and all of your guests, made my job straightforward and enjoyable.

John and his son arrived early at our wedding and managed to take some lovely photos of our guests before the start. They were fantastic throughout the day taking wonderful photos and a great video of the day. The dvd that was produced included the ceremony, speeches etc, some of our magicians amazing tricks and a round up of the day. They were wonderful to work with and after, sent us all the photos to decide what we would like. There was no pressure or time restraint on the album picking. Which is good as it took us a while to decide. Our album is amazing and we could not rate them highly enough. We would recommend them to anyone. Wonderful team and John was so lovely from first meeting him until the end of the process.

We were married on 15 September 2017 in Glasgow. John did a fantastic job photographing and videoing our very special day. He was, patient, understanding and totally professional in suggesting shots we had not thought about. He took time to ensure pictures were creative and inclusive. The end result was simply fantastic pictures and a video that will provide us with a lifetime memory of a brilliant day. John's follow up after event service has been equally impressive. We would absolutely recommend JM Photography.

We chose JM after seeing the first class work they did of my cousins wedding. Photos, video and the service on the day was all great. On our own day we couldn't have been happier. John knew exactly what he was doing and captured every detail perfectly, even the small things you don't notice. You couldn't ask for a more professional or friendly service. Our bridal party pictures were actually so good we really struggled to pick our favourites. Also the pictures of our guests were fantastic as you miss so much of people enjoying themselves on the day. As for the finished product we couldn't be happier and our friends and family are all so impressed, some commenting they wished they had something like our wedding book. All in all I'd rate JM Photography 10/10. From start to finish and even in the build up they really helped us have the day we wanted and pictures to remember.

JM Photography & Video replied:
Maurice and Louise, thank you for such kind feedback. What a super wedding day you had - and your wee boy, Jamie, what a great page boy he was! You were blessed with the October sunshine. Every happiness for the future, John, JM Photography & Video.

JM Photography & Video Q&A

JM Photography & Video Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

It's important to use the best equipment and to have the technique and composition skills to capture not just a few, but hundreds of great shots over the course of a wedding day. Where weddings are concerned, having sound experience and being able to create rapport with my clients and their guests, are all essential to get the results that all of my clients and their families and friends will love. Weddings are hard work and require patience and really good organisational and interpersonal skills from the photographer, so you can move things along with courtesy, capture what the clients want and stay in the background as much as possible.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

Details of the wedding venue(s), how many guests, times, what shots do the clients want, do they want formal and casual photos? Also, how do they feel about being in front of a camera-is there anything the photographer should look out for/avoid?

What do you love most about your job?

I like meeting people and working hard , swiftly and carefully to produce results that people will treasure for a lifetime.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have been a photographer all of my life and have covered weddings, portraiture, studio photography, events and magazine photoshoots. I am also a trained videographer with professional photo and video editing and production skills. Being experienced in portraiture and studio photography is a great asset for shooting weddings and allows you to spot a good shot and get it onto the memory card every time.

Why should our clients choose you?

We use top class equipment, with backups carried at all times to ensure nothing goes wrong on the day. Booking JM Photography & Video is your investment in experience, technique and professionalism. We place great store on courtesy, patience and truly delivering the results that you hope and perhaps dream about!
