How do you photograph weddings?
I’m a lover of all things candid and documentary, that’s my vibe. I love being by your side throughout the day, helping when you need me and disappearing into the background when you don't. During your couple portraits, I’ll take a very relaxed approach. I much prefer to guide you into a ‘pose’ that feel comfortable and natural, rather than forcing you into awkward situations. Being in the moment is much more emotive and valuable for creating lasting memories.
What kind of packages do you offer?
I offer a full day, half day and bespoke option. Each can be tailored to you so that you get the most from your day.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I live in Aberdeenshire with my husband Dennis and puppy Olive, but I travel all over Scotland. Give me an adventure any day!
Do you offer a pre-wedding session?
I work with a lot of self-confessed “camera shy” couples, so I offer a complimentary pre-wedding session with any booking greater than 5 hours. These sessions, also known as couple sessions, give us time to meet, give you the opportunity to experience being in front of the camera, have a laugh, and make sure that when your big day comes, we have a whole load of fun. You’ll receive all the images via an online gallery a few weeks later - they’re perfect for wedding invites! If your package doesn’t include a pre-wedding session and you’d like one, feel free to get in touch and we can get you booked in.
Scott photographed our wedding in August and was everything you would want in a wedding photographer. He was great at directing everyone for family shots and giving us some gentle direction for the couple shots, which made us feel very natural and comfortable in front of the camera. He did a fantastic job of discreetly capturing lots of important candid moments without the camera ever feeling intrusive. There was great communication in the run up to the wedding, and he and was always looking to make things work best for us. We really enjoyed having Scott at our wedding and most importantly, the photos are truly beautiful.
Scott is one of the most genuinely lovely people ever. From the moment we met (actually, from speaking via email), I knew Scott would be the perfect fit for our wedding photography. He photographed our Winter wedding and I have nothing but positive things to say about him . Scott takes a genuine interest in your day, is on hand to help in any way he can and as he says on his website 'loves love!' Scott captured so many special moments during our day - both candid and posed - which we are so grateful for. He spoke to guests, make them feel comfortable being photographed and took part in the fun of the day. Scott worked so quickly to get our full gallery to us within such a short space of time. He even spent extra time with us to make sure no moment was missed in the evening which was much appreciated. I want Scott to be on hand to capture any and all future life events! If you are in any doubt, book Scott and don't look back. Thank you Scott Arlow Photography.
We had a fantastic shooting experience with Scott. In the hour we spent together he made us feel like natural, happy, confident models in front of the camera and the photos that came out were beautiful (: It wasn't just the photoshoot itself that he made special. Right from the onset of our contacting him, he made the effort to find out what sort of scenery we had in mind, what kind of photos we were hoping for, what music we liked etc and even suggested nice places for us to chill/eat at near the photoshoot location once we had decided on one (after the many stunning suggestions he gave). On the day itself, Scott went above and beyond to make our photoshoot enjoyable & comfortable - apart from sharing some great banter he also played our favourite music, brought a large throw for us to sit on, carried our bags, and even brought champagne for us to pop for some nice photos at the end! The photo gallery we received was beautiful and even came with a little slideshow, which we have watched over and over again. Did I mention we received it within 24 hours?! All in all a 5-star experience and we would definitely recommend Scott’s photography services to all (:
If I could carry Scott in my pocket 24/7 so that he could be on standby to capture any special moment, I would!!! I highly recommend Scott for anyone who is looking for a photographer for any reason! I have so many positive things to say - he’s extremely accommodating, polite, talented and just a bundle of joy really! Rhu and I are so awkward to photograph because we never know how to pose or act, but everything was so natural with Scott and we are over the moon with our photos.”
Scott was brilliant! He listened to what we wanted and was open to any ideas. Scott is very non-judgemental and so easy to be around. Our pictures turned out great ans I’m so proud to show them off to everyone and can’t wait to display them on my wall. Would highly recommend!
