UPDATE JUNE 2024


Thanks for visiting my website! I'm currently working and travelling in New Zealand for a year.

I will be in the UK from June 4th - July 4th 2024 to do a series of engagements, family and graduation shoots.

I will return to the UK full time from May 2025.

I have very limited space left for any new enquiries for UK work in 2024, so don't hesitate if you're enquiring about a date in the above period!

St Andrews Graduation Photography


I love graduation season. It's genuinely a pleasure to come back year after year to create some top class images with my graduate clients, all while revisiting my favourite spots in St Andrews.


Graduation 2024 is fully booked,

but my books are now open for Graduation 2025.

The following information is for Graduation 2025!


There are plenty of photographers advertising graduation shoots - why should you book me?


  • I'm a fully insured, registered business, and I frequently work for the university itself. Full legal accountability, full public liability insurance - I take my responsibility as your photographer seriously. My photography is my pride and joy, and my clients feel that sense during the shoot!


  • You book me personally, not an agency or group - it’s me who turns up on the day, and every photo you see here on my website was taken by me, with gear I own - meaning I can recreate it for you.


  • Your graduation is a special day - investing in the right session with the right photographer is really important in crafting a smooth, enjoyable experience. I'm incredibly familiar with the St Andrews graduation schedule, so I can help guide and plan your entire day, not just the photography (I graduated myself in 2023!).


  • As of July 2024, I'll be approaching my 200th grad shoot - I know St Andrews like the back of my hand, and I can consistently and efficiently produce the gorgeous photos you're looking for.


  • You get every good photograph I take - there’s no fixed limit, I keep and edit every good photo, and deliver every good photo to you. There's no cut-off number for any of my packages.


  • I book sessions with deliberate time left in between your session and my next session. If your family takes a little bit longer to walk to a second location, your ceremony runs late, or if you bump into a friend and we want to extend by five minutes to take photos with them, I've already allowed time for it.


  • I offer payment plans - I recognise, having been part of the St Andrews student community, that we're not all on an equal financial footing. I want everyone to have access to beautiful graduation photos, regardless of their financial background. Get in touch if you'd like to talk about ways we can make these sessions affordable for you.

Investment


Maybe you're at this point on the page, you like my photos, but you've noticed the prices are higher than other photographers you've seen advertising their services. Maybe you've never invested that amount of money in a photo session - maybe you've never had professional photos taken at all, so you're not sure what to expect, and you're wondering if you should go with a less expensive option since it's your first time.


I know that these shoots are significant investments - if you want to have a chat about prices, payment plans, or the session in general - my inbox is always open.



Don't just take my word for it:

As reflected by my prices, these are premium shoots that I pour 110% of myself into.


As such, I can only take on a limited number of clients each year.
