East Lothian based wedding photographer Grahame Smith LMPA

Hi, thanks for checking what we're all about at GWS. We are a family business, run by me (Grahame) my wife Allison, and often assisted by daughter Annie.

We run a lovely studio in Dunbar, East Lothian in the grounds of the fabulous East Links Family Park. We are full time, insured, trained and qualified so we can offer the best service to every client that we meet - portraits or weddings.

Grahame is qualified with the Master Photographers Association as an Associate, and the studio has won many awards - every photographer seems to boast being published, award winning and all that, and that's fine.
As well as competing (to hone our skills) in monthly critiques we have won a few big proper awards.

We never sit back and say we are good enough, every day is a school day and we strive to shoot better pictures with every session.

Our dog photography has been called "exquisite" and that has been a real growth area for us in 2018, we love doggy shoots.
But we still do amazing wedding work, and creative studio portraits.

But you're probably looking on here to check out a wedding or portrait photographer, so let me go on about that for a bit...

Choosing a photographer is more than just choosing the guy with the camera.
On your wedding day, most vendors turn up, do their job over an hour or so and leave you to get on with your day.
A good professional photographer is with you from early in the morning until possibly late at night.
Being there for you, helping to make every section of the day run as smoothly as possible, just as you’d imagined it would.
I believe I have built a solid reputation on being a friend on the day, as much as being a great photographer.
The duties performed by GWS over the years at weddings go way beyond what is in the remit of the average photographer...
...but GWS Photography aren’t your average Wedding Photographers.

I'm always available to call or email. I can be reached on the studio mobile on 07415 878244. Chances are if you email me at anytime you'll get a reply fairly soon afterwards... quite often I'll be up in the wee hours... working away on somebody's portfolio :)

You'll see lots of photographers mention similar things as above, but one thing we can promise you is we have experience and devotion to this trade. Every portrait, wedding and even doggy shoot is a pleasure to do - and a learning experience.
We go through a process after every shoot... making notes on how people reacted to the day - not just the photography - but the whole experience, and I try to find way that I can help improve the day with the service I offer.

So, now you're interested... where do you find us so you can come visit ?
Our address is...

Dunbar, EH42 1XF

If you're using a sat nav, it's best to punch in East Links Family Park, as the post code will take you slightly off site, and we've only been here since August 2016, so the inter-web will take a while to realise we're here now.

If you're coming by car from the Edinburgh side, turn off at the Beltonford roundabout and head along the road until you see the signs for East Links Family Park.
Here's a few pics to help you...
