"My husband hates his photo taken but Graeme made him feel calm and he started to get into the posing spirit. My photos are perfect and the album I have shown everyone I can think of so far. The USB you get is great for families. the whole day and the service before and after you cant get any better."
Grahame and his daughter were wonderful in the run up to our wedding and on the actual day. They worked with us to give us the photos we wanted but kept it very relaxed and didnt make us disappear for hours on end meaning we could enjoy our day.
They were also fabulous with our wee boy(1.5)who was slightly overwhelmed on the day and spent most of it clinging to daddy or mummy they never made an issue of it and very much included him or worked round him which was super Fabulous photographer and would highly recommend.
Grahame was a brilliant photographer He was so friendly and really put us at ease throughout the day. His Photos were incredible and he captured all our special moments. We have already recommended him to others and would definitely us him again Thank you so much.
We really enjoyed working with GWS. From booking yourselves right up until now (still havent picked our photos) you have been so easy to work with and have really understood what we were looking for in our wedding photos. It was good how you knew the venue so well so knew exactly where would be good for certain photos.
"As the type of person who hates getting photo taken I can honestly say graham made me feel so at ease and comfortable throughout the whole day. Every single special moment was caught for us to cherish forever. The though and effort put into the end result had us both speechless. We could not have wished for more. Thank you so much!"
"I just wanted to thank you for our amazing wedding photos, I can't stop looking at them. I love every single one and everyone who has seen them has said the same.
I can't explain in words how I actually feel about them, this face sums it up quite well 😍 I don't know if all brides feel the same way about their own photos but I actually feel that ours are the best iv ever seen 🙊😁 I love love love every single one ☺️
Thank you again for being an amazing photographer and capturing our day perfectly."
"Grahame is a very talented photographer and put us completely at ease. I couldnt have loved the photos anymore they are beautiful I could tell Grahame wanted them to be perfect too and guided us through the day. Grahame felt like part of the family at our wedding Im glad he was there to share it with us."
So glad I accidently came accross this website. I had been googling each photographer we had looked at to get their real photos up. Noticed their portfolios were massively different from their body of work on the internet. Not with GWS though, their photos were amazing and there didnt appear to be any duds among the bunch
Met up with Grahame and immediately clicked with him. Loved his portfolios and he had some fantastic prices. Very professional and well organised. Had lots of information for us regardless of whether we were going to choose him or not. He wasnt pushy with us and encouraged us to look around so that we were sure we were making the right choice for us.
Found him to be so helpful on the run up to the wedding. He kept in touch with us and nudged us when we needed to get information to him. He was very responsive when we had any questions (even silly ones) which was great. We knew if we contacted him, we werent going to wait ages on a reply.
On the wedding day, Grahame and his daughter Annie were there from early morning. They never at any point interefered with the running of things like hair and make-up. I never even noticed them there most of the time. I had lots of positive feedback from the make up artist and hairdresser about how wonderful they were as they worked around everything that was happening. Even the guests commented on how lovely they were and didnt feel like they were in your face.
Grahame kept us on time for the whole day. I really dont think the day would have ran as smoothly if he wasnt there. He was like our honerary wedding co-ordinator. He had a schedule and got us moving about to stay on track. My head was complete mush so Im glad he was looking after things. I couldnt have remembered anything if I had tried.
We are both so glad we chose GWS Photography. From start to finish they have been absolutely wonderful. Our wedding would not have been as wonderful without their help and giving us the perfect wedding pictures.
Big thanks to Grahame and Annie xx
"Grahame's work was amazing from start to finish, the quality of the photos are amazing and he does everything just perfect A wedding is so stressful and having a photographer that I could trust to get on with the job and let me know what needed doing and when was just a hugh relief, will be reccomending GWS to all future brides."
Amazing work, captured all of our special moments. lovely to work with. Photos were amazing.
We used GWS photography for our wedding in September 2015. We first heard of Grahame through the sister of a previous bride so came highly recommended. From the start Grahame was friendly, relaxed and professional. The wedding pre shoot was a great experience to give us a flavour of what to expect and lots of tips on how to pose which was hilarious. Payment was quick and painless. On the wedding day Grahame and Annie arrived early to assess the mood and weather. The photos before the ceremony really captured the ambience. During the ceremony we hardly noticed they were they but I was confident they were and that they would get some great shots/footage. After the ceremony Grahame guided us through the family photos, bride and groom shots and into the wedding breakfast. This was a lengthy process that took a lot of energy out of all of us but Grahame kept us going. The humour, energy and talent that Grahame and Annie brought to our day was outstanding. Thank you.
Grahame is an easy going guy that will make you feel at ease throughout all photos from the pre wedding shoot to the big day. For someone that doesnt enjoy getting photographs taken he made the whole experience enjoyable. We were very vague on what we wanted on our wedding day but GWS organised all the photos we needed. His photography skills and ideas are amazing and would recommend GWS Photography to anyone. Thanks GWS Photography for helping us make our special day memorable :-)
We would like to thank Grahame and Annie for creating an incredible record of our special day.
Every photo is stunning, both of you have captured the joy of our wedding perfectly. You were discreet and professional but when the situation needed it, you were able to direct and motivate, even on a freezing November afternoon
Many people have commented on your great personalities and the professionalism, enthusiasm and energy you both displayed throughout the day. It certainly made our lives much easier, knowing that we were in good hands too.
Grahames artistic flare and vision led to the collection of striking photographs weve received. We cant believe its us in some of them
Also, thank you for the pep talk before our 1st dance :)
If we hear of anyone looking for a photographer, we will absolutely recommend GWS.
Thanks again, for everything.
Allanagh and Michael
"Grahame and Annie captured our day perfectly.
There was so many good photos to choose from for making our album.
We will always enjoy looking back at our album, as it gives us so many great memories of the day.
Craig and Sarah Kirkham"
Hi Grahame, will send a proper thank you once we are back from honeymoon but just wanted to say a quick word of thanks for everything you did on Saturday. Was so nice to have someone so relaxed and easy to get on with - made the whole photo thing so so much easier. Photos looking great so far. Emma & Geoff
Grahame was not only an amazing photographer, but an amazing person As a bride who hates photos,I thought Id never be happy, but I was proven wrong.
From our pre wedding shoot, he dealt with a camera shy bride, an awkward groom, and a tantrum throwing toddler, like it was nothing, and still produced perfect photos.
The wedding itself I forgot Grahame was there. He was everywhere and nowhere He captured every tear, every smile, every disaster and somehow all the love.
We cant thank him enough for being the most amazing photographer, listening and following our requests (nothing cheesy), capturing the mood of the day, being so professional and wonderful, yet still finding time to chat to all the guests, make everyone feel comfortable, and most importantly to us, have such a wonderful way with the kids that we got some priceless photos because they let you in to their world.
'Thanks for all your help Grahame. We couldn't have asked for a more personable, approachable photographer. Throughout, you were on hand to reassure and nothing was too much for you to help us with - you even doubled as a chaufeur on the day!'
"Grahame couldnt have done anything better.
For a couple who hate having there pictures taken we have over 400 fantastic photos that we truly adore.
Grahame managed to capture every element of the wedding and our guests perfectly and without intrusion.
He almost felt like a guest
I was nervous of having any photos taken during the bridal preparation but they are actually some of my favourites. Grahame is incredibly professional and the bond he made with our 2 year old daughter was amazing. Within minutes he gained her trust and she was happily playing with him and posing for pictures
He was the prefect photographer to capture our perfect day.
The engagement/pre wedding shoot is a must (As much as we were dreading it it makes you so much more relaxed on your day)."
Lynsey & Mark
"Grahame was simply brilliant throughout and our photos are stunning. Everyone who has seen them is complementary. Grahame made the whole process fun and really did his utmost to make sure that we got great reminders of our day. I would recommend Grahame without any hesitation."
Colin & Suzy
"We chose GWS Photography as our friends used them for their wedding. We loved there photos and decided we wanted the same for our wedding. I cant praise Grahame enough, he was amazing throughout the whole process.
The quality of photos are amazing and the prices are more than competitive. We had a fabulous experience and would highly recommend GWS photography."
"We found Grahame online and without hesitation booked him from 10,000 miles away purely on the strength of his easy, friendly and professional communication and beautiful online wedding portfolios. On arrival in Dunbar we heard glowing reports from locals about GWS Photography, and we werent disappointed During our meeting Grahame was really thorough in trying to understand exactly what we wanted to achieve, and very diplomatic when guiding us as to what was, and wasnt feasible, during winter daylight hours On the day Grahame worked hard to produce the photos wed requested. He was punctual, organised and friendly...managing to appear in all the right places at all the right times We are delighted with the quality of our photos, the slideshow is great for sharing with people who couldnt make it, and the USB presentation box a really nice touch. And it was all produced in super quick time We wouldnt hesitate in recommending GWS Photography to others - the service is personal and the photos superb Thanks for capturing our day so well...Carl & Moyra x"
"We loved working with GWS, from the first contact to the delivery of our photos the service was professional, timely, and extremely friendly. Grahame provided us with lots of ideas for pictures, spent time getting to know us and worked out where we were on the Cheese-o-meter The whole experience was relaxed, happy and exciting. We will highly recommend Grahame in the future and could not be happier with our photos. He even took his tie off and gave it to my Uncle Alan for the day as the hire company had forgotten to give him one What more can you ask for?"
"Thank you for our wonderful wedding photos. They are such a lovely reminder of our big day. Your professionalism and your knack at making everyone feel at easy is top class. I would Highly recommend your services to anyone that needs a good reliable photographer.
Keep up the good work."
"We wanted to find a person that we both liked and would fit in as part of our big day and would get on with our guests, not just another wedding photographer.
The quality of the photographers are amazing and will be treasured forever.
Everyone at the wedding loved the way Grahame worked with them to get the photos, friendly and relaxed, not pushy and always unseen in the background to get those one-off shoots when you arent looking.
You can visit venues to find out what they are like, listen to bands, taste carious caterers meals before the big day to know what you are getting exactly, but when it comes to picking a photographer, unless you have been to a wedding that they are there as well, you have to rely on your gut feeling for the person, their portfolio and experience and testimonials like these.
When it comes down to it, we are both so glad we chose Grahame to be there for the day as our photographer."
"The service and package we received from Gws photography was exceptional. We both found Grahame easy to be around which made our shoots more relaxed. The wedding day Grahame was punctual and managed to scoot about to take picture of both bride and groom getting ready. Our bride/groom shoots were brilliant and not too long. Allowed us some time to chat with our guests.
The pictures we have received are just beautiful and really have captured our day. Thank you so much Grahame. We had an excellent day, thank you for all your hard work."
"After our first meeting with Grahame we cancelled our other photographer appointments and we never regretted it. He put us at ease right from the start. On the day he was fantastic, he was there early and great with the kids who were nervous about getting there photo taken. After the ceremony he kept the photos moving along well while still allowing us time to speak to people. The photos we got from the day were amazing and the hardest thing was narrowing down the ones for the album as there was so many good ones to choose from. Couldnt recommend him higher."
"Using Grahame as our photographer was an excellent experience all round, the initial pre wedding shoot we had a couple of months before the wedding allowed us to meet with Grahame and get to know him a little. This definitely helped on the wedding day as we felt much more comfortable when getting our pictures taken.
On the day Grahame was great! We felt comfortable and relaxed when getting our photos done, I also like that Grahame took the photos in little chunks rather than standing for hours straight having photos, this allowed us to mingle with guests and then come back to get some more which I also thinks for much better photos.
A lot of my guests commented on the day of how great Grahame was and the photos we have are fantastic and better than I could have imagined.
In my opinion there is no better photographer in Edinburgh to get for your wedding, Grahame is great value for money and you still get £1 million pound service."

"Grahame your pictures are just simply stunning , they have captured our day perfectly in every way!! A fantastic mixture of posey picks and " in the moment " pics!
You were so much fun , professional and relaxed all at the same time and made us feel instantly at ease with you , as either of us are big fans of getting out pictures taken
Full of original ideas and open to new ideas even if they are daft!
Felt like I never really even seen you on the big day and was great to have little short intervals for the pictures rather than be away from all our guest for so long!
I am so glad that we found you and defiantly be so so highly recommended to everyone that I know !!!!
The little box that arrived in the post less than a week later a beautiful silver box enclosed a USB containing all 440 pictures!! Amazing !!!
Grahame you wee an absolute pleasure to communicate with, fun , extremely talented and clearly so passionate about what you do, we both can not thank you enough , you have captured moments we will cherish for all of our lifetime! Thank you so much!
This ones for you ....
(Michelle & Grahame at the end of Grahame's shift)
All the very best"

"We can't recommend GWS Photography enough for our wedding photos. Grahame is an excellent photographer, really down to earth and put us at ease straight away when we met him for our Pre-wedding shoot. After that we knew our wedding pictures would be amazing. He really thinks about the photos he's taking, and when a perfect photo opportunity arises (i.e. weather or particular locations of the wedding venue) - he makes use of it, you can tell he really takes pride in his work. As a result the photos he took of our wedding are absolutely beautiful and we will treasure them for years to come. They really captured every aspect of our day from the tears to the laughter and everything in between. I can't recommend him enough as nothing is too much hassle and he does any editing straight away- the first picture of our wedding was posted 4 hours after our guests had left! There's nothing worse than waiting months for your pictures, and we were so pleased that we received our complete set just 2 weeks later. If you want outstanding pictures with a photographer who will go above and beyond and who is also a really friendly and welcoming then Grahame is your guy!"

"We cant thank Grahame enough for the photos what a fab job he's made of them all, from the pre wedding shoot to the actual day, we have spent hours trying to pick the best 1s but they all sooooooo good! Thank you so much, your a star x"
By: Yvonne & Kris
"We can't thank Grahame enough for everything he did for us, both before and on the day of the wedding. We had never had any kind of photo shoots done before so we were a little apprehensive but Grahame put us completely at ease. Because of this we had a great time at our pre-wedding shoot which was really helpful and have us an idea of what to do on the wedding day. Grahame always kept us in the loop with any ideas and thoughts for photos so everything ran smoothly on the day and all our guests really appreciated how everything was done in a fun and light hearted manner. We were delighted when we saw our wedding photos, Grahame has done a fantastic job and we cannot recommend him highly enough."
By: Lorna & Lawrie
"Grahame's professionalism shone throughout our wedding photoshoots. He was an absolute pleasure to have around on the day bringing his good humour and stealth-like qualities in equal measure. Thank you Grahame Smith we look forward to seeing the portfolio."
"Grahame is in fact so lovely, if you don't have him as your wedding photographer, just have him as a guest instead. X"
"Thank you so so much for yesterday Grahame and i cant wait to see all of the photos, and alot of our guests were asking for ur business cards which was really great aswell, i dont think we could have found a better photographer so a big big thank you to u xxxx"
"hi Grahame just a wee note to say that we got our wedding album this morning and it is fab I love it!"
"These pics look great, can't wait to see your finished work. You were fantastic on the day and received loads of good comments from a lot of our guests. The slide show was a fab touch and also got many compliments, no one had experienced that at a wedding before so what a treat for all of us. Thank you once again."
