Edinburgh Photography

Natural family photo shoots, at a location of your choice, outdoor or in your own home. Ali Jay Photography is a family photographer based in Fife, near Dunfermline and Edinburgh. The photographs are natural and I don't use flash which makes the photo shoot comfortable and more enjoyable. The photo shoots are often about adventure and play so the kids and parents have lots of fun and don't feel like they're having a photo shoot.

Edinburgh Photography

Whether you are visiting for study or for a holiday, wouldn't it be lovely to have some beautiful images to take home from your time in Scotland and Edinburgh, photography may not be the first part of your holiday planning but it is the thing you take home. It is the lasting part of your trip. Ali Jay Photography captures emotive portraits that capture you in the beautiful environment that you are exploring. 

Scotland provides some stunning backdrops from the iconic castle in Edinburgh to the majestic mountains in Glen Coe where they set Hagrid's cabin in the Harry Potter films. For others nothing is more impressive than the engineering majesty of the Forth Bridge, recently certified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.   

When I look through my albums the happy memories I have photographed are pulled back from the abyss of my mind and they make me smile. Your holiday or graduation photographs should be something beautiful you can treasure, that tell your story and capture the details of your day.

What to expect?

My photoshoots are informal, relaxed and natural. People enjoy the experience as they are not about getting your photo taking but going on an adventure with me by your side to capture some lasting memories.  I love natural un-posed smiles so I make my family photo shoots fun and I create an experience you will enjoy. You can choose how long a shoot you want depending on what you want to see.

2hrs - for a photoshoot exploring central Edinburgh

4hrs - this slightly longer shoot allows you to visit central Edinburgh and wider Edinburgh

8hrs - this whole day shoot allows time to visit Glen Coe or other locations around Scotland within a few hours of Edinburgh.
