My Client 's Kind Words :-)

"Thank you so much for the amazing photos they are perfect! Had an absolutely fab wedding day and it was great having Alison there to capture it!" CHRIS AND EMILY LONGSTAFF
"Love our wedding photos. Ali captured the day brilliantly from beginning to end x" CAT & STEVE FAIRLIE
"Alison was our photographer for our son’s naming day ceremony and she was fantastic; very professional and really good at getting everyone where they should be for posed shots. Not only were we extremely pleased with the posed photos but she also got a great selection of natural shots of the day. We didn’t have to do anything on the day; after agreeing types of shots we would like in advance, Alison did everything else. We would highly recommend her." ANDY, KAREN & JACOB WILSON

Can't recommend Ali enough - she helped make an unofficial stag do in Edinburgh truly memorable.

"Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of our wedding! You made the main photo shoot totally relaxed and fun, which definitely comes through in the pictures! We absolutely love the natural shots of our guests enjoying themselves throughout the day. From our first meeting to the big day, your guidance in planning pictures, organizing timings and loads of other wee details has been invaluable. We can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful memories you have captured beautifully." KATRINA & JOSH COLE
"We are so pleased with our photos. Alison was so patient as we faffed about trying to get a content and sleepy baby between feeds and she even mucked in with finishing some home made props, that I had began to make, as I fed.
She did a great job and we had to put a few images on our thank you cards, to friends and family, as we couldn't even pick a favourite.
It's so worth doing as it can be hectic in the first few weeks, especially when it's not your first child and there's not the same time to sit and get as many good photos.
Alison is so friendly. She creates a very natural and beautiful set up and it's easy to feel relaxed around her." DAN & SARAH LYTH

Ali was fantastic. Really listened to who we were and what we wanted. Very excitedly looking through photos now! Thanks Ali!

"Ali makes the whole experience relaxing and fun, especially important when working on baby shoots. This shines through in her work producing great natural pictures. I'm delighted with the pictures. Ali has captured special moments when our daughter is learning to smile to her sitting up and beyond. What a lovely keepsake." FIONA BELL
Can't thank Ali Jay Photography enough for capturing our very very special day. On such an intimate occasion (only 6 guests) we needed someone who would fit right in and make everyone feel at ease which Ali did so naturally. The beautiful photographs really captured the relaxed charm of our wonderful ceremony and afternoon tea afterwards! I can't recommend Ali Jay Photography highly enough, just wish we could do it all over again x FLORENCE GRANVILLE

ALISON, GORDON & THE KIDS

"Ali is amazing, she takes on board what you from your photographer and your day and she makes it work. Never work with animals or small children and Ali says No problem.  She captures the feeling of the day. The story her photos tell are fantastic.  Gordon and I were so lucky to have Ali Jay photograph our day."

"We got photos of our baby boy done by Ali and love them. The photo shoot was so relaxed and enjoyable. Already got two more shoots planned with Ali. Highly recommended. Thank you!" VICKI STOKES
"What can I say! Ali Jay photography or Ali does amazing photos. We are super pleased with our wedding day photos and our ring making photos. Ali has a a gentile approach and has the patience to find the best candid moment and make it artistic and beautiful at the same time.
Ali and I got on immediately from a random phone call after finding Ali on bark. It's important to get on with your wedding photographer as the photos work so much better if you are on friendly terms and you are totally at ease with your photographer and Ali managed to do both so genuinely and effortlessly.
Ali became part of the family in such a short space of time, our guests on the day were so impressed how Ali was so personable and genuine in the execution of her art.
Ali is also is a bit of a tease, because the next day after the wedding she released some fabulous samples of her work while we were on honeymoon, which meant we looked forward to the rest, but she kept on giving us more little tasters.
Ali is adapting and will custom to your photographic needs, so if you want formal or candid pictures you will get only the very best talent for either or both.
Thank you Ali, you really are a brilliant, artistic photographer and I want to come to your lessons when you start to teach photography and I have the time to learn! Gaye"  GAYE & RICHARD DOCKRELL

Ali made everyone feel so at ease and captured wonderful natural pictures of us and our wedding guests.

Its great to have photos of the 3 of us as one of us is usually behind the camera. I would have no hesitation recommending your photography services to others and I will most definitely be back for another shoot in the future, thank you! Xxx" CLAIRE MASTERTON
"We were moving house leaving an area of Scotland we loved and had had many happy times. We asked Alison is she could capture some of these happy moments for us by joining us on a family dog walk we often took. We are thrilled with the results, Alison managed to pack everything we hoped for into the photos. Thank you so much Alison." PETE RHODES
"I won a photo-shoot with a competition she had at the time :) this was my first time working with her she is lovely and friendly also very punctual with the finished work, I am impressed :) it was a delight, thank you so much xx"
"Ali came to do a family photo shoot and capture the celebrations at a Ruby wedding party we were having. She has a relaxed professional style which got us quickly feeling very comfortable and relaxed ourselves. The result was a good mix of posed and 'capture the moment pictures' There was a lot of laughter as she got us into place. The resulting pictures show that and also really tell the story of the weekend. She shows great versatility in her approach and is receptive to what might best suit the clients and the occasion."
