Documentary Wedding Photographer | Edinburgh & Scotland

Are you just looking for a wedding photographer, a wedding photographer in Edinburgh or are you looking for a great wedding photographer who can make your day extra memorable wherever you are? Have you considered what your photographer can bring to your wedding day. Great wedding photographers don't just take photographs, we are there when you are getting ready, when you have those little cuddly intimate moments together and until you are spinning around on the dance floor in the evening. We have a split second to capture the moments which you will treasure for a lifetime.


Jemma & Alistair

We were so delighted with the photos! We knew we wanted Ali to do our photos as I had seen some of her work on a friend’s Facebook pics of her wedding (Angela and Stuart had a gorgeous wedding up in the Highlands at a lochside hall).

She is great fun and really puts you at your ease. I love her photos because they are more natural than some wedding photoshoots I’ve seen. She is good fun and really professional to deal with, taking care of little details even after the wedding with her gorgeous presentation keepsake box for the pen drive!

I want you to feel comfortable with me, I will give you guidance when you need it, I will capture your day to it's best with artistic natural photographs which capture the connections between you and your wedding guests. I will think about the little things which make your day better and make your memories last. I will help you create a beautiful piece of wall art that you can treasure or an album which can be a family heirloom for your grandchildren to look through.


Camera Shy?

Most of my couples are! My natural documentary un-posed photography is so unobtrusive and relaxing. I will help you get stunning natural images and help you feel comfortable with me there.

I think it is great to meet up and have a chat about your day, I also love doing engagement shoots so you have some beautiful shots to share in a guest book or as a slideshow at your wedding or just do it as a fun practice before your day. 

My clients have left many kind words so please scroll down and read their words as they can tell you what i'm like better than I can.

This was our special day we had the most wonderful day we really loved every single moment! #bestdayever our photographer Ali Jay was amazing! I highly recommend her! She made us feel so relaxed and comfortable, her photos really told the story of our day and captured the emotion of everyone. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Thank you! X

Gaye & Richard

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!

Florence & Fergus

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

Alison & Gordon

Ali is amazing, she takes on board what you want 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.
