Wedding Photographer Edinburgh | Natural, Creative and Family Focussed
“A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.” – Ansel Adam
For me, as a wedding photographer I have a split second to capture the moments which create treasures which will last a lifetime. I love to capture the stories of the wedding day and treat every wedding as a unique day. I work with my couples to ensure that the service is the best and will always listen to what my clients need. I've attended so many weddings so I can also lend some guidance if you ask me to. I am unobtrusive and friendly and I just become an enjoyable part of your wedding 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.
I mainly work as a wedding photographer in Edinburgh and Fife but love to explore new venues and locations across Scotland and beyond so please get in touch and tell me your plans.

Some of the kinds words from my bride and grooms
Ross & Rachel
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

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!

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

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 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.
