My name is Andrew Weild. I am a professional portrait photographer and wedding photographer living in the Scottish Borders, not far from Edinburgh.
Whether shooting portraits, a wedding, or a civil ceremony, my aim is to create interesting and emotional images that you will want to look at again and again. I like to shoot from novel angles to get unusual perspectives, but also like to capture images in some of the traditional styles that have stood the test of time.
I believe that to get the best, most insightful, most natural image of a person, they should be at ease and allowed to be themselves. I work quickly and unobtrusively to provide you with a more relaxed experience where the "mechanics" of photography intrude as little as possible. Every photo shoot is about you and not the photographer.
At your wedding / civil ceremony I want you to get on with enjoying your day and not worry about the photography; I have an established record of delivering fantastic images in all conditions. My aims are to capture striking and emotional images that make you look good, while not intruding on your day or directing events. I believe the photographer is there to record your day as it naturally unfolds. If you are at all uneasy in front of a camera this provides the best, most natural results.
If you are interested I can visit you at home with some examples of the stunning albums and books that I have created.
I am available throughout the Borders, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Midlothian, West Lothian, East Lothian, Stirling, Fife, and by arrangement, the rest of Scotland or the UK. I am a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and also the Society of International School and Event Photographers (SISEP). I also hold full professional indemnity and liability insurance.

I am thrilled with the results of my photo shoot for my concierge and lifestyle website. Andrew was a complete professional and went to great lengths to get the perfect shot. I was under a very tight deadline to get the photos uploaded onto my website and he was extremely accommodating and had the photos ready for me to access within 24hours, I will definitely be using him for future events.

"Fantastic photos – thanks so much Andy these are really special."
"Andrew came to my parents home near Glasgow and took some wonderful photographs of our children and the whole family. He managed to come into the home in a calm, friendly and professional manner, which assisted in relaxing us all. He bonded fabulously with the children, having a lot of fun with them which really comes through in the photographs. There was a really variety in the shots, from indoors to outdoors, expressions and compostions. We all enjoyed it and will enjoy the photographs for years to come."
Terri, Edinburgh University
"We were absolutely delighted with the photographs taken by Andrew at our departmental 20th Anniversary Celebrations. Group shots were organised quickly and efficiently within a very tight time constraint. The choice of colour or black and white images taken during pre-dinner drinks were excellent, reflecting the relaxed and cheerful atmosphere of the evening. Hopefully, Andrew will be available to record future significant events."
Tom Salter, owner Farmhouse Nursery
"Andrew has provided us with a stunning set of photographs exactly matching the brief we gave him. He has captured what makes our children's nursery business special. I would recommend Andrew's work to anybody."
"Thanks Andy for some truly beautiful portrait and action photographs of Freya! The photographs are vivid, colourful and capture her at play at nursery. They make a fantastic and professional contribution to the everyday photographs we’re taking of her growing up, a set of memories we can refer to again and again. In the years to come, your photographs will definitely help Freya remember her fun-filled days at nursery."
Andy & Shana, Argyll
"Andy was fantastic. He consulted with us very carefully regarding what we wanted and carried it all out gracefully and with no fuss. It couldn't have been better. What was striking to us, aside from the obvious quality of the photography, was the way he captured elements of the wedding and the location that we just weren't aware of. He left us with a record of the event and the landscape surrounding it that retrospectively enriches the experience for us."
Susan & Angela, Manchester
"Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. We love them."
David & Gill, Cumbria
"Andrew, thanks for the pictures - they are excellent. I never knew we could look so good! Once again outstanding clarity and composition. You certainly see things others don't."
