Lauren McGlynn, Wedding & Elopement Photographer in Edinburgh, Scotland

I am thrilled by pretty light, quiet moments, and outrageous dance moves. I’m pretty laid back, and I believe that it is my job to ensure that having your picture taken is fun and easy.

Every time I pick up my camera I get excited by the potential to create something beautiful, and I really want to do that with you. My goal is to capture everything that is wonderful about your wedding and give it back to you in photographs that you will always love looking at.

I am passionate about the environment, and I have put a lot of thought and care into making my business as green as it can be. Over the last year I have given up all analogue photography. I moved from DVDs & USB drives to online galleries with digital downloads. I switched to paperless contracts. My wedding albums are not only gorgeous, but they are crafted from materials that are either recycled or sustainably sourced, and they are delivered via carbon neutral shipping. I am not a destination wedding photographer, and while I don’t think that I could say no to photographing your wedding in Iceland or Italy or the Isle of Skye, my hope is to reduce my carbon footprint by traveling less for work and focusing on Edinburgh & Scotland weddings and elopements.

When I’m not working, I’m usually chasing my toddler around Edinburgh. In the evenings, I enjoy listening to the news whilst plotting out how to best use the vegetables from my veggie box. I’m always up for adventures and exploring the outdoors, and I’ve got a particular fondness for mountains and white sandy beaches. I’ve listened to every episode of This American Life, I’ve got a giant crush on Joanna Newsom, my favourite author is Margaret Atwood, and my favourite TV show is Girls. I’m American, and most of my life has been spent in various places across the southern states. Edinburgh is the best city that I’ve ever lived in, though I had a lot of fun in Austin, Texas, and a piece of my heart will always belong to North Carolina.

I am a member of The Glasgow Wedding Collective, and my work has been featured on Love My Dress, Offbeat Bride, East Side Bride, A Practical Wedding, Rock My Wedding, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Rock N Roll Bride, and more.

I specialize in documentary style wedding day coverage and fine art portraits. I’d love to hear about your wedding, or talk to you about a portrait session. Drop me a line at mcglynnphotography@gmail.com to find out more.
