About Richie Laurie

Richie has been taking photos for the last 15years. "It's more than just a job it's my passion" 


"Richie Laurie was the photographer at our wedding in August 2007. Richie met with us before our big day and helped us decide what photographs we wanted then; all of which he took and more. he was organised and professional both before and on the day. He spent time with both of us while we were getting ready and captured the excitement we both felt. His manner when directing us and our guests was personable, professional and calm. Richie provided us with a treasured collectin of memories of a very special day! We would highly recommend Richie as your photographer for any special occasions." Jennifer and Jonathan Crowson. 

"Richie was our wedding photographer in March 2008. Prior to the wedding he met with us to discuss our requirements and helped us to decide what we wanted, He also give us a pre-wedding phot-shoot which was great practice for the big day. Our photographs have been much admierd by all who see them. especially the black & white outdoor shots. We would strongly recommend him to anyone." Gordon and Jennifer Hume.

"Richie was our photgrapher on the 3rd July 2010 for our Wedding. We were delighted with the professional and friendly service and would easily recommend Richie to our friends and family. We had quite a lot of contact with Richie before the wedding so everything was well planned before the day meaning that there was one less thing to worry about! He had great suggestions as to where could take take some photos and he worked with the days schedule. Many of our guests commented on how discreet Richie was, as well as being friendly and approachable. Were initially a little nervous about having our photos taken but Richie was quick to make us feel at ease and made sure we had lots of fun. although we set out a plan with him of all the photos we wanted, he was very accommodating of any extras ones we asked to be taken on the day. We(and all of our family and friends!) are all so happy with all of the photos and we would definitely recommend him. our album is beautiful. Thank you Richie". Joanna & Gordon Corry

"We asked Richie to photograph our wedding last year (26th Feb 2011) and the level of care and attention that he gave to us was second to none. Richie made us feel at ease in front of the camera and captured some beautiful natural shots as well as some more formal poses. He was organised and visited the venue before the day to ensure that, regardless of the weather, we were guaranteed to get great photographs. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richie to anybody who is looking for a wedding photographer". Caroline & Paul Huggan

"Richie was a fantastic choice of photographer for our wedding(11th June 2011). He was recommended by a friend and has since become a friend of ours. His professionalism and attention to detail really helped to capture our wedding day perfectly. He mixed in well with our guests, helping to capture a real sense of the day and to do justice to the occasion. We would highly recommend him for anyone looking to hire a photographer for any occasion or social event, in particular if you want to really capture a sense of important, once in a lifetime celebrations like weddings." - Adam & Marlous Lang

"Richie was our photographer for our wedding in June 2012, we got married at the Vu at Bathgate so Richie knew what to expect he went and visited the Vu in the week leading up to our big day so he knew of nice locations for our photos he also was able to go inside and see of any places we could go incase the weather was not in our favour, as a couple we felt that this was a very nice touch and made us feel at ease about the day and also one less thing to worry about. with the Vu having lovely grounds Richie came prepared with umbrellas incase of rain. He made us feel very realxed and at ease on our day and during the ceremony and evening reception we loved the fact that although he was there he wasnt invasive and in your face which has given us some lovely natural candid shots. We would recomennd Richie to any friends looking for a photographer for their big day!!". Hannah and Robert Paton June 2012

"Richie was the photographer for our wedding on July 14, 2012 at the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh. From the moment we contacted him, we were so impressed with his professionalism and his friendly manner. We met before the wedding for pre-wedding pictures, which really helped to make us feel more relaxed in front of the camera.
On the day itself, Richie was calm, helpful and professional, and took some really amazing pictures. He and his assistant were friendly and unobtrusive, and took some really great group shots, as well as some natural, candid ones, which I love! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a good photographer." Rachael and James, July 14, 2012
