Hello all!

Could anyone recommend a photographer in the UK that has a similar style to the photographers below?

http://www.bobbyearle.​com/ (external link) - I believe Bobby Earle is on this forum. I love your work!!

Now, I have considered paying for a photographer to fly to Scotland. However, I currently live in California and if I didn't have to fly myself and my husband (we are actually already married...long story!) back to Scotland I would have booked one of them in an instant! Unfortunately it is not in my budget unless I postpone for another couple of years (Yes, I have considered this for the right photographer and it is still an option if I don't find someone whose work I love equally)

I love Jeff Ascough's work, it is really tremendous. However, I am looking for something more in line with the theme of my wedding. Eclectic, vintage and colourful.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! :)

Well... I'm honored that I'm in that list! Where in California are you???

When is your wedding and what's your general budget for photography? It'll help us narrow down some good recommendations :D

Hello! Great of you to reply! Thank you.

I am in Santa Barbara county. I love it here! I would have planned to have my wedding here but we decided there would be less people to fly to Scotland than there would be to the US so it made sense. I think a reasonable budget would be £5000 - £6000 (Around $8000-$9500) max - that would also have to include airfare and expenses where applicable. We are thinking of having the wedding during the summer of 2014 but the problem is with my husband being in the USAF we never know when he will be deployed or we will be moving. I don't want to plan a wedding for him then to get deployed...so it may have to be last minute which makes it super difficult because I want a fabulous photographer!

I would like to at least start off with some names in the UK so I can see what my more local options are before I make a decision. :)

One thing, one thing... Wedding Photography is a lot cheaper here in the UK. I'm £1200 (See my stuff below) even the top top top guys are around 4k per wedding and that's because you pay for the name half the time!

Scotland is beautiful though, truly a beautiful place for Wedding Photography so finding the shots you want will be easy.

I've worked all over the world and I've never had a work visa. Border agents are powerless against my devilish charm. :cool:

Im going to edit what i just recently posted. I just read on DWF about Canada refusing re-entry after the photographer traveled around the world with their gear. If you are working in another country, without a visa, it is illegal, and you may face legal repercussions because of it.

It's also illegal to speed and murder, people still do those things. It's all depends how much you care about being caught. Be smart about it and you'll probably be fine.

13 different countries spanned over 20 different visits, never been hassled.

Great! Thank you for the link. I am interested in their documentary package. Great price too including 3 albums and a large fine art print.

I noticed this after more research. Hopefully I can find a gem easily within my price range then. I am from the very north of the Highlands so I also have to keep in mind travelling and accommodation expenses.

One great thing if I were to hire from overseas is that the photographer could stay in my parents house where I will be having the wedding reception in the walled garden (possibly the whole wedding) http://www.pennylandho​use.co.uk/ (external link) Hopefully this would cut my costs a little unless they wanted to stay elsewhere.

Interesting, I have never thought about that before...makes sense of course as they are working. How do "destination" photographers manage it? Do they get Visas for each country? I doubt it! If all they are doing in the foreign country is "taking pictures" ;)...all the editing/finance issues/printing are completed at home then surely that is legal?

So you are condoning murder as long as you dont get caught? I am not saying you cannot (and even if I did, I doubt you would take my advice). Illegal is illegal, and just be aware of the possible consequences.
