Hi, I'm Doug of Northern Aye Photography. I am a freelance photographer based in Ayrshire, Scotland. Although I live in sunny Ayrshire I am open to travelling across Scotland, Northern England (my birth place, hence the Northern Aye!) & further afield
As a married man, I know how important and fun the big day is. This is what inspires me as a wedding photographer. For me it was the best day of my life! All my favourite people in one room and getting to celebrate love & friendship. There's no other day like it. That is why it is so important to have beautifully captured photographs to look back on for years to come. I take a relaxed and candid documentary style approach to my wedding photography trying to get the most interesting shots that will show the unique character of each wedding individually.
I offer wedding photography packages, couples photoshoots, event photography and other things in between so don't hesitate to get in touch. I like to consider the needs of every client individually.
When I'm not busy with photography I am usually exploring the sights of Scotland or found cuddling my son, visiting art galleries with my wife or, most probably, walking my cocker spaniel Rasmus.
