Throughout the wedding planning process myself and my husband Alex made many, many choices. Picking Doug as our photographer was truly the best and most important choice we made.
Doug is warm, friendly, genuine, stylish (everyone said so) and has an incredible ability to take beautifully intimate and natural photos without you even noticing he’s taken them. We both felt as though we had spent the day with a friend and everyone commented on what an amazing addition he was to our day.
We looked through our photos tonight with our friends and family and we could not be happier with how Doug has captured our day, everyone felt seen and included, most of all our darling dog Bodie who was front and centre thanks to Doug, crazy spaniel traits and all! This meant a great deal to us.
We don’t know how to pick which photos we want on our walls because, we quite simply love them all.
I cannot recommend Doug enough, we miss him already.

Doug photographed our wedding in July of this year and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. He's simply amazing and we would highly recommend him!
Doug was warm and friendly throughout the day and neither of us really noticed that he was even there most of the time. My husband David definitely doesn't enjoy having his photos taken and even he found the experience of couple photos enjoyable - that says a lot about Doug's skills!
In terms of the photos - they're simply beautiful and we love them so much. They capture the love and happiness of our day perfectly and this is something that many of our family members and friends have commented on as well. We received some previews just two days after the wedding which meant so much to us. We also received all our photos a lot quicker than expected which we also appreciated.
Thank you so much once again Doug!
Camilla & David
Doug photographed our engagement shoot last year and most recently our wedding in August 2023. Apart from being an all around great guy who put us at ease on both occasions, he's incredibly talented and great at what he does. The (many) wedding photos we received captured the beauty, emotion and humour of the day in such careful detail. They made us laugh and cry and we'll treasure them forever. We would highly recommend Doug!
Maddie & Callum
From initial chat/consultation to the big day - we cannot recommend Doug more! He already came recommended and we were thrilled to work with him. On the day - he made us feel incredibly comfortable, as two people who generally find photos awkward! He was supportive, and kept it fun and light. We have received our pictures and we are absolutely in love with them. We could genuinely not be happier with the outcome and the pictures capture a truly magical day for us. Highly recommend Doug and his incredible talent! Thank you so much Doug - this is something we’ll never forget. Hannah and Craig Hume.

Doug has been a joy to work with from the first time we were in contact back in 2019. He has persevered with us through 2 postponements (thanks Doug!) and we could not be happier with our choice of wedding photographer. On the day Doug was so friendly and had a very calm presence, he really helped us to feel at ease and to have fun taking photos (neither of us really like getting our picture taken normally). We received the photos last week and we are absolutely delighted with them! They are perfect. All our guests commented on how fantastic Doug was on the day, and how incredible the photos look. Thank you Doug, these photos will continue to make us smile for years to come!

If I could give more than five stars I would...
I originally chose Doug at Northern Aye because of his style of photos. He had covered a lot of smaller, intimate and quirky weddings which is what ours was going to be and so I wanted someone who got what we were doing. Doug surpassed all expectations...
From the get-go it was like you were talking to a really lovely friend. He is really quick to respond and takes you through the whole day in great detail (which for a control freak like me made my life easy). I felt so at ease with the plan and what we wanted to achieve which was a relaxed and candid capturing of the day.
On the day he was amazing, he made taking photos fun! (Which is a big deal as my husband hates getting his photo taken). He was so easy to get along with and just fit in like another guest at the wedding which was so nice. Doug - all of our guests loved you!
We received sneak peak photos just a couple of days after the wedding when we were on our honeymoon - which was such a lovely surprise. We then received all of our photos around a month after which I couldn't believe how quick they came.
The photos are just incredible, so beautiful and some are funny and some made me cry. They are perfect. I am so glad we chose Doug to be our photographer. It is such an important day and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to be our photographer. Thank you, Doug, for giving us these incredible memories to look back on...now just to decide which ones to print!
Alex & Duncan
We have just received our wedding photos from Doug and my husband and I cannot recommend him highly enough. The photos absolutely captured the day from start to finish. They look beautiful, perfectly encapsulate our wedding, and bring back such truly joyful memories. Not only are the photos stunning, but Doug was a joy to work with and to have with us part of our wedding day. We had a great time taking pictures, and a lot of our guests commented on how fun and personable Doug was. We honestly could not recommend him highly enough.
Rebecca & Dave
Doug was a fantastic photographer for our wedding. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him!
Doug is such a lovely guy and put us at ease from our first conversation. Doug was more than happy to have an initial meeting with us before we booked him to have a chat and find out more about his approach to photography, and he was always available to discuss anything in the run up to our wedding. On our wedding day Doug was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made us feel so comfortable and just blended in to our wedding as he worked away taking lots of beautiful photos.
We are so pleased with all our photos and loved the box Doug sends with some prints and usb - a really lovely touch to receive this in addition to the online gallery!
Rebecka & Jamie
Having Doug as our photographer felt like having an extra guest at our wedding, a friend that felt as if we had known for years. Doug exudes calmness and was such a fantastic person to have around throughout the day. His guidance was invaluable from our first virtual meeting and throughout the full day down to the first dance, for which he stayed much later than he needed to to capture it. He went above and beyond his normal duty and never imposed at any moment. We all felt so comfortable in his presence and we feel it shows in the phenomenal moments he has captured.
Despite all the challenges and hurdles we faced in our planning, Doug was so accommodating at each step and we are forever grateful that he stuck with us and was there to capture our day.
For anyone contemplating booking Doug, please don't hesitate and do it. You 100% won't regret it.
Aoife & Kevan
Doug was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a great zoom meeting prior to the wedding and went through all of the details and the shots we wanted. His approach really makes you feel totally comfortable in front of the camera and we had a blast during our wedding shoot! When we said we were going to need to throw on some wellies to walk through some mud in the woods Doug was right there with us making the most of it! He captured the most intimate and exciting moments with our guests and we are able to relive the day through his lens. Absolutely 100% hire him you will not be let down!
Christina & David
Can not recommend Doug enough!
Dougs approach really matched how we wanted our wedding to go, really chilled and relaxed which also put us at ease. He went through what we wanted with us weeks before the wedding which was excellent. And he was fantastic on the day. Got all the shots we wanted, and then all the candid shots we could have asked for. He really was able to capture the day, and peoples emotions, and I absolutely love our photos. An incredible way to remember our day and I’m so grateful to Doug!
Eleanor & William
Doug photographed our wedding in March 2022 and we honestly cannot recommend him enough!
From start to finish Doug was phenomenal. I (bride) was super nervous about getting pictures taken but he was so good at making me (and our whole wedding party) feel extremely comfortable throughout the day.
The pictures are fantastic and really capture how happy we were on our day. Beyond the typical wedding photographs, Doug was MORE than happy to take the handful of silly pictures that we had asked for just for our collection! Our friends and family are also immensely impressed with the quality of the photography and how he managed to capture genuinely intimate moments between them.
Frances & Kevin
Doug was amazing to work with and his photos are exceptional. We had our destination wedding in Scotland and he was very accommodating even when we had to move the wedding date due to COVID-19. I was blown away by the photos from the wedding because he perfectly captured the day. We can't wait to get many of them printed out and framed. I would highly recommend hiring Northern Aye Photography for any event!
Lauren & Tyler
We cannot recommend Doug highly enough! On the day Doug put us (and all of our friends and family) at ease with his relaxed and friendly manner. A number of our guests commented on this this too! Intuitive and able to read the room, Doug captured so many special moments during the ceremony and reception that we’ve loved to look at. Doug has a fantastic, creative eye and the photographs are so beautiful, it’s impossible to choose which ones we’d like to print! The photographs were the part of the day Fraser and I were a little nervous about, but thanks to Doug, we actually really enjoyed it and love that he captured the fun atmosphere of the day
Rachel & Fraser
We can’t thank Doug enough for the incredible photos of our wedding day that he created. From our first consultation to the actual wedding he was so professional and so lovely. Throughout the day of the wedding, he was very discreet and this meant that’s he managed to capture every moment so naturally. Myself and husband are very awkward in front of a camera and he managed to make us feel relaxed and caught each moment perfectly. If you’re thinking of going with Northern Aye then I say do it!
Courtney & Gavin
Two words... absolutely amazing! Neither of us are very comfortable having our picture taken but Doug was great at making us feel relaxed (and beautiful!). The first time we met him was on the wedding day but because he is so down to earth and easy to get on with, we felt like we’d known him forever. We have the most stunning photographs, we are in love and will never tire of showing them off! Thank you for capturing just how special our day was x
Joelle & Adam
Doug was our photographer for our wedding in July in Glasgow - we found him online. Cannot say enough how absolutely brilliant his work his - we now have so many amazing photos that capture our day. Doug is also super friendly, took the time to get to know us and what we wanted and was great on the day! Following the wedding we also received a lovely box with a USB, printed photos and a card which was so lovely! We would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!
Kelly & Phil
We asked Northern Aye to be a part of our big day in November 2021. The photos Doug has produced from the wedding are absolutely stunning. He captured every moment and his pictures really tell a brilliant story of how the day went. He was very professional and easy to work with but also really helpful with things you might not normally notice like sorting bits of the dress for the picture etc. His attention to detail is first class and has the patience of a saint when dealing with the younger kids. In all honesty it was like having another guest there taking the pictures! We couldn't recommend Northern Aye highly enough!
Steph & Ben
Fantastic photographer with great communication. Doug understood the feel of the snaps that we wanted and he captured the moments perfectly! Doug was a lovely guy to have around on the wedding day and we highly recommend. We adore our photographs and receiving our photo box in the post was such a lovely touch. We had the most perfect day and now some stunning photographs to look back on
Nicole & Jack
It's hard to begin to thank Doug enough for the way he captured our small wedding, Nov 2020. In practical terms, Doug has been fantastic to communicate with throughout; responsive, efficient, professional yet really friendly. He has the kind of nature that puts people at ease and carried out his work completely unobtrusively on the day.... None of the family are particularly comfortable in front of a camera, particularly me, and yet I can honestly say I didn't feel uncomfortable at all on the day and love the photos so much more than I could have imagined I would. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Northern Aye for a wedding or any other special event and don't think anyone could possibly be disappointed if they book.
