What is associate photography?

I’m often booked for dates 18 months in advanced and sadly I have to turn down many weddings. Rather than sending them to other photographers, I wanted to work with these couple and offer the same high level of professionalism and quality of photography they would have received from myself. I spent years building a team of talented photographers who photograph and think like me when it comes to weddings.

All business, editing and album design will be overseen by myself as the founder the company. If you love the style and approach of James Kelly Photography, but I’m not available, you can now work with one of my two associates, who are both talented professional photographers.


We are not the type of photographer who goes around giving out orders, taking the couple away for hours on end. This is not us, although we like to get involved,  We are there to document your day as it should be, natural but also having a lot of fun.

We cover everything the day has to offer, from early morning preparations to the evening dancing. Very flexible and will do anything to ensure you have a fantastic collection of images to cherish forever. We believe in building a good relationship with our couples, and letting them know that there is no such thing as a stupid question, and no request is too much.

  • Pre-wedding shoot (practise run),

Lets get to know a little more about Louise and her portfolio is below.


I have.....been working with James for around six or so years. It is amazing who and what you find in Aberdeen Kebab shop.

My most favourite..... things to do is take awesome photos (obviously), walk the dogs, read, travel, go to my HITT class and travelling.

If you....love animals we are going to get on brilliantly. I would go as far to ask your opinion on Brussels sprouts also but my answer might scare you off (I LOVE THEM).

Are you....looking for someone who has a bit of a laugh with you on your wedding day while 110% of the time giving you a fun experience and making you and your guests feel at ease. It’s your day after all.

I once.....went on holiday and came back with two dogs (hence the animal vibe).

Did you know....My other main areas of photography are families and pets.

It is so important that you click with your wedding photographer because well you are going to be spending all day together totally immersed in the day.

On your wedding day I want you to be as relaxed as possible so you can forget about me and enjoy your special day.  I pride myself in my ability of staying unobtrusive and capturing candid images of the day from afar. Being 6'4" this is a skill I have had to acquire quickly but these are the moments my clients have said they find have captured the essence of the day and are the most enjoyable to look at.

I love capturing all the smaller details and will spend time doing this during the quieter periods of your wedding.  You will have spent a long time preparing all aspects of your wedding but rarely have time to enjoy everything on the day.

Being a wedding photographer is not just about taking stunning pictures of your day.  You have to be friendly, approachable, helpful and above all else willing to do whatever it takes to make sure the biggest day of your life is unforgettable!
