Hello there, Thanks for stopping by, I’m Roma, i’m a fine art photographer for the adventurous and the romantic, I am based in Glasgow in Scotland.
I have been described as an ‘artistic’ photographer by others and this probably sums up my work quite well. I have had my work featured on Vogue Italia, We Fell in Love, My lovely Scottish Wedding, US Blog Ruffled Wedding Blog and many more.
I have been lucky enough to shoot weddings all over the place, from the UK to as far as Thailand. From sparkler shots set in castle ruins, dancing in fairylit barns, vows under chandeliers hanging from trees in gardens, reception meals under the stars on the beach, taken group shots on the edge of famous lochs with snow peaked mountains for backdrops, watched owls deliver rings in scottish castles I have been privalidge to some of the most amazing weddings.
I like old movies and new friends. I’m a hopeless romantic, my favourite movies are Gone with the Wind and anything with Audrey Hepburn in it! I was brought up on alot of Disney which is most likely where my happily ever after streak has grown from, …I have been known on a rainy day to work my way through the classics….while consuming my own body weight in chocolate! I am a huge animal lover and have an unhealthy obsession with anything pirate themed and The walking Dead series.
My interest for photography first sparked in my teenage years when I was signed to an agency as a model, after 10 years in this industry I realised I was much more comfortable being behind the camera than in front, and just like you, I dont like having my photo taken. These years have helped me realise how scary and uncomfortable it can be to be photographed so one of my main focuses is always to make my clients feel at ease, almost so much so by the end of the shoot we will be most likely chatting like old friends.
They say photographs are the only tangible memories, which means that my perspective is how you will remember some of the most important moments in your life. With that in mind, I have to capture the details (big and small) in the most beautiful light. I want you to laugh and cry when you look at your photos. Whether it’s your wedding day or your babies growing up, time goes by so fast, so it’s my job to document your story… beautifully.
I get to know couples over the course of several months and get a sense of their personality, I consider the spontaneous and candid moments throughout the wedding day, as well as the environment, ideal lighting, backdrop and time of day for taking the best images. The end result is a mix of natural reportage photos emphasizing the narrative of the day, the character of the wedding destination and a strong sense of the couple’s personality.
I have been described as an ‘artistic’ photographer by others and this probably sums up my work quite well, I like to aim for more unusual shots and create almost fairytale images.
Whats not to love, I get a complete buzz shooting weddings, it is such a happy day and as the excitement builds I just cant stop grinning. I am a complete romantic, Iv been happily married for 10 years and together for 15 so strongly believe in happily ever after and romance. The moment the bride is ready to go, the moment her dad sees her and cries, the moment the groom sees her for the first time, the speeches etc, its like one big fairytale and I feel very honoured to get to capture these intimate moments.
Go with your instinct, if you like their work get in touch. I like to be nice and open with my couples so that they can feel they can ask for any shots they desire. Have an open mind when looking for a photographer and don't be afraid to ask questions.
I love to travel! Lets go!
