My name’s David Ho, I’m 39 and I’m a professional photographer living in Edinburgh. I’ve been photographing weddings & portraits all over Scotland & the UK for over 13 years now. I like to think that I’m good at what I do! But I definitely know that I love what I do. To be invited to document the happiest day in someone’s life is a real privilege and an absolute joy. Alongside that comes a responsibility which I never take lightly. At any wedding, my main objective is to provide the bride & groom with the most amazing pictures possible, reflecting the people, the venue, the atmosphere and emotions of their big day. Aside from photography, it’s important to me that I contribute positively to the enjoyment of the wedding day itself. To this end, my whole approach is very informal and light hearted. And I work quickly too, knowing exactly what I need to capture. And I love to interact with all of the guests to get the best out of them for the pictures! Everything I do is professional yet designed to encourage an atmosphere of fun, laughter and good humour.
How do I photograph weddings? What’s my style? This is a hard one to pin down because I’ve grown so much as a photographer in the last 13 years. In the main, I love to photograph in a style that is candid, spontaneous and unobtrusive. Clicking away constantly, capturing whatever my eye tells me will make a beautiful picture. And to me, beautiful wedding pictures are emotional, meaningful, glamourous and fun! I work very hard at instilling each and every one of my pictures with one or more of these qualities. And I never stop either, from the moment I arrive to the second I leave! I’m constantly on the look out for interesting compositions and photo opportunities, using all my experience and skill to photograph your entire wedding day with the maximum creativity and the minimum of fuss. There’s nothing better than capturing a real moment, a real expression, something you can believe in and hold onto forever. My goal is to ensure that your wedding pictures are natural, informal and a whole lot of fun. And that they make you smile warmly in years to come, every time you look at them. Please do have a look at my past weddings (click the ARCHIVES button on the top menu bar).
In addition to all the spontaneous, candid shots, I also like to purposefully create beautiful pictures. Pictures with a wow factor! To do this I’ll step forward when required to expertly direct whoever I’m photographing – suggest different ideas, where to be, how to stand – to make sure everyone is looking their best. With me as your photographer, you’re going to get the best of all worlds. Please continue to browse my website and feel free to email me at anytime.
