About Us

Girvan based Covering Ayrshire, to Stranraer, Kilmarnock, Newton Stewart, Largs and Glasgow to name a few.

Anthony Dawson Photography has proven popular with our clients over the years of building the photography business. Believing in image quality and quality service we continue to be delighted to work alongside clients with big weddings, unique and personal weddings like can been seen featured in a abbey ruin, to small intimate affairs.

Due to our location we are usefully placed within a stones throw of South West Scotland’s best wedding venues from The Brig O Doon, Savoy Park Hotel, or over into Dumfries and Galloway with the increasingly popular Friars Carse Hotel, Easterbrook Hall or Stranraer with The Castle Hotel (or any McMillan Hotel).

But we are not limited to just South West Scotland, we are well travelled across the UK photographing weddings, and have photographed weddings as far flung as Greece, as well as receiving enquiries for many other destination weddings.

Pricing

There’s 2 ways we price wedding photography, bespoke, or simplicity!

We like to keep things simple with our wedding photography prices, so rather than a range of packages with various albums and combinations of things you dont want or need, we offer you photography, and your photos presented finished digitally.

Then if you want an album, prints, canvas, or a statue of david, you can purchase it as or when you are ready.

Simple as that!

2 Photographers?

Want 2 photographers coverage on your big day? get in touch.

Any photographer that seconds for us is experienced in photographing their own weddings, making them less a novelty bag carrier like some photographer packages, but instead a real asset to photographing a wedding. Being fully experienced in working with people, knows all about staging images, posing people, observing eye and experience allowing them to predict unscripted moments, and a whole world of tricks that are learnt to face the many challenges a wedding poses to a photographer.

But most of all, they can work on their own initiative without my direction, making them a real asset to any wedding.

Monday-Thursday Small Weddings

I have a special offer for small civil ceremonies/weddings covering the ceremony and groups only and not exceeding 2 hours from start to finish, inclusive of an online gallery to purchase from and all your images delivered uploaded to the secure server to download.

An exceptionally popular service used by many and praised for its value for money, simplicity and exceptional service seen in all packages.

We also cater for larger midweek weddings, working on an hourly rate and finished digital images included.
All we need to know is the date, location and how long you would like us to photograph your wedding for.

Know What You Want?

We are happy to build a package around you and your personal tastes, and consult you on your wedding to get the most. To do this though we always recommend we have a face to face meeting here at the office in Girvan and encourage our clients to bring samples of anything that interests them. The advantage of no all inclusive packages = not tied to a style or supplier!

Want To Book?

Simply get in touch to arrange a meeting with us here in Girvan over a coffee (or tea, earl grey, hot), where we will talk you through your wedding, run you through our contract, take the retainer fee and answer any questions you might have. This normally goes in the way of a conversation though, its not an interview! And expect it to get off topic every once and a while.

Not Local? Wedding Tourist?

If you are far away like some of our clients who come from all over the UK and Europe to get married here in Ayrshire and Galloway, then drop us a message and we can send you the paperwork you need to fill in and forward to us with the retainer fee. We also try to make an effort to meet with you before your wedding, its not always possible but it gives you chance to know who we are.

And at any point we are only a message or a phone call away should you have any questions. If at any point you are lucky enough to be visiting the area prior to your wedding, then please get in touch! we like to make an effort to meet with our couples knowing this can often be the best way of talking you through your wedding.
