We were celebrating last night after one of Jay’s wedding photographs won a a Certificate of Merit at the Scottish Master Photographers Association’s annual awards night.

The awards ceremony was held in North Queensferry and was attended by many of Scotland’s top photographers.

The day-long event included seminars by two of the UK’s leading social photographers, Bella West FMPA and Simon John FMPA. It was really interesting to hear how they developed their very distinctive photography styles.

Jay was awarded a Certificate of Merit in recognition of “outstanding achievement for originality and technical excellence” in the Contemporary Wedding category. The image was taken at a wedding at Fingask Castle last August.

As always it was a great social event and it was fantastic to catch up with old friends. We’d like to thank the organisers for all their hard work and congratulate all the award winners on their well-deserved success.

The Master Photographers Association is the UK’s only trade body exclusively for full-time professional wedding, portrait and commercial photographers. The association has 1,800 fully qualified members throughout the UK.

Below is Jay’s image…


Christina and Jay, what a wonderful photograph, it deserves to win. Well Done, look forward to seeing you again soon. Angus
