Price from: £80

My name is Jacob Forsyth-Davies, I am an Edinburgh based photographer and videographer with over 8 years of experience, with prices starting from £100 for event coverage and £300 for wedding coverage.

Over those years I have had the pleasure of covering dozens of balls, birthdays, galas, ceilidhs, and celebrations, as well as more unusual events, including fire festivals, placemaking workshops, food tastings, and many more.

In any event, telling the story of the event is critical to how I work, from start to finish. Whether they are small shared moments, the time going into preparation, or a big speech or performance, my goal is to make sure everything is captured in an honest, high-quality manner. With a focus on capturing authentic moments and providing unobtrusive coverage, the event will be the best it can be, and so can the photography.

Jacob was prompt and professional, and diligently got to work capturing our event without any fuss. A real pleasure to work with.

Jacob was photographing our society event and the pictures were one of the best I've seen during the 3 years I have been involved! He is able to capture the genuine emotions and vibe as well as finds unique perspectives that make the photos stand out. Recommend!!

Jacob photographed our engagement party after I was let down last minute. He was so professional and totally blended into the party, we felt so comfortable! The photos are gorgeous, they are all so natural and really capture the party. Nothing was too much trouble and he got the photos to us really quickly Thank you so much Jacob! I cannot recommend enough!

It was a great experience working together with Jacob. He photographed two events at our News From Home Film Festival. Jacob was super nice, very responsive to messages and the photos were truly professional and we received them very quickly! He really helped us create a more professional look to our events and the photos had great responses on social media. I truly recommend working together with Jacob!

Wedding Photography

I have experience photographing a wide range of different weddings, from traditional church weddings, handfastings, Asian weddings, and every one has been a unique joy to photograph. If possible before the wedding I find it very useful to have a quick meeting to talk about the venue, the schedule, and what style or type of photography would work best, and any special touches for the big day. On the day I will arrive well before any shooting starts to meet the organiser, and set up equipment. From the second the photographs are captured, they are backed up, and every piece of equipment on site has a backup just in case. Within 28 days I will send you an online gallery to review, and make sure you are happy with the images, with additional prints, photobooks and other options available. I would love to work with you and look forward to hearing from you! Jacob Forsyth-Davies

Event Photography

With many years of experience photographing balls, ceilidhs, dinners, parties, and more across the UK, I would be happy to provide photography services at your event. For me, capturing smaller candid moments as well as posed photographs is very important, and I make sure to get a nice balance of both to capture the reality of the event as it happens, especially details that may get forgotten otherwise. I will arrive at least 30 minutes before any photography to assess the venue, meet the organisers, and set up any equipment before starting, and every image is backed up from the second it is captured all the way to the final product. After the event has finished, I will have the photographs available for viewing online gallery within 3 days to review and make sure you are happy with them. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you! Jacob Forsyth-Davies

Event Videography

With many years of experience providing video coverage across the UK, I would be happy to document your event for years to come. From speedy and dramatic ceilidh's to formal dinner occasions, I aim to provide discrete coverage that captures the mood and experience of the event, without interrupting the action. Includes the price of an edited 2-3 minute summary video of the event. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you! Jacob Forsyth-Davies

Wedding Videography

When it comes to weddings, there is nothing quite like having a recording of the event to come back to again and again. I have experience providing video services a wide range of different weddings, from traditional church weddings, handfastings, Asian weddings, and each one has been a unique joy to cover. On the day I will arrive at least 30 minutes before any recording to set up, assess the venue, and meet the organisers. While I work hard to get the best coverage possible, I make sure this is not at the expense of the wedding experience for guests or the marrying parties as a priority, so you can focus on enjoying the day. Within 28 days after the wedding I will be in touch with a finished video for you to watch. If there are any changes that need making, the first revision is completely free, so you can be sure you will be getting the video you want. I would love to work with you and look forward to hearing from you! Jacob Forsyth-Davies

  • What services do you offer?

    A wide range of Photography and Videography services, specialising in Event and Wedding work

  • What style of photos do you take?

    Although it depends on the type of event and what the client is looking for, I tend to photograph an even mixture of candid, unscripted moments and posed or planned images, as well as the details of the event that make it unique.

  • Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

    I use Adobe Lightroom Galleries to provide images unless otherwise requested, as it allows for easy sharing, high-quality images, and plenty of customisation options to allow for the presentation to look as professional as possible.

  • Do you send all the photos taken?

    Unless specifically requested I only send a curated selection of the photographs covering the event honestly and evenly, for a few reasons. The primary reason is that there will be many photographs very similar, or of a similar subject. There is no need to have fifteen images of specific decoration when I can find the best one for you instead. Another reason, is that it is generally not practical to send and store often over a thousand raw images. Finally, when covering fast-paced events such as ceilidh's, I will focus on capturing the action, rather than being modest with the amount of photographs I take, and this can often result in hundreds of files to sort through in the effort to get only a few dozen images.

  • In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

    In the very unlikely event (it hasn't happened yet) that I am unable to attend an event due to unforeseen circumstances, I will get in touch with several photographers of at least equal quality and experience, so that one of them may attend the event in my place at no extra cost, or offer a full refund as an alternative.

  • How Quickly will the Photographs / Video come back?

    Typically I will have all the photographs edited, finished, and sent within 24 hours of the event. In busier periods this may not always be possible, but I can guarantee the finished photographs will be delivered within 72 hours. Video work is more variable and depends on the individual project, but I can give you a better estimation in discussing the video with you.

  • Do you have Insurance?

    I am fully insured, including equipment, liability, and indemnity insurance.

  • What if your camera breaks?

    I have a full back-up kit with me, including a spare camera body, alternative lenses, backup batteries, memory cards, and more. My camera records to two memory cards at once to provide maximum safety, and my hard drive holding the images is backed up weekly.
