About JM Photography & Video

Why should our clients choose you? When you choose JM Photography & Video, you will get the benefit of experience, technique and professionalism. Reading some of my 5 star BIDVINE reviews, almost 70, you will find out how others were delighted to get the results for which you too, hope and want! JM Photography & Video have been in business since 2007. I provide professional wedding photography & videography + portrait & commercial services in Scotland & North of England. I have worked throughout Europe and produced images & video for various publications. Two other photographers / videographers are part of the JM Photography & Video team. Please see for yourself my reviews on BIDVINE. Almost 70 x 5 star reviews will tell you what clients think about my service. People comment frequently about my professional, friendly & relaxed approach, which puts them at ease, and makes them delighted with the results. You will also find people commenting on the good value for money I offer. Superb professional photography & video equipment is coupled with experience, flair and a successful track record of large & small weddings. I particularly like to use natural light and I will always make the best use of the opportunities your venue offers for great photography and video. What’s the secret to taking a great photograph? To take a good photograph is to recognise a good photograph, something people do the world over, every minute of every day, mainly using their phones. To take photographs professionally means not just recognising a good photograph, but bringing together a combination of knowledge and skills. For weddings, it’s about understanding light indoors and outdoors, using high quality equipment, technique and composition skills to capture not just a few, but hundreds of great shots during the wedding day. Weddings are not always like the Magazines but are hard work and require good organisational and interpersonal skills from the photographer and patience to capture what the clients want. Difficult circumstances arise frequently, challenging the photographer to manage the photoshoot; this is where experience is so valuable to get the results within the time available. What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project? Details of the wedding venue(s), how many guests, times, what shots do the clients want, do they want formal and casual photos? Also, how do they feel about being in front of a camera-is there anything the photographer should look out for/avoid? What do you love most about your job? I like meeting people and working hard, swiftly and carefully to produce results that people will treasure for a lifetime. What inspired you to start your own business? The majority of photographers are self employed. I have been a photographer all of my life and so it was a natural progresssion to start my own business in 2007. I love weddings, portraiture, studio photography, events and magazine photoshoots. I am also a trained videographer with professional photo/ video editing and production skills. What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19? During restrictions, I have shot 24 weddings and outdoor portraiture safely. Over two days, I shot portraits of all staff of a Glasgow organisation for a fun 2021 calendar. I follow all venue safety protocols, masking, sanitising, social distancing.

Joy H.'s review on Dec 02, 2020

John made our wedding day perfect. He was so brilliant at his work and made it all fun. The end results ie:- d.v.d.'s, u.s.b stick and photo album were exceptional. The quality of John's work is amazing and his cost is so reasonable. I would recommend his work over and over again. John made our day very special. VERY prompt service and kept us updated all the way. Thank you so much John!!

Fraser M.'s review on Mar 09, 2020

My wife and I used John's services for our wedding back in October. We found the booking process to be very straight forward with John keeping us up to date with every aspect before the wedding. On the day John was present and set up on time and performed his duties impeccably. We were very happy with the pictures and also his ideas. The photos arrived exactly on time and, as with all John's correspondence, were very presentable. John's personality and professionalism was second to none and we were also very pleased with the price he quoted.

Sharon W.'s review on Feb 23, 2020

John was very professional and made us all feel very relaxed on the big day. We remember John from hardly being able to remember him - we were surprised at the number of photographs were in our final pack as he was very low key. He captured all of the special moments and responded well to our requests even in the madness of timing issues and premature arrival of evening guests. Overall really nice person and a total gent!

Jerry M.'s review on Feb 23, 2020

John was fantastic - from start to finish he was brilliant at getting the pictures we wanted but without intruding on the day. His photo skills are great and the pictures came quickly. Would 100% recommend and would use him again.

Carie B.'s review on Feb 18, 2020

Absolutely terrific service from john, as we live miles away everything had to be done via email and quick meeting at the wedding, but John knew what he was doing and advised us on poses and background to make the photos even lovelier, so very pleased we picked John, photos are beautiful.

Sahra P.'s review on Feb 17, 2020

John welcomed me to his home to discuss my Wedding and the type of photographs I wanted. John had an amazing selection of Wedding albums for me to look through and I quickly made up my mind that he was the photographer I wanted. John kept in contact prior to the Wedding and on the Wedding Day he arrived early as he said he would. John was so discreet and accommodating on our Wedding Day. Our photographs and video are wonderful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend John, he is extremely reliable and professional. Prior to our Wedding our venue went into liquidation and I had contacted John to inform him of this, he was able to suggest other venues to contact and was accommodating when we unfortunately had to change the date of our Wedding due to this. Thank you again John for our lovely Wedding photographs and video.

Naomi D.'s review on Feb 17, 2020

John took the photos for our wedding day. We had a great day and now have some brilliant photos to remember our time by. John was very kind from beginning to end. Our service ran over and this meant we should have had less time for our photos after as it had used up alot of the time we had booked but John was willing to stay longer and took all the photos with family and friends that we had wanted taken after our own photo shoot. This meant he had less time to himself between us and another client he already had booked. We are very grateful for his kindness and generosity of his personal time.

Thank you, Naomi & Stephen, for your thoughtful and kind review about your wedding photography. Your service at the Church of the Nazareen, Parkhead was truly uplifting. It was also great to do your photoshoot in beautiful Tollcross Park, Glasgow where the roses were still blooming in October and the trees were showing their lovely Autumnal tints. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness! John
