Hi I'm Ricky Baillie, an award winning international wedding photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Id love to hear all about your wedding!
I'm a professional wedding Photographer based in Scotland, covering the whole of the UK and internationally. I absolutely love what I do as i have been able to turn my passion into a business. So a little about me... Before I was a wedding photographer I owned a coffee shop here in the center of Edinburgh. I can make a mean flat white with awesome latte art and a cracking Eggs Benny! Behind me is my amazing Greek wife, Lia and our two gorgeous, daughters, Elle & Sienna. Three women in the house with that fiery Mediterranean temper...Yes It gets crazy! I've been taking photos for 10 years and discovered my love for portrait photography when my kids arrived. Photographing them is a joy as its all real emotion, this is why love shooting weddings.
I photograph each wedding with a creative documentary approach, allowing me to tell your story in the most natural and relaxed way. Basically speaking, I get creative from the sidelines, leaving you to enjoy each other and have fun on the day! My aim is to capture your personalities and the love you have for each other, documenting all those real and unstaged moments that are so special to you.
I have a passion for travelling, something I've been lucky to take with me into my photography business. I've shot weddings in Greek Islands, Italy, Africa and Canada. Whether you are getting married at home or abroad, Id love to hear from you!
We are so grateful that Ricky agreed to come all the way out to Kenya to shoot our wedding. Having looked through his portfolio online we were expecting some great photos, but he completely blew those expectations away. The pictures he has produced are absolutely incredible, as he artfully captured many moments that we were too busy to notice, and now have the luxury of looking back on with fondness. We simply cannot recommend Ricky highly enough. Magic.
We always admired Ricky's pictures on social media, he has an amazing eye for a great picture. So when we got engaged we knew instantly that we wanted Ricky to capture our wedding day. Ricky was so discreet on the day, we did not even notice where he was. He was so professional and friendly to all our guest and along with his gorgeous wife Lia they make an amazing team. Ricky's pictures captured our day from beginning to end, looking through them (pretty much every week so far) brings the whole day back to life. The detail that goes into his editing is incredible. Unlike some photographers he hand picks the best selection and presents them beautifully.
Our family and friends loved the pictures and we would highly recommend Ricky to capture any special moment in your life. Absolutely one of the best decisions we made was to book Ricky.
We saw Ricky's photos way before we decided to get married. Being Greeks living abroad, we have chosen our wedding to take place on the scenic, tiny Greek island of Paxi. Ricky was a natural choice. The only thing was to find out that he was not booked on that day.
Indeed, Ricky was available and he planned to arrive two days before the ceremony, just to make sure he knows his way around and discover all the secret spots for some very special shots. Ricky shot three days non-stop; our family breakfast, the rehearsal dinner, a boat trip planned for our guests, and of course the ceremony, the party and a next day session only for the two of us, the newlyweds.
Ricky is truly an amazing photographer. He managed to be everywhere: He climbed on rooftops, he jumped into the sea with his camera, he resisted the burning sun, always being polite, smiley and taking the most amazing photos someone could wish for.
A year later, we still look often at the photos and we feel like living the moment again. We really can’t recommend him enough. Book him now!
It was really important to us that we picked a photographer who could capture all the important moments our day for us to look back on in years to come. We could not be happier with our choice! Ricky caught every emotion of the day including some special we didn't see. We have already loved looking back through our photos over the past year. Ricky’s creativity and artistic eye is obvious in every photo. We’ve seen him work at other weddings too and he is a master at blending into the background whilst still making sure he is in the right place at the right time for all those candid moments. Thank you Ricky for capturing our day so beautifully!
From the moment we met Ricky we knew that he was enthusiastic and committed to the job. On our wedding day we barley knew he was there and so many people commented on how friendly and professional he was. I was very excited to see the pictures and they did not disappoint. The photographs are outstanding. As we looked through them we were laughing and crying and really remembering the atmosphere of the day, which Ricky captured perfectly. Since then I have looked through my photographs countless times, they are very special to us. Our family and friends are equally impressed with the photographs and we are always asked who our photographer was. We are so thankful to Ricky and we would highly recommend him. He has a true passion for capturing a cracking picture - the man is a photographic genius!
