Welcome to Alan Watson Photography
Alan is a full time professional photographer and is based in his studio in Saltcoats, North Ayrshire.
Being based in Ayrshire with its amazing venues and of course the beautiful west coast means we don’t need to travel far for amazing venues that Ayrshire has to offer.
We have worked in most of the top venues around Scotland and even ventured as far as Northern England for couples who have required our services. We have offered our service to couples getting married in the Caribbean – well, we’re still waiting!
Born and raised in Kilwinning, Alan moved to Irvine when he was 9. Alan was brought up with photography as both his father and uncle were excellent photographers, covering weddings and family portraits, so you could say that photography is in Alan’s blood!
Alan joined the Army aged 16 and served for 18 years before joining The Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh where he lived for another 18 years before returning to his beloved Ayrshire.
Alan has always loved photography and decided to open his own wedding photography business in 2010.
Alan specialises in Weddings, family portraits and is also brave enough to do Kids and Newborn photography.
People often ask Alan why specialise in Wedding Photography and don’t you find it stressful?
Alan’s answer is quite simple.
I am very much a people person and enjoy working and interacting with people.
With Wedding Photography you get the opportunity to capture those special moments on a day that should never be forgotten. The day itself will fly past but I can capture those special moments in time for you and you’ll have those memories always.
Is Wedding Photography stressful? – Not at all, in the past I have worked in some very stressful environments and dealt with very awkward situations but a Wedding Day is a day that should be enjoyed not only by the Bride & Groom and their family and friends but also by the “Team” working for you to deliver a very special day indeed.
