About Ricky Baillie:I specialise in artistic documentary wedding photography, so ultimately my goal is to capture all the special moments of your wedding as it unfolds with a creative and artistic approach. I'm a ridiculous perfectionist and my harshest critic. I pour all my energy and soul into every wedding so that I am able give you a set of compelling and visually impacting images that even a complete stranger can connect with.
I love shooting weddings, and I do feel quite humbled that couples choose me to be a part of such a significant celebration in their lives. When my wife gave birth to the first of our two beautiful daughters, I instantly became obsessed with capturing real and unstaged emotion, be it a smile, a giggle or their ever developing personalities. It's the same with weddings. I get to be a "fly on the wall" freezing all these real and natural moments as they happen that you will be able to treasure for years to come.
My documentary style approach means that I can tell the story of your big day by getting creative from the sidelines, leaving you to just enjoy each other and have fun on the day. This also allows the wedding party to just relax and be themselves, and this is when the best moments are captured, (when you don't know I'm there)! There are however certain points during the day when I do need to step in to direct and create unique portraits (just the two of you together)!
Behind me is my gorgeous Greek wife, Lia, and our two little girls, Elle & Sienna. Lia will often be my assistant (a creative director if you like)! We make a great team and both love being part of such an amazing day.
I am based in Edinburgh, Scotland, but can shoot your wedding anywhere in the world.
