Team Thomson Photography is the husband and wife team Ken and Janet Thomson. We are professional wedding photographers based in Glasgow, Scotland. We named our business to reflect the fact that we work together to contribute our unique and complimentary skills to the final result – after all, thats what marriage is all about! Typically we both photograph your wedding, sometimes only Ken depending on your preferences and budget. Either way we always work as a team, encouraging one another and lending our special skills and expertise to your finished wedding photographs and wedding album.
Ken, principal photographer and creative force behind the business, has a great way with people, individually or in groups. With his artistic eye and photography skills, Ken is ideally qualified to be a wedding photographer – it is the job he was born to do!
Janet brings her own set of skills to the partnership. In addition to being an excellent photographer, Janet is an accomplished watercolour artist who adds a unique perspective to our coverage. Janet’s graphic arts qualifications are put to excellent use as our expert on wedding album design. Her skills in fastening buttonholes, fixing dresses and calming brides (and mums!) have helped get many wedding days off to the right start.
Our forte is unobtrusive storytelling wedding photography, catching beautiful moments in beautiful light. We will capture the emotion and the romance, seeking out the details that make your wedding unique – the venue, the dress, the flowers, the cake and, of course, the people. We won’t demand a lot of your time on your wedding day, or expect you to become our models; rather, we act like a creative “friend with a camera”. We will also ensure that the key family group photographs are taken quickly and efficiently to give you more time with your guests while still keeping mum happy! Most of all, we capture the spirit of your wedding day, recording the memories you will treasure.

P.S. for Americans considering a Scottish destination wedding – we lived in New Jersey, Chicago and Orlando USA for 11 years, returning to Ken’s home town of Glasgow in Scotland to set up our wedding photography business in 2001. Ken photographed his first wedding in the early 90s on a yacht on the Hudson River in New York, nearly falling into the water during the ceremony. The experience gained living and working in the United States and photographing weddings there has proved invaluable as Scotland is a favourite destination for American couples getting married. We are very familiar with the traditions and cultural differences between American and Scottish weddings, and can even spell correctly in US English!
