A Little About Us
super-relaxed, joyful moments
Your wedding day is one of the most unique and special times a couple and their loved ones will share and we love to capture that joy and celebration with a laid-back candid style.
Lauren photographed her first wedding back in Austin, Texas in 2009. There she met a young Scottish philosophy student who brought her back to Scotland as his wife. She started her business over again first in Aberdeen, and then in Edinburgh.
A few years later, Lauren’s brother-in-law brought home a gorgeous lass with dark curls and fine art photography degree. Katy quickly became a part of the family and after some time Lauren asked if she would work as her second shooter.
It immediately became clear that they made a fantastic team and over last four years they have photographed over a hundred weddings together and have since decided to team up and start their new business as the McGlynn Sisters.
Lauren loves fancy coffee, fancy beer, vegetarian food, cooking for people, and taking her kids to outdoor places. When she’s not photographing weddings she’s usually hanging out with her family and exploring new places around Edinburgh, cycling, yoga and reading the news.
Katy loves walking her dog through the park, a fish supper at the beach, and having countless cups of coffee while chatting with her husband. When she’s not photographing weddings she’s usually at home curled up on the couch with her dog Nelson.
'Lauren and Katy were top notch and also really fun to hang out with. I feel like we can look back on the day and relive each part because they have captured the atmosphere perfectly.'
'We loved our photos and the action-shot vibe! When the sun was setting Lauren suggested we go to Holyrood Park to take some pictures and it was lovely to get some time on our own, even though we were only gone from the party for about 20 minutes!'
'The photo of the two of us walking out of the ceremony is maybe my new favourite picture ever - it is a perfect visual representation of how that day felt for me, and is definitely ending up in a frame in our house. Frankly, it’s going to be hard not to become those people with photos of our wedding plastered all over our apartment! Cannot thank you enough!'
'I would say that James and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera but Lauren and Katy made us feel very relaxed. We absolutely love our photos, and I find that even now I go back to look at them and find something new to love.'
'It felt like working with someone we had both known for a long time. The photography shoot itself was extremely fun and relaxed. Lauren took care to demonstrate how we could position ourselves while giving us the space to show our natural personalities. Lauren is so friendly and funny that we spent most of the time laughing and enjoying ourselves.'
