Wedding Photographer Edinburgh

Philip Stanley Dickson is a highly experienced wedding photographer, who shoots weddings in Edinburgh, all over Scotland, and Scarborough!

The perfect PSD Photography Wedding requires many things to come together at the same time - a fun-loving couple who would rather enjoy more precious time with their guests on the day than be away for hours getting repetitive photos taken; the most highly experienced and technically-able photographer to cope with all weather and lighting scenarios and every tricky venue; a highly detailed venue visit, walking through your day to gain an understanding of how you want it to be; developing a meticulous plan before the wedding for good weather and bad to ensure that no photography related decisions fall on you during the day; incredible people skills to ensure the smooth flowing of the day, just as you planned, with every guest left amazed at how easily the photographer has handled things; someone who has a natural understanding of the day allowing those small moments to be captured, the ones you didn’t even know happened; someone who is trusted by Edinburgh’s biggest venues, through years of top-level performance; and of course, your wedding - every single wedding is treated as a unique event by me.

Since 2008, Philip has provided professional wedding photography services to happy couples across Edinburgh and Scotland

The PSD Photography style is to stand back and document things as they happen. Where needed Philip will step in to organise strong shots, like a confetti tunnel, or family groups. He is exceptionally skilled at getting these things done quickly and easily. And above all, keeping everyone calm on what is a massively important day. Stress free people equals natural, relaxed photos - simple!

  • We are delighted to have chosen Phil to be our wedding photographer. We knew he would be the perfect choice after seeing his relaxed style of pictures and he did not disappoint on the day. He captured it beautifully, we have had lots of positive comments on the shots from friends and family. As well as being very down to earth and friendly he is very organised and professional

    Liz & Ben
  • We couldn’t be happier with our wedding pictures Phil was amazing on the day, we are still amazed how he managed to get some of the photographs without us noticing, our day was captured brilliantly, we would recommend Phil in an instant thank you for sharing our day with us.

    Vicky & Gary
  • We were delighted with the service we received from Phil from start to finish. Like many couples, we met with a few photographers to gather quotes and hear what they could offer - on meeting Phil, choosing our photographer became a very easy decision. It was clear from our initial meeting that Phil had a wealth of experience, and gave real attention to detail. He carefully planned out with us where he would be at every point though the day, along with any particular pictures we wanted, so we could relax on the day knowing he had everything in hand. It was clear that our happiness was his first priority, and his friendly but professional manner put us well at our ease. On the big day itself, I remember staff at the venue (who are familiar with many photographers from around Scotland) assuring us we’d chosen well - saying Phil was, “One of the good ones”. They weren’t wrong there! He has an amazing eye for a good shot, and we were delighted with the images he captured for us.

    Martha & Clive
  • From the moment we met Phil we knew he would do a perfect job at capturing our special day, we felt like we had known him for years, he made us so relaxed. At the venue visit Phil was very thorough, explaining his (flexible) plans for the day which showed us he understood the natural and fun photos we were looking for.

    On the wedding day, Phil arrived at my parents house and immediately made everyone feel comfortable with his friendly manner. Once at the venue Phil was very discrete but captured some amazing, very special shots, and all our guests commented on what ‘a lovely guy’.

    We cannot recommend PSD Photography enough for your wedding day, Phil is such a down to earth, friendly man who will ensure your day is one to remember.

    Lynsey & David
  • Choose Phil if you want natural, stunning pictures of your wedding day and a relaxed professional approach on the day. We can’t recommend him enough and all our guests loved him.

    Jennifer & Paul
  • Phil we wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for being so fantastic on our wedding day! You put us at ease, made us laugh and we had the most amazing day! We have had so many positive comments from family and friends about how lovely you were. The photographs you took exceeded our expectations, we love them. Everyone has been suggesting their favourites for our album, it’s so hard to choose due to the volume of brilliant shots! We highly recommend you to friends who are engaged, you made our day so special and we have lasting memories preserved in the photos you took which really captured our day so perfectly.

    Lia & Ronnie
  • Phil was much more than just a wedding photographer - he was a huge help in planning and timing our day, and a tireless ‘fixer’ on the day including rounding up relatives and making sure everyone was in the right place at the right time! He was extremely well organised and did a really thorough venue visit with us beforehand to work out the best photo spots, come rain or shine.

    We and our guests were amazed at how quick and fuss-free the photos were. The group shots were done in no time, and we hardly noticed Phil taking pictures during the day - yet somehow he’s captured the most stunning shots, right down to details like the exchange of rings during our ceremony. We love the natural look of the photos and the way they capture the feel of the day.

    All in all, a fantastic service and the results are better than we ever imagined. We’ve already been recommending Phil to anyone who will listen… As soon as we hear someone’s engaged, our first words are not ‘congratulations’ but ‘have you got a wedding photographer yet?

    Kate & Stuart
  • Phil, just to say a huge thanks for everything on Sunday. We had a truly amazing day and you were just excellent. After getting to know you over the past few weeks, you felt like a friend. Hope you enjoyed it too. We are so glad we picked you. Our best wishes and a million thanks.

    Lisa & Chris
  • Totally stunned at the most amazing wedding photos I could ever have asked for… Thanks PSD photography!

    Hannah & Jonathan
  • Thanks to Phil for giving us some wonderful memories of our wedding. Phil was excellent throughout the day, making sure neither of us were bothered by minor details regarding our photographs and helping to coordinate the larger groups and making sure we got all the shots we wanted. He really captured some great moments throughout the day as well as some fab ‘posed’ photos. Phil is so down to earth and calming and couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Thanks again Phil, for everything!

    Ruth & David
  • Hi Phil, Just thought I’d let you know how amazing the response has been to your photos. Everyone has commented on how great they are - you really captured the essence of the night and everyone thinks what a fabulous job you did.

    Nikki & Alex
  • Thank you for the fantastic photos you took of our wedding. They are a beautiful record of our day, and we are looking forward to putting the album together. We both really appreciate the support you gave us in the run-up to the wedding and your calming influence throughout!

    Becky & Dan
  • Phil provided a really outstanding service at our wedding. He made us very comfortable throughout the day and also made sure that everything was in place for our family/group photo shoots. The pictures look absolutely amazing and perfectly capture the atmosphere of the day! We highly recommend Phil’s service.

    Kathrin & Stuart
  • We were very impressed with Phil from our initial meeting and engagement shoot, through to our consultation when our photos were ready. Phil made us feel extremely comfortable and relaxed so we could enjoy our special day. Most importantly the photos are excellent and have captured the fun and spirit of our day. A pleasure to work with, and if we had the excuse to do it again, we would definitely call Phil.

    Brooke & Phil
  • We are very impressed with our wedding photos, our most precious moments of our wedding day have been captured perfectly. Phil was very flexible and managed to capture all our group and couple photos in the very short period of time we allocated to him during the day! Phil was unobtrusive yet was able to capture so many aspects of our wedding, it was lovely to see some of the moments we missed ourselves. Thank you so much for providing us with such a fantastic record of our amazing day.

    Laura & Iain
  • Our photographs are absolutely fantastic and we are over the moon with them. Everyone on the day was so impressed with you, saying how lovely you are and what an amazing photographer you are. We hardly even noticed you on the day! I honestly don’t remember seeing you at all during the ceremony and yet we have amazing photos from it. You have captured every part of the day so well and you made us both feel so relaxed when faced with the camera lens! We honestly cannot thank you enough. You have done a fantastic job and we have already starting recommending you to our friends that are getting married! Thank you so much!

    Sarah & Louis
  • Phil was friendly but professional throughout the lead up to the wedding, the big day itself and afterwards. He took a lot of time to help us plan things as much in advance as we could to take the pressure off on the day itself. We were very happy with the level of service and the end result and will treasure our photos for years to come.

    Natalie & Eric
  • My husband and I would like to say a HUGE “Thank You” to you for photographing our very special day. From the moment we met you we knew u’d do a great job however you exceeded our expectations by far! Our pictures are amazing, so natural. We both said we didn’t want to be stressed out with all the photos but you made it completely stress free. Everyone commented on how great you were and how it seemed like you weren’t even their taking the picture, you made Tam and I feel calm and relaxed just the way we both wanted it to be. Now we’ve been faced with the difficulty of choosing pictures to go into our album….which seems like the hardest decision ever as we love ALL our photos. It goes without saying you are a pretty awesome photographer and a great down to earth guy, I will definitely be recommending PSD Photography to all my friends and family.

    Tracy & Tam
  • Our wedding photos exceeded all expectations. PSD captured every moment which told a beautiful story and will be treasured for eternity.

    Phil knew exactly what we were after and had such a creative flair which really showed our venue to its fullest potential. Phil was so friendly and relaxed which helped me as the bride to relax and enjoy the moment.

    Forever grateful!

    Yasmein & Blair
