About me


Jacqui Paterson

I am originally from the Isle of Bute in the West Coast of Scotland. From an early age I have always shown a creative flair and moved to Edinburgh after leaving school to study Photography. As a student, I worked with local photographers which helped me discover my passion for Wedding Photography.

After college, I spend 3 years working on Celebrity and P&O Cruises, managing the photography department. I was incharge of all the weddings and portrait sessions onboard, as well as collecting stock photos of all the ports we stopped by at. I have been very fortunate as I have seen some amazing places including Antarctica, the Amazon Jungle and the Panama Canal.

I came back and set up Chic Photo in 2010. Chic Photo gives you natural wedding photos at affordable prices. I am comfortable shooting any style of photography from traditional, natural, contemporary, reportage, vintage or a combination of any styles to suit you.

I have been working hard to deliver an excellent service, ensuring all my brides and grooms get the best value and photos on their wedding day. I am fully qualified and insured, I’ve been shooting Weddings for over 8 years so you can relax knowing that I will be right beside you to capture all your best moments on your special day.

I am a Wedding Photographer in Falkirk but travel all over Scotland (and England too) to do my job. No destination is too far for me, even abroad – just ask through the contact form and I can work out a package for you. I have been lucky enough to shoot some amazing weddings from Scottish Castles to Rustic Barns in England and beach weddings in the Caribbean.

I am constantly working on my photography, improving and trying to be unique from other photographers.
In November 2013, I won an award for Best Wedding Photographer 2013 from Hitched.co.uk.

In January 2014, I was a finalist at the Scottish Wedding Awards for Best Photographer and in November 2014 I was also a finalist at the Scottish VOW awards.
