Hi! (big hugs)
It’s so nice to meet you. I’m Anne Johnston, a Scottish wedding and landscape photographer with a buzz for life and I’m on a mission to help you create the best memories with all the feels!
Cheese-fest? Yes, I know. But I know what it’s like to want to make the most of life. I had life-saving heart surgery at 18 months old (it worked, yay!) and was adopted into the most amazing family of 6 brothers and sisters. I appreciate the special moments in every single day and I want to help you do that too with your photography. And I also love cheese.
An 80s child, I’ve been a geek since waaaay before geeks were cool. I was one of the few girls in computing class. I had the thick bottle-end glasses many times over. But helloooo laser surgery. 20/20 vision for the win! I’ve always loved to teach techy stuff, starting with teaching past colleagues how to use computers in the late 90s before they were part of life as we know it.
In 2011 my passion for photography kicked off and by 2014 Anne Johnston Photography was born. Now from my home in Forfar I’m owning the geek thing with my wee hamster sidekick. You’ll find him on my Instagram Stories on Sundays.
But enough about me. I don’t want you being like all yawn already. Let’s explore how I can help you.
You want to create your own memories…
These days good quality cameras are so accessible but if you leave them on automatic you’re never guaranteed your photos will be any better than if you use your mobile phone. I don’t want you to be living in fear of your camera’s buttons any longer! I love to teach people just like you in Angus, Dundee and Perth with my 1:1 Photography for Beginners course. I also have some free stuff for you on my blog and YouTube channel to help you get started.
“Well……………….had my one2one beginners course with Anne Johnston Photography yesterday. It was a bit like Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen turning up, throwing open my wardrobe and pointing out all these new clothes that had been hiding there but I couldn’t see! A really useful use of time that has me binning the Auto and getting on the Manual setting. I am quite surprised at the confidence this has given me to start using my camera properly. Highly recommended.”Graeme Kirkpatrick
Is your camera giving you the fear factor?
Sign up for Start Shooting on Manual, my free 5 part weekly course that will break down the jargon and help you take back control over your camera.
We go way deeper in my 1-2-1 tuition but if it's not the right time for you to work with me 1-2-1, this will help you get started.
You’re getting hitched in Angus, Dundee or Perth…
You’ve met the man of your dreams, you’ve set your wedding date and are in full on planning mode but the thought of posing in front of a camera fills you with dread. You hate having your photos taken and you don’t want to be away from your guests for hours on end.
What you really want is to have a stunning high quality wedding album with all the feels and a photographer that gets you as a couple. You want to have a few photos with your new husband to cherish that you’d be proud to put on your living room walls minus the cheesy poses and forced smiles. You want to look at your album with tears of joy as you remember all the emotions of your day. You want to see all the tiny details that you agonised over and you want to remember all your guests having fun with you.
I love to work with couples in Angus, Dundee and Perth just like you. Telling stories naturally with beautiful photography is my speciality. Check out my blogs with wedding tips, real weddings and more and find out how I can help you on your special day.
“Anne is just a delight to work with. From the moment of our first enquiry right through to the weeks after the wedding she was lovely to deal with, extremely professional, flexible and really went the extra mile to get to know us as a couple and family and understand what we were trying to achieve with capturing the mood of our wedding. The final results speak for themselves, the pictures are absolutely wonderful and really capture the whole essence of our day. We absolutely would not hesitate to recommend Anne to any couple getting married and we were delighted with our choice of photographer”Rebecca and Rob, married at the Glen Clova Hotel, Angus
You want your house to really feel like a home…
When I met my Fiancé a few years ago we embarked on a wee skills exchange. He’d teach me how to hillwalk so I could see the beauty of Scotland from our mountain tops and I’d teach him how to get the best out of his camera. Little did we know where that one would lead haha!
From our stunning coastlines to our spectacular vistas, we all have places that are special in our hearts and I want to help you experience a little glimpse of that every day.
In my Scotland Portfolio you’ll find a gorgeous collection of imagery available as Fine Art Framed Prints and Luxury Canvas Wraps.
The bit where I brag… humbly
I became a member of the Content Marketing Academy in the summer of 2016. It’s an amazing business community of entrepreneurs and marketing professionals that have helped me grow my business.
Since then I’ve immersed myself in a whole new way of learning and marketing, joined an accountability group, produced this brand new website and launched my YouTube channel.
