Yup - That's me and my man IN FRONT of the camera in Canada

My life outside wedding photography.

Hi, I’m Vicki.

I prefer dogs to humans, outside to inside, silliness to sensibleness. And if it were up to me, I’d live naked and outside, like Mowgli. 

I live in my cosy home just outside Edinburgh, with my two rescue cocker spaniels, Archie and Izzy. Now there are dog people, and there are dog people. I’m what is known as ‘a dog person’. If there was a neurosurgeon drowning and a dog drowning, I’d save the dog. Dogs are Jesus. 

I find a rare sense of stillness in nature. I’m always off on long walks through the woods with Izzy and Archie, over the hills and far away; gradually finding peace and solitude in the company of my little pups. 

Oh yeah *slaps forehead* I also have a boyfriend of 7 years, Jordan. He’s one of my top 3 best friends (he might even take the title of soul mate if Archie wasn’t around!) Naw, but I love him to bits. We never even bother going out to be honest, we’re just so content in each other’s company, just us two and “our babies”.

I love to travel. Especially around Canada, to where I’m magnetically drawn in the most soul-deep kinda way. And I actually bloody love an airport! I like people-watching, and random conversations with strangers; not just waiting for my turn to talk, but really listening. Learning about their life, hearing their stories.

And I guess that’s the reason I love being a wedding photographer so much. Because I get to meet people, share stories with them, and be a part of their lives for a little while. It’s one of the greatest honours I’ll ever have. Not just to be a part of such an incredible day, but to be the one who gets to tell the story.

  • A very talented photographer and a very charming person! Always good at making people feel comfortable and at ease in front of the lens. She is great value as well - double the quality for about half the price of most other photographers!

  • Vicki is one of my oldest friends and she played a massive part in my *updated* proposal, capturing everything through her camera in the beautiful way she does. Thankfully, she was available to photograph my wedding and I am so happy she was. She travelled to Gretna Green and made me feel unbelievably wonderful all day, as both my friend and photographer. The photos she captured of the day are gorgeous. Vicki’s ability to capture the moments in between the “posed” photos without being noticed is truly a skill not many have! She is truthfully the ninja of the photography world. Receiving the finished photos of the day cemented how lucky I was to get Vicki for our wedding day. Every photo captured the love and happiness of the day. Each one was personalised and original to us. I only wish there were two of Vicki so she could have been in the photos with us and taking them. If anyone is looking for a photographer for their wedding I cannot recommend Vicki enough. She was astounding from start to finish and beyond and you will miss out if you don’t get her to capture your special day.

  • Vic the art you create through photography is truly a gift. They say photographs can capture more than a thousand words, and that couldn’t be more close to the truth with your photography. I’ve dreamed of my wedding day since I was a little girl. I never believed in my wildest dreams that my fairytale would one day come true and exceed above all my expectations. Vic you have a wonderful talent of capturing these once in a life time moments through your photography. People tell you that your wedding day goes by in the blink of an eye and that could not be more true. Through your amazing photography we have been able to live that day over and over again. I honestly didn’t believe it was possible to capture such precious moments as they happen, but you exceeded capturing these moments. From the many tears to endless laughs and the love that surrounded us on our wedding, you captured every single moment! Evan & I are beyond grateful that we were able to bring you all the way to Canada for our special day. You truly have a very special gift, one that deserves a world of credit for. We will cherish our photographs for a life time and I look forward to the day Evan and I get to share these beautiful photos with our children. Vic, we cannot thank you enough for making our day so special. Your photography matches the type of person you. Passionate, driven, strong and determined. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we cherish not only these photographs but you as well. Thank you for coming into our lives not only as our photographer but as our dear friend from across the world. Xoxo, Love The Bloodoffs

  • What a fantastic experience we had with Vic for our family photos. She was super welcoming, made us all feel very comfortable and was great at keeping the kids entertained. The result can be seen in the photos which are superb and all very natural and fun. We received them more quickly than expected and have framed them all over our house! Will be getting more done soon. Thanks!

  • We cannot recommend Vicki highly enough. She was an absolute superstar on our wedding day and we are completely delighted with our photos. With Vicki, you get so much more than a photographer - from the moment she arrived in the morning, she brought an amazing energy to the day and was willing to help in pretty much every way to ensure our day ran as smoothly as possible. This included stepping in to fix bridesmaid dresses, helping pin up my dress when the bustle failed, helping groomsmen to put on buttonholes, helping to keep the day running to time and so much more. Vicki got on so well with the bridal party and guests at the wedding that it felt like she was just another guest there to celebrate with us. Her relaxed and fun demeanour put as at ease and made the photo taking section of the day a real unexpected joy. Vicki - from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding day ❤️. You are a truly talented photographer and a real asset for any bride and groom on their wedding day. Love, Rachel and Tony x

  • Vicki was our photographer for our wedding in September this year and she was absolutely amazing. She made myself and Alan feel completely at ease and captured the day perfectly. All the wedding guests keep saying how great she was and even one of my friends has since booked her for her wedding. If you're thinking of about booking Vicki, you won't regret it. I can not recommend her enough!

  • You do not just hire a wedding photographer when you hire Victoria, you hire a guardian angel who will ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible as well as make you feel beautiful inside and out. We were completely blessed to have found such a talented and absolutely wonderful person to make our special day as amazing as it was. I suffer very badly with anxiety and body confidence and I was very nervous about getting our photos taken. Through out the day Victoria made the experience so calm and warm and both my husband and I spend the day laughing and smiling as well as feeling excited to see the wonderful pictures she has taken. Thank you Victoria for being you. We honestly really appreciate everything you did for us to give us the dream wedding experience. - Mr and Mrs Gilbert

  • Finding the right words to describe Vicki... Vicki is an absolute diamond. When choosing our wedding photographer I had practically chose, purely from her photos, her talent speaks for itself. Anyone can take a photo, but what she creates is a memory, she captures so much emotion in her photos. She has an eye for the tiniest of details, but these details matter the most. When we met Vicki for the first time we left her house with absolutely no doubt in our minds that she was the one for us. We never met or even considered another photographer. Over the time from booking her to receiving our final wedding photos, she has always felt more like a friend. What better than to have a friend photograph your wedding. We now have so many memories capture from our day including announcing our pregnancy to all our family and friends (safe to say Vicki will be doing our newborn shoot too). She is so professional. To anyone who considers booking her, please do not think twice, you will not regret it. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, our photos are incredible, as are you. All our love, The Anderson's xxx

  • If you are planning your wedding, do yourself a favour - book Vicki! She will honestly be the best money you will spend. Not only are her photographs stunning, she is the kindest and funniest person. An absolute heart of gold, but also a wealth of wedding insider knowledge. Also a completely cool head in a crisis (like sewing on a popped button to my wedding dress whilst I was wearing it 5 minutes before we had to leave the house!) Everyone on the day loved her, she made everyone feel so calm and relaxed, meaning the photographs are so natural and stunning. She bonded amazingly with our 2 year old and captured her happy and cheeky personality perfectly. We can't thank you enough Vicki, you are a diamond. We love you and we love our wedding gallery more than words can say.
