The perfect photographer for couples who like to do things a bit differently

Hi I’m Jack and I specialise in creative, documentary style Wedding Photography.

I'm not a 'traditional wedding photographer' but a photographer who will come along to your wedding and take beautiful photos.

If you are looking for wedding photographs which are a wee bit different, a bit less formal and a bit less posed; I might be the photographer for you.

If you are a tiny bit shy about having your photo taken and would rather spend time on your big day with your friends and family rather than posing for formal shots; I might be the photographer for you.

If you are planning a wedding that’s a wee bit different, perhaps even a bit quirky and alternative. If you would love to have all the little details of your day captured for you to remember, (along with all the big details) and have a bit of fun at the same time. I might be the photographer for you.


Feedback on Firsthand Photography

    Jack at Firsthand Photography is fantastic! She was our photographer for our wedding and we are so happy with our photos! I would 100% recommend her. We didn't want our photos to feel too posed and didn't want to spend half our day having lots of photos taken when we could be enjoying ourselves with our friends and family. Jack is friendly and laid back and helps everyone to feel relaxed, I didn't want to feel like I had a camera pointed at me all day. The photos are lovely and Jack really managed to capture the atmosphere of the day, taking lots of informal shots. We have loved looking through all our photos. All our correspondence with Jack ahead of the wedding was really helpful. She provided all the information we needed and was happy to deal with any questions. We met with Jack a few months beforehand to run through what we wanted. After the wedding we received our photos in less than 6 weeks. End to end the service had been great, Jack is extremely professional. It was great to have Jack as part of our big day - Thank you so much!

    I couldn't recommend Jack enough as a wedding photographer. She was brilliant at every stage. Her photo style is gorgeous for one thing - she has an exceptional talent for spotting good shots and making apparently mundane things look amazing (she found a random bit of brick wall and a shabby shed at our venue and somehow turned them into pretty rustic backdrops). When she was taking the candid shots we barely noticed she was there, so it was a very unintrusive style of photography that made for some wonderfully relaxed and natural pictures, and it also meant we could focus on being in the moment (e.g. when having the ceremony etc) without being self-conscious and feeling like we were being recorded. When we had big group shots, Jack was really helpful and was able to direct anyone who needed directing in a friendly, undemanding manner. She really went out of her way to do a good job (we only realised after we got the photos that she'd somehow managed to find a balcony inside our ceremony hall and she'd been running up and down between the levels to take close-ups on the ground and aerial shots of the whole hall). One of the things that really appealed to us about Firsthand Photography was that Jack makes blog posts for all her weddings showing a wide variety of the pictures she's taken. Not only does that make it feel like there's a little community of people all joined together by separate weddings, but it means you can get a really good idea of her photography style and you know that she's really talented - I was told to be wary of people who will only display a small number of photos from different weddings in case they simply happen to have got lucky with those shots. Jack was just brilliant and like the other reviewers here I'd recommend her as a wedding photographer in the highest terms.

    What can we say about Jack at Firsthand Photography?! From beginning to end she made everything so easy and effortless. Nothing was a problem to Jack and she was on hand to answer any questions, however small or daft they seemed. On the day, Jack was so organised and captured each and every special moment of the day. Her formal group shots are beautiful and her informal shots of everyone relaxing and enjoying the day are spectacular. We had such a difficult time choosing our album because of the hundreds of amazing shots! Jack captured every detail of our day with her amazing photographs and we would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much, Jack for capturing the most special day of our lives! We will never forget it!

    I strongly recommend First hand photography. Jack Tinney made our wedding day so special, her photos captured our special day perfectly and what a lovely lovely lady. Guests have commented how brilliant Jack is and how you didn't even realise she was there as she was snapping away capturing the day. She was brilliant with my niece and nephew and let them help her out when they were starting to get bored. They thought it was great to get involved. We are so happy with our photo's they are so natural and make us relive the day. We are busy choosing our faves.... They are all perfect. Such a talented lady. Thank you so much

  • Bethanie and Mark

    Thank you so much Jack for being so wonderful and helping to make our day fabulous. The photos are amazing, you really managed to capture the day perfectly. Lots of our friends and family commented how friendly and relaxed you were, which is really reflected in the photos. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
