About Us

You will read a lot of clichés on most photographer websites. The words “passion” and “Award winning” are used far too often. Instead, I’d like you to feel as if you know a little bit about how I work.


I believe that being a successful photographer isn’t just about creativity and technical ability (although, those things are important too) but that it’s about people.

I am good at my job because I understand people and connect with them. I am a people person. I take the time to get to know a little bit about you before you book or hire me, which is why I insist we meet for a coffee and a chat before taking any wedding bookings. It is important to me that having your photograph taken is enjoyable.

All work is undertaken by myself, I do not hire out or subcontract work. So when we meet to discuss your details, you know the person you talk to is the same person who will be photographing you.

Wallace Artworks is based in Edinburgh, but I have accepted commissions nationwide. Director Photographer, Helen Wallace-Thomson is a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait photographers (SWPP) as well as the Guild of Photographers. Wallace Artworks are a member of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce and as you would expect from any full-time professional photographer, hold both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance.
