For the wild bohemians to the classic traditionalists, I love capturing the uniqueness of your day! Whatever it may be. LUSTRE offers both video & photography (and combination) packages.
My name is Samantha Gurrey and I run LUSTRE Video & Photography. I am the main photographer and videographer and I do all of the post production editing in house. I like to prioritise capturing natural, real and candid moments on the day.
Since starting my business in 2017, LUSTRE has been nominated for Photographer of the Year in the Scottish Wedding Awards 2019.
I was born in Toronto, Canada and I moved to Scotland to complete a Masters Degree at the Glasgow School of Art. Prior to that, I completed a Bachelor of Fine Art from York University, Toronto.
In addition to myself, LUSTRE works with a couple of hand selected professional artists. Each shooter champions LUSTRE's aesthetic and style (very natural with a focus on creative and candid shots). This is so that we can offer more availability to clients. I do all of the editing to maintain a certain standard and to deliver LUSTRE's unique look.
I would describe myself as being a bit silly, slightly wild at heart and a lover of animals, hip hop and a climate change activist.
I am friendly, creative and passionate about giving couples something unique to cherish forever. This isn't just a business to me. I'm an artist and I'm lucky enough to really enjoy the work that I do! I love being a part of such an important day and helping couples capture it all.
If you think this is what you are looking for, I would love to hear from you!
You may have already gathered all of this, but LUSTRE aims to shoot in a natural - less staged way. We might tell you to go for a walk and hold hands and capture the natural atmosphere of you two being together. This approach to shooting definitely produces a particular style and vibe, but it is also great for anyone who is a bit nervous in front of the camera.
I have developed a particular style of editing which allows my photos to feel a bit vintage, warm and soft. I eliminate harsh shadows and try to bring out all of the details and intricacies of all of the wedding attire and details. This style is unique to LUSTRE and comes from years of studying photography and the fine arts.
