a big HELLO and welcome! we are The Gibsons : )
We are Chantal & Scott, a husband & wife team based in Glasgow serving Scotland mainly but we do like to go to new places. We also tend to be in Winnipeg in Canada for a month once a year to see Chantal’s family and love to do shoot in the different light out there.
we see our world in a different way. we love to celebrate life and to document it to be enjoyed later on.
We would like to say that we live life to the fullest but we are like you. We work long, hard hours to make sure we deliver for our clients so we do not have lots of free time to live out our dreams. One day! Our life at the moment is our son Louie. Giving him lots of opportunities to develop his interests, skills and to have fun. He gets a lot of attention from our Instagram. We tend to have people, even strangers, say how they love his personality. Guess that must be what it is like to be famous. We also have a wee cat called Abbi & she is from Canada from when we lived there back in 2007.
We have been photography as a duo for many years full time. We have over 280 weddings and must be just as many portrait shoots in our experience including our own wedding back in 2004 and also the whole experience of a new member into our family so we have the knowledge to make sure a day runs smoothly & get the most from your photography.
Let’s chat more about your needs so get in contact.
Being from a French Canadian family I had the opportunity to go to school in a very diverse and cultural community Saint Boniface that was very much into expressing oneself through an artistic outlet. My passion for photography started at a very young age. I was always the friend who had the camera and took the pictures!
things I love:
- Being a mom and wife. Adore my boys
- Doors and textured walls ~ Ask me about the awesome thank you email I got from past clients involving signage and various doors!
- Penguins make me laugh… they seriously rock!
- Love a hot cup of tea in one of my vintage teacups… all given to me by my Gran and Great Aunt
- The smell of home-baked bread, rain and freshly cut grass
- A good thunderstorm! Like watching a good movie
A very involved father and a bit of a geek. Addicted to organising, be it the house, getting ready for a trip, to do lists, timelines and photo list for my couples.
A family man, child whisperer and love looking back on images of our wedding and family. We are old school and have bookshelves full or photos in albums. Love looking at prints, especially ones that my parents and grandparents bring out and you get to see a glimpse into the past.
I bring an organised and calm view on things. Love collaborating with other suppliers and always looking to push for the next best thing.
I take pleasure in seeing my clients receive our wooden keepsake box containing their USB, prints & accordions when it has been personalised with their names, all decorated nicely. That along with their gorgeous album as it is something special.
We are big believers in sustainability and social responsibility. In business, we always try to make choices with these goals in mind and support suppliers who feel the same way.
