Over the years, The Gibsons have been helping couples capture their weddings and then continuing with family photographs through their lives.
Based in Glasgow, The Gibsons are a family & wedding photography company, producing luxury experiences in Scotland and documenting the days that make us who we are.
The company is run by Chantal & Scott, a married couple whose experience in first class events allows couples to fully trust them in the organisation of their wedding.
Chantal studied photography in high school. She received her diploma through a 2-year intensive course through the Photography Institute. She also has a diploma in wedding planning. Chantal then started the business in 2010.
Scott joined the business part-time in 2011 as a second photographer then went full time in 2013 as a business partner. He always tries to outdo Chantal. He also second shoots for many other photographers. Not only is he awesome at taking photos but he often gets nicknamed “the legend” for his helpfulness on the day. Don’t know how to wear a kilt? Scott to the rescue.
We see our world in a different way. we love to celebrate life and to document it to be enjoyed later on.
Between us we have done over 500 weddings and over 250 portrait photoshoots. We have the knowledge to get the most from your photography and not make you look like Chandler from Friends.

NUMBER OF IMAGES DELIVERED TO OUR INCREDIBLE CLIENTS
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:
– 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.
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.
– multi-tools like my Leatherman Charge TTi and Raptor.
– being a bit of a prepper. Prepares you for all things in life.
– organisation. Think Marie Kondo and what Sparks Joy! : )
– positivity and a good meme. KCCO!
“I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. To stand for something, and to have made some difference that you lived at all.” ~ Leo Rosten
We are big on reducing, reusing and recycling. We keep everything as digital where we can and when we do provide something physical we make sure that it is recyclable i.e. paper, wood or glass. We always try to make choices with these goals in mind and support suppliers who feel the same way.
We are proud of our accomplishments having been involved in incredible collaborations with fellow Scottish suppliers. You can also find our work featured in the below and many more of the world’s top wedding blogs. Featured in:
