Cath and Zaria’s beautiful autumn themed ceremony

I was very lucky to get the opportunity to capture Cath and Zaria’s beautiful and creative, autumn themed civil-partnership on Halloween at Carberry Tower, Mid-Lothian. With the same sex marriage bill coming into effect today in Scotland I wanted to share some of their lovely pictures and congratulate them on finally being able to officially call it…

A beautiful wedding in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

Where would your idea wedding destination be? Victoria Falls on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia has to be up there on my list, so I was very lucky last month to get a chance to shoot the wedding of my good friend Fiona and her now husband Andrew. Thanks guys it was amazing. It…

Valentine’s Winners…how do you get people involved?

Last week I decided to run a wee competition running up to Valentine’s Day to promote my couples…engagement, wedding photography. I was also interested to see what topics people were most engaged with and what days and times were best to post to get the best response. It’s really difficult to tell as you can…

Love in the snow

Good things come to those who wait…I’m not convinced by this most of the time. I have no patience and much prefer to make things happen, but with the weather in Scotland that isn’t really possible. Sometimes you just have to be patient and waiting for snow has just been one of those things this…

Long story short, engagement…

Weddings…what does the customer want?

As usual I’d love feed back on this one…what do couples want when it comes to weddings? This has been going round in my head for a while now. It all started when I was designing a couple of layouts for ads I am placing in the Wedding Guide for Scotland and the Best Scottish…

Weddings and the weather…

I love taking pictures outside, but there is no avoiding it, I live in Scotland. For those of you from further afield, our weather can be a little inclemental, to put it mildly. Over the last two days we have had flooding, bright sunshine, snow, frost, strong winds…and probably a few more that I missed, just to…
