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…

Not my day job…

So I have been promising some cuddly animal photos since I got back from the wedding I shot at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, so here you are. Some of them aren’t quite so cuddly. It was a bit of a break from the normal day to day and I won’t be shooting for National Geographic…

Rewarding yourself for hard work?

Fun experiments with Animoto and Youtube

After an ongoing fight yesterday trying to get the blog, Facebook, Twitter, Animoto, Youtube, Pinterest, Rebel mouse to talk to each other…so much technology for someone with a very limited level of understanding of the internet…I don’t think that is even the correct term now…it’s moved on.

My first wedding…

So when I decided I was going to be a family photographer…who does weddings…in January I realised I needed a guinea pig…or at least a very brave couple who would be happy for me to shoot their wedding. 1 hour later, thanks to Twitter, in steps the very lovely Fiona and Paul. Long story short, engagement…

Wedding and Engagement marketing…step 2

So as I wander into the strange new world of marketing and advertising I thought I’d up date you on how I’m getting on…no philosophy today 😉 The website is starting to look and function how I want it to. Still some things to do but I’m now feeling that it is a much better…

Wedding marketing…step 1

I finished my last post with a question… “How do I connect who I want with what I am?” So this is what I’ve come up with so far… Be honest, direct and positive in all my social media interactions. Be they blogging, tweeting or Facebook so that anyone who looks for me can get…

More wedding fun and games…

My question is what is the best way to market myself as a wedding photographer…I’m just going to put it out there into the ether, not in the hope that someone answers, more as a starting point to my thought process. I know the market I am aiming for; late twenties to thirties, living together,…
