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…

Why family photos are awesome!!!

I love photographs. Just as well I decided to be a photographer, isn’t it? Images connect us to our past. They inspire us and show us who we are and where we came from, so not lots of words on this post…but maybe a few of tears. This is the start of a personal project…

I decided enough was enough and had a…

Edinburgh Wedding

Lovely people and a lovely wedding. I never quite got round to blogging about this fabby Edinburgh wedding. It was over two gorgeous days and the lovely couple, Claire and El, gave me lots of scope to add my ideas…even when it included standing on a plinth on the High Street with all the tourists,…

Slugs and snails and puppy dog tails…

…that’s what little boys are made of. I love doing kids portraits on location, they’re just so much fun…but also really challenging. Different weather conditions, how the kids are feeling, time constraints, are only a few of the factors you have to deal with. My most recent shoot was one of my most challenging so…
