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…

Love in the snow

Portraits, who you are or who you want to be?

The blog has been a bit wedding and engagement heavy of late so I think it’s time to look at other parts of the business. I never set out to do only wedding photography. I know photographers are regularly told they have to do one thing but that doesn’t fit with my philosophy. I want…

Wedding pictures that tell a story…

I was asked recently for my favourite wedding picture for a magazine gallery. And while I have great shots of brides looking stunning and happy. They are not the ones that resonate with me.
