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…

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…

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,…
