pre wed

Alex + Hugo • couple shoot

The forecast wasn't looking too great for the first Saturday of 2015 but thankfully the weather gods changed their mind and as I left a snowy bleak Glasgow the sun came out over Portobello Beach just in time for Alex & Hugo's pre-wed shoot. It turned out to be the most crisp glorious winter day we'd had for a long time. Our luck was in!

I love this part of Edinburgh and was excited that Alex & Hugo had chose it as their pre-wed location and a place for us to catch up whilst they were visiting from London to arrange their Edinburgh wedding.

Back then their wedding and Spring felt like a long way away... well now it's finally here and next week I get to photograph these two gorgeous faces all over again! Woohooo! Can't wait.

stewart + ming • couple shoot

I have to admit, I love a last minute enquiry... and Stewart & Ming's was just that. They were due to leave sunny California and come to Scotland to get married in a month and somehow stumbled upon my website whilst doing some more wedding research. Having already booked their wedding photographer they liked my photography that much that they wanted a shoot with me so decided last minute to squeeze in a couple shoot just days before their wedding. And I'm so glad they did!

I travelled to Gargunnock, the village where Stewart is from, in torrential rain and due to the tight timings there was no time to reschedule due to 'bad weather' we just had to go for it and thankfully Stewart & Ming felt the same.

This shoot was amazing. We had a break in the rain at the beginning and at the end but in between the heavens opened as we were stood in the middle of a field! These shots are some of my favourite shots I've ever taken and one of them won me a PHOTOGRAPHY FARM IMAGE OF THE WEEK which I'm super proud about.

Sometimes it's worth braving the rain...
