2013 With John Baikie Photography

2013 With John Baikie Photography

Well, as another year draws to a close, it is time for a review of the year. It has been another epic year both business and personally, with lots of highs and lows. This year was definitely a harder year due to the financial climate and to a lesser extent the “2013” thing which saw a few people put their weddings off until next year. The first half of the year was very quiet for weddings, although from the end of June it was back to normal again, and delighted…

Wedding Photography Aviemore, Stephanie and Scott

Wedding Photography Aviemore, Stephanie and Scott

An amazingly sunny but wintry day for this wedding. Stephanie Mackay and Scott Wilde got married at Macdonalds Highland Resort in Aviemore, but the day began in Invergordon where the couple were both getting ready before making the trip down the A9. I started at Scott’s mum’s house with the guys and the banter there was brilliant. I then went to Steph’s grans house where the girls were getting ready. It was a fun day, and it was great to be able to get a brief shoot at Loch Morlich…

Dunrobin Castle – Pre wedding shoot. Michelle & Craig

Dunrobin Castle – Pre wedding shoot. Michelle & Craig

Michelle Christie and Craig Anderson get married in July. They chose Dunrobin Castle for their pre wedding shoot. The pre wedding shoot is a great way to get used to the camera and get a feel for what it will be like on the day. Usually great fun – although it absolutely bucketed down this day!

Wedding  Photographer Glasgow University – Gamen and Kevin

A return to one of my favourite ever venues, Glasgow University ChapelĀ  for this wedding. I love the buildings there, and had a lot of fun there exactly one year ago to the very day of this one! Getting married there were GamenĀ  Ho and Kevin McCabe. The couple are originally from the area but are currently living in Australia. The day began with Gamen and her party getting ready at Glenskirkie Castle, which was the reception venue as well. It was a very wet and dull day, and I…

Northern Nashville Country Music Festival

Northern Nashville Country Music Festival

The Northern Nashville Country Music Club held their annual festival in Caithness over Easter weekend. It was yet another massive success and complete sell out, which is a superb effort. It’s great to see an event so well supported up here every year. There were a load of well known acts present from all over the world, with a strong Texas contingent there this year, including Gene Watson, Justin Trevino and Tony Booth, as well as local bands including Manson Grant & The Dynamos, The Kate Bain Band, and of…

Engagement Photography Dalcross Castle

Engagement Photography Dalcross Castle

Dalcross Castle was the location for the engagement photography shoot with Jennifer Fraser and Niall Farquhar. The couple get married at Dalcross Castle in August, and I am lucky to be doing their wedding photography there. It was a stunning day, but very cold. It was my first time at Dalcross castle and it really is a stunning location for wedding photography, so I am looking forward to going back later this year to shoot the wedding!  

Engagement Photography Loch Ness

Engagement Photography Loch Ness

I recently did an engagement photoshoot, or pre-wedding shoot, at Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness with Alyson and Jim, who’s wedding photography I am doing later this month. It was a really beautiful day at Loch Ness and we did some shots at Alyson’s parents farm, before heading out to a couple of other locations we hope to use on the day of their wedding.
