May turned out to be a great month, because as well as the cycling events, I had a huge success in the BIPP Scottish Regional Awards. It was definitely worth a trip to Glasgow

Engagement Photography Eilean Donan Castle

A few months ago I received an email from Santiago in Madrid, Spain, who was planning his holiday to Scotland with his girlfriend Veronica. He had decided he was going to propose to her on the holiday and felt that having a photographer there to capture the moment would be a great way to remember it. After much emailing, we came up with a plan and a location at Eilean Donan Castle, the iconic Scottish Castle on the West Coast of Scotland. We exchanged photographs, so we knew who we…

BIPP Scottish Region Awards

BIPP Scottish Region Awards

Yesterday I was in Glasgow, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, for the annual Scottish BIPP awards.It was a fun day, which started with the student awards, which were really amazing quality, and they had a great turn out on the day. We then had talks from the Judges Denise and Alan, before the AGM and buffet. Then it was awards time. I must admit, I didn’t expect to get anything this year, as I had (as usual) left my entries to the very last minute, and couldn’t even remember what…

Eilean Donan Castle Wedding Photography – Tanya and Jose

Well, every wedding is amazing, and they all have their own little sub-plots which make them individual. This one was no different. Jose and Tanya were over from Ontario, Canada for this one. And what a day it turned out to be. This was already different to what is considered ‘the norm’ for weddings, in that, for a change Jose was doing all the planning. It was unusual, but after meeting him, it all made perfect sense. here was a guy, deeply in love, who wanted to make this day…

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 Inverness, Tina and Jamie, Achnagairn House.

My last wedding of 2013, was at my local venue, and one of my favourites, Achnagairn House, in Kirkhill. The couple are from Golspie but chose the magnificent Achnagairn for their big day. The day began with Tina and the bridesmaids getting ready at the house, while Jamie, despite loving the camera, did his best to avoid it. It was a really relaxed morning and a lot of fun. We then had a lovely humanist ceremony conducted by Jackie Goode, before heading outside to make the best of the autumn…
