Royal Family Photo – Why You Should Hire A Professional

Royal Family Photo – Why You Should Hire A Professional

Well, the photo of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the latest addition to the Royal Family has certainly caused a stir, and I’m not surprised. For years we have been trying to educate people on the advantages of using a professional photographer to record the important stages in life. Be it a new baby, a wedding or a special birthday, you do need to get it right. Now Mr Middleton, Kate’s father is as far as I can see, just a family member not even with a professional…

Wedding Photography Inverness – Lyndsey & Daniel, Kingsmills Hotel.

Wedding Photography Inverness – Lyndsey & Daniel, Kingsmills Hotel.

Lyndsey Smith and Daniel Fleming chose the lovely Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness for their wedding, which was a small, intimate one and a lot of fun to be part of. There seems to be something about the Kingsmills because every time I go threre for a wedding it rains. Today was no exception with some quite heavy showers, but that didn’t put a dampener on the day and everyone had a fab time. We did manage to get a break in the weather and got a few outside shots done…

Rock The Frock shoot – Gemma

Rock The Frock shoot – Gemma

Rock the Frock is the name I give to my post wedding shoots rather than the old ‘Trash The Dress’ term which I was never comfortable with as it gives the wrong idea of what the shoot is all about. So my first one of 2012 was with Gemma Wainwright, who was married in March. We picked an awesome location to shoot and had a great laugh. Delighted with the images we produced.  

Fashion Photography – Darren

Fashion Photography – Darren

A rare fashion shoot with a guy. I’ve been trying to get a guy to model for me for a while but it’s not easy to find someone with the right look, or willing to do it. I asked Darren to do this shoot, and was absolutely delighted with the results. Hopefully more men will be encouraged to do a shoot in future.

Today I had a pre wedding photography session with Lianne McKinlay and Garry MacLennan in the Spinningdale area. Lianne and Garry get married in July at Glenmorangie¬† House, Cadboll. We spent a couple of hours shooting in various locations in the area and had great fun. Really pleased with the results.

They were joined by their dog Nelly for the shoot, and she joined in the fun…
