2016 A Review Of My Year

2016 A Review Of My Year

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…

My first wedding photography of 2016 was along the road at Achnagairn Castle, one of my favourite venues.

Ackergill Tower Wedding Photography – Karen and Craig

Ackergill Tower Wedding Photography – Karen and Craig

It had been a while since I had done a wedding at the amazing Ackergill Tower, having been busy there over the years, so it was great to be booked for this one, and I was delighted to get back there and appreciate this stunning castle. Karen and Craig had travelled up from Edinburgh for this one, although Karen was from over the water in Orkney originally. I started off with the girls getting ready at the tower, which was a very relaxed pace and gave me plenty time to…

A quick return to Loch Ness Country House Hotel for the second wedding on the trot, and this time it was the turn of Caroline and Derek to tie the knot.

Bunchrew House Wedding Photography – Faye & Ryan

Bunchrew House Wedding Photography – Faye & Ryan

Faye and Ryan chose the lovely setting of Bunchrew House Hotel for their wedding and they couldn’t have picked a better day for it. One of the hottest days of the year, which really showed this venue off against the Beauly Firth. I started at Bunchrew for the arrivals and then we had a lovely ceremony on the lawn, before setting off to do some photography around the grounds.   w

Chrissie & Rory – Wedding Photography Perth

“I wouldn’t want to be your photographer”. Apparently this was a line repeated often to Chrissie prior to her wedding. Being a very experienced model and keen photographer, her expectations for her wedding were always going to be high. How did I feel about this added pressure? Well I didn’t see it as extra pressure, but more of a compliment, and a confidence boost to be chosen over the hundreds of photographers in her contacts list. I’d known her for many years myself and was flattered that she chose me…

Ness Castle Lodges wedding photography – Melanie and Chris

Ness Castle Lodges wedding photography – Melanie and Chris

This was areturn to another of my favourite location, Ness Castle Lodges, on the banks of the River Ness. I love shooting weddings here as it is such a gorgeous location, and Laura and the staff there are so brilliant to work alongside. Melanie and Chris had travelled from Englandshire to this amazing venue for their wedding, and they brought some great weather with them. It certainly didn’t feel like February outside. We started with the usual fun getting ready pictures in Ghillies Lodge, before the small ceremony in River…
