Nina & Ryan's Pre Wedding Shoot at Luss in Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond Pre Wedding Shoot

I am so lucky to be doing a job that I love, I get to meet so many sweet couple! I was approached by Joyce - a friend of Nina and Ryan who wanted to purchase an engagement shoot as a gift for their wedding a few months back. Time was running quite tight for the couple as they were tying the knot in Egypt on April 19th! Alas we settled on a date a few weeks prior to the wedding and boy was it a perfect one! The sun was out and everyone was happy! When Nina and Ryan arrived at the cafe we chatted for a good half hour or so before the shoot and it seemed as though we were friends already!  They were so fun to be around with!

A Winter Wedding Proposal at Culzean Castle

img.jpg

On a cold winters day on 27th of December 2015 I was called out to shoot a surprise proposal for Manny and Kiran!
You can probably imagine my excitement! This was my very first proposal shoot and it went exceptionally well but I think I was more nervous than Manny himself! Manny chose the beautiful Culzean Castle near the coast of Ayrshire as the proposal spot which was just so perfect! Kiran is from Italy so she hadn't seen much of Scotland - so Manny thought it would be a great idea to say "lets to a couples shoot" which was the perfect cover up!

Now fast forward to February 13th 2016 they tied the knot in India and I'm sure they had such a wonderful wedding!

BIG CONGRATS

2015 So Far !

img.jpg

So where do I even begin with this post? It has been AMAZING year! I've met so many wonderful people along the way, traveled all around the UK to photograph lovely couples and achieved so many goals! Wouldn't have thought twice about featuring on these wonderful blogs Style Me Pretty, Love My Dress, Braw Brides and My Lovely Scottish Wedding. BUT I did it! No words can actually explain how overjoyed I was with all of these features (literally think I cried). I'm just so grateful for everyone for supporting me through it all. Okay I won't ramble on any more! Take a look at the awesome journey I've had!

Aswanley Wedding

Kendal & Steven

Where do I start with this wedding ?! Firstly thank you to Emma Lawson Photography for having me second shoot this wedding with her! I arrived at one of the Aswanley Cottages for groom preparations and as usual I was greeted by friendly faces.  Just simply had a real good laugh with the lads! After they got ready, some lovely rose champagne was popped and a couple of swigs of rum were taken (to calm the nerves of course) then off we went to the beautiful Aswanley.  As soon as I arrived I couldn't get out the car fast enough, the place was stunning!  The venue was styled by ' A vintage Tea Party ' so no wonder! I get over excited by wedding decor and love capturing all those details! Enough of me telling you the whole story about how stunning Kendal looked and how much fun I had - just go ahead and check out a few of the images I took from the day! Also - I wish Kendal and Stephen a sweet, happy married life together!

I haven't ever shown my film work tothe world before until now ! I have too countless rolls of images taken on trips away through out so many years and haven't developed any until a couple of months back.  I guess I was a little scared on how it would turn out! Will it come out blank ? That would mean £10 or so in the drain PER ROLL if it did mess up! I've had no previous lessons on film photography so that was another reason that I doubted they'd turn out any good! With some button bashing around the camera, I created these ....

The Byre at Inchyra Wedding Story

A month before August 11th I was looking to build a creative team to work with on a styled wedding shoot (list of suppliers below)! I was just bursting out with inspirations and wanted to do something different, mainly to inspire brides and grooms to be ! There are so many talented suppliers out there that many of us haven't heard of but they do such a beautiful job in completing your perfect wedding.

When the day came everything ran quite smoothly :) It was one of the BIGGEST shoots I've ever organised, so I must say that I'm pretty pleased with myself! Honestly though, I wouldn't have managed without the team behind it all and helping me make shoot a success, so a BIG MASSIVE thanks to you all!

Another lovely wedding I did as second shooter for Emma Lawson Photography! Below are some of the images from the lovely Rachel and Steven's big day that I took!

So my day started of at Steven's parent's house, as I walked in I was greeted by a bunch of friendly faces and yummy breakfast ! The boys looked relaxed and taking their time (as they always do) I had such a great laugh and lots of fun doing groom prep all the way to the dancing !

My first time in Balbirnie House Hotel and first time working with Emma Lawson Photography (do check out her work!).  We also met with Andrew Burden from Erin Rose Film who did a fantastic job on the wedding trailer!

I had such a great time photographing the awesome Jason and Kirsten's big day and I do hope they're having the time of their lives as husband and wife :)  These two love birds tied the knot on 27th May 2015 and below is a snippet of what went on that day!

A pre-wedding photo shoot with the cutest couple in Kelvin Grove Park, Glasgow.

Honestly don't know where to start! I just want everyone to see for themselves how cute these two were! So here at the beginning of August, a week before their wedding, Michelle and I were exchanging texts a couple of days before their pre wedding shoot.  We were planning what they could wear, where to photograph and questioning about the weather.  It turned out just fine for them both :) We felt speckles of rain but it stayed dry for the couple *Thank you rain!*  I shall stop right there and let you feast your eyes on these beauts!

Glencoe Experience

Two weeks ago I had the best experience ever in Glencoe.  The weather was perfect and the people were awesome.  I attended a workshop that was held by the Kitcheners whom are one of my biggest inspirations in photography.  I thank Joanna and Dylan and the rest of the gang for being so supportive, friendly and helpful throughout.  Below are a few photos of the beautiful couple Martyna and Dave just before reaching Glencoe.  Honestly these two are just so perfectly in love.
