Pre-wedding Shoot on Calton Hill

The wedding season has started and has been rather busy for me so far, therefore I’m a little late in posting this one! I did this shoot a couple of months back on a rather windy but sunny saturday morning up on Edinburgh’s Calton Hill. The fabulous Edinburgh landmark was chosen by Mhairi and Yaasir for their pre-wedding session as this is where Yaasir proposed! Mhairi and Yaasir are actually already married but are doing it again in May at Balbirnie House in Markinch.

 

 

An American Elopement

This was Maureen & Keith’s first visit to Edinburgh, they came over from the States for a few weeks to get married, see the city and parts of Scotland.

I can’t tell you how much I was looking forward to this day. To have a bride & groom all to your self for 2hrs was a real privilege, usually I get 30 mins max! A wedding day is typically fast paced with the pressures of time always on your mind so it was fantastic to spend a bit of time creating a fabulous set of photographs for Maureen & Keith. As well as being their photographer I was delighted to act as their witness to their marriage in the City Chambers. Maureen is a photographer herself which makes me really pleased that she choose me for my talents. They wanted images that captured traditional Edinburgh so we ventured around the old town taking in the Royal Mile, St Giles cathedral, Princes Street Gardens with Edinburgh Castle as a backdrop ending with a trip up Arthurs Seat which, to our delight it started to snow…thankfully by which time we were finished the shoot and didn’t get too cold! Coming from LA, Maureen & Keith don’t see snow that often!

Maureen’s hair was done by the amazing talents at Miss Dixiebelle and flowers from Narcissus Flowers on Broughton Street.

I wish you both all best for your future together and hope to catch up again either here or in LA!

Pre-Wedding Shoot at Portobello Beach

Last weekend I caught up with a lovely couple, Margaret & Simon, at Portobello Beach for their pre-wedding shoot. It was a rather chilly sunday morning but busy with curious dogs and children! Margaret & Simon made it a pleasure to be out and about, a great duo to photograph! x

Sarah & Mark

This was the second weekend in a row I photographed at Winton House and I was delighted to be back. Winton House is now one of favourite venues, not only is it a great place to photograph but it has a lovely relaxed and informal feel to it met with a friendly team of staff.

Joining Sarah and Mark were their two lovely girls, Hannah and Isabelle, who were a just a joy to photograph…

 

Julietta & Bruce

Julietta & Bruce both studied at St Andrews University where they met, so naturally they choose this fantastic venue for their wedding. Bruce in fact sat some of his exams in Lower College Hall where the reception was being held.

Not only are the university buildings a great backdrop for photographs but St Andrews town itself is pretty fabulous.

Thankfully Julietta and Bruce love photography just as much as me, so much so that we ventured on to the beach at West Sands with the whole wedding party…
