A Blackford Hill pre-wedding shoot

I’m delighted to share with you a few images from Gemma & David’s pre-wedding shoot. A few months back we ventured up Blackford Hill which is one of Gemma & David’s favourite parts of Edinburgh.

Doing a pre-wedding shoot is a great opportunity to get a feel for what it will be like on your wedding day. It allows you relax in front of camera and see what is expected of you, helping to take the pressure off on your big day. It lasts around an hour and takes place in a location of your choice, this can be somewhere special to you perhaps where you got engaged, somewhere you like to visit at the weekends or I’m happy to recommend some of the many scenic areas I know. Its also a good chance for us get to know each other, your wedding photographer is with you all day on one of the most important days of your lives so its nice to know we get on and you feel comfortable with me. It’s a good time for me to hear more about your plans and ideas for your big day which in turn allows me to personalise the photography to suit you. As well as this you receive a lovely set of portraits of yourselves which you can then use as you wish, perhaps for your wedding guest book, invites or table plans…


Pre-wedding shoot on a windy day

It’s been over a year since I photographed Judith’s brother’s wedding so it was great to catch up again and hear more about their special day. Jude and Tommy love the views over the forth so it was a great location choice for their pre-wedding session.

It was rather cold and windy but the sun made an appearance for us to capture these lovely set of images.

Jude and Tommy are to be married this summer at the Cannongate Kirk followed by the MacDonald Holyrood Hotel.

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.



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
