Kate & Dan’s wedding at Meldrum house hotel

weddings

Wedding Photographers Aberdeen:   I met up with Kate and the bridal party at a lovely wee cottage near Methlick, it was really chilled out and a lovely start to the day.  Dan was waiting patiently with his groomsmen at the stables.  The ceremony was lovely, Kate did well holding back her tears!  Emma from The Waggy Tails wedding package turned up with Kate and Dan’s dogs so they didn’t miss out on their day, they posed for some pics then went off for a walk with Emma as the guests went indoors to be treated to ice cream.   […]

Euan & Jakki’s 4th anniversary!

weddings

Aberdeen wedding photographers: In 2010 i wanted to set up my own photography business after taking a year out to travel in 2009.  I found myself unemployed and with limited photography equipment, my previous role as a press photographer supplied a full Nikon kit so i hadn’t bought much of my own.   I had a Nikon D300 with a 18-55mm and a Tamaron 70-300mm.  I also didn’t have much of a portfolio as my press images were copyrighted to Aberdeen Journals so i couldn’t use any of them.   So where to start?!  I didn’t have any money to […]

Aberdeen wedding photographers:  Samantha & Michael got married at Maryculter house hotel on Saturday!  I was chuffed when i arrived to see it was set up for an outdoor ceremony, it is such a pretty setting by the river.   Samantha arrived with a big smile and didn’t stop the whole day, the biggest smile was definitely when she got to Michael’s side.  So lovely!  Their humanist ceremony was awesome, they had a couple of friends singing and playing guitar which captivated everyone.  I loved standing back and photographing all the moments between the bride & groom and their family […]

Aberdeen wedding photographers:  James and Kierstin got in touch asking for an engagement shoot at Duthie Park, they wanted some images for save the date cards for their wedding day in Kierstin’s home town of Seattle next year.  Kierstin emailed me some images she liked and they were all taken in ‘golden hour’  it is most photographers favourite time of day as the light is so pretty but in Scotland you can never plan it as you need the sun!  As we started our shoot it was overcast but the sun soon came out (for ten whole minutes!) and we […]
