maternal health in Malawi

Malawi time lapse

Uncategorized

I was so incredibly lucky to go to Malawi to document maternal health for a charity called Immpact which is based at Aberdeen university.  For information on the charity check out their website:  http://www.abdn.ac.uk/iahs/research/immpact/index.php While i was there i wanted to have a wee play with the time lapse function on my Nikon D800, i have only ever made one video of me dancing around in my flat, purely for practice and that was swiftly deleted!  I placed my camera on a tripod in the immunisation room at Bwaila maternity clinic, mothers and babies queued patiently waiting for their jabs, […]

Craig & Steph’s wedding

weddings

Aberdeen Wedding Photographers:  Craig and Steph got married at the beautiful Ferryhill Church with the reception at the Palm Court hotel.  On route to Johnstone gardens for more photographs we went to a wee back street as there was a shed i had my eye on.   I have a penchant for photographing old sheds and shooting in to the sun so i did both!  The minister at Ferryhill church did a lovely service, Steph’s parents got married there over 30 years ago so i’m sure it brought back a lot of memories for them.  Happy honeymooning to Mr & […]

Steve & Emma’s pre wedding shoot

Pre-Wedding

Aberdeen wedding photographers:  I met up with Steve and Emma last Sunday, it was definitely the start of spring, Duthie Park looked lovely with a sprinkle of crocuses and the sun was shining.  Steve and Emma were a breeze to photograph, pretty much every couple starts off feeling a bit awkward but after chatting about wedding plans and my mum’s bizarre banana curry (which i ate that night….) they were relaxed and started to enjoy it.  They are getting married at Fasque house in May, really looking forward to it!

Ryan & Susan’s wedding at Pittodrie House Hotel

weddings

Aberdeen wedding photographers:  What a beautiful March day Ryan & Susan got for their wedding, Pittodrie House hotel looked stunning with blue skies and Bennachie looking awesome in the back ground, it’s always a pleasure to be there.  I spent some time with Susan and her bridesmaids getting ready, Susan got a lovely surprise gift from Ryan and the bridesmaids entertained with a dance rountine- great material for the videographer!  The day went smoothly and the sun stayed out.  Congrats again to Mr & Mrs Lovett!

The Northern lights of Aberdeen!

Uncategorized

Aberdeen Photographers:  Whooooohooooo!!!  I finally got them good and proper!  As i was heading out the Collieston/Cruden Bay area tonight i had to swerve to avoid all the people standing at the road side looking up at the sky!  The most difficult bit i found was getting somewhere with a decent foreground, this proved to be very difficult in the middle of the night when you can’t see anything and you forgot a torch…

Nicky & Rhea’s pre wedding shoot

Pre-Wedding

Aberdeen Wedding photographers:  It feels like so long ago since i first met Nicky & Rhea, it was lovely to catch up at their pre wedding shoot.  They chose Footdee/Aberdeen beach as their location as Nicky proposed at the Silver Darling restaurant, very tasty seafood and a proposal- sounds like it was an awesome night!  I love Footdee and often go for a wee walk around the quaint sheds and houses on Sunday afternoon, it is a great area to do Pre wedding shoot and the locals are so used to people taking photos they don’t bat an eye lid.

Ben & Susie’s winter wedding at Glentanar Ballroom

weddings

Aberdeen Wedding photographers:  I have finally gotten round to blogging Ben & Susie’s awesome winter wedding at Glentanar ballroom in Aboyne.  I have been out to Glentanar estate a few times over the years but never for a winter wedding, it looked even more stunning with a wee layer of snow.  Susie went on a dress making course and then made her bridemaid’s dresses and fur stoles, how talented is she?!  They also made their own cake with help from the mums and did their own invites.  I love it when people add their own personal touches.  Winter weddings can […]

a wee Aurora Borealis

Uncategorized

Aberdeen Photographers:  While watching the penultimate episode of breaking bad last night my aurora app kept going off, it was a tough decision- do i leave my cosy flat and Walter White or do i go out for a drive… I then saw some amazing photos on Facebook of the Aurora up in Caithness, so a drive it was. I stopped at a muddy field near CulterCullen (not quite a beautiful loch but a muddy puddle!) and saw a very faint green in the sky, i reckon it still counts! Maybe a wee road trip north is the way to […]

Darren & Gillian’s wedding at Balbirnie House

weddings

Scottish Wedding Photographers:  Darren & Gillian got married at the beautiful Balbirnie House situated in Glenrothes, Fife.  It was my first time there and i was amazed at how big it was,  There was so many rooms for the guests to mingle in.  The whole day was very relaxed, Gillian was very chilled out in the morning and Darren had his sons to keep him busy!  My favourite image of the day has to be the first hug between husband and wife, Gillian looks so happy, there is a lot of love in that hug!

Darren & Gillian’s pre wedding shoot

Pre-Wedding

Aberdeen wedding photographers:  It was third time lucky for Darren & Gillian’s pre wedding shoot, we had to cancel twice as the weather was too wet.  Fortunately on the Saturday before their wedding it was a beautiful sunny day!  We met  in Footdee (Fitty- one of my favourite places in Aberdeen) and made the most of the sheds and out houses, we also got some shots down at the beach.
