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 buy kit so i got a job as a care worker in a lovely care home in Dyce, i really enjoyed it, the people were lovely and really appreciative of your help and time. I also assisted Martin Leckie, a wedding photographer based in Inverurie, i changed his lenses, carried his bag and helped with lighting but most of all i watched him work. I slowly built up my kit and my portfolio by doing lots of free/low paid photo shoots and relying on friends and family to recommend me. When i heard my old school buddy Euan was getting married i sent him a facebook message asking if he wouldn’t mind me photographing his day, he checked with his bride to be and they agreed. Finally i was getting in on the wedding scene! They had a lovely DIY wedding in Euan’s parents garden, they both put in so much work and i was delighted to be able to photograph it for them. Looking back at the photos i can see how much i have progressed and how my limited kit was back then but i still think the photos are true to my wedding style today; relaxed, fun and creative. Happy Anniversary Mr & Mrs Wemyss and thanks again for letting me be a big part of your awesome wedding!
