I should have posted this in October but October was a sad month as I lost my Uncle within a few months of losing my Nan. Before we knew about it I had been celebrating the win of 4 Bronze awards, awarded by SWPP - you can see the images here .
Well this month I've managed to gain 6 more Bronzes. here I'm desperate for a Silver (Gold's a wee while off yet - but I'll get there!).
Been exciting. I've also had a booking for a wedding in 2012! Haven't met the couple yet so I'm delighted that they have chosen me :O) Looking forward to it.
Had a lovely wedding with Stuart and Susan last Saturday.. they married abroad and then had a blessing over here with all their family and friends. Just finished putting their images online yesterday - hope they like them.. most nerve racking thing waiting to hear! lol
Had the most amazing experience with John Denton, fellow photographer who was running a course on the Art of Boudoir on behalf of the SWPP. An incredible learning experience that I hope to take in the knowledge and improve on my skills. Can't wait till the future course in October now! If you would like to see the images they are on the website.
I think I enjoyed the day as much as you guys! Amazing details in your wedding. Hannah's dad's speach has to be the best speach I've heard! Full of fun, emotion and cheek ;o) To see the film of Hannah and Stu in the early years was wonderful. Everyone watched on in great delight! You did very well in keeping everyone wanting more! I think Stu's brother Michael certainly did an awesome job too though!
A very special day indeed. I also managed to stop traffic.. to get everyone across the street safely.. there were plenty to get across!
Hannah was ever the radiant bride, she was beautiful! Stunning dress, Stu certainly looked in awe!
All the very best for your future together and I look forward to photographing other events in your life ;o)
Well most recently I've been doing more weddings than anything else... among a few portrait sessions. Which has been great!
A couple of weeks ago I was asked to photograph some models for a brochure for a new business in the area. It was great fun. Client is starting a massage and reiki business. Does lots of things from full body massage to the Hot Stones, to Ear waxing.. I've included a couple of pics to show you. If you want Shona's details please just ask. Once she has a website I'll put up a link to it :O)
Well I'm excited to tell you that I've just organised items to display in a cafe exhibition in Perth's Cosmos Cafe in the High Street.
I'm just waiting to hear when the open evening will be and hopefully plenty of you will be able to come and have a look :O) More details will follow. Items should all now be on the walls. Hope you like them :O)
I had the privilage of photographing Ruth and Craig's wedding at Forter Castle. An elegant wedding with 17 guests in total. It was a beautiful day (in between little showers), bride and groom arrived after me along with all the family. Best Man was Jura, Ruth's dog. The ceremony took place in the little chappel which was tight but ample room for us to feel cosy! When the first song was sung... the best man sang aloud! Much to the amusement of everyone else! That way - twittering all around.. then the minister laughed which made it ok for us all to do the same!
Beautiful service and everything about the day went well.
Here's some of the images I took on the day....
After being up till 4am editing this morning to enable me to get everything online for Ruth and Craig to see before I go on holiday... I'm well ready for my bed tonight!
What a lovely day yesterday for Elizabeth and Scotts wedding with Devine Images :O) Sun was shining. Bride had a beautiful dress and her bridesmaids in the most amazing iridescent purple. Looked blue on the edging.
Recently I was given access to the most gorgeous hotel in Perthshire for a photoshoot. In return I offered to do staff pics which you can see below. If your business could do with some staff pics just let me know!
Yesterday I was in Lothian photographing a wedding with Devine Images. What an incredible day! Bride and Groom were just amazing! Nothing was too much hassle and hotel was the Houstoun House Hotel in Edinburgh. Gorgeous location :O)
Well I've had a number of projects on, Portraits in the Park, Afterschool Club fundraiser, School fundraiser, weddings and meetings with prospective brides and grooms along with another couple of boudoir shoots! Wedding this Saturday in Edinburgh, then a baby shoot on Monday morning :O)
Well last Sunday was BSOC (afterschool club) fundraiser. I awoke to the birds chattering.. looking out the window a fine misty air.. oh dear we have a photo shoot today! Well I was extremely lucky! The photo shoot went a head and right down to the last one we managed! The last family arrived just as it started to rain - their brollies were up as they made their way across the field... oh dear! I said hopefully we'll be fine for a bit under the trees then a few out in the field and dash for cover! We made it!!!
Well with Portraits in the Park a bit all over the place this year we're just about there in getting everyone sorted out with their photo sessions. After a fun day on Sunday past having to relocate due to rain... amazing that Bankfoot was fine!
Here's a few images from the weekend and also some from Monday when I met up with Heather to do some images along with some swans!
Well what a beautiful wedding yesterday with Catherine and Richard. A truely beautiful day. Catherine was busy ironing Richards shirt when I arrived - I said that her marital duties were starting early she replied "they started years ago!" Well the sun blessed us with its presence all day and evening. I had a wonderful time sharing their special day was even fed cucumber sandwiches on the patio. A proper summer garden party!
This image is of Catherine and Richards wedding rings. Tied to the Owl and the Pussycat book for their wee boy Will to look after :O) I found this amazing place with the reflection of the old ruin of Creich Castle and had to capture it :O)
Catherine and Richard signing the register.....
On the low side of the weekend I had to cancel Portraits in the Park due to weather conditions - raining was soooo full on that a couple cancelled and I decided to take a rain check on the rest - WE WILL rebook shortly :O) xx
Well it's been ages since I've been on and LOADS has happened! Can't believe I haven't posted anything since the last Portraits in the Park!
I've done various weddings thanks to Devine Images from Falkland :O) Met them in September last year and had done 3 weddings by the end of the year. Also, upgraded my camera - from Fugifinepix to Canon 50D !! I've also booked 4 weddings myself for this year!
I've got Portraits in the Park once again on the 23rd May which is booking up fast.
