So I had some very exciting news today…I’ve been accepted as a member of the Fearless Photographers group who are, in their words, “the Fearless Photographers directory is a showcase of the best wedding photographers in the world who are constantly striving to surprise you with wedding photos that will amaze you!”

So, to celebrate this fabulous news, I thought I’d put out a fabulous offer to match and, for one week only, I’ll be tripling the amount of my “earlybird” payment discount :-). So, instead of the usual £200 discount that’s on offer, I’m making it £600!

What this means is that you could snap up my popular Primo package for as little as £900 instead of the usual £1500.

My Mezzo package, that includes a stunning Graphistudio wedding album, comes in at £1600 instead of £2200.

Call me old fashioned, but even in this digital age, I still believe that a high quality wedding album is the best way to really show off your wedding pictures and today, I’m delighted to be sharing one of the latest designs to leave the office.

Martha & Stephen were married last July at St. Leonard’s Church in Dunfermline before heading over to my local venue, Glenbervie House, for their reception, and what a glorious day it was guys, blessed with some fabulous summer sunshine…oh yes, the old factor 30 was definitely in use that day!

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Young Books” with a whopping 68 pages. The “book in a box” concept of the Young Book allows for many different combinations of colours and materials and, for their album, the guys opted for a a purple cloud leather finish and took up the option of using one of their pictures on the inside cover of the box.

Third post to the blog this week guys…but, I’m really on a roll…”on fire” some might say! So, today I’m delighted to be sharing my first wedding in May from the first day in May, which took me back to the heart of Glasgow to 29 Glasgow for Kim & Dave’s big day.

As I’m sitting here just now typing this, with rain chucking it down outside, it was good to be reminded that back at the start of May, we were blessed with some fabulous warm sunshine…just as well as I shot three weddings in that first week :-).

29 Glasgow, for those that don’t know, is set right in the city centre on Royal Exchange Square, providing us with a fabulous location for our bride & groom shoot – there’s the imposing columns of the Gallery of Modern Art and the statue of Wellington just in front, complete, always as it seems, with the iconic traffic cone on top!

April was a busy month for me, with five weddings, two pre-wedding shoots, album collections and whole host of meetings with new couples looking to book :-). And, after two weekends on the bounce shooting two weddings on both Friday and Saturday, it was nice to end the month with just the one on the weekend.

Kaitlin & Raymond’s big day took place at the Braid Hills Hotel in Edinburgh, which was to be my second visit there. Up until the day itself, I hadn’t actually met either of the guys but, as I always say, to me that’s not really an issue. We’re all busy people these days and making the time to meet up beforehand can sometimes prove tricky. But, I like to think I’m quite a sociable chap (space for comments below guys if you don’t agree LOL) and can get on with pretty much anyone under any circumstances :-).

Despite the often darkening skies, the rain did hold off for the day allowing us to get outside for the formal group shots and then, after dinner, a short bride & groom shoot, blessed with some of those moody dark skies that you all know I love :-).

When I was last at the Ghillie Dhu for a wedding back in October last year, I seem to remember using the phrase “if Carlsberg did weddings…” for that particular day. Well guys, there must be something in the air at the Ghillie Dhu as, drum roll please…I’m saying it again :-)…”if Carlsberg did weddings, it would be like Nina & Ross’s big day”!

Honestly, I don’t think I’ve seen a couple so happy on their big day…don’t think there was ever a part of the day where Nina wasn’t smiling…apart from perhaps the odd bit of direction from me when I was going for one of my more “moody” (if that’s the right word to use) shots…so my fault entirely LOL.

Of course, being in the heart of Edinburgh, on Princes Street, I couldn’t resist another shoot on the central reservation being buzzed by trams and busses! All in the name of a good shot though, and no one was harmed :-).
