Pre-Wedding Shoot in Kelvingrove Park:
Lynsay & Ian

Third pre-wedding shoot in as many weeks for me last Saturday…Valentine’s Day to be precise, as I found myself in Kelvingrove Park with Lynsay & Ian. It had been quite some time since we last met up – around September 2012 if my diary is correct, so it was good to catch up a couple of months before their wedding at Solsgirth House and try out a few things on the shoot.

‘ve been in this neck of the woods a few times now for pre-wedding shoots, although usually at the nearby Glasgow University. The one thing I did remember from before about Kelvingrove Park, on the one or two occasions that I’ve been here, is that there was an old derelict bandstand that, in my mind anyway, would have been perfect for a few shots. But, wouldn’t you know it, they’ve only gone and renovated it all – locked gates and everything! Still, I guess I’m in the minority in preferring it as it was!!!

Lynsay & Ian, a big thank you for just going along with everything on the shoot and I look forward to your wedding day come April. Here’s a few of my favourite images which I hope you like.

Pre-Wedding Shoot at Cornhill House:
Audrey & Fraser

So last Sunday I found myself heading south; no, not that far south as in London or the like, but south as into the Borders – Cornhill House near Biggar to be exact, and this was my first trip here. The reason? To shoot Audrey & Fraser’s pre-wedding shoot and to have a bit of a catch up about their wedding that I’m shooting at the very same place come the summer, thus killing two birds with one stone as they say.

The thing that struck me on my trip down was the amount of snow still kicking around. Sure, we had some here in Larbert last week, but it’s long since disappeared, but not in the Borders it would seem, as the backdrop got visibly whiter the further I ventured – still, all makes for some good images as I think I’m pretty safe in saying we won’t have any of that come July.

Boy was it cold – even I felt it and I’m kind of used to it these days!

Audrey & Fraser, a big thank you for braving the cold and for going along with everything on the shoot, and I look forward to your wedding come July. Meantime, here’s just a few of my favourite images which I hope you like (just click on any of the thumbnails to start the viewer).

Pre-Wedding Shoot in Linlithgow:
Carol & David

And continuing my quest to keep up to date with my blogging this year, today I’m very pleased to be featuring a few images from my latest pre-wedding shoot that I did with Carol & David in Linlithgow on Saturday. We’d already postponed the shoot once due to snow & ice and, let me tell you, Saturday wasn’t that much better…absolutely freezing, but dry at least! Being a photographer, I don’t (or shall I say) can’t, wear gloves – well, I guess I could if I wanted, but I just find that it becomes a bit tricky to operate the camera, and with me being a totally manual shooter (photographers will know what I mean), just makes life harder. So I guess I’ve become accustomed to my hands being a bit cold when out and about in the winter but, boy, even I was feeling it on this shoot!

I shot Carol’s sister Michelle’s wedding to Steven last year which is how the guys ended up getting in touch with me :-), and I’m very much looking forward to their wedding at Norton House very shortly.

Linlithgow is a pretty popular location for pre-wedding shoots and I’ll be back there again in a couple of weeks for another shoot, ironically (or not depending on your point of view), with a sister of a bride who’s wedding I photographed a couple of years ago.

Carol & David, a big thank you for braving the elements on the shoot and for going along with everything. Here’s just a few of my favourite images which I hope you like (just click on any of the thumbnails to start the viewer).

Pre-Wedding Shoot at the National Museum of Flight:
Lynsey & Paul

A few weeks ago, I was very excited to be shooting Lynsey & Paul’s pre-wedding shoot ahead of their big day next month – not only because I LOVE shooting pre-wedding shoots (and weddings too, of course – in fact, everything really), but also because the chosen location was the National Museum of Flight over in East Lothian, home to one of the Concorde’s previously operated by British Airways.

Many years ago, and I do mean “many” years ago, I used to be a “plane spotter”, scouring the many airports in the South East of England (Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted etc etc), and often getting into areas where, these days, I’d probably be locked up on issues of national security. But hey, they were more innocent times back then :-). These days, although I’m no longer “spotting planes”, I do, naturally, retain that passion for all things aviation that I’ve always had, so the chance to do a pre-wedding shoot in and around aircraft was a chance not to be missed. Throw in the Concorde as well and, well, there you have it.

Lynsey & Paul, a big thank you for going along with everything on the shoot – here’s some of my fave images which I hope you like and I very much look forward to your wedding day next month at Glenbervie.

Portrait Photography in Glasgow:
Gillian & Ryan’s Pre-Wedding Shoot at the Riverside Museum

Seriously falling well behind with blogging of late – of course, I blame going on holiday myself…must try harder in future! So, in an attempt to catch up on where we left off, very pleased to be sharing a few images from one of my last pre-wedding shoots with Gillian & Ryan that we did back in June just after I got back from hols…yes, it was that long ago now!

The guys chose the Riverside Museum in Glasgow as the location for the shoot, somewhere I’d never been before myself…but I think I’ll be going back :-). As well as the museum itself, there’s also the tall ship moored alongside. Of course, the only issue you really have with a location like this, is dodging the large number of other visitors, although it’s always amazing how they disperse when they see a 70-200mm lens on show!

Gillian & Ryan, a big thank you for going along with everything on the shoot – here’s some of my fave images which I hope you like.
