Pre-Wedding Shoot in East Lothian | Taryn & Ewan

wedding_photographer_north_berwick-2

At the weekend just gone, I was very honoured to be at the Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh to shoot the wedding of Taryn & Ewan, and what a fabulous day it was :-). But, before all that, one very warm late afternoon back in July, I found myself heading over to East Lothian – Seacliff Beach to be exact, for the guys’ pre-wedding legal ceremony.

You know, it’s funny but, when I first moved to Scotland back in 2002, I lived in Dunbar, just a few miles down the road, and never knew this beach existed – it’s totally gorgeous and well worth the £3 you need to pay to access it via the private road. And with Tantallon Castle and the Bass Rock in the background, honestly, when you get the right conditions, there are few better places to be.

Sometimes on a shoot, you just find that everything aligns and this was definitely the case here – a fabulous couple, beautiful location and gorgeous weather :-). In fact, the only glitch (if you can call it that), was the message in a bottle that just kept coming back…but I think we got there in the end LOL.

Taryn & Ewan, thank you for going along with everything on the shoot. Here’s just a few of my favourites which I hope you like – click on any image to enlarge.

Family & friends (plus anyone else who might stop by), I would love it if you could leave a comment at the bottom of the post (right down the bottom, underneath the pictures) as it’s great to know what you think 🙂 – I can take negative comments as well LOL :-).

OK guys, this is a super quick post, so apologies for that but, as I’m shooting their wedding tomorrow :-), I just wanted to get out a few quick shots from Rachel & John’s evening pre-wedding shoot in Callendar Park, Falkirk.

Guys, thank you for going along with everything on the shoot given the quickly fading light, and I look forward to your big day tomorrow :-). Here’s just a few of my favourites which I hope you like – click on any image to enlarge.

Pre-Wedding Shoot at Loch Lomond | Nikki & Paul

portrait_photographer_loch_lomond-7

It’s been a couple of months since I posted images from a pre-wedding shoot on the blog…mainly because I haven’t shot a pre-wedding shoot in that time, such has been the busy wedding season I’ve been limited to just a couple of pre-weddings over the last few months. That all said, time did allow us to schedule in Nikki & Paul’s shoot a few weeks ago, and it was great to get back over to Loch Lomond to do this.

The exact location that the guys chose, Sallochy Bay was, I have to admit, unknown to me, although I had done a shoot recently in nearby Balmaha. And, as I was to find out, there was a reason for coming here, as it was this very place that Paul proposed to Nikki :-).

Nikki & Paul, thank you for going along with everything on the shoot 🙂 and I look forward to your big day at Glenskirlie Castle in November :-). Here’s just a few of my favourites which I hope you like – click on any image to enlarge.

Pre-Wedding Shoot in Edinburgh | Kate & Iain

portrait_photographer_edinburgh-46

April & May were quite a busy couple of months for me on pre-wedding shoots, and the sixth and last of these to be shot (until next month at least) was with Kate & Iain who chose to head onto Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile for their shoot. Of course, shooting here is not for you if you want to be secluded and away from the crowds…far from it in May! But, there are still plenty of quirky alleys to explore and get off the main drag (so to speak) for a few quieter shots as well as those with the obligatory crowds on the Mile itself.

Kate & Iain, thank you for going along with everything on the shoot 🙂 and I look forward to your big day at Monachyle MHOR in September :-). Here’s just a few of my favourites which I hope you like – click on any image to enlarge.

Pre-Wedding Shoot in Dunfermline | Martha & Stephen

portrait_photographer_dunfermline-8

It’s not often that I get the chance to do pre-wedding shoots in the evening, such is the short window during the year when the daylight hours are long enough for it still to be light around 8pm! So was great to get out recently and do a shoot in some gorgeous evening sunlight with Martha & Stephen in Dunfermline – the Abbey & the Glen to be exact. I’ve shot a few pre-weddings here before and there’s certainly enough great locations to work with…and did I mention the fabulous early evening light 🙂 – if it was up to me, all weddings would be at this time of the day LOL.

Martha & Stephen, thank you for going along with everything on the shoot 🙂 and I look forward to your big day at my local venue, Glenbervie House, very soon. Here’s just a few of my favourites which I hope you like – click on any image to enlarge.
