Category Archives: Pre-Wedding Shoots

A couple of months back, I was out on yet another pre-wedding shoot…this time with Kara & Louis at the very picturesque Dollar Glen, which the guys had chosen and which also was, unless my memory is playing tricks with me, the very place where Louis proposed to Kara :-). Being the city boy that I am, I kind of wasn’t ideally prepared for the short hike down to the river (although the very name itself “glen” should have told me that we would be going downhill)…a pair of boots rather than a pair of Converse might have been a better choice. But boy was it worth it!

I do often get asked as to the benefits of pre-wedding shoots – will it make your wedding pictures better…not necessarily. Will it make you feel more comfortable getting your pictures taken come the big day…I think so. Will it get you used to being photographed…absolutely, and that’s a big plus. I see the pre-wedding shoot as a kind of dry run and a testing ground. We get to try out a few different types of shots and you can then tell me which ones you like and those that you’re not so keen on…and that’s a win-win come the big day :-). And, of course, you get to keep all the pictures from the shoot and also have the option of adding on a signing frame.

You know that they say about busses…none for ages and then two or three come along together! Well, that’s pretty much the case with my pre-wedding shoots this year…hadn’t shot one for a good few months and then I get to do three inside two weeks!

My latest shoot had me down on my second visit to Mugdock Country Park for Nicola & Stevie’s shoot, which was hotly followed on it’s heels with their actual wedding just a few weeks later. For anyone that hasn’t been to Mugdock, it is a fabulous place for a shoot and we were also lucky enough to be blessed with some glorious sunny weather on the day as you can see from the images below.

Wow, I’ve just realised that it’s been quite some time since I posted any pre-wedding shoot images on the old blog. I guess that is in part due to the fact that I don’t shoot as many pre-weds these days…not since I made it an “add-on” to my wedding collections rather than being included in all of them as it was back in the day!

Julieann & Greg chose to head down to one of my favourite spots for their shoot, South Queensferry to be exact…probably done more pre-weds here than anywhere else down the years and with good reason…fabulous place to shoot. The session actually took place back in August (yes, such is my blogging back log – at least that’ll keep me busy over the winter months when the weddings tail off a wee bit)…the guys are actually married now and I had the honour of shooting their wedding a few weeks ago, so watch out for that being featured on the blog very soon :-).

Another little road trip back in July found me heading north again for Kelly & Callum’s pre-wedding shoot…only my third pre-wed shoot of the year.

The guys chose the beautiful Falls of Bruar for their shoot, which was to be my first time here, but I’ll certainly be adding it to my list from here on in as it’s a fabulous setting :-).

Such was the timescales that there was literally just over a week between the pre-wedding shoot and the actual wedding itself at Castle Menzies…fabulous day but more of that (and pictures) to follow at a later date :-).

My second pre-wedding shoot in as many days took me a bit closer to home, Callendar Park in Falkirk to be exact, for Sharon & Steven’s shoot and, again, we got lucky with some sunny, albeit a touch breezy, conditions.

As a wee bonus, the guys brought along their dog and I say “amen to that” :-). Pre-wedding shoots can be whatever you want them to be…bring your dog, your kids if you have any, your parents to watch over the kids LOL…at the end of the day, it’s whatever makes you comfortable for being in front of the camera. Sure, we’ll do some shots of you guys on your own in preparation for the wedding day but, honestly, anything goes.
