Portrait Photography in West Lothian:
Kerry & Andy’s Pre-Wedding Shoot at Beecraigs Country Park

Well guys, that’s me back from a couple of weeks away in Tenerife! Always great to get away for a bit a re-charge as they say, although with two small kids in tow, holiday’s don’t yet fall into the “relaxing” category!!! And, taking a  break during wedding season means I’m coming back to a mountain of new weddings and pre-wedding shoots and all that editing. And, of course, blogging, as I always like to keep you in touch with what I’ve been up to. And, today, I have a new pre-wedding shoot to share with you – this one, from way back at the end of April with Kerry and Andy that we shot at Beecraigs Country Park.

This was a first for me at Beecraigs, not having been here before but what a great location…has everythign you need for a shoot – big tall trees (I’m not the horticultural type so “big tall trees” is about as good as I can muster :-)), a lake, tree lined paths…all very mystical and magical. This was the first time I’d met up with Kerry and Andy and a shoot like this is always great to get a feel for the type of photography that each couple prefer…and to try a few things slightly outside the box as well.

Portrait Photography in Linlithgow:
Frankee & Andrew’s Pre-Wedding Shoot

I’m heading off on a short break soon guys and, when I return, it’ll pretty much be time for Frankee and Andrew’s wedding day at the very wonderful Solsgirth House. Seems like ages ago now that I first met up with the guys when they booked me (June 2012 if my records are correct) so it was great to catch up recently to do their pre-wedding shoot in Linlithgow, a location that I’ve shot in quite a few times before, both for weddings and pre-wedding shoots. And the great thing was, it was dry…I kid you not!!! Always seems to rain for some reason when I’m here – check out my last shoot here with Pauline & Alasdair if you want to see what I mean.

Linlithgow’s a great location for this type of shoot as it offers lots of great locations within a short hop of each other; there’s the cobbled road leading up to the Palace, the Palace itself (outside that is – inside not being permitted without prior permission..and a fee), the entrance archway, wobbly jetty 🙂 and a few other good spots as well..I could go on, but I’ll let the images speak for me instead.

Portrait Photography at Stirling University:
Lynsey & Derek’s Pre-Wedding Shoot

Really on a roll today guys with blogging and here we have my second post of the day. This time, I’m very pleased to be sharing some images from Lynsey & Derek’s pre-wedding shoot that we did up at Stirling University a few weeks back. And, wouldn’t you know it, well, you probably would, it was raining yet again. The guys are getting married in a few weeks time at Glenbervie House, my local venue, and that will be the first of a triple header of weddings that I’ll be shooting that week – good job I’m off on my hols shortly after then :-).

I’ve shot quite a few pre-wedding shoots (and weddings) in the Stirling Uni grounds and it offers a lot – unfortunately, not too much in the way of cover though from the elements, which I’m sure didn’t stop at all during the shoot. But, as I always say, no point postponing because of a wee spot of rain – the wedding day could be like that (although naturally you hope it isn’t) and we can’t move that date. If anything, bad weather just drives out the need to search for new areas to photograph in, such as what appeared to be an old car-port that we found, providing a touch of shelter and enough shade to do some flash-lit shots – shots that I’m sure we probably wouldn’t have done had it been bright and sunny, so it’s not all bad :-).

Portrait Photography in Dunfermline:
Laurie & Ross’ Pre-Wedding Shoot

So guys, been incredibly busy of late – only mid April and already 10 weddings in the bag this year – it’ll be 50+ come the year end! Anyway, that’s my excuse for my lack of blog activity of late and I have an absolute stack of weddings and pre-wedding shoots that I want to share with you. So, let’s get going and today I’m very pleased to be sharing some image with you from Laurie & Ross’s pre-wedding shoot that we did in Dunfermline a few weeks back.

If I recall correctly, the weather wasn’t too kind to us that day so instead of “easing” the guys into the shoot with a few walking shots, we got straight into the more posed creative stuff using the confines of Dunfermline Abbey for shelter until the rain eased off a little (although, in reality, it didn’t really ease off at all). Braving the elements, we then ventured outside for a few shots over in The Glen, an area I love shooting in and around, even despite the conditions.

Portrait Photography in Loch Lomond:
Kirsteen & James’ Pre-Wedding Shoot at Rowardennan

Bit lacking on the old blog posts of late guys so time to put that right. And, today, I’m delighted to share a few images from Kirsteen & James’ pre-wedding shoot in Rowardennan that we did early March. Although I’ve shot at Loch Lomond a few times before, I normally find myself over on the western shores in places such as The Cruin, Duck Bay and Luss. So, Rowardennan, on the eastern shores, was a new location for me – very remote, a bit off the beaten track but beautiful with it and, dare I say, a bit “mystical” if that’s the right word to use :-).

Looking at my planner, Kirsteen & James had one of the farthest away weddings in my files, having booked me way back in March 2012, and I bet their June 2014 wedding felt a long way off back then…not now though, and I’m really looking forward to shooting their big day at the wonderful Mar Hall come the day. But this day was all about the pre-wedding shoot and I know the guys enjoyed the session and were really pleased with the results which, as I keep saying (and I know I sound like a broken record) really does help come the wedding day.
