The Caves Wedding : Gemma & Edward

More fabulous wedding stuff for you today folks and, this one I am delighted to be sharing with you…Gemma & Edward’s big day at The Caves, Edinburgh from last November.

So here’s the thing, shooting at The Caves is one of those tricky balancing acts. It’s dark and very atmospheric – just take a look at the shots below. So, you want to keep that atmosphere in the shots but, at the same time, not provide too much of your own lighting that it lights up the place like a nuclear explosion!!! So, the order of the day is very much one of using the low light capabilities of my cameras but just adding a wee blip of my own flash light to separate the guys from the background. It’s definitely not a place for the novice shooter to cut his or her teeth :-). But I just love it…

The great thing also about The Caves is its proximity to Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile, just a few minutes away, albeit all uphill! Being November, by the time we hit the Mile, it was already almost dark but I guess in some ways that very much suits my shooting style…just love dark “moody” shots, and there’s plenty of quirky lanes off the Mile that are perfect for just this. And, we also got to shoot a few more couple shots back at The Caves after dinner in the fabulous Foundation Room and the Snugs :-). A happy man was I :-).

Gemma & Edward, thank you very much for choosing me to shoot your fabulous day. Here’s a few of my favourite shots which I hope you all like…PS – best viewed on a desktop.

Please all feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the page, as I love to know what you think…cheers all!

Looking for some “Ninja Style” Wedding Photography?

I love shooting weddings and, for the most part, I adopt a “ninja style” low key approach to the day! Most couples tell me they didn’t even notice me for the majority of the day and that suits me…it is your wedding day after all, not a photo-shoot! But, I will always make time for those important family group shots and also, a relaxed bride & groom shoot and here, it’s my aim to provide you with some truly amazing pictures…not just your standard stuff :-). To know more about my wedding day  approach to how I shoot weddings, just click here.

I’m mainly taking bookings now for 2020 & 2021…but I do have a very limited number of 2019 dates still available.

Full day coverage collections start at £1500…but don’t forget my cheeky wee discount where you can save up to £500 :-).

Mike :-).
