I love March – march hares, mad hatters, my birthday, Spring around the corner (well, probably) and all that – and, it’s when wedding season really starts kicking into gear and, for me, that usually means a ton of pre-wedding shoots up first. And this month is no exception – 4 pre-wedding shoots on 4 consecutive Saturdays – thanks goodness Spurs seem to play all their games on a Sunday these days (such is the price of success – and I haven’t been able to say that in a long time!)
Anyway, enough football talk, today I’m with Karen & Will on their pre-wedding shoot. I know Karen from my days back working for RBS so I was delighted when she asked me to photograph their wedding which is now less than a couple of months away, and I’m really looking forward to that.
But, pre-wedding shoot it is today and we’re in the Dean Village in the heart of Edinburgh. I’ve shot here a few times before and it’s just a great location, full of old world charm and all that, and I love it. It’s a sunny day (haven’t had too many of those lately) but, such is the location of the Dean Village, set as it is down in the river valley, that most of the sun is high up behind the buildings. So, what to do; well, create your own sun of course, via an off camera flash – I think it looks convincing anyway and provides us with a bit of added drama to some of the shots, backlit as they are by the flash – love it!
Guys, thanks for going along with my ideas today – hope you like these few favourite images that I’ve picked out.
Please feel free to leave a comment or two at the bottom if you wish – it’s always very much appreciated.
