So we really are on a roll now with this blogging thingy. Nothing for ages and then, well, post after post after post. Today, I’m very pleased to present to you images from Siobhan & Jamie’s pre-wedding shoot down by the Clyde in Glasgow. Not that long ago that I shot the guys wedding day and I’m just about to begin editing all the images from their fantastic day so all very exciting stuff :-). It was only a few weeks ago that we did the pre-wedding shoot (coordinating diaries meaning it needed to be a quick turnaround on the edit – the same day actually), but hey, I like a challenge from time to time.
We had toyed with a couple of locations for the shoot – Ashton Lane in the West End was in the running at one point and, to throw an extra dimension into the mix, the shoot was going to be early evening with darkening skies at this time of year. So, with that in mind, an urban location always seemed favourable and, having done a shoot there before, I suggested down by the Clyde which we ended up going with.
I think this is such a cool location for a shoot with all the various backdrops – the SECC, Science Centre, the BBC, the Arc and now also, of course, the Hydro. I never have a pre-set plan for these shoots – usually it’s simply a case of “let’s go walking and see what we find”, always trying to find the best light of course. Siobhan and Jamie, many thanks for going along with my ideas on the shoot. I know you liked the images and that you found the shoot really useful come your wedding day which, of course, is, in my eyes, the main purpose.
