Wedding Photography at Altskeith House | Heather & Chris’ Wedding Album

Wedding albums coming and going thick and fast at the moment and one of the latest to head out the door was from Heather & Chris’ wedding day at Altskeith House last December, which was to be my first visit there and what a stunning location it was on the banks of Loch Ard :-).

Such is the range of materials and colours available these days, Heather & Chris dropped by the home office/studio one evening in July to look though all the options and make their choices, making full use of the lab’s new material swatch box.

For their album, the guys chose one of Graphistudio’s “Original Wedding Books”  and opted for the popular “crystal glance” cover complete with a lilac leather binding. This was all topped off by a complementing design box in silver and lilac linen.

A lot of work goes into the designing and preparation of an album prior to it being sent off for printing. All in, I can easily spend around a day and a half with the selection of the images, the initial design, making any changes the couple want and then finally, what I call my “signature” editing process on all the pictures contained within the album to make them look their absolute best for printing.

    Wedding Photography at Altskeith House | Heather & Chris

    My first wedding blog of the year for you today guys, and I’m kicking off with a stormer – Heather & Chris’s wedding at the very fabulous Altskeith House that I shot as the first of a “double header” weekend just before Christmas. Although I’d driven by it many times, this was my first wedding at Altskeith House and what a setting it is :-), right on the banks of Loch Ard – in my opinion, it would look amazing whatever the weather. Call me a mysterious type but, I’m quite drawn to settings such as this when there’s just a hint of “moodiness” in the sky…and I think we got that.

    I knew one of the reasons the guys booked me was for the images I create using off camera flash, and, being a winter wedding, I got plenty of opportunities to “play”! And a little light rain in the air didn’t spoil things too much either. Big shout out to Chris as well who waded knee deep into the loch to carry the girls back and forward or the shots at the boat house :-).

      Pre-Wedding Shoot at Stirling University | Heather & Chris

      I seem to have been at Stirling University quite a lot of late and, each time it’s for a pre-wedding shoot. Granted, it’s probably not an obvious choice for a shoot but, drive past the main university buildings and there’s some really gorgeous locations to play around with – derelict old buildings, woods, a lake etc etc…I could go on (but I won’t).

      Heather & Chris had originally decided on another location for the shoot but, having seen one of y previus efforts at the Uni on my blog, decided to switch, and we were blessed with some great weather as well…bonus.
