The second of my “double header” weekend recently took me to another venue close to home and one that I’ve worked at many times now, Airth Castle, for the wedding of Gillian & Michael. And, as a bonus, both the bride & groom are getting ready here, meaning that not only can I cover off the bridal preparations as usual, but also some of the groom’s prep as well.
I do sometimes get asked why I work on my own and don’t, unlike a lot of other photographers, use a second shooter who, amongst a few other things, can always cover the groom’s prep shots, regardless of where they’re taking place. Well, my answer to that is always the same – I want your wedding day to be just that, a wedding day and not a photoshoot, and one of my strengths is blending into the background and hardly being noticed at all, apart from of course when we shoot the family group shots and the bride & groom photoshoot. Using a “second shooter”, for me, turns things into more of a photographic production, becoming far more noticeable and obtrusive and going against the way I shoot, so I prefer to keep things “low key”.
Gillian & Michael, a big thank you for choosing me to shoot your fantastic day. Here’s just a few of my own favourites which I hope you like – click on any image to enlarge.

Family & friends (plus anyone else who might stop by), it would be fantastic if you could leave a comment at the bottom of the post (using either of the comment box options) as I love to hear what you think :-).
