It’s amazing how much the weather can change in a couple of months. Back in February, there we were doing Rochelle and Callum’s pre-wedding shoot at Blackness Castle in bitter cold, wind and rain…and here we were on their wedding day in glorious sunshine and relative warmth (I didn’t come home with the customary red forehead so I know it wasn’t blazing hot) – all hail to the powers that be I say!
I’m a great believer that, when it comes to photography, and wedding photography at that, what you put in is what you get out. In other words, relax, enjoy your wedding day, have a blast, don’t stress over anything and, trust me, it will show in the photographs. In my book, a photograph of a couple really enjoying themselves on their wedding day will always win hands down over an intricately posed to the hilt image, where the couple look just plain bored with the whole thing. Sure, there is a place for some stylized images but, for the main part, I really want the enjoyment of the day to come over in the images…and it certainly did this day, both at the ceremony at the amazing setting of St. Michael’s in Linlithgow and then onto the Houstoun House Hotel, with it’s magnificent grounds, for the reception.
Rochelle and Callum are two of the nicest people you could meet and, for me, it was a great honour to have been asked to shoot their big day and I’m so pleased that I’m now also going to be designing a wonderful Graphistudio album for them :-).
Guys, I know you had a blast on the day and I know I did too. A big thank you for just being yourselves and going along with everything photography speaking, and for throwing in a few of your own ideas which I always love. Here’s just a few of my own favourite images which I hope you like.
Please all feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the post as I love to hear what you think :-). Even better, if you really like these, why not give me a “Like” on my Facebook page to keep in touch with what I’m up to – would be great to have you on board!
