coastal engagement shoot

You may recognise these two!  It was no surprise to me that Lynn & Kyle’s wedding on Islay received a lot of attention; their happy wedding day was just bursting with love and Scottishness.  However I thought it was about time I shared their sweet, coastal engagement shoot featuring their gorgeous Border Collie ‘Jed’.  This all happened on Balmedie Beach just north of Aberdeen.

Looking forward to heading back up to Scotland and catching up with these two again at Lynn’s sister’s wedding in Inverurie this Summer!

Just a few short weeks after Natalie & Darren’s engagement shoot in Manchester, I met them again at their beautiful wedding venue – Chateau Lagorce in the Gironde department of France.  The Chateau itself looks as if it has been torn from a book of fairytales with its tall turrets, shuttered windows and dramatic stone steps.  You’d be hard pushed to find a more romantic place to begin your happy ever after and surrounded by friends and family that’s what these two did one sunny afternoon in August…

newborn baby photographer

It was nearly four years after I photographed Hayley & Andrew’s autumn wedding in Leicestershire, when they invited me to come and meet this new addition to their family… a beautiful baby boy!  I had been warned that little Rory had a good set of lungs on him and wasn’t afraid to use them if the mood took him, but to me it’s just as important to capture photographs of a newborn baby crying as it is to try to coax a smile from them.  These fleeting moments are all memories in the making.  Besides, bar one brief grizzle Rory was as good as gold for his first photo shoot and gorgeous to boot!

As a photographer it’s so lovely to follow a couple’s journey together in this way and I feel truly honoured to have been asked to capture this special moment in time for the happy couple and their first child.

wedding photographer islay

I first visited Islay in January 2012 with my young man on a sort of whisky/photography pilgrimage. There is something very special about this island. It’s a real effort to get there and perhaps that’s part of it, but even on the bleakest of winter days something about the landscape captivates you. There was an inevitable blog post a few months later which, through the power of google, led Lynn to contact me about photographing her wedding there in June last year.

Reading Lynn’s first email, I had a really good feeling about the whole thing. Her kindness shone threw her words and I was so excited to be invited to capture her wedding day! At the time Lynn told me her mother was fighting cancer and how much strength the family was drawing from having such a happy occasion to look forward to. Tragically Lynn lost her mother later that year, but she certainly made her proud that day in Islay. Lynn & Kyle’s wedding was brimming with love and laughter and their family and friends could not have been more warm and welcoming to us. This was an authentic Scottish wedding with real traditions and values at the heart of the day… an absolute joy and privilege to photograph.
