We had another great year for weddings in 2012 and despite the ever increasing number of photographers and the huge amount of competition, we managed to increase the number of weddings photographed last year. It is a privilege to work with so many great couples and even after 36 years as a wedding photographer, I get a great buzz creating the images on the big day, and then creating the beautiful books after the event. I still get excited every time another book is delivered from Italy. Every wedding is special and we enjoy them all and going to great venues such as Kings College, St. Machars Cathedral, all the local castles, Meldrum House, Norwood Hall, The Marcliffe, Ardoe House, Pittodrie House, and many others. In August 2012, I photographed Sally and Matthew Finnie's wedding at the famous St. Paul's Cathedral in London which was a great experience. Also in August we photographed Michelle and Jonathan's wedding at Cameron House at Loch Lomond, which is a stunning setting. Below is small selection of images from 2012 weddings.
The most satisfying part of the job is the incredible feedback we get from our clients who are so kind in taking the time to write, email, or post on Facebook. As I was preparing to go to the AECC, I got an email of an amazing post on Facebook from Kelly Tanser who got married on the 18th October last year. This was a great confidence booster, as I was about to spend two days chatting to lots of prospective wedding clients.

Its a tough competitive world out there but your work speaks for itself. your incredibly organised manner and Pre wedding meetings ensures a wedding day runs like clock work and that's exactly what you need to ensure that all the important photos on the day are captured. Neil, dazzle the potential bride grooms with your love of all photo related and "apple" gadgets and I bet they'll be just as impressed as what we were the first time when we walked into your office . For anyone still swithering about a photographer, take some time to meet Neil at his studio and I can guarantee, him and his team will blow you away with their work!! 3 months on from our wedding and I still can't stop looking at all our photos. I am so thankful and feel so lucky that we stumbled across aberdeenphoto to capture our day and it was the best decision we ever made. xxx"
