Katie and Mark at Kinnettles Castle

W131026NG_617

On Saturday (26th Ocober, 2013) I was photographing Katie and Mark's wedding at Glamis church and Kinnettles Castle. I had not been to Kinnettles before and was delighted that it was such a great venue for photography. Although it was cold and the skies went dark a few times, we were very lucky with the weather.

Great feedback from our clients

One of the most gratifying aspects of my job as a photographer and as a manager of a small team is the great feedback we get from our clients. I am always so grateful that clients take the time to email or write to me expressing how pleased they are.

We have a large list of these testimonials in the wedding section of the website and we will be adding the same for the portrait and commercial photography. 

Below are a few testimonials from client's, all received last week.

Just a quick email to say we love the photos from our shoot and the prints that we bought are lovely.
We bought the Groupon voucher as family were over from Australia and we are never all together at the same time.
Dave was great and really put everyone at ease.
Thanks again, We'll recommend you to friends in the future.

Morning Neil,
Firstly I just want to say thank you so much for photographing our wedding last weekend! You and Lucas did a fantastic job and so far I’ve had a great response from family and friends on the images! We’ve already gone through the photos and chosen favourites (found it really difficult to narrow it down…and have probably still selected too many!).
We’ve noticed that some of them you have already edited, and I’m amazed at how good a job you’d done on that too! particularly making the telegraph pole and white blocks disappear!

……
Kind Regards,
Kirsty
(married on 4th October at Norwood Hall)

I have just had a lovely email testimonial from Danielle and Kane about the photographs taken by David at Banchory Lodge on the 5th October.

Well what can I say… David you are amazing at what you do! Love love love my photos and you are such a lovely guy and made everyone feel at ease. My guests loved you and are recommending you to people already :) Thank you for making our photographs go so smoothly. Also they are absolutely gorgeous. I will 100% recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer.
Ps he also helped with button holes. Haha
Thanks again,
Danielle and Kane

Kirsty and Brian at Norwood Hall

W131004NG_476

Although the forecast was for a dry afternoon, unfortunately, it was raining when we arrived at Norwood on Friday and most of the photographs before the service had to be taken inside although Brian, the best man, ushers, and both Dad's ignored the rain and got a few shots outside.

Kirsty was stunning and got photographed with her proud Dad, Alan on the beautiful staircase at Norwood Hall before the service.

Fortunately after the service, the rain had eased to a very light drizzle and we got most of the photographs taken in the beautiful grounds of Norwood Hall.

Our New Website

Although we still have a lot of work to do and it is far from complete, we are getting some great feedback on the new website. We are currently adding new galleries replacing the multimedia which will keep these as an option but all the sample galleries will emulate the front page gallery which with it's clean design and simple navigation is a very effective way to view sample images.

website-imacWhen developing the website, it was very important to us that it looked good on a desktop but also on all mobile devices. We previously experimented with having different version of the site for mobile devices but the new website scales beautifully for desktops, tablets, and smart phones, and looks great  on all devices.

When the display is too narrow for the navigation bar, it swtiches to a drop down selection to choose any of the pages. The icons that are in a line on a wider screen line up vertically on an iPhone or any narrower display.

There are some key features in the website design

  • The design is based on HTML5 and CSS3 with backwards compatibility when possible, and does not use any flash

  • Responsive design that scales to screen size and orientation

  • The website is built on "blocks" making it easy to introduce major changes easily

  • Ther are a large selection of different templates available within the website

  • It is very easy to edit existing pages or add new ones

  • There is some very impressive automation e.g. when a wedding is added, it automatically gets posted to the News section, the Browse and Buy front page, and the annual listing.

  • The contact forms are built on a "back end system" which records every enquiry in a database

  • It has automatic optimisation for SEO

There is going to be lots of content added – pages for all popular wedding venues, pages for each of our wide range of products, and commercial case studies

​We are getting much more involved in website development and have several projects in progress at the moment. If you have a requirement for a new website or want to re-vamp an existng one, I would be delighted to discuss your requirements and provide a quote.
