I have not posted about weddings recently and will do a catch up post soon, with some of the great weddings photographed recently.
Last Saturday I photographed Nicola and Richard’s wedding at the Jurys Inn at Aberdeen Airport. Nicola is a friend of Laura and Lesley Allan, and I photographed both of their weddings, and they recommended me. The weather was not great but luckily, it stayed dry and we got the photographs taken outside at the hotel.
When Nicola and Richard danced up the aisle after the service, it was obvious they were a fun couple, and were very easy to photograph.
We had hoped to go to a garden for bridal portraits which was not possible, but after the meal, the sun came out and I got nicer lighting for a few more photographs. This highlights one of the advantages of booking the evening service.
Richard’s nieces, Jessica and Olivia, were the beautiful flower girls and Nicola got some funny shots with them.
It was a full day service and I finished with the grand march and some dancing photographs.
You can view the photographs and slideshow here
As always we had the photographs on-line very quickly and Nicola and Richard have already viewed them and emailed me
Evening Neil, had a chance to look at the photos and they are brilliant……couldnt be happier.
Thank you again for making our wedding such an amazing day and being so efficient, friendly and professional all day.
Looking at getting one of the albums made and already picking my favourites………how many pics cank the different album sizes have?
Shall arrange to pop over soon and get all the pictures and things ordered and things once we are back from honeymoon.
Thank you again to you and Sandra for everything

We have always had a good range of packages for all weddings – from only 2 people to the largest wedding with hundreds of guests.
We have never included digital files as part of our packages but included them when a book was purchased, or sold them at an additional fee. This was not only a commercial decision but I have always wanted to ensure that anything printed from our files was printed to a high standard. However our clients want to have the digital files to share them on social media, and the flexibility to use the photographs how they want.
From today every package will include digital files making our services exceptionally good value. Not only will the high resolution files with copyright release be included, a print of each will also be part of the package ensuring you get beautiful prints and a reference to how the files should be printed. The option to upgrade to a book will always be available, with a wider range of options than ever, and at exceptionally good value.
We can offer outstanding books for every event:
We can even create books with your own photographs – we have created beautiful books combining wedding photographs taken abroad with the family and party photographs taken by us locally. Whether it is your family history or a once in a lifetime holiday, we can enhance the images and create something special to treasure and pass on to your family.
We are working on a book of a trip to Florida for a client to give to his 8 year old daughter – what price do you put on memories?
The images below show books of all sizes and include signing books (printed on special paper that can be written on) with engagement portraits, a long service awards event for Dril-Quip, properties, products, portraits, and of course weddings.
With the amazing range of sizes, finishes, colours, and prices, there is something for everyone and every budget. If you have anything that you want to commemorate or treasure, contact me to discuss creating a unique book.
From 20x20cm to 50x40cm and from 10 pages to 350 pages – there is something for everyone!
Here is a slideshow of a selection of images from Katie and Mark's wedding created with an Autumn theme. These type of slideshows look great on iPads and other tablets and are a great way to show photographs. We are currently developing a "fusion" product that also includes some video. A blog post with 2 recent samples will be available soon.

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.
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.
Jennifer & The Young Family
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!

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
