Couples Portraits

If you are engaged and arrange a meeting to discuss your wedding photography, we can offer you a free portrait on location or in the studio with a complimentary print worth up to £169.

Before the shoot, I like to have a chat with you and discuss locations that might be special to you, and also the styles of photography that you like.

We would also discuss how you might use the images – to display as wall or desk prints, to give as a gift to your parents, to use in save the date cards or invitations. We can also supply a guest book with images and pages for your guest to sign, or alternatively a mount in a frame for signing at the wedding.

Having a beautiful portrait of yourselves before your big day is part of your story and family history.

The Signing Frame is the perfect decorative piece that lets the bride and groom cherish the memories of their big day forever with personalised messages from their guests.

With a wide choice of exclusive moulding variations available, the Signing Frame offers an unmatched personal touch to treasure the memories that will last a lifetime.

Here is a comment from one of the couples featured:

Hi Neil,

Thats briliant they look amazing!!


Gavin and Dionne

As well as getting shots of herself with her boyfriend, Megan got one of herself and got a wall Alumini for her Mum and the text message from her is below:

If you are not engaged but want a portrait to celebrate your relationship, we can offer you £50 off the siting fee, reducing a studio shoot to £29, and a location shoot to £79.

Please contact me today by email, or book a time in my diary for an initial chat by phone or at the studio using the link below:

Andrew Cowie Construction

I was commissioned by Eilidh McCluskie of Bold Street Media to photograph the Colpy Road Development in Oldmeldrum. Eilidh is in BNI North with me, and has moved to the new offices in the Colpy Road Development.

The photograph of two of the tenants (Debra Bruce of Activus Recruitment, and Myles MacDonald of the Co-op) was used in the Press and Journal.

The new Colpy Road Development was built and is owned by Andrew Cowie Construction. Mr Cowie asked Eilidh to organise photographs of the development, the offices, and the Barra suite, a training facility available for hire.

Andrew was pleased with the first shoot:

Hi Neil,

I heard straight back from Andy, and in his words he’s “really impressed” with the photos.

Thanks again,


Andrew and Sarah Hedley both met with me while I was at Oldmeldrum and booked photography of three developments in progress, and completed. These included the new Lidl in progress on Wellington Road, the Triple Kirks development, and the new Hoover Ferguson facility at Portlethen.

I got another brief email reply re the subsequent shoots:

Really good stuff


I am looking forward to photographing more projects for Andrew Cowie Construction.

Heavy Haulage by Colin Lawson Transport

It was a 5.45am start on Thursday where I had to meet two Colin Lawson vehicles at the Global Energy Group Nord Centre facility. I was photographing the loading of 4 huge steel structures on to two low loaders to go across the road to be loaded onto a boat. These shots are to be used to show the Colin Lawson heavy haulage services. They operate one of the largest fleet of heavy haulage vehicles in the North east of Scotland, with a multitude of variable low loader trailers.

Photography for Aberdeen Altens Hotel

A few weeks ago, an appointment was made by Julia Leitch, the Sales Manager of the Aberdeen Altens Hotel. Julia used the link to my online diary on our website to request a meeting to discuss photography of the hotel. Her General manager had seen some of my interior photography and asked her to contact me which was flattering. There is a lot of photography to do but I suggested starting with a few shots first to ensure I was meeting their expectaions. We arranged to photograph a bedroom and a serviced apartment. The rooms are large well-appointed rooms and were beautifully prepared for the photography.
