Rebekah & Will - Northside Farm Wedding, Northumberland

August 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
It was a real treat to drive a full six minutes to Will and Bee's new home in Gosforth for the bridal preparations. I'm usually on the road early, or even the night before. As fits their style, everything was very relaxed, but organised. They have some gem friends, too, as most of their wedding decorations, including bouquets and button holes, wer...

Paul & Megan - North Berwick Beach Engagement

July 24, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
It is always fun for me to come back to places I used to go to as a student living in Edinburgh. North Berwick is synonymous to CU evenings with a BBQ on the beach to me. Or daytrips on a train with a friend commenting on how the green moss on the rocks feels like a wet dog or Bass Rock is maybe Puffin Island. This time, I went there to meet Paul...

James & Kim - Edinburgh Botanics Engagement Photography

A week before their wedding, I met Kim and James in Inverleith Park and the Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh for their engagement shoot, which turned out to also be a family shoot, as they wanted to include their One-year-old daughter Sophie in it too. We were incredibly fortunate, because, as you will see, it had rained a lot the few days before the...

Mike & Sophie - Cuddystone Hall Wedding, College Valley, Northumberland

June 27, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
Back in April, I was at Cuddystone again. This time for the awesome wedding of Sophie and Mike. These guys have style and great taste. They chose this location to get married as it has a lot of meaning to Sophie's family. Amongst many other things, her family owns a scouts hut, and they got engaged here. It was an obvious choice, and one that took...

I met this family last summer and took some pictures in our local park for them - you can see a few of those here. May is a month of birthdays for them and with their oldest turning Three and their youngest hitting the great milestone that is One whole year out of the womb, they wanted to mark the occasion by doing something a bit fun - a cake smas...

TheMcIntosh Family - Wallington Hall, Northumberland

June 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I love this family, their interactions and visiting National Trust properties. Family sessions are usually a good opportunity for a few posed family shots, then for the children to let off steam, and plenty of pictures of everyone enjoying themselves. This session involved a lot of running, climbing trees, hide and seek, practical jokes and sword f...

Peter & Ruth - Riverdale Barn Wedding, Northern Ireland

May 22, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I've known Peter and Ruth for about 10 years - maybe more. We met in Edinburgh, when we were all students, another lifetime ago. Five years ago, Ruth was my wedding photographer. She gave us such incredible pictures that I was really quite nervous when I agreed to be their wedding photographer. But also delighted, and so excited to see them finally...

Ben & Becky - Preston Park Engagement, Teesside

March 24, 2017  •  1 Comment
I met Ben and Becky near where my parents live, at Preston Park in Eaglescliffe. It is a lovely park with an old hall, museum and a Victorian Road as part of the museum. I've shot there before. I love it. Ben and Becky were a delight, and could not stop smiling. They love the outdoors and walk and cycle a lot. On their shoot, we walk by the river...
