This is Sandie, my studio manager and able assistant at weddings. A wonderfully talented photographer in her own right specialising in beautiful contemporary boudoir photography and also haute cuisine food photography, she is far braver than I am! And she loves her birds of prey. She’s always

Fireworks finale @ Comlongon Castle

I love twinkly lights. I love Christmas decorations. I love meteor showers. Stands to reason that I love fireworks. Have to say that I’m usually on my last legs come 10pm on a wedding night! From an 8am start mind. But a good ol’ fireworks display always gets my heart racing. I’ll

My world

There’s a light at the end of this very long tunnel where three tiny silhouettes are dancing to the sound of laughter. #sograteful

KIRSTY & KEVIN’S WEDDING AT GLASGOW CATHEDRAL / POLLOK HOUSE

It’s been a pretty traumatic 12 months for me. My world seems to have been turned upside down and given a good ol’ shake. I know everyone has their own bag of stones to carry on their life journey but about a year ago I took a big tumble and my bag of stones scattered across the

PAULA & ANDY

I’m not really a writer or an author. I wish I was. Because it’s hard for me to put into words how in awe I am of what these two have done with their lives and continue to do together. Their solid commitment to one another, the strength of their love & support for each other and to

Merry Xmas!

My 3 little rascals. Their smiley faces make my Christmas ever year :) I hope you had a fun Christmas surrounded by the ones you love!

Mileah & Tea

I love taking pictures of Mileah. This one is from Sunday afternoon when she had her best friend Tea round for an afternoon play. I love this fun picture of the two of them; the expressions, the pose – their friendship really shines through. I got a lot of positive feedback from this picture

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER GLASGOW UNIVERSITY CHAPEL, CAMERON HOUSE

West Linton Primary School

Here’s how I spent Monday morning! <SLIDESHOW> Doing stuff like this makes me happy to be a photographer and happy to be alive Best of luck to all the staff and all the kids at West Linton Primary School in their brand new building.

Just one

three sisters I’m feeling guilty. I’ve not been blogging each and every wedding this year. I promised myself in January that I would too. I never promised any of my B&G’s, thankfully. I guess because that deep down inside, looking at my diary for May – August, I knew

Bumps & babies

I didn’t know whether to post this under ‘Weddings & Portraits’ or ‘Personal’ but I had the pleasure today of reuniting with Sarah & Peter, two of the nicest, kindest people on the planet. They also happened to be a past bride & groom of mine. In fact

School Report

I never used to get ‘excellent’ at school! Or Uni for that matter. Until I took up photography that is Really proud of my wee boy’s 1st high school report. The most important thing for me is that HE thinks school life is ‘excellent’. Carry on…

shoot when you feel

Life passes by so quickly. And with my current workload, I have my head down and weeks feel like minutes. So I’m glad I set aside some time to capture the moment when Mileah bounced into the living room, straight off the school bus, with Lewis biting at her ankles. If I hadn’t reached

PARTY TIME

Here’s my very latest wedding picture i.e. the very last picture I took at the last wedding I photographed a few days ago. By the end the night, just as I’m loading my lightstands and camera bag into the car, I always know that I’ve just photographed THE best party in

Don’t quit

I’m dead proud of my wee boy. He’s a lovely lad. Popular, cheery, fun loving. Always thinking of others. And football daft. He goes to football training after school every Tuesday & Thursday and plays matches every Sunday (I’m his taxi driver & biggest fan). And

VEGAS BABY!

Been a hectic summer of weddings and still over a dozen big ones still to go and all that entails. And I’m a bit exhausted and already thinking I need a holiday. But hey, it’s been years since I’ve been abroad. Yep, that’s me in the picture, a good few years back, en route

One of my favourite shots of the boys in recent times! It goes to show what can be achieved if you’re ready in good time I knocked on Forbes’ door at 9.30am to spend an hour of photography with the boys before heading to meet Jo and the girls. When I pulled up at Forbes and Jo’s

CARA & ROSS – WEDDING AT DUNDAS CASTLE – WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER DUNDAS CASTLE

I love this fun shot of Cara and her girls at the getting-ready stage! The best bridesmaids in the world are fun, slightly mad but always give calm reassurance when required! Lyndsay & Carol did brilliantly :) Ross with his bestman Paul and the rest of the lads all suited and booted. Or rather

LAUREN & CRAIG’S WEDDING AT St GILES, EDINBURGH – DALHOUSIE CASTLE

You can just feel the excitement in the air, outside St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile, when Lauren & Craig stepped out into the sunshine as husband and wife. I love how in this shot Lauren and Craig are right in the middle of it all, simply enjoying being surrounded and congratulated by

GUS & EMMA’S WEDDING AT DRUMTOCHTY CASTLE, NR ABERDEEN – BY DAVID HO, WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Gus & Emma’s wedding up at Drumtochty Castle near Aberdeen was definitely one of the funnest weddings of the year so far. And whenever a wedding has that special X-Factor, it really boils down to the personalities of the bride & groom. You get out of the day whatever you put into it!

Here’s how Julie & David’s lovely wedding looked from my point of view. There was plenty of beauty, elegance & laughter on show as well as a whole lot of fun (with just a touch of madness supplied by the groom himself). It’s fair to say, there’s no one quite like

MORNA, DAVID & CHARLOTTE

It’s a pleasure for me to photograph families who live locally. Out in the country, there’s a real sense of community where everyone knows everyone else and we’re all connected in some way – Morna, who knows Mrs Ho, is also good friends with Marie McQuade who runs the Green
