Great effort by Susan & Tom today! Cold, overcast but they still jumped into the pre wedding shoot with both feet. I should have known that nothing much fazes doctors. They just roll their sleeves up and get on with the job in hand don’t they? Got some cracking shots in and around Edinburgh city centre. […]

When Ash & Ross told me, at their wedding on Saturday, how long they had spent hand-making two giant aluminium letters, illuminated by lightbulbs, I knew I had to do something special with them.

After a haircut and a pair of new shoes, I stopped for a coffee in Edinburgh this afternoon. For £3, I got a lovely cup of mocha PLUS a marketing lesson thrown in! See that wee winky smiley face? Well it brought a smile to mine. And that in itself, that little personal touch, that extra 1%, […]

While it might not actually be the first Saturday I’ve had off in years, it certainly felt like it today. So what to do? A leisurely stroll around the Edinburgh farmer’s market on Castle Terrace was just the ticket. The way I see it, when you buy at farmer’s markets, you’re keeping the money local and giving it to people who have a pride […]

WEDDING TIP. If you’re going to have a photo-booth at your wedding reception, then this is always going to happen. Yep. Your official photographers are going to jump inside at some point! Which is exactly what Sandie & I did at the end of the night just after the fireworks and after we said our goodbyes […]

WEDDING TIP. As a bride, you know you’ve hired a good makeup artist when the first thing she does is sit you down facing the largest window in the room and uses that as her primary light source on your face. Nothing beats the softness and neutrality of diffused window light. The bigger the window, preferably north facing to […]
