Wedding Albums vs. Digital Files
December 18, 2017 by Dave in Advice 0 Comments

The digital world is pretty amazing when you think about it. Almost everything we do these days has some sort of app that makes it easier/possible/cheaper. In terms of wedding photography, you are going to get hundreds and hundreds of photos of one of the most important days of your life, and it’s fantastic! All those little moments that unfolded on the day captured forever in pictures, and some of which you probably weren’t even aware happened! All presented in your digital photo gallery for you to share with family and friends. But maybe there’s something missing…an actual physical album. I find that most people really love the idea of having a wedding album but maybe wonder if it is worth it. In this short article I’m going to set out the benefits of digital files and printed albums, so that you can decide what’s important to you. Benefits of Digital files Almost all wedding photographers will provide a USB drive so that you have your own copy of your images to keep on your computer, tablet or phone and it feels reassuring to have your own copy of all of your wedding photos. Most wedding photographers also provide an […]

Finding the right wedding photographer for you
December 17, 2017 by Dave in Advice 2 Comments

There are so many wedding photographers and packages to choose from and when you google “how to choose my wedding photographer” - an overwhelming amount of advice floods into your life! How on earth do you trawl through it all? The good news is that a lot of this ‘advice’ is simply not worth worrying about, but there are some things that matter. Are you feeling a little overwhelmed?Let’s break it down…First up, the truth is that there is no wedding photographer who is right for everyone. Almost every other wedding photographer I see at the moment is trying to appeal to as many people as possible.  There is some logic here but think of it this way; if every photographer appealed to everyone, then there would be no need to be different. Every client would be pretty much the same and every wedding photograph would be generic and bland. But the world isn’t like this and you need to find the photographer that understands what makes you unique.You also need to be really clear in your mind about what you need. GAINING CLARITYWhat’s really important to you? I want to share a real-life story.When my wife Sam and I were in […]

Glencoe Engagement Photoshoot

Carly & Rob’s Engagement Photoshoot Carly and Rob were recently engaged and decided to book in for an engagement photoshoot. They both feel a great affinity with the mountains and were super excited when I suggested Glencoe as the setting.  It was a cold and typically Scottish ‘dreich’ weather but this didn’t dampen Carly and Rob’s spirits; we had a job to do… My engagement photoshoots are very relaxed and the plan was to spend a couple of hours in the mountains, taking in the scenery, chatting to get to know each other and taking some great photographs along the way. The first location was the iconic view at the River Coupall which runs by the mighty Buachaille Etive Mòr and at an opportune moment, between the drizzly rain showers, Carly & Rob agreed to tip-toe out across the slippery rocks to get to the best vantage point. They asked how they should pose for the photographs and I simply told them to do whatever felt natural and to forget that I was there. Here is the first frame of the photoshoot, it was a strong start… …and here are some close ups taken just afterwards, it is so clear that these guys are madly […]

Woodland Engagement Photoshoot – Katie & Jack

Katie & Jack Pre – Wedding Photography Photoshoot I met Katie & Jack recently for a pre-wedding photoshoot; a woodland walk with their lovely wee dog, Harley, on an absolutely beautiful evening. We had great fun and they commented on how relaxed they felt, not what they had expected from a professional photoshoot! The happy couple will be getting married at Dalduff Wedding Barn – such a beautiful and unusual venue. Here’s what they had to say about their images: The photos look great! Especially the ones with the reflection in the water  we will definitely keep you in mind when we’re ready to book a photographer because your work is great, we are both very impressed!     If you think you might be interested in my photography don’t hesitate to get in touch:
