Adelle & Jamie's wedding is just around the corner so we headed off to Yellowcraigs for their e-session. It was a lovely evening down on the beach at East Lothian for the photoshoot. Looking forward to the big day Day with reception at Eskmills!
It's been a long time since I've done a photo shoot in the pouring rain but I have to say, I'd love to do more. Natasha & Donald were really up for getting out there in the rain at Yellowcraigs.
We started in the woods as when we first arrived it was torrential! Bouncing off the pavement kind of rain so my plan was to start with some shots in the woodland and hope that the heavy stuff would be off by the time we hit the beach. I love it when a plan comes together!
Back to Yellowcraigs for Jennifer & Lee's engagement shoot. I love Yellowcraigs (I may have mentioned that before... a few times) so it was great to get back there on such a gorgeous evening.
Jennifer and Lee just clicked with the photos immediately. Incredibly relaxed and fun in front of the camera. Just brilliant. Love the shots we got down on the beach with Fidra in the background too.
Roll on the wedding at The George Hotel next month!
Yellowcraigs is a bit of a regualr spot for taking engagement shoot photos as it's got a little bit of everything. Beach, Dunes, and a nice woodland too. Perfect! I met up with Courtney and Lee in the carpark on what was a lovely afternoon last Sunday. The sun was shining and it wasn't even that chilly but for the first time ever doing a shoot down at Yellowcraigs the tide was in. Still it didn't dampen our chances to get some great shots but it did dampen my feet when we went over the the rocks to grab some shots with the lighthouse as a backdrop. A freak wave soaked my feet and it was freezing!
Courtney and Lee just relaxed into the shots so quickly and before long they were doing brilliant in front of the camera. I always say that this is as posed and staged as it gets as there's always so much more going on during the wedding day itslef. More opportunities to grab some candid and fun shots.
I had a great time guys and it was a good laugh too. We'll be able to look back in years and remember why were were all in fits in the woods!
The wedding is in May this year at GH Event Catering's Eskmills Venue in Musselburgh. I'm delighted to say I am on their preferred supplier list as I've shot loads of amazing weddings there and everyone has been brilliant. Great team as always down there. Thanks for a great time Courtney & Lee!
I met up with Emma and Ryan on a perfect night at Yellowcraigs. They are a great fun couple that spent the whole session laughing and giggling which makes my job of getting great natural fun photos really easy. Love it when all I have to do is raise the camera and the smiles just start. Happy days! We started off over at the beach then headed into the deep dark woods for some nice, less harsh lighting. Finally we headed off in the cars to the wheat fields further up Ware Road to get a couple of nice off-camera flash shots.
