Well, it was a nice surprise a couple of weeks ago to come across this article in the Best Scottish Weddings Magazine. The article did cover some other wonderful designers and photographers, but these two pictures of mine at the top of the page have a bit of a special place in my heart. The reason?
In 2011 I organised a networking day at Mugdock park. I was accompanied by fellow photographers, Lauren Stirling and Neil MacMillan, three models also came along for the day (which began with torrential rain, so we were pretty glad anyone turned up). One of our models, Punk Morvs, was also a qualified makeup artist and did a quick makeover of Lauren and Nisha. We did some shots with some vintage clothes and odds and ends that we'd brought with us and then had the chance to play with some spectacular dresses from AJR Designs. Ailsa is a lovely woman, soon to be married herself, and she helped, with the aid of our stylist, Jackie Clark, to create some wonderful looks for the 3 models. The results being these two pictures that appeared in the BSW.
I like these images for 2 reasons. Nisha's is a mysterious, beautiful, princess like setting and pose. A nod towards the more arty, posed images that traditionally appear in wedding magazines. Lauren's is a compliment and contrast to this. In a Marie Antoinette style dress she is obviously just having fun, trying not to get blown away in the breeze! This time, a disney princess half way through her song and dance number!
Morvs also had a fabulous dress from Ailsa, but it was a bridesmaid's dress and doesn't seem to have grabbed the magazine's attention.
I should mention the images below as well. I've shot with dresses from Lady Jojo's, though not from her bridal collection and have been loosely acquainted with the photographer, Lorraine Ross, for some time.
