Kirsten & Doug's Engagement Session: Sugar Sheds, Greenock

It's been a while since I did a shoot down at the Sugar Sheds, but my oh my, what a building. So many gorgeous colours and textures to shoot against, love it love it love it! And believe it or not, the weather was absolutely horrendous with heavy rain and wild winds sweeping through. Kirsten and Doug were freezing but braved the elements regardless.

Scotland Engagement Session: Portencross

We never got a clear view across to the Isle of Arran, but we did get some beautiful light in between heavy drizzle showers! Plus, Jess and Johnny brought along their gorgeous French bulldogs Cooper and Blue! What's not to like?!

Glasgow Engagement Session: The Barrowlands

The very best thing about an engagement session is walking around, looking, seeing, discovering... Laura and Dave love The Barrowlands as they've been to loads of gigs there. So what better place than to photograph them in their favourite place.

Gillian & Paul's Engagement Shoot

It’s fair to say that Gillian and Paul were a little bit nervous ahead of their engagement shoot. The only way to fix that is of course, coffee and a good old chin wag! So that’s exactly what we did down at Cafe Riva in Inverkip Marina. It had been a while since we had last sat down and talked about the wedding so it was really lovely to be able to talk about all sorts with them again.

After lots of coffee and wedding words, we eventually set out to Inverkip Beach. I wanted to do a mix of on the beach before heading into the woods. Gillian and Paul were amazing, eventually taking to it like ducks to water. I think they had a pretty fab time and so much lovely light in the woods to be had too!

Here is a small selection for you all to enjoy.

Nikki & Alastair's Engagement Shoot, Loch Drunkie, The Trossachs

I recently fell in love with a new and unexplored area of Scotland, near Aberfoyle. I have Nikki and Alastair to thank for this as they wanted their engagement shoot to take place within a stones throw of their new home, Gartmore.

I met them at their rented cottage for a chat about their wedding over a coffee before going off to do the shoot. Although they've now lived in the area for over a year, we still managed to venture into a part of The Trossachs they had never been to, always exciting! We took Dukes Pass just beyond Aberfoyle and turned onto the Achray Forest Drive. The main thing Nikki and Alastair wanted was to be captured together in this beautiful landscape. I also knew that they wanted some lovely pink heather to be featured too. With that in mind and my love of textures such as tree bark and pine cones, we stumbled first upon a fantastic viewpoint with Loch Drunkie stretched out in front of us. It was truly breathtaking.

We found a number of different spots along the way and the weather didn't disappoint either as I placed them as naturally as possible in the area they both love.

Once we had finished the shoot we took a trip to Gartmore Village where not only is their new house situated, but is also the location of their wedding. They're currently completely renovating an old house which will soon become their new home and they took great pleasure in showing me the old place, I'm a stickler for old buildings. Then it was off to the Parish Church and Village Hall together with a quick walk around the village looking for some nice spots for photos.

We ended the day with a meal at The Forth Inn in Aberfoyle which proved to be the perfect end to an amazing day spent with a fabulous couple. Here is a small selection of what I captured that day.
