Autumnal Surgeons' Hall Edinburgh Wedding

It is so easy to take photos of a couple with beautiful hearts . Katrina and Jonathan has heart. At fist they did not want a photographer as Jonathan is really shy. I promised them I would give them lots of personal space and in the end he just loved it!! I went along with massive zoom lens and gave them the space to just be together. Which to be honest, is my favourite way of shooting. I love giving you the space to just be you.  I had such a wonderful time making Katrina's dress and also photographing their wedding day at Surgeons' hall Edinburgh. A day so beautifully framed with their love for each other, their family and their God.

Thank you for letting me walk this lovely journey with you both. Here is a little taster of their 715 images :)

Thomas and Antonella- Lothian Chambers Edinburgh Wedding

Sing like there's nobody listening, And live like it's heaven on earth.” “Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
 
I could not wait to photograph Thomas and Antonella's wedding. These two are passionate about the Argentinian tango and so were most of their guests. Antonella ACTUALLY tangoed down the isle and totally rocked it. Thomas and Antonella married at Lothian Chambers in Edinburgh and then met friends again at night for tango. I sat mesmerised watching them move like feathers in the wind.

Wedding photography, Ravenstonedale, Cumbria

This couple, this family, I love them!!! Sam and Patrick asked me to capture their three day wedding celebration in Ravenstonedale, Cumbria and the official part in Gretna Green. I was not prepared for how much I would laugh!! Patrick has such a wicket sense of humour and his grooms mens speach is by FAR the riskiest one I have ever heard . Very very funny. They married in the garden of Sam's mum's incredible home. A marquee was popped up in the field across the road for the Saturday celebrations. Sam and Patrick, thank you thank you for letting me share in your crazy happiness!! You and your beautiful children are super special. So glad you guys live in Edinburgh and that I can see you both and the kids regularly!

Little Alex's first birthday photoshoot

I made Anne's wedding dress a few years ago. (http://www.stephnie-anne.com/#/bridal-sage-green-wedding-dress-with-lace-overlay). So when Anne invited me along to spend some time with them on Alex's first birthday I was so excited to see her and Paul again and also to meet their little man.

Alex is SUCH a charming little boy! He looooved the camera and charmed me off my feet!

Anne and Paul, your little man is the BEST!



Family photo shoot- Lauder, Scotland

 A few years ago I made beautiful mum, Kirsty's wedding dress. We had so much fun makiner that dress (http://www.stephnie-anne.com/#/bridal-full-tulle-skirt-with-lace-bodice/) that we inevitably became friends. I was delighted when Kirsty asked if I would take some photos of her, Paul and there gorgeous girls. 

On an very dark, stormy December afternoon I popped down to Lauger...worrying about the lack of natural light. There wasn't much! If any! And to add insult to injury my camera was acting up. I wanted them to have some photos to use as Christmas presents and for that reason did not want to reschedule the photo shoot.

Photography is a very personal thing. We all like different things. But these images turned out to be some of my favorite images.I fell in love head over heals in love with little Ava (I am already planning another trip to capture her and her fab big sister). 

I love the grainy, dark photos. To me they are so atmospheric. There are quite a few here, but I find it impossible to resist any of Ava's expressions

Newborn gorgeous princess Gracie

As a present for our friends Ross and Elaine I popped over to there's one afternoon to take some images of there precious new little bundle of pink, Gracie. I have to admit that newborn babies makes me so broody. I love all the little creases and tiny perfect little features and floppy mouths. Precious little gifts to us to love and treasure.
