East Lothian Wedding Photographer- Juliet and Matt

Although I am based in Edinburgh it great to travel to a wedding, this allows me some thinking time. Juliet and Matt married at Belhaven Parish Church in Dunbar, East Lothian on a warm September day and their marquee reception in the church gardens.

I brought Naa Shika along to assist with setting up and holding the flash and even the bride's bouquet, it is always helpful to have a assistant on a wedding because be quite demanding sticking to the time schedule.

 

To break with tradition for my blog I invited Juliet and Matt to choose their favourites of the day.

What do you think?

After the ceremony we took the opportunity to create some relaxed wedding portraits outside the church whist the large formal group was being prepared.

I would have chosen this one also because it just has the relaxed moment. I was a bit lucky with this image my flash didn't trigger but the quality of the Nikon D800 made this possible.

The staircase was light by light from a large window which gave me a beautiful soft light.

 Although we were due a visit from the tail end of hurricane Bertha it didn't stop us from photographing ideas for the wedding day. That being said Juliet and Matt were not to concerned about a little rain and we started at the home of the bride to be before heading the church venue, where we tried out lots of creative ideas.

Capturing fun moments during an engagement session helps relax the happy couple.
