When I thought weddings could not be any sweeter and this beautiful Balbirnie Springtime wedding happened!
Honestly love Laura and James to bits! We met up with them a few times before the big day including for their engagement shoot which was so lovely. The way these two together leave you with feelings of so much happiness. James is absolutely besotted with his beautiful Laura and I am not in the least surprise. She is as sweet as she is beautiful. We really do feel so privileged to have captured so many memories for the beginning of their life as husband and wife. If you want to, have a look at their cherry blossomed filled engagement shoot here.
Sadly for me, as the day arrived I was extremely ill. Luckily we had the incredible Zoë Alexandra step in for me which was an absolute godsend. We cannot thank her enough as she captured so many beautiful moments of Laura getting ready and so many beautiful candids during the day. I would highly recommend checking out her work. She is so talented and oh so lovely as well.
So what happens if one of us is ill you ask?
Don’t panic. The beauty of having the both of us is at least you will have one of us there with an amazing second shooter. Not only is it creatively awesome to change things up and work with someone else once in a while but we always make sure to choose someone we know is trusted, is as personable as us and is good at what they do. It really is not something to stress over.
We don’t make these decisions lightly as it’s always a tough call but if we are that ill then it needs to be done. Here is an example of a shoot I Chantal did with a second shooter at the last minute due to Scott suddenly taking ill. If you take a peek here there really isn’t anything to fret about.
The day for Laura and James was just as beautiful without me there. I was although very upset to not have been there I knew they were in good hands and I adored editing their set of photos. Those smiles! You just can’t fake that.
Leaving you all with these to see if you agree, which I am sure you will.
As usual a huge shout out to these wonderful suppliers who I know Laura and James loved.
