Euan & Jakki’s 4th anniversary!

September 25th, 2014 by

Aberdeen wedding photographers:

In 2010 i wanted to set up my own photography business after taking a year out to travel in 2009.  I found myself unemployed and with limited photography equipment, my previous role as a press photographer supplied a full Nikon kit so i hadn’t bought much of my own.   I had a Nikon D300 with a 18-55mm and a Tamaron 70-300mm.  I also didn’t have much of a portfolio as my press images were copyrighted to Aberdeen Journals so i couldn’t use any of them.   So where to start?!  I didn’t have any money to buy kit so i got a job as a care worker in a lovely care home in Dyce, i really enjoyed it, the people were lovely and really appreciative of your help and time.  I also assisted Martin Leckie, a wedding photographer based in Inverurie, i changed his lenses, carried his bag and helped with lighting but most of all i watched him work.  I slowly built up my kit and my portfolio by doing lots of free/low paid photo shoots and relying on friends and family to recommend me.  When i heard my old school buddy Euan was getting married i sent him a facebook message asking if he wouldn’t mind me photographing his day, he checked with his bride to be and they agreed.  Finally i was getting in on the wedding scene!  They had a lovely DIY wedding in Euan’s parents garden, they both put in so much work and i was delighted to be able to photograph it for them.  Looking back at the photos i can see how much i have progressed and how my limited kit was back then but i still think the photos are true to my wedding style today; relaxed, fun and creative.  Happy Anniversary Mr & Mrs Wemyss and thanks again for letting me be a big part of your awesome wedding!

Testimonials

  • Donna I've just opened up the preview!! I'm crying... You are a magical photography princess, I love them. Thank you xx

    Jo Leadbeatter

  • We hired Donna through our wedding planner and since it was a destination wedding we did not meet prior to the day of our wedding - which made me nervous. However, I shouldn't have been - Donna was just INCREDIBLE! Professional, lovely and she even put up with my crazy family (which is like herding cats) and the photos which we received are STUNNING. I highly recommend her for your wedding
