Monifieth High School had their 2017 formal dance at The Invercarse Hotel, Dundee last Thursday night & it was lovely to be asked to photograph it for the second year running.
Just as good as last year, lovely bunch of pupils & teachers!!
Some of the best bits below…. keep scrolling right to the end of the post for the slideshow….
Good luck to all the pupils in whatever they are off to do next.
Hope to see you again next year Monifieth High!!

Another year, another high school formal!!
Last year I photographed my first ever high school formal for Monifieth High School and I’m pleased to say they’ve booked me again this year AND one of last year’s lovely pupils recommended me to a friend at Carnoustie High which led to me to their event this year.
I really love photographing these formals, capturing what will be the last (for a while) get together between classmates & teachers before the pupils go out into the world of work or further education – an exciting time for them all.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on our side so we didn’t get many outdoor shots in the Invercarse’s grounds but there was plenty of posing & dancing going on inside.
They had the Invercarse Ballroom decorated with 2017 balloons, white table & chair covers and white lace chair sashes and a lovely “Class of 2017” cake.

Just over a month until these two tie the knot at Guthrie Castle!!
Here are the best bits from their pre wedding shoot at Dawson Park, Barnhill Rock Garden & Broughty Ferry beach…. they don’t like getting their photo taken apparently, you’d never guess looking at these!! Can’t wait until the wedding now….
My first wedding of 2017 & what a great couple to start the year’s weddings off with!!
The wedding was on Wednesday 1st February (their five year anniversary) at The Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa in Dundee.
Thomas & Daniel sent me the best itinerary I have ever seen in my life!! When the terms “meet by the string quartet” and “7pm – BAR IS OPEN BITCHESSSS!” are included you know it’s going to be a good one!!
The theme was Friends…. their order of service booklets, #teamgroom gifts, table names etc were covered in “The One Where….” & the wonderful Cairn String Quartet played the Friends theme tune for their walk back down the aisle as the new Mr & Mr, NOT Mr & Mrs as Dorothy the humanist celebrant accidentally announced them as – hilarious, poor Dorothy!!
We went to Chandlers Lane (Chandler – Friends – best coincidence ever) for the family formals & to kick off their newlyweds shoot then a few other places down by City Quay.
The reception was all about their family & friends & they have lots of them!! Thomas & Daniel singing a song & asking everyone else to have their first dance for them was a lovely touch!! Once they had finished Empire Wedding Band took over & had the dance floor filled all night.
I’m so sad it’s all over!! Congratulations again Thomas & Daniel, wishing you a long & very happy future together & well done to #teamgroom who helped the day go off as it should.
Now I give you…. The one where Thomas & Daniel say ‘I do’….

Today’s the day these two little love birds tie the knot!!
Here are some of the best from their pre wedding shoot a few months ago.
We went to the blue door & Rocks Of Solitude, Edzell then back to Brechin for some shots up at Burghill Wood. Both beautiful locations.
I hope you have the best day ever Georgia & Lewis!!
A few images from a recent shoot with Tom from Cloud Vision Pro.
Tom was looking for some new head shots for his website & social media accounts. Being a location photographer makes it quite hard to just take strictly head shots, I always want to include a bit of the surroundings too so he has a good mix of close ups & pulled back shots – perfect shapes for Facebook/Twitter timeline covers & banners Tom!!
He was happy to let me take him to a few of my favourite spots in Dundee, firstly my new favourite – Chandler’s Lane!! A beautiful little cobbled lane with a view of the Tay Road Bridge in the background. Then onto the Perth Road to make use of the amazing exterior of the Agacan Turkish restaurant. Just around the corner on St Peter Street there is a huge mural (pictured below). Then it was back down to the city centre to use a lane between the Nethergate & Whitehall Street. We finished the shoot at one of the coolest cafes in Dundee – Efes Cafe & Bistro. The owner is always very welcoming & happy to let you use his amazing little cafe for photos.
If you’re looking for head shots for your business feel free to get in touch for more info. I can offer a location shoot like this, a studio shoot or I can come to your workplace & take formal head shots as well as shots whilst you work, I’ve just recently covered a wedding with Tom, there are a few shots of him in action at the end of the post….
Some images of Tom in action shooting a recent wedding at Forbes of Kingennie….
