Romain and Morgan came for their honeymoon to Scotland, all the way from Lyon. Their wedding took place in a small town in the French Alps, but they decided they also wanted to celebrate their love with a romatnic photoshoot in Edinburgh Old Town.
However, the circumstances for a romantic shoot this time were a bit challenging, with the festival still on (for anyone who is not an Edinbourgeois: this means tons of tourists on the cobbled streets), and we also had a massive downpour during the session. I did my best and so did they I think, with great patience and a good sense of humour. It was a memorable session for sure, and when they emailed me a few weeks after saying that they are immensely happy with the results, I knew I would have to post a selection of these photos on my blog.
“What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.”
A few weaks ago I had the luck to photograph this lovely couple up at Calton Hill. It was a very special project with a surprise proposal for which they had came to Edinburgh all the way from Mexico… Of course, she said YES! At one point it was really hard to blink away the tears in order to be able to keep taking photos as Roberto proposed. However, after all the excitement, we managed to find a few quiet moments before sunset, and make the most of the beautiful, golden light that lit up at the hill that afternoon.
Recently I prefer a minimalistic style and editing in my engagement photos as I find it really helps me to give back all the emotions, unique atmosphere, and quiet, intimate moments that are characteristic of these photoshoots.
