French Connection

edinburgh, engagement, people, travel

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.

Dark Tropics

It is such a freezning cold day in Edinburgh that I had to dig up these photos from last winter when I was in Australia. I love this series that I took during a road trip up North along the East coast.  Traveling during most of the day, we only stopped for short periods of time because if you got out of the car the heat was unbearable. Blurry line of red earth and mango trees along the motorway.  Motels in the late afternoon; we always had the pool just for ourselves. Gekkos on the walls and weird tropical plants thet look monstrous in the darkness. The smell of dust, petrol, fast food and murky creeks.
